My feet planted firmly on the slithering sands
Steadily trickling from the hourglass of my life
Enhance my awareness that every passing moment
Is a fresh opportunity to grab and make the most of it
Life is wonderful, cyclical, giving, withdrawing, is
Dictated by our past deeds, but we can make amends,
Brighten our prospects by constantly goading self
To become purer in thoughts, deeds and actions
Dreams can be surreal, multi dimensional, and we can
Exist and fly freely in all realms weaving in and out
Have out of body experiences until suddenly the alarm
Goes off, and we are brought back to reality with a thud!!
I want to eat my cake and have it to and this I can do
By going inwards and experience the true self within, as
God inhabits my inner recesses, now I need not teeter from one
shrine to another in his quest, and see same pure soul in others.
Meditation suddenly gave me the whole world in scant time
Mighty oceans, bluer than blue skies, sea and sands all exist
Within and are within grasp, a true thirst was all that was needed
All cloudy doubts dissolved, washing whole being in sheer bliss
Now, I experience the goose bumpy feel of the sands in my toes
And as the tides swirl all over me, my head can be in the clouds
Having a tete a tete with the stars and this surreal reality is all possible
As I know for a fact that god is within me, n where He is, all else IS!!!!!
The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide;
Above the world is stretched the sky,-
No higher than the soul is high.
-Edna St. Vincent Millay, Renascence, 1912
