 Whispers from Eternity ............
 on: April 08, 2009, 03:33:00 pm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today I randomly opened the book " Whispers from Eternity "

and this was what was " whispering " to me.......I hope it also speaks to you.

Come to me as Swami Shankara

Swami Shankara, thou dazzling star,
soaring in wisdom's dark skies
thou hast shed thy light
over many souls darkened by religious formalities.

Many sheep of human darkness
have fled before the leonine roar of thy Self - realization.
With Christ, thou hast sung : " I am He,"
" Thou art That ", " I and my Father are One "
and awakened us from our material sleep.

Thou first exponent of " matter exists not as it appears to be "
we pay homage to thee.

O Swami of Swamis, thou didst teach us
to behold the one ocean of Spirit,
hidden beneath the dancing,
melting waves of finite forms.

I love the visuals when reading from Whispers....
it is like Yogananda is painting a picture with his words.

PRAYER AT DAWN

" With the opening of the  earliest dawn and the lotus buds, my soul softly opens in prayer to receive Thy light. Bathe each petal of my mind with Thy radiant rays ! I saturate myself with the perfume of Thy presence, and I wait to waft with the breeze the aroma of Thy message of love to all. Bless me, that with the spreading dawn I may spread Thy love everywhere. Bless me, that with the awakening dawn I may awaken all souls with my own and bring them to Thee. "

May your day be filled with blessings from the Guru !

You are welcome Steve. "Whispers from Eternity" is one of my favorite of Yogananda's books. Sometimes when I sit in silent meditation, especially when outdoors, it is like the wind is whispering from Yogananda to me

Title: the Caravan of my prayers .....
Post by: Katze on May 17, 2009 04:50 pm
" The Caravan of my prayers is moving toward Thee.
In the kind eyes of all men, I notice sparks of Thy mercy.
The trees of dark lives flicker with a myriad of glow-worms of Thy shining life.
The caravan of my prayers has been slowly working its way through the furious
sandstorms of despondency.
Yet, at last, the glimpse of the oasis of Thy silent assurance has roused my drooping efforts.
I will dip my thirsty lips of faith, and drink deep from Thy well of bliss."
(P.Yogananda)

Todays Whispers from Eternity ~ opening the book randomly

"take the lessons"  ;)

WHEREVER WE GO

"Whether in HImalayan caves or crowded subway
Whether in jungle of modern life or Hindustan
Wherever we go, teach us to discover Thee
In all Thy secret nooks - east,west, north, south,
 -- everywhere"

and this next one reminds me a little bit of you Steve  :)
Beautiful poem

THY DIVINE GYPSY 

"I will be a gypsy-
Roam,roam and roam.
I will sing a song that none has sung !
I will sing to the sky,
I will sing to the winds,
I'll sing to my red clouds !
I'll roam, roam and roam
Kind of the lands thru which I roam.

By day the shady trees will be my tent.
At night the stars shall be
My candles, twinkling in the firmament
And I will call the moon to be my lamp
And light my silver, skiey camp.
I will be a gypsy
Roam, roam and roam.

I will eat the food which chance may bring
I will drink from the crystal sparkling spring
I will doff my cap and off will go
Like a wayward brook of long ago,
I will roll o'er the green
And scatter the joy of all my heart
To birds, leaves, winds, hills - then depart
To stranger and stranger lands from East to West
Oh ! I will be a gypsy
Roam, roam and roam.

But always, when I lay me down to rest
I'll sing to Thee my gypsy prayer
And find Thee, always, everywhere ! "

blessings be with you always,
Into Blue

Thou art so plainly Present everywhere; I bow to Thee

When I dance with the waves, dear Heavenly Father, I am dancing with Thee. Every day I see Thee painting the sky with bright colors
I watch Thee clothe the bare soil with green grass.
Thou art in the sunshine.
O, Thou art so plainly present everywhere!
I bow to Thee.

Steve, interesting that after speaking about meditation in the other thread, and your suggestion to post something from "Whispers from Eternity " that I should open the book to poems about the 3rd eye. There are 3 poems, I would like to share (3, 3rd eye - something about 3 ) Ok, you know I just had to look up #3 in my Angel numbers book.... which says " The Ascended Masters are near. They've responded to your prayers and want to help you. " .... now isn't that timely ?

KEEP MY SPIRITUAL EYE OPEN FOREVER
"O Spiritual Eye, once opened, always remain open before me, that I may avoid the pitfalls in the path of life and take the highway which leads to Thy palace of peace. Show me the solutions of all my problems."

