Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 203

Return to the table of contents

20201

Each hour
Is a God-Smile-Opportunity.
Each day
Is a man-transformation-opportunity.

20202

Ignorance
Is sleeplessly hungry
For aspiration-heart-destruction.

20203

God's Forgiveness-Smiles
And man's gratitude-tears
Have established
Their oneness-heart-world.

20204

The real God tells me
That His Compassion-Ocean
Is all for me.
The unreal God tells me
That His Justice-Light
Will always chase me.

20205

Human love
Is man's confusion-history.
Divine love
Is man's perfection-poetry.

20206

Eagerness
Is our soul's beauty
Expressed through
Our readiness-heart.

20207

A real seeker must always
Remain loyal and grateful
To both God's Compassion-Sky
And His Justice-Light.

20208

To say that I need wisdom-light
More than ignorance-night
Is not enough.
I must say that I need
Wisdom-light only โ€”
Nothing else!

20209

We can be fully aware
Of our heart's inner speed
Only when we are determined
To make God happy
In His own Way.

20210

If you start your journey
With love,
Then you are bound to see
Beautiful devotion-flowers
In your heart-garden
And to smell their soul-fragrance
As well.

20211

How can you proceed
In your inner life
If you do not have
An iota of devotion
In your aspiration-breath?

20212

My sweetest sweetness-heart
Helps me and guides me
While I am walking
Along the surrender-road.

20213

Anger, I do not want
To remember your name.
Pride, I do not want
To remember your name.
Humility, may you and I
Always enjoy each other's company.

20214

Truth may at times
Be a trouble-maker,
But love is always
A trouble-shooter.

20215

The age of nation-supremacy
Must end.
The age of nation-intimacy
Must begin.

20216

With earth-tears
I cry below.
With Heaven-smiles
I fly above.

20217

Two things I always need:
The silence of my mind
And the sound of my heart.

Two things I already have:
My love of God
And my surrender to God's Will.

20218

O my mind,
Have you ever realised
That your barking doubts
Are not only powerless
But also useless?

20219

If you do not
Take God more seriously,
Then God will not be able
To take you more compassionately.

20220

God the Justice,
If You cannot teach me,
Who can?
God the Compassion,
If You do not teach me,
Who will?

20221

Your heart-offering
Must be for all.
There is nobody
Who does not deserve it.

20222

Ignorance-night is stronger
Than we think.
Wisdom-light is stronger
Than we feel.

20223

It may be difficult for you
To choose between
Your aggressive vital
And your doubtful mind,
But how can it be difficult for me
To choose between
Your self-giving heart
And your unaspiring life?

20224

Whatever I receive
From my mind
Is not only too trivial
But also too complicated
To be worthwhile.

20225

Whether your mind is full
Of genuine doubts or not,
You must keep far away from
Your unaspiring mind.

20226

O my suspicion-treasuring mind,
Leave me alone,
Leave me at once
And leave me forever.

20227

Nothing is within my capacity
Either to accept or to reject.
But there is one thing
Within my capacity to express,
And that is the delight
Of my gratitude-heart.

20228

The power that builds
My heart-nest,
God gave me.
The power that builds
My mind-mansion,
I gave myself.

20229

If you are the possessor
Of a purity-heart,
Then even your genuine doubts
Are bound to diminish and disappear.

20230

My Lord,
When I pray to You soulfully
And meditate on You self-givingly,
I will undoubtedly be aware
Of Your Forgiveness-Light.

20231

Challenge
Your destiny's frown.
God will proudly bless you
With His most precious Crown.

20232

What can God's Grace
Do for us?
It can do in a minute
What would take a lifetime
Otherwise.

20233

The eagerness of the heart,
The oneness of the heart,
The fulness of the heart
Are three in one
And one in three.

20234

I am happy
When God speaks to me
About something new.
I am infinitely happier
When I place myself
At the Feet of my Lord Supreme
With a new and pure heart.

20235

The mind-landlord
Does not realise its stupidity.
It has chosen anxiety and worry
To be its tenants.

