Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 253

25201

O my Lord Supreme,

Do bless me at every moment

So that I can walk through

The Golden Gates

Of Your Will.


25202

The daily newness of my heart

Is enabling me to run fast —

Faster than the fastest —

To my goal.


25203

Silently, softly, sweetly

My soul speaks

To my heart, mind, vital and body.


25204

Yours will be a tremendous

Success and progress

If you are devoted to all

The rules and regulations.


25205

If the mind

Gets malicious pleasure

In disobedience,

This mind will be worse

Than a devil.


25206

God-discovery

Will not remain far

If you can leave

Your aspiration-heart-door

Wide open.


25207

You have to explore the unknown

If you want to get blessings

From the Unknowable.


25208

World-transformation is teamwork.

Your body, vital, mind, heart and soul

Must work together.


25209

Ask not why there is nobody

At God's Palace Gate.

Ask why you are

Not there yourself!


25210

The austerity of the mind

Does not last.

It again goes back

To doubt-indulgence-life.


25211

If you have abundant

Faith in God,

Do you not think that

God will have at least the same in you,

If not infinitely more?


25212

There are seekers

Who extol God's Beauty, God's Power

And God's Light.

I only extol God's Forgiveness.


25213

Whether rightly or wrongly,

Each generation maintains the right

To define God in its own way.


25214

The outer enemies we may confront

Only once.

But the inner enemies —

Doubt, suspicion and disobedience —

We confront every day.


25215

Do not blame God

If you fail by yourself.

God has asked you so many times

Not to toil alone and unassisted.


25216

If your heart

Is empty of intensity,

Then how will you ever

Grow receptivity?


25217

Is there any problem

That is not heavy and oppressive

In our life?

Is there any problem that is not?


25218

A seeker is he

Who basks

In the Compassion-Sunshine

Of the Lord Supreme.


25219

Spirituality does not relax,

Does not perplex.

Spirituality only injects

Divinity

Into our aspiration-heart.


25220

Countless prayer-cries

And countless meditation-smiles

We need

To realise God.


25221

Our surrender-heart

And surrender-life

Will always succeed

In our inner life and outer life as well.


25222

There are a few mind-diseases

Incurable.

Needless to say,

Disobedience tops the list!


25223

The eventual extinction

Of ignorance-night

Is not our mental hallucination.

It is a God-Promise-Announcement.


25224

I have once more

Started studying

In my childhood eagerness-school.


25225

Why waste your time

Repairing your old aspiration-train,

Once you become the possessor

Of a new aspiration-train?


25226

My Lord,

You are so kind to me.

You have allowed my heart

To speak for me.


25227

To smile soulfully and unreservedly

Is a momentous success-jump

In the inner world.


25228

God does not use His Mind

To understand our prayers.

He uses His Heart

To feel our prayers.


25229

Your heart has to be

As clear as daylight.

Your mind has to be

As plain as water.

Then God will not be able

To hide from you.


25230

Come right out and say

That God's Compassion

Is for you

And your dedication

Is only to God.


25231

Everything has to obey

The inevitable.

Again, everything can be transformed

If the Touch of God is available.


25232

You just want to put

Powerful pressure on your doubt.

That is not enough!

It has to surrender to you

Totally and unconditionally.


25233

Never keep

Your appointments

With unaspiring thoughts.


25234

"My Lord,

Give me what I need

And not what I want."

This prayer is not just ordinary,

But extraordinary!


25235

Do not use

Your aspiration-elevator

Alone.

Take others with you,

If you want to succeed

Most convincingly.


25236

When will your life

Be in aspiration-readiness

And dedication-readiness,

O when?


25237

Discard your brooding heaviness-mind

And life-darkening vital.

Lo and behold,

Divinity's victory will be all yours!


25238

Your slightest negligence

Will indefinitely delay

God's God-manifestation

On earth.


25239

Finally God has revoked

All the privileges that He gave

To my suppressive mind

And oppressive vital.


25240

Surrender to God's Will

Is the beginning

Of God's Dream-manifestation

On earth.


25241

I do not want to be a subscriber

To God's Light and God's Delight.

I just want to be a subscriber

To God's Compassion-Eye.


25242

Every time we come into the world,

We get tremendous pleasure in saying

We live in an age of transition.


25243

There is only one way

To sit at God's Feet,

And that way is to offer

Your heart's streaming tears

And your soul's beaming smiles

To God.


25244

The determination to try

Again and again

Is the beginning

Of our God-satisfaction.


25245

Do not ponder your misfortunes.

Go forward!

Life is not a risky business.

Life is a God-satisfaction-promise.


25246

God does not ask us to make

A life-risking commitment.

He asks us to make

A God-life-manifestation-commitment.


25247

If you are fearful

Of losing

God's Cosmic Game,

Then God-realisation

Will always be a far cry.

Therefore,

Be brave, be brave, be brave!


25248

There is no such thing

As ordinary prayer.

All prayers are special

In their own right.


