Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 187

Return to the table of contents

18601

The devotion-magnet
Pulls the Lord Beloved Supreme
Closer than the closest
Sooner than the soonest.

18602

Only the upward-climbing
Experience-joy
Satisfies
God's Compassion-descending Heart.

18603

Willingness itself is the capacity
Hidden in us
For God's outer manifestation.

18604

You have played for a long time
With your harmful ignorance-friend.
Now is the time to part with him
Wisely and proudly.

18605

The cry for God-satisfaction
In God's own Way
Has to be a living reality in us
Long before God allows us
To place ourselves at His Feet.

18606

Only the ever-increasing
Silence of the soul
Can calm down
The mind-turbulence.

18607

O my mind,
You have given me
An unhealthy experience.
Life's simplicity-light
You have turned into
Complexity-night.

18608

If you do not leave
Your mind's thought-jungle
Behind you,
You will not be able to arrive
At your heart's rose-garden-gate.

18609

Forgiveness quite often saves
The God-lover
From his self-destruction-anger-fire.

18610

The stupidity of the mind
Does not know,
And perhaps does not want to know,
That ignorance-night
Is a dangerous intruder.

18611

If you have a rainbow-heart,
You do not have to go to God.
God Himself will come to you,
To feed you
Far beyond your own expectation.

18612

O my heart's purity-stars,
Without you,
Whatever I eat, whenever I eat,
Alas,
Becomes ignorance-feast.

18613

My oneness-heart
Is nothing other than
My Lord's
Compassion-Expansion-Smile.

18614

When the heart-doctor
Carries the faith-medicine
To the mind-patient,
Even if the doubt-mind
Takes the medicine unwillingly,
It is bound to be cured.

18615

The simplicity of life
We were.
The sincerity of the mind
We were.
The purity of the heart
We were.
The divinity of our prayers
We were.
Alas, we do not know
Whether we have deserted them
Or they have deserted us.

18616

Without my heart's hope
I cannot proceed.
But without my mind's expectation
I can easily proceed,
And I must,
For expectation and frustration
Are immediate neighbours.

18617

My morning prayer
Cries for God's Compassion.
My evening prayer
Longs for God's Satisfaction.

18618

When I bow my head
In humble prayer,
My Lord Supreme makes me
Taller than the tallest
And helps me shine
Inside His own Heart-Garden.

18619

Dynamism-plants
Will never befriend us
If we do not cheerfully
And bravely
Uproot our lethargy-trees.

18620

Alas, is there any desire-man
Who can ever avoid
Being a puppet
In the hands of inexorable fate?

18621

In our aspiration-heart's
Dedication-nest,
No stranger
There can ever be.

18622

The life of a saint
Is indeed
The Heart-Fragrance
Of God Himself.

18623

I do not care for
My mind's determination-success.
All I need is
My heart's aspiration-progress.

18624

Alas, alas, when I pray
The outer world remains aloof.
When I meditate
The inner world remains blind.

18625

Only the unaspiring mind
Can enjoy the recital
Of worthless and useless thoughts.

18626

I fully agree with those
Who say that the curious mind
Is not the proper place
For prayer.

18627

When my mind surrenders
To my heart's fragrance-delight,
I enjoy Divinity's Delight.

18628

My Lord Supreme,
Do give me the capacity
To keep my heart-room
Always available
For You, only for You.

18629

The mind
And its hesitation
Together are destroying
The heart
And its aspiration.

18630

I do not want to know
How real my Lord is.
I just want to know
How real my love of my Lord is.

18631

Two songs every day I sing
To my Lord Supreme:
My mind's obedience-song
And
My heart's surrender-song.

18632

It seems that
The mind's expectations
And
The life's futilities
Are inseparable.

18633

Meditation is fruitful
Only when
The mind becomes a reservoir
Of stillness-patience-bliss.

18634

To say that spirituality
Is mental poverty
Is absurdity.
Spirituality is mental receptivity.
Spirituality is the joy of awareness
And the love of self-giving.

18635

Do not postpone
Your self-improvement-task.
Your soul wants you
To make good time
And go beyond
The limits of time.

18636

A true self-giver
Knows not what
A God-fulfilment-
Opportunity-shortage is.

18637

God does not want me to have
Any aspiration-substitute
Since He does not want to have
Any Satisfaction-substitute.

18638

I have employed
My aspiration-heart-guard
To catch
My doubt-mind-thief.

18639

I can afford to experience
The rise and fall of my mind-kingdom,
But I can never, never afford to experience
The rise and fall of my heart-kingdom.

18640

How can the human mind
Solve the doubt-problems
Since the mind itself
Cherishes doubts?

18641

Attention-craving people
Cannot dive deep within
To see the reality
Of their own infinite capacities.

18642

The divine security
Is not meant for
The unaspiring
And uncommitted heart.

18643

A heart of gratitude
Finds divine Blessings
And divine Love
All along its way.

18644

The very breath of faith
Is not only
Divinely powerful
But also
Supremely fruitful.

18645

What comes to me
Unmistakably
Is what I carefully
Or carelessly
Invite.

18646

My heart's obedience-joy
Is the shortest way
To my God-realisation.

18647

It is not the curious eyes
But the aspiring heart
That remains before God.

18648

My imagination-beauty
Inspires my outer life.
My aspiration-fragrance
Guides my inner life.

18649

I love God,
But I love infinitely more
To cling to God's Feet.

18650

O my mind, I beg of you,
Move forward and fly upward!
Do not just roam
In the graveyards of the past.

