Death—part 1




Death—part 1


This is the first part of the series on death; together the series covers the following topics:


There is nothing like death / only fools desire to be immortal / there are various spiritual planes / ashes to ashes, dust to dust---it is not as simple as that /The state of mind at the time of death is very important / extreme quiet and self-control should be observed in the chamber of death / why cremation is preferable to burial, as a way of disposing of corpses / about tombs / and in spite of the warning by adepts, tombs were opened, releasing forces upon the world which have endangered it /controversy regarding prophet Muhammad’s tomb / Zoroastrian burial rituals and importance of the dog in the funeral rites and the psychic power of animals   




Death


There is only life; death does not exist

What we call as death is the phase when life changes from one plane to another

Death is nothing but a birth for a new life

Believe in life not death, for life is unbreakable, we either live on Earth or any other higher realm

We are embodied on this physical plane after that we become disembodied, that is without a physical body



On immortality


Only fools desire to be immortal

The ultimate goal of all souls is to merge with that infinite

There is a limitation of spiritual progress on Earth

In the Nasadiya Sukta which is the Hymn of Creation of the Rigveda; it is clearly stated the even the Gods do not have the knowledge of the one eternal God, the absolute creator for they came into existence after the creation

So to make spiritual progress that is to go closer and closer to the creator one must move upwards to higher and higher realms

Great masters have explained about some of the higher realms but have clearly stated that it is impossible even to comprehend (grasp mentally; understand) the topmost realms while we are on Earth
The two highest planes existed even before our solar system was created

In the case of death on Earth we go to a higher state of consciousness and ultimately back to eternity

So one must not be attached to this world and strive to progress further on; and hence accept and welcome death when it arrives

The soul when on Earth is trapped in the physical body and the five coverings called the pancha kosha---the five layers, or sheaths, around the human soul. The term comes from the Sanskrit pancha, meaning “five,” and kosha meaning “sheath” and also the soul is also under the strong influence of maya

A few can free themselves and experience bliss and higher consciousness when they are on Earth by overcoming their passions; after death the soul has a greater chance to elevate


 One teacher has so nicely explained this I quote 

“The once free immortal Intelligence thus entangled, enswathed, enchained, works heavily and laboriously through the coatings that enwrap it. In its own nature it remains ever the free Bird of Heaven, but its wings are bound to its side by the matter into which it is plunged. When man recognises his own inherent nature, he learns to open his prison doors occasionally and escapes from his encircling gaol; first he learns to identify himself with the Immortal Triad, and rises above the body and its passions into a pure mental and moral life; then he learns that the conquered body cannot hold him prisoner, and he unlocks its door and steps out into the sunshine of his true life. So when Death unlocks the door for him, he knows the country into which he emerges, having trodden its ways at his own will. And at last he grows to recognise that fact of supreme importance, that "Life" has nothing to do with body and with this material plane;




Ashes to ashes, dust to dust---it is not as simple as that


Materials to make the human body are drawn from the mineral, vegetable, animal, and human kingdoms

There is no such thing as “dead” matter; all matter is living, the tiniest particles are lives, there is spirit associated with matter

Further there are seven planes (These are the seven great regions of the universe); we are on the physical plane, the next plane is the astral plane

Also on a plane there are various subdivisions, that means matter on the physical plane is subdivided into seven sub divisions

Materials are drawn from the various planes to compose the five coverings called the pancha kosha

Also materials are drawn from the various subdivisions, of the physical plain to compose the physical body

The higher the plane or sub division finer is the texture lower the plane or sub division the texture is coarse

Hence a  man’s body is fine or coarse in its texture according to the materials its draws as per the law of balance; hence the body of a criminal or a butcher will be more coarse than the body of a  refined person, a small child has materials drawn from higher subdivisions and is soft and fine

