Love is multiplied.

When Love is multiplied, God is multiplied."- Sri Chinmoy

This River of Peace

My struggles are buried in eternity,

Yet my dreams are a snow-white bird –

A soaring eagle --emptying this memory

Of its longing, to place it all at the feet of Love.


Whenever You enter this Heart of mines,

The light zephyrs toast to my honour. Even

The scent of lavenders, whispers Your name,

While sunflowers dance in the distant meadows.


Your sweet wine is scribbled, on the eloquent cadences

Of Lovers. Telling of ballads that sob and cry, they

Quicken my breath; bring tears of serenity to the soul.

Light shines in the darkness; yet it is You who directs my Spirit.


Tales of Your smile intoxicates me, like bedtime

Stories, reaching for the moonlight. I try to unpeel them,

To gaze at the lustre of Thy lips, paint kisses on their

Crimson aura, calling my Heart, to Your celestial banquet.


O Love, O beauty non-pareil, flood my core with

Perennial nectar; help me to enter this river of Peace.


- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 18th March, 2021

My Lord does not ask me,

For my mind's brilliance;

He only asks me, for my Hearts radiance." - Sri Chinmoy

To treasure my Heart

And not my house."- Sri Chinmoy

Manatita44,

This is so good!

For whenever I think or stop for a moment to converse with him, my inner soul becomes so much lighter.

I can feel the love embrace me with beauty of that like the lavender flowers.

I love all the quotes.

Great ink.

You and me, buddy, floating down the river, no paddles, no motor, just drifting along, propelled by love and peace. Sigh! so peaceful, eh?

Love the message, as always, my friend. Blessings to you, my friend in peace.

What a lovely way to start the day in reading your prose, and others, about peace. Those kinds of words need to be shared. Thank you!

manatita44 (author) from london on March 19, 2021:

Yes. Powerful!

The one below is just as meaningful. 'House' means possessions ... things of outer affluence that we are attached to.

You are softening Dee. Glory be! I'm always happy when my teachers words can help. Much Love.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on March 19, 2021:

Starting today with a peaceful, restful attitude. Thanks for your inspiration. Love Sri Chinmoy's, "He only asks me, for my Hearts radiance." Have a great Friday.

God morning, my Dear. No one can accuse you of not enjoying your youth! You're so active here! You would have been a joy to my Master. Day and night it was all serve, serve, serve. he used to say: 'time is so precious, while I'm on earth!' yet he still lives in us. Thank you for this blessing of Love. Amithaba! Om Shanti!
