 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

" 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"  Wink

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  Smiley
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. "

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. "

" 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)

Into Blue

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.
