The Master's Smile

When you desire God, God will send you the Master. And, if you desire God, but have a lot of work to do on yourself, of course, you need a Master who is sharp like an arrow to put you in your place, otherwise you will not do it. 

–Swami Vishwananda

The Master’s Smile
Satguru, Prema Avatar Sri Swami Vishwananda

The world does not come to an end when one
 “Falls out of love” in the human love
As it is expressed presently.
It does feel like all pleasure has gone away
Into the wild blue yonder, somewhere, somewhen.

Then one day the world seems to awaken
With a sunrise bursting upon our life
So unexpectedly that the gloom we felt
Yesterday and last night has disappeared
As mysteriously as it sprung into being,
All on its own it seems,
Suddenly, without our wish or approval.

For a moment. in time. it feels like that
When one discovers Gurudev has
Left the premises of Shree Peetha Nilaya
To do his holy work somewhere else.

Then, after a moment one is happy for
The people who will see Him,
Enjoy His Love, Grace and blessings
In a new place, in time.
And it is then, once again,
All is right with God,
And all is right with this world.

Still, the heart holds onto and remembers that
The Master's Form and His Love and Grace
Will soon, once again, come home
To His Earthly home, Shree Peetha Nilaya.
And His beautiful enigmatic smile soon
Will light up this world and
Our unified Love of beating hearts with
A common OM, OM, OM !
