Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 72

7101

Do you want to know
What lies buried
Inside your heart?
God-Treasure, God-Treasure
And God-Treasure!

7102

My Lord lives
In today’s reality,
But I love to live
In tomorrow’s dream.

7103

Either you are carrying
Purity-weights,
Or impurity-weights
Are carrying you.
Dive deep within to see.

7104

Be willing to try
Again and again
So that you can see
The Beauty’s Dawn
Of God.

7105

If your heart grows
In the garden of faith,
You will not see
Even one single doubt-plant.

7106

Patience is running with you.
Patience is running for you.
Therefore, yours will be
The ultimate success-victory.

7107

My prayer-life
Feeds God soulfully.
My meditation-life
Is fed by God sumptuously.

7108

Do anything you want to
Except prevent God
From singing in and through you.

7109

What is the matter with you?
You cannot even say “Hello”
To God’s Forgiveness-Heart!

7110

I have decided to love
My yesterday’s cries,
My tomorrow’s smiles
And my day-after-tomorrow’s
Surrender.

7111

Your purity’s faith
Gloriously reflects
Your divinity’s heart.

7112

The mind has to listen
If the mind is to grow.
The heart has to listen
If the heart is to glow.
The life has to listen
If the life is to continue.

7113

Year after year
I am trying to become
A choice instrument of God.
Alas, every year
I see my aspiration-goal
Remains a far cry.

7114

Great things are never easy!
But good things are always easy,
For while doing good things
We get very special blessingful Concern
And fruitful Help
From our Lord Supreme.

7115

The question most frequently asked:
Does God really exist
Either in Heaven or on earth?

7116

Do not be a fool!
God’s compassionate Self-Giving
And your real needs
Will always go together.

7117

A soulful aspiration
Must always lead,
Without fail,
To a fruitful action.

7118

He is truly happy
Who has become the bridge
Between his heart’s love
And his life’s service.

7119

If you are longing
For perfection-peace,
Then you must turn your heart
Into an aspiration-flame.

7120

Every morning and evening
God helps you
Cross His Compassion-Bridge
To reach His other Shore,
The Shore of Perfection-Bliss.

7121

Tomorrow’s satisfaction
You will find today
If you just allow God
To bind you with His
Compassion-Enlightenment-Chain.

7122

It is now almost impossible
To revive your spiritual life,
For you have taken for years
An inferiority-impurity-overdose.

7123

The fruits
Of your mind’s stupidity
Are not only extremely bitter
But also poisonous.

7124

If you think
You are your eternal stupidity,
You must also realise
That God is His infinite Forgiveness.

7125

Receive God
With your soulful aspiration-heart.
Embrace God
With your powerful dedication-arms.

7126

Unless you understand the world,
How can you expect the world
To receive you unconditionally?

7127

Yours is the vital
That is enjoying vital-freedom.
Stop it!
Immediately stop it!

7128

Meditate soulfully,
And then meditate unconditionally.
Lo, satisfaction is yours!

7129

His heart-life is not only happy
But also perfect,
For he has totally reversed
The ugly, rising doubt-tide.

7130

If you only please
Your desire-life,
Who is going to please
Your God-ordained aspiration-life?

7131

God is within,
God is without,
God is beyond,
But never beyond discovery.

7132

In the morning
My Lord is
His loving Heart.

In the afternoon
My Lord is
His tearing Heart.

In the evening
My Lord is
His fulfilling Heart.

At night
My Lord and I are
Our dancing hearts.

7133

Yesterday God was his Lover.
Today God is his Admirer too.
Do you know why?
Just because he has been
Pleasing God sleeplessly.

7134

Be careful at every moment!
Do not allow despair
To take over your aspiration-life.

7135

Tomorrow will take care
Of your tomorrow’s fears.
Be a perfect friend
To your today’s joy.

7136

Stillness of the heart
Alone
Can cure the illness
Of the mind.

7137

You are not
Your tension-tortured life.
You are
Your God-pleasing,
Aspiration-discovered heart.

7138

He is idling away his life,
Yet he thinks
That he will be able to succeed
Without even trying.

7139

If you do not fulfil
Your life’s perfection-promise,
You will not be able to see
God’s transcendental Satisfaction-Smile.

7140

Your whole life
Is totally lost
In your mind’s
Unnecessary falsehood.

7141

God will give you
A sweet Smile
If you can offer Him
Two soulful eyes
And one prayerful heart.

7142

This world is full of
Peace-announcers.
This world does not have
Peace-finders.

7143

Every day
You learn the lesson
Taught by your soul
Inside your heart-garden.

7144

I am just learning
To think of God.
Therefore
Please do not expect
Anything spectacular
Either from my heart
Or from my life.

7145

Keep your heart’s standard
Always high.
Then, without fail,
You will see a peace-finder
Inside your aspiration-heart.

7146

A genuine prayer-life
And a genuine meditation-heart
Can easily draw from God
An abundance of God’s Blessings.

7147

You are
Your ego-extravagance.
I am trying to be
My heart’s surrender-permanence.

7148

If your mind
Is always riddled with impurity,
How can God show you
His golden Dream-Boat?

7149

I shall rise,
I shall rise,
Although I have had
Many falls!

