Maula, mere maula {God, my God}

This song is an extremely melodious song{that I highly recommend} and was a hit when it was released in 2007. It played so often on the radio. It was such a romantic song to dedicate to someone. It transports me to a time when my youthful eyes accommodated unicorns and fairies. Wisdom was nigh; but infatuation drew the curtains. Innocent days, juvenile ways!

Today, this song is more spiritual to me. It’s one song that stirs up my spirit, body and soul all at once, resonating with all of my beliefs at the same time. I believe every religion is deeply rooted in love and humanity. That is the first commandment and principle that we must strive to perfect before we begin to debate about any other tenets. And if we perfect ‘love’, there won’t be any argument, any way!

I have divided my poem{inspired by the song} into 3 parts. The first one focuses on the most beautiful definition of love in the world that St. Paul writes to the Corinthians in his first letter. There are innumerable verses on love in the Bible, especially the New Testament. I believe Jesus’ teachings were mostly on love{including forgiveness, which is a subset} and faith. Jesus demonstrated and perfected this pure form of agape love and became the epitome of love because from the beginning itself God was{is} love and we were created out of His abundance of love …to love! Try replacing the word ‘God’ in scripture verses, and you’ll notice they come alive! The second part is completely inspired by this Bollywood song and the third contains a dose of my interpretation, scriptures and this song, all three-in-one!

My Lord and my God! – poem by Ruelha

God is love; love is God.
All other things are just fraud.
Let all that you do be done in love.
That is the way to recognize the dove.
Love is patient; love is kind.
And to fulfill that, at times, even blind!
Love does not envy; love does not boast.
Love does not seek to raise its own toast.
Love is not proud and it never dishonours.
Even when something incessantly bothers.
Love is not self-seeking.
It is what keeps the heart beating,
the sole purpose of your existence and living!
Love is not easily angered.
It makes it difficult to get triggered.
Love keeps no records of wrongs.
It instead chooses to play the sweet songs.
Love does not delight in evil.
Or care about things in retrieval.
Love rejoices with the truth.
Even if it means chugging bitter vermouth.
Love always protects; love always trusts.
Love is definitely not about skin and lust.
Love always hopes; love always perseveres.
No matter the problem, and how severe.
Love never fails, because God never fails.
Have you really understood these details?
The beauty in your eyes,
melts the coldest ice.
In them I see,
who I want to be.
When I look into those eyes,
it's like I bathe and re-baptize
in the waters of love.
and the purity from above.

In your eyes, let me forever be.
Away from restlessness, to lay in tranquility.
You have become my only desire.
When you turn your gaze towards me, I feel fire.
All the time, I'm thinking about you.
You've added colours to all my blues.
You have become part of every conversation.
Somehow I manage that in any situation.

I even associate you with a peculiar smell.
It's like when I think of you, my nostrils swell.
More fragrant than exotic flowers.
My senses have lost sense of reality and that power.
The way you flip your hair,
Makes me blush and stare.
The beauty within your eyes have made me mad.
My heart has trespassed the barriers protecting it in clad.

I wish to build you a temple,
where only I will be permitted to assemble.
A home just for you and me,
to protect even the shadows of our sanctity!
In your beautiful eyes, let me forever be.
Away from restlessness, to lay in tranquility.
I see our future in your eyes.
And it fills me up with butterflies. 

And so this is the way it has become.
Though to innately understand it, there'll be just some.
Love is now my God.
On that path, peacefully I trod.
In my pursuit, this is what I found.
It is the power of love that makes one strong.
Love brings peace; love brings joy.
And some fool with it like a toy.
Whoever does not love, does not know God.
Because it was the breath of love that put the universe in accord.
No one has ever seen God, but if we love He lives in us.
What good is all of your knowledge, faith, and trust?
Faith can move the mountains; but without love you're powerless.
Perfect love casts out all fear.
Love is the only law to which you must adhere.
All other things cause endless debates.
But this is the common grain on every plate.
Against love there is no law.
Because that is the only thing without a flaw.
Love is the greatest commandment.
with no strings or fallacious attachments.
God is love; love is God.
All other things are just fraud.
The one whose heart is filled with love,
is the one whom God also prefers!
So, open those gates and let the streams flow.
Let the power of love from your heart, gush forth.
My Lord and my God,
In love, we live in one accord!

I have a very creative imagination. Most of my poems do not hint at my life/situation. Kindly refrain from drawing such parallels. Much of what I write is purely fictional. If you know me well enough, you’ll realize none of this resonates with my life! I have always written from my heart …about topics that I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/melancholic/intense piece. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a way it was not intended. That is just my humble request. Please note, some of my writings may contain material unsuitable for children.

An extremely melodious song; I’d suggest skipping the first 1 minute altogether though. It doesn’t really begin until then.

