1. Nowhere

Nowhere to live?
Try my heart-home.
I think you will like it.

Nowhere to sleep?
Try my soul-room.
I am sure you will love it.
Just love it.

2. A beggar

Yesterday
I acted like a beggar
By asking God
To give me a smile.

Today
I am acting like a beggar
By asking God
To give me His Power.

Tomorrow
I shall be acting like a beggar
By asking God
To make me His only perfect instrument.

3. Father, do I have a mission

Father, do I have a mission?
Daughter, you have not one
But two missions,
secret and sacred.
Your heart of life is your secret mission.
Your life of heart is your sacred mission.

4. Do you know, daughter

Do you know, daughter,
Why God loves you?
No, Father, I do not know.
He loves you
Because
You are a good player of love-game.

Do you know, daughter,
Why God is devoted to you?
No, Father, I do not know.
God is devoted to you
Because
You are a superb player of devotion-game.

Do you know, daughter,
Why God has surrendered to you?
No, Father, I do not know.
God has surrendered to you
Because
You are an excellent player of surrender-light.

5. What are they

What is earth,
If not the splendour of sacrifice-might?
What is Heaven,
If not the splendour of vision-light?
What is humanity,
If not the splendour of expectation-soul?
What is divinity,
If not the splendour of ecstasy-sea?

6. You are thinking

You are thinking of yourself.
Lo, you are descending
From
The human life to the animal life.

You are thinking of God.
Lo, you are ascending
From
The human life to the Life divine.

You have started loving God.
Lo, you are singing and playing
With
God’s Silence-Height
And
God’s Oneness-Light.

7. A full and complete truth

I love God.
Indeed,
This is a stark lie.
I think of God.
Indeed,
This is a quarter truth.
I do not find faults with God.
Indeed,
This is a half truth.
I never doubt God’s existence.
Indeed,
This is a full and complete truth.

8. Believe me

There is no difference
And
There can be no difference
Between
Love-touch and God-Touch.
Believe me, O aspiration-soul!

There is no difference
And
There can be no difference
Between
Fear-touch and death-touch.
Believe me, O desire-life!

9. Yesterday, today and tomorrow

Yesterday
I cried to live
In God’s Dream-Boat.
Today
I long to reach
God’s Reality-Shore.
Tomorrow
I shall pine to be
God’s Perfection-Smile.

10. You want to know

You want to know my past:
I was an unparalleled escapist.
You want to know my present:
I am a shameless opportunist.
You want to know my future:
I shall become
And end my life
As a false idealist.

11. A series of mysteries

Earth-body
Is a mystery of loveliness.
Earth-vital
Is a mystery of strangeness.
Earth-mind
Is a mystery of loneliness.
Earth-heart
Is a mystery of holiness.
Earth-soul
Is a mystery of perfectiveness.

12. My three dreams

My old dream
Is nothing but a faded flower.
My new dream
Is nothing but a wild animal.
My God-dream
Is nothing but a climbing life.

13. My mind-life, my heart-life, my soul-life

My mind-life
Is a useless thing to ignore.
My heart-life
Is a holy thing to see.
My soul-life
Is a perfect thing to offer.

14. I do not know

Where is God?
I do not know.
Who is God?
I do not know.
Shall I become
Someday
Another God?
I do not know.
But,
One thing I do know:
He loves me
And
He is all for me.
