Love is in the Air - Assessing Creation



Day 1 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Assessing Creation

Lord Vishnu watched King Dasharath
Ayodhya he did rule
He also watched his beloved Earth
Wrecked by Ravana the fool

Earth Goddess cried out in despair
Oh Lord I'm being torn apart
The blood of mankind fills the air
Destroyed is my soul and heart


If you haven't already worked out the epic event that my theme this year is based on, it is one of the greatest historical epics of India, The Ramayana which is the story of Lord Rama. It chronicles events during the life of Lord Rama in an ancient time in a land called Bharatvarsh a part of which is now modern day India.

And you may remember reading in my theme reveal post that this year's theme was given to me through meditation. But more than just a theme I was also asked to write this from the perspective of Divine love and not just a recounting of the events as they took place. Hence the essence of my posts is "Love is in the air".

I also add that the individual theme and tone of my verses are also given to me. And I try to convey what Spirit wants to say through my poetry and prose. In essence, I only transcribe what is given to me, the author of these posts is my soul, the Universe, God and Goddess.

My opening lines are based on a Divine assessment of His creation, setting the scene for His Divine plan, setting up opportunities for karmic destinies, setting the scene to portray Divine love. Note that Lord Vishnu assesses Ravana as foolish rather than a horrible or terrible being. Divinity showing love for all creation.

How did Lord Vishnu respond to the Earth Goddess' cry for help?  In tomorrow's post.

Love is in the air. May you feel that Divine love.

    1. Thanks Shilpa. Mother Earth tolerates a lot of beating from us Earthlings but I guess there comes a time when even her patience wears thin.

  14. Mother earth! and hence they say to be as tolerant as mother earth! and hence there is a prayer which we ought to do before we place our legs on the floor in the morning as we wake up "Samudravasane devi parvatstanmandale Vishnupatni namostubhyam padsparsham kshamaswa me.."
