Thy Spirit sighs; yet burns, like a Furnace of Beauty,

Even while praising the Chasms of the Night.

Do you not see the Rays of golden Lanterns,

Dancing in the Carousel of Paradise?

Soar! Take wings, like the Eagle,

Be a flame unto thyself. Rise, like the Phoenix,

Entering through the Portals of Liberation.

True, Life’s ‘packages’ and dumbbells coil,

A snake-like Karma in the making.

Come! Let us fly together!

Soar with the inimitable Fire of the One,

Going beyond the Realm of Shadows.

Enter! Like a Dancer, to the Effulgence which waltzes,

To the Light of myriad Sonatas of the Soul.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted. 17th October, 2015.

Despair can sometimes help us. Like the Potter and the clay, our Lord occasionally shapes and mould us, until once more, we become a beautiful vase, and like Him, also perfect in excellence. Hari Om!

What a beatiful dance, Life.

Do you feel this sometimes?

      Sweet Shauna,

      Yes, yes ... I like the 'two wolves of our Spirits.' Nice! Very nice. Back in the UK soon. Love.

      Yes Deb,

      You understand so well. Much Love to you, this Monday.

      This was beautifully done for Missy, dear friend. You are the light in the tunnel, a port in the storm. Together, we shall raise those up and continue in our quest.

      Manatita, we cannot know joy without experiencing despair. We cannot know joy without drowning in sorrow, pain, or doubt. Yin and Yang. Positive and Negative. We are spheres constantly spinning the various realms of emotions. Once we accept one for the other, we can learn to balance. It is only then that we discover how to determine when demons are approaching. The two wolves of our spirits come forth and ask us, "which one will you feed?"

      Vandana, thank you and welcome. I know of a Sister Vandana, a nun who travels and teaches the spiritual life. Not you, is it? Joking, she exists, but not you, although you may be one, hey he.

      I truly appreciate your loving sentiment. Om Shanti!

      I hear you. I am a servant. I try to serve. I have beginner's mind and I'm still learning. We are all the Mother's children. Much Love, my Dear Surabhi.

      Fortunate are those who have an umbrella in storm. Fortunate are those who have a shelter in scorching heat. Fortunate are those who have a boat to cross tides. Fortunate are those who have Manatita to guide in darkness as a Light.

      We all love you from the core of our heart, Manatita! Wonderful poetry dedicated to our sweet sister, Missy :)

      I am trying to serve; to convey my Love; to tell you that you are as special as I am and indeed the next person. Yoga is all about the transformation of one's own nature. Dive within, the Mother will surely help you. An embrace and a big Hug from me this weekend. Love to the children.

      Beautiful words Manatita. Thank you! I do see those golden lanterns. I have risen like the Phoenix through life over and over. I will rise like the Phoenix when it's time for me to go.

      Your words fill others with inspiration and encouragement, and I also love the film that recites Rumi's words.

      I will make it here on earth. I see beauty, even though my days can be dark. I bestow forgiveness to everyone who has wronged me and wish only goodness to them all. They know this from me, and I'm proud of that.

      Keep on leading us through your light Manatita. It's what you were born to do. :)
