Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 249

24801

My Lord,

I can at most resist

Your Compassion-Eye,

But I shall never be able to resist

Your Forgiveness-Feet.


24802

If obedience

Is your life-boat,

Then in your life’s uncharted journey

You are bound to succeed.


24803

Alas, our expectation-key

Is apt to open

Only the wrong door.


24804

Today’s minute expectation

Can turn into tomorrow’s

Frustration-volcano.


24805

I can completely empty

My life’s dark problem-room

When the Name of God

Becomes the very breath of my heart.


24806

God tells me that I have become

A choice instrument of His

Precisely because

I have carpeted my entire being

With humility-grass.


24807

God can and will

Do the right thing for you

Only when your love for Him

Is pure and genuine.


24808

The mind craves attention,

The heart longs for reward.

Therefore, alas,

Neither the mind nor the heart is ready

To have unconditional love for God.


24809

How I wish I could always speak

To my Lord Supreme

Exactly the way my soul does:

In silence-whispers.


24810

We feel that God does not hear

Our cries,

But do we, even in our imagination,

Try to make our cries

Prayerful, soulful and self-giving?


24811

I ask my Lord

To come to me quickly.

My Lord asks me,

“Are you really ready

To receive Me?”


24812

If there is anybody,

Either in Heaven or on earth,

As furious with me as myself

For wasting so much of God’s Time

On earth,

Then that person is none other

Than my own soul!


24813

A purity-mind,

A devotion-heart

And a surrender-life

Must rule my very existence

At every moment.


24814

My Lord Supreme,

How I adore You!

Do You know why?

Because You transform

My helpless despair

Into most powerful and intense delight.


24815

What saves my life

At every moment?

Only one thing:

My heart’s gratitude-breath

To my Lord Supreme.


24816

If you love your Master

Unconditionally,

Then he becomes your heart’s

Emperor supreme.

But if you love him conditionally,

Then you can at any time

Turn him into a veritable beggar.


24817

When I tell God

That I love Him only,

Alas, do I really mean it?


24818

I ask God,

“My Lord, when You tell me

That You desperately need me,

Do You really mean it?”

My Lord tells me,

“I mean it, I mean it,

I shall always mean it, My child.”


24819

I ask my Lord Supreme,

“Do tell me

What is wrong with me.”

My Lord Supreme tells me,

“My child, only one thing:

You must love Me infinitely more

Than you love Me now.”


24820

“In God we trust.”

This is an American motto.

Does God trust us?

Poor God tells us

That He has not yet learnt

The art of distrust.


24821

Learn to look at yourself seriously.

Ask yourself,

“Do I really need God?”

Ask this question every day.


24822

Perfection will always long for

More perfection,

Abundant perfection

And infinite perfection.


24823

God-eagerness,

God-manifestation

And God-fulfilment:

Indeed, a supremely high trinity!


24824

My soul not only loves

My God-dreams,

But also shelters my God-dreams.


24825

Dream and dare,

Dare and dream

If you want to proceed fast

In your spiritual life.


24826

Do not expect anything spectacular

Either from God or from yourself.

Just give yourself to God

Happily and proudly.

The rest you must leave to God.


24827

Joy has failed to teach you.

Therefore, God has sent pain

To teach you.


24828

My Lord Supreme,

You have given me

A most difficult task:

You have asked me to count

All Your disappointments.


24829

My Lord Supreme is telling me

That He will enter into my heart

Only through my self-dedication-door.


24830

Be careful, O seeker,

Of your insecurity!

Today’s insecurity

Will most likely turn into

Absurd haughtiness.


24831

My Lord Supreme,

Do give me

The beauty of love divine

And do give me

The fragrance of devotion divine

So that I do not have to remove

My prayerful gaze

From Your Compassion-flooded Feet.


24832

The more I am sincere

With my spiritual life,

The more it is clear to me

That I need only one thing:

God’s ceaseless Compassion-Eye.


24833

Alas,

We do not believe

The undeniable fact

That our lives are full of

Divinity-manifestation-possibilities

And opportunities.


24834

God has made it a point

Every day

To take a new picture

Of my prayerful and tearful

Gratitude-heart.


24835

The beauty of my surrender

And the Power of God’s Will

Are fond of living inseparably.


24836

God blessingfully and proudly

Accepts us

As His choice instruments

When we turn all our thoughts

Into prayers.


24837

O humanity,

Do not give up!

God’s Patience

Has not yet given up.


24838

My Lord Supreme,

Do bless me

With an ever-expanding faith

To please You

With every breath of my heart.


24839

Only he who has surrendered,

And not he who says

That he is going to surrender,

Will be cradled

In God’s ever-loving Embrace.


24840

Your Lord Beloved Supreme

Is eagerly waiting for you.

Just step inside your heart-temple.


24841

God the Love has invited me

To see His Heart, to feel His Heart

And to become His Heart.


24842

You are looking

For God’s Throne.

Alas, you are looking

In the wrong place!

The right place is your own heart.


24843

My life-boat treasures

Many passengers,

But peace-passengers

It treasures the most.


24844

O seeker, can you not see

That you have lovingly and proudly kept

All-destroying doubt

As your beloved friend?


24845

Self-giving is, indeed,

An everlasting,

Self-transcending journey.


24846

The mind can doubt

Its own doubts,

But the heart always agrees

With its faith.


