Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 16

Return to the table of contents

15001

My Lord,
Do show me
The secret and sacred way
To Your Heart-Door.

15002

My Lord,
You are Your Kindness
And I am my eagerness.
Lo, both of us now are together
Once again.

15003

I am determined to fly
To the zenith heights
Of my love, devotion
And surrender.

15004

When I am my outstretched arms,
God opens His Heart-Door
Immediately.

15005

When I surrender my life
To God completely,
I enjoy the exquisite fragrance
Of my lotus-heart.

15006

God's Compassion-Eye
Asks our aspiration-heart
To align itself
With the beautiful angels.

15007

My satisfaction-heart
Is the primary source
Of God's Delight.

15008

When I adore my God sincerely,
I give Him
A little peace-enjoyment.

15009

True happiness is
In preparing selflessness
And
In destroying selfishness.

15010

The aspiration-cries
Of my heart
Are far beyond
My mind's small compass.

15011

Alas, I have learned
Many things in life
Save and except pleasing God
At all times in His own Way.

15012

An impurity-mind
Atrophies the God-aspiration-
Dedication-manifestation-muscles.

15013

God tells me that
If I really need peace of mind
And do not just want it,
Then He will without fail
Give it to me.

15014

God is absolutely
The best supporter
And admirer
Of my eagerness-heart.

15015

No matter what
The consequences will be,
I shall no longer surrender
To dauntless ignorance-night.

15016

Do you really need God?
Then claim Him
Here and now.

15017

He who hesitates to sound
God's Victory-Trumpet
Will definitely be
A total failure.

15018

My mind,
You can do so many things.
Can you not add one thing more?
Just wish everyone happiness.

15019

What you need is patience,
What you need is perseverance
To satisfy God
In every human being.

15020

My Lord Supreme,
If You really love me,
Then do scold me frequently
For my perfection.

15021

To solve all our life's problems
There is only one way:
God-satisfaction in God's own Way.

15022

May my aspiration-heart
And dedication-life
Together travel
The whole length of Eternity's Road.

15023

No reasoning mind has ever reached
Or will ever reach
The Lord's Feet.

15024

Everything needs
A special preparation.
But God-satisfaction
Needs no such preparation.

15025

God loves me.
My heart tells me that
This is more than sufficient.

15026

When I am in my mind,
I become
The world-greed-possession.

15027

When I am in my heart,
I become
The God-need-aspiration.

15028

O my mind,
Be courageous!
You certainly can follow
God's Will.

15029

May my mind's purity
And my heart's sincerity
Take me once more
To the Compassion-flooded Feet
Of my Lord Supreme.

15030

May my God-crying heart
Every day
Increase its hunger.

15031

Not frequently but ceaselessly
I must run
To touch the Feet
Of my Lord Supreme.

15032

To make our aspiration-heart
And dedication-life
Richer and sweeter,
What we need is a sweet Smile
From our Lord Supreme.

15033

Surrender means the immediacy
Of the present moment
And not the remoteness
Of tomorrow.

15034

Each God-loving breath
Rapidly increases
Our heart's delight.

15035

Each time my soul tries
To feed my mind
With its illumining thoughts,
My mind rejects them summarily.

15036

Whatever we call desire
At this moment,
Next moment we must call
That very thing despair.

15037

O my pride-mind,
When are you going to stop
Blowing your trumpet?

15038

If anybody thinks
That he has a monopoly
On God,
He is indeed a rank fool.

15039

The mind's supremacy-hunger
Is bound to harvest
Dire disappointments.

15040

O my mind,
Are you not ashamed of being late
For all your God-appointments?

15041

No matter how hard I try,
Alas, my old insecurity-jealousy-life
Still haunts me.

15042

Aspire, my mind, aspire.
You do not have to drown
In loneliness-tears.

15043

May each human life
Be the embodiment
Of God-Satisfaction.

15044

I want to discover the road
With a complete
God-Satisfaction-destination.

15045

My dedication-life-river
Does not allow anything
To remain stagnant
In my life.

15046

I have transformed
My attachment-failure-mind
Into my detachment-success-heart.

15047

I have many homes,
But by far the best
Is my God's
Compassion-Protection-Eye.

15048

All our differences disappear
In the twinkling of an eye
When we live in the heart
And for God alone.

15049

My Lord Supreme asks me
To celebrate
My freedom of choice
At every hour, every minute
And every second.

15050

There was a time when I prayed
For God to open my heart
To see Him and know Him,
But now I pray to God
Only to please Him
Sleeplessly and breathlessly.

15051

May my God-longing
Hasten
My Heavenward journey.

15052

I have two strings
To my God-manifestation-bow:
Soulfulness and eagerness.

15053

No good can forever remain
Unattainable
If aspiration-flames
Are constantly climbing.

15054

To please God in His own Way,
Every day I must serve Him
In my fellow seekers.

15055

O my heart,
Do not give way to despair.
It does not become you.

15056

The God-realisation-search
Is at once
Birthless and deathless.

15057

If you do not want to lose
The blissful touch
Of your Master's feet,
Then grow your life
In the Breath of silence.

15058

My Supreme,
I beg of You
To show me the way
To immediately dry
All Your Tears.

15059

My Lord,
Do not cry any more.
Allow me to console You
With my gratitude-heart-smiles.

15060

I must not interfere
With God's Will.
He has every right to have
His own Time.

15061

The difference between my prayer
And my meditation is this:
Unlike my meditation,
My prayer expects
God-attention.

15062

An unconditional surrender
Is a must
For every God-lover.

15063

My life solely belongs
To God-surrender-society.

15064

We do not have to greet anybody,
As long as we see God
Greeting Himself
In every human heart.

15065

A deep meditation-silence
Has a nectar-voice.

15066

God feeds our aspiration-hunger
Sumptuously
When we are all attention
To His Needs,
Inner and outer.

15067

The human in me
Is deeply attached
To God's Heart.

15068

The divine in me
Is deeply attached
To God's Feet.

15069

God immediately dances
When He sees me ringing
My devotion-heart-temple-bell.

15070

No more shall I permit my mind
To remain a member
Of the God-non-cooperation club.

15071

Only a God-seer-heart
Can be
A true peace-pioneer.

15072

My God-appointments
I always mark
On my gratitude-heart-calendar.

15073

My ego means
Nothing other than
Limitation-bondage.

15074

My love means
An unlimited expanse.

15075

Alas, my heart-temple is empty:
The God-Throne
Is still missing.

15076

I do not want
A dictatorship-mind.

15077

I do not want
A leadership-heart.

15078

I want only
A God-worship-life.

15079

A God-loving note
Never goes flat.

15080

My God-dreaming heart
Is
My God-pleasing life.

15081

Out of His infinite Compassion,
My Lord Himself
Has declared His Sovereignty
Over my ignorance-life-soil.

15082

When my life is in
Lethargy-world,
It desires the easiest path.

15083

When I am in
My dynamism-vital,
I long for the road only,
No matter how long it is.

15084

The mind's desire-world
Rightly deserves
Resistance.

15085

A sincere God-acceptance
Is the burial
Of ceaseless suffering.

15086

A true God-searching mind
Can easily storm
The inner doubt-citadel.

15087

The unaspiring mind's master
Is
The God-unwillingness-life.

15088

My aspiration is not only electrified
But also intensified
By my Master's severe scoldings.

15089

My heart thinks and feels
That it is its proudest privilege
To bring my God-disobedience-mind
To God.

15090

A gratitude-heart
Is the fountain
Of world-peace-prayers.

15091

May I dig deep
In my heart-awakening-soil.

15092

My soul is asking
My stupid mind
How long it is going to keep
My Lord Supreme locked out.

15093

A world-possession-life
Thrilled
My mind.

15094

A world-oneness-heart
Is thrilling
My entire earth-existence.

15095

Alas, my heart-tears
Are invisible,
Whereas God's Smiles
Are fully visible.

15096

Silence is always
Adequate;
Words are always
Too much.

15097

You are a fool if you think
That you can express
Your love to humanity
From Above.

15098

Nobody forced us
To be locked up
Inside ourselves.
It is our own
Self-styled choice.

15099

O my Lord,
My hope I do not want
With me
But always in Thee.

15100

It is an impossible task
To arrive at
The expectation-goal.

15101

God is beautiful everywhere,
But He is most beautiful
Inside an aspiring heart.

15102

My Lord,
Do give me the capacity
To burst with eagerness
At every moment
To please You.

15103

God whispers to me:
"My child, do anything
You want to.
My Love for you is infinite
And ever-increasing."

15104

My Lord, up until now
I have shocked You
With my mind's bad qualities.
From today on
I shall surprise You
With my heart's good qualities.

15105

I never thought
That my God-searching mind
Could be so sweet, pure
And adorable.

15106

There is only one thing
That can satisfy God,
And that is
My unconditional surrender.

15107

God touches and blesses
Every day
All my heart-dreams.

15108

Those who take the inner plunge
Will alone be able to please God
In His own Way.

15109

My mind is surprised to see
How fluently my heart
Can speak to God.

15110

To see my Lord smiling
Is the only thing
That I need in my life.

15111

Frustration will always
Loom large
Until I have established
My utter cooperation
With God's Will.

15112

The best way to really please God
Is to offer Him
My gratitude-heart-blossom.

15113

An eager enthusiasm
Has no equal
In our aspiration-life.

15114

Finally I have come to learn
That what I need is
A God-excitement-vital,
A God-enlightenment-mind
And
A God-fulfilment-heart.

15115

We must invoke God's Will
If we want to be
The conquerors
Of our bondage-life.

15116

God is asking
My heart's devotedness
To smile more
And ever more.

15117

To smile at others
Is not a difficult
Or expensive thing.
Alas, yet we are always
Unwilling.

15118

Do not ask God
To show you His Face
But to bless you
With His Grace.

15119

O my Lord Absolute Supreme,
I am telling Your Will
That I am now
All eagerness-readiness.

15120

May I learn most devotedly
Every morning
The God-lessons the planet sun
Blessingfully offers me.

15121

My Lord, if You really want
My nature's transformation,
Then do bless me every day
With Your Power-flooded
Scoldings.

15122

This life we must take
As preparation
For a higher life.

15123

My spirituality-heart
Shall always remain
The continuation
Of this moment.

15124

Mine is the surrender
That loves to stay tuned
To God's infinite Compassion.

15125

O negative thoughts of my mind,
Either hide from me
Or I shall sink you!

15126

If he is a real Master,
Then he will always
Turn you back
To your own divinity.

15127

With our detachment-mind
We can easily become
A God-surrendered life.

15128

The real power
In any human life
Depends upon
Our God-invocation-choice.

15129

You are a fool if you think
That by keeping your mind
Separate from others,
You will feel special.
No, no!
You will feel special
Only when you become
A world-oneness-heart-singer.

15130

The human in me
Loves to feed constantly
The doubting mind.

15131

The divine in me
Loves to feed sleeplessly
My God-surrender-heart.

15132

To think of God,
To pray to God,
To meditate on God
And to surrender my life to God
Has always been
My early morning homework.

15133

My Inner Pilot always expects me
To remain fully self-disciplined
In my outer activities.

15134

The inner shrine
Is always proud of
The outer temple.

15135

May my heart-buds
Burst
Into my life-blooms.

15136

The strength
Of oneness-length
Is immeasurable.

15137

Each seeker must develop
The capacity
To consign his desire-life
To the all-devouring flames.

15138

The full expansion
Of my gratitude-heart
Is my supreme achievement
Of this moment.

