151. Next time I shall win

My body gives me
The consoling news:
Next time I shall win
In the battlefield of life.

My vital gives me
The exciting news:
Next time I shall win
Without fail the cosmic game.

My mind gives me
The inspiring news:
Next time I shall win
Infinity’s sweetest embrace.

My heart gives me
The aspiring news:
Next time I shall win
Immortality’s ever-climbing wings.

152. Three sons

Three sons:
The youngest, the middle and the eldest.

The youngest son said:
“Father is in Heaven.”

The middle son said:
“The Kingdom of Heaven is in your heart.”

The eldest son said:
“I and my Father are one.”

To the youngest son, the Father said:
“Son, thank you for your vision.”

To the middle son, the Father said:
“Son, thank you for your mission.”

To the eldest son, the Father said:
“Son, thank you for your union.”

153. One day’s patience

One day’s patience
Awakens ten days’ peace.

Ten days’ peace
Expedites God’s Hour.

God’s Hour dawns
In surrender’s sky.

154. A tree without roots

Life without love
Is a flower
Without fragrance.

Love without oneness
Is a fruit
Without taste.

Oneness without God
Is a tree
Without roots.

155. When his boasting-boat sank

When
His boasting-boat sank,
His dignity-shore neared.

When
His dignity-shore neared,
God accompanied it.

Now
God has given him
What He is:
Life-flower,
Love-fruit.

156. He does not answer all letters

He
Does not answer all letters.
He
Awakens all hearts.
He
Does not awaken all hearts.
He
Feeds all souls.
He
Does not feed all souls.
He
Implores God
To feed all souls,
To awaken all hearts,
To answer all letters.

157. A brake

You are afraid of Bliss.
That means
You will be using a brake
On your inner progress.

You are afraid of Silence.
That means
You are using a brake
On your soaring progress.

You are afraid of Love.
That means
You have already used a brake
On your supreme progress.

158. Your smile, your joy, your love

Your smile
Is your property undisputed.
Your joy
Is your prosperity unchallenged.
Your love
Is your divinity unparalleled.

159. The shortest route

Self-doubt
Is the shortest route
From the cradle
To the grave.

Self-faith
Is the shortest route
From the grave
To the cradle.

God
Is the shortest and safest route
From the earth-cradle
To the Heaven-cradle.

160. Until

The world does not honour
A great man
Until he is dead.

The world does not love
A good man
Until he is dead.

The world does not claim
A god-man
Until he is gone.

161. The echo

Light is the echo
Of God’s Voice
Inside the Love-Kingdom
Of my soul.

Surrender is the echo
Of God’s Voice
Inside the Perfection-Palace
Of my life.

162. Contradict

Contradict a man,
He will tell you
Everything he knows
About himself.

Contradict a woman,
She will tell you
Everything you do not want to know
About yourself.

Contradict your lower self,
You will be happy.

Contradict your higher self,
You will be doomed.

Contradict God,
He will definitely forgive you.

163. A one-way street and a two-way street

Compromise is a one-way street:
Look, and then proceed
In the right direction.

Surrender is a two-way street:
No need to look,
Just proceed the fastest
Along the earth-free and Heaven-proud Road.

164. My heart is still running

My body NEVER
Started the race.

My vital died
Along the way.

My mind gave up
After covering half the distance.

My heart is still running
In spite of tremendous fatigue and weariness.

My soul is watching
My poor heart.

My Supreme is beckoning
My brave heart.
