GOD AND THE ANGELS
In a pretty little story we read that the angels asked God if there was anything in the world stronger than rocks.
“Yes”, answered God, “stronger than rocks is iron: for iron can break rock.”
“Anything stronger than iron?” asked the angels;
And the Lord answered: “Fire: for iron may be melted in fire.”
“Anything stronger than fire?” asked the angels
And the Lord said: “Yes water: for fire is quenched by water?”
“Anything stronger than water?” angels asked again
And the Lord answered: “Yes, wind: for wind may scatter water.”
“Anything stronger than Wind?” angels asked again
“Yes,” said the Lord, “Sympathy is stronger; and nothing there be that is stronger than the compassionate heart.” Compassion, maîtri will be the key to the new social order.
