Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 164

16301

O Lord Supreme,

May we say the right thing,

May we do the right thing

And may we become the right thing.

The right thing for us to say:

“We love You, God.”

The right thing for us to do:

Serve God.

The right thing for us to become:

God’s perfect children.


16302

My loving heart

Does not know what to do

With my mind’s

Destructive anxiety-attacks.


16303

My mind’s hope-rainbow

Is the precursor

Of my heart’s promise-sunrise.


16304

I always keep

A purity-thought

At my mind-door

To protect my life.


16305

Open your mind-door.

Look!

Your opportunity-friend

Has come to help you

And fulfil you.


16306

The mind

That does not aspire

Cannot escape

Uncertainty-road’s

Dead end.


16307

When you are eager

To serve God,

God’s Omnipresence-Smile

Proudly blesses you.


16308

On earth,

God loves the peace-lovers

Most.

In Heaven,

God loves the satisfaction-distributors

Most.


16309

When we do something

With eagerness and enthusiasm,

We get a special Grace

From the Supreme

That tries to illumine or nullify

The wrong qualities in our lives.


16310

If you do not have

The breathless certainty of faith,

You will not be allowed

To be a passenger

In God’s Manifestation-Boat.


16311

From now on

I shall live and work

Only in

My affection-concern-flooded

Heart-room.


16312

May my mind

Be as beautiful

As the morning sunrise.

May my heart

Be as peaceful

As the evening sunset.


16313

God tells me

That He enjoys immensely

My unexpected arrival

In His Heart.


16314

My Lord,

I want only one thing

From You every day,

And that thing

Is my ego’s oblivion

Inside my heart’s

Aspiration-sunrise.


16315

O my Lord,

You have so many friends!

Do You not think it

A sheer waste of time

To want to make friends

With my worthless and useless mind?


16316

How can the Supreme

Fail to fulfil

The Peace-Dream of His own Heart

In His own creation

On earth?


16317

Long before your life

Is possessed by possessions,

Can you not sing

Renunciation-song

And dance renunciation-dance?


16318

Sleeplessly God’s Tears

Are falling on earth.

Why?

Because He sees clearly

That world-harmony

Is a far cry.


16319

He tries to steal

Compassion from Heaven.

He fails!

He tries to steal

Gratitude from earth.

He fails!


16320

When everything else fails,

Cry!

With your gratitude-heart-tears,

You are bound to succeed.


16321

Never worry about things

That you are unable to change.

Change your own way

Of looking at truth.

Look from a higher

And more encompassing

Life-tree branch.


16322

Make your compassion-heart

And dedication-life

Your divinely inspired trademarks.


16323

To make the fastest progress,

Enthusiasm must come first

In your life!


16324

If you do not open your mind

To new, uncharted horizons,

There will be a definite decline

In your aspiration-life.


16325

Your God-loving dreams

And your God-serving hopes

Will be anchored by God Himself

In His own Reality-World.


16326

Summon your soul-courage!

It will wrestle

Anxiety, doubt and impurity

Into submission.


16327

Do not wait until you have

A perfect consciousness!

It is always better

To serve God

And to do something good

For humanity

Immediately.


16328

Sympathise with others

In their mind-burden-pain

And you will also be able to share

In their heart-kite-joy.


16329

You will lose

Your friendship with God

If you think

That your version of truth

Is the only accurate

And perfect one.


16330

O my heart,

Always try to remain far above

The fruitless ignorance-dreams

Of the mind.

Never allow yourself

To be caught by them!


16331

Unwillingness

To do the right thing,

Unwillingness

To feel the right thing

And unwillingness

To become the right thing

Have destroyed

Humanity’s God-fulfilment-promise.


16332

Inspiration I need

To appreciate the beauty

Of earth.


Aspiration I need

To appreciate the duty

Of life.


Realisation I need

To appreciate the Divinity

Of God.


16333

Every day

My soul is working

Extremely hard

To liberate my aspiration-life.


16334

If you do not stand

Face-to-face

Against ignorance-night,

God may love you,

But He will never

Need you.