15139

The fastest spiritual progress
Depends on the increase
Of my heart-intensity.

15140

My soul is proud of me
Because I am now affiliated
Only with my Lord's Compassion-Eye.

15141

Where there is purity,
There is inexhaustible
Energy.

15142

From everything that you say,
Everything that you do
And everything that you see
In your life,
Just ask yourself one question:
"Am I deriving any
Spiritual benefit?"

15143

We do not know
And we do not have to know
When God will come and knock
At our heart-door.
We have only to prepare ourselves
With our intense aspiration
To receive Him.

15144

The sooner you can withdraw
Your attention
From undivine, unaspiring things,
The better for you.

15145

Inside a sacred mantra-incantation
There is always
A revealing power.

15146

If your prayer is extremely pure
And extremely intense,
Then inside your prayer you will see
The result of your prayer.

15147

Your intense prayer itself
Will show you
Whether your prayer
Will be fulfilled by God
Or not.

15148

Just because the Hour has not yet come
For God to fulfil your prayer,
Do not give up praying.
Continue, continue, continue!
God's choice Hour
Is bound to strike eventually.

15149

The divine forces
Are always watching us,
To see whether
We do good things
Or not.

15150

Inner nectar will be available
Only when
Aspiration is intense.

15151

If you sincerely cry
For humanity's improvement,
Then your goodness
Will be manifested
As greatness.

15152

Let us try not
To conquer the world,
But with our oneness-power
Let us become
What God wants us to become.

15153

Look only straight ahead.
What more do you need,
As long as God is inside your heart
And you are inside God's Heart?

15154

Eagerness
Is something that floods
Our entire being.

15155

Make your whole life
A garland of beauty,
A garland of purity,
A garland of joy
And
A garland of luminosity
And place it at the Feet
Of your Lord Beloved Supreme.

15156

Life should always be
With a capital "L" —
No matter whose life it is.

15157

You can be a very, very
Close disciple,
But if you disobey your Master,
You can be away
Farther than the farthest.

15158

Once you accept the spiritual life,
Your Inner Pilot takes obedience
And disobedience
Most seriously.

15159

Once serious disobedience
Takes place in a disciple,
The Supreme can easily snap
The Master's connection
With the disciple.

15160

Go beyond what you see
On the earthly plane.
Otherwise you will be stuck
In the reality that your mind
Has created.

15161

The race is for the brave.
The race is for the swift.
If you are brave in the outer world,
You will be swift in the inner world,
And
If you are swift in the inner world,
You will be brave in the outer world.

15162

To be a Hanuman-like disciple,
Just say,
"I can do it.
Lo, I have already done it."

15163

Who is preventing you
From marching forward?
Again, who is begging you
To march backward?
Who?

15164

Swiftness in the inner life
Comes from faith on your part
And Grace on God's part.

15165

God is definitely eager
To see and to converse with
His true devotee.

15166

When you constantly live
Inside your heart,
Grace from Above descends
Most profusely.

15167

God will never remain indebted
To those who do something good
For Him on earth!

15168

Gratitude is something very sweet
That makes you feel
Your whole existence
Has offered something great
And precious to God.

15169

Purity
Is in oneness
With God's Will.

15170

The happiness that you get
By pleasing yourself
In your own way
Is nothing in comparison to
The happiness that you get
By pleasing God
In His own Way.

15171

If you have no eagerness
To regain
All your divine qualities,
Then little by little
God will withdraw from you.

15172

All the divine qualities
Are present
In our oneness with God's Will.

15173

Let us hasten the hour
When we can divinely
And proudly declare:
"Ignorance, no more!"

15174

The inner independence starts with
The feeling of interdependence
And most successfully ends with
The inner conviction
Of universal oneness.

15175

Inner oneness never ends;
It only grows and glows
And increases its territories
Divinely and perfectly.

15176

If we can create within ourselves
Sleepless cries
And boundless hunger
For our liberation from age-long
Ignorance-night,
We are bound to succeed.

15177

Open your heart's eye,
The eye that cries and cries
Only for God's Compassion
And God's Satisfaction.

15178

When you think of the future,
You are placing upon
Your poor human shoulders
The weight of ten elephants.

15179

If you want to possess God,
You will inevitably become
A beggar.

15180

If you want to become
God's prince,
Then allow Him to possess you
In His own Way.

15181

If you have genuine aspiration,
Then for you there is no such thing
As the future.

15182

If you become
What God wants you to be,
Then there is no happiness
That can ever be denied you.

15183

How can we transcend ourselves
If we do not challenge
Our capacities?

15184

God is inviting you
To sit upon His Wings
And help Him fly
To the farthest corners
Of the globe.

15185

Alas, when God looks at you,
He sees a sleeping lion
Instead of a roaring lion.

15186

Our mind can never understand
The meaning and significance
Of God-ordained responsibility.

15187

Transform your responsibilities
Into golden opportunities
So that you can run like a deer,
Faster than the fastest.

15188

A giant ignorance-opponent
Frequently comes to us
In the form of carelessness.

15189

If you want to escape
From the hard reality,
You can,
But you cannot escape
From the Universal Reality.

15190

Those who are always enthusiastic
About what the Master is doing
Are the Master's crown jewels.

15191

Those who wallow in
Unwillingness and sloth
Shall receive
A larger than the largest zero
In the inner world.

15192

Have you forgotten
That the same God
Whom you are failing
So miserably in this world
Will examine you
In the other world?

15193

May our aspiration-bird
Ceaselessly fly
With its God-manifestation-wings.

15194

He who aspires sincerely
Will feel the bounden necessity
To manifest God.

15195

The day you lose your enthusiasm,
Eagerness and oneness
With God's Will,
Hell will celebrate your failure.

15196

The day you manifest God's Will
Smilingly and unconditionally,
Heaven will celebrate
Its victory in and through
Your aspiration-life.

15197

A true Master
Never creates
Carbon copies of himself.

15198

Still there is time
For you to wake up
From your inconscience-sleep.

15199

If you are unwilling
To be one with God,
Do you think He will be dying
To be one with you?

15200

Your cheerful oneness
With God's Will
Multiplies your capacities
In boundless measure.

15201

God wanted you to run
Towards the Light
Like a deer,
But you have chosen
To crawl like a turtle.

15202

If your mind or vital
Is not allowing you
To be humble,
Then bring to the fore
Your soul's light
To convince them
That humility
Is of paramount importance.

15203

The moment you are humble,
Your oneness-light will spread
All around.

15204

Follow the ancient disciplines
And pray and meditate
In the small hours
Of the morning.

15205

Follow the ancient disciplines
And soulfully recite
The sacred mantra-incantations.

15206

Follow the ancient disciplines
And soulfully sing
Soul-stirring invocations
To our Lord Beloved Supreme.

15207

If you follow
All the ancient disciplines
Early in the morning,
Your mounting aspiration-flames
Will reach the Highest
Sooner than at once.

15208

Your devoted surrender to God's Will
Can help you look at pain
From a different angle
And transform it into purest joy.

15209

If you have one foot
In one spiritual boat
And one foot in another,
You are bound to fall into
The ignorance-sea.

15210

An ageless river flows
Through the modern aspiration
And dedication-life.

15211

At every moment you have to know
Who is going to carry you to God
And
Who is going to take you away,
Farther than the farthest,
From God.

15212

You can be aware of
Your inner progress
By observing the happiness
Inside you.

15213

The Supreme has entrusted everyone
With the golden opportunity
To embark
On a new project.

15214

During your deep meditation,
If you receive a message from within,
Then spontaneously, sleeplessly
And with utmost humility and devotion,
Try to manifest it into reality.

15215

Once you enter into
The spiritual life,
You have to take each incident
In your life
As a God-given experience.

15216

If our Beloved Lord Supreme
Agrees to suffer with us,
Then we have to accept our fate
As it is.

15217

Divine enterprises exist on earth
To awaken and serve
The aspiring mankind
In accordance with
The Supreme's Vision.

15218

Like a farmer,
God scatters inspiration-seeds
Here and there.
Who knows at which place
Receptivity will allow the seed
To germinate!

15219

God has chosen you
And you have chosen Him.
God the Flower has offered you
His Beauty and Fragrance.
Again, it is you who saw the Beauty
And breathed in the Fragrance.

15220

If you want to expedite
God's Hour,
You must be more self-giving
And more willing to devote yourself
To pleasing Him in His own Way.

15221

Receptivity increases
Only in one way:
By shedding tears
Of gratitude.

15222

The more gratitude you can offer
To God,
The more you can create
Positive thoughts, positive ideas
And positive goals
For yourself.

15223

Our way is the way
Of heart-to-heart
Oneness.

15224

Let us run and run
Along Eternity's Road
To reach the Golden Shore
Of the Beyond.

15225

Let us swim and swim
Across the ignorance-sea
To reach the Golden Shore
Of the Beyond.

15226

There is only one medicine
To get rid of anger-attack:
Forgive immediately
And forget deliberately.

15227

If you do not forget
Certain incidents in your life,
They will come to you
As a painful experience
Again and again.

15228

Spiritual Masters
Come into the world
With only one goal:
To lift up the consciousness
Of humanity.

15229

Our divine soul laughs and laughs
When it sees the yawning gulf
Between our present achievements
And our future contributions.

15230

Our philosophy is
To synthesise and harmonise
The inner life
And the outer life.

15231

If our Inner Pilot inundates us
With inspiration,
Then quality need not be sacrificed
For the sake of quantity.

15232

If you have no faith
In yourself,
Then you will have no faith
In anybody else.

15233

If we can all become
Good citizens of the world,
Then the face and fate
Of the world
Will be changed overnight.

15234

To rid yourself
Of inertia, lethargy,
Frustration and depression,
What you need is
Dynamism and speed
In your body, vital, mind
And heart.

15235

In the beginning,
God was formless.
Then He adopted Form
For His own sake.
When He became the Form,
A tiny portion of Him
Entered into each human being.
That tiny portion is the connecting link
Between the finite and the Infinite.

15236

Only when we have become
Consciously and totally one
With the Form of the Supreme
Can we go to the formless One.

15237

It is extremely difficult
To go directly to the Supreme
As disembodied Consciousness.

15238

The outer running may not make
The mind less doubtful,
But it may temporarily reduce
The mind's capacity
To think undivine thoughts.

15239

Enthusiasm comes automatically
When you want to please somebody
Whom you love.

15240

Practice carries the message
Of oneness and self-transcendence,
Whereas
Competition often carries the message
Of division and supremacy.

15241

One-pointed concentration
Is the pathfinder
For a deeper meditative
Consciousness.

15242

When discouragement
And temporary lack of enthusiasm
Attack you,
Feel that all your problems
Are as insignificant as ants.

15243

I can be truly satisfied
Only when my Creator
Is satisfied with me.

15244

If my Creator is not satisfied
With me,
A day will come
When He will inject inspiration
And aspiration into me
So that I will become perfect.

15245

To cope with the disappointment
Of losing,
Just ask yourself whether
It is your mind or your heart
That is disappointed.
Immediately you will discover
That it is your division-mind
And not your oneness-heart.

15246

No disappointment on earth
Will dare to challenge
The flood of joy
That you receive
From your prayer-life
And meditation-heart.

15247

As there is always hunger
In every aspect of life,
Even so, there is always Somebody
To supply nourishment.

15248

If everything in life
Were easy,
Then we would be satisfied
With our self-complacency.

15249

What am I?
An indomitable spirit
Encaged in an earthly frame.

