Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 31

3001

Now that you have surrendered

Your life to God,

You have at least one Person

Who will listen to you,

And that Person is God Himself.


3002

Are you a thief

That you have to enter

Into God’s Heart-Room

On tiptoe?


3003

Always carry your soul-map

With you

If you really want

To reach Heaven.


3004

Nobody wants to know

Your mind’s expert opinion.

Everyone wants to have

Your heart’s perfect union.


3005

You are afraid

That God does not speak

Your language.

But God does speak

Your heart-language.


3006

Something in my heart tells me

That I shall not only realise God

In this lifetime

But also manifest God on earth

Far beyond my expectation.


3007

His wisdom-life

And his ignorance-death

Are fighting all the time

Inside his heart.


3008

God’s Fountain-Love

Is not above

My division-head

But deep inside

My oneness-heart.


3009

You may not know,

Perhaps you will never know,

That you are not only

Humanity’s hope

But you are humanity’s only hope.


3010

Enthusiasm is energy.

Energy defeats

Failure-life.


3011

There may not be

Any place for God

Inside you,

But inside God’s Heart

I am sure there is always

A place for you.


3012

Your vital attachment

Has totally destroyed

The heart-plant

Of your inner beauty.


3013

If you are

God’s chosen instrument

On earth,

Then do not take anything

For granted.


3014

If you surround yourself

With purity,

Heaven’s divinity will

At every moment

Shake hands with you.


3015

It is not

His fear of death

But his fear of life

That has separated him

From human society.


3016

It happens all the time

That when God sends for me

I am unavailable.


3017

One song

I shall never forget:

My Lord’s

Daily Forgiveness-Song.


3018

I want to complete

The last page of my life’s book

Only with my heart’s gratitude-tears

And my life’s surrender-cheers.


3019

If you blow

Your ego-trumpet,

How do you expect God

To keep you

Inside His Compassion-Net?


3020

Your confidence-light

You must feel

At this very moment

And not leave

To the distant future.


3021

To speak to you

About your heart’s surrender-life

Is more useless

Than talking to a brick wall!


3022

Do not try

To imitate perfection.

Your very attempt

Will end in a sad fiasco.


3023

Each individual

In his own clever way

Thinks he can easily have

A cloud-free aspiration-cry

If he wants to.


3024

So much I owe

To God the man!

I really do not even dare

To think of it.


3025

If you want to repeat

Anything in your life,

You can do so,

Except for one thing:

Do not repeat

Your life’s repeated defeats.


3026

Your heart’s purity-bird

Has flown away

Because your mind

Has totally destroyed

Your life’s beauty-nest.


3027

If you have a soul,

Which you have,

Then you must ask your soul

To show its victory-light

Inside your body-room.


3028

God’s only question

To humanity:

“Children,

When will you start

The victory-voyage

Of life?”


3029

Only a purity-pilgrim

Has the right

To walk on the soul’s

Perfection-road.


3030

You are not the only one

Who suffers from

The infectious doubt-disease.

Doubt-disease has covered

The length and breadth

Of the world.


3031

It is now high time

For you

To gather together

All your heart’s

Immortal treasures:

Affection, purity, love

And oneness.


3032

God the Justice

May not wait

At the end of every road.

But God the Compassion

Will definitely wait

At the end of each and every road.


3033

Even his eyes

Do not have

Any trace of desire,

Not to speak of

His heart.


3034

The outer world

Does not want to claim him

Because the inner world

Does not trust him.


3035

If your mind knows

How to confine your life,

Then your heart knows

How to pine for liberation

And also

How to dine with God-Satisfaction.


3036

God does not want you to have

A hermit-heart.

He wants you to have

His own Emperor-Heart.


3037

His mind enjoys

Only one thing:

Constant confrontation

With God’s Compassion.


3038

Your heart’s cheerful willingness

To obey God

Will wash away

Your mind’s ignorance

Of millennia.


3039

I sing my God-songs

Only for God

The Listener.


3040

Poor God

Has no time for Himself.

He uses all His time

To listen to humanity’s complaints

Against Him.


3041

You may be helpless,

But never, never think

That you are hopeless,

Absolutely hopeless.


3042

You can boast

Of your desire-fire

Only until

God the Fireman arrives.


3043

His heart was surprised to see

That his mind

Had totally collapsed

Owing to its unwillingness

To obey the soul.


3044

His lack of enthusiasm

Has helped him

To build his own

Failure-prison.


3045

Tell God your troubles.

If you do not tell Him,

He will spend all His time

Listening to others’ troubles,

And you and your troubles

Will remain inseparable.


3046

God does not command you.

It is you

Who command your life

To be disobedient

To God’s Will.


3047

Your body, vital, mind and heart

All want to play with God.

But God plays only

With your heart

And its purity.


3048

God did not want you

To give up.

He just wanted you

To give in

To His Immortality’s Will.


3049

If you see

A sincerity-landmark,

That means

That secretly an angel-heart

Is leading you

On the right path.


3050

Now that you have stepped down

From your ego-pedestal,

God is not just walking,

But running

Towards you.


3051

Your body

You cannot expand.

Your mind

You cannot expand.

But your heart

You can definitely expand.

What for?