25249

My mind's tardiness

Will never have time

To meet with the readiness

Of God's Heart.


25250

Come, come, my Lord Supreme,

To wake me

With Your Thunder-Feet

From the age-old ignorance-sleep!


25251

There are many things

That the mind needs.

The most important thing

The mind needs

Is the beauty of purity-blossoms.


25252

The God-Hour

Means the smile

Of infinite Power.


25253

If you do not feed your hope

Every day

With your aspiration-heart,

Then how can you succeed

In your life?


25254

What is hesitation,

If not

An opportunity-squanderer-mind?


25255

What is indifference,

If not the indulgence

Of self-confinement?


25256

When our mind is captured

By feeble facts,

We do not allow our mind

To sing and dance

With the beauty and power

Of realities.


25257

O where is our peace?

It is all imprisoned

By our doubting mind!


25258

I do not need

The God of distant worlds.

I do not need

The God of the past.

I need the God

Who lives here in the breath of now.


25259

Life is fruitless,

Life is useless

When God-service is missing.


25260

The mind-ship does not realise

That quite often it is travelling

Inside doubt-jealousy-suspicion-waters.


25261

Devotion is not

An insignificant thing.

It is infinitely more valuable

Than you can ever imagine.


25262

The more I see the rapidity

Of the machine-world,

The more I see futility

Dancing all around us.


25263

It is so easy for doubt

To come to us

Under the garb

Of implicit frankness.


25264

When my heart sings,

It is so soul-stirring

That the mind can never

Comprehend.


25265

The joy

A self-giving heart embodies

Can never be matched.


25266

We are born on earth

To prove that every day

A new God

With a new Promise

Takes birth in each human heart.


25267

If the heart's belief

Does not become the life's action,

Then that belief is hardly better

Than disbelief.


25268

What is happiness,

If not something

That is mixed with unseen pain?


25269

When I do not allow my mind

To govern me,

Then my heart gets a free access

To God's Will.


25270

As the mind's discoveries

Have no end,

Even so, the heart's inventions

Will never end.


25271

God tells my mind

That if it agrees to take from God

As much as possible,

Then He will give everything

As soon as possible.


25272

Let us once and for all

Be frank with ourselves.

Do we have an irresistible urge

To please God the Expectation,

Or do we have an irresistible urge

To feed our own countless expectations?


25273

God has been playing

His Compassion-Game

For a great many years.

He has now decided

To play a new Game:

Justice-Height.


25274

Alas, humanity's ingratitude

Is deeper

Than the bottomless ocean!


25275

Alas, our wild vital

Is overpowering us

Like a ferocious tiger

Devouring its prey.


25276

Alas, do you not see

That your doubting mind

Has arrested your inner progress-smiles?


25277

Our frustration says

What we cannot.

God's Compassion says

What we can.


25278

The mind has

Its monkey-tricks.

The heart has

Its deer-speed.


25279

Most of us do not love God

With our aspiration-heart.

We just revere Him

With our mind

At a safe distance.


25280

The heart-lover can embrace us

Only when we realise

That the mind is a constant deceiver.


25281

Everything that is beautiful

And fruitful

Grows on our life's humility-tree.


25282

A lion-hearted

God-fulfilment-determination

Is all that he needs.


25283

A purity-heart is, indeed,

A straight path

To God's Satisfaction-Smile.


25284

The final and decisive battle is over

Inside my mind.

From now on I shall be

Only for God.


25285

I do not need

A master magician-mind.

I need a singer-musician-heart.


25286

To have a simplicity-life

And a sincerity-mind

Is, indeed, a decisive victory

In our spiritual life.


25287

Everything that God has and is

Is definitely approachable

And usable.


25288

If you have a heart

That is not marred by flaws,

Then God's Will can dance

Inside your heart-garden.


25289

An aspiration-heart relinquishes

As soon as possible

Its ignorance-employment.


25290

Listening to God's Will

Is not enough.

It has to be constant,

Plus conscious.


25291

God every day expects

Something more divine and perfect

From His chosen ones.


25292

A God-hungry aspiration

Can be satisfied

Only with higher Dreams

And Realities of God.


25293

Where is God's Love?

Alas, it is shrouded in man's

Abysmal obscurity and impurity.


25294

Alas, when will I realise

That the very Name-utterance of God

Is a great privilege in my life?


25295

Alas, when will I realise

That each moment

Is a golden

God-manifestation-opportunity?


25296

Alas,

My heart-bank has become bankrupt

Because I have taken for so many years

Mind-information-education.


25297

God does not want us to be ready

For the unknown rivers of sorrow.

He asks us only to swim and sing

In today's happiness-multiplied

Murmuring rivers.


25298

He who has turned his life

Towards God

Consciously and devotedly

Will, without fail, succeed

Either in the immediacy of today

Or in the very near future.


25299

The soul does not

Command us.

It only whispers.


25300

Our excellence-virtues can lead us

Right up to God's Palace Gate.

But our unconditional surrender

Will immediately lead us to God's Throne,

Where He is always available.
