Sai Darshan II, The Sai Avathar

Sai Darshan II, The Sai Avatar

His protection... His Grace... and His Love...

Even hearing
The name of "Sai"...
Shall free you
From a million obstacles...

If you have
Taken this pure name
On your lips and tongue
Then many a births
You take
Shall be protected...

If He has willed
To call you
And cast upon you
His glance
Then the word of truth
Has entered your mind
And shall transform
Your heart
Into love...
From now... forever...

If you have tasted
His physical presence
Then you are
The fortunate one
To whom
The Heavens will come
At your door step
Even before you take
A step
Toward its gates...

If you have
O fortunate one,
Received the smile
Of Sai
Then remember
O Blessed souls,
That the boons of God
And at the precise moment
In which He wills
They will shower
Upon you
The rain of
Eternal Grace...

If He has
Held your hand
In His
Then He shall
Carry your burdens
And transfer to you
The streams of
Divine Power...
As intense devotion
For Him...
With which
All dark clouds shall pass
In silence and
In strength...

If you have
Touched His blessed feet
Then He has
Given to you
His Self
As your home and
His Love
As your eternal friend...

Once, O child of Sai
He has called you "His"
You shall be
Upon His lap
Wherever you are...
Nothing can ever come
Between you and Sai...
For even though
He shall choose to come
He shall choose to go
Every time
You call
From within your heart
You shall
In an instant
With a peace
In which
Sai shall stand
Before you...
Above you
Below you
Around you and
Within you...
And you, O child,
Shall find
Your soul
The Supreme Light of...
Sai Darshan...

Winter days warm house
Others shiver in doorways
Do we offer help?

Wolf in Disguise

Is this a good person
or a wolf in disguise?
I have been fooled
sometimes because
I wanted what
the sly one offered

Now I listen to
the prickle of my skin
the uneasiness I feel
the voice that whispers

Dear Lord, please help
me discern when
evil comes to capture me
protect me by teaching me
to listen to that sense
that danger is near

Saint John of the Cross Quote

Saint John of the Cross, artist unknown - PD-1923

O you souls who wish to go on with so much safety and consolation, if you knew how pleasing to God is suffering, and how much it helps in acquiring other good things, you would never seek consolation in anything; but you would rather look upon it as a great happiness to bear the Cross of the Lord.

VEDA 357

You introduce yourself as 'I'. That 'I' is the foremost name of the Divine; all the other mystical words originated later. In the Vedic proclamation 'AHAM BRAHMASMI' (I am Brahman), the letter 'I' stands for Brahman. So, the first name of Brahman is 'I'. The second name is 'ATMA'. The third name is 'SELF'. 'BRAHMA' is the fourth. 'GOD' is the fifth. These five are the different names of one Divinity. You should understand the true meaning of these words.

(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God,  sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

Free Will?

Free will
great illusion
does God have a plan
do I willing follow His guidance
I’m trading free will
for serenity
