Instrument of Love - Rise Up



Swami Vishwananda
I want all of you to realize the love of God
that is inside you.
Not only that, I want all of you to become
an instrument of this love and share it around.
Bring it to everybody.
Just by the reflection of your face,
the light will be passed on wherever you go;
this light will be continuously with you.


RISE UP

-Utpalavati-

Sometimes . . . at sunrise
and in starlight, cool and bright
you inexplicitly feel down and sadly depressed.
Then. . .
a family pet comes and sits on your lap,
and you rise up through unconditional love.

Or. . .
When you are working on mundane
financial record documents,
a computer types a sentence on its own.
You did not touch the keys.
And you rise up through
inspirational words of love.

Sometimes . . .
when sitting and communing with the stars
you become one with them
in heartfelt timeless unity,
and peace is restored,
as you rise up through
shanti, shanti, shanti,
peace, peace, peace.

And Sometimes . . . Somewhen . . .
Oh how sweet it is . . .
when rain pounds on your deck outside
as thunder crashes and lightning flashes, and
you feel the storm’s majestic power and beauty,
rising up through being in tune with God’s
eternal power and Divine Love.

Precious moments spent in present time
erase feelings of being depressed where you
have been living in past and future time.

Rise up, rise up, rise up. . .
through living in the Present of All Time,
wherein reside the divine aspects of
your Guruji’s mantra . . .
“Walk the Path of Devotion . . . that of
Love, Patience and Unity . . . Forevermore OM!”

Yes, sometimes there is causeless auspiciousness, having nothing to do with the past,no matter how gloomy it may or may not have been, nor with one´s plans for the future. As Babaji said in a previous post, when time is standing still, we are the happiest, aren´t we?

Dear Readers,
Sorry, these links do not work when placed in this comment section.

To Person who commented that both links for the YouTube video someone left in comments worked...
I clicked again on both links and neither worked. So I must assume that as author of this blog the format is set up so the hyperlink does not work for the author. Good to know, though, that they work for readers :) Thanks