A pure body repels coarse particles because they vibrate at rates discordant with its own; a coarse body attracts them because their vibrations accord with its own. Hence if the body changes its rates of vibration, it gradually drives out of it the constituents that cannot fall into the new rhythm, and fills up their places by drawing in from external nature fresh constituents that are harmonious. Nature provides materials vibrating in all possible ways, and each body exercises its own selective action; as per the law of balance operating in the Universe and this vibration is as per our quality of DNA

There are the spiritual part of the DNA which are manufactured in some part of the Universe and are sent to Earth


Please click to read the article, in which I have written that NASA has proved that our DNA has come from outer space



And after death, the body is disintegrated and the components which make up the body are returned back to the five elements, to rebuild bodies of all kinds in the mineral, vegetable, animal, and human kingdoms; but as per the law of balance, that means the components from the body of a spiritually elevated person get transformed into a precious ore, plant of high aura or they get attracted towards building the body of a person of a high spiritual level

So we must strive to become a person whom the earth eagerly welcomes receiving his body components after deaths; then we have lived our life well—and have indeed walked the pilgrimage called life

Science has still not proved the existence of subdivisions of matter but masters who due to their through and their mystic insight carried out clairvoyant observations of elements have described the seven subdivisions of matter; they had in earlier times also described the structure of the atom and what they described was later proved by atomic physics after the invention of powerful microscopes




The state of mind at the time of death is very important; teachers have explained this, I quote “A suicide will repeat automatically the feelings of despair and fear which preceded his self-murder, and go through the act and the death-struggle time after time with ghastly persistence. A woman who perished in the flames in a wild condition of terror and with frantic efforts to escape, created such a whirls of passions that, five days afterwards, she was still struggling desperately, fancying herself still in the fire and wildly repulsing all efforts to soothe her: while another woman who, with her baby on her breast, went down beneath the whirl of waters in a raging storm, with her heart calm and full of love, slept peacefully on the other side of death, dreaming of husband and children in happy lifelike visions.” this is what we call Rest In Peace




At the time of death a person experiences a Life review that is the whole life passes swiftly in review before the person as he sees every detail of the life just lived, hence extreme quiet and self-control should be observed in the chamber of death.




According to the deeds of the person, he may even transmigrate to be an animal in the next birth




Some hours after death – generally not more than thirty-six, it is said – the man draws himself out of the etheric (astral) body, leaving it in turn as a senseless corpse, and the latter, remaining near its dense counterpart, shares its fate. If the dense body be buried, the etheric double floats over the grave, slowly disintegrating, and the unpleasant feelings many experience in a churchyard are largely due to the presence of these decaying etheric corpses. If the body is burned, the etheric double breaks up quickly, having lost its nidus (a place in which something is formed or deposited; a site of origin), its physical centre of attraction, and this is one among many reasons why cremation is preferable to burial, as a way of disposing of corpses.
Many famous people who had studied the Vedas opted for cremation

During cremation it is important that the skull burst, explodes, otherwise the ritual of piercing / breaking the burning skull with a stave (bamboo) has to be carried called the kapal kriya

The planes that I mentioned earlier are concentric interpenetrating spheres, not separated from each other by distance but by difference of constitution.

The astral world is above us, below us, on every side of us, through us; we live and move in it, but it is intangible, invisible, inaudible, imperceptible, because the prison of the physical body shuts us away from it, the physical particles being too gross to be set in vibration by astral matter because as mentioned earlier as the level of plane rises the materials become more fine in texture and hence the spirit-matter of the astral plane is more highly vitalised and finer than any grade of spirit-matter in the physical world

This is what is explained in the books written long ago, but I having experienced voices from that other dimension (plane) am a witness to what is written above




Instead of this






If only, death was portrayed like this, people would understand death better






And finally a man should live so as to be ever ready for death and I suggest you die daily and experience a rebirth by improving yourself continuously

A Pilgrimage called Life---part 5



More content added on 12th June 2017



On male female relationships



People give practical advice regarding sex---safe methods, avoiding unwanted pregnancy, prevention against diseases etc.

