Peace-Blossom-Fragrance, part 4

301.

Peace
Blossoms fast,
Very fast,
From my heart's
Cheerful God-willingness.

302.

The doubt of the mind
And the suspicion of the mind
Together strangle
The peace of the mind.

303.

To have a peace-sea-heart
Is to have
God's immediate Smile
And His complete Satisfaction.

304.

The goal of my peace
Is infinitely higher
Than my mind's greatness.

305.

The goal of my peace
Is infinitely deeper
Than my heart's goodness.

306.

The goal of my peace
Is my sleepless and breathless
God-oneness.

307.

Every morning God visits
My heart-garden
To blessingfully take care of
My peace-plants.

308.

O my mind, be careful!
If you do not care for peace,
And if you ignore peace
All the time,
Who knows, one day
You may act like a beast.

309.

God is extremely unhappy to learn
That I have stopped studying
In my heart's God-fulfilling
Peace-school.

310.

God is commanding me
Once more to go back
To my heart's peace-school.

311.

Yesterday my heart and I
Visited our soul.
Our soul's peace-infinity fed us
And fulfilled us
Far beyond our imagination-flight.

312.

There is no dying hope;
There is only fulfilling promise
Inside my peace-flooded heart.

313.

There is no peace
Inside my mind's
Disobedience-volcano.

314.

There is only
Fast-blossoming peace
Inside
My aspiration-heart-garden.

315.

As soon as we are born,
Father-Heaven blesses us
With His Peace-Whispers,
And Mother-Earth blesses us
With Her Compassion-Tears.

316.

I live in two places:
Inside
My hope-joy-mind
And inside
My peace-dream-heart.

317.

A heart of peace is expert
At loving God
Unreservedly and unconditionally
At first sight.

318.

Whenever
The Heaven above me sees me,
It blesses me
With its Infinity's peace-smile.

319.

My sweet Lord,
I pray to You,
Do not allow my heart to die
With its completely shattered
Peace-dreams.

320.

God does not want me
To remain a stark fool.
Therefore
He has told me
That no true and abiding peace
Can ever be founded
Upon compromise-opportunities.

321.

My mind's fear, doubt,
Jealousy and insecurity
Helplessly bow their heads
To my heart's God-Peace-certainty.

322.

Where heart's peace is,
Life's insufficiency is not.

323.

Alas, from time immemorial,
The absence of peace
Has ruthlessly afflicted
The human race.

324.

The heart of peace
Speedily runs away
From the impurity-mind's
Ugly presence.

325.

My soul devotedly
Followed God's Peace-Heart
While entering into
The earth-arena.

326.

Alas, I do not know
How I can have peace
If I do not dare
To expunge ruthlessly
My mind's ego-absurdities.

327.

My friend,
You want to know
Why I have so much peace.
I have peace in abundance
Because my heart's streaming tears
And my Lord's beaming Smiles
Are immediate neighbours.

328.

The anxiety-arrows may,
At times,
Succeed in piercing
The poise of my mind,
But never
The peace of my heart.

329.

I am more deplorable
Than a street-beggar
When I do not have peace
At every single moment
Of my life.

330.

Earth-enjoyment
Is not peace.
Peace-enjoyment
Is earth-transcendence.

331.

Peace lives in me
Because
My life-breath lives
Only in God.

332.

Peace lives
In a God-realised soul
Because all the spiritual Masters
Breathe their breath in him.

333.

Peace
Is not and cannot be
In my mind's rejection.

334.

Peace
Is only in the smile
Of my mind-illumination.

335.

My heart's peace
Is so beautiful and powerful
When I look at my heart's peace
With the eye of my soul.

336.

My doubt-mind is dying disappointed,
But my peace-heart is appointed
By God Himself
For His permanent service.

337.

Peace
Is not in the thirst
To know.

338.

Peace
Is not in the hunger
To understand.

339.

Peace is
In the God-manifestation-meal.

340.

Peace-game we play
When I weep and God laughs,
And when I laugh and God weeps.

341.

The flower of the life-tree
Is wisdom.
The fruit of the life-tree
Is peace.

342.

To have a heart of peace
Is to enjoy the art
Of being Heaven-natural
And not earth-unique.

343.

God comes to my heart
With peace
Only after my heart has done
Its God-manifestation-homework.

344.

Alas, helpless are
The peace-dreamers.
Equally, useless are
The ignorance-lovers.

345.

Do you know how I have
Peace of mind every day?
I have peace of mind
Because I walk every day
Along my heart's God-surrender-road.

346.

Peace
I never had
From my world-criticism.

347.

Peace
I now have
From my world-encouragement.

348.

Absurdity reaches its zenith
When war-mongers
In the inner world
Become peace-inspirers
In the outer world.

349.

My God-obedience-peace-mind
Has finally flung off
All its cherished
World-possession-fetters.

350.

Only my folded, prayerful hands
And my unfolded, cheerful heart
Have the capacity to enjoy climbing
God's universal and transcendental
Peace-Tree.

351.

