Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 112

11101

God’s Compassion is ready to tell you
How to increase your heart’s
Aspiration-cry.
God’s Compassion is ready to tell you
How to increase your life’s
Dedication-smile.
Just look at God’s Compassion-Eye!

11102

Your mind-room has to be kept
As beautiful and pure
As your heart-garden.
Only then will God pilot your life-boat
Cheerfully and proudly.

11103

If you forget your oneness-key,
You will never be able to enter
God’s secret and sacred Satisfaction-Room.

11104

When did God ask you
To walk on ignorance-road?
He has always been asking you
To fly with Him
On His Heart-Beauty’s Compassion-Wings.

11105

If you do not keep yourself
Away from ignorance-hunger,
How can God grant you
His Heart’s Confidence-Smile
To represent Him here on earth?

11106

Tranquillity is a direct flight
To the consciousness-illumined land.
All other flights
Are bound to stop over
At various mind-airports.

11107

If your heart cries for perfection-oneness,
Then God will grant you
Not only perfection-oneness
But also His Heart’s
Satisfaction-Fulness.

11108

If you go to desire-bank,
What can you expect from yourself
Except to use up
All your pleasure-accounts?

11109

Export doubt
From your mind-land.
Import faith
From God’s Perfection-Land.
Try to do both immediately!

11110

When my devotion-tears
Drop at my Lord’s Compassion-Feet,
God plays on His
Dream-fulfilled Clarion.

11111

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
I am my desire-desert.
Can You not be Your Forgiveness-River?

11112

My Lord Supreme every day
Tells me two things to do:
To steal Compassion
From His Vision-Eye
And to steal Satisfaction
From His Oneness-Heart.

11113

Every day I try to nourish
My heart’s aspiration-cry
With my soul’s delight-flames.

11114

Impossibility
And the mind’s phantom-hours
Are for those who live in the mind
And cannot go beyond
The solid confines of the mind.

11115

Transcendence-perfection
Is the ultimate evolution
Of absolute Truth.

11116

Every morning
I love to watch the dawn
Of my heart’s hopeful smiles.

11117

O my purity-heart,
Where can I find your equal?
O my wisdom-soul,
Where can I find your equal?
O my Lord’s Forgiveness-Feet,
Where can I find Your equal?

11118

If your mind is an abysmal abyss,
Then pray to God to allow your soul
To enter into the abyss
With its silence-light.

11119

Your Master is he
Who is a perfect slave
To God’s all-fulfilling Will
In your own aspiration-life.

11120

If you sing with your heart’s
Inevitability-singer,
Then your mind’s impossibility-singer
Will definitely run away.

11121

If your soul is ready
To fight with ignorance-night,
Then be with your soul
Soulfully and bravely
To the finish!

11122

One God-man can take care
Not only of you
But of the entire world.
All he needs is
Your heart’s sleepless faith in him.

11123

Do not be afraid of tasting
The bitterness of failure.
Be brave!
The sweetness of success
Will before long befriend you.

11124

If you allow your thoughts
To control your mind,
Your heart’s cry will never be able
To reach God’s Compassion-Eye-Height.

11125

Never make a deal with your mind!
Are you a fool?
Your mind will eventually rob you
Of all the divine qualities
You were born with.

11126

You want to destroy
Your mind’s thought-factory.
Indeed, this is a wrong desire.
Do not destroy the thought-factory,
But produce God-loving thoughts
In that factory.

11127

With your boring mind
You displease the divine around you.
With your sleeping body
You displease the divine within you.

11128

Farewell, O earth!
I do not need your wild criticism
Any more.

Farewell, O Heaven!
I do not need your heartless indifference
Any more.

11129

You are your small life’s
Tiny dedication.
How can you expect God to grant you
His vast Satisfaction-Smile?

11130

Every morning God comes
To visit your heart,
But your ignorance-heart
Enjoys living in a coma.

11131

If you have no aspiration-cry,
How can your Master
Receive God’s Satisfaction-Smile
For you?

11132

At long last
My heart has found its purity,
Which was stolen away
By my mind’s impurity-thief.

11133

The human mind
Does not want to stand
At God-journey’s starting line.
It only likes to stand
At man-journey’s starting line.

