My Master

Section one — my Master

1.

My heart dies

The moment it sees

My Master's sadness-tears.


2.

My heart sings, plays

And dances

In ecstasy supreme

When it sees my Master's

Gladness-smiles.


3.

Time salutes and stops

When my Master proudly expresses

His love, affection, sweetness

And fondness for me.


4.

Every morning

My Master helps my heart

Wake up

With his heart's sunrise-beauty.


5.

My Master cautioned me

And warned me

Of the tragic descent

Of my disobedience-life.


6.

O my impurity-mind,

Do not whine!

O my insecurity-heart,

Do not cry!

Behold, our Master,

With his compassion-flooded eye,

Is fast approaching us.


7.

When the Master appears,

He immediately says

To my frustration-mind, vital and body:

"Stop!

Enough of your stupidity-pride!"


He then says to my heart:

"Enjoy no more ignorance-sleep!

I want you to accept

Some of my

World-transformation-responsibilities."


8.

The Master appears and says:

"I am sure this time

My iron rod will work,

Since up until now

My sweetness-flute

Has sadly failed."


9.

My Master does not come alone.

He carries with him

His heart-home

So that his children

Do not wander any more

Inside their mind-jungles.


10.

Master, Master,

What is the difference

Between my faith in you

And your faith in me?

"My child, your faith in me

Depends on your sweet

Hope-fulfilment by me.

My faith in you

Entirely depends on

Your heart's love-strength

And

Your life's surrender-length."


11.

Master, Master, over the years

I have given you so many things.

It seems to me that you have shown me

No sense of appreciation.

Master, this time I have

Two very special gifts for you.

I am sure you will enjoy them.


"My child, tell me, tell me.

I am all eagerness."


Master, this time I shall give you

My gratitude-heart

And my surrender-life-beauty-fountains.


12.

Master, Master, please tell me

How you love me

More than I love you.


"My child,

Your heart needs repair.

Leave it with me just for an hour.

I will do the needful."


Section two — a God-realised Soul

13.

A God-realised Soul

Is

Divinity's Lion-Prince

But

Humanity's donkey-slave.


14.

The Soul of a God-realised Person

Tries with God

And

The Heart of a God-realised Person

Cries with God

For the transformation

Of humanity.


15.

A God-realised Soul

Is at once

God's Responsibility-Partner

And

Man's responsibility-frustration-reservoir.


16.

A God-realised Person

Is

Ninety-nine per cent underestimated

And

One hundred per cent misunderstood

By the elephant-ignorance-pride

Of humanity.


17.

A God-realised Person

Receives two gifts

From humanity:

Crucifixion-torture

From the desire-world

And

Glorification-rapture

From the aspiration-world.


18.

The silence of the inner world

Tells the God-realised Soul:

"Wake up!

Tarry not!

Hurry up!

Run up and down

While serving God

Inside the heart of humanity."


The sound of the outer world

Tells the God-realised Soul:

"Shut up!

Shut up!

Stay not here!

Pack up!

Go elsewhere!

Not here, not here!"


19.

The immortal Motto

Of a God-realised Soul:

Tomorrow's Dawn never begins.

Yesterday's Night never ends.


20.

A God-realised Person

Is at once

Humanity's thunder-kick-

Football-sufferer

And

Divinity's Bowling-Ball-

Winner-Dreamer.


21.

A God-realised Soul

Swims in the sea

Of Divinity's Tears

And

Drowns in the ocean

Of humanity's frowns.


22

Humanity does not need

A God-realised Soul

Because

He is not useful in humanity's eyes.


Divinity opens Heaven's Door

For a God-realised Soul

Only after He has accomplished

His supreme Task on earth.


23.

Divinity

Encourages a God-realised Soul

In His God-Manifestation-Hunger

By thunderous clapping.


Humanity

Discourages a God-realised Soul

In His God-Manifestation-Hunger

By ferocious slapping.


24.

The Heart of a God-realised Soul

Blossoms inside

God's Immortality-flooded Smile.


The Life of a God-realised Soul

Dies inside

Humanity's jealousy-dragon-eye.


25.

A God-realised Soul

Does not know how to

Tarnish and punish.


He only knows how to

Cry and try, again and again,

To see Divinity's Sun

In humanity's sky.


26. Consolation prize

Finally, the Absolute Supreme

Tells a God-realised Soul:

"My child,

You are My own

Eternity's Vision-Eye

And

You are My own

Immortality's Reality-Heart."


Section three — mine is a God-Dream

27.

Mine is a God-Dream

That can never

Be shattered.


28.

Mine is a God-Dream

That can never

Be even shaken.


29.

Mine is a God-Dream

That never loses

My God-appointment book.


30.

Mine is a God-Dream

That tells me

That my heart's aspiration

Is nothing other than

My life's recreation.


31.

Mine is a God-Dream

That embodies only

The mountain-silence-peace.


32.

Mine is a God-Dream

That only knows

My heart's rising aspiration-sun

And never

My heart's setting aspiration-sun.


33.

Mine is a God-Dream

That is always

Empty of doubt-poison.


34.

Mine is a God-Dream

That is always

Triumphant over

My earthly human fate.


35.

Mine is a God-Dream

That tells me

That it is not our sadness

But our selflessness

That makes us very special

To God.


36.

Mine is a God-Dream

That is, indeed,

My passport to God's

Celestial Country Home.


37.

Mine is a God-Dream

That does not allow

My God-manifestation

Heart-song

To remain unsung.


38.

Mine is a God-Dream

That always finds

My Lord Beloved Supreme

Available

Inside my heart-home.


39.

Mine is a God-Dream

That bravely swims across

The ocean of impossibilities.
