Two God-Amusement-Rivals: my Heart-Song-Beauty and my Life-Dance-Fragrance, part 9

Return to the table of contents

801.

Keep your heart
Purer than the purest
If you want to swim
In God's Ecstasy-Sea.

802.

A real renaissance man
Is he
Who awakens the mind
Of humility
And feeds the heart
Of humanity.

803.

I cry with humanity's tears
When I speak to God
On man's behalf.
I smile with Divinity's Smiles
When I speak to mankind
On God's behalf.

804.

Only the life that can smile and dance
With a childlike heart
Can make progress sleeplessly,
Faster than the fastest.

805.

I rely only
On one all-important thing:
God's Compassion-life-preserver.

806.

An unseen Smile of God
Guides my outer life
And illumines my inner life.

807.

My aspiration-heart
Is always available
To be my soul's
God-interpreter.

808.

O my mind,
Do not be fooled
By the world's ever-growing,
Ever-heightening, ever-spreading
Temptation-tree.

809.

God wants me to learn
At every moment
The wisdom of a willingness-mind
And the wisdom of an eagerness-heart.

810.

My gratitude-heart
Is my Lord's Satisfaction-Victory
In and through me.

811.

My soul's smiles
Are infinitely more powerful
Than my heart's deepest meditations.

812.

My heart begged and begged God
To revoke
My mind's self-indulgence-license.
Finally
God listened to my heart's prayer.

813.

God's Compassion
Has completely swallowed
My failure-life of the past.

814.

My mind's enthusiasm
And my heart's eagerness
Are always found
Playing together.

815.

There was a time
When I did not know
To whom I belonged,
But now I know
That I belong only to God,
And God alone.

816.

My heart never disappoints God
Intentionally,
Whereas my mind does it
Not only intentionally
But also repeatedly.

817.

Without a moment's hesitation
My heart is fortified
With God-manifestation-resolution.

818.

O my aspiration-heart,
Do not worry.
The doubting mind will be compelled
To attend its own funeral
Before long.

819.

Dearer than the dearest
To God's Heart
Is my heart
Of cheerful self-giving.

820.

God's foremost treasure on earth
Is my ever-blossoming
Gratitude-heart.

821.

Each human life can be flooded
With God-manifestation-possibilities
If the life has a burning
God-aspiration-cry.

822.

I must become one, inseparably one,
With my heart's all-illumining light
Before I can enjoy the illumination
Of my mind's present ignorance-night.

823.

This world will remain miserable
As long as it cares more
For God the Power
Than for God the Love.

824.

God tells me
With utmost confidence
That I shall, before long,
Smash asunder the pride
Of ignorance-night.

825.

God proudly calls my soul
By its first name:
Illumination.

826.

Only after your God-realisation
Will you be able to know
Whence you came
And whither you go.

827.

I left ignorance far behind
Precisely because
I was able to grow into
My Lord's Compassion-Smile.

828.

The mind's disobedience
Thinks that it is always
Quite safe,
But it is absolutely mistaken.

829.

God has tried again and again
To teach ignorance,
But ignorance is still not ready
To learn anything from God.

830.

I never realised
That my devotion-heart
Is full of unimaginable sweetness.

831.

When God tastes
My disobedience-mind,
He tells me it is always
Extremely, extremely bitter.

832.

I have always known
That my godless mind
Is indeed a most painful experience
For my heart of ceaseless prayer.

833.

My love of obedience
Pleases God
Far beyond my imagination.

834.

God reminds me every day
That it is high time for me
To leave once and for all
My mind's darkness-ignorance-prison-cell.

835.

Never depend on chance,
But depend on
God's unconditional Compassion.

836.

God invites me and my heart
Every day
To dine with Him,
But He never invites
My mind.

837.

I do not know why and how
My vital so often walks along
My mind's tortuous and twisted path.

838.

Today has something
Very special to tell me:
That I shall soon become
A choice instrument of God.

839.

In my life,
Nobody else has counted
The failure-years
That have passed by.
Why should I
Be an exception?

840.

Poor God!
He came, only to find
My willingness-heart
Fast asleep.

841.

God's God-Songs
Echo and re-echo soul-stirringly
Through Eternity's Silence-Heart.

842.

Because of God's unconditional
Compassion for me,
My heart is still pure
And my life is still secure.

843.

My stupidity-flooded
Disobedience-mind
Never wants to believe
That God can be really serious.

844.

My aimlessly wandering mind
Never realises
That there shall come a time
When God's Compassion-Eye
Will force it to stop its wandering.

845.

My constant, sleepless friendship
With ignorance-sea
Has made my Lord's Compassion-Eye
Absolutely miserable.

846.

I am of God
And I am for God
Eternally:
God whispered this to my soul
On the day of its creation.

847.

O unaspiring mind,
If you are always consumed
With envy and hate,
How will you ever enjoy
The beauty and fragrance
Of God's Universal Heart?

848.

When I live
In my aspiration-heart,
I clearly see
That I am infinitely luckier
Than I can ever deserve to be.

849.

My Lord Supreme,
I am praying to You
To make my life
A world-server,
And not to make my mind
A world-saviour.

850.

God's unconditional Grace
Has made my waning aspiration-life
Once more beautiful and fruitful.

