God dwells in feeling
We can describe it as devotion.
It lays hold on even God.
The sentiment of devotion is a pious impulse of flawless perfection.
It is a protector of righteousness.
On the one hand so resourceful that it brings about realization
the Supreme Spirit,
on the other hand
it is also so delicate and fragile
this day’s fidelity
adherence often turn into nothingness
even outright privation
on the next day.
Devotion is shaken by suspicion
even the slightest flaw in the loved one.
The impulse of righteousness
the ties with the object of affectionate devotion are broken.
Maharshi Patanjali has given expression to a similar view:
“Only meditation practised for a long time
with constant devotion
