"...Each birthday is a petal of a flower. The flower, petal by petal, blossoms and then it is ready to be placed at the inner shrine in the aspiring heart..." -Sri Chinmoy
Bluebells and orchids sing to me of seasonal spring.
Butterflies prepare for the blossoming aromas,
Heralding the advent of another glorious dawn.
The wondrous intimacy in a garden of Light,
Is so reminiscent of the sanctity of birth!
Yet the mother’s joy is full of struggle,
Interlaced with affection and tender embrace.
“Push!” The midwife entreats: “Push!”
The gift of life glows as the glint of hyacinths,
An immaculate sweetness of sacrificial delight.
Sweet mother divine! Your fortitude,
A microcosmic prototype, of the macrocosm of God.
Your sacred surrendering soulfulness,
Given to you by the Weaver Himself.
Your dutiful life, doth from the father
Take away the whip, thus bearing silently,
The sorrows of ingratitude.
Sweet mother divine, all praise to the Potter
Who molded you, into the plenitude of Love Divine.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 7th May, 2018.
~ Awakening The Inner Light ~
"The Supreme sends Eternity, Infinity and Immortality down into the world to feed His divine child, the soul. Eternity serves the breakfast, Infinity the lunch and Immortality the dinner. Eternity tells the soul where it is, Infinity tells the soul how far to go, Immortality tells the soul when and where to stop..." -Sri Chinmoy
Wisdom-Quote from Sri Chinmoy
"Each birthday is a new awakening. Each birthday is a new hope. Each birthday is a new promise. Each birthday is a new fulfillment..." -Sri Chinmoy
"Each birthday is a tune, a melody of the universal music. Each individual is also a melody of the universal music. The seeker grows and glows in his music, which he can hear with his soulful ears... the soul needs to climb like music, soulful music. The soul, when it climbs, knows no boundaries, no religious barriers, no political boundaries. It is all freedom, freedom within and freedom without..." -Sri Chinmoy
A very Happy Mother's Day past, now and the ones to come
Belated Happy Notes
Note: So sorry I'm late, my dear Ann. If it was not power-cuts, then it was 'necessary' distractions and I wanted to do a loving piece.
While we always, always celebrate birthdays, I have known Sri Chinmoy to bring it forward or backward. It is a bit like meditation. We feel that we have done everything right and we are going to have a great one, but we don't. We feel that we have done everything wrong and yet we have a great meditation.
In the same way, we do not necessarily feel great on our birthday, but can feel better on other days. No hard and fast rules here.
A mother's selflessness and sacrifice; her Love and fortitude are perhaps the closest thing to the divine. I know of your care and concern for your loving family. I have tried to compliment both glorious events. God bless you all.
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to You. We love your soul's rainbow-dreams promise-play
Birthday's and Mother's Day
