Silence speaks, part 2

1.

To build a perfection-pyramid
If you ever hope,
Then break asunder within, without
Your attachment-rope.

2.

The mind pretends to know God.
The mind only pretends.
The heart depends on the Lord,
Only on the Lord depends.

3.

Only after
The division-impurity's death
Can you become
Eternity's oneness-breath.

4.

God grants us His special Love
Not because we are always the winners,
But because we offer our special love
To the poor ill-fated, heart-broken losers.

5.

My Lord Supreme is distant
Like a fading star.
I feel His Forgiveness-Heart
Is far, very far.

6.

Unlock
Your negative mind.
Behold,
God is just behind!

7.

Defend your heart's
Gratitude-fort.
Lo, you are at
Perfection-port.

8.

In your impure mind-sea
Swim not!
By delight you will never
Be sought.

9.

One mountain-high
Experience-light:
My tomorrow's life
Shall know no night.

10.

Daily I soulfully pray
To the firmament
To make me a full-time
Seeker permanent.

11.

Your heart is the beauty
Of a fairy,
For you are gratitude —
Love-diary.

12.

Be sure, be sure, be sure,
O seeker-friend, be sure!
God will never allow you
To remain a poor failure.

13.

Doubt can never climb
The soul's mountain.
Fear can never see
The heart's fountain.

14.

My Lord,
Your Life is pulling me
To claim Your Vision-Light.

My Lord,
Your Voice is pushing me
To destroy ignorance-night.

15.

Ignore the buzz
Of human opinion.
It is empty of
God's Delight-Union.

16.

Now that all your fear
Is in the past tense,
You will be freed from
Your mind-jungle dense.

17.

Never exit, never,
From the sunlit heart-road
If you want not, seeker-friend,
To carry ignorance-load.

18.

Silence is not loved
By the desire-man.
Alas, this was never
God's supreme Plan.

19.

My Lord is happy with me
Because I dearly love Him.
My Lord is proud of me
Because I am His Sun-Dream.

20.

God will grant you
His Heart's Royalty.
You must give Him
Your life's loyalty.

21.

An impossible task
To find your soul's heart-smile
In your God-forgotten,
Truth-discarded life's mind-pile.

22.

If yours is the eyeless mind
That resists,
Then yours has to be the heart
That insists.

23.

Now that you have summoned
Your heart's surrender-strength,
God will grant you cheerfully
His Life's Immortality-Length.

24.

God is not baffled
By man's ignorance-night,
But He is baffled
By man's unwillingness-height.

25.

If you want to slay
Your giant desire-dragon,
Then forever stay
In God's Compassion-Wagon.

26.

If you have a loving heart
And an illumining soul,
How can you refuse to play
Your high God-ordained role?

27.

You have become
A truly hopeless case.
You have now failed
In your Heavenward race.

28.

The duty of a Master
Is to take you faster
Where you are supposed to go,
O God-seeker,
Casting aside your age-old ignorance-fever.

29.

Sleeplessly God is seeking
Man's soulful love
With His Infinity's Smile
From high above.

30.

O stop not
Playing God-Ecstasy-Game
If you want
Your vital-tiger to tame!

31.

Your faith
Is your heart-explorer.
Your doubt
Is your life-devourer.

32.

God is ready
To give you His All.
Are you ready
To be His Football?

33.

Speed, speed, speed, speed
I need, I need,
My heart to feed,
My body to lead.

34.

If your heart offers God
The lion's share,
Then the mad elephant-world
Your life can dare.

35.

O what is wrong with me?
I make my whole life mad.
What is wrong with the world?
The world is sleeplessly sad.

36.

What does God do?
My gratitude-heart knows.
What does high Heaven do?
In me, for me it glows.

37.

If your future-splendour
Does not ignore your darkness-past,
How can the global faith
In you, O seeker, ever last?

38.

There is no difference
Between his life's story
And his heart's Supreme Lord's
Summit-Fragrance-Glory.

39.

Yesterday you were a misguided mind.
Today you are a misguided life.
But tomorrow you will be a hero-seeker
And conqueror of ignorance-knife.

40.

O my great seeker-friend,
You claim God on what grounds?
Have you chased away
Your life's ignorance-hounds?

41.

How do you expect faith to love you
While you dearly love your doubt-life?
How will your inner world trust you
While you carry your ignorance-knife?

42.

Complete renunciation
Of your expectation-gain
Is the quickest relief
For your heart's inner pain.

43.

My heart was raised
On Grace.
My life, my Lord's
Embrace.

