My Lord,
True, You do not show me Your Face.
But that does not mean
I cannot feel Your Heart.

My Lord,
True, I do not feel Your Heart.
But that does not mean
I do not know who You are —
You are my heart’s only choice.

3902. You call it self-command

You call it self-command.
I call it wisdom-light.
You call it wisdom-light.
I call it God-Delight.

3903. Our mental power

Each time we remember something,
We exercise our mental power.
Each time we rightly exercise
Our mental power,
We expedite God’s Hour.
Each time we wrongly exercise
Our mental power,
We delay God’s Hour.

3904. One of the true immortals

When you keep your mind on earth,
You become an object of pity.
When you send your mind to Heaven,
You become one of the true immortals.

3905. The world’s useless gifts

The world has nothing to tell you.
The world has nothing to give you.
Yet you are eagerly waiting for
The world’s meaningless advice
And
The world’s useless gifts.

3906. A bright place

The existence of a dark place
Means there is somewhere a bright place.
Who knows,
That bright place could be
Your own tiny little heart.

3907. The heart’s own illumination

If your mind admits
That it lives in confusion,
Then your heart will definitely
Have the capacity
To grant your mind
The heart’s own illumination.

3908. A spiritual Teacher knows

A spiritual Teacher knows
That his sea of compassion
Is another name
For his own perfection
Within and without.

3909. I have the heart to thank you

If I have the mind to thank you
For granting me liberation,
Then I also have the heart to thank you
For your satisfaction in me.

3910. A special way for me

My Lord,
You have a secret plan for me.
Therefore, I need You.
My Lord,
You have a special way for me.
Therefore, I love You.

3911. I am sailing

I am sailing the silver boat
Of my self-examination.
Soon I shall arrive
At the Golden Shore
Of my self-perfection.

3912. Free and perfect

Your doubting mind
Will be free
Only when you see the truth.

Your aspiring heart
Will be perfect
Only when you spread the truth.

3913. It seems that you are interested

It seems that you are interested
Only in immortalising
Your past defeats
And not in caring for
Your future victories.

3914. You do not have to worry

You do not have to worry
About suspicion.
Just do not live
Inside your binding mind.

You do not have to worry
About your aspiring heart.
Just lead a faithful life.