11134

If you meditate on yourself —
On your doubting mind
And on your trembling heart —
When and how can God grant you
His own Soul’s adamantine Will?

11135

Heaven did not help me
When I came down into the world.
Now earth is not helping me either,
Although sleeplessly I am trying
To fly into Heaven.

11136

What are the privileges
Of God-Friendship?
You can enjoy God’s
Unconditional blessingful Love
All the time.

11137

“God for God’s sake”
From now on
Shall open up the new frontier
Of my improvement-promise.

11138

Each human being has to study
Either for a short time
Or for a long time
On ignorance-campus.

11139

If you want to please God,
Then the easiest way
Is to keep your purity-heart
At His disposal.

11140

God does not want
The habitual sullenness
Of your useless vital.
He wants the rare soulfulness
Of your truth-manifesting vital.

11141

The foul tongue of human criticism
Cannot hurt you
If you fly with the love-wings
Of your soul-bird.

11142

No doubt-bullet can kill you
If you wear the faith-shield
Of your heart’s aspiration-flames.

11143

If you are wanting in inner courage
In your aspiration-life,
Then yours will be the progress
Of the slowest tortoise.

11144

Each human being is blessed
With a few Heavenly virtues,
But the chief of all virtues
Is self-giving.

11145

Time will eventually pardon you
And all your untold crimes,
But the question is
Whether you will have the daring capacity
To forgive yourself.

11146

Vaster than vastness,
Sweeter than sweetness,
Is the seeker’s humility-fulness.

11147

O my mind,
How can I ever forgive you?
Do you think I do not know
All about
Your cleverly secret meeting
With the doubt-dragon?

11148

Your mind’s small eyes of curiosity
And your mind’s big ears of curiosity
Will not be able to receive
Your soul’s luminosity —
Never!

11149

You must daily pray and meditate.
A simple thing like that
Will bring God
The infinite Compassion and Satisfaction
To you.

11150

God excuses us
For each and every possible fault
Of ours.
Again, it is He who expects
That we shall not repeat
The same old story
Over and over again.

11151

A carefree,
Vagabond satisfaction-life
Is founded upon
Man’s hallucination-mind.

11152

If you are a clever man,
Then you will try
To surprise the world
With your mind’s brilliance.

If you are a wise seeker,
Then you will try
To inspire the world
With your heart’s cry.

11153

Why are you so anxious
To be left alone?
If you want satisfaction
From your life,
Then there is only one way
To achieve it,
And that is by establishing
Your sleepless oneness
With the world.
There is no other way!

11154

A God-hungry soul
Will never be threatened
By a doubtful mind.

11155

Your life’s progress-journey
Will stop nowhere
If your heart is the possessor
Of a universal oneness-belief.

11156

If your heart is a God-dreamer,
Then eventually
You are meant to be
God’s creation-lover.

11157

He who has faith
In God’s infinite Compassion-Light
Is definitely basking
In God-Eternity’s Sunshine.

11158

The doubting mind enjoys
Tornado-perplexity.
The searching and aspiring mind enjoys
The emptiness-fulness
Of silence-light.

11159

Each unhealthy thought
Is an immediate destroyer
Of your heart’s confidence-plants.

11160

If you have an eye of hope,
If you have a heart of faith
And if you have a life of dynamism,
Then God-fulfilment in and through you
Will definitely be an easy task.

11161

When Heaven descends
It does not see
Even one heart of satisfaction-light
On earth.

When earth ascends
It does not see
Even one soul of frustration-night
In Heaven.

11162

To illumine your mind’s
Confusion-night,
Every day call God by His real Name:
Infinity’s Compassion-Light.

11163

You may allow all your other possessions
To be taken away,
But do not allow one possession of yours
To be stolen,
And that possession is
Your Eternity’s hope-boat.

11164

A God-lover keeps his heart
Always ready
For another God-lover
To come in and station himself.

11165

Do not be a fool!
God has not asked you
To visit the grave
Of your deceased dreams.
He always asks you
To treasure
Your towering dreams.

11166

Only when your aspiration is intense,
Only when your dedication is genuine,
Can you conquer the torture
Of self-doubt.

11167

Even if you do not want
To approach God with your eyes open,
No harm!
But you have to approach God
With your heart’s door wide open!