44.

Attachment-cry I never want,
I never want detachment-frown.
My Lord, only one thing I want:
My soul's oneness and fulness-crown.

45.

Your life is a galaxy
Of aspiration-stars.
Therefore, your life has no
Bondage, no prison bars.

46.

A desire-life with no
Frustration-night
Is a completely futile
Illusion-light.

47.

I keep my God-cry-heart
Always on call.
My Lord has made my life
His fondness-doll.

48.

Today I am cheerfully placing you,
O my familiar failure-face,
At the lotus Feet of my Supreme Lord's
Immortal Concern-flooded Grace.

49.

My love of God
Illumines every thought.
In ignorance-clay
I can never be caught.

50.

If you are your own life's
Heart-specialist,
You are undoubtedly God's
Bliss-medallist.

51.

Friend, no soulful prayer
Can ever end in vain.
It is bound to free you
From the world's bondage-chain.

52.

Ignorance-dog
Will definitely bark
If you enjoy
The pleasure-park.

53.

You cannot hide
Your mind's suspicion-gun
For a long time
From your heart's wisdom-sun.

54.

Be not satisfied
With a second-hand spirituality.
It is as useless
As life's colossal futility.

55.

Attachment means
You are your greedy thirst.
Detachment means
God-Light comes always first.

56.

Even the droplets
Of my perfection
Have given my Lord
High satisfaction.

57.

If you desire
To be God's flying kite,
Then, O seeker,
Ignore death's appetite.

58.

What is my heart?
A fleeting hope.
What is my mind?
A strangling rope.

59.

Challenge suffering
With cheerfulness-light.
God will grant you
His Fulness-Delight.

60.

God will open
His Heart's Grace-Door
If He finds you
At your surrender-shore.

61.

If you accuse Heaven
Of callousness,
Heaven will accuse you
Of soullessness.

62.

God will not and cannot
Grant you any reception,
If you are not willing
To prevent self-deception.

63.

You tell the world that you are
Exceptionally brave.
Do you not see that you are
Your mind's perfection-slave?

64.

With Heaven your good
Friendship ended
The day doubt-mind
You befriended.

65.

O if you are divinely wise,
Then every single day
The dust of your despair-vital
You must sweep away.

66.

If you forget to take
Your meditation-medication,
How will you be invited
By Infinity's illumination?

67.

I know, I know, I know
My earth-freed liberation
Has but one destination:
God's Satisfaction-Station.

68.

Now that you have declared war
On your ignorance-adversary,
Every year God will celebrate
Your victory-anniversary.

69.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"Body, no indolence."

70.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"Vital, no arrogance."

71.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"O mind, no indifference."

72.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"O heart, no preference."

73.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"My soul, all redolence."

74.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"My Lord, all importance."

75.

My silence speaks, my silence:
"My life, all ascendance."

76.

A life of desire-cry
Is a vital urge.
A life of self-giving
Is a soulful surge.

77.

If you allow your ego-life
To grow taller,
O then your earthly human life
Will be smaller.

78.

Unveil your mind's
Unflinching determination,
If you want bliss
In your life's deep aspiration.

79.

Because you are
Your unconquerable optimism-light,
You have become
God's most lovable satisfaction-delight.

80.

O give to God
What you have cheerfully.
God will give you
What He is speedily.

81.

Your heart's surrender-speed
Is tremendous.
Therefore, in God's Heart-Garden,
You are precious.

82.

If your mind is empty of
Lofty resolve,
How can your human life
Ever evolve?

83.

Because your earthly body
Has passed through death,
Your life is shaking hands
With your soul's breath.

84.

As God does not ration
His Compassion-Delight,
Even so, I ration not
My aspiration-light.

85.

Because of God's
Infinite Affection,
My life cleaves to
The hope of perfection.

86.

Since you are enjoying vacation
From your determination,
Yours will be the unmistakable
Heart-shattering frustration.

87.

O you have come to God
Because your mind is restless night.
And God has come to you
Because His Heart is selfless Light.

88.

You always love
The chains of attachment,
Yet you expect
Your life's enlightenment.

89.

You can increase your mind's
Fantasy-flame.
But never blame others,
No, never blame!

90.

Enlightenment you need,
My friend, enlightenment.
Then no doubt-interference
In your mind-firmament.

91.

Your purity-heart
Of constant kindness
Will grow into
Your God's God-Oneness.

92.

My Lord's Compassion-Eye
One step ahead of my life.
Therefore, my eyes nowhere
See the destruction-knife.

93.

