A chance, at least.

The absence of joy
Is the presence of our love for ourselves only.

144. I have two worlds

I have two worlds:
Human and divine.

And it always wants to remain small.
My divine world is larger than the largest,
And yet it always longs
For its self-enlargement.

Unlike my human friends,
My poor friend God has completely
Run out of His Advice-drops.
What now He has

A new world.

Do not let them worry you.
After all,
Fear is a tiny ball,

You easily can.
You can stop swimming in the impurity-pond;
Immediately you can.

Any other weapon
To conquer my frustration-night.
My dedication-weapon
Is enough.

I do not need
Any other path
To reach my realisation-goal.
My meditation-path of surrender-light
Is more than enough.

168. The beginning and the end

The end is important,
And not the beginning.
Look at your totally transformed
Vital life.

The beginning is as important
As the end.
Look at your soul-promise
To Mother Earth
For God-manifestation.

But God does.
He always feels sorry for me.

In each perfection-flame!

To teach the world constantly
And
Unconditionally?
Why should I?
Why should I?

I do not worry about you."
