I have spoken
Just a few words
But much remains unsaid
For I myself cannot speak
What is in my 'Heart'
And reveal to you my deeper secrets
Each poem reveals
a fresh approach indeed
Each is complete
though it's part of the Whole
Each poem arises
from an Awakening
To lift the veils
between You, Mind, and Self
So you too can make
contact with your Self
Even if you read the poems casually
An occasional thought
is sure to slip through your defenses
The words will spiral it's way into your heart
And break down barriers to Divine
But if you read them with Awareness
You let Grace Act
that brings serendipity in your Life
Read them in your leisure moments
Let the words dwell in your heart
Give it time to work on your subconscious
Unexpectedly they'll blossom and spread its perfume
You will be surprised to see
Just when you need it
Revelations comes to you quite unexpectedly
Bringing you an insight and inner healing
Each step leads to another step
So you too can discover 'that'
Which is beyond the 'word knowledge'
As you take each step
Simply 'surrender' and be with your 'Guru'
If you still have some doubts, then realize
the 'believer' is also the 'doubter'
To unravel the Truth of 'Life'
Be Aware and Alert of human endowments
-- Your Self-Awareness
-- Your Conscience
-- Your Independent Will and Free Choice
-- Your Creativity
Make full use of them
Then only 'Life' shall be free from life
Why do you want to believe simply in a 'god'
That's nice, benevolent, and takes care of you?
Do you have the courage to believe in 'god'
That's nice, benevolent, and takes care of you
* Who want's you to attain 'His Wisdom'
* Who want's you to attain 'His Power'
* Who want's you to attain 'His Vision'
* Who want's you to attain 'His Position'
* Who want's you to attain 'His Identity'
On the path of the Pilgrimage to Self
What 'Purushartha' is needed?
* Just be Aware of your self
Use your own Awareness
To evaluate and See
-- Do you let new insights slip away
-- Do you let new understanding die by In-Action?
-- Do you drag yourself to move in a new direction?
-- Do you lack the will to move in the direction
you have been avoiding?
Can you hear the whispers
of your own breath?
Can you see the movements
of your own thoughts?
... ... ... You do not see?
... ... ... You do not hear?
But ... .. it's all right
Know that through the dense mist
dawns a clear bright day
So shall the clouds
that veils your 'eyes' and 'ears'
Are bound to be blown away one day
by the winds of 'Right Knowledge'
And on that beautiful clear day
You too shall see
and the purpose of all that exists
If my silence hides me from you
I shall seek your understanding
Through the same words you now read
And as these words become
more kin to your own thoughts
The 'Truth' shall reveal itself to you
Then you too will 'Know'
That which 'My Guru' said
"There is No Creation
There is No Destruction
There is No Destiny
There is No Free Will
All there is, Is the Silence"
Farewell ... ... to all
Let the Grace be with all
We have come together and taken
The Pilgrimage to Self
We have met in a 'dream'
But Now the sleep has gone
Our 'dream' is over
But is there 'dawn'?
Together we walked
Now we must part
But if we ever meet
in the world of thoughts
We shall share again our experiences
For I Know
Awareness (Self) is before the Experience
Awareness (Self) is in the Experience
Awareness (Self) is after the Experience
Truth with a big T means
-- "the truth about you"
So make sure that each time you read
You single-mindedly search
For a deeper understanding of yourself.
Again and again
Together we shall go
On the Pilgrimage to Self
Until one day
You too will drink
From the Same river of Silence
Then your heart shall sing
The sonnet that come effortlessly
... ... and then
you may ... ...
... ... ... continue this poem!
Om shanti, shanti, shanti!!
