Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 267
26601When the Master Lord Supreme
Plays on His cosmic Harp,
His transcendental Life-Heart
Simply explodes with Delight.
26602Every morning God comes down
The sacred altar of my self-offering
With His divine Pride.
26603Only the beauty and love
Of a childlike heart
Can transform the nature of the world.
26604There are many people on earth
Who love to live
With their delusion-fantasies.
26605The soul is every day,
Every hour and every minute
Asking the body, vital, mind and heart
To enter into the soul
And become as enriched as the soul is.
26606Even the worst possible beggar
Can have a loftier than the loftiest aim
For the transformation of mankind.
26607If you do not have inner strength,
Then God will not welcome you
To be on His Path.
26608Among the spiritual qualities,
Humility’s role can never be
It can only be felt.
26609Fear, doubt, jealousy
Have such power to ruin
Our God-blessed happiness.
26610It is useless to ask the doubting mind
And the strangling vital
To stop fighting.
Let us deal only with the heart —
The heart that aspires
The heart that wants to love God.
26611The soul touches the Feet
Of the Lord Supreme
Every morning and evening.
It is the heart, vital, mind and body
That have no time even to look at Him.
26612No matter how many ways
We try to escape from the reality-world,
We shall never be able to.
Therefore, it is advisable
To be in the reality-world
And become true citizens
Of the reality-world.
26613The soul silently tells us
What to do.
The soul secretly tells us
What to do.
But alas, we do not pay any attention
To the silent and secret messages
Of our soul.
May perpetually move forward,
But it has no destination.
26615The soul-driver of my life
Is always careful and blessingful.
The heart-driver of my life
Is careful and prayerful.
The mind-driver of my life
Is never careful.
Is the most dedicated exponent
And highest expression
Of the Absolute Lord Supreme.
26617Unless we transcend
Our earthly speech and earthly thought,
We shall not be able to arrive
At the Golden Shore
Of God-Perfection and God-Satisfaction.
26618Either consciously or unconsciously
We are searching for the highest Self,
Which is at once eternal and infinite.
26619The experience of God’s Compassion-Eye
Can never be compared
With any other experience.
26620Definitely the Real in us
Is always eager to come to the fore,
But we do not allow, we do not allow!
26621To bring about the harmony
Of all humanity,
We must not allow ourselves
To feed the quenchless thirst
26622To love the Supreme’s Way
Of doing things
Is to become the Supreme’s Way
Of Divinity and Immortality.
26623Unless and until
Oneness with the Supreme
Nothing is beautiful,
Nothing is encouraging,
Nothing is illumining,
Nothing is fulfilling.
26624My Lord’s blessingful Eye
Is my ecstasy’s height,
And ecstasy’s length.
26625Along with spiritual food,
Earthly food also is necessary
To make the journey of the spirit
Towards the Absolute Height.
26626I am advancing my simplicity-mind,
Purity-heart and self-giving life
26627Alas, I do not know
How I can get out of the disorder
Of the mind,
Which I have cherished
For a great many years.
26628My awareness of my spiritual life
Because I deliberately shook hands
With the pride of ignorance-night.
26629Oneness is complete
Only when compassion
26630Our Lord Absolute
Is always ready
To rescue us from danger,
If we just let Him.
26631How can I have peace in my world
Amid the turmoil of the outer world?
My Lord says to me:
“Just feel that there is only one world,
And that is My world,
My Divinity’s all-illumining world.”
26632You are looking for the centre
Of the universe.
I am saying to you that the true centre
Of the universe
Is inside the little room
Of your God-worshipping heart.
26633May my morning lotus-prayers
Awaken my sleeping mind
To join me.
26634My faith in God
Is my heart’s beauty
And my soul’s fragrance.
26635If you want to love and serve someone,
Then love and serve that person
With your newness-mind,
With your oneness-heart
With your fulness-hands.
26636To tear our mind’s worries
We need very special Blessings,
Very special Love
Very special Compassion
From our Lord Supreme.
26637Gratitude, only gratitude,
Is what we need
To have a receptivity-heart.
26638May my mind also cherish,
The way my heart cherishes,
26639Our sweet, sweeter, sweetest
Expedite our Godward journey
Far beyond our imagination.
Will eventually bring in
Our life’s transformation-satisfaction.
26641God-dreamers live inside the heart.
God-lovers live inside the heart.
But God-examiners live inside the mind.
26642The eagerness of the heart
And willingness of the mind
Have discovered the shortest road
To arrive at God’s Feet.
26643My morning God-obedience-songs
My evening God-obedience-songs
Are the only realities in my life
That I can truly be proud of.
26644To hoist our faith-banner,
We must every day
Increase our love for God.
26645My Lord, why are You crying?
“My child, I am crying
Because you are not smiling.”
26646There are different types of tears,
But the tears that we shed
To develop our unconditional love
Are the only tears that I really need.
26647To make the fastest progress,
Every day I pray to God
To give me the sweetness-innocence
Of a child-heart.
26648Do not mock any God-lover
For everybody at one time
Has to play the role of a beginner.
26649Be extremely careful.
If you criticise others,
Yours will be the spiritual doom
Sooner than the soonest.
