1. Don’t think, don’t sleep

When he was a child,
One day
  His father said to him:
   “Don’t think, my child.
   God never thinks.”
Since then, he never cared
To learn the art of thinking.

When he was a child,
One day
  His mother said to him:
   “Don’t sleep, my child.
   God never sleeps.”
Since then, he never cared
To learn the art of sleeping.

2. Inspiration-seed, realisation-plant, manifestation-tree

  Yesterday
In my soul-house
I kept my inspiration-seed.

  Today
In my heart-room
I keep my realisation-plant.

  Tomorrow
At my body-door
I shall keep my manifestation-tree.

3. O seeker

O seeker of silence-beauty,
I long to fly with you.

O seeker of soul-smile,
I long to expand like you.

O seeker of God-Reality,
I long to be
  The Son-Light of the absolute King
  Like you, with you.

4. Tears

O clever tears
Of my eyes,
  Stop descending.

O secret tears
Of my heart,
  Start ascending.
God is awaiting your great arrival.

O sacred tears
Of my soul,
  I love you;
  I love you only.

Not because you have the world-treasure,
Not because you are the world-treasure,
But because you have chosen me
  As your very own.

5. Although I sleep

Although I sleep
During my morning meditation,
God appreciates my attempt.
   Therefore
I thank God.

Although I sleep
During my evening meditation,
I am proud of my attempt.
   Therefore
I love myself.

6. In one day

In one day
I became old:
When earth refused to accept
   My help.

In one day
I became young again:
When Heaven offered me
   His friendship.

In one day
I fed earth’s ageless hunger:
When earth showed me
   Her sunken sun.

7. God’s Plans

Music that I wish to hear,
God is planning to compose.

Love that I wish to feel,
God is planning to create.

Joy that I wish to become,
God is planning to offer.

Perfection that I wish to see,
God is planning to plant.

8. A man of God-substance

What was he?
A man of fabulous divinity!

What is he?
A man of imprisoned pride!

What is he going to be?
A man of God-substance,
A man of love-essence.

9. Quarrels with God

You quarrel with God
   Because
God has not granted you
   Realisation.

He quarrels with God
   Because
God has not given him
   Aspiration-kite.

I quarrel with God
   Because
God has not given me
   The capacity to manifest Him
     Completely on earth.

God quarrels with Himself
  Because
God feels that He could have created
  A far better world.

10. Therefore you failed

It was a poor preparation.
   Therefore
You failed.

It was a bad calculation.
   Therefore
You failed.

It was an abrupt depression.
   Therefore
You failed.

It was an unwarranted surrender.
   Therefore
You failed.

11. Your inner weather

Your inner weather
Is always foul
   Because
You do not dream
   High realities.

Your inner weather
Is always foul
   Because
You are afraid to face
   Your lifeless shadow
   Alone.

Your inner weather
Is always foul
   Because
You are fond of living
   In your puny
   Imagination-temptation world.

12. Expectations

As long as men are mortal
I expect nothing from them.
However, one thing I expect:
   Their gratitude-flames.

As long as the gods are immortal
I expect many things from them.
But perhaps one thing will do:
   Constant concern.

13. Do doubt, do question!

O my doubtful eyes,
When I think I am
Perfect perfection,
Do doubt my unprecedented discovery!

O my questioning mind,
When I act like a god,
Do question my authority!

14. Teach me

O energetic ant,
Do be my master sweet.
Teach me not to waste time.
Teach me how to walk along
   The patience-road.
Teach me simple, fruitful reality,
   Misnamed stupid simplicity.
