Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 4

3001

```

My heart’s

Willingness-eagerness-service

To humanity

Is keeping me close to the Feet

Of my Lord Supreme.

```

3002

```

I live in between

My heart’s compassion-rain

And my life’s oneness-gain.

```

3003

```

I play my role by self-giving.

God plays His Role

By Intensity-Joy-becoming.

```

3004

```

How beautiful to look at

When my prayer

Lights a candle of hope

In my heart. ```

3005

```

Goodness

Is oneness-love

In perfect action.

```

3006

```

Do not forget that your heart

Has two devotion-wings.

If you are on them,

You can fly higher than the highest,

Farther than the farthest

And faster than the fastest. ```

3007

```

Cultivate love, devotion

And surrender

Every day, every hour

And every minute

To see your Lord Supreme smile,

Sing and dance

Inside your own heart-garden.

```

3008

```

If you have real love,

Devotion and surrender

To your Master,

Then your life receives

A new name from God Himself:

Sweetness. ```

3009

```

As a lotus gives joy

To my heart and my eyes,

Even so, I would like my very presence

To give joy to my Lord Supreme. ```

3010

```

If you really want to make

The fastest progress,

Then this very moment

Take a solemn oath

That your life will be

A constant and cheerful

Devotion-obedience

To God’s Will. ```

3011

```

Each day is a new opportunity

For us to look at God’s Eye

Devotedly

And to place ourselves at God’s Feet

Self-givingly.

```

3012

```

My Lord, I pray to You

Most soulfully

To bless me with a heart

That will breathe Your Oneness-Smile. ```

3013

```

What is expectation?

Expectation is something that limits us,

Binds us and frustrates us

Far beyond our tolerance-capacity. ```

3014

```

My fear is nothing short of

My unrecognised separation

From God.

```

3015

```

Once we deviate

From our spiritual life,

We fail to stop

Until we have entered into

The abysmal abyss.

```

3016

```

You have to join

The God-aspiration-society

Before you join

The God-manifestation-club. ```

3017

```

My Lord was so sad

To see my heart crying.

He begged my heart

To give Him a smile.

Alas, it was to no avail!

```

3018

```

My humility-heart is embraced

By God’s

Affection-Love-Joy-Pride-Fondness.

```

3019

```

How surprisingly beautiful

Was the sunrise

Of my aspiration-heart!

```

3020

```

How astonishingly peaceful

Is the summit

Of my service-life!

```

3021

```

I thought of placing my sadness

At the Feet of my Lord Supreme.

But He grabbed it and put it

Inside His Heart-Pocket. ```

3022

```

Our dream wants to go up

And touch God’s Feet

Immediately.

```

3023

```

Our reality is afraid of God’s Feet,

And tries to remain

As far away as possible

From God’s Feet. ```

3024

```

If you want to keep

Your spiritual journey

Safe, inspiring, illumining

And fulfilling,

Then you must needs have devotion

All the time. ```

3025

```

There is not a single country

That does not have

God-manifestation-armies.

```

3026

```

The vastness-heart of humility

Immediately welcomes

The head of pride.

```

3027

```

Pride has only one thing

To show humility:

Its thunder-feet.

```

3028

```

After we have seen something,

We try

To believe it.

```

3029

```

After we have felt something,

We try

To become inseparably one

With its reality. ```

3030

```

If we can awaken the slumber

Within us,

Then we can easily claim the world

As our own, very own. ```

3031

```

Human greatness

Does not mean

God-closeness.

```

3032

```

Human beings are good

Only if God

Declares them so.

```

3033

```

Only God-lovers and God-servers

Are God’s

True inheritors.

```

3034

```

Man says to God,

“My Lord,

Please, please deepen Your Love

For me.” ```

3035

```

God says to man,

“My child,

Please, please ripen your need

For Me.” ```

3036

```

A God-seeker says to God,

“My Lord, will my seeking

Ever come to an end?”

```

3037

```

God says to the God-seeker,

“My child,

My seeking and your seeking

Will come to an end together —

If there will be an end at all.”

```

3038

```

Our heart-obedience

Devotedly leads us

To God.

```

3039

```

Our mind-disobedience

Haughtily takes us away

From God.

```

3040

```

What shall I lose through my

God-disobedience?

I shall lose the Beauty

Of God’s Compassion-Eye

And the Fragrance

Of God’s Satisfaction-Heart. ```

3041

```

God-revelation awakens

The human

In us.

```

3042

```

God-manifestation fulfils

The divine

In us.

```

3043

```

Discouragement sets in

When we do not feed

The rainbow-beauty

Of our heart-sky. ```

3044

```

Discouragement sets in

When we stop challenging

The mounting pressures

Of life. ```

3045

```

When we stop feeding

Our heart’s aspiration-flames,

We meet with life’s obstruction-walls

Wherever we go. ```

3046

```

I really do not know

How many kicks

A God-realised soul gets

From the indifference

Of Heaven

And from the heedlessness

Of earth.

```

3047

```

If the Avatar cannot please humanity

In humanity’s own way,

Humanity laughs and laughs at him.

```

3048

```

If the Avatar cannot please Divinity

In Divinity’s own Way,

Divinity becomes extremely sad —

Alas, alas! ```

3049

```

For spiritual seekers,

Ignorance is never bliss,

But always something to be

Bravely conquered

Once and for all.

```

3050

```

A God-realised soul

Is a God-ordained

Compassion-bestower.

```

3051

```

May a new gratitude-flower

Every day blossom

In all its beauty

And fragrance

Inside my heart-garden.

```

3052

```

If you have a devotion-heart,

You always will have a green light

On your life-highway,

And your journey

Will be all safe.

```

3053

```

If you have no devotion to God,

You will have a red light

On your life-highway.

If you go through the red light,

Danger and destruction

Will befriend you. ```

3054

```

When we come to realise

That nobody is insignificant

And each individual is unique

In his own way,

Our Lord reveals His Divinity’s Pride.

```

3055

```

If we truly love Mother Earth,

Then the weight of her children

Will not feel heavy and unbearable.

```

3056

```

Good seekers are destined

To succeed in their spiritual journey

By virtue of their obedience-heart

And surrender-life. ```

3057

```

Bad seekers are destined

To fail in their spiritual journey

Because of their disobedience-mind

And betrayal-life. ```

3058

```

Only on the strength

Of our devotion-magnet

Can we become closer than the closest

To our Lord Supreme. ```

3059

```

If you have devotion,

Then you will receive from God

His most blessingful

And most powerful Embrace. ```

3060

```

If you have devotion,

Then love and surrender

Will gladly accompany you.

```

3061

```

If you use your doubting mind

And not your loving heart,

You will become the world’s

Shameless, number one critic,

And cynicism will garland you.

```

3062

```

When God talks about surrender,

He meets with humanity’s

Immediate inner revolt.

```

3063

```

I want the interdependence

Of the multitude.

I do not need the independence

Of solitude. ```

3064

```

Every day we spend our time

Complaining.

At least for one day,

Can we not try loving —

Loving the world, loving God

And finally, loving ourselves? ```

3065

```

May the fragrance of hope

Cover the length and breadth

Of my heart-garden.

```

3066

```

To live in the house of the mind

And not have any connection

With falsehood

Is an impossible task. ```

3067

```

What I need is a mind

That does not dispute

My soul’s supreme authority.

```

3068

```

What I need is a life

That does not deny

God’s Compassion-Eye.

```

3069

```

Accept your own inner divinity first.

Then it will be extremely easy

For you to accept the divinity

Of others. ```

3070

```

If we can shun the old way of thinking,

Then we will be able to escape

From the battlefields of our mind

And vital. ```

3071

```

My Lord,

I have kept my heart-door wide open.

Is it such a difficult task for You

To blessingfully pay me

A very brief visit?

```

3072

```

If you are wanting in obedience,

Love, devotion and surrender,

Then how do you expect

Your spiritual life to be safe at all? ```

3073

```

Alas, like everything,

Obedience can come and go.

There was a time when he had

God-obedience in abundant measure.

But now obedience has become

A perfect stranger to him. ```

3074

```

One can have God-realisation,

But he can be fated to

An ever-increasing number

Of disobedient disciples. ```

3075

```

God tells each and every seeker

That the life’s obedience

And the heart’s devotion

Are not foreigners,

But natives to the inner world.

```

3076

```

Love

You have cleverly forgotten.

Devotion

You have deliberately forgotten.

That is why poor God

Had to bring obedience-life

Into your aspiration-heart-breath.

```

3077

```

Bring back

Your obedience-devotion-life.

Do not enjoy anymore

Your doubt-suspicion-mind. ```

3078

```

It is so easy

To find God-philosophers.

But to find a God-lover

Is infinitely more difficult

Than we can ever imagine.

```

3079

```

God’s oneness-philosophy

Is the most difficult

For humanity’s mind and vital

To study. ```

3080

```

To God’s greatest sorrow,

Some devotees of His

Who once implicitly believed

In His philosophy

Now feel that it is incorrect

And imperfect. ```

3081

```

If your philosophy is

A carefree self-indulgence-life,

Then it will never fit in with

God’s strict

Discipline-self-giving-philosophy.

```

3082

```

Accept your spiritual life

In a very serious way.

Whatever is bad,

Bravely try to transform.

Whatever is good,

Slowly, steadily and unerringly

Make perfect.

```

3083

```

God tells His seeker-students

That if they do not agree with

His love-devotion-surrender-philosophy,

Then they can definitely exit His School

To enjoy their self-chosen freedom-life.

```

3084

```

O God-doubters,

Do not pollute those

Who love God

And need God desperately. ```

3085

```

Each individual is a God-representative,

Accountable only to God.

If he cannot love, serve

And manifest God wholeheartedly,

Then he is definitely delaying

Humanity’s progress-speed. ```

3086

```

Why do you have to remain

A no-class seeker?

Do you not think

It severely pains God? ```

3087

```

Why do some seekers year after year

Fail to please God?

Because they have added

Negligence and carelessness

To their spiritual life.

```

3088

```

Life’s perfection-bliss

Is the result

Of the heart’s streaming tears.

```

3089

```

Every morning

I place at the Feet

Of my Lord Supreme

A few petals

Of my heart’s flower-smiles.

```

3090

```

A disobedience-seeker

Will be compelled to run

An ultramarathon distance,

Longer than the longest,

To reach his Goal,

In comparison to the shortest distance

Of the obedience-seeker.

```

3091

```

The heart longs for

The ultimate Truth.

The mind is satisfied

With its present friend:

Falsehood.

```

3092

```

O seeker,

At every moment

You find fault with the world

When you see that God

Is not pleased with you.

```

3093

```

Even God’s small talk

Brightens my way,

Lightens my mind

And fulfils my heart. ```

3094

```

In my case,

Before my God-realisation,

God was my Host

And I was His guest.

But now,

I am His host

And He is my Guest.

```

3095

```

A real seeker does not care for

Outer affluence.

He cares only for

Inner assurance. ```

3096

```

To my extreme happiness,

My heart,

You are no longer a victim

To infant insecurity. ```

3097

```

Conquer pride, inner and outer,

To run the fastest

For God-Satisfaction

In His own Way. ```

3098

```

My heart

Has a sleepless need

For aspiration-flight.

```

3099

```

My life

Has a breathless need

For dedication-tide.

```

3100

```

Because I aimlessly think,

I am unable to become

A true citizen

Of the inner world. ```

3101

```

If you are on the spiritual path,

Then at every moment

Try to live inside

God’s Heart-Temple,

Which is your only home.

```

3102

```

Rest assured,

Eventually the divine in you

Will prevail,

The Supreme in you

Will win.

```

3103

```

Because of your sincerity-mind,

God has a special liking

For you.

```

3104

```

Because of your obedience-heart,

God dictates His Will

To you.

```

3105

```

Because of your humility-life,

God takes your service

Day in and day out.

```

3106

```

It is your mind’s readiness,

Your life’s willingness

And your heart’s eagerness

That can make you

A first-class God-seeker.

```

3107

```

O unfortunate seeker,

Your soul every day

Tries to teach you

The universal oneness-philosophy

Of your Lord Supreme,

But you refuse to learn. ```

3108

```

I am absolutely certain

That God will not sail His Boat alone,

For there are many genuine

Aspiration-dedication-passengers. ```

3109

```

Because you are cherishing

Your self-doubt-mind,

Your love-devotion-surrender-heart

Is buried in oblivion. ```

3110

```

Remember, it is the Vision

And the Mission-Life of the Supreme

That we are all carrying

Here on earth. ```

3111

```

Alas, how long will our solemn promise

To God

Remain unfulfilled?

Him to manifest, Him to please

In His own Way,

We came into the world. ```

3112

```

Our Lord Beloved Supreme

Definitely expects, but never demands,

One hundred per cent

Of our loyalty and devoted oneness. ```

3113

```

O impossible God-cynicism-mortals,

You will never succeed

In poisoning the ears and hearts

Of those who are meant for God. ```

3114

```

My heart is desperately trying

To be in the company

Of self-giving God-seeker-passengers

In God’s Golden Boat. ```

3115

```

Why do you need a spiritual Master?

You need a spiritual Master

To carry you into

Your own heart-breath,

To watch and enjoy

Its exceptional love of God. ```

3116

```

A sincere seeker cannot imagine

There can ever be two ways.

He is absolutely certain

That God’s Way is the only way. ```

3117

```

You will drown

In the sea of ignorance

If you keep one foot

In God’s Boat

And one foot in your own

Self-styled boat. ```

3118

```

Once you have accepted the spiritual life

With all the sincerity at your command,

Then it is a real insult

To your own soul, to your own Master

And to your own Lord Beloved Supreme

If you worry about your future.

After all,

Are you not supposed to have placed

Your past, present and future

In their hands? ```

3119

```

If you once saw Light

On your spiritual journey,

But now do not see it,

Then you have definitely made friends

With darkness,

Either consciously or unconsciously. ```

3120

```

A false seeker

Definitely is responsible

For his own future.

But a real seeker

Is not responsible,

For his future is in God’s Hands.

Remembering this, he has only

To smile, sing and dance. ```

3121

```

For me there was, there is

And there forever will be

Only one real world:

My God-obedience-

Love-devotion-surrender-world.

