My Christmas-New Year-Vacation Aspiration-Prayers, part 15

Return to the table of contents

11

If everybody knew
How unconditional at every moment
God truly is,
This world would have become
The Garden of Eden.


  1. APR 1325. These prayers were given in Hamilton, New Zealand — 27 November 2002.

2

O seeker,
Do not forget
That curiosity-attacks
Can be extremely dangerous.

3

My fame
Is fleeting.
My God-surrender-joy
Is everlasting.

4

Nothing is incurable —
No, not even the wild suspicions
Of the mind.

5

I must wake up
And join my heart’s
Sleepless cries for God.

6

No matter what others think of me
Or say about me,
I shall always take the side
Of my aspiration-heart.

7

A true God-lover
Is, indeed,
A true God-manifestation-light-hero-warrior.

8

An aspiration-heart
Is always in search of
A worry-free life.

9

God has a very special plan
For me.
I must not allow my mind
To indulge in useless expectations,
Worries and anxieties.

10

Every day I must practise
My God-surrender-songs
At least for ten minutes.

11

As I treasure
My God’s Forgiveness-Smiles,
Even so, He treasures
My gratitude-tears.

12

Some seekers do not pray and meditate
Even once a week.
Therefore the sages and the seers
Of the hoary past
Are horrified
At their aspiration-forgetfulness
And aspiration-negligence.

13

Finally my prayerful life
Is becoming a unique
God-gratitude-heart-beauty-fragrance.

141

May this be my last message
To Your Eye, my Lord:
That I shall obey Your Eye only.


  1. APR 1338. These prayers were given in Hamilton, New Zealand — 28 November 2002.

15

May this be my last message
To Your Heart, my Lord:
That I shall love Your Heart only.

16

May this be my last message
To Your Feet, my Lord:
That I shall devour
The dust of Your Feet only.

17

In a very slow measure,
I give to God
What I have.

18

In a sudden rapture,
God gives to me
What He is.

19

When God came to him
For the first time,
God saw his heart
Fast asleep.
Therefore, God went back
To His celestial Abode.

20

When God came to him
For the second time,
His mind rejected God.

21

When God came to him
For the third time,
His vital ignored God.

22

When God came to him
For the fourth time,
His life criticised God.

23

When God came to him
For the fifth time,
He asked God
Why He continued coming.
He asked God if God was a beggar
Or a robber.


(23. continued)

God said to him,
“My child,
I am neither a beggar
Nor a robber.
I just cannot help seeing you,
For you are My Divinity’s
Self-Transcendence-Dream.”

24

It is only when
My heart flies and flies and flies
In Infinity’s skies
That God shows me
Where lies the path
Of His Immortality’s Smiles.

251

When I pray,
I can touch God’s Feet.
When I meditate,
I can feel God’s Heart.


  1. APR 1349. These prayers were given in Hamilton, New Zealand — 1 December 2002.

26

God wants
My self-discipline-life
To mingle
With His proudest Smile.

27

My mind wants to be
The God-knower.
My heart wishes to be
The God-lover.

28

My God-dependence-joy
Has no equal.

29

My mind carries yesterday’s
Failure-bondage.
My heart carries tomorrow’s
Victory-garland.

30

The finite power
Challenges.
The infinite Power
Embraces.

31

Earth is a stranger
To Heaven’s ceaseless Smiles.
Heaven is a stranger
To earth’s helpless tears.

32

God’s golden Heart
Descends.
Man’s broken heart
Ascends.

33

When my mind
Salutes God,
He immediately plays
His Rhapsody-Flute.

34

God’s Greatness
Puzzles and blinds me.
God’s Goodness
Cradles and nestles me.

351

May a gratitude-flower
Be found
In each heartbeat
Of mine.


  1. APR 1359. These prayers were given in Taupo, New Zealand — 2 Decemberr 2002.

36

Mine is a heart
Of eagerness.
God’s is a Breath
Of Closeness.

37

O my stupid mind,
How long are you going to enjoy
Negativity’s torrential rain?