16335

Ego does not live alone.

It always lives with

Its dear friends:

Frustration and destruction.


16336

Alas,

When I look for

Expectation-fulfilment-fountain,

I see everywhere nothing but

Lifeless and useless rocks.


16337

It does not take much time

For a seeker to learn

That his doubtful mind

Is nothing other than

A frustration-carrier.


16338

God-believers are crucified

Only because God wants them

To be infinitely more glorified

Than they otherwise would be.


16339

Every day God wants us

To look for a remedy

To cure our mind’s

Unwillingness

And our body’s laziness.


16340

Do not give up!

God does not want you to be

A defeated hope-life.


16341

To free yourself

From earth-desires,

You need to sow aspiration-seeds

In your heart-garden.


16342

I shall conquer my twenty defects

Faster than you will conquer your one,

If you don’t have eagerness

And enthusiasm

In your spiritual life!


16343

If you serve the Supreme

In a low consciousness

Or out of fear,

How can you expect Him

To give you a passing mark?


16344

If you are

All the time absorbed

In your mind-satisfaction,

How can you ever think

Of God-manifestation?


16345

Today

My soul is determined

To terminate

My lifelong entanglement

With confusion-night.


16346

If your spiritual life

Is a passing fancy,

Your life’s

Perfection-fulfilment-promise

Will always remain a far cry.


16347

Each cheerful thought

Is a forward step

Towards your supreme Destination.


16348

If there is no faith,

There can be no hope.

If there is no hope,

There can be no promise.

If there is no promise

From earth,

Then there can be no smile

From Heaven.


16349

Man’s exaggerated preoccupation

With himself

Is ruining the entire world!


16350

My Lord,

Will there be any time

When You will be ready

To change Your Mind,

Since I am too weak

To change mine?


16351

O my mind,

Whenever I see you

Heavily drunk with doubt,

I do not know how and why

God’s Compassion-Light

Can flow in and through you.


16352

If you want to leave

The past behind,

You have to know

That this decision of yours

Has come from the blessingful Compassion

Of the Lord Supreme.


16353

If you maintain

Your outer excitement,

How will you receive

The inner enlightenment?


16354

Do not surrender your will

To your deplorable fate!

Surrender your will

Only to God’s all-loving,

All-protecting, all-illumining

And all-fulfilling Heart.


16355

The true believers in truth

And the true lovers of God

Can never fall

Into a serious dispute.


16356

Alas,

What we see in our inner life

And in our outer life

Is the same:

Mounting expectation-flames!


16357

My unconditional faith

Is by far the best custodian

Of God’s infinite Compassion.


16358

Your mind and vital

Are not allowing you to see

The immensity of your heart.


16359

One day

Your soul will put

Tremendous pressure

On your mind and vital,

So you will value your aspiring heart.

The sooner the better!


16360

Once you see the height and depth

Of your inner life,

You will be able to run

Faster than the fastest

Along Eternity’s Road.


16361

Even if you work mechanically,

Without enthusiasm,

The Supreme will be more pleased with you

Than with someone who works

With countless negative forces.


16362

The mind does not know

Where the heart is.

The heart does not know

What the mind wants.


16363

In our inner life of prayer

We want to love the Supreme.

In our outer life of action

We want to serve the Supreme

And be true members

Of the universal family.


16364

Alas,

Many older seekers feel

That they have one foot in the grave,

Or that they can enjoy

Retirement-relaxation.

Absolutely untrue!

God wishes all His children,

Young and old,

To have the same sleepless determination,

Enthusiasm and willingness

To serve Him.


16365

Continue, continue

With your oneness-sympathy,

Oneness-compassion

And oneness-love

For God’s manifestation!


16366

You may not have

Many undivine forces

Inside you,

But if you do not have enthusiasm

And eagerness

How can you make satisfactory progress?


16367

You and I and everybody

Have to be faithful

Only to one Being,

And that Being

Is the Lord Beloved Supreme

Inside our hearts.


