Would you like to take a pilgrimage to Self?
If yes, then just walk together
holding the hand of our guru -- the Awareness
Throughout our journey 'Keep in mind'
That the words 'I,' 'my,' 'me'
represent our guru and not a person
As we begin our journey, remember
These words are not mine (the 'person')
but, directly from our guru
The 'words' are never the 'Actual'
So Understanding is Now or Never
This 'Samwad' is to prepare your mind
Before we begin our journey
As we journey step by step
Search earnestly for simple Truths
In these silent words, you too can Discover
Meaning after Meaning
Like multiple reflections in two parallel mirrors
This Attempt is, to 'Awaken' you
And Not to Teach You
Be aware, avoid 'Understanding' the Word-Play
Mentally and Literally
Use your own Intuitive Sense
To get More than What You Read
Be a silent observer
And observe the Phenomenal-Interplay
The Truth is then Revealed
Through inner-focus on your-self
The words are aimed to cleanse you
Of all your illusions, delusions
and psychological confusion
So be aware and face the challenge
When the words hurt or upset you
Your own wrong perception
stops you from seeing the Truth
You now ignorantly see and feel in them
Lack of Compassion
When the surgeon operates
Will you blame the surgeon
for causing you the pain?
Don't you see his kindness
while you experience pain?
The pain of the blow is due to ignorance
How can the blows hurt
when they are not aimed at You?
The blows are to break all Chains that Bind you
It's your existing thoughts that Chain you
Depriving you of your freedom
Agreeing or disagreeing is only an idea
But the Real Essence is
'Understanding' through Awareness
That changes your Perception
I make No-claim
to make you Understand your-Self
You must Provoke yourself
to take the pilgrimage to Self
Why judge or label anyone
from what appears to be?
Your feelings come from the 'past' (memory)
that is continuously at-work
It's the 'past' that makes you insensitive
to the experience of the 'Present'
Learn to observe yourself factually
While we are in relationship
If there is no change
in your own Perception
Of what value is our relationship?
If experiencing bliss and equanimity
Remains an unknown secret for you
What will you have gained from 'me'?
As you read
Know that these expressions in words
Took forms from source 'unknown'
And though they carry
a Mark of my Individualism
There's no Attachment
nor has it any significance
It's there simply to help you Link
Outer expressions of the inner experiencing
Make a beginning Now
to Unfold your own Self
You too can take this journey
to discover the bliss in your Self
These expressions in words
may be a Mystical-Nonsense
And you too may ask
What is the use and purpose
of all this Mumbo-Jumbo?
'I' have no Purpose
Other than what Life Brings
I simply wish, you too may find
How to Live Life Happily
Life free from all Complications
Life free from all Entanglements
Know that it's
through Doubt only
You too can Reach
the state of Certainty
In these few poems are hidden
Compressed secrets of my own experiences
Be aware and perceive rightly
Then the words come alive and become meaningful
If not, they are like writings on water
Soon to disappear into meaninglessness!!