DEMAND FOR THE  RISING OF THE AURA OF INTUITION
"Infinite Spirit,Thy presence is hidden equally behind the warm rays of the sun and the cool moonbeams. These lights which reveal only dame nature's gorgeous robe of matter, and not Thee, are but darkness to me. Thus, Thine all -revealing great light hides behind the darkness of matter-revealing lights. Take this darkness away ! When I sit with eyes closed, surrounded by my own darkness, cause no blaze upon me in spendor the aurora of intuition, that in its light I may watch Thee with worshipping eyes."

DEMAND for the OPENING of the SPIRITUAL EYE , the EASTERN STAR of WISDOM
"Bless me Father, that I may behold the Eastern star of wisdom. May it gleam before my human eyes alike in daylight and in gloom. My eyes were long blinded by the tinsel-glitter of material things. Always seeing such things outwardly, I saw not the Spirit hidden within it. The third eye of my wisdom is now being opened. Keep it, Thou, always open. Let that single eye of realization lead me to behold, through all veils of matter, the infinite presence of Christ, everywhere. Bless me, that the sacred wise thoughts in me, following this star of knowledge, meet the Christ in everything."

Thank you Steve for leading me back to this book, Yogananda writes such beautiful poems, at times his words bring tears to my eyes. And the synchronicity of the poems that I choose randomly, always amazes me, in their connection to reality.

time for more Whispers......
I bow to Thee in the sunshine, breeze, dawn, and hearts of Loving Friends


" Dear Heavenly Father,
when I am thirsty and drink the cool water
it is Thou who dost give its life to me.

When I bathe and am refreshed,
I feel Thy cleansing, refreshing power in the water made by Thee.

When the sunshine falls upon my face,
I feel Thy loving, warm touch.

I bow to Thee in the sunshine, in the breeze,
in the dawn, in the noon, in the evening light,
and in the hearts of loving friends. "

Title: Divine Mother
Post by: Katze on Sep 12, 2009 06:39 pm
Divine Mother, come Thyself into the waiting Temple of our Love

" Divine Mother, be Thou the only flame in our hearts burning away all darkness within us.
Divine Mother be Thou the fragrance ever exuding from the vase of our hearts and permeating the nooks of devoted souls whom we love.

In the tears of our love for Thee, wash away all our love for material possessions.
In the tears of communion with Thee, wash away all sorrow forevermore.

Divine Mother, unite our little hearts into a greater heart for Thine omnipresence to rest in, forever and ever. Teach us to behold ourselves as perfect in the mirror of Thy divinity.Let the flame of our love for Thee soar triumphantly above the little hissing flames of earthly desires.

O Divine Mother, may the shooting star of our love for Thee race gloriously through the dark skies of forgetfulness, even as thunders of boisterous daily activities burst within us.

Divine Mother, temples, organizations, money, a million distractions, have come in Thy divine role to delude us. ' Tis time that Thou dost come Thyself into the waiting Temple of our love.

O! Be Thou the pole-star of our wandering activity in the dark night of ignorance, leading us safely to our haven in Thee. "

Thank-You so much Into Blue for spending the time to write these. It seems i have prayed so much lately. We seem to forget the miracles we have already experienced in our lives and wonder when our prayers will be anwered. i have been thinking about this so much this morning. Yet then i read this. Is not God with us at every turn? "Yet, at last, the glimpse of the oasis of Thy silent assurance has roused my drooping efforts." i am assured once again by the master speaking to me/us. Never think that your posts are not guided by the hand of God. He is helping others thru us as well that is the beauty of recognizing his presence.

Title: Today's whispers
Post by: Katze on Sep 30, 2009 06:26 am
Demand for realizing the expansion of consciousness in the Cosmic Sound

" Manifest Thyself to me, O Father, as the light of reason,
as the blaze of wisdom, as the breeze of amity and harmony.

Manifest Thyself through the song of atoms and electrons,
and the vibration of their music.

Teach me to hear Thy voice- Thy Cosmic Voice
which commanded all vibration to spring forth,
which commanded each melody to sing its own song
I want to hear Thy cosmic voice, undrowned by creation's multitudinous songs.

The magic wand of meditation touches all sounds, and melts them
into the One cosmic sound of Aum  --
coursing down the earth, down the sky, and down the stars.

