Take me to The Land of Birthless Bliss

Here I sit, on the red flames of my memory,

Dreaming of the tenderness of yesterday.

Singing love songs to the daffodils,

I blow kisses to Your rose-red lips.


My Sweetheart, the agony of longing is intense!

Drowning the very flames of Hades,

I offer myself in sacrifice,

At Thy endearing feet of Love.


I pined for You in my solitude;

Yearned for the sugar of Thy gaze.

As You rode on the crimson moonlight,

A raiment cradled by the sun.


Come, my Queen, let me drink,

From the sweet gaze of Thy enchantment.

Quelling the agony of fire in my soul,

Take me to the land of birthless Bliss.



Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 19th November, 2018


~Awakening The Inner Light~

The Rapturous Wine of Heaven's Gate

Love said: “Tell me about sugar, O Lantern,

Speak of the mellifluous portals of Heaven’s lustre.”

“That’s easy,” responded the Lantern.

“I love drinking vintage and

The wine-press makes me drunk.

As for the sugarcane juice, my throat becomes honey,

From the constant trickle of sweetness;

I bathe in an aroma, of succulence divine.”


“O Lantern, there is a wine made from another

Vineyard, drinking of which you’ll never thirst.

When the drapes are drawn and windows open,

The scarlet moon pours its melliferous sweetness,

Into a vessel inebriated by its Light.

It is then that the soul swoons, kissing the juices

Of fresh grapes, pruned and

Seduced like wine, by the radiant energy of the sun.


“Wow!” Responded the Lantern.

“What is this taste of which you speak?

Let me die to the mundane, offer myself

In sacrifice for this golden juice.

When good men die, some wives

Sheds bitter tears, lament their passing for 40 days!

How much more beautiful must be this Love,

That I now wish to lament for a thousand summers?"


“When it is cold and wintry”, said the Seeress.

“We play like children by the fireside.

Shooting off our firecrackers,

We laugh and giggle with frivolous fun.

Yet the fire of the Heart is a constant melody,

Ceaselessly beating the drum of victory in our core.

There’s neither a draft nor the harsh face of winter,

But the eloquence of robins, singing

‘I love you’s’ to the lamps of wisdom,

Sweeping clean the darkness of the Heart.


“Aye, my Beloved”, said the Lantern.

“Show me the abode of this supernal cellar!

I thought I knew my wine;

Took pride in the quality of its taste.

Now I know the Bliss of boundless raptures,

Blowing their conches of deathless victory,

In the deep profundity of my Soul.”

        Yes. In an esoteric sense, the conch is symbolic of God's victory ... the conquest of good over evil; Light over darkness. A bit like Divali, the Festival of Lights.

        In reality, like God, the soul is both a birthless and deathless spark of the infinte Supreme. Thank you Alicia. Joy to you.

        My dear Brother, I have only one way to respond to this beauty...

        And the Spirit of the One spoke

        with soundless words of many colours:

        "Lantern, my beloved son,

        I Am so content of you, because

        you can see the Grace in my acts

        you can hear the echoes of my thoughts

        you can smell the aroma of blossoming Heart

        you can touch my ethereal face

        you can taste the sweetness of my kiss

        you can love through my Love

        you can serve with every breath

        you can feel that sacrifice is a rebirth

        but, most of all, my son

        I Am happy, yes, I Am happy

        because you can help others to see Me

        through the birthless Light of your Heart

        and the mystical colours of your words!" Sean Dragon - 23/11/2018

        Gratitude!
