“Mother is the discoverer of Man’s secret after he has been stripped of his machines, his religions, his spiritualisms and his materialisms, his Western or Eastern ideologies — when he is himself, simply a heart beating and calling for the Earth-of-Truth, simply a body calling for the Truth of the body, like the seagull’s cry for space and high wind.

It is her secret and her discovery that I will try to tell you.

For Mother is a fairy tale in the cells of the body.

A human cell, what is it?

Another concentration camp … biological this time?”

Or a passport to … where? – The Mind of the Cells, Satprem

Tourism supports 1 in 10 jobs, outpacing global economy for 6th consecutive year, WTTC

Travel & Tourism generated 1 in 10 of the world’s jobs in 2016 as the sector grew by 3.3%, outpacing the global economy for the sixth year in a row, reads a new report by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).

WTTC’s Economic Impact Report 2017, which is conducted in conjunction with Oxford Economics, researches the economic impact of Travel & Tourism impact on global level, for 25 regions, and 185 countries.

According to the research, Travel & Tourism grew by 3.3% in 2016, generating US$7.6 trillion worldwide, which is 10.2% of global GDP when the direct, indirect and induced impacts are taken into account. The sector supported a total of 292 million jobs in 2016, which is 1 in 10 of all jobs in the world

Additionally, global visitor exports, which is money spent by foreign visitors, accounted for 6.6% of total world exports, and almost 30% of total world services exports.

David Scowsill, President & CEO, WTTC, said: “This is the sixth year in a row that Travel & Tourism has outpaced the global economy, showing the sector’s resilience, and the eagerness of people to continue to travel and discover new places, despite economic and political challenges across the world.

The continuous growth of our sector underlines the significance of business and leisure travel in driving economic development and job creation throughout the world.”

Southeast Asia (8.3%) was the region with the fastest growing Travel & Tourism sector in 2016, driven by the expanding Chinese outbound market and the countries own growing markets. Latin America (0.2%) was the slowest growing region. Some countries performed well above the world average, but the Brazilian economy dragged down the whole region.

The other regions registered the following growth: South Asia (7.9%), North East Asia (4.6%), Oceania (4.4%), the Caribbean (3.2%), North America (3.1%), the Middle East (2.7%), Sub-Saharan Africa (2.4%) and Europe (1.6%).

Travel & Tourism is expected to grow by 3.8% in 2017, generating US$ 7.9 trillion. This growth is slower than previously forecast, as a result of a downgrade to the global economy and a dampening of consumer spending.

Over the next decade the sector is forecast to grow at an average of 3.9% per year. By 2027 it will generate more than 11% of the world’s GDP and employ a total of 380 million people. One quarter of all jobs created in the next decade will be supported by Travel & Tourism.

Scowsill continued “The future prospects for Travel & Tourism are good, but the sector continues to face challenges. The impact of terrorism and the rise of populism pose a severe risk to the ability of people to travel efficiently and securely. The sector itself needs urgently to address the impact of growth on destinations and its own contribution to climate change if it is to be sustainable in the long term. The UN’s 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development is a perfect opportunity to explore solutions together. We look forward to welcoming delegates at our upcoming Global Summit in Bangkok, Thailand, 26-27 April where these challenges will be addressed.”

About WTTC:

The World Travel & Tourism Council is the global authority on the economic and social contribution of Travel & Tourism. It promotes sustainable growth for the sector, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, to drive exports and to generate prosperity. Every year WTTC, together with Oxford Economics, produces its flagship Economic Impact Report, which looks at the socioeconomic benefits of Travel & Tourism on global, regional and country level. This year the report shows data on 25 regional groupings and 185 countries.

Travel & Tourism is a key driver for investment and economic growth globally. The sector contributes US$7.6 trillion or 10.2% of global GDP, once all direct, indirect and induced impacts are taken into account. The sector also accounts for 292 million jobs or one in ten of all jobs on the planet.

For over 25 years, WTTC has been the voice of this industry globally. Members are the Chairs, Presidents and Chief Executives of the world’s leading, private sector Travel & Tourism businesses, who bring specialist knowledge to guide government policy and decision-making, and raise awareness of the importance of the sector.

WTTC’s annual Global Summit brings together over 900 delegates to discuss the opportunities, challenges and issues facing the industry, while its Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognise the industry’s power to be a positive force in sustainability. This year’s Summit will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, 26 – 27 April 2017.