Appear to me as Aum, Aum, the cosmic sound of all sounds.
All tissues of my body, all cords of my nerves, now sing Thy cosmic song of Aum ! "


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I like this part   "The magic wand of meditation touches all sounds, and melts them into the One cosmic sound of Aum  --
coursing down the earth, down the sky, and down the stars. "



Title: Opening of the Spiritual Temple Doors
Post by: Katze on Oct 16, 2009 08:50 pm
Opening of the Spiritual Temple Doors everywhere

O Father, when I was blind I found not a door which led to Thee,
but now that Thou has opened my eyes, I find doors everywhere;
through the hearts of flowers,
through the voice of friendship,
through sweet memories of all lovely experiences.

Every gust of my prayer opens an unentered door in the vast temple of Thy presence.


Title: Wherever We Go
Post by: Katze on Oct 18, 2009 05:47 pm
Wherever We Go

"Whether in Himalayan caves or crowded subway,
Whether in jungle of modern life or Hindustan,
Wherever we go, teach us to discover Thee
In all Thy secret nooks - east, west, north, south
  -  Everywhere. "


Title: Listen to my Soul Song
Post by: Katze on Nov 04, 2009 07:54 pm
Listen to my Soul Song

" Come ....Listen to my soul-song!
The darkness burst,
And Thy descending shafts of light
Pierced the hearts of gloom
To listen to my soul-song.

Behind the screen of my eyes,
Though hidden Thou art,
Thou dost remain unseeen
To listen to my soul-song.

Burst the veil ! Burst the blue !
Burst all lights !
And come to me as Thou art,
To listen to my soul-song.

Burst my senses and my mind!
Burst my heart and feeling !
Burst my silence and my soul
To listen to my soul-song.

Burst the heart ! Burst the sky !
Burst the soul !
And come, listen to my soul- song,
Come, listen to my soul-song!

In the breeze I feel Thy touch;
In the sun, Thy warm love;
In the colorful scenery, Thy beauty face;
In the waves, I see Thee dancing -
Dancing, ever anon!
Thou art dancing o'er my thoughts
To listen to my soul-song.

Listen to my soul- song !
Break the heart, break the sky, break the soul !
Come listen to my soul-song!
Hovering o'er the clouds
Lingering o'er the lea-
Thou hast come
To listen to my soul-song.

Beneath the gloom of my dim devotion
Hidden Thou dost remain
To listen to my soul- song."

How can one not feel that Yogananda is "speaking" to them, when one hears " whispers from Eternity " ?

"In the breeze I feel Thy touch;

   ;) You have given (k)new meaning to 'Whispers from Eternity' Sometimes it is better to be decorations in the environment then to speak foolishly  :-\ when we do not understand  :D Yet we also need to sharpen our ears to hear more and more clearly the sound of the infinite and make imagination the reality that we experience in every day life.  ;)

Whispers in living color .......

"The fire of my ambition and all my rainbow dreams, are for Thee"

"The fire of ambition has been waxing strong, fed by the fuel of my rainbow-dreams.
As often as old dreams faded, fresh diehard hopes burst into new, thirsty flames,
that swallowed up many a sturdy tree of my fresh powers.

My garden was green with life. Now, gray ghosts of half-dead vitalities glide amid dark doubts,
to frighten my timid footsteps marching toward Thee.

Come Thou to my aid, Divine Friend, and usher me ever forward with Thee. "

Post by: Katze on Dec 23, 2009 10:25 am
I find parts of it confusing, for example:

"fresh diehard hopes burst into new, thirsty flames,
that swallowed up many a sturdy tree of my fresh powers"

and

"Now, gray ghosts of half-dead vitalities glide amid dark doubts"



Title: thoughts
Post by: Katze on Dec 23, 2009 10:33 am
"The fire of my ambition and all my rainbow dreams, are for Thee"

I think the above is talking about a person dedicating all that they are doing, their work, whatever, dedicating this to God or Guru. This includes all the variety of dreams, goals, that a person has in their life. Not talking about dreams, as nighttime dreams or desires.

"Fire of ambition " could mean, strong desire, intention for connecting with God or Guru, such as deep spiritual practices, meditation, etc.

and what are your thoughts on this, Steve ?

While looking for the poem Live to Learn requested, I thought it was time to listen to the "Whispers " again....
so I opened the book randomly and this is what I found (most appropriate I thought in connection with reading the SRF lessons)

DEMAND TO TRAVEL ON THE ONE HIGHWAY OF REALIZATION

" Our one Father, we are travelling by many true paths unto Thy one abode of Light.
Show us the one highway of common realization, where all bypaths of theological beliefs meet.
Make us feel that the diverse religions are branches of Thy one tree of truth.
Bless us that we may enjoy the intuition-tested, ripe, luscious fruits of self knowledge,
hanging from all the branches of manifold scriptural teachings.

