Love is in the Air - Nexus



Day 14 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Nexus


Rama, Sita, Lakshman in simplicity
Set forth for adventures new
Fulfilling many destinies
Did Rama arrange this too?

Life often takes unexpected turns
Seems desolate and unfair
But blessings lie in many burdens
Though in your face they do not stare.


Rama and Sita embark on a new phase of their lives accompanied by Lakshman. They leave to begin their simple lives as ascetics in the forest. God and Goddess about to commence their journey to fulfil their Spiritual purpose on Earth - the annihilation of evil from the Earth. And along the way, helping to fulfil so many destinies.

In a previous incarnation Sita as Vedvati had cursed Ravana when he had attempted to molest her, that she would be the cause of his death in her next life.  Ravana was the mortal incarnation of a gatekeeper of Vaikunth the abode of Lord Vishnu. Having made fun of some young Brahmins, they cursed him to take a mortal birth. Only Lord Vishnu in a human incarnation could free him from the curse.

Dashrath's destiny and karmic payback lay in the separation with his most beloved son and a realisation that it was Kaushalya who was the divine mother and his strength. Unfortunately for Dashrath, this was the end for him, never to see his Rama again.

Kaikeyi's father's kingdom had been ravaged by demonic and evil men She vowed that one day she would be the cause of their annhilation. Divinity was on the way to fulfilling that wish.  Kaikeyi's moments of sad repentance and understanding of the wisdom within (and not without in the form of Manthara) and the true meaning of selfless love was to begin.

Kaushalya and Sumitra were to face their biggest test of forgiveness towards Kaikeyi.

Urmila (Lakshman's wife) demonstrated the true aspects of selfless love - understanding and sacrifice for a greater cause.

That one event that Kaikeyi started (in my Love Misplaced post)  commenced a series of events and intricately connected destinies. So many for God and Goddess to help fulfil. So many soul lessons to learn, so many sacrifices made. So much love God and Goddess showing for mankind.

How do Rama, Sita and Lakshman adapt to life in the forest?  That's brought by the letter O

Love is in the air. May we remember that in difficult situations lie great opportunities for spiritual learning and soul growth. May we have the faith that in the end life is as it should be.

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
