Inadequate Translations. A Soulful Offering to Shauna L Bowling
Wisdom From The Master
"Not the power to conquer others, but the power to become one with others, is the ultimate power." - Sri Chinmoy
Words are inadequate translations, of the
Mystery we are, wrapped tightly in shadows,
Awaiting the fullness of the sun.
They say we must not eat on holy months,
Yet the monk Sakya Muni, ate from the
Hands of a beautiful woman and attained Nirvana.
Ignorance is the knight of Love’s mercy,
Knowledge is the awakening of Her dawn.
You have placed thorns on my temptations,
Added the wafts of flowers to soothe the pain.
It is Your Love that adorns this orchard;
Your sweetness drips, like sugarcane juice.
I speak of ‘free will’, but I am at times compelled,
Into this river of sorrowful wine.
O Light, what pushes me, into this mire of darkness?
I’m doing this to no one, but only to myself.
There is a blossoming Lotus, in the profundity of
The Heart. No need for suffering, as Love is there.
I wish for that intimacy, so as to explode with loving.
Yet I am that stray dog in the neighbour’s garden,
Unknowingly calling, upon Love’s concern.
My Sweetheart, I am your fullness and Your emptiness;
Your ray of lustre, in the perennial sky.
In the serene stillness of a billion stars, we are One.
There is a kiss that I have been waiting for, all my life;
Now the moon has appeased this agony, with its supernal Light.
Wisdom from the Master
“Complete and total perfection will come about only when we feel that our perfection is no perfections as long as the rest of humanity remains imperfect.” -Sri Chinmoy
“Your heart will be shattered by sorrow if you force it to live in tomorrow's ephemeral imagination - world instead of in today's eternal reality – now.” -Sri Chinmoy.
