Silence speaks, part 4

1.

Humility
Spontaneously leads.
Pride
Powerfully misleads.

2.

All I need
Is my heart-access.
All God wants
Is my life-progress.

3.

Because his heart
Is all aspiration,
Nothing can limit
His life's perfection.

4.

The more you love
The inner world,
The more you perfect
The outer world.

5.

The mind likes
The fantasy-flame.
The heart likes
The ecstasy-game.

6.

Only a heart
Of gratitude
Can and shall own
Beatitude.

7.

O, try to be
God's surrender-toy.
In you will blossom
The flower of joy.

8.

Your thread of aspiration
Spun through time
Will lead you to
The perfection-clime.

9.

You are your life's
Lip-deep sincerity.
God is His Heart's
Compassion-Infinity.

10.

Read not the story
Of life's teeming mistakes.
Just swim, only swim,
In life's aspiration-lakes.

11.

The strength of your heart's
Aspiration-cry
Helps my life
Cheerfully, bravely fly.

12.

You will lose touch with
Your Beloved Supreme
If you do not become
Your life's glowing dream.

13.

Keep always open
Your heart's possibility-room.
God-manifestation
Therein shall bloom.

14.

During your great
Heavenward trip,
Maintain your life's
And soul's friendship.

15.

God has written His
Perfection-Book for man.
Not to read the book
Is man's secret plan.

16.

The human mind
Knows how to separate.
The divine mind
Knows how to congregate.

17.

I pray to God
For my heart's satisfaction.
God prays to me
For my life's perfection.

18.

While your heart was
Embracing God,
Your mind was busy
Chasing God.

19.

Who really wants
God's Satisfaction?
Who does not want
God's attention?

20.

Yesterday I saw you playing
With your mind's confusion.
Today I see you playing
With your heart's peace-profusion.

21.

Allow your vital and mind
To prove
That they still have the power
To improve.

22.

If you enjoy
Your mind's proud noise,
How will you fad
Your heart's pure poise?

23.

Do you want
Your life to be tall?
If so, start
Embracing all!

24.

O marvel-producing
Fulness-faith-mind,
Yours is the duty
To transform the blind.

25.

How to have conviction
In your manifestation?
For that you need
Aspiration-foundation.

26.

Sail your non-expectation
Life-boat, sail!
You will always win
And never fail.

27.

Leading my life's parade
Slow and long,
My Lord goes, singing His
Oneness-Song.

28.

Trust not
The cobweb-mind of confusion
To transform
Your life-illusion.

29.

My sleepless
God-hungry heart
Never knows
Depression-dart.

30.

The concentration
That defies description
Can give your life
Complete satisfaction.

31.

Touch God's Haven-Feet,
Your heart's joy to increase.
This is the easiest way
Your Lord Supreme to please.

32.

O aspiration-heart
Of beauty,
Through you my Lord
Fulfils His Duty.

33.

Faith: use it
To fly in God's own Sky.
Faith: lose it
And become an orphan-cry.

34.

You have long overstayed,
Doubt; go home immediately!
Once more my mind and I
Will together live happily.

35.

I need only God's Love.
You ask me why?
Because I live in
His Oneness-Sky.

36.

Dive within, dive!
Run within, run!
Your life in God's Heart
Once more has begun.

37.

My mind, you are only
A brute pretension.
Your pygmy-life carries
No good intention.

38.

If you are truly
Your heart's glad soulfulness,
Your mind can harbour
No mad bitterness.

39.

My heart's spokesman
Is my sweet Supreme.
My life's only goal:
His Heart's blossomed Dream.

40.

Give no sad smiles.
Sing no sad songs.
Love all glad thoughts.
Fight all bad wrongs.

41.

Who is fond of
Animal jealousy?
Not I! I love
God's Oneness-Ecstasy.

42.

Imagination wants to know.
Inspiration wants to flow.
Aspiration wants to grow.
Realisation wants to glow.

43.

If your heart
Is ready to grow,
Then your life
Is bound to glow.

44.

The divine in us
Always pleads.
The human in us
Rarely heeds.

45.

Since God has not ever
Abandoned you in your plight,
Can you not against ignorance
Put up a brave fight?

46.

Be the boss of your mind;
Be your own supreme boss.
You can easily conquer
Your feelings of loss.

47.

Throw aside your stupid
Self-imposed load.
Ahead of you stretches
The long delight-road.

48.

Your heart must in everything
Always prevail.
Then your life's progress-boat
Will swiftly sail.

49.

"Give me, give me!"
This is a common theme.
"Take me, take me!"
This is a fulfilling dream.

50.

Within and without
Temptation-lance.
God's Compassion-Smile
My only chance.

51.

Day and night man plays
God-forgetfulness-game,
Yet he and his mind-rogue
God's Compassion blame.

52.

Your earth-bound hunger-life
Is all confusion-night
Because your heart has lost
Its ancient oneness-light.

53.

Peace is the only joy.
I long for it, I long.
Sleepless my heart desires
To hear its fulness-song.

54.

Because you daily follow
Your mind's complication-map,
You never can escape
Earth-life's temptation-trap.

55.

Your Lord Supreme
Deserves your love,
Because He thinks
Of your life from Above.

56.

Fear not, seeker, fear not
The problems of the past!
Your silver faith in God
Will silence ignorance-knife.

57.

Surrender and surrender
All separations
For your seeker-life's
God-preparations.

58.

You suffer from terrible
Bondage-life
Because your eyes love
Desire-knife.

59.

Tolerate the foolish
Errors of man
To fulfil your life's
God-fulness-plan.

60.

Forgive the blind and weak
Human dance
To see the Lord's sweet
Compassion-Glance.

61.

What can save me,
If not my constant oneness?
What can fulfil me,
If not my surrender-fulness?

62.

Don't magnify, but purify
Your future torture.
Don't belittle, but treasure
Your faith-rapture.

63.

In vain God comes to me
Again and again.
Does it not pain His Heart?
Does it not pain?

64.

Tell me, my Lord Supreme,
Tell me,
Is my heart every day
Nearing Thee?

65.

Purity's breath today
In my heart springs.
God-Satisfaction
It measurelessly brings.

66.

Daily I ask
My obedience-mind
My Supreme's
Blessing-Light to find.

67.

O God-loving
Heart of mine,
Surrender-joy
Is your only shrine.

68.

Can you believe this truth,
Can you believe?
My mind is prepared today
Peace to receive!

69.

O give me
The silver sincerity to ask,
What is my
Task supreme, my life's only task?

70.

What is an advanced degree
In spirituality?
What else, if not the seeker-heart's
Diamond-purity?

71.

My life is in my Lord's
Sleepless Compassion-Heart-Nest.
In Him alone my life's
Surrender-gratitude-harvest.

72.

No more, no more
Stark despair-dart!
God has given me
A hope-heart-start.

73.

Because you have thrown off
Your heart's impurity-load,
You can walk today on
Eternity's ecstasy-road.

74.

Your mind-diary must be burned
By your pure heart-fire.
Only then can your God-life
Climb steadily higher.

75.

Why do you fear?
You need fear no more,
Since God Himself is standing
At your open heart-door.