7150

I am now
An earthly-minded man.
I shall soon become
A Heavenly-hearted soul.

7151

His heart’s
Aspiration-purity
And his life’s
Dedication-beauty
Never dispute.

7152

His soul and God
Have given his heart
Permission to hear
Their conversation.

7153

Every day I conquer myself
Heroically
To please my Lord Supreme
In His own Way.

7154

A life of aspiration-dedication
Is a sure way
To Heaven’s Summit-Bliss.

7155

Unless you practise
How to wait,
You can never have
Peace of mind.

7156

He rules his mind
By serving the life
Of humanity.

7157

Lethargy,
I am not going to give up
Even a fleeting second
To please you.

7158

A heart of purity
Is indeed a citadel.
No undivine force
Can dare to challenge it.

7159

In the inner world
You will be found
A hopeless failure
In everything
If you do not aspire.

7160

God may at times sleep
Inside your mind,
But He never sleeps
Inside your heart.
There He always works.

7161

Recently my heart got a promotion.
Every day it sits with God
For Compassion
And with my soul
For guidance.

7162

God’s Justice and God’s Compassion
Always compete.
Needless to say,
His Compassion always wins the race.

7163

God’s Compassion
And God’s Forgiveness
Are never in short supply.
This is what my heart of aspiration
Has realised.

7164

How can you love God’s Vision-Eye
If you do not stop following
Your eyeless beggar-mind?

7165

Alas,
I do not know why
My aspiration, my dedication,
My surrender and my gratitude
Do not breathe
An everlasting breath.

7166

My life
Is my dedication to the heart.
My heart
Is my aspiration for Heaven.

7167

Your heart is homesick
For God the Peace.
Your soul is homesick
For God the Bliss.
Allow them to go back
To their respective homes.

7168

If you have a life of anxiety,
Then you desperately need
A life of meditation.
Your meditation-life
Will transform your anxiety-life
Into God’s God-manifested Delight.

7169

You can share your success
With anybody you want to,
But you must share your progress
Only with God.

7170

Do not doubt anybody.
Doubting is not the right thing.
Do not envy anybody.
Envy is an unpardonable thing.

7171

If you are not honest
With your present self,
How can you be honest
With your tomorrow’s highest Self:
God?

7172

Do not overlook
A trifling thought,
For it has the capacity
To bring you a stifling life.

7173

God the Eternal Now
Is always ready
To make you
His choice instrument.

7174

If you do not care
For changes in your life,
Your life-chains
Will not leave you.

7175

At long last
I have decided
To sing a God-song
Today.

7176

It is not a healthy experience
To accept thoughts
Produced by the doubting mind.

7177

Determination
Can change your mind.
Determination
Can change your heart.
Determination
Can change your life
Altogether.

7178

You alone can create
Your heart’s permanent paradise.
Just try!
You will see that I am correct.

7179

Inside your heart
Your consciousness-sea
Is always there
For you to swim in.

7180

Faith
Makes life lovable.
Surrender
Makes life enjoyable.
Gratitude
Makes life fruitful.

7181

The time is overdue for me
Not only to become
A perfect instrument of God,
But also to please God
In His own Way.

7182

Meditate every day
Soulfully and unconditionally.
Otherwise you will experience
The unexpected collapse
Of your aspiration-tower.

7183

God tells the world
That a self-giving purity-heart
Is perfect enough for God.

7184

If you want quick results
In your spiritual life,
Then allow not
Even an iota of doubt
Into your mind.

7185

Life gave him joy,
For he saw God within.
Death gave him peace,
For he saw God within.

7186

My Lord, if it is true
That I cannot please You,
Can You not please me
By excusing my ego-excess?

7187

If you do not aspire
For something infinitely higher
Than what you are aspiring for now,
Then how can you expect God
To beat your victory-drum?

7188

My heart is smashing!
Do you know what?
It is smashing all insecurity-barriers.

My mind is breaking!
Do you know what?
It is breaking all doubt-barriers.

7189

Your heart has recorded
Your life’s love-messages
To God
Again and again and again
To give you boundless joy.

7190

You have lost
In the battlefield of life.
Why do you blame others?
Do not blame even yourself.
Just aspire, do the right thing!
You will, without fail, win
In the battlefield of life.

7191

When are you going to recognise
That your life’s heart-plane
Is unbelievably behind schedule?

7192

Let not death
Weigh upon you indefinitely.
Go and make friends
With the blue bird
Inside your golden heart-cage.

7193

Alas,
His mind is now
Mercilessly caught
In an old doubt-machine.

7194

A sincere seeker is he
Who can prove to the world
That God-realisation
Is not an impossible task.

7195

His entire life
Has become
A perfectly God-controlled
Journey.

7196

To be divine
Is to sail your life-boat
Speedily.

To be human
Is to fail in your life-examination
Miserably.

7197

How can his fabricated
Perfection-life
Help him to be
A liberated soul?

7198

Never carelessly throw away
Your God-given aspiration-light,
For aspiration-light
Is God’s boundless Pride.

7199

Put your heart
Before your mind.
Similarly, aspire
Before you want to become.

7200

I do not know
How you discovered God.
In my case
I discovered God
Only with my heart’s
Sleepless gratitude.
