If you can sense the one in all creation,
And see God in every brothers’ face without respect of creed, race or nation;
If you can feel at home in every place;
If you can love your country with devotion,
And yet all the countries too;
If you have freed yourself from class emotion,
And understand the other’s point of view;
If you can sense in every beast a brother,
And see God blossoming in every flower;
If by no thought or word you hurt another,
And fill with noble deeds the fleeting hour;
If all your thoughts, words and acts are holy,
And everything from higher motives done.
And all your work is based on service alone.
You’re very near to the Divine, my son.
