Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 219

Return to the table of contents

21801

If you are born
In the sea of hope,
You can fly
In the sky of promise.

21802

How sweet is the breath
Of the flower.
How illumining is the sacrifice
Of the fragrance.

21803

When we live
In the doubting mind,
Our vision cannot go beyond
Vast stretches of nothingness.

21804

Alas, I do not know
How I can be of any service
To my suffering heart
And sacrificing soul.

21805

I really do not want
To sleep any more
In my dark and impure
Mind-cave.

21806

I equally enjoy
Both the thundering
Of my mind-seas
And the lightning
Of my heart-sky.

21807

Just increase
Your heart's faith in God.
You will be able to say farewell
To your mind's deception.

21808

To please God,
Our God-willingness-smile
Has to be both effortless
And breathless.

21809

God tells me
That my flower-pure surrender
Has pleased Him
Far beyond what I can ever imagine.

21810

My Lord,
The blessingful touch
Of Your Smile
Has given my heart
A new hope
And my life
A new promise.

21811

You can bury
Anything you want to
To give you joy,
But do not bury
Your hope-treasures,
For in your hope-treasures
You become tomorrow's God.

21812

Alas,
Perfection has no entry visa
To this world of chaos.

21813

O my soul, stop hiding!
It is high time
For you to come to the fore
To illumine once and for all
The world around you.

21814

My Lord Supreme
Does not want me to have
An intermission
In my God-aspiration, God-dedication
And God-manifestation-play.

21815

God is always available,
But alas,
Will you ever have time
To visit Him?

21816

God's Himalayan Compassion-Heights
Will one day, without fail,
Illumine
My darkness-flooded mind.

21817

My mind,
God has been so eagerly waiting
To hear from you.
Where have you been all along?

21818

Human love
Is a meaningless story
From the beginning to the end.
Divine love
Is a sweet poem
With a divine beginning
And an ever-transcending end.

21819

One of the finest
And rarest qualities
Of a human being
Is his spontaneous faith
In his own higher self.

21820

God does not want you
To tell Him all about
Your darkness of the past.
He wants you to sing
Tomorrow's light-songs
In today's aspiring hearts.

21821

I am progressing
Fast, faster, fastest,
Only because I pray and sing
Inside the God-obedience-temple.

21822

No honest God-service
Will ever cause a deplorable loss
In the life of a seeker.

21823

Each Forgiveness-Act of God's
Sends a thrill of joy and pride
Through all God-lovers.

21824

Our soul has the capacity
To prove itself flawless
In all its activities,
But it is under no obligation
To do so.

21825

When our surrender is complete,
We will be able to breathe
In and out
God's Golden Breath.

21826

Try to keep away from
The atmosphere of expectation.
Every moment of yours
Will be meaningful and fruitful.

21827

When we have peace of mind
We diminish the power
Of destruction-danger.

21828

The religion of the mind
Loves complexity
More than anything else.

21829

O seeker, be careful.
As your present life
Is failing God,
Your future life
Can also do the same.
Therefore, right from here and now,
Try to be careful!

21830

O God-obedience-heart of man,
Do spread your satisfaction-wings
All-where.

21831

The mind's nightmare of nonsense
Can come to an end
Only when God the Beloved becomes
Our sleepless and breathless Coach.

21832

Never trust lethargy.
It always tells us:
Just a few more moments.
Alas, those few more moments
Have an everlasting life.

21833

My mind-book
Nobody wants to read.
I do not blame them,
For I know how worthless
And useless
My mind-book is.

21834

It is instantly and universally believed
That God the Peace
Is infinitely more important
Than God the Power.

21835

For the evolution of mankind
If God does not contradict Himself
At times,
Then who can and who will?

21836

My faith in God
Receives nourishment directly,
Not from anybody else,
But from God Himself.

21837

O my vital,
I do not like competition.
O my mind,
I do not like comparison.
O my heart,
I love your way —
The way of oneness-joy.

21838

If you doubt
Your own love of God,
Then you will remain
Spiritually homeless
All the time.

21839

My disobedience does not have
A heart.
My disobedience does not have
Even a mind.
My disobedience has only
A ruthless and useless
Vital.

21840

May every second of my aspiration
Hold a place of special importance
In my own God-loving inner life.

21841

What I need is
A gigantic courage
To avoid all stumbles
In my aspiration-life.

21842

When the soul-bird flies off,
Its happiness adorns
The beauty of Heaven.

21843

My hope is fed
By my faith in God.
My faith is fed
By God's Compassion.

21844

If you have genuine aspiration,
Rest assured,
It will never be tired
Of climbing
To high, higher, highest heights.

21845

O my ignorance-life,
You have been living with me
For such a long time.
Now do let me live alone
To enjoy the happiness
Of freedom from you.

21846

Right from the beginning
Of my God-studies
I clearly felt
That I would be able
To fulfil and please God
In His own Way.

21847

He who fails to fathom
The significance of God-obedience
Will never be truly happy.

21848

O my mind,
I do not want you to be
My advocate.
I do not want you to be
The defender
Of my million excuses
Why I do not and cannot
Please God in His own Way.

21849

Alas, will I ever be able
To liberate myself
From the old familiar faces
Of fear and doubt?

21850

O constantly complaining mind,
You will never have the capacity
To knock
At God's Illumination-Door!

21851

Each time my meditation is deep,
God blesses me
With a full harvest
Of God-manifestation-opportunities.

