In Tune With The Infinite


Thanks for your many angels Dear Patricia. The feeling is reciprocal.

One sweet gaze, and I remain unmoving.

My heart pulsates, like a raging current.

Yet knowing its necessity to sustain life, is now meaningless.

I would rather sacrifice all, for this glowing furnace,

Illumining my Soul.

My lungs remain heavy, and I struggle for breath.

Your sweet nectar enters…

My parched throat and dry lips, slowly begin acknowledgement;

I swoon enraptured, inebriated by Your celestial beacons,

Cascading beauty in my Core.

Thy sweet curls, like a river of dreams,

Dances inside my Heart’s Temple;

I lose myself, deep in an enchanted stupor,

Of Your translucent Delight.

-Manatita. Word-crafted Awakenings by The Lantern-Carrier. 25th January, 2015. ©Copyrighted.

Celestial Love


The Spirit enters into the receptive vehicle or vessel of man, and fills it with It's Delight.

The Soul weeps in loving response, and Its Heart bleeds for the happiness of ALL.

Consciousness then pervades the Soul, the heart, the mind, vital and body,

sending out its rays either as a visible or tangible Force, or through the medium

of expressive silence through the ether. Thus we grow slowly, ever-evolving

to a higher and more sublime state of Joy-Delight.

Through all this, the Mighty One continues, carrying on a birthless and deathless

journey of perennial LOVE.

The Soul's Contemplative Beauty


The Spirit of God's Love

What Does it Give to You?

See results

I give you a sweet taste of Perini

      It really IS all about the spirit, and some of us could be more spirited than others...

      Pretty close, Dee, but I'm only dreaming here. Hehe:) Interestingly enough, the highest state for God-lovers is still beyond this. Total and Unconditional Surrender, to the Will of The Supreme. The Christ says this; my Teacher says this:

      I have given a taste of it in both my books. It is also how my Soul would like to be:

      "O Lord, if you want my efforts to be successful, then I am happy. If You do not want this action to succeed, if You want me to learn something important by experiencing failure while giving the experience of success to someone else, then I am equally happy. ‘My only wish is that Thy Will be done in and through me.” Peace, my loving Dora.

      An "illumined soul" lost in "an enchanted stupor" of delight sounds like the ultimate heavenly experience. Thanks for the just the thought of it.

      Very beautiful manatita. I don't know the lovely lady, but after reading Theresa's comment, I feel your words/thoughts were meant to be. Thank you dear poet..

      You know, my Sweet,

      I have a feeling that while I was trying to send you fan mail, you were also thinking of me. So the two crossed. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

      I cry when I'm touched and so I feel honoured. Besides, I have used Perini a few times in my morning prayers, he is so, 'just what I needed.'

      So happy that you are finding love here on Hub Pages. More strength to you. Perhaps you have seen my prayer on Fortitude. God bless.

      Life throws us curve balls and we have so many choices to life like the lives of others is face with the ups and downs that come...but we are so blessed. Right here on HubPages I have found so much love and care and concern.

      How humbled I feel by this tribute to me.

      More Angels come to you once again and may they watch over you and yours each day ps I MUST share, pin, facebook, g+, and voted up up and away ...not so I will be noticed but to showcase your lovely choice of prose ....

      Oh, I did not know this Faith. Hope that my Hub is timely, then; that it can serve some purpose. Thanks for the info. I will keep her in my prayers.

      My sister has it too. She takes Anastrazole. Doctor recommended of course. She is in the U.S. A. Thanks for all info. Much gratitude.

      Hi Bill,

      We both know that life can be fragile. Still, hearing of situations like Faith writes, is always illumining and evokes concern. In this Light PS deserves more than a tribute but our Love and prayers. So good to know that she is one of your dearest Friends. Much gratitude.

      And Peace upon you and family also, my dear Theresa.

      I didn't know it was her daughter. I thought that it was her. Good that you know them, and it's a delight to hear that the entire family is so positive about life. Shows in the picture. Hope that they like it.

      What is G+? Much Mehta (Loving kindness)

      Beautiful and powerful sonnet to my dear friend, PS!

      Her profile picture of her daughter there is so lovely and I am reminded of the power of love and strength through fighting the trials this life sometimes throws at us. PS and her entire family are so inspiring as to persevere through the trials in this life with such a positive attitude.

      Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      Blessings and peace
