Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 253

25201

O my Lord Supreme,
Do bless me at every moment
So that I can walk through
The Golden Gates
Of Your Will.

25202

The daily newness of my heart
Is enabling me to run fast —
Faster than the fastest —
To my goal.

25203

Silently, softly, sweetly
My soul speaks
To my heart, mind, vital and body.

25204

Yours will be a tremendous
Success and progress
If you are devoted to all
The rules and regulations.

25205

If the mind
Gets malicious pleasure
In disobedience,
This mind will be worse
Than a devil.

25206

God-discovery
Will not remain far
If you can leave
Your aspiration-heart-door
Wide open.

25207

You have to explore the unknown
If you want to get blessings
From the Unknowable.

25208

World-transformation is teamwork.
Your body, vital, mind, heart and soul
Must work together.

25209

Ask not why there is nobody
At God’s Palace Gate.
Ask why you are
Not there yourself!

25210

The austerity of the mind
Does not last.
It again goes back
To doubt-indulgence-life.

25211

If you have abundant
Faith in God,
Do you not think that
God will have at least the same in you,
If not infinitely more?

25212

There are seekers
Who extol God’s Beauty, God’s Power
And God’s Light.
I only extol God’s Forgiveness.

25213

Whether rightly or wrongly,
Each generation maintains the right
To define God in its own way.

25214

The outer enemies we may confront
Only once.
But the inner enemies —
Doubt, suspicion and disobedience —
We confront every day.

25215

Do not blame God
If you fail by yourself.
God has asked you so many times
Not to toil alone and unassisted.

25216

If your heart
Is empty of intensity,
Then how will you ever
Grow receptivity?

25217

Is there any problem
That is not heavy and oppressive
In our life?
Is there any problem that is not?

25218

A seeker is he
Who basks
In the Compassion-Sunshine
Of the Lord Supreme.

25219

Spirituality does not relax,
Does not perplex.
Spirituality only injects
Divinity
Into our aspiration-heart.

25220

Countless prayer-cries
And countless meditation-smiles
We need
To realise God.

25221

Our surrender-heart
And surrender-life
Will always succeed
In our inner life and outer life as well.

25222

There are a few mind-diseases
Incurable.
Needless to say,
Disobedience tops the list!

25223

The eventual extinction
Of ignorance-night
Is not our mental hallucination.
It is a God-Promise-Announcement.

25224

I have once more
Started studying
In my childhood eagerness-school.

25225

Why waste your time
Repairing your old aspiration-train,
Once you become the possessor
Of a new aspiration-train?

25226

My Lord,
You are so kind to me.
You have allowed my heart
To speak for me.

25227

To smile soulfully and unreservedly
Is a momentous success-jump
In the inner world.

25228

God does not use His Mind
To understand our prayers.
He uses His Heart
To feel our prayers.

25229

Your heart has to be
As clear as daylight.
Your mind has to be
As plain as water.
Then God will not be able
To hide from you.

25230

Come right out and say
That God’s Compassion
Is for you
And your dedication
Is only to God.

25231

Everything has to obey
The inevitable.
Again, everything can be transformed
If the Touch of God is available.

25232

You just want to put
Powerful pressure on your doubt.
That is not enough!
It has to surrender to you
Totally and unconditionally.

25233

Never keep
Your appointments
With unaspiring thoughts.

25234

“My Lord,
Give me what I need
And not what I want.”
This prayer is not just ordinary,
But extraordinary!

25235

Do not use
Your aspiration-elevator
Alone.
Take others with you,
If you want to succeed
Most convincingly.

25236

When will your life
Be in aspiration-readiness
And dedication-readiness,
O when?

25237

Discard your brooding heaviness-mind
And life-darkening vital.
Lo and behold,
Divinity’s victory will be all yours!

25238

Your slightest negligence
Will indefinitely delay
God’s God-manifestation
On earth.

25239

Finally God has revoked
All the privileges that He gave
To my suppressive mind
And oppressive vital.

25240

Surrender to God’s Will
Is the beginning
Of God’s Dream-manifestation
On earth.

25241

I do not want to be a subscriber
To God’s Light and God’s Delight.
I just want to be a subscriber
To God’s Compassion-Eye.

25242

Every time we come into the world,
We get tremendous pleasure in saying
We live in an age of transition.

25243

There is only one way
To sit at God’s Feet,
And that way is to offer
Your heart’s streaming tears
And your soul’s beaming smiles
To God.

25244

The determination to try
Again and again
Is the beginning
Of our God-satisfaction.

25245

Do not ponder your misfortunes.
Go forward!
Life is not a risky business.
Life is a God-satisfaction-promise.

25246

God does not ask us to make
A life-risking commitment.
He asks us to make
A God-life-manifestation-commitment.

25247

If you are fearful
Of losing
God’s Cosmic Game,
Then God-realisation
Will always be a far cry.
Therefore,
Be brave, be brave, be brave!

25248

There is no such thing
As ordinary prayer.
All prayers are special
In their own right.

