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).

15th of August 2020
Trento, Italy.

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

Delusion

I wept for hours
I thought I lost you
Wandered hopelessly for months
Knowing myself all along deeper and deeper
It wasn’t easy but I kept going inwards
And I realized, you are never lost nor gained
‘Cause you are what you are
And you are me
And you reside in my Heart
When I sing the song of our Soul,
You whisper in unison with me –
And ‘God’ is our Orchestra Conductor
I love you and I am not deluded anymore.

Peace

Peace is my highest deed

If it requests my acceptance, I do it faithfully,

If it invites me to understand deeper, I do it immediately,

If it advises me to do my work and renounce the results, I do it happily,

If it asks me to surrender to the given situation, wow, I do it lovingly,

If it sometimes tells me to give up, sure, why not? – I do it mindfully

Because

With Peace in my Heart, I am truly ‘Home’ and

Home is where I have everything that I truly desire.

Am I in Love?

The world seems unchanged – But
My inner being feels infinitely expanded.
Am I in Love?

The songs that once set to tremble me
Caress me lovingly,
Am I in Love?

The anxiety, the preoccupations that dimmed my moon nights
Seem to have had come to an Eternal Silence in Brightness,
Am I in Love?

This sudden movement of Fire-like cool-breeze in my Heart,
This Peace, Joy and Freedom to be in Existence in this very moment,
Are these signs that I am in Love, again?

Knowing that this ‘strange-yet-familiar’ Feeling shall go away (and come back),
I remain incredibly unchanged in this Spiral Loop of Eternity
Yes, I am in Love.

The Spring Calls You

Hey, the Spring calls you

You don’t hear it, do you?

Oh, are there too many noises in your brain?

That you miss to feel the drizzling rain!

The past says “Hey Loser, lament Now”

The future warns “I’m uncertain. Fear Now”

The present whispers “Just be here Now”

The wise chooses the present, and so they may not resent

Hey, the Spring calls you

Can you hear it, ya?

The trees say “Cia-ciaooo”

The streams flow in Joy “ooh oooooooh”

The birds sing “Cuckoo, Cuckooooo”

Hey, the Spring calls you

Can you still not hear it, ya?

Stop . . .

Close your eyes . . .

Connect with your breath . . .

And you certainly hear it now, ya!
