Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 186

Return to the table of contents

18501

My prayer-hands
Touch
God's Feet.

My meditation-eyes
Feel
God's Heart.

18502

God wants from us
Only gratitude-heart-tears
And not countless
Gratitude-gift-offerings.

18503

As attachment-intensity
Is so great,
Even so, we can make
Our detachment-speed
Very fast.

18504

Some people feel
That since God has created them,
God will do everything for them.
They have to do nothing.
Alas, they have arrived
At their self-delusion-pinnacles.

18505

Alas,
No matter how many times
Our expectations
Become frustrations,
We love to run
On the never-ending
Expectation-frustration-roads.

18506

If you are blinded
By ingratitude,
How can you see
God the Supreme Gardener
Inside your heart-garden?

18507

No, it is not true
That doubt-stains
Can never be removed
From the human mind.
Faith-power
Can and does remove
All doubt-stains.

18508

The constant expansion
Of a oneness-heart
Is the surest way
To cure insecurity-sickness.

18509

We must force our mind
To live inside
Our purity-heart.
Otherwise,
The mind will be stung
By ruthless impurity-bees.

18510

There is only one choice:
God-realisation
Has to be always
For God's sake.

18511

My mind
Does not want to liberate
Even the present generation.
It wants to liberate
Only itself.
My heart
Does not want to be liberated,
But it prays to God
For the liberation
Of present and future generations.

18512

Don't forget
To enter into your heart-room
And make it pure
And beautiful,
For God's Visit is imminent.

18513

Aspiration is something
God-given.
It can never be
Man-made.

18514

Never ask your mind
To imitate your heart.
It is bound to fail.
Ask your mind
To serve your heart.
It will divinely and supremely succeed.

18515

This world is made of
Endless and useless
Ingratitude-minds
And ingratitude-hearts.

18516

What is doubt,
If not the beginning
And continuation
Of the darkest night?

18517

The love-shore
Is beautiful.
The devotion-shore
Is powerful.
The surrender-shore
Is fruitful.

18518

You cannot
Change the world
With your mental thoughts.
You can
Not only change the world
But also alter destiny
If you invoke
Your inner cosmic energy
To come to the fore.

18519

Doubt
Has to be exploded.
Faith
Has to be explored.
Surrender
Has to be exported
To God's Heaven-Feet-Kingdom.

18520

God tells me
That my life is not
A mere mistake-cloud.
My life is the beginning
Of His own ever-illumining Dawn.

18521

Although you have had
Very few human incarnations,
You have no idea
How soon your divine life
May replace
Your semi-animal and semi-human life
If God's special Grace
Descends upon you.

18522

Climbing aspiration-flames
Look infinitely more beautiful
When they come from
The depths of a gratitude-heart
Than when they come from
A searching mind.

18523

Who says
That the spiritual life
Has to be static?
No, the spiritual life
Has to be
The constantly self-giving
Life of dynamism.

18524

Anything
That we want to offer God
To please Him in His own Way
Must be
A spontaneously effortless effort.

18525

Nothing can remain impure
Once it is placed
At the Compassion-Purification-Feet
Of the Lord Supreme.

18526

Do not keep
Your mind-door closed!
If you do,
Your inner darkness
Will overwhelm you.

18527

A gratitude-heart
Is itself an open door
For the Lord Supreme
To come in.

18528

Be a God-believer first,
Then be a God-seeker,
And then a God-lover.
Then automatically
You will become a God-finder.

18529

Consciousness
Has to be expanded
On the strength of
Aspiration heightened.

18530

One can never outgrow
One's aspiration-heart
And dedication-life.
One only grows and glows
Along with them.

18531

Either willingly or unwillingly
We must surrender to God's Will
If we want to be freed from
Non-stop anxieties and worries.

18532

If you are afraid
Of the new,
You will never
Be accepted and blessed
By the ever-new.

18533

If your soulful meditations
Do not solve
Your life's riddles,
That means you need
More intensity
In your soulfulness.

