Aching Heart
 

Heart is aching, seeking divine union
Found within, in erst childlike innocence
Ever present throb of bliss elation

Our fall from grace, caused by separation
Pursuing dreams in the world of transience
Heart is aching, seeking divine union

Deep hypnotic trance, caused by stagnation
Negating subtle voice of our conscience
Ever present throb of bliss elation

Dwelling in dark dungeons of delusion
Scars of sorrow, show on our countenance
Heart is aching, seeking divine union

Attachment the glue, causing contraction
Whilst joy mist is, with love in dalliance
Ever present throb of bliss elation

Here and now, we may find liberation
Consigning false ego to decadence
Heart is aching, seeking divine union
Ever present throb of bliss elation

Keep no score, let joy in-pour
 

Prismatic reflections, pulse kinetic,
tranquil calm, shifting to agitation,
our moods, melancholic or ecstatic,
range of painful to peaceful vibrations,
known to us during quiet reflection.
Pristine presence, in quietude serene,
each nuance of life flow, gently so gleans,
from fulcrum still, allowing bliss to fill
dark voids within form, the divine does clean,
as we are thus shaped, upon the anvil.

Childlike surrender
 

The
rise and
fall of bliss
currents within
accepted by heart,
being divine aligned,
quietude of surrender
aspect allowing, inviting
divine energy to heighten joy,
transmuting feeble form into pure light.

We already are That, which we become
simply by getting out of our way,
meaning, resting our ego mind,
nestled thus in tranquil calm,
nonchalant of outcomes,
bright fearless spirit,
free and unbound,
aglow with
divine

Learning the hard way
 

We
look at
the collapse
of what was built,
learning the hard way,
that fragile and fleeting
is existence, which we know,
wherein this here mind-body sinks
or swims, in as ordained, by Gods will,
shifting mind to tranquil calm, heart to love.

Earth life challenge is harsh, with stark contrast,
where souls need to face fears and desires,
dealing with both pain and pleasure,
until this clear truth is etched,
that joy in permanence
lies not outside us
but rather in,
within our
glowing
heart.

Fear of freedom
 

Inch
by inch
we progress,
making inroads
to entwine with soul,
which in turn connects us
to domain of love and light,
present both within and without
seeking but surrender of our mind,
that our heart may be filled by bliss divine.

No doing is needed toward this end,
for we already are that essence,
although not now so apparent,
since maya grips us herein,
confining awareness
in a narrow band
encircled by
a dark mist
of our
fear.

Unseeking Seeker 05-08-2021 10:32 AM

Witness consciousness
 

Life
tests us
time to time,
wherein we choose
manner of response,
which in turn depends on
measure of our detachment,
manifest moment to moment,
reflecting our soul development.

Thus, our awareness now self-aware,
free from fetters of delusion
becomes a witness to self,
simply observing life,
as it so unfolds,
be it success
or failure,
we still
sing.

Deepening stillness
 

“we must get out of our own way, so to speak
that the elixir divine, may inwards seep”
_______________________________

Bliss influx foiled by our own hand
Erst memory binds and confines
Stalled by mind, which would understand
Whilst heart vibrant, with love aligns

Both doing and non-doing fail
Bliss influx foiled by our own hand
Brave of heart, yet rudderless sail
The void is where we take our stand

Cave of our heart, a joyous land
In but not of the outer world
Bliss influx foiled by our own hand
Unless flag of love is unfurled

Cessation the way to ascend
Deep into divine pastures grand
Renouncing desire, ego bend
Bliss influx foiled by our own hand

Fundamental truth
 

Heart
is where
all desires
are born to die,
finding expression,
that our soul satisfies
these cravings delusional,
in earth domain of illusions,
until one day we self-realise
that divine love alone is eternal.

This understanding relegates body
to humble role of soul’s instrument,
to feel by touch all sensations
upon earth in fleeting form;
need, not greed of body
met, knowing ego
as a servant
of our soul,
one with
God.