15250

Most human beings
Are apt to feel
That the inner realities
Cannot be manifested
In the outer world.

15251

If there is no poise,
There can be no successful
Outer movement,
For poise is unseen power.

15252

Give yourself,
Widen yourself,
Receive the vast world
And be received
By the vast world:
These are the messages
A divine heart gets
From the higher worlds
And offers to the outer world.

15253

The outer desire says:
"Run, reach
And then smile."
The inner aspiration says:
"Smile and run,
Run and smile."

15254

When you increase your capacities,
Automatically you establish
A glowing hope
And a soaring promise
For your fellow brothers and sisters
Of the world.

15255

In time,
Merciless criticism
Corrodes
The human capacities.

15256

The golden past
Was once upon a time
The distant future.

15257

By putting "if"
Between you and God,
You are ruining
All your prayers.

15258

God's Capacity is limitless;
Again, He gets tremendous Joy
By challenging His Capacities.

15259

If our capacity surrenders
To our will-power,
Then at every moment
We can challenge impossibility.

15260

Why have you allowed
Insecurity-bee to sting
Your fresh mind
And your pure heart?

15261

There is every possibility
That a seeker can realise God
In the short span
Of one life.

15262

The Master's scoldings
Are nothing but
His unalloyed concern
For his spiritual children.

15263

When you meditate,
You embody only good thoughts.
You will not find fault
With others;
You will not speak ill
Of them;
You will not be a hindrance
To their achievements;
You will not try
To surpass them.

15264

The physical has to aspire
In its own way
To increase its capacity.
Otherwise the physical
Will always remain lethargic.

15265

My Beloved Lord Supreme,
Do transport me to the land
Of limitless and ceaseless
Ecstasy.

15266

My Beloved Lord Supreme,
Do transport me
To the highest realms
Of the Beyond.

15267

Even when you are at
The entrance
To God's divine Palace,
Temptation can pull you back.

15268

A spiritual Master has to make
Each individual feel
That they are his eternal friends
Of the same calibre.

15269

Until God sees you
At exactly His own standard —
Not even one iota below Him —
He will be sad.

15270

My Beloved Lord Supreme,
Please tell me point blank
What I am doing wrong.

15271

How I wish all mankind
Could avail itself
Of a spiritual elevator
And reach God
Sooner than at once.

15272

When you are of the heart,
You are aware of
Your Source.

15273

When you are in the heart,
You know that God-expansion
Is the only Reality.

15274

When you are for the heart,
You feel that God-manifestation
Is the only choice
Of your soul.

15275

Cheerfulness is a must
In guiding us towards
The Ultimate.

15276

When you feel inside
A kind of cheerful joy,
That joy is the expression
Of your heart's gratitude.

15277

God sees in you
A cluster of good, divine
And flower-like qualities.

15278

When you work with enthusiasm,
You are bound to establish
A free access
To an unending flow of life-energy
And creative power.

15279

When we work very hard,
The idle mind, the clever vital
And the lethargic body
Always cry for sympathy.

15280

If you make your speed-flow
Very fast
And your concentration-power
Very penetrating,
Then daily you can accomplish
So many things.

15281

Fight with depression-intruder
And prove to God
That you are His hero-warrior.

15282

We are like helpless children
In the Lap of the Divine Mother.
It is Her divine Duty
To protect us
And take care of us.

15283

If we are absolutely dedicated
To the divine cause,
And if we can listen to the dictates
Of our inner being
At every moment,
Our inner being will create
Outer circumstances that will help us
In our spiritual life.

15284

In your absolutely best meditation,
Your entire being offers itself
To the Supreme —
Your soul with its illumination,
Your heart with its aspiration,
Your mind with its clarity,
Your vital with its determination,
Your body with its alertness.

15285

Unseal your vision
In order to see and feel
The Supreme's Consciousness.

15286

The countless inner stories
Of a spiritual Master
Can never be recorded.

15287

Consciousness has no barrier.
Like a kaleidoscope,
It can bring the past
And the future
Before our vision.

15288

Imagination-bird
Is all the time knocking
At your mind-door.

15289

Do not bank upon
Your previous achievements.
God wants from you
Only newness.

15290

Justice itself
Has to be moderated
From time to time.
Otherwise there will be
No justice.

15291

Those who really want to
Will always discover new ways
To please the Supreme.

15292

The great beginning
Will be followed by
The greater continuation,
And the greater continuation
Will be followed by
The greatest transcendence.

15293

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
Do bring down from Above
A celestial torrent of peace
Into my mind.

15294

As you make progress
In your spiritual life,
The supreme significance
Of your supreme achievements
Will slowly, steadily
And unerringly
Be revealed to you.

15295

Your inner achievements
Will increase the hunger-cries
Of earth
And the Satisfaction-Smiles
Of Heaven.

15296

Even one second of high meditation
Can help
Twenty other spiritual seekers.

15297

While you are meditating,
You spread divine waves
Of love and light.

15298

When we helplessly surrender
To ignorance,
Ignorance becomes infinitely
More powerful.

15299

First become God's lamb —
Obedient, humble, simple,
Sincere and one with His Will.
Then God will transform you
Into His roaring lion
So that you can execute His Will.

15300

Wherever your earthly existence is,
Your soul-bird can fly and fly
With God's most soulful
And fruitful Promise.

15301

Each truth-seeker and God-lover
Is a beautiful petal
Added to God's Lotus-Heart.

15302

Many God-Requests we have fulfilled
Over the years,
But many more still we have to fulfil.

15303

Let us discover more ways to manifest
Our Lord Beloved Supreme
Most lovingly, devotedly
And self-givingly.

15304

To say that we have not tried at all
To serve God
Is the height of our false modesty.

15305

To say that we have tried hard
But we will try infinitely harder
To serve God
Is absolutely the right attitude.

15306

God will say you are mistaken
If you feel that you cannot go
One step higher, deeper or further.

15307

You can take infinite steps
Higher, deeper and further
To manifest God's Light.

15308

May my consciousness fly throughout
The length and breadth of the world
In the skies of Infinity.

15309

How will the Supreme appreciate us
If our life-boat reaches His Golden Shore
Totally empty?

15310

If we go to God with an empty boat,
God will say, "Go back!
I do not need you
Since you have not brought
Any passengers."

15311

Divine competition
Means excelling
In one's own life.

15312

If we do not compete with others,
Lethargy may overpower us
And we may do nothing.

15313

While competing with others,
We see that our competition
Is actually with ourselves.

15314

By working self-givingly
If I make progress,
That is the progress
Of the whole world.

15315

When a new height
Has been achieved,
That is the progress
Of the whole world.

15316

"Nothing more"
Can never be the Philosophy
Of our Lord Beloved Supreme.

15317

The Philosophy
Of our Lord Beloved Supreme
Is only
"Beyond, beyond and beyond."

15318

Each seeker has to discover deep within
What more he can do
For his Beloved Supreme.

15319

If you can be in
God's Heart-Consciousness,
You will feel that you are lifting up
The burden of the entire world
Along with Him.

15320

Purity you want?
Just imagine breathing in the beauty,
Purity and fragrance of a flower.

15321

Impurity you want not?
Just breathe out fast, very fast,
All impurity-ignorance.

15322

If God is on our side,
Eventually we will win
The Godward race.

15323

Even today's far-fetched dream
Can be manifested
As tomorrow's reality.

15324

We must work hard,
Very hard,
For the fulfilment of our dream.

15325

How to control the mind?
Just live in the beauty
Of your heart-lotus.

15326

How to control the mind?
Just remain deeply absorbed
In the fragrance
Of your illumination-soul.

15327

When you appreciate the beauty
And fragrance of your own heart,
You will have no thoughts in your mind.

15328

For many centuries
We have been living
In our mind-room.

15329

Let us start living
In our newness-heart-room
And totally forget the mind-room.

15330

When we pray and meditate
Always in our heart,
We become choicest instruments
Of God.

15331

Where is our spiritual heart?
Where we get
The utmost joy and protection.

15332

Where is our spiritual heart?
Where we have the capacity
To pray to God
And meditate on God.

15333

Where is our spiritual heart?
Where we have the vision to see God,
Feel God and be blessed by God.

15334

Where is our spiritual heart?
Where we receive something profound
And something very sweet.

15335

Where is our spiritual heart?
Where we find our dearest
Reality and divinity.

15336

When I pray in my heart,
I feel my prayers
Are being answered.

15337

When I meditate in my heart,
I feel my meditation becomes
Very deep, illumining and fulfilling.

15338

The more you can see your Master
Inwardly and outwardly,
The greater will be
Your progress-speed.

15339

When you see your Master
And feel your Master,
You will do the right thing.

15340

The more you stay
In your heart-garden,
The more you will see and feel
Your Master's
Meditative consciousness.

15341

If we enter into our mind-jungle,
We destroy the flowers
That are blossoming
In our heart-garden.

15342

God-realisation depends only
On God's unconditional Compassion,
Affection and Blessings.

15343

Our duty is to pray to God.
Then God will definitely choose a day
To give us illumination-fruit.

15344

First climb up the divinity-tree
To enjoy the most delicious fruit:
God-realisation.

15345

Selflessness means
Giving something unconditionally
To the Supreme.

15346

I shall give the Supreme
My soul, heart, mind, vital and body
With no expectation.

15347

When we cheerfully give God a drop,
He proudly and delightedly
Gives us
His Infinity's Ocean.

15348

I give God what I have and what I am
Because God is the most compassionate
Father and Mother.

15349

Can there be anybody greater
Or nicer than God?
He is only waiting for His choice Hour.

15350

Our expectation only delays
The arrival of Infinity, Eternity
And Immortality.

15351

If we rely on God,
Whatever we get
Will be sufficient.

15352

If we depend on God
For everything,
God gives us
Confidence-satisfaction.

15353

The confidence-satisfaction
That we get
From our reliance on God
Can never be taken away.

15354

All human beings suffer
From trust
And lack of trust.

15355

If we trust only the Supreme,
Then the Supreme
Will never fail us.

15356

If we trust only the Supreme,
Our faith in Him
Will give Him confidence in us.

15357

You are bound to trust yourself
Because there is Someone
Who loves you infinitely more
Than you can ever imagine.

15358

If you cannot trust God,
You will not be able
To trust yourself.

15359

If you love God,
He will give you the capacity
To trust Him in all your activities.

15360

The more your God-faith increases,
The stronger will be your faith
And your trust in yourself.

15361

I can do nothing without God:
This is my sincere
And humble conviction,
Based on my oneness
With God's Will.

15362

When I do something inspiring
And illumining,
I know, I know, it is God who has done it
According to my capacity of receptivity.

15363

A peaceful world
We can create
By enlarging our heart.

15364

Peace means joy;
Joy means peace.
Peace and joy can never
Be separated.

15365

My mind is peaceful.
That means
My heart is blissful.

15366

My surrender is complete.
That means I am on my way
To a perfection-life.

15367

When do I get joy?
The moment I think of the entire world
As my own, very own.

15368

Until we can claim
The whole world as our own
With our love-power,
We will have no peace.

15369

The love that unites
Is inside
Our aspiration-heart.

15370

If we expand our heart
To embrace countless hearts,
Peace is bound to be ours.

15371

The embodiment-revelation-expansion
Of love
Is peace.

15372

When our prayer and meditation
Establish our oneness
With the entire world,
Infinity's Peace shall be ours.

15373

I do not mind if my dream-boat
Sails through the stormy weather
Because my destination is assured.

