Golden boat


Quote from Sri Chinmoy

"O my Boat, O my Boatman,
O message of Transcendental Delight,
Carry me. My heart is thirsty and hungry,
And it is fast asleep at the same time.
Carry my heart to the other shore." -Sri Chinmoy.

Turbulent Sea of Life


Monday's Inspirations. To my Friends

I was once lost, in a sea of despair,

My unbridled vessel, lashed by life’s fears.

But the hand of Grace, my helm did but steer;

Cute Rainbows erasing my wave of tears.

My dawn embraces, afflictions of yore;

My ev’nings’s promise, a joyful Delight.

Love tore asunder, my chains of sorrow,

Erasing the burning blood of my plight.

Deep thunder was crashing from high above,

But She emptied my garbage, dirt supreme.

Into the shimmering light of Her Love,

Illumined my path and planted God’s dream.

She took from me, the tart wine of my Chalice;

Adorning my core, with the Joy of Her Bliss.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted 19th March, 2017.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~



Quote from Sri Chinmoy

"... I remember ...
I sang with the twinkling stars,
I danced with the floating moon.
All lost, alas, too soon

I remember, I remember, I remember.."- Sri Chinmoy

" ...Another day, I'll be God's Love
Within, without, below, above." -Sri Chinmoy.

"Arise, awake, O friend of my dream.
Arise, awake, O breath of my life.
Arise, awake, O light of my eyes..." -Sri Chinmoy.




"The Joy of the seasons is coloured,

Like a sacred haven, dancing in our Hearts.

O my Soul, you shed a river of tears,

Knowing they represent the fragrance...

The supernal grandeur,

Of your eternal Home." -Manatita, 20th March, 2017.

      I am happy

      when the weather

      is warmer,

      and each bird

      is singing its carefree,

      jubilant song!

      The flowers are sweet;

      the sun is bright,

      and golden;

      all is right in the world,

      and nothing could ever,

      possibly, go wrong!

      I love spring; I do! I do!

      I thank you profusely. Watch this space, as they say. Loving thoughts.


      Indeed, my Friend, indeed. You have just reminded me, that the beginning of the week can be like spring in some ways: new growth; new vision; change of focus; promises of more radiant day-breaks ...todos. Thank you so much!

      Ah, Ruby. So sweet! I pray for fire-flies and shooting star-lights, and not the recent weather you guys have had. Much Love.

      As spring arrives I feel reborn. Along with the birth of nature's children, blossoms in bloom, new leaves bursting from the arms of trees, I give gratitude for a new season encompassed with love.

      A new day is dawning. A current of love sweeps through me. Leave yesterday behind as now is for the living. I love your poem about "Seasons". You bring rejoicing to a heavy heart.

      Love and peace,