```

3122

```

When my heart sings

God’s Victory-Songs,

God tells me,

“My son, you are creating

My Heaven-Heart-Life

On earth.” ```

3123

```

In a soulful consciousness

Blossoms

A very deep meditation.

```

3124

```

Your disbelief

Can never be the real judge

Of your Master’s God-realisation.

If you believe in his God-realisation,

Then be in his boat.

If not, find your own boat. ```

3125

```

Those who keep their hearts open

Will always hear God’s all-illumining

And all-fulfilling Messages.

```

3126

```

Strengthen your heart’s capacity

If you want to diminish

Your ego-necessity.

```

3127

```

If you give God

Your mind’s readiness, willingness

And eagerness,

Plus everything that you have and are,

Then God will unmistakably tell you

That He is for you,

Only for you.

```

3128

```

When you listen only to God,

God captures you

In His Compassion-Heart-Net.

```

3129

```

If your heart’s light

Runs through the darkness

Of your mind,

Then even your questioning mind

Will be able to fly in the sky

Of the Beyond. ```

3130

```

Nobody can really

Satisfy himself

Without satisfying God first.

```

3131

```

The God-realisation-dream

Is not above my head,

But inside my heart.

```

3132

```

A prayerful heart-singer

Is, indeed,

A God-harbinger.

```

3133

```

No matter how undivine we are,

God still wants us

To claim His Compassion-Eye

As our very own. ```

3134

```

No matter how hostile

Some human beings are,

God’s Forgiveness-Heart

Will never be able to leave them. ```

3135

```

No matter where

An unfortunate seeker goes,

Even if he enters into

The abysmal abyss,

God’s streaming Tears

Will accompany him. ```

3136

```

Only an aspiration-heart

Can correctly answer the question:

“Why are we here on earth?”

```

3137

```

God Himself gave me

My gratitude-heart,

And He expects me

To return it to Him safely. ```

3138

```

Our heart invokes

And our mind disregards

The same thing:

God’s Compassion. ```

3139

```

My Lord, can You not guide me

Right from the very start?

“My child, can you not prove to Me

That you have implicit faith in Me

Right from the very start?”

```

3140

```

Peace

Is the ultimate achievement

Of the whole world.

```

3141

```

Faith is the power

Behind our desire-success

And our aspiration-progress.

```

3142

```

Every morning

I am deeply touched

By angelic inspiration

From the rising sun

And the rainbow-sky.

```

3143

```

My mind,

With all its mistakes,

Is taking shelter

In oblivion-cave. ```

3144

```

At every moment,

A seeker must guard himself

Against doubt-destruction-thoughts.

```

3145

```

How I wish to remain forever

A perfect slave

To my aspiration-necessity.

```

3146

```

To rise above our own miseries,

We must sleeplessly live in

Our God-faith-heart.

```

3147

```

I am ready to chant God’s Name

Even a million times

To glimpse a tiny ray

Of God-Satisfaction-hope

In my heart.

```

3148

```

My sleeplessly self-giving

Gratitude-heart

Has delighted God

Beyond measure. ```

3149

```

My soul every day tells my heart

That my heart came into existence

Only to execute God’s Will

With no delay whatsoever. ```

3150

```

Our mind’s mere belief in God

Is not strong enough

To set our life free.

What we need

Is an adamantine faith-heart.

```

3151

```

God’s Compassion-Eye

Can easily read

Infinitely more than our aspiration-heart

Can ever write. ```

3152

```

The outer world is ruled

By the power

Of human thought.

```

3153

```

The inner world is guided

By the Love

Of Divine Will.

```

3154

```

The whispers of God

Enrapture

My aspiration-heart

And dedication-life. ```

3155

```

It seems that earthly friendship

Will always remain

More fragile than a mirror.

```

3156

```

There was a time when my life

Was the music of a drum.

Now my life has become

The melody of a flute. ```

3157

```

Name, fame and glory

Are riches

Bound by limits.

```

3158

```

Aspiration-dedication

And love-devotion-surrender

Can go far beyond

The farther than the farthest boundaries. ```

3159

```

In his aspiration-heart

And dedication-life,

A man of spirituality

Has everything to gain

Both for God and for himself.

```

3160

```

Calamities, calamities!

Is there anybody

Who can rid himself

Of calamities within

And without?

```

3161

```

How difficult it is

For the soul

To liberate the heart

That is locked in insecurity-grip. ```

3162

```

Our outer belief

Determines

Our true love of God.

```

3163

```

Our inner faith

Determines

Our God-manifestation-courage.

```

3164

```

My aspiration-heart

Never visits

My mind’s pride-fed ego-house.

```

3165

```

O my heart,

I know you love me.

But tell me,

When will you start inspiring me

To go to God’s

Compassion-flooded Shore? ```

3166

```

The more I surrender

To God’s Will,

The sooner I become

The God-race winner. ```

3167

```

If you self-givingly love God,

You will be able to swim and swim

Inside God’s Heart-Ocean,

And never drown. ```

3168

```

O world,

Your imperial pride

First confuses me

And then amuses me

In abundant measure.

```

3169

```

The seeker’s progress-journey

Will never come to an end

For God always sings ceaselessly

Inside the seeker’s heart. ```

3170

```

In the world of ignorance-night,

God calls you by your real name:

Hero supreme.

```

3171

```

God cries and cries

And laughs and laughs

At the same time,

When a seeker

Is unbelievably afraid

Of losing his life’s

Fleeting earth-bound pleasure-mind.

```

3172

```

The masterpiece of life

Is founded upon

The seeker’s self-giving heart.

```

3173

```

May my aspiration-heart

Sleeplessly and breathlessly

Long for God.

```

3174

```

O my doubting mind,

I am now my indomitable will

To challenge you and illumine you

Once and for all. ```

3175

```

My Lord-Employer

Is extremely strict

With my punctuality and regularity,

But is unimaginably generous

With His Compassion-Affection-

Love-Salary. ```

3176

```

I just learned the happiest news

Of my life!

God has finally accepted

My heart’s aspiration-application. ```

3177

```

God the Teacher

Asks me most difficult questions

In the outer life,

But God the Tutor

Immediately whispers the answers.

```

3178

```

Salvation denies those

Who forcefully demand

And proudly expect it.

```

3179

```

Salvation embraces those

Who breathlessly need it

And know no expectation.

```

3180

```

His spiritual progress report:

One step on the Heaven-road,

One hundred steps on the hell-highway.

```

3181

```

Only aspiration-chariots

Are invited to participate

In the heart-races.

```

3182

```

May a Compassion-Glance

From my Lord Supreme

Envelop my very existence on earth.

```

3183

```

We must alter the course

Of our fate

If that is the divine necessity

In our life. ```

3184

```

Each heart-singer

Is a new harbinger

Of God-Delight on earth.

```

3185

```

I am not for

A computer-mind.

I am all for

A lover-heart. ```

3186

```

The smile of my flower-heart

Has awakened in me

The peace of the Beyond.

```

3187

```

My Lord,

To You I come

With my sorrowful eyes.

To me You give

Your bountiful Heart.

```

3188

```

My morning prayers

Are made of my heart’s love

For my Lord Supreme.

```

3189

```

When I offer my fragrance-heart

To my Lord Supreme,

I reach my soul’s

Mountain-pinnacle-heights. ```

3190

```

My aspiration is

My heart’s climbing cry

To reach my Lord’s

Compassion-Feet. ```

3191

```

Whenever I have even a moment

Of aspiration,

I feel this world of ours

Is definitely the Heart-Garden

Of our Lord Supreme.

```

3192

```

I want my heart’s path

To sleeplessly

Lead inward.

```

3193

```

I want my mind’s path

To stop

Going backward.

```

3194

```

I want my soul’s path

To go upward,

Higher than the highest,

For my Lord Supreme to travel. ```

3195

```

My God-loving surrender is the bridge Between my darkness-mind

And my happiness-heart. ```

3196

```

The seeker has to be

Fired with determination

Every day

To manifest God’s Will here on earth. ```

3197

```

Yesterday’s accomplishments

Are definitely meant

For yesterday only.

```

3198

```

Today’s accomplishments

Are opening a new road

To Heaven’s ecstasy-flooded height.

```

3199

```

My Lord’s blooming faith in me

Is, indeed, the result

Of His infinite Patience-Light.

```

3200

```

A self-giving life

Is the result

Of our soul-delight.

```

3201

```

The ascent

Of my aspiration-heart

Is the descent

Of my ego-mind. ```

3202

```

When we aspire

And feel exquisite happiness

In the depths of our heart,

It clearly indicates that

God’s Hour

Is fast approaching us. ```

3203

```

O seeker,

God needs no reminder.

He will definitely abide by

His Promise to you. ```

3204

```

Nobody can ever close

The door

Of God’s Heart-Home.

```

3205

```

If I sing heart-songs,

That means God has already chosen me

To sing God-songs as well.

```

3206

```

O my heart,

I want you to increase

The life span

Of your God-manifestation-promise. ```

3207

```

No matter when you start,

If sincerity looms large

In your aspiration,

Then you will meet with

God’s smiling Eye.

```

3208

```

The ancient question mark of life:

Does God really have any Concern

For me?

```

3209

```

If you can remember your Goal

Even in your stark adversity,

Then you will be able

To drive your life-car the fastest

On your divinity’s highway.

```

3210

```

Every day I am inspired

To pilot my Golden Boat

With God-hungry hearts.

```

3211.

```

Every day I need

My heart’s faith-invocation

To repel

My mind’s doubt-invasion. ```

3212

```

Man’s unrevealed capacity

Is the yet-unmanifested Reality

Of God.

```

3213

```

O my mind,

Surrender yourself to the Light

For your illumination,

Long before the world of darkness

Attacks you.

```

3214

```

O seeker,

Wherever you go,

Keep always with you

Your heart’s faith-flashlight. ```

3215

```

The stupidity of the mind

Knows no bounds!

It even tries to bind God’s Infinity

With its poor imagination-flights. ```

3216

```

Every morning try to sing

A heart-song.

It will give your life a new meaning.

```

3217

```

Do not allow fear

To claim your heart

As its own home.

```

3218

```

Alas, mine is the Goal

That is completely lost

Behind the mirage

Of the darkness-past. ```

3219

```

Do not allow your mind

To drive you through

Dark depression-tunnels,

For these tunnels have no end. ```

3220

```

Those who hear God’s

Whisper-Messages

Try to preserve the beauty

And fragrance

Of those Messages.

```

3221

```

God’s Compassion-Eye

And His Forgiveness-Heart

Come to me

Not only unannounced,

But also unnoticed.

```

3222

```

I must fly far beyond the mist

Of my failure-life

To manifest my inner divinity.

```

3223

```

It is quite easy for a human being

To live between

Self-congratulation and ego-indulgence.

```

3224

```

We must confront

The disobedience-mind consciously

To prove our absolute loyalty

To our Lord Supreme. ```

3225

```

Even when we stand face-to-face

With God’s Justice,

We feel God’s Compassion

Inside the heart of God’s Justice. ```

3226

```

Unless we have full control

Over our unruly and doubting mind,

We cannot bring to the fore

All our goodness-qualities. ```

3227

```

God knows our frailties,

But He also shows us

How to conquer them

For His complete Satisfaction. ```

3228

```

My Lord,

Do give me the capacity

To capsize my doubt-mind-boat

Once and for all. ```

3229

```

We can enter into anybody’s

Heart-garden.

There is no fee.

```

3230

```

When I commanded my mind

To observe silence,

My Lord showed me immediately

His huge relief. ```

3231

```

My Lord,

May my prayer-heart

Climb up to the skies

To touch Your Forgiveness-Feet

Every day.

```

3232

```

Not my calculation-mind

But my devotion-heart

Has a free access

To my Lord’s Heart-Home. ```

3233

```

My Lord,

If only I could see the world

Through Your Eyes,

I am sure I would see the world

As absolutely perfect.

```

3234

```

My Lord,

I need only one Boon from You:

I wish to sing my heart-songs

Right at Your Feet

For Eternity.

```

3235

```

Where do I live?

I live in the Compassion, Affection

And Protection-Lap

Of my Lord Beloved Supreme. ```

3236

```

My Lord,

Your Eye is my path,

Your Heart is my journey’s Destination.

```

3237

```

My Lord is so pleased with me

Because I keep my heart open

To His constant Silence-Whispers.

```

3238

```

Eternity’s Silence-Eye

Gives birth

To Infinity’s sound-life.

```

3239

```

Have a new mind and an old heart

Every day

To please your Lord Supreme.

```

3240

```

Is there anything

That does not come

From Silence?

```

3241

```

Is there anything

Humanity cannot accomplish

With a silence-heart?

```

3242

```

Sleeplessly and breathlessly

I climb up

To see the Eye

Of my Lord Beloved Supreme. ```

3243

```

I dive deep

To place my very existence

At the Feet

Of my Lord Beloved Supreme. ```

3244

```

Enlightenment is a far cry

For the self-imposed

Solitary confinement-seeker.

```

3245

```

God’s temporary absence

From my heart

Literally kills me.

I do not know what will happen

If ever I shall have to brook

His long absence. ```

3246

```

Far away, far away,

O my restless mind,

I shall keep you.

I shall become

My heart’s nectar-silence-delight.

```

3247

```

O where is my dream-boat,

O where is my dream-boat-Pilot, where?

O where is my purity-heart’s

Ever-blossoming garden? ```

3248

```

O my Father Lord Supreme,

Today I shall worship Your Feet

With my tearful eyes and cheerful heart.

Today I shall definitely please You

In Your own Way.

```

3249

```

Total transformation

I want from my life.

Therefore, sleepless prayers

And breathless meditations

I need.

```

3250

```

I am entering into the silence-clime,

I am.

Smiling, I long to please

Each and every citizen of the world. ```

3251

```

You have just come back

From visiting God.

How is it that your face and eyes

Are still the same?

Alas, you carry the message

Of the unchangeable! ```

3252

```

When we strive for

God the Creator,

God the creation

Thrives for us. ```

3253

```

You can easily remain close to God

If you want to,

Even if you are in confusion-mart.

