Peace: God's Heart-Home, part 1

1.

When everybody is
Everybody's equal,
The peace-heart blossoms.

2.

Peace
Is the indispensable source
Of immortal Delight.

3.

Without peace
The mind
Will eventually drown
And the heart
Will eventually die.

4.

The mind counts
Troubles.
The heart measures
Peace.

5.

A self-transcendence-mind
Has peace.
A oneness-heart
Is peace.

6.

Peace reveals
The absolute excellence
Of human life.

7.

Not only readily
But completely
I depend on my heart's peace.

8.

Peace:
Our surrender-traveller's
Universal passport.

9.

When I am
My peace-empty mind,
God becomes
His Joy-empty Heart.

10.

Peace sleeplessly feels
God's Blessing-Touch
In everything.

11.

Ignorance
Cannot enslave
A man of peace.

12.

We must climb
The peace-tree
To pluck oneness-fruits.

13.

God invites only
A heart of peace
To participate in
His Cosmic Game.

14.

No man can receive
God's Peace-Abundance
Unless he can show God
His God-hunger-permanence.

15.

Once you stop singing
Your self-interest-songs,
You will hear the melody
Of God's Peace-Manifestation.

16.

No citadel
Is as strong
As our heart's peace eternal.

17.

Faith embraces
God the Many.
Peace is
God the One.

18.

The mind has no peace
Because it is swallowed
By the darkness of desire-night.

19.

If we can simplify
Consciously and soulfully
Life's immediate complexities,
Then we are bound to have peace.

20.

My Lord, I need peace.
Therefore, do keep my mind
Always in Your Presence
And my heart
Always at Your Feet.

21.

When the divine attitude
Purifies the human attitude
Peace dawns in our aspiration-life.

22.

There is only one way
To earn God's Smile
Every day,
And that way is
To have peace of heart.

23.

Shun the very breath of negativity!
Lo, your mind has become
The possessor of peace.

24.

It is not a better location
But a stronger motivation
That can definitely give us peace.

25.

Expect not!
Suspect not!
Lo, peace is all yours.

26.

God is so kind
And compassionate to me
Because I was introduced to Him
By my dearest friend,
Peace.

27.

The mind that is empty
Of peace
Is always madly hurrying
Towards nowhere.

28.

I have peace in abundance
Only when God speaks directly
To my aspiration-climbing heart.

29.

The spirituality-student
Who is fluent
In God's Oneness-Language
Can swim in the sea of peace.

30.

Of all our divine virtues,
Peace is the only virtue
That has the capacity to manifest
Our heart's limitless possibilities.

31.

When we have peace,
We come to realise
That our faith in God
Is a direct and blessingful Gift
From God Himself.

32.

Criticism takes away
The very life-breath
Of our peace-heart.

33.

Every day I magnify my ego.
But if every day I can nullify my ego,
Peace is bound to befriend my heart.

34.

When the mind loses peace,
The hope-heart-flower
Loses all its beauty and fragrance
Immediately.

35.

How can you expect peace
When you serve God grudgingly
And not self-givingly?

36.

To be a hero supreme,
Do not allow your mind
To be invaded by uncomely thoughts.
Lo, you will be the discoverer
Of peace.

37.

Every day
Sing prayerfully and soulfully
Your God-surrender-song
That God Himself has taught you.
You will without fail have peace.

38.

You can start your journey
Anywhere you want to,
Even in your emotional vital.
Once your emotional vital
Enters into your devotional heart-garden,
You will become the beauty and fragrance
Of peace-blossoms.

39.

I feel peace in abundant measure
When I come to realise
That I belong
To God's Compassion-Smiles
And God belongs
To my aspiration-tears.

40.

A man of peace
Has the capacity
To persuade the multitude
To cry for God's Light.

41.

Peace
Is the only soil
In which humanity's perfection
Shall grow.

42.

My heart knows
That it costs nothing
To be a dreamer and lover
Of peace.

43.

My mind has to know
That it costs nothing
To be a seeker
Of peace.

44.

Peace
Is the only end
That embodies
Humanity's
Goal supreme.

45.

I do not need
An earth-shaking speech
I need
A peace-blossoming earth.

46.

Peace
Has finally ended
The struggle between
My heart's faith
And my mind's doubt.

47.

Yesterday
Peace gave me
The choice of freedom.

Today
Peace gives me
The voice of freedom.

48.

My desire-mind sows
And counts worries.
My aspiration-heart grows
And collects peace.

49.

