501. Your idol


Your idol was doubt-king.
Lo, he has not only gone,
But he is shattered.

Your idol was jealousy.
Lo, she has not only left,
But she is shattered.

Your idol was hatred-prince.
Lo, he has not only departed,
But he is shattered.

502. When I obey you not

O Faith, when I obey you not
My earth becomes
The land of the departed sunset.

O Joy, when I obey you not
My life becomes
The cage of the departed soul.

503. You will be happy

Minimise your wants,
You will be happy.

Fulfil your needs,
You will be happy.

Divinise your thoughts,
You will be happy.

Immortalise your faith,
You will be happy.

Rectify your mistakes,
You will be happy.

Intensify your cry,
You will be happy.

504. The embrace

The embrace of bondage
Demands and commands.

The embrace of freedom
Offers and showers.

The embrace of passion
Entangles and strangles.

The embrace of faith
Beholds and unfolds.

505. His life closed three times

His life closed three times
Before its final close:
Once when he entered
Into the private chamber
Of the fear-queen,
Once when he entered
Into the cave
Of the doubt-monster,
Once when he threw himself
Into the flow
Of the insecurity-river.

506. Come, come

Come my heart, come.
I shall gladly unburden
The great burden of your tears.

Come my mind, come.
I shall cheerfully empty
The heavy load of your information.

Come my soul, come.
I shall immediately expedite
Your unprecedented dream
Of God-manifestation on earth.

507. God comes

Faith comes,
Doubt goes.

Courage comes,
Fear goes.

Truth comes,
Falsehood goes.

Love comes,
Hate goes.

God comes,
Oneness lasts.

508. Adamantine Will

When God-freedom
In me was crucified,
I fought life.
I received from God
His adamantine Will
Which now pulsates
From life to life.
It goes from start to start,
It runs from Vision to Reality.

509. Do it again

Do it again.
This time you will be able
To build the Palace of Truth.

Say it again.
This time you will be able
To tell the secrets of God.

Play it again.
This time you will be able
To say you are not God’s sleeping partner
In the fight against darkness and ignorance.

510. You can also help

You can help if you want.
Here are shining examples:
God wanted my unalloyed faith
And I gave it.
God wanted my dauntless love
And I gave it.
God wanted my constant surrender
And I gave it.
Likewise, if you want to help
He will give you the opportunity.
Just knock and ask;
God becomes yours.

511. Alas, how can I?

I want to be happy.
But alas, how can I,
When others are surpassing me?

I want to be happy.
But alas, how can I,
When others are governing me?

I want to be happy.
But alas, how can I,
Since I have not pleased my Inner Pilot,
Not even once?

I want to be happy.
But alas, how can I,
Since I know I can never be
What I want to be?

512. Life is what we make it

Life is what we make it.
Since I have realised this truth,
How can I fail
In the battlefield of life?

Life is what we make it.
Since I have realised this truth,
How can I forget
To keep my life a chance to embody the Real,
And manifest the transcendental Truth?
After all, it is I who shall share
Its matchless triumph.

513. This time I shall not fail you

Lord, can You love me again?
This time I shall not fail You.
This time I shall become
The breath of Your Heart.

Lord, can You love me again?
This time I shall not fail You.
This time I shall become
The message of Your Tongue.

Lord, can You love me again?
This time I shall not fail You.
This time I shall become
The light of Your Eye.

514. Who am I?

Who am I?
I asked God.
He said
I am His Dream-boat.

Who am I?
I asked Satan.
He said
I am his destruction-night.

Who am I?
I asked Heaven.
Heaven said
I am Heaven’s Reality-shore.

Who am I?
I asked earth.
Earth said
I am earth’s constant cry.
