Love is in the Air - Invincible


Day 9 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Invincible

The bow it was invincible
Steadfast it did not move
King Janak sad and irascible
Lord Rama calm and aloof

He knew He could win Sita's hand
But the timing must be right
And Guru must first command
Before He ended Sita's plight


King Janak was perturbed and wondered if there was anyone who would win Sita's hand. At that moment doubts were creeping into his head and he wasn't thinking clearly. His irascibility led him to rile the congregation with scornful words and wrath.

King Janak was agitated and was regretting his decision. His anger was a result of his great love for Sita. Sometimes we are angrier when someone we love dearly is affected by circumstances.

When we are riled and ruffled and anger takes over we lose control and say and behave in an irrational manner. We say and do things we regret later.

But through it all Rama sat quiet and calm. The contrast between the two so visible.

Rama could have stood up on his own accord and seized the moment for himself but all things work in Divine timing. Sita had to learn the value of patience, of belief and faith as these would be the values that would keep her in good stead in the future.

On the other hand Rama had to learn the importance of keeping a cool head and the consequences of anger as this would be important in his future adventures. Keeping a cool and calm head allows us to think clearly and not panic and keeps us in control of the situation.

At this point, will Rama continue to wait for Guru to command or will he cease the situation and take matter into his own hands? That question answered by the letter J tomorrow.

Love is in the air - All thing occur in Divine timing. When we feel that things are not moving fast enough, time is actually giving us the space to grow into that moment that then becomes perfect.

The Ramayana is a historical chronicle of 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. 

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".

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.


Warm Regards

  2. How true, when we are angry or frustrated by circumstances we say words that should not be uttered and most of us don't even mean it. We are just venting out our frustrations. Waiting for the next parts when Lord Rama will finally win Sita's hands :)

    1. Thanks Prasanna. Anger surely clouds our judgement.

  3. Our deep attachment and love for someone can surely create situations when we lose a calm poise and come under the grips of regret or anger. Even a yogi like King Janaka could experience that feeling in that moment is a lesson for us mere mortals. Nicely told, Suzy!

  4. The contrast between a father's anxiousness and impatience, and the calmness of the Lord is so stark! the Lord is all-knowing, and we just have to wait and trust him...but that's the most difficult part!

  8. Very good life lesson in this post! I often pray that God help me respond, rather than react. I view reaction as quick and knee-jerk, stemming from selfishness. Response is slower and thoughtful and includes love.

  10. The fact that even during such a difficult situation, watching other kings trying to tie the bow, to win his soulmate, Rama was waiting for the order from his Guru speaks volume about the respect he has for his Guru :)

    It Happens For A Reason

    1. Thanks Vinodini. The Ramayana and Mahabharata have so many lessons we could learn. it's a pity we only read them as stories.

  12. Was not aware that Rama was waiting for the Guru's command. Got to do with the 'right muhura/timet'?

  18. Ahh that impatience with time not moving at the speed we think it should. Good to remember sometimes that we should be satisfied with what we have :)