Alas, what can
My Beloved Supreme say
If I stop not
Playing in ego-clay?

94.

My stupid mind,
Surrender not to poison-doubt.
My stupid heart,
Surrender not to blindness-shout.

95.

Your heart has freed your mind
From doubt-captivity.
Your soul has given your heart
Delight's Infinity.

96.

How can your inner life
Ever thrive
If your heart does not keep
Its God-love alive?

97.

Because his inner life
Is a faith-mountain,
His outer life sees not
Bondage-night-chain.

98.

O God-seeker, become and remain
God's faithful dog.
You will not be threatened by the
Mind's confusion-fog.

99.

What you have is a loveless
And useless lethargy-life.
What you are is a dangerous
And peace-destructive knife.

100.

Every day he takes
Inventory of his imperfections.
Every time he sees
Nothing but godless, stark illusions.

101.

Success
Depends on my own ambition.
Progress
Depends on my Lord's Compassion.

102.

In God's Illumination-Club
Before you can claim membership,
You have to perfectly build
With God a special friendship.

103.

Who asks you to be
An undernourished faith-heart?
Can you not see
All-where your perdition-dart?

104.

Today, definitely today,
I shall catch up on my God-correspondence
And thus silence my long-standing,
Heart-breaking and God-saddening despondence.

105.

Just keep in touch
With your Beloved Supreme.
No dream of yours
Shall live unfed, no dream.

106.

One boon, my Lord Supreme,
Only one mountain-boon
My heart desires to have
From You soon, very soon.

107.

Oneness-delight enclosed.
Open with care.
For you, O seeker, for you
This gift so rare.

108.

Today my heart
Is a vastness-oneness-sky.
Today my Lord
Is His supreme Reply.

109.

Wear your soul's smile,
O God-seeker, today.
For you no more
Your life-bound bondage-clay.

110.

Never take a God-oneness-break,
O seeker, never take.
Sleeplessly swim and smile
In His Ecstasy-Lake.

111.

O brave
Ignorance-cave!
No grave
For you, no grave.

112.

God knows
How to admire.
Show Him
Your inner fire.

113.

O what has God's Grace done
For my poor heart, God's Grace?
It has made my heart-cry
Win the Heavenward race.

114.

You are your heart's aspiration,
You are your life's dedication.
Therefore, you can easily resist
The strong buffets of frustration.

115.

At the final end
Of the human quest,
God will come to you
As your Supreme Guest.

116.

My mind, I hope
You have received the great message:
God's Concern-Heart
Shall soon shatter your bondage-cage.

117.

Do you love God?
His Cosmic Dance?
Then, seeker, disdain
Ever death-glance.

118.

I do the opposite,
Whatever my heart says.
Therefore, my Lord Supreme
With my heartbeat never plays.

119.

God-manifestation is
My purity's unhorizoned length.
God-satisfaction is
My divinity's unparalleled strength.

120.

My Lord Supreme,
Do make me brave,
To love and treasure
Your Compassion-Wave.

121.

My aspiration-heart
Is bursting with joy
Because my unwilling mind
Is now God's willing toy.

122.

I feed my heart's
Faith-hunger, feed.
I love my life's
Ascending speed.

123.

God's Compassion-Smile
Caught me powerfully.
Alas, my clever mind
Helped me escape easily.

124.

An aspiration-heart
Needs no rest.
A realisation-soul
Needs no test.

125.

When the Supreme reigns in you,
When the Beloved Supreme,
Yours will be the perfection-life
Of God's God-blossoming Dream.

126.

More thought-lovers
Than God-lovers I know.
Therefore, this world
A life of frustration-flow.

127.

Exit, my eyeless mind.
You are not kind.
Enter, my compassion-soul.
Bind me, O bind!

128.

My ancient longing
Is fulfilled at last:
Ignorance-bondage-chain
My God-life shall outlast.

129.

God's stupendous Magic:
A new mind shall appear
To make me always feel
God is so near, so dear.

130.

Your realisation can never be
In critical condition,
For realisation means Eternity's
Delight-celebration.

131.

Help me, my Lord; I need Your Hand.
Save me, my Lord; I need Your Eye.
Love me, my Lord; I need Your Heart.
Keep me, my Lord, in Your Oneness-Sky.

132.

Permit not thoughts
To come from near and far.
Let your mind remain
Tranquillity's blue star.

133.

My Lord, do give my heart
A little extra time
To write a soulful poem
With a perfect rhyme.

134.

You have invoked God,
The Compassion-Power.
The Lord has cancelled
His Justice-Light-Hour.

