My perfection-promise to God

1.

My prayer
Is my perfection-promise
To God.
My meditation
Is my God-satisfaction
In God's own Way.

2.

The stupidity-expert
Will eventually be exposed.
The wisdom-expert
Will eternally be adored.

3.

My mind does not want
To remember
God's powerful Eye.
My heart tries
To remember
God's blissful Heart.

4.

My desire-tour-cancellation
Has made God
Immensely happy.
My aspiration-journey-inception
Has made God
Universally happy.

5.

God has revoked
My desire-car-license.
God has given me
A free aspiration-plane-ticket
To fly all over the world.

6.

My mind pointedly reminds me
Of all the things
That God has not done for me.
My heart lovingly reminds me
Of all the things
That God has unconditionally
Done for me.

7.

I see a new world
Of peace and bliss
Emerging from my age-old
Mind-hallucinations.
This is what
My compassion-heart
Has done for me.

8.

Put your aspiring heart
Inside your boasting mouth.
Lo, you are on your way
To arriving at
Your God-Destination.

9.

When I soulfully cry,
I see my Lord's
Smiling Eyes.
When I powerfully smile,
I see my Lord's
Fulfilled Dreams.

10.

When I live inside
My Lord's Heart-Garden,
I feel that each time
I breathe in and breathe out
A new
God-realisation-hope
And a new
God-manifestation-promise
Have become
My two real friends.

11.

My old friend
Was a thought-life.
My new friend
Is a will-fulfilled breath.

12.

My Lord Supreme shows me
His Compassion-Power
To make me happy.
My Lord Supreme gives me
His Hope-Power
To make me perfect.

13.

I see today
My self-giving gratitude-heart
Standing at the top of God's
Compassion-Distribution-List.

14.

I need only one friend,
And my Lord Supreme
Has already given me
That particular friend:
His Compassion-Eye.

15.

Alas,
Why do I not cheerfully,
Gratefully and sleeplessly
Allow God's Compassion-Light
To enter into my heart-room
Faster than the fastest
To turn me into
His peace-blossoming tree?

16.

When I sleeplessly
Offer myself to God,
He tells me
I have now become
A true member of
His intimate and inner Circle.

17.

Mine is the sound-life
That God uses to produce
His Victory here on earth.
Mine is the silence-heart
That God uses to transcend
His own Infinity's
Self-Transcendence-Dreams.

18.

My searching mind
Is sincerely looking
For the heart-garden
Of the God-seekers.
My aspiring heart
Is selflessly looking
For the full manifestation
Of the sleepless God-dreamers.

19.

My earth-responsibilities
Are my Heaven-sent
Opportunities
To bring to the fore
My divinity's prosperity
And offer it
To the heart of humanity
For the manifestation
Of God's Peace,
God's Bliss
And God's Satisfaction
On earth.

20.

Not easy to find,
A purity-heart-temple.
But impurity-mind-debris
Is easily everywhere found.

21.

God asks my clever mind
To shut up immediately.
God asks my torpor-heart
To wake up smilingly.

22.

God and I every day
Play various games.
I play to win.
I play to prove
That I am a better player.
God plays to improve
His Game.
God plays to transcend
His Capacities.

23.

Of all the Limbs of God,
I choose
God's Protection-Feet.

24.

For him, either to love
The farthest soul
Or to love
The nearest man
Is an extremely difficult task.

25.

From now on
I shall discount the things
That my soul does not need.
I want to make my soul happy
In my soul's way.

26.

I came into the world
To enjoy the infinite Love
Of my Lord Supreme
And not to be employed
By the pleasures
Of ignorance-night.

27.

Alas,
The narrowness of the mind,
The loneliness of the vital
And the idleness of the body
Have made me what I am now.

28.

My heart's actions
And not my life's positions
Can and do please
My Lord Supreme.

29.

My seeker-friend,
You can count
How many times
You have fallen.
I shall count only
How many times
You have bravely
And cheerfully arisen.

30.

My seeker friend, I love you,
Not because
You think well of me,
Not because
You always do good things,
But because
You are pleasing
Our Lord Supreme
In His own Way.

31.

Most convincing,
Most satisfactory progress
We make in the spiritual life
Only after we have stopped
The mind's
Whirlwind-thought-speed.

32.

The heart's faith
Chases the mind-car
And also silences
The mind's doubt-storms.

33.

How can God
Have any confidence
In your spiritual life
If you do not want
To come out of
Your mind's desire-forest?

34.

There cannot be a single mind
That has not suffered from
Ignorance-hound thoughts.

35.

The mind loves
To stay indefinitely
In the ignorance-ego-hotel.

36.

After a long time,
Today I am so happy
To watch inspiration-flames
Lighting my mind.

37.

Every morning
I am awakened by my Lord's
Delight-Compassion-Whisper.

38.

My soul has already told
My aspiration-heart
That there is no U-turn
On its realisation-road.

39.

God loves me,
God loves my crying heart,
God loves my smiling soul.

40.

A life of surrender
Strikingly lengthens
The heart's aspiration-strides.

41.

My devotion
Purifies my heart.
My surrender
Satisfies my Lord.

42.

My heart's sincerity-flames
God transforms
Into His Divinity-Sun.

43.

A mind of peace
Expands and expands
And becomes a citizen
Of oneness-aspiration-land.

44.

Show, show
Your surrender-life.
God will stop
Your desire-train.

45.

An impurity-mind
Is a heart-sinking
Experience.