```

3254

```

Let me ask God for His Help

In everything that I do and say.

If He does not help me,

Then who can and who will? ```

3255

```

If you do not put an end

To your anxieties, worries,

Fears and doubts,

Then you will get an invitation

From the despair-confines.

```

3256

```

A spiritual Master is he

Who assures his disciples

That their inner progress

And outer success

Can be made much faster.

```

3257

```

Every day God comes to us

With a new supply of happiness.

But alas, we pay no attention!

```

3258

```

When his ego

Was totally smashed,

He started singing

Devotion-flooded heart-songs. ```

3259

```

When life faces realities,

It is all tragedy.

When life stays in

The dreamland and moonland,

It is all comedy.

```

3260

```

God wants us to quench His Thirst

And feed His Hunger

With our gratitude-heart-blossoms.

```

3261

```

It is absolutely useless

To repent our past blunders.

We must go forward, fly upward

And dive inward

If we want to place ourselves

At the Feet of God. ```

3262

```

We must quench our God-thirst

With our heart’s

Blossoming smiles.

```

3263

```

My life, come back from

Your self-styled retirement.

Let us try once more

For satisfaction-enlightenment. ```

3264

```

God can easily take a body

And walk among us.

But where is our heart’s

Sleepless and breathless inner cry

To recognise Him when He comes?

```

3265

```

Even our happiest days

Are no match

For God’s Fondness-Smile.

```

3266

```

When the body, vital and mind

Are invited by God,

Even God is shocked

By their wild misbehaviour. ```

3267

```

When the disciples deeply miss

The physical presence of their Master,

The Master unmistakably misses

The inner presence of his disciples. ```

3268

```

May all my heart-songs

Have only one note:

Devotion.

```

3269

```

Parting sorrows

Are more powerful

Than welcoming joys.

```

3270

```

The mind displays

A wide variety of tricks

To get God-Attention.

```

3271

```

When the doubting mind

Wants to enter into your heart,

Immediately, unmistakably

And categorically

Say “No!”

```

3272

```

The more I understand

Why my life

Is fettered by ignorance-bondage,

The more I blame

My world-possession-desire-life.

```

3273

```

Each uncomely thought

Is a most serious stumbling block.

This is what our aspiration-life

Must unmistakably realise. ```

3274

```

Readiness, willingness, eagerness

And self-givingness:

These four virtues

Are the relay runners

In our spiritual life.

```

3275

```

We are asking the outer world

To give us peace,

Which it does not have at all,

Instead of entering into our

Prayer and meditation-life,

Which definitely has and is peace. ```

3276

```

I can be happy and perfect

Only by reminding myself

All the time

That I belong only to God,

And never to myself.

```

3277

```

The power of my aspiration-heart

Always protects me

From my disobedience-attacks.

```

3278

```

My aspiring heart

Is always at home

In the inner world.

Therefore, my Lord’s Joy

Knows no bounds.

```

3279

```

My desiring mind

Is always out

Roaming the world

Of temptation-frustration.

Therefore, my Lord Supreme

Is doomed to disappointment. ```

3280

```

No matter how long

We have been in the world

Of our self-chosen ignorance-night,

We are never, never God-forsaken. ```

3281

```

When I devotedly appreciate, admire,

Adore and love my Lord’s

Compassion-Forgiveness-Feet,

My Lord says, “My child,

I now definitely can claim you

As My own.” ```

3282

```

When I go to God’s Palace

With my streaming devotion-tears,

God Himself opens up

His own Heart-Gate. ```

3283

```

Each and every

God-obedience-thought

Is, indeed, indomitable.

```

3284

```

My Lord,

There is only one thing of Yours

That frightens me,

And that is Your Indifference-Eye. ```

3285

```

My Lord repeatedly tells me

That I must not surrender my life

To my confusion-dissatisfaction-mind.

```

3286

```

The faith-blooms in my mind

And gratitude-blossoms in my heart

Are satisfying my Lord Supreme

Far more than I could ever imagine. ```

3287

```

An ideal disciple

Cheerfully and self-givingly places

The heaviest burdens

Of his past, present and future

At his Master’s feet.

```

3288

```

My Lord, forgive me!

I do not remember

Why I called You.

“My child, you called Me

To replace your desire-life

With an aspiration-heart.” ```

3289

```

It pains my Lord so severely

When I pray to Him to come to me

With His Compassion-Heart,

And to go

To the rest of the world’s citizens

With His Justice-Mind. ```

3290

```

My Lord Himself has shocked my mind

And sealed my mouth

So that I can enjoy the beauty

Of His Infinity’s Silence-Light. ```

3291

```

If you believe in your Inner Pilot

And can listen to His Dictates,

Then you do not have to cross oceans

To find an outer Master. ```

3292

```

When I do not pray and meditate,

My indifference to Mother Earth

Does not allow me to know

What is going on with her.

But when I pray and meditate

Regularly and devotedly,

I see and become the bleeding heart

Of Mother Earth. ```

3293

```

God tells me

That my life will attain perfection

If I can juggle prosperity’s smiles

And adversity’s tears

At the same time.

```

3294

```

If there is an actual contest

Between the doubting minds

And the aspiring hearts,

In most cases the doubting minds

Will win a sweeping victory.

```

3295

```

Two dividing minds

Challenge each other

And strangle each other.

```

3296

```

Two aspiring hearts

Embrace each other

And need each other.

```

3297

```

If you have soaring aspiration

In your heart,

Then your outer life will be filled

With glowing elation. ```

3298

```

When I am my desire-life,

I see right in front of me

And all around me

God’s Concern-Eye,

But God’s Satisfaction-Heart

Is nowhere to be found. ```

3299

```

Our heart’s indomitable courage

Is definitely meant for the illumination

Of our mind’s ignorance-night.

```

3300

```

Today I have kept

My heart-door wide open

To welcome

All God-fulfilling promises. ```

3301

```

If we do not practise detachment

In our day-to-day life,

Then our eyes shall not be able

To escape streaming tears. ```

3302

```

Life on earth is shorter than the shortest.

Then how is it

That we take upon ourselves

Unnecessary burdens?

Only one responsibility we have:

God-satisfaction for God’s sake. ```

3303

```

There is no end to our folly!

We pride ourselves on our physical,

Vital and mental achievements.

Do we not know that these achievements

Will invariably mingle with the dust?

```

3304

```

I pray and pray

Only to dance the dance

Of God-satisfaction

In my aspiration-heart. ```

3305

```

If you want to offer unalloyed love

To your Lord Supreme,

Just use your heart,

And keep your head at the farthest corner

Of the globe.

```

3306

```

Every day

My heart and my Lord’s Heart

Write love letters to each other.

My heart overflows.

I am sure His does, too.

```

3307

```

My Lord’s Compassion-Eye

Never stops,

Not even for a fleeting second.

```

3308

```

My rejection-mind

Never stops.

Ceaseless it is.

```

3309

```

My mind-meditation

Sadly

Stops and stops.

```

3310

```

My heart-meditation

Bravely

Soars and soars.

```

3311

```

My mind-prayers work so hard

To receive favours from God,

Yet God remains heedless.

```

3312

```

My heart-prayers work spontaneously,

Effortlessly and selflessly

To receive favours from God.

Answers come immediately

In the affirmative.

```

3313

```

The mind wants to live

Independent of everything,

Including God.

```

3314

```

The heart wants to remain

Independent of everything,

Save and except God.

```

3315

```

God wants me to feel

His Oneness-Heart

And not understand

His Vastness-Mind,

Never!

```

3316

```

I want God to understand

My misunderstood mind

And feel my neglected heart.

```

3317

```

Heaven smilingly touches

Earth’s heart and says,

“Stop crying!”

```

3318

```

Earth devotedly touches

Heaven’s Eye and says,

“Start smiling!”

```

3319

```

I ask God if He still remembers

When we met for the first time,

Since I have totally forgotten.

```

3320

```

God tells me that He also

Has completely forgotten

When we met for the first time,

But He is more than eager

To have another meeting.

```

3321

```

I pray to God

To give me the capacity

Forever to remain

At His Forgiveness-Feet. ```

3322

```

God tells me

That He is willing to sanction

My prayer,

Provided I pray in a different way.

He wants me to pray

To please His Compassion-Heart. ```

3323

```

Alas,

So many unnecessary problems

Orbit around

Our ego-mind. ```

3324

```

When you write God

Your love-devotion-surrender-letters,

Do not edit them.

Your heart’s first, spontaneous

Aspiration-cries

Are of paramount importance. ```

3325

```

In a true seeker’s life,

A moment with God

Is an experience

That forever lasts. ```

3326

```

Have you heard the latest news?

Peace

Has been unanimously elected

As ruler of the mind-world. ```

3327

```

God lives happily and proudly

Inside my soul’s smiles

And my heart’s tears.

```

3328

```

God loves to play everywhere,

Even inside

Our unsearching mind.

```

3329

```

Alas, for such a long time

I have been trying to illumine

My heart’s darkness-despair-night.

```

3330

```

God employs

Each and every heart

To work lovingly and soulfully

Inside His Heart-Garden. ```

3331

```

The world-responsibility

That you accept cheerfully

Is preparatory to a higher

And deeper life. ```

3332

```

I am so excited and delighted

That God Himself has chosen me

To be a preschool student

In His own Heart-School. ```

3333

```

O seeker, can you not see

That God the Inner Runner

Is waiting for you to start the race?

If you just start,

He will happily and proudly

Do the rest

To complete the race for you.

```

3334

```

O my mind’s insincerity,

O my heart’s impurity,

O my life’s disobedience,

Do you think I am blind?

Do you think I am deaf?

Do you think I am dumb? ```

3335

```

Poor God!

He resorts to love

When the mind

Deliberately misbehaves. ```

3336

```

If you have a prayerful

And soulful life,

Then you can always

Accompany truth everywhere. ```

3337

```

My heart’s real friend is faith.

How I wish my mind also

To have the same friend!

```

3338

```

Your heart’s genuine aspiration

Must never surrender

To your mind’s wild desperation.

```

3339

```

All you do is pretend

That you are excellent in everything

That you say and do.

Poor God is working so hard

To inject sincerity

Into your heart, mind and life. ```

3340

```

My heart’s love

Of God

Is absolutely real.

```

3341

```

My mind’s deliberate rejection

Of God

Is most painfully real.

```

3342

```

O my mind,

God has come so many times

To visit you,

But you always hide.

This is really making Him angry.

```

3343

```

O my sleeping body,

O my strangling vital,

O my doubting mind,

O my fearing heart,

You stupidity incarnates!

How long do you think

God will wait and wait

And wait for you? ```

3344

```

Like my heart,

My mind also has to be

A fountain of prayers

Before I can dream of placing myself

At the Feet of my Lord Supreme.

```

3345

```

By every means,

I must stop for good

My life’s attachment-journey.

```

3346

```

Today I am so proud

Of my mind, vital and body,

For they all have bowed

To my Lord Supreme most devotedly. ```

3347

```

Instead of pretending

That you know everything

And you are everything,

Just start attending

God’s Compassion-Heart-School.

Soon you will really know everything,

And really become everything.

```

3348

```

My Lord, if I have a greatness-mind,

A goodness-heart

And a selflessness-life,

Will that be enough?

“My child, more than enough,

More than enough!” ```

3349

```

Now I know why God

Has never accepted the prayers

Of my mind.

They are all full of insincerity

And impurity.

```

3350

```

The outer school gives us

Machine-made

Mind-diplomas.

```

3351

```

The inner school gives us

God’s own Heart-made

Pride-diplomas.

```

3352

```

I do not intend

To give up groping

For the Truth —

Never! ```

3353

```

God does not want

To give up hoping

That I will find the Truth —

Never! ```

3354

```

The spiritual life,

Which is God’s own Life,

Is not for the weak

And the unwilling. ```

3355

```

Once God starts pouring

His Compassion-Light into someone,

His philosophy

Does not allow Him to stop. ```

3356

```

Nobody can escape

The battlefield of life.

Therefore, the wise thing to do

Is to fight hard and gloriously win. ```

3357

```

I pray to God

To bless me

With His Universal Oneness.

```

3358

```

God prays to me to give Him

My sincere readiness,

My sincere willingness

And my sincere eagerness. ```

3359

```

I am absolutely sure

That my life-river

Will one day rush

Into my soul’s illumination-sea. ```

3360

```

My Lord, I am fully prepared

To lose the world,

As long as I can accompany You,

Only You.

“My child, if you really accompany Me,

Then you will see the rest of the world

Right inside Me.”

```

3361

```

Quite true, quite true, quite true:

God was, God is and God will forever be

For you.

```

3362

```

Love and joy can live everywhere,

But they prefer to live

In the smiles of a sweetness-heart.

```

3363

```

O my eagerness-heart,

Be grateful to my soul’s

Fulness-height.

```

3364

```

Mankind’s transformation-life

Without a God-invocation-heart

Is simply impossible.

```

3365

```

The gratitude-heart-committee

Has shockingly few

Members.

```

3366

```

O Lord Supreme,

I may one day know who You are,

But I shall never know

How vast Your Forgiveness is. ```

3367

```

God’s Radiance can dance

Only in the seeker’s

Devotion-heart-eyes.

```

3368

```

As long as God has faith in me

And I have faith in God,

I do not have to worry

If the rest of the world

Has faith in me.

```

3369

```

Today, O my Lord Supreme,

I really feel

That You are my Eternity’s All.

“My child, look what I am doing!

I am dusting off

Your ignorance-dirt

Blessingfully, happily and proudly.”

```

3370

```

Today my soul has given me

Two new names:

Obedience-beauty

And surrender-fragrance. ```

3371

```

My Lord,

Let me love You only,

Let me serve You only,

Let my aspiration-flames

Fly only towards You.

```

3372

```

Today both my inner life

And my outer life

Are thirsting for the fount

Of God-Satisfaction. ```

3373

```

It is we who decide

Whether we shall arrive at God’s Feet

Through countless mistakes,

Or through the path of faith, obedience,

Love, devotion and surrender.

```

3374

```

We can never separate

The Master’s teachings

From the immortal Delight

Of the supernal Light. ```

3375

```

Real aspiration

Only lives

In God-gratitude-home.

