My prayer-life my meditation-heart

Part I

1.1

I pray

That I can teach my mind

Every day.



  1. PLM 1-17. The first 17 prayers in this book were written on 17 September 1981 in New York.

2.

I pray

That I can think

Infinitely more

Of my aspiring friend,

My heart,

Than of my unaspiring

And disappointing enemies:

My lethargic body,

My aggressive vital

And my doubting mind.


3.

I pray

That my life's deaf days

And blind nights

Have ended.


4.

I pray

That I shall never question

My inner captain:

My soul.


5.

I pray

That I may receive

Only God's Love,

Which the entire world

Can neither give me

Nor take away from me.


6.

I pray

That I do not forget

What I have

In my aspiration-world:

Peace.


7.

I pray

That I do not forget

What I am

In my realisation-world:

Love.


8.

I pray

That I remember

Only one thing:

God's Forgiveness

Every day saves me.


9.

I pray

That God's Compassion-Sun

Never hides inside

My mental clouds.


10.

I pray

That I do not overestimate

My love of God.


11.

I pray

That I do not underestimate

God's Love for me.


12.

I pray

That my pride

Will never exploit

God's Compassion-Sea.


13.

I pray

That my impurity

Will never exploit

God's Forgiveness-Sky.


14.

I pray

That I may study

The art of unlearning

Every day

Consciously

And devotedly.


15.

I pray

That I can take off

Every day

Thirty-one minutes

From my mind-factory

To play with

My Beloved Supreme.


16.

I pray

That I do not disappoint

My Beloved Supreme

At the end

Of my journey's close.


17.

I pray

That I make a complete

And unconditional surrender

To my Beloved Supreme

At the very start

Of my Heavenly journey's dawn.


Part II

18.1

My meditation

Is my soul's

Soundless sound-conversation

With my Inner Pilot.



  1. PLM 18-50. These 33 poems on meditation were written on 11 March 1989 in New York.

19.

My meditation

Is my soul's

Most beautiful and most powerful

God-manifestation-dream

On earth.


20.

My meditation

Is my heart's

God-remembrance-silence-joy.


21.

My meditation

Is my heart's

God-Perfection-Satisfaction-song.


22.

My meditation

Is my mind's

Immediate doubt-departure.


23.

My meditation

Is my mind's

Instant ignorance-illumination

And

Bondage-liberation.


24.

My meditation

Is the Everest-summit-

Ascent-expedition

Of my vital.


25.

My meditation

Is the very first

And never, never the last

God-Protection-Shelter

Of my vital.


26.

My meditation

Is the sunrise-smile

Of my body.


27.

My meditation

Is the power-flooded fort

Of my body.


28.

My meditation

Is my life's

Intensity-profundity-

Experience-delight.


29.

My meditation

Is my life's sleepless

Willingness-surrender-gratitude

To my Beloved Supreme.


30.

I meditate and meditate

And meditate

So that I can swim fast,

Very fast,

Against my mind's

Desire-current.


31.

I meditate to fulfil

My blue-gold soul-bird's

God-manifestation-dream

Here on earth.


32.

I meditate to soulfully offer

My purity-heart's

Devotion-tears

And my spontaneity-life's

Dedication-smiles

To my Pilot Supreme.


33.

I meditate so that

I can directly learn

Hundreds of soulful

Heart-offering-songs

From God the Supreme Singer.


34.

I meditate to be

In the loving company

Of my heart's mounting

Aspiration-flames

And my life's spreading

Dedication-fragrance.


35.

During my meditation,

I watch the dangerous fight

Between my mind's

Teeming doubts

And my heart's

Blossoming faith.

To my extreme joy,

My heart always wins.


36.

During my deep meditation,

My soul cuts off

The worthless insecurity-branches

Of my aspiration-life-tree.


37.

My Lord Supreme

Has repeatedly told me

That He will not be able

To treasure my meditation

As long as I have

A complexity-mind,

An insecurity-heart,

A hostility-vital

And

An impurity-body.


38.

My Lord Supreme

Has time and again warned me

That my meditations will be

Complete failures

If I am vehemently strict

With others' imperfections

And extremely indulgent

With my own imperfections.


39.

My soul is telling me

That only during

My soulful meditation

Can it forcefully stop

My wild vital from travelling

On dangerous desire-highways.


40.

My meditation reaches

Its acme of perfection

Only when it sees

God's Compassion-Eye,

God's Forgiveness-Heart

And

God's Protection-Feet.


41.

In the small hours of the morning,

With my heart-purity's

Soulfulness-steps,

I embark on my meditation-journey.


42.

When I unconditionally meditate,

God proudly drives me

In His Concern, Affection, Love

And Fondness-Limousine.


43.

When I unconditionally meditate,

God makes me

His ever-transcending

Dream-Reality's perfection-partner.


44.

When I unconditionally meditate,

God asks me to stand beside Him

While He is watching

His universal creation

From His transcendental

Vision-Balcony.


45.

When I extol myself to the skies,

Because of my stupendous

Success-life,

My meditation-friend-commander

Commands my volcano-pride

To fall dead

At my sweet Lord's

Forgiveness-Feet.


46.

My high meditation says

To my heart,

"Who tells you, my dear friend,

That you are always

Pitifully encaged?

Not true, not true."


47.

My good meditation says

To my mind,

"Who tells you, my dear friend,

That you are always at the mercy

Of venomous doubts?

Not true, not true."


48.

My deep meditation says

To my vital,

"Who tells you, my dear friend,

That you are always wildly enraged?

Not true, not true."


49.

My silent meditation says

To my body,

"Who tells you, my dear friend,

That you are always a victim

To worthless and useless lethargy?

Not true, not true."


50.

When I have

A most illumining meditation,

My Lord Supreme smilingly,

Compassionately and blessingfully

Tells me,

"My child, take anything you want

Free of charge

From My Infinity's Treasure-Shop."


Part III

My prayer says:

"God is great."

My meditation says:

"God is good."

52.

My prayer and God

Cry together.

My meditation and God

Smile at each other.


53.

My prayer is my faith

In God.

My meditation is God's faith

In me.


54.

My prayer says,

"God, where are You?"

My meditation says,

"God, where are You not?"


55.

My prayer tells me

That the road to God

Is sincerity.

My meditation tells me

That the road to God

Is God Himself.


56.

My prayer is God's Concern

For me.

My meditation is my concern

For God.


57.

My prayer is my mind's

Future smile.

My meditation is God's

Present Smile.


58.

When I pray, God asks me

To keep my mouth shut

And open my heart.

When I meditate, God sees

That my heart's door

Is wide open.


59.

My prayer

Is my God-Destination-cry.

My meditation

Is my God-Arrival-smile.
