Peace-Blossom-Fragrance, part 5

401.

Each time I have a deep meditation,
I clearly see
That God's golden Peace-Horizon
Is coming closer to me.

402.

My soul's peace flies
On my heart's silence-wings.

403.

My soul's peace
And my Lord's Satisfaction
Are Eternity's companions.

404.

Peace
Is the sacred smile
That adorns the secret chamber
Of my soul.

405.

At the Lotus-Feet
Of my Lord Supreme
I prayerfully sit,
Not to be His power-lion
But to be His peace-lamb.

406.

My heart's peace-fount
Is God's Feet.
God's Forgiveness-Fount
Is my peace.

407.

My heart's silence-buds
Give me Infinity's joy.
My soul's peace-blossoms
Give me Immortality's fulfilment.

408.

God is my life's golden mirror.
I realise this only when
My heart is all peace.

409.

The peace-summit-height
Comes down to me
Only when I submit
My life's puny ego-I.

410.

When I become a true lover
Of both God's littleness and bigness,
God blesses me with
His Fulness-Peace.

411.

Peace
Is my heart's
Sweet love-melody
To link me with
The Smile of God's Heart.

412.

When my peace-heart sings
God's Pride-Heart listens.

413.

The compassion of Mother-Earth
Teaches me how
To pray for peace.

414.

The illumination of Father-Heaven
Teaches me how
To embody peace.

415.

Peace
Is my heart's
God-Power within.
Peace
Is my life's
God-Beauty without.

416.

Man is man's search
For God's Peace.
God is God's Search
For man's satisfaction.

417.

From time immemorial
Countless saints have been killed
By this ignorance-world.
But their message of peace
Will remain immortal
Throughout the length and breadth
Of the world.

418.

God conceals from me
His sacred Sorrows
If I do not pray to Him
Every morning for peace.

419.

Peace
Becomes my inseparable friend
When I feel that I love God only.

420.

Goodness is born of
Wisdom-light.
Wisdom-light is born of
Peace-delight.

421.

I become the possessor
Of boundless peace
Only when God's Justice-Eye-Court
Declares that I am innocent.

422.

The moment my mind's goodness
Reaches my heart's temple door,
Peace-Goddess comes to the door
And blesses it.

423.

God tells me that
I must give Him both hands —
Not one hand to Him,
One hand to ignorance —
If I really need peace from Him.

424.

If we just carefully
Think of God,
Then God's Peace will not allow
Our world to be torn
Into anxiety-worry-pieces.

425.

God gives us peace,
Not after hearing everything
That we have to say,
But after receiving everything
That we have to give.

426.

May peace be the mother
Of my aspiration-heart-beauty.

427.

May peace be the father
Of my dedication-life-duty.

428.

Peace
You will get
If you can keep your mind
Away from your yesterday's
Failure-realities.

429.

Peace
You will get
If you can keep your mind
Away from your tomorrow's
Failure-imaginations.

430.

You cannot have a peace-future
If you are afraid of loving
Your present life
The way God Himself loves you.

431.

My mind's longest earth-journey
Has no peace.

432.

My heart's shortest Heaven-journey
Is all peace,
From the very beginning
To the very end.

433.

My heart was not born
For world-appreciation.
My heart was born
For God's peace-preparation
On earth.

434.

Of all approaches,
Our surrender-approach
To God's Will
Brings down God the Peace
Directly and quickly.

435.

When we go to God
Without the tears of our heart,
God finds it extremely difficult
To give us a peace-meal.

436.

My heart's peace
Invents
Heaven-fulness in earth-newness.
My mind's silence
Discovers
The Infinite in the finite.

437.

Not by hoarding
But by distributing
God's Love,
A God-lover swims
In peace-sea.

438.

God finds peace
When He walks along
My mind's frankness-road.

439.

I find peace
When I walk along
God's Forgiveness-Road.

440.

An emptiness-mind
And a soulfulness-heart
Are co-sharers of God's Peace.

441.

The guests
Of my sound-mind-host
Are anxiety-broods.
The guests
Of my silence-heart-host
Are peace-blossoms.

442.

God's Peace
Is eagerly awaiting
The perfect renewal
Of my faith-heart-life.

443.

When I tell God
That He is my only Friend,
Happily and proudly He tells me
That I am His true Peace,
True Perfection and
True Satisfaction.

444.

When I give God
A portion of myself,
He gives me
The whole of Himself:
Satisfaction-Peace.

445.

O God-seeker,
Stop not praying,
Stop not meditating!
The day shall dawn
When your heart's love
Will grow into
God's Satisfaction-Peace-Tower.

446.

Dive deep within
Sleeplessly and breathlessly.
Your age-old longing for peace
Will be fulfilled
Infinitely beyond your expectations.

447.

Out of His infinite Bounty,
God tells me
That He has not given me peace,
Not because He is displeased with me
But because His choice Hour
Has not arrived.

448.

Alas,
How do I expect to have
Even a peace-beauty-bud,
When I do not obey
My soul's whispers
From deep within?

449.

Peace
Is the perfect multiplication
Of my inner life's
Goodness-cries.

450.

Peace
Is the perfect multiplication
Of my outer life's
Greatness-smiles.

