Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 236

Return to the table of contents

23501

It is not enough to know
That God is very powerful.
You also have to feel
That He really loves you.

23502

You decide:
You can go far away from God,
Or you can take every opportunity
To be absolutely dearest and closest
To God's Heart, to God's Soul,
To God's Life, to God's Vision
And to God's Mission.

23503

You may think
You are sincerely doing your best
To expand your heart,
But you can do even more:
You can make room for others
Inside your oneness-heart.

23504

If it is difficult for us to identify
With the good qualities of others,
It will be difficult for us to value
Those same good qualities
In ourselves.

23505

If you feel you are quite perfect,
Then become more perfect
By forgiving others
Instead of speaking ill of them.

23506

If you think you are a better person
Than somebody else,
Then become infinitely better
By proving that you can establish
Divine harmony with everyone.

23507

Jealousy is not going to leave your life
Unless and until you have established
Your real, permanent oneness
With God the creation.

23508

If you listen to your Lord Supreme
Cheerfully at every second,
You can have no inner fear,
Doubt or jealousy.

23509

When His children
Are praying and meditating
And singing His Adoration-Songs,
God the Father gets boundless Joy
And boundless Satisfaction.

23510

If you have
Sleeplessly mounting aspiration,
You will not and cannot do anything
To displease your Beloved Supreme.

23511

The supreme Dream
That God is cherishing
Inside each of us
Must be transformed
Into a living reality.

23512

For your nature's transformation
Only one thing is needed:
Your cheerful, prayerful, soulful,
Ready, anxious and eager obedience
To the Will of the Supreme.

23513

God wants you to be loyal to Him
To the end, very end,
In your life of aspiration
And your life of dedication.

23514

Happiness
Is what you want from God.
Happiness
Is what God wants from you.
This happiness depends
On your constant oneness
With the Will of the Supreme.

23515

Our Lord Beloved Supreme
Does not actually punish us.
With His Heart's infinite Love,
He tries in every way to illumine us
So that we can become
His most perfect instruments.

23516

Be happy, divinely happy.
In your divine happiness
Is your unimaginable progress.

23517

Your so-called greatness
God does not need.
What God needs is your goodness:
Your goodness-heart
And your goodness-life.

23518

Remember, just remember
Your own divinity-manifestations:
In how many countless ways
You have served the Supreme,
Loved the Supreme
And fulfilled the Supreme.
These are your true divine possessions.

23519

Two wings of our soul-bird:
Hope and promise.
With our hope, we walk, march, run
And fly towards our destination.
With our promise, we bring the destination
Unmistakably towards us.

23520

Each soulful song I sing
Is a gratitude-flower
From my heart
To my Beloved Lord Supreme.

23521

He who continues to disobey
His Lord Beloved Supreme
Slowly and steadily digs a big hole
In his spiritual life.

23522

O unpardonable, insincere seekers,
Can you not see that your ugliness-life
Is revealed and manifested
On your faces?

23523

If you have an iota of sincerity
In your mind
And an iota of purity
In your heart,
You can march forward,
Fly upward and dive inward.

23524

To you the spiritual life
May seem boring, boring, boring.
But to me the spiritual life
Will always be crying, crying, crying
For God
And soaring, soaring, soaring
To God.

23525

If you can feel that you are
A seven-year-old child,
Filled with enthusiasm, readiness,
Willingness and eagerness,
The spiritual life will never fail you.

23526

Inspiration, aspiration and dedication
Are three branches of one tree,
And that tree is called the life-tree.
The life-tree has also three more branches:
Love, devotion and surrender.

23527

God suffers in your hands
Because He feels
That you do not care for Him.
You suffer in God's Hands
Because you think
That He is an autocrat.

23528

If you are not for your Lord Supreme
One hundred per cent,
Then you cannot claim Him
As your spiritual Father,
But at most as an acquaintance.

If you are one hundred per cent
For your Absolute Lord Supreme,
Then you are His all,
And He is your All.