25249

My mind’s tardiness
Will never have time
To meet with the readiness
Of God’s Heart.

25250

Come, come, my Lord Supreme,
To wake me
With Your Thunder-Feet
From the age-old ignorance-sleep!

25251

There are many things
That the mind needs.
The most important thing
The mind needs
Is the beauty of purity-blossoms.

25252

The God-Hour
Means the smile
Of infinite Power.

25253

If you do not feed your hope
Every day
With your aspiration-heart,
Then how can you succeed
In your life?

25254

What is hesitation,
If not
An opportunity-squanderer-mind?

25255

What is indifference,
If not the indulgence
Of self-confinement?

25256

When our mind is captured
By feeble facts,
We do not allow our mind
To sing and dance
With the beauty and power
Of realities.

25257

O where is our peace?
It is all imprisoned
By our doubting mind!

25258

I do not need
The God of distant worlds.
I do not need
The God of the past.
I need the God
Who lives here in the breath of now.

25259

Life is fruitless,
Life is useless
When God-service is missing.

25260

The mind-ship does not realise
That quite often it is travelling
Inside doubt-jealousy-suspicion-waters.

25261

Devotion is not
An insignificant thing.
It is infinitely more valuable
Than you can ever imagine.

25262

The more I see the rapidity
Of the machine-world,
The more I see futility
Dancing all around us.

25263

It is so easy for doubt
To come to us
Under the garb
Of implicit frankness.

25264

When my heart sings,
It is so soul-stirring
That the mind can never
Comprehend.

25265

The joy
A self-giving heart embodies
Can never be matched.

25266

We are born on earth
To prove that every day
A new God
With a new Promise
Takes birth in each human heart.

25267

If the heart’s belief
Does not become the life’s action,
Then that belief is hardly better
Than disbelief.

25268

What is happiness,
If not something
That is mixed with unseen pain?

25269

When I do not allow my mind
To govern me,
Then my heart gets a free access
To God’s Will.

25270

As the mind’s discoveries
Have no end,
Even so, the heart’s inventions
Will never end.

25271

God tells my mind
That if it agrees to take from God
As much as possible,
Then He will give everything
As soon as possible.

25272

Let us once and for all
Be frank with ourselves.
Do we have an irresistible urge
To please God the Expectation,
Or do we have an irresistible urge
To feed our own countless expectations?

25273

God has been playing
His Compassion-Game
For a great many years.
He has now decided
To play a new Game:
Justice-Height.

25274

Alas, humanity’s ingratitude
Is deeper
Than the bottomless ocean!

25275

Alas, our wild vital
Is overpowering us
Like a ferocious tiger
Devouring its prey.

25276

Alas, do you not see
That your doubting mind
Has arrested your inner progress-smiles?

25277

Our frustration says
What we cannot.
God’s Compassion says
What we can.

25278

The mind has
Its monkey-tricks.
The heart has
Its deer-speed.

25279

Most of us do not love God
With our aspiration-heart.
We just revere Him
With our mind
At a safe distance.

25280

The heart-lover can embrace us
Only when we realise
That the mind is a constant deceiver.

25281

Everything that is beautiful
And fruitful
Grows on our life’s humility-tree.

25282

A lion-hearted
God-fulfilment-determination
Is all that he needs.

25283

A purity-heart is, indeed,
A straight path
To God’s Satisfaction-Smile.

25284

The final and decisive battle is over
Inside my mind.
From now on I shall be
Only for God.

25285

I do not need
A master magician-mind.
I need a singer-musician-heart.

25286

To have a simplicity-life
And a sincerity-mind
Is, indeed, a decisive victory
In our spiritual life.

25287

Everything that God has and is
Is definitely approachable
And usable.

25288

If you have a heart
That is not marred by flaws,
Then God’s Will can dance
Inside your heart-garden.

25289

An aspiration-heart relinquishes
As soon as possible
Its ignorance-employment.

25290

Listening to God’s Will
Is not enough.
It has to be constant,
Plus conscious.

25291

God every day expects
Something more divine and perfect
From His chosen ones.

25292

A God-hungry aspiration
Can be satisfied
Only with higher Dreams
And Realities of God.

25293

Where is God’s Love?
Alas, it is shrouded in man’s
Abysmal obscurity and impurity.

25294

Alas, when will I realise
That the very Name-utterance of God
Is a great privilege in my life?

25295

Alas, when will I realise
That each moment
Is a golden
God-manifestation-opportunity?

25296

Alas,
My heart-bank has become bankrupt
Because I have taken for so many years
Mind-information-education.

25297

God does not want us to be ready
For the unknown rivers of sorrow.
He asks us only to swim and sing
In today’s happiness-multiplied
Murmuring rivers.

25298

He who has turned his life
Towards God
Consciously and devotedly
Will, without fail, succeed
Either in the immediacy of today
Or in the very near future.

25299

The soul does not
Command us.
It only whispers.

25300

Our excellence-virtues can lead us
Right up to God’s Palace Gate.
But our unconditional surrender
Will immediately lead us to God’s Throne,
Where He is always available.
