Flowers hold a great spiritual Power and Truth….This is the essential message of my new children’s book, Yaroslava’s Flowers, which is now available for all children and all those with a Child Heart.  It is a story that inspires everyone to experience the spiritual magic of Flowers, Nature, and Life, and how we each have the power to transform the world around us, and Within us!

Yaroslava’s Flowers is a story for all children and anyone with a youthful Heart.  Yaroslava is a little girl who loves flowers so much that she can hear them speak to her.  When the Flower Spirit appears to her and gives her a bag of magic seeds, she embarks on a Journey of the Spirit to discover the healing and transforming power of flowers.  As Yaroslava brings YFBackcovernew life to the places and people around her, she also discovers more about herself – through the power of flowers!”

Children’s stories especially have such power to sow seeds of wisdom and light, beauty and love, into their lives.  This is what I have endeavored to do with my children’s story and all my other writing.  I hope you will give this beautiful little book the opportunity to inspire your children and the children in your life….even those who may have forgotten that they still have an Inner Child deep within them!

The book is now available to order HERE, where you can also see previews, so please share it with others in your life.  I will need YOUR help to share this book with others around the world, so please consider helping in the following ways:

Poem: somewhere there is a place

somewhere there is a place
where the mind no longer understands
where all knowledge seems not the answer
where the mind acknowledges it does not know itself
where it sees clearly that it does not truly see
where a cry from some hidden place emerges to truly Know
and upon this cry its ceaseless movements fall upon a hush

somewhere there is a place
where desire’s emotions no longer fulfill
where feeling becomes something tasteless and worn
where its wild dueling energies seem a tired constant battle
where Life’s force for living feels suffocated and lost
where a deeper yearning cries from somewhere beneath
and upon this yearning its ceaseless movements calm

somewhere there is a place
where the body’s sensations seem to grow dull
where activities always seem at war with each other
where living becomes an eventual negotiation with death
where body’s cells feel as if imprisoned in a weary shell
where an unknown aspiration blazes from hidden depths
and upon this aspiration its ceaseless movements still

somewhere there is a place
where Knowledge is purest Light, endless Vision,
where Feeling is pure and serene, a struggle between Joy and Joy
where Effort is a harmony of endless embodied dreams
where Body is an organism of action fueled by Soul
where Humanity transforms and becomes the Freedom it seeks
where Heaven and Earth unite as the One Living God

somewhere there is a Place
somewhere there is Something Else
somewhere there is a vast Someone
somewhere …… where we dare to venture Beyond

Poetry Book Release: Transcendent Sky

After many years of Soul-seeking, Consciousness-diving, Spirit-soaring, and a lot Transcendent Sky Book Cover1of poetry-writing, I have finally published a book of poetry, entitled Transcendent Sky: A Spiritual Journey of Poetry, available in paperback at my E-store and as an e-book through Kindle Amazon and all other versions at Smashwords. It is a collection of poems that explore the spiritual essence of life through my own personal offering of inspiration, contemplation, and insight. It expresses some of my inner experiences and personal reflections along the spiritual journey with an intention to inspire the awakening of the Soul and Spirit towards greater enlightenment and self-awareness. It is a journey of poetry that evokes the Oneness of all of Life and the Divine Presence that dwells uniquely within All.

While many of the poems in my book are found here in this blog, there are many more poems that have never before been published which I believe other spiritual seekers may enjoy and appreciate. I hope you will consider supporting my first attempt in the world of publishing and welcome any feedback or ideas for spreading the word.  Please visit my book page for more information.

Here are a few ideas for how you can help me share this book with the rest of the world:

  • Buy the book as a gift for friends, family, or other poetry lovers in your life.

Poem: Twin Flame

in a world where all seems lost and untrue,

two beings sailing adrift, separate and alone,

calling upon the powers of Spirit’s good grace         

to embody a Connection of True Intimacy,               

found in unlikely places their Intrinsic Soul,

where Fate emerged from its long hiding place

and woke a Twin Flame by their Inner Identity.

 

a simple Glance upon a lone picture’s smile,

a few words read upon the ether’s profile,

and all the Heavens opened with a descending Flood,

washing over their Hearts with a Moment’s Touch,

igniting a Fusion between familiar strangers,

awakening the Bliss of a shared Destiny

where space and distance were no obstacles

to a mutual Discovery bound in Eternity’s Love:

a Yearning across ages seemed to be fulfilled,

Uniting two who were yet always the same One.

 

a long awaited reconciliation was upon their Soul:

his presence, a shining Light for her uneasy days,

her Laughter, a Dance of Joy for his lonely Heart,

her Eyes, an endless Ocean for him to merge within,

her Love, the compass of his Soul’s exploration.

 

through shadows and sufferings born of fear,

the two now One discovered strength to Soar,

separate paths now Interwoven and joined ever more,

a new Journey gazing into the Future’s Unknown,

a twin Phoenix arising from adventures long past,

flaming together towards the Dawn of One Soul.

Poem: i have something to say

PritiGhoshGold

i have something to say.

no matter whether i am believed or disbelieved,

rewarded or punished,

praised or belittled.

i must say what i have to say.

there is no other way.

yet should i say it poetically

only the poets would hear.

should i try selling it to voters

it would become lost in politics.

if i were to sing it

it would dance for a while,

then fade into unpopularity.

if i were to paint a picture of it,

its colors would speak for a while,

then dry into a dead permanence.

if i were to scream it,

yell it everywhere i go,

it would run in fear and anger,

recoiling into the shadows awaiting another day.

were i to put it into law,

it would lie scorned by the rebellious nature.

were i to kill for it,

it would wither itself into a lonely grave.

were i to represent it by any form,

surround it with words and deeds,

still there would seem an incompleteness to it’s nature.

yet if i were to ignore it,

stifle it as a repressed heart never to be expressed,

my Soul would cry ceaselessly unto the dying ages.

 

i have something to say,

and so with an inadequate word, i say

Love.
