Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 114

11301

You can hear
God’s Compassion-Footsteps
Only when you offer Him
The fragrance of your silence-purity-heart.

11302

Only my gratitude-heart
Doesn’t give my Lord Supreme
Even a mild headache.

11303

If you cannot
Illumine your mind for good,
Try at least
To enjoy a life
Without your bondage-loving mind.

11304

In our aspiration-heart
Evolution gives us
The joy of the Infinite
And revolution gives us
The promise of self-transcendence.

11305

If you want hope-seeds
To sprout in your life,
Then transform your heart
Into your soul’s purity-nest.

11306

It seems to me
That both man and God are burdened
With possible, if not impossible,
Expectations.

11307

A doubting mind
In a thickening life-forest
Is indeed a short-cut
To self-destruction.

11308

Because you have made faith
Your loving and illumining friend,
Your mind — your enemy number one —
Will no longer come to play with you.

11309

God wants you to be
A constantly blossoming
Amateur self-giver.
But what you have done
Is so peculiar.
You have made yourself into
A professional self-pleaser
And self-enjoyer.

11310

Your dream of God-life
Is not a mental hallucination.
Indeed, this is your soul’s
God-manifestation-fulfilment-vision.

11311

If you are your heart’s insecurity,
Needless to say,
You are not pleasing and fulfilling
Your soul’s tranquillity.

11312

If you are planning to run
To Heaven,
First conquer your proud mind
With your humility-heart.

11313

I pray to God to grant my mind
Every day
A new inspiration-ladder
And my heart
A new aspiration-escalator.

11314

How long will you be studying
At the university of fear?
When are you going to start studying
At your heart’s confidence-school?

11315

My heart invites
Only God-loving souls
To be its most distinguished guests.
It never invites ignorance-enjoyers
And their dear relatives.

11316

A restless vital
And a suspicious mind
Eventually cause a series of
Life-destruction-catastrophes.

11317

If your life becomes your heart’s
Sleepless aspiration-hours,
Then God will definitely appear to you
As His Vision’s tallest tower.

11318

Not to be satisfied with the world
Is a malady of the mind.
To speak ill of the world
Is a worse malady of the mind.
To have no faith in the world
Is the worst malady of the mind.

11319

You do not have to do anything else.
Just offer your heart’s
Gratitude-tears
To your Lord Supreme.
His own Compassion-Light-Tears
Will erase the Himalayan blunders
Of your dark past.

11320

He who does not aspire,
He who does not serve,
He who does not love,
He who lives only
In his self-centred life-cave,
Is indeed a delegate
From ignorance-flooded slumberland.

11321

If you believe in
Your future perfection-delight,
Then God will definitely put you
On His Divinity’s Satisfaction-List.

11322

If you enjoy living
In your mind’s fear-forest,
How can God show you
His Heart-Beauty’s
Universal Fragrance-Garden?

11323

When you climb up the Truth-Mountain,
You see that God and His Eternity’s
Compassion-Fulfilment-Fountain
Have been waiting for you.

11324

He who lives a simple, God-loving life
Is chosen by God Himself
To fight for Him
Against devouring ignorance-night.

11325

A single God-chosen soul
Can stand against
Ill-fated humanity’s downfall
And carry humanity’s burden
To Divinity’s highest height.

11326

Who says that each success
Needs a failure-foundation?
No!
What each success needs
Is God’s unconditional
Compassion-Foundation.

11327

God and God’s Love-Smile
Follow only Eternity’s
One-way road.

11328

If an iota of faith-flower-fragrance
You have in your heart-garden,
Then God will come and bless you
With His Divinity’s Pride-Blessings.

11329

If your mind enjoys
Its doubt-confusion-fog,
Then how can your life be
God’s most faithful dog?

11330

Perfection-beauty in the human life
Is possible only when
We do not miss
Our daily aspiration-appointments
With God.

11331

It is high time for the sincere God-lover
To come out of his mind’s
Self-imposed darkness-night.

11332

A God-lover tries
To perfect the world outwardly
While loving the world inwardly
In secrecy supreme.

11333

In silence the peace-lover struggles
Against the sleepless
And countless complaints
From humanity’s mind-market.

