The beginning and the arriving

1.

The beginning

Gives me

Always more joy

Than the arriving.


2.

God's Compassion

Silences

Man's justice.


3.

My endless imperfections

Keep God

Sleeplessly busy.


4.

God's Greatness

Puzzles

My mind.


5.

God's Goodness

Awakens

My heart.


6.

Faith earns.

Doubt steals.


7.

Faith

Pitifully cries.

Doubt

Shamelessly laughs.


8.

Nature is at once

The mother

And the child

Of a miracle.


9.

Nature does not know

How to divide.

Nature only knows

How to unite

And multiply.


10.

The shallow mind

Questions.

The deep heart

Answers.


11.

Fear and self-torture

Regularly play

Hide and seek.


12.

The mind

Is afraid

Of silence.


13.

The heart

Is afraid

Of Infinity.


14.

Silence

Is beyond

Both the knower

And the known.


15.

Desire

Is

An insecurity-prisoner.


16.

Competition-game

God does not know

How to play.

What is strange,

He does not even want

To learn it.


17.

Yesterday

I was a sweetness-desire.

Today

I have become

Bitterness-frustration.


18.

Unwillingness-thorn

Was

My yesterday's choice.


19.

My today's choice

Is

Willingness-flower-

Fragrance.


20.

Go forward!

Go forward!

Be not afraid

Of even

A marathon-obstacle!


21.

I need

Only one thing:

A divinely inspired

Warrior-eye.


22.

My unconditional heart

Receives from God

The sunshine

Of His Peace-Sky.


23.

Humanity's

Self-giving smiles

Are Divinity's

New God-manifesting

Creations.


24.

A life without prayers

And meditations

Is nothing other than

An agonising emptiness.


25.

My life swims

Every day

In the sweet sea of hope.


26.

Yesterday

I was

My competition-eye.


27.

Today

I am

My competence-heart.


28.

My prayers

Are my heart's

Experience-flowers.


29.

My meditations

Are my life's

Realisation-fruits.


30.

My heart

Teaches me

God-obedience.

My life

Teaches me

God-obeisance.


31.

My unconditional surrender

Is the topmost branch

Of my life-beauty's tree.


32.

God's dancing ankle-bells

Are only for

The aspiration-heart

To hear.


33.

Each desire

Is a bottomless

Nothingness-abyss.


34.

To an unconditionally

Surrendered soul,

God does not come alone.

He comes with His Breath,

Blissfully embracing.


35.

Alas,

My life is nothing other than

An ingratitude-dagger.


36.

An indifference-mind

Is indeed

A destructive knife.


37.

My Lord,

Every day

Do make my heart

A new gratitude-prayer.


38.

I may allow myself

To lose all my other resolves

But never, never

My God-satisfaction-resolve.


39.

With my aspiration-heart

I began my journey.

With my dedication-life

I shall forever continue.


40.

My heart

Is always eager

To give my mind

God-lessons

Free of charge.


41.

A singing heart

Is

A flying life.


42.

Fear

Binds the body.

Doubt

Blinds the eyes.

Suspicion

Blights the heart.


43.

Good-bye, ego,

Good-bye.

Hello, surrender,

Hello.


44.

My Lord,

May I make every day

A new gratitude-prayer.


45.

Nothing

Can be more powerful

Than eagerness.


46.

Nothing

Can be more fruitful

Than surrender.


47.

Nothing

Can be more beautiful

Than forgiveness.


48.

A soulful smile

Can create a blissful

Transformation-life.


49.

Today

I am determined

To honour

All my promises

To God.


50.

Nature means

Life-enlightenment

And not

Mind-confinement.
