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!

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

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

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

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

Alone & Joyful

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

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

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

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!
