He preferred His juice lukewarm;
a glass of water, even an occasional

soda pop – room temperature.
And windows tightly shut

in the most sweltering weather.  O lovers!
This should make us weep hot tears -

these small preferences,
for the delicately broken

human being who held them
and Who in the large,

went about the business of service,
sacrifice and surrender, without a thought

to self or pleasure, comfort or ease,
placing Himself under His own weighty thumb,

meeting His own austere requirements –
the Epitome of servitude and mastery.

One with karma, without waver,
equivocation, preference or doubt.

O child of God, true humility is found
in the impartiality of the great Godman.
