Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 30

2901

God has granted you
His uncharted Vision-Will
Because your life has become
Your heart’s oneness-thrill.

2902

The surrender-heart
Of a sleepless God-lover
Finally becomes
The most precious sweetness
Of God’s Compassion-Dewdrops.

2903

My life was born
With God’s Beauty.
My heart will live
With God’s Immortality.

2904

Vital joy without purity
Is a sign of inner poverty.
Purity without self-giving
Is an impossible reality.

2905

Can fear ever save me?
Yes, it can!
Fear can save me
Only if I am soulfully afraid
Of my Beloved Supreme
When I am about to do something
To dissatisfy Him.

2906

The inner world is open
To the heart-voyager.
The inner world is closed
To the truth-doubter.

2907

O my heart,
Do not think
That God does not care for you
Just because my soul
Is swifter than you.
My Lord does care for you
With His blessingful Appreciation.

2908

Every morning he practises
His life’s surrender-act,
And every evening he practises
His life’s gratitude-act.

2909

God felt miserable
When He saw
The funeral-flames
Of my aspiration-deceased
Temple-heart.

2910

His parents
Should have informed God,
The unparalleled Doctor,
About the incurable disease
He was born with:
Ignorance.

2911

Heaven will not allow you
To come in
Unless you buy
A round-trip ticket
From earth.

2912

Heaven wanted him
To end his life-journey
So Heaven could get from him
Most authentic news about earth.

2913

You will be given
A free ticket to Heaven
If your heart is strong enough
And your life is pure enough
To knock on the world’s
Aspiration-door.

2914

Before you check into God’s Hotel,
Be sure that you have
Carried with you
Your heart’s unconditional
Surrender-passport,
And that you have totally discarded
Your hesitation-mind.

2915

One pure second
Of your heart-life
Can embody the power
Of ten God-manifesting
Roaring hours.

2916

Each moment shall become
A fruitless eternity
If the calculating mind
Does not surrender
To the endless silence
Of the heart.

2917

Little lives are not false;
They are weak.
They, too, can be turned into
Radiant images of the soul.

2918

Even if you fail
In your inner examination,
Do not allow your mind
To become a surge of revolt,
For you will be given
Another chance.

2919

My mind,
Will you keep a secret?
My Lord has decided
To sing the song of illumination
Inside you.

2920

He who wants to treasure
Only the future
Is sailing the boat
That will definitely sink
On the way.

2921

Someday meditation
Will not only give you joy
But also increase
God’s Satisfaction-Power in you.

2922

Mental scholars are afraid
Of approaching the truth,
Unlike truth-seekers
And God-lovers.

2923

You do not have to remain a candle flame
All your life,
For God will definitely grant you
One day
One of His Wisdom-Suns.

2924

Who can expect a dramatic change
In his life?
Either he who has surrendered
To his own ignorance-night,
Or he who has surrendered
To God’s Vision-Light.

2925

Unless you renounce your pride
In knowing the world
And in not knowing the world,
You can be neither safe nor perfect.

2926

The common problem is:
Man wants the uncommon solution.
The uncommon solution is:
Man satisfies himself
By getting the things
That he does not have.

2927

Doubt comes to tell you
Not only how far away you are
From God
But also how close you are
To your death.

2928

Even his earth-bound time
Flows to God’s
Infinite Shores.

2929

Your faith is dying!
Be prepared to face
Untold inner pangs.

2930

Two most precious lifelong experiences
Are engraved on my heart:
I am not indispensable
And
My Lord Supreme is unconditional.

2931

You will be totally lost
In your life’s quagmire
If you do not try
A new approach —
I mean an unconditional
Surrender-approach
To God’s Will.

2932

I have seen many
Indifferent minds,
But not even one
Indifferent heart.

I have felt many
Insecure hearts,
But never
An insecure soul.

2933

If you love to dream,
You will have endless light.
If you love endless light,
You will become God’s Power-Hand.