38

God says to my heart,
“My child, I have a beautiful story
To tell you.”
My heart says to God,
“Father, I have a soulful song
To sing for You.”
“My child, My story
Is all about your previous life
When you were My fondness-lamb.”
“My Father, my song
Is all about my immediate future
When You will make me
Your inseparable oneness-heart-hero.”

39

Mine is a greedy mind
For God’s constant
Outer attention.

40

Mine is a hungry heart
For God’s ceaseless
Inner Compassion.

411

For my life’s outer success,
I depend one hundred per cent
On God’s Compassion-Eye.


  1. APR 1365. These prayers were given in Taupo, New Zealand — 3 December 2002.

42

For my life’s inner progress,
I depend one hundred per cent
On God’s Forgiveness-Feet.

43

For my life’s inner cries
And outer smiles,
I depend one hundred per cent
On God’s Satisfaction-Heart.

44

May my heart’s burning aspiration
Go a very long way in awakening
The God-sleeping human lives.

45

The great men
May often badly fail us
In our high expectations
Of their life-conduct.
But the good men
Can never, never fail us
In awakening, inspiring
And aspiring in and through us
For us to reach our destined Goal.

46

For the mind,
God-surrender
Is a totally new approach.

47

O God-seekers and God-lovers,
Let us join
God’s Oneness-Victory-Drum-March!

48

Let me be sincere to myself
At least once:
Since I joined the spiritual path,
I have come to know myself
Infinitely better.

49

My faith in my Master
Shall definitely conquer
All my doubts
In any context.

501

My Lord’s blessingful Requests
Do not believe in tomorrow.
They believe only
In here and now.


  1. APR 1374. These prayers were given in Taupo, New Zealand — 4 December 2002.

51

My life’s
God-fulfilment-willingness-dictionary
Does not house the word
“Impossibility.”

52

Three real enemies
We all have:
Hesitation, procrastination
And frustration.

53

The core of spirituality
Is at once our inner choice
And outer voice.

54

A true seeker is he
Who is always cheerfully committed
To God-satisfaction-dreams.

55

My prayer is my Lord’s
Protection-umbrella.

56

My meditation is my Lord’s
Protection-fort.

57

My proud mouth loves to preach
All the time.
My soulful hands love to practise
All the time.

58

The outer voice may speak
Many languages.
The inner voice speaks
Only one language:
The language of the heart.

59

May my life once again become
A child’s
Purity-sweetness-flooded heart.

601

Mine is a God-bestowed vision,
Far beyond
The misty self-doubt-mountains.


  1. APR 1384. These prayers were given in Taupo, New Zealand — 5 December 2002.

61

Unconditional surrender
Is a springboard
To Divinity’s lofty heights.

62

My mind does not dare to bring me
Torturous doubt-waves
Any more.

63

God’s inner Name
Is Compassion.
His outer Name
Is Concern.

64

The more I can love the world,
The sooner I shall be able
To forgive the world.

65

Every morning my Lord Supreme
Invites me to be with Him
During His Delight-Chariot-Ride.

66

I must not forget
That each wrong desire
Has a strangling grip.

67

Each good thought
Has two long-stretched
Sheltering arms of light.

68

A meditation-life
Is the only escape
From the dire bondage of time.

69

God’s inner Tears
And His outer Smiles
Protect His favourite children
Every day.

701

My Lord,
Only to You my sleepless life
And my breathless heart
Shall remain open.


  1. APR 1394. These prayers were given in Taupo, New Zealand — 6 December 2002.

71

My Lord proudly chooses
My unconditional surrender-life.

72

God tells me
That my purity-heart
Is by far the best shrine.

73

God tells me
That my smiles have made Him
Extremely, extremely strong.

74

God comes to me and tells me,
“My child, let us measure
Sincerely and proudly
Each other’s heart.”

75

My sincere concern
For the poor world
God deeply appreciates and admires.

76

O my heart,
Once you start repeating
My Lord’s Name,
Never, never stop!

77

Today I am under very strict orders
From my Lord Beloved Supreme
To remain happy and cheerful
At every moment.

78

My life-boat
Has reached the Golden Shore
At my Lord’s ambrosial Feet.

79

Finally
God has some good news for me:
He is telling me
That I shall not fail Him
Any more.
