Flowers of the Heart


Light and Beauty


"Love is the revelation of life.

Life is the manifestation of Love."- Sri Chinmoy.

Last night’s twilight hours,

Saw wondrous stars singing and dancing in my heart.

A new and silent deliverance had just transformed it,

Into a Temple of beautiful flowers.

Deep within, I was lavishly adorned and decorated

By the crown of His glory.

No scent was spared;

Fragrances permeated from above, below, forward, within …

I was bedecked with oils from an ethereal realm.

Ah! Such translucent Light!

The inner eye fixed with enchantment,

My caged bird of millennia,

Now roamed freely in the firmament,

And I reeled as in a drunken stupor.

What have you done, O seeker?

Why bring intoxicants in the presence of the Beloved?

As the sweet, secret and sacred Word embraced me,

I was overwhelmed, and became mute.


Drifting, .. drifting … all thoughts lost in blissful void,

A deep serenity as of the ocean’s bed takes hold.

I am awake to the inner melodies of myriad Seers.

Sri Chinmoy’s flute is resonating in my Soul.

A supernal realm approaches, my Soul cries.

Joyous and bounteous is this moment!

I sail upon a boat of supernal Delight,

And merge in union with my Lord.

      The words are mere emissaries for the spirit of love. Beautiful ~ and my favorite line is:

      '. . . A deep serenity as of the ocean’s bed takes hold . . . '

      What a peaceful, glorious sense of being that brings and expresses.

      My deepest condolences, Dear Doris.

      I really thought about you in NY. So sorry to hear about your Friend. I do not know the Master's Will. May she rest in peace in His eternal lap of Love and wonderment.

      Yes. I think it's fair to say that I seem to write for you, as well as a few others here. Here are some very significant spiritual words: Receptivity; purity; assimilation; gratitude, devotion ... Receptivity you most definitely show. You can read about purity in Chapter 13 of my book as well as the Chapter called the Human Psyche, especially when describing the Vital. Of course you may excel in all these others. Quien sabe?

      My Sister is remarkable and bears her burden well. I think I will write a piece about my trip soon. How are you finding the book? It is not that I know more than anyone else, but I sat at the feet of a man of God for 32 yrs. Ask questions, I will most definitely give answers that you can apply to your own spiritual practice. Praise God!

      Thanks Ruby.

      A lot of them are designed to be read together, and especially in the quiet periods when you meditate a.m and p.m. God bless your loving heart.

      Hello My Friend,

      Your words bring such a calm to the spirit and the soul of me. Even without the music, the imagery speaks of peace and harmony which is the byproducts of love.

      My very good friend passed away last week, but she left such a spirit of love that is so vivid in her daughters.

      I am glad that you had an inspiring and reflecting trip to NY, and I do hope that your Sister will be better soon. Take care and as always, my friend, stay cool.

      The language itself is cloaked in awe, my Bro, and yes, some words are lofty too. For the spiritual or esoteric poet, they simply fit this space: ethereal, supernal, celestial, heavenly, translucent. Some exquisite ones representing the inner Light such as effulgence, radiance, resplendence ...

      Representing the inner music such as resonance, cadence, rhapsody, melody ... one simply has to be careful that they are not used too much. So I switch to flowers, and temple ... things that represent or bring forward the inner beauty of the Soul.

      This is a love offering. Read slowly and you will feel its beauty. Still, do not worry about words, I like the sweet simplicity of your Spirit, and your empathetic side. So simply read, play the video and just be ... OM Shanti! (wishing you deep peace within)
