The Tree

I stand under the tree,
embracing all its energy,
its gentle shade stroking our hearts,
healing our wounds, nourishing our spirit.

in awe of its magnificence,
I see a string of pearls,
pearls of wisdom from
the lineage of extraordinary masters.

their message very profound
yet very simple,
surrender to your heart,
devotion is the only way.

see the light in all,
and all in good light,
for he who seems invisible
is clearly resident in all.

Narayana!!! I bow to you
let me swim through the ocean of life.
help me reach you,
the ocean of compassion.

you are our creator,
you are our destination,
you are our path and
you are our guide.

infinite is your affection,
limitless your care,
so forgive my limitations,
as i surrender to your grace.
