Wisdom from the Master

"The determination in your heroic efforts,

Will permeate your Heart and mind,

Long after your success or failure, has long since been forgotten." -Sri Chinmoy

Jessie Owens left a lasting legacy, by using his speed ... his indomitable will, to fight against the forces of bigotry and tyranny

What is your legacy? Each soul is unique. Each soul is Divine and has something special to offer to the world. Nelson Mandela left something which was not necessarily related to him being President, but the spirit of dauntless courage; of sacrifice … a cry of the soul for freedom, in every African and love-seeking Heart.

We are all made in the image of Spirit and not so different after all. Some Englishmen said they were surprised to find that ordinary Russians were so welcoming, so upbeat at the last World Cup Soccer event. The truth is that we - Chinese, Indians, caucasians, blacks; native Americans or Japanese, all share the same ideals and aspirations for love, service, nutrition … security.

I wish to be remembered for being an instrument of a Higher Light … for striving for excellence … in doing my best to light a candle in each Heart, according to the Will of the Absolute Supreme.

Should I light a spark in any Heart, then my own inner flame will definitely prosper. For it is in selfless offering that I receive … in sacrifice that I myself will prosper and gain eternal life.

We are all one in Spirit. We came here to glorify or manifest the reality and beauty of Something Higher. From Bliss we came, in Bliss we live and it is in Bliss that we will return to the abode of Love. Glory be! What is your legacy?


Wisdom-Quote from the Master

Only The Bliss of Endless Peace


Down in the meadow of the

Haven of Love;

We met in an abode of speechless Light.

We spoke in stillness… no claps;

No clicking of fingers … no sound.

I wooed her beauty in my bewilderment;

Stroked her hair with the tears of my glee.

She smiled … looked deep into my eyes

and cradled my eloquence.

I left my sound, in the breath of Her Silence.

She kissed my soul as our Hearts merged;

We became ONE.

Lantern says: There in this sacrament of the Present

Moment, there was only the Bliss of endless Peace.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 1st October, 2018
