Food for Thought

“Be sincere in your thoughts, be pure in your feelings. You will not have to run after happiness. Happiness will run after you.” Sri Chinmoy

A great man once said that we are all doing time. Not the yogic way of expressing this wisdom, but yes, each soul has its own troubles and its thoughts centres around itself. This struggle is necessary as it encourages us to reach out to the One, in order to find Peace … to re-discover our true Nature.

We are all lovers by character, only we do not know whom to Love. This quest, awakens in us, the need for fulfillment; the inner hunger to know our true Source.

A free verse Sonnet

O Friend of the Eternal, Come!

O Friend of the Eternal, come!

You are so beautiful today!

Awake in Thy bewilderment,

Last night I dared not sleep.

There in this garden of Lovers,

The moon and stars held a banquet in my Spirit.

Today I am intoxicated;

See nothing but grandeur at my feet.

Sweet bewildering Light!

How do I hold this paragon of rhapsody?

O Lantern, close the door of the intellect;

Open wide the Heart’s purity-window.

Let the Light of the sun radiate within,

Spinning the wheels of nectar in thy soul.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th July 2018.

Love Turned me Around. A regular Sonnet

In school to learn from the mentor called Life,

I bow in respect of its decisions.

Dark shadows within me, causing my strife,

A rose encountering numerous thorns.

Calling! A relentless pull of desires,

Their scorching flame tugs at my temptations.

No moonlit stars or musical lyres,

I am the prey of my own creations.

O Love, enfold me close to Thy glory--,

This great pageantry of numberless flares.

Erase the appeal of this sad story;

Fill me with ecstasy throughout my years.

Some saw a destiny bearing me down,

With effortless Grace, Love turned me around.