It is good to give practical advice; I once met an ascetic living in a cave in the Himalaya, I asked him about enlightenment, he told me that the first sign of getting enlightened is practical thinking and sound reasoning, so it is good to be practical and give practical advice to others



But I ask this fundamental question that every parent should discuss with their children and every adult who guides youth must ask this question to them---having evolved from lower life forms to the stage of a human being, where we have developed a huge forehead (lower life forms do not have a forehead) and intellect (buddhi) which allows us to discriminate between right and wrong---is sex so very important that we cannot think of anything else, it literary rules our life




Lust rises in youth, rages along its course, and then subsides; (however this is not always the case now a days many aged people are all sexed up, full of passion, the Mahabharat which convey all divine teachings in a story form for todays degraded generation, clearly explains this in the first chapter itself, where at an old age King shantanu fell in love with satyavati and wanted to marry her). But between start and finish much of a lifetime is usually passed away, and it is a sad fact that many people would have achieved so much in their lifetime had they not wasted their precious life in pursuing sexual pleasures / companionship




Desires were placed in a human for a purpose; nature wants humans to procreate

It is very natural to get attracted to the opposite sex; and further why man and woman are attracted towards certain body parts and find them sexy has a scientific reason

Men prefer women with big, round breast and healthy thighs because a woman with healthy thighs can support and take the weight of a healthy baby during pregnancy and big round breast can store more milk for the baby; on the other hand women get attracted to a big genital because a big organ can deposit sperms more deep inside the womb—nature provided this natural tendencies which later took the form of attraction, so there is nothing vulgar in it; it is the theory of sexual selection and this is also the reason why woman are so very choosy in selecting their partners because unlike the male who can produce millions of sperms a woman only produces one egg a month, and it is her God given responsibility to ensure that she produces better and better offspring’s, so she cannot be irresponsible in choosing her partner



 
However, I quote Paul Brunton “When the mating urge descends on men or women, they develop a temporary but immense capacity for glorifying the beloved person, seeing beauties and virtues which may be quite slight or even non-existent. With the eyes so widely out of focus, nature achieves her purpose with ease”





Food and sex ages a person



Observe how the body of a person gets transformed after an active sex life, a slim body of a youth turns to that of a man, a girl changes into a woman


Two things age you faster----sex and food


The British started doing a survey / census in India from the city of Banaras; they found out that the Hindu widows have a big lifespan

The Hindu widows are left in Banaras to die, then how come they have the biggest lifespan compared to all others? 
The conclusion was that, the Hindu widow is always fasting and given a small quantity of simple food and she does not have an active sex life, the same results were found India wide


So always remember that food and sex ages you and they both are also responsible for lost health and unpleasant diseases


The less you eat and the less you have sex, the healthier you become and I add this also take long walks you will always be healthy

We come across so many old couples, it is even difficult for them to walk, one of the reasons is that they have drained away their vital fluids / energy in enjoyment and are paying the price now




Be very very careful in choosing your partner



Sexual union not only is something operative on the physical plane, but also on the psychic (astral) plane. This psychical union may be harmful to the higher-bred person of the two who are engaged in the intercourse, that means during the process one partner who has a lower spiritual level stands to gain and the other with a higher spiritual level loses


Please click on the link to read this article




Sexual promiscuity is dangerous for many reasons; because

(1) The aspirant's karma becomes entangled with the other person's karma.
(2) One becomes psychically infected with low thought-forms hovering in the other person's aura.
(3) We must consider the effects of our actions upon the lives and the character of others. We just cannot dump our lust on someone else. We are to help their evolution, not their retrogression (the process of returning to an earlier state, typically a worse one)
(4) Intercourse with many unevolved types gives a special shock to the nervous systems of those who practise meditation and disintegrates something of their achievements each time.




