From Heaven
He came into the world
With an unconscious headache.

From earth
He will return to Heaven
With a conscious fever.

My devotion is sweet
When I touch your beauty's feet.

My devotion is sweeter
When I feel your beauty's eyes.

My devotion is sweetest
When I clasp your beauty's heart.

3. Grace

I do not know what God's Grace looks like.
I do not know what God's Face looks like.
But I do know that my God's Grace
Is all for me,
That my God's Face
Is all within me.

4. Sincerity

God told me that it was my insincerity
That spoke when I said that
I had not seen the Face of God
And had not felt the Love of God.

God told me that it was my sincerity
That spoke when I said that
God-realisation I have,
God-revelation I am working on,
God-manifestation I badly need.

Concentrate
To lengthen your consciousness-realm.

Meditate
To heighten your consciousness-sky.

To deepen your consciousness-sea.

"Light,
Where are you?

Who are you?"

Where am I?
I am in your revelation-smile.

I am your earth-teacher and Heaven-friend.
Who am I?
I am your Eternity's soul
And
I am your Infinity's goal.

7. Beauty and lustre

God's Beauty tells me that my outer world
Is pure.
God's Lustre tells me that my inner world
Is sweet.

My outer world's beauty tells God

And
Smile with Heaven's soul.

9. Love

In the outer world
Love is duty's might.
In the inner world
Love is duty's height.
In God's world
Love is God's unhorizoned Vision,
God's growing and glowing Reality.

10. Inner poise

God gave him inner poise
But now he has replaced it
By outer voice.
In the future,
God will replace his outer voice
By His yet unknown Choice.

11. Revelation

When you are in the body-life
You conceal and conceal.
When you are in the soul-life
You reveal and reveal,
You fulfil and transcend
And transcend and fulfil.

12. Inner surety

Inner surety
God's fulfilling Promise in me,
God's glowing Reality in me,
My own inner Immortality for God.

13. Progress

"My Lord, have I made any progress in my
Inner life and my outer life?"
Yes, My child, you have made progress
in both
Your inner life and your outer life.
I see the progress of your inner life
In the increasing depth
Of your silence-life.
I see the progress of your outer life
In the expanding smile
Of your sound-revelation.

14. Swift progress

Swift is your progress
When you discover your soul's colour.
Swifter is your progress
When you discover your soul's mission
on earth.
Swiftest is your progress
When you discover that your soul
Is your earth-child and Heaven-Father.

15. Satisfaction

My mind was satisfied
When it saw the satisfaction-seed.

My heart was satisfied
When it became the satisfaction-tree.

My soul was satisfied
When it ate the satisfaction-fruit.

I was satisfied
When I became the surrender-flower
For God-satisfaction.

16. What is life?

What is life?
Body's life is possession-smile.
Vital's life is destruction-frown.
Mind's life is suspicion-might.
Heart's life is dedication-light.

17. Illumination

I had my God-illumination
In yesterday's ignorance-night.
I have my psychic illumination
In today's ignorance-pride.
I shall have my mental illumination
In tomorrow's ignorance-failure.

18. Trials

Trials and tribulations are for those
Who have forgotten
the might of surrender divine.
Success and progress are for those
Who claim and treasure God's Love-experience on earth
And God's Light-experience in Heaven
As their own, very own.

19. Growth

Cry if you want to see your inner growth.
Smile if you want to see your outer growth.
Dance before your failure-night
And your success day;
You will see the growth
Of the Absolute Supreme.

20. God-Perfection

Involution is God-Perfection
In inconscience-night.
Evolution is God-Perfection
In man's Heaven-bound flight.

21. Insecurity

Insecurity is not
My helplessness-beauty.
Insecurity is
My stupidity-sterility.
Insecurity is
My God's undying sigh.

22. Each birthday

Each birthday
Of an unaspiring man
Is the destruction-dance of death.

Each birthday
Of an aspiring man
Is the ever-increasing Satisfaction-Smile of God
In His Vision's self-transcendence height.

23. Sanctity

Sanctity, sanctity,
You are my darkening body's necessity.
Sanctity, sanctity,
You are my blossoming soul's divinity.
You are my perfecting God's Reality.

24. Death, will you come to me?

Death, if I don't speak to God
Will you come to me?
"No!"

Death, if I don't love God
Will you come to me?
"No!"

Death, if I feel a sincere need for you
Will you come to me?
"No!"

Then when will you come to me?
"I shall come to you
Only when God asks me to feed you,
Embrace you and immortalise you."

25. Him I worship

Him I worship
Because he told me
That I need God-Love.
Him I worship
Because he told me
That God does need me
Sleeplessly,
Compassionately
And
Unconditionally.

26. I am afraid of beauty

I am afraid of earth-beauty.
It is nothing but ugliness.

I am afraid of Heaven-beauty
It seems it is all-devouring power.

I am afraid of God-Beauty.
It tells me that it will eclipse
My long-treasured individuality.

27. Do you want to bind your consciousness?

Do you want to bind your consciousness?
Easy, just feed your jealousy-sister.
Do you want to blind your consciousness?
Easy, just feed your impurity-brother.