21852

My soul's minimum requirement
From me
Is a prayerful heart,
And its maximum requirement
Is a twenty-four-hour heart-cry
For God.

21853

What I really love about God is this:
He not only loves me
But also claims me,
Even with my ever-increasing blunders.

21854

The moment I lose faith in God
I ruthlessly hurl myself
To my own destruction.

21855

Experience
Is my aspiring life's
Very just, yet kind
Banker.

21856

If you do not have
Peace of mind,
Then the agonies of your heart
You cannot avoid.

21857

My God-loving day begins
With my soul's brightest smile
And my heart's deepest cry.

21858

Never stop loving your life,
But love your life
The way God wants you to love it.
God Himself loves your life
In order to teach,
And not to examine.

21859

When I use my aspiring heart,
I better my life.
When I use my doubting mind,
I fetter my life.

21860

O my doubtful experience-life,
I do not want
To waste my time any more
With you,
For my soul's God-realisation
Is beckoning me.

21861

When I see myself
Through my own eyes,
I see and feel
That my life is not an inch better
Than the life of a beast.

When I see myself
Through God's Eye,
I see and feel
That I am on the fair road
To Godhood.

21862

When I belong to my heart's cry,
I see God right in front of me.
When I belong to God's Smile,
I feel my inseparable oneness
With my Lord Beloved Supreme.

21863

God tells me
Not to be disappointed
When I see I must lower myself
In order to rise high, higher, highest.

21864

The farthest reach
Of my inner faith
Is not my God-realisation
Or God-revelation,
But my God-manifestation.

21865

O ignorance-night,
Are you not ashamed
Of harassing me and my life
Constantly?

21866

Do not squander time,
For time is the breath
Of your prayer-mind
And aspiration-heart.

21867

God is always ready
With His Praise for you.
When will you be ready
With your divine receptivity?

21868

Love, devotion, surrender:
These three words
Are absolutely foreign
To a doubting mind
And strangling vital.

21869

When we are constant
In our humility,
God's Divinity
On its own
Comes down and befriends us.

21870

My very desire
To make progress
Is the first step
Of my progress.

21871

Since somebody has to have
The last word,
I have decided my soul
Should perform that task
In my life.

21872

Let us restore
Our ancient aspiration-land
Inside our own hearts.

21873

I have been to God many times
Empty-handed,
But this time I have decided
That I shall give Him
What I truly consider my own:
My little "I".

21874

God is under no obligation
To accept me as His consultant
For everything that He does.

21875

Eagerness
Gives us the wings
To fly
In the sky of freedom.

21876

If I do not truly treasure
The few moments I spend with God,
Why should God bless me
With hours to spend with Him?

21877

God was dumbfounded
When He saw my heart
Of endless ingratitude.

21878

What does detachment mean?
Detachment means
An indomitable protection-shield.

21879

If a surrender-seed
Grows only in one season,
And does not grow all the time,
Then it is not
A real surrender-seed at all.

21880

A God-lover is he
Who wants to come out of
His pride-prison-life.

21881

My gratitude-heart
Is precisely the place
Where angels dwell.

21882

My mind's supermarket thinks
That it is as good as,
If not better than,
My heart-temple.

21883

O seeker,
Once upon a time
You definitely had
A life of surrender
And a heart of gratitude.
Dive deep within.
You will discover
Your own lost treasure.

21884

Like my heart,
I want my mind
To be always optimistic.

21885

I do not know whether
My mind's sun is rising or setting,
But I do know that
My heart's aspiration-life
Will never cease to exist.

21886

God gives us opportunities
A great many times
To disappoint our attachments
Long before our attachments
Dare to disappoint us.

21887

Only a life
Of God-surrender
Has an ecstasy-melody-heart.

21888

God answers my prayers
Only when He sees
That I shall not misuse
His Answer.

21889

God's Compassion
Does not hide from me.
It is my expectation
That is taking me away
From God's Compassion-Eye.

21890

In the inner world
There is a secret name
For expectation,
And that secret name is
Demand.

21891

The vital possessions
Have the capacity to destroy
The physical possessions.

The mental possessions
Have the capacity to destroy
The vital possessions.

The psychic possessions
Have the capacity to destroy
The mental possessions,
But the psychic possessions
Illumine the mental possessions
Instead.

21892

My mind craves
For the freedom of voice,
Binding and blinding.
My heart longs
For the freedom of choice,
Self-giving and all-illumining.

21893

My heart consciously likes
To be a purity-distributor
Every day.
My mind unconsciously
If not consciously likes
To become an impurity-collector.

21894

A God-oneness-heart
Can never be deceived.
It can only be amused.

21895

Every morning God invites me
To visit His Compassion-Home.
But I cherish
My own frustration-home;
Therefore I do not accept
His Invitation.

21896

God's Way
Will remain misunderstood by humanity
Unless and until
Humanity perfects its life-breath
In God-surrender.

21897

God's Sound-Messenger
Has not satisfied me.
God's Silence-Messenger
Has not satisfied me.
Only God's Forgiveness-Messenger
Can and will satisfy me.

21898

God receives me only when
My mind's simplicity and sincerity
And my heart's humility and purity
Accompany me to His Palace.

21899

Do not invoke either
The tears or the smiles
Of tomorrow.
Just try to transcend
Tomorrow's tears and smiles
To live in the Satisfaction-Heart-Nest
Of your Lord Supreme.

21900

I ask God
How I can make Him happy.
God tells me
There is only one way
To make Him happy,
And that is through
The happiness of my entire being.