2934

Every morning
You must keep a new prayer
In your aspiring heart’s
Dedication-pocket.

2935

From God’s Hospital
I have received the latest report:
My doubtful mind is on the road
To its complete recovery.

2936

My aspiration-heart has consumed
The fear-spreading vocabulary
Of my doubting mind.

2937

Mine is the faith-dictionary
That has never been challenged
By doubt’s limited vocabulary.

2938

There is no difference between
A God-appointed Ambassador
And a God-personified Lover.

2939

My prayer-life
Wanted to bind God
Unconsciously.
My meditation-life
Rectified it
Miraculously.

2940

Your life’s tape recorder
Is only to record
God’s Victory-Messages,
And not
Your life’s past failures.

2941

Since your frustration-vital
Does not want to commit suicide,
Ask your illumination-soul
To be strict with the wild life
Of your vital.

2942

O my faith,
I shall count on your full support
When I go to my new Employer,
God,
To ask for a job.

2943

How can you allow
Your mind’s ugly doubts
To sneer at earth’s
Blazing aspiration-flames?

2944

In the battlefield of life
The human mind
May pass the examination,
But it will never be able
To surpass the heart.

2945

Every accident
Can be prevented
Either by
God’s powerful Smile
Or by
Man’s soulful cry.

2946

The fine for disobedience
Is so exorbitant
That finally his mind
Has had to resort
To an obedience-life.

2947

Even a brick wall
Has more receptivity
Than a desire-bound
Ingratitude-heart.

2948

God’s Compassion-Net catches all,
Only to liberate them
In His Infinity’s Satisfaction-Delight.

2949

A proud man wants to lead the world,
But he fails.
A humble man wants to follow the world,
But when he is about to follow the world
God appears
And starts leading him.

2950

If you see
With the eye of your soul,
You will never be able
To tell the world
That God is His Negligence-Eye.

2951

What your life now is,
Is a visible sincerity.
What God is going to give your life
Before long
Is an invincible purity.

2952

When my conscience advises me
And I listen to it,
My life becomes the cornerstone
Of my Lord’s inner creation.

2953

In my inner world of aspiration
And in my outer world of dedication
One thing reigns supreme,
And that is the Silence-Ecstasy
Of my Beloved Supreme.

2954

The face of Heaven
Is more beautiful than powerful.
The heart of man
Is more fearful than cheerful.

2955

His mind is clothed in silence.
Therefore
Today his heart is able to sing
Divinity’s hymn
For the heart of humanity.

2956

Two are the companions
Of my sleepless soul:
Man the preparation
And
God the Satisfaction.

2957

If you do not want
God’s Compassion
To open your mind’s
Closed shutters,
Then God’s Justice,
With no hesitation,
Will do the needful.

2958

Prayerful
Are the eyes of a dreamer.
Beautiful
Is the heart of a lover.
Fruitful
Is the life of a server.

2959

What has obliterated
His hope-life?
Not his doubtful mind,
Not his insecure heart,
But the unwillingness
Of his ego-born life.

2960

I have discovered
A new road to peace:
“My mind does not know anything.”

2961

My Lord Supreme,
You can neglect anything
In my life
Except my poor and fragile heart.

2962

Three deadly weapons:
An ingratitude-heart,
An all-knowing mind,
An ego-granted realisation.

2963

If you are devoted
To your own self-glory,
How will you ever dare
To demolish your life’s inner barriers?

2964

He dreams God’s Dream
Every day
In his purity-sanctified heart.

2965

There is only one
Secret and sacred chain
That links man and God,
And that chain is
Man’s cheerfulness-heart.

2966

Do you want to hear
The heartbeat of oneness?
Then start climbing the hills
That separate your mind
From your heart.

2967

There can be a safe
And sunny world for you,
But have you played your role?
Have you put your body, vital,
Mind, heart and soul
In perfect order?

2968

God fills my heart
With His own Heart’s
Silence-Smiles
Every day.

