“ENLIGHTENED?!” a poem. Tuesday, 12 June 2018.
I got THIS, from a Devotee,* (pause) initiated by:
Our-Beloved-Yogananda, “The Apple of My Eye!”
We dreamed of Him (Yes, We did!), driving as Chauffeur,
And we-held-hands in-“the-back-seat,” as-He-took-Us-on-a-tour!
In later years, Our Master grew, in wisdom and delight,
And, as He grew, The Dark He knew, although-He-knew-The-Light!
In later years, The Name of God,
He said, meant-simply-singing,
AND – Twirling, like a dervish – some SPINNING was HE bringing!
He sometimes spent (pause) Time-in-The-Dark, admiring Krishna’s “Shadow,”
Admitting LIGHT IS WONDERFUL, but NO-LIGHT can-be “RAD” – o!
TO BALANCE LIFE OR DEATH OR BREATH, BOTH LIGHT & DARK YOU NEED – AND – IF YOU FIND “THE MYSTERY,” then
OTHERS – DON’T IMPEDE!
By trying to outline THEIR Path, since paths are so much vapor,
Yogananda! Mukunda, too! Have-some ori-kami paper! 🙂
* – Ms. Ruth E. Orr, lived and died (?) in Alpine, Texas, U. S. A. She was personally initiated by Paramahansa Yogananda, Indian Guru, many years ago and is the only devotee “reported” – who did not “prostrate” herself before The Master during The Initiation Ceremony; she politely curtsied, which was a traditional action of women in Ruth’s family tradition, when paying deference to someone. Yogananda was pleased and accepted her as member of Self-Realization Fellowship, a spiritual organization He started in California, after He arrived in the United States in the 1920′s.
