Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 166

16501

My heart’s gratitude-rainbow
Increases its beauty, purity
And divinity every morning
Through God’s Compassion-Look
And Compassion-Touch.

16502

Now that
The depression-suppression-days
Are over,
Willingness and enthusiasm
Are carrying my life
To my destined goal.

16503

Just a little sympathy
From the heart
Is an antidote
To many of our mental pains.

16504

Seek advice every day
From your wise friend:
Faith.
To your great surprise
And great joy,
You will breathe a great sigh
Of mind-relief.

16505

You will not be able to arrive
At the mountaintop-aspiration-height
If you do not intensify
Your heart’s inner cries.

16506

Turn away from
The material greed-life.
Focus on
Your heart’s transcendental Goal.

16507

Just change your thinking!
Lo,
The world is more than eager
To satisfy you
In your own way.

16508

If you want
To be awakened inwardly,
Then God will eventually
Turn you into a hero-warrior.

16509

You do not
Have to turn your mind
To the universal mystery.
Just turn your heart
To your self-discovery.

16510

At every moment
Employ your will-power.
You can easily make
A permanent change
To have a better life.

16511

God will grant you
The decision-making capacity
If you can show Him your heart’s
Aspiration-climbing quality.

16512

Be soulful, be cheerful
And always say “Yes”
To your heart’s inner life.
Then yours will be
The joy unparalleled.

16513

Start pleasing God
In God’s own Way
Immediately.
Tomorrow will be
Undoubtedly and mercilessly
Too late!

16514

If you do not offer
Your will to God’s Will,
Then the flower
Of your heart-beauty
Is bound to wither.

16515

You can always
Rise to the occasion!
You certainly can,
If you allow your heart
To take enormous
Progress-strides.

16516

You must record your heart’s
Sweetness-night-dreams
And share them cheerfully
With your willingness-mind.

16517

You may take
Your material success
Carelessly.
But you must take
Your spiritual progress
Most seriously.

16518

What you need is stability
In your mind.
Otherwise
Your wild restlessness-mind
Will capsize your heart’s
Aspiration-boat.

16519

When your body needs rest,
Be wise.
Make your body feel
That it is your heart’s
Most deserving guest.

16520

Your heart’s aspiration-roadblocks
Will be cleared
Only when you can cry like a child
Breathlessly
For God’s Compassion-Eye-Guidance.

16521

Do not allow
Thought-vagabonds
To occupy
Your mind-corridor.

16522

Say good-bye
To your ego-mind.
Say good-bye
To your unwillingness-heart.
Say good-bye
To your lethargy-life.

16523

Where did I leave my ego?
I left my ego
Inside the cave
Of my despair.

16524

Each aspiration-flower-petal
Reminds us
Of God’s Oneness-Beauty
In His Multiplicity-Divinity.

16525

Aspiration, dedication, surrender
Every day
Summon my life,
And my life
Happily goes to them.

16526

O my mind,
Do not allow
Yesterday’s insecurity,
Doubt and inferiority
To hover around you.

16527

No human being on earth
Can ever massacre
Your genuine soul-bond faith,
For this faith is the product
Of God’s own Divinity
Inside your heart.

16528

O my mind,
You are not meant to be
Entertained every day
By ego’s supremacy-circus.

16529

You are an unparalleled fool!
You are compelling
Your God-hunger-aspiration-heart to fast
By casting aspersions on other seekers.

16530

My mind-room must invite
God’s Compassion-Eye
And Forgiveness-Feet.
God will definitely accept
The invitation of my mind-room.

16531

Alas!
Why and how can doubt
Arise, take birth, prosper
And become victorious
Inside the human mind-temple?

16532

O my heart, O my soul,
O my God,
May my life’s
Transformation-dream
Grow into reality!

16533

The life of peace
Has the capacity,
Is the capacity,
To untangle all human anxiety,
Worry and insecurity.

16534

Nobody is destined
To be perpetually wedded
To doubt and suspicion.
Indeed, it is a matter
Of personal choice:
Doubt or faith!

16535

Sweetness-soul,
Humility-life
And perfection-smile
Are always found together.