15374

Alas, poor God becomes
The embodiment of frustration
When the world does not accept
His Light.

15375

When I pray to God,
God's Blessings run and play
Inside my heart-garden.

15376

I cannot claim:
"I have done it."
It is God who has done everything.

15377

We can be unlimited
Only when we clearly feel
That God is acting
In and through us.

15378

When the Grace descends,
Our life-drop becomes
An endless creative downpour.

15379

Everything that we do
Is infinitely more beautiful,
Illumining and fulfilling
If we live a self-giving life.

15380

If you are in inner or outer trouble,
Immediately cry for your dearest one:
The Supreme.

15381

With our human strength
We can achieve nothing
Really astonishing —
Nothing, nothing!

15382

When we pray and pray,
A higher power
Beckons us.

15383

God forgives.
Therefore my millions and billions
Of mistakes disappear.

15384

God forgives.
Therefore our world can never be lost
For good.

15385

When God forgives my mind,
My ignorance-vessel is emptied
And I become again a new vessel.

15386

When God forgives my heart,
I am ready to make a new start
And become His choice instrument.

15387

Intimacy replaces separation
When I feel I have been
Completely forgiven by the Supreme.

15388

What I need is
God's complete Assurance
That He has forgiven me —
My past, present and future.

15389

Newness-feeling in our lives
Comes not from without
But from within.

15390

Why do we want to boost our ego?
Just because we separate our existence,
Inner and outer,
From the rest of the world.

15391

The more we can unite,
Prayerfully, soulfully and lovingly,
The more satisfaction-delight we get.

15392

Let our speciality
Be uniting,
Not separating.

15393

Spiritual Masters are special.
Why?
Because they love everybody.

15394

By becoming part and parcel
Of the whole world,
We become special.

15395

The most perfect way
To become special
Is to give God the responsibility
To take care of your life.

15396

Remember, imagination is not
Mental hallucination — never!
Imagination is a world of its own.

15397

When we pray most sincerely,
God is not on top of the Himalayas,
But inside our very heart.

15398

A spiritual Master is the true source
Of the disciple's greatest
Inspiration-aspiration-realisation.

15399

Unwillingness
Comes from the mind
That has become very lethargic.

15400

We can overcome unwillingness
If we know we are supposed to do
Something good for God and the world.

15401

To the very end,
We have to pray
For God's Forgiveness
And God's Compassion.

15402

How can we know
That God has forgiven us?
Because we have not repeated
The same mistake.

15403

Even though it is we
Who are tempted
To do the wrong thing,
We blame God
For allowing us to do it.

15404

When we do something good,
We say,
"By virtue of my own talent,
Capacity and prayer,
I did it."

15405

When we do something bad,
We immediately blame
A third party —
And that third party
Happens to be God.

15406

When you do something good
For humanity,
Try to imagine the Feet of God and say,
"It is all by Your Grace,
My Beloved Lord Supreme."

15407

Who gives you the inspiration
To meditate early in the morning?
God Himself.

15408

One bad thought
Can eventually lower
Your consciousness.

15409

One good thought
Gives you the strength
Of an elephant.

15410

A single thought
Has the power of a bullet:
Either it can destroy you
Or it can help you
Immensely.

15411

We are all still alive
On earth
Because some good souls
Are praying and meditating.

15412

When intensity and patience
Go together,
Receptivity is bound to come.

15413

It is better and wiser
To be a discoverer
Than an inventor.
God has hidden everything
Inside us.
We have only to discover it.

15414

The hardest task on earth
Is to lift up
The human consciousness.
It is like trying to straighten
The tail of a dog.

15415

Outwardly we call it
Patience;
Inwardly we call it
Wisdom-light.

15416

The vision of a oneness-family
Will one day cover
The length and breadth
Of the world.

15417

By itself, money-power can do
Nothing spiritually great
In this world,
But heart-power can do
And does it all the time.

15418

I love God
Not because He is omnipotent,
But because He is all Love.

15419

As long as any human being
Is on earth,
Up until the very last moment,
He can make progress
By offering his gratitude to God
And his surrender to God's Will.

15420

Just because God has given us
The capacity to please Him,
We shall offer Him
Our gratitude-heart-tears.

15421

At every moment
This precious life of mine
Is unconditionally given
To God's Will.

15422

The moment there is
Flaming aspiration
Inside your heart,
That is your real birthday.

15423

A birthday signifies
The soul's promise
To the Real in us.

15424

When you can consciously feel
That your body, vital, mind
And heart
Are all empty vessels,
Then only can God
Fill them to the brim
With His Divinity's Light
And Delight-Blessings.

15425

The mind
Is like a raging furnace,
Full of uncomely
And unhealthy thoughts.

15426

On the spur of the moment,
Aspiration will take you
To your next goal,
But it cannot carry you
To the Highest immediately.

15427

In the highest meditation,
There is no seeing,
No feeling;
There is only becoming.

15428

Whatever God asks you to do —
Even if it is a most mundane thing —
If you do it with your heart,
You will see what a gift
You have given to God.

15429

When you meditate well,
Your soul-bird flies
Among the topmost branches
Of your life-tree.

15430

When you do not meditate well,
Your soul-bird lies
At the foot of your life-tree
Almost dead,
And God has to go there
And inject the bird
With inspiration and aspiration.

15431

No matter how many times
The string of your aspiration-kite
Has snapped,
You must try and try again.

15432

Sincerity is something
That the heart is
And the mind is not.

15433

God's absolute Victory
In and through us
Comes from the feeling
That we are so fortunate
To be chosen by Him.

15434

You are so fortunate
Because your Master
Has accepted your capacities
And your weaknesses.

15435

What does God do for the Master?
He binds the Master's whole body
With rope all around.

15436

Because of your Master's
Striking capacities,
You can develop
Your own inner capacities
And remove
All your ignorance-shackles.

15437

When intensity comes
From the heart,
You feel, "I cannot breathe,
I cannot live if I do not
Achieve my goal."

15438

When intensity comes
From the mind,
You feel, "If I create intensity,
I will be able to accomplish everything
Sooner than at once."

15439

When we create intensity
With the mind,
It is like using a fire
When we do not need it.

15440

It is not because
God is displeased with you
That you have fallen;
He is displeased with you
Because you have fallen.

15441

You expect so many things
From your Master,
But can you not see
That he expects love,
Devotion and surrender
From you?

15442

I pray for the arrival
Of the cosmic goddesses
In their divine aspects
For the liberation
Of the absolutely ardent
Seekers.

15443

Do not discard imagination.
Imagination is a solid power;
Imagination is a reality
In the higher worlds.

15444

I was nothing
And
I would forever
Have remained nothing
If God's Grace
Had not entered into
My life.

15445

When we achieve something,
The first thing that comes
Is a subtle pride.
When that pride settles
Inside us,
It becomes self-gratification.

15446

We are nothing
In comparison to
What we shall become
If we pray and meditate
For the remainder of our lives.

15447

Intensity is not something tense.
Intensity comes only
When you are hungry and thirsty
For God's Presence.

15448

Inside you is a divine swimmer
Who is all the time
Swimming inside your heart-river
With tremendous inner joy.

15449

You, too, can invent
Something absolutely new
Which nobody else
Has invented.
What is that thing?
You will give and give
To humanity and to God,
But you will not ask
For anything in return.

15450

God always thinks of you
As His unprecedented Dream,
Which is not similar
To any other Dream of His.

15451

When the devotion-magnet
Disappears,
Gratitude soon follows
Its example.

15452

Fight against dissatisfaction
In your own life,
For dissatisfaction will take away
All your joy and energy.

15453

An unconscious mistake
Is still
A mistake.

15454

If kindness does not carry
Inner light,
Then it can be badly
Misused.

15455

One negative force can destroy
All our good qualities,
Plus compel us
To drink poison.

15456

When the mind is not
Fossilised,
The soul can make
Very fast progress.

15457

We must challenge and conquer
The giant pride of our own
Self-doubt.

15458

How long can you
Deny God?
How long can you bear
The absence of His Light?

15459

Because we do not have peace
Inside our hearts,
We fight.
Because we inwardly feel
That we are weak,
We fight.

15460

If you constantly think
Of the descent of your
Consciousness,
Then the power of that descent
Will all the time haunt you.

15461

You will ruin
Your most powerful concentration
And meditation
If you always keep your eyes
On the hands of the clock.

15462

If one is consciously indulgent
In the spiritual life,
One cannot make
Satisfactory progress.

15463

Each undivine thought
Is an insect
That has come to destroy
The most beautiful flowers
In your heart-garden.

15464

How can you do anything
That will ruin the beauty,
Fragrance and divinity
Of your heart?
Your heart is your very
Existence.

15465

Am I a fool
To destroy my heart,
Which is the most important thing
In God's creation?

15466

When there is self-indulgence,
There is always an after-effect:
Destruction of the beautiful moon
Inside you.

15467

By diminishing your bad qualities
And by increasing your good qualities,
You can easily be the judge
Of your own life.

15468

We need a mind
That is absolutely dynamic
And alert,
And not a mind
That is numb, dull
And insensitive.

15469

Mental deception comes
When we are not fully prepared
To discipline our mind,
Our vital and our body.

15470

Illumination
Is a slow and steady
Progress.

15471

To have abundant energy,
Imagine not one
But hundreds of flames
Inside your heart.

15472

We are all pilgrims
Here on earth
And we are running
Together
Towards the Golden Shore.

15473

The day
You do not pray,
Everything is chaos.

15474

Right now
Our duty is to sow
The seeds of love
And
The seeds of compassion.

15475

The Master not only provides
The short-cut
But he also removes
All the high hurdles
In your path.

15476

Alas, just because
Our vessel is so small,
We cannot hold the Concern,
Compassion and Love
That God is pouring into us.

15477

When our God-gratitude
Increases,
A new road ahead
Immediately becomes visible.

15478

God is blessing you
Unconditionally.
That means He has also
Given you the capacity
To love Him unconditionally.

15479

On the day of our birth,
The soul says,
"I am loving God
Unconditionally.
My brother heart,
My brother mind,
My brother vital
And my brother body,
You also do the same."

15480

If ever we allow
Our hope-dream-flame
To be extinguished,
Death will immediately come,
Smiling and dancing,
To strangle us
With death-shackles.

15481

Hope makes us
Humble.
Expectation fills us
With haughty confidence.

15482

Your own weakness
Is the magnet
That draws out
The faults of others.

15483

Whether God forgives us
Or not
Is up to Him,
But if we can pray to God
Sincerely for forgiveness,
It illumines our mind
And purifies our heart.

15484

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
Please forgive me now
For the great mistakes
That I may make tomorrow.

15485

Our prayer-life is not only
For our past mistakes.
We can also pray for God
To remove the obstacles
That lie ahead.

15486

Your tomorrow's problems
Can be nullified
By your today's prayers.

15487

Never forget
That when you accepted
The spiritual life,
It was for God's sake.

15488

When you serve humanity
Devotedly,
Your service goes to the Supreme
Directly
Across a oneness-bridge.

15489

Spread
The fountain-joy
Of your pilgrim-heart
All-where.

15490

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
Do increase the purity and gratitude
Inside my heart
To expedite my spiritual journey.

15491

Knowledge
Can be easily contradicted,
But wisdom-light
Can never be.

15492

Everything in God's creation
Is temporary,
Save and except peace, love,
Joy and light.

15493

Protection comes quickly
If you pray for forgiveness
At the same time.

