God-men
 

Fake gurus, when questioned, sharply retort,
fearful that their false facade will crumble,
for knowing not truth, their teachings fall short.
Lest their fan following takes a tumble,
they evade debates, being not humble.
Itís about money and exploitation
of fearful souls whoíre in agitation;
thus no different from a bird of prey,
playing havoc with peopleís emotion
with straight face, teaching others how to pray.

Let go of, to get to
 

Dust
to dust,
narrowness
we relinquish,
shrugging off cravings
borne of our lower mind,
simply choosing cessation,
abiding thus in staid silence,
awareness self-aware, imbibing
beauteous hues of the divine current.

Journey without movement, vibrational
surrenders all our doership to love,
resonating with the impulse
of universe as conscience
speaking in soft whispers,
cajoling our soul
to here awake,
that we may
imbibe
bliss.

Yearn to connect
 

Heart
begets
all desires,
more oft than not
searching for objects
in the world of transience,
owing to mindís deep stupor,
which recognises not clear truth,
that that which comes and goes, unreal,
since ego depends on thought to survive.

One day we exit this game of shadows,
knowing true bliss lies within our heart,
thus abide in thought rested calm,
consumed by burning yearning,
to connect with the soul,
aglow in our heart;
bliss magnetism,
that bubbles,
touching
us.

Doublethink beliefs
 

This life

Rituals weíre asked to follow
Seem to separate man from man
Somethingís wrong, it seems so shallow
Sun shines upon all with elan

So we went to temple and mosque
Sikh gurudwara and the church
Favours from God, all in fear ask
Whilst carefree birds, on treetops perch

Each affirms, their faith absolute
ĎMy daddy strongestí is the norm
Fundamentalists resolute
Where lies hermit, bliss rapture warm

The scriptures per say seem alright
For each teaches, true path is love
Narrowness makes us blind to light
If Godís within, why look above

Such being the case, meditate
Celebrating our aliveness
We are still, nodes within gyrate
Entwining with the That oneness

Our prayer then, not a doing
Having chosen to surrender
Moment by moment, blossoming
Our each life breath, is Godís wonder

Our next life

One day this feeble form will die
Liberating soul eternal
Deluded desires, seek the sky
So weíre reborn; Godís miracle

Memory erased, when reborn
The same questions do resurface
Where lies the light that we adorn
Heart seeks to see God, face to face

Of what avail are the scriptures
We are not this here mind-body
Tiring of bondage and strictures
Plunge into the void, when ready

Cessation of thought, is the way
How many times must we be born
Each breath intake, is when we pray
With animal instincts all shorn

As our breath flows here and now

Accepting ourself as we are
We negate not, fear and desire
Nor with thought spirals, do we spar
Choose staid silence, because we tire

Shifting our fulcrum into space
We look inwards at all movement
Futile rat race, blocks divine grace
So sad is heartís discontentment

Ceasing to size, we vaporise
Letting go of our doership
Life goes on, much to our surprise
No need then, for oneupmanship

Shift, external to internal
Requiring but a mindful eye
All we do, is make desires null
No cause then, for our heart to sigh

That that comes and goes, unreal
Our lower mind knows not the truth
We stand still, feeling bliss appeal
Entwining with Godís will forsooth

Boundaries blur, all becomes one
We are the holder of the flame
Luminous like the yonder sun
Recognising life but a game

Bridging the ego abyss
 
Born free and playful, our soul was complete
Reaching out to one and all, joy replete
Illumined was our soul, divine entwined
Dispersing love, nothing to be divined
Giving rather than taking, was the norm
Immersed deep in a bliss magnetised storm
Neophyte humble, prayer on our lips
Grateful for each heartbeat that rapture grips

Then lower mind, cast upon us a spell
Head-heart split, in fears we began to dwell
Ego spawned sorrow, spelt our heartís death knell

Empty heart sought joy amidst illusions
Godís light veiled, unending our delusions
Opaqued truth birthed mistaken conclusions

Acceptance dawns, we enter the abyss
Bowing down to conscience, erst fears dismiss
Yearning for God, replacing narrow views
Stillness dynamic, joy pulse that renews
Surrender complete, filling heart with bliss
Acrostic syllabic rhyme

An open secret
 

What words are apt, to transfer emotion
Where lies the fulcrum of throbbing vibrance
What makes cessation, lead to elation
Which hue of dusk, triggers its remembrance

Soft brilliant hues of spiritual light
Invisible flickers in space are known
Ignition renewal through day and night
Rapture beyond measure, we alone own

Pranic pathways within, coming alive
Wisdom downloads and a ride in the void
Nodes within form, to music divine jive
Our thought rested awareness, by love buoyed

Such open secrets, hidden in plain sight
Teleports our heart to boundless delight

surprise, surprise, vaporise
 

A chain fails at its weakest link
Look for attachments, cause of fear
Mirroring desire, find these chinks
Once free, boundless bliss within spears

Let us now shift, into high gear
A chain fails at its weakest link
Surrender lets God, our life steer
Whilst ego cravings make us sink

Breeze with ease, at illusions wink
In this dream world, let our peers leer
A chain fails at its weakest link
Disappear; there is no one here

Save throb of love, hold nothing dear
Rest oh hermit, bliss nectar drink
When God draws near, all becomes clear
A chain fails at its weakest link

Journey without movement
 

Soft,
tender
bliss caress,
pervades our form
in time dissolved calm,
as nodes awake in dance
to the music of the spheres,
love magnetised soma nectar,
brings to life hitherto dormant cells,
thus complete, from head to toe, joy replete.

No doing need be done along this path,
being a journey without movement,
wherein we choose to resonate
with counsel of vibrant soul,
in sync with pulse of God,
speaking as conscience
within our heart,
which we all
daily
feel.

Echo return
 

Echo return contoured by consciousness
Oft ignores our interconnectedness
Sternest rebuff being indifference
In a poignant, painful, time stretched silence
Mitigating our innate blissfulness

Endearing touch of childlike lovingness
Vibrantly bubbling agendalessness
Burns, upturns, on facing insentience
Echo return

Hermit mode, in perfect, brilliant stillness
Recognising underlying oneness
Heals to so reveal, soulís luminescence
Engaging innocently in parlance
Learns that egos stern, reflect not kindness
Echo return

Divine fragrance
 

Fragrance divine ineffable
Real; not a mere parable
Suffusing form from head to toe
Tender touch inimitable

Once softened attention mellow
Presence beholds how love hues grow
Poised in stillness, unexpectant
Reaping fruits of seeds we did sow

Erst fears and desires decadent
Innocence here and now present
Feels deep within, bliss magnetism
Cognisant of heart radiant

Bliss mists fill us, leaving no chasm
Within this here, mind-body prism
Boundaries blur, nodes within stir
Synced with the divine pendulum
