Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 164

Return to the table of contents

16301

O Lord Supreme,
May we say the right thing,
May we do the right thing
And may we become the right thing.
The right thing for us to say:
"We love You, God."
The right thing for us to do:
Serve God.
The right thing for us to become:
God's perfect children.

16302

My loving heart
Does not know what to do
With my mind's
Destructive anxiety-attacks.

16303

My mind's hope-rainbow
Is the precursor
Of my heart's promise-sunrise.

16304

I always keep
A purity-thought
At my mind-door
To protect my life.

16305

Open your mind-door.
Look!
Your opportunity-friend
Has come to help you
And fulfil you.

16306

The mind
That does not aspire
Cannot escape
Uncertainty-road's
Dead end.

16307

When you are eager
To serve God,
God's Omnipresence-Smile
Proudly blesses you.

16308

On earth,
God loves the peace-lovers
Most.
In Heaven,
God loves the satisfaction-distributors
Most.

16309

When we do something
With eagerness and enthusiasm,
We get a special Grace
From the Supreme
That tries to illumine or nullify
The wrong qualities in our lives.

16310

If you do not have
The breathless certainty of faith,
You will not be allowed
To be a passenger
In God's Manifestation-Boat.

16311

From now on
I shall live and work
Only in
My affection-concern-flooded
Heart-room.

16312

May my mind
Be as beautiful
As the morning sunrise.
May my heart
Be as peaceful
As the evening sunset.

16313

God tells me
That He enjoys immensely
My unexpected arrival
In His Heart.

16314

My Lord,
I want only one thing
From You every day,
And that thing
Is my ego's oblivion
Inside my heart's
Aspiration-sunrise.

16315

O my Lord,
You have so many friends!
Do You not think it
A sheer waste of time
To want to make friends
With my worthless and useless mind?

16316

How can the Supreme
Fail to fulfil
The Peace-Dream of His own Heart
In His own creation
On earth?

16317

Long before your life
Is possessed by possessions,
Can you not sing
Renunciation-song
And dance renunciation-dance?

16318

Sleeplessly God's Tears
Are falling on earth.
Why?
Because He sees clearly
That world-harmony
Is a far cry.

16319

He tries to steal
Compassion from Heaven.
He fails!
He tries to steal
Gratitude from earth.
He fails!

16320

When everything else fails,
Cry!
With your gratitude-heart-tears,
You are bound to succeed.

16321

Never worry about things
That you are unable to change.
Change your own way
Of looking at truth.
Look from a higher
And more encompassing
Life-tree branch.

16322

Make your compassion-heart
And dedication-life
Your divinely inspired trademarks.

16323

To make the fastest progress,
Enthusiasm must come first
In your life!

16324

If you do not open your mind
To new, uncharted horizons,
There will be a definite decline
In your aspiration-life.

16325

Your God-loving dreams
And your God-serving hopes
Will be anchored by God Himself
In His own Reality-World.

16326

Summon your soul-courage!
It will wrestle
Anxiety, doubt and impurity
Into submission.

16327

Do not wait until you have
A perfect consciousness!
It is always better
To serve God
And to do something good
For humanity
Immediately.

16328

Sympathise with others
In their mind-burden-pain
And you will also be able to share
In their heart-kite-joy.

16329

You will lose
Your friendship with God
If you think
That your version of truth
Is the only accurate
And perfect one.

16330

O my heart,
Always try to remain far above
The fruitless ignorance-dreams
Of the mind.
Never allow yourself
To be caught by them!

16331

Unwillingness
To do the right thing,
Unwillingness
To feel the right thing
And unwillingness
To become the right thing
Have destroyed
Humanity's God-fulfilment-promise.

16332

Inspiration I need
To appreciate the beauty
Of earth.

Aspiration I need
To appreciate the duty
Of life.

Realisation I need
To appreciate the Divinity
Of God.

16333

Every day
My soul is working
Extremely hard
To liberate my aspiration-life.

16334

If you do not stand
Face-to-face
Against ignorance-night,
God may love you,
But He will never
Need you.

