Winter’s Meditative Poem: Tears and Laughter – ‘The Ascending’ with Kahlil Gibran

White 1

This Poem by the realized soul and poet-prophet Kahlil Gibran is dedicated to the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation – Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – who moved us to tears as well to laughter with her words of wisdom, both powerful and enlightening, as well sprinkled with the most enjoyable  and spirited humor. While we shed tears of love and profound gratefulness or we’ve decorated our faces with spontaneous innocent smiles reflecting our heart’s wide openness and in depth fulfillment – we’ve always have been spiraled higher and higher towards our Spirit – the Ascending Trajectory that was designed for us by our spiritual teacher, Shri Mataji and realized through our awakened motherly power – our own Kundalini energy.


A poem from ‘Tears and Laughter’ by Kahlil Gibran

Part II – The Ascending

I have passed a mountain peak and my soul is soaring in the
Firmament of complete and unbound freedom;
I am far, far away, my companions, and the clouds are
Hiding the hills from my eyes.

Mist-Mountains 2 - Marielle
The valleys are becoming flooded with an ocean of silence, and the
Hands of oblivion are engulfing the roads and the houses;
The prairies and fields are disappearing behind a white specter
That looks like the spring cloud, yellow as the candlelight
And red as the twilight.

Sunset - USA- Omar

The songs of the waves and the humans of the streams
Are scattered, and the voices of the throngs reduced to silence;
And I can hear naught but the music of Eternity
In exact harmony with the spirit’s desires.
I am cloaked in full whiteness;
I am in comfort; I am in peace.

    This is what it means to be in reality…once we ascend our awareness is far far away from all this nonsensical illusions and delusions that we accept as reality but it is not… In reality we are in the kingdom of God which is filled with peace, joy and harmony. Thank you sharing this deep poem Ioana. Felt ii is so perfect to imbibe in during this holiday season.

    Thanks a lot for sharing…
    It is heard that in churches in USA people are reading Gibran’s very spiritual books…

    He said also:
    ”God is glorified through human’s joy.”
    ”You shall bless darkness as you would bless light.”
    ”If Lebanon was not my country, I would have make it mine.”
    ”Life has no meaning without meditation.”

    With love from Lebanon (Gibran’s country)
