Meditation in May

Meditation in May

Reverence to the Father who is also the Mother
Reverence to the Sadaiyon
Reverence to the Sakthi
Reverence to the secret
Reverence to Love in action.

To serve in Love, and practicing this reverence
The mystery He had proclaimed
Not just to know but to practice
The highest of virtues
This is a mystery too.

It is this reverence to the Father who is also the Mother
Whose grace that keeps us safe from temptation
For anyone who embarks seriously to unravel the Mystery
Which the trickster, the stealer lures us away from
Its power to transform envied hence tested.

Not to serve in temptation, fear or reverence of the earthly kings
Is the due reverence to the Father who is also the Mother deserve
Wickedness lays wait, offering everything imaginable
Anything but to listen to the Father who is also the Mother
Whenever love in action grew the kingdom had almost become visible.

Not to writhe in pain of foreign rulers, who lay siege every domain
Their soothing love, compassion and delivery of justice the steadfast see
It is the Sadiyon that the stealer and the allies fear, so they set traps
For Sadiyon delivers justice which they fear will bring peace
The power to transform hate to love, and practice justice and mercy grew.

No false proclamations, no deceit or doubts, but total reverence
See God’s love in all that you see, only cast your eyes down when praying for salvation
When you speak with the power of the eyes, and begin to see, he lays a few more traps
Worried that his allies the merchants of death begin to suffer loses
When the door between the eyes open, Sakthi comes with her consort and dwells within.

Watch the eyes, ears, throat, mouth, hands, feet, and skin
These seven doors when left unwatched, that sin finds its way in
For the heart is connected with each, which the stealer knows
They conspire to offer allurements and stimulations for each
Why fear when I am here, the Father who is also the Mother gently reminds from within.

God is One. God is a pair. God is three, four or five, six or seven, why speculate.
Perfect the heart for it empowers all seven gates
Finding the treasure within submit yourself to the Father who is also the Mother
Find the words that help perfect the heart, and keep the stealer at bay
Hearing the gentle reminder, walk lightly and walk with a smile.

In every place God dwells. In every time. In the here and in the now.
At this time know God, in the place that you are
Not for wanting something, not for asking something, not fearing the stealer
Just know, and serve in reverence and with love
And know that it is what the Father who is also the Mother wanted from you.

It is said the heart of the true devotee is the most desired dwelling place of God
It is the throne, the city, the palace, the mountain, the lake and the ocean
Rejoice and celebrate your delivery from the stealer
Setting yourself free, by being bound to the Father who is also the Mother
Experience this mystery, liberation through love and service.

How thirsty can i get for waves
To keep washing my feet and legs
Even when half-asleep,
Wanting the refreshing caresses to continue
How thirsty am i to seek blessings
Of the Ocean that refuses no river
Even when half-awake
Wanting the soothing cleansing to continue

When the moon rose high up that night
Causing the ocean to gasp and surge
I felt my soul reach its home
In the ocean, with the ocean.

From the distant shores i heard whispers
Of the silenced and the vanquished
Their stories forming patterns and motifs
On the surf and receding waters
How much more blood and ashes are we to wash
How much more horrors are we to bear
I hear the incessant pleading continue
Justice, will help soothe the wounds
I heard the ocean whisper deep into my aching heart
Sometimes when things go too far we have to rise and reorganize
I heard whispers from among the receding waves

Defeat is not the end
The truth is
What had happened
Was not the full-stop
It certainly is no conclusion
Just containment, a comma
The truth is
What is to happen
Will not stop either
The struggle to be treated fairly and equally
The struggle for dignity and respect
Will unleash a million creative movements
For justice and peace to reign

Lose no hope
A distant droplet spoke
Before merging with the ocean
Back on its celestial journey
To visit another people
To witness other stories,
To hear other truths...
