Sweetness
Is the most powerful strength
Of the heart.

~

Sweetness tells me
I can love the world.
Dignity tells me
I can rule the world.
With sweetness we conquer the world.
With dignity we frighten the world.
Dignity surrenders to humility’s sweetness
And finds there its satisfaction-abode.

~

Sweetness purifies our heart.
Brilliance strengthens our mind.
When sweetness enters into brilliance,
The victory of brilliance is soulful.
When brilliance enters into sweetness,
The victory of sweetness is powerful.

Love
Is sweetness embodied.
Devotion
Is sweetness revealed.
Surrender
Is sweetness manifested.

~

My sweetness is my magnet-love
To bring down God’s Compassion-flood.
My sweetness is my heart-cry
To carry me to God’s absolute height.

~

Sweetness and bitterness
Fight against each other within me
To be my teachers.
Sweetness is anxious to teach me
How to become a morning rose.
Bitterness is anxious to teach me
How to heave an evening sigh.
