Wisdom from the Master

"As long as your Heart remains,

An ever-mounting Aspiration-flame,

It makes no difference,

What your weaknesses are." -Sri Chinmoy


My Heart spills …

Like ink on blots of paper,

Shedding her tears,

Upon the breath of God.

Ticker … ticker … ticker,

She spins her emotions like rain,

Falling copiously

Upon the wings of time.

The Light of another virgin dawn,

Pierces through her inner sanctum,

Glistening in radiant garments,

To ignite the lustre of the soul.

Heralding the promise of a New Jerusalem,

Love kisses my core, carrying the banner of an awakened sunrise.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 28th June, 2018.

~Awakening The Inner Light ~


Wisdom from Sri Sarada Devi

"I tell you one thing—if you want peace, do not find fault with others. Rather see your own faults. Learn to make the world your own. No one is a stranger, my child; the whole world is your own...

One must live carefully. Every action produces its results. It is not good to use harsh words towards others or be responsible for their suffering...

One’s sensitivity is lost if one has no control over one’s speech. And once a man casts all consideration for others to the winds, he stops at nothing." Sri Sarada Devi, the Consort of Sri Ramakrishna.

Is the real possessor of happiness." -Sri Chinmoy.

That all Hearts are One." -Sri Chinmoy

      So true. If you want peace, do not find fault with others. Hard as heck, though. As always, enjoyed your poetry and the message.

      This is a lovely poem and very wise words from Sri Sarada Devi. If only we could look inwards we would be at peace with one another.

      My personal favorite: "One’s sensitivity is lost if one has no control over one’s speech. And once a man casts all consideration for others to the winds, he stops at nothing." So true!

      Beautiful and thought provoking :) Finding faults is easy . Many times I realized that whenever i find a fault in another person, actually makes me realize of my own faults.

      The poem is lovely, but my favourite part is the second verse. I love the imagery and the idea of emotions falling like rain on the wings of time.

      Your poetry is always so beautiful. I'm finding that recognizing my own faults is not as much of a problem as fixing them. Fixing them has been a long process, and I still stumble along. Perhaps one day I will find that I have it mostly figured out. But then I suppose, everyone is always still a work in progress. There will just be something else to improve upon. Thank God for hope.

      How true and wise that it it in not finding fault in others, but recognizing one's own faults, that a person can find and cultivate peace within! This is all very beautiful and enlightening, my dear friend Manatita!

      I love that your poetry reveals both your spiritual growth and your humanity. Being on earth is for both. Hugs.

      Once a man throwns all considerations to the winds, he stops at nothing. We see that done today that the challenge is stronger to live int in our own lives. What a beautiful poem...

      I absolutely love your poetry like this one!!! After reading this only halfway through, my consciousness tunneled itself in and out of vivid visualizations of the combined symbolizations and the literal senses. Both the abstract, and realistic, combining themselves simultaneously like a fluid wave pulsing into reality. Even after reading for the 5th time, it still brought the vividness. Your words are beautiful, my brother. You inspire.

      Yes, Chitrangada.

      I knew her through being attracted by her spiritual articles. Thank you for for loving sentiment. Much peace!

      It is full of hope. Diliberate. I wanted a loving start. Once you read Sri Chinmoy, Ramana and Ramakrisna, you would realise that the 'other' guy fell short.

      Thank you so much!

      Haha Rinita.

      Makes sense, but not intended. I switch from he/it/ she, quite a lot!

      Thank you so much!

      Eric, I like that Native American saying. Cool!

      Oh! My Brother, another sublime Hub from you. A divine poem-metaphor, but I have to say that my Heart sang with joy when I read the first quote of Sri Chinmoy. It is so hopeful for us who know that we have many weaknesses.

      Thank you, Brother!

      I interpreted this as the personification of the heart, and to render it as the female gender seemed truly central. Great offering for Shaloo who writes from her heart.

      There is an old Native American name given "Walks in Beauty". So be it. Both of you here do that.

      Beautiful poem and a lovely tribute to Shaloo!

      She is a dear friend and multitalented too. Her inclination towards spirituality is admirable, just like yours.

      Thanks for sharing this and the wonderful words of wisdom.

      Thank you Manatita for this lovely dedication! The love and gratitude for the divine is beautifully depicted in the poem and speaks of hope for us, the fallen souls. Loved the quotes by Sri Chinmoy...So blessed we are to have a spiritual master in our lives!