15494

The desires of the lower vital
Can be conquered
Only by the longing of the
Higher vital
To identify itself with the Vast.

15495

Vastness
Immediately purifies,
Illumines, envelops
And swallows impurity.

15496

Those who push and pull
In the spiritual life
Will find themselves
Pushed aside
And pulled behind.

15497

God relies on
This tiny earth planet
For the manifestation
Of His Transcendental Vision.

15498

We do not value Light
Because
We do not value meditation.
We do not value meditation
Because
We do not have inner hunger.

15499

If you find your road
Is strewn with thorns,
That does not mean
That God cares for you
Less.

15500

God Himself
Is the wisdom-light
Inside you
When you are trying
To overcome
Insurmountable obstacles.

15501

The heart's aspiration-cries
And
The mind's dissatisfaction-frowns
Never meet.

15502

Now that my mind
Has surrendered to my heart,
I can proudly heave
A sigh of relief.

15503

Once the mind is awakened,
It overrules the dictatorship
Of doubt.

15504

What we all need
Is a failure-proof
Aspiration-heart
And a failure-proof
Dedication-life.

15505

If you consciously cherish
Your doubting mind,
Then you are bound to have
A strained relationship
With God's Compassion-Heart.

15506

If you can surrender your human life
To God's divine Will,
Then your divine human heart
Can have a marathon conversation
With God's divine Eye.

15507

God does not want to see
Your tearful eyes
Inside the beauty of
Your aspiration-heart.

15508

To undo the mind's confusion-knot,
What you need
Is a soulfully blossoming thought.

15509

Love the inner world,
Serve the outer world
Sleeplessly.
Yours will be the life
That will have no faults.

15510

My Lord Supreme,
I am all gratitude to You
For You have blessed my life
With a new reserve
Of optimism-light.

15511

Last night I was so happy
That my mind was ruthlessly struck
By self-doubt.

15512

How can you make
Any satisfactory progress
If your mind is blinded
By your negative attitude
Towards the inner life
And the ultimate Destination?

15513

God will wait for us,
Even when our mind
Is late in its awareness,
Our heart
Is late in its wakefulness
And our life
Is late in its soulfulness.

15514

My true friend is he
Who loves me
For what I inwardly am
And not
For what I outwardly have.

15515

Be kind.
Be involved in your friend's
Outer problems.

15516

Be wise.
Be not involved in your friend's
Inner decisions.

15517

Every day God sends
His supreme Message-Light
To me
Through my friends,
But alas, quite often
My mind is focused elsewhere.

15518

My friend is
My mind's happiness
In my outer life.

15519

My friend is
My heart's fulness
In my inner life.

15520

Every day
I learn so much
About myself
Just by listening
To my dear friend.

15521

To me, a seeker-friend
Is a rich supply
Of spiritual energy.

15522

Maintain friendship at any cost!
At times, even your dearest friend
May annoy you, exasperate you
And even enrage you.
Have patience.
Your friend will eventually
Change for the better
And you will be mightily happy.

15523

On earth everyone becomes our friend.
Afterwards, we come to realise
That there is only one Friend
And that Friend is God.

15524

Without friendship
This world would not exist,
Even for a fleeting second —
Whether it is human friendship
Or divine friendship.

15525

My prayer
Is
A monologue.

15526

My surrender
Is
A dialogue.

15527

May my searching mind
Inspire.

15528

May my loving heart
Aspire.

15529

May my strangling vital
Expire!

15530

The mind says
God can
If He wants to.

15531

The heart says
God will
Because He wants to.

15532

My heart is not perfect.
But unlike my mind,
It longs to be perfect.

15533

To be humble
And not to be appreciated
By God
Is indeed a contradiction.

15534

O my mind,
Yesterday I used you,
But today
I want to use my heart.

15535

I love my life's
Service-mind-hours.

15536

God loves my heart's
Surrender-result-moments.

15537

Progress
Is happiness.
Happiness
Is willingness.

15538

Aspiration
Creates.
Dedication
Reveals.

15539

My purity-heart is
A temple
With God the Satisfaction-Smile
Inside.

15540

Everything else can wait,
But not
My God-obedience.

15541

For God-lovers, divinity-lovers
And music-lovers,
Each soulful song
Is a most delicious banquet
In the inner world.

15542

Today's confidence
Is
Tomorrow's progress.

15543

Two commanders:
Aspiration-commander commands,
"Go up!"
Temptation-commander commands,
"Go down!"

15544

When I am on tiptoe,
I see the Face of God.

15545

When I am on my knees,
God makes me another God.

15546

Satisfaction is not only
At the finish line
But also
At the starting line.

15547

True, your mind is unhappy.
That does not mean
That you will ask
Your unhappy mind
To destroy
Your happy heart.

15548

Love needs no sword,
No chain,
To govern me, my life.

15549

My Lord has no time
To straighten me
And my mind,
But He has all the time
To enlighten me
And my heart.

15550

You can never free yourself
If you depend only on
Man's approval.

15551

God has time
To dance
If you have time
To sing with Him.

15552

Sympathy says,
"I am sorry
That I am not able
To help you."

15553

Compassion says,
"I am happy
That I can be of help
To you."

15554

Disobedience
Is
Self-punishment.

15555

Obedience
Is
God-enlightenment.

15556

When I try to understand God,
I make myself
Unhappy.

15557

When I try to trust God,
God Himself makes me
Happy.

15558

The mind
Wants
To see the world.

15559

The heart
Wants
To love the world.

15560

The soul
Wants
To become the world itself.

15561

Do not be afraid of tomorrow,
For God is already waiting for you
Eagerly
At the Destination.

15562

Each human being is
A Blessing-Compassion-Vision-
Promise-Song
Of God.

15563

To transcend our capacities,
Nothing is as important
As our heart's
Eagerness-enthusiasm.

15564

The fear of the mind
Is undoubtedly strong,
But the faith of the heart
Is infinitely stronger.

15565

How can you fulfil your promises
If your mind treasures
Venom-doubts?

15566

If you want to run always the fastest
In your inner life of aspiration,
Then never allow
Your heart's devotion-flower
To wither.

15567

If you need fulness-satisfaction,
Then you must first become
A citizen
Of oneness-country.

15568

My heart's soulful surrender
Is my life's first-hand
Freedom-experience.

15569

Divinity can manifest
Most perfectly
And most satisfactorily
Only when the mind becomes
A purity-powerhouse.

15570

God wants you to learn
That my goodness-heart
Is infinitely sweeter
Than my greatness-mind.

15571

Just change your thought-pattern!
Lo, the entire world loves you,
Needs you and claims you
As its very own.

15572

One lifetime is not enough
To think of God's Forgiveness,
Meditate on God's Compassion
And dream of God's Perfection.

15573

A drop of purity-mind
Is a great friend of
An ocean of gratitude.

15574

O my heart,
Where are you?
You alone are
My satisfaction-tower.

15575

A true aspiration-life
Can never heave
A sigh of failure.

15576

My soul's universal message is:
O world, be not discouraged!
My Lord Supreme has not yet
Given up on you.

15577

When my heart's purity
Challenges my mind's impurity,
My Lord's Manifestation-Light
Becomes clearer than the clearest
And brighter than the brightest.

15578

There is no human life
That has not been bitten
By frustration-snake.

15579

A sincere seeker
Must always feel
That each second
Is a God-serving opportunity.

15580

God's Heart-Temple
Is filled
With humanity's
Ingratitude-breath.

15581

As earthly peace
Is on the increase,
Even so, Heavenly Satisfaction
Is on the increase.

15582

Expectation is sweet.
Aspiration is sweeter.
Self-offering is by far
The sweetest.

15583

Alas, the insecurity of the heart
And the impurity of the mind
Are ruling the human kingdom.

15584

May my searching mind
Be protected
By Infinity's Silence
And Eternity's Joy.

15585

A heart of faith
Consciously does not want
To be aware of
A mind of doubt.

15586

When I enter into
My heart-garden,
Whom do I see first?
I see my Lord,
Eternity's Patience-Gardener.

15587

O my foolish mind,
Will you ever open
Your heart's forgiveness-door?

15588

O my Lord Supreme,
Do give me a heart
That is always open
To change.

15589

I have counted my God-Blessings.
God's Forgiveness-Smile
Is the treasure of my heart.

15590

There are two unanswered questions:
Is God for me always?
Am I always for God?

15591

I do not want to know
The future of this earth.
I wish to see a better face
And a better heart
Of this earth.

15592

Do not inspect,
O my mind.
Do not suggest,
O my heart.
Just give what you have.
Just become
What you are supposed to be.

15593

Do not think of happiness.
Just pray for happiness
And grow into
The fragrance-beauty
Of happiness.

15594

The mind says,
"What I have
Is not for you."

15595

The heart says,
"Not only is what I have
For you,
But I also give you the authority
To claim me as your own."

15596

It is not once in a lifetime
That you are given the chance
To become a perfect human being.
You get the chance every day —
A thousand times.

15597

Choose your heart
And not your mind
If you want to receive God
When He arrives.

15598

A spiritual Master
Shows us how we speak to God
When we enter into
Our destructive vital.

15599

A spiritual Master
Conveys the messages of our body,
Vital, mind, heart and soul.

15600

The words of a spiritual Master
Are not something foreign
To our aspiring hearts
And searching minds.

15601

What is the remedy
For self-complacency?
Alertness.

15602

What is the remedy
For fear?
Love and more love.

15603

If you take your existence
As one with God's,
Why should you be afraid
Of anything?

15604

As we cannot live on earth
With yesterday's food,
Even so, we cannot please God
With yesterday's dedicated service,
Yesterday's prayer
And yesterday's meditation.

15605

Ego's root is jealousy
And
Jealousy's root is separation.

15606

If your love for God
Is like the Ganges,
Which is constantly flowing
Down from the Himalayas,
There is nothing you will not do
For God.

15607

It is the deer-speed in us
That will enable us
To run the fastest
In the spiritual life.

15608

Like the deer who runs
To and fro
Looking for the musk,
You will discover that
The supreme Reality
Is inside your heart.

15609

God will be extremely disturbed
If we simply throw away
The Blessings
Which every day, every hour,
Every minute and every second
He is pouring into us.

15610

When you spread
The Light of the Supreme
With your fruitful soul,
Our Beloved Supreme
Will bless you
With His universal Love,
Transcendental Compassion
And immortal Pride.

15611

At the dawn of the spiritual life,
Each and every seeker's heart
Comes forward
With the conscious promise
To fulfil the Supreme
In His own Way.

15612

Compassion gives.
Determination receives.
Dedication succeeds.
Aspiration proceeds.
The Smile of the Beyond fulfils.

15613

Your method is to do everything
Heroically and stoically,
But my method is to do everything
Sleeplessly.

15614

Since your life is not made
Of nothingness,
It can once again fall flat
At God's Forgiveness-Feet
And say,
"My Lord, do not forsake me!"

15615

If you do not dedicate yourself,
Your aspiration will touch
Rock bottom.

15616

We have to transcend
Our height,
But alas, we have become experts
In descending.

15617

The Vedic sacred fire
Lifts up humanity's consciousness
To the highest transcendental
Height.

15618

The Vedic sacred fire
Purifies the human in us —
Ignorance and bondage —
And illumines the divine in us —
Love, truth, peace
And bliss.

15619

The divine God-lover
Loves God consciously,
Constantly, devotedly
And unconditionally.

15620

A divine lover merges into
The infinite, eternal
And immortal Beloved Supreme.

