Two God-Amusement-Rivals: my Heart-Song-Beauty and my Life-Dance-Fragrance, part 7

601.

My soul is advising me

To astound my Lord Supreme

With my heart's aspiration-leaps.


602.

What I need

Is not a doubt-destroying light,

But a doubt-illumining

And faith-fulfilling light.


603.

How can a reasoning mind

Ever be happy?

How can an aspiring heart

Ever be unhappy?


604.

If you do not wake up

At God's choice Hour,

Then you will be

The inevitable loser.


605.

Although we are mortal,

God has given us

Ample capacity and opportunity

To sing immortal songs

To please Him.


606.

The life's simplicity,

The mind's sincerity

And the heart's purity

Are fellow pilgrims upon the path

That leads to God's Kingdom.


607.

God descends

With His Compassion-Feet

To rescue each aspiring human soul

From the chains of ignorance-night.


608.

My heart sings

With the rising sun.

My heart dances

With the rising sun.

My heart pleases God

With the rising sun.

My heart fulfils God

With the rising sun.


609.

This world of ours

Can truly progress

Only on a tidal wave

Of self-giving lives.


610.

Aspiration always has

A cheerful, full-time job:

To bring us to the goal

At a very fast speed.


611.

The delight of the soul

Takes birth on earth

To manifest God's Light

And to challenge death's supremacy.


612.

Alas, I sometimes forget

That my heart has wings

To fly to God.


613.

My heart always writes

God-letters

On its beautiful and soulful

Surrender-gratitude-stationery.


614.

The pride of disobedience

Is indeed the worst possible

Inner calamity.


615.

My life is blessed because

My God-manifestation-dream

Has now become

An unmistakable reality.


616.

The power

Of each God-fulfilling breath

Will always remain

Unfathomable.


617.

Every day

God enters into my heart-garden

To collect

My gratitude-heart-flowers.


618.

You are indispensable to God

Only if you feel

That you are dependent upon God

At every moment.


619.

An unaspiring mind

Is nothing other than

A complete failure

In God's Cosmic Game.


620.

A self-giving heart

Is indeed a blessingful gift

From the highest Heaven.


621.

May the fragrance-heart of Mother-Earth

Every day purify

My heart, my mind, my vital and my body.


622.

The wisdom of a oneness-heart

Is undoubtedly

Sweeter than the sweetest honey.


623.

To please God

Cheerfully

And to love God

Unconditionally

Is to satisfy and fulfil God

Completely.


624.

Is there any mighty soul

Whose life has not suffered

From sad experiences?


625.

There is no need of rest

For a truly God-serving life.

There is no need of rest

For a truly God-fulfilling heart.


626.

God's Compassion is ever ready

To help me meet Him

Inside His Heart-Home.


627.

When I please God

In His own Way,

He blessingfully invites me

To play in His Heart-Garden.


628.

What can silence your mind?

Your heart can.

Just give your heart a real chance.


629.

To reach the Highest

You must unconditionally

Help the lowest.


630.

Selfishness belongs

To the stone age.

Self-givingness belongs

To the divine age.


631.

Perfect teaching

Is nothing other than

Sharing with others

The knowledge

That we claim as our own.


632.

The more

I soulfully meditate,

The more

I unreservedly love God.


633.

When my aspiration seriously decreases,

My days and nights are nothing

But constant and hopeless torture.


634.

When I do not inspire the world,

When I do not aspire for the world,

My life becomes a series of ego-disasters.


635.

May all my days and nights

Become world-salvation

And world-liberation-longing.


636.

The journey from the body to the soul

Is indeed a very long one,

But we can shorten the journey

By loving God the creation

Infinitely more

Than we have been doing.


637.

When God whispers,

Man's mind gives no response.

But man's heart gives an immediate response.

Therefore, man's heart is always cherished

By God.


638.

Do not remain

In your mind's unhappiness.

Your mind's unhappiness

Will ruthlessly torture your life.


639.

God does not want me

To fly His Victory-Banner in Heaven.

He wants me

To fly His Victory-Banner on earth,

Here and now.


640.

More than anything else,

God wants me to be

His proudest Smile.


641.

True, there is an abundance

Of false teachers,

But who asked you not to use

Your heart's wisdom-light

To find a true teacher

Who can illumine your life?


642.

There are many pathways to God,

But I have chosen

The unconditional love-pathway to God.


643.

There was a time

When I worshipped God

In the hope that

He would make me happy.

But now I love God

Only to make God happy.


644.

When we live in the mind,

Our mind can at most give us

Transient happiness.

When we live in the heart

And for the heart,

Our heart gives us

Ever-blossoming happiness.


645.

A God-inundated heart

Each human being needs

To make himself really,

Divinely and supremely happy.


646.

O my Lord,

I am praying to You

To grant me the adamantine will-power

To completely loosen

My mind's possession-grip.


647.

God can easily remain forever untouched

By man's ignorance-eye,

But His Compassion-Heart allows

Man's ignorance-eye to touch Him

Whenever it wants to.


648.

The wiser man becomes,

The easier it is for God

To give to man,

And the more man can receive

From God.


649.

Who can satisfy

A selfish person?

No, not even God Himself.


650.

I do not need

A thought-provoking mind.

