Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 151

15001

O my heart,
Your patience for God-Satisfaction,
Your love for God-Satisfaction,
Your self-giving for God-Satisfaction,
Do you think God is not aware of?
He is!
He definitely is!

15002

The power of divine Love
Can never be perfectly measured
By any human standard.

15003

Because of the soul’s
Silence-power within,
We can see
Life’s sound-tower without.

15004

My Lord Supreme,
Can I not have something better
Then the mind-bound desire-life
On earth?

15005

He who has perseverance-courage-smile
Is bound to receive special blessings
From Above
And special gratitude
From below.

15006

Sweeter than the sweetest
Are the gratitude-tears
Of any human heart.

15007

Consciously or unconsciously
We all pray before God’s
Compassion-Forgiveness-Altar.

15008

God gave him a hero’s welcome
When he bravely said good-bye
To ignorance-night
For good.

15009

He who unconditionally loves
God the Creator
And serves God the creation
Is, indeed, a perfect saviour
For all time.

15010

It is a question of time.
Everybody will one day be tired
Of living in ignorance-environment.

15011

An ill-intentioned thought
Can be more damaging
Than a boxer’s heavy punches.

15012

A visionless beginning
Will definitely have
A most dramatic and most painful
Ending.

15013

A seeker’s true friends
Are those who always try
To bring to the fore
His pure, good and divine qualities.

15014

God, I shall fulfil You always
In Your own Way.
Indeed, this is humanity’s
Forgotten promise!

15015

Even the Heaven-sent warriors
Suffer and suffer
From the ruthless ingratitude-blows
Of mankind.

15016

O my vital,
Why do you want me to drink
Frustration-poison?
When I die
Will you not die with me
Immediately?

15017

God tells each human being:
“My child, I shall appreciate and admire
Only one thing of yours:
Your perfection-challenge.”

15018

The fragrance of a satisfaction-heart
On earth
Is at times envied
Even by celestial denizens.

15019

Each step towards God
Is man’s peace-blossoming promise
To God.

15020

A self-enamoured life
Belongs in a circus
With its clowns,
And nowhere else.

15021

My life’s surrender-plant
And my life’s gratitude-flower
Cherish God’s special Compassion
And Affection.

15022

With your encyclopedic mind
You want to conquer
The heart of the world.
It is impossible!
You can conquer
The heart of the world
Only with your self-giving heart.

15023

Freedom-cry
Everywhere we hear.
Perfection-smile
Nowhere we see.

15024

My perseverance in self-transcendence
Is a giant step
Towards my Lord Supreme.

15025

The tides of uncertainty
Every day are washing away
Man’s treasured determination.

15026

Inspiration-flow,
Aspiration-river,
Realisation-shore,
How I love you three!
I claim you all as my own,
Very own.

15027

Only God-dreaming hearts
Have a jasmine fragrance
All around their outer life.

15028

If you waste precious moments
Thoughtlessly on earth,
You will never be allowed to possess
God-climbing aspiration-wings.

15029

If you say that you will be ready
Tomorrow
To start your aspiration-search,
That means you do not actually believe in
The supreme necessity of aspiration
In your life.

15030

My aspiration-heart feels
That a day without God-Smile
Is like one hundred days
With ignorance-frown.

15031

If you do not care for
Your progress-delight,
That is nothing short of returning
To your yesterday’s night.

15032

A life of ignorance
Is the fastest backward race,
With no destination.

15033

We do not have to know
All the ways of God
As long as we know
The most essential way:
That everything He does
Is only for our swift progress.

15034

Each peace-step of a human being
Is undoubtedly a progress-march
Towards God’s Satisfaction-Smile.

15035

The reasoning mind
And a very limited reality
Are always found
Sailing in the same boat.

15036

My Lord,
You have given me a great many things.
Please give me one more thing:
An ever-blossoming gratitude-heart.

15037

Sweetness-fulfilment
Shall dawn on your eyes
If you can empty your mind
Of all complaints.

15038

Humanity’s hope and divinity’s promise
Have, alas,
Become a forgotten story.

15039

If you love me divinely,
Then you will care for me sleeplessly,
And you will do everything for me
The way God wants you to do it.

15040

I am not a lover
Of God’s Victory-Drum.
I am a lover
Of my heart’s aspiration-cry.

15041

God once and for all is asking me
If I really want to free myself
From darkness-torture.
If so, in no time He will grant me
His Illumination-Rapture.

15042

The mind-philosophy
Was my starting point.
The heart-spirituality
Is my present
And will be my everlasting goal.

15043

How can you survive
If there is no happiness
In your heart?
How can you survive
If there is no cheerfulness
In your mind?
How can you survive
If there is no eagerness
In your physical existence?

15044

O my heart,
I urge you to stop talking
Compassionately
To my negativity-mind.
It is of no avail!

15045

Because of your ingratitude-life,
God has completely lost interest
In your earth-activities.

15046

What is of paramount importance
Is not how near or how dear
You are to God,
But how sincere
Is your God-acceptance
And God-fulfilment
On earth.

15047

O my mind,
Leave me alone
With my own fate.
O my heart,
Do take me to the inner
Golden gate.

15048

God does not want you to suffer
From a guilt-stricken conscience.
He wants you to forgive and forget
Your past
Once and for all
And begin a new life
With a new promise-dawn.

15049

What can one feeble life do?
A feeble life can produce
A world-teacher, a world-saviour,
A God-fulfiller.

15050

O my mind-track,
Can you not see that every day
You are blindly leading me
Nowhere?

15051

On the mountaintop of my heart,
This moment I see God’s
Compassion-Eye,
Next moment I see God’s
Forgiveness-Feet.