And a masterwork of the Divine perfection is laid

It is not a trial that the soul undergoes

But a process by which replenishment occurs

Beyond any mortal judgement or choice

Eternity shapes time’s insufficiency

Turning many vortices to accelerate evolution

Within the body, a conscious-energy recalibrates itself

By drawing upon the design-patterns reflected in the mirror series

A leap in awareness is a primordial step

Mind-to-Mind transfer completing the karmic-loop

The universe unfolds itself in alphas and omegas

In a persistent colour of perception the drama is told

An actor free to enact every possibility

He, the redeemer not by choice or by birth

But by soul-deliverance of the eternal sacrifice

That assigns divinity to a god or a stone

Builds the foundation based on the Semiotics of Surrender

A prayer upon a prayer upon a prayer…

Consciously experienced as the ecstasy in all

He who has planted the root of unity in differences

‘A vast surrender was his only strength’.

“He is never seen, but is the witness; He is never heard, but is the Hearer; He is never thought of, but is the Thinker; He is never known, but is the Knower. There is no Other witness but Him, no other hearer but Him, no other thinker but Him, no other knower but Him”. – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

Invocations Devi Khadgamala Stotra, 17th Feb 2017, Auroville

Performed @ Auroville’s SAWCHU platform  in Bharat Nivas

Performers @ Rekha and Laurence, and filmed by Manohar

The Sri Devi Khadga Mala Stotram is a very special composition of praying to the Goddess Shakti, the Divine Mother in a unique and complete way. Unique in the sense that each of the names uttered is for a significant cause, with meaning description and encapsulated with divine energy and utmost devotion.

Khadgamala Stotram is a hymn sung in the praise of Divine Mother, which is said to bestow a protective garland of mystical weapons from the Devi from all sorts of calamities upon those who recite it. The Devi Khadga Mala Stotram takes us mentally through the Sri Chakra, the mystical geometric representation of the Supreme Goddess, describing the significance and meaning for each form given.

Divine Mother at Pondicherry photograph by Henri-Cartier Bresson

It has the latent frequency of the universe

It configures and re-configures itself by an unknown process

Unknown because it cannot pre-empt itself

But it knows how to propel and navigate

Self-contained, it is the BLISS Regulator

The art of Surrender is the Miracle of Miracles

It is the only pre-requisite to be with the Divine

To have the heart’s content in every situation is the indomitable will that makes you free

Pray to the Mother so your embryonic self can connect with the universe

Pray to the Lord in you and the Lord in All

A single word can create the dynamic pathways of the circuit for consummation

That is the Secret of Upanishadic mantras

That is Urandiskhungtat/Tool//Wool/Cool//Pool (*Proximity to the Future can RECREATE THE PAST)

St John’s looks to break into Indian and Chinese B&B market for 2017

As the number of tourists from Asia visiting the historic university city of Cambridge continues to rise, one of its most iconic Colleges is looking to target visitors from both India and China to develop revenues that can help to fund its core work in education and research.

playground

St John’s,  founded in 1511, is one of the largest and best-known Colleges in Cambridge  

Indian and Chinese visitors to Cambridge are being targeted by one of the university city’s most iconic colleges in a bed and breakfast business campaign designed to attract growing numbers of “high value” tourists from Asia.

 

St John’s College was founded in 1511 and is known for producing several of Cambridge University’s Nobel Laureates and numerous other distinguished academics, as well as for its riverside setting and famous “Bridge of Sighs”. Now, the college is hoping that this unique history will prove a draw for its bed and breakfast business for tourists during the summer of 2017.

 

While Cambridge colleges were once strictly private for most of the year and closed off to the general public, the situation has changed dramatically during recent decades. Like many others, St John’s offers a bed and breakfast service while students are away during the long summer vacation, and many rooms are therefore vacant. Rather than staying in a hotel, this gives tourists the chance to enjoy the unique surroundings of a centuries-old college in the heart of one of Britain’s most spectacular cities.

 

Tourism is one of the main ways in which, especially during the summer months, the College generates income which it can invest in its core aims, which are teaching students and supporting world-class research. With numbers of visitors from India and China both on the rise in Cambridge, St John’s is now making a concerted effort to appeal to would-be customers from both of those countries in particular.

