15. Only from afar

He is brave
 From a safe distance.
She is beautiful
 From a far distance.
His aspiration works
 Only in distant skies.
Her realisation works
 Only on foreign shores.

16. Even they know it

Man is my kingdom.
I know it.
 Even my stupidity knows it.

Truth is my palace.
I know it.
 Even my insincerity knows it.

Love is my home.
I know it.
 Even my insecurity knows it.

God is my nest.
I know it.
 Even my ambiguity knows it.

17. Your Presence and absence

Lord, since You know
That Your Presence is my
Himalayan delight,
Why don’t You come to me
 More often?

Lord, since You know
That Your absence
Is my oceanic sorrow,
Why don’t You tell me
Why You are quite often,
In season and out of season,
 Absent?

18. Justifications

When you live
In the vital world
You justify slavery.

When you live
In the psychic world
You justify freedom.

When you live
In the physical world
You justify ignorance-frown.

When you live
In the God-world
You justify
 Everything within,
 Everything without.

19. Two perfect strangers

Human birth
 And
Divine freedom
Have no liking
For each other.

Human goal
 And
Divine soul
Act from dawn to dusk
Like two perfect strangers.

20. I measure not

I measure not
 My realisation-height.
It is too discouraging.

I measure not
 My perfection-light.
It is too disheartening.

I measure not
 My satisfaction-sun.
It is too frightening.

I measure
 Only one thing:
God’s Compassion-ocean.

21. What we are

 Eternity
Is my soul-splendour.

 Infinity
Is my soul-measure.

 Immortality
Is my soul-treasure.

  And I am
My world’s morning pleasure
  And
Evening pressure.

22. Dreams

 Silence-light
Is the dream
Of my earth-aspiration.

 Sound-power
Is the dream
Of my Heaven-vision.

 God-delight
Is the dream
Of my life-perfection.

23. The hopeful universe

He is crying;
 Therefore,
Divinity is hopeful.

He is smiling;
 Therefore,
Humanity is hopeful.

He is loving;
 Therefore,
God is hopeful.

He is becoming;
 Therefore
The entire universe is hopeful.

24. Real God, false God

 Who has made God?
He Himself.
 Who has made the small gods?
Man has made them.
 Who is a real God?
A silence-lover
  And
A sound-performer.
 Who is a false God?
A builder of temptation-palace
  And
A destroyer of love-nest.

25. What else can poor God do?

His dark insincerity
Is as deep as man’s weakness.
Yet God loves him.
What else can poor God do?

His fleeting sincerity
Is as shallow as man’s goodness.
Yet God loves him.
What else can poor God do?

His dreaming perfection
Is as impossible as man’s immortality.
Yet God loves him.
What else can poor God do?

26. Gifts of the true God

Love-smile
Is a gift of the true God.
Don’t lose it.
If you lose it,
You are undone.

Truth-cry
Is a gift of the true God.
Don’t lose it.
If you lose it,
Your life will be totally destroyed.

Surrender-perfection
Is a gift of the true God.
Don’t lose it.
If you lose it,
Your God-realisation will be indefinitely delayed.

27. It has already been given

If you need Love in your heart,
It has already been given by God.
Just feel it.

If you need Peace in your mind,
It has already been given by God.
Just believe it.

If you need Power in your vital,
It has already been given by God.
Just distribute it.

If you need Perfection in your body,
It has already been given by God.
Just offer it.

28. Showers

 My thought-life
Is a shower of blind folly.
 My will-life
Is a shower of bright glory.
 My surrender-life
Is a shower of perfect beauty.

29. The distance between

 My heart-cave
Is the distance
  Between
My hope and my despair.

 My life-hole
Is the distance
  Between
My victory and my defeat.

 My love-drop
Is the distance
  Between
My animal destruction
  And
My divine perfection.
