Lord, I Am Tired

Lord, I am tired.

“Since you are tired, my son,

Even before your journey’s start,

I shall run for you.”

Lord, I am tired.

“Since you are tired, my son,

Even before your journey’s start,

I shall sail your dream-boat

And reach for you

Your golden Reality-Shore.”


Only Three Things I Love

Only three things I love:

The child-dance of the morning sky.

The hero-dance of the mid-day sky.

The yogi-trance of the evening sky.


Intruding Thoughts, Stop

Intruding thoughts, stop!

Illumining will, start!

Dreaming night, awake!

Aspiring day, receive!


Enough Is Enough!

Enough is enough!

Why do I criticise God’s Perfection-Light?

Enough is enough!

Why do I immortalise my ignorance-night?

Enough is enough!

Why do I summarise my failure-blight?


Doubt-Road

Doubt-road

Is the road for the ridiculous.

Faith-road

Is the road for the auspicious.

Fear-road

Is the road for the treacherous.

Courage-road

Is the road for the generous.


Man, Pray for Me

Man, pray for me.

I need your help

To feel God’s Grace.

God, think of me.

I need Your Help

To change man’s face.


Is God Lonely?

Is God lonely?

Yes, He is.

Why?

Because I forgot to invite Him this morning.

Is God lonely?

Yes, He is.

Why?

Because I am still here,

And I have not gone to visit Him

And play with Him.


Morning Is the Time

Morning is the time

For my loving heart

To feed my child-God.

Evening is the time

For my loving heart

To dance with my Beloved God.

Night is the time

For my loving heart

To confide in my partner-God.


A Song Without Words

A song without words is by far the best.

A life without doubt is by far the best.

A soul with a goal-sun is by far the best.

A goal with a love-moon is by far the best.


Mister Guru

Mister Guru,

You say you have realised God.

Can you prove it?

Mister disciple,

You feel you are not another God.

Can you prove it?

Yes I can, yes I can, Mister Guru.

My ignorance-sea before you

Is my unmistakable proof.

I, too, can prove, Mister disciple.

My love-compassion-sky for you

Is my undeniable proof.


Are You Not Amazed?

Are you not amazed at your physical strength?

Look how easily you have ended

The life of a living ant!

Are you not amazed at your spiritual strength?

Look how perfectly you have housed

The omnipotent Lord inside your tiny breast!


Fight Your Only Opponent

Fight your only opponent: fear.

Love your only friend: joy.

Break your only bond: temptation.

Build your only palace: truth.

Sing your only song: love.

Dance your only dance: perfection.


Jealousy Burns You

Jealousy burns you because you fan it.

Fear tears you because you welcome it.

Doubt devours you because you treasure it.


Lack of Money

Lack of money delays your world-journey.

Lack of love delays your life-journey.

Lack of aspiration delays your God-journey.

Yet, if you can remain happy,

Money-seeds will grow in you,

Love-river will flow through you,

Aspiration-mountain will wait for you.


They Have Lost Power

Doubt has lost power,

Therefore,

It tries to topple you.

Fear has lost power,

Therefore,

It tries to strangle you.

Anxiety has lost power,

Therefore,

It tries to exile you.


God, Do You Really Care for Me?

God, do You really care for me?

If not, this very day let us part for good.

“Son, I really care for you.’

Then, Father, let us peacefully stay together.

Father, do You really need me?

If not, this very day, let us part for good.

“Son, I really need you.’

Then, Father, let us happily stay together.


Let Me See

Let me see who can separate God’s Feet

From my head.

See?

I told you, nobody can.

Let me see who can separate God’s Soul-Life

From my love-role.

See?

I told you, nobody can.


God, I Blame You

God, I blame You.

Why did You answer

My desire-night?

God, I blame You.

Why do You delay in answering

My aspiration-prayer?

Well, I have to forgive You,

Since on many occasions

You have forgiven me,

The dark animal in me,

And the weak human in me.


For Three Reasons God Loves Me

For three reasons God loves me:

I have given up my animal pride.

I have forgotten my human ignorance.

I treasure my life divine.


I Do Not Fly with Fear

I do not fly with fear,

Because fear dies on the way.

I do not sing with doubt,

Because doubt forgets the tune.

I do not dance with anxiety,

Because anxiety has lost its innocent charm.


God Does Not Try to Please Man

God does not try to please man any more,

Because He has learned that it is a hopeless case.

Man never tries to please God,

Because it is not, after all, an important case.


Forward to the Shore

Forward to the shore!

God will offer you

His silver Throne.

Upward to the stars!

God will offer you

His golden Crown.

Inward to the source!

God will offer you

His diamond Heart.


In Vain I Am Searching

In vain I am searching

For my lost innocence-purity.

In vain I am crying

For my lost frankness-beauty.

In vain I am longing

For my goodness-divinity.


Head Down, Feet Up

Head down, feet up!

Lo, you have surrendered

To earth’s devouring night.

Feet down, head up!

Lo, Heaven has surrendered

To your all-knowing light.