23529

Truth-seekers and God-lovers
Who obey God unconditionally
Deserve His Heart of Pride
Along with His Heart of Gratitude.

23530

If we use each day properly,
We can fulfil God and fulfil ourselves.
If we misuse and destroy our life,
Then earth will not care for our existence,
And Heaven will not care for our arrival.

23531

With utmost Affection, Compassion,
Fondness and Willingness,
God is prepared to carry you
On the longest road:
The birthless and deathless perfection-road.

23532

The Supreme owns only those
Who are with Him constantly,
Who are in Him constantly
And who are for Him constantly.

23533

You are bound
To climb upward immediately
High, higher, highest
If your heart's cry is sincere, simple,
Pure and sleeplessly self-giving.

23534

The more soulfully and prayerfully
You can sing divinity-songs,
The sweeter you will feel
Your own heartbeat
And your own life-breath.

23535

God's choice Hour
And man's choice hour
Are never the same,
For God's choice Hour
Will always be ahead,
Far ahead.

23536

God's Vision-Eye
And God's Compassion-Eye
Are constantly feeding us,
Nourishing us and inspiring us
To wake up.

23537

We fear that God will come
Without informing us,
But God need not inform us.
It is we who have to keep
Our willingness and eagerness
Always ready for His Arrival.

23538

My heart of love has become
The Creator's beaming Smiles
And the creation's streaming tears.

23539

You tell me that
God can be seen,
God can be felt
And God can be realised
And manifested.
I want to follow
In your success-footsteps.

23540

O my mind,
Never, never betray
My heart's inner voice,
Which is my Eternity's polestar-friend.

23541

God-creation is our heart's
Only true gospel.
Self-destruction is our mind's
Only true gospel.

23542

Simplicity has the master key
To open sublimity's room
And reality's safe.

23543

When I pray to God
With severe austerity,
God asks me instead
To play with His creation self-givingly.
He says that if I can play self-givingly
With His creation,
I shall please Him infinitely more.

23544

Careless, we play
In our mind's obscurity.
Sleepless and selfless, we sing
In our heart's profundity.

23545

If you do not bury
Your dead disappointments,
Who can and who will
Bury them for you?
Bury all your disappointments
Here and now!
Then run towards the effulgence
Of your soul's light and delight!

23546

O my mind,
You house the threat
Of nuclear annihilation.
But my heart,
Which is all aspiration-illumination,
Will, without fail,
Conquer you.

23547

The wonders of the outer world:
A sincerity-mind
And a sincerity-life.
The wonders of the inner world:
A purity-heart
And a purity-life.

23548

My prayerful mind,
My soulful heart
And my self-giving life
Are the three most significant boons
That I have received
From my Lord Beloved Supreme.

23549

If you want to manifest God's Will,
Then you must brave
The world's wild criticism-barrages.

23550

Each breath can be pure
If it is placed at the Feet
Of the Absolute Lord Supreme.

23551

All sincere, self-giving
Aspiration-attempts
Are bound to succeed
Either in the near future
Or in the distant future.

23552

A man of conscious, constant
And unconditional surrender
To God's Will
Is indeed a living miracle.

23553

To please God
You must renew and fulfil
Your old promises.
Only then will you be entitled
To make higher promises.

23554

Whenever I become a victim
To insecurity,
I give my Lord Supreme
A migraine headache.

23555

Man's mind is the story
Of separation-destruction.
Man's heart is the song
Of oneness-illumination.

23556

What I need
Is an ancient heart of purity
And a modern life of activity.

23557

God considers it a great joke
When my mind challenges my heart
To please God
More than my mind can please Him.

23558

God Himself is shocked to see
That His world-saving Patience
Is running short.

23559

My Lord,
All my heart's tears
I am ready to barter
For Your one fleeting Smile.

23560

Whenever I live in the aspiration-heart,
I clearly see and feel
That my Lord's Love is my All.

23561

My heart is telling me
That I can easily find roses
Where my critics find only thorns.

