My Christmas-New Year-Vacation Aspiration-Prayers, part 18

Return to the table of contents

11

No limit
To what my love, devotion
And surrender can do,
Not only for me,
But also for the entire world.


  1. APR 1567. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 27 December 2002.

2

Keep singing, keep singing!
God will soon be arriving.

3

If I continue calling,
My life will blossom
And my Lord Supreme
Will smile, sing and dance.

4

The exquisite bliss
Of my God-surrender-life
Nobody on earth
Can hamper.

5

My Master’s tears and smiles
Are the only members
Of my heart-family.

6

The desiring mind
Is apt to brood.
The aspiring heart
Is apt to bleed.

7

God’s Compassion-Eye intervenes
Between
Man’s Himalayan blunders
And his well-deserved punishment.

8

God’s Compassion-Confidence in me
Is my only
Competence-victory.

9

My Lord,
Your ceaseless Tears I see
Not only in my heart,
But also in every heart.
My Lord,
Your Nectar-Smiles I see
Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere.

101

I give my Lord Supreme
Unimaginable joy and pride
When I am able
To steal His Compassion-Eye
And His Forgiveness-Heart.


  1. APR 1567. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 28 December 2002.

11

To protect me
From the undivine forces,
My Beloved Supreme
Has kept His Eye and His Heart
As my sentinels at my heart-gate.

12

Every moment is a golden opportunity
For me to love and serve
The tears and the smiles of the world.

13

I must disregard and discard
What my mind thinks of me
And says about me.

14

I do not go to the sky-moon —
I go to my heart-moon
For it to inspire me
And inundate me
With Infinity’s Peace and Bliss.

15

I have many desires,
But my Lord has only one:
My constant happiness.

16

Day and night
My soul is helping me
To discount all my worries
And anxieties.

17

God loves
My very, very short-distance prayers
And not
My ultramarathon-distance prayers.

18

God’s unseen Hand
Most lovingly
And most compassionately
Takes my hands
To show me the way
To the Golden Shore.

19

My greatness depends on
The acceptance of the world.
My goodness depends on
The Love and Concern
Of my Beloved Supreme.

201

Every morning and every evening
My complete God-surrender-life
Is cradled
By the beauty and the fragrance
Of Heaven.


  1. APR 1586. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 29 December 2002.

21

I must keep my heart’s love
And my life’s gratitude
Always together.

22

Love shows the road.
Devotion walks on the road.
Surrender takes love and devotion
To the Destination.

23

I write my Lord’s biography
With my shallower than the shallowest
Book-knowledge.

24

My Lord writes my biography
With His ever-increasing Heart-Tears
And
With His ever-increasing Soul-Smiles.

25

I must become a perfect stranger
To ignorance-sleep
So that I can grow into
A God-lover
Of the highest magnitude.

26

The human in me
Has only one task to perform:
Awake!

27

The divine in me
Has three tasks to perform:
Bravely march forward,
Sleeplessly climb upward,
Breathlessly dive inward.

28

Silence is God’s
Secret and sacred
Man-Enlightenment-Whisper.

29

Humanity’s life
Is nothing but
A fragile faith in God.

301

My outer suffering
Is
My inner courage-builder.


  1. APR 1596. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 30 December 2002.

31

My inner suffering
Is
My outer eye-opener.

32

Patience
Is the most sublime progress
In disguise.

33

The real Master is chosen
By the real seeker in us,
And not by the mind — never!

34

God has repeatedly told me
That He is interested
Only in what I am doing,
And not what I am saying.

35

There was a time
When I had a volley of questions,
But now I have only one question:
Do I have a real God-hunger?

36

When I pray,
I pray with my upward eyes
To see my Lord’s Eye.

37

When I meditate,
I meditate with my inward heart
To sit at my Lord’s Feet.

38

During my deepest meditation,
I hear my Lord Beloved Supreme
Secretly whispering:
“My child, you were born to be
My Eternity’s Greatness,
My Infinity’s Goodness
And My Immortality’s Fulness.
My child, this message
Is not only for you,
But it is for each and every
Creation of Mine.”

391

God’s Compassion-Eye-Inspiration
Is
My Godward journey’s start.


