O Love, This Discordant Pain is Intense
Quotes by Sri Chinmoy
“A single thought
Has the power of a bullet:
Either it can destroy you
Or it can help you
Immensely.” -Sri Chinmoy.
"“If your life does not give joy
Then how can you expect
Your heart to give any joy
To you?” - Sri Chinmoy.
Despair. A Sonnet
The flame has now dimmed and the curtains drawn,
I know not where, my harmony’s gone.
My breath suffocates, on my confusion,
I feel the cold freeze, from my lover’s hand.
O Love, this discordant pain is intense;
Insecurity’s real and fears immense.
The ego’s division, stabs at my Soul;
Anxiety’s weight, too much to control!
Once washed clean, by Thy glimmering Delight;
Became complacent, then shadowed by night.
Come sweet mirror, oh Light of tomorrow;
Erase or remove, my clouds of sorrow.
What sayest my Darling, is wrong with me?
Bound and fettered, how I long to be free!

~Awakening The inner Light ~
Quotes from a Seer
“Be kind, be all sympathy,
For each and every human being
Is forced to fight against himself.”-Sri Chinmoy.
"“What comes to me
Is what I carefully
Invite.” -Sri Chinmoy.
Be a Light unto yourself; you will be a Light unto others
Quotes from A Seer
“When there is a feeling of supremacy, you can forget about harmony.” -Sri Chinmoy
We travel alone and also in company. The latter is necessary for our joys, our sorrows, our experiences of duality: Good and bad; light and darkness; thorns and roses ...
All the while, the Beloved is shaping and moulding us - like a potter - to ensure that ultimately, we become the beautiful and candescent vase, that we are meant to be. Along the way, faith, hope, the experience of love and other aspects of the prototype of the divine, becomes necessary in order to grow.
While I may wish to take you with me, I cannot. Each one walks his/her own Path and gets the experiences from Love, necessary or crucial to unfold his/her wings and fly. God speed!
Have you felt the weight of this powerful force?