135.

If you are a God-lover
By profession,
How can you have insecurity
In profusion?

136.

God's Love created the perfect man.
Man's vital created imperfection.
God's Heart created illumination.
Man's mind created hallucination.

137.

To stand
On the winner's stand,
Become
A God-serving hand.

138.

Your turn will also come;
Just wait and see.
You will be invited to swim
In God's Love-Sea.

139.

Is your surrender
Unconditional?
Then you are God's
Love-Joy eternal.

140.

Your purity-heart needs a home
In every heart.
Your divinity-soul feeds God
In every mart.

141.

He does not practice,
Yet he always succeeds.
But how? Because him
God's Compassion feeds.

142.

Since you are a God-lover
By profession,
Then your heart's sacred name
His Compassion.

143.

Impurity-passengers
Are always dangerous.
Never do they value
God's Compassion precious.

144.

If you listen
To your Lord's Behest,
He will grant you
His own Heart-Nest.

145.

Fine your vital,
Every day fine!
Through you God's Joy
Wants to shine.

146.

No difference between
My dream and my Supreme.
No difference between
My reality and His Dream.

147.

Let every thought of yours
Be God-invocation.
Let every choice of yours
Be God-manifestation.

148.

To love God is to end
Your self-styled, pompous responsibility
And grow into the Smile
Of God's self-transcending Infinity.

149.

The sacred joy
Of inner poise
Comes from obeying
The higher voice.

150.

Without God
Life is a temptation-sigh.
With God
Life is heart's expansion-sky.

151.

Do you want your entire
Being to thrive?
O then try every day
A progress-dive.

152.

O God-seeker,
You want to be nameless.
Therefore, in you
God-Victory is deathless.

153.

Since God's Compassion-Heart
Is still considering your case,
Since God is still hopeful,
Chase ignorance-tiger, chase.

154.

A desire-life
Instigates our descent.
A prayer-heart
Inspires our ascent.

155.

Alas, my mind
Was born with stupidity.
Alas, my life
Was born with futility.

156.

Aspiration
Brightens the road.
Realisation
Removes the load.

157.

Perfection, perfection,
O my perfection,
You are my sweetness-joy
Of heart-satisfaction.

158.

Now that you have
Kindled your inner flame,
You are ready
To play God's Cosmic Game.

159.

The beautiful soul-bird
Flies.
The slothful body-elephant
Dies.

160.

God's Footsteps
Are for us to follow,
And not for us
To greedily swallow.

161.

Now that the Lord
Has totally vanished,
Even your own doubting mind
Is simply astonished.

162.

You belong to God's
Royal Family.
Remember this ever,
Seeker, cheerfully.

163.

Declare your dependence
On God's Compassion.
You will be led
By God-Satisfaction.

164.

God is His own
Compassion-Hand.
Therefore, you are
In progress-land.

165.

For satisfaction-joy
How can you hope?
You have tangled your mind
In frustration-rope.

166.

Where is the shrine
Of fulfilment?
Inside the temple
Of self-effacement.

167.

If you desire to see
God's Satisfaction-Face,
Run not your mind's
Aimless and useless race.

168.

O world,
Do tell me the stories
That deal
With only God's Glories.

169.

The mind lives
With a logic-snake.
The heart lives
In its fondness-lake.

170.

No more
Exuberance-night.
Evermore
Effulgence-light.

171.

Darkness meets light
To fight and fight.
Light meets darkness
To share delight.

172.

Give up, give up
All hesitation,
If you need only
God-Satisfaction.

173.

He who does not obey
Has and is a mind of clay.

174.

To sow within
The perfection-seed,
A purity-life
I sleeplessly need.

175.

An outer life of prosperity
Is no match for inner divinity.

176.

Dark bondage-thoughts
I sleeplessly thought.
Therefore, I am
Now hopelessly caught.

177.

Simplicity,
My life's simplicity,
You are my Lord's
Blossoming Divinity.

178.

Jealousy has completely
Clouded your mind.
Therefore, within, without
You are now blind.

179.

O make yourself
Divinely faithful.
God will make you
Supremely useful.

180.

Ignorance is something
We can slay,
If with God we truly
Love to play.

181.

Be mindful of
Today's delight.
Be forgetful of
Yesterday's night.

182.

His bondage-life
Thinks liberation
Is his mind-invented
Hallucination.

183.

O heart, where am I going to rest?
Where is my silence-feeding nest?

184.

Be a heart pure,
Be a mind serious.
Yours will be a life
Divinely glorious.
