A Clarion Call to My Beloved Christos. To Doris Dancy by Manatita
Prayer in times of affliction
Can affliction help us?
Sweet Yesu Christos, You who encompasses, sustains ALL;
Gives solace to my longings.
O Fabric-Weaver of Eternal Time. Come!
Bring forward Your tapestry of secrets;
Untangle the fetters of a disconsolate mind.
Cloaked in the Silence of my Heart,
Continue to nourish and replenish my vigour.
Bless Your daughter on her unfolding journey,
O Gate-keeper of the Supernal Light!
Wise to all woes and shadows,
Let Your Grace nourish; remove the seeds of doubt.
Bestow Your boon on a loving yet melancholic Heart,
Grant me the matchless Pearl: the Joy without parallel,
In the Mansion of my Soul,

~ Wordcrafted Wisdom. Awakening The Light Within ~
We are born and then we grow. Full of love, light and beauty,
we envisage large dreams and visions in the looming future before us.
We study and then work and in between we deal as best we can,
with the vicissitudes of life. No one is free of this; no one can run from it.
This makes us selfish - to an extent - and rightly so,
as we plan and look ahead in search of happiness.
Meanwhile, the Master Weaver shapes and moulds, and the seemingly
sharp knife hurts our egos, fears, insecurities, pleasures and doubts. What
a wonder and awe this is! Our joys, sorrows ... life's experiences
all in His hands as we are bruised and chiselled, in order to mould
a beautiful vase to alleviate our sufferings and grant us bliss.