Anna and the French kiss
 

“If God omnipresent, He must be resident within
We must feel then now, bliss tremors on our skin”

__________________

Been there, done that
Fleeting pleasures fall flat
Mitigated pleasure of intimacy
Foiled by stuporous delinquency
Where may be found zenith rapture
Raising stature above body caricature
Where peaked ecstasy each throb renews
Climax unending as soma nectar bliss spews

Restless Anna set off on an adventurous world tour
Lifestyle bohemian, French-kissing many a boor
She tried Kama-Sutra, frolicked with Shamans
Finally all proved to be ephemeral liaisons
Her heart burning with ardent yearning
She found not that ecstasy enlivening
Upon reaching point of exhaustion
Surrendered, entering meditation

A voice then broke the silence
‘Choose divine entwined parlance
Here and now, in this feeble mind-body
Meld head with heart resting desires shoddy’
Anna did as was told and in timeless time, behold
Polarities within form manifested ineffable bliss untold
Hidden conduits throbbed with magnetic electricity
Radiating from within, climaxing joy in continuity

Anna now knows, in being and so becoming
Vibrant blissful soul presence scintillating
Bliss bubbles burst, quenching her thirst
From head to toe in bliss so immersed
Thunderous rapture within pulsates
To the music divine her heart gyrates
Moment by moment, all moments be one
Her aura radiating glow of the spiritual sun

Blissful in darkness
 

Fear
sets in
once we see
that we may be
cornered, encircled,
with ominous outcomes
likely dark fate staring us
even as we see helping hands
withdrawing, leaving us here alone,
beginning the countdown to the gallows.

Be this as it may, we soon regain calm,
looking fear in the eye and smiling,
doing whatever best we can,
then accepting the fallout
with courage and resolve,
playing out the dream,
in as ordained
taking all
in our
stride.

What is real
 

Time
flows on
known to us
as the movement
between two events
manifested in vast space,
either by senses or thought,
thus when we rest in tranquil calm,
thought rested awareness, simply is,
beyond time and space, in void of stillness.

Beyond senses five and fragmented thought,
screen of consciousness is yet alive,
appearing and disappearing
as chosen by our impulse,
signalling noumenon
births phenomena,
which we call life
as we cling
to these
dreams.

Seek and ye shall find
 

Blind
men lead,
we follow;
dead men walking,
clutching wisps of smoke,
enslaved by fearful doubts
encircling our consciousness,
hoping against hope that somehow
the pseudo preachers words heals our soul,
entrapped within this feeble mind body.

Oh hermit, why do we flounder about
hither and thither in the darkness,
when Gods light is aglow within,
albeit for this time veiled,
with all that is needed
to reclaim clear light
is our resolve
to meld thus,
head with
heart.

Doer or non-doer
 

Use
of force
to attain
our hearts desire
makes us a doer,
applying own effort
to attain sought after goals,
displaying lack of trust in God,
unwillingness to let go of mind,
thus creating a wall of resistance.

Far better then, to choose resonation,
with vibrations of the universe,
pouring into void, pure intent,
nonchalant about outcomes,
placing trust on Gods will,
knowing that His love
beyond measure
will set us,
in time,
free.

Towards unity consciousness
 

Search
for truth,
joy suffused,
as an aspect
of our aliveness,
aglow in permanence,
is indeed a worthy goal,
raising vibrations of our soul,
ingraining within us, higher wisdom,
by melding with the divine love current.

Then thus, our lower mind must disappear,
making room within for love to grow,
transmuting our mind-body form,
in alignment with Gods will,
that our true life purpose
may begin, here now,
to shine forth light
as God wills,
here on
earth.

Who Am I
 

Bhishma Pitamah, warrior fierce and monk exalted
An ascended ascetic, whose life could not be faulted
Granted by Gods, boon of immortality, of death by wish
Yet so deep became his anguish, life he chose to relinquish
How all this came to pass is depicted in the epic, Mahabharata
Suffice to say, he could not bear to see his soul defiled by stigma
Thereby voluntarily choosing to suffer upon a bed of arrows to atone
Karmic consequences of injustice by ego identity sown, he alone did own

Quest for immortality, in effect a seeking of our ego identity to unify with soul
Encased in this mind-body, feeling limited and bound, we wish to be whole
Thus we yearn for life eternal, bliss ineffable and wisdom unimaginable
We already are that who we so seek, ego veiling cognition spherical
Deluded that we are this organic fleeting form, fear spirals arise
Imaginary identity hypnotises soul, resisting joy and surprise
Oh weary pilgrim, know we are immortal but this body not
Divine aligned, bliss suffused, exit narrow thought slots

Shrouded by fears and desires, ego flounders hither and thither
Whilst soul luminous has no questions, itself being the answer

Unseeking Seeker 07-09-2021 03:14 AM

Reincarnation
 

When
our heart
sets a goal,
mind so aligns
to fulfil the quest,
hoping for fulfilment.
For desires ego driven,
goalposts shift and horizons fade,
life whizzes by and death knocks our door,
whereupon heart seeks an action replay.

