I Saw, I Felt and I Became -- An Offering to Elijah A Alexander Jnr
A Love offering to my spiritual brother Elijah
Look at the smile,
On the face of daybreak this morning,
She lights up my joy.
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.

~Awakening The Inner Light ~
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.

Quote from Sri Chinmoy
"Only two miracles are worth seeing:
The miracle of loving
And the miracle of becoming." -Sri Chinmoy
How often do you feel the moments of this great Peace?
