Wisdom from the Master

“Adversity makes you dynamic.
Adversity endows you
With faith in yourself.” - Sri Chinmoy

"Despair. We should not seek this. There is an extreme or intense pain that comes with it, but even in its deepest depth or abyss, the Beloved walks with us, or carries our burdens on His shoulders of mercy and Heart of compassion." - Manatita


The Agony of Separation

The past invades, my incomplete memories,

Written in a calligraphy of scarlet.

My current story, is like a manuscript of folklore,

Singing and dancing of Light and shadows.

I know I went to the sun once, but -

Like Icarus - I fell heavily into the azure.

I hear some call this Destiny, but all I know

Is the misery of separation – the agony within,

Sucking at the tear-drops of my soul … weeping.

The wine of Love has dyed my Heart with thorns,

Not roses, and I feel like a prickly shroud.

My Shyama, my absolutely peerless Queen,

You have used Your pinnacle of Mercy, to kiss me

Sweetly, with this tormenting affliction.

Awakening a ceaseless longing, we

Have blended together, like autumnal colours,

Into a sublime tapestry of beauty, that will never perish.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 16th November, 2019

The gift of struggle


Paradise Regained

Love pushed me hard, unto the sturdy track,

No quarter given and no mercy asked.

I burned and burned, my sombre friend, the dark,

A cast of shadows in this cauldron masked.

I struggled thus for eons in my pain,

Grasping at ephemeral illusions.

My once pure Heart now caught within disdain,

Loneliness and fear my strong emotions.

She came again as Light, not in disguise,

Now wide awake, paid heed to Her advice.

My fettered chains removed; now no demise,

Truth now blends well, with cinnamon and spice.

Embraced me tight, my Queen within abide,

Did flood my soul, while joyfully I cried.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier 16th Sept, 2019.


Wisdom From the Master

"Adversity is the shock that can lead to a deeper and more thoughtful attitude. If we see adversity as a necessary event for our own self-improvement half the fear of adversity is lost. We no longer see the difficult situation as our enemy but as part of our life." - Sri Chinmoy

Rumi's Poetry

The agony of isolation

Do you feel this sometimes, if so, and to what intensity

See results
