The Pain of Separation From Love. To Saqib 6608 by Manatita
The Absolute simply ...Is ...
I live in a land of separation.
It is a strange or surreal country,
And not my real Home.
You’ve sent me here, O Allah?
Yet this self-love, this acquired ego,
Has veiled my inner Satnav;
Created an Alzheimer of forgetfulness;
Now I stumble painfully in a veil of darkness.
Sweet Ocean of my origin, do not forget me.
This tiny drop, first delivered from
Your playground of Bliss Supreme,
Now lies in mourning, surrounded by a flood of delusions.
I use aggrandisements to cover my fear;
The vestiges of desire and greed do shackle me in chains.
The attachment-bondage of outer affluence in myriad forms,
Enslave the freedom of my Soul.
Anger has darkened the beauty of the Spirit;
Lust and greed has chained me, to a cobweb of entanglements.
O Divine Gate-keeper, where is Your lantern of Fire?
It burns not, yet smoulders the Soul in its effulgence,
To dine in paradise.
Come! Take me away on Da Vinci’s Mona of Love,
To escape this dark chasm of ignorance and ephemeral shadows.
Hold my hands; guide this lost child of Yours,
To return to the realm of Silence-Peace.

The pain of separation from God
Have you felt this?
I once felt this separation, and cried in my Soul. So far it has been my most painful experience, and lasted for 18 months! Through it all I knew that God loved me, it is just that I had disobeyed His Will, and the Soul, in its wisdom, sought to bring me back to God. It was a very painful process, one very necessary, but nevertheless meaningful and filled with hope.
May the Mother-Father-God bless us all, in our separation from Love. Om Shanti!
