Why was I born, God, if not to
find Thee ?
When the unreality of life pushes against my heart, its door opens to the reality.
The past was my dream, the present is my play, and the future will be my plan.
I reach Thee before my feet can
reach Thy dwelling place,
I was perfected by Heaven, but am limited by the earth.
Can anyone break me ? No. By
doing so he may as well prepare to break God.
I draw all my strength from my humility.
A tongue of flame rises from
every wound of my heart,
The rapidity of my walk the imagination cannot follow.
People often ask me
questions which I cannot very well answer in words,
By every hurt or harm one causes me, one only makes me know him better.
I came as I was made to come; I live as life allows me to live; but I will be what I wish to be.
With every pinprick a drop of
blood comes out of my heart,
I have not come to teach those
who consider themselves teachers.
When my heart is perturbed, it upsets the whole universe.
When my heart is asleep, then both worlds fall into a deep slumber.
The whole creation wakes up with the wakening of my heart.
When the shell of my heart breaks, pearls become shattered around.
My heart attains self-sufficiency by eating its own flesh and drinking its own blood.
I tremble at the sight of
the task that hath been given to me,
What the world calls success is to me like a doll's wedding.
I am the wine of the holy
sacrament, my very being is intoxication.
My heart drinks its own tears and puts them out as pearls.
I prefer failure to success gained by falsehood.
I am what I am; you make me what you will make me; but I become what I wish to become.
The true exaltation comes to me
from the insults I have to endure in life,
Many underestimate the greatness
of the Cause,
The Message is a call to those
whose hour has come to awake,
How can a man claim to be a
teacher and at the same time be sane ?
The essence of today's Message is balance.
You are my life, it is in You
that I live.
You are in me, and in You do I
Why, O my feeling heart
Death is my life indeed;
Some did say that I knew
Some on hearing my words
Some asked:"What mystery he
Some said:"He's a man as we are
Before You judge my actions,
Before my eyes are covered,
Before I wake from slumber,
Before my work is over,
