For The Spirit of Creation. To MarleneB
"The Self-Division of the Supreme proclaims the birth of creation.
Creation is the descent of Consciousness. Creation is a never-tiring march which marks the beginning of an inner and outer development."- Sri Chinmoy.
Neckar river at night
My Life-Boat Plies, Like The River.
The translucent Light of the elegant buildings,
Glimmers on the peaceful waters of the river Neckar.
Its ripples are vibrant, yet serene, tranquil, soothing …
I listen … I can hear the inner symphonies,
Feel the stillness and profundity,
Of this current of cosmic energy.
High above the river,
The overhanging vines and foliage’s of Neuer Weg,
Have begun to turn a magnificent magenta hue.
It is 8 p. m on October 9th, 2016,
And the first day of winter has begun.
Not far from the autumnal leaves,
A majestic, regal and stately Temple stands,
Offering its serenity and beauty to many.
Not so long ago, I was sitting inside its marbled sanctum,
Absorbed in the joyfulness of Silence.
An effulgent flame stabbed at the cobwebs of my mind,
Erasing its confusion; instilling an unspoken Love.
Now within the compounds of this sanctified courtyard,
I am enthralled by the cadence of the Neckar,
As an inner Delight kisses and enchants my Soul.
I’m reminded of the Euphrates,
Jordan, Yamuna and Mother Ganga,
A new awakening of this flowing elixir,
Quickens the Spirit, and gladdens my core.
Amidst all this, my life-boat plies, like the river,
To the valley of the great unknown.
The sweet resonance of ripples;
The faraway drones of Love’s vicissitudes,
Swing me softly up and down, Like a Libran Pendulum.
Playing an eternal game, for the Spirit of Creation.

"What is evolution, if not the veiled determination of an apparent unconsciousness seeking conscious formation and growth.
Nature is the evolving phenomenon, while Consciousness is its guide in evolution. At each stage, nature transcends the limits of its own species and presses forward to new conquests." - Sri Chinmoy.

"The real development and Progress of life must always sit at the feet of the Dynamic Divine and not at the feet of the Static Divine.
In the march of evolution, each period has a demand of its own. Each incarnation of God fulfils that very demand." - Sri Chinmoy