We thus take birth on earth, time and again,
until heart is calmed in staid silence,
knowing soul is not mind-body,
thus bending in surrender
to divine will alone,
letting go of fear,
in childlike trust,
whereupon
our heart
glows.

Unseeking Seeker 11-09-2021 05:39 AM

Heart - seat of soul
 

Life
within
mind-body,
being the all
as our aliveness,
our spiritual search
must necessarily start
by cognising movement of life
imbibing and releasing each pulse,
choosing expansion of our consciousness.

Our body has needs but so does our soul,
with the former enmeshed in the world
and the latter, God’s love and light,
for which, if we would connect,
we dwell in deep silence
resting thought spirals
through surrender,
whereupon
our heart
glows.

Unseeking Seeker 14-09-2021 10:44 AM

The rot has sunk in deep
 

Gender determined behavioural change
Looking at wayside beggars with disdain
Religious bias, our prejudice strange

Fairer skin colour, making us feel vain
The way we dress and speak, ego complex
Shifty eyes belie, that our heart is stained

Conflicting emotions, puzzle and vex
In truth we yearn for childlike innocence
This life game of pretence, leaves us perplexed

Let us rise hermit, from our fallen stance
Death will come one day, meanwhile let us dance

A far cry
 

A far cry; ascent, unless we decry
Fearful desires that makes loving heart sigh
Know, oh hermit, we are our tormentor
Both, the meek prisoner and fierce captor
Deaf to voice of conscience, as love draws nigh

Free soaring spirit, reaches for the sky
Living life fully, before we do die
Let’s make not merger, with The Creator
A far cry

This world of contrast, has both lows and highs
Ours is but to do, not to reason why
In silence and stillness, meditator
In midst of turbidity, placater
Is as yet the life we lead, a deep lie
A far cry

Lonely
 

Night
engulfs
the moments
of erst day’s breath,
wherein we were lost
in pursuit of daydreams,
now compelling attention
to look at the voids within us,
as we fall into the dark abyss.

Shift from loneliness to aloneness,
marks a dramatic turnaround
wherein we cease all seeking,
becoming a witness
watching a movie,
as the darkness
so becomes

We
inhale
emoting
deep gratitude,
whilst while exhaling,
we surrender our breath,
plunging into the dark void,
fully trusting currents divine,
to either grant or deny next breath,
which is enabled by the power of God.

Likewise, we witness both joy and sorrow,
as we embrace and release moments
offered during our brief sojourn,
optimised for our soul growth,
thus joyous at all times,
as the dream unfolds,
in as ordained,
each instant,
here on

Arrogance
 

Once
we get
to a point
of no return
offering glimpses
of pastures far greener
than what we had imagined,
there may perhaps arise judgment,
looking down on other souls seeking,
forgetting that our ascent was by grace.

No matter how high we rise, we must know
that we are a humble receptor,
with all enablements divine,
being by God’s will alone,
ours, when we surrender,
aligning with love,
to imbibe bliss
that in-pours
within
us.

Let it be
 

To

let go of
web of desire,
endlessly seeking,
consuming our essence,
plunging soul into rebirth,
when here, now, in third density,
love enablement is our earth goal.

Simply by aligning head with heart,
we rest in a zone of silence,
making mind-body empty,
receptive to God’s gifts,
which in-pour at once,
as boundless bliss
filling us
here and
now.

Soul view
 

Look
around
employing
soul awareness;
here now aliveness,
active in mind-body,
determining the impulse
arising from this feeble form,
which we recognise has its own needs,
distinct from yearnings of our glowing heart.

As we look on thus with a mindful eye,
yielding to body’s need but not greed,
anchored nowhere in stagnation,
breathing gently, oozing love,
our head and heart align
in vibrant silence,
tranquil and still,
present here,
aglow
thus.

