Mindful Musings: Mar 10

The indescribable unity

Intricate beads of awareness

The bliss of an intertwined Cosmos

Brimming with the wisdom

Of all the sages

Throughout eternity

Stopping at nothing

To give us the gift

Of blessings on the path

To wholeness and peace…..

Like the Sun’s rays

Nourishing souls

An offering

It’s selfless essence

And guiding light

Opens hearts

To the pinnacle of truth

On this epic journey….

Bridging worlds

Between the form and formless

Beyond the mind

Beyond the thoughts


Stands Lord Ganesh

Removal of all obstacles

Shepherding us to that place

Where Brahman reigns supreme

Awaiting our coming

To this moment

When we remember

Who we were before we were born

In these bodies

To dance and rejoice

With the Beloved once again.

Good Friends

Are like Hidden gems

Sacred star dust

And the gift of family

That you choose….

Who can understate the blessing

Of a true friendship few will ever know?

As time marches on,

And as our bodies grow old

Our souls will always remember the day

That we met our best friend

And it will smile and say:

Thank you, God,

For all the love in my life.
