The street beggar

Return to the table of contents

1.

The final journey,
No, no!
A million times!

2.

An ever-blossoming voyage,
Yes, yes!
A billion times!

3.

When things go wrong,
God gives us the opportunity
To run towards Him more speedily
And more self-givingly
To have joy in His smiling Heart-Garden.

4.

If I find God
Inside a tiny drop,
Then, immediately,
God the Ocean
Becomes mine.

5.

Adversity
Purifies the mind
And strengthens the heart.

6.

Who is educated?
Not he who has read
Countless books,
But he who is fed
By God's Compassion-flooded Heart.

7.

When we pray on our knees,
God the Tree,
With flower-beauty
And fruit-nourishment,
Bends.

8.

We give so much importance
To the blackness of our mind.

9.

We have no time to pay attention
To the whiteness of our heart.

10.

Love Light more.
Night is bound
To disappear.

11.

The mind knows
How to dictate me.

12.

The heart knows
How to elevate me.

13.

When we look at life,
It frightens us.
When we look into life,
It surrenders.

14.

The depression-mountain
Blightens the mind.

15.

The humour-fountain
Lightens the mind.

16.

The most important thing in life
Is not possession
But transformation.

17.

Slow down, slow down,
If you really need
God's golden Crown.

18.

My eyes love
To see beauty.

19.

My heart loves
To become Beauty,
God-Beauty.

20.

Battlefield-victory
Does not last.

21.

Heart-field-victory
Forever lasts.

22.

We are such fools.
We want to know what life has
And not what life is.

23.

The human in us
Works to live.

24.

The divine in us
Lives to work,
God's Work.

25.

God will share with us
His almighty Will-Power
If we dare to control
The inhuman in us.

26.

Work-retirement
Must not be
Life-retirement.

27.

The doctor knows
How to create fear.

28.

The Master knows
How to blossom cheer.

Life begins
Not when we think of time,
But when we become
The Lord of time.

30.

Faith is the medicine
For the mind-malady.

31.

Love is the vitamin
For the life-comedy.

32.

Leadership sinks.
Friendship sails.

33.

The blunders of the past
Must be kept behind us
And not ahead of us.

34.

Do not continue to fret.
Try to forget.
Happiness guaranteed!

35.

There are countless exercises.
The most difficult exercise
Is self-giving.

36.

Why not say it?
God is all yours.

37.

Why not do it?
Touch and remain
At God's Feet.

38.

The Compassion-Eye
Descends unconditionally.

39.

The aspiration-heart
Ascends swiftly.

40.

The heartiest smile
Is
The strongest power.

41.

We strengthen
The difficult people
By thinking of them.

42.

We disarm
The difficult people
By placing them
At the Feet of God.

43.

Until God's unconditional Grace
Descends,
I must be responsible
For my own fate.

44.

A strange request:
God, give me
What You have.

45.

A spontaneous request:
God, take me
And my all.

46.

The outer loneliness
Needs friends
And acquaintances.

47.

The inner loneliness
Needs only God
And nobody else.

48.

God wants me to live
Not on borrowed time.

49.

God wants me to live
Inside
His hallowed Eternity.

Aspiration says:
"I shall do it."

51.

Dedication says:
"I am doing it."

52.

"I have already done it."

An outer fruit.

An inner seed.

The human artist
Paints
The outer world.

56.

The divine artist

  Dreams

Of the inner world.

57.

God sleeplessly tells me
That He wants to be
The prisoner of my love.

58.

The God who tells me
To pray
Is the same God who asks me
To take time to play.

59.

Life
Is not a series
Of disappointments.

60.

Life
Is a daily
God-appointment.

61.

Future
Is not darkness.

62.

Future
Is God-oneness.

63.

I do not want
My life
To go my way.

64.

I am choosing,
Once and for all,
One way:
God's Way.

65.

There is only one race:
The masked God-Face.

For me,
Nothing can be sweeter
And purer
Than my God-starvation-heart.

67.

Success is
Dollar-power.

68.

Progress is
God-Shower.

69.

God frequently comes
To my heart-emptiness.

70.

God never comes
To my mind-loneliness.

71.

The mind's constant question:
Why?

72.

The heart's immediate answer:
Why not?

73.

Yesterday
God cried for me.
He cried for my perfection.

74.

Today
I am crying for God.
I am crying for God's Satisfaction.

75.

From tomorrow,
Smilingly,
God and I will live
Only for each other.

76.

When I keep my eyes closed
And pray,
I feel that God is for me.

77.

When I keep my eyes half-open
And meditate,
I am absolutely certain
That I am all for God.

78.

Prayer
Is the life-seed.

79.

Meditation
Is the life-plant.

80.

Contemplation is the life-tree
That produces
Flower-beauty-enjoyment
And
Fruit-nourishment-satisfaction.

81.

Final earth-departure
Has no extension.

82.

God wants me
To count His Smiles first.
Only then
Will He count my tears.

83.

Gratitude-virtue
Is yet
An unborn reality.

84.

Disobedience
Is not the humiliation
Of the Master.

85.

Disobedience
Is the self-annihilation
Of the disciple.

86.

God's immediate Choice
Is the heart that bleeds
For humanity's smiles.

87.

The mind
Is the usual
Cloud-lover.

88.

The heart
Is the spontaneous
Star-enjoyer.

89.

Perfection
Is the sleepless
Self-examination.

90.

Satisfaction
Is the breathless
God-invocation.

91.

God pleads with me:
"My child,
Be true to yourself!"

92.

We must pay attention
To our imperfections —-
If not, sooner than at once
They will multiply.

93.

A thought-minus mind
Is
A soul-plus will.

94.

When I love God,
I let things happen
In God's Way.

95.

When I love myself,
I make things happen
In my way.

96.

The mind-thorn
Is
Extremely dangerous.

97.

The heart-rose
Is
Supremely precious.

98.

God tells me
That my half world-dedication
Equals
My full God-aspiration.

99.

God tells me repeatedly
Not to take His Work away.
His Work is to change the world,
And my work
Is to love the world.

100.

Each smile
Is the beauty
Of a new heart.

101.

Each tear
Is the fragrance
Of a new life.

102.

God wants me
To complete
My illumination-task.

103.

God does not want me
To compete
With the rest of the world
In the battlefield of life.

104.

With each hope
I walk
Towards God's Palace.

105.

With each promise
God runs
Towards my heart-temple.

106.

Patience, patience, patience!
Patience
Is the ultimate victory.

107.

Everybody hates darkness,
But how many are willing
To invoke Light?

108.

If you are great,
That means
You know how to talk.

109.

If you are good,
That means
You know how to listen.

110.

If you are perfect,
That means your silence-sound
Is the answer.

111.

The life that has no tears
Cannot near God.

112.

You say that the world
Is full of wrong forces.
Unfortunately,
Your own mighty contribution
Cannot remain unnoticed.

113.

The eyes can see the world,
But the heart alone
Can become the world.

114.

Do not stop
Being an all-lover.
Do not stoop
To being a supremacy-hunger.

115.

Man's mind
Builds houses.
God's Heart
Makes homes.

116.

Today's street beggar
Shall become tomorrow
The keeper
Of God's Heart-Door.
