The Spirit of Christmas

Merry Christmas to all my Hubber-Friends and HubPages Team. May the Spirit of the Absolute Supreme, continue to bless you and guide your life, into the fullness of experience and the fruits of spiritual solace. All this in harmony and accordance with His Will and Consciousness. Amen.

O Light, my Light, my beautiful Light,

Magi’s follow, Your stars from above.

A child to behold; manger’s Delight,

One filled with lustre; Your purity- dove;

Red suit and hat, with white furry trim,

Santa down the chimney; children’s dreams.

Lots to give out in packages brim,

With red-nosed Rudolph and sleigh, it seems.

O Light, my Light, sweet towering height,

You shine from within, with Love so bright.

Jolly-looking folks, and ‘feel good’ sites,

Jingle-bells ringing, throughout the night.

Mistletoe, dinners, reindeers and wine,

Carollers sing, and carousel glows.

With this great joy, in turkey we dine,

While Christmas cards, gifts and goodness flows.

Sweet Jesus, my Light; radiant Sun,

He died on a cross, God’s Will was done.

Lovers, revellers, invoke the One,

Who rose on day three; was God’s own Son.

Children and snowmen, let us rejoice,

The glorious rising, of the King.

Forgiveness and holiness, our choice,

In goodness of Spirit; gladness sing.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 13th December, 2018.


Wisdom from the Master

"Christmas reveals to us a limitless ocean of Universal Joy. The waves of the suffering world dare not declare their existence.

It is not under the branches, but at the foot of the tree that one gets full protection. Therefore human souls, wherever they may be scattered, return to their families in order to breathe in serenely the Universal Harmony and Peace on Christmas Day." -Sri Chinmoy


Come! Come! Sweet Jesus! A Free Verse Sonnet

Come! Come! Sweet Jesus!

This great pain is tearing my soul.

I’m but a drop in Your vast ocean;

You’re the Father of my tears.

Addicted to wine -- this cellar of perennial Joy,

I swoon, like a drunkard, inebriated in Bliss.

O Light, sweet Light. Tender and fragile am I!

How can I contain, this raging fire of the Heart?

The Saviour said: “Even as you are

Love’s tiny twinkle in the stars,

So too, you are My endless flares,

Glowing in the garden of the Great Unknown.

Blowing the bugle of boundless symphonies;

Igniting the Sun with glimmering rays.”

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier

Sacrifices. An Acrostic Poem

S orrow and forgiveness flowed,

A s the tool His flesh did gore.

C hrist’s immortal words of Love,

R esonated low; above.

I srael’s son upon the cross,

F aced the callousness of man.

I s it really such a task,

C rying for His Father’s Land?

E nter through God’s Gates of Light;

S acrifice For His Delight.

Wise words from the Master