20236

For its survival,
An unaspiring mind
Thinks it has either
To detest, to contest
Or to protest
Everything.

20237

Short is the span
Of man's fame.
Long is the span
Of man's God-surrender-song.
Not only longest but also immortal
Is the span
Of man's God-surrender-life.

20238

What I want
From my mind and vital
Is a oneness-confirmation,
Not
A supremacy-confrontation.

20239

Either
We can be limitless
In our stupidity-night
Or
We can be priceless
In our wisdom-light.
God wants us to make the choice.

20240

When illumination
We are within,
Perfection
We become without.

20241

If we fortify
Our aspiration-breath,
God will magnify
Our glorification-life.

20242

When slowly, steadily and unerringly
The oneness-heart appears,
Unwillingly, reluctantly and miserably
The division-mind disappears.

20243

Each good thought
Increases the beauty and splendour
Of our life's God-affinity.

20244

O my mind,
You are so treacherous.
Yet I do not know how
I can disown you.

O my heart,
You are so precious.
Yet I do not know how
I can own you, reveal you
And manifest you.

20245

I am all ready
To place the skills
Of my mind
At the feet
Of my heart's
Tiniest rainbow-thrill.

20246

I really want to see
A man who has
Never been susceptible
To self-doubt.

20247

We can feed our aspiration-flames
Every day
To our heart's content
If we have already torn
Our doubting mind
To shreds.

20248

Determination
Is not enough.

Perseverance
Is not enough.

Every good quality
That we have
Is not enough.

Only one thing
Is enough,
More than enough:
God's blessingful Compassion-Smile.

20249

Most special
Is a God-awareness-mind.
Most perfect
Is a God-oneness-heart.

20250

O my mind,
How can you succeed
In anything
If you remain surrendered
To your determination-drought-existence?

20251

He who wants
All his expectations
To be fulfilled
Can never become
God's gold medallist.

20252

Practise patience.
You will definitely arrive
At your all-illumining
And all-fulfilling goal.

20253

Threaten idle thoughts.
Chase idle thoughts.
Strangle idle thoughts.
Happiness and satisfaction
Will immediately befriend you.

20254

Whenever and wherever
You look at human beings โ€”
Even truth-seekers
And God-lovers,
Not to speak of ordinary
Human beings โ€”
There is always a complete
God-surrender-shortage.

20255

Imperfection pervades your life
Just because you have allowed
Self-doubt and God-doubt
To invade your mind.

20256

Cling to God's Compassion.
You will be able
To unburden yourself of
Failure-frustration-loads.

20257

Do not abhor ignorance.
Do not ignore ignorance.
Challenge ignorance!
Conquer ignorance
Once and for all!
This is the absolutely
Right way
To make yourself perfect
And happy.

20258

Every day
The aspiring heart
Plants peace-seeds
Inside the doubting mind.
Alas,
They never germinate.

20259

I am so fortunate
And so happy
That I have two
Supremely precious teachers:
My devotion-heart
And my illumination-soul.

20260

Infinite joy I feel
When I see my readiness-mind
Surrender
To my willingness-heart,
My willingness-heart
Surrender
To my eagerness-soul
And my eagerness-soul
Surrender
To my Fulness-God.

20261

O my doubting mind,
Why do you come back
Again and again
To haunt me
And take away
My faith-oneness-joy
From my heart?

20262

O my Lord Supreme,
Do always keep my mind
Under arrest,
So that it does not dare
To protest
Against my aspiring heart
And my serving life.

20263

God has no room
Inside His Heart for you
Only when you keep
Impurity
Inside your mind-room
And insecurity
Inside your heart-room.

20264

Your tearful prayers
And cheerful meditations
Are your best investment
If you want to eventually become
Rich, richer, richest
In the world of aspiration.

20265

Receptivity-immensity
Can easily disentangle
The thickly entangled
Mind-jungle.

20266

If you do not have
Even an iota of faith
In God,
How can you expect
God's Forgiveness-Miracle?

20267

Determination
Straightens, enlightens
And even shortens
The God-realisation-road.

