How the sparks fly upward in fire,
How dead souls from the Real arise,
How the sun and moon and desire
Sail the infinite Sea of Sighs.

How the hidden waits in the Hider,
How the angel wars with the demon,
How the web jumps out of the Spider,
How the universe springs from Brahman.

How the doddering old man bent double
And the child in the green field leaping
And the young man looking for trouble
Have all gone to their silent sleeping.

How you and I and Time’s river
And the leaves of the years long slain
Will dance like old shadows for ever 
In the chambers of Brahman’s brain.

How the final moment flings you
Into the arms of darkest night,
How the Wheel turns round and brings you
Back again to the fields of light.

  1. Beautiful Poem, Lasha. Please accept my mudita (sympathetic Joy) on your possession of such a poetic gift.

  2. Christians in Canada will celebrate Easter on Sunday, March 27, 2016. Easter is regarded as the second most important religious holiday after Christmas.

    Both days are celebrated in great majority of Muslim countries with sizeable Christian minorities like Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran, Nigeria, Egypt, Lebanon, etc. Christmas is a national holiday in those countries but not the Easter.

    Unlike the so-called ‘civilized West’, mocking of Jesus or his mother Mary is considered blasphemy among the Believers of all Schools of Islamic Thoughts (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, Hanbali, and Ja’fri).

    The great majority of Muslims, however, don’t celebrate Easter or Christmas the way Christians do due to Holy Qur’an’s narrative of the birth and the end of prophet Jesus’ (as) life on Earth.

    “That they (Yahud and Nasara) boast, “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not,” Holy Qur’an (4:157).

    “Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise,” Holy Qur’an (4:158).

    Thus Holy Qur’an clearly states that Jesus (as) was never put on cross, or died on cross or resurrected afterward. Holy Qur’an also asserts in other places that both Torah (OT) and Ingeel (NT) were corrupted by their authors and revisionists. Robert W. Funk, renowned authority on the New Testament agrees with that in his book The Five Gospels.

    There are several other beliefs on which Islam doesn’t agree with Christianity. However, both faiths believe in virgin birth of Jesus, his ascend to Heaven and his second-coming. But, the purpose of his second-coming, according to Holy Qur’an is not to force conversion of Jews to Christianity (as believed by 80 million Evangelists), but as a Muslim to bring peace on Earth and to die a natural death afterwards.

    Personally, I think a Muslim, who joins his Christian friends or relatives in Easter celebration, is not committing an un-Islamic act.

    Happy Easter, everyone!

  3. Lasha, your poem is nice. How fortunate you are, this Easter!
    Celebrations of the transcendent spirit body and soul, the source of nature itself..

    “The Lamb misusd breeds Public Strife
    And yet forgives the Butchers knife”
    – William Blake

    Best of health and good fortune to you!

  4. I think that the best Christianity is the Vedic type, not that I know much about either.

    My self-appointed job is not to snuggle up to the warm and comfy core but to roam the periphery where the hook snouted predators lurk.

    Anyway, I like Lasha’s poem, picturesque and intimate, much better than the other one by anonymous author, cranking out trite and threadbare imagery, fit for a Presbyterian Father’s Day well-wishing card.

  5. A Methodist Father’s Day Card.
    for Lobro.

    Ol’ Brahman. Where time is not a river but
    a sea.
    Always and everywhere
    So Brahman thinks of you and me,
    And Brahman is both you and me,
    to look into a lover’s eyes
    or the eyes of one who brings you death
    is to see God
    and nothing less.

  6. Easter is a Pagan spring holiday. The unholy trinity Christianity, Judaism and Islam are all a farce.

    1. In reply to Karen.

      Yeah well, Lasha’s incessant and desperate attempts to do kabbalah alchemy and fuse Christianity with Hinduism/Buddhism, and always with the goal that Christianity be totally subsumed and done away it, is rather farcical also. Speaking of “farce”. On every Christian Holy Day Lasha presents Hinduism/Buddhism as if Hinduism/Buddhism is somehow Christianity. I don’t even get the impression Lasha really worships Hinduism/Buddhism, or even cares in the least about the two Eastern religions. One gets the impression Lasha is just trying to distract and deflect from Christianity every Christian Holy Day. Lasha is too obvious. A burning desire to do kabbalah alchemy on Christianity so Christianity gets subsumed and lost under Hinduism/Buddhism, Lasha has yet to figure out how to do kabbalah alchemy without being so awkwardly obvious and transparent. She’s not very good at it. Keep trying, honey, maybe someday Lasha will get the hang of doing magic tricks. So far her kabbalah alchemy is a total joke.

      The poem, inspired as it is by Lasha’s not very good intentions ; Lasha’s poem, inspired by her attempt to do alchemical fusion of various religions so Christianity gets lost in the mix, is of course mediocre and trite and *yawn* keep trying, honey, maybe someday you’ll succeed in your alchemical witchcraft, *yawn*.

