201. I wrote to you for help

O my soul,
I wrote to you
For help
In my God-manifestation.
Alas,
Your answer could have been
More generous.

O my heart,
I wrote to you
For help
In my God-manifestation.
Alas,
Your poor response
Fails to inspire me.

O my mind,
I wrote to you
For help
In my God-manifestation.
Alas,
Your obscure answer
Puzzles me.

O my vital,
I wrote to you
For help
In my God-manifestation.
Alas,
Your senseless answer
Frustrates me.

O my body,
I didn’t write to you
Because
I didn’t know
Whom to choose
Between you
And ignorance.

202. Many happy returns

On my birthday
Earth-consciousness says:
“Many happy returns.”
Heaven-Delight says:
“Your every happy return to earth-life
Is also a happy step towards My Palace.”
Alas,
Life on earth
Is temptation-frustration.
Life in Heaven
Is examination-clarification.

203. His love taught him

His love of God
Taught him
How to descend
Into the world-night.

His love of man
Taught him
How to forget
His Immortality’s height.

204. Life-passage and love-message

Where is the world-soul?
The world-soul
Is inside my blossoming vision.

What shall I do with it?
I shall give it out.

To whom?
To those who know that
Life-passage and love-message
Are one,
Inseparably one.

205. Alternatives

Choose!
God-life or man-perfection.
Choose!

Choose!
God-edifice or man-sacrifice.
Choose!

Choose!
God-power or man-love.
Choose!

206. My prayers

My doubtful prayers
Are my prayers of clay.

My soulful prayers
Are my prayers of day.

My thought-covered prayers
Are my prayers of frustration.

My silence-filled prayers
Are my prayers of destination.

207. Where they live

His heart lives
In the sea of loneliness.

His mind lives
In the pool of loneliness.

His vital lives
In the pyre of depression.

His body lives
In the cave of perdition.

208. My love-telescope

When I use
My time-telescope,
I suffer from dark uncertain night.

When I use
My love-telescope,
I build the palace of life
In the kingdom of God-Light.

209. O light, O trance

O light of trance,
Where are you?
O trance of night,
Where are you not?
O night of trance,
Where can I kill you?
O Light, O trance,
I am of you.
O night, O trance,
God is there for you.

210. Knowledge-sun, lustre-moon

I eat,
And yet I eat not
Ignorance-night.

I drink,
And yet I drink not
Ignorance-sea.

I eat not,
And yet I eat
Knowledge-sun.

I drink not,
And yet I drink
Lustre-moon.

211. When he represents

He is one
When he represents
Truth and Light.

He is one
When he represents
Love and Life.

He is two
When he represents
His Inner Faith
And
His Outer Doubt.

He is many
When he represents
Earth-Bondage-Night
And
Heaven-Freedom-Bliss.

212. Four messages

The message of his vital:
Life is a self-imposed struggle.

The message of his mind:
Life is a self-exposed-bondage.

The message of his heart:
Life is a God-inviting hope.

The message of his body:
Life is a death-manifesting ignorance.

213. My journey

Earth is not
My journey’s start.

Heaven is not
My journey’s close.

My journey is
The birthless Lover on earth.

My journey is
The deathless Beloved in Heaven.

214. Say not anything against me

O life,
I love you.
I love your sound-wave.
Therefore,
Say not anything against me.

O death,
I love you.
I love your silence-peace.
Therefore,
Say not anything against me.
