1.

My heart needs only one freedom:
The freedom to dream.

2.

A depressed heart
Means a confessed failure.

3.

Because you are always depressed,
God has secretly told His choice children
That you are not a member
Of His inner Family.

4.

The Hour of God
Mercilessly threatens the doubting mind
And
Measurelessly enlightens the aspiring heart.

5.

O man of eloquence,
My mind sincerely admires you.

O man of silence,
My heart soulfully loves you.

6.

The farther away I am from my inner hunger,
The greater is my outer insecurity.

7.

Before you declare
That you have realised God,
Can you not tell the whole world
That God has truly and unconditionally
Loved your teeming ignorance?
Try it.
It may not be an easy task.

8.

You tell God:
"My Lord, will You accept what I have for You —
My eternity's hunger-cry?"

God tells you:
"My child, will you accept what I have for you —
My Immortality's Feast-Smile?"

9.

You live for yourself alone.
How do you then expect God to live with you
And any human being to die for you?

10.

Alas,
My mind, the silly talker,
Has taken away all the wisdom-light
That I received from my Lord's
Silence-Eye.

11.

Two souls
Meet to promise.

Two hearts
Meet to love.

Two minds
Meet to challenge.

12.

The quicker
I unlearn,
The wiser
I become,
The better
I love
My Beloved Supreme.

13.

An aspiring heart
Is the only secret-sharer
Of my sacred soul.

14.

My Lord,
I do not want to carry the heavy burden
Of knowledge anymore.
I wish to carry the tiny briefcase
Of wisdom-delight
Which You have given me
As a blessingful gift.