18534

Self-offering
Is not a secret crime
But a sacred smile.

18535

Alas,
How many times a seeker
Becomes disloyal
To God's Compassion-Eye
And Forgiveness-Heart!

18536

The transformation
Of the mind
Is not a matter
Of discussion,
But a matter
Of achievement.

18537

O seeker,
Choose a sincerity-smile
For your mind to play with,
Not an insincerity-frown.

18538

God loves me
Not because I am trying very hard
To please Him,
But because I still maintain hope
That there will come a time
When I shall be able to please Him
In His own Way.

18539

If your heart
Can prayerfully sing
Your God-surrender-songs,
Then you will be able
To breathe in freely
God's Presence-Fragrance.

18540

My poor mind,
I feel so sorry for you!
Your muscles are so weak and fragile!
Why do I use them
Beyond their capacity
And make my life miserable?

18541

God does not blame you
For your past mistakes.
He does not blame you
Even for your present mistakes.
But he will blame you without fail
If you are not determined
To live a mistake-free life
From now on.

18542

I was a friend
Of my unaspiring past.
Now I am a friend
Of my aspiring present.
I shall soon be a friend
Of my surrendering future.

18543

A mind of peace
Loves all.
A heart of peace
Awakens all.
A life of peace
Satisfies all.

18544

You are not supposed to measure
The height of your aspiration
And the depth of your dedication.
You are only supposed to pray and meditate.
It is God who is going to measure
Your aspiration-height
And dedication-depth.

18545

At times, success
May not be a difficult task,
But progress
Is always a difficult task.

18546

The tears of our hearts
Eventually grow into
The beauty and fragrance
Of our God-service-life.

18547

A life without
A self-giving experience
Is indeed
A totally wasted life.

18548

What I need is
A conscious God-awareness-mind.
What I need is
A constant God-oneness-heart.

18549

Beautiful are
Our aspiration-dreams.
Fruitful are
Our dedication-realities.

18550

God's happy News is
That He will never give up.
Man's sad news is
That he is still not ready.

18551

Do you know God's secret Name?
"Yes, I do.
As a matter of fact,
He has two secret Names:
Eternity's Hunger
And
Infinity's Feast."

18552

There was a time
When I had many goals.
Now I have only one goal:
My life's perfection-progress-goal.

18553

Be careful of hesitation,
For inside hesitation
Abides destruction-doubt.

18554

O my mind,
It is high time
For you to take
Some aspiration-heart-lessons.
If not, yours will be
A total failure-life.

18555

Drastic changes are required
If you want your heart to sing
A prayerful gratitude-song
Every day.

18556

What we need is determination.
How do we get it?
By trying to have
A God-willingness-blossoming life.

18557

It will not be enough
If you become a finalist
In the purity-sprints.
You also have to be
A ceaselessly self-giving
Hero-runner.

18558

God asks my gratitude-heart
To be a collector
Of temple-heart-surrender-songs.

18559

Frustrated, I say,
"Can't there be another God?"
Elated, I say,
"Can there ever be another me?"

18560

Use your heart
To love God more and more,
Infinitely more.
Your mind's God-fear-barrier
Will disappear.

18561

My Lord,
Out of His infinite Bounty,
Has made me a free member
Of His twenty-four-hour
Tolerance-Enterprise.

18562

Spirituality is neither
Obligation nor fascination.
Spirituality is
The seeker-heart's God-perfection-dream.

18563

My heart is
A born-again God-lover.
My life is
A born-again God-server.

18564

Not only the cosmic gods
But also the God Supreme
Will give you a standing ovation
If your life becomes
A ceaseless God-satisfaction-song.

18565

God's Heart
Wants me to wake up.
God's Eye
Wants me to stand up.
And God
Wants me to speak up.

18566

O God-seekers of the world,
Perhaps you do not know
That God depends on you
Infinitely more than you can imagine.

