Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 236

23501

It is not enough to know

That God is very powerful.

You also have to feel

That He really loves you.


23502

You decide:

You can go far away from God,

Or you can take every opportunity

To be absolutely dearest and closest

To God's Heart, to God's Soul,

To God's Life, to God's Vision

And to God's Mission.


23503

You may think

You are sincerely doing your best

To expand your heart,

But you can do even more:

You can make room for others

Inside your oneness-heart.


23504

If it is difficult for us to identify

With the good qualities of others,

It will be difficult for us to value

Those same good qualities

In ourselves.


23505

If you feel you are quite perfect,

Then become more perfect

By forgiving others

Instead of speaking ill of them.


23506

If you think you are a better person

Than somebody else,

Then become infinitely better

By proving that you can establish

Divine harmony with everyone.


23507

Jealousy is not going to leave your life

Unless and until you have established

Your real, permanent oneness

With God the creation.


23508

If you listen to your Lord Supreme

Cheerfully at every second,

You can have no inner fear,

Doubt or jealousy.


23509

When His children

Are praying and meditating

And singing His Adoration-Songs,

God the Father gets boundless Joy

And boundless Satisfaction.


23510

If you have

Sleeplessly mounting aspiration,

You will not and cannot do anything

To displease your Beloved Supreme.


23511

The supreme Dream

That God is cherishing

Inside each of us

Must be transformed

Into a living reality.


23512

For your nature's transformation

Only one thing is needed:

Your cheerful, prayerful, soulful,

Ready, anxious and eager obedience

To the Will of the Supreme.


23513

God wants you to be loyal to Him

To the end, very end,

In your life of aspiration

And your life of dedication.


23514

Happiness

Is what you want from God.

Happiness

Is what God wants from you.

This happiness depends

On your constant oneness

With the Will of the Supreme.


23515

Our Lord Beloved Supreme

Does not actually punish us.

With His Heart's infinite Love,

He tries in every way to illumine us

So that we can become

His most perfect instruments.


23516

Be happy, divinely happy.

In your divine happiness

Is your unimaginable progress.


23517

Your so-called greatness

God does not need.

What God needs is your goodness:

Your goodness-heart

And your goodness-life.


23518

Remember, just remember

Your own divinity-manifestations:

In how many countless ways

You have served the Supreme,

Loved the Supreme

And fulfilled the Supreme.

These are your true divine possessions.


23519

Two wings of our soul-bird:

Hope and promise.

With our hope, we walk, march, run

And fly towards our destination.

With our promise, we bring the destination

Unmistakably towards us.


23520

Each soulful song I sing

Is a gratitude-flower

From my heart

To my Beloved Lord Supreme.


23521

He who continues to disobey

His Lord Beloved Supreme

Slowly and steadily digs a big hole

In his spiritual life.


23522

O unpardonable, insincere seekers,

Can you not see that your ugliness-life

Is revealed and manifested

On your faces?


23523

If you have an iota of sincerity

In your mind

And an iota of purity

In your heart,

You can march forward,

Fly upward and dive inward.


23524

To you the spiritual life

May seem boring, boring, boring.

But to me the spiritual life

Will always be crying, crying, crying

For God

And soaring, soaring, soaring

To God.


23525

If you can feel that you are

A seven-year-old child,

Filled with enthusiasm, readiness,

Willingness and eagerness,

The spiritual life will never fail you.


23526

Inspiration, aspiration and dedication

Are three branches of one tree,

And that tree is called the life-tree.

The life-tree has also three more branches:

Love, devotion and surrender.


23527

God suffers in your hands

Because He feels

That you do not care for Him.

You suffer in God's Hands

Because you think

That He is an autocrat.


23528

If you are not for your Lord Supreme

One hundred per cent,

Then you cannot claim Him

As your spiritual Father,

But at most as an acquaintance.


If you are one hundred per cent

For your Absolute Lord Supreme,

Then you are His all,

And He is your All.


