Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 194

19301

Because I am devoted
To the inner life only,
Whatever my Inner Pilot
Asks me to do,
I do it soulfully
Plus cheerfully.

19302

I do not compete
With the rest of the world.
I compete only with myself,
For my progress is my true victory.

19303

If and when
Human beings get peace of mind
And inner security,
Only then will there be
Real peace in the world.

19304

I do not create the message;
God is supplying me
With His Message.
My job is only to deliver it
To the aspiring and crying humanity.

19305

The Music of our Lord Supreme
Is for those
Who are aspiring to become better,
Who love God’s creation
And want to serve it,
Who are sleeplessly dreaming of a world
Of peace and oneness.

19306

God is fully responsible
For my life.
I am responsible only
For my soulful willingness
To surrender my body, vital,
Mind, heart and soul
To God, my Inner Pilot.

19307

From this day on
I shall not underestimate
My heart-capacities
And not overestimate
My mind-capacities.

19308

I must be aware of the fact
That any God-idea
Can completely change my life.

19309

The perfection-dream
Of my life today
Was founded on
My yesterday’s self-giving.

19310

A comfort-seeking life
Will be
A victory-denied being.

19311

Command yourself first!
Only then will God
Demand everything from the world
For you.

19312

The remembrance
Of the past failure-life
Leads us to slow death.
The remembrance
Of the past surrender-heart
Leads us to God’s Embrace.

19313

God-dreamers are good.
God-lovers are better.
God-servers are the best.

19314

God the Compassion
Wants me to stand
Side by side with Him.

19315

You can make the fastest progress
If you can say,
“I came into the world
To love God, only God.
I came into the world
To serve God, only God.
I came into the world
To manifest God,
Only God.”

19316

The day I offer my life’s surrender
And my heart’s gratitude
To my Lord Supreme unconditionally
Is my real birthday,
The beginning of my new, divine life.

19317

God observes the seeker’s birthday
Only when He sees the seeker
Crying most sincerely
For his own perfect perfection in life.

19318

Success is visible
In the outer life.
Progress is visible
In the inner life.
But unlike success,
Progress brings with it
Abiding satisfaction.

19319

If you intensify your eagerness,
You receive more from God.
The increase of your inner wealth
Is the evolution
Of your inner, even outer, life.

19320

Every day
My aspiration-heart is singing songs
Of love, devotion, surrender
And gratitude
To my Lord Beloved Supreme,
Him to please
In His own Way.

19321

Music is the universal language.
May we all live,
Through soulful music,
In the world-heart’s oneness-home.

19322

It is God-songs alone
That melt my heart
And touch the very depths
Of my inner being.

19323

Spontaneous God-love
Does not need
Any explanation.

19324

Each time I devotedly dive within,
I feel I am going deep,
Deeper, deepest,
Where I find Infinity’s Bliss.

19325

Some seekers shed crocodile tears
In the twinkling of an eye.
Alas, they never feel the beauty
Of their real heart-tears.

19326

What we need is soulful oneness,
Not outer mastery.
We must offer our oneness-height
To the God-lovers and truth-seekers
Who are looking for peace
In their lives.

19327

There is not a single moment
When our heartbeat
Is not singing a song.
But we must make sure
It is a God-fulfilling song.

19328

Fulfilment you want?
Before the interference
Of the mind begins,
Fulfil yourself by identifying
With the spirit’s voice within.

19329

For God-lovers, music-lovers
And divinity-lovers,
Each soulful song
Is a most delicious inner banquet.

19330

Each soulful song
Gives the quintessence
Of one hundred pages
Full of inspiration, aspiration
And delight.

Each soulful song
Is a short-cut
To our destination:
The Golden Shore.

19331

With our soulful prayers
Let us enter into the consciousness
Of the truth-seekers and God-lovers,
Together to create a new life and a new world
For a new generation.

19332

O seeker,
The Supreme is more than willing
To give you something,
But you also have to be willing
To receive it.