In Thy one temple of silence, we are singing unto Thee a chorus of many-voiced religions.
Teach us to chant in harmony our love's many expressions unto Thee,
that our melody of souls may rouse Thee to break Thy vows of silence
and lift us upon Thy lap of universal understanding and immortality
."


Title: Birthday Whispers
Post by: Katze on Jan 05, 2010 11:35 am
Birthday Whispers from Yogananda ~
after reading Live to Learn's Birthday Greeting thread, and Jitendra's Divine Abundance Prayer by Yogananda, I was drawn to choose a Birthday Whisper and this one- is so appropriate to the " now ". I can hear him speaking to me, on this timely topic of mediation, as encouragement in where I am at with the lessons, like individualized guidance.

And tonight especially this last part " Each feeling-flame will hum with the presence of His love, everywhere and will wake the sleeping ones to hear His ever-calling voice, saying: " Come home ! "  ;)


Sacred Demands to the Infinite
(Demands for Developing Cosmic Consciousness)



"O! You  who have come to the portals of these prayers:

Pass not by in haste. Enter and bathe in the sacred pool of God-love,

hidden behind the ramparts of meditation.



Every day, take one prayer- demand at a time, and read it carefully.

First get the intellectual concept, then concentrate upon it,

addressing it to God by deep, unceasing, forceful mental whispers.



At last, the demand will become individualized.

Fragrant flower-thoughts will blossom from the original prayer-plant,

thoughts born of concentration and watered by the divine dew of meditation.



Each word, if it is a word, shall wear, for you, a garment of burning flame.

Each word will be a guiding torchlight in the procession of prayer- thoughts marching to God.

Each word will spread flames to light the path of some lost brother on the way.

Each word- flame will sing a song that He has sung.

Each word-flame will reveal some lost gem of truth.

Each word-flame will illumine some dark corner of the mind.

Each thought-flame will, in silence, pour forth sermons of His sacredness.

Each feeling-flame will hum with the presence of His love, everywhere and

will wake the sleeping ones to hear His ever-calling voice, saying : " Come home ! "


Title: Pearls of Wisdom in the Sea of Meditation
Post by: Katze on Feb 23, 2010 06:08 pm
Today I heard a whisper, telling me .........
" Time to read my lessons, Into Blue . Yogananda is speaking to you !"  ;) LOL !

so I opened the book, Whispers of Eternity to the following ~
and as always seems to happen, it goes right to the page of a topic,  something I need to hear at that moment in time

Demand for Pearls of Wisdom to be obtained in the Sea of Meditation

"Father Divine, teach me to dive deep in the ocean of meditation for the pearls of wisdom.
Teach me to plunge headlong, armored with the diving suit of conscience, that the sharks of passion may not destroy me.
If I find not the wisdom-pearls by one or two divings, teach me not to call the sea of meditation devoid of the pearls of Thy wisdom.
Rather teach me to find fault with my diving.
Teach me to dive again and again in meditation, deeper and deeper always, until I find Thine immortal pearls of wisdom and divine joy. "



Title: Mayest Thou reinforce our blended Prayers
Post by: Katze on Mar 24, 2010 03:23 am
todays whispers......

" Mayest Thou reinforce our blended Prayers.

The streamlets of our prayers, rushing out together from our hearts,
are joined in one mighty flow.
These wide and deep-flooded rivers of our prayers are moving swiftly
in search of Thine oceanic presence.

Our flood is breaking through embankments of indifference,
intoxicating human habits and world- delusions.
Our flood is rushing thru sands of human oblivion,
and is bounding thru vast traces of trials and life- experiences.

Yet Thy shores seem far off, and our thirsty flood is impatiently,
yet doggedly, seeking Thy shining vastness.
Pour, Thou, the unceasing raindrops of Thy mercy.
Reinforce our flood of prayers, and race it triumphantly to Thine ever- waiting shores !"



Title: The Myrrh of Reverence
Post by: Steve Hydonus on Jun 09, 2010 09:53 pm
By Paramahansa Yogananda

I come to thee with folded hands, bowed head, and heart laden with the myrrh of reverence.

From the hearts of all thy other lovers I have distilled a fragrant essence of devotion and mixed the drops with my tears.
In those sacred waters may I batheThy lotus feet.

Thou art my Parents; I am thy child. Thou art the Master; I will obey the silent command of thy voice.

Demand for Recharging Body-Battery

O Spirit, teach us to heal the body by re-charging it with Thy cosmic energy
to heal the mind by concentration and smiles
and the soul by meditation - born intuition.

and in the hearts of loving friends. "
