My luxuriating life together, with the lovely, Goddess Lakshmi 🌺

Lustrous as fire, radiant as gold,
Resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon.

For the next several days I will be sharing one my treasured and privileged bond with you.

Goddess Lakshmi Pt.1

The ancient story of 
Goddess Lakshmi
— also known as Sri;
Bestower of power, wealth and sovereignty

Draped in red saree, bedecked with gold ornaments, seated on a lotus, pot in hand, flanked by white elephants, the image of Lakshmi adorns most Hindu homes and business establishments.

Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, fortune, power, luxury, beauty, fertility, and auspiciousness. She holds the promise of material fulfilment and contentment.
She is described as restless, whimsical yet maternal, with her arms raised to bless and to grant.

For centuries Hindus have invoked

her thus:
Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot.
Delighted by songs on lustful elephants,
Bedecked with lotuses, pearls

and gems.

Lustrous as fire, radiant as gold,
Resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon. Mistress of cows and horses
— Take away of poverty and misfortune
Brings joy, riches, harvest and children.
Shri is the sacred sound of cosmic auspiciousness and abundance since Vedic times.
The popularity of Lakshmi can be gauged by the fact that her sacred name

Shri.

Shri is written atop most documents and spoken before addressing a God,
a teacher, a holy man or any revered individual. The word evokes amongst other things: grace, affluence, abundance, auspiciousness, and authority.

When the word is spoken or written, an aura of holiness is established. Whatever follows the word is imbued with divine blessing. Married men and women are addressed as Shriman and Shrimati as they have Lakshmi’s blessings to harness the wealth of the world to support family and sustain society. Ascetics are not addressed as Shriman as they have renounced worldly riches; unmarried men and women are not addressed as Shriman and Shrimati as they are still in preparation for the householder’s life.

Just as the word Aum is associated with the mystical side of life, the word ‘Shri’ is associated with the material side of existence.

I believe in forever. I believe that the spirit is the love heart. I believe that the spirit is the “souls” (source) heartbeat. I believe in high-spirited humans. I believe in the truth of meeting your souls counterpart in a whirlwind of spiritual dance. I believe life unfolds us in a perfectly charted Uni’Verse’All choreography. I believe in Uni’Verse’All Human Beings. A race where we all finish together, there is no first, and there is certainly, no last; there is only Being Human. I believe that a huge majority misses (longing for what is forgotten) the colors of the rainbow, when in reality; It’s always there even if you can’t see it. I believe we all paint our own picture every day. What it looks like is up to us. I believe that we are all within one system, one spirit, one song, one dance, one breath. ONE 1! I believe we are all one; At least we should be. I believe the day drips with dreams and divinity. I recognize that the sky is not the limit. But what I wonder..... Why is it that we only love to the moon and back? When we can love to the furthest reaches of all galaxies and never return.
