In The Twinkling Stars, Paradise Regained


Floating on the firmament of bliss,

Magic carpet gliding through yon spectred moonlight,

I lose myself in the ambrosia of Your Love-Delight,

And silence reigns supreme.

O Breath of infinity’s dawn,

Cradle the delicacy of my experience;

Magnify its beauty unparalleled,

And sustain my inner equipoise.



Source

Gleaming on this crescent kite I lie in trance,

Intoxicated by Your zenith-bliss;

As silent as the ocean’s bed,

Shimmering with the light of a thousand suns!

O beauty sweet! O golden sunrise!

Here in this celestial valley of twinkling stars,

I have regained the paradise of my perpetual joy. – Manatita 18/8/13.

A peace meditation

Abode of The Great Unknown


On the Elysian lap of death, I sojourn.

Tunnel of Light and visitations appearing,

From an unfamiliar realm of the Great Unknown.

I have transported from the couch of living memories;

Passed through the room of silken pillows,

To an abode of transient rest.

O Death, worthy messenger who would seek

To paralyse my limbs and freeze my heartbeat,

By Your impending presence. Where is Thy fear?

O Faith, one day we’ll cross this kernel of darkness-night,

To one of pristine clarity.

Where I shall then sleep, in the nucleus,

Of Your tomorrow’s golden sunbeams. – Manatita 19/8/13.

Mmmm! Thank you for the hug! Are you into Christian meditation? If so, have you read "The Cloud"? I love it, but some friends don't.

You are all dear to me and I thank you wholeheartedly for your extremely kind sentiments.

No. I have not read the Cloud, Blossom, I have read The Cloud of Unknowing as well as quite a few of the Christian classics of: Brother Laurence, Thomas Merton, Meister Eckhart, St Theresa of Avila and Thomas A Kempis to name a few.

I am familiar with Christian meditation but I practice the devotional way. The disciple has a Master and follows the Master's instructions, rather like the Christ or Buddha or Krishna, etc. You may wish to read my book available on Amazon. The Review is on Hub Pages. Book review: My Guru, Sri Chinmoy: Life And Teachings. Loving thoughts.
