Wisdom from the Master
"Courage to Love,
Is the only way,
To become truly happy." - Sri Chinmoy
The Glories of Love
Dawn has emerged; a new spectrum
Of rainbows, awaken in my Heart.
Welcoming the moment, is a shimmering
Sunrise, sharing its rays with the golden morn.
Heralding the splendour of sunset, the
Light zephyrs ascend the horizon, feeding
My soul with the breeze of solitude, nursing
My joys with their whispering silence.
The seeds of benevolence ‘rise from a
Soil, offering blossoms to my Heart’s Temple.
I respond like one drunk with perennial freedom,
Soar like an eagle to heavenly spheres.
Love rejoices for one and burns in another.
Magenta glows on autumnal leaves; yet
Stars are no use to the blind or foolish.
There may not be prestige in homelessness,
But rough ways, shaped the Light of my Spirit.
Nefertiti belonged to the Emperor, so
Men felt only the cry of their hearts.
Outer demise neither touch nor convey,
The innermost sweetness of rhapsody,
For it’s hidden in the beauty of hyacinths,
While marigolds dance, exceedingly well.
Can you hear the songs of the nightingales?
The tulips at daybreak call: “Come! Come!”
Jasmines and lavenders enchant us with wafts,
Yet all pay obeisance, to the glories of Love.
-The Lantern Carrier. 23rd January, 2021
Sometimes the breath ceases, for Love has consumed
Me so much, that I see only the trails of flying. My wings
Are golden, I’m on Your lap and nothing else matters.
Stroke my hair. Go on! Tell the snow-white Dahlias
That we’ve blended together like rainbows, our colours
Mixed with such intensity, they’ve become flames of Light.
My Heart weeps with the agony of silent Joy, You filling
My vessel, like water does a reservoir. Only I rise, a kite
Perhaps, swaying at Your command, yet dancing with the heavens.
Sometimes, You pervade the stillness of my dreams.
You touch my head; I experience the state of deathless
Bliss, so real to me, that my soul still pranams on waking.
My Heart sings with the symphony of starlings,
Offering my self to the glories of creation.
- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 9th December, 2020
Wisdom from the Master
There's only one thing that is, was and ever shall be, and that is Love.
The Love that creates, the Love that nourishes and the Love that sustains God's universe." - Sri Chinmoy
