Love is in the Air - Unwavering



Day 21 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Unwavering

Jatayu watited for his Rama
To give him an important clue
On hearing this Rama lost his calm
And roared to Ravana mrityu (death)

Sita unwavering and scornful
Ravan's rage at the point of harm
Meditative and thoughtful
Her soul reached out to Rama

Through veils unseen Rama felt her beseech
He looked up towards the heavens
Commanding all to Sita reach
Protect her from the demons


Ravana carried Sita over the sea in his Pushpak Viman (aircraft) to his golden city of Lanka. On the way the vulture king Jatayu tried hard to save Sita but Ravana cut off his wing and he felt to the ground critically injured. The dying Jatayu waited for Rama to provide him with the details of Ravana forcefully taking Sita, Sita crying out for Rama and the direction they went in.

On hearing this Rama is both sad and very angry. He cannot bear the thought of Sita scared and crying out in fear, pleading with the demon. With a twang of his bow that rocked the earth and shook the skies and reverberated across the Universe, Rama vows death for Ravana. Citizens of the Universe rejoice, for hope arises that Ravana's reign of terror will soon end.

Ravana took Sita to his island of Lanka, He placed her in the Ashok Vatika (garden) guarded by fierce looking demonesses. He tried very hard to win Sita, but Sita loved only Rama. Ravana was beginning to lose his patience. He was agitated and getting angrier by the day. In contrast Sita was firm but calm. Sita's soul reached out to Rama. She had every confidence in Rama that someday he would come and rescue her. Sita found strength and solace in meditation.

Rama could sense Sita reaching out to him. Though we are all in physical manifestations, a part of our spirit remains in spirit world. When we connect with our higher selves, it is our spirit we connect with. Rama tapped into his own and Sita's spirit - Vishnu and Lakshmi - and prayed for Sita's safety. And the heavens moved to Rama's command.

Sita prayed that Rama would find her and that he would find helpers along the way. And the heavens moved to Sita's command.

How did the heaven's move?  That's  brought to you by the letter V.

Love is in the air. Know that whenever we ask the Divine for help, it is always lovingly given though it may not be in the way we expect. And know that there are helpers on the other side taking care of us.

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
