A Moments Indulgence

by Rabindranath Tagore

The works I have in hand I will finish afterwards.

and my work becomes an endless toil in a shoreless sea of toil.

Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs;

Now it is time to sit quiet, face to face with thee,
and to sing dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure.

Isn't that a fabulous spiritual poem about God being our all in all?!

Short Inspirational Poems about rest by Katherine T Owen

Thank you

I have only to
be still and quiet
to be at one with
the Beloved.

I lie here crying
at the sweetness of You.

All I can say is
Thank you.

Well done for experiencing the independence from the world which comes from dependency on God.

“Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.”
(Luke 10:23-24, NKJV)
