I have set out on a great journey
My destiny unknown
In this silent domain
My heart seeks its throne.
I have taken an uncharted course
Each step consuming its own
This quietude within me
In silence, freely I roam.
I have been released and unchained
Beneath the tree of wisdoms’ name
My eyes gaze into what cannot be seen
Awakened as if from a dreamless dream.
I have moved, without moving on
Where am I? Where have I gone?
Without myself, so deeply alone
I rest in this place now called my Home
I have touched the untouchable
Embracing its infinite love
It sings the sweetest melody
Without saying a word
Now, my journey is done
It ends, exactly where it begun.
RENEWALS OF OLD
In Spring new messages descend
Unravelling from the One:
Each flower at dawn begs you to bend
And bless the rising sun.
Rain softly falls, delightfully,
Spring rain, loved like no other,
That Life may drink, delightedly,
Milk from the eternal Mother.
I should be astounded at the Body –
At the bones, the threading veins, the perfect
Blood, breath, and driving brain, and lucent
Each part a potent genius of labour,
Each part compact with every other part –
But I am mostly numb to the miracle of the flesh,
And the greater miracle of what it contains:
I find pale reflections of God in sages, or in
songs, or in the hypnotic contractions and
expansions of inorganic nature, that
marvellous magic-lantern show;
And I treat my body, my amazing, luminous body,
Like an old worn sack in which to dump my rubbish,
Or like dry sticks to kindle fitful lust,
And I never think of it:
But go on casting my myopic eyes around the
Universe for clues to His impenetrable nature,
Picking up faint crumbs of knowledge and trying to
make a loaf of them!
The Lost Diamond
At the dawn of time, there was a man who fell into a deep sleep with his beloved diamond resting upon his chest and the next day when he arose, he discovered that his beautiful diamond was gone. Unbeknown to him, that great jewel that he cherished so much had fallen deep within him, hidden away in the furthest depth of his heart. Needless to say, he was deeply depressed, discontented and full of sorrow. His whole life became darkness. He looked everywhere for it, endlessly. His entire life was full of misery because he had lost his precious diamond, which illuminated his whole life. Eventually, as time passed, he gave up his search and forgot about it all together. Then, one day, when his sorrow had reached its lowest depth, a wise man came to speak with him and this is what he said.
Listen, young man, for I am the mouth of all wisdom.
So please, do listen closely to the voice of intelligence.
For I realize that you have lost a great treasure,
That in which you cherished with all your heart.
Know that I have come so that you may find it.
For like you, I too once lost my beloved as well.
Therefore, I have come to point it out to you,
In fact, you will see that it is very simple.
Now, you must first realize that you have searched everywhere.
You have looked outside, in this world both day and night, yes?
You have asked everybody that you see across all the land, yes?
You have exhausted your entire search and then you gave up, yes?
Now, what if I told you there is one place in which you did not look?
What if I told you to look within yourself for that precious jewel?
That great treasure in which you desire and long to see.
It is that eternal wonder that is calling for you now.
Do not marvel because I am telling you that it is within you.
Do not falter that I speak with certainty of finding that which you seek.
The key is to understand what took place and how you lost that treasure.
My friend, you are not awake, and you are sound asleep as if in a dream.
I have come not to awaken you but to show that you are asleep.
When you see that you are asleep, that brings its own transformation.
Observe the fact that you are asleep and that will awaken you.
It is the power of seeing that awakens you to that magnificent essence.
As you listen to my words, you begin to notice how your mind becomes quiet.
You can feel yourself become completely still and watchful deep inside.
Quietly, observing every movement of your mind, emotions and thoughts.
Listen with great intent to all that you see, hear, think and feel.
For this is the secret pathless way which leads within to your kingdom.
Watch and observe with all your heart, everything that is in and around you.
This is the burning of darkness and delusion that clouds all man.
This fire of wisdom consumes the illusions and dreams of ignorance.
It is here, which leads to the pathless route of your sacred treasure.
That diamond is calling you as you listen to these words of wisdom.
It is here and now that you may look through the veil of darkness.
It is at this very moment that you are awakening to that glorious sight.
Realize in this moment, dear friend that in which you seek, awaits you.
It is only through grace and glory that great treasure awakens within you.
