in whichever way suits them.

May all grow to great wisdom

May all suffering end immediately

and forever.

May we all know that we are God upon the earth.

There was a hole in my heart, not because there was empty space there, but because You were there, and I could not see You.

But You have given me new eyes, and opened them wide, and shone a bright light to guide me.

And I see you, though through profuse tears of joy.

2010 03-24 Bernheim 038Merciful Lord, lead me from the unreal to the Real.

May I never believe that I am this cage of clay.

May the body experience pleasure and suffering as it must, so long as I know who I truly am.

Give me the courage to deny lust and greed and the will to purify my every thought, word, and deed.

May I always remember my Self, my pure and divine Self.

grant me the humility to realize the insignificance of my little self.

May I search every being I encounter and find you dwelling within them.

May I worship you in my every thought, word and deed.

Give me the fortitude to control my scattered mind,

that I may attain the wisdom I need to be of service to all beings.

Give me pure love and devotion for you.

Be near me always.

2013-01-08-(2)-1-3In the shrine of my heart, there are bats and birds roosting in every corner.

There is trash drifting across the floor and dust on everything.

The murti stands in silence under a black sheet.

But how it glimmers through the cloth, like a diamond in the sun, and from the inner sanctum can be heard the small and distant sound of a conch blowing.

Something amazing is about to happen.

Shine, my beautiful Lord.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

2013-03-12 (12)Master, I seek that light which shines in the heart, invisible to the eye, blazing like a thousand suns.

I want that illumination that shines behind all things.

That sun behind the sun.

Grant me the fortitude, the discipline, the renunciation, the devotion to be worthy of this quest.

Grant me freedom from desire and clinging, from ignorance and want, that I may enter into that most blessed state, but not for myself.

May I do it for the world. May we all do it for the world.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

PeekingI’ll find you eventually.

You can hide behind every eye, every heart. Behind every leaf and tree. You can hid in the water and the air, in the music and the birdsong.

You can hide inside my very thoughts, my very soul.

But I will find you. I will keep digging. I will never stop.

I love you. You are mine. This was meant to be.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