15621

He who embodies earth's sufferings
And carries them to the Supreme
Is a divine hero-warrior.

15622

Our soul dives into
The unfathomable depth
And brings to the fore
Peace, love, light and bliss
In infinite measure
To be of devoted service
To the Supreme
In aspiring humanity.

15623

The present connects
Our beginningless past
And our eternal future.

15624

My Lord Supreme,
You have played the role
Of aspiration in and through me.
Now You want to play the role
Of inspiration in and through
All my brothers and sisters
Of the world.
As I have placed the aspiration-seed
At Your Feet,
Even so, my brothers and sisters
Shall place the inspiration-tree
At Your Feet.

15625

Make it a point to feel
That you are the soul,
The direct representative
Of the Cosmic Self.

15626

There Above,
You are the Cosmic Self.
Here below,
You are the manifesting soul.

15627

There is nothing
You cannot accomplish
Through meditation.

15628

If you feel that meditation
Can give you something
That nobody else on earth
Can give you,
Then your meditation will be
Peerless.

15629

Sweetness embodies
Ecstasy, light, delight
And Immortality.

15630

When one becomes
Receptive,
One is endowed with
Sweetness, oneness and fulness.

15631

When we are friendly,
We appreciate.
When we appreciate,
We trust.
When we trust,
We love.
When we love,
We become one.

15632

When we are awakened
From the night of ignorance,
We come to realise
That God has given us
What He has: Love
And
He sustains us with
What He is: Love.

15633

God, the Author of all good,
Has transplanted in us
All His divine qualities.

15634

The world needs our service,
Not our help.
The moment we feel that
We are going to help the world,
We begin our superiority-game.

15635

When we devotedly serve the world,
We offer our humility,
Our capacity
And our feeling of oneness.

15636

Our prayers can be
An additional strength
To those hero-warriors
Who are fighting against
World-disharmony.

15637

With total transformation,
The entire being becomes
What God is —
Perfection.

15638

On earth and in Heaven,
Only one thing we need
And that is perfection.

15639

Consecrate yourself
Devotedly and integrally
To the inner life.

15640

The highest vow one can make
Is to realise
And manifest
The Absolute Supreme.

15641

Fortunately, God's Compassion
And not God's Justice
Is the last word
In our human life.

15642

If you do your selfless service
In pindrop silence
With utmost attention
And devotion,
Then it is your real
Meditation.

15643

In the spiritual world
There is no proxy;
One must do everything
Oneself.

15644

If all the world's
Worries and anxieties
Are entering into you,
Then throw yourself
Into selfless service.
That is the only medicine
To cure you.

15645

Human concern is most often
Another name for
Unrecognised attachment.

15646

Divine concern is the result
Of our inseparable
Universal oneness.

15647

Each individual
Is a true descendant
Of God.

15648

You have the right
To do the right thing.
You have the right
To say the right thing.
You have the right
To become the right thing.
Right is the divine impetus
Within you.

15649

The day I become perfect,
Mother Earth will bless me
Because there will be
One less imperfect person
On earth.

15650

Who makes your life
Meaningful and fruitful?
Not you,
But the One who is operating
In and through you.

15651

The divine Force
Is eager to operate
In and through you
Twenty-four hours a day,
Provided you give it
The chance.

15652

If you can think of the Supreme
Infinitely more than you think
Of yourself,
All your problems will be solved.

15653

At the end of your life's journey,
God will ask you only one question:
"What have you done for Me?"

15654

At the end of your life's journey,
If you can say to the Supreme,
"I came into the world;
I loved You and served You
In humanity
And I surrendered
To the Inner Pilot
In humanity,"
Then God will immediately
Embrace you and place you
On His Throne.

15655

At the end of your earth-pilgrimage,
God will not listen
To all your lame excuses.

15656

Start your spiritual journey
Right from this moment.
There is no tomorrow,
There is no today,
There is not even a full day
At your disposal.

15657

It is better to know
Our own weak points,
So that we can exterminate
Those weak points
From our life.

15658

From time to time
Spiritual Masters come
To illumine the consciousness
Of the earth.
It is an eternal game
With a continuous flow
Of divine players.

15659

Humanity's joy will come
By giving joy
To Divinity.

15660

Down the sweep of centuries,
Millions of seekers have failed
When it came time to make
Their surrender unconditional.

15661

Even if an unconditionally
Surrendered seeker
Cherishes a good desire
And God fulfils it,
That seeker will feel
That he has failed.

15662

If we really want
God's Victory on earth,
Then all the weaknesses
That we have
We must surrender to Him
Unconditionally.

15663

An unconditionally surrendered
Disciple
Will have no aspiration-limit,
No dedication-limit
And
No manifestation-limit.

15664

An unconditionally surrendered
Disciple
Will not need any credentials.

15665

Can prayer be inferior
To anything?
Can meditation be inferior
To anything?
No, no, no!

15666

Prayer and meditation
Are the Life-Breath
Of God.

15667

Inside your heart-safe
You must keep
Your most precious treasure:
Your Beloved Supreme.

15668

The inner runner
Is always trying to offer
Inspiration and aspiration
To the outer runner.

15669

Pray with folded hands,
Devotedly and intensely,
If you want your prayer
To reach
Your Lord Supreme.

15670

My Beloved Lord Supreme,
I am invoking Your Presence
To spread Light
To the suffering human beings.

15671

One who is divinely practical
Can bring God into his life
On the outer plane.

15672

A spiritual seeker knows
What practicality is,
Because he has practically proved
In his own life
The necessity of God
And God's Compassion.

15673

Every time you intensify
Your God-eagerness,
You receive more Blessings
From God.

15674

God tolerates
Humanity's wrong actions
With the hope that one day
We will turn over a new leaf
And run towards the Light.

15675

Why does God tolerate
Our imperfections?
Because He Himself has sown
The seed of perfection
Deep inside us.

15676

If your aspiration is always
In ascendance,
Then you can keep
The divine Force
Permanently
Inside your heart.

15677

Faith in oneself says:
"I will always remain
In my highest.
I will always maintain
My oneness with God."

15678

The Call has come for you
From Above
To please God and fulfil Him
In His own Way.

15679

We must carry
The Message of the Supreme
To earth
And then we must carry
The message of earth
To the Supreme.

15680

The Message of Heaven
Is Delight.
The message of earth
Is perfection.

15681

Do not deprive others
Of their chance
To reach the Goal.

15682

Try to approach God
With the good qualities
That you have
And not with the good qualities
That you do not have.

15683

To please God in His own Way
Is to do what God wants
Even before He asks.

15684

We have inside us
A miniature world
Which we are trying
To illumine.

15685

The greatest miracle
For a spiritual Master
Is to smile at the world,
Because the heart
Of a spiritual Master
Is bleeding like the Ganges
At every second.

15686

Every day we stand between
Our forgetfulness of God
And
Our conscious awareness of God.

15687

Every day comes to you
As a new hope, new promise,
New aspiration, new energy,
New thrill and new delight.

15688

You can transcend yourself
Only by discovering
And maintaining
Your joy.

15689

Every day you have to
Energise yourself
To feel new hope
And new aspiration.

15690

If you have no hope,
On that day you are
As good as dead.

15691

All the limitations
That we have,
We ascribe to God also.

15692

Individuality and personality
Disappear
Inside our universality.

15693

The sooner your shortcomings
Come to the fore,
The better.
Otherwise, they will lie dormant
In your consciousness.

15694

If you are suffering from
Ego-problems or jealousy-problems,
Do not be frightened.
Do not be disappointed.
On the contrary, be grateful
To the Supreme
For the opportunity
To free yourself from them
Forever.

15695

Each individual
Is a separate note
In the never-ending
Song of humanity.

15696

O children of the Supreme,
You are not the children of the past,
But the children of the Eternal Now.
You are the children
Of the ever-glowing Heart,
Ever-flowing Soul
And ever-illumining Body
Of the Supreme.

15697

Pure gold is your heart's
Intense inner cry
And your life's
Sincere self-giving.

15698

God pulls and pulls you
From within
Until you are safely
Inside His Heart.

15699

Until you have confidence
That you will stay with God,
Your life will always be
On tenterhooks.

15700

When the aspiring mind
Is filled with divine ecstasy,
It is ready to charm and illumine
The entire being.

15701

There was a time when your mind
Found it extremely difficult
To surrender to your heart.
But now, by the infinite Grace
Of the Supreme,
Your soul's light has entered
Into your mind through the heart.

15702

Only an illumined mind
Can run together
With the aspiring heart
And the fulfilling soul.

15703

It is a tremendous achievement
For the mind to be illumined
By the soul's light
And to be fully ready to share its wealth
With the entire being.

15704

Your aspiration-waves
Are moving around,
Like a revolving door,
But they have not yet touched
The highest Height.

15705

The inner cry creates receptivity.
Inside receptivity, gratitude flows.
Nothing else can produce it.

15706

If you work hard
On the inner plane,
You will be blessed
With gratitude.

15707

Aspiration-plant is not
The end.
Realisation-tree is not
The end.
Revelation-flower is not
The end.
Manifestation-fruit is not
The end.
There is no end, there is no end.

15708

If you keep your inner silence
As an isolated experience-reality,
It will never produce something
Soulful and fruitful in your life.

15709

If we fail even in one thing,
The hostile forces may compel us
To fail in everything.

15710

If we do not fail in one thing,
The hostile forces
Can never compel us
To fail in anything.

15711

Become a soulful member
Of the ever-aspiring
Universal orchestra
Of the Supreme's Cosmic Game.

15712

There is no neutrality
In the spiritual life.
Either you are on God's side
Or you are on the side of ignorance.

15713

When you mix with ignorance,
Even to budge an inch
For God's sake
Is most difficult.

15714

When you are inundated
With Light,
Even if God asks you
To climb up Mount Everest,
You will do it easily.

15715

No spiritual Master
Of the highest height
Has failed.
They struggled hard,
And whatever humanity
Could receive
Or wanted to receive,
It has received.

15716

What we need
Is the capacity of a bird
To pierce the skies.

15717

If you want to deal with
Your present world
Wisely,
Then you need only one thing:
Oneness with God's Will.

15718

Wisdom is not the accumulation
Of thoughts and ideas
Which are at your disposal
To offer to mankind.

15719

Wisdom is to obey
The Message of God
At every moment.
There is no other wisdom.

15720

Love, devotion and surrender —
These divine qualities
Are your inner jewels.

15721

Your divine dream-boat
Will one day touch
The Reality-Shore.

15722

The delight of the universal Self
Will eventually transform
The earth-bound consciousness
Into the Heaven-free Reality.

15723

God's supreme Palace
Will always house and protect you
Inwardly and outwardly.

15724

Let your heart
Be the living proof
That gratitude exists
On earth.

15725

Through our prayer-life
And meditation-life,
We must immeasurably
Strengthen ourselves
To shoulder our God-ordained
Spiritual responsibilities.

15726

My Absolute Lord Supreme,
Please bless me
With confidence-clarity
And
Assurance-inevitability.

15727

In the aspiration-world
Receptivity is found
In the beautiful garden
Of devotion.

15728

If you remain all by yourself
And all for yourself,
Your soul will not take responsibility
For your actions.

15729

Our soul is like a mother
Who is always hiding
Her children's shortcomings.

15730

Disobedience is the root cause
Of the soul's unhappiness
And disappointment.

15731

If you do not accept
The soul's guidance,
It is like being all alone
In the street at night
In a heavy downpour.
Desperately you are trying
To go home,
But you have lost your way.

