My Christmas-New Year-Vacation Aspiration-Prayers, part 43

11

God-realisation

Is never

For the weak.



  1. APR 3454. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 16 December 2005.

2

God-realisation

Is also never

For the strong.


3

God-realisation

Is only

For God-surrendered

God-seekers.


4

If I give God anything —

Just a little,

An insignificant little —

Lovingly, cheerfully

And self-givingly,

God gets immense joy.


5

When I pray to God

For the fulfilment of my desires,

God says to me,

“I am ready to fulfil your desires,

But will you be ready

For the day I choose?

I am sure you will have

No patience to wait.

Your desire-fulfilment-day

Will take a very, very long time.

By that time

Your desire will disappear.”


6

God says to me,

“Your success

Gives Me very little joy.

Your progress

Gives Me much more joy.

Your love for Me,

Your concern for Me,

Your satisfaction

In My Satisfaction —

My Way is your way —

Give Me boundless

And boundless Bliss.”


7

When we speak ill of the world

Almost on a daily basis,

We undoubtedly give

A most painful headache

To God.


8

If I lose my faith in God

And at the same time feel

That out of sheer Concern for me

God will give me abundant faith,

This kind of hope or expectation

Will never, never succeed.


9

God never thinks ill of us —

Never!

It is we who are quite apt

To think ill of ourselves.

The more we think ill of ourselves,

God’s Golden Shore sails away

Far, farther, farthest.


10

God,

Are You pleased with me?

“My child,

If you are pleased with yourself,

Yes!

If you are not pleased with yourself,

Then I shall never be pleased

With you.”


111

Do not blame God,

Do not blame God!

He is not interested

In your results,

But He is deeply interested

And eager and anxious

To know your attitude.



  1. APR 3464. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 17 December 2005.

12

If the heart does not smile

At the rising sun,

Then God feels very, very sad.


13

If constant God-service

Does not appeal to you,

Then you can never be

A first-class devotee.


14

My heart surrenders

To God’s Will

All the time —

Not partially,

But wholeheartedly.


15

My soul advises my heart:

“Keep climbing,

Keep climbing!

Look upward

And nowhere else.”


16

I never allow my mind

To enjoy negative thoughts

During the day,

Specially in the morning

And in the evening.


17

Aspiration-road wants

Only aspiration-runners

And not desire-winners.


18

God proudly keeps

His sincere seekers

In His Heart-Paradise.


19

Soulfulness

Is the fragrance

Of the heart.


20

Pay no attention

To life’s storms.

Pay all attention

To the sunlit days

In your heart.


211

God wants me to join

His Dedication-Army

Most self-givingly.



  1. APR 3474. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 18 December 2005.

22

God-unwillingness

Is, indeed, dangerous poison

In the spiritual life.


23

May my heart

Be encircled

By aspiration-flames.


24

My aspiration

And God’s Compassion

Are extremely fond of each other.


25

My aspiration-flute

I play in Heaven.


26

My dedication-violin

I play on earth.


27

If you sincerely aspire,

You are bound to be

On an extremely high level

Of consciousness.


28

The ruling mind

Eventually becomes

Its own prisoner.


29

My aspiration-garden

And my dedication-plants

So lovingly and self-givingly

Live together.


30

May my aspiration-boat

Sail fast, very fast,

On the river of my life.


311

My Lord,

I promise to You

That I shall once more please You

In Your own Way.



  1. APR 3484. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 19 December 2005.

32

If only I had listened

To my Lord Supreme,

By today undoubtedly

I could have become

An excellent seeker.


33

My prayerful and soulful singing

I place only

At my Lord’s Feet.


34

How can the mind

Have an iota of peace

When it is overwhelmed

By desire-thoughts?


35

God’s most precious discovery:

Man’s tiny gratitude-heart.


36

O my mind,

Your excuse list is so rapidly

And painfully increasing.


37

Every day

The seeker must enjoy —

And not just accept —

God’s living Presence.


38

If you really want to do

Something good for God,

Then do not plan ahead.

God’s Will will blossom

In God’s Way

Inside your heart.


39

God’s only desire

Is man’s selflessness.


40

God wants to be

Your sole possession

Only if you have no question,

And also if you have

Only one longing:

God-realisation.


411

May Mother Earth, Father Heaven

And all their children

Live together peacefully.



  1. APR 3494. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 20 December 2005.

42

Each soul

Has a special fragrance

To raise the consciousness

Of the world.


43

May my God-loving heart

Always remain as calm and peaceful

As a waveless sea.


44

Each seeker needs

An earthly

Mountain-high determination

And a Heavenly

Adamantine will.


45

The supreme importance

Of aspiration and dedication

Each and every seeker

Must try to realise.


46

My Lord’s Eye

Has forced me to stay away

From the desire-world.


47

I have detached

My expectation-mind

From my God-service.


48

There was no distance,

There is no distance,

There shall be no distance

Between man’s heart

And God’s Eye.


49

There is only one thing

To treasure:

The ever-growing silence-beauty

Inside one’s aspiration-heart.


50

Every morning

Not my Lord’s Eye,

Not my Lord’s Heart,

But my Lord’s Breath

Knocks at my heart-door.


511

When you justify

Your weaknesses,

God’s anger triples.



  1. APR 3504. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 21 December 2005.

52

Why converse with ignorance?

You have infinitely more important

Things to do.


53

My Lord,

It seems that

Everybody’s inner problems

Are most painfully heavy.


54

Doubt dies

When our love of God

Speedily flies

In our heart-sky.


55

God is ready to bless me

With experience after experience,

But alas,

Am I ready?

Will I ever be ready?


56

The aspiration-life

Is not a life of secrecy

But a life of ecstasy.


57

God’s Blessings

I take

As unimaginable surprises.


58

When aspiration is our only choice,

Then God gives us a voice —

His own Voice.


59

It is not a difficult task

To catch ignorance-thief

Red-handed.


60

Silence is, indeed,

The best kind

Of peace-preparation.


611

I promise, I promise, I promise:

From now on

I shall listen

To my Lord Supreme

Wholeheartedly.



  1. APR 3514. These prayers were given in Kuantan, Malaysia — 22 December 2005.

62

A soulful heart-singer

Immediately brings joy

To God.


63

When God calls you,

You must remember

To bring with you

Your heart’s light

And your mind’s darkness

Together.


64

Your mind, vital and body

Will be dumbfounded

When God’s Light descends.


65

Very few visible miracles

Of the Master

Do we see.

The inner world of the Master

Is, indeed, full of

Mushroom-density-miracles.


66

God created endless ways

So that we can please Him

At least in one way.


67

To my greatest joy,

My aspiration-heart-boat

Is under full sail.


68

Long, long ago

I left cheerfully and proudly

Doubt-territory.


69

God’s Sweetness

I do not need.

God’s Newness

I do not need.

I need only

God’s God-Oneness.


70

Aspiration-decline

Is

A most painful experience.