On prostitution



See how the face, body of a prostitute becomes, how badly her aura is damaged

See the effects of lust, her body turns black

One look at the lady and you can make out that she has collected so many sexual impurities

The person visiting a prostitute also gets a bad destiny

Corinthians 6:12-20 “do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh”

Corinthians 6:15-17, “Don't you realize that your bodies are actually parts and members of Christ? So should I take part of Christ and join Him to a prostitute? Never! And don't you know that if a man joins himself to a prostitute she becomes a part of him and he becomes a part of her? For God tells us in the Scripture that in His sight the two become one person."



The so called tantra love practices are nothing but inferior tantrik sects who have eagerly used the teaching to make their sexual desires appear as holy aspirations and they are held in ill repute by many Indian authorities. They are nothing but a prostitution racket; just relieving the sexual stress, like the medical doctors who invented vibrators almost two centuries ago, when they were interested in a labour-saving device to spare their hands the fatigue they developed giving hand jobs (masturbating) to a steady stream of 19th century ladies who suffered from “hysteria,” a vaguely defined ailment easily recognizable today as sexual frustration.



I quote Dr Annie Besant “We may hope that, as sexual morality becomes more generally recognised, it will be seen that the essence of prostitution lies in the union of the sexes without mutual love; when a woman marries for rank, for title, for wealth, she sells herself as veritably as her poorer and more unfortunate sister; love alone makes the true marriage, love which is loyal to the beloved, and is swayed by no baser motive than passionate devotion to its object, when no such love exists the union which is marriage by law is nothing higher than legalised prostitution: the enforcement on an unwilling man or woman of conjugal rights is something even still lower, it is legalised rape.”




On youth, sex and marriage



I you marry keeping sex in mind you become porn actors only


Present youth understand nothing of sex discipline, they are not taught what virtues are, they have such a casual approach towards sex not realizing that they are corrupting their DNA, they will only bring unworthy souls in this world


It is clearly mentioned in the Bhagwad Gita that when a woman copulates outside marriage she becomes corrupt, the DNA gets corrupted and this results in unworthy, inferior children and the degradation of the entire lineage


But do todays parents realize this? when a child is born the parents subscribe a full financial package to take care of all the financial needs till the child becomes an adult, they give the child the best education, they buy expensive gadgets, but do they implant moral teachings in the child, do they talk to the child about religion, about the purpose of life—I have started writing this series for this reason


It is said that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, but if you look at the facebook profiles of most girls you see only selfies (a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media), what sort of children such a lady will raise

I happened to see this program “Koffee with Karan” on TV (I have disconnected the idiot box {a television set} long ago) the host was chatting with a film star and his wife, he asked the wife about her past boyfriends, the husband quickly said “No less than mine (girlfriends).” And further added “I'm still discovering boyfriends of yours” and all three laughed HA HA HA…………what a generation. Where sexual purity has no meaning


The older generation did it too, but in a discreet manner; the new generation does it openly


Today’s manner less youth are a direct result of the sexual degradation of their parents


The children who would be born to parents whose mating’s are few, whose minds are pure, and whose hearts are aspiring, would be markedly superior in every way.


Sex is for higher purpose


A substance so valuable that it can create another human being must be used in accordance with its value, not squandered in unthinking indulgence.
Sex is noble if you elevate it otherwise one is still in the animal stage of evolution


Those physical and passional conditions which pass for love among the young--with their uncontrollable sensuality, their total unconcern with higher values, their puppet-like copulation--all show that they have still to outgrow the close ties which they still have to the animal stage of evolution.



Sex has become a pass time, nothing to do so have sex, the older generation which should have long retired to spent a life of prayer and meditation and spiritual elevation are so very active in sex  



The system of dowry is such a big curse in India, women have suffered so much, but when the same woman becomes a mother in law she would want a huge dowry from her son’s wife

The virtues in a girl are not considered only the amount of wealth she brings is taken into account as a result characterless girls are given away in marriage, they bring the degraded DNA and bear unworthy children the destiny of the entire family is affected—indeed millions of families have paid a huge price in India when they chose money over virtue




Also, the mothers mostly in northern parts of India have failed to impart a culture into their sons that women should be respected, and taken care of, it is written in the Vedas that where women are worshiped there the God’s dwell.