  1. APR 1605. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 31 December 2002.

40

God’s Tears
Wake my heart.
God’s Smiles
Shake my life.

41

My aspiration
Means the beginning
Of my God-oneness-cry and smile.

42

My Lord Supreme,
Will You be able to believe me
When I say that I love You
Infinitely more than I love myself?

43

To love others
Before we love ourselves
Is, indeed,
A very rare achievement.

44

God knows and sees
That my heart is very rich
In world-concern.
Therefore He has made me
A supremely chosen instrument
Of His Heart.

45

My creativity-beauty
Comes from my Lord’s
Activity-Fountain.

46

The beauty and profundity
Of my heart-tears
Only my Master deeply values.

47

When I try to keep a secret
From God,
He terribly suffers
From my utter stupidity.

481

I must admit,
In all sincerity,
That God has smiled at me
Infinitely more times
Than I have cried for Him.


  1. APR 1614. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 1 January 2003.

49

Every day
My soul’s fragrance-delight
Is intensifying
My heart’s aspiration-cry.

50

My desire-life,
It is getting late!
Go to sleep, go to sleep!

51

My aspiration-heart,
It is getting late!
Wake up, wake up!

52

The hesitation-mind
And the insecurity-life
Love to live together.

53

I must shun two things —
Self-doubt and world-indifference —
To make the fastest progress
In my spiritual life.

54

Since we human beings have created
The darkest night of the world,
It is our bounden duty to illumine
The darkest night of the world.

55

God’s Mind-Philosophy
Is Forgiveness.
God’s Heart-Song
Is Forgiveness.
God’s Life-Story
Is Forgiveness.

56

Only my heart-microscope
Can measure the distance
Between my life-tears
And my death-smiles.

57

Each day
Is a Power-Sun-
Revelation-Manifestation
Of God.
Each night
Is a Compassion-Moon-
Revelation-Manifestation
Of God.

58

Compassion
Is the success-secret
Of the higher world.

59

Love
Is the success-secret
Of the inner world.

60

Smile
Is the success-secret
Of the outer world.

611

Surrender is the fastest highway
That leads us
To the Transcendental Heights.


  1. APR 1627. These prayers were given in Christchurch, New Zealand — 2 January 2003

62

Wherever we go,
We must carry with us
Our heart’s aspiration-flames.

63

Only my God-gratitude-heart-tears
Enable me to fly
In the sky of Infinity.

64

God gets tremendous Joy
And Satisfaction
When He is able to sail His Dream-Boat
In my life’s devotion-river.

65

The mind does nothing
For God,
Yet it expects Love from God
All the time.

66

This world of ours will be perfect
Only when our God-service-life
Is constantly on the march.

67

God is extremely happy to see
That His Immensity
And my intensity
Are sleeplessly growing together.

68

Spirituality
Is a breathless
Self-transcendence-adventure.

69

My world-improvement-service-joy
Is more precious to God
Than anything else.

70

My meditation-time
Is my Lord’s
Only resting-hour.

71

My Lord and I deeply enjoy
Our mutual appreciation:
My Lord tells me
That my heart-tears
Are inimitable.
I tell my Lord
His Eye-Smiles
Are inimitable.

721.

I must and I must discover,
As soon as possible,
The key to my Lord’s Heart-Home.


  1. APR 1638. These prayers were given in Cairns, Australia — 5 January 2003

73

Nothing human in me
Exists any more.
I have become today
A supremely choice instrument
Of my Lord Supreme.

74

God’s Heart
Is in each moment.
God’s Eye
Is in each movement.

75

No more my aspiration-heart
Shall suffer
From God-separation-pangs.

76

May every morning
My aspiration-heart-garden
Produce a most beautiful
God-gratitude-rose.

77

The disobedience of the mind
Is a very, very old story.
The obedience of the heart
Is a most soulful song
That has neither beginning
Nor end.

78

My Beloved Supreme,
Out of His infinite Bounty,
Tells me that my entire life
Is a most powerful song-bridge
Between humanity’s tears
And Divinity’s Smiles.

79

Today my heart
Is a meditation-plant.
Tomorrow my life
Shall become a Heaven-climbing tree.
