Preface

This book reveals a soulful conversation between a seeker and his heart.

— Sri Chinmoy

1.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because you do not complain.

2.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because you do not blame others
For your failures.

3.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because you have enthroned
My Eternity's soul-child.

4.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because in you God preserves
And treasures
His Immortality's Dream.

5.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of your soulful prayers
My Lord Supreme has shattered
My mind's doubt-vessels.

6.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you,
Only because of you,
I know that God loves me.

7.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because you pray
To my Lord Supreme
Not only for those who love you
But also for those who do not.

8.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you I have
A God-protected life.

9.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you I have become
A favourite child of God,
And because of you I shall remain
Forever so.

10.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you, at any moment
I can have a glimpse of God's
Infinite Peace, infinite Light.

11.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you
My songless mind,
My soulless mind
And even my godless mind
Will someday
Be totally transformed.

12.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you,
Only because of you,
I am not so unimportant
And not so insignificant
Here on earth.

13.

My heart, I love you.
Why?
Because of you,
Only, only, only because of you,
My Lord Supreme is transforming
My earth-bound desire
Into His Heaven-free Will-
Only, only, only because of you.
