Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 169

Return to the table of contents


The heart needs happiness
At every moment
So it can move forward,
Dive inward
And fly upward.


Our life gets constant movement
Forward, upward and inward
From our enthusiasm, goodwill
And physical dynamism.


With the dynamism of your vital
And the self-giving qualities
Of your heart,
You can inspire humanity.


Inspiration is of supreme importance,
Since from inspiration
We get aspiration,
Which is sincere longing for God.


Will be supremely successful
Only if it is done with sincere willingness,
Cheerfulness and self-offering.


Nature’s beauty helps us
To be as vast as possible,
As peaceful as possible
And as pure as possible.


Only in our heart-boat
Can we go to the illumination-shore,
Which is the universal Goal.


When your heart speaks
To my heart,
You don’t have to say a word.


To have a feeling of oneness
With God’s Heart
Means you have already started walking
Along the right road.


Each good thought
Is a sweetness-dream
From a higher world,
Which we are trying to transform
Into reality.


It is not your mind or vital,
But only your heart,
That is longing for something good,
Something divine,
Something supreme.


Offer your life at every moment
To a good cause:
To do something worthwhile
For mankind.


Begin your new life
In the New Year
With tremendous enthusiasm,
Tremendous determination
And tremendous self-giving.


A seeker must bring forward
All his inner determination
To challenge ignorance
And show that spirituality
Is infinitely stronger.


God’s manifestation on earth
Always takes place through teamwork.
God will never claim the glory
All for Himself.


Serve God the way God wants you
To serve Him.
Inwardly you will deserve
His blessingful Gratitude
And outwardly you will get
His Appreciation and Admiration.


As affectionate parents
Immediately try to take away
Their little child’s suffering,
So also the Supreme,
Our affectionate Father,
Has many times tried
To take away our self-inflicted pain.


At once
The seeker-heart comes forward
When it feels the soulful sincerity
In a divine song.


The philosophy of spiritual Masters
Of the hoary past:
“Try, and then place the results
At the Feet of the Supreme.”
The philosophy of Masters of today:
“If you really try,
There is bound to come a time
When your life-tree will bear


If you have a true oneness-heart,
You will feel
What I am feeling.
A sympathetic heart
Encompasses the entire world.


Mother Earth is very happy
That God is still playing with her
The way He used to
Many years ago.


You may be old,
But inwardly
You do not have to behave
Like an old person.
The Supreme is a perfect example!


Bring to your mind’s forefront
Three good qualities of yours,
Then soulfully expand them
And powerfully multiply them.
Lo, your life will be transformed!


O my Lord Supreme,
I am offering You
My heart’s impurity,
I am offering You
My mind’s insincerity,
I am offering You
My life’s insecurity
So that I may become
A supremely choice instrument of yours.


If you want to get tremendous joy,
Just watch and see
How your good qualities
Are increasing
And your bad qualities
Are decreasing.


Each time we think
Of others’ imperfections,
We must feel most sincerely
That we are misusing and losing
The most precious life-breath
Of our God-realisation-dream.


Only a heart of sympathy,
A heart of compassion
And a heart of oneness
Can feel what God truly is.


He who has infinitely more love
For our dear ones
Than we do
Deserves to have them with Him
Whenever He needs them.


If we really care for
The heart’s oneness-love,
Then God will always provide us
With boundless opportunities
Here on earth
To express our own love
And to be loved by others.


His aim is to inspire
Each and every citizen of the world
With his love of God.


While exhibiting
Your most praiseworthy talents
To the world,
Do not forget to also offer
Your sweetness, affection and love.


Every day
You can inspire others
Through your sincere concern
For humanity’s happiness and progress.


O God,
Do stay inside
My small heart
But not inside
My big mouth!


If God lives
In my tiny heart,
Then only am I safe.


Many times
I have opened my big mouth
Only to abuse God,
And then to suffer and suffer.


God is begging you
To develop your oneness-heart.
Alas, your division-mind
Is destroying everything,
Even poor God!


When you hurl arrows at God
In the inner world,
God will definitely give you a zero,
And that zero
Is your worst punishment.


An act that God’s outer Mind
Calls stupidity,
God’s inner Heart calls Compassion
And nothing else.


What has happened?
You have climbed up
The tree of aspiration,
Only to come down again —
Right to the bottom!


Out of His infinite Bounty
God gives us opportunities
To become good citizens of the world,
To become His divine, supreme instruments
For world-transformation.


If you work soulfully
With a oneness-heart,
You will become the dear,
Dearer, dearest instrument
Of the Supreme.


What is God’s Dream?
Perfection of human life,
Perfection of human nature!


It is God who has made the world
But it is we who must utilise it
For the right purpose.


We may say that we have tried
Very hard.
But God is telling us
That we have not tried
Hard enough.


With your soul-power,
With your heart-power,
You must shake the life-tree
Of your country
To receive its most delicious fruits
And most beautiful flowers.


O seeker,
Ask yourself one question:
Do you want to be
God’s Headache and Heart attack,
Or do you want to be
God’s Crown?


No matter how many ways you try,
There is always one more way
That you have not yet tried
To please your Beloved Supreme.


Once you have entered
The spiritual life,
You do not belong
To any one country;
You belong to the Heart
Of the Supreme.


If you have never been faithful
To God’s Will,
Now is the golden opportunity
For you to do it at last!


With our life’s soulfulness,
With our mind’s willingness
And with our heart’s oneness,
Let us achieve the supreme Victory
For our Beloved Lord Supreme:
Peace — our Lord’s Peace-Dream.


Exercise your imagination-power!
You are bound to feel
That God’s Sadness and God’s Tears
Are infinitely, infinitely greater
Than humanity’s,
For the world is His creation,
His Dream.