23529

Truth-seekers and God-lovers

Who obey God unconditionally

Deserve His Heart of Pride

Along with His Heart of Gratitude.


23530

If we use each day properly,

We can fulfil God and fulfil ourselves.

If we misuse and destroy our life,

Then earth will not care for our existence,

And Heaven will not care for our arrival.


23531

With utmost Affection, Compassion,

Fondness and Willingness,

God is prepared to carry you

On the longest road:

The birthless and deathless perfection-road.


23532

The Supreme owns only those

Who are with Him constantly,

Who are in Him constantly

And who are for Him constantly.


23533

You are bound

To climb upward immediately

High, higher, highest

If your heart's cry is sincere, simple,

Pure and sleeplessly self-giving.


23534

The more soulfully and prayerfully

You can sing divinity-songs,

The sweeter you will feel

Your own heartbeat

And your own life-breath.


23535

God's choice Hour

And man's choice hour

Are never the same,

For God's choice Hour

Will always be ahead,

Far ahead.


23536

God's Vision-Eye

And God's Compassion-Eye

Are constantly feeding us,

Nourishing us and inspiring us

To wake up.


23537

We fear that God will come

Without informing us,

But God need not inform us.

It is we who have to keep

Our willingness and eagerness

Always ready for His Arrival.


23538

My heart of love has become

The Creator's beaming Smiles

And the creation's streaming tears.


23539

You tell me that

God can be seen,

God can be felt

And God can be realised

And manifested.

I want to follow

In your success-footsteps.


23540

O my mind,

Never, never betray

My heart's inner voice,

Which is my Eternity's polestar-friend.


23541

God-creation is our heart's

Only true gospel.

Self-destruction is our mind's

Only true gospel.


23542

Simplicity has the master key

To open sublimity's room

And reality's safe.


23543

When I pray to God

With severe austerity,

God asks me instead

To play with His creation self-givingly.

He says that if I can play self-givingly

With His creation,

I shall please Him infinitely more.


23544

Careless, we play

In our mind's obscurity.

Sleepless and selfless, we sing

In our heart's profundity.


23545

If you do not bury

Your dead disappointments,

Who can and who will

Bury them for you?

Bury all your disappointments

Here and now!

Then run towards the effulgence

Of your soul's light and delight!


23546

O my mind,

You house the threat

Of nuclear annihilation.

But my heart,

Which is all aspiration-illumination,

Will, without fail,

Conquer you.


23547

The wonders of the outer world:

A sincerity-mind

And a sincerity-life.

The wonders of the inner world:

A purity-heart

And a purity-life.


23548

My prayerful mind,

My soulful heart

And my self-giving life

Are the three most significant boons

That I have received

From my Lord Beloved Supreme.


23549

If you want to manifest God's Will,

Then you must brave

The world's wild criticism-barrages.


23550

Each breath can be pure

If it is placed at the Feet

Of the Absolute Lord Supreme.


23551

All sincere, self-giving

Aspiration-attempts

Are bound to succeed

Either in the near future

Or in the distant future.


23552

A man of conscious, constant

And unconditional surrender

To God's Will

Is indeed a living miracle.


23553

To please God

You must renew and fulfil

Your old promises.

Only then will you be entitled

To make higher promises.


23554

Whenever I become a victim

To insecurity,

I give my Lord Supreme

A migraine headache.


23555

Man's mind is the story

Of separation-destruction.

Man's heart is the song

Of oneness-illumination.


23556

What I need

Is an ancient heart of purity

And a modern life of activity.


23557

God considers it a great joke

When my mind challenges my heart

To please God

More than my mind can please Him.


23558

God Himself is shocked to see

That His world-saving Patience

Is running short.


23559

My Lord,

All my heart's tears

I am ready to barter

For Your one fleeting Smile.


23560

Whenever I live in the aspiration-heart,

I clearly see and feel

That my Lord's Love is my All.


23561

My heart is telling me

That I can easily find roses

Where my critics find only thorns.