 

“The economic growth in both countries means that we are seeing more independent, high-value visitors coming to Cambridge,” Bill Brogan, who is Catering and Conference Manager at St John’s College, said. “Some are business people or visiting academics, but there are also a lot more families who are just interested in seeing a part of the UK outside London. Our thinking is that if you choose a hotel you could be anywhere, while a stay in a Cambridge College is an experience unlike anywhere else.”

 

Cambridge is one of the most popular visitor destinations in the United Kingdom outside of London. According to Visit Britain, the city had approximately 430,000 “staying” visitors in 2015 – an increase on the previous two years.

 

Research by the same organisation also suggests that visits from China and India to the UK overall are on the rise. Between 2014 and 2015 (the latest period for which accurate and complete data is available) it recorded a 45.7% increase in visitors from China, and an 8.47% increase in visitors from India.

 

Brogan estimates that about a fifth of the College’s own Bed and Breakfast custom during 2015 similarly came from those two countries. As a result, the College is now developing existing collaborations in both China and India to promote its bed and breakfast business. Information is being sent to bodies such as the China-Britain Business Council, Air China, the Institute of Hospitality, and several Indian universities, as well as smaller businesses and suppliers with which the College has a relationship, such as Sula Vineyards near Mumbai.

 

Visitors to St John’s are typically drawn by its famous grounds on the River Cam and its architecture, some of which dates back to the Tudor Era, and which also includes the Bridge of Sighs and the superb 19th-century Chapel designed by George Gilbert-Scott. These have provided the backdrop for numerous blockbuster films.

 

Among several other prominent Indians, Dr Manmohan Singh, the country’s former Prime Minister, is a graduate and Honorary Fellow of the College, and was awarded a BA in Economics in 1957. Since 2007, he has given his name to a scholarship programme that enables academically outstanding doctoral students from India to study at St John’s.

 

Noted Chinese alumni include the novelist Louis Cha, who became a Doctor of Philosophy at St John’s at the age of 86 in 2010, and was admitted as an Honorary Fellow of the College in September of that year. A stone, inscribed with a poetic couplet which he composed for the College at the start of his career as a graduate student in 2005, stands in the College’s rose garden. The College is developing strong links with China, not least through exchange programmes and opportunities for Visiting Overseas Scholars to study at the College.

 

The resulting high international profile has made St John’s one of the most popular destinations in Cambridge. During the financial year 2014-15, more than 54,000 tourists visited, generating a £160,000 profit for the College.

 

Bed and breakfast facilities are available at St John’s every summer. For more information, visit: http://www.joh.cam.ac.uk/bed-breakfast.

The Divine Mother in Japan            Tibetan Mandala with Sanskrit Mantras in Concentric Circles by Carl Jung

 

All atoms are made inside the sun by thy Will

There are vibrations that compacted and expanded

These are open dance signatures of the great cosmic mandala

They come from the Void and manifest their form

How sweetly they sing and sadly they disappear

Beyond all these there is stillness

That pervades the motionless track of all existence

Perfection and imperfection exist in a plane of simultaneity

We need to go beyond….

Bright nothing where you void the void

There eternity exists as manifestation starts

Look deep inside

………..Take the Skull in your hand…

The universe exists as a pulse only in your mind

And when you hear the birds singing

The passing clouds bring rain

And you dance like a drop in an ocean of spontaneity {Pure Function}

Because you know that nothing is left to you at this moment

But to have a good laugh;

Narrating children the tales of Tapovan

Where mystic oneness still prevails

When you seek to know it, you cannot see it.

You cannot take hold of it,

But you cannot lose it.

In not being able to get it, you get it.

When you are silent, it speaks;

When you speak, it is silent.

The great gate is wide open to bestow alms.

And no crowd is blocking the way.’

Mahadevi Art from Bikaner Rajasthan circa 1600-1800 courtesy The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Art is an arrangement of realization in time

Time is therefore a phenomena allowing perceptual cognition

Subjective ideation is a functional variable of time having a fixed component- the real and the other imaginary (unfixed)

Imaginary component is a dream analogue to other alternate versions of reality

Reality is a differentiated undifferentiated perpetual bubble composed of many frequencies

The imaginary time (Ti) creates loops spinning back to eternity

There the logocentric mind is defined as the Supreme Para-Brahman

This is the point from which the external reality of the manifestation starts as expansion of space (Akasha)

And at this point the internal reality of the supra-unmanifest opens into higher non-dual realms

Each co-existing fundamentally within each other with degree zero separation

Therefore the art and the artist are not separate but one unique dynamic energy experience in consciousness

This inseparability is experienced as the flux, a movement

Stillness acquires the perfection of a million bodies when it moves without moving

Let there be peace in our thoughts

“Awakened to the meaning of my heart

That to feel love and oneness is to live

And this the magic of our golden change,

Is all the truth I know or seek, O sage.”

