A bird of the East
Told me that God is beautiful
And that God loves singing.
I believed the bird.
I am now trying to be beautiful myself
In order to sing with God.

In order to dance with God.

11. There we are free

In the heart of gratitude-sky
My body, my soul and I are free.
My body freely serves God.
My soul freely manifests God.
I freely enjoy God.

12. We are unkind

The clouds are simply unkind
When they cover the face
Of the beautiful moon.

I am mercilessly unkind
When I ridicule the suffering world's
Bleeding swoon.

13. Complainers

Who complained?
The hungry animal in me.
Who complains?
The ugly human in me.
Who will complain?
The desperate divine in me.

14. Inner progress

My Lord is satisfied
With my inner progress,
But I am not.
My Lord is satisfied
With my outer success,
But I am not.

Why?
Why?

I am not satisfied
Because
I am still unkind to my Lord.
I have not given Him
An opportunity to rest,
Which He so rightly deserves.

15. Renunciation

Earth, I have renounced Heaven
Only to love you.
Heaven, I have renounced earth
Only to satisfy you.
I have renounced myself
Only to serve God.
Alas,
It seems I have not pleased
Any of them.
Alas,
Is it my poor fate
Or
Is it God's wise Choice?

16. Gratitude

He covered the length and breadth
Of the world
To see the face of gratitude.
What he saw
Everywhere
Was ingratitude-trees.

17. Our needs

I need patience-light.
You need tranquility-height.
I need forgiveness-might.
You need perfection-white.

18. Inner vision

My inner vision tells me
That I am nearer than the nearest
To my Lord Supreme.

My outer sight tells me
That I am farther than the farthest
From my Lord Supreme.

Whom to believe?

If I believe my inner vision,
Pride tortures my heart.
If I believe my outer sight,
Frustration tortures my mind.

Therefore
I am not going to believe either.

19. Hope

Sweet is my hope.
Pure is the life of my hope.

With my sweet hope
I try to reach the higher worlds.
With my pure hope
I try to fathom my inner worlds.

In neither way do I succeed.
I fail,
I miserably fail.

23. Selflessness

I had a dream.
In my dream
I became selflessness.
My dream disappeared
And
I became reality-story.
In my reality-story
I discovered myself
As the perfect perfection of
Earth-possessiveness,
Heaven-possessiveness,
God-possessiveness,
And
Self-possessiveness.

24. Surrender

To earth
I have surrendered my wisdom
So that earth-heart can be flooded
With my wisdom-light.

To Heaven
I have surrendered my ignorance-night
So that Heaven can claim me
And Heaven can utilise me
As its very own.

I have surrendered my 'I-ness';
Therefore
God declares
Not only with His infinite Bounty,
But with His utmost Sincerity,
That I am another God.

Perfection-plant grows.

In Heaven

To see the Face of God.

Try and cry and cry and try
To see the face of one single real man.

27. Illumination

Earth-illumination is another name
For earth-transformation.

He answered
Millions and millions of questions,
Earthly questions
And
Heavenly questions.

He was asked
What compassion was.
He remained silent,
For compassion is
God-property
And
God-reality.

Your inner beauty
Lies in your surrendering to God,
Your Beloved Supreme,
All that you are:
Gratitude-sea.

For suffering earth-life
And
Bleeding world-heart.

With my unlit and unconscious
Human concern
I break God's cosmic Rhythm
And ruin His cosmic Game.

Divine Concern
I not only serve God in His cosmic Game
But also add beauty and satisfaction
To His cosmic Game.

Earth follows Heaven;
Therefore
Earth is entitled to be happy.

Heaven follows earth;
Therefore
Heaven is entitled to be brave.

Mind-seclusion
Is not heart-conclusion.
Heart-conclusion
Is life's realisation
And
God's Victory-Satisfaction.

Unpleasant truth exposed:
You are reviled.
Unpleasant truth concealed:
You are revered.
Therefore
Be wise.
Act not like a first-class fool.

For the age in his face.

When I saw
Ages in his face
I danced and danced
Because
It was I who had helped him
And made him the possessor of ages.

O earth,
Do you have anything else
Save and except
Your blind God?

O Heaven,
Do you have anything else
Save and except
Your callous indifference?

O God,
Do You have anything else
Save and except
Your unknowable Sacrifice-Life?

Yours is the body
That sleeps.

Yours is the vital
That strikes.

Yours is the mind
That envies.

Yours is the heart
That bears.

Yours is the soul
That dreams.

Yours is the God
Who has a quenchless Thirst.

Tears that reveal your heart
Thrill God's Heart,
For that is the only time
When God can make you feel
That you are His own,
Very own.

My God and a lover?
No difference,
Absolutely none.

Here on earth
I had to choose either
The soul or material wealth.
I chose the soul.

There in Heaven
I had to choose either
God-manifestation on earth
Or
God-enjoyment in Heaven.
I chose God-manifestation on earth.

49. Always be busy

Always be busy.
Earth's indolence
Will surrender to you;
Heaven's superiority
Will surrender to you.

50. Be pure

Are you not sure
That God is everywhere?
Then just do one thing:
Try to be pure.
If you become pure,
Then you will see
That it is not just God
Who is everywhere
But
You, too, are everywhere.
Be pure, like God.
Your existence-light
Shall shine everywhere.