18567

O my unwillingness-mind,
I am sure that
Soon your fate will change
And you will long for
God's Compassion-descending Rain.

18568

It is only
When I leave my mind
Outside my heart-temple
That I am allowed to come in
To pray, meditate and serve.

18569

Obedience-oars:
This is what your mind needs.
Surrender-sails:
This is what your heart needs —
Nothing less and nothing more.

18570

Don't allow your mind
To be a self-doubt-ocean
If you want to live
Inside the heart of ecstasy-sea.

18571

Each man thinks
That he is
An indispensable human being.
I am so proud of God
That He does not
See eye to eye with us.

18572

O my mind,
Who are you to question God
And who are you to ignore God?
You and your own ignorance
Will strangle each other soon!

18573

Cure
Your inner despair-malady!
Lo, you have become the possessor
Of an outer hope-melody.

18574

May my heart's hope-rainbow
Shine bright
Above my mind-clouds.

18575

It seems that the human mind
Either unconsciously or consciously
Enjoys taking confusion-courses.

18576

My heart's gratitude-tears
Will give me a new name:
Purity-smile.

18577

What we need is a new hope.
It is inside our new hope only
That eagerness and enthusiasm
Will blossom.

18578

Aspiration-flames
Frighten
The desire-thief.

18579

If there is no confidence,
Then there can be no newness.
If there is no newness,
Then there can be no oneness.
If there is no oneness,
Then there can be no fulness.

18580

The radiance of the soul's beauty
Is determined to illumine
The unlit mind and vital.

18581

My heart's inner choice
And God's Satisfaction-Voice
Are fond of each other.

18582

O God-lover,
God wants you
To pay utmost attention
To developing
Your aspiring heart-muscle.

18583

Run a little harder.
You will definitely be able
To run past your mind's
Teeming doubts.

18584

You are definitely missing
The golden opportunity
To become a choice instrument
Of God
If you are enjoying the dictates
Of your doubting and dividing mind.

18585

My Lord Supreme,
Your Forgiveness-Heart
And Your Compassion-Eye,
My two long-cherished dreams,
Are now being fully manifested
Inside my heart-garden.

18586

When your Inner Pilot sings,
Be attentive
And do not make friends
With your unwillingness-lethargy.

18587

Be not afraid of running fast
In your spiritual life.
The spiritual life itself
Is God's Compassion-flooded
Fastest speed.

18588

O my mind,
Your lack of kindness
And concern
Is killing my fragrance-heart.

18589

Plunge devotedly,
Plunge sleeplessly,
Plunge self-givingly
Into the sea of enthusiasm-delight.

18590

Two things we must do:
We must strengthen
Our kindness
And lengthen
Our concern.

18591

My Lord,
Your very Presence
Is the height of my prayer-life
And the depth of my aspiration-heart.

18592

A new willingness-mind,
A new eagerness-heart,
A new surrender-life
Can and will satisfy God
In God's own Way.

18593

If you love your heart's
God-dreams,
Then your life can neither ignore
Nor ever forget
Your God-manifestation on earth.

18594

God's Eye is watching to see
How much you need Him.
God's Heart is watching to see
How much you love Him.

18595

The unaspiring mind
Is afraid of
God's Omnipotence-Eye.
The aspiring heart
Is afraid of
God's Omnipresence-Tears.

18596

My Lord, I came to You
With a lengthy list
Of my unfulfilled desires.
Do tell me when I shall come to You
With my short, very short,
Fulfilled aspiration.

18597

My life-joy will be multiplied
A million times
If and when my heart
Becomes a sea of God-gratitude.

18598

Every day
I ply my life-boat
Between my crying heart-shore
And my smiling eye-shore.

18599

God does not close
Our heart's confidence-road.
It is our doubting mind
That closes our heart's confidence-road.

18600

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
Already many times
I have broken Your Heart
With my false promises.
Do give me a new heart
This time to please You,
Only You,
In Your own Way.