      Karen’s beloved Dasein Existentialism, an alchemical fusion of Sufi Islam, jew Kabbalah, the ancient religions of Egypt and Babylon, Dionysus, Pan, “god is dead”, Hinduism, conjured-up in donmeh Turkey Freemasonry Halls, and who knows what else is mixed into the cauldron, is somehow “not” a farce. Yeah sure, Karen, whatever.

      1. Troj

        Karen is every bit the self righteous pompous ass as any self righteous pseudeo judeo Christian asshole. You find them in every religion. If only she’d stayed in church.

        John Hagee would be all to willing to hold her up as an example of how fucked up a non christian can get. Her house is most definitely unclean. That makes her an advocate for all she speaks against.

        No light in her eye, in her old age, if you know what that means. Just a bitter biotch.

      2. You can say anything you want to Him. In my case, it’s always only to be proven wrong. It’s only blasphemy when you take it to the public, looking for their consolation and sympathy, which is just weak and pathetic. Do you put the fickle ignoramus public before that? And, at the same time, berate and ridicule that ignorant public? Your house is an unclean mess, Karen. This guarantees I’ll have a shitty day tomorrow.

        STFU, Karen. Do you expect anybody to trust you, after you betray the most holy trust?

  7. Being here and so I read. A few times. Enough to relate and appreciate. Reinterpret some lines to read as… All in all: Expansive, sad, hopeful. Thanks.

  8. Easter is a Babylonian pagan ritual, but remember we are dealing with thousands of years of not only misinformation, but soul/mind-programming for total global trance induction. That is the purpose of all organized-religions from whence these “days” have come from.

    Passover, Not Easter Bunny –

    1. Easter, Astarte, Esther, Ashteroth. It’s the one with all those titties.

      Seth was called Israel too. It means the same as Aryan. Esther wasn’t an Israelite, the Persians were. Wanna play ‘spot the Canaanite in the temple’?

  9. hp, ungenius, et al

    Properly interpreting “gospel” should offer the kind of challenge that brings all our powers of intellect to bear, where “the head sees what the heart knows”

    I came up with some better wording for what is being indicated in Luke 8: 17-18

    “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath (i.e.; hears the spirit), to him shall be given….”

    As a preamble to my interpretation, one definition of “Grace” is: “a state of Being where Man is “in God’s Image”, as reflected by the absence of a parasitic condition.”

    An interpretation to ponder

    “Be careful to hear only what is truly in the heart, for a state of Grace is upon Man for him to inhabit in its entirety. Here, matter and energy are one and the same in coalescence – Spirit, wherein its orientation enables him to choose the nature of his experience through intending imagination.”

    The basic dynamics are no different in HOW we do WHAT we are doing NOW. The difference is that WHERE this doing IS now, the ‘ingredients’ of Grace are diluted in a miasmic jar of mayonaisse.

    P.S. Some readers will scoff

    Scoffers: “How do you know all this, Brownhawk?
    Brownhawk: “Do not worry your little heads over the “how”. Just know that I’ve told you “what”. And now you can die laughing.”

    I know therefore I am a metacomedian

    No guess

    1. “A good half of the effort of understanding what the Indian philosophers were after – and their subtleties make most of the great European philosophers look like schoolboys.”
      (T.S. Eliot)

      Go East, young man.
      If you really want to know.

      1. Brownhawk “east” from the “west”, “west” from the “east”, and from everywhere else, every which way

        you doubt this, hp?

    1. words can be so inadequate

      why did you post that “go east young man” reply? I don’t want to jump to any conclusions

      1. I was expanding on Eliot’s quote.
        A logical conclusion.. To find answers to your questions; go East.
        Emerson obviously says it better..

        “In the great books of India, an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence, which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the questions that exercise us.” » Ralph Waldo Emerson

      2. hp

        Granted, studies of Eastern thought can bring a student closer to Truth than what is presented as the true teaching of Christ in its diluted format of “Christianity”. Thinking men like Eliot, Menken, Emerson, etc saw the shallowness in the West which couldn’t help but make them look to the East – this has been the climate in the West ever since Columbus started the whole mission of deception. But a truer understanding of Christ has been here all along, to be found through various native sources which my study has been accessing for 40 plus years

        I ain’t just some quaint ol’ injun who’s been posting on these threads for the last 3 or so years. My work is important, maybe even seminal in the sense that native knowledge has been virtually non-existent as written format until recently. I like to think of Darkmoon as being my gracious host as a ‘writer’s guinea pig’ (hahaha). But here is represented information which never saw the light of day in the “West”. Jibing it with extant gospel text is a tough nut to crack.

        And in spite of all its virtues, components of Eastern doctrine can be misleading through claims in the form of a false aura of authoritativeness.

        We are our OWN “absolute authority” whose delegation is inherent in Man

        The Russian dollhouse is a skyscraper it would seem