19333

The endless fountain of creativity
Comes from only one Source,
And that Source
Is the unconditional Compassion
Of my Lord Beloved Supreme.

19334

Our Lord Supreme bestows upon us
His unconditional Compassion-Light,
And according to our receptivity
He creates in and through us.

19335

The outer world
Has to be consciously awakened.
Only then will it be willing
To devotedly accept
The beauty and divinity
Of the inner world.

19336

My heart-cries are invited
By God’s blue-gold soaring birds
To accompany them to the skies
Of the ever-transcending Beyond.

19337

My Lord Supreme,
Every day I fail You,
Yet repeatedly
You give me another chance.

19338

Fearful are my mind’s tears.
Deceitful are my vital’s tears.
Beautiful are my heart’s tears.
Powerful are my soul’s tears.
Fruitful are my life’s tears.

19339

Once you enter
Into the spiritual life,
You have to realise
That your human pride has no place,
But your divine pride has.

19340

May my prayer-mind-flower
Be multiplied every morning.
May my meditation-heart-fragrance
Be multiplied every evening.

19341

Each aspiring heart
Eventually becomes fluent
In God’s Oneness-Heart-Language.

19342

Although God’s Plans
Are inconceivable
And God’s Dreams
Are unimaginable,
God Himself
Is always lovable.

19343

Devotion empty of gratitude
Does not and cannot please
The Inner Pilot Supreme.

19344

When the mind lives under
A cloud of suspicion,
The life is forced to accept
The arrival of destruction.

19345

Each time I become a desire-victim,
I go farther and farther away
From my Lord’s Compassion-Eye
And Perfection-Feet.

19346

Each time you disappoint your soul,
You get a sound scolding
From your soul,
Although you may not be aware of it.
When the scoldings do not produce any effect,
There comes a time when the soul dances
Its destruction-dance
In your life.

19347

Everybody can claim to be
A God-seeker.
Everybody cannot claim to be
A God-server.

19348

God loves those
Who have constant faith-energy
And faith-dynamism
In God and for God.

19349

The obedience-passengers
In the Golden Boat
Are the true pride
Of the Golden Boatman.

19350

God sings a Satisfaction-Song
At the end
Of each self-giving deed of ours.

19351

A spiritual Master is the collector
Of countless experiences
From countless lives.

19352

My Lord Supreme tells me
In strict confidence
That my life’s perfection will dawn
Only when I see cheerfully
His blessingful and purposeful Presence
In all human beings with no exception.
Needless to say,
This includes my enemies.

19353

Aspiration-opportunity,
Dedication-opportunity,
Manifestation-opportunity:
These three are indeed
God’s unconditional Blessing-Boons.

19354

The very purpose of time
Is to lead mankind forward,
Not backward,
To its supreme destination.

19355

Love, devotion, surrender:
These three divine boons
Not only can save humanity,
But also can raise humanity
To the sky of Infinity’s Delight.

19356

Immortal progress
Belongs to
Eternity’s self-offering.

19357

Today is the day
For me to claim God
As my own, very own.
Today is the day
For me to prove to God
And the whole world
That I live on earth
Only for God-manifestation
And God-Satisfaction.

19358

When wisdom dawns,
We invite our new
Aspiration-brothers and sisters
To replace our old desire-friends.

19359

God is not the one who recognises
My earthly calendar-age.
God is the one who tells me
I live inside the heart
Of Eternity’s here and now.

19360

Never give up hope
If you want to become
The beauty of your heart
And the fragrance of your soul.

19361

A complicated mind
Is afraid of joy.
Therefore,
It does not allow joy
To come in.

19362

My aspiration-heart-blossoms
Are indeed the certificates of merit
From my Lord Supreme.

19363

The heart receives
Blessing-Light from God.
The life achieves
Perfection only in God.