11334

Every day water the faith-plant
Inside your heart-garden.
Then you are bound to see
A galaxy of God-fulfilment-opportunities.

11335

To appreciate another aspiring heart
Is to increase the fragrance
Of one’s own heart-garden.

11336

Try a little more compassion!
Your frustration-balloon
Will burst
And your heart’s satisfaction-flower
Will blossom.

11337

You cannot collect wasted time.
You must use your time, present and future,
To the best of your inner capacities.

11338

Do not feel shy
While approaching your Lord Supreme.
Do not be fearful
While approaching your Lord Supreme.
Just have a purity-heart
While approaching your Lord Supreme.

11339

You can never be too busy
To think of God,
For thinking of God soulfully
Grants you His Eternity’s Life.

11340

Living in your doubt-mind
Is as bad as living
In the blind night of self-torture.

11341

Peace does not want
To conquer the world.
Peace only wants to
Unconditionally love the world
For its own oneness-perfection.

11342

You must not hesitate.
You must not delay.
You must immediately uproot
Your mind’s temptation-tree.

11343

To sail the aspiration-lacking danger-seas
Is quite common
For those who live humanity’s desire-life.

11344

If you fall into
The long footsteps of desire,
Your God-realisation-hope
Will be nothing other than
A punctured life-balloon.

11345

Because you are fired by ambition,
You do not see that
God’s all-illumining Light
Grants you the real satisfaction-delight.

11346

Have aspiration-flames.
The world’s ignorance-problems
Will before long be solved.

11347

If your mind does not learn
Your soul’s silence-song,
Then your mind will never be able
To sound God’s Victory-Gong.

11348

If your heart does not take
The surrender-course,
Then your life will never drink
Nectar-bliss.

11349

Either bury your doubt alive
Or starve it to death
If you want to enjoy the beauty
Of your heart’s faith-garden.

11350

First pray to God devotedly
To claim you as His very own.
Then only will you be able
To claim the world as your very own.

11351

Even God’s Compassion-Eye
Will not invite your restlessness-mind
And frustration-vital
To come and visit
His Heart’s Illumination-Home.

11352

Now that you are enjoying
Your heart’s aspiration-light
More than ever before,
Your mind’s ignorance-night
Is bound to grow shorter.

11353

Finally you have decided
To abandon your ego-life.
Therefore, God’s Satisfaction-Delight
Has decided to live
Inside your heart permanently.

11354

If you want God to be hopeful
About your heart’s progress-march,
Then you have to throw
Your mind’s useless thoughts
Into an oblivion-cave.

11355

God and His Heart’s sadness
Will perpetually follow
You and your mind’s madness.

11356

When your mind’s fear
And your heart’s courage wrestle,
You must immediately help your heart
So that you and your heart can quickly reach
Your soul’s promised Divinity-Shore.

11357

O hope, my hope,
Where are you?
Can you not see
That I am
My heart’s helplessness?

O promise, my promise,
Where are you?
Can you not see
That I am
My life’s fruitlessness?

11358

God’s Oneness-Compassion-Eye
Wants to guide the world.
But we want our mind’s division-monarchy
To govern our lives instead.

11359

Every day you must take care
Of your aspiration-heart
And dedication-life
If you want to drink
God’s Compassion-Light
From God’s Perfection-Cup.

11360

Do not allow your consciousness-light
To fight with the world,
But use your consciousness-light
To illumine the mind of the world.

11361

The difference between man and God
Is this:
Man is searching for God
Out of his curiosity.
God is searching for man’s
Satisfaction-heart
Out of His Necessity.

11362

If you have a silence-cry
In your heart today,
Then you will have a sound-smile
In your life tomorrow.

11363

If you keep your perfection-promise,
Then God will definitely keep
His Satisfaction-Promise,
Plus give you His all-fulfilling Love.

11364

Your life’s dedication-branches
Will look most beautiful and powerful
If you keep your heart’s aspiration-tree
In perfect condition.

11365

God’s Compassion-Light
Forgives us every day,
Although every day we are convicted
Of doubt-jealousy-crimes.

11366

An earth-loving man
And a Heaven-serving man
Can easily find the pathway
To God-Satisfaction.