15732

Who can say when
The soul will decide
Not to intervene any more
In human ignorance?

15733

Even a small detour
In the spiritual life
Can take you
Farther than the farthest
From the Goal.

15734

It is simply impossible
For any seeker to remain
At the same standard,
Without budging,
Either upwards or downwards.

15735

If you invoke God's Protection
From morning to night
Every day,
Then He will never fail you.

15736

Do not depend solely
On divine Grace
For your progress.
You have to increase soulfully
Your own personal efforts.

15737

The Goal has to be won.
If it comes and stands
In front of you
At your journey's start,
You will not value it.

15738

If you really love God,
Then wherever He is,
You have to run.

15739

Since God has taken the trouble
To come to us,
We must also take the trouble
To go to Him.

15740

He who hides from the world
In a Himalayan cave
Will discover that his own mind
Has brought scorpion-thoughts
To torture him.

15741

By withdrawing from the world
Do we accomplish anything?
No! We are only avoiding
The hurdles
That must be faced and overcome.

15742

We forget to cry for
God's Forgiveness
When we see
That we do not get
His punishment.

15743

When you do not listen
To your soul
For the first time,
It is weak disobedience.

15744

When you do not listen
To your soul
For the second or third time,
It is bold defiance.

15745

Insecurity in the heart
Comes from
Impurity in the mind.

15746

When you discourage others,
You have to feel
That you have dropped
A most beautiful piece of glass.

15747

Without inner joy,
Everything becomes
Monotonous.

15748

You can never be an authority
On others.
You can only be an authority
On your own self-improvement.

15749

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
I have shaken off
My God-disappointment-past.

15750

My Lord Beloved Supreme,
I am now welcoming
My tomorrow's golden realities.

15751

I can vividly see
My Lord Beloved Supreme
Right in front of my vision-eye.
He is telling me
That He is all-eager
To play with me.

15752

Alas, long buried in oblivion
Is
Your aspiration-heart.

15753

If you can develop
The beauty and fragrance
Of gratitude
Every day,
Then there is nothing
That the Supreme will not do
For you.

15754

Negligible disobedience
Is like a little hole
That gradually becomes
Bigger and bigger.

15755

If you are tempted
To do something wrong,
Postpone it.

15756

If you are inspired
To do something good,
Do it immediately,
Before the birth
Of another second.

15757

Do not neglect your body.
Lethargy can give birth
To ten million hostile forces.

15758

Your old self
Is an unsatisfactory self.
And what constitutes
Your old self?
Self-doubt, insecurity
And lack of faith in God.

15759

The New Year comes
To give you another
Opportunity
To get rid of your old self.

15760

The New Year comes and goes,
But the same sad frustrations
You carry with you.

15761

There is a great difference
Between
God's Smile of Compassion
And
God's Smile of Satisfaction.

15762

God has infinitely more hope
For our lives
Than we have.

15763

Try to be conscious of the fact
That you exist to please God
And not vice versa.

15764

If you cherish anger
And frustration,
Like wildfire,
One day they will burn you
To ashes.

15765

Fearful willingness
And
Mechanical willingness
Are useless.

15766

Only cheerful willingness
Is of value,
For it embodies
Intense dynamism
And a self-giving life.

15767

Insincere seekers
Meditate
On the hands of the clock.

15768

Sincere seekers
Meditate
On the sound
Of their own heartbeat.

15769

Maintain your spiritual hunger
And thirst.
The feeling of complacency
Is your worst enemy.

15770

Do not surrender
To circumstances.
Spiritual seekers
Are supposed to be
Warriors.

15771

Daily ask your mind and heart
How you can please God
In His own Way.

15772

Consciously if you say,
"I want to please God
In His own Way,"
Then how can you
Unconsciously displease Him?

15773

There is not a single day
When God does not ask us
To do something unique
For Him
In the inner world.

15774

God finds it so difficult
To cultivate obedience
In His human children.

15775

The worst weakness
In the spiritual life
Is not ingratitude,
Not lack of surrender,
Not insecurity or impurity,
Not doubt or pride.
It is disobedience.

15776

It cannot be only
Your mental conviction
That God knows what is best
For you.
It has to be
Your psychic realisation.

15777

You can feel God's Presence
By treasuring good thoughts
And good feelings,
Which are part and parcel
Of God's Reality.

15778

If you do not want to see
God's sadness,
Then the things
That make Him sad,
You will not do.

15779

If you really value
God's Happiness,
Then the things
That make Him happy
You will increase
A hundredfold.

15780

Soulful communion with the God-Melody
Brings forward
Our heart's intense cry.

15781

When we sing soulfully,
We receive the same divine benefit
As from our highest meditation.

15782

Oneness
Is much stronger
Than unity.

15783

Oneness
Is of the heart
And of the entire being.

15784

Unity
May at times
Be established
Only on a superficial level.

15785

When we sing hauntingly,
It adds so much beauty
To God's Singing-World.

15786

When we sing soulfully,
God sees many beautiful plants
Growing in His Heart-Garden.

15787

When we do not sing soulfully,
The plants in God's Heart-Garden
Do not become dry — they just die!

15788

Just by taking divine music seriously,
We can make
A remarkable improvement
In the musical world.

15789

Just by practising God-songs devotedly,
We can sing soulfully, powerfully,
Convincingly, charmingly
And confidently.

15790

The inner charm of our songs divine
Thrills none other than
God the Supreme Musician.

15791

God definitely considers
Singing spiritual songs
As the seeker's true meditation.

15792

When excellent singers sing,
Their delicate subtlety
Just melts God's Heart.

15793

Alas, the Supreme Musician
Cannot appreciate
Brilliant mental and vital
Musical jugglery.

15794

The Supreme Musician
Only appreciates music
That comes from the deepest depths
Of the inner world.

15795

What is the main representative
Of the soul?
None other than the psychic being.

15796

The psychic being
Is the most beautiful child
Inside the heart.

15797

God's Compassion-flooded Call
Comes for us, for all of us,
Every day.

15798

God's Call has come,
And now we must respond.
We must not do anything else.

15799

God the Supreme Musician
Blesses His unspiritual children
With earthly songs.

15800

God the Supreme Musician
Tells His spiritual children
That they are
His Heavenly songs.

15801

May the gods and goddesses
Bless my soulful songs
With celestial Compassion, Light
And Delight.

15802

To the desire-bound human beings
The Lord Supreme says,
"I am not your Guru,
But your slave."

15803

God's lament from Heaven:
"Those who worshipped Me,
Where have they gone?"

15804

God's lament from Heaven:
"Those who worshipped Me,
Why have they forgotten Me?"

15805

The Master's lament on earth:
"As soon as I am out of sight,
I am out of mind!"

15806

In every earthly
And Heavenly activity
Sincerity is of paramount importance.

15807

Capacity devotedly used
Is nothing other than
Climbing aspiration.

15808

If you do not use your divine capacity,
Then you lose God's confidence
In you.

15809

If you want to enjoy
A vacation from God,
Then you lose God's faith in you.

15810

God's Music-Life
Is part and parcel
Of His Manifestation-Life.

15811

Let us make God's Music-World
Part and parcel of our spiritual life
For our fastest inner progress.

15812

How to sing powerfully?
Think and feel
That you have just eaten voraciously.

15813

How to sing sweetly?
Practise, practise, practise
Many times daily.

15814

When delight comes,
Then power
Automatically comes.

15815

Delight
Without power
Is not delight.

15816

Each country has a soul.
The mind may not appreciate it,
But the heart will definitely
Appreciate it.

15817

Good-hearted people will see
That truth-seekers
Are trying to bring to the fore
The divine qualities of each country.

15818

The best way to serve a country
Is to bring to the fore
Its divine qualities.

15819

Life-energy is very good,
While restlessness is not.
They are two different things.

15820

Dynamism is needed,
But do not mistake restlessness
For dynamism.

15821

When we brave God's secret scoldings,
He openly appreciates, admires
And adores
Our faster than the fastest progress.

15822

When God breaks our ignorance-life
Into millions of pieces,
It is all His Compassion —
Nothing else.

15823

When God strikes us hard,
Always the greatest Blessing descends
From the highest Height.

15824

God's strictness brings about
The radical transformation
Of our consciousness.

15825

Tremendous interest is one thing,
But true capacity
Is another.

15826

The disciple's ardent prayer
And meditation
Increase the Master's capacity.

15827

The disciple's receptivity
Can and will
Increase the Master's capacity.

15828

O esraj, I am all gratitude to you
For bringing to the fore
The divine musician in me.

15829

O esraj, because of you
I claim myself to be an instrument
Of the Supreme Musician.

15830

There is no difference
Between our soulful songs
And our fruitful meditation.

15831

Be in a deep meditative consciousness
To feel God's Blessings, Joy and Pride In abundant measure.

15832

Let us be a constant and sleepless cry
For the complete satisfaction
Of our Lord Supreme.

15833

If your heart is melting
While you are singing
A soulful song,
Then it is coming
Not from the mind
But from the heart and soul.

15834

When you sing soulfully,
You will feel how high, deep
And sublime your consciousness is.

15835

If a seeker-singer imbibes
True divine nectar,
It will last and last.

15836

If we listen to the Supreme
Cheerfully,
We will make the fastest progress
In each and every field of life.

15837

If we make the fastest progress,
Naturally
We will be supremely and fully satisfied.

15838

If we are supremely and fully satisfied,
This satisfaction
Is nothing other than God Himself.

15839

If we do not have cheerfulness,
We are carrying a dead elephant
On our shoulders.

15840

God-songs definitely offer
Tremendous service
To our heart and life.

15841

God-songs
Are an express elevator
To the Supreme.

15842

Singing God-songs is like making
A telephone call on the hot line
Straight to the Supreme.

15843

Sing as part of your soulful meditation.
Automatically
Your divine qualities
Will come to the fore.

15844

God is desperately looking
And looking
For new seekers and servers
To work for Him.

15845

God is a beautiful Bird,
But His Wings are clipped
When He is not manifested on earth.

15846

Absorb the spirit
Of a divine song
To melt God's Heart.

15847

When you sing soulfully,
God feels
That He Himself is singing
In His own Heart-Garden.

15848

Each soulful song
Is nothing short of
A special session
Of meditation.

15849

A true Master not only
Talks about progress
But proves it in his own life.

15850

A true Master is truly pleased
When each disciple
Enters into his own depth.

15851

A true Master offers sincere love
Along with his sincere criticism
Of the disciple.

15852

To sing God-songs
With a sacred feeling
Is to have spontaneous joy.

15853

Sing with beauty, purity
And simplicity
To receive God's Heart
Of infinite Love
And God's Soul
Of immortal Blessings.

15854

Sing with self-giving and soulfulness
To receive God's divine Pride
In you.

15855

To achieve something
Momentous and fruitful,
Sleeplessly and breathlessly
We must invoke
The Compassion-Light
Of our Lord Supreme.

15856

To manifest our Lord Beloved Supreme,
Inwardly and outwardly we must invoke
His Blessing-Light.

15857

Every day God can and does
Easily create new souls
Because He sees that
There is plenty of room
For new plants
In His Universal Heart-Garden.

15858

At every moment
Countless miracles take place
In the inner world,
But we call them mere incidents.
Yet when something unusual takes place
In the outer world,
We call it a miracle!

15859

A miracle is nothing other than
The inner light coming to the fore
To increase our faith
In our spiritual life.

