THE RICHES OF GODS GRACE

His earth-life is feasting
On the riches of Gods Grace.
His prayer to God:
Lord Supreme, keep me singing
Your Victory-Song
As I proceed along the road of Eternity.
My Lord Supreme,
No more do I see lifes dreary waste.
No more do I see lifes countless thorns.
I see only my strength, my beauty, my souls joy
And my Eternitys All.

YOU HAVE FORGIVEN ME

Lord Supreme, You have forgiven me.
You have forgiven the teeming lapses
Of Your servant.
I am always intoxicated by beautys love.
But You have made me immaculate.
My gratitude-heart I have offered to You
And You have offered me Your Promise-Light.
You have accepted the animal in me, the human in me,
The divine in me as Your very own.

To my old friend, my ex-friend,
Disbelief?

IMAGINATION AND REASON

Imagination does not
Care for reason.

For imagination-wings.
The philosopher in me cries
For reason-sword.

MIND-TRAVELLER, HEART-TRAVELLER

O my mind-traveller,
You cannot go very far.

The length and breadth of the world
Is too narrow for you,
For you far transcend
The length and breadth of the world.

BETWEEN PUNISHMENT AND FORGIVENESS

Between punishment and forgiveness
What do I want?
I want both, if necessity demands.
If by punishing me, O Lord,
You can expedite my lifes journey
Toward Your Golden Shore,
Then punish me by all means.
I want not Your Compassion-Forgiveness-Light.

DONT INSULT GOD ANY MORE

Dont dare insult God any more.

The eternal Lover Supreme.

I MISUSED INFINITY

There was a time when Eternity was mine.
Alas,
Now I have only the ephemeral.
There was a time when Infinity was mine.
Alas,
Now I am forced to be satisfied with the finite.
I misused Eternity;
Therefore Eternity has left me.
I misused Infinity;
Therefore Infinity has left me.
Now
I am misusing the finite;
Therefore the finite moment also will leave me soon.

FROM AGE TO AGE

From each age to each age, O Lord,

THE HEART OF MY GRATITUDE-SEA

Lord Supreme, Absolute Supreme,
Father Supreme, Beloved Supreme,
With Your infinite Bounty I started
To compete with my previous achievements.
I have far surpassed my previous achievements.
Now the golden fruit
I place at Your Feet.
In me, through me, You have achieved
This humanly unbelievable achievement.
But divinely, it was not only possible but inevitable.
This is not a miracle, O Lord,
This is just a reality-experience
Which inspires me to transcend
What I have
And what I eternally am.
O Beloved Supreme,
In absolute Silence-Light
To You I offer
The heart of my gratitude-sea,
The breath of my oneness-sky.