Do you want to liberate
your consciousness?
Easy, just feed your Compassion-mother.
Do you want to immortalise
your consciousness?
Easy, just feed your Salvation-father.

28. Compassion

Compassion, compassion.
My earth-compassion
Feeds my sacrifice-flames.

Compassion, compassion.
My Heaven-compassion
Feeds my satisfaction-sun.

Compassion, compassion.
My God-Compassion
Feeds my perfection-goal.

29. The silence-song of self-transcendence

I love you
Not because you are exceptionally great.
I love you
Not because you are exceptionally good.
I love you
Because you constantly sing
The silence-song of self-transcendence.

30. You gave me only one heart

Lord, You gave me only one heart.
I use it constantly
Only for You.
How then can You ask me
To use it for Your creation as well?
Lord, either give me one more heart,
One totally separate heart
To love Your creation with,
Or
Allow me to do
what I have always been doing
Cheerfully and devotedly,
Although You are so nasty to me at times.

31. A big perhaps

"I really do not know
Why I love you still.
I really do not know
Why I need you still."

My child, I do not know either.
A big perhaps:
In the inner world
We love each other unreservedly.
A bigger perhaps:
In the outer world
We need each other constantly.

32. A deliberate lie

At last I have realised
That I am telling a deliberate lie
When I say that I really and truly love God.
If I really and truly loved God,
I could not have blamed
His vast body, creation,
Constantly and bluntly.

33. Why am I so fond of you?

"Lord, is it because You are great
That I am so fond of You?
Lord, is it because You are good
That I am so fond of You?"

No, your reasons are incorrect.
You are fond of Me for another reason.
You are fond of Me
Because in Me you see I
Your own fulfilled capacity.

34. Lord, open your Eyes

"Lord, You always ask me
To keep my eyes open.
How is it that You never
Keep Your Eyes open?
Just open Your Eyes and see
How I am suffering.
I really want to die.
Your world does not want me,
Your world does not need me.
It only knows how to torture me
Mercilessly and constantly."
My child, world-despair has possessed you,
But I always claim you
As my Eternity's own.

35. My body tells You

My body tells You, Lord
Not to scold me.
My body feels that I need
A little more rest.
I tell You, Lord,
That if I am allowed
To get up at my own time
I shall love You,
I shall serve You,
I shall even glorify You.

36. Scolding is not a healthy experience

My mind tells You, Lord,
To scold me in private
If You really have to.
I need not tell You, Lord,
That scolding is not a healthy experience
For the one who scolds
Nor for the one who is being scolded.

37. Scolding does no good

My vital tells You, Lord,
Not to scold me.
I know I always do something wrong,
But when You scold me
It does me no good.
After all, who has changed his life
By being scolded?
No one!
Therefore, love me, Lord,
Love me even more,
Especially when You are tempted
to scold me.

38. My heart tells You to scold me

My heart tells You, Lord,
To scold me when I do anything wrong.
What both of us want from my life
Is perfection-delight;
Therefore, Lord, scold me.
I deserve it; I need it.
My sense of perfection
Badly needs it.

39. His envy-life

His envy-life never dies!
There was a time
When he envied the world-champion athletes.
There was a time
When he envied the world-philosophers
and saints.
And now whom does he envy?
He envies his soul in its purest beauty.
He envies his God in His absolute Perfection.

40. Reminders

Each flower reminds me
Of what I can eventually become.
Each fruit reminds me
Of what I eternally am.

41. Friend

Yesterday I desired
To be earth's friend.
I knew I deserved it.

Today I am desiring
To be Heaven's friend.
I think I deserve it.

Tomorrow I shall prove
To be my own friend,
My real friend.
I hope I deserve it.

42. Unneeded

Despair, I do not need you.
You are too weak.
Sadness, I do not need you.
You are long-dead.

43. Earth-necessity, Heaven-reality

Achieve and become:
Indeed, this is the earth-necessity.
Become and achieve:
Indeed, this is the Heaven-reality.

44. Sinners

Earth, you have sinned
By hiding my God-realisation.

Heaven, you have sinned
By ignoring my God-realisation.

God, you have sinned
By not allowing me
To equal You.

45. Two pure eyes

Two pure eyes:
One eye silently tells me
I am of God's Eternity.
Another eye loudly tells me
I am for God's Infinity.

46. Offerings

A sunless day offers me
Heaven's helpless tears.
A lifeless night offers me
Earth's hopeless hopes.

47. Enjoying God-love

He enjoyed God-love
To ascend and transcend.

He enjoys God-love
To build and shelter.

He shall enjoy God-love
To serve humanity's
Heart-pangs
And Divinity's
Soul-smile.

48. When I judged

When I judged God,
God smiled at me.

When I judged Heaven,
Heaven warned me.

When I judged earth,
Earth devoured me.

49. Silence I need

Earth-silence I need
To see the inner man in me.
Heaven-silence I need
To love the inner man in me.
God-silence I need
To become the inner man in me.

50. For my sake

Earth, for God's sake, ascend.
Heaven, for God's sake, descend.
God, for my sake, condescend
To give earth the needed capacity
And Heaven the needed responsibility.