God-Humility Descends from Heaven

God-humility descends from Heaven-Smile.

Man-humility ascends from earth-pangs.

My humility transcends my divinity-sphere.


Who Was I?

Who was I?

Formerly, a man-slave.

Who am I?

Presently, a freedom-lover.

Who shall I be?

Unmistakably, another Perfection-God.


My Heaven-Stars Tell Me

My Heaven-stars tell me

I shall become a living god.

My earth-doubts tell me

I am Eternity’s immortal fool.


I Lived to Fly Desire-Kite

I lived to fly desire-kite.

I live to brave desire-surge.

I shall live to bury desire-prince.


Be Sure to Take Care of Yourself

Be sure to take care of yourself today.

God wants to see your capacity’s light.

Be sure to take care of God tomorrow.

God wants to test your duty’s height.


My Mind's Nothingness I Face

My mind’s nothingness I face.

My heart’s emptiness I fill.

My soul’s nearness I treasure.

My body’s helplessness I measure.


I See God

I see God.

Do you doubt me?

Be careful!

God will delay your realisation-light.

I play with God.

Do you doubt me?

Be careful!

God will cancel your perfection-flight.


What I Say Is for God to Judge

What I say is for God to judge.

What I say is for man to feel.

What I say is for Heaven to measure.

What I say is for earth to treasure.

What I say is for me to become.


My God Is a Tempting God

My God is a tempting God

In the world of my desire-night.

My God is an ilumining God

In the world of my aspiration-light.

My God is a fulfilling God

In the world of my realisation-light.


Tell Me, Tell Me, God

Tell me, tell me, God,

Do You love me?

“Tell Me, tell Me, child,

Do you think of Me?”

Tell me, tell me, God,

Who will succeed You?

“Tell Me, tell Me, child,

Who will manifest Me?”


When God Gave Me the Body

When God gave me the body, He meant well.

He wanted my body to manifest Him.

But alas, what have I done?

And what have I not done?

When God gave me the vital, He meant well.

He wanted my vital to reveal Him.

But alas, what have I done?

And what have I not done?

When God gave me the mind, He meant well.

He wanted my mind to receive Him.

But alas, what have I done?

And what have I not done?

When God gave me the heart, He meant well.

He wanted my heart to feed Him.

But alas, what have I done?

And what have I not done?


When My Morning Ascends

When my morning ascends,

I think of God.

When my evening descends,

God thinks of me.

When my night transcends,

God becomes my real life and

I become God’s real love.


When My Mouth Is My Interpreter

When my mouth is my interpreter,

I suffer and I suffocate.

When my heart is my interpreter,

I prosper and I communicate.

When my God is my interpreter,

I offer and I liberate.


Someone Is Knocking, Perhaps God

Someone is knocking, perhaps God.

God can wait; after all, He deals with Eternity.

Someone is knocking, perhaps man.

I am sure he can’t wait, since he has only

A fleeting second at his disposal.

Therefore, let me go and open the door.

Someone is knocking, perhaps Satan.

Ah, he just breaks open the door.

God, You are kind to me.

Man, I am kind to you.

Satan, you are really something,

You are really impossible!


Your Love Will Multiply Itself

You love will multiply itself;

Just give it a fair chance.

Your aspiration will multiply itself;

Just give it an immediate chance.

Your realisation will multiply itself;

Just give it a lengthy chance.


The Disciple Who Has a Master

The disciple who has a Master

Has a chance.

The Master who has a

Has a chance.

God is the pride of their

Mutual surrender-light.


What Dies?

What dies?

A thinking mind.

What lives?

An aspiring heart.

What will die and never be reborn?

Earth’s depression-night.

What lives and will forever live?

Heaven’s Perfection-Smile.


Who Will Read My Books?

Who will read my books?

God?

God has no time.

Who will read my books?

Man?

Man has no time.

Who will read my books?

Ah, I see death approaching fast.

Death, you are my only supporter,

You are my only lover.

I shall, without fail, illumine you.


I Had Only Two Selves

I had only two selves.

I gave away my lower self to God

For its total transformation.

I gave away my higher self to Death

For Death’s complete transformation,

Illumination and perfection.


My God Is My Evolving Beauty

My God is my evolving beauty.

My God is my revealing duty.

My God is my illumining reality.

My God is my fulfilling necessity.


I Selected My Soul

I selected my soul

To love God on my behalf.

I selected my heart

To feel God on my behalf.

I selected my mind

To seek God on my behalf.

I selected my vital

To challenge God on my behalf.

I selected my body

To serve God on my behalf.


I Live in an Orphan World

I live in an orphan world;

Nobody cares for me.

I live in an infant world;

Nobody knows me.

I live in a consolation-world;

Therefore, I still breathe.


Only the Other Day

Pride was my beloved

Only the other day.

Humility was my beloved

Only yesterday.

Oneness will be my beloved

Right from today.


Yesterday I Challenged God

Yesterday

I challenged God,

Only to lose.

Today

I love God,

Only to win.

Tomorrow

I shall serve God,

Only to be perfect.
