One Night Windless

Tonight’s the darkest of windless nights Up there, in limitless heights Sat twinkling stars burning bright Utter silence! Yet they seem To converse in hushed whisper Rapt in attention, I tried to listen intently The vast void separating them, billions in miles, Converged, the friendly cluster beamed...

A Sovereign's Song

Kings, monarchs, my dear, even emperors are all bound in unseen captivity! Exceptional conjurers they, the mystics, who have conquered their selves. Masters of their minds, desires in whom no longer their elves are the real sovereigns, Else he’s a pauper Not to be one’s own master is to be like a... Sign in to see full entry.

Not so soon, not so soon

Oh No, not so soon, Sir! I am not one to close The doors of my senses; they’re my repose Harbinger of delights, winds of desire, taking flights Taste, touch, smell, hearing, and my sights Playfully virginal, sinful, errant, but still beautiful Gaiety, indulgence, immoderation, all too bountiful How...

Understanding Violence

The subject is continued from yesterday’s post: Non-violence as propounded by the founder of Jainism, Mahaveera. As we were discussing, man is naturally non-violent ( not easy on the mind to accept so ), and that all positives in Nature defy definition – health, happiness, love, peace, for example,...

Ahimsa -- non-violence

Man is intrinsically non-violent. All violence is acquired from outside. Therefore, all efforts at being non-violent is a means of throwing out the sickness that has come from without. From within, our health reposes in non-violence, Ahimsa. Ahimsa is the greatest requirement and the immediate... Sign in to see full entry.

The other dimension of Love

I was absolutely delighted to find the sense of ecstasy in one of John Donne’s poem by the same title. It is, he explains, the realization through a temporary disassociation of the soul from the body and what all happens thereafter that ecstasy descends. Their bodies are the spheres in which their...

Music Divine Unforgettable

Alongside a grove of Norfolk Island pine Grows a solitary rosebush steady and fine Delicate liana creeper clings with an unrelated Oak trunk; weren’t they friends or lovers long-lost, reunited! Vast Himalayan mountain range overcast, lies waste The endless bounds of the Great Saharan... chaste Hide... Sign in to see full entry.

Doubt the Original Sin

Seeded in doubt we remain which is always about The good and never about the bad, and none a non-devout! When I am happy it’s too good to be true; come bad But do I ever ask am I unhappy, am I really sad? Happiness, the stranger that rarely visits human soil Joy and bliss! Oh, they're plain words of...

Non-Existent Objectives?

I was reading about Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky. All were revolutionaries, but of different kinds: Marx, non-violent; Stalin, violent; and Trotsky, violence personified. The Marxist revolution thrived under the umbrella of the Gainer Theory which says: Either you gain something or you... Sign in to see full entry.

How we distanced God

When God created man, Man was truly innocent; he could go, Meet, talk, walk and breathe With God, flow with Him In His own flow …the bond was such! And probably, for God, a little too much!
