251. Current events

God has at last found
A home on earth.
Man’s gratitude
Has agreed to grant God
A temporary shelter.

Man is tired of his frustration.

Human doubt is doubting
Its proud judgement
And sure assurance.

Man’s pleasure-life
Has realised its folly
And it now wants the joy-life
To replace its long-standing career.

252. My rights

I stood up for my rights.
My rights demanded
The life of universal acceptance
And the life of universal recognition.

I stand up for my rights.
My rights demand
My heart’s cry and my life’s smile.

I shall stand up for my rights.
My rights shall demand
The surrender-moon
From the world of aspiration-sun.

253. Adventure and progress

Truth-adventure

Life-adventure
Is
Soul-progress.

Soul-adventure
Is
God-progress.

God-adventure
Is
Mineral-progress
Plant-progress
Man-progress
Creation-progress
Creator-progress.

254. Where is the secret place of safety?

Where is the secret place of safety?
In the mind-pond? No!
Where is the secret place of safety?
In the heart-lake? No!
Where is the secret place of safety?
In the soul-river? No!
Where is the secret place of safety?
In the self-sea? No!
Where is the secret place of safety?
In the life of Love divine? Yes!

255. My diary

In the early hours of dawn,
In the late hours of night
I write my diary.
My diary houses only one word:
Gratitude.
Gratitude to God’s Compassion,
Gratitude to man’s service,
Gratitude to the thought of my self-transcendence,
Gratitude to my self-enquiry,
Gratitude to my God-discovery.

256. Human and divine

A human communist
Is he
Who takes from some
And gives to others.

A divine communist
Is he
Who takes from himself
And offers to others.

A human socialist
Is he
Whom the vital of society loves.

A divine socialist
Is he
Who loves the heart of society.

A human god
Is he
Who lives in ignorance-sea.

A divine God
Is He
Who lives for ignorance-sea.

257. Oneness-light

One mouth spoke,
One hand wrote,
One hand drove.
Destination offered its pride sublime
To their perfection-height.
Perfection offered its pride sublime
To their aspiration-might.
Aspiration offered its pride sublime
To their oneness-light.

258. The dance

The dance of desires
Never ends.
Although the dancers
Become tired and breathless,
The dance of desires
Never ends.

The dance of fulfilment
Never begins.
Although man
Cries and sighs,
The dance of fulfilment
Never begins.

259. Your richest gain

Your richest gain
Was not in silver.

Your richest gain
Is not in gold.

Your richest gain
Shall not be in diamonds.

Your richest gain
Was in Realisation-seed.

Your richest gain
Is in Revelation-plant.

Your richest gain
Shall be in Manifestation-tree.

260. Eternally you can be happy

You are unhappy.
Therefore you walk
From the mental pillar to the vital post
And
From the vital post to the mental pillar.

You are happy.
Therefore you run
From your surrendering heart to your illumining soul
And
From your illumining soul to your surrendering heart.

You will be eternally happy
If you fly
From man’s dream-land to God’s Reality-sky
And
From God’s Reality-sky to man’s dream-land.

261. Man forgets

Man forgets
That his vital is swayed by desires.

Man forgets
That his mind constantly wanders.

Man forgets
That his days on earth are short.

Man forgets
That his real needs are very few.

Man forgets
That he has only God to call his own,
His very own.

262. Fourteen happy days

Tolstoy had fourteen happy days
During his entire earth-pilgrimage.

I still have not counted
My happy days on earth.
But I am so proud
To tell the world
That man, angel and God
Have kindly done the job for me.

Man’s conclusion: fourteen seconds.
Angel’s assumption: fourteen years.
God’s revelation: fourteen aeons.

263. I am of God and I am for God

Helpless is Time
When I sleep.

Useless is Time
When I doubt.

Hopeless is Time
When I despair.

Godless is Time
When I halt.

Measureless is Time
When I move.

Birthless is Time
When I am of God.

Deathless is Time
When I am for God.

264. Everybody has his allotted job

I don’t speak ill of myself.
Why?
I don’t want to take away
The job of my enemies.

I don’t speak well of myself.
Why?
I am afraid it won’t look nice
If I do the job of God.
