My fifty gratitude-summers

Return to the table of contents

1.

Aspiration begins.
Surrender continues.
Gratitude concludes.

2.

Enthusiasm is
God's God-Beauty
In His seeker-children.

3.

Sincerity is my heart's
Silver dawn.
Purity is my soul's
Golden sunrise.

4.

We know and we do not know.
We know how to roam,
But we do not know
How to return Home.

5.

My Beloved Supreme,
I prayed to You to make me
A realised soul.
Alas!
Instead of making me
A realised soul,
You have made me
A mechanised human body.

6.

Aspiration
Is my heart's beauty.
Illumination
Is my soul's beauty.
Satisfaction
Is my Lord's Beauty.

7.

Forget what God has
Already forgotten:
Your insincerity-mind,
Your impurity-heart
And
Your ingratitude-life.

8.

How can I have
A new king: my God,
In my heart-kingdom
If I do not dethrone
The present king: my ego?

9.

My psychic gladness
And
My vital madness
Never live together.

10.

Be
A God-dreamer.
All your fear-tortures
Will leave you.

11.

When
I am sincere,
My Beloved Supreme
Is pleased with me.
When
I am pure,
I am satisfied
With my Beloved Supreme.

12.

God
Is for
My aspiring heart.
Spirituality
Is for
My searching mind.

13.

I pray to God
For His Absolute Vision
And not for
His Possession-Universe.

14.

My mind's discovery:
God has given me
Heavy burdens.
My heart's discovery:
God has given me
Strong shoulders.

15.

The gift of my outer life
To my inner life
Is my constantly soulful
Service.
The gift of my inner life
To my outer life
Is my sleeplessly fruitful
Love.

16.

Yesterday
My mind was
An uneducated and ignorant fool.
Today
My mind is
An educated and learned fool.
Tomorrow
My mind shall be
A sleepless ignorance-hunter.

17.

Am I ready to scold
My impurity-mind?
Am I?
Am I ready to warn
My insecurity-heart?
Am I?

18.

Because
You are a childlike believer,
Your God is a constant
Giver.

19.

He had to enter into
His own spiritual grave.
Why?
Because he was
Sleeplessly fond of his
Confusion-mind.

20.

I may not know
The beginning.
But
I shall definitely know
The end.

21.

Simplicity
Is and will forever remain
A perfect stranger
To the modern mind.

22.

A purity-life
And
A gratitude-heart
Are immediate neighbours.

23.

The most glorious beginning
Of my miracle-life: I have
Started loving God, my Beloved
Supreme, in His own Way.

24.

God is ready to give me
Another chance.
Alas, am I ready?
Will I ever be ready
To accept it?

25.

Each aspiring life
Is a prolonged and
Extensive Dream
Of God.

26.

My past was completely
Destroyed on the day
I employed my surrendering
Thoughts to help me
Reach my God.

27.

O my vital, do not complain;
You may be totally wrong.
O my mind, do not assert;
You too may be
Totally wrong.

28.

Be not afraid of God,
Be not afraid.
Your sweet reunion
Need not be delayed.

29.

Reveal constantly
What you are: a supremely
Chosen instrument of God.
Conceal powerfully
What you are not:
A giant prince of
Ignorance-dream.

30.

An uninspiring thought,
Short or long, is spiritually
Wrong.
An unaspiring life,
Short or long, is spiritually
Wrong.

31.

My wisdom-flames
Pray to God.
My stupidity-seas
Pray for God.

32.

Self-perfection:
Yes!
Self-annihilation:
No!

33.

I export
Aspiration-flames
From earth to Heaven.
I import
Satisfaction-suns
From Heaven to earth.

34.

Each time
You have a chance,
Hurl your wisdom-lance
At ignorance-tiger.

35.

The divine
Will definitely conquer
The human, the way
The human
Has conquered the animal.

36.

If you accept
Fantasies,
Ecstasy will not
Receive you.

37.

O my mind,
You have talked enough.
Now begin to listen.
I have got a superb teacher
For you.
You will simply
Love your new teacher: heart.

38.

Confusion
Cannot last.
Just change
Your direction.

39.

When told that all human beings
Are by nature ungrateful,
Everybody thinks that
He is an exception.

40.

I see you
As an ordinary man.
You see yourself
As a demigod.
God sees you
As another God.

41.

Do you want to be
The real winner,
Do you?
Then lose to Truth,
Lose!

42.

It is not enough
To love God
In the God-lover.
We must also love God
In the God-hater.

43.

The illumining soul
Uncovers,
And
The aspiring heart
Discovers.

44.

Success
Is an incident.
Progress
Is an experience.

45.

Make your choice:
Do you want to be
The servant of a book
Or
A good student
Of your soul?

46.

God-seekers
Feast
On God's great
Silence.

47.

There is only
One perfect road
And
That road is ahead of
You,
Always ahead of
You.

48.

Only
The God-centred souls
Can spread
Their victory-trophies
At God's Feet.

49.

His mind lives
inside the secret
Sorrow-cave.
His heart lives
Inside the sacred
Sorrow-home.

50.

His life's late-evening discovery:
God's Forgiveness-Power
Has smashed
God's Justice-Tower.