```

3376

```

Each time I cultivate a good thought

In my mind,

I immediately see, feel and become

A fountain of joy. ```

3377

```

God’s Forgiveness-Feet

And God’s Compassion-Eye

Can at once be sought and caught.

```

3378

```

My Lord asks me

To smile and smile and smile —

To smile within and smile without —

For He is making me

A citizen of His Heart-Country.

```

3379

```

My Lord listens to all my prayers,

Save and except one:

“May I be worthy of

Your Leadership-Eye and Feet.”

My Lord corrects my prayer

And tells me to pray to Him

For His Friendship-Hands instead.

```

3380

```

I say to God:

“My Lord, Your Forgiveness-Feet

Are so beautiful.”

My Lord’s immediate

Compassion-Response:

“My child, your heart’s aspiration-eyes

Are so lovable.”

```

3381

```

O God-fear, enough of you!

Today I am determined

To tear your body

Into millions of pieces. ```

3382

```

The inner wisdom

And the outer knowledge

Must sing one, only one, mantra:

God-dependence. ```

3383

```

There was a time

When my heart was beautiful,

My eyes were beautiful

And everything that I had was beautiful.

But now my life is totally empty

Of beauty

Because I have allowed my mind

To enjoy doubt-meals. ```

3384

```

My negativity-mind faded

Into nothingness

When I invoked God

On the strength of my full

Openness-heart.

```

3385

```

My Lord,

When You and I are talking,

May I be allowed

To change my name to gratitude? ```

3386

```

Alas,

Why do I always see my doubting mind

Chasing my happiness-heart?

Can I not see something

Really inspiring and illumining?

```

3387

```

I know I shall be perfect

Only when I cannot separate my mind

From the beauty of my prayers

And my heart

From the fragrance of my meditations.

```

3388

```

There is only one supreme necessity

In my life,

And that necessity is to hasten

My Godward journey. ```

3389

```

Blessed is he

Whose heart is an express train

Journeying towards

God-Satisfaction-Station. ```

3390

```

A God-devotion-heart

Is made of God’s

Own Sweetness-Bliss.

```

3391

```

My meditation-eye not only sees

The Beauty of God’s Face,

But also embraces

The Duty of God’s Life. ```

3392

```

There shall come a time

When my doubting mind

Will be terribly afraid

Of standing between

My climbing aspiration-heart

And my Lord’s smiling Compassion-Eye. ```

3393

```

My Lord,

May every morning come to me

As a beautiful, sweet

And unexpected Blessing

From You.

```

3394

```

Life is for self-giving action,

And this action we have to offer

Devotedly

To our own Inner Pilot. ```

3395

```

My aspiration-heart-bird

Has two special wings

With two special names:

Obedience and gratitude. ```

3396

```

My heart asked my life

To follow.

My life followed.

Where are they now?

They are now dancing inside

God’s smiling Eye. ```

3397

```

Love, devotion and surrender

Are divine virtues

That do not have to remain always hidden

Inside our heart.

They can be brought to the fore

And marshalled for God-Victory. ```

3398

```

The dream of science

Is not my problem.

No, not at all!

```

3399

```

Scientists’

Misconduct-behaviour

Is my very serious problem.

```

3400

```

A mind-talker

I deplorably was.

A heart-giver

I am and I shall

Forever remain.

```

3401

```

O my life,

You and I must obey

God’s Commands

Immediately, happily and proudly. ```

3402

```

O my life,

You and I must disregard and discard

All absurd demands

Of our mind and our vital. ```

3403

```

The soul comes to the fore

And tells the darkness-mind,

“Come home, come home!

For such a long time

I have been waiting for you.”

```

3404

```

Every day my Lord Supreme asks me

To keep my mind under control

And to live inside my heart,

But alas, every day I fail! ```

3405

```

Alas, my mind-piano

Has only three keys:

Expectation, frustration and destruction.

```

3406

```

Start!

You will be able to reach the Highest.

Stop!

You will be forced to become

A citizen of the lowest.

```

3407

```

Doubt enters into belief

In total disguise

To ruin belief and destroy aspiration.

Belief enters into doubt

To illumine doubt

For God-worship. ```

3408

```

For a heart of sincere longing,

No distance is too far

To travel.

```

3409

```

I come to God

With my heart’s

Newness-bloom.

```

3410

```

God comes to me

With His Heart’s

Fulness-Blossoms.

```

3411

```

It is not easy,

But we must tame and train

Our old, unwilling thoughts

For a higher life

And richer achievement

In the inner world. ```

3412

```

Your soul wants to live

Inside your heart

To illumine your heart.

But you are forcing your soul

To live behind your heart

And meet with constant frustrations. ```

3413

```

I call it

My humility-mind.

God calls it

His greatest utility-instrument. ```

3414

```

God does not want you

To imitate your soul.

He only wants you

To fly with your soul

Wherever it flies.

```

3415

```

Without being asked,

The inner meditation

Will perfectly answer

The outer questions,

Even those unasked.

```

3416

```

Each incarnation

Is a golden opportunity

To love

God’s Lotus-Feet

And manifest

God’s all-fulfilling Dreams. ```

3417

```

Depression silences

The dynamism

Of the vital.

```

3418

```

Depression delays indefinitely

The forward journey

Of the mind.

```

3419

```

Depression paralyses

The life-energy

Of the body.

```

3420

```

Each self-offering moment

Of my life

Beams with God-Delight.

```

3421

```

Be not afraid of self-transcendence.

God’s own breathing Life

Is smiling and singing

Inside it. ```

3422

```

God gives me the Beauty

Of His Compassion-Eye.

I give God the tears

Of my gratitude-heart. ```

3423

```

My aspiration-heart

Follows God’s Compassion-Eye

From world to world.

```

3424

```

God’s Forgiveness-Feet

Follow my doubting mind

From world to world.

```

3425

```

What is faith?

It is a divine achievement

Of our heart

That outlasts everything undivine

In us.

```

3426

```

My heart has been waiting

For years and years

For my mind to enjoy

A God-surrender-moment.

And now, finally,

It has been achieved. ```

3427

```

God wants me to collect

Only my heart’s surrender-songs,

And no other songs,

To sing for Him. ```

3428

```

Alas,

I never realised

That my life’s failure-sadness

Could be so powerful. ```

3429

```

O God,

What have I done wrong

That I am again thrown into

My mind-prison? ```

3430

```

God tells me that every moment

Is a choice hour

For me to please Him

In His own Way. ```

3431

```

We get angry with God

Without any rhyme or reason,

And do not want to pardon Him.

But God never abandons us. ```

3432

```

God, since I am sincerely tired

Of thinking in my own way,

Can You not show me

Your Way of thinking?

Who knows,

Perhaps I shall be extremely happy. ```

3433

```

God, the pride of my division-mind

Is torturing my heart ruthlessly.

I am begging You for a replacement:

Humility. ```

3434

```

It seems that both God and I

Are hoping against hope.

When I think of my God-satisfaction,

It is nothing short of hoping against hope.

When God thinks of my perfection-life,

It is, indeed, the same. ```

3435

```

I see fertile receptivity

In my mind-field

Only when I scatter

Some dust of my Lord’s Feet. ```

3436

```

In every way

My life becomes prosperous

When I entirely depend on God

In my inner life of aspiration

And in my outer life of dedication.

```

3437

```

In every way

My life becomes totally disastrous

When I proudly claim to be

The owner of my life. ```

3438

```

This morning

God came to his soul and said:

“What are you doing?”

His poor soul said to God:

“Father, I am just covering

The imperfection-holes

Of my body, vital, mind and heart.”

```

3439

```

When my Lord’s Compassion-Eye

Appears,

My depression-vital

Disappears. ```

3440

```

Inspiration invites aspiration

To accompany it

While it goes forward to the farthest.

Aspiration smilingly accepts. ```

3441

```

Aspiration invites inspiration

To accompany it

While it flies upward to the highest.

Inspiration bravely accepts. ```

3442

```

The willingness

Of the mind

Is surprisingly powerful.

```

3443

```

The eagerness

Of the heart

Is astonishingly fruitful.

```

3444

```

O world-beauty-face,

Where are you?

Do not deprive me

Of seeing you. ```

3445

```

O world-purity-heart,

Where are you?

I am dying to become one with you.

```

3446

```

God needs my cheerful availability

All the time,

More than anything else.

```

3447

```

Each time I follow

The Fragrance-Footsteps

Of my Lord Supreme,

I swim breathlessly

In the sea of ecstasy.

```

3448

```

My Lord Supreme,

You have made me an aspiration-tree.

Now I am offering You

My dedication-fruits and flowers. ```

3449

```

I call it disobedience,

But God calls it danger,

Real danger.

```

3450

```

All along,

God has been asking me

To love Him

With my aspiration-heart.

Now He is asking me

To add something.

He wants me to serve Him

As well

With my surrender-life.

```

3451

```

God asks me

To keep my gratitude-heart

Always active and dynamic.

```

3452

```

The more I pray and meditate,

The longer my Lord keeps

His Satisfaction-Smile.

```

3453

```

Today I am fully resolved

To challenge the invasion

Of my God-unwillingness-mind.

```

3454

```

Unlike my mind,

My heart always walks along

The God-fulfilment-road.

```

3455

```

I call it

My God-hungry heart,

But God calls it

His Satisfaction-Pride. ```

3456

```

May my aspiration-heart,

My dedication-life

And my God-manifestation-breath

Forever and forever

Sing their God-Victory-songs.

```

3457

```

God smiled.

My doubting mind

Immediately surrendered.

```

3458

```

God thundered.

My destruction-cherishing vital

Immediately surrendered.

```

3459

```

My soul every day collects

God’s teeming Dreams

And offers them lovingly and faithfully

To all God-seekers. ```

3460

```

When my mind exercises

Its determination-power,

God smilingly and proudly says:

“My child, I am expediting

My choice Hour for you.”

```

3461

```

My Lord tells me, “My child, observe!

Observe everything and everybody.

Then, when the time comes,

I shall tell you what to say

And what to do.”

```

3462

```

Every day God tells me

To feel that His Satisfaction-Heart

Is more mine than His own.

```

3463

```

Each individual has many virtues.

God tells me that in my inner life,

My best virtue is my tearful gratitude,

And in my outer life,

My best virtue is my blissful surrender.

```

3464

```

O my prayerful mind,

Where are you?

It is high time

For you to come back to me. ```

3465

```

O my grateful heart,

Where are you?

It is high time

For you to come back to me. ```

3466

```

Obedience is

The secret and sacred name

Of my aspiration-heart.

```

3467

```

Determination is

The secret and sacred name

Of my dedication-life.

```

3468

```

O my God-gratitude-heart,

You are my light,

You are my pride,

You are my everything. ```

3469

```

My Lord’s Compassion-Eye

Smilingly travels the inner world

Every day.

```

3470

```

My Lord’s Concern-Eye

Carefully travels the outer world

Every day.

```

3471

```

My Lord’s Sadness-Eye

Tearfully travels the lower worlds

Every day.

```

3472

```

My Lord’s Satisfaction-Eye

Proudly travels the higher worlds

Every day.

```

3473

```

My Lord,

You are my divinity-soul’s

Immortality-Destination.

```

3474

```

My Lord,

You are my humanity-life’s

Daily destination.

```

3475

```

Whatever is sleeping inside my heart

Has to wake up.

Why not now, this very moment?

```

3476

```

My soul is commanding

My stubborn mind

To surrender to my soul’s light

Before it is too late. ```

3477

```

My today’s aspiration-battlefield

Tomorrow I shall turn into

An aspiration-heart-garden

With the unconditional Help

Of my Lord Supreme.

```

3478

```

I want my mind to know

What the truth

Actually looks like.

```

3479

```

I want my heart to feel

What the truth

Actually is.

```

3480

```

I want my life to support

Truth

And what it stands for.

```

3481

```

Alas, God alone knows

When our outer life

Will be a perfect exponent

Of our inner life! ```

3482

```

World-peace is a subject

We ceaselessly talk about.

World-peace is a lesson

We all needs must learn. ```

3483

```

Our own inner light

Has to come to the fore

To illumine the darkness-weapon

That our mind uses

To maintain its supremacy.

```

3484

```

You profess to have

The compassion, concern

And feeling of oneness

To put an end to world-conflicts

And world-sufferings.

Why then do you exhibit

So much disagreement,

Disharmony and bitter wrangling

With others?

```

3485

```

The positive aspect of life

Is not only neglected,

But totally forgotten

By the majority of humanity. ```

3486

```

Outer peace-promises

Are at once

Extremely hollow

And

Shockingly shallow.

```

3487

```

Peace is

An inner achievement,

Not an outer compromise.

```

3488

```

Compromise

Is not

A permanent solution

To any problem,

Inner or outer.

```

3489

```

Compromise only creates

A kind of uncertain hope

For future amicability.

```

3490

```

Compromise is like an agreement

Between two boxers

To stop fighting,

While secretly they muster their strength

For an imminent encounter.

```

3491

```

Peace is first

An individual achievement.

Then it grows into

A collective achievement.

Finally it becomes

A universal achievement. ```

3492

```

Alas, the truth

That the unaspiring human beings

See and feel

Is deplorably partial. ```

3493

```

My Lord blessingfully says to me,

“My child,

I love your world-beckoning courage,

Your world-illumining mind

And your world-uplifting heart.”

```

3494

```

Your wisdom-flooded life

Will confidently guide the world

To a glorious God-Satisfaction-Goal.

```

3495

```

When we live in the mind,

The future is so unpredictable

That it can give us

A very shocking and devastating

Experience.

