A smile so bright
Envelops me in light
Reverberating my soul with its endless echo
Love, love, love
A timeless love so sweet and enduring
A timeless love based on truth and trust
A timeless love that cannot be taken away
It’s inside each and every one of us every minute of every day
Feel the light to remember the truth
Love is not something to give and take
But our very essence, reminding us every move we make
The same seeds lie within all of us fallible beings
Om, Krishna, Hare Krishna
The great leveller reveals our true Selves
In devotion we see the truth in each other’s eyes
How can we act in any way but love when we realize
We are love.
We are all love.
Life is impermanent. Love is not.
Where one of us ends, the other begins
Our collective soul will never die
To know love is to know eternity
Love to live to live to love.
Fertilize the ground for your own deliverance
plant your strength amidst the barren dirt
seeds immersed deep in the Earth
sprout with joyful exuberance
awakening life all around it
bringing the promise of newness
of change and beginnings
growing only upwards
towards the Sun
opening its petals in prayer
receiving, blossoming and becoming
just being there
always at home in the world
the Flower allows itself to bloom.
The Earth cycles around It, in it, through it
together the Flower and the World exist of each other
for each other.
One petal falls.
Another does too.
The Flower gazes down lovingly
at the Soil below
mesmerized by its birthplace It plunges
the Earth opens and accepts It
just as it is
they are One.
The Earth transforms it and Blessed Be
It becomes again!
Only this time with different petals.