20268

A God-thinker may at times
Be puzzled
By God's infinite Vastness,
But a God-lover is always
Happy and fulfilled
In God's infinite Sweetness.

20269

The human in us
Is always tired.
It desires to shorten
The cut-off time
In the race.

The divine in us
Does not want
And does not need
A cut-off time,
For it loves Eternity's
Divine Adventure-Road.

20270

The thought of God
Embodies
Sweetness.
The search for God
Reveals
Oneness.

20271

Eagerness and newness
Powerfully shake hands
With the God-searching seeker.

20272

The God-searching seeker's
God-approach
Is embraced by God's
Infinite Dreams and
Immortal Realities.

20273

My Lord,
Although my misdeeds are many,
I strongly feel
That Your Forgiveness-Light
Will illumine my jungle-mind
And rescue my life from drowning
In the sea of ignorance.

20274

Unlike us,
God does not believe in
Answering machines.
He is always available.
Not only that,
He is always at our disposal.

20275

Self-pity does not
Console one's mind.
Self-pity cannot
Strengthen one's heart.
Self-pity only makes one
A real stranger to oneself.

20276

Do not cherish only one dream.
Move from one dream to another.
Who knows which dream
Is going to be transformed
Into reality?

20277

Not fear of God
But love of God
Can and will change
Our ignorance-prone life.

20278

The profession of a spiritual Master
Is not an easy one.
O seekers and God-lovers,
If you do not believe me,
Just try playing the role
Of the Master.

20279

If you do not develop genuine concern,
Sympathy and compassion,
Who knows?
One day you may sink to the level
Of the dark demons.

20280

Gratitude
Is the best hunter
In the seeker's
Wild forest-mind.

20281

The soul whispers
Oneness-perfection-messages.
Not only the vital and the mind,
But also the heart,
At times disregard the soul's
Loftiest messages.

20282

What I need
Is a thought-chasing mind.
What I need
Is a thought-silencing heart.
What I need
Is a thought-transforming soul.

20283

Each human being
Is a new hope-boat
Of God
And a new promise-shore
Of God.

20284

I know,
Because of my God-disobedience,
My heart has become my life's
Hell-descending staircase.

20285

No God-searching mind
Can ever be comfortable
With confusion and hesitation.

20286

My heart's streaming tears
Have supplied me with
A God-locating compass.

20287

If you are clearly
A dissatisfied doubt-customer,
Then God will give you the capacity
To be His daily faith-customer.

20288

If you want to be armed
Against disappointment,
Then do not miss
Your God-appointment-hour
Even for a single day.

20289

Every whisper of compassion
And every whisper of gratitude
Can and will inspire us
To run the fastest
In our own aspiration-race.

20290

Although I stumble,
I shall not fail.
Even though I fail,
I shall not give up,
Never!

20291

O seeker,
If you truly love God,
Then do not swim in the sea
Of world-compromise.

20292

I want to go far beyond
The domain of humanity's
Heart-praise and mind-scorn.
I want to remain always
In the heart of the Beyond
And in the life of the Beyond.

20293

O seeker,
Each time you disobey
Your Inner Pilot,
You just stand helpless
On disaster-border.

20294

If you want success
In your outer life
And progress
In your inner life,
Then you must not slumber
Through opportunity-days,
Opportunity-months
And opportunity-years.

20295

You do not have to implore God
To reconsider your case.
Just shed streaming tears
Of remorse.
God will definitely illumine
Your past, present and future.

20296

May my early morning songs be
All inspiration-mind,
Aspiration-heart
And dedication-life-songs.

20297

Is there any day
That I do not ask my mind
To leave me alone?
Alas,
My mind never listens to me!

20298

God is never proud
Of my mind's giant plans,
But He is always proud
Of my heart's rainbow-dreams.

20299

The transformation
Of human nature
Is infinitely more difficult
Than the human mind
Can ever imagine.

20300

If you can synchronise
Your heartbeat with God's,
Your life-pendulum will swing
Between
Eternity's Peace
And Infinity's Bliss.