Believe me when I tell you
That the time is fast approaching
For you to surrender to God’s Will.
26651Your temporary failure
Is not the end.
It is the beginning
Of a new illumining hope
And the beginning
Of a new fulfilling progress.
26652When I give something
And I remain unrecognised,
Then only my self-giving
Is true and perfect.
26653I do not know how many more heartaches
I must suffer
Because my desires are not fulfilled
In my own way.
26654God never appreciates
He appreciates and admires
Only my sacredness-heart.
26655O my mind,
Every day you are making
Feeble attempts at obedience.
How can you then ever succeed?
26656Next time I get a chance
To speak to God,
I shall ask Him, without fail,
To tell me the secret
Of unconditional surrender.
26657God loves me most
When I cheerfully agree
To play with
His ill-fated children.
26658For me there is no day,
I follow my Lord’s express Will.
26659My Lord, if You wish to use me,
I shall be grateful.
If You do not wish to use me,
I shall be equally grateful.
Only to please You in Your own Way
I saw the light of day.
26660It is God who creates opportunities for us
In boundless measure.
And what else?
He also appreciates us for using them.
26661When I try to fool someone
In the spiritual life,
I do not realise that I am dealing with
The Real in him — God.
26662When I give my Lord Supreme
A small quantity of my love and faith,
He blessingfully and proudly tells me:
“My child, I have come.
Receive from Me My All.”
26663I am happy when I see
First my Lord’s Eye and then His Feet.
But I am infinitely happier when I see
His Feet first and then His Eye.
God’s Eye is my Protection.
God’s Feet are my Salvation.
26664My Lord Supreme,
Do tell me where I am supposed to live
I want you to live every day
Inside your heart-garden of self-giving.”
26665Each time I disobey God,
Either consciously or unconsciously,
I am forced to take a giant step
Away from God.
26666Every day I face
And every day I succeed.
26667Every day increase your love for God.
Then you will see
That the darkness of your mind
Will, without fail,
Be completely dissolved.
26668What is my heart?
My heart is a dream of God
That every day is increasing
Its beauty, its lustre and its divinity.
I need my heart-freedom first
For the establishment
Of my mind-illumination.
26670What I need is a mind of patience.
What I need is a heart of poise.
What I need is a life of surrender,
26671Secretly the angels guide us,
And proudly they tell God
That we are quite receptive
To God’s Will.
26672You have to compel your mind
To take a long vacation
So that you and your heart
Can work together
For the manifestation of God’s Will
26673In the mind-jungle we notice
That gratitude is out of season
All the time.
26674All your secrets are safe
When you keep them
In your aspiration-heart
26675When I offer an aspiration-rose
To my Lord Supreme,
He blesses me with a bouquet
Of His Compassion-Blossoms.
26676The climbing earth-cries
Breathe the Heavenly fragrance
26677When we live
In the unsearching mind,
We live in the age
Of total uncertainty.
26678My mind does not believe in
World-information any more.
It wants only world-illumination,
And for that it is going to study
At God’s God-Surrender-School.
26679What is it
That touches my heart?
My Lord’s Compassion-Eye-Delight.
26680Faith and doubt
Course through me.
I am so happy
Faith always wins.
26681My mind’s complexities
Are totally destroying
26682My body lives inside
The purity of my heart-smiles.
My life lives inside
The divinity of my soul-smiles.
26683After a long time,
My long-lost inspiration-mind
Have come back to me.
26684I tremendously fear
Only one thing:
26685O seeker, do not forget
That you entered into the spiritual life
For inner accomplishments
And not for outer fulfilments.
26686When our mind is flooded
With inner silence,
Then our mind will have
Free access to God
The way our heart of aspiration
26687At the last moment of our life,
If we pray to God for His Will to be done,
Then we are fooling ourselves.
We must pray for His Fulfilment
Throughout our life.
26688Every day God is blessing us
Of the most startling nature.
26689At every moment we need
Founded upon God’s Compassion-Light,
To fulfil God
And thus fulfil ourselves.
26690If our journey’s goal is success,
Then we will be totally fooled.
If our journey’s goal is progress,
Then God will be proud of us
And we shall be proud of ourselves.
26691In the spiritual life,
Nothing is of minor importance.
Is of supreme importance.
26692Sometimes when we take
Our spiritual life
With utmost seriousness
And give no relaxation to the mind,
We are not able to enjoy the Playfulness
Of the Absolute Supreme.
26693At every moment
We need the heart-nurturing
And life-giving springs
26694We must destroy the prison-house
Of our name and fame
To be inside Divinity’s
26695The mind’s screen
Has ever-flickering images —
26696This morning when I went to see God,
His Compassion-Heart gave me
A broad Smile of Acceptance.
I keep my appointment with God
Early in the morning.
I give myself no way to miss
My regular duty.
26698My mind is roaring with determination.
My heart is flying with aspiration.
Therefore, I know my Goal
Is just next door.
26699My soul wants me to enjoy
The brilliance and radiance-ecstasy
Of my God-seeker-victory
26700When we really love God
With our every breath,
Then God gives us
His Dream-fulfilled, sumptuous
