This poem happened when I was laying on the couch and I felt a sudden surge of vibrant energy, so joyfully filling up my Being.
It made me feel so alive, so happy! I wanted to share this feeling of creative energy. This energy, Prana, is our Universal Life Force, which sustains us all.
I believe, that we all need to express ourselves. We are all Artists. As my Guru, Swami Sivananda, would say:
"We are creators of our Destiny"
So lets follow our Inner Voice, and express our Light: either as Healers, Sages, Doctors, Lawyers, Businessmen, Artists, etc. As long as we express ourselves truly as we are, we will be content and healthy. Namaste, we are One…
Fertile juices overflowing with Joy
Divine Grace raises my eccentric Ecstasy
Pranic Spirit is bubbling in abundant Excitement
The Life of All is full of Vitality, Strength, Vigour
Accelerating creative Cosmic Inspirations
Sweet expressions of the Self
My Soul is blessed with Happiness
Slightly lifted of the earthly Heaviness
Touched by Divine Will, Divine Intelligence
My hearts desire embraced in Devotional Love
Ecstatic universal life force penetrates my Being
The Krishna flute I Am
Hollow, Empty, Open
Free for a momentary caress by the voice of Immortality
Carrying me into heights of Eternal Bliss Divine
Across the oceanic tears of sorrow in tender Joy
I am in Love with You
Again and Again
No matter what