11168

A seeker’s God-inspired mind
Alone
Can befriend a God-illumined heart.

11169

Your success-sunshine
Can be unlimited
Only when your dedication-arms
Do not enjoy the life
Of comfort and ease.

11170

God and His Compassion-Eye
And God and His Forgiveness-Heart
Are my aspiration-life’s
Faith-steering wheels.

11171

I am expecting God to forgive me.
I do not know, alas,
If God is expecting from me
My complete life-perfection.

11172

Do not give up,
Do not give up!
Your prayer-life
Is your future salvation.
Your meditation-heart
Is your future perfection.
Do not give up!

11173

Each God-inspired thought
Is God’s Satisfaction-Smile
In His manifested earth-consciousness.

11174

Each time I smile at God
With my gratitude-heart,
God grants me His blessingful Hands
And powerful Eye.

11175

I am asking God
To forgive me.
God is asking me
To receive Him first.

11176

God wants you to surrender
To Him
Both your mind’s ignorance-imperfection
And your heart’s wisdom-aspiration.

11177

The bond of oneness,
The aspiring heart is.
The division of mutual aloofness,
The doubting mind is.

11178

Your mind may not be
Tired of seeing
The deception on your face,
But your heart is not only
Tired of it
But also mortified by it.

11179

The human mind desires
The pride of liberty.
The divine heart treasures
The beauty, charm and fruitfulness
Of liberty.

11180

There was a time
When my mind was attached
To temptation-greed.
But now my mind is devoted
To perfection-hunger.

11181

Once you have sown faith-seed
Inside your heart-garden,
You are bound to be supremely happy,
For you will have the capacity
To go far beyond
The confines of reason.

11182

The seeker can easily be blessed
By the illumination and protection-wings
Of a God-sent messenger
If the seeker can sleeplessly live
Inside the genuine core
Of his aspiration-faith.

11183

Do not be afraid of a sharp turn
At every corner of your life!
Do not forget that life
Is a constant challenge,
And only a hero-warrior
Can and will win
On its battlefield.

11184

Dream not
Of hopes for tomorrow.
Live only in today’s
Promise-fulfilment-determination.

11185

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope
Even in the sunset of your life.

11186

Poor mind!
It suffers from
Unproductive worries and anxieties.
Yet it will not welcome or invoke
Infinity’s tranquillity,
For unconsciously it cherishes
The powerful blows of anxiety and worry.

11187

The darkness of the thought-world
Every human being has seen,
But the light of will-power
Very few people can invoke.

11188

Why do you need a diploma
For your virtues,
Since God is eagerly waiting
To place you on His own Throne
And bless you with His own Crown?

11189

The eternal grievances of mankind
Can be illumined
Only when this world is blessed
With a oneness-heart of purity.

11190

Aspiration awakens.
Meditation illumines.
Aspiration awakens
The sleeping heart.
Meditation illumines
The unlit life.

11191

God cares for your life
In a very special way
Because you take very good care
Of your aspiring heart.

11192

God wanted you to give Him
Your oneness-heart.
Alas, you gave Him
Your haughtiness-mind, instead.

11193

The grumbling mind
Should know why it has failed.
The crying heart
Knows why and how it has succeeded.

11194

Because of your heart’s gratitude-leaf,
You are divinely good.
Because of your life’s surrender-flower,
You are supremely perfect.

11195

The heart knows
Where God is.
The mind does not know.
What is infinitely worse,
It does not care to know
Where God is.

11196

You say to God,
“Father, I have failed.”
God says to you,
“Are you so sure, My son?”
You say to God,
“Father, I have succeeded!”
God says to you,
“My son, I am not so sure.”

11197

Since God Himself
Is taking the trouble
Of examining me,
Can I not be strict
With my aspiration-heart
And my dedication-life?

11198

You are assailed by doubts
Because you are not sailing
At every moment
Your heart’s aspiration-boat.

11199

Enough is enough, my mind!
Either you capitulate
To my God-seeking heart
For your radical transformation,
Or you will have to face
Complete annihilation!

11200

God will never stop giving you
His Encouragement-Smile
If your heart really prays
For your life’s unprecedented progress.
