Alone
 
Lonely vs Alone

Loneliness is a modern day reality
Slow strangulation, with us the casualty

But with expectations reduced, no more forlorn
Let us substitute the word lonely with alone

Lonely is externalised, seeking, egocentric
Alone is internalised, detached, divine centric

Diametrically opposite in orientation
Divine love neither judges nor shows hesitation

Pouring out its fragrance for one & all alike, glowing
Unexpectant of reciprocation, always free flowing

So enjoy a coffee with a friend or without
Mindful always of the wayside beggars voiceless shout

Life is beautiful, if we shift the fulcrum to our centre
The door to the divine opens within, just enter!

Unseeking Seeker 22-10-2018 01:39 AM

Alone we experience our Pain

Child stumbles, nose bleeds
Child’s cry, his mother heeds
She frets & fusses, wipes the stain
She is concerned but cannot feel his pain
For each must live his life alone in solitude
Though friends may hold hands to build fortitude
But his life experiences are for him & for him alone
Lived, felt, assimilated, etched upon his soul in stone

As life ebbs away slowly, the near & dear gather around
Bones squeezed within, breathing constrained, mind unsound
Through the pain he feels the tender touch of empathetic hands
Yet none knows the pain he feels within where he makes a lone last stand
Such is the truth of the Lone Ranger
Fact over fiction is far more stranger
Attachments, fears & desires slowly extinguish
In aloneness he embraces his own pain & anguish

And there is this other pain, far, far deeper than the physical
More poignant, piercing & lasting than even the emotional
It is what he experiences in his final moments ... remorse
Arising from thoughts, words & deeds lived, egoistic & coarse
As he replays before his consciousness his dispersal of love & pain
Love divine-centric and the tears he gave others, his own self-serving stain
A stain he must erase himself, thereby removing his egoistic feral defect
Alone he must face his karma, the immutable law of cause & effect

Unseeking Seeker 22-10-2018 01:41 AM

In aloneness we embrace the divine

We may shout it from the rooftops but no one will understand
The ecstasy within we feel, when in still-aloneness, we are divine-entwined
An ineffable joy within, inexpressible, expansive, soul uplifting, grand
It is in aloneness that our body, soul & spirit are Universe aligned

Unseeking Seeker 23-10-2018 01:56 AM

Alone in our stillness

Only in our aloneness
And doerless completeness
In a mode of staid stillness
We access Universe connectedness
We are One with the Oneness
Alone in our stillness

Unseeking Seeker 23-10-2018 02:03 AM

Lovers

Lovers! Intimately close, twin souls
Yet each deep within, each is alone
Alone at the core where their lover can never reach
For the auric blueprint of each of us is unique

Alone each of us must walk the inner path to ascension
Lover helps by holding our hand through life’s outer tensions
Yet alone we were born & alone we will die
In our aloneness too, we must also reach for the stars in the sky

Unseeking Seeker 23-10-2018 02:55 AM

Alone & Joyful

Alone?
Yes. I mean no!
How else than alone, would I have known?
Oneness with centre in motion, periphery slow!

In aloneness, fulcrum shift perceives
The source, the harbinger of inner wellness
Images of the ego but deceive
No mirror, so no reflection, in our alone-stillness

What is it then, the rippleless essence?
It is here, within, ineffable joy, beyond delineation
Not one with, but rather The-aloneness-presence
Self-cognised, when we abandon sensory limitations

Unseeking Seeker 24-10-2018 01:55 AM

Boredom?

The genesis of boredom, discontent & melancholy lies in loneliness
Contrasted to the joy of being alive here & now in our vibrant aloneness
Just as indifference or self-serving egoism is consciousness contracting
While detachment, desirelessness, Universe connecting love, expanding ...

Extrapolating from these consciousness contracting vs expanding examples
We may contemplate upon our inner orientation from other samples
Our reflex instincts; just two lists: one giving, the other seeking more
One narrowing, the other expanding our consciousness at the core

As and when our attention is externalised, anchored in egoistic seeking
The delusional impossibility of making permanent the impermanent leaves us despondent, lonesome & weeping
Which is the root cause of our needless self-inflicted suffering ...
Shifting the fulcrum of our consciousness inwards, divine-entwined is fulfilling, empowering & enlightening

Boredom? What is that?
In being to become, I AM always That!
Choosing light over darkness, a persona winsome
Discarding vicarious knowledge for deep inner wisdom

We can choose to effortlessly reshape ourselves as we choose in our stillness
A self-help divine-assisted program we may execute in our joyous aloneness
Inner cleansing, lightening egoistic baggage, treading gently on the earth
Effusing unconditional love, dispersing the fragrance divine unendingly in joyous mirth

