Poems from Mountain Path, Jan.-Mar. 2016:
« on: March 01, 2016, 04:06:24 PM »
Notes to Self - by Upahar:

Inestimable form of things;
 time, and the whirling stars;
these dancing, dying bodies; children of earth,
 our clamor and cry;
river of thought in the shadow land of dream  --
 Love, none of this can veil you.

Invisible the root of this appearing,
 unthinkable the flower;
within, without; belonging still to no one,
 and yet most gladly, marvelously here.

Knowing, unknowing; the empty heart mysteriously
 abounding; a moon through clouds, a blossoming  -
 Love, all of this reveals You.             

***

Arunachala Siva.

The Lap of Love  -  Ana Ramana.

Let me, O God, be most intimate with my own heart.
Relieve me of the crust congealed in crevices.
Lure me into the lap of love
Where you and I abide as One,
And always have.

Why do I resist?
Who is it hides from her real home?
What dream of me keeps me from your truth?
Don't let me stray like a wild dog,
Gnawing on the bone of illusion.

My one wish is for you --
To fall into your arms,  O my Beloved,
To rest in the quiet of your charms.
What is this dream of life but a chance to die
Into the light of your Pure Being?

Let me live as That, while breath still courses through.

I lay my head at your lotus feet,
O Holy Master.
One gaze from you and I am free.
I close my eyes now
That I may truly see.

Arunachala Siva.