The Great Crossing Over of the Boat under the Glowing Orb

                                 The Great Crossing Over of the Boat under the Glowing Orb

‘At dusk the cock announces the dawn;

At midnight, the bright sun’ (From ‘Zenrin Kushu’)

“Amid all the mist of confusion there is still the possibility of a new twilight, not of an evening

but a morning yuga-sandhya.

India of the ages is not dead nor has she spoken her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human people”. (Sri Aurobindo)

The duality of subject & object, of the knower and the known is relative, mutual and inseparable. The object, however, remains as an object for the subject and the subject remains always a subject for the object, though they appear always as phenomenological but the ‘truth’ about them is always noumenological.

Primum Mobile Dante The Divine Comedy Ill Gustave Doré London Cassell p 310

Primum Mobile Dante The Divine Comedy Ill Gustave Doré London Cassell p 310

The STILL POINT is the UNMOVED MOVER OF DANTE {The still point of the turning world: Primum mobile/The Prime Mover or ‘the first moved’}

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”

– Burnt Norton, Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot

You saw hidden in Her face

What others could not envision or think:

Thou spoke the unspoken words

From the limitless depths of an eternal space

‘A fathomless zero occupied the world’.

Still and quiescent

Every moment

The countless eons followed each other

Like a tedious argument that lost its course in the desert’s wild temptation of mirages 

And the birds come and go

The sky and pool empty as it were

Replicate order in the manifested chaos

And bondage and salvation the same thing

And there is in man nothing special

Yet he has

Birth is an allowance

We are dying into another realm                

And darkness covers the face of the deep

And the Void lifted it from the heap

Blissful in this state of twilight darkness 

Slowly, the soul walked in a halo of silence

And milked the ocean of paradise

Transubstantiating darkness into light

For He will have eyes to give light to the suns 

And the heart feeling the pathos of joy

The anointed music of an unbroken toy

Pealing the root of everlastingness

Nestled in sacred polyhedrons 

Time to be here, or, there

Or, nowhere, but alone in a small boat

Strangely the night your only companion

The tooth of the shark

The glory of the Ark

Hibiscus awaiting on the shore

O! Heraclitean fire of profound grand indifference

Awake yourself to the light of this great day

Sailing away

Or, you stop not to blink at the page of redemption

And burn the effigies of the past forever

And smear the ash in the sky

That soon will be the rainbow 

For you to behold

And you don’t know

What you know

Brihadarankya Upanishad Message

Be the wise king who carries the Torch,

Or the fool who lights the candle 

Ending to begin the action of its course

Or, the unending reward of waiting without hope

Always, be sure, calm and resolute

And move without moving

On the still point of the dancing wave!

And do not think of the fruit of action.
Fare forward.
                        O voyagers, O seamen,
You who came to port, and you whose bodies
Will suffer the trial and judgement of the sea,
Or whatever event, this is your real destination.”
So Krishna, as when he admonished Arjuna
On the field of battle.
                                            Not fare well,
But fare forward, voyagers.” (The Dry Salvages, The Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot)

Time cannot juxtapose synergies of an ancient truth; they are prevalent in the musical travelogues of the troubadours. With each passing day, the tree has expressed its own offering to the creation in an almost silent way. The fruit has gathered the flower’s morphogenetic vibrations in a little note from a bird that will nest in the future. Rhythm of an arcane moment eternise the Rialto so it can taste the artistic freedom of a higher existence. You may honour the season’s paeans in the sweet gesture of a firefly that sees every end as a cyclical reverie of the moon- this is the root of remembering the being visited by a sudden light half sunk in the river of ecstasy.

“A Light there is that leads, a Power that aids;

Unmarked, unfelt it sees in him and acts:

Ignorant, he forms the All-Conscient in his depths,

Human, looks up to superhuman peaks:

A borrower of Supernature’s gold,

He paves his road to Immortality”.  (Savitri, Sri Aurobindo)

Silken center touched by the scream in meditative stillness will generate karma from the vacuum grid – feeding the heart with her songs …regain consciousness  in the bliss of business called divine life – from light you are earning the gift of vision to experience…from darkness you are learning the deep solitude of the epiphany of space-time causal-rhyme

Divine Mother in a Playful Mood with Puppies

Divine Mother in a Playful Mood with Puppies

Feed the pigeons

Feed the puppies

Feed the world

Like your lassie

each wounded bird tells its story to the dim forest branches; scattered by the winds the starlight pierces the soft warm skin beneath…its last song is the theatrical eternal fossil that plays out time to capture Bresson’s decisive moment…Are you awake to Andre Gide, Marcel Proust and the oracles of Rimbaud?

