The world is like a little child, begging us
to come out of our heart home and play.
Come out and play with me for a little while!
Then when the longing returns —
to be home again — what a happy thought!
Heart is where the home is!
And here it has been,
right within me, all this time!
I had a vision once, in the early 2000’s. I was meditating in an Indian-style temple. It was during a long evening meditations, interspersed with some beautiful kirtan.
There was a courtyard outside. Both day and night it sparkled with blue white light, not just down near the ground, where people walked, but high up into the sky.
In my vision, Lord Krishna sat in the courtyard. His etheric essence filled the courtyard, shimmering out into the temple and the parking lot, and higher still. He held his hand out in front of him, at heart level, cupped.
In his hand sat a person playing kirtan, completely immersed in Divine love. The picture above reminds me a little of my vision.
I AM THAT ETERNAL FLAME
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
27 January 2015
I am that Eternal Flame.
I am the Light and the Life.
I am the Way and the One who has found it.
I am the Dark that shapes this Light.
I am the All.
I am that within the All,
nurtured and nurturing.
Always the flame.
LORD KRISHNA’S MANTRA OF LIBERATION
Video: “Om Namoh Bhagavate Vasudevaya” a mantra of Lord Krishna, as performed by Krishna Das, posted by felizporeleccion, 12 April 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3qyxosBDTg .. This is a Mukti (liberation) mantra and a spiritual formula for attaining freedom.
(1) I feel it is a mistake to imagine these are two separate people.
Rather, to me it seems this is a picture of the One God, at one with His Creation.
So then, as a man identifying with Godness, how can he look down on woman, who is one with him?
Is it not true that a woman bore us?
Who then is higher? Who lower?
If we are That, is She not the Source of That?
Guru Nanak wrote a beautiful prayer about this. See Citation: “Raag Aasaa Mehala 1” by Guru Nanak, Page 473;http://www.srigurugranth.org/0473.html .., Search the term: From woman … and then read the following text.