Be a devoted, soulful server
Of humanity.
God will definitely be proud of you —
Infinitely more proud
Than you can ever imagine!


My confusion-knife,
My uncertainty-knife,
My deception-knife
And my destruction-knife
Have shamelessly and ruthlessly
The loving and compassionate
Heart of God.


The Supreme is so happy
That He still has infinite children
In His creation
Who will not allow
His Peace-Dream on earth
To remain unfulfilled.


Your conscious love for God,
Your sleepless affection for God
And your breathless fondness for God
Will eventually manifest
His transcendental Divinity
Here on earth.


Do you know
Where the Supreme is?
He is all the time dreaming
In His infinite Light and Delight.


As you and I dream of peace,
Even so, there are many other
Dreamers of peace.
They are crying inside our hearts,
And we are crying inside their hearts.


If you cannot develop
Soulful devotion inside your life,
You will miss
A golden opportunity
To run faster than the fastest
Into the Heart of your Beloved Supreme.


Those who become part and parcel
Of any spiritual activity
Become one soul, one heart,
One aspiration, one dedication.


Your aspiration-song
Is not just one of the many
Ordinary things
You can have in life,
But something meaningful, powerful
And fruitful.


Sometimes we need
But never do we need


If you don’t belong to God,
Then you belong only to yourself —
To your stupidity,
Which takes you away from
Your own reality.


The lethargic and self-sufficient seeker
Needs nothing from the spiritual life.
The dynamic and God-dependent seeker
Not only needs something
From the spiritual life
But also wants to offer something
Very special to God.


Keep yourself happy
By keeping yourself busy!
Do not stay in a corner
Thinking and brooding!


True oneness is so strong,
Pure and self-giving
That before your friend asks you,
You will fulfil his heart’s need.


In his heart-life
He felt miserable
That he did not sing
God’s universal Oneness-Song
When he had the golden opportunity.


Do you not know
That God has forgiven you?
Something more:
God’s Grace is descending
Upon you powerfully
So that you will not repeat
The same mistakes again.


If you really appreciate something,
You will try to possess it.
Just learn divinity-songs by heart.
Lo, the divinity that they embody
Will be yours,
Your very own.


Your deliberate lack of receptivity
Is paining the Supreme
Far beyond your imagination!


Although you may not value
The spiritual life,
Rest assured, there will be others on earth
Who will care for God
And who will sincerely try
To be His worthy instruments.


Spirituality is for the wise.
If you want to survive,
Do not show your stupidity-compassion
To those false seekers
Who are not aspiring.


You fool!
Why do you think
That your spirituality is stronger
Than the ignorance of the unaspiring world?


God will be responsible
For your inner life
Only if you listen to Him.


How can you expect the same
Affection and Concern from God
If you do not offer Him
The same aspiration and dedication
As your fellow seekers do?


Never feel
That because you have pleased God
Over the years
In various ways,
God will forgive you for the many ways
That you are not pleasing Him.


Bring to the fore
Your most difficult problem.
God is offering you
His wholehearted support
To conquer it.


My daily prayer to God:
I am helpless; save me!
I offer what I have
And what I am
For You to purify.


What I need
Is constant awareness
To fight not against others
But against my own unillumined self.


Humanity is failing you
Not deliberately,
But because of its limited capacities.


While walking along Eternity’s Road,
You will find at every moment
That there is only one Friend,
Inner and outer,
And that is your Beloved Supreme.


O Lord Supreme,
True, I can forget You,
But it is I who will be
The veritable loser.


Do not despair.
Your inner strength, joy, peace
And satisfaction
You will definitely be able
To bring to the fore again
By the infinite Grace of the Supreme.


With our own determination
And with Grace from Above
We will be able to succeed
Without fail
And to proceed
In an amazing way!


The outer runner wants speed
To reach his goal.
The inner runner also needs speed,
For inner speed determines
Our inner destination.


If you are deliberately receiving
Nothing from God,
Then you are only stabbing
God’s vaster-than-the-vastest


Humanity’s mind has turned God
Into an unnatural Being.
But God still maintains
His inner Poise.
That is why He still exists
On earth.


If you do not avail yourself
Of the opportunity before you,
I do not know when
You will be wise enough
To take any opportunity from Above.


You say that you are a hopeless case.
But do you not hear Someone deep inside
Telling you not to give up,
But to again get inspiration
To become good, better and best?


Whether God asks you to enter
Into the battlefield of life
And fight for Him
Or just to take rest,
You should be equally happy.


Only one feeling
Can make everybody happy:
“I am needed by God
In God’s own Way.”


Do not indulge in lethargy,
But do not forget the importance of rest.
With a new supply of energy
You will be able to work for God
With enthusiasm and eagerness.


Work soulfully and devotedly,
Without any pride,
Or at least feel that you are one
With those who do!


Are you a first-class God-lover?
If so, even when God does not appoint you,
Insecurity, jealousy and anxiety
Will not torture you.


The good things in your life
Gratefully offer to the Supreme,
And He will multiply them.
The bad things in your life
Devotedly offer to the Supreme,
And He will keep them for Himself.


O my mind,
For God’s sake
And for your own sake,
Stop carrying
Your utterly useless yesterdays!


When will my mind and heart
Stop dancing the desire-dance?


The mind’s unfounded
Fears and doubts
Are ruthlessly destroying
The seeker-heart’s
Courage and faith.


The aspiration-famine-mind
Always enjoys the thunder-roar
Of ignorance-night.


O Lord Supreme,
Do help me to free myself
From the taut shackles
Of useless regret.


God tells the Truth-seekers
And God-lovers,
“You alone are My sweet Dreams,
You alone are My pure Realities,
You alone are My Eternity’s All.”
