I love your earthly purity-cry
And I need your Heavenly


O my heart,
Our Lord Beloved Supreme
has told me
That He will supply your
every need
Born and yet unborn.


O my heart,
Do tell me if I am not the
person you want me to be.
I shall always have the time,
And I shall always have the
To perfect myself so that I
can be claimed by you as
your own, very own.


O my heart,
Because you choose to live
My life and I hope to live


O my heart,
Do not allow my
undisciplined vital to
befriend you.
That friendship will be the
greatest waste
Of your unhorizoned


O my heart,
Today you have made me
unimaginably happy
By launching your aspiration-boat
On my life's dedication-river.


O my heart,
Sleeplessly you are teaching me
How to anchor my human love
In God's divine Love.


O my heart,
You expect permanent happiness on earth.
And in every way you deserve it, too.
But alas, alas, alas.
Will it ever happen?
Will you ever be flooded with happiness?
I shall pray and pray and pray to God for you.


O my heart,
Every day you lovingly teach my mind
How to climb up the
mountain of awareness
And every day my soul fondly teaches you
How to fly in the sky of selflessness.


O my heart,
You are desperately trying
to discipline my mind.
Do you not know
That it is as useless
As trying to tame the wind?


O my heart,
Your will is your own
Therefore, I am so proud of you.
Alas, my mind's will is its own


O my heart,
When I am not with you
And when I am not for you
I am forced to move
From unhappiness-death
to fruitlessness-death.


O my heart,
I am exceedingly happy today.
Do you know why?
Today I have completely passed through
The longest dry desert of my doubting mind,
And now I am being blessed
By the beauty of your


O my heart,
I am exceedingly happy
To see every day
New and charming leaves
On your God-revealing life-plant.


O my heart,
Like you I wish to be
a student of divine love.
Like you I shall never want
to finish my schooling.


O my heart,
I am so sorry to have kept you waiting
For my life's perfection-marks
So that you can give me proudly
Your satisfaction-award.


O my heart,
Like you I wish to be
sleeplessly and intimately
personal with God.
O my heart, do be my private


O my heart,
Time and again God has told me
That your part
in His sweet Dream-Play
is extremely significant.
Therefore, my pride in you
knows no bounds.


O my heart,
When I am not with you
I live in yesterday's
When I am with you
I live in tomorrow's


O my heart,
Just because I am for you
I am enjoying the slow,
steady and unerring progress
Of God-revealing and God-manifesting faith
In my entire being.


O my heart,
I am secretly telling you that every day
I plead with my undivine mind
To come and study
at your faith boarding school.
Alas, my mind is nothing other
than shameless unwillingness.


O my heart,
When I soulfully pray to God,
He sends you to me with the message:
"Nothing is too much."
And when I unconditionally meditate on God,
He sends you to me with the message:
"Nothing is too soon."


O my heart,
You are constantly telling me
That my life's gratitude-telegrams
can and will reach God
Sooner than the soonest
From anywhere in the world.


O my heart,
If I had only known
How much you cared for me,
I would not have stayed with
my doubt-poison-mind,
Even for a fleeting second.


O my heart,
You are your mounting aspiration-flames
To reach the highest illumination-heights.
Therefore, I am divinely and supremely
proud of you.
Look at my utterly stupid mind:
It is dying for death-desire-drugs.


O my heart,
You are always ready
with your aspiration-candles.
Alas, will my mind ever be ready
with its inspiration-matches?


O my heart,
When I do not live
in your illumination-province,
A doubt-volcano forces me
to move
From the frustration-town
to the failure-village.


O my heart,
Your daily surrender-gratitude-life
Is saving me
from the undying undercurrent
of expectation.


O my heart,
I am all gratitude to you
For teaching me to say goodbye
To my very, very old partner:


O my heart,
Every day I am learning from you
Two most significant lessons:
A soulful receptivity
and a prayerful readiness
To surrender to God's Will.


O my heart,
How kind of you
to share with me unconditionally
The sweet, sweeter, sweetest taste
of gratitude.


O my heart,
I am sleeplessly grateful to you,
For you have asked me
To call God my Beloved,
My only Beloved Supreme.


O my heart,
I am extremely fond of you
For many divine things you embody,
But especially for the snow-white innocence
Of your childlike smile.


O my heart,
You simply do not know what
negativity is.
Therefore, to my greatest joy,
You are a perfect stranger
To unfriendliness-disaster-crime.


O my heart,
Your tremendous and momentous
Is pleasing me far beyond
your imagination.
And I do hope that my most sincere
Is pleasing you in a small measure.


O my heart,
When I am inside you
Do you know what I deeply enjoy?
I enjoy a sea of silence-delight
That can never be attacked and bitten
By thought-mosquitoes.


O my heart,
Your fondest dream
is constant God-satisfaction.
And my bravest promise
is God-manifestation here and now.


O my heart,
You are asking me to look at
The beauty of your moon-light
And the prosperity of your sun-power.
I am at once all obedience and all ecstasy.


O my heart,
You are my delight-sea within,
You are my delight-mountain without.
Like you, my only oneness friend,
I shall start my day
with a soulful surrender-song
And end my day
with a beautiful gratitude-dance.


O my heart,
Your great and good
Has rescued me countless times
From drowning in a sea
of self-pity-tears.


O my heart,
When I breathe in your fragrance-light,
How easily I surrender to God
My heavy world-resentment-burden.


O my heart,
I am all gratitude to you,
For your breathless willingness
To serve God in God's own Way
Is permeating my entire being.


O my heart,
My superiority-giants
and my inferiority-ghosts
Simply disappear
the moment they see me
Swing with you in your oneness-cradle.


O my heart,
Selfish actions have
imprisoned the world.
You are desperately trying
to liberate the world.
God the Compassion
is crying through you.
I know, someday God the Victory
Will, without fail,
smile through you.


O my heart,
I need no credentials
To arrive at God's Door
Only when I accompany you.


O my heart,
You always get the first preference
When you dial God's
And when you call, unlike other callers,
God Himself answers immediately.


O my heart,
Every day you are feeding me
with God's Nectar-Delight.
I need no more useless God-explanation
from my scholar-friend.
I need no more useless God-understanding
from my philosopher-friend.


O my heart,
Yesterday I saw you
in your aspiration-career.
Today I am seeing you
with a perfection-crown on your head.
And whose perfection-crown?
God's, definitely God's.


O my heart,
It is you who have taught me
How to write every day
Most soulful love-letters to God.
My prayer-life and my meditation-life
From this moment on
Will cheerfully, sleeplessly
and unconditionally
Be at your service.
