Siva Poem and Our March 2012 Two-Minute News Video

When a Sivabhaktar in India recently received a gifted mala made of Kauai-grown Rudraksha seeds, she was moved to wonder, “Siva, why are you crying those fabled tears?” She wrote a poem we share today:

Beads Wet, Beads Sweet

“Why do You cry?”

I asked Him

“Why are there tears in Your eye?”

The Lord of lords

the Life of our lives

the Word in sound

the Dance in movement

the Everything in nothing

the All in all

looked at me and in Silence said -

“I gave you all everything

all of you hold all of me

and yet something makes you forget

who you are

where you come from

and, where you are going.

You choose to suffer when you could celebrate

You choose to resent when you could rejoice

You choose to resist when you could accept

And then you complain incoherently

beg and plead for liberation!

Who ties you down? Where are your bonds?

Who created the shackles that hold you back?

I feel your pain even before you sense it

It hurts me so

I cry to see my gifts wasted and thrown away!

My Third Eye flashes and I see your future misery

should you hold to your habits of yore

Open your eyes, awake

Let your senses do what they were given to do

Step away and stand aside, out of your own way

Align your will with Mine

All will be well, as it always is

Let my tears wash away

the debris collected from births before

Stand fresh and clean in the moment

and you will see the smile,

the smile in my Other eye!”

Aum Namah Sivaya

Sivaya Namah Aum!
