- I was inspired to post some of sri Chinmoy's comments on these sweetest gifts.
"Each bird embodies a prayerful and soulful heartbeat of my earthly
"When you look at them, think that these birds have come down all the
way from Heaven to be of service to our Lord Supreme. This will help
you to imagine your own soul, which is Immortality's representative
on earth, and to feel that your own soul has also come from Heaven to
serve your Beloved Supreme."
"Think of yourself as the most beautiful bird flying in the skies of
freedom. This freedom is nothing other than constant oneness with
our Lord Supreme. This freedom is not in destroying something or
showing your supremacy. This freedom is the freedom of oneness,
universal oneness. This we get only when we love God in God's own
Way, only when we love God to please Him is His own Way. It is in
our inseparable oneness, sleepless oneness with the Will of the
Supreme that we get the message of freedom, infinite freedom."
"The more you think of your soul, the more progress you will be able
to make here on earth. This is the supreme secret: the more you
think of your soul, the faster you can make progress. And these
birds embody the soul-consciousness in full measure."
