In 2001, I got connected to the interent for the first time, Adelphia showed up at my door,
in Conway, NH.
The Man said okay, you must choose an email name, oh, I said, I had not thought about that..I told the man, to give me a moment,
I went into another room, and prayed to God..
I heard...

"THE HEART OF THE LOTUS IS 'ONE'"

I cam back to the man, and repeated this,
he said that is too long, I thought for a
moment, and said,
"how about lotusheartone"
he typed it in, and said you got it!

then as time went on, and I forgotten this incident, my mom brought me some books..
One was

Manifold Unity

The Ancient World's Perception
of the Divine Pattern of Harmony
and Compassion

by Collum

~Wisdom of the East Series

this book opens with a POem

THE HEART OF THE LOTUS IS 'ONE'

'AUM'--so chanted, in parable, the ancient Indian Seers--
Is the three-fold basic vibration, the musical SOUND
'To Be,' Being, and Ceasing-from-being.
Unfolding as a lovely flower, eight-petalled,
An octave of consequential notes :
Seven the grades, the inter-locking ratios,
The fellowship linking the Many in the One
With the bond of brotherhood, of a common Father as sons.

'A,' they said, as they chanted solemnly,
Is the sound of building up,
'M,' they said, is the sound of breaking down,
And 'U' is the bridging sound of serialization
Sustaining, extending, holding in balance
The ebb and the flow of Being's course
--The 'Yang' and the 'Yin', the Chinese poets called it--
The relation between that we know as Time,
As Space, or as Consciousness,
Enabling the 'I' to conceive a 'Thou'.

Gayatri, the Indian Sages called this measure,
The 'bird' Gayatri, swift hawk, flight of the Eagle to the Sun,
Bearer of the Plant of continued life
From generation to generation, spanning Time.
Said they, who hummed this mantra Sound,
Seeking thus to demonstrate
The Wheel of the law of progression :
Within the Cause lies the Effect,
Within the 'I' the seed of 'Thou',
Within that inconceivable, the limitless Eternal,
Lies Time, Space, what is, and what is not,
The germ of generation.

The 'Heart' that 'speaks', the Egyptian Seers called it--
That utters the 'Word' we know as 'Creation'.
'Thoth', they named it, Tongue and Messenger,
Executive of the POWER TO BE.

Eight-petalled Lotus, City of the Eight,
Octave of potentiality, all things containing,
Maintaining, and at the end resuming :
Lovely Harmonia's musical manifestation,
Source and Sum of Number,
Father and Mother of Doing, Being, and Knowing--
Within thy cup, O Flower, those Seers saw enshrined
The Golden Seed of Being's cycle :
Verily, they sang, the Heart of this Lotus is ONE.

~ ~ ~

I shared this story here already, but the book fell off the shelf, one of the cats running across the book shelf, hehe, I have four Sealpoint Siamese cats, crazy, huh?
And I thought is was time to share this POem again. ...

LOve and Reverence to ALL... .

Blue Lotus

Blue lotus,
echo of my ancestors,
I drink you in,
and I am transported
to a time of daydreams
and ecstasy.

Wine and flower petals,
golden elixir,
passed to me
in the dreamtime,
flowing through me,
pulsing the ancient dream.

Opening to the morning sun,
spilling your fragrant nectar,
into the air around me,
closing in the evening
you magically disappear
floating on the waters of chaos.

Dance with me
blue lotus
the dance of ancient gods,
spinning,
turning to renew,
releasing me to higher realms.

Memories awaken,
of days long gone,
standing in your fragrant presence,
memories seeds,
still live within my spirit.

You are like the Nile,
river of my birth,
her tributaries
reaching,
like a blossom to the sea.

Blue lotus,
mystical flower,
come to me,
dance in my spirit once more
and transport me home
to the place of my birth,
on the blue Niles shores.

Blue Lotus, Nefertem,
echo of my ancestors,
I drink you in
and I am transported................

~by Katelyn Mariah~

************************************
The Lotus-Flower

All the heights of the high shores gleam
Red and gold at the sunset hour:
There comes the spell of a magic dream,
And the Harbour seems a lotus-flower;

A blue flower tinted at dawn with gold,
A broad flower blazing with light at noon,
A flower forever with charms to hold
His heart, who sees it by sun or moon.

Its beauty burns like a ceaseless fire,
And tower looks over the top of tower;
For all mute things it would seem, aspire
To catch a glimpse of the lotus-flower.

Men meet its beauty with furrowed face,
And straight the furrows are smoothed away;
They buy and sell in the market-place,
And languor leadens their blood all day.

At night they look on the flower, and lo!
The City passes with all its cares:
They dream no more in its azure glow,
Of gold and silver and stocks and shares.

The Lotus dreams 'neath the dreaming skies,
Its beauty touching with spell divine
The grey old town, till the old town lies
Like one half-drunk with a magic wine.

Star-loved, it breathes at the midnight hour
A sense of peace from its velvet mouth.
Though flowers be fair -- is there any flower
Like this blue flower of the radiant South?

Sun-loved and lit by the moon it yields
A challenge-glory or glow serene,
And men bethink them of jewelled shields,
A turquoise lighting a ground of green.

Fond lovers pacing beside it see
Not death and darkness, but life and light,
And dream no dream of the witchery
The Lotus sheds on the silent night.

Pale watchers weary of watching stars
That fall, and fall, and forever fall,
Tear-worn and troubled with many scars,
They seek the Lotus and end life's thrall.

The spirit spelled by the Lotus swoons,
Its beauty summons the artist mood;
And thus, perchance, in a thousand moons
Its spell shall work in our waiting blood.

Then souls shall shine with an old-time grace,
And sense be wrapped in a golden trance,
And art be crowned in the market-place
With Love and Beauty and fair Romance.

Roderic Quinn

Thanks Lotus,

"eight-petalled,
An octave of consequential notes"

I needed that one.

God bless you and the kitties.

Lotus - That is interesting.

I happened to be a Hindu and in our culture the Lotus holds lot of value and meaning as well.

Lotus is symbolic for our S-elf. The concept goes like this: Lotus stays in water, but doesn't retain water, it stays above - always. Likewise, we stays in The World - the material realm, but we should be like Lotus, staying ABOVE the material realm, never getting absorbed in it, and keeping our S-elf to ourself.


As much as I know you, you chose the right name.

From the Golden Book...

Every man is born bearing within him the image of his polar being.
As he grows, this image grows within him;
It takes form and is filled with life and colour.
Man is not conscious of it. Yet it is his ALTER EGO,
The Lady of his dreams, his PRINCESS OF THE VISION.
In quest of her he must eternally go.
In Her alone, he will find a perfect echo of his soul,
For in their union, the limit between the I and the THOU is obliterated.
Since she is his SINGULAR, his LEGITIMATE SPOUSE.
And SILENCE will then be the depository of the fullness of their Love.

At the first sign of a conflict, you're outta here. You'd best make good on your last chance and control your impulsivity.
