O Light, my Beautiful Light.


You have come to me,

From beyond the craters of the sun.

Above the shimmering waves,

You kiss my breath,

Pull on the memories of my yesterdays.

Swinging on the sweet pillars of eternity,

I lie serene, on the lap of the Unseen.

O Light, I am the music You create;

You are the sparkle that dances,

At the core of this perennial Love.

I glide, like an eagle, in the bliss of Thy infinitude,

Soar with the cluster of birds,

As they illuminate the sky.

O Light, my beautiful One, Come!

I travel through Time;

Watch Your twinkling star,

As it guides the Magi to the child in swaddling clothes,

Lying in a Manger.

High in the chimney You lie,

Adorning the rays of Santa Claus,

As You prepare him for the Christmas Joy.

I hear Your jingling bells, sparkling in the twilight,

Feel Your sweet thrill, dancing in the Spirit of Christ.

You reveal Thyself, in the immaculate purity

Of our Lord, paving a path of effulgence,

For me to find my way home.

O Light, my Beautiful Light, Come!

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th December, 2017.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~

Quote from Manatita

"What is Light? the polestar pierces the darkness of the night and illuminate the sky, much like the flame of a candle does to a darkened room. So too,the dark night of the soul awakens to its inherent lustre, when it unites once more with the Beloved and become One. Yet before this happens, phases of this sweet spark, appear as beacons to encourage the soul."-Manatita

Wisdom of srichinmoy


Quote from Manatita

"The radiant glow of outer light, is symbolic of the Light within each soul, striving to manifest, in myriad ways, the same one Truth." -Manatita

    It sure would Ann, it sure would. That's why am here. But there are a scattered few of different Faiths everywhere.

    Thank you so much! I like your teacher's mantra. Lol. Gratitude.

    Lovely lifting lines to reflect the spirit of Christmas which should exist all the year round of course; sadly, it doesn't seem to. Brings to mind the teacher's mantra - 'must try harder'! If enough people did, it would work.

    Thank you, my Sister Dabby.

    Permit me to say that you seem a young woman with much promise. Stay vigilante! Do not get caught up by modern consumerism and desires. They are very alluring. Avoid the things that make you weak, like poison.Work hard, exercise, strive to be happy. I bid you much peace. Gratitude ...

    Ah, Alicia.

    You're so kind. Don't you like the first? It offers promise. For me, at least, as I have had many of these charming 'sparks' which appear to encourage the soul.

    The one you like is saying what my Guruji says beneath it, only in a different way. Thank you so much!!

    If I know your Heart - and I'm not saying that you are wrong - then I must be doing something right, eh? (sweet chuckle).

    Yes, I totally understand the Saviour/devotee relationship. I have a few friends here like that. I applaud all of you. By the way, I gave a friend two books some years ago, which you may also like. Available on Amazon. God knows that you have enough to do. Still, chose at least one.

    The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis and The Practice of The Presence of God by Brother Lawrence. There's a third one, yet another gem by Sadhu Sundar Singh called At The Feet of The Master.

    So happy that you came and so happy that you liked the Hub. Have a great weekend.

    Thank you so much!!
