Each birthday  
Can be a rebirth for us
To be in God’s Presence.

~

My heart longs to unravel
The mystery of rebirth;
Therefore my Lord Supreme
Tells me to do two things:
He tells me to cry with earth’s
excruciating pangs  
And smile with Heaven’s
Life-immortalising Ecstasy.

~
 
My Lord, I am praying to You  
Only for one thing:  
My enthusiasm-rebirth.

~

A dangerous and poisonous    
Ignorance-snake  
Has bitten you mercilessly.  
Therefore, it is impossible for you  
To witness the rebirth of your life’s  
Sweetness-fruitfulness-beauty.

~

What determines our rebirth?    
God’s Vision-Eye
And our soul’s God-acceptance-delight.

~

His daily rebirth 
In the spiritual life  
Is not his mental delusion
But his psychic realisation.

~

Every day I pray to God  
To grant me the rebirth
Of my devotion-heart.

~
