“It is only where the light and shadow meet, we can see the beauty of both the light and the shadow!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan
I found a place where Dark and Light,
Exposed; they’d fled from the maladies
And in the dark,
Light will say
“I’ll shine your darkened fears away!”
And Dark’s kindness
shrouds the light,
so souls can rest
and regain sight.
Then when at last darkness ends,
and Dark transcends.
They are conjoined in harmony,
where there is found no acrimony.
they extol each other,
their breath entwines like formless lovers.
Their dance makes the stars
and bodes the winds
Because Light knows the
need for rest
and in the dark, deep roots
Without the light, Dark can’t expose
the flaws hidden
in deep repose.
And without the dark,
Light cannot grow
and find its ease
in the ebb and flow..
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi
The river of life flows abundantly,
dazzling my eyes.
Cascading through my interior,
springs in me arise.
I touch the surface perceptively,
and see my reflection in You.
The transparent shades of majesty,
an irresistible hue.
Streams of living water permeates,
the confluences of my mind.
I let go of all obsessing
and in grace I become enshrined.
As I plunge into sacred moments,
I’m immersed in love’s allure.
Allowing the river to take me
so that fear becomes obscure.
It fills my empty spaces,
there is no beginning and no end.
A mysterious force of nature,
allowing me to transcend.
“It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters,”
― Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations
Waking on the wrong side of the bed,
declined by despair.
Living life in the fold of love,
on a wing and a prayer.
Counting every blessing
as dust falls from somber eyes.
Equanimity grows louder
leaden mood vaporized
Reaching out to the moment
and letting tranquility flow.
Shadows get subjugated,
I’m lit up by an inner glow.
Each waking moment on this planet
has severity of its own.
Looking around at transformed Earthlings,
I realize I’m not alone.