2969

Can receptivity be learnt?
Yes!
Your soul’s luminosity
And your life’s spontaneity
Can teach your heart
How to be receptive.

2970

If you are ready
To walk bravely
Along life’s despair-road,
God will grant you
His Beauty’s Vision-Crown.

2971

Can a snow-white purity-mind exist
Like a snow-white purity-heart?
Yes, it can!
Ask your soul.
It will help you unconditionally
To get a snow-white purity-mind.

2972

Your mechanical mind
Will always be afraid
Of heading Heavenward
For abiding peace.

2973

God loves me; I need Him.
May this experience-story
Remain deathless,
Even when my mind
Is doubtful and obstinate.

2974

You grope in the darkness
Of your mind
Because you have not prepared
A garden-shrine
Inside your heart.

2975

If you want to dine
In God’s Satisfaction-Restaurant,
Never enjoy vacation —
Not to speak of temptation —
In the inner world!

2976

It is not that every day
Doubt does not invade his mind.
But the moment
Doubt invades his mind,
He destroys it!

2977

If your inner house
Is not supported
By hope-pillars,
How will your outer life succeed
And how will your inner life proceed?

2978

If you do not include
God’s Compassion
In your daily life,
You will, without fail,
Meet with the red danger sign.

2979

If your mind is afraid
Of climbing higher,
Then how will your life
Travel into Infinity?

2980

Now that he is all love
For his aspiration-game,
His desire-game
Has totally left him.

2981

On the threshold of a new year
May our minds have
A new determination-dictionary
And may our hearts have
A new dedication-dictionary.

2982

If you are not inspired
To improve your spiritual vocabulary,
Your life’s dreams
Will never be transformed
Into reality.

2983

My heart’s
Two secret and sacred longings:
I shall please God
In God’s own Way.
I shall no longer carry
My past failure-life.

2984

My body, vital and mind
Are now unanimous
In their decision:
They will study at the heart-school,
And the only teacher
Will be the soul.

2985

What is my spiritual wealth?
My love of God.
What is God’s spiritual Wealth?
My heart’s oneness-smile.

2986

Unless you point-blank deny
The animal in you,
The human in you
Will not love you
And the divine in you
Will not utilise you.

2987

A seeker and a quitter
Have absolutely nothing in common.
They follow their own ways
Right from the beginning to the end.

2988

God wants each and every human being
To hoist His Victory-Banner.
But who is ready?
Not you!
Who is ready?
Not he!
Who is ready?
Not I!
God is helplessly looking
For the hero-instrument
Who will hoist His Victory-Banner.

2989

Transformation is a slow process.
But once it is achieved,
It is treasured by both
Humanity’s heart-cry
And divinity’s soul-smile.

2990

Unless you correct yourself,
Your imperfect life
Not only will torture you
But also will lower the standard
Of the world.

2991

A God-lover
Does not know how to hide.
He does not know
How to expose himself, either.
He only knows
How to reveal His Beloved Supreme.

2992

With love
I see the world.
With devotion
I feel the world.
With surrender
I become the world.

2993

The mind talks and talks
So that it does not have to listen.
The heart remains silent
So that it can all the time listen.

2994

One day
Spirituality will become
Not only comprehensible
But also acceptable
And adorable.

2995

Do not allow doubt-storm
To destroy your heart’s
Beautiful light and delight-camp.

2996

Do not play with untamed thoughts
From the mind-jungle.
They are extremely dangerous!

2997

Alas,
When God telephoned me,
I was playing hide-and-seek
With my doubting mind
And my insecure heart.
Therefore
I could not answer the call.

2998

You can make your mind
Claim God
The way your heart
Has claimed God.
First beg your mind.
If you do not succeed,
Then force your mind!

2999

In my life
There is nothing to say
And there is nothing to understand.
There is only one thing,
And that is
Constant self-revelation.

3000

I give credit to my gratitude-heart
For everything I know.
I give credit to my surrender-life
For everything I have become.
