Joy is another name for progress.
The inner light illumines darkness. The outer light chases darkness.
Each gratitude-breath of our heart gives God tremendous joy.
Aspiration is a climbing cry of our God-loving heart.
For a real God-seeker and God-lover, there is only one Victory, and that Victory is to claim God’s entire Creation as one’s very own, very own.
Soulfulness, newness, oneness and fulness: these are the most significant branches of our life’s God-aspiration and God-dedication-tree.
Devotion intensifies our love of God much faster than anything else.
Every day, every hour, every minute, every second, a sincere seeker must try to increase his love of God.
To surrender to God’s Will at every moment is the only right thing that a seeker must practise to please God in His own Way.
If we wish to enter into God’s Heart-Room, then sincerity is of paramount importance.
Enthusiasm of the mind has a very short breath, but enthusiasm in the heart lasts long, very, very long. Enthusiasm is success and progress at every moment.
If there is abundant purity in the mind, in the vital and in the body, then the seeker can easily make the fastest progress in the spiritual life.
We can claim God to be our All only if we can remain all the time in our hearts.
We can have peace only after we have placed everything that we claim to be ours at God’s Feet.
If we have a constant spirituality-hunger, then we can enjoy divinity-meal.
Self-giving seekers are God’s most favourite children.
If we have adamantine determination, then we can realise God much faster than otherwise.
Eagerness shortens the road to our destination.
A soulfulness-heart receives from God His Heart’s Fulness-Smile.
The more we can have humility in our life, the sooner God knocks at our heart-door.
Our faith in God is not to become another Alexander the Great. Our faith in God is to become God’s fondest children.
God becomes extremely proud of us only when we pray to God to bless us with His infinite Compassion so that we can have a life of absolute perfection to please God in His own Way.
We must not allow the mind to tell us what the truth is. We must only ask our heart to tell us what the truth is because our heart only lives in the Heart of God’s own Truth.
A forgiveness-heart is surrounded by all the happiness of the world.
