Embrace

When you realise your oneness with God, you become whole

Onesky

 

When you start to sense

The embrace of the One

There is no ‘when’

For always it is now

There is no ‘where’

Because everywhere is here

Time is not tense

For peace is the rule

Desire’s darts do not

Drill holes in your being

And you are whole-

Again.

Kurukshetra

His legs caught

In the quicksand

Of desire,

His mind lost

In the splendors

Of the spirit,

He is the field

Of eternal struggle;

The Light and the darkness

Waging an everlasting battle

For his soul.

Desire, weakened,

Does not let him go yet,

Spirit, not fully awakened,

Cannot set him free.

He speaks like a saint,

Yet is snared by desire;

Aims for the heavens,

Can’t get out of the mud.

He is the modern Kurukshetra,

The animal man

With a nascent Divinity.

Sound effects

The collective mind

Is now conditioned by complexity.

Simplicity went out

Centuries ago.

The sound of horse steps

Have been replaced

By the screeching of tires

Or the whistle of the locomotive.

The pounding of the pestle

Has given way to the

Screeching of the mixer blender.

Sound world now

Is a structured chaos,

Speed clashing with

Many toned harshness.

Harmony has been demonetized.

Poetry now speaks-

Through broken edges-

It burrs cutting through

Your mind’s skin

And drawing blood.

Words now have to

Spew acid fumes

That burn your senses.

Edgy rules;

The rest – is edged out

An app for that

an app can solve every problem..can it?

Do you have an app

To quell the thousand thoughts

Thronging on my mind’s shores?

To taser the countless desires

Threatening to burn me up?

To vaporize the numberless fears

That are crippling me with

Their vice like grip?

Do you have an app for that?

Life

A look at the origin and meaning of life

Why does a lie

Engulf this life?

Why does this life

Conceal an if?

Is life just an entry

In God’s mystic file?

An evil snake, a vile lie,

A forbidden fruit-

Was this the fault line

On which life rose?

Is life a lie

Struggling through eons

Fulfilling itself and

Forever joyless

Seeking a truth

It does not even know?

Or is it just a failure

An impotent darkness

Trying forever

To hide the effulgent Light?

At the heart of this life

Is a mighty if .

Two are the branches

That rise from its fork

 

You can choose virtue or

You can choose vice

You can choose the false or

You can choose the truth

 

If you choose to walk

On the path of the false

Maya will be life for

Ages more to come

 

If you choose right and

And follow the Light

An embalming peace

Shall engulf thy soul

Vast grow thy soul

Vaster than the universe

Ego shall be dissolved

Dissolved the ‘I’ in life

Transformed by thy choice

Life shall be the triune glory

Light, Felicity and Eternity

Circe

the credit card ,illusion of unlimited spending power, temptation.

 

 

Your glowing looks

And slender form

Captivated me- it was

Love at first sight.

When I hold you

In my hands

The world seems small to me.

You make me

Feel like a king

And rule my heart

Like a queen.

You make me live

Beyond my means

And lead me

To the gates of hell.

And yet I cant

Say no to you.

You hold me tight

With your magnetic charm.

You are the circe

Of the modern world.

O credit card,

Get away from me!

Ego

The way of the human ego and how mind encourages it…

Insignificant, tiny ego 

Casts large shadows 

On mind’s walls.

Sizing itself up

With its own shadows 

It gloats with pride. 

Intelligence, feeble,

Clouded by ignorance,

Fosters this illusion

And furthers its growth.

One day the dawn of wisdom

Shall burst upon the mind

And its sun rays 

Light up the mind’s skies 

In a fire-gold blaze;

Then those

Misleading shadows 

will be gone. 

And the ego,

Deflated,

Conquered,

Be dissolved 

In an epiphany 

Of light