Maula mere maula – Song lyrics and translation

Maula mere, maula mere maula mere, maula mere
aankhein teri, kitni haseen
ke inka aashiq, mein ban gaya hoon
mujhako basa le, iname tu

ishq hai
maula mere, maula mere maula mere, maula mere
ke inka aashiq, mein ban gaya hoon
mujhako basa le, iname tu
mujhase yeh har ghadi, mera dil kahe
tum hi ho usaki aarzoo
mujhase yeh har ghadi, mere lab kahe
teri hi ho sab guftagoo
baatein teri itni haseen, main yaad inko jab karta hoon
phoolon si aaye, khushaboo

rakh loon chhupa ke main kahin tujhako
saaya bhi tera na main doon
rakh loon bana ke kahin ghar, main tujhe
saath tere, main hi rahoon
zulfen teri, itni ghani
dekh ke inako, yeh sochata hoon
saaye me, inake main jiyoon

ishq hai
maula mere, maula mere maula mere, maula mere
mera dil yahi bola, mera dil yahi bola,
yaara raaj yeh usane hai mujh par khola
ki hai ishq mohabbat, jiske dil mein
usko pasand karta hai maulaa

English Translation
My Lord, my God... x10
Your eyes....
your eyes, they're just so beautiful,
that their {madman}lover, I have become.
Place me in them.

Love is....... my Lord, my God
Love is....... my Lord, my God... x10

...that I have become their lover.
Place me within these eyes.
Every moment, my heart says to me
you only are its desire.
Every moment, my lips say to me
every conversation is about you only.
Your conversations are so beautiful that when I remember them
they smell like fragrant flowers.
I want to hide and keep you somewhere.
I will not even give away your shadow.
I will keep you in a home that I'll build.
and live with you only.
{this verse may seem psychotic 😉 }
Your tresses, they're so dense.
I see them and think
I wish to live under their shade.

Love is....... my Lord, my God
Love is....... my Lord, my God... x10
My Lord, my God...
My heart has says just this....
My heart has divulged this secret that...
the one whose heart is filled with love,
God likes/prefers him.

    Let’s Remember Always That The Good Cop Jesus Forgives the
    Enemy And Loves That Enemy As Loving Self and God All That the
    Good Cop Jesus Loves as Far As Turning the Other Cheek Forgiving

    All Injury Done to Him And When Jesus Hangs on the Cross According
    To the Story Still Jesus Forgives the Thief Beside Him And Invites him
    Into Eternal Love Then Always Now Even if the Last Moment Before
    Death on A Cross And When Jesus is Suffering Jesus Asks God

    Why Has God Forsaken Him 3 Times Yet in that Darkness
    Jesus Empties Himself of Love And Comes to Do the

    Greatest Act of Love of All Forgiving God
    For the Darkness That Gives Rise to LiGHT

    Paul’s Chapter 13: Letters for Corinthians

    The Way of Love

    13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

    4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

    8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

    13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

    Paul’s Chapter 5: These Letters to the Corinthians Came First Before Paul Evolved
    In Love to Make God All About Love However Paul’s Definition of Love is Far From
    Perfect As He Separates The Sinner From the Saint And Discards Them as Chaff

    From the Wheat Before In Chapter 5, In Other Words He Forgets the Most Important
    Part of Love the Part That Is Never Exclusive And Always Forgives of Course too
    Including Katrina’s Mother Whose Husband Went Out to Sea And She Strayed
    With A Pacific Islander Sailor Off A Ship In Liberty of Partying And Then An

    Angel Was Born to these SoulSoils of Earth One Who Would Retain Her
    Beauty of Love Well Into Her 50’s And It’s True Paul also Disrespects
    Homosexual Oriented Folks too in Some of His Other Writings Where

    Science Shows That Homosexuals Are Nature’s Response to
    Population Pressures Where Naturally More Cooperative
    Humans Are Born Without A Desire to Reproduce

    Which Means They Are That Different Relative
    Who Supports Folks Around them in Every

    Way No Different Still than an Elton John
    Song That has Inspired More Procreation
    Of Children From Beautiful

    Romantic Songs

    Than Abraham Could Count
    in the Stars of the Night Sky Bright…
    i’ll Leave a Ted Talk That Explains it in
    A Way That Only A Soulless Unforgiving
    Human of Love Could See in Any Different Way…

    1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? 3 For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. 4 So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, 5 hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

    6 Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? 7 Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch–as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

    9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people– 10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

    12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. ‘Expel the wicked person from among you.’

    In Short If Paul Lived Today All 4 Foot 9 or So And Crippled As Some Say He Lived
    As A Small Man Likely Involuntarily Celibate As Well Not Understanding What
    Those Who Are More Reproductively Inclined Face in the Pressures of

    Nature That Way
    As Of Course he
    Recommended
    Folks Didn’t Get
    Married And Have
    Sexual Relationships
    Which of Course is Against
    Nature and Out of Order That
    Leads to Some of the Problems We See
    Among the Up to 58 Percent of Catholic
    Priests Assessed As Homosexual’s Within the Church…

    For It’s True When Nature Is Repressed Life Becomes Deviant
    From ‘the Norm’ and in this Case Homosexuality Freely Expressed

    Is Indeed the Order of ‘Normal Nature’ When Population Pressures Do

    Come to Exist…

    So True These Folks Are Less Inclined To Reproduce and More Inclined to
    Play Priestly Roles And Where They Get into Trouble is when they Repress

    Their Free Sexual
    Nature As
    Such and
    All Kind of
    Deviations from
    ‘The Norm’ Sprout
    Out From Ignorance
    of Being Who They Truly Are….
