I Would Not Even Care To Be An Emperor
Mother of the Universe,
I have no desire to exercise power.
I would not even care to be an emperor.
Sweet Mother, please grant me
two simple meals each day
and wealth enough to thatch the palm roof
of my clean earthen house,
where I offer dreaming and waking
as red flowers at your feet.
My green village dwelling is the abode
of your golden radiance, O Goddess.
What need have I of more elaborate construction?
If you surround me with the complex architecture
of stature and possession,
I will refuse to call you Mother ever again.
Oh Kali, give me just enough to serve lovingly
whatever guests may visit me.
Plain metal plates and cups will do.
Daily existence in the heart of my extended family
is the worship beyond worship
that perceives Mother Reality
as every being, every situation, every breath.
I will never leave this natural way of life
to become a stern ascetic
or a teacher honored by the world.
There is only one longing this poet’s soul
declares over and over:
“Mother! Mother! Mother!
May every moment of my existence
merge completely with your essence.”
Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”
“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”
May God bless and protect you and…
May you always be
Safe and Comfortable

Hi Ruth. Thanks for visiting.
The natural way of living as it was intended to be described in Beauty. Thank you.
Thank you for visiting.
It was my pleasure 🙂
Thank you so much for the blessing!
Very beautiful words of contentment, sharing and love.
That prayer of Ramprasad is wonderful. But if everyone were that down to the basics, how would the world move on? How would the yet-to-be explored wonders of Divine Spirit be revealed? How would civilisation advance?
The creative possibilities of Soul in the human body should not be limited in any way. And the test is not in not acquiring too much. No. It is rather being detached in the midst of too much. That is where the real test of spirituality is. But this is just a personal view gleaned from my own path, Eckankar, the Path of Spiritual Freedom. Disregard my comment if it doesn’t make sense to you. And thanks for reading this.
Thank you for the comment. It makes perfect sense to me. I slightly familiar with Eckankar, but will, look into it further. Take care.
Thanks Kelly. Really appreciate. I have a blog too at: amazingdivineencounters.com. U may also wish to look in. And let me know what u feel afterwards. Thanks again. We are all on the road to deeper knowledge, and can always share.
This is beautifully written post.
Thank you Kally.
