Author:

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

Wisdom-quotes from Sri Chinmoy

"Truth is in all, but Love is all." -Sri Chinmoy.

"He who loves never grows old.

God is a shining example." -Sri Chinmoy.

"“Real freedom is the inseparable oneness with the universe. There you are growing together. You are achieving something and you are seeing that the entire world is achieving it at the same time.” -Sri Chinmoy.

my-love-and-i-are-absolutely-one

The wind blows wherever it wills,

But while those in the sun caress its warmth,

Others prefer the chill of winter;

Feels an affinity to the breeze.

The ignorant soul, is like one

Lost in the harshness of winter,

But the receptive vessel is like a Lover,

Exposed to the sweet rays of the sun.

“Christ! Christ!” Shouted the zealous.

“Have we not cast out demons in Your name?

We preached that You are the only way;

Scorned the Heathen with another God?”


“O my sweet children,” entreated the Christ.

“Why do you separate my Creation?

Just as the seed and its embryo are inseparable,

So too, my Love and I are absolutely One.

Boxes and confinements, lead to disharmony

And taint the soul.

But the Light nourishes the earth,

Which in turn produces succulent fruits.

O Lantern, serve like the rays of the sun;

Offer in humility, like the branches of the earth.

Lo! You want Peace?

Lo! You’ve found abiding Joy.”


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 4th February, 2018.

Meeting Pope John Paul V1, 1972

Wisdom-quotes from Sri Chinmoy

"Love radiates the life of harmony,

Brightens the joy-consciousness,

And sharpens the sword of intuition." -Sri Chinmoy.

“God was one, but He wanted to become many. When He became many, He did not lose His oneness. The dance of God’s unity in multiplicity and multiplicity in unity we call God’s eternal Game. “ - Sri Chinmoy.

Wisdom-quotes from Sri Chinmoy

“If you feel oneness for even a fraction of a second, you will feel that your human life is totally transformed and immortalised. Pray to the Supreme to grant you conscious, constant and inseparable oneness with Him. Then the question of separativity will automatically be solved.” -Sri Chinmoy

A very inspiring poem, keep them rolling.

BUT, "my love and I" should equal to the whole while one is only half. See my "Existence Explained Via Numbers" for the explanation.

Aloha

Ioannis Arvanitis from Greece, Almyros on February 05, 2018:

As my beloved teacher used to say: "You cannot measure the age of a soul by earth years, only with love offerings. The more love you offer, the younger you get!"

So, my bro, I think that you are a teenager!
