I walk on Your turf gently, with a sacred swing and Mother Earth swallows my shadows. My woes have been cushioned by Your blanket of Light, and I drift sweetly, in Your Stillness-Peace.


Beloved, for You my breath dances with vibrancy, and the inner music resonates, with the kernel of my unspoken word. I now bathe in Your serenity. Ah! How I long for even the last dog to be filled with reverential fire!


I now float and flow in a river of magnitude so sweetly vast, that the stream from my eyes has become ceaseless. I weep with joy; shed tears for all those yearning to be free.


Only yesterday, I was lost in a quagmire of delusions, but now my joy knows no parallel, and the freedom of the Soul is boundless. I have reached out to You, with a ceaseless and perennial need, and You have filled my longing, with peerless Love.



You Have Filled my Longing, With Matchless Love.


I was once like one lost in the middle of turmoil,

With emotions surreal in the middle of emptiness.

My spirit travelled restlessly in torment,

And the dark nights of winter, carried my pain .

But now for You my heart moves; the Soul relishes Delight.

Though my field of vision is filled with elegant pastures,

Yet it is only You I see, a Garland in my Heart.

Beloved, Your allure is too vast!

Like a young firefly, dreaming of supernal beauty,

I am caught in its effulgence,

And I weave my way drunkenly, in this tapestry of Light.

You have filled my longing, with matchless Love;

I now wish to dwell, at the sacred portals of Your Abode, forever.

      Thank you first for signing my guestbook. I appreciate it.

      I love spiritual things, and love to live a spiritual life.

      I love God, and his people-those like you, who also love God

      Many Blessings Manatita,

      You show a deep understanding of Spirit. Since you have read Eckhart Tolle, I will mention him again. All we ever have is the Eternal Now. Do not think too much, but practice, practice, practice ..... serve, serve, serve. This will widen your Heart. Build a Shrine or Alter at home and practice spiritual disciplines. I give advice in my Hubs on Yoga. God speed!

      Manatita I didn't know you are mystic-that's also the path I choose because it is the path that chose me. I wish to be one with God (I am sure that is what Jesus meant when he said He, and God were one. Not the same person as God, but one with him.

      Your poems inspire, so thank you,

      I wish you well with your exams. Do not let my poems intimidate you. They are practically all addressed to God. If I chose to dedicate it to you, then it is because I see and appreciate your inner beauty; your sweet sincerity; your struggle; your Light ....

      Still, I am a mystic and esoteric writer, and so all my poems need to be read at least twice. then you would see much more. I wish you a pleasant evening and much Love.

      Manatita I wasn't more relaxed, I'm kind of anxious right now thinking about my grades.

      Well written poems kind of intimidate me. This time I came back to read it, and copied, and saved it.

      Thank you again for such a beautiful, and thoughtful gift.

      God's love, and blessings for you,

      Mara

      I now have your sisters name. I believe that I dropped one linealso. Those who read my poems without being in a hurry always get more. They are quite sublime pieces. Perhaps you were more relaxed this time. Lots of Love.

      You've changed it!? I read it with such ease this time. It's more beautiful than I remember. Or it's me LOL

      I have been studying for finals, and I haven't been on Hubpages in a week or so

      Peace and Blessings,

      Tara is more timid than I am, and not as assertive. She'll do anything to avoid a fight. I'm sure you know that I'm not :)

      I think we should stand up for what we believe, even those who attack, as long as they attack my beliefs and not me personally

      Thank you for your concern, you are a very kind person worthy of many good things

      I have tried had to tell you also that you could be attacked. We humans all need Light but some would resist it vehemently. My love to your sister. Be careful with the Questions and Answers yourself. When you see that you are going nowhere, the best course is not always reasoning, but silent Love. Much peace.

      Thank you for including my sweet sister Tara. She read it, and smiled a while, and I could tell before she told me, that she was honored too, just as I am
