A Lonely Man Awakens To Love

A Lonely Man Awakens to Love

A man walked along the cobbled street,
Head bowed into the strong wind
That furiously shook the bushes
Along his lonely way
As lightening streaked across
The dark, ominous sky

A bird, not yet settled, rang out a mournful
Song or so it seemed to the worried man.
No home had he, but only a crate underneath
A nearby bridge, and a few belongings to
Sustain his life.

Suddenly a light appeared moving toward him.
No person was in sight through the storm
Now fast approaching.
A God, or angel stood within the light.
The God asked kindly, “Do you know God?”
Long ago, I did, the man answered truthfully,
But now life has been so hard and I have
Forgotten Him in my lonely and drifting life.

The God looked deeply, lovingly and compassionately
Within the eyes of the man
And lo, the man’s heart was opened and once again
He felt love for God stirring in the depths of his heart.
Suddenly, he knew that he must go back to his family
And begin life anew.
Love, hope and gratefulness filled his being.

As Christ said:
"Let me into your lives, your world.
Live on me
So that you may become truly alive." 

Sri Swami Vishwananda Premavatar says,
"Just Love and love God, for when you have God,
You have everything."
