Wisdom from the Master
"Yesterday I was clever
that is why
I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise
That is why
I am changing myself." - Sri Chinmoy
Today, I take much solace in the cliché,
That absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Your sweet face emanates a bewildering beauty;
Your cute cheeks glow with a thousand smiles.
Long nights I spend at Love’s window,
Embracing the magic of Thy allure.
Permeating my emotions, my breath quickens
From the memories of intimate moments.
Last Spring, I brought You a bouquet of white
Roses; watched Your gaze lit up. I noted your
Cheeks glow; the candescent smile from head
To chin. Now that I have recaptured this
Magic, I travel within, to embrace Thy Heart.
My joy soars like an eagle; my tears become
A hundred veils of satin, to serenade,
Like a song-bird, the radiant lustre of Thy Being.
On the golden thread of our memories, I climb on
Green hills and Catskill Mountains, walk on sandy
Beaches beneath coconut palms; swim in aqua-marine
Waters, from the realm of Bliss in which we dine.
At dawn I delight in Your radiance from the rising sun,
My gaze fixed on Thy splendour, recollecting the
Rainbows of great moments, inseparable and timeless.
Come! Let me take You on a journey this night,
We shall not open the curtains; the venetian blinds.
I’m intoxicated, and the natural hallucinogens
Of drunkenness -- this nectar of ethereal
Ecstasy --keeps me in trance from Thy embrace.
I wish to soar without wings, to dine in Your
Kingdom of enchantment, offering this Heart
Of devotion, to Your Breath divine.
Now I hear the melody of birds, as You whisper
Magical symphonies to my soul. Your lute
Cascades a sweet scent, like lavender flowers,
Permeating the meadow of my existence.
The flame of Thy effulgence burns within,
And I’m drunk with Love. I soar on the lapis
Lazuli of moonlights; of firefly stars, and walk
Without feet … to drink the wine from Thy Chalice.
- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 4th September, 2020.
Wisdom from the Master
"Run, run, my heart!
Run extremely fast.
The voices of the past." - Sri Chinmoy
"Peace reveals the absolute
Excellence of human life." - Sri Chinmoy
