God and I are two very old acquaintances.
You may call us even friends,
Two very old friends.
But we two friends can never fulfil each other
Although we consider ourselves as friends.
God gives me His Conviction-Power
And I give Him my contradiction-power.
Indeed, this way we sing the song
Of perpetual mutual wisdom-sacrifice.
Excerpt from The Golden Boat, Part 17 by Sri Chinmoy.