 

She feeds the stars from the pigeons; the pigeons from the stars…

Keep faith

As you wait…

Tomorrow the song will be sung

By all…

The day the Self-born unity will come into being by the harmony and integration of knowledge, devotion and work, as impelled by the Will of the Virat Purusha, the Universal Person, on that day the chariot of Jagannath will come out on the avenues of the world, radiating its light in all directions. Satya Yuga, the Age of Truth will descend upon earth; the world of mortal man will become the field for the play of the Divine, the temple-city of God, the metropolis of Ananda. – The Chariot of Jagannath by Sri Aurobindo

Barefooted…

We stood at the confluence of the holy river and the sea

(dariyeachi ek apurbo ananda vairagyer mohonay)

Divine tide

Made us ride

The chariot that came forth

Sarirer Shihoron

Ananda Kirtan

Bheshe jay sab plabone

A flooding light

Strange and bright

Drowned us in

And we rejoiced at the shores of bliss…

HARI OM (3x)

The universe hangs on its ancient plenum

Finally silence has words to speak off

It speaks out of its heart’s compassion

Naked sunbeams travelling moonlight flooding streets       

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu at the Divine Confluence

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu at the Divine Confluence

Flooding horizons

And pastures rained with starlit dreams

Raising their heads against the sky

To meet the Real in themselves

Every nook and corner, the music must go on…

The revelry must conjure the passion of their lives

Embrace the barefooted lovers of this destiny

Meet by the riverside, mountainside and at conclaves or at gardens

The unknown call answered at these places

Hail the Lord –The Lord of the Worlds

Innermost thoughts

Innermost expressions

Can translate the power of the Godhead

Into the surface of a raindrop refracting rainbow

Where do we go?

To know thyself

That thou art hidden

Words are like mirrors reflecting everything

Words are trance objet de art

Words are ocean of multitudes

Whatever be your language

The destiny is One

1>1         as many

1>2         as many subsets of many

Immerse yourself

And dissolve…

Withered petals have offered their wealth

The sap of honey rekindles fire

Satiates senses

Purge poets

For the ‘sadhana’

And Dante’s paradise mirrors the Self

Streets are flooded with moonlight doves

Evening rubs

The feathered pitch of sunlight receding in the dark

Forest wood sandal hooves

Gum resin fibre

Lord Jagannatha Lord Balarama and Devi Shubhadra with Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Folk Art

Echoing every leaf’s crescent arm

Over sleepy houses, quarters and emerald seas

They have incensed and bathed words in their delight

The light

Shines…

Comes ahead

Above the forehead

Observe the unfolding

Of events

From non-existent sat to chit of ‘ananda kirtan’ – this very body of delight

Transcendental unity on the surface of the universe bubble (the Swar from Hiranyaloka)

Dancing in the streets…

Evening drains out

Only the tree of life looks up to the sun

Forming crystals flowers of imaginative display

That exchange information that is discreet

Of the coming time

Do you know why?

Achinta-bheda-abheda-tattva

Active kriya awakens the world

For better possibilities on which we live

Blown by the winds

Pull towards your q-self

Express thy feelings…

Jay Jagannatha

Hari Om Tat Sat!

 

There in between images

Times fills space

at the bottom of this

Hanging emptiness

the tree clings to the soul

flowering beauty’s mystic sense

which we glance through

our mind

The Lord awaits on the shore

as the moon awaits the cycle to end and begin

renew the words with feelings

Sri Aurobindo circa 1915

Sri Aurobindo circa 1915

and you have everything…

“I was doing time in the universal mind.
I was feeling fine.
I was turning keys, I was setting people free.
I was doing all right.
Chorus: Then you came along
With a suitcase and a song,
Turned my head around.
Now I’m so alone
Just looking for a home
In every place I see.
I’m the freedom man (3x)
That’s how lucky I am.   – Universal Mind/Jim Morrison/The Doors