Unseeking Seeker 25-10-2018 09:36 AM

Aloneness but not alone

In the sanctum of aloneness
Within meditational stillness
Poised, aware, alert
We sense a spurt
Within ... a movement
A divine enablement
Movement allowing recognition
Stillness ... assimilation
Within our aloneness
Resistancelessness be-ness
Divine love entwined
Transforming as empathetic & kind
From the gross ego untied
We stand not alone but unified
With the Universe, in loving-oneness
In aloneness, stillness-timeless

Unseeking Seeker 26-10-2018 06:49 AM

Alone we awaken

Be the fellow mans egoistic delusion
His state of inner conflict & confusion
Be self-inflicted
Our helplessness is reflected
By our inability to correct his direction
We just watch in observational contemplation
In aloneness of our core consciousness
Loving yet powerless to assist in our stillness
Such is the dilemma
Akin to watching the cinema
Images will unfold as ordained
We are not, so who is pained?
The river must run its course
Over terrain both smooth & coarse
In its aloneness
Alive be-ness
As do we, alone yet entwined
With the current divine
In acceptance & trust
Ascending to love from lust

In aloneness

Unseeking Seeker 28-10-2018 03:27 PM

Alone the sun emits life giving light
Even though the earth turns its back
It minds not its unseemly slight
For it is the light! Nothing does it lack!

Unseeking Seeker 30-10-2018 04:23 AM

Aloneness yes but never-ever alone
For once the ego cuckoo has flown
We are not and yet we are, The presence
In, as & one, with the Divine essence

Unseeking Seeker 04-11-2018 03:22 AM

Love

Love is unseeking
Uncalculating
Nonjudgingly embracing
Always outpouring
It’s being the becoming
Divine fragrance dispersing
A dance unending

In aloneness

. Ooooh bordom! I often feel bordom. Lonelyness, that as well, your not the only one. Like your alone on a little island with nothing but you to depend on. It can be a empty feeling at first. But when that emptyness get filled with your own confidence and strength, nothing is more valuable! With nothingness you have everything to gain.

Loneliness disabling, leads to melancholy, boredom

Aloneness enabling, meditational, acccess to the divine kingdom

Diametrically opposite ends of the spectrum

One contracted in anxiety, the other persona winsome

Unseeking Seeker 05-11-2018 06:12 AM

Vibrations

The vibrations of varied thought-emotion
Are & yet are not because their proportion
Their final reception
Depends upon our selection

Energy frequency filtration
By alchemical sublimation
In our nonjudgmental perception
Embraces each energy influx in exaltation

In silent aloneness

Unseeking Seeker 06-11-2018 09:12 AM

A new dimension

We in uncharted waters sail
Beyond the five sense veil
New dimensions, new realities
And never before seen entities

Nonjudgmental observation
No conditioned perception
Renders harmless the playful
While embracing the prayerful

Our orientation of openness
One with the absolute oneness
Enables seamless navigation
Without coloured imagination

In unhurried aloneness

Unseeking Seeker 07-11-2018 11:06 AM

Inspired by lyrics of the ‘Stopping by Woods’ poem by Robert Frost:

Part-1 : Ignorance

The wounds are ugly dark & deep
Love from them has started to seep
Alone in the void within I go to sleep

Part-2 : Illumination

The vibrations of divine love percolate way down deep
Divine joy overflows from within as the Universe does reap
Am entwined with the oneness through both waking & sleep

Unseeking Seeker 08-11-2018 02:42 AM

Alone we connect

The old man
With elan
In the balcony
Cloudy or sunny
Connects with the tree
His daily entree
His thought
We know not
But we see the sign
His face does shine
In autumn or spring
His inner zing
At any time
Birds he mimes
And feeds with seeds
Freeing plants of weeds
Though his profile is low
We sense he knows
Way he celebrates life
Without children or wife
In aloneness joyful
Persona wonderful
Face alive & aglow
One with the divine flow

Unseeking Seeker 09-11-2018 09:39 AM

Serpent of desire

Rearing the baby python snake
With steadfast resolve that wouldn’t shake
Bemused by its enormous strength & stature
Even while being consumed, he felt like it’s creator!