24847

If you are afraid

Of your failure-life,

Then this very failure-life

Will never allow you

To make any progress

In your spiritual life.


24848

Not what you think

Will make you ever happy,

But what you prayerfully

And soulfully give

Can and will make you happy.


24849

I am so grateful to my soul,

For it has come today

To excavate

All my heart’s old buried dreams.


24850

The human mind does not realise

That there are

Infinitely more important things

In life

Than just increasing life’s speed.


24851

Everything that my heart does

I enjoy immensely,

Specially when my heart

Prayerfully and soulfully weeps

For God.


24852

O my sunshine-hope-heart,

I sleeplessly and breathlessly

Depend upon you.


24853

When you aspire,

You realise that Heaven hears

All your heart-whispers.


24854

A sleeplessly self-offering heart

Will definitely have

The highest mastery

Over the unaspiring life.


24855

My Lord tells me

That my very existence on earth

Is worthy of His deepest Concern.


24856

A sleeplessly self-giving heart

Is, indeed, a God-lover

Of the first rank.


24857

A universal oneness-heart

Will always remain

A dire challenge

To modern science.


24858

The human mind has changed

Next to nothing

Over the course of centuries.


24859

Every morning

I enter into my heart-home

To pay my prayer-visit

To God’s Compassion-Eye

And His Forgiveness-Feet.


24860

The beauty of love

And the fragrance of surrender

See each other everywhere.


24861

Each snow-white prayer

Is, indeed,

A God-inspired messenger.


24862

I want my life

Every day

To be ruled

By my soul-emperor.


24863

My life is running

Towards God’s Feet.

God’s Eye is soaring

Towards my heart.


24864

During my deep meditation

I clearly hear the voice of my soul

Ringing melodiously with celestial love.


24865

My God-given faith

I sleeplessly treasure.

My man-given doubt

I vehemently abhor.


24866

The latest news

From God’s Universal Heart

Is this:

God’s Forgiveness-Feet

Will never leave me,

And God’s Compassion-Eye

Will always take care of me.


24867

May my future life

Be flooded with Divinity’s

Immortality-Dreams.


24868

When I live inside my heart-home,

I clearly see that my faith

Can run infinitely faster

Than my doubt

To carry me to my destination.


24869

A soulful smile

Is definitely a sign

Of love-devotion-surrender-progress.


24870

God tells me

That it is definitely possible

To free my mind

From the tangle of brooding doubts.


24871

A selfless life is, indeed,

A beautiful and powerful experience

Of God Himself

Inside the seeker.


24872

There is not a single time

When the heart-flute does not play

Sweetness-melodies.


24873

God gladly and proudly

Adds beauty and fragrance

To each service-moment

Of my life.


24874

Where is abiding security?

It is only

Inside our oneness-heart.


24875

If your life becomes

A torrential rain of eagerness

And intensity,

Then you are bound to become

A tree of God-Satisfaction-fruits.


24876

Every day when I meditate,

God blesses me

With His own Heart-Silence-Whispers.


24877

To be an unaspiring mind

Is the beginning

Of self-destruction.


24878

The disobedience of your darkness-mind

Will disappear

When inside your heart

You discover your God-devotion-magnet.


24879

When we obey God’s Call,

God blessingfully invites us

To come

To His Heart-Kingdom.


24880

My small heart

Is nothing but frustration

And exasperation.

My big heart

Is nothing but compassion

And illumination.


24881

If we can adorn

Our sacred heart-shrine

With love, devotion and surrender,

Then we shall never be blinded

By the desire-world.


24882

What is determination?

Determination is something

That conquers the undivine in us

For the full manifestation

Of the divine in us.


24883

Oneness is ultimately

The full victory

Of our aspiration-heart

And dedication-life.


24884

Our throbbing

Aspiration-heartbeats

Please God infinitely more

Than we can ever imagine.


24885

The mind never runs out of

Doubt-poison.

The heart never runs out of

Faith-nectar.


24886

Our love of God

Chases the unwillingness-thief

From our mind.


24887

Surrender, surrender to God’s Will

Happily and proudly!

Lo, all your frustration-tears

Have completely disappeared.


24888

Each seeker has to be armed

With indomitable determination.

If not, he may sink

Into utter despair

Along the spirituality-road.


24889

The secret of sleepless aspiration

Lies in singing the songs

Of Heavenly glory.


24890

It is not my self-confidence

But my God-reliance

That feeds my heart

With Infinity’s Joy.


24891

Finally,

My ignorance-vital-volcano

Has surrendered

To my wisdom-heart-garden.


24892

Each good thought of my mind

Immediately adds

To my perfection-qualities list.


24893

Every day I pray to God

To help me see

The beauty and divinity

Of my silence-soul.


24894

What is obedience,

If not the first requisite

Of God-aspiration, God-realisation

And God-manifestation?


24895

I can cheer up my sad heart.

But alas,

I can never tame my mad mind.


24896

Every day my Lord is eager

To help me grow

Aspiration-heart-wings,

But alas, I am never ready.


24897

If we do not possess

The full measure of obedience-light,

Then we shall never be able

To come out of ignorance-night.


24898

A God-server

Has to be a God-lover.

He cannot be otherwise!


24899

God tells me

If I want to see His Compassion-Eye,

Then I must sweep away

My mind’s confusion-dust.


24900

A constantly cheerful self-giver

To God’s Will

Is the sweetest God-singer.
