What my dear is love?

What my dear is love
Is it the meeting of hearts?
Is it the gelling of minds?
Is it the mating of bodies?
What my dear is love?

Love is all about space
Love is all about faith
Its all about having trust
And a whole lot of patience

Love is eternal and forever
It’s a feeling an emotion
And yet unbinding and free
Unexplored yet so known

Love invokes joy and bliss
It surrounds and supports
Love moves the world
Unifies and unites into one

Love is pure acceptance
Its also about tolerance
A deep feeling of connecting
Also its about rejoicing

Love is about freedom
being unshackled unbound
To explore to express
to be natural and oneself

Its not about bondage
Its not about possession
Its not about control
Its not about command

Love is pure sunshine
The light of the moon
The twinkle in the stars
The caress of the breeze

Entwining with nature
Mating with the divine
A meeting a union
So divine so sublime…

SOLITUDE

There I was amidst the crowd
Merging and gelling around
The moments passed to hours
And soon it was time to go
The sanctity of home beckoned
The silence, the solitude awaited
A pull, a tug to leave and go
To the haven of solitude and bliss
The stillness in the silence
This was the ultimate experience
Why then the need to go out
When it all was right within
Why step out at all in the ocean
When it all was at the shore

Silence

Where was the sound?

I could hear it loud

Yet it seemed silent

I know not how

It was the sound of the mind

The chatter in the mind

at times it felt like birds chirping

at times it felt like waves lashing

The sound went on and on

Silence …how would it be?

Was it no sound? utter stillness?

Did silence have no sound?

Then I would  have to see it

and surely could not hear it

how would it be?

would it be dark or light?

Who then would see the silence

In the stillness, in the darkness

How could silence be seen?

Who saw when the eyes closed

Who heard when the ears were shut

There was an “I” other than this body

infinite and one, that was the “I”

With no you, only an “I”

Who saw who heard who spoke

It was this “I” and none other

Where was this “I” did I know

Not until I existed would I know

the “I” untouched…unseen…yet…

The eternal one…

Only one

Who laughed who cried?
Who was sad and who felt joy
Who danced and who sulked
Who was born and who died?

In this dual game of life
It was all but two sides
Of the same old coin

One followed the other
Like a shadow they lurked
When I laughed I knew
Next moment I would cry

Why birth happened
If we had to die
Why the constant double
When it could be single

The shadow on the street
The image in the mirror
The reflection in the water

It was time now to know
How to shed the echo
One alone and no dual
How long to bear the ordeal

Eyes closed in prayer
Why two eyes I wondered
Why two ears to hear

Why two I asked the divine
Why was I not yet sublime?
Eyes closed I looked on
Where were the two now gone?

There was only one
The dual had been an illusion
It had always been just one

I no longer felt the shadow
I knew I had lost the echo
No image no reflection
If at all there was any
It was the one and only one…
