1.

Every morning
I weave a rainbow-garland
With my heart-beauty
And my soul-fragrance,
And then I place it
  At the Feet
Of my Lord Supreme.

2.

I was born of God’s Grace,
To see His Face
In the streaming tears of my heart
And in the beaming smiles of my soul.

3.

You do not have to surrender
  To destiny.
The power of destiny is limited.
The power of your soul is unlimited.
Be one — and remain one —
  With your soul
   All the time.

4.

My devotion-heart-eyes
Tearfully, smilingly and self-givingly
Follow the Footsteps
Of my Lord Supreme.

5.

When I look
At my Lord’s Eye,
  I become
A tiny, tender plant.

6.

When I enter
Into my Lord’s Heart,
  I become
A fully blossomed tree.

7.

When I prostrate myself
At my Lord's Feet,
  I become
The measureless Harvest.

8.

Light is
Self-expansion.

9.

Power is
Self-annihilation.

10.

Light eventually
Conquers.

11.

Power eventually
Surrenders.

12.

God lives everywhere,
But He prefers to live
In the heart-prison
Of every human being.

13.

Mother Kali
Is at once
  Terrifying
And sleeplessly
  Self-giving.

14.

Whenever I am
The boss of my life,
I get no peace.