The game
 

Gift
of form
that we feel;
soul aliveness
in third density
as of innate longing,
separation and union,
within a lucid, lifelike dream,
wherein the one appears as many,
at play here by our self-luminescence.

With veil of maya, concealing the truth,
we enter the dream, as an actor,
playing out the role as chosen,
feeling both sorrow and joy,
becoming love suffused,
enhancing wisdom,
till soul awakes,
here and now,
in the
flesh.

Power of silence
 

Here we are and here we begin
in silence, going in within
Images bemuse, so we be still
feeling bliss tingle on our skin

Voids within form begin to fill
Nectar divine does overspill
We imbibe bliss by magnetism
shaped gently, upon the anvil

Head and heart meld in body prism
Vibrant is our sensorium
Our heart stirs in joyous caper
cleansed of ego residuum

with erst fears and desires, all left behind.

Life unfolds as of perfect divine plan,

Our swan-song
 

Singing our song, let us take all along
Gods pranic force flows through each beings veins
Love and light within, amplifies Ohm gong
Purity of heart, cleansing erst soul stains

Let us break free of delusional chains
Amidst hues of love, is where we belong
Head melded with heart reduces our pains
Singing our song, let us take all along

Pulse of our conscience, discerns right from wrong
Futile is pursuit of all transient gains
Shedding off weakness, let us emerge strong
Gods pranic force flows through each beings veins

Mindful presence, slowly wisdom ingrains
God beckons us, why do we take so long
Let us hand over to Him, free will reins
Love and light within, amplifies Ohm gong

Let’s plunge into the bliss current headlong
Once ego vaporises, what remains
Prayer moment to moment, thus lifelong
Purity of heart, cleansing erst soul stains

Lay to rest pilgrim, feeble ego’s brains
Extract deep wisdom by the divine’s tong
God is our saviour, each life breath maintains
Bliss for eternity, we thus prolong

Hello there, oh glowing one
Radiant in resplendent light
I see you have travelled far
In as of course vibrationally
Nestled in a cocoon of bliss
Speckled by the elixir divine
Emitting soothing fragrance
Wafting across the inky void
Dwelling in a dome of delight

Oh dear one, this joy exalted
Aspirational as also laudable
Is it as yet suffused with love
Awakened from erst passivity
Selflessly choosing self-exile
Descending into gross realms
Where demonic fears haunt
Despondent souls in darkness
For if not, dear heart, reflect

We delight at your splendour
Glimpsed by periscope vision
Yet what avail transcendence
Which yets nurtures the ego
Transfixed in bliss thunderous
That is held captive in a shell
Shared not among all brethren
Of what use are yogic powers
If not energised by love divine

Love within in our heart knows
How compassion slowly grows

Him, in our heart
but thoughts interfere,
shrouding is in dark fear,
creating a looming chasm
between God and our soul within,
which remains until we surrender,
by melding head with heart, aligned with love.

Please understand that love employs no force,
thus waiting for as long as it takes
for us to awake from stupor,
exiting game of shadows,
bemused not by maya,
choosing God alone,
love enabled

Each breath anew, beholding in wonder
Bemused not by illusions, feet on ground
We see life as it is; merry-go-round
Mindful that our touch, to each be tender

Love suffused, leaving no hearts asunder

Heightened rapture of bliss, soundless thunder
No longer are by fears and desires bound
Within spacial heart, soul luminous found

God and we are one
 

Without doubt, we feel separate from source,
limited by time, space, knowledge, power,
with will to restricted to actions coarse,
thus in fearful darkness, our heart cowers,
distanced from Gods love, light and bliss shower.
Trapped in the open, we are free within,
on entering tranquil silence sanguine,
fearlessly embracing the joy current,
as blissful rapture each moment begins,
we be to become self-luminescent.

Such is non-doing of the pathless path,
silence and stillness reclaiming the light,
each moment in time, a holy sabbath,
voice of conscience discerning wrong from right,
whilst ecstasy heightens through day and night.
Boundaries blur as consciousness expands,
clear light dawns, we begin to understand,
God is within and this dream world fleeting
that once love enabled, our destiny grand,
as we witness our divine soul blooming.