Un Voyage Mystique: Celebrating Divine Mother’s 136th Birth Anniversary, 21st Feb, 2014

Mirra Alfassa, Divine Mother circa 1890s

Mirra Alfassa, Divine Mother circa 1890s

Un voyage mystique

It starts as a mystique journey that our existence as notes on a vibratory string

Orchestrates the great feeling of love

A whole universe with its varied life-forms

Pulsating like a bubble in the eternal field

We partake of this vision as a great spectacle

Parisian colours infused with spring’s eau de cologne

Gave liberty to the artist’s mind

Clutching the never ending light

Serrant la lumiere sans fin

And the poet etched on the rock’s silent footprints of time

Twilight tongue that tastes the sweet reverie of the stars

Divine Mother

Divine Mother

Burning like a candelabra in the midnight womb of the opal sky

Tears rolling sands like a smile upon waves

To a flower in a boutique

By a glass window

Seagulls fly…

And are forever motionless

Flickered in the eye of the great preceptor

The melodious light that awoke the god’s from their diurnal sleep

Time’s passage nests the opera of the self

In the great wilderness lies our cosmic destiny

As real yet unreal as it seems

The never ending Parisian dream!

Le reve parisien sans fin

Active Redopalin Time for Supramental Descent: An Invocation to The Supreme Lord via Server Non-Locality of the Holographic Universe

We are perceivers.  We are an awareness;  we are not objects;  we have no solidity.  We are boundless.  The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. – Michael Talbot (Author of the Holographic Universe)

The Endless quest a vigil of watchtowers and fortresses

against the sea and time.

Have they won? Perhaps.

They still stand and in 

their silent rooms wander the souls of the dead. 

who keep their watch on the living.

Soon enough we shall join them 

Soon enough we shall walk the walls of time.

We shall miss nothing

except each other.  – Jim Morrison

Eternal Flame/Ma Jwalamukhi/Annapurna Ma/Kangra Valley, HP

From empty space sounds direct the eternal words

They come into being, disappear into nothing

Self-constructed from that seminal fluid of the void

Stars are formed with big gaseous bodies that hurl against each other

Screaming in the darkness, crying in the lonesome highway

They hear unto me

Soft languid motionless and still

Perpetuates the golden order of things

Accelerating on the fringes

Runaway to distant galaxies

One with the other entwined

They formulate the rhythm of expansion and contraction

Do you feel rainbow spark on the bosom of my wings

Or on the misty petals of the twilight garden

Do you feel the thunder over the distant mountains?

Do you see beneath the ocean’s floor the schism?

Are you living or dead?

Can you walk on my shore breathe on my waves?

Are you afraid of trying? Lying? Vying?

Are you the poet, artist or the Lord?

Lord Krishna/Adi Purusha

Lord Krishna/Adi Purusha

Who are you in the epic battles of Mahabharata?

Are you the vibration of things that kindle fire in the promontory?

Are you the winds that whisper clouds the song of the eternal man?

Are you the day dreamer of the quantum rasa-lila?

The supramental intelligence of the creational matrix?

Are you the clown in the cave of infancy fluting the minstrelsy of bygone years?

Are you the question of primordial birth & its quest?

In the higgs field they are searching the quaro-hizboic time of complete resurrection?

What time is not what space is what god substance from that singularity?

Krishna janame Krishna – Krishna janame Radha-Krishna

The garden is now without its spring vitality

The waters flow on an inundated hollow Mesozoic curvature

Spinning and twisting legs that cannot know its source

Where are you when they ravaged the forests with their poison oak?

This is the time,

This is the time

To reconsider the future

Seconds are dying into nano-seconds without the remembrance of your grace?

This is now a cultivated wasteland

A mortal blemish of the unconditioned love

Future in all di sitter space fashions the geometric octave of spiral galaxies

You are the event horizon – the cosmic point of the knower and the known

What is known is still unknown to the world?

Come lying involuted in the conch shell as the prolific sound

Come today as the retrocausal sign-ship of destiny

Come to orchestrate the great beginning of things

Earth-to-earth from p-creation to m-creation-mirra

Words won’t last that very long, the great surge beyond

Within your yogic state all things shall flow and merge

Into that finality of light, everlasting light

From darkness shore I saw the triple-headed sun of Krishna

Descending fast on anti-gravity shield

Cows milk the ocean of the worlds into the seven sages of the swar

Flames of the tongue burn brightly as the sun…
