Oven of Warmth

The Fire that turns
a dead corpse into ashes

The Warmth that bakes
a delicious cake in my oven

The Love from the Heavens
granted my soul a sweet rebirth.

This Love, my love (15/08/2020)

While we were still together,
My enslaved mind couldn’t appreciate You much.
It’s been 5 years abroad now, and I have joyously visited You thrice
And vividly dreamed of You several times.

This morning as I woke up, I thought of You
I then had a quick vision of being a foreign flower
deeply rooted in Your immortal land
blossomed from Your loving lap.

O Divine Mother, embrace me with Your Love and Wisdom
that I may speak of Your Fragrance
wherever the destiny wind leads me to!

With Gratitude & Love,
A ‘distant’ child of You (India).

Happy Independence Day to fellow Indians e Buon Ferragosto agli amici Italiani!

Who are you?

When I pronounce your name*

Something inside me moves

And then, I cry, giggle and criggle

Who are you?

I was agnostic about Past Lives

But now, I am not sure

Were you a Friend, a Lover from the Past?

Please tell me, who are you?

I do not see you

Yet I find you real

Like invisible atoms in my being,

Do you hide yourself and play

the famous “who are you” game?

I must be you

How else could I explain our deep connection?

How else could I explain my own existence?

Am I not you? 😉

*The name can be many, for me, the name is Krishna!

An invitation to The Void Space

Dear Readers & Writers of all sorts,

Since I received a notification this morning that this site has 101 followers, as of now, I thought it’s time to invite you all into the Void Space with me – right here, and right now.

Please be with me till the end of this post, if it’s safe.

It is not important to sit with an upright spine, but if you feel good about it, do it so.

Give yourself a half-smile.

Release the tightness of your body.

Relax into your peaceful smile.

Please don’t force anything. You’re good as you are, in your own way.

Trust this process, Trust this guidance.

Breathe in, stay with your breath as you breathe in.

Breathe out, stay completely with your breath as you breathe out.

Tap into that ‘Ease’ that you may feel right now.

Become a flow with breathing as your anchor.

Breathe in, Breathe out.

There is nowhere to go, nothing to do.

Stay here, with your breath, now.

If your mind brings something – a thought, a sensation or an emotion,

No matter how pleasant or unpleasant it might be,

Remain as an Observer and continue to stay here, with your breath.

You are safe here. You are beautiful here. You are your True Self here.

Welcome aboard. You are in the Void Space now.

Thank you for being here.

Please let me know how did it go in the comments. I’ll be happy to guide you further with obstacles that you might be facing.

Please visit my first-ever post here, where I gave some tips for the beginners in Meditation.

Note:- You might want to do your next sessions with (half-) closed eyes.

The most received post is The Mirror with 76 views, as of now. I’m really happy about this.

Thank you all once again for being here. It feels like a Family – I’m happy and grateful. Looking forward to knowing you all more and more through your writings, comments, and your continued presence & support.

Much Love,
Velu

A gentle introduction to Yoga

The term Yoga, though popular, remains superficially understood by most of us. Despite having grown up in India, I always had thought Yoga is a form of physical exercise. If you think of Yoga the same way, this post is right for you.

The short story is that – Yoga means Union.
– Is it the union of the body, the mind and/or the soul?
– Is it the union of God’s Consciousness with the Human Consciousness?
– Is it the union of the soul and the Holy Spirit?

I leave it to you to decide. Depending on your personal identity – this may vary.
Let’s now look into different ways of attaining such a remarkable union.

1.Yoga as Action/Service (Karma Yoga)
– Action here implies nurturing the righteous (Dharma) way of living.
– You might want to read one of my earlier posts (jump to point 3 in the post).
– For example, Mahatma Gandhi is a Karma Yogi. (NB: The scripture Bhagavad Gita played a crucial role in Gandhi’s life.)

By dedicating all your works to Me, you will be freed from the bondage of good and bad results. With your mind attached to Me through renunciation, you will be liberated and will reach Me.

Bhagavad Gita

2. Yoga as ‘Asana
– This is the Yoga as we all know of. It is a set of body postures that involve gentle twisting, balancing poses accompanied by conscious breathing.
– This also includes Meditation.

3.Yoga as Devotion (Bhakti Yoga)
– This involves Prayers, Singing the Gods’ names with deepest yearning for the divine connection and so on.
– This is also called as the path of Love.

If one offers to Me with devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit, or even water, I delightfully partake of that article offered with love by My devotee in pure consciousness.

Bhagavad Gita

4.Yoga as ‘Inner’ Wisdom (Gnana Yoga)
– Understanding the deepest mysteries of the human mind consciousness itself is a form of Yoga. You might translate this into Intellectual form of Yoga. As an example, Socrates is a Gnana Yogi.

An unexamined life is not worth living.

One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.

I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.

Socrates

Having laid out these techniques, I’d also like to state that there is no one particular path for all beings. Probably, that is why we have different options, no? It’s been said that for a sincere aspirant, the path shall be laid before him/her. However, it is also evident that none of these paths are completely distinct from the rest.

It doesn’t matter if one is an atheist or a monotheist or a polytheist, these techniques remain valid to live a righteous living.

I hope this post was useful to you. Thank you for reading.

What do you think is your path, as of now? 🙂

This Love, my love (11/07/2020)

It is a Winter morning in Summer
You are the perfect rescue to my soul,
Filling my body with your fragrance
Warming my mind with your freshness
Bringing my whole existence an ever-new joy
There is no present, past, nor future with you
There is only timelessness, forever and eternal
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
As I drink the last sip, permit me to remain with you.

Faithfully,
A Tea Lover

The Fire of Love

As She came closer with Her eyes gazed on him,
His whole system began to shut down,
Except his Heart
Which remained tangible to his senses.

As She touched his cheeks,
And caressed his hair softly,
He desired to turn into a pile of hay
To give such a Fire of Love a way.

As now She blew a kiss,
The Fire began to spread rapidly
From his lips, to the Heart, to all of his body.
The Earth and the Sky are in an ecstatic communion!

As She gently pressed Her body against his,
And his breath began to attune with Hers,
He was turning into ashes yet very much alive,
Into nothingness yet the Source of everything.

In the wilderness of Love,
He became one with the Fire – that She is.
And there was no separation afterwards – For
Their Love is written in Eternity.
