This spiritual poetry attempts to capture the undying presence of love in all of its forms. Let your soul be deeply touched by the Rumi-like words of a lover drunk with passion for the truth. Here is a sample poem from the book:

Your hand is always in mine
your whispered endearments are my constant companion
you have never turned your face from me
no matter how many times I have turned from you

now I vow undying love
I meet you in the secret places I used to hide from you in
I hold you with tenderness I used to reserve for my pain
I would give you my life and my breath in an instant

for you are my true love
the one with no form
the one who has never been anywhere, but right here
in the singing of my heart

“I first picked up this gem of a book about a decade ago, around the time I was discovering Nirmala and his teachings in the non-dual tradition. Here Nirmala shares his beautiful experiences of Awakening through his own unique heartfelt poems. Enlightened spiritual poetry not unlike other mystical offerings like Rumi, the Songs of Kabir or Lao Tzu's sayings. I continue to find fresh inspiration whenever I open these pages, and with an open heart dare to let myself be touched.” –Akash, BC

“At a meditation retreat I was leading at Harbin Hot Springs, a participant handed me your free book of spiritual poetry, Gifts with No Giver. From the moment I opened it, my heart soared into the realms of Silence that your words invited. Tears of truth touched my soul. I have so wanted to savor each poem that I have been reading only one every few days. I love squeezing the juice out of each poem! Thank you for the depths that you have traveled inside yourself that allows your words to thrust me inward." –Peter Rengel, Retreat Leader and author of Living Life in Love and Seeds of Light

“If you are looking for a book of spiritual poetry to help light your spiritual path, this book will be a good choice. The subtitle of the book, A Love Affair with Truth, describes well the theme of this collection of spiritual poems. Nirmala's depth of insight is well represented.”  -Gloria Achterberg

"I have experienced so much love and joy reading these spiritual poems. I don't read them quickly; I take my time to savor and feel their depth. I'll find a favorite, and then another. There is so much love and truth in them. I will cherish this book forever." - Nancy R.

"So much like a modern day Rumi. I understand most of Rumi but sometimes have to be in a meditative mood in order to get it. Not so with this very lovely clearly written piece of work . Thank you so much for the opportunity. I have already mentioned this free spiritual poetry ebook to one of the other writers in my Visionary poets class." - Amazon customer

"I love this book. It is sitting beside my meditation chair and is often what I choose to use as a springboard for my meditation. I read a page and then use the gems offered in my meditations." - Amazon customer

    Why fear this moment
    when no thoughts come
    at last I lie naked
    in the arms of experience

    why fear this moment
    when no words come
    at last I find rest
    in the lap of silence

    why fear this moment
    when love finds itself alone
    at last I am embraced
    by infinity itself

    why fear this moment
    when judgment falls away
    at last my defenses
    fail to keep intimacy at bay

    why fear this moment
    when hope is lost
    at last my foolish dreams
    are surrendered to perfection

    nothing seen is wasted
    the sight of every eye
    increases the range of vision
    of that which sees

    every sight is a gem
    of pure perfection
    in the inner eyes
    of that which sees

    each viewpoint
    lives on forever
    nothing can die
    within that which sees

    look deeply into any eye
    beyond your reflection
    come face to face
    with that which sees

    abandon appearance
    let go of pretense
    you are naked and exposed
    before that which sees

    do not turn away your gaze
    no need to hide
    only love shines in the eyes
    of that which sees

    The past is long gone
    from here
    there is no way back
    how could there be

    the present is over too quickly
    for feeble desires
    to have any effect
    except to hide peace

    the future races ahead
    forever out of reach
    of dreamy wishes
    and useless plans

    and yet when I rest
    in the endless now
    every need is satisfied
    in ways never imagined

    I have fallen in love with truth
    I only want to be with her
    I can not stand to be apart
    I would gladly go to the ends of the earth
    or I would never again move from this spot
    just to be sure to inhale her fragrant perfume
    with my dying breath

    I have fallen in love with truth
    her every wish my command
    I simply must obey
    for she has captured my soul
    and taken complete control
    of even my innermost thoughts
    freeing me to find repose
    in her unadorned splendor

    I have fallen in love with truth
    with exquisite tenderness she shows me
    the perfection in my every flaw
    no need for pretense
    for she knows everything about me
    and yet takes me in her arms
    with complete abandon
    until only she remains
