Spiritual pitfalls
 
The urge to serve
For a feel good factor
Though with gusto and verve
Act of doership, ego the detractor

Hermit resolute
Knows his life's mission
Recognising egoís in pursuit
For each act, seeks God's permission

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
 
primal feral instincts
involuntarily stir
catching us off guard
yet here they are
vibrations unwelcome
which so appear
where grow their roots
which we nurture

Unfeeling hearts
 
sometimes it so happens
love knocks on icy hearts
and is cold shouldered

in timeless time jagged rocks
are smoothened by the riverís flow
love employs no force

unconscious souls
yet rooted in animal nature
appear cloaked in human form

the indwelling spirit
is the same within all
only coordinates differ

thereís neither judgment nor shame
the sunlight continues to stream
on all life without prejudice

Stoop to conquer
 
Spiritual practice is doomed from the start,
since any ritual involves our doership
and therefore unless egoís made to depart,
futile is our meditation or worship,
unless ofcourse we choose to add love to cart,
exiting shallow game of one-upmanship,
whereupon once no agenda is tabled,
by God's grace, soul's ascension is enabled.

Watch that thought
 
behold heart contractions
appear in consciousness
it shouldnít be so but is
leaving us astonished
so we witness tremors
just looking nonchalantly
the thoughtís self-conscious
feels lonesome since it is unfed

it is a standoff
in time stretched silence

the imaginary bubble of delusion
bursts noiselessly in the void
for itís existence depends
upon our attention

betwixt the ebb and flow
waves of bliss cascade within
dynamic stillness envelopes being

ever tranquil

Is-ness of being-ness
 
lament not
whatís downstream
be here now

desire not
mere objects
bliss beats beep

Godís life pulse
resounding
throbs within

In awe of God
 
In awe of God, with love not fear,
soulís innocence rests lower mind,
tuning in to divine rhythm kind,
letting not lower thoughts appear,
deeming all as one and thus dear,
playing our life role as assigned,
in awe of God.

When bliss beats rise, we sense Heís near
and follow loveís scent in trust blind,
that we be by its hues defined,
shaped by spirit, we choose to steer,
in awe of God.

Benign bliss burn
 
Bliss magnetism transforms our form
Our heartís gripped in childlike delight
Nodes tingling within, the new norm
As rapture peaks by day and night

Our central vein is ignited
Bliss magnetism transforms our form
Head and heart, with love united
Willingly to Godís laws conform

Caress divine, tender and warm
Radiant energy torus
Bliss magnetism transforms our form
Mindful eye gentle, heart porous

Thereís no doing that need be done
Standing still in this benign storm
With God one, we shine like the sun
Bliss magnetism transforms our form

Who am I
 
See ye not yet, we're hypnotised
by desires, so our soul's capsized.
Stillness side-steps illusion net.
We're hypnotised. See ye not yet?

Weíre not the mind, we're not this form.
We're not the currents, cool or warm.
Weíre living light, blissful and kind.
We're not this form, we're not the mind.

Stoic surrender
 
knowing is not the becoming
until we assimilate wisdom
recognising within heart
lies Godís kingdom

yet having been and so seen
truth of underlying reality
in the midst of storms
we retain clarity

within the womb of existence
thereís no haste to ascend
standing still all we do
our will to God bend
