201. The story of perhaps

When he lives in the mind
He speaks to the fruitless perhaps.

When he lives in the heart
He sings for the hopeless perhaps.

When he lives in the vital
He plays with the worthless perhaps.

When he lives in the body
He dances with the lifeless perhaps.

202. My soul is the player

My thought is the doubt,
My mind the doubter.

My feeling is the love,
My heart the lover.

My desire is the destruction,
My vital the destroyer.

My ignorance is the sleep,
My body the sleeper.

My will is the play,
My soul the player.

203. Reality’s Immortality

  Thousands of years ago
He cried for the Throne.
  Hundreds of years ago
He saw the Throne.
  Two hundred years ago
He touched the Throne.
  One hundred years ago
He sat on the Throne.
  He was captured by Divinity’s Beauty.

Now he has become the Throne.
  He is claimed by
Reality’s Immortality.

204. Save and except

He can resist everything
Save and except temptation.

He can resist everything
Save and except his yesterday’s failure.

He can resist everything
Save and except his today’s frustration.

He can resist everything
Save and except his tomorrow’s perhaps.

He can resist everything
Save and except his Master’s Compassion.

205. He died

He died for the Goddess of Beauty.
She saw him not.

He died for the Goddess of Wealth.
She blessed him not.

He died for the Goddess of Love.
She granted not an iota of love to him.

He died for the Goddess of Duty.
She descended.
She came.
She blessed.
She perfected.
She fulfilled.
She immortalised
His life of desire without,
His life of aspiration within.

206. Don’t worry!

  O Body, don’t worry!
I have not yet
Begun to rest.

  O Vital, don’t worry!
I have not yet
Begun to fight.

  O Mind, don’t worry!
I have not yet
Begun to think.

  O Heart, don’t worry!
I have not yet
Begun to love.

  O Soul, don’t worry!
I have not yet
Begun to manifest.

My dear friends,
When the hour strikes
I shall play my roles
In your inspiration-flowers,
With your aspiration-flames,
And for your realisation-Sun.

207. I wasted time

Foolishly I wasted time.
Time now wastes me cheerfully.

Unconditionally I wasted time.
Time now wastes me sovereignly.

I wasted time
  Because
Time was heavily
Hanging on me,
  My impotent shoulders.

Time wastes me
  Because
Time knows that I am
An unimportant member,
A beggar in the universal family of beggars.

208. Command and obey

Faith to command,
Doubt to obey.

Purity to command,
Impurity to obey.

Light to command,
Darkness to obey.

   But
Soul-Love to command,
Soul-Love to obey.

God-Will to command,
God-Will to obey.

209. My God, my God!

My God, my God,
Why have You forsaken me?
  Have I told a lie?
  “No, never!”
  Have I betrayed You?
  “No, never!”
  Have I condemned Your world?
  “No, never!”
  Have I tried to dethrone You?
  “No, never!”

My Lord, my Lord,
  Why have You then
   Forsaken me?
     Why?
  “Dive deep within,
  And discover the answer.”

210. Necessary and unnecessary evils

Desire,
  A necessary evil.
Money-power,
  A necessary evil.
Compromise-net,
  A necessary evil.

   BUT

Doubt,
  An unnecessary evil.
Jealousy,
  An unnecessary evil.
Insecurity,
  An unnecessary evil.

211. Never and ever

Never the two shall meet:
  Doubt and faith.
Never the two shall meet.

Never the two shall meet:
  Love and hatred.
Never the two shall meet.

Never the two shall meet:
  Aspiration-flame and desire-cloud.
Never the two shall meet.

Ever the two shall meet:
  God and man,
  Life and death,
  Ignorance-sea and Reality-Shore.
Ever the two shall meet.

212. Who says no?

     Who says
No man can serve two masters?
I say one can.
One can serve his master, Doubt.
One can serve his master, Faith.

     Who says
No one can serve two masters?
I say one can.
One can serve his master, Frustration-Life.
One can serve his master, God-Compassion.

213. Alas!

No man thinks
  He is weak.
No woman thinks
  She is ugly.
No thought thinks
  It is poor.
No doubt feels
  It can be vanquished.
No old man feels
  He is empty of advice.
No young man suspects
  He shall ever die.

214. Not that I love you less

O Earth, not that I love you less,
But I love Heaven more.

O Dream, not that I love you less,
But I love Reality more.

O Man, not that I love you less,
But I love God more.

O God-realisation, not that I love you less,
But I love God-fulfilment more.
