From God
And from His choice Hour.

2

The weeping
God the man
I love.

The smiling
Man the God
I need.

4

Only true God-lovers
Have the key
To open
Heaven’s Heart-Door.

5

God asks me
Never to miss
Even a single chance
To please Him
In His own Way.

6

The love divine
Is at once God-remembrance
And self-forgetfulness.

7

My unconditional surrender
To God’s Will
Has to be made here and now,
And not in the far distant future.

8

In the inner world,
Silence is made of power.

9

In the outer world,
Silence is made of joy.

My aspiration
Has another name:
My God-intoxication.

Each time I cry for God,
He blesses me
With a new horizon.

12

A sleepless oneness-heart
Is the only thing
That the world badly needs.

13

A mind that all the time
Confuses and refuses?
What you need
Is a God-loving heart.

Each divine action
Is, indeed,
A God-Fragrance-Joy.

My Lord Supreme
Is never pleased
With my mind-forest.

Always
With my heart-garden.

Means the beauty
Of the universal heart
And the fragrance
Of the transcendental soul.

Sweeter than the sweetest
And
Stronger than the strongest.

Time
Destroys
The human in us.

Time
Employs
The divine in us.

The mind
Wants war.
The hand
Supports it.

Open your heart!
Close your lips!
This is how a seeker
Must speak to God.

23

Explore, explore!
Very soon
You will be able to knock
At God’s Heart-Door.

Each day is my
Heart-blossom-opportunity-day.

As the highest height
Is for us,
Even so, the lowest abyss
Is against us.

I must go far beyond
The snares of this world.

Even when we deliberately enjoy
Earth-ignorance.

His life-boat
On my heart-river.

Is the most important thing
In whatever I do,
Whatever I say.

Of my wakefulness
To my Lord’s Compassion-Eye.

When I prayerfully cry,
God allows me
To dive into His Depths.

When I soulfully smile,
God allows me
To fly into His Heights.

Alas,
It is I
Who am not available.
My Lord
Is always available.

My gratitude-heart-tears
Sleeplessly sing
God’s Victory-Songs.

And only then can you be
A God-lover.

A God-dreamer I was.
I now am at once
Both a God-lover
And a God-server.

I try to fulfil
My tomorrow’s dream
In my today’s life.

Before it is too late,
Convince yourself
That you love God only
And you need God only.

Not two closed eyes
But only one open heart
Is needed
To welcome God.

God’s first and foremost Choice
Is the silence-garden
Of my heart-home.

Every God-seeker-moment
Awakens us
To a higher height.

My heart-page
Is full of Blessings
Written by God Himself.

53

My mind-page
Is all blank,
Empty of God’s Message.

54

All souls
Struggle and struggle and struggle
Inside the body-cage,
But eventually they bring victory
To their Lord Supreme.

55

If there is even an iota of fear
In approaching God,
Then God immediately
Runs away.

56

God and I
Share a great many secrets.
Our hearts breathe them
Day in and day out.

57

My God-hope is blooming.
My God-promise is blossoming.
My thoughts are all
God’s Heart-Garden-Flowers.

Can easily break through
The darkest
Ignorance-night-boundaries
Of the mind.

My Lord’s Compassion
Devours
All my blunders.

Brightens the Face
Of my Lord Supreme.

My Lord’s special Blessings
Wherever it goes.

Grow
Faster than the fastest.

My heart loves
The weeping God
Much more than
The smiling God.
Why?
The weeping God hastens
My progress-life.

66

The love divine
Is at once shadowless
And limitless.

67

To hear is not enough.
To see is not enough.
To feel is enough,
More than enough.

Every morning
I place my very best
And my very worst
At the Feet
Of my Lord Supreme.

Of surrender.

In the land
Of darkening evening.

Rising joy.