16536

O my resentment-mind,
Do you not see
That you are taking me away
Far, farther, farthest
From my enlightenment-soul?

16537

Lethargy-body
And unwillingness-mind
Die to live together
Inside the same
Dark ignorance-room.

16538

Doubt
Makes your mind dark.
Fear
Makes your heart dark.
Insecurity
Makes your life dark.

16539

The blossoms
Of my aspiration-heart
Every day are fondled
By the Compassion-Eye
And Satisfaction-Hands
Of the Supreme Lord.

16540

Alas,
Why do I allow ignorance
To come again and again
To disturb my mind’s
Peace-silence-privacy?

16541

If you want to make
Considerable progress
And very fast progress
In your spiritual life,
Then every morning
Turn your attachment-mind
Into detachment-sword.

16542

You want to know
How freely and quickly
Insecurity-mind runs?
It runs faster than
Your fastest imagination-flight!

16543

The golden light
Of my soul-divinity’s silence
Creates a new life
For me to share
With the world at large.

16544

Your heart’s silence-ecstasy
Every day is devoured
By the Lord Supreme Himself.

16545

You have many good qualities
You can cherish.
But I cherish at every moment
Your heart’s ever-blossoming purity.

16546

A self-giving life,
A willingness-mind
And a purity-heart
Know no sunset.

16547

I always turn a deaf ear
To my beggar-expectation-cries
And the world’s
Loud criticism-laughter.

16548

My heart’s rainbow-silence
Lovingly illumines
My darkness-mind’s unwillingness.

16549

If you are your heart’s
Insincere gratitude,
Then how do you expect
Your life to be
God’s Satisfaction-Plenitude?

16550

Each human being
Has a free and easy access
To his own heart’s
Purity-light and divinity-delight.

16551

Once you accept
The spiritual life,
Your mind’s uncertainties
You must shatter
And place the broken pieces
At the Feet of your Lord Supreme.

16552

Play, play, play!
You are supposed to play
Only with your heart’s
Mounting sacred flames.

16553

Insecurity, insincerity
And impurity:
These three thieves
Hide inside your mind.
Catch them red-handed
With your soul’s
All-seeing light.

16554

Your God-aspiration-heart
And your God-manifestation-life
Must be stronger than the strongest
And larger than the largest.

16555

Is there any defect,
Is there any weakness,
Is there any imperfection
That God’s Forgiveness-Hand
Cannot easily cover
If He wants it to?

16556

Even the idea
Of God-manifestation
Sincerely, soulfully
And devotedly yields
Tremendous inner power.

16557

Alas, alas!
He has not the slightest idea
That his mind’s enthusiasm-light
Has again gone out
Completely.

16558

When there is willingness
Inside your heart,
Inside your mind
And inside your very being,
Then God sends you
A golden inner chariot
For your use.

16559

Like your heart,
Your mind too
Can have rainbow-joy.
If you knock at God’s
Compassion-Heart-Door,
He will come to the fore
And fulfil your longing divine.

16560

If you have
An understanding mind,
And if you have
A self-giving heart,
Then you become
A choice instrument of God,
And of nobody else.

16561

The fear of the mind
Silences
The joy and satisfaction
Of the heart,
Alas!

16562

This moment
The mind’s unwillingness,
Next moment
The heart’s fear,
And next moment
The supremacy of doubt.
Alas,
I do not know
How I can free myself
From these three demons!

16563

If you are the possessor
Of a detachment-mind,
Then God’s Satisfaction-Heart
God will gladly give you
To enjoy.

16564

Insecurity-prison
Can easily
Your mind destroy.
Confidence-palace
Easily
Your heart can own.

16565

Each humility-prayer
From the heart
Is God’s Satisfaction-Eye
And Satisfaction-Heart.

16566

O ignorance,
Can you not see
That it is high time
For you to leave me
For good
And for me to say
Farewell to you
Compassionately and forgivingly?

16567

O aspiration-bird
Of my heart,
O dedication-wings
Of my life,
Come with me and fly with me
To God’s own Country,
Inundated with infinite Delight!