```

3496

```

My soul,

Yours is a clarion-call

That is destined to be heard

Far and wide. ```

3497

```

When a cynic

Enters into a garden,

The first thing he does

Is look for the weeds,

And not for the beautiful flowers.

```

3498

```

When a cynic

Looks at the moon,

Consciously and deliberately

He tries to see all its dark spots

And big holes.

```

3499

```

A cynic thinks and feels

With utmost certainty

That spirituality’s outer life

And inner breath

Are made of hollow stupidity.

```

3500

```

A cynic feels

That he has the capacity

To size up spiritual values

And spiritual Masters

In the twinkling of an eye.

```

3501

```

A cynic drinks nectar-delight

The moment he can criticise

And belittle

The world around him. ```

3502

```

A cynic is certain

That everybody should be admitted

To a mental asylum —

Save and except him! ```

3503

```

A cynic abhors the stupidity,

Which he calls gullible stupidity,

Of his own previous years.

```

3504

```

A cynic feels

That his present life

Is inundated

With immeasurable wisdom. ```

3505

```

A cynic says to God,

“Had I known before

Who You truly and eternally are,

Then I would not even

Have condescended

To enter into Your creation,

Let alone remain in Your creation.”

```

3506

```

A cynic’s life-boat plies between

The world-sneering

And world-backbiting shores,

Regularly, punctually

And unfailingly.

```

3507

```

Day in and day out,

A cynic has only one question

To ask God:

“Why, why, why, why?” ```

3508

```

Poor God has only one answer

To give a cynic:

“My Game is not over,

My Game is not over,

My Game is not over,

My Game is not over.” ```

3509

```

A cynic cautions

Each and every human being:

“Do not enter into the unknown!

Do not cultivate an unfamiliar field!

Do not have faith in anybody else!

Muster all faith in yourself

And for yourself!”

```

3510

```

A cynic cautions me:

“If you make mistakes on your own,

You will somehow be able

To save yourself.

But if you are suffering

From the mistakes committed by others,

Then there is no hope for you

To move forward.” ```

3511

```

A cynic has convinced himself

That he is

A self-sufficient person.

```

3512

```

To a cynic,

The world is a costly

Farce.

```

3513

```

To a cynic,

The inner world is wedded

To brooding confusion.

```

3514

```

To a cynic,

The inner world is nothing

But a chimera’s mist.

```

3515

```

To a cynic,

The inner world is

A phantasmagoria.

```

3516

```

A cynic says to humanity,

“I am a new light, the only light.

Follow me!

If you do not,

The utter futility of your life

Will eventually paralyse you,

Astonishingly and shockingly.”

```

3517

```

O cynic,

For years and years

You have been climbing

The pinnacle-heights

Of negativity.

```

3518

```

God has unmistakably taught us

That the tenebrous night

Is not life’s ultimate message.

```

3519

```

Let us all chant

The birthless and deathless

Nectar-delight-message

Of the Vedic seers

Of the hoary past —

Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya

“Lead me from darkness

To Light.” ```

3520

```

Let us all chant

The Immortality-flooded

World-birth-message

Of the Bible —

Lux sit

“Let there be Light.” ```

3521

```

Many will come and many will go.

But some will definitely remain

Faithful children of the Supreme

And devotedly stay with Him

In His Boat

To reach the Destination:

The Golden Shore of the Beyond.

```

3522

```

President Kennedy’s loftiest

America-illumining utterance:

“Ask not what your country

Can do for you;

Ask what you can do for your country.”

The Supreme’s loftiest

World-illumining utterance:

“Ask not what spirituality and I

Can give to you;

Ask what you can give

To spirituality and to Me.”

```

3523

```

God loves us and needs us

Infinitely more

Than we can ever imagine.

```

3524

```

God begs us not to house

Two most destructive

Weapon-words

In our heart-dictionary:

Negativity and cynicism.

```

3525

```

Cast aside negativity!

Lo, you will fly and fly

In Infinity’s Sky,

And God will sing and dance

In your world-illumining

And world-fulfilling achievement. ```

3526

```

Now that you have

Completely given up

Your negativity,

I can clearly see

That you are blossoming

Most beautifully,

Like a sweet, young child.

```

3527

```

O world,

My happiness-heart-blooms

To you I give —

Even if you do not want. ```

3528

```

O God,

My gratitude-life-blossoms

To You I give —

Even if You do not need. ```

3529

```

The smile of new faces I have seen,

But now I want to become

The heart of oneness-life.

```

3530

```

Alas, will my self-doubt-

Nightmare-indulgence

Ever end in my life?

```

3531

```

The oneness-philosophy

That your soul learnt

From God Himself

Your soul is now trying to share

With you.

But alas, success still remains

A far cry!

```

3532

```

My Lord,

I have dragged You down

From Heaven,

But instead of getting angry with me,

You have placed

Your Compassion-Crown

Upon my head.

```

3533

```

Disturbing doubts

Must be caught

By the God-searching mind.

```

3534

```

Since God Himself is not

A frustrated humanity-lover,

How can I be one?

```

3535

```

Your life is an unmistaken reality

When it feels that it lives

Only for the fulfilment

Of God-necessity. ```

3536

```

Our Lord Supreme

Is never

An unpredictable investment.

```

3537

```

Each unaspiring life

Is a fearful and tearful series

Of broken promises.

```

3538

```

The human power-towers

Rise

Only to fall.

```

3539

```

What is despair?

It is nothing but our unfulfilled desire

In disguise.

```

3540

```

An atom of sincere aspiration

Can bring my heart to the fore

And place me at the Feet

Of my Beloved Lord Supreme. ```

3541

```

Alas,

Human life is torn

Between the heart’s fear

And the mind’s greed. ```

3542

```

A seeker must march forward

In the face of insurmountable obstacles,

To arrive at his supreme Destination.

```

3543

```

An uncomplicated mind

Will definitely accompany

A prayerful heart.

```

3544

```

Self-confidence

Without God-assistance from within

Is the height of stupidity.

```

3545

```

Seize every moment

To transform the undivine into the divine,

And the divine into the perfect.

```

3546

```

My soul asks my life

To claim my soul’s enlightenment

As its own

To further its aspiration and dedication. ```

3547

```

The Tears of God

Have purified my heart.

Now the tears of my heart

Must purify my mind. ```

3548

```

O fair face of the world,

How I wish for you to have

A real heart and not a false one!

```

3549

```

My heart has only

One desire:

It wants to touch

God’s Feet. ```

3550

```

My mind has only

One desire:

It wants to measure

God’s Heart. ```

3551

```

I am happy and fulfilled

Because I have learnt

To face life

As it is. ```

3552

```

Our sincere aspiration

To evolve into godliness

Is God’s measureless Satisfaction.

```

3553

```

Rare is the heart

That can feel everything

As divine.

```

3554

```

Rare is the mind

That sees anything

As divine.

```

3555

```

God is performing His Task:

He is dreaming of me all the time.

But alas, where is my awareness?

Where is my belief?

Where is my satisfaction?

```

3556

```

My heart-tears purify my mind

And satisfy both God’s thirsty Eye

And His hungry Heart.

```

3557

```

O seeker,

Every day make a special effort

To remain far above

Your mind’s self-doubt-clouds. ```

3558

```

You, too, can see God’s Eye

And hear God’s Message.

Just cultivate readiness in your mind

And willingness in your heart. ```

3559

```

My heart wants me to sit

At God’s Feet,

And my soul wants me to sing

A self-giving song for God. ```

3560

```

When God sees gratitude

Inside our heart,

He asks His Smiles

To come and live with us. ```

3561

```

Just step aside

If you do not want to be

Misunderstood

By others’ minds. ```

3562

```

Just step aside

If you do not want your heart-sun

To be eclipsed

By others’ jealousy-clouds. ```

3563

```

If we dare to brave

The inevitable,

God immediately comes

And embraces us. ```

3564

```

When we have ceaseless faith

In our spiritual life,

Our desire-mind finally bows to us.

```

3565

```

In the spiritual life,

Do not waste your time

Trying to find out facts.

It may blind your mind

And bind your heart.

```

3566

```

As desperation knows

No tomorrow,

Even so, aspiration knows

No tomorrow. ```

3567

```

Hope and promise

Can make us

Extremely fast runners

In our spiritual life. ```

3568

```

Who imposed heavy loads

On you?

Look carefully within.

You will see that they are all

Self-imposed.

```

3569

```

God’s Heart waits and waits

To hear one song,

Only one song

From my gratitude-heart. ```

3570

```

If you want to lose

Your suffering,

Then choose concern

For the rest of the world. ```

3571

```

A small mind feels that everything

Is infinitely bigger,

And everybody is infinitely taller.

```

3572

```

The enthusiasm of the vital

Is the dynamic energy

Of the entire body.

```

3573

```

God asks us to do

Only one thing:

Enjoy the world

With the light of detachment. ```

3574

```

Too much faith

Is an impossibility.

This is a foolish idea

Invented by foolish seekers. ```

3575

```

The source of life’s attachments

Is the turbulent sea

Of the mind.

```

3576

```

The more I crave for

Earthly fulfilment,

The more I suffer from

A famished aspiration-heart. ```

3577

```

My mind-violin

Has only two strings:

Desire-mountain

And despair-sea. ```

3578

```

Self-indulgence-disasters

Secretly begin,

But openly end.

```

3579

```

God’s Eye observes everything,

But preserves only the things

That it chooses.

```

3580

```

The doubting mind

Has never won

The popularity competition.

```

3581

```

The aspiring heart

Wins the popularity competition

Without even participating.

```

3582

```

Desire-fulfilment

Will never be in vogue

In a seeker’s life.

```

3583

```

We beg and beg greatness

To share with us

Its success-smile.

```

3584

```

Even before we think

Of begging goodness

To share anything,

Goodness comes to share its breath

With us.

```

3585

```

During our short visit to earth,

Can we not become

A long-lived self-offering

To God the creation? ```

3586

```

Because I belong to the Supreme,

It is beneath my dignity

To make friends with ignorance-life.

```

3587

```

I must convince myself

That I am

A supremely chosen instrument

Of my Lord Supreme. ```

3588

```

My realisation

Looms large

Inside my God-conviction.

```

3589

```

Human pride is division-darkness.

Divine pride is light within,

Light without

In universal oneness. ```

3590

```

We have many undivine qualities.

Among them,

Pride is unsurpassable.

```

3591

```

Pride secretly

Enters into our mind

And openly destroys

Our life. ```

3592

```

Humility is the collector

Of all our undivine qualities,

Which it places at the Feet

Of our Lord Beloved Supreme. ```

3593

```

Human pride runs and jumps,

Demanding,

“Break, break, break!”

Divine pride radiates and glows,

Urging,

“Build, build, build!” ```

3594

```

Inside the depth of your prayer

You will find

Your soul’s message-light.

```

3595

```

God-manifestation

Is for

God-Satisfaction.

```

3596

```

If you are praying soulfully

And meditating self-givingly,

Then rest assured you are doing

Absolutely the right thing,

And God Himself treasures you.

```

3597

```

May I cry, smile, sing and dance,

My Lord,

Around Your Feet all the time.

```

3598

```

God wanted me to come

And be admonished by

His Thunder-Justice-Feet.

I went, but I could not help kissing

His Thunder-Feet instead,

To my heart’s content. ```

3599

```

You believe in

Your ego-demonstration,

But God believes in

Your ego-demolition. ```

3600

```

My Lord,

Since I am not worthy of

The dust of Your Feet,

May I beg You to bless me

With the dust of the dust

Of Your Feet. ```

3601

```

His life is torn between

His mind’s greed

And his heart’s fear.

```

3602

```

We must arrive at our destined Goal

In the face of

Insurmountable barriers.

```

3603

```

My Lord,

My entire being aches and aches

To manifest all Your Dreams

Here on earth. ```

3604

```

God is extremely proud

Of his heart’s

Sudden magical awakening.

```

3605

```

My uncomplicated days

Are giving my life

The golden opportunity

To make the fastest progress. ```

3606

```

I do not care for

The mind-compromise-

Life.

```

3607

```

I only care for

The soul-sunrise-

Heart.

```

3608

```

My Master’s blessingful smiles

Every day strengthen

My fearful heart.

```

3609

```

My future has

Two places to live:

At my Master’s lotus-feet

And

In my Master’s rose-heart.

```

3610

```

Spiritual enlightenment

Will flood the entire world.

It may take a very, very long time.

```

3611

```

God’s Compassion-Eye

Has paved the way,

O seeker,

For you to walk along

His Compassion-flooded Road.

```

3612

```

I pray and pray to God

To demolish

My pride-mind-edifice

Once and for all. ```

3613

```

Capture all moments,

Transform them,

Then place them at the Feet

Of your Lord Supreme. ```

3614

```

We feel that suffering is necessary

In the spiritual life.

Our souls tell us

That this is absolutely wrong.

Our souls tell us that

From Delight we came,

In Delight we grow

And into Delight we shall retire. ```

3615

```

His divine associations

Have brought to the fore

The very best in him.

```

3616

```

Not by singing loudly,

But by singing prayerfully

And soulfully,

You can bring God to you. ```

3617

```

Alas,

His life’s faith-tree

Was felled

By his mind’s giant doubt. ```

3618

```

If you want to be at peace

Within yourself,

Then frighten your proud mind

And proud vital

With your heart’s God-given light.

```

3619

```

Pray to God to own nothing

In your mind-world,

So that you can gain everything

In your heart-world. ```

3620

```

Inspiration, aspiration and dedication:

These three are our unfailing friends

When we run towards God.

```

3621

```

My heart,

You are overjoyed in your bright days.

Continue aspiring;

Even brighter days are coming. ```

3622

```

God wants you to be

A lover of the world

And not a sufferer

In the world. ```

3623

```

My searching mind

Is a local

God-Compassion-Train-passenger.

```

3624

```

My aspiring heart

Is an express

God-Justice-Train-passenger.

```

3625

```

You, too, can see God’s Eye.

You, too, can feel God’s Heart.

You, too, can sit at God’s Feet.

You, too, can satisfy God

At every moment

In His own Way. ```

3626

```

When God gives us the capacity

To identify ourselves

Lovingly and self-givingly

With His entire creation,

Our division-supremacy-pride

Bursts like a balloon. ```

3627

```

My Lord proudly smiles and smiles

When I measure the length of sincerity

In my aspiration, my dedication

And specially, my devotion. ```

3628

```

My heart’s gratitude-tears

Make my Lord Beloved Supreme

Extremely proud of me.

```

3629

```

Illumination-shore nears us

When we do not carry

Hesitation-load in our mind.

```

3630

```

God’s Forgiveness-Willingness

And our gratitude-necessity

Should go together.

```

3631

```

I think of God

Not because God loves me,

But because my heart

Always desperately needs Him. ```

3632

```

Self-indulgence

And overconfidence

Are our two true enemies.