23562

I am so happy that God's Will
To fulfil me in His own Way
Is still very much alive.

23563

When we dedicate ourselves completely
To the Will of God,
We no longer remain infatuated
With this falsehood-temptation-world.

23564

True, outer failure may not be sweet,
But my God-surrender
Is sweet, sweeter, sweetest.

23565

What is human pride, after all?
It is something that has
A very fragile foundation.

23566

Every morning
I pray to my Lord Supreme
To bless me with gratitude
In plenitude
So that I can become happiness
Within and without.

23567

Once you have mastery
Over your animal qualities,
Your God-manifestation
And God-satisfaction-dreams
Will be fulfilled.

23568

How can God be pleased with you
And proud of you
If you are not specialised
In self-transcendence?

23569

To make a dream come true,
Do not do anything
To displease God.

23570

When God sees my mind,
He laughs and laughs
Until He is ready to cry.

23571

Nothing could please God more
Than my conscious withdrawal
From world-criticism-life.

23572

When your God-appointment-hour
Arrives,
Pray to God to fulfil
All your God-satisfaction-dreams.

23573

O my mind,
You cleverly fool yourself,
But you can never fool
God's all-seeing Eye.

23574

If your devotion to God is genuine,
Then God Himself will be responsible
For all your activities.

23575

If you do not have
A divine tenacity of purpose,
Then you can never fulfil God
In His own Way.

23576

May my heart's aspiration-cry
Belong to the heart
Of all humanity.

23577

We do not have to be
Confronted by our fate
If we pray to God
To make His Will our will.

23578

My Lord Supreme,
Do make my heart
A heart of conscious surrender
To Your Will,
So that I can enjoy
Your Nectar-Compassion-Flood.

23579

When my heart has gratitude
In boundless measure,
I need nothing more to please God.

23580

Every day you must try
To increase your love for God.
Otherwise your life may still
Be dashed upon the rocks
Of self-doubt.

23581

Those who live in the mind-forest
Make a foolish mockery
Of God's Peace-Dream-manifestation
On earth.

23582

When I allow doubt to guide me,
It invariably leads me
To a land of nowhere.

23583

My Lord Supreme,
May my aspiration-heart
Ascend and ascend
Towards the unknowable heights
Of God-intoxicated Vision.

23584

If I have a God-pleasing life,
Then God will take me far
Beyond the boundaries
Of Infinity and Eternity.

23585

May my spontaneous love of God
Transform everything and everyone
That comes to oppose me.

23586

God definitely wants me to remain
Here on earth to serve Him,
Instead of flying back
To my soul's kingdom.

23587

O my doubting mind,
Do not dare to reappear
In the guise of an advising friend!

23588

My Lord tells me
That nothing can be more illumining
And more fulfilling
Than my heart's soulfulness-tears.

23589

My aspiration-heart
And my dedication-life
Feed only
On God's Compassion-Smile.

23590

Not my mind's new and false
Truth-invention,
But my heart's old and true
Truth-discovery
Is the unparalleled road
To my God-destination.

23591

Like a child I must cry
To express my gratitude
Through my soulful smile.

23592

O my God-searching mind,
Go forward, go forward.
Do not allow your ancient fears
To haunt you.

23593

May my heart's hope
And my life's promise
Remain always inseparable
To please my Lord in His own Way.

23594

God the Fulfilment
And God the Satisfaction
Are within your heart's
Aspiration-reach.

23595

O my mind,
Your desire to eclipse
My heart's goodness
God will never be able
To satisfy.

23596

My mind the prison
And my heart the palace
Every day, without fail, invite me.
Alas, indecision is my name.

23597

I want to live
In a progress-worshipping era
And not in a success-demanding era.

23598

Each time I offer my gratitude-heart
To my Lord Supreme,
I am blessed with a deeper and richer
State of existence.

23599

When God wants to go on vacation,
He invites only my self-giving heart
To accompany Him.

23600

To embrace the whole world
In its totality,
I must develop the quality
Of infinite adaptability.