19364

I do not want to become
The king
Of the desiring minds.
I want to become
The brother
Of the aspiring hearts.

19365

What are you doing, my mind?
When are you going to invite God
To bless you, love you
And illumine you?

19366

What makes you think,
O my mind,
That I need you desperately?
Have I not told you time and again
That you have always been wrong
And you have always misled
And misguided me?

19367

This is the human life-story:
Confusion within,
Confusion without.
Confusion reigns supreme
All-where in human life.

19368

The great dream
Is love.
The greater dream
Is surrender.
The greatest dream
Is peace.

19369

Study your own life
Until the end of your life.
See how often and how much
You have loved God
In His own Way.

19370

The more we walk towards happiness
For our personal gain,
The farther away we go
From true happiness-shore.

19371

Believe in your heart’s
Purity-strength.
You will be able to conquer
The farthest length
Of your impurity-mind.

19372

If you keep your gratitude-heart
Locked within,
How can you ever see
God’s Rainbow-Smiles?

19373

Who deceives me most?
My deception-mind.
Who occupies my thoughts?
My impure mind.

19374

Age need not bind you.
Age need not blind you.
Age should only help you
To see the real in you
As soon as possible.

19375

Divine success will be found
Not in the persistence-vital,
Not in the insistence-mind,
But in the self-giving aspiration-heart.

19376

When you do not expect anything
From this world,
The whole world will be ready
To be at your express command.

19377

I am not proud of what I have.
I am not proud of what I am.
I am only proud of being
A regular student
In the inner aspiration-school.

19378

Purity, sincerity, humility:
These divine gifts I am receiving
From my aspiration-heart
On a day-to-day basis.

19379

Every day
For God’s powerful Presence
Inside my mind,
I pray.
Every day
For God’s peaceful Presence
Inside my heart,
I meditate.

19380

Our earthly attachment
And our Heavenly disobedience
Are together found.

19381

I do not want to be
A world-competition-fighter.
I want to be
A self-transcendence-seeker.

19382

Technology-supremacy
Cannot and must not
Dominate
The heart’s oneness-ecstasy.

19383

When faith is absent
From the mind,
Hope disappears
From the heart.

19384

I am trying to live
On only two things:
My aspiration-breath
And my dedication-heart.

19385

Success comes to me
When I say, “I can.”
Progress comes to me
When I say, “God alone can,
God alone does,
In and through me.”

19386

Everything in this world
Is similar and familiar.
But nothing can I dare
To claim as my own.

19387

Alas, an earth-bound life
Is empty of aspiration,
Even of imagination.

19388

Divine love cannot be exported
Or imported,
But it can blossom everywhere.

19389

My unwillingness-mind,
I am not looking for
Your extinction.
I am only waiting for
Your transformation.

19390

May my hope grow.
May my promise glow.
May my compassion flow.

19391

O my aspiration-heart,
Show no compassion to my mind
When it deliberately wants
To be surrounded
By the thickest ignorance-fog.

19392

When I am in my ignorance-mind,
I ask the world to change for me.
When I am in my wisdom-heart,
I ask the world to change only for God.

19393

I am entranced
Not by God’s Justice-Light,
But by His Forgiveness-Delight.

19394

The human mind is made of
Godless and aimless centuries.
The human heart is made of
God-aspiration and
God-dedication-millennia.

19395

God-obedience expedites
Our life-boat-journey
Far, far beyond our imagination.

19396

Your mind-prayer cannot grant you
Silence-perfection
And silence-satisfaction.
Your heart-meditation
Can and does.

19397

The expectation-mind
Is sooner or later responsible
For a frustration-life.

19398

Self-doubt
Tortures hope-plants
And uproots confidence-trees.

19399

O ignorance-night,
I am cancelling once and for all
All our forthcoming appointments.

19400

At every moment,
Each time we breathe in
Or breathe out,
May our life-breath sing
The supreme Victory-Song
Of our Lord Beloved Supreme.