11367

Perfection-delight will always
Remain a far cry
Unless we stop our mind from enjoying
Its self-styled division-night.

11368

Who is deserving
And who is undeserving?
God is at once the unconditional Giver
And the unconditional Receiver.

11369

A true seeker is
A genuine member
Of God’s Compassion-flooded family.

11370

The mind’s darkness-cloud
Can be dispelled
If you value sleeplessly
The climbing flames
Of your aspiration-heart.

11371

How can you be
A world-dominating
Outer conqueror
If you are a sleeplessly crying
Inner beggar?

11372

The modern problem is
Constant relaxation.
The ancient answer is
Sleepless aspiration.

11373

My heart sings God-songs
Only after it has been blessed
By my soul’s divinity-smiles.

11374

What you call
Your little heart,
God calls that very thing
His big Hand.

11375

A true God-lover
Does not have to abide
By his mind’s decisions.
He has only to listen
To his heart’s dictates.

11376

Be careful of your impurity-mind.
Your impurity-mind can easily obliterate
All your God-loving,
God-fulfilling hopes.

11377

You must love and feed
Your heart’s aspiration-cries
More than anything else
If you want to demolish
Your mind’s huge doubt-walls.

11378

You can say farewell
To your failure-life
Just by starting the game
Of soulful self-transcendence.

11379

Do not allow
Your innocence-heart
To be exploited.

Do not allow
Your sincerity-mind
To be exploited.

Do not allow
Your simplicity-life
To be exploited.

11380

When I look at the face of Heaven,
I am completely puzzled.
When I look at the heart of Heaven,
I am immediately illumined.

11381

Do not go near him who owns
Jealousy’s volcano-breath
If you want to have
A safe, pure and God-fulfilled life.

11382

If your heart becomes
The manager of your life,
Then God will definitely invite your heart
To be an important player
In His universal Oneness-Vision-Game.

11383

You may think that God
Has forgotten your promises
Since you yourself have forgotten them.
But unfortunately this is not
And can never be the case.

11384

May my life-breath
Become the resonance
Of God’s Earth-Transformation-Organ.

11385

If you give God your heart’s
Dearest treasure, surrender,
Then God will grant you His Vision’s
Dearest treasure, peace.

11386

What you call desire-satisfaction
Is nothing other than
Your soul’s God-promise-assassination.

11387

If you do not keep
Your suspicion-mind-room
Under lock and key,
Then God will never be able
To give you
Your soul-reality’s victory-crown.

11388

Do you want to possess the world?
Then do the first thing first.
Pray to God
To possess you entirely,
Along with your mind’s desire-forest.

11389

Neither your mind’s doubt
Nor your heart’s faith
Can declare their victory
One over the other.
It is God who has to declare first
Who is the stronger of the two.

11390

You are living in tomorrow’s
False sweetness-dreams.
You must live in today’s
Soulfulness-promise-light.

11391

If you want to know
Who is actually serving God,
I will tell you.
Only those are serving God
Whose hearts are God’s love-lamps.

11392

God’s Motto:
Never give up,
Never give up!

Man’s motto:
Alas, I do not know
When I should start!

11393

Your mind’s determination
Wants to shake the world.
Your heart’s aspiration
Wishes to embrace the world.
Now you have to decide
Whom you want to follow.

11394

God’s Compassion-Eye
And His Forgiveness-Heart
Know everything except one thing:
How to take even a short vacation.

11395

There is no God-reward for you,
For you have not offered
Your selfless service
For God’s supreme manifestation on earth.

11396

You may not tempt anybody,
But you will be hated
Even by the person who has tempted you
When God-hunger arises in him
At God’s choice Hour.

11397

It is not your fear of God
That has shaken
Your faith-foundation in God.
It is your unwillingness to lead
A life divine
That is the cause of your God-desertion.

11398

Your desire-fire you must extinguish,
For that is the only way
You can earn
God’s Satisfaction-Blessings.

11399

As you are blind
To God’s Compassion-Light,
Even so, God’s Heart is blind
To your ignorance-night.

11400

God grants His infinite Compassion-Light
And Satisfaction-Delight
To those chosen instruments of His
Who never delay in serving Him
And manifesting Him
In His creation vast.