God gives me
What I do not have:
Peace.
I give God
What He does not have:
Ingratitude.

50.

Peace
My heart invoked
For my mind.
Now the reign of peace
Is beginning
In my mind.

51.

A speaker-mind
Peace avoids.
A seeker-heart
Peace greets.

52.

When I offered
My portfolio of earthly achievements
To my Lord Supreme,
He sighed and sighed,
For I did not include
My peace-achievement.

53.

When you have
Peace of mind,
You realise that there can be
No unattainable heights.

54.

Peace
Is easily available
In the morning light
Of sincerity.
Peace
Is always available
In the evening life
Of purity.

55.

An austerity-mind
Cannot guarantee us peace,
But a purity-heart
Can definitely guarantee us peace.

56.

Peace
Descends on earth
From the highest Home
Of God.

57.

When we have peace of mind,
We shall start climbing upwards
From our untold miseries.

58.

Peace
Is the only divine virtue of ours
That can summarise
Our heart's aspiration-cry
And our life's dedication-smile.

59.

A man of peace
Is not afraid
Of losing his peace
To the thunderous applause
Of the multitude.

60.

We can change the world,
But not improve it,
If we do not have peace.

61.

If peace does not
Touch my heart,
Then I shall be compelled
To speak to God
With a heavy sigh.

62.

Alas, we do not know
When humanity will be blessed
With peace
Between the cradle and the grave.

63.

We get peace in abundance
Only when we are able
To run
Along life's perfection-path.

64.

God asks me every morning,
"My child,
Is it such a difficult task
To say a prayer for world-peace?"

65.

We cannot measure peace
By our flying years.
We can measure peace
Only with our streaming tears.

66.

A heart of peace
Is made of God's
Own Sweetness-Smile.

67.

My earth-bound desire
Cherishes
False peace-hopes.

68.

My Heaven-free aspiration
Affirms
Genuine peace-promises.

69.

God has His own secret Sorrows.
Alas, my peace-empty life
Is shamelessly adding to them.

70.

World-peace
Can never be founded upon
Compromise and barter.

71.

My heart of peace
Every morning and every evening
Is blessed by my Lord's
Paradise-Smile-Eye.

72.

Speed
Is the success-thirsty
Runner in me.

Peace
Is the progress-hungry
Seeker in me.

73.

Peace
Is not a rapid-growth
Plant.

74.

Peace
Is a solid-growth
Tree.

75.

God shares
His sweetest Peace-Breath
With my prayerful and cheerful
Obedience-life.

76.

A peace-dreamer
Is a pilgrim
Of Infinity's Sky.

77.

There is no
Real peace
In imaginary tomorrows.

78.

Peace
Is not to be found
In self-pity-exercises.

79.

Peace
Is a perfect stranger
To excitement.

80.

Peace
And enlightenment
Are like flowers
And fragrance.

81.

The path of peace
Is sunlit
For humanity's future.

82.

Love illumines
My life.
Peace fulfils
My heart.

83.

Peace and satisfaction
Are Eternity's
Friends.

84.

A man of peace
Is incapable
Of world-indifference.

85.

When self-doubt
Departs,
God-Peace
Arrives.

86.

When we have peace of mind,
Attachment after attachment
Disappears from us.

87.

A heart of peace
Hears
God's thunderous Applause.

88.

When we have peace of mind,
We can ignore
Even major upheavals in life.

89.

Peace never comes
From nothingness
But only from fulness.

90.

As Truth
Is the greatest news,
Peace
Is the best news.

91.

Cheerfully surrender
To the inevitable!
Peace will be all yours.

92.

I am at peace
Not when my soul
Sees with my heart
But when my heart
Sees through my soul.

93.

I become the possessor
Of peace-abundance
When I prayerfully adapt myself
To God's Ways.

94.

Peace
Is not on your sickbed.
Peace
Is not in your grave.
Peace
Is inside your constant
God-obedience-heart.

95.

Lethargy's peace
Is no peace.
Lethargy masquerades as peace.

96.

The prayerful offering
Of one's life to God's Will
Is indeed peace.

97.

Not the mind-forest-wanderer
But the heart-garden-lover
Has peace in abundance.

98.

God and I get peace
When we can mutually whisper
Our heart's secrets
To each other.

99.

When I pray to God,
Peace-power
Swiftly comes to me.

When I meditate on God,
Peace-shower
Slowly, steadily and unerringly
Comes to me.

100.

Peace
Is the most reliable
And most expert charioteer
That carries our heart
To God's Heart-Home.
