Serene light shining in the ground of my being,
draw me to yourself.
Draw me past the snares of the senses,
out of the mazes of the mind,
Free me from symbols, from words
that I may discover the signified:
the word unspoken in the darkness
that veils the ground of my being.
~ Byzantine Hymn (From The Wisdom Jesus by Cynthia Bourgeault)
I reflect you,
You reflect me,
We reflect That!
When the I in me goes deep sleep,
Then the We in me gets awake… :)
Beyond deep sleep,
Just Being, Being our Self…
“Shoshanam bhavsindhoshcha gyapanam saarsampadah
Guroh-padodakam samyak tasmai Shri Gurave Namah”
Even by the very sipping of the charanamruta (the water with which the feet of guru are washed), we get blessed by the eternal wealth (of liberating knowledge), and which dries up the endless ocean of seeking and the subsequent sorrows. My Salutations to the lotus-feet of that glorious Guru.
When started seeking I was one in many,
Once started learning I understood all is one,
Finally started realizing that I am the one in all…
Stop Judging, Start Loving,
Stop Resisting, Start Accepting,
Stop Thinking, Start Living in the present…