Because you seek and long for this, with all your heart for the beloved,
It is now that you may come face to face with that sacred treasure,
Marvel at its greatness, wonder of all wonders, mystery of all mysteries,
That glorious vision that is life, love, intelligence and peace beyond all things.
Anthem of the Unknown
Realize, I am the end of man
Right and wrong does not exist in me
I am the source of all things
Be still and I will come to you
Here and now is the entrance to my kingdom
Neither night nor day is found in me
All that you need to find me is within you
Humanity holds the key to my door
Unknown and untouchable for eternity,
Rest in me only
The beginning and the end; you shall see,
I am the eternal Glory.
Today, I thank you
Without a doubt, you are my all in all
My one and only true friend.
In you, I can trust always
In you, there is eternal peace.
Today, I honor your holy presence
You are the glory that brings me joy
You are the purity from beyond
You are my weakness and my salvation
I give my all to you, always.
It is your brilliance that shines in me
It is your wonder that has me enamored
Now that we are one all illusions are no more
Inseparable, we are one and the same, my only beloved.
whispered in my ears like lemon drops
sweet and tart against my tongue
She calls to me
from inside and out
beckoning me to follow
into the woods
amongst the trees
where the scent of pine fills my nostrils
or perhaps beside the ocean
where the salty air is whipped
about me by the howling wind
She whispers to me
moving too fast to understand
but slow enough to comprehend
For these are my thoughts
as well as hers
she is me
I am her
we are one
again for a time
my soul cries out
I pause to hear
A dragon soars out on the horizon
waiting for magic to return.
The Chill assaults our senses
as the season’s indifferent movement shifts.
I feel the dark empty space of the cosmos
like it has been waiting eternity
for me to listen.
(Yes I have heard you summons me…)
Some ancient secret has escaped
Some initiation is about to begin
Bone-shattering chills awaken me
in the dead of night
I am hunted by light
it torments my dreamtime.
The water in me
holds a mysterious mystery
An inferno of love rages and thus
I only know ashes
The Earth requests me to enter
for the last time
The air travels deep inside
in search for a lost desire
(Yes I hear your summons)
My body vibrates with expectation
I am a shifting mirror
An initiate following a hidden torch
to a forgotten door
(Yes, I will come…)
When the solar-love returns
and releases her wicked wind
I will rise
to meet the phoenix,
the wave of being ascending.
And the Dragon yearns for its companions,
the magicians to return…
Out on the horizon is where magic begins.
Living is Forgiving
Living is forgiving, forgive me like I forgive you. Forgive this life of pain. So what’s wrong and what’s right when it’s all from my sight? what’s right is what’s right to you and what’s right to me is being me. I’m as strong as the rocks resting on paper. I’m as rare as the butterfly see it flutter. Do you see the tears in these eyes pour out like the rain from the skies.
These are tears of joy like a child with a toy. These are tears of bliss like a snakes hiss. I am more than this body, I am more than these words, I am beyond me, beyond what I see. See what I see. Run away with me where we can smile and live, where we can dance and give. Where we can have fun and live as one, live as one, live as one.
We are words in this existence of curiosity, ripping away what’s ours to create a monstrosity. Person after person around me in this invisible air we breathe. If I live in this world, then this world is mine. But all I am given is a shrine, to prove I was. I am here now just like you, see past the words and name and see we are the same, we are the same, we are the same.
A hidden world
Imagine a world alongside our own
where the dead and darkened souls roam.
A place where one day we will all call home.
be it a short stay or for many years to come.
As the day passes by, this world stays still
unaware of time and the laws of the physical.
It seems we all go about our day,
Unaware of our real lives and the part we play.
For we are too busy to see what is there
A millions things to keep our minds unaware
Looking out when we should be looking within
And realize our potential as a human being.
Children often are able to perceive
but struggle to find those that believe.
Growing up to suit others views
Shutting out and forgetting the truth.
If you are curious to see what’s so great
There are a few ways to open this gate
Dreams are a good start and to meditate
You’ll soon start to feel your body vibrate.
Once you have visited this mysterious place
You may find your previous perception displaced
Is it all in the mind or was it just a dream
I was safe before in what I previously perceived
Perhaps science has the answer we seek
It’s all hallucinations, your mind is weak
Thank you science for telling me
how to perceive my own reality.
To end I will leave you with this
Its is a miracle that we all exist
To believe we are the only beings around
Is why our race is still on the ground.
