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. "

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.

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. "

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;
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."

   Wink You have given (k)new meaning to 'Whispers from Eternity' Sometimes it is better to be decorations in the environment then to speak foolishly  Undecided when we do not understand  Cheesy 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.  Wink

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. "

What is your take on what he is saying here?

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"

"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 ?

What can this mean " gray ghosts of half-dead vitalities glide amid dark doubts " ?

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
."

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 ! "  Wink


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 ! "

Today I heard a whisper, telling me .........
" Time to read my lessons, Into Blue . Yogananda is speaking to you !"  Wink 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. "

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 !"
