I HAVE SIMPLY NO IDEA

I have simply no idea
What God is going to do
With my faithless friendship,
My heartless life,
My hopeless heart.

.

HE HAS TO SURRENDER

He has experienced the beauty
Of his inner life.
Therefore he is happy.
He has now to surrender
The ugliness of his outer life
To His Beloved Supreme
So that both he and his Lord
Can be happy.

,

ENTHUSIASM BEGINS THE JOURNEY

Enthusiasm begins the journey.
Determination continues the journey.
Surrender completes the journey.
Gratitude not only fulfils the journey
But also pleases God
In God’s own Way.

,

A PRECIOUS TRUTH-DIAMOND

God loves me unconditionally.
This most precious truth-diamond
I shall carry every day
To my Lord Supreme.

,

THE GOLDEN CHAIN

My heart of gratitude
Is the golden chain
That binds my life
To the infinite life
Of the Absolute Supreme.

,

WHAT DOES FAILURE DO?

What does failure do?
Failure improves my life,
Strengthens my mind
And heightens my heart.

,

EACH SOULFUL EFFORT

Each soulful effort
And each resolute action
In the countless incidents
Of man’s human life and divine life
Is proudly treasured
By the Absolute Supreme Himself.

,

RISE LIKE A CANDLE FLAME

Drag not your past with you.
With soulful thoughts
Rise like a pure candle flame
to touch Heaven’s Perfection-Beauty.
