Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 252

25101

Accept God’s Will
Happily,
Rejoice in God’s Will
Proudly,
And move on with God’s Will
Speedily.

25102

What is spirituality?
It is the unparalleled wisdom
That tells us to leave everything
In God’s safe Hands.

25103

God Himself carries
A gratitude-heart
To the summit of His Bliss.

25104

When I love God,
I live in faith-Heaven.
When I love myself,
I live in doubt-hell.

25105

We see humanity’s good qualities
Less and less
When we misunderstand them
More and more.

25106

Humanity’s ingratitude
Is a subject
That God rarely speaks of.

25107

Desire-fulfilment
Is a thing that is sought
By both kings and commoners.

25108

Truth is a gentleman.
It does not forcefully
Elbow its way through
The crowds of ignorance-night.

25109

Just as the outer sun rises
At the right time,
Even so, the inner sun is bound to rise
To illumine
The doubt-insecurity-jealousy-covered world.

25110

The inner peace
Must always be
Earned and achieved.

25111

God loves a humility-mind.
But He loves infinitely more
A gratitude-heart.

25112

Alas, I am trying to make my mind
Better and better.
Instead, it is becoming
Bitter and more bitter.

25113

Have patience!
Today’s great difficulties
Will tomorrow bring in
Rich blessings.

25114

A singular and significant fact is that
Without faith
We can make no spiritual progress.

25115

My unconditional surrender
Is enthroned
By the Breath of God’s own Will.

25116

Neither the latitude
Nor the longitude
Of God’s Compassion
Shall we ever know.

25117

God always loves my heart’s
Love-devotion-songs.
He is never tired of them.

25118

God’s illumining Ways
Are always
Fulfilling plenitude.

25119

If you want to make
Faster than the fastest progress
In your spiritual life,
Stop counting, calculating
And measuring.

25120

Try again to love God
In God’s own Way.
This time it will be easier.
Next time it will be still easier.

25121

The golden and sunlit path
Runs always through
The seeker’s
Inspiration-aspiration-dedication-life.

25122

God wants to keep
Many things secret from us
Precisely because
They are extremely sacred.

25123

God’s Compassion-Stores
Are found to be
Always full.

25124

God’s Satisfaction-Stores
Are always
Totally empty.

25125

During my deep meditation,
I lose all my mind’s differences
The way a river loses
All its differences in the sea.

25126

I wish to grow and glow and flow
Only inside the Heart
Of God’s Peace-Home.

25127

God always gives us
The right lesson
At the right time.
Impatience can never
And will never believe it.

25128

God asks us to wait.
He also asks us to wait
Without anxieties and worries.

25129

God tells us to wait
For His choice Hour.
But alas, we are not apt
To believe in Him.

25130

When God enters into our heart,
He does not come to amass facts
For a first-hand investigation,
But for us to accept
His Compassion-Eye.

25131

A God-seeker,
When he does not pray and meditate,
Knows that his heart will be tormented
And his life will be troubled.

25132

A sleepless willingness-heart
Is the bridge-builder
Between man and God.

25133

God wants to be manifested
Through our self-giving,
But we manifest God variously
With our various intentions.

25134

Doubt proclaims itself
As something extremely difficult
For man to understand.

25135

In the spiritual world
We want unity
And not uniformity.

25136

The gratitude-moment
Should be a silence-flooded
Dream-reality.

25137

There are many things in the world
That are indefinable
But not unknowable.

25138

It is not God’s Justice-Light
But God’s Compassion-Height
That presides over
Our aspiration-dedication-committee meeting.

25139

Each soulful meditation
Carries us to the supreme height
Of ecstasy.

25140

What mankind always forgets
Is that each man
Is a unique God-manifestation on earth.

25141

Enough of my recreational life!
Now I want
A re-creation-heart.

25142

My mind has definitely touched
The desire-extremity.
Now I am compelling my mind
To touch the aspiration-extremity.

25143

For God-manifestation,
Believe it or not,
It will take millions and millions of years
Of sleepless, breathless and selfless effort.

25144

To transform our mind-jungle
Into our heart-garden,
We have to put an end
To our self-doubt-life.

25145

In vain God invites
Our body, vital, mind and heart
To attend the soul’s freedom-party.

25146

Dig not doubt-graves.
You will find nothing
Worth seeing.

25147

Why do we not make satisfactory progress
In our spiritual life?
Because our one eye is in Truth-Heaven
And our other eye is in falsehood-hell!

25148

God helps us in so many ways
To take shelter inside
The heart of our wisdom-light.

25149

Each individual soul
Has his obvious place
In God-utility.

25150

O my doubting mind,
You have simply no right
To kick aside my heart’s
Heaven-climbing ladder.

