20863What happens behind the Curtain of Eternity?
- Oct 28, 2007Last nigth at our international gathering near Heidelberg
(not quite a Joy Day this time although with lots of smiling
faces and a very special feeling of peace and oneness like in
New York during the memorial week) we watched a very special
TV-interview that Guru offered thanks to Amritananda many
years ago about "What happens behind the Curtain of Eternity"
and Guru's answers - often given with eyes wide open -
produced quite a few smiles and chuckles. (While Projjwal's
beautiful retrospective slide show of moments with Guru
shortly afterwards produced lots of handkerchief-noises).
Here is the link - sorry I don't know how to change it into a short
Guru about being caught between absence and presence:
O Lord, Thy absence has measureless power.
Pangs of bitter failures rage through my mind.
Hot knives stab through my heart with every breath.
I know, I know, I am the eternal blind.
O Lord, Thy Presence has fathomless power.
Who says my soul is limp with black despair?
Eternity sits at my feet like a slave,
And Death, a weeping child-helpless, bare.
