40 Days of Poetry: Day 37

 

The Beloved 

(Prem-ka)

 

When I joined myself to Truth,

I got drenched with the color that never fades!

 

The rhythm of my breath

Became the very sound of God’s Name.

And sitting perfectly in Cherdi Kalah,

The True Guru took me by the hand.

 

My burning desires:

My attachment, greed and pride all vanished.

My lust and passion, my flaming anger,

Were all destroyed

When the True Guru held my hand.

 

I perfected the Yoga of Sat Nam.

Divine Radiance filled my Destiny.

My Master showed me the invisible Path

And, merged in Light, my Lotus bloomed.

Light flowed everywhere …

Effortlessly!

 

I became the Beloved when I learned how to love.

Oh People!

I became majestic and God came to live within me.

 

Beloved,

I became the Beloved.

It just happened.

God did it.

 

When I joined myself to Truth,

I became filled with Light.

Inside .. .

Outside .. .

Light and more Light!

Drenched in Light . . .

The True Guru held my hand.
