Shaping and molding Love

Pandora of fears

Now that I have found You,

My quest is complete.

But I was shaped by the hands of the Potter,

As my afflictions were immense.


Thousands of ailments transformed my state;

A million lamentations, carved my way Home.

My present awakening, from shifting shadows;

My Joy arose, from a Pandora of fears.


A thousand memorials have I been!

In the dark abyss, was my agonies heard,

And the yoke of death, cradled my tombstone.

My copious tears, was a valley of sorrows,

Fanning my longing, to grant me Peace.


Time flowed … but the Light remained glorious;

I knew by Faith, that exultation was near.

Now the Joy of the Cosmos, gives peerless Peace;

The Light of Love, emits speechless Bliss.

O Lantern, within this garden of perennial grandeur,

Life’s cadences dance, to the melody of drums.

Quote on Adversity

Adversity makes you dynamic. Adversity forces your eyes wide apart. Adversity teaches you the meaning of patience. Adversity endows you with faith in yourself… one merit of adversity none can deny: it helps us to be stronger within. The stronger we are within, the brighter we are without.” _Sri Chinmoy

Rumi's poem

Longing

How deep is the longing for what you do in life?

      Ha ha, Chris.

      I can say that you're honest, yes, but why are you fighting it? If you say that you stumble, then you and I fall in the same boat. Better to embrace and stumble no?

      Thanks Bro, Don't mind my rant. LOL.

      Thank you for the reminder about how life works. I spend most of my time fighting it rather than embracing it.

      Yea, the Potter's molding could be painful at times, but without it, no Peace and no Bliss. "The stronger we are within, the brighter we are without.” Love it.

      Yes, my Brother.

      reflections ... me too. At 65 I'm not too far behind. Thank you so much!

      The cadence has slowed considerably for this boy, and I suppose that is only natural. It now gives me time to slow down and reflect, and that is never a bad thing for one looking for growth.

      Blessings always
