The Soul of America Rejoices: Monday's Inspiration 17, to Dream On
Quote from Sri Chinmoy
"O Dignity-Majesty-Divinity-Reality-flooded Soul of American Liberty! These are the good, better, best qualities of the real America, the America which is to raise the consciousness of the world, and why I came here. This is the America I envisioned in India. “Beautiful” — the real Beauty of the Absolute Supreme, universal Beauty of the Supreme, America the country embodies." -Sri Chinmoy
Wisdom of Sri Chinmoy
"America's evolving spirit, being the essence of her national Self, is bound to transcend its present limits and soar to the heights of spiritual oneness. In the works of her advanced thinkers there are already indications of her mental growth towards the summit of her evolution, a summit which will manifest the successful spiritual transformation of her life and thought.
She may well be the first to respond to the call of God, to the unique task of self-transmutation into the consciousness of the Soul. If in a post-war world she has been a great helper, what role will be hers in the world of tomorrow, when God's Voice will be heard through all human lips?" -Sri Chinmoy
The Soul of America Rejoices
A twilight evening, a new dawn beckons;
Hope blossoms in the Heart of man.
The soul of America rejoices,
As freedom suddenly sings its melody.
The Tao of dauntless courage,
Heralds yet another promising sunrise.
Rejoice, O my soul! Victory to the hour of God.
The minstrels dance from heaven;
As sweet trumpets sound with gusto.
The joyful tears of the Heart fill the skies.
Into a river of copious Love,
The Spirit of the Founding Fathers,
Floats on the crest of silvery wings,
Kissing the Light of the moon, in peerless bliss.

We Hug Tightly in The Silence of The Morn and Become One
The crimson sun rinses the sky;
Dark clouds disappear like shadows,
Whose rivers suddenly run dry.
Dawn peeps through an indigo blue,
As hope blossoms in the marigolds and sunflowers.
Beneath the moon where we encounter,
I kiss her cheeks, and her breath trembles softly.
The zephyrs dance beneath my window,
Cooling the burning flames of bodies entwined,
As eternity stands still.
Her smile lights up my soul;
We hear the sweet chants of cockatiels
And canaries, singing their sweet psalms of freedom.
We hug tightly in the silence of the morn and become one.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 15th, October, 2017.
Floating on The Elysian lap of Happiness
Flooding my core with Your beauty,
You became the essence of my being;
Now I am empty; have become completely Yours.
I weep copiously and my joy unbounded,
Flies into the vastness of the firmament,
Touching the Hearts of lovers of longing.
You transformed the fetters of my imprisonment;
Now In Silence, I drift from Bliss to Bliss.
Aye, I have become a lover of Love,
Enraptured by the many fragrances in my Soul!
Come! Sweet Majesty! My breath stands still like death,
Yet I am so alive!
Floating on the Elysian lap of happiness;
Conversing in Silence with my Queen.
Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 12th August, 2017.