23562

I am so happy that God's Will

To fulfil me in His own Way

Is still very much alive.


23563

When we dedicate ourselves completely

To the Will of God,

We no longer remain infatuated

With this falsehood-temptation-world.


23564

True, outer failure may not be sweet,

But my God-surrender

Is sweet, sweeter, sweetest.


23565

What is human pride, after all?

It is something that has

A very fragile foundation.


23566

Every morning

I pray to my Lord Supreme

To bless me with gratitude

In plenitude

So that I can become happiness

Within and without.


23567

Once you have mastery

Over your animal qualities,

Your God-manifestation

And God-satisfaction-dreams

Will be fulfilled.


23568

How can God be pleased with you

And proud of you

If you are not specialised

In self-transcendence?


23569

To make a dream come true,

Do not do anything

To displease God.


23570

When God sees my mind,

He laughs and laughs

Until He is ready to cry.


23571

Nothing could please God more

Than my conscious withdrawal

From world-criticism-life.


23572

When your God-appointment-hour

Arrives,

Pray to God to fulfil

All your God-satisfaction-dreams.


23573

O my mind,

You cleverly fool yourself,

But you can never fool

God's all-seeing Eye.


23574

If your devotion to God is genuine,

Then God Himself will be responsible

For all your activities.


23575

If you do not have

A divine tenacity of purpose,

Then you can never fulfil God

In His own Way.


23576

May my heart's aspiration-cry

Belong to the heart

Of all humanity.


23577

We do not have to be

Confronted by our fate

If we pray to God

To make His Will our will.


23578

My Lord Supreme,

Do make my heart

A heart of conscious surrender

To Your Will,

So that I can enjoy

Your Nectar-Compassion-Flood.


23579

When my heart has gratitude

In boundless measure,

I need nothing more to please God.


23580

Every day you must try

To increase your love for God.

Otherwise your life may still

Be dashed upon the rocks

Of self-doubt.


23581

Those who live in the mind-forest

Make a foolish mockery

Of God's Peace-Dream-manifestation

On earth.


23582

When I allow doubt to guide me,

It invariably leads me

To a land of nowhere.


23583

My Lord Supreme,

May my aspiration-heart

Ascend and ascend

Towards the unknowable heights

Of God-intoxicated Vision.


23584

If I have a God-pleasing life,

Then God will take me far

Beyond the boundaries

Of Infinity and Eternity.


23585

May my spontaneous love of God

Transform everything and everyone

That comes to oppose me.


23586

God definitely wants me to remain

Here on earth to serve Him,

Instead of flying back

To my soul's kingdom.


23587

O my doubting mind,

Do not dare to reappear

In the guise of an advising friend!


23588

My Lord tells me

That nothing can be more illumining

And more fulfilling

Than my heart's soulfulness-tears.


23589

My aspiration-heart

And my dedication-life

Feed only

On God's Compassion-Smile.


23590

Not my mind's new and false

Truth-invention,

But my heart's old and true

Truth-discovery

Is the unparalleled road

To my God-destination.


23591

Like a child I must cry

To express my gratitude

Through my soulful smile.


23592

O my God-searching mind,

Go forward, go forward.

Do not allow your ancient fears

To haunt you.


23593

May my heart's hope

And my life's promise

Remain always inseparable

To please my Lord in His own Way.


23594

God the Fulfilment

And God the Satisfaction

Are within your heart's

Aspiration-reach.


23595

O my mind,

Your desire to eclipse

My heart's goodness

God will never be able

To satisfy.


23596

My mind the prison

And my heart the palace

Every day, without fail, invite me.

Alas, indecision is my name.


23597

I want to live

In a progress-worshipping era

And not in a success-demanding era.


23598

Each time I offer my gratitude-heart

To my Lord Supreme,

I am blessed with a deeper and richer

State of existence.


23599

When God wants to go on vacation,

He invites only my self-giving heart

To accompany Him.


23600

To embrace the whole world

In its totality,

I must develop the quality

Of infinite adaptability.
