A Love offering to my spiritual brother Elijah

Look at the smile,

On the face of daybreak this morning,

She lights up my joy.

Moonlight streams,

Through the twilight of tomorrow,

It is a tapestry in making.

Do you smell the fragrance of rosebuds?

They whisper to the sweetness of the Heart.

I saw the artistry of the gardener,

Weaving a calligraphy on his lawn,

My Soul was filled, with the wonder of Love.

I saw the Cosmos, like a candela of glowing lanterns,

Kissing the earth with Her radiant Light.

I became inebriated, drunk from a rapture of Delight.

Go With The Hunger of a Child ... and Cry!

Why carry a load of scriptures on the Path?

It is only seeking,

The spontaneous joy of a toddler’s Heart.

Why let the mind drift, on a jungle of desires?

Lantern knows, that the Light of Love,

Will only dawn, when the fire of longing

Has pierced the soul.

O Seeker, the Beloved awaits you,

With tender arms and beauty unparalleled,

At the unblemished gates of Paradise.

Put down your books; your doctrines…

Go with the hunger of a child … and cry!

Lo! The gates of the Beyond are flung wide open,

And a supernal banquet prepared for your arrival.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 21st November, 2017.

The miracle of loving

And the miracle of becoming." -Sri Chinmoy
