they call it ‘god’

I am nothing but the echo
of my whispering soul.

Why do they call it ‘god’? They call it god because it is not matter. All we can see and can be observed makes our material universe. But something else exists, which allows this material universe to be in the first place, and that is not made of matter, it cannot be observed or studied. Sort of like… dreams. Can anyone deny the existence of dreams? Everybody dreams. Yet, can we put a dream under a microscope? We can only study its manifestation, not its substance.

So with god. It is merely a symbol of something which cannot be limited to the material universe. Is god real? Are you?


all the answers

in stillness and in silence
lie all the answers
of your wavering mind.

If we accept all change just as it is, comings and goings within an unchanging awareness, and not get attached to anything at all, but rather recognize yourself as That which is unchanging and allows all things to be, then life can be the eternally joyful experience.


life is ephemeral

life is ephemeral
and find its meaning
in its traceless flight.

Everything of this world is transitory and temporary. Only the ego wants things to be permanent and unchanging, because it is afraid of dying. The ego finds comfort in asserting its own existence, and that is all it does throughout our lives. We try to prove that “Yes, I am someone”.
That is why enlightenment is called “ego’s biggest disappointment”. Awakening to the true reality means melting the illusory ego, or that sense of “i am a separate self”. It is a long and arduous process, including shedding all the layers of what we falsely call ‘me’. What is left is life itself, which needs no purpose outside itself.


removing veils

removing veils, one by one
making pathways
to return home.

You are the center of existence. If you continue to feel that the world or life exists ‘outside’ you, there is no hope of awakening. This is not some arrogant, selfish theory. This is experiential truth to be realized, not understood by mind.

The illusion that there is a ‘me’ and a world outside, is what keeps us sleeping. No such thing as this and that. There is only one.

Train yourself to stay in that space of oneness all the time.


yield and surrender

veils are rising
I can see through the mist
loosening my grip
over life’s order.
I am no longer life’s commander.
I yield and surrender
to a gentler flow.
there is no more fear
the way ahead is clear.

Being ‘subservient’ is not the same as ‘surrendering’. The wave cannot be ‘subservient’ to the ocean, because it was never separate from the ocean. By surrendering, it gains all the power of the ocean. It is based on loving devotion, not fear and separation.

So really, it is only the mental attitude you bring along. One will make you slave, the other will make you king.