Unseeking Seeker 10-11-2018 03:10 AM

Humility

Gifts granted ...
By the Universe
Love embrace
In our aloneness
The enablements ...
Expanding
By choiceless choice
Empower
By equilibrium shift
Which is when ...
Our humility
Determines stability
A simple daily check
Is our divine-connect
In aloneness

Unseeking Seeker 12-11-2018 01:33 AM

Alone walked each Buddha

The ineffable, ecstatic, illuminating surge within
A distinct experience of consciousness uplift
Reality unknown to eristic theoreticians sanguine
Discussions with the ignoramus leading to conflict

In aloneness they trustingly walk the pathless path in silence
The Universe harvesting their unique consciousness fertile
Enableabilities bestowed are humbly received by them in stillness
Sharing revelations arises from their caring but is invariably futile

Yet they cannot hold back and so they do speak
A reflex response of their divine love enablement
Offering other fellow seekers an inspirational sneak peek
Wishing all well & recognising equality for all beings sentient

In their vibrant aloneness

Unseeking Seeker 13-11-2018 02:19 AM

The imperceptible shift

In aloneness
Stillness & aloneness
Silence
Pristine non-self silence
The essence of awareness
Unattached to form
To consequence
Just is
Unseeking
For it is, as it is
Complete
Whole
And well
The core, the pivot
Yet automatically shifts
Ever so slightly
Enabling awakened connect
With the Universe
Which always was
Which always is
A point in space
Looking at another
Interchange
Even though
Both were same
Both are same
And so remain
Vibrating
In tandem
Ad infinitum

Healing

Influx
Outflux
Of divine energy
With which in synergy
And as endowed
A mere conduit of That flow ...
Deployed
Employed
For healing
Unpeeling
Negativity, injury, disease
Doable, with ease
By the Universe
Into which immerse
The healing touch of thought
Born of divine love begot
Appeals for healing & surrenders ...
The prayer, in childlike wonder
As a non-doer
Universe alone being the mover
If optimal for that soul
Healing is efficacious & total
However if the Universe declines
The healer, in humility also resigns
Having never as ego sought; egolessly still
Vibrations always in sync with the divine will
As such, either way, healed or not, accepting
The outcome as may be, magically unfolding

In doerless aloneness

Unseeking Seeker 16-11-2018 01:53 AM

The creator!

Within familiar patterns
Narrow grooves
Predictable trajectories
Of thought
Which repeat
And thereby amplify
Exaggerate
The dream, the illusion
And as illusion expands
The resultant delusion
Our consciousness contracts
Making it smaller
And smaller
Imprisoned
Caged
Enslaved
By thought

One day
Any day
Today
Now!
We choose
To examine
To observe
To contemplate
In aloneness
The source of thought
Going in deep
Deeper
Unendingly
To the root
And are astonished
Surprised
To see
Mirrorlessly
That we ourselves
Are the creator
The maker
The preserver
And now, the destroyer
Of the bubble
Of ignorance

In aloneness
We see
If we choose
To see

The roadmap

The enigma imaginary
Of self created imagery
The solution
Lies in dissolution
Fearlessly, absolutely
Totally, completely
Of the conscious mind
Which spirals & rewinds
Non self presence
In the now, in innocence
Offers instant divine connect
Wherein we resurrect
Automatically
In singular universality

In aloneness

Consciousness correction

Gloom abounds
Sleep patterns change
Interactions reduce
Wealth depletes
Friends apathetic
The noose tightens
Fear of uncertainty
Contracts
Egoic consciousness

Looking at it
Humorously
The events
Are just events
Cyclic, transient
When did they
Gain access within
And grown to proportions
Frankensteinian?

The ebb & flow
Of shifting tides
The ups & downs
Of the Ferris wheel
The movement
Is what enables
Acceptance & Assimilation
In joyous gratitude
Of life experience

In aloneness

Content with Present moment Orientation?

The gateway of our experience
At which point thought rests
Handing over the baton of awareness
To emotion
The type of experience we embrace
Depends upon the frequency ...
Of the thought which positions
Our consciousness
To draw from the Universe
The emotion
Correspondent to the frequency of thought
Which positioned us there

And therefore
Present moment orientation
Though a prerequisite
To enable meditational engagement
Would offer divine connect
Only if ...
The frequency of thought
Before it first peaks and then rests
Is closer to ...
Nearer to ...
The frequency of ...
The subtle domain

Each continuum of time
Wherein we experience
Is devoid of fragmented thought
For the duration
We are captive therein
Because ...
We are so structured
To be able to cognise
At any given moment
Only one thought
Or experience one emotion
Correspondent to that thought

Every experience continuum ...
Is not meditation
Although every experience continuum ...
Is present moment oriented
It may be ...
Tamas - escapism
Or Rajas - desire
Or Satva - purity
Or a combination
Of these Gunas
Which represent a bandwidth
Of our present endowment

To experience
What we choose
To experience

In aloneness

The slow rhythm

First, the meditational taste
Bringing about haste
Of egoic origin
Seeking magnification

