Remember, it is always -
Easier to retaliate, tougher to endure,
Easier to mask your weakness,
Tougher to reveal them.
Easier to deny the truth, tougher to accept them.
Easier to waste time, tougher to expend it wisely.
Easier to criticize others,
Tougher to praise one's goodness.
Easier to read religious scriptures,
Tougher to put them into practice.
Easier to complain, tougher to sacrifice.
Easier to expect, tougher to give.
Easier to pray, tougher to surrender.
Choosing the easier path is human,
But walking on the path
That is always good, always right,
Not necessarily pleasant,
Is the road that leads you to God.
God sees only beauty.
God knows only truth.
God feels only love.
I am this God that speaks within each of you.
Listen! Recognize! Respond!
Respond to My love with pure love.
Purity is My heartbeat.
Love is My breath.
