When I use my mind,
I become the prisoner
Of my choice.
When I use my heart,
I become the fulfiller
Of my inner voice.

17102

Every day God asks you
To debate your mind’s
Nothingness-confusion-conclusion.

17103

You must realise
That true devotion to God
Is absolutely honey-sweet.

17104

You fool!
How do you dare
To underestimate
The extent of God’s
Compassion-Victory?

17105

Each impure thought in the mind
Is undoubtedly detrimental
To our fastest God-speed.

17106

Let us all pray to God
Most soulfully and most devotedly
To grant us
A nectar-flooded new year.

17107

The heart’s inner cry
Is not only beautiful
But also extremely, extremely powerful.

17108

My heart’s obedience is not only
My mind’s solution in my outer life
But also my heart’s perfection
In my inner life.

17109

I know so many things.
But, alas, I do not know why
I do not know
One simple thing:
How can my mind
Have so much pride?

17110

My Lord Supreme tells me
That only His Forgiveness-Smiles
Can purify and illumine
My entire being.

17111

My life’s flower-devotion
Can blossom
Only when I feel that I need
Only one thing
Sleeplessly and breathlessly,
And that thing is my aspiration.

17112

Do not exert yourself,
But sleeplessly give yourself
To win God’s smiling Eye.

17113

If you want to be happy,
Then every day
You must consciously ignore
Your mind’s suspicion-hounds.

17114

My life’s
Aspiration-devotion-perfection
And my Lord’s
Oneness-Fondness-Embrace
Are inseparable.
