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

Unseeking Seeker 03-01-2023 12:55 PM

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

Unseeking Seeker 26-01-2023 12:49 AM

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

Unseeking Seeker 08-03-2023 03:30 AM

Sin and redemption
 
Branding the wayward
as a perpetrator of evil
let us pause a moment
to examine origin of sin

knowing not love and light
is the cause not ignorance
resulting in fall from grace

all that then is required
is to show the roadmap

that such souls may awake

Unseeking Seeker 13-03-2023 05:11 AM

Inner light
 
vibrant emptiness
no urge to react
or to respond
magnetism hums
soma nectar drips
what else then is there
that needs to be felt
as we so radiate
our inner light

Unseeking Seeker 26-03-2023 09:15 AM

Hall of mirrors
 
Replacing one illusion for another
is merely shifting coordinates in space,
for our indulgence therein will yet smother
freedom of soul, with new horizons to chase,
thus but a mind game conjured, so why bother
if the outcome at end of days is disgrace,
having succumbed to cravings of our ego,
in the world of transience, weíre loathe to forgo.

Flickering awareness
 
Having been shown that we are living light,
how may we assimilate this knowing
in our mind-body with spherical sight,
that in time stretched silence, we keep flowing,
seeing clearly our inner light glowing?
Encased in form, attention oscillates
and so we languish outside heaven's gates.
Flickering awareness is of no use,
for the peace we felt, on earth plane abates,
so we are still and let bliss beats seduce.

Descent and ascent
 
Poised at a point, that stands apart from space-time,
all that is, is energy before release,
when awareness self-aware then heeds love's chime,
opting to bilocate with nonchalant ease,
that its diminished self may heavenward climb,
after exiting trance; ego spawned disease.
Thus, first one becomes two, then two becomes one,
reuniting with source, when we come undone.

The simple truth
 
the character in the dream wishes to awake
imagining that its soul growth is at stake
whilst the dreamer in trance is deluded
how then may truth be concluded
unless the object ceases to respond
thereby breaking off fear and desire bond

this is the way oh hermit, just stop thinking
the truth of existence hides between eyes blinking

Unseeking Seeker 01-05-2023 11:38 PM

Who am I
 
”The truth is in here, not out there ~
We’re luminous soul, self-aware”



Our heart recalls, we’re living light
but lower mind leads us astray.
God’s grace alone, bestows clear sight.

Blue skies turn grey and so we pray,
hoping against hope to be blessed
but lower mind leads us astray.

It’s time oh hermit, we undressed,
resting cravings of our ego,
hoping against hope to be blessed.

Choosing then, to make thought flow slow,
we plunge into the vibrant void,
resting cravings of our ego.

No longer by erst fears decoyed,
as truth of soul we realise,
we plunge into the vibrant void.

Ceasing to weigh, measure or size,
our heart recalls, we’re living light.
As truth of soul we realise,
God’s grace alone, bestows clear sight.

Have the cake and eat it too
 
The flame of awareness is held by God,
which flickers in mind-body that we learn
that we should not be by illusions awed,
in staid silence, imbibing loveís bliss burn.

The question is, how may we bilocate,
to be present both in heaven and earth,
which requires that our heart carries no weight,
through highs and lows of life, bubbling with mirth?

Transmutation of form as living light
would let us have the cake and eat it too,
wherein having garnered spherical sight,
breath by breath we feel pulse of bliss renew.

To become as such, ego must recede ~
In childlike trust, allowing love to lead

A revelation
 
the fabric of space yields
shimmering, lifting the veil
that what stands behind it
is perceived as living light
being the light of our Self

Unseeking Seeker 27-05-2023 04:56 AM

Commiserations
 
weíre called upon to console
a friend whose spouse has passed
and so we faithfully play out our life role
as we have been by the universe so tasked

the stark truth is that we have all been lied to
for all that here appears and disappears
is but a mist like the morning dew
needless are tears and fears

Unseeking Seeker 31-05-2023 03:17 AM

Walk the talk
 
The path is simple, walk on it
Erasing desires, bit by bit
Embrace and release, flow with ease
Godís grace takes us to the summit

Demons of mind, we need not please
Simply flow like the morning breeze
Love aloneís real, wisely choose
Let now cravings of ego cease

Succumb not to lower mindís ruse
Lifeís a dream, we can never lose
Find out the truth of who we are
Feel how bliss mists, our form suffuse

Allís within, not somewhere afar
Our soulís light is like the North Star
To know the truth, simply be still
Thereís no need to struggle and spar

Surrender fully to Godís will
For pure hearts, voids within soon fill
We are enabled by Godís grace
Thus easy is ascent uphill

Whispers from the void
 
silence intimate
beckons us

ego prefers noise

heart calls to head
to align with love

and regain poise