```

3633

```

If for four hours

We repeat God’s Name

Every day,

Then our life will be able

To acquire a reputation

For purity. ```

3634

```

Temptation-desires

Must be shunned

Not only every hour

And every minute,

But every second.

```

3635

```

Every morning we must separate

And liberate our mind

From desire-attacks.

```

3636

```

In our spiritual life,

Needless to say,

There are many undivine forces

That we carry along with us,

And pride is the worst of all.

```

3637

```

Eventually the mind’s pride

Has to surrender

To the heart’s humility.

```

3638

```

I believe in

The magic transformation

Of life:

We can establish universal oneness

Through our prayer and meditation.

```

3639

```

When we deliberately disobey

The Will of our Inner Pilot,

We enter into the darkest chasm

Of ignorance-night. ```

3640

```

Out of His infinite Compassion,

My Lord has replaced

My uncertainty-mind

With certainty-promise,

And my insecurity-heart

With security-delight. ```

3641

```

To achieve mastery over the mind

Is not an impossible task.

Many have done it.

I shall definitely join them

In the course of time

At God’s choice Hour. ```

3642

```

Where does hypocrisy come from?

Hypocrisy comes from

Our exorbitant greed

For our own happiness. ```

3643

```

The birth of universal peace

Will arrive

From individual longing

For constant God-satisfaction

In God’s own Way.

```

3644

```

We have the mistaken belief

That we have to sacrifice everything

To please God in His own Way.

Pleasing God in His own Way

Has nothing to do with renunciation.

```

3645

```

Our total surrender-heart

Helps our life to thrive

Far beyond our imagination.

```

3646

```

Let us continue, my life!

Let us continue with

Our God-dedication-cries

And God-satisfaction-smiles. ```

3647

```

We tell God

That there is no proper substitute

For His Compassion-Eye-Height.

```

3648

```

God, out of His infinite Compassion,

Tells us

That there is no proper substitute

For our gratitude-heart-depth. ```

3649

```

The loftiest pride

Of the mind

Can easily blight

The brightest achievement

Of the heart.

```

3650

```

My heart’s patience-light

Laughs and laughs

At my mind’s despair-night.

```

3651

```

Alas, there is

A most deplorable difference

Between our heart’s prayers

And our mind’s misdeeds. ```

3652

```

My Master,

I shall love you deeply

As long as you do not ask me

To sit for my

Surrender-oneness-examination.

```

3653

```

Wisdom says to patience:

My oneness-friend,

For us there can be

No permanent defeat. ```

3654

```

God blessingfully

Invited me

To take care of

His Feet. ```

3655

```

I have prayerfully

Invited God

To take care of

My head. ```

3656

```

God-fulfilling opportunities

Divinely used,

We become kings

In the inner world. ```

3657

```

God-fulfilling opportunities

Deliberately misused,

We become veritable beggars

In the inner world. ```

3658

```

Every day

We give God

Our heart’s prayerful tears.

```

3659

```

Every day

God gives us

His Eye’s blissful Smiles.

```

3660

```

My life’s surrender

To God’s Will

Is the source

Of my heart’s ceaseless peace. ```

3661

```

Sleepless and breathless enthusiasm

Can not only shake the world,

But also transform the world.

```

3662

```

Each positive thought

Is a step

Towards God’s Delight-flooded

Palace. ```

3663

```

O seeker,

Do you remember

That you were devotedly with God

To offer Him repeated successes? ```

3664

```

O seeker,

Do you know

That you are self-givingly with God

For His complete manifestation

On earth?

```

3665

```

O seeker,

I am sure

That you will be gratefully with God

Forever and forever

To please Him at every moment

In His own Way. ```

3666

```

God tells me again and again,

Out of His infinite Bounty,

That He can and He will

Obliterate and nullify

My most deplorable past.

```

3667

```

Rest assured,

All your good deeds

Will only be multiplied and multiplied

By the power of God’s Grace. ```

3668

```

I cannot believe

That God is telling me

He will be responsible

For all my misdeeds

If only I give Him

Full responsibility to be so. ```

3669

```

God asks me to do Him

A big favour:

Either to take His philosophy

As my philosophy,

Or to stay with my own philosophy,

But not to unite them.

His philosophy is self-giving;

My philosophy is world-possessing. ```

3670

```

God Himself has asked your Master

To be the golden bridge

Between you and God,

And also to be

Your absolute fate-maker.

```

3671

```

Once you accept the spiritual life,

God-satisfaction has to be

Your inner choice

And outer voice. ```

3672

```

Your philosophy has to be

The manifestation

Of your soul’s closest connection

With God. ```

3673

```

Your philosophy has to be

The manifestation

Of your Master’s sleepless concern

For humanity. ```

3674

```

Your philosophy has to be

To awaken the sleeping humanity

To take eternal shelter

At God’s Compassion-flooded

Liberation-Feet.

```

3675

```

If you are positive

In whatever you say and do,

Then you will be able to bring

All your divine qualities

To the fore

And have most powerful

God-satisfaction-meditations.

```

3676

```

You are telling me

That you have lost faith in God.

I take it as your yesterday’s news.

Today’s news, whether you want to give

Or not,

God will give me on your behalf:

That you have not only regained

But multiplied

Your faith in God.

```

3677

```

God tells me

That He does not need to see

My soul’s credentials.

But He wants to see

My heart’s credentials,

And He does not want

To waste His time

With my mind’s credentials. ```

3678

```

Do you not believe

That you have the capacity,

More than you need,

To manifest God’s Light

Here on earth?

```

3679

```

Is there any special reason

Why you cannot accept

God’s philosophy as your own?

Is it too demanding,

Or is it too lenient?

“It is not that I do not want

To accept God’s philosophy.

I want to, but alas,

My love-devotion-surrender

I myself buried

In my self-oblivion.” ```

3680

```

As long as you remain

In God’s Golden Boat,

Rest assured,

Out of His infinite Compassion,

God will show you the light —

That His philosophy

Is the only philosophy

To give you joy

And to give you fulfilment.

```

3681

```

The Highest can be reached

If we can make

Our love and gratitude

Abundantly rich. ```

3682

```

Each time I do an excellent meditation,

God comes rushing towards me

To show me

His Tears of Light and Delight. ```

3683

```

God does not want you to prove,

But it is your soul that wants you

To prove to God,

That you have convinced yourself

That God’s Way is the only way

For you. ```

3684

```

You give to your Master

What you have:

Devotion.

Your Master will give you

What he is:

An open heart. ```

3685

```

If you are wanting

In devotion,

No satisfaction-progress

You can ever claim. ```

3686

```

If you use your heart’s devotion-magnet

All the time,

Then your God-approach-speed

Will simply fascinate you. ```

3687

```

Bring to the fore

Your lost devotion.

Newness will be the name

Of your thought,

And fulness will be the name

Of your action. ```

3688

```

Some are of the opinion

That one cannot do

The highest meditation

While walking.

I am so happy

That I am a perfect stranger

To that absurdity-founded philosophy.

```

3689

```

My Lord,

Shall I take shelter

In my own highest consciousness

Or inside Your Compassion-Eye?

“My child,

How do you cleverly forget

That My Compassion-Eye

Is the source

Of your highest consciousness?”

```

3690

```

Do not separate

Your soulful consciousness

From your real meditation.

They are inseparable,

Like a flower and its beauty.

```

3691

```

Your meditative consciousness

Is nothing short of

Your God-nearing feet.

```

3692

```

O seeker,

Why do you believe in

Your mind,

When it tells you that God-obedience

Is extremely bitter?

```

3693

```

O seeker,

How is it that you do not believe in

Your heart,

When it says that God-obedience

Is sweetness-joy itself?

```

3694

```

When I enter into

My aspiring heart,

I deeply enjoy

The feast of hopes. ```

3695

```

Who says that there is no short-cut

To the Golden Shore?

From my personal experience,

I feel that devotion is definitely

The short-cut to the Golden Shore.

```

3696

```

I am

My heart’s

Aspiration-beauty-flower.

```

3697

```

God is

His Eye’s

Illumination-Compassion-Tower.

```

3698

```

Negativity always

Wants and demands

To be at centre stage.

```

3699

```

My mind’s teeming doubts

Are bound to surrender to you,

O my heart.

Just wait a little more. ```

3700

```

God asks me

Never to measure

My lethargy-devoured

Body-height,

But to measure devotedly

The length of my heart-height. ```

3701

```

I give God my earthly life

To please Him.

God gives me His Heavenly Breath

To please me. ```

3702

```

God’s Compassion-Eye has planted

Peace-seeds inside my heart-garden.

Therefore, my entire being

Is overjoyed. ```

3703

```

God’s Concern-Eye not only has

Concern for me,

But also protects me

In every possible way

From temptation-life.

```

3704

```

My prayerful and soulful

Gratitude-heart

Is too beautiful, too sacred

And too illumining to waste. ```

3705

```

My Lord, I am all ready

And I am all willing

To do everything immediately

At Your Bidding. ```

3706

```

O seeker, do not worry

About your teeming imperfections.

God will take care of your imperfections

As long as you have sincere oneness

With His Will.

```

3707

```

My Lord, I am weak.

I have doubt,

Jealousy and insincerity.

Will You not take away my problems,

And also not forget

To take me with them? ```

3708

```

There was a time

When he wanted to conquer

All his undivine qualities.

But now, alas, he has turned

All those undivine qualities

Into stark weapons

To use against God.

```

3709

```

Instead of taking his weaknesses

As enemies

To be placed at God’s Feet,

He has taken them as his soldiers

And become their commander

To challenge God. ```

3710

```

My Lord,

My doubt-mind and insecurity-heart

Are so hurtful.

Why did You not conquer

Or give me the capacity

To conquer them?

Alas, even after so many years

I still remain the same. ```

3711

```

You are trying and God is trying

To change your nature.

But you must realise

That nature’s transformation

Is not like an instant sweet drink.

Everything takes its own time. ```

3712

```

Alas, why are you feeding

Your weaknesses?

Do you not see that they are becoming

Your own self-destruction-strength? ```

3713

```

It is beneath your spiritual dignity

To mix with those who are telling you

That there is nothing wrong

In disagreeing with God. ```

3714

```

When you are in the heart,

You are all ready to give

All your imperfections to God.

When you are in the mind,

You either see no imperfections

In your life,

Or you feel that you can somehow

Manage your life

With all your imperfections.

```

3715

```

If we are perfect,

Then why do we need God?

We need God

To teach us the song

Of perfection-transcendence.

```

3716

```

You may be imperfect,

But your eagerness to be perfect

Is the very beginning

Of perfection. ```

3717

```

As you offer your light to God,

Even so, offer your darkness

For illumination.

If you keep your darkness to yourself,

Then to your great sorrow and surprise,

Darkness will never leave you —

Even when you most sincerely long for

Its departure. ```

3718

```

God never forces a seeker

To offer his ignorance.

Why? Because the seeker

May tell God,

“This is my hard-earned possession.

Let me keep it,

As You keep Your Light with You.”

```

3719

```

When love, devotion and surrender

Disappear,

We blame God,

As if our deplorable fate

Were all God’s fault.

```

3720

```

Alas, how often a seeker

Accuses God:

“God, how can You be truly happy

By keeping my life utterly miserable?” ```

3721

```

The more we think we know

About God,

The less we know,

Because we have no idea

Of how God’s Blessing-Plants

Will take shape. ```

3722

```

My goal

Is to see reality

Not with my human eyes,

But with my divine heart. ```

3723

```

Freedom we want,

But do we ever care to know

Where it comes from?

It comes from our sleepless oneness

With God’s Breath.

```

3724

```

When my hesitation-mind

Stands on the shore

Of the consciousness-ocean,

It only tries to count

The drops and waves

Of the ocean

Instead of becoming

The ocean itself. ```

3725

```

My utter stupidity says to God,

“I am keeping my ignorance

To myself.

This is, indeed, what I want.

This is, indeed, what I need.”

```

3726

```

Alas,

There is no country

Here on earth

Where wisdom-light is king. ```

3727

```

Not only his heart

But also his mind

Is astonishingly

In close touch with God. ```

3728

```

In spirituality,

The highest award we can get

Is our constant oneness

With God’s Will. ```

3729

```

I am determined

Not to waste any more time

In the body of lethargy.

```

3730

```

It is good to see God every day.

It is better to be near God every day.

It is by far the best to sit at God’s Feet

And obey Him at every moment. ```

3731

```

Temptation is now

Stronger than the strongest

In human life.

But there shall come a time

When temptation will not only be

Weaker than the weakest,

But will exist no more

In human life. ```

3732

```

A ceaseless flow

Of gratitude-tears

Is the pinnacle of my spiritual life.

```

3733

```

May my life every day

Be an epiphany

Of divine thoughts.

```

3734

```

God chooses a special trophy

From His Heart-Room

To bless me

Each time I make a special sacrifice

For my fellow citizens.

```

3735

```

My Lord,

Give me blind faith,

And no other faith,

So that I never surrender

To any difficulty in my life.

```

3736

```

What does the doubt-thief do?

It secretly enters into

The belief-heart

To steal. ```

3737

```

O my mind,

When my heart throws a party,

Stay as long as you can.

It is all for your good. ```

3738

```

Blind and bind

Uncomely thoughts

Long before they attempt

To blind and bind you. ```

3739

```

My mind’s God-longing days

Are very,

Very short-lived.

```

3740

```

There is only one way

To arrive at the destination:

Begin.

```

3741

```

Do you want to be happy?

Then force your mind to be

Inside the breath of your heart.

This is the only way

To keep yourself happy.

```

3742

```

Remember,

Your vital demands are innumerable,

But your Lord’s Command is just one:

“March forward!” ```

3743

```

Between two seeker-friends,

What God wants is a soulful conversation

And not a secret and hurtful competition.

