      I don't own even one book of Guru's series "Ten-Thousand Flower-Flames". in the past I found them a little difficult to read and chose other books first. Now that they are available in our centre library (for what I am very grateful) I am reading a book per day and write down some selected favourites.

      The following poems are from part 14:

      1323. O MY SOUL, SMILE!

      O my soul, smile!
      Smile once more.
      Your smile is my only tranquilizer
      With no side-effects.
      O my soul, smile!

      1325. YOUR WISE WILLINGNESS-HEART

      Since God can do more
      With your life
      Than you can,
      You must not hesitate
      And offer God immediately
      Your wise willingness-heart.

      1335. DO NOT THINK OF HUMAN GRIEF

      Do not think of human grief!
      Think only of your eagerness to transform it
      Into Divinity's divine Joy-Flames.

      1340. THE SNARE OF IMPERFECTION

      The snare of imperfection
      Is strong.
      The snare of unwillingness to change
      Is even stronger.

      1368. DESIRE IS A GAME

      Desire is a game.
      Even when you win
      You badly lose.

      Aspiration is a game.
      Even when you lose
      You gloriously win.

      1371. YOUR SMILE OF SORROW

      Your smile of sorrow
      Makes you cry
      Like a frightened child.
      Your cry of love
      Makes you smile
      Like an enlightened God.

      1377. A GOOD HEART

      A good heart has
      The power of the sun
      And
      The beauty of the moon.

      A good heart is
      A special Grace of God
      And
      A special face of man.

      1390. LOVE ITSELF IS WISDOM

      Wisdom may not produce love,
      But love itself is wisdom.
      A true wisdom
      Is satisfaction in oneness-perfection.