18651

There was a time when I felt
My soul-delight-shortage,
And now I am feeling
My heart-love-shortage,
Alas, alas!

18652

A purity-heart
Has the rare capacity
To remove
The mind's darkness-clouds.

18653

We reach the zenith of stupidity
When we think and feel
That God's Compassion-Light
Is only for somebody else.

18654

It is never too late
To love God,
To please God
And to fulfil God
In His own Way.

18655

The purity of the heart
And the humility of the life
Must go together
For God to be supremely proud of
His seeker-child.

18656

Be not proud of
Your mind-thought-jungle.
Be proud of
Your heart-fountain-garden.

18657

There shall come a time
When each and every human being
Will be flooded with the soul-courage
To silence the pride of ignorance-night.

18658

May my morning prayer-life
And my evening meditation-heart
Grow into waves
Of sweetness-peace.

18659

An unaspiring mind
Does enjoy
Walking along the path
Of pessimism-night.

18660

When we meditate
Inside the very depths
Of our heart,
We see a cosmos of satisfaction
And not a world of despair.

18661

At long last
My mind's doubt-life is over!
The selfishness of my mind
Has been replaced
By the selflessness of my heart.

18662

I can move my life
In God's direction
Only when I am not trying
To please God out of fear.

18663

Each desire-satisfaction
Becomes my heart's
Aspiration-starvation.

18664

God's good news is:
He has not given up on me.
My good news is:
I am determined
To please God in His own Way.

18665

Do you know
What God's secret Name is?
His Justice-Light-Surrender
To His Compassion-Height.

18666

The unaspiring mind says to God:
Give me freedom!
The aspiring heart says to God:
God, I wish to be imprisoned
In Your Love-Embrace!

18667

There can be various service-roads
To approach God
But there is only one aspiration-road
To realise God.

18668

The increase
Of my heart's faith
Is my life's capacity
Expanded.

18669

I no longer want to remain the owner
Of my unrealised possibilities.
From now on I want to be the owner
Of my manifested capacities.

18670

Hesitation and doubt
Are oneness-friends
Who indefinitely delay
The seeker's progress-march.

18671

If you pay no attention
To your nature's perfection,
Then God's complete Satisfaction in you
Will always remain a far cry.

18672

God writes to you every day
Using your heart's
Surrender-address
And not your mind's
Hesitation-address.

18673

God does not want our hearts
To be sent to Him.
He wants our hearts
To be hand-delivered to Him.

18674

There is never a cease-fire
Between the arrogance of the vital
And the frustration of the mind.

18675

When a seeker-heart suffers,
It cries aloud,
"O God's Compassion-Height,
Where are you?
O God's Justice-Light,
Where are you not?"

18676

Finally,
My self-doubt and I
Are walking
Along two different roads.

18677

Your faith must not be
A fleeting experience.
Your faith must be
A lasting and abiding realisation.

18678

God's Heart
Treasures our hearts
Only when we do not carry
Our insecurities to Him.

18679

Alas, each human being
Is the driver
Of a very long
Dissatisfaction-train.

18680

If your life is empty
Of enthusiasm and eagerness,
Then one day
You are bound to sink
In the sea of your self-doubt.

18681

My life's two
Sleepless and breathless
Requirements:
God's Compassion-Eye
And God's Forgiveness-Heart.

18682

My inner world
Is made of
My heart's hope.
My outer world
Is made of
My mind's frustration.

18683

There is something missing
Inside my heart.
What is it?
My Lord's kind Approval
Of my life's activities.

18684

God-seekers,
Awake!
God-lovers,
Arise!
God-servers,
Begin!

18685

If we constantly surrender
To wrong forces,
Then how can we dare to say
That we are helping the world
To become perfect?

18686

My Lord Supreme,
My soul prays to You:
May my five senses
Be totally illumined
So that I can be
A constant, dedicated,
Surrendered servitor to You.

18687

The Master's proud faith
In the disciple
And the disciple's unconditional faith
In the Master
Will be able to inundate
The aspiring world
With peace-joy infinite.

18688

Spirituality is a matter of belief.
You believe that your Master
Has realised God,
And your Master believes
One hundred per cent
That He will be able to make you realise
The Supreme, Absolute, Transcendental,
Beloved Father Supreme.

18689

Before we accepted the spiritual life,
Our mind was the boss of our life.
Since the mind could not satisfy us,
We accepted the spiritual life
And got a new boss: the heart.

18690

May my mind be
The beauty of obedience
And my heart,
The fragrance of surrender.

18691

If you want to be happy
Divinely and supremely,
Then you must obey your soul,
The God-representative
Here on earth for you.

18692

You are a fool
If you think
That your surrender to God's Will
Can be your last resort.

18693

Spirituality is an obligation
To the unaspiring mind
And a real satisfaction
To the aspiring heart.

18694

Every day, the mind visits
The hope-pole
And the despair-pole.
Every day the heart visits
The aspiration-pole
And the satisfaction-pole.

18695

Compromise is not
And cannot be
The answer.
Self-illumination
And truth-manifestation
Are the real answers.

18696

Do not carry
Your mind-bundle with you
When you enter into your heart-temple
To meditate and illumine yourself.

18697

True God-lovers
Are definitely made of
Indomitable heart-power.

18698

As we can remove the clouds
From our mind,
Even so,
We can keep the illumining sun
Inside our heart forever.

18699

Each time I aspire,
I feel that my mind is searching
For a new life
And my heart is longing
For God-arrival.

18700

My Lord,
I want my mind
To be a born-again believer,
My heart
To be a born-again lover
And my life
To be a born-again server.