451.

Peace
Is never without its companion:
Satisfaction.

452.

In the inner world
When I lose peace,
I deepen God's Sighs.

453.

In the outer world
When I lose peace,
I double my tears.

454.

Peace
Is not only
My present friend
But also my Eternity's
Unfailing friend.

455.

Your task is not
To foresee;
Your task is to see within
And discover
Your life-journey's goal:
The attainment of infinite peace.

456.

In vain
My doubting mind
Again and again tries
To betray and ignore
My heart of peace.

457.

If your heart is wanting in peace,
Then you have no claim
To either Heaven-illumination
Or earth-compassion.

458.

The magnanimity of the mind
Is a significant achievement,
But the peace of the heart
Is infinitely more important.

459.

God's Peace freely works
In and through us
When our life becomes
Purity's shrine.

460.

He who sincerely desires
To see others happy
Is indeed
A man of peace.

461.

Because of the absence
Of peace,
Our world has become a storehouse
Of miseries and treacheries.

462.

The free advice
Of my inner peace
To my outer mind
Is beyond all price.

463.

Alas, how can we have peace
When we are looking for
The amusement-park
And not for
The enlightenment-garden?

464.

From judging
What is right and what is wrong
In others' lives
And in our own lives as well,
We are banishing
Even the little peace
That we have at our disposal.

465.

When my real peace smiles,
It smiles through my heart's
Aspiration-eyes
And not through my mind's
Desire-eyes.

466.

If goodness is not always
His supreme necessity on earth,
Then how can any human being
Have peace?

467.

I do not need the peace
Of the stars and planets
Of the ages.
I need the peace
Of the flowing and glowing
Here and now.

468.

God gets a headache
When I do not give Him
What He needs from me:
Satisfaction.
I get a headache
When God does not give me
What I desperately need from Him:
Peace.

469.

My Lord, will You not give me,
Even for one single day,
What I so desperately need from You:
Peace?

"My child, will you not give Me,
Even for a fleeting second,
What I immediately need from you:
Love?"

470.

O seeker,
Beg the right person
For the right thing.
If you need power,
Beg God the Father-Heaven.
If you need peace,
Then beg God the Mother-Earth.

471.

My jealousy,
Are you not ashamed
Of cutting off so often
My peace-connection-bliss
With the rest of the world?

472.

I am sure
There shall come a time
When the peace-lovers
Will be able to bring peace
Into the complex and
Contradiction-ridden world.

473.

Peace
Does not want independence
But interdependence-reality
On earth.

474.

A whirlwind of misunderstandings
At every moment
Is preventing the world-mind
From enjoying the beauty,
Purity and divinity
Of peace.

475.

Even to think of
Permanent world-peace,
We need bulwark-faith
In ourselves.

476.

A God-surrender-endowed heart
Lives in God's infinite Peace
For His immortal Joy.

477.

The mind-preacher
Always remains a stranger
To peace.

478.

The heart-giver
Is a real grower
Of peace.

479.

The world-server
Is an immediate neighbour
Of peace.

480.

My soul's peace
Sends aspiration-messages
To my heart.

481.

My heart's peace
Sends inspiration-messages
To my mind.

482.

My mind's peace
Sends dynamism-messages
To my vital.

483.

My vital's peace
Sends willingness-messages
To my body.

484.

Every day my heart
Most faithfully memorises
The peace-messages
That it receives from God
Via my soul.

485.

The mind-computer is so cruel!
It shuts out all the peace-messages
Of the heart.

486.

The moment peace descends
From Above,
A hopeless and helpless seeker
Becomes an illumining and fulfilling
World-citizen.

487.

I am sure I will have peace
Only after the death
Of my mind's God-disobedience.

488.

Alas, how can I have peace
When every day
My mind drives me
Along a God-displeasing road?

489.

When I allow pride,
Anger, jealousy and insecurity
To play inside me,
I clearly see the Goddess of Peace
Heaving a heavy sigh.

490.

Compromise-cleverness
Cannot feel the heart of peace.
Compromise-cleverness
Cannot even see the face of peace.

491.

Every morning
I pray most fervently
For peace.
If I do not do that,
My mind gets cornered
On all sides
By serious problems.

492.

My heart of total
God-surrender
And my soul of fruitful
Peace-abundance
Can silence my mind's
Ruthless and shameless
Turbulence.

493.

A typical day on earth
Begins not with the hope
Of world-peace
But with the fear
Of world-war.

494.

My Lord Supreme
Is so kind to me.
He tells me that
All my peace-questions
Deserve special attention
And special answers from Him.

495.

My heart breaks into pieces
When I see peace
Flying away from my mind
Faster than the flight of seconds.

496.

My day is completely lost
If peace and I
Do not greet each other
When day first dawns.

497.

My heart's peace-bird
Every day is fed
By my Lord's Compassion-Eye,
Protection-Feet
And Satisfaction-Heart.

498.

Peace is superior
To earthly greatness.
Peace is equal
To Heavenly goodness.

499.

A man of peace
Has the strength of
A lion's heart
And the beauty of
A child's face.

500.

A man of unconditional
God-surrender
Is a native of the soil
Where God's infinite Peace
Grows.