To embrace God’s universe.


3052

Nothing can change him.

No, not even the threat

Of imminent death!


3053

Are you walking

Beyond the borders

Of an unbounded time?

Then you are bound to have

A new Companion:

God.


3054

What do you want?

Do you want

God’s two strong Arms

Or

His one Silence-Heart?


3055

His mind forgets

That he has not made

Many attempts.

It only remembers one thing:

No success.


3056

I do not want to be

A tennis ball,

But I really want my life

To be as perfect

As the surrender

Of a tennis ball.


3057

They say

Man is evolving

And progressing.

Alas, what do I see?

Barbarian behaviour

Is the order of the day!


3058

Why does God refuse

Man’s desires?

Is it because He is

Incapable?

Or is it because He is still

Compassionate to mankind?

Aspiration-lovers and desire-lovers

Have different answers.


3059

Every day

When I pray soulfully

And meditate peacefully,

God provides me

With a new heart-room

To work on my life’s ideals.


3060

God’s Compassion plays

With the broken hearts.

God’s Satisfaction chats

With the chosen lives.


3061

A willing God-servant

Always loves mankind

Not only unreservedly

But also unconditionally.


3062

There is always

A terrible fight

Between false hope

And real success.


3063

A self-giving moment

Has the giant capacity

To move a chain

Of ignorance-mountains.


3064

In the morning

I pray to my Beloved Supreme

To shut my mind-gate

Against uncomely thoughts.


In the morning

I meditate on my Beloved Supreme

To grant me the capacity

To come out of the deep cave

Of blind darkness.


3065

The death

Of your devotion-life

I cannot believe —

I cannot even imagine!


3066

If you want to run a race

Every day,

Then I advise you to run only

Your life’s cheerfulness-race.


3067

Humanity’s unfulfilled

Desire-sorrow

Is no match for

Humanity’s fulfilled

Desire-joy.


3068

Alas,

His heart is totally defenceless

Against his mind’s

Unexpected doubt-invasion.


3069

Did you ever imagine

That you would be so pure

That you could see God’s Eye

And be at God’s Feet?


3070

You have taken upon yourself

An impossibility-task:

To forge God’s

Blessing-Signature.


3071

Everything that you have

Is undivine.

Even inside your humility

What looms large

Is your pride.


3072

An impurity-heart

Is a loveless heart.

A loveless heart

Is a God-Visionless heart.


3073

One good decision

Leads to another:

“I shall realise God...

I shall become perfect.”


3074

I will fail God:

This is a secret

That I do not want

Under any circumstances

To be divulged.


3075

A mind of suspicion

Needs a heart of purity

For its newness-illumination

And vastness-perfection.


3076

You want to know

Who will be the keeper

Of my heart-castle.

God the Lover

Has graciously agreed

To do the job

Unconditionally.


3077

His hope-tree

Was shattered

The day his mind’s doubts

Replaced his heart’s faith.


3078

Each life must cultivate

Every day

A green newness-field

To collect a bumper crop

Of aspiration.


3079

Your ceaseless thirst

For purity in God’s world

Will someday

Definitely be quenched.


3080

My mind enjoys

Isolation,

My heart enjoys

Consolation

And I enjoy

My Lord’s Compassion.


3081

Make up your mind!

Do you want God to please you,

Or do you want God’s infinite Blessings

To please God?


3082

Do you want to serve God?

Then you need more

Heavenly credentials

And you need no

Earthly experience.


3083

God is your

Open Admirer.

Can you not

At least try

To be His secret admirer?


3084

Your heart’s gratitude-bird

Flies away

Quicker than your mind’s

Imagination-bird.


3085

The gratitude-heart

Of your meditation-life

Earns God’s most powerful

Silence-Smile.


3086

God does call

Your heart’s aspiration-name

All the time.


3087

When you talk to God about me,

It is not just

Between you and God.

I must also know

All about it.


3088

Your heart has to be

Always

A patient pilgrim

On your inner path.


3089

Insecurity is a contagious disease

That one sufferer receives

From another deplorable sufferer.


3090

I always wanted

To be tall in the inner world.

I always wanted

To be strong in the outer world.


3091

Do not miss a moment

If you do not want to leave

Any room for regret

In your aspiration-life.


3092

Destruction-mountain

Lies right on top

Of depression-land.


3093

One peaceful word of Yours

Has awakened my heart.

One powerful word of Yours

Has illumined my heart.


3094

Who can appreciate stupidity?

Not even the man

Who possesses stupidity

In abundance!


3095

You will not be able

To recognise God

Unless you admire

God’s selfless Dedication-Army.


3096

You are yearning

For an extra-special love.

What you actually need

Is an extra-fruitful awareness.


3097

What you need

Is not desire-deprivation.

What you need

Is desire-illumination.


3098

My body revolts

Against my heart

Every day.

My heart does not know

And does not want to know

How to revolt

Against my body.


3099

He who indulges in cynicism

Thinks that there is nothing good

On earth.

But the Absolute Supreme

Knows that there is nothing not good

Either on earth or in Heaven.


3100

My Lord,

This heart is Yours.

Even if You do not forgive me,

I shall not forget

The Compassion-Beauty of Your Heart.
