For the Spirit of Creation by Manatita. A Soulful Offering to Li-Jen Hew
Wisdom from Sri Chinmoy
"God originated Himself from His own Silence.
God was One, but He wanted to become many...
God is the tree and we are the leaves of the tree, God is the ocean and we are tiny drops of water. He is vast, but we have our constant oneness with God, just as the leaves can claim the tree as their very own and the drops can claim the ocean as their very own. ..."
The tall, sky-blue painted cupboard opens invitingly,
Adjacent to a mirror, hanging silently on the wall.
I gaze at its reflection, note the shimmering glow
Of the mosquito net, hanging from the ceiling.
I feel its safety, but there are no mosquitos here,
Only the security of creamy rectangular walls.
The white-tiled bathroom, awaits our evening waltz,
But my duvet feels reassuringly comfortable.
The white sheets smell of the diligence,
Of the meticulous maid, going the extra mile,
In her desire to keep me happy.
I do my ablutions, pay homage to deities on my shrine.
Somewhere in the distance, the sound of traffic carries,
All a part of the game, of the Spirit of Creation.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 19th June 2018.
~Awakening The Inner Light ~
Song of Kabir
"You are in us, and we are in You,
Each being distinct, yet ever united.
You are the tree, the seed, and the cell;
You are the flower, the fruit, and the shade;
You are the sun, the light, and the lighted;
You are the manifold form of infinite space;
You are the breath, the word, and the meaning;
You are the limit and the limitless.
You are the Immanent Mind in us;
You are the Supreme Soul within the soul.
Blessed are all who see You." -Kabir
Are you comfortable with the oneness of life?
