And Heaven-Smiles
Are God’s childhood friends.

Value your self-discipline.
Self-discipline is the way.
Self-discipline will bring you
To God’s Heart-Door.

We obey God.
God obeys our love,
Unconditional love,
For Him.

When the gratitude-heart
Fully blossoms,
The transformation of life
Begins.

My Lord is my Friend,
Only Friend.
I do not need
A multitude of friends.

6

Soulfully and self-givingly
I sing and sing
At the top of my voice
To become a choice instrument
Of God.

The outer success
We can easily measure,
But the inner progress
Is extremely difficult to measure.

Today’s God-disobedience
Tomorrow becomes
Life’s worst possible catastrophe.

9

He who dreams of God
Quite often
In the small hours of the morning
Becomes a God-lover
Of the highest magnitude.

I love God,
Not because He is
Divinely great
And not because He is
Supremely good,
But because He is my All,
Very All.

God-obedience-lessons
Are compulsory
From the journey’s start
To the journey’s close.

May each and every thought
Of mine
Be always Heaven-bound.

And I
Shall remain.

And His deepest Depth.

Never become tired
Of your inward dive!
