Power and love

Return to the table of contents

1.

Power conquers.
Love wins.

2.

Power devours.
Love feeds.

3.

Power says to me,
"Come here!"

Love says to me,
"Let us be together,
Always together."

4.

Power says to me,
"Go away!"

Love says to me,
"We are our Eternity's oneness."

5.

Power does not know
What it is doing
And
Why it is doing.

Love knows
What it is doing
And
Why it is doing.

6.

Power is superiority's head.
Love is equality's heart.

7.

Power and truth
Are often strangers
To each other.

Love and truth
Are two mutual
Admirers and supporters.

8.

The hands of
Power
Are often destructive.

The hands of
Love
Are always creative.

9.

Power's blindness
Power is rarely aware of.

Love's oneness
Love is always conscious of.

10.

Power, name and fame
Together march.
Destination: nowhere.

Love, oneness and fulness
Together fly.
Destination: Heaven's smile-blossoms.

11.

Power is
Heaviness-haughtiness-mind.

Love is
Sweetness-fondness-heart.

12.

Power is
Duty-emptiness.

Love is
Duty-willingness.

13.

Power is narrow.
Power is shallow.
Power is callous.

Love is auspicious.
Love is gracious.
Love is precious.

14.

Power does not think;
Therefore, it sinks.

Love sings God's Songs;
Therefore, it is a God-bliss-singer.

15.

Power is
Self-aggrandisement.

Love is
God-enlightenment.

16.

Ultimately,
Power and frustration
Are compelled to walk along
The destruction-road.

Eternally,
Love and fulfilment
Are favoured by God Himself
To walk along
The satisfaction-road.

17.

Power tries to
Conceal its weakness.

Love spontaneously not only
Reveals its strength,
But also God's Power.

18.

Power used;
Gone, completely gone.

Love used;
Expands, multiplies.

19.

Power keeps God's Grace
At a distance.

Love not only values
But also treasures
Sleeplessly and breathlessly
God's Grace.

20.

Power
Does not want to carry anybody
But wants to be carried
By the whole world.

Love
Carries each and every human being
From the cradle to the grave.

21.

When the world suffers,
Power does not shed
Even a single tear.

When the world suffers,
Love becomes
A sea of tears.

22.

Power is
Complicated-mind's wild adventure.

Love is
Simple-heart's cheerful journey.

23.

There is not a single day
That power does not give trouble
To poor God.

There is not a single day
That love does not give joy
To its Beloved Supreme.

24.

When power wants to speak to God,
God tells power,
"I do not have much time,
Tell Me everything in a nutshell."

When love wants to speak to God,
God tells love,
"Since Eternity is at My disposal,
I am eager to hear from you in detail."

25.

Power's promises
Can never be taken seriously.

Love's promises
Are doubtless fulfilments.

26.

Power takes a tremendous start,
But never wins the inner race.

Love, no matter how it starts,
Always wins the race.

27.

The stupidity of power
Wants to interview God.

The wisdom of love
Is always eager to pursue God.

28.

Unfortunately,
The very nature of outer power
Works unwisely, hurtfully
And maliciously.

Fortunately,
The very nature of inner love
Works lovingly, graciously
And self-givingly.

29.

When power conducts me,
I see God's Feet nowhere.

When love leads me,
I see God's Feet everywhere.

30.

Power quenches the thirst
Of my mind's eye.

Love feeds the hunger
Of my life's heart.

31.

Because of power's supremacy,
Our world is heavy
With evening sighs.

Because of love's intimacy,
Our world is light
With morning songs.

32.

Power misused is as useless
As a handful of ashes.

Love properly used is as beautiful
And useful
As the starlit sky.

33.

Power is
Man's sweet dream-slayer.

Love is
Man's sweet dream-fulfiller.

34.

Every day
Power brings embarrassments to God.

Every day
Love brings refreshments to God.

35.

Power does not know
What self-offering is.

Love's very existence
Is founded upon self-offering.

36.

Power has no power to change
The darkness of the world.

Love hurls not only defiance
At the darkness of the world,
But is absolutely certain
In transforming
World-darkness into world-light.

37.

Power flies to meet
With power's allies: super-powers.

Love travels to meet
With love's only Friend: God.

38.

Power's Bible
Is for God's Justice-unbelievers.

Love's Gospel
Is for God's Justice-believers,
God's Compassion-dreamers
And for
God's Forgiveness-treasurers.

39.

Power is
A mind-sophisticated frown.

Love is
A God-intoxicated smile.

40.

Power lives inside
Its own volcano-laughter.

Love lives inside
God's sunshine-Smile.

41.

Each new beginning of power
Is world-punishment.

Each new beginning of love
Is world-enlightenment.

42.

Power's palace
Has no God-entry.

Love's cottage
Has only a God-entrance all around.

43.

Power dies
In power's own hands.

Love lives
At God's own Feet.

44.

Power:
Who are you?

Love:
You I am.

45.

God's Justice
Demands power's
Immediate presence.

God's Delight
Blessingfully offers love
Its immediate embrace.
