1. My promise to God

My promise to God
I tell you in secret supreme.
Don't let anybody else know.
If they hear, they will laugh and laugh.
My promise is God-manifestation.
And I tell you,
This promise of mine
Has been a steady,
Illumining
And fulfilling relationship with God.

2. An authentic power

The peace-voice that breaks
Is an unauthentic power.
I knew it and I know it.

The love-choice that builds
Is an authentic power.
I knew it and I know it.

3. Your heart was eclipsed

Your heart was eclipsed by sin;
Therefore
Your body is exposed by failure.
And what is sin?
The strangling waves of your imagination-clouds.

4. Two betrayers

You are betrayed
By two things.
Do you know what they are?
They are your imagination-hunger
And
Your temptation-choice.

5. Drunk with joy

Drunk with joy
I saw the Face of God.

Drunk with love
I touched the Heart of God.

Drunk with peace
I sat
Plus
Stayed at the Feet of God.

6. My dawn died with me

My dawn died.
My dawn died with me
Reluctantly.

My noon dies.
My noon dies with me
Dauntlessly.

My evening shall die.
My evening shall die with me
Cheerfully.

7. God's God-Compassion

God calls it my divinity;
I call it God's God-Reality.

God calls it my perfection;
I call it God's God-Compassion.

8. Why do you quarrel?

Why do you quarrel with your indolence?
Who created it, after all?
You and your own stupidity-life.

Why do you quarrel with your failure?
Who created it, after all?
You and your own insincerity-mind.

9. When he was a baby God

When he was a baby God
Everybody loved him.

When he was a grown-up God
Everybody needed him.

When he was an old God
Everybody claimed him,
Even the real God Himself.

10. The road from dream to reality

All his nights are dreams,
All his days are realities.
His aspiring life
And
His surrendering heart
Have built the road
That leads from the dream-sky
To the reality-land.

11. Lord, save me

Lord, save me.
I talk too much.

Lord, save me.
I know so little.

12. You say

You say
You are a God-lover.
I do not know
Why or how you can afford
To hesitate so much.

You say
You are a God-fulfiller.
I do not know
Why or how you can afford
To sleep so much.

13. When I think

When I think,
God shouts at me from a distance:
"Stop thinking."

When I concentrate,
God runs to me and says:
"Continue, continue, My son."

When I meditate,
God says:
"I am so happy that you know
the supreme secret."

When I contemplate,
God says:
"For both of us nothing can ever
remain undone."

14. My Lord Supreme blessed me

My Lord Supreme blessed me
Not once, not twice
But thrice.
His first blessing gave me the power
To forget the hurting past.
His second blessing gave me the power
To face the challenging present.
His third blessing gave me the power
To welcome the fast-approaching future.
