Poem/Prayer

Post by DavidK » Wed Dec 28, 2005 6:17 am

The Heart of every object
The Essence of all space
One Infinite Awareness
One Light in every face

The Heart of every object
The Essence of all space
One Infinite Awareness
Awake in me Thy Grace

Who am I?

I am not my body
I am not my mind
I am not my feelings
I am not defined

I am this I am
I am that I am
I am those I am
I am all I am

Thank you Be-lank.

I don't really have anything else at the moment.

Both of these poems came out of me trying to boil the essence of what I've been learning from a few different teachers, ET, Ramana Maharshi, Gangaji, into a few lines that I can remember easily while at work.

Also, it was a way to occupy my mind with something that would hopefully lead me back towards truth rather than off into ego driven thought.

The irony is that writing is very "doer oriented" and I'm planting the seed that I need to think or do something to remain spiritually centered. But I find that if I don't consciously do something to stay focused in the Now and on my real Self, then the abounding distractions of life blow me off into more ego driven thinking, pain body driven feeling, and I appear to lose or fall off the spiritual path.

Your thoughts?

Now that I've heard some of the Tony Parsons material, I've been using the following as a sort of mantra:


Aliveness
Awareness
A Oneness
Awakening

This popped out today.

She and me and they and thee
Our thoughts and feelings, words and deeds
All waterfalls along the stream
Of joyful tears Eye Am wept free

Thanks, David. I love the simplicity. :) There a lot to be said for brevity, too. :lol:

I am upstream of this dream

And being is this dreaming