16568

Alas,
Is there any day
When there is a single human being
Who does not hide
His mind’s unwillingness
To surrender to light?

16569

If you just scorn lethargy,
You will not be successful
In mastering lethargy.
You have to invoke ecstasy
To come to the fore
From your inner life.
Then your ecstasy will save you
From lethargy’s ruthless attacks.

16570

Alas, alas!
Attachment-ulcer is spreading fast
Throughout the length and breadth
Of the world.

16571

A little smile
Is a solid step
Towards an abiding
Happiness-heart.

16572

A willingness-mind,
A willingness-heart,
A willingness-life:
These are the sacred inheritances
I have received
From my Lord Supreme.

16573

Unity in diversity:
This is God’s supreme Secret
In His Cosmic Game.

16574

If you have
A tremendous cry for God
And a tremendous Smile from God,
Then you are undoubtedly
Perfect.

16575

Are you courageous?
Then prove it to me
With your unparalleled
Happiness.

16576

Do not imitate others.
It is not rewarding.
Do not intimidate others.
It is not rewarding.
Just start serving others
Immediately.
Indeed, this is immensely
Rewarding.

16577

If you can go beyond
The ego-competition,
Then you deserve to inherit
God’s infinite inner Wealth.

16578

Try to become
The vision-eye of a seer.
You will see
That this world of ours
Is not only meaningful and purposeful,
But also fruitful.

16579

O my mind,
Can you not see that
My heart is happy,
Unlike you?
My heart is happy
Because it has established
Its kinship with my soul-light.
O my unhappy mind,
Try, try to do the same!
You will, without fail,
Succeed.

16580

It is you who have capsized
Your life’s golden boat
By starving
Your sleepless heart-cries.

16581

If you are brave,
Then impeach your mind.
If you are braver,
Then tame your mind.
If you are the bravest,
Then transform your mind
Totally.

16582

To succeed in any field,
Our enthusiasm-eyes must sparkle
And our enthusiasm-hearts
Must dance.

16583

Belief is a miracle-power.
This power we get
When we go far beyond
The domain of the doubting mind.

16584

A truth-seeker tells me
That truth is great.
A God-lover tells me
That God is perfect.

16585

God has no time
To listen to my mind’s
Eloquence-prayers,
But He has ample time
To listen to my heart’s
Simplicity-prayers.

16586

O my poor mind,
Do tell me,
What more can I do
Than sympathise with
Your troublesome thoughts?

16587

God always gives
The highest marks to the heart
Whenever the heart
Sits for any examination
With the rest of the members
Of the life-family.

16588

It is my mind
And not my heart
That is afraid of walking
Along the road
Of my life’s transformation.

16589

When your foundation
Is humility-power,
Your life-edifice
Can defy measurement.

16590

God does not need to enter
Into your mind’s ignorance-abyss
As long as you and your heart
Send God an invitation
To come and do the needful
For you.

16591

O my heart,
Do not delay!
Start immediately climbing up
Once again
Your aspiration-mountain-pinnacle.

16592

A new definition of peace:
Man’s conscious
God-hunger-cry.

16593

A new definition
Of an unconditionally surrendered man:
Another God.

16594

A new definition
Of perfect perfection:
A progress-escalator.

16595

My heart’s aspiration-flower
Takes me to God.
My life’s dedication-fragrance
Brings God to me.

16596

My mind likes to be
An instant God-winner.
My heart likes to be
An instant God-lover.
My life likes to be
An instant God-server.
And I like to be
An instant God-dreamer.

16597

My Lord says to me:
“All right, My child,
Take your time,
But you must not forget to come
To My Compassion-flooded Abode.
I shall be waiting for you
Blessingfully and unconditionally.”

16598

I have prayerfully connected
My life’s dedication-river
To my Lord’s
Compassion-Eye-Sea.

16599

O my mind,
Pray to God
For His Forgiveness-Light,
Especially now,
Since you have fallen from
His lofty Compassion-Height.

16600

Willingness
Is the first step.
Enthusiasm
Is the second step.
Determination
Is the third step.
Surrender
Is the last step,
Illumining and fulfilling.
