21.

Only when I am in
A very high consciousness,
I come to learn why
My Lord Supreme does not listen
To my mind-demand-prayers
And why He treasures
My heart-surrender-meditations.

22.

Alas, will there be a time
When my Supreme Lord
Will find my mind-line free
So that He can compassionately
And affectionately
Instruct my mind
About soulful aspiration
And fruitful dedication?

23.

My dear Supreme,
My sweet Supreme,
My Lord Supreme,
My Beloved Supreme and I
Are most eagerly looking for
The return
Of my long-lost aspiration.

24.

This morning my sweet Supreme
Not only blessed me
With His Heart-Clock
But also struck powerfully
My heart's aspiration-hour.

25.

O my disobedience-mind,
Be careful!
I am telling you once and for all
That soon you will have to stand
Before God's Absolute
Justice-Light.

26.

My Lord's
Oneness-Heart-Smile
And my heart's
Insecurity-blindness
Can never establish
Even a fleeting friendship.

27.

My Lord of Compassion infinite,
Please grant me the capacity
To take every morning
The gratitude-short-cut
To Your Satisfaction-Highway.

28.

Every morning
There is a serious battle
Between my heart's eagerness
And my mind's unwillingness.
To my extreme joy,
Every single day
My heart's eagerness wins.

29.

God does not ask us
To do many things for Him.
He asks us to do only one thing:
To demolish completely
Our mind-made ignorance-fort.

30.

My Lord asks me not to be afraid
Of my desire-nights.
He asks me only to increase
My heart's burning
Aspiration-flames.
He tells me that
My heart's burning
Aspiration-flames
Will soon be able to devour
All my desire-nights.

31.

I am so happy
That even my doubting mind
Is struggling hard to reach
My heart's faith-oasis.

32.

Every day I need
A new wave of enthusiasm-light
To speed up my purity-heart's
Heavenward aspiration-journey.

33.

Every day I must strengthen
My aspiration-heart
With a new supply
Of confidence-delight
So that my heart does not suffer
From security-shortage.

34.

This morning
My heart's aspiration-boxer
Has knocked out
Easily and permanently
My confusion-mind.

35.

Not from any human being
But from God Himself
I have learned how to throw
My mind's unwillingness-insects
Into my heart's eagerness-fire.

36.

My Lord tells me
That it is only
My complete satisfaction-heart
That has the divine right
To kindle my life's
Self-transcendence-flames.

37.

Alas, why am I so helpless
That I am compelled to hear
My mind's nothingness-story
Every day?

38.

Slowly, steadily
But unmistakably
I have unloaded
My mind's doubt-excess.

39.

Just yesterday I gave away
All my old ignorance-toys.
Today my Lord Supreme
Has given me His own
Ever-new and ever-beautiful
Love, Joy and Peace-Toys.

40.

Alas, there are so many
Burning hope-heart-countries
In this world,
But where
Is the peace-ambassador,
Where?

41.

My God-fulfilment-
Confidence-promise-heart
Is from my sleeplessly
Faith-trained hero-life.

42.

Only my soul's promise-eye
Has the God-commissioned right
To light
My God-manifestation-torch.

43.

Beautiful, supremely beautiful,
Was my aspiration-journey's start.
Powerful, unimaginably powerful,
Was my Supreme Lord's Compassion-Blessing-Rain.

44.

Every morning without fail
My Beloved Supreme asks
My gratitude-heart
To read out His own
Transcendental Victory-Speech.

45.

I simply do not know
And certainly do not want to know
When and how
I cut off completely
All my uncomely and powerful Bondage-thought-chains.

46.

Mine is the life
That will never surrender
To ignorance-tyranny.
Mine is the mind
That will never surrender
To agitation-turmoil.

47.

Each purity-thought of mine
Is a silver-moon-beauty
Of my Lord's Heart.

48.

My outer life succeeds
And my inner life proceeds
Precisely because
My Beloved Supreme
Has kept my aspiration-heart
In between
His own Compassion-Heart
And His own Encouragement-Eye.

49.

Because He enjoys
His own Silence-Delight,
My Lord Supreme
Gets tremendous satisfaction
When my body, vital, mind
And heart
Monopolise their conversation
With Him.

50.

Divinity's transcendental peak
You are bound to ascend
If you have become a sleepless
Existence-Consciousness-
Bliss-climber.

51.

When I live in the very depths
Of my Lord's Compassion-Eye,
My life's success-speed
And my heart's progress-speed
Are so fast
That not even the cosmic gods
Can adequately time them.

52.

My concentration-warrior-eye
Is sleeplessly and breathlessly
Determined to dethrone
My confusion-mind-king.

53.

O my seeker-heart,
Sincerity-flames are calling you.
Arise, awake!

54.

This morning,
With each soulful breath,
My aspiration-heart accepted
My Lord's blessingful Invitation.

55.

Peace-fulfilment-songs
Are sung only
By the God-singing souls.

56.

Every morning I make a solemn promise
That I shall not answer
My mind-desire-phone.
Alas,
Every day I badly fail.

57.

Be not afraid
Of your desire-nightmares.
Your heart's aspiration-fire
Can and shall devour them
At God's choice Hour.

58.

Each aspiration-heart
Is bound to live
In a progress-paradise.

59.

The temptation-disaster
May challenge
The meditation-protector,
But it will always lose.

60.

My heart's aspiration-morning
Never sees
A hesitation-day.

61.

My God-meditation-captain
Puts my soul, my heart, my mind,
My vital and my body
Every day in line
Before they receive
Transcendental Blessings
From my Beloved Supreme.

62.

"My child, my child,
Do not be afraid of your mind's
Volcano-confusion.
My Compassion-Eye
At My choice Hour will devour
Your mind's volcano-confusion."

63.

"My child, my child,
Every morning you must wake up
When I ring My Heart's
Universal Oneness-Bell."
