The Eternal Quest


Let my soul smile through my heart and
my heart smile through my eyes,
that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.

Arise from dreams of limiting mortal boundaries
to the realization of the vastness of the immortal soul

Pray that unceasing truth flow into your mind...
and unceasing joy flow into your soul.

Know that this universe is nothing but a dream bluff of nature
to test your consciousness of immortality.

A flower is the smile of God.
The fragrance is His hidden presence.

Love outlasts death and the ravages of time.

In every aspect of matter is evidence of the originality ...
of that Cosmic Intelligence.

Every day and minute and hour is a window
through which you may see eternity.

Because we don’t concentrate within,
we are mystified by the imprints of the
invisible Spirit in nature.

Realize spiritually, that One Life pervades everything.

Be transparent like the gems ...
Thinking and perception should have gemlike clarity
that will undistortedly reflect the Divine Mind.

Paramahansa Yogananda

..."be transparent like the gems..."

That is not an easy thing to do, but it is a holy and very spiritual thing to do. I suppose that is what we all are to strive for... complete openenss and transparency.

You pick the best poems -- Thank you again.

Known Stranger said...

after a monks tale - recently i am reading a book by phra peter pannapadipo the book title

phra farang - an english monk in thailand.

a quest of a common man who is like me and you and every one how goes in search of a spritual quest.

he is different like i would say - valmkik - who turned to be a divine sage quiting his profession of robbery something like that.

beautiful book. i recommened you.

Kuan Gung said...

Thank you known stranger...

Kuan Gung said...

I'd also recommend the classic "Sidhartha"...

Kuan Gung said...

I loved visiting one of his schools in California and sitting in an area that I know more then once he himself meditated...