When my mind is bent upon
Outdoing others,
I become the desert-dryness-Sahara.
When my heart is bent upon
Loving others
And standing side by side
With others,
I become the peace-fulness-Pacific.

352.

My mind comforts itself
By broadcasting
Peace-philosophy.

353.

My heart comforts itself
By playing
Peace-flute-melodies.

354.

My soul comforts itself
By whispering peace
Into my all-eagerness-ears.

355.

My wall-builder-mind
Will never have
An atom of peace.

356.

My well-digger-heart
Will without fail discover
Peace in abundance.

357.

May my mind
Be as happy as hope.
May my heart
Be as fulfilled as peace.

358.

I am my mind's teacher.
I teach my mind
That without peace
Everything suffers.

359.

I am my heart's student.
My heart teaches me
That in peace
Everything prospers.

360.

When God gives
His Peace-Lecture,
He signals my heart
To occupy the gratitude-seat.

361.

Beautiful
Is the silence-sky
Of my mind.
Fruitful
Is the peace-sun
Of my heart.

362.

Man's eternal question
To God:
"Where is peace?"

363.

God's eternal question
To man:
"My child, where is
Your peace-necessity?"

364.

O my stupid mind,
Do you think you will be able
To prove to the world
That you are so brave and wise
That you can pass your days and nights
Without peace?

365.

O my suspicion-mind,
No matter how wide
You open your mouth,
You will not be able to devour
My heart's peace-blossoms.

366.

Our world certainly needs
Spiritual maturity
Before it is blessed by God
With peace infinite.

367.

Not from the outer world history,
But from inner God-discovery only
Can we have peace.

368.

The outer battlefield-hero
Is the atom bomb.
The inner battlefield-hero supreme
Is peace.

369.

Anxiety cannot purchase peace,
But peace easily can and does
Purchase anxiety.

370.

I do not want to know
What Heaven is doing,
But I do want to know
If earth is sincerely crying
For the descent of peace.

371.

When I ask God
The way to Heaven,
He immediately tells me
To go and ask peace.

372.

When I give God
My heart's most special gift:
Peace,
God gives me
His Life's most perfect Gift:
Perfection.

373.

World-disdain
Does not give my life
Even an iota of peace.

374.

World-doubt and world-suspicion
Do not give my life
Even an iota of peace.

375.

World-acceptance, world-concern,
World-patience, world-sympathy
And world-oneness
Give my life
A peace-fountain-heart.

376.

My Lord, are You tired of anything?
"Yes, My child, I am.
I am tired of
World-peace-hypocrisy-talkers."

377.

Joy comes from
Learning something very special.
Peace comes from
Becoming a self-giving fountain-heart.

378.

My Lord Supreme tells me
That joy is my birthright
In my outer life of expanding dedication.
My Lord Supreme tells me
That peace is my birthright
In my inner life of climbing aspiration.

379.

Peace is divinely real
And supremely perfect
In the lap of my God-realisation-hope.

380.

God blesses my heart every day
With a fresh supply of peace,
But alas,
My violent God-disobedience-mind
Every day totally destroys it.

381.

Yesterday I was
My peace-fascination-mind.
Today I am
My peace-invocation-heart.

382.

Not by changing the appearances
Of the outer life,
But by improving the realities
Of the inner life,
We all can have peace.

383.

God is not worried
When peace leads us
To our supreme destination.

384.

My hope hopes for
One day more.
My peace longs for
God-Eternity and God-Infinity.

385.

The peace-song
Is the only song
That this world of ours
Has not yet been able to sing
Perfectly.

386.

Peace
Is not when death
Draws near.
Peace
Is when my unconditional
God-surrender
Draws near.

387.

The rising sun
Blesses my mind
With joy.
The setting sun
Blesses my heart
With peace.

388.

Peace I feel not
When I long to retire
From the world.
Peace I feel
When I long to aspire
For the world.

389.

Peace
Does not fall from
The wings of night.
Peace
Falls from
The eye of the sun.

390.

When my heart shows God
And gives God what it has:
Surrender,
God shows my mind
And gives my mind what He has:
Peace.

391.

The mind that enjoys
Discourses on world-war
Will never have a peace-dreamer
As its listener.

392.

Reality-awareness
Is not peace.
Reality-embodiment
Is peace.

393.

At last I have discovered
The only way to have peace
For myself
Is to feast my eyes
On my Lord's Compassion-Beauty.

394.

Only in
The aspiration-flower-heart
Can one really pray
For peace.

395.

Only with
The receptivity-beauty-heart
Can one have
Real peace.

396.

Alas, what a fool I am.
Every day I look for peace
In the pathless woods of my mind.

397.

Peace-ignoring world leaders
Will fail one by one —
Every one of them.

398.

Universal oneness
Is a definite return
To transcendental peace.

399.

Each time
I have a pure thought
In my mind,
An angel of peace from Heaven
Descends into my life.

400.

God asks only His Peace
And nobody else
To paint the ever-transcending beauty
Of His Universe.
