Happy Father's Day, My Friends And AllWho Seek Inspiration at This Time
God loves us. He loves us more than we can ever love ourselves. His Love is inclusive, one and eternal. God needs us! The Life-Tree has many branches, blossoms and fruits, all necessary to serve mankind. God utilises us as instruments to inspire, awaken …elevate aspiring children, seeking or searching for His Light.
Fathers are essentially instruments of God, the ultimate Reality…Absolute Supreme. They are commissioned to nurture us, feed, clothe, shelter and give us Love; to make sacrifices as well as guiding us along the right Path. As such, a good father shares the joyful burdens or struggles – if you like – in bringing up the children, hopefully with much promise and sincere wishes for a prosperous tomorrow for the young and delicate ones.
“Father, oh Father, what do you do here in my Heart?
I dream my cosmic dream.”- Sri Chinmoy
So today I wish to focus on Love. The Heart of a Lover is as vast as the infinite sky. There are no limits, for he/she is in love with life: Nature, God, Creation …
The flower opens and offers its fragrance to mankind. In the same way, the Light protruding from a Lover’s eyes, and the inner rays burning sweetly inside the Heart are tireless in service.
“God the Love is inside everything that we see. If we love God, and we do love Him because He is all Love, then whatever He has created, we also love. He is bound to be in His creation just because He is everywhere, just because He is omnipresent. “-Sri Chinmoy
Today on Father’s Day, it is so nice to remember that Love. We may not have got it from our fathers, but then we had grand-parents or foster parents, or dear friends of our parents who took the task on board of looking after us. Now we soulfully and selflessly, or devotedly offer that same Love or more to our near and dear ones…our relatives, friends, humans in need …animals in need…
God is inside us. He is the wafts of the rose, and the effulgence of the Soul; He is the radiant disc spinning within, guiding our emotions and directing the will to serve, to inspire, to be aware of our needs and environment. Likewise, the human father tries in his own inimitable way, to imitate the deeds of those who came before him, in the spirit of fortitude, wisdom, care and concern.
Our Lord is the Supreme Artist, but nevertheless He encourages, wills….manifests that practical need in the daddy to fulfil the needs of his son/daughter, to his ability and resourcefulness.
So as we come together today, let us raise a toast to that one half of a fullness (The other being the mom) who both got together to mould the child into the river of life, with great care, dignity and diligence, so that he/she blends carefully and smoothly, into the sojourn of earthly life.
