The Freedom of The Soul is Boundless. To Shyron E Shenko

For Your striving to Lift Others With A Oneness-Heart

Source

I walk on Your turf gently, with a sacred swing,

As Mother Earth swallows my shadows.

My woes have been cushioned,

By Your blanket of translucent Light;

And I drift sweetly, in Your Stillness-Peace.


Beloved, for You my breath dances with vibrancy;

The inner music resonates,

With the kernel of my unspoken word.

I now bathe in Your serenity;

Fly to the Heavens on a carpet of celestial Light.

Ah! How I long for even the last dog,

To be filled with reverential fire!


I now float and flow,

In a river of magnitude so sweetly vast,

That the stream from my eyes,

Has become ceaseless, and I weep with joy;

Shedding tears for all those yearning to be free.


Only yesterday, I was lost in a quagmire of delusions,

But now my joy knows no parallel,

And the freedom of the Soul is boundless.

I have reached out to You,

With a ceaseless and perennial need;

You have filled my longing, with peerless Love.

Happy Easter!!

God loves us, especially as we are made in His image. We are all unique, special and have a right to be here. Sometimes, the Light is engulfed by shadows, and we carry burdens which are trying and difficult at the best of times. Amidst all this, the Light still shines in the Heavens, and the Master Weaver works patiently, to alleviate our pain.

Pain, that word that intensifies our sorrows, tampers with our joy, and creates the loss of an elevated Consciousness, thus pushing us on the borders of despair. Still, tomorrow is a great day and this same pain caused our Lord to emerge triumphantly from the tomb; our babies to born and grow in Delight.

We are all the Mother's Love and Blissfulness. The Great White Spirit knows that our essential nature is Divine, and our Creator is always looking for ways to bless us, whenever we are not too busy, to be attentive to Its voice. It is then only that we become receptive, and the sweet exchange of Gratitude - that supreme virtue - becomes unexplainable, and our hearts shed tears.

Some of my poetry seek to express these feelings, the few times when - through His Grace - I am transported lovingly to the realm of Oneness, and feel the love and suffering of many. Then my tears flow uncontrollably, and my Faith remains unshaken by the ecstatic voice of the Beloved.

Tomorrow is Easter - the descent of Light into Darkness; the transformation of the unpleasant to the Source of Matchless Love. I welcome you here with all my Love. HAPPY EASTER!!

He he, Sweet Calypso woman (please don't hate me now. I take a little more advantage with my friends.) How are you, and how are you shaping for Easter?

Do I do tributes in anything else? Perhaps I should write you some prose:

"I know this American woman, that sings with the heart of a West Indian. She is full of simplicity; guile not a tradition, she must have had an incarnation, in the Caribbean." - The Lantern Carrier, 16:28 from the Abode of Bliss, Felix Road, London.

What's wrong with me today? Hey Ruby, Thanks for your repeated support. Happy Easter!!

This is a beautiful poem and tribute to Shyron. Easter is here - a time to stop and remember the suffering for our lives to be enhanced with ultimate forgiveness and love. Happy Easter to you, too my friend.

I'm just passing by on a quick flyover to wish you a blessed Easter. May you surround yourself with loving friends and family this weekend, and may you receive as much as you give.

Thanks Marlene. Off to your shores today. I should be lying on a Californian beach soon. He he:)

Bill, I thank you. I will be in NY and in retreat with some 1300 Souls. Our programme is daily meditation from 6 till 11'ish at night every day for 12 days, so should be fun. Yes, I guess this will be surrounding myself with loving friends, eh? Some of my friends end with Pip, pip. I still don't know what it means. Much peace.

First off, sorry I missed your beautiful poem and on Easter. But Elias and I folded cloths and watched you read, and I am glad I did. What a wonderful performance. You have a good theatre voice and good stage presence. I bet you the energy was incredible that night! Well Elias has had enough, he has no patience. Your friend, Jamie

Hugs to Elias and all credit to his patience. Such a young age! Hope that you are good and all is well.

Special thanks to you for dropping by and looking at my only attempt at uploading a video reading poetry. Visited the Nurorican after our Public Concert in Manhattan. I read one piece there. In Love and Light.
