Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 211

Return to the table of contents

21001

Ignorance is defeating
World-aspiration,
But eventually world-aspiration
Will win the race.

21002

God has countless Heart-Doors.
A seeker always takes
His Compassion-Heart-Door.

21003

God has given us life
To enjoy divinely
And not to destroy ruthlessly.

21004

The mind's illusion-thief
Will not be able
To escape and hide forever.

21005

O seeker, your blind pride
Has made you a perfect stranger
To God's Compassion.

21006

A purity-heart has the capacity
To fly at the speed
Of a sweet dream.

21007

Do you know why
You are suffering so much?
You are suffering so much
Because you have failed
To guard the door of your mind.

21008

You are beautiful, more beautiful,
Most beautiful
Only when you join your soul
In dancing
In God's Heart-Garden.

21009

If your life is dominated
By doubt,
Then faith is helpless
To change the course
Of your life.

21010

When disobedience shakes hands
With your life
And embraces your heart,
We see the express arrival
Of total doom.

21011

Cheerful sincerity
Has to dawn
In your inner life
If you really want
To succeed and proceed
In your aspiration-cry
And dedication-smile.

21012

Every morning pray to God
To help you discover
The God-dreamer-child
In your heart-flower.

21013

The self-indulgence
Of ingratitude
Has covered the length and breadth
Of the world.

21014

Be aware of disobedience-torture.
Then only you will be able
To obey God and fulfil God
In His own Way.

21015

The remedy for all earth-ailments
Is a conscious, constant
Heart-cry.

21016

There cannot be anything
As uninspiring and unaspiring
As conscious self-deception.

21017

My life is so sweetly,
Blessingfully and compassionately
Touched by the Compassion-Eye
Of my Lord Beloved Supreme.

21018

The dreamer in you
Will remain awake
Only when it hears
The melodious songs
Of God-lovers on earth.

21019

God most compassionately waits
For each and every
Triumphant ascent
Of the genuine seeker.

21020

Your life-plant
And your heart-rose
Are chosen by God Himself.

21021

Do not cast your suspicion-net.
You will be ruthlessly ridiculed
By the entire world.

21022

Alas,
God is struggling
And suffering so much
To keep my stupid mind happy!

21023

Heaven sings in my heart.
God Himself sings in my heart.
But alas, where is my ear?
Where is my vision?

21024

My soul will never accept
Permanent defeat.
It will surcharge
My searching mind
And my aspiring heart
With its infinite light and delight.

21025

O my life-tree,
I want the whole world to enjoy
Your strongest branches
And not your tiniest twigs.

21026

The soul's only tragedy
Is the seeker's
Failure-life.

21027

Until you are willing
To accept God
In God's own Way,
You can never be truly happy.

21028

I know my prayers will never
Change God's Mind,
But God's Mind can and will
Change my prayers.

21029

Is there any human being
Who does not keep God waiting
Indefinitely?

21030

The difference between
The Creator and the creation is this:
The creation is a universal cry;
The Creator is a transcendental Smile.

21031

Prompted by our utter stupidity,
We always think of giving God
A surprise.
But do we not know
That God Himself
Is the only Surprise?

21032

Disobedience is lustreless.
Disobedience is soulless.
Disobedience eventually becomes
Hopelessly helpless.

21033

Disobedience has to be
Kept under control
If we hope to live
A self-disciplined life.

21034

Unseen and unappreciated,
God's Silence-Fulfilment-Tree
Spreads everywhere.

21035

God does not believe
In staying alone.
He always enjoys the company
Of self-giving souls.

21036

May the beauty of our prayer
And fragrance of our meditation
Increase with our daily
Blossoming faith-strength.

21037

Patience in the presence
Of teeming obstacles
Is the only way
To surprisingly succeed in life.

21038

When truth and falsehood
Quarrel and fight,
Falsehood always loses.

21039

If you are supremely strong
In your inner life,
It is advisable to know the worst,
So that you can prepare yourself
For the best.

21040

Twice I am totally puzzled:
Once when I see the weakness
Of humanity
And once when I see the greatness
Of humanity.

21041

God secretly tells me
That nothing can ever be useless
In His creation-vision-world.
"Uselessness" is not to be found
In God's Heart-Dictionary.

21042

I cannot understand
How you can be
Helplessly and willingly blind
While walking along
God-realisation-road.

21043

I always long to study
In the school
Of truth-sublimity
And God-necessity.

21044

As long as we believe others
To be equally sincere, good
And promising,
We shall not suffer from
The weakness of division-night.

21045

Supreme,
You have shown me Your golden Boat.
You have shown me Your golden Face.
Please tell me when
You will show me Your golden Feet.

21046

Your slow attempt
At self-improvement
Is compelling your soul
To shed bitter tears.

21047

From God's point of view,
You are not consciously, self-givingly,
Sleeplessly and breathlessly
Trying to be another God.

21048

God tells me that
The only indispensable thing
In life I need
Is an unconditionally surrendered
Heart-smile.

21049

Each spiritual Master
Has his inner reasons
Why he deals with each individual
In a totally different way.

21050

O seeker,
Do you know what you have become?
You have become a slave
To your demands,
And God has become a slave
To His own Forgiveness.

21051

Whenever I dream of God's Love,
I become
A rising God-hunger-wave.

