Soul Calls Two  ~  In Thy Light

© All Rights Reserved

1. Thy Light In Me

Commentary

         The devotee goes through many stages on the spiritual path; some difficult and some blissful. There comes a time of immense feelings of separation and tears of longing. The devotee also passes through the dark night of the soul where the heart is dry and devoid of feeling; God seems nowhere near and life seems to have no meaning.

        Long asleep in delusion, the devotee keenly feels the desire to be awake in Truth and bathed in Divine Light where darkness cannot dwell.

Lyrics

Mother, Mother, Mother, Oh Mother

Mother help me see Thy glorious Light,
Take the tears and take the night.
Mother, I want to see
Mother, Thy Light in me.

Mother bathe me in Thy glorious Light,
Thy Light illumines all and makes it right.
Mother, I want to be
Mother, awake in Thee.

Mother, Mother, Mother, Oh Mother

In Thy Light all Truth, all Love does shine,
In Thy Light I know, I’m safe, I’m Thine.
Mother, come help me see
Mother, Thy Perfect Light in me.

Mother, Mother, Mother, Oh Mother

2. Oh Mother Mine

Commentary

         Here, the devotee describes in praise and gratitude the meditative experience of the spiritual eye and the bliss of breathlessness.

Lyrics

Breath stopped by the sight
Of Thy wondrous Light
Oh Mother mine, Oh, Mother Divine.

The world disappears, no worries or fears
When I behold Your ring of gold.
Oh Mother mine, Oh, Mother Divine.

Take me within, deep through the blue,
Beyond the star to be with You.
Oh Mother mine, Oh, Mother Divine.

In stillness sweet, Thy love I feel,
It is then I know You are real.
Oh Mother mine, Oh, Mother Divine.

Come, Mother, come, fill me once more,
Take me home to Thy Divine shore.
Oh Mother mine, Oh, Mother Divine

3. Eternal Presence

Commentary

         Gurudeva, Sri Sri Paramahansa Yoganandaji has written that in His early years He longed ardently for Divine Mother and She came to Him as His sublime Gurudeva, Swami Sri Yukteswarji.

         The Eternal Presence of the Divine is perceived by the devotee as the One Omnipresent, Omnipotent, All Pervasive, Ever Blissful, Ever Conscious Beloved; beyond quality and thought, beyond and within creation; sometimes without form, sometimes in the form that most touches the devotee’s heart ~ eternally present, without beginning or end, and bestowing Unconditional Love and Ever-new Joy.

         Recognizing the Divine Eternal Presence in meditation, the devotee is filled with ardor and the will to go beyond phenomenon to merge with that Eternal Presence.

Lyrics

I will rush through the pores of the blue
Into Thine Eternal Presence.
My Beloved, Gurudeva, my Beloved,
Eternal Presence.

You are my Light, You are my Way,
You are just behind my darkest night,
with me each day.
Gurudeva, Gurudeva, My Beloved,
Eternal Presence.

I will float on the breeze of Thy Bliss,
Into Thine Eternal Presence.
My Beloved, Divine Mother, My Beloved, Eternal Presence.

You are the star seen from afar,
You are the opal door hidden no more,
Divine Mother, Eternal Presence.

I will soar on the wings of Thy Joy
Filled with Thine Eternal Presence.

You are the Life of my soul,
You are the Glory foretold.
My Beloved, Divine Beloved, my own Beloved,
Eternal Presence.

4. He Comes

Commentary

         This Soul Call echoes and responds to the words of Rabindranath Tagore, quoted by Sri Daya Mataji in the book “Enter The Quiet Heart”

“Have you not heard His silent steps?
He comes, comes, ever comes.”

         The devotee affirms The Coming and calls upon God to inflame the soul and give the intoxicating drink of bliss consciousness.

Lyrics

Can’t you hear His footsteps falling?
Can’t you hear His silent calling?
Oh my own.

He Comes, He Comes, deep within my heart.
He Comes, He Comes.

Come bring Your torch
Ignite my soul.
Vanish all darkness ages old.
Oh my own.

He Comes, He Comes, deep within my heart.
He Comes, He Comes.

Come let me drink Your mystic brew
Bring me the joy that’s ever-new.
Oh my own.

He Comes, He Comes, deep within my heart.
He Comes, He Comes.

I can hear His footsteps falling.
I can hear His silent calling.
Oh my own.

He Comes, He Comes, deep within my heart.
He Comes, He Comes.

He Comes, He Comes.

5. You Are The Center Of My Life

Commentary

         Anchored in the Divine, the devotee’s life revolves around and is focused on the Divine Beloved. Recognizing that “. in God do I live, move, and have my being,” loving God is the only desire of the devotee’s heart; the only lasting value, the one Divine Goal.

Lyrics

You are the center of my life.
You are my Refuge, You are my Light,
You are my Polestar each day and night.
You are the center of my life.

I will reason with Your wisdom,
I will act with Your joy.
You are the center of my life.

I will follow where You lead me
Hand in hand faithfully.
You are the center of my life.

You are my Refuge, You are my Light,
You are my Polestar each day and night.
You are the center of my life.

I will rest in Your Presence.
I will touch Your holy feet.
You are the center of my life.

I will drink so deeply
From the fountain of Your bliss.
You are the center of my life.

You are my Refuge, You are my Light,
You are my Polestar each day and night.
You are the center of my life.

There is nothing left to do Lord,
But to love You constantly.
You are the center of my life.

6. River Of Peace

Commentary

         The devotee feels the Divine Beloved within and from that Source
comes great and unending peace, love, and bliss.

Lyrics

Thy river of Peace flows through me
Constantly, filling me,
Now and forever.

Thy river of Love flows through me
Constantly, filling me,
Now and forever.

Thy river of Bliss flows through me
Constantly, filling me,
Now and forever.

Filling me, constantly,
Now and forever.
