God Remembrance

God-remembrance must change man,
For the purpose of a lamp is to give light;
If our soul is not improved,
Then reciting pious formulas is of no avail.
Renounce false greatness — become small
And selfless, and thou wilt be in Heaven.

(Songs without Names IV-II)
by Frithjof Schuon

Love is not mere sentimental play,
It is also the wish to benefit the other soul;
Whoever truly and selflessly loves someone,
Will protect that person’s God-consecrated heart.
Taking and giving: during life —
But with a view to immortality.

(Songs without Names I–VI)