I need

A God-invoking heart.


651.

If we really want to make God happy,

Then we have to make a daring attempt

To scale God's Perfection-Peak.


652.

My Lord,

I pray to You

To make me my Master's

Constant joy-fountain-smile.


653.

There is a grand staircase

Between Heaven and earth.

You are allowed to use that staircase

Only when your life becomes

An unconditional surrender

To God's Will.


654.

My Lord Supreme

Definitely loves

Even my bullock cart-speed-progress.


655.

Indeed a major surprise:

Even my mind is now

Entirely dependent on God.


656.

My jungle-mind

Has surprisingly entered

Into my heart-garden-home

To sincerely become

A member of its family.


657.

The more

Man speaks unkindly

About God's creation,

The less

God listens.


658.

A sleeplessly God-loving heart

Is fully responsible

For my mind's radical and magical

Miracle-transformation.


659.

O my heart,

At every moment

Keep yourself away from the vital's

All-poisoning God-resentment.


660.

Each morning when I awaken,

I ascend

To a new God-fulfilling beginning.

Each morning I am pleased

To fulfil God

Only in God's own Way.


661.

My heart's confidence-strength

Blossoms

Only in my life's

Surrender-length-increase.


662.

Each forgiveness-prayer

Is the beginning

Of a perfection-dreaming life.


663.

Sincerity belongs to divinity.

Divinity belongs to God's

All-illumining Compassion-Eye.


664.

God breathed a sigh of relief

When I told Him

That I was finally ready to please Him

Always in His own Way.


665.

The mind and the mind's path

Will definitely end

In utter confusion-country.


666.

God is both anxious and eager

To attend humanity's

God-fulfilling willingness-festival.


667.

Twin brothers: life and death.

Life tells me:

"You can; you certainly can.

Therefore, do not give up."

Death tells me:

"You cannot; you certainly cannot.

Therefore, take rest."


668.

The delight of the heart

Has the power to bring

The distant near

Sooner than the soonest.


669.

Today my ignorance-mind-cloud

Has covered my entire being,

But tomorrow my entire being

Will bask in the sunshine

Of my soul's freedom.


670.

For an ordinary life,

Ups and downs are a requirement.

For an aspiring life,

The story can be totally different.


671. The Fragrance...

The fragrance

Of a gratitude-heart

Forever remains unsurpassable.


672.

When I meditate,

I see a peace-bird

Folding its wings

Over my heart-nest.


673.

In vain my noisy mind

Tries to claim a monopoly

On my Lord's Attention.


674.

Today the human life

Is a chorus of helpless tears.

Tomorrow the same human life

Can be a chorus of endless smiles.


675.

Since nothing human is everlasting,

O stupid mind,

How do you dare to think

That your pride can be everlasting?


676.

God wants my gratitude-heart

To plant His Victory-Banner

In my own oneness-life,

And nowhere else.


677.

A completely God-surrendered life

Can never be hidden

By time and space.


678.

A devotion-magnet-heart

Is a never-ending delight

To both the seeker

And the Lord Supreme.


679.

God's Peace

Is in search of a helper.

A God-server

Can come to its rescue.


680.

The garden of the heart

Is always frequented by God.

The jungle of the mind

Is never visited by God.


681.

God is never fond of

The mind's oldness.

God is always fond of

The heart's newness

And fulness.


682.

Cultivate a devotion-flooded heart.

Your life will be able to reap

A bumper crop of satisfaction.


683.

No, nobody can prevent me

From keeping

My God-manifestation-promise.


684.

An aspiring heart has the capacity

To enhance the quality

Of each blossoming moment.


685.

O my heart,

Dive deep within

And be the discoverer

Of your God-fulfilment-dawn.


686.

When I do not aspire,

My life helplessly becomes

An endless night of despair.


687.

O my heart,

Touch and feed the world

With your golden smile.

Lo, the world is advancing

Fast, very fast,

Towards the destined Goal.


688.

Wisdom-light

And nothing else

Is the seed

Of every virtue.


689.

My vital hopes

To feel excitement.

My heart hopes

Not merely to be enlightened,

But to become enlightenment itself.


690.

May my mind constantly dance

With divine eagerness-impatience

To see the Feet

Of my Lord Beloved Supreme.


691.

I thought God was

A strict disciplinarian,

But now I see that God is

A constant and compassionate entertainer.


692.

God wants you to give Him

Your silence-heart,

Which is His Heart's

Proudest Palace.


693.

Each child

Is a new wonder.

Each child

Is a new discoverer.

Each child

Is an ever-new dawn-harbinger.


694.

To my extreme joy,

My Lord has given me the capacity

To say a final good-bye

To two of my old friends:

Insecurity and selfishness.


695.

Alas,

At times the stupidity-mind

Is shamelessly proud

Of its own incapacities.


696.

The mind-world hungers

For God's Power-Sun.

The heart-world hungers

For God's Love-Moon.


697.

My heart's hope

And my life's promise

Can never be at variance

With each other.


698.

I run after

A brilliant mind.

God runs after

My pure heart.


699.

If you have

A single-minded devotion,

Then there is nothing

That you cannot achieve in life.


700.

When I pray to God

Self-givingly,

He blesses me by granting me

The loving depth of His Compassion-Eye.