The common thought is; it is ok, he is a boy, so he has the licence to be irresponsible in his sexual behaviour

How many parents teach their children that in our Vedic culture, we worship small girls who have not reached puberty, we treat them like Goddesses and the boy should have the same attitude towards other girls  





Kahlil Gibran has written this on Children


Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday….




So it is clear that one must not interfere in the life of youth but let them go on their own; after all they are a result of the collective consciousness of the world and beyond; but I give this advice to the youth that: -



I am not saying that the path to light and enlightenment is for the impotent

do not shun sex like some schools of thought tell you


The body is not polluted by the presence of sexual organs as some ascetic seems to believe. Nature is wiser than they are. She evolved them in all her wisdom. 


But I keep repeating in my blog that what you need to understand is that love is more profound than lust

And I clearly say this that a person who has a healthy platonic relationship does not long for lust

A pure relationship is much more fulfilling and it elevates you


Do not aim that a girl opens her legs for you; strive to become a man to whom the girl would want to open her heart—then you have lived your life well—and you have indeed walked the pilgrimage called life


As base metals are transmuted to Gold; that is the Alchemy of metals

As dirt is transformed into a fruit; that is the Alchemy of a tree

Be an alchemist and transform lust into love



Like Krishna dancing in abundant joy with the gopies is platonic relations at their best





Enjoy this video








keep fighting the battle against lust never give up, you may fail a thousand times—this is your kurukshetra, the battle field of the Mahabharata where the Lord preached Gita; if you restrain your physical self but keep thinking about it in your mind, it is as bad as having a physical relationship; instead try and elevate your spiritual level, your consciousness, then automatically you will no longer long for lust

It is said that only when God appears he will relieve you of lust ; God resides in you the day you can tune in with yourself you evoke him, so try and find your higher self and you would be liberated 

You can use music to your advantage; listen to your favourite music to deviate your mind--- Pythagoras, the great teacher who was initiated in India is said to have possessed such knowledge of music that he could use it for the controlling of men's wildest passions, and the illuminating of their minds.



Youth who get together may discuss something constructive or spent their time in building some engineering project, instead of talking about sex; in this way a good vibration is created which will certainly help them in life


Lao Tzu said the man of Tao is free from the consciousness of sex.





The act of sex



During sex another power takes over youyou can never be in control of yourself, it is the surrender of the attitude of being in control of oneself






“If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.” ~ dr. gail dines







Watch this video; it is truly an eye opener







Almost 70% of pages in the women’s glamour magazine are paid content or advertisements

Models are decked up in makeup and are photoshopped meaning a photographic image is digitally altered using Photoshop image-editing software.

These magazines actually destroy the self-esteem of women




Watch one more beautiful video of a nude artiste-- A woman's body. Beyond the erotic to recognize the divine -- who says that every woman’s body is her biography….ever scar has a story, every wrinkle a testament to a life lived…….







Few more points



There is a feeling of sadness after the sexual act; it is termed as Post-coital tristesse (PCT) or post-coital dysphoria (PCD)

Around 150 AD, the prominent Greek physician Galen wrote, "Every animal is sad after coitus except the human female and the rooster."