16368

If you look

From the mountaintop of aspiration

At your many problems,

They will seem very small.


16369

You are very happy and proud

That you have climbed up

The aspiration-tree.

But still you must reach

The high, higher, highest branches!


16370

Why are you unhappy

While you are with your Master?

Because although your body is with him,

Your mind is somewhere else!


16371

You may not be able

To work for God

In a perfect consciousness.

But at least work for Him

With your imperfect consciousness!


16372

Many fail at times

In the life-examination.

But even among the failures,

Why must you be the worst?

You can be the very best!


16373

When your heart’s

Aspiration-flower

Smiles,

That is the time

God comes and claims you

As a choice instrument

Of His.


16374

You may be angry with God

For something He has asked you to do.

But why must you add

Other negative factors:

Haughtiness, disobedience and impurity?


16375

The embodiment of faithfulness

Is what we have to be

In the Heart

Of our Lord Beloved Supreme.


16376

Divine Grace will descend

On those who want to cultivate

Aspiration and dedication

At every second.


16377

Replace your mind’s fear

With your heart’s faith.

You will be able to zoom

Forward, upward, inward

All-where.


16378

This is the message

You are giving to me

And I am giving to you:

We must be faithful to God!


16379

I may escape

From my responsibilities

For the moment,

But how long can I continue

To escape?


16380

The day is always

Filled with negative forces,

But by using your enthusiasm,

You can conquer them.


16381

The higher you climb up

The God-realisation-tree,

The better your God-manifestation

On earth.


16382

If your spiritual life-roots

Are not strong,

Then you will not be able

To manifest God satisfactorily

In any part of the world.


16383

O stupid mind,

Why do you try

To delay the inevitable?

Can you not see that God

Is fast approaching

Your mind-jungle-thorns?


16384

God will never delay

Quenching your God-thirst,

If your God-thirst

Is breathless and desperate.


16385

What has happened to your inner life?

Over the years

Lethargy has devoured you,

And now you don’t want

To budge an inch.


16386

The seeker gives God

A special delight

When he asks God

For the gift of God-Vision.


16387

O seeker,

Use your familiarity-fragrance wisely.

If not, you are bound to lose

Your most precious wealth:

Devotion-light.


16388

To be happy,

You don’t have to be

Near your Master outwardly —

Just inwardly!


16389

No matter where they go,

People who have lots of complaints

Will never be happy.


16390

You may be a professional self-doubter,

But God the Lover will bless you

With His Compassion-Forgiveness-Power,

Plus help you to become

A true self-awakener.


16391

God and His Forgiveness-Heart

Are always ready to console me

For my failure-experiences.

God and His Satisfaction-Eye

Are always ready to extol

My heart’s progress-promise.


16392

When we do not aspire,

We fearfully see

That death is our breath-collector.

But when we aspire,

We clearly see

That death is actually

The supplier of a new life-breath.


16393

Unaspiring seekers

Do not want to be in the rear.

Aspiring seekers

Do not have any preference.

They know that their sole goal

Is to pray with sincerity

And meditate with intensity.


16394

We come to the spiritual life

Only for the Supreme.

But He will be happy

If we can also receive something

From our fellow seekers.


16395

You have to cultivate

Your own happiness.

Of course,

Your willingness, need

And eagerness to cultivate it

Come from the Supreme Himself.


16396

My soul’s blessingful suggestion to me:

What I need for my perfection-life is

A simplicity-mind,

A purity heart

And a surrender-life.


16397

Luckily the Supreme

Has some good children.

But they can become better

To inspire the rest of the world.


16398

You may be poorer than the poorest.

But by showing your heart-power

And bringing forward

Your heart’s wealth,

You can accomplish everything

For the Supreme.


16399

The seeker-farmer has to plough

And sow the aspiration-seeds.

Then only from Above

God’s Compassion-Rain will descend

To produce a rich harvest eventually.


16400

What is obedience

If not immediate progress?

What is progress

If not immediate satisfaction?

What is satisfaction

If not God-fulfilment

In God’s own Way?
