A Little Craving

A Little Craving
-------------------------

Deep stillness of my mind
I crave in the deep of my heart.
Where everything elopes in the one
And merges in identity of the Almighty.

Where all my happiness, agonies become alike
Where everything finds space in the calm ambiance.
When the cool, placid shadow of great tree
Shall try to take every one in its bosom.

When deep consciousness is there and I forget everything
When the Almighty himself is ready to embrace me.
The moments such I crave the most
And take the vastness of sky in my palm.

When I become ‘HE’ and He becomes me
There is no one but only me and He.
I shall think then goal of my life is accomplished
And the rest has come after long-long journey.

When the thinking takes me to ecstasy
When I find myself satisfied with my performance.
When my standards are consistently improved
When I am almost near to that ‘Ideal’ one.

When my mind takes me to depths of contemplation
When this pen starts writing the most beautiful mind.
When my strong craving is towards the higher ones
When I find self sitting in the feet of Buddha one.

When I stop babbling the unnecessary words
When I am able to fulfill my commitments.
When I become the trustworthy
And honesty, trustfulness and devotion imbibe in me.

I don’t want to be called as the inferior one
But if I am so today then shall not remain tomorrow.
I shall try to be really a gem
Whom the wise ones may probably recognize.

When I become part of the whole humanity
When all specks of universe become me.
Then no one is foreign and I am international
When all cosmic energy becomes part of me.

My words shall be today more articulate and meaningful
My life shall today be more lively and worthy.
My levels shall certainly improve today
And the richness of life shall amuse me.

I shall make my working atmosphere more placid today
Where work flow only be permitted to sound sweetly.
Where everybody realizes his responsibilities
And we become more duty-bound & disciplined.

One More Awakening

One More Awakening
-----------------------------

With my closed eyes, I want to see the world
With my lame legs, I want to cross the world.
With my closed ears, I want to hear the world
With my closed temptations, I want to sense the world.

I am the one who has opened his eyes already
That sight is enough if I have power to grasp.
With my ears I have heard enough already
That listening is enough if I have power to grasp.

My legs have enough traversed the countries
My mind has enough traversed vast tracts of experience.
My temptations have already occupied me
Only thing remained unwavered is my will to conquer.

Life can be lived efficiently when we have desire to do so
It can be harnessed in the best way if we want to do so.
Will or desire is the supreme which shall take us to glory
With this we will just roam in the realm of darkness.

For seeing life you need not to traverse too far
It is always here, around you.
 Only thing required to open your eyes and realize it
Then you will find yourself more than quenched.

We need to dream greater than our life sizes
Otherwise we will remain far less than required.
Life is to live it fully
Otherwise tomorrow it may be repented that we lived even not.

What is it which makes us realize ‘completeness’
What is it which makes us sense ‘liberated’?
How can we feel the sense of ‘flow’
When we shall become one for which we are ‘incarnated’?

Darkness is enough; it requires a glow of light
A small ray of light makes flee the darkness.
A small ‘hope’ does away all thoughts of pessimism
A small ‘desire’ makes us a good Purusharthi.

These small-small things when added together
Become a great lump of enormous power.
Have you not heard ‘Unity is Strength’
The lesson the dying farmer given to his foolish sons?

The rishis of Upanishadas were seated in jungles
But from there only, were able to see the world fully.
Perhaps it is the silence of mind and serenity of environ
And above all again, the strong intension to do something.

Resources are necessary but the will is supreme
Perspiration is greater than will and inspiration is still greater.
Examination is next ahead and deduction is the final
If all these are combined in a man, success is not far away.

But what stops me to do even when I require to do
Perhaps it is my inertia or my laziness.
Or my non-realization or non-respect of the goal
Then how can I become in the class of greater ones?

The path to greatness is not possible for the fools
It is more than simple even for the wise ones.
They know it is in their waking only, they can relish the goal
Stopping shall mean the death of their pursuits.

Resting a while is only to invigorate will power & physical strength
But sleeping more than minimum, will take nowhere.
Waking can only take you to the conscious state
Sleeping only adds confusion & laziness to mind and body.

Make up your mind for the loftier things
Then you will complete tasks in the hand first.
Though there are correct steps for achieving any goal
But constancy in movements brings the desired results.

So be strong, do not waver – Stop not till the goal is accomplished.
-the word from Swami Vivekananda