15860

A miracle increases our faith
In our oneness-life
With our Inner Pilot.

15861

When God Himself manifests something
That will increase our faith in Him,
We call this a supreme miracle.

15862

We must increase our faith in God
Every day, every hour, every minute,
To make the fastest progress.

15863

Our spiritual life
Unmistakably encompasses
The outer life.

15864

We have to accept the world
To illumine and transform it into
A choice instrument
Of our Lord Supreme.

15865

When our inner qualities
Come forward,
Our outer capacities fully blossom.

15866

Our inner qualities
Are nothing other than
God's unconditional Compassion.

15867

Our outer capacities
Are nothing other than
God's tremendous Satisfaction.

15868

The inner life of aspiration
And the outer life of dedication
Must go together, together, together.

15869

When the highest Will wants to act,
The outer life must develop
Receptivity.

15870

When we develop receptivity,
Soulfully and devotedly we can manifest
What we have deep within.

15871

Breathlessly and unconditionally
I offer my gratitude-heart to God
For choosing me to be
An instrument of His.

15872

Identify yourself with God's Will
To manifest His divine, supreme Will
In every action of your daily life.

15873

A spiritual seeker must give
Equal importance
To both body and soul.

15874

If we become physically strong
But spiritually weak,
We will have no peace of mind.

15875

If we become spiritually strong
But physically weak,
We will not be a fit instrument of God.

15876

When we pray and meditate,
We are not stealing God's Strength.
We are only establishing
A free access
To everything God has and is.

15877

A truth-lover and God-server
Strives for inner awakening
As well as for world peace.

15878

When we lose enthusiasm,
Lo,
Capacity disappears.

15879

When we maintain enthusiasm,
Lo,
Capacity is extended.

15880

No cry can forever
Remain unheard
In God's Heart-Sky.

15881

Definitely there can be roses
In my heart-garden
Without any destruction-mind-thorns.

15882

Do you want to waste your life?
If not, then keep not
Your God-surrender-bliss
Untasted.

15883

Today's sorrowful tears
Can tomorrow reveal
Blissful cheers.

15884

If you allow your mind's obscurity
To gain,
Then your heart's purity
Shall wane.

15885

Every day
You must declare war
On uncomely thoughts.

15886

Real surrender
Means
The heart's happiness-roar.

15887

Addiction to desire-life
Is nothing short of
Mind-affliction.

15888

O my Lord's Forgiveness deep,
Keep my heart cries, keep.

15889

Why do you malign me?
My aspiration has not resigned
To ignorance-night.

15890

If you are a true God-server,
You can never have
A God-hesitation-life.

15891

The mind-investigator
Cries.
The heart-examiner
Flies and flies.

15892

Failure-days
Get depression-wages
Unsought.

15893

Either today or tomorrow
Each and every Godward race
Will receive God's abundant Grace.

15894

A life of God-surrender
Is an umbrella against
All life-adversities.

15895

Each soulful song
Is a divine short-cut
To bring our boundless joy
To the fore
And lead us to our destination:
The Golden Shore.

15896

Where is peace?
Not in the blue skies;
Not in the vast ocean.
Peace is my next-door neighbour.

15897

Days and nights come to earth
To see us crying for God
And never to sigh.

15898

God invented me
To discover Him.

15899

My prayer-life
Knows how to devotedly lean
On God.

15900

My meditation-life
Knows how to quickly glean
From God.

15901

Mine is a bound mind
That always
Screams and screams.

15902

Mine is a free heart
That always
Beams and beams.

15903

What a rarity:
A mind of
Genuine clarity!

15904

Faith-trees
Have always
Extremely deep roots.

15905

Temptation-dances we learn
From our very old friend:
Vital.

15906

If we want to be at the Feet
Of our Lord Supreme,
Then we must voyage beyond
Our mind-horizon.

15907

A mind of God-remembrance
Is
A heart of happiness-life.

15908

Every day
I would like to give a peace concert
To sing and play
My God-gratitude-heart-songs.

15909

O seeker,
Run fast, very fast,
To join the God-Palace-servers.

15910

God keeps His Compassion-Eye
And His Forgiveness-Heart
Always in closest touch
With our lives.

15911

Man's philosophy of postponement
Keeps aside always
The ecstasy of enlightenment.

15912

No matter how serious our blunders are,
God does not allow us to remain
Beyond His Compassion-Reach.

15913

The divine heart
Is all identification.
The divine heart
Is telling us
To be inseparably one
With God's Vision
And God's Consciousness.

15914

My Lord loves
To sing and meditate
With my prayer-life.

15915

My Lord loves
To fly and fly
With my gratitude-heart.

15916

We love to play
With our ignorance-mind-armour.

15917

God loves to play
With our wisdom-heart-surrender.

15918

Only my God-gratitude-experiences
Can expedite
My Godward journey.

15919

I owe everything
To my Lord's Compassion-Eye,
Forgiveness-Heart
And Protection-Feet.

15920

Every day
I must try very hard
To settle
My aspiration-heart's gaze
Upon my Lord's Feet.

15921

God never denies anybody
The opportunity
To love Him, serve Him
And please Him.

15922

No, it is not at all
A wild rumour
That God's Arrival
Is imminent.

15923

If you have a loveless life,
Then you are bound to have
A Godless death.

15924

Pleasure-treasure
In any measure
Is dangerous and destructive.

15925

Each seeker is
God's secret Vision
And sacred manifestation.

15926

My soul came into the world
Not to investigate
But to liberate.

15927

When I pray and meditate,
I feel that I am only
An instrument.
There is some other power
That is coming to help me,
And that power is God's Grace.

15928

Contemplation is something
Far beyond the absolute vastness
Of meditation.
Contemplation is oneness itself.

15929

Inaction
Carries us back
To our past failures.

15930

Action
Carries us
To the dream-fulfilled realities.

15931

At long last
I have chased away
My mind's frustration-phantom.

15932

A life of peace
Enters into
A death of bliss.

15933

Disappointed expectation:
This is what
A human life is.

15934

May my heart-sky
Be totally ignorant
Of darkness-sadness-clouds.

15935

Every day I strive to become
A choice instrument
Of my Lord Supreme.

15936

All my divine qualities
Can blossom
If I have only
A God-gratitude-heart.

15937

To my greatest joy,
All my mind-clouds
Have disappeared today.

15938

Self-doubt
Lengthens the distance
Between man and God.

15939

Be not caught
Between a desire-mind
And an aspiration-heart.

15940

Without eagerness-legs
And eagerness-eyes,
Nobody can arrive
At the Destination.

15941

Be careful:
Even a fleeting ant-desire
Can destroy
Your spiritual life.

15942

May my heart live
A thousand God-gratitude-lives.

15943

God proudly applauds
Even a tiny progress-step
Of ours.

15944

Stop not
Until you have manifested
The final God-Victory.

15945

We must all volunteer
For our inner realisation
And outer perfection.

15946

When we do not aspire,
We do feel that
We are ruthlessly chained
To a huge bondage-rock.

15947

Love-devotion-piano
I can play well,
But not my surrender-piano.

15948

There can be no temptation
When God-remembrance
Is constant and powerful.

15949

O God-servers,
I am dying to see
Your breath.

15950

God does not keep in touch with me
Nowadays.
Why?
He tells me that
I have disobeyed Him
Much more than I can ever imagine.

15951

God pleads with each and every
Unaspiring human being
To hold aloft
A world-love-peace-banner.

15952

God-devotion
And God-reward
Are the obverse and reverse
Of the God-coin.

15953

You are not a true God-lover
If you give the world
Less than your very best.

15954

He who does not dare to go
Beyond the challenges
Of ignorance-night
Will never be able to prove
That he is a choice hero-warrior
Of God.

15955

Our wisdom-light
Is only a fraction
Of the unknown Delight
Of the Supreme.

15956

The mind-king
Most powerfully
Rules.

15957

The heart-queen guides
Not only self-givingly
But also sleeplessly.

15958

If you are a student of peace today,
Then tomorrow you can become
A master exponent of peace.

15959

The Master-disciple-oneness-bond
Is indeed
A very sacred one.

15960

What causes man
To turn towards God?
His longing for God's
Oneness-Delight.

15961

What causes man
To turn away from God?
His own self-importance.

15962

Self-sacrifice is self-sacrifice
Only when a oneness-heart-breath
Is unavailable.
If not, there is no such thing
As self-sacrifice.

15963

God does not want you to broadcast
Time and again
Your pitiful inadequacy.

15964

Your inner poverty is something
You are supposed to conquer
And not display.

15965

You must claim
Your unparalleled inheritance:
God-Compassion.

15966

A heart of soulful smile
Has indeed become
A forgotten experience
Of Paradise.

15967

What is loneliness
If not an unconscious,
Or even conscious,
Form of aloofness?

15968

God wants each and every seeker
To be fully conscious of the fact
That he is a spiritual giant
In the process of blossoming.

15969

O my mind,
Can you not develop
The habit of holiness
To be genuinely happy?

15970

If you have an indomitable faith
In your inner life,
You can challenge
The ferocious doubt-dragon
In your outer life.

15971

Discard immediately
Your mind-worn
Anxieties and worries.

15972

Discard immediately
Your heart-torn
Fears and doubts.

15973

We are running
Towards God
For His Newness.

15974

God is running
Towards us
For our uniqueness.

15975

Alas, the mind-desert
Is everywhere
To dry the heart's
Aspiration-stream.

15976

God is always reluctant
To visit
My mind-palace.

15977

God visits
My heart-cave
On a daily basis.

15978

May my cheerful
And powerful pilgrimage
To find God
Never halt.

15979

A real service-life
Never ends,
For meditation is there
To replenish it.

15980

God is asking me
To give my doubt-mind
The earliest expiration date.

15981

Alas, how frequently
Our God-attention,
God-concentration
And God-manifestation
Waver!

15982

It is blossoming
And not brooding
That is proper meditation.

15983

To hear God's Voice,
What we need is
An unshakable poise.

15984

My aspiration-heart
Is elated
At the very prospect of
God's imminent Arrival.

15985

As the mind knows
How to blindfold us,
Even so,
The heart knows
How to liberate us.

15986

My heart's God-faith teaches me
How to saturate my mind
Only with God-thoughts.

15987

The perfection of your life
Shall never blossom
If you are afraid of
Human society.

15988

When we are in deep meditation,
We realise that anything divine we do
Has a deathless essence.

15989

If I really want God's Advice,
Then my mind and I
Must immediately rise.

15990

Practise patience every day,
At every hour, every minute
And every second,
If you want world-harmony to blossom
In your life.

15991

If we have a purity-mind,
Angels can approach us easily,
From any angle.

15992

May happiness-flowers
Sing and dance
With my aspiration-hours.

15993

Call on God, call.
No matter where you are,
He is bound to give you
His All.

15994

Every day
My heart dances
To my Lord's
Forgiveness-Songs.

15995

May my heart-flower
Every morning float
On God's boundless
Compassion-Sea.

15996

Alas,
When will I have the capacity
To gaze
At my Beloved Supreme
With a love-devotion-
Surrender-filled eye?

15997

The ecstasy of the heart
Is of supreme necessity
In our God-invocation-life.

15998

Every morning
I hear my Lord's
Affection-Sweetness-Whispers
Telling me to fly upward,
Run forward and dive inward.

15999

God does not want me to separate
His holy Feet
From my heart-shrine.

16000

Tell me, God, am I the best?
"My child, who cares,
As long as I treasure you
In My Heart-Nest?"