```

3744

```

Either gaze and gaze

At God’s Lotus-Feet

Or face disaster after disaster.

```

3745

```

If you most sincerely invoke God,

Then you cannot seriously

Provoke mankind.

```

3746

```

Subtle desires

Have an extremely

Long life.

```

3747

```

O seeker,

I assure you that your

God-inspiring soulfulness-songs

Will cure the deafness of mankind. ```

3748

```

My Lord tells me

That the questions of my heart

Need no answers.

The questions already embody

The answers.

They need only self-revelation. ```

3749

```

My Lord,

Ask my soul to free my mind

From its self-doubt-imprisonment.

```

3750

```

My mind, pray,

Even if you do not have

Anything special to pray for.

Your prayers

Are your strongest bodyguards.

```

3751

```

My soul tells me

That a self-offering heart

Is another name

For a God-becoming life. ```

3752

```

Each new incarnation

Is a golden opportunity:

Either I become God’s Heart

Or man’s slave. ```

3753

```

Meditation discovers

Silence-light.

Silence-light discovers

God’s Delight. ```

3754

```

Meditation

Is the liberator

Of self-limitation.

```

3755

```

My meditation becomes one

Not only with God-Universality,

But also with God-Responsibility.

```

3756

```

It is the bounden duty

Of willingness and eagerness

To transform the mind

Of unwillingness. ```

3757

```

We love God the Compassion

And dislike God the Justice

In the same breath.

```

3758

```

Not to pray

And not to meditate

Is a sheer waste

Of God-blessed breath. ```

3759

```

My devotion

Surprisingly makes

My mind beautiful.

```

3760

```

My devotion

Spontaneously makes

My heart sweet.

```

3761

```

My devotion

Untiringly makes

My life perfect.

```

3762

```

A doubting mind

Is quite apt to eclipse

The heart’s

Moon-love-beauty. ```

3763

```

Each aspiration-heart

Is

A God-satisfying song.

```

3764

```

With the blossoming of each day,

I shall intensify

My God-search-aspiration-flames.

```

3765

```

The mind-government

Shall always be wanting

In wisdom-light

And compassion-delight. ```

3766

```

Self-denial

Is nothing short of

Self-styled self-indulgence.

```

3767

```

Even the unwillingness-mind

Finally surrenders

To the eagerness-heart.

```

3768

```

Not the powerful earth,

But the tearful earth

Compels God’s blessingful

And blissful Descent. ```

3769

```

Do not allow your mind

To cancel your heart’s pilgrimage

To God’s Delight-flooded Kingdom.

```

3770

```

Every day

My Lord is

A Forgiveness-certainty.

```

3771

```

No matter how many times

And in how many ways

Silence wants to give some advice

To my mind,

My mind just runs away.

```

3772

```

My heart’s excruciating pangs

Are the result

Of my being a hesitation-victim.

```

3773

```

Day in and day out

I struggle,

Not for God’s Light,

But for my supremacy supreme. ```

3774

```

I am absolutely certain

That my God-longing voyage

Will be crowned with success

At God’s choice Hour. ```

3775

```

When my gratitude-heart and I

Look at God’s Lotus-Feet,

God asks us to jump into

His Delight-Heart-Ocean

To swim and swim and swim.

```

3776

```

Be like a child,

Act like a child.

Go from one flower to another

In your heart-garden

Until you find complete joy

And perfect satisfaction. ```

3777

```

Think of yourself as a river

Constantly flowing at top speed.

Your mind

Will never be discouraged,

And your heart

Will never be disheartened. ```

3778

```

In life we must never give up!

Acceptance

And self-transcendence

Should always remain our motto. ```

3779

```

Even if there are

A great many obstacles in life,

Be like a river that continues flowing,

Paying no attention to all barriers.

Unmistakably it arrives at its goal:

The vastness-sea. ```

3780

```

If we do not expect anything

Either from ourselves or from the world,

Discouragement cannot chase us.

```

3781

```

Always keep in mind

That you are definitely going to fulfil

Your God-entrusted responsibility

On earth. ```

3782

```

Muster strength

And say to yourself

That God-satisfaction

Is your birthright. ```

3783

```

In life we are always

Proceeding forward.

God Himself is proceeding

And progressing,

So there is no such thing

As a finished product. ```

3784

```

God does not mind

If we do not fulfil Him

According to the capacity

He has given,

But our soul,

The God-representative,

Feels extremely sad.

```

3785

```

Let us not stop!

If we stop,

Despair is bound

To devour us. ```

3786

```

Let us not delay our journey.

Let us not halt anywhere.

Even if we take a sidestep,

We shall come back to the right track

And reach our Destination.

```

3787

```

We must never hesitate.

Today we may take short steps,

But tomorrow we may take

Long, longer, longest steps,

And the day after tomorrow

We may run and sprint

And arrive at our Destination,

Far beyond our imagination. ```

3788

```

If you choose to be

In life’s continuous flow

And in life’s dynamic movement,

Despair you will find nowhere. ```

3789

```

If you stop,

Then unconsciously, if not consciously,

You are proclaiming the victory

Of your deplorable and miserable life. ```

3790

```

Movement is always equipped

With the capacity to destroy

The stagnant negativity

Of the mind. ```

3791

```

O seeker, just get up

Early in the morning

To pray and meditate.

Lo, you have conquered

The pride of lethargy,

And you have won

The Smile of God.

```

3792

```

Even if you have become

A slow train

On your life’s journey,

You will get joy,

Abundant joy,

Because you are moving,

Moving forward.

```

3793

```

If you are going

To keep the mind busy,

Then ask the mind

To study God-lessons thoroughly. ```

3794

```

If you are going

To keep the heart busy,

Then ask the heart

To invoke God happily

And self-givingly.

```

3795

```

All the things

That you know are good

In your aspiration-life,

Ask them to play like children

In your heart-garden.

```

3796

```

A saviour remains a saviour,

No matter what others say about him.

He came into the world only to love God,

Serve God and manifest God,

And for nothing else.

```

3797

```

When I say, “I am a way,

But not the only way,

And in me is my goal,”

That gives much freedom

Not only to me

But to everyone else. ```

3798

```

If I say, “My way

Is by far the best for me,

And others’ ways are best for them,”

Then God comes running towards me

To garland me.

```

3799

```

If I say, “My path

Is a sunlit path for me,”

And if you also say the same,

Then immediately God embraces us

Together.

```

3800

```

I have renounced my mind-kingdom.

Therefore, God has proudly invited me

To visit His Heart-Palace.

```

3801

```

Once your heart is inundated

With God-Delight,

Your heart will never lose it.

```

3802

```

At times, intellectual goals

Can be as funny

As circus clowns.

```

3803

```

My Lord Supreme,

Do tell me

How I can run faster, fly higher

And dive deeper

At every moment.

```

3804

```

The very nature of the unaspiring mind

Is to dampen the inspiration

That wants to come to the fore

From within. ```

3805

```

When my mind is all fixed on God,

The Protection of God

I see all-where.

```

3806

```

I pray and pray every day

To climb the tallest

God-achievement-mountain

And never to descend. ```

3807

```

God is at once fond of

And proud of

Our ever-new beginnings.

```

3808

```

My life’s golden dawn

Is the result

Of my newly-born cries.

```

3809

```

Smiling children are always

God’s Love-distributors,

Wherever they go.

```

3810

```

God connects our prayerful tears

With the Smiles

Of the ever-transcending Beyond.

```

3811

```

O my heart,

You are making a serious mistake

In feeding the mind’s

Expectation-greed. ```

3812

```

My heart-flute

Is

My morning prayer.

```

3813

```

My mind-piano

Is

My daily meditation.

```

3814

```

God has no intention of curbing

My life,

But He is all willingness

And eagerness

To shape and mould my life

In a unique way. ```

3815

```

Real aspiration can never be

The rejection of life.

Real aspiration is the beauty

Of life-acceptance

And the fragrance

Of life-transformation. ```

3816

```

If it is my humility-heart,

Then God lovingly and proudly

Accepts.

```

3817

```

If it is my arrogance-mind,

Then God deliberately and vehemently

Rejects.

```

3818

```

My Lord, may my life be

As beautiful and pure

As my morning-prayer-sunrise.

```

3819

```

Every morning, when hope arrives,

I feel that I can become

The possessor of a new life.

```

3820

```

Every evening, when hope departs,

My sadness and loneliness

Beggar description.

```

3821

```

Every day I pray to God

To give me the capacity

To sail my faith-boat

Speedily and safely. ```

3822

```

Every day I pray to God

To give me the capacity

To capsize my doubt-boat

Happily and proudly. ```

3823

```

Those who live only in the heart

Are accepted

In God’s Heart-Guesthouse.

```

3824

```

My Lord smilingly tells me

That He is more than willing

To accept my gratitude-heart

As His lifelong partner. ```

3825

```

In his case,

Everything is under repair —

His aspiration-heart, his dedication-life

And his God-satisfaction-will. ```

3826

```

A day without being blessed

By God’s Compassion-Eye

Is a totally wasted day.

```

3827

```

I want to explore my aspiration-heart;

I need a witness.

My Lord’s Compassion-Eye

Is more than ready. ```

3828

```

Finally,

All my worries and anxieties

Have taken shelter

In my Lord’s Compassion-flooded

Heart-Sky.

```

3829

```

My Lord, do tell me if my desire-hunger

Will ever come to an end.

If not, I am ready to exit

Secretly and peacefully

From spirituality’s home.

```

3830

```

The moment I remove my head

From my Lord’s Feet,

My anxiety-mind runs riot.

```

3831

```

Hope-world

Belongs

To the faithful.

```

3832

```

Promise-world

Belongs

To the brave.

```

3833

```

The day I forget to smile,

I deplorably fail in everything

That I do and say.

```

3834

```

My heart’s God-songs

Are saving me

From my God-doubting mind.

```

3835

```

My meditation discovers

My Lord’s Silence-Sea

Long before anything else.

```

3836

```

My Lord,

I do not know how far away

You are from me,

But I do know that slowly, steadily

And unerringly

I am nearing Your Heart-Garden. ```

3837

```

O my aspiration-heart,

Do tell me what you would like to do

With my desire-mind.

I want to burn it immediately,

Right here.

```

3838

```

My Lord smiles His immortal Smile

To console my sorrowful heart

Every day.

```

3839

```

Every day I arm myself

With God’s Light

To protect myself

From uncomely thought-attacks. ```

3840

```

I do not know

Where despair comes from,

But I do know that it destroys

Ruthlessly

My mind’s freedom-smile.

```

3841

```

Each time I offer myself

To my Lord Supreme,

He immediately blesses me

With a new promise

For His new manifestation.

```

3842

```

God tells me that if I have

A lion-courage-heart,

Then every day He will proudly come

To visit me. ```

3843

```

Compromise

Is nothing short of

False satisfaction.

```

3844

```

O seeker,

If you truly want to be wise,

Then do not read mind-stories,

But only play heart-songs. ```

3845

```

May my mind’s inspiration-bird

And my heart’s aspiration-tree

Always live together.

```

3846

```

Everything on earth is short-lived.

My ignorance-days,

How is it that you

Do not fall into that category? ```

3847

```

God wants me to have a purity-temple

Inside my mind and not inside my heart.

Why?

Because I already have a purity-temple

Inside my heart.

```

3848

```

My soul, you have plenty of divinity.

How is it that I do not have

Any hunger-necessity?

```

3849

```

My stupidity-incarnate-mind,

How is it that you so often

Dare to argue

With my Lord’s Compassion-Eye

And with His Forgiveness-Heart?

```

3850

```

If everything is said and done

With compassion, affection and love,

Then Heaven’s earth-descent

Cannot remain a far cry. ```

3851

```

I asked God if He could be

My Executive Director.

His immediate answer was:

“Happily and proudly, My child,

I am granting your wish.”

```

3852

```

To have an internal connection

With God’s Will

Is not an impossible task.

Just apply your heart’s devotion-magnet. ```

3853

```

My Lord tells me to learn

Only His Heart-Songs

And not His Life-Stories.

```

3854

```

Lord, I do not know how to thank You

At every moment

For what You are doing and not doing

To fulfil Your Mission

In and through me.

```

3855

```

God and God’s Will

Have chosen my heart

To be their most faithful follower.

```

3856

```

O my depression-vital,

I shall prove to you

That my heart’s joy

Is infinitely stronger than you are. ```

3857

```

Every morning

My Lord enters into my heart-garden

And plants a new peace-tree.

```

3858

```

Even when God is extremely busy,

He does not fail to think of me.

He sends His Compassion-Eye

And Forgiveness-Heart

To take care of my aspiration-heart

And dedication-life. ```

3859

```

Lord, please make me

A supreme adorer and lover

Of each and every utterance of Yours.

```

3860

```

God does not mind

If my mind does not want to be

Acquainted with God’s Will,

But He does mind,

And gets extremely angry

With my heart,

When it wants to be the same.

```

3861

```

We must always remember

That anything uninspiring

Is, indeed, a dead-end road.

```

3862

```

Unconditionally

We must love God —

The sooner the better.

```

3863

```

Every day, with the first rays

Of the morning sun,

I try to become closer and closer

To God’s Compassion-Feet. ```

3864

```

Each moment

Is a new

God-creation-smile.

```

3865

```

If you want to endear yourself

To God,

Your desire-life and aspiration-life

You must give to Him

At the same time.

```

3866

```

Desire-life leads us,

But where?

Only to the nearest graveyard!

```

3867

```

I am absolutely sure

That the future God-Light

Is waiting to guide me and lead me.

```

3868

```

My Lord’s Compassion-Eye

Is the only initiation

I need.

```

3869

```

Long ago

I gave up listening

To my mind’s

Negativity-thoughts. ```

3870

```

When you surrender yourself

To God’s Will,

The Smile you receive from God

Can easily stop your sorrow-flooded life. ```

3871

```

In our spiritual life,

Nothing can be more precious

Than our faith in God

And our faith in ourselves. ```

3872

```

O seeker,

Even the morning birds

Know that they belong to God.

How is it that you do not know? ```

3873

```

No matter how many times

God comes

To pay a visit to your human mind,

He is received

With a most cautious welcome.