15052

My soul-bird is proudly flying
In my heart-sky
With tremendous love and appreciation
For my heart’s progress-march.

15053

Humanity’s heavy weight
Is insincerity.
Humanity’s heavier weight
Is impurity.
Humanity’s heaviest weight
Is ingratitude.

15054

O my mind’s forest
Of ignorance-dreams,
I shall no more help you
In your desire-fulfilment.

15055

Poor God is totally lost
Between
Man’s bitterness-mind
And man’s sweetness-heart.

15056

God Himself came
And gave me a hand
When I was about to dust
The attic of my mind.

15057

The unseen may not be
Within our sight,
But it can be
On our side.

15058

A simplicity-mind,
A purity-heart,
A divinity-soul:
These are the three powerful allies
Of God.

15059

If we are good seekers,
We shall try to minimise
God’s Cries
And maximise
God’s Smiles.

15060

One question lingers
And remains unanswered:
How can God ever think
Of my perfection-life?

15061

The world is not dying for
Great leaders.
The world is only dying for
World-lovers.

15062

My heart’s inner cry is telling me
That God is fast approaching.
My mind’s outer smile is asking me
Not to waste time in useless God-search.

15063

Fortunately,
God keeps His Heart-Door unlocked
Twenty-four hours a day.

15064

You can make your longest journey
Very short
If you cheerfully sail
In your heart-boat.

15065

If you deliberately keep teeming problems
Locked inside your mind,
What can your poor soul
And your poor heart
Do for you?

15066

Each self-giving thought of man
Is a God-made weapon,
Stronger than the strongest,
To pierce the veil of ignorance-night.

15067

O moon,
Can you not carry me
On your silver wings to the sky,
So I can have a soulful talk
With the twinkling stars?

15068

Do not keep
Your outer life-door locked,
If you want God to come and join
Your heart’s secret and sacred
Family-party.

15069

You may think that there is still time
For you to love God,
But how do you know that God
Has still time to think of you?

15070

You play your role.
You intensify your heart’s aspiration-cry.
God will play His Role.
He will amplify your heart’s aspiration-cry
For the whole world to hear.

15071

When I am in a divine consciousness,
I feel that my God-satisfaction-task
Is something simply simple,
Hardly hard.

15072

God places a sweetness-smile
From your heart
And His own Sunburst-Smile
On the same footing.

15073

For such a long time
You have been closing your mind-door
With your uncomely thoughts.
Can you not from now on
Keep your mind-door wide open
With your soul’s fire-pure will?

15074

I have always known
That my nights without God-dreams
Are the precursors
Of sorrowful days.

15075

Give God your happy heart.
God will give you
His Breath immortal.

15076

If your humility-mind
Is empty of noise,
Then God will grant you
An illumining mountain-voice.

15077

O my heart’s sunlight-smile,
May my outer life join
The galaxy of your company.

15078

How close
Can your determination-mind
Take you to God
If you do not have
A dedication-life?

15079

O my seeker-friend,
Do not allow yourself
To suffer from attachment-vital
And indifference-mind.

15080

How is it possible
For you and your mind
To have forgotten the song
That your heart so soulfully
And so devotedly sang
For God?

15081

I know what happens to me
When God delays
In fulfilling my wishes.
I suffer and suffer torture-pangs.
Let me ask God what happens to Him
When I indefinitely delay
In thinking of Him.

15082

Love is never alone.
Divinity’s blessings
And humanity’s gratitude
Always stay with love.

15083

My Lord,
I am happy that You have finally arrived.
But I know that I would have been
Infinitely happier
If I could have gone to You.

15084

My Lord,
Out of Your infinite Compassion,
Do give me the capacity
To ride my heart’s gratitude-wave
Every day.

15085

God the Landlord
Never asks for rent
When we live inside His Heart-House.
He says:
“Stay here soulfully and confidently,
Eternally.”

15086

If you are
Your child-heart,
Then God becomes
Your Compassion-Sovereign-Father.

15087

Clear your mind-jungle.
You will immediately become happy.
Clear your heart-temple.
You will become surprisingly perfect.

15088

Just one thought-insect-bite
Can destroy our peace of mind
For the entire day.

15089

Our heart-cry-flames
Always climb upward
To reach the highest
Summit-destination.

15090

God’s Compassion-Vision-Eye descends
Only to brighten
Our heart-satisfaction-smile.

15091

Hope-march,
You and my aspiration-heart
Will never halt!

15092

Yesterday
Inspiration-garden-beauty
Was my friend.
Today
Aspiration-mountain-majesty
Is my friend.
Tomorrow
Realisation-sun-divinity
Will be my friend.

15093

O my mind and vital,
Our Lord God has been waiting
For you
For such a long time.
Hurry up!

15094

Be sensible!
Just because the mind
Has impurity-thorns,
You cannot, must not, ignore
The mind’s purity-flowers.

15095

If you sleeplessly think
Of your heart’s aspiration-cries,
God will breathlessly think
Of your God-oneness-smiles.

15096

When we want to study
At God’s Heart-School,
He teaches us only one subject:
Perfection-Satisfaction.

15097

Many people know what to do,
But few care how to do,
And fewer still dare to do.

15098

My heart’s aspiration
Is my morning meal.
My mind’s determination
Is my afternoon meal.
My life’s surrender
Is my evening meal.

15099

Each day the sunrise
Of aspiration-hearts
Tells us that we can eventually be
Infinity’s perfection-children

15100

May my life grow into
A God-lover’s beauty
And a God-server’s purity
To see the Face of God
And be the Smile of God.
