I Said To The Wanting Creature Inside Me

I Said To The Wanting Creature Inside Me

I Said To The Wanting Creature Inside Me: What is this river you want to cross? There are no travelers on the river-road, and no road. Do you see anyone moving about on that bank, or nesting? There is no river at all, and no boat, and no boatman. There is no tow rope either, and no one to pull it. There is no ground, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford! And there is no body, and no mind! Do you believe there is some place that will make the soul less thirsty? In that great absence you will find nothing. Be strong then, and enter into your …

Not My struggles - My Freedom
Not My struggles – My Freedom

Not My struggles – My Freedom

Not My struggles – My Freedom Freedom: the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint. Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. – Martin Luther King, Jr. Not my sister – My God. Not my father – My Krishna. Not my mother – My Buddha. Not my ex – My Jesus. Not my friend – My Rama. Not my Boss – My Divinity. Not my Job – My Scripture. Not my teacher – My Gandhi. Not my lover – My Savior. Not my …

If This is Your PASSION
If This is Your PASSION

If This is Your PASSION

If This is Your PASSION. Whatever it is-  then name it, brand it, own it, and just do it. What I discovered (way too late) is you just gotta do your thing. Whatever it is, if it’s authentic, if it’s yours, if it’s genuine; then you gotta do it. Someone I love said to me, “Those dreams, those HUGE dreams, they are gonna come true… They have to. Because you didn’t make them up, they were given, handed down, planted in you; because not everyone dreams that large, not everyone wants the same things… SO all you gotta do is walk.” Walk… Without worrying about money or recognition. All that …

Breaking Up: Even The Little Ones Suck

Breaking Up: Even The Little Ones Suck

Breaking up: Even the little ones suck. They just remind us of the big one, the one. They look so very happy that you try to find the space in your heart to not begrudge her. You ask everybody you know, how long does it take before you usually get over it? There are many formulas: One year for every year you dated. Two years for every year you dated. It’s just a matter of will power: the day you decide its over, its over. The fact that they haven’t changed their number gives you strange hope, even though you know they are dating someone else. You try every trick in …

You Know What I Mean? Right?

You Know What I Mean? Right?

You know what I mean? Right? Right? You hear me? You get it? That’s what I’m saying, you feel me? Why do you want my approval? I don’t wanna give it, it doesn’t  matter what I think, it doesn’t matter. Be you and I will not care, I don’t need to know… You know? You know, your knowing is all that really matters. The Buddha says the only thing you can’t teach is UNDERSTANDING. If someone is not ready to receive or believe or be okay, we can t make them. A person’s understanding is their own journey, happening at their own rate; a snake will shed it’s skin at …

Vulnerability: Utterly Vulnerable To The Possibility Of Love

Vulnerability: Utterly Vulnerable To The Possibility Of Love

Vulnerability: utterly vulnerable to the possibility of love. The below is an exert from Junot Diaz talking about his book – The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao… Oscar consistently thrusts himself, places himself, openly, in the hands of other people. In the hands of the women that he thinks he loves and who always reject him. Yunior is fascinated by this because he himself is never able to take off any of the armor, or any of the masks, that a person has to completely take off to expose themselves to the vulnerability of love. There’s a point when you’re with somebody in a relationship where the decision comes …

There's A Moon Inside My Body

There’s A Moon Inside My Body

There’s A Moon Inside My Body THE moon shines in my body, but my blind eyes cannot see it: The moon is within me, and so is the sun. The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me; but my deaf ears cannot hear it. So long as man clamours for the I and the Mine, his works are as naught: When all love of the I and the Mine is dead, then the work of the Lord is done. For work has no other aim than the getting of knowledge: When that comes, then work is put away. The flower blooms for the fruit: when the fruit comes, the …

Are You Looking For Me?

Are You Looking For Me?

Are You Looking For Me? – Poem by Kabir Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat. My shoulder is against yours. you will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals: not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables. When you really look for me, you will see me instantly — you will find me in the tiniest house of time. Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God? He is the breath inside the breath. Kabir Kabīr was a mystic poet and saint of India, …
