How wonderful Thy compassion is O' Lord,
Thou appear as Mother, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as Father, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as brother, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as friend, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as Guru, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as me, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear beyond me, when i beseech Thee,
Thou art always overflowing with compassion!
Thou feed me, when hunger calls,
What good did thou makest of i,
that i deserved Thou?
Thou loved me, out of
Thy compassion,
not even i, thought of you, but
Thou always thought of me!
what can i repay to Thou?
For, Thou even asketh not, and
possess not a thing do i.

stray thought...

it is our limited intelligence that limits us, it is wise to allow the supreme intelligence to reign over.

There is no "our intelligence" apart from supreme intelligence. What we think "our intelligence" also belongs to Supreme. That realization is all that is needed - not being afraid of "intelligence" and running away from it :).

Whose realization are you talking about? :)

No comments on your above expression!

See the twist :) you made. I never talked about "any person's" realization in my sentence and yet you asked "Whose" ? I just said "That realization". 

So no more arguments and focus back on Sadhana :) for me. I just deviated from the path I like to follow :)

Sri Sanjay :) whose realization is a pointer, pointing out, whose realization are you talking about, who is it, that needs to be enquired, not as what you have made it out to be!

That realization is all that is needed

the realization is all that is needed, you have said, then question follows, who is it that needs to be realized, the answer would be 'I', who am I, has to follow, without sticking to this, do you see the plays of the intellect? it is only maya, deviating one from tapas and taking one away from adhering to the teachings of Bhagavan.

Kindly introspect slowly, before coming to hasty conclusions.

One of the most beautiful creation or expression is that of the ego's helplessness and submission as a natural consequence of His Presence, of its absolute inability and nothingness before Him and bows its very existence, which is.

Now you’ll rest forever
my weary heart. The last illusion has died
I thought eternal. Died. I feel, in truth,
not only hope, but desire
for dear illusion has vanished.
Rest forever. You’ve laboured
enough. Not a single thing is worth
your beating: the earth’s not worthy
of your sighs. Bitter and tedious,
life is, nothing more: and the world is mud.
Be silent now. Despair
for the last time. To our race Fate
gave only death. Now scorn Nature,
that brute force
that secretly governs the common hurt,
and the infinite emptiness of all.


(Leopardi, Translated by A. S. Kline)

Words, the levers, be my sweet signal
to all negatives, all denial,
renew the root-depths, clear the channels,
with beauty, grace, lay out the form,
and from the single step, the twig,
each bud, each line, lift from the earth
some shape of what we are, some sign.


(A. S. Kline)

To stand there
alone
on the up-slope
of milky rock
and bent fir.
To be there alone
in a caul of thought
memory,
intimate
break, from the quick
life, to ancient space:
and there be consumed.


(A. S. Kline)

stray thought...

Path itself is myth (Maya), and naming those path as bhakti jnana karma etc..,  becomes myth of myth (Maya of Maya) - double myth (Double Maya) :D

and seeing them as different, would be the Triple myth (Maya) - myth of myth of myth (Maya of Maya of Maya) :D

Think of you, I think, in the
stillnesses between breaths.
(Clouds, ah, pines and birches,
slopes white ice to the light)
 
Meditate on you, around you,
through stone tree silences.
(Brown paths, misted hills,
snow like foam in the air)
 
Contemplate, in the space
beyond words, you, and you.
(Hedges, boughs frosted silver
their light, white smoke breath)


(A. S. Kline)

A Fairy Song


Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

William Shakespeare