21052

Whether you want to or not,
There shall come a time
When you will be bound to observe
The ultimate demise
Of your doubting mind.

21053

Disobedience is nothing other than
A paralytic stroke
In the spiritual life.

21054

A God-blessed aspiration-runner
Will not be a victim
To doubt-injuries.

21055

On the aspiration-road
Always follow
Devotion-fragrance-signs.

21056

Division-trees will without fail
Be uprooted from the God-Garden
By God Himself.

21057

Your once-a-day
Prayer-meditation session
Can never be enough
To expedite
Your Heavenward journey.

21058

Always be on the alert!
Your heart's aspiration-treasure
Can be stolen
By your mind's desire-thief.

21059

Whatever opposes God's Will
Will eventually surrender,
For God's Will is Infinity's
Omnipotence.

21060

If you want to surprise God,
Then obey Him all the time
And not just when
It suits your purpose.

21061

If you do not want
To serve God,
How do you expect God
To feed you?

21062

Do not be so stupid!
It is you who are rejecting
Deliberately
God the Compassion
And God the Illumination.

21063

I am absolutely sure
That before long,
Mine will be
A God-pleasing life.

21064

To silence the forces
Of ignorance-titan,
I shall dare to love God
Devotedly and unconditionally.

21065

If you want to win God's Heart,
Love God spontaneously
And serve God willingly.

21066

You have not lost anything —
On the contrary,
You have got everything —
By losing your desire-life.

21067

Compassion-Light has not succeeded,
But I am sure Justice-Light
Will without fail succeed!

21068

My Lord,
Just end the era of Your Compassion!
What I need is Your Justice
To turn me into
A good citizen of the world.

21069

Alas, I do not know how
I shall ever find my way back
To my Lord's Favour
If I continue hurting
His Compassion-Heart.

21070

My Lord,
I have not come into the world
To hide my mind's faults.
I have come into the world
To expose my mind's faults
And reveal my heart's
God-satisfaction-willingness
And eagerness.

21071

You can close your eyes
To reality's body,
But you can never close your eyes
To reality's heart.

21072

Wherever he,
Along with his aspiration-cries,
Goes,
Heaven and Heaven's Satisfaction-Smile
Follow.

21073

I want to remain owned always
By my Lord's Compassion-Eye
And His Forgiveness-Heart.

21074

To serve God is not only
To please God and to fulfil God,
But eventually to become God.

21075

Disobedience-road leads us
Nowhere.
Obedience-road shows us
The satisfaction-goal
Everywhere.

21076

O obedience,
You have made my eyes beautiful,
You have made my heart pure,
You have made my breath self-giving,
You have made my mind clear.

21077

As the world will manage nicely
Without me,
Even so, I shall manage my life wisely
Without the world.

21078

My gratitude is worthless
If there is no abiding God-faith
In my gratitude.
My surrender is useless
If there is no abiding God-faith
In my surrender.

21079

You do not have to fly
To the blue-vast sky.
The blue-vast sky will enter into you
If you turn your mind into a silence-home.

21080

My Lord, I implore You
Not to make me happy
In my own way,
But to make me perfect
In Your own Way.

21081

O seeker, if you do not want
To believe in your crying heart,
At least believe in
Your illumining soul.

21082

The living breath
Of my real existence
Is my Lord's Compassion-Rain.

21083

I came into the world
To make my Lord Supreme happy.
Alas, what am I doing?
I am desperately trying
To make myself happy!

21084

People become infinitely more jealous
When you climb up
The ladder of success
Than when you climb up
The ladder of progress.

21085

My simple but urgent
Request to God
Is not to fulfil
Any desire of mine
Whatsoever!

21086

The only indispensable thing
In my life
Is my ceaseless attempt at
Perfection.

21087

Since you cannot fathom
Your Master's heart,
It is good for you to remain silent
And not to ask him the reason
He does things in an unusual way.

21088

Who can prevent you from thinking
The right thing,
If not your mind?
Who can prevent you from doing
The wrong thing,
If not your heart?

21089

You should not delay
When the gates of the aspiration-world
Beckon you!

21090

When self-transcendence becomes
Your conscious choice,
The door of delight
Will welcome you.

21091

Who is a favourite instrument of God?
He who is totally
And sleeplessly satisfied
With God's divine Operation
In and through him.

21092

Who is a favourite instrument of God?
He who claims God sleeplessly
As his own,
No matter what he does
Or who he is.

21093

If you walk along
The desert-road of self-doubt,
How can you ever dare
To be really happy?

21094

You only want the money-god
To please you.
Since the Heart-God you do not want,
How can you expect anything
From the Heart-God?

21095

Who knows what God's Plan is?
He may use failure
To awaken your heart more fully.

21096

When I pray to God,
His Presence I feel in my heart.
When I meditate on God,
He participates with me
In all my activities.

21097

Just because the soul does not want
To tell you everything
For its own special reason,
Do not think that the soul
Does not know everything!

21098

The joy of silence
Is the joy we get
From our breathless self-offering.

21099

Nothing disturbs God,
But if I can do the thing
That will gladden God's Heart,
Then why do I have to do the thing
That saddens God?

21100

Mine is a hallowed heart-temple.
Here I sing,
Here I pray,
Here I meditate,
And here in silence I converse
With my Lord Beloved Supreme.