A feeling of guilt follows after masturbation

But after a nocturnal emission, informally known as a wet dream; there is no feeling of sadness or guilt, since it is a natural process to relieve tension




A wife can do much more to mar or make man’s life




If one’s family has a history of broken marriages etc. and is unable to find a suitable life partner; such a person must understand very clearly that this is due to the sexual impurities / karma that the lineage has collected, and must try to lead a pure life and accept his or her destiny and be very careful about their behaviour so they do not collect any bad karma




Everyone thinks that solitude is their problem; every one suffers from solitude at some stage or other, but people close their doors and are not ready to come out of it




There is a reason that the female reproductive organs are inside the body and male reproductive organs outside the body




It is wrong that-- spiritual fulfilment / enlightenment is only possible if one denies sex, the true statement is spiritual fulfilment / enlightenment is only possible if one comes out of lust




As per the occult studies of the Zoroastrians: the female sex possesses in her eyes a power nine times more effective than that in a male, and which is known as "Vanthvo Frado",  i.e., one of the five magnetic powers (Frad) present in water in its original, natural and pure state. Owing to the high extent of this Vanthvo-Frado power in a woman, she possesses in herself the art, as it were, of placing in the mouth of the opposite party whatever words she likes. Consequently, a child picks up more easily what is imparted by a female teacher than by a male, this is the reason why a female teacher is by nature more suited than a male for imparting primary training
In the past female members of the US army were effectively used to negotiate with rebel groups to surrender




The forty-eight or in some editions sixty-four postures described in the book on sex love called Kama Sutra, now widely translated and published in the West, are simply forty-eight or sixty-four ways for a man to lower himself to purely animal status. In fact several of them are given animal names by the author.~ Paul Brunton


 “Chastity is not the same as purity, although the two are often confused. The one is a way of outward life; the other a state of inner life.” ~ Paul Brunton


"Chastity is a mind that is completely free from all image making, all the pictures, sensations, which thought has built in its search for pleasure through sex. Then you will find an abundance of energy." ~ Krishnamurti



The man who says, "I love you," too often means, "I want your body."





All the problems in this world are related to over population





One must use the blessing of the Internet to gain knowledge; most people only use the social media to socialize or for entertainment
It is pathetic that over the years, the top searched image on google search in India is of a female porn actor turned film star—there is so much knowledge available on the internet, yet most people only pursue what pleases their senses 




The snake crawling on its belly is as close to the earth as any animal could get. As a symbol this creature stands in ancient scriptures for earthly pleasure. And since there is no pleasure so intense as the sexual one, it has come to stand for that particularly. The snake rearing its head and holding itself upright stands for the overcoming of sexual passion. It is not only a symbol of such mastery but particularly of the power arising from its being diverted toward spiritual knowledge and aspiration.




That aspirant has attained purity who no longer desires any human being but only pure Being itself. Thus he passes from the personal to the impersonal, from passion through penitence and self-discipline to utter tranquillity.




The person who desires true love has not understood its meaning----- True love---- is unconditional---not self-seeking---it can only be given---never expected



We talk of merging with the almighty God, but first are we capable of giving true love; how many times we have stood with the powerful and how many times we have sat with the broken?





We perform puja (the act of worship) at our work place during Diwali, my Christian colleague refused to take part in the ceremony and also refused the prasad (a devotional offering made to a god, typically consisting of sweets /food that is later shared among devotees) saying that his God does not allow this—later on he developed an adulterous relationship with a lady---does his God allow this?

Matthew 5:28 “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”





Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit; keep them as pure as possible





An interesting fact



One of the earliest, if not the earliest, home pregnancy tests came from Ancient Egypt. In 1350 BC, women were advised to urinate on wheat and barley seeds over the course of several days; if the wheat sprouted, she was having a girl, and if the barley sprouted, a boy. If neither sprouted, she wasn’t pregnant. The most interesting thing about this test was that it actually worked: In 1963, a laboratory experimented with the wheat and barley test and found that, 70 percent of the time, the urine of pregnant women would cause the seeds to sprout, while the urine of non-pregnant women and men didn’t.
The reason I feel why this test fails 30% today is because of the chemicals present in the food chain and in our bodies




“If you want your wife to be a Goddess, worship her.” ~ Clairette de Longvilliers








Marble sculpture by Bernini named Pluto and Proserpina—compared to this art, today’s modern art is garbage















Kahlil Gibran on Love {from the prophet}


When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
