The secret to make you happy4


My Captain, do tell me the secret

To make You happy.

My Captain, there was a time

When I was in the desire-world.

Therefore, You were so sad.

But now I am in the aspiration-world.

Why are You so sad now?

It seems that I will never be able

To make You happy.

“My child, while you were in the desire-world,

You were a ferocious and all-devouring tiger.

Therefore, it was impossible for Me

To be pleased with you and remain happy.

Although you now live in the aspiration-world,

Your aspiration-life is as weak as a tiny ant.

How can I be proud of you?

How can I be happy?”

My Captain,

My desire-life created sadness for You.

My aspiration-life is creating sadness for You.

I do hope someday I shall realise You,

And my realisation-life

Will make You truly happy.

“My child, it entirely depends

On what kind of realisation you want.

If you long for a realisation-drop

And not a realisation-ocean,

Then you will undoubtedly

Make me once more unhappy.

Right now your realisation-hour is a far cry.

But since you are in your aspiration-life,

Aspire and aspire for the highest height.

Your achievement of your highest height

Will eventually blossom

Into an inseparable oneness-realisation

With My Universal Life.

“Forget your desire-life.

Neglect not your aspiration-life.

Inject your aspiration-life

With your heart’s promise-light

So that at My choice Hour I can bless you

For your realisation

Most powerfully, most proudly and most happily

With My Immortality's Satisfaction-Delight."
