On a carpet that is already black in color,
A little amount of dirt is not visible.
But if the carpet is white in color,
A little speck of dirt becomes conspicuous.
When I start your purification process,
I become harder on you.
The purer you become,
The closer you come to Me,
The more I expect of you.
So do not be disheartened if I test you,
If I scold you, if I surround you with worries,
If I instruct you a little more stricter,
If I appear to ignore you.
I do this only because I expect
Progress more rapid of you.
I love all equally, but I treat all differently.
Do not judge Me,
Only accept Me and My ways.
