Relationship

Image result for beautiful relationship

It is one thing to woo your lover with the flicker of a candlelight dinner;

it is astonishingly different to look deeply with her, into her wants, desires, aspirations, dreams, and insecurities.

What gives the little girl within Her a girlish laugh? And the dimple in the corner of her mouth when she smiles?

What lights her eyes?

And which miscalculations of yours flood her eyes with tears of disappointment?

And are you milling to muster enough sincerity to even attempt an apology that renews and even strengthens love?

Some scheme for the quick gratification of sexual orgasm, not knowing that Relationship means a lifetime of moments spent together–negotiating, building together, creating or sometimes destroying trust, just to realize a moment later that your life is not whole without Her…

I am coming to know that Relationship means a lifelong meditation on love.

May Love Bring Peace,

Ocean–A World Unseen

================================================================

An astronaut once told me that if I ascended four miles up, I would experience blissful weightlessness.

Today, I experienced an inverse universe, a world hidden under the oceans that descends four miles down, a world that covers two-thirds of our globe. There I was weightlessly tumbling, hearing only the One Sound of Haum which might be the only music that the fish have heard.

The current carried me to a frontier where aquamarine turned to a dark blue; and that’s where the canyons and mountains suddenly dropped into depths beyond a mile.

This society of the underworld, has withdrawn itself from ours. Down here, there is a Law of Oneness in peace with no racial prejudice; in fact there are more races and rainbows swimming than any earthling has ever seen. They all swim amongst each other, inter-weaving in and out of shared castles. They nibble on corals all day as if cuisine is a life-long meditation.

Here, there are no fights nor worries of a recession, just surrendered generosity flowing out of the certainty that the Whole will provide for its parts. Each part gives itself to another so that the Whole may survive–and all this sacrifice without any funerals and grief.

There are those dressed like tigers and others wearing mud; some are long as  buses, and there is a school of shimmering minnows shaped like a spoon that a baby shark takes into her mouth. 

A plump one dressed in an evening gown of violet and blue floats to my face, mouth opening and closing, obviously conversing, but without our Iphones, us humans can’t interpret a thing..

Off the pier, a Sri Lankan fisherman dips his chocolate toes into the sea; it is in this sea-salt that he was first baptized and today as the sun goes down, his fishing line hangs on the certainty that dinner is coming…

Missing Heaven?

Image result for heaven is right here in the midst of you

Sometimes the mind says:

I want to immigrate to somewhere sunny;

I want to change this old car;

I want a younger lover to make me feel young;

I need to toss my wardrobe because I am sick of these old clothes;

I could have done more with my life…

 

But when the heart opens to self-love, to a Conscious God Force pulsing everywhere, 

then, the song of the village rooster is enough;

a snow-capped mountain is a majestic testament;

a warm hug is all the safety in this world;

and sleeping with a calm conscious is like owning a diamond.

 

You might be living in heaven now, yet insisting on finding it elsewhere!