16335

Ego does not live alone.
It always lives with
Its dear friends:
Frustration and destruction.

16336

Alas,
When I look for
Expectation-fulfilment-fountain,
I see everywhere nothing but
Lifeless and useless rocks.

16337

It does not take much time
For a seeker to learn
That his doubtful mind
Is nothing other than
A frustration-carrier.

16338

God-believers are crucified
Only because God wants them
To be infinitely more glorified
Than they otherwise would be.

16339

Every day God wants us
To look for a remedy
To cure our mind's
Unwillingness
And our body's laziness.

16340

Do not give up!
God does not want you to be
A defeated hope-life.

16341

To free yourself
From earth-desires,
You need to sow aspiration-seeds
In your heart-garden.

16342

I shall conquer my twenty defects
Faster than you will conquer your one,
If you don't have eagerness
And enthusiasm
In your spiritual life!

16343

If you serve the Supreme
In a low consciousness
Or out of fear,
How can you expect Him
To give you a passing mark?

16344

If you are
All the time absorbed
In your mind-satisfaction,
How can you ever think
Of God-manifestation?

16345

Today
My soul is determined
To terminate
My lifelong entanglement
With confusion-night.

16346

If your spiritual life
Is a passing fancy,
Your life's
Perfection-fulfilment-promise
Will always remain a far cry.

16347

Each cheerful thought
Is a forward step
Towards your supreme Destination.

16348

If there is no faith,
There can be no hope.
If there is no hope,
There can be no promise.
If there is no promise
From earth,
Then there can be no smile
From Heaven.

16349

Man's exaggerated preoccupation
With himself
Is ruining the entire world!

16350

My Lord,
Will there be any time
When You will be ready
To change Your Mind,
Since I am too weak
To change mine?

16351

O my mind,
Whenever I see you
Heavily drunk with doubt,
I do not know how and why
God's Compassion-Light
Can flow in and through you.

16352

If you want to leave
The past behind,
You have to know
That this decision of yours
Has come from the blessingful Compassion
Of the Lord Supreme.

16353

If you maintain
Your outer excitement,
How will you receive
The inner enlightenment?

16354

Do not surrender your will
To your deplorable fate!
Surrender your will
Only to God's all-loving,
All-protecting, all-illumining
And all-fulfilling Heart.

16355

The true believers in truth
And the true lovers of God
Can never fall
Into a serious dispute.

16356

Alas,
What we see in our inner life
And in our outer life
Is the same:
Mounting expectation-flames!

16357

My unconditional faith
Is by far the best custodian
Of God's infinite Compassion.

16358

Your mind and vital
Are not allowing you to see
The immensity of your heart.

16359

One day
Your soul will put
Tremendous pressure
On your mind and vital,
So you will value your aspiring heart.
The sooner the better!

16360

Once you see the height and depth
Of your inner life,
You will be able to run
Faster than the fastest
Along Eternity's Road.

16361

Even if you work mechanically,
Without enthusiasm,
The Supreme will be more pleased with you
Than with someone who works
With countless negative forces.

16362

The mind does not know
Where the heart is.
The heart does not know
What the mind wants.

16363

In our inner life of prayer
We want to love the Supreme.
In our outer life of action
We want to serve the Supreme
And be true members
Of the universal family.

16364

Alas,
Many older seekers feel
That they have one foot in the grave,
Or that they can enjoy
Retirement-relaxation.
Absolutely untrue!
God wishes all His children,
Young and old,
To have the same sleepless determination,
Enthusiasm and willingness
To serve Him.

16365

Continue, continue
With your oneness-sympathy,
Oneness-compassion
And oneness-love
For God's manifestation!

16366

You may not have
Many undivine forces
Inside you,
But if you do not have enthusiasm
And eagerness
How can you make satisfactory progress?

16367

You and I and everybody
Have to be faithful
Only to one Being,
And that Being
Is the Lord Beloved Supreme
Inside our hearts.