851.

Not now, but someday later:
This is the wisdom
Of the unaspiring mind.

852.

O my heart,
Go forward with hope.
O my mind,
Go forward with cheerfulness.
Lo, the destination itself
Is fast approaching you.

853.

God Himself has chosen
The surest way for me,
And that way is the way
Of constant, sleepless and breathless
Self-giving.

854.

No matter how disobedient
My mind is,
My mind knows
That it is not beyond
God's Compassion-flooded Protection.

855.

The mind has willingly become
The slave of ignorance.
The heart has self-givingly become
The child of God.

856.

My love of God
Is the only thing
That will not disappoint me.
Everything else will end
In utter disappointment.

857.

My mind is always eager
For more success.
My heart is always eager
For God-Satisfaction
In God's own Way.

858.

There is no need for me
To search for a better path.
My God-surrender-path
Is, and will always remain,
By far the best for me.

859.

God blessingfully and proudly accepts
Each and every gift
Offered by my heart.

860.

The unwillingness of the mind
Is bitterly and unimaginably
Cold and destructive.

861.

At long last
My division-mind
Has fully surrendered
To my oneness-heart.

862.

I am now
Truly proud of myself,
For I am no longer confined
By my mind's unwillingness.

863.

My life's perfect perfection
Is God's newest
And most inspired Dream.

864.

Everything in me that participates
In my mind's unwillingness-game
Is destined to be
Slowly and unmistakably transformed.

865.

The heart is always saturated
With spirituality.
It is the mind
That vehemently protests.

866.

My Lord, do bless me
With Your
Self-Transcendence-Dream-Life.

867.

The heart has the capacity
To cherish a secret and sacred
God-fulfilling hope-dawn.

868.

If you are seeking God
In books,
You will be disappointed badly.
If you are seeking God
In your heart-garden,
Then your God-search
Is bound to be crowned
With success.

869.

Finally
My mind's God-willingness-door
Is all wide open.

870.

You are misguided
If you want to find
God's Compassion-Eye-Delight
In your mind-directory.
You will never find it there.

871.

You will be fulfilled
Only when you realise
That your constant expectation
Is your worst enemy.

872.

Once you make your life
The unconditional breath of surrender,
Then you become
The Supreme's Victory-Lion-Roar.

873.

The cosmic gods
Give a round of applause
When I completely dissociate myself
From ignorance-hunger.

874.

If you are
A genuine God-seeker
And God-lover,
Then your life must be
A world-server.

875.

God's Ecstasy-Heart
Abides only in the breath
Of the seeker's aspiration-life.

876.

An uncomely thought
Of the mind
Has the capacity
And is the capacity
To eclipse the fully blossomed beauty
Of the heart.

877.

We are such fools!
Why do we waste our precious time
Trying to decipher
Our God-failure-past?

878.

No, not even the unwilling mind
Will be able to resist forever
The magnetic pull of the soul.

879.

Alas, my mind's disobedience
Has completely destroyed
My heart's tiny and beautiful
Enthusiasm-flower.

880.

Alas, even God's Compassion-Eye
Has finally grown tired
Of waiting for me
And my useless mind.

881.

To my surrender-heart,
Everything is sweet, sweeter, sweetest;
Every individual is good, better, best.

882.

The spiritual life
Is not for the faint-hearted.
The spiritual life
Is for supreme hero-soldiers.

883.

Pray soulfully,
Meditate sleeplessly
Every day,
For do you not know
That life is uncertain,
Life is precarious,
And progress is precious?

884.

To please God
In God's own Way
Is the dream-fulfilment
Of a lifetime.

885.

When the mind speaks fearlessly,
That does not mean
That the mind is right.
No, the mind can be
Absolutely wrong
Even when it speaks
With utmost confidence.

886.

Alas, I do not know why
My human mind consciously enjoys
God-eclipsing undivine thoughts.

887.

If you live constantly
Inside your heart,
Then yours will be a life
Sweetened by the embrace
Of your soul's silence-light.

888.

Satisfaction you need?
Then you must have
An unswerving reliance
On God's Compassion-Eye.

889.

If it is a true aspiration-heart,
Then it will always pay attention
Only to God's point of view.

890.

An aspiration-heart
Is always enriched
By a surrender-life.

891.

An unconditional surrender-life
Is the acme
Of perfection-delight.

892.

My devotion-heart
Always tries to feast its eyes
On God's beautiful
And bountiful Feet.

893.

Only in the heart,
And not in the mind,
Can I enjoy the Fragrance-Delight
Of God's Heart.

894.

True, there are teeming problems
In our lives,
But God-obedience is clearly
The only answer.

895.

God does not want me to be
A paragon of virtue.
He wants me only to be
A faithful child of His.

896.

The satisfaction of my heart
Is the fulfilment
Of God's long-cherished Dream.

897.

Anything in me that is not ready
To obey God happily
Is doomed to perpetual failure.

898.

Because of my constant
Love of God-obedience,
God is taking me more and more
Into His Confidence-Heart.

899.

God claps His Hands
And roars with laughter
When I say
That even my mind is ready
To follow Him implicitly.

900.

I am so divinely proud of myself
For having a soul-loving heart
And a heart-loving mind.