25151

The thorns of the desire-world
Will one day
Definitely be turned into
The roses of the aspiration-world.

25152

If you are willing,
Then definitely God will give you
The capacity to receive Him.

25153

The desiring mind
Enjoys conspiracies.
The aspiring heart
Enjoys ecstasies.

25154

The wisdom-light of the heart
Is not for understanding.
It is for feeling.

25155

As you breathe in
Your faith-breath,
Even so, breathe out
Your doubt-breath.

25156

Manifest your love of God,
And do not accumulate
Your love of God
In your inner life.

25157

My Lord, my sincerity speaks.
Do renew
My aspiration-heart’s enthusiasm.

25158

If you do not have
God-aspiration-moments,
How can you have
A God-satisfaction-life?

25159

May my life long for
A new beginning,
A new hope
And a new promise!

25160

Spirituality
Is a divine art
And not a human science.

25161

Where the battle is,
The goal also
Has to be there.

25162

My fear of God
Again and again saves my life
From the all-devouring doubt-tiger.

25163

It seems that
The mind’s disobedience-chain
Never ends.

25164

My heartbreaking helplessness
Quicker than the quickest
Has carried me to my Lord’s
Compassion-Feet.

25165

Not only do I know,
But also I feel every day
That I belong to
My Lord Supreme alone.

25166

We mourn for everything else,
But not for the loss
Of our spiritual qualities.

25167

Can you not see
That your Master is creating
Tremendous receptivity inside you
For his outer scolding?

25168

Self-offering
Is the lightning-progress
Of a God-lover.

25169

If you are a genuine God-lover,
Then God will give you the capacity
Today to walk faster than the fastest,
Tomorrow to run faster than the fastest
And the following day to fly
Faster than the fastest.

25170

Alas,
Why is my gratitude-ecstasy
Fast asleep?

25171

Follow,
Follow sleeplessly,
Follow your Master’s
Beckoning hand!

25172

If we do not pray to God
For the purification of our thoughts,
Then our thoughts will remain
Dismal and depressing.

25173

If we can silence our mind completely,
Then God will give us the capacity
Completely
To run at lightning speed.

25174

Do not waste your time
In your mind-forest.
Spend all your time
In your heart-garden.

25175

Do not make a truce with your soul.
Ask your soul to take the lead
If happiness is what you want.

25176

First receive
And then assimilate
All your God-experiences
For your perfect perfection-life.

25177

Alas, the indulgence of my vital
Has covered the beauty and fragrance
Of my heart.

25178

Stop, stop the swiftness
Of your criticism-arrow
If you want to extinguish
All your earthly desire-fires!

25179

Finally God has commanded
My doubting mind
To surrender to my aspiring heart.

25180

Sooner or later,
Our desire-mind
Will give way
To our aspiration-heart.

25181

There should be at least
Some soulful seekers on earth
Who will daily wipe away
God’s Heart-Tears.

25182

Do not allow yourself to be haunted
By constant regret
That you are not doing well
In your spiritual life.
Be determined!
Go forward!
Go forward!

25183

O seeker, do not take any request
Of your Master lightly
If you want to make
The fastest progress.

25184

If we do not destroy
Our insecurity-ant,
Then it will eventually grow
Into a ferocious tiger.

25185

I pray
Through the beauty of tears.
I meditate
Through the fragrance of happiness.

25186

A self-giving soul
Is, indeed,
The radiance of Eternity
And Infinity.

25187

Alas, most of our inheritances
Are nothing but sad memories
Of the past.

25188

If we have the armour
Of a clear conscience,
Then fast, very fast we can run
In our spiritual life.

25189

Only a doubting mind
Enjoys the wild gossip
Of the street corner.

25190

A journey accompanied
By the mind’s doubt
Is full of danger.

25191

We are extremely unconscious.
Therefore, we do not see
That the God-realisation-stars
Are most compassionately
Beckoning us.

25192

Doubt, jealousy and pride:
These are, indeed,
The mind-sharks.

25193

My heart and I are praying to God
To bless us with the surges
Of will-power.

25194

Our heart-receivers most of the time
Are not in tune.
Therefore, we do not receive
The daily messages
From our Lord Supreme.

25195

The mind has no flowers.
It is all weeds.
But the heart has flowers,
And they regularly bloom
And blossom.

25196

I do not feed the ferocious tiger
In my mind,
But I feed the noble lion
In me.

25197

O cruel and selfish mind,
How do you expect an audience
To listen to you about God?

25198

A true seeker is he
Who keeps his heart’s sacrifice
Continuously burning.

25199

Just remember a prayerful moment,
A soulful moment
And a self-giving moment.
You will be able to walk again
Along the road to delight.

25200

My joy knows no bounds
When I trace my Lord’s Face
Inside my heart-garden.