16368

If you look
From the mountaintop of aspiration
At your many problems,
They will seem very small.

16369

You are very happy and proud
That you have climbed up
The aspiration-tree.
But still you must reach
The high, higher, highest branches!

16370

Why are you unhappy
While you are with your Master?
Because although your body is with him,
Your mind is somewhere else!

16371

You may not be able
To work for God
In a perfect consciousness.
But at least work for Him
With your imperfect consciousness!

16372

Many fail at times
In the life-examination.
But even among the failures,
Why must you be the worst?
You can be the very best!

16373

When your heart's
Aspiration-flower
Smiles,
That is the time
God comes and claims you
As a choice instrument
Of His.

16374

You may be angry with God
For something He has asked you to do.
But why must you add
Other negative factors:
Haughtiness, disobedience and impurity?

16375

The embodiment of faithfulness
Is what we have to be
In the Heart
Of our Lord Beloved Supreme.

16376

Divine Grace will descend
On those who want to cultivate
Aspiration and dedication
At every second.

16377

Replace your mind's fear
With your heart's faith.
You will be able to zoom
Forward, upward, inward
All-where.

16378

This is the message
You are giving to me
And I am giving to you:
We must be faithful to God!

16379

I may escape
From my responsibilities
For the moment,
But how long can I continue
To escape?

16380

The day is always
Filled with negative forces,
But by using your enthusiasm,
You can conquer them.

16381

The higher you climb up
The God-realisation-tree,
The better your God-manifestation
On earth.

16382

If your spiritual life-roots
Are not strong,
Then you will not be able
To manifest God satisfactorily
In any part of the world.

16383

O stupid mind,
Why do you try
To delay the inevitable?
Can you not see that God
Is fast approaching
Your mind-jungle-thorns?

16384

God will never delay
Quenching your God-thirst,
If your God-thirst
Is breathless and desperate.

16385

What has happened to your inner life?
Over the years
Lethargy has devoured you,
And now you don't want
To budge an inch.

16386

The seeker gives God
A special delight
When he asks God
For the gift of God-Vision.

16387

O seeker,
Use your familiarity-fragrance wisely.
If not, you are bound to lose
Your most precious wealth:
Devotion-light.

16388

To be happy,
You don't have to be
Near your Master outwardly —
Just inwardly!

16389

No matter where they go,
People who have lots of complaints
Will never be happy.

16390

You may be a professional self-doubter,
But God the Lover will bless you
With His Compassion-Forgiveness-Power,
Plus help you to become
A true self-awakener.

16391

God and His Forgiveness-Heart
Are always ready to console me
For my failure-experiences.
God and His Satisfaction-Eye
Are always ready to extol
My heart's progress-promise.

16392

When we do not aspire,
We fearfully see
That death is our breath-collector.
But when we aspire,
We clearly see
That death is actually
The supplier of a new life-breath.

16393

Unaspiring seekers
Do not want to be in the rear.
Aspiring seekers
Do not have any preference.
They know that their sole goal
Is to pray with sincerity
And meditate with intensity.

16394

We come to the spiritual life
Only for the Supreme.
But He will be happy
If we can also receive something
From our fellow seekers.

16395

You have to cultivate
Your own happiness.
Of course,
Your willingness, need
And eagerness to cultivate it
Come from the Supreme Himself.

16396

My soul's blessingful suggestion to me:
What I need for my perfection-life is
A simplicity-mind,
A purity heart
And a surrender-life.

16397

Luckily the Supreme
Has some good children.
But they can become better
To inspire the rest of the world.

16398

You may be poorer than the poorest.
But by showing your heart-power
And bringing forward
Your heart's wealth,
You can accomplish everything
For the Supreme.

16399

The seeker-farmer has to plough
And sow the aspiration-seeds.
Then only from Above
God's Compassion-Rain will descend
To produce a rich harvest eventually.

16400

What is obedience
If not immediate progress?
What is progress
If not immediate satisfaction?
What is satisfaction
If not God-fulfilment
In God's own Way?
