A LAMP IN A WINDLESS PLACE

The Mind & Heart of God

Poems

by Raymond Reichman-Israelsohn

A lamp that does not flicker in a windless place,

To such is compared a yogi of subdued thought

Practising Union with the Self

Bhagavad Gita (Maharishi Translation)

The Yoga of Maditation (Dhyana Yoga)

Chapter VI,Verse 19


From Chapter One | The Mind of God

They did not know

Nor I

That in my act of asking

Lay the seed of His granting

And in my meditation I rose

Up through the clouds I rose

Into a light

And gently uttered “Master”

Then I returned to Earth

And cried some more

Real tears

…And now I cry in memory

…And also now in gratitude

I think I see the Mind of God

I think I see a glimpse

I think I see the Mind of God

I think I see a glimpse

I asked, I prayed, I cried:

“Show me your Mind, Dear God!

A boon, a boon, one boon

Only one, Dear God, no more”

I cried in pain… real tears.

No one saw, all saw

They did not know my quest

They saw only the wounded lion

Some pitied, some ate of my flesh

All were embarrassed

But they did not understand

They did not know my prayer