```

3874

```

Now that I have liberated myself

From my undisciplined days and nights,

My heart is sweetly drawn

To my Lord Beloved Supreme. ```

3875

```

In my inner life,

I become much richer

Than I ever expected

By walking along the road

Of God-obedience.

```

3876

```

Finally, my wandering mind

Has found its real home:

Silence.

```

3877

```

O my lotus-heart, do tell me

When you are going to bloom

Beautifully,

And when you are going to blossom

Perfectly.

```

3878

```

I always take

My aspiration-heart-shrine

Wherever I go,

Even when I enter into my mind’s

Ignorance-cave.

```

3879

```

Human pride

Can easily darken

The heart’s

Brightest light. ```

3880

```

The Fragrance-Heart-Smile of God

Every morning blesses me

Before I meditate.

```

3881

```

He who sees the divine in everything

Is divinely great.

But he who sees everything as divine

Is supremely good. ```

3882

```

Brave are those

Who face existence as it is.

Braver are those

Who accept the challenge to transform it.

Bravest are those

Who want to establish

God’s permanent Victory

Inside life. ```

3883

```

I ask my mind why it is so unwilling

To think of God and pray to God.

My mind says, “There is no

Particular reason.

The only thing I can think of is this:

I am terribly afraid of God —

Specially His Eye.”

```

3884

```

Without having a goodness-heart first,

We cannot grow into

A godliness-life.

```

3885

```

“Lord, although I have failed You

Many, many times,

Please give me another chance

To love You and serve You.”

In response, God gives me

An immediate embrace. ```

3886

```

I think of

God’s Victory.

God thinks of

My perfection. ```

3887

```

God, I have only two desires:

To touch Your Forgiveness-Feet

And to claim You as my own,

Very own. ```

3888

```

In the morning

I turn towards

God’s Compassion-Eye.

```

3889

```

In the evening

I turn towards

God’s Protection-Feet.

```

3890

```

When I look at the world,

I see the world’s standard

Is too low.

I am totally disappointed. ```

3891

```

When I look at God,

I see God’s standard

Is too high.

I get terribly frightened. ```

3892

```

Be a heart of compassion.

Humanity will sincerely

Love you.

```

3893

```

Be a life of sacrifice.

God will immediately

Need you.

```

3894

```

My happiness is my

God-fulfilling

Inner achievement.

```

3895

```

Every morning

My Lord Supreme comes to me

And feeds my heart

With His Sweetness-Smiles. ```

3896

```

Aim always

High, higher, highest

With your aspiration.

```

3897

```

Dive always

Deep, deeper, deepest

With your eagerness-dedication.

```

3898

```

Purity, where are you?

My mind is searching for you

Everywhere.

```

3899

```

Security, where are you?

My heart is crying

And crying and crying

For you. ```

3900

```

Where are the sun-smile-blossoms

Of my future life?

They are inside the Compassion-Heart

Of my Lord’s eternal Now. ```

3901

```

God loves us even on the days

We enjoy

Our insecurity-hearts

And impurity-minds. ```

3902

```

Age has nothing to do

With wisdom.

Wisdom is the fragrance

Of one’s inner soul-beauty. ```

3903

```

Many highly developed souls

Have died for their beloved countries

Unheralded, unrecognised

And even unnoticed. ```

3904

```

Each positive thought

Is a powerful Blessing

From our Lord Supreme.

```

3905

```

Enthusiasm

Is an unparalleled virtue

In our inner life of aspiration

And in our outer life of dedication. ```

3906

```

Enthusiasm

Is the fastest success

Of the mind.

```

3907

```

Enthusiasm

Is the fastest progress

Of the heart.

```

3908

```

Enthusiasm

Is the fastest satisfaction

Of life.

```

3909

```

O my mind,

Do you really want peace?

Then shun competition-comparison,

World-criticism and self-criticism. ```

3910

```

My prayers sing

For my Lord’s Heart.

My songs pray

For my Lord’s Feet. ```

3911

```

How to achieve happiness?

Not by giving, not by talking,

But by being.

```

3912

```

A doubting mind

Unmistakably means

A confusion-mart.

```

3913

```

When God’s Compassion-Eye

Scolds me,

My aspiration-heart flies

Faster than the fastest. ```

3914

```

A friend of mine said to me:

“There was a time

When I did not care for God,

But now I am all for Him.

Why?

Because every day He feeds

My aspiration-heart sumptuously.”

```

3915

```

A friend of mine said to me:

“There was a time

When I immensely loved God,

But now I just hate Him,

Because He has fully fulfilled

My desire-life.” ```

3916

```

My mind’s dictionary

Does not house the word

‘Gratitude’.

```

3917

```

My heart is always grateful

To God

For what it is.

```

3918

```

O my mind,

Why do you expect

Everything from God

And nothing from yourself? ```

3919

```

O my mind’s depression,

Have you any idea

How much you have weakened

The breath of my aspiration-life? ```

3920

```

No matter how undivine

We have become,

God’s Compassion still remains

The same for us. ```

3921

```

God, when You smile,

My whole world

Has a special meaning.

Otherwise, depression and frustration

Have become my roommates.

```

3922

```

Humility is not humiliation.

No, never!

Humility is an inner light

That genuinely inspires

The rest of the divine virtues

To come to the fore

And illumine the world.

```

3923

```

I am most sincerely

And most proudly discarding

My greatness-mind

To have a goodness-heart. ```

3924

```

God never expects anything

From the unaspiring

Mind-students.

```

3925

```

God expects everything,

Both in the inner world

And in the outer world,

From the aspiring heart-students. ```

3926

```

My gratitude-heart-blossoms

My Lord treasures infinitely more

Than I can ever imagine.

```

3927

```

My Lord tells me

That He will never pardon me

If I deliberately abandon

All my hope-dreams. ```

3928

```

My Lord,

I want to bathe

In the Compassion-Smile of Your Eye

At every moment. ```

3929

```

I need a heart

That will be marvellous

In God-qualities.

```

3930

```

Right at the very start

Of my spiritual journey,

My aspiration-heart warned

My God-disobedience-mind. ```

3931

```

My Lord,

I shall celebrate only one victory,

And that victory will be

My unconditional surrender

To Your Will.

```

3932

```

God does not send invitations

To my mind,

But invites my heart quite often

To be His divine guest. ```

3933

```

A spiritual Master can take

Even the smallness

Of a grain of sand

Most seriously

And, at the same time,

Not take the arrival of death

Seriously.

```

3934

```

My aspiration-heart

And God’s Compassion-Eye

Like to remain eternal optimists.

```

3935

```

To me, the unwillingness

Of the mind

Is the worst torture

In my spiritual life. ```

3936

```

Every day

I place my head and my life

On the altar

Of my Lord’s Compassion infinite. ```

3937

```

A faith-flame may be

Small in appearance,

But supremely great

In reality. ```

3938

```

O my mind,

I shall not allow you

To end in a void.

I want you to live

In the heart of infinite Fulness.

```

3939

```

Who wants to be a member

Of the non-accomplishment club?

Not me, not me!

```

3940

```

The life divine

Has no room for

Why and how

In its heart. ```

3941

```

My Lord,

I pray to You

To give me Blessings

So that I can end my life

In fulness-light

And not in an empty void. ```

3942

```

Cry for God today,

Smile at God today,

Fly with God today,

For tomorrow never comes —

Believe me,

Never! ```

3943

```

May my life’s obedience

And my heart’s gratitude

Bloom and blossom

Every single day. ```

3944

```

It quite often happens

That my Lord’s Compassion-Eye

Is struck by

Humanity’s cruel criticism

And misunderstanding.

```

3945

```

God’s Heart arrives

Long before God’s Feet arrive

To console the streaming tears

Of my heart. ```

3946

```

Bury all your negativity-cynicism

Inside the dust

Beneath your own feet.

```

3947

```

God always holds

My life’s surrender-smile

Close to His own Heart.

```

3948

```

My Lord,

You come only to go.

Please, I beg of You,

This time stay a little longer

Than ever before

To make me really happy. ```

3949

```

O my mind’s ego,

How many times I have told you,

You are no longer welcome

Inside my God-gratitude-heart! ```

3950

```

If it is real Truth,

Then it will always remain

Fresh like the morning rose.

```

3951

```

Every day

I want to take a new birth

With my heart’s devotion-tears.

```

3952

```

If anything remains on earth

Forever untired,

Then it is my Lord’s Forgiveness-Feet.

```

3953

```

God powerfully

Shakes hands with

My willingness-mind.

```

3954

```

God proudly

Embraces

My eagerness-heart.

```

3955

```

My Lord,

I have only one prayer:

May my aspiration-hunger

Every day increase. ```

3956

```

May my heart-room

Remain always open

For small and great

To meet, sing and dance. ```

3957

```

God’s Compassion-Eye

Is the only thing

I see in God’s creation

That remains always busy

And occupied.

```

3958

```

God transforms

My gratitude-whispers

Into His Satisfaction-Drum-Sound.

```

3959

```

If you are sincerely following

The spiritual life,

Then stop saying, “I hope.”

Start saying, “I am absolutely certain

That I am a real instrument

Of my Lord Supreme

To manifest Him here on earth.”

```

3960

```

Nothing on earth

Is destined to last forever,

Save and except

My Lord’s Love-Fountain for me. ```

3961

```

With our outer eyes,

We see an abysmal abyss.

With our inner eye,

We can see the same thing

As beauty’s rainbow-dream.

```

3962

```

The rainbow of our inner divinity

Always rises from

Our crying and weeping hearts.

```

3963

```

God tells me not to delay,

But to come immediately

To join His Infinity’s

Vision-Manifestation-Game. ```

3964

```

Three significant ways

My soul reveals its divinity:

Poetry, music and art.

```

3965

```

My Lord,

Every day I wish to breathe in

Your Infinity

Inside my finite and fleeting

Heart-cries.

```

3966

```

O my God-representative-soul-tree,

Please bless me

With your newness-flowers

And sweetness-fruits. ```

3967

```

Nothing can be more inspiring,

More illumining and more fulfilling

Than humanity’s

God-gratitude-heart-garden. ```

3968

```

An atom of gratitude

Can unmistakably

Bring down Heaven here on earth.

```

3969

```

Gratitude is not a mere dictionary word.

Gratitude is the golden link

Between man’s heart and God’s Heart.

```

3970

```

My mind,

God alone knows

How you have become

A spirituality-authority.

To me, you are nothing but

A learned parrot. ```

3971

```

He who has gratitude to the Supreme

Is bound to succeed

In pleasing the Supreme in his Master

In His own Way. ```

3972

```

No matter how far away you are

From your God-realisation,

Gratitude will give you the fastest speed

To arrive at your Destination. ```

3973

```

Gratitude smashes the pride

Of all the undivine qualities

That a human being

Can possibly have. ```

3974

```

Cultivate God-gratitude,

Cultivate!

You will succeed

In the battlefield of life. ```

3975

```

I am determined

To smash the pride

Of all the negative qualities

That torture me day in and day out. ```

3976

```

A seeker who has

Gratitude-heart-blossoms

In abundant measure

Can never fail, never! ```

3977

```

When wrong forces assail us,

We must become the living breath

Of our gratitude-heart.

```

3978

```

Gratitude

Is our most significant

God-manifesting dream.

```

3979

```

Let us not fail

Our Lord Beloved Supreme

In this special, very special incarnation.

```

3980

```

The things that you

So eloquently utter

And so profusely advise,

You have no time to practise.

I feel sorry for you,

I really do! ```

3981

```

If we fail God here on earth,

We shall fail Him in Heaven

And all-where.

Let us not fail Him,

Let us not fail Him!

```

3982

```

Your inner speed

You have already shown:

Love, devotion and surrender.

Now it is time for you to show

Your outer speed:

Readiness, willingness and eagerness. ```

3983

```

Let us start praying,

Meditating and self-giving

Right from this moment

For the ultimate Victory

Of our Lord Beloved Supreme.

```

3984

```

My spiritual children

Have given me two beautiful

And powerful wings

To fly and fly

In the God-Satisfaction-Sky.

```

3985

```

Each soulful song

Is a beautiful, fragrant flower

To illumine the seeker’s heart

And purify his mind. ```

3986

```

Now that ingratitude-height

Has become your very name,

The abysmal abyss-memory

Shall unfailingly haunt you. ```

3987

```

In God’s Heart-Garden

Are all the flowers you need

To inspire your mind

And feed your heart. ```

3988

```

When you satisfy your own Master,

It is not only your Master

Who blesses you inwardly,

But also other spiritual Masters. ```

3989

```

Your only reality is your soul,

Not your perishable

Body, vital, mind and heart.

Without your permission,

They all will leave you.

```

3990

```

Under the influence of the undivine vital,

Even the heart

Can do many things wrong.

But the soul can never, never, never

Do anything wrong,

For the soul is a conscious

God-representative here on earth.

```

3991

```

For the sincere seekers,

God’s manifestation-creation

Is a heart-garden

Filled with thousands and millions

Of flowers.

```

3992

```

God has everything brand new

Available in His Heart-Home

For the sincere seekers

To choose and take. ```

3993

```

When I heard the Supreme’s Voice

Singing Delight-Songs,

Even my stone heart melted.

```

3994

```

My Lord,

You want me to sing

My heart-songs

Before You.

I am turning insane

With happiness and eagerness. ```

3995

```

Every day God watches me

Affectionately and proudly

When I carry

My love-devotion-surrender

To His Peace-Altar.

```

3996

```

I see a new world

Inside each step

That my Master takes

To lead us and guide us

Towards our Destination.

```

3997

```

God’s Compassion-Eye

And my gratitude-heart

Dream of each other

Simultaneously. ```

3998

```

I wish to hear only one sound:

The sweetest and most profound

Soundless Sound

Of my Lord’s Forgiveness-Heart. ```

3999

```

Every day God gives me

The most beautiful flowers

And most delicious fruits

From His Light-Delight-Heart-Garden

To create God-hunger in me.

```

4000

```

A God-dreamer

I was.

A God-lover

I am.

A God-server

I shall become

And forever remain.

```
