The Rays of Golden Light Are beckoning. A Sonnet by Manatita
You are enchanted, O Lantern Carrier!
What’s with this ephemeral shadow? It is only an encounter --
A boon from the Beloved -- to assist you on your sojourn,
To the invisible Abode of Silent Conversation.
Go beyond mundane attachments;
But do not cast away the Soul’s needs.
The farmer tills the soil,
And ultimately gets a bumper harvest.
So too, when the emotions become parched with desire,
The tears of rain become paramount to satisfy this grasping.
Arise, however; go beyond craving as life permits.
The Rays of Golden Light are beckoning, “Come,Come!”
O Lantern Carrier! way beyond this meticulous wayfaring;
Gleaming from yon supernal gateway, is your Eternal HOME.

Quotations on Light.
"And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." -John, 1:5. (KJV)
Our English Queen Elizabeth the 2nd, (God Bless Her Soul) gave a slightly different version in the Christmas speech, yesterday.
"When I say Light, I am speaking about illumination....Light embraces humanity with all its imperfections and tries to illumine human ignorance so the human life can be elevated into the divine life." -Sri Chinmoy.
