      "I thought I loved You, my Lord.
      But now that I am allowing myself
      To see, I see that I am still running
      Away from You.
      I see that I am shyness incarnate.

      What kind of love is it, my Lord?
      I see that I am still
      Playing the old game of hiding.

      Like this bird -
      Burying it's head in the ground,

      Like the fish in the glass-bowl
      Swimming up and down
      Pretending to be invisible.

      Like the child in the play-ground
      Ignoring the Father Supreme
      Watching over it.

      What kind of love is it, my Lord?
      Please, tell me."

      "No my child,
      Every day you are daring a new attempt
      Of loving Me infinitely more than you
      Love me now.
      And something else:
      My patience-Love-Light
      Lasts for all Eternity."

        Doris,

        I only wish you and many other disciple-poets are keeping an archive of the poetry posted here! All your poems seem to express vividly that your spiritual life, under the loving guidance of Guru, has made itself shine through written word as well. And in these words they are most conforting for the yearning heart or mind of a brother disciple. I sincerely hope that someday I could find them encapsuled in a nice hardcover. They definitely remind me of Sri Chinmoy - this is in itself really something! :D

        It might seem strange that sometimes we might want to have our own deeds published/manifested, since Guru wrote over 1.500 books, composed over 20.000 songs, painted millions of birds plus Jharna-Kala artworks and so on. But yet, when lecturing on meditation and the spiritual life, instead of saying all the time "My Master said" we use terms such as "It is known that", "It is a general principle", ... (which, because of the oneness-heart and universality of a spiritual Master, is also true). So also, as long as they
        are fueled by sincere aspiration, our own aspiration-hearts and dedication-lives are tiny inspiration-baits that may lead people to harmony and/or sincere seekers to the feet of their Guru (whoever One is his), just as the Life of the spiritual Master is a Compassion-
        Magnet unerribly drawing His disciples to the Golden Shore.

        "Impossibility-trees
        Do not grow
        In my God-surrender-heart-garden."
        - Sri Chinmoy

        (# 26915 from Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 270 by Sri Chinmoy)

        I never know the words, but I feel "really lucky" to share this lifetime with Guru and my fellow disciples and friends.

        A spiritual life, no matter what kind of beginner you are, is always all God's Grace.

        With gratitude to all,
        Israel

          Dear Israel,

          This is so nicely said. It even seems to me Someone is speaking through your words - no flattery. Thank you very much.

          Allow me to write another poem that seems to go well with the one
          before:

          I stepped into a paddle - day-dreaming,
          And spilled some waters around.
          But instead of getting insulted by passers-by
          They handed me handkerchiefs
          To dry up my trousers.

          "My Lord,
          Do you want me to express my gratitude
          And apologize to them?"

          "My child,
          Go on! March and run!
          Don't waste your precious time.
          I will take care of everything."

          Doris