Then, the rippleless calm
The staid acceptance balm
Embraced, imbibed, assimilated
Sense of egoic urgency decimated

Spirit, soul, ego ...
Are labels & thoughts we forgo
Words, symbols, whose delineation ...
Is subject to perceptional interpretation

The acceptance, the allowing
Orientation of one, free flowing
Unseeking & unexpectant
Ego reduced if not decadent

Divine connect permanence
Is, for as long as is, our innocence
Our slow rhythm is ecstatically alive & aglow
In sync with the pulsations of the divine flow

This Universal oneness
In a state of be-ness
Divine-entwined closeness
Cognised in aloneness

Epilogue:

No proof available, so none seers offer
Each consciousness will one day flower
In a manner & at a time
As ordained by the divine sublime

The implants

It is in aloneness
Within
In a space within
Deep within
Possibly inaccessible ...
To any other
Which of course is ...
An oxymoron since ...
There is no other
All being one
Yet
In as ordained
Within momentary duality
Individualised as self
As consciousness
Transitioning to awareness
To unity
In an awakened state
Is for the moment unconscious
Asleep
And so, as ordained
In order to awaken
To awareness
In aloneness
Deep within
The essence of oneness
Is embraced
Imbibed
Assimilated
Along pathways
Unanticipated
By the self
In aloneness

There being no way
Save the choiceless choice
Of so choosing
By the self
As non-self
To awaken
And transition
To awareness
To oneness
The Universe
Or singular awareness
Which the unconscious self
Also is
Already attained
But unaware
And so
The Universe
Implants
Bestows
The single eye
In synchronicity
With several other implants
Energised
To enable the already awakened
But unaware
Self
Actually non-self
To awaken in a manner
Of knowing the awakening
In aloneness

You know, I receive spiritual poetry by email...I glance at any from the 20th c...and delete it.
I read mostly those from before the 15th c...
those similar to the wisdom and direct exp of Rumi, Hafiz, Kabir, and Christian Mystics types.
And now there is yours.

Oh! Iíve not read them but I guess that the pattern of unfolding being same for all, albeit with colourations and variations unique to each, the expressions through language would tend to be similar though worded in accordance with the style of writing of each... my guess is many may just keep silent! :smile:

Growth orientation

Growth
Whose?
Yet movement
Being life
And stagnation
Death
It is in movement
That we are alive
The movement may be
Upwards
Downwards
Or sideways
As related to
Frequency bands
Of thought
Or energy
Culminating in
Emotion, experience
Correspondent to thought
Upwards being growth
Downwards decline
An sideways ...
Illusionary variety in stagnation
Or egoic delusion
So, accepting
That the inclination
Innate to our consciousness
Is to ascend
Signals an acceptance
That the Universe
Of which we are a part
Actually whole
(Self-revealed)
Is ascending
As is Mother Earth
Whose frequency
Is rising
Felt
And even sceptics
Scientists
Have measured
Schumann’s resonance
Rising
And so, Earth
As it ascends
Along with it
So do we
In oneness
Yet
The degree of ascension
Is determined by
Our free will
To choose
To resonate
Transcend
To so ascend
In aloneness

Low quality connect

Within the realm of duality
It is an inevitability
That the duration of our meeting
With each other, is fleeting

We are in outward contact
And do seem to interact
Yet the element of our love connect
Is definitely lacking and suspect

And so, the sad truth
Is that with us coarse & uncouth
Of our superficiality, the cause
Lies in our being self absorbed

Being in a continuum of be-ness
Divine connected in aloneness
Knowing the reality of oneness
Our love for all is limitless

Unseeking Seeker 25-11-2018 11:41 AM

Discontent

The feeling of discontent
We may trace its element
Its root
To our inability to reboot
Consciousness, in sway
Gone momentarily astray
From divine orientation
To egoic frustration
Continuous contemplation
Consciousness correction
Shifts attention within
To anew begin
Effortlessly
Seamlessly
Reconnect to divine sublime
Anytime
In the blink of an eye
By discarding the ‘I’

Contraction by Calculation

The shocking realisation
That attempted delineation
Bisection
By memory limited imagination
Of the moment
Joyously poignant
Potent
Being an indivisible element
Found me as a dead man walking
Owing to my own ego stalking
Balking
From here & now awakening

Shock self-realised ... in aloneness

Oneness

Aloneness
Be-ness
Stillness
Synonyms?
No quite ...
Aloneness is quietude
Be-ness is dissolution
Stillness is presence
And yet
When our orientation ...
Is thus conjoined
There is completeness
Oneness
