YOU AND I

                                                                         YOU AND I

 

You and I,

Are same, yet different

We are waves of the same ocean

When we rise, we differ

If not, we are non-dual

I decided to differ, by accepting a form

If not, who identifies me

Nor you or I differ,

But we chose to differ

Many more like you and I,

Chose to differ

In reality,

They are not,

They think they are

And this causes the difference

 

 

 

 

THE ETERNAL LIGHT

                                                                                  THE ETERNAL LIGHT

 

Eternal light –

When seen through a glass,

You appear as the same

When seen through a prism,

You appear as many

You never change,

But the medium ever changes

Unable to grasp,

We conclude you as many

Devoid of ignorance,

When viewed through knowledge

You are seen exactly as you are –

Unable to touch and feel,

Still, in divine glory.

 

 

 

I AM NOT ALONE

                                                                                         I AM NOT ALONE

 

I am not alone –

Though I appear to be

I am supported by That,

And surrounded by That

That, no one can see

Where will one search,

When he is on That

Though not realized

It always exists –

Beyond sight, mind and time

When I close like tortoise

I can feel That

When I open up,

I forget That

How unique it would have been,

If I always remember That

Then, I will be known as

JIVANMUKTA

 

 

 

THAT ALONE EXISTS

                                                                           THAT ALONE EXISTS

If That alone exists,

Then who am I?

If That is indivisible,

Then how can I be a part of That?

If That is non-dual and infinite,

Then how can I be another?

If That is pure,

Then how can I be impure?

If That is unchanging,

Then how can I change?

If That is all-pervading,

Again – who am I?

Maya deludes me –

Am I – THAT

 

 

 

A VALUABLE THOUGHT

                                                                     A VALUABLE THOUGHT

He travels on his own path,

Yet, he is ignorant of that

Karma relates him to others,

And separates him too

When everything was about to happen

Time washed it off,

Like the waves taking away the mud houses

He is deluded and torn apart,

By time, karma and guna

Whatever it be – Gain or Loss,

No one is responsible,

But he is ignorant to accept it

He suffered and learned the way out,

But the situation changed –

And never to return again

His learning is not a waste,

It is a treasure – The Wisdom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KEEP MOVING

                                                                                     KEEP MOVING

 

Moving –

Always a great exercise

For the body and mind

Move the body,

Else it stagnate the mind

Move the mind,

Else you cannot explore

Move the ideas,

Else you cannot progress

Move the failures,

Else you cannot succeed

Move the life itself,

Else you become old

Never remain idle,

It makes the intellect unworthy

Only one thing cannot be changed,

That is change itself

Do not resist it,

You will be left alone.
