Shiva of infinite name & form

Shiva of infinite name & form,
You are everywhere within our sight.
You guide our journey invisibly,
You remain close all through the long night.

as iron is called by the magnet,
Your wholeness calls out to the fragment!

You are the distant thunder booming
in the far hills of the searching mind.
Shiva, You show Your face in the clouds
& we leave our distractions behind.

as iron is called by the magnet,
Your wholeness calls out to the fragment!

Shiva, You free us from delusion
to reveal the holiness hidden
in the playful changes of maya,
& all that we still call forbidden!

as iron is called by the magnet,
Your wholeness calls out to the fragment!

Shiva of infinite name & form,
You are everywhere within our sight.
You guide our journey invisibly,
You remain close all through the long night.

  1. When we can grasp the concept so outside our daily logic…that we are in All but at the same time All is in us…we will begin to perceive the miracle of being alive. Your thoughts, my friend, help me to approach this higher thinking, even if I can only hold it for short moments at a time. Thank you for this..for sharing your beautiful wisdom and learning with us all. Much love and gratitude for you ❤️🤗🙏🦋🌈🎈💃🏻

    1. i too can only hold it briefly. writing these poems helps me to hold it longer, deeper, & eventually it will become ever more a natural response to life situations. i’m still on training wheels now🤪😊
