Yes,i see it that way too. All this is His Leela only,there is nothing apart from Him. Nothing. And i like word God,coz it takes all of His manifestations and the Supreme beyond manifestation,for me. I like all His names. And He,for sure cannot be put in any category. He is beyond category.  :)

One Friend


Many clouds do race to hide Thee -

Of friends and wealth and fame -

And yet through mist of tears I see

Appear Thy Golden Name.

Each time my father, mother, friends

Do loudly claim they did me tend,

I wake from sleep to sweetly hear

That Thou alone didst help me here.

- Paramahansa Yogananda

Yes. Everything is according to our hearts desire. Actually God is Formless but He manifests the way which is dear to our hearts. This was the most difficult part to accept about God for me. All great teachers have taught to not be attached to the form of God, finally we must let go of it. It was very, very difficult even for a Great Soul as Sri Ramakrishna. That's why I am a little afraid. How could I let go God's Form? And why should I?

You dont need to worry about that. It will make You to let it go,when the time comes. And,it need not to be in the same way how Sri Ramakrishna experience it,or any other Guru. It will be Your way only. I dont think we should on force try to let go some form if that is not our heart wish. Why should we. We can enjoy in formless and with form also,in the same time. Then we are truly rich.  :) God is everywhere anyway,so why not to enjoy and love all of His Beautiful forms. And when the time come to let go,or if it comes,that will happen.

But when I let Him go I think it will be like He disappears. :( It is like you have a close friend 10-20-30-50 years and suddenly He disappears.

No,i dont think it will be like that. The thing is that You will let go in that moment when You wont need it anymore,when is the time to trancendent everything.
But,i truly dont believe it need to be same like in someone else's case. Sri Ramakrishna did need to let go of Kali at some point,but the Mother Kali was His cherished form after realisation too.  :)

The Universe


What if someone said to an embryo in the womb,

‘Outside of your world of black nothing

is a miraculously ordered universe;

a vast Earth covered with tasty food;

mountains, oceans and plains,

fragrant orchards and fields full of crops;

a luminous sky beyond your reach,

with a sun, moonbeams, and uncountable stars;

and there are winds from south, north and west,

and gardens replete with sweet flowers

like a banquet at a wedding feast.

The wonders of this world are beyond description.

What are you doing living in a dark prison,

Drinking blood through that narrow tube?’

But the womb- world is all an embryo knows

And it would not be particularly impressed

By such amazing tales, saying dismissively:

‘You’re crazy. That is all a deluded fantasy.’

One day you will look back and laugh at yourself.

You’ll say, ‘ I can’t believe I was so asleep!

How did I ever forget the truth?

How ridiculous to believe that sadness and sickness

Are anything other than bad dreams.’

- Rumi

The minute I heard my first love story

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.

If You are a mountain


If You are a mountain,
then I am a peacock.
If You are the moon,
then I am a partridge.

O Madho, if You break from me,
then I shall break with You.
And if I break from You,
to whom shall I then go?

If You are the lamp,
then I am the wick.
If You are the shrine,
then I am the pilgrim.

My love for You
is true and real.
When I fell in love with You,
I gave up my love for others.

Wherever I go,
there I seek to serve You.
No other god
can be a Master like You.

By praising You,
I cut Yama's noose.
Yearning for love
Ravi Dass loudly sings.

 Ravidas

Enlightenment

When practitioners of Zen fail to transcend
the world of their senses and thoughts,
all they do has no value.
Yet, when senses and thoughts are obliterated
all the roads to universal mind are blocked
and there is no entrance.
The primal mind has to be recognised along with the senses and thoughts.
It neither belongs to them nor is independent of them.
Don’t build your understanding on your senses and thoughts,
yet don’t look for the mind separate from your senses and thoughts.
Don’t attempt to grasp Reality by pushing away your senses
and thoughts.
Unobstructed freedom is to be neither attached not detached.
This is enlightenment.
The Real Buddha

People perform a vast number of complex practices
hoping to gain spiritual merit as countless as the grains
of sand on the riverbed of the Ganges:
but you are essentially already perfect in every way.
Don’t try and augment perfection with meaningless practice.
If it’s the right occasion to perform them, let practices happen.
When the time has passed, let them stop.
If you are not absolutely sure that mind is the Buddha,
and if you are attached to the ideas of winning merit from spiritual practices,
then your thinking is misguided and not in harmony with the Way.
To practice complex spiritual practices is to progress step by step:
but the eternal Buddha is not a Buddha of progressive stages.
Just awaken to the one Mind,
and there is absolutely nothing to be attained.
This is the real Buddha.

 Huang Po

The only way to communicate is in love, through silence.
But nobody hows to be in love and nobody knows how to be in silence.
We are so full of knowledge, communication is impossible.
Language is one of the reasons there is so much misundertanding in the world.

Understanding is bliss, misunderstanding is the cause of misery.

Misunderstanding  is the stepping stone towards confusion, chaos.
Is it that we are talking too much, in that incessant chatter, that we surpass our realms of beautiful silence
and step into the dark clouds of meaningless thoughts,
each word is like a thunderbolt, sometimes it misses our mind ,
but Lo behold, when it does strike we are astonished at the interpretations.

Osho

Dear Jewell,

Silence is golden and it is equivalent to thousands of words. Love is Sivam. Anbe Sivam, - says Tirumoolar. Alright, how can
we love others? Unless one loves one's own Self within, he cannot love others. He can not see that others are also the Self.

Once a Pandit (knowledgeable in scriptures)  came to the Hall. He was talking to the members of the Hall for hours together.
He came like that for 10 days and kept on talking. Sri Bhagavan was quite patient while others were restless.  They were thinking:
When we have learnt the direct method, why all these indirect methods?

After 10 days, the Pandit came and sat in silence. He did not speak a word on that day. He was listening to Sri Bhagavan's words
here and there. Sri Bhagavan said: The Pandit has also become like us. All laughed.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Sri Subramanian sir,

It is a Beautiful story. And silence is indeed true comunion,because,it is comunion of consciousness itself,where is no need for words.
And yes,true love is only possible if we see the Self or God in everyone.

Dawn is a Friend

Dawn is a friend who comes to rouse the lover from grief,
And enemy, for from his pain he wants no relief.

Without separation's pain how can he be aware
Of the Beloved's presence in the perfumed air?

The deep night breathes quietly as a woman sleeping;
In the silence of it song's harvest spirit is reaping.

With the rising of the sun the world's day begins,
The day of the market and gossip -- the sowing of sins.

In the daylight of the world the lover is like a fish
Hooked and thrown up on the burning sand to writhe and perish.

He longs for the ocean of night with its islands of stars,
And the white hand of his Beloved that heals the day's scars.

In the silence continues the siege of the Beloved's beauty;
And his soul's sigh steals out and goes on sentry duty.

Francis Brabazon

The Child Angel

Let your life come amongst them like a flame of light, my child,
unflickering and pure, and delight them into silence.

They are cruel in their greed and their envy,
their words are like hidden knives thirsting for blood.

Go and stand amidst their scowling hearts, my child,
and let your gentle eyes fall upon them like the
forgiving peace of the evening over the strife of the day.

Let them see your face, my child, and thus know the
meaning of all things, let them love you and love each other.

Come and take your seat in the bosom of the limitless, my child.
At sunrise open and raise your heart like a blossoming flower,
and at sunset bend your head and in silence
complete the worship of the day.

 Rabindranath Tagore
