Bhakti Yoga: To me devotion, highest respect and love flown towards our deities or God/ Goddess. Here respect is more important than love towards whome we worship.
Seeker of Art, I am none in this Multiverse, yet part of this Multiverse.

I was just cleaning my room...just doing droll, monotonous housework...and of course, I had my own personal bhajan/kirtan collection playing on low volume in the background...

Then, I heard Shiv Ratan Dhan Payo by Vishek Sharma playing in the background...


Something moved me...I felt something...didn't know what, but the upbeat tune made me take my set of bongos out of storage...and replay the kirtan on full volume.

I sat on my bed, staring at a picture of Lord Shiva and playing my bongos, mimicking every single beat of that tune (and it's not an easy one to play either)...I was laughing...just laughing with tears of love pouring out...I was happy! I was keeping up with the tune, I was offering my playing to Shiva who was also helping me to play and teaching me...I felt it...I was laughing and crying at the same time with joy...it's been a while since that happened.

Om Namah Shivaya

My mother should not be encouraging me in this. lol

So today, she's like "come over here, Di...I've got something to show you".

I went over to where she was busy playing with her laptop and said "okay, wassup?"

Then she showed me all of the different Lord Shiva glass cabochon pendants for $2 each on Wish dot com.

I was like "ooohhhhh...screeeeee.....*insert delightful squeal*......oooohhhh.....niiiiiiice".

Then she said, "I'll buy you one for Christmas...which one would you like? choose it".

I was going "I like that one...no, I have changed my mind...that one....wait up, that one is better...nah, I'll stick with my original choice...but...no, I don't want that one either...I just cannot decide, mum".

She said "you can only choose one, which one?"

Immediately, I saw this as Lord Shiva Himself, trying to get me over His Saguna aspect of "namam" and "roopam"...He would have to do better than that to fool me. lol

I said to mum "I'm just happy to look and I don't really want one...but if you want to buy me one, go for it...I don't care which one...you can choose it".

After that, I went into a deep trance.

Om Namah Shivaya

What is the use of discussing the nature of Brahman,
When a flower would understand it more than a person does?
What is the use of talking about Your Infinite Reality,
When others are still fully tethered to this illusory one?
What is the use of discussing experiences of Consciousness,
When others exist in the selective, uncaring unconscious?
Words fall upon deaf ears that hear.
Actions fall upon blind eyes that see.
What would You have me do, oh Mahadeva,
Beyond loving You, giving of my soul into Your care?
I await your instruction and application.
Why do You take so long to play me as Your instrument?
Or would you rather have me serve You only,
As You're the only one who listens when I speak, who watches when I act,
Who talks to me when nobody else would even bother.
Is this how it is meant to be forever? Just existing in You without external involvement in Your illusion?
I'm lost in love for You, but I also grow weary of this lonely, mortal existence.
Rescue me Shiva! I surrender to You once more. - Your Shivani.
