NOTHING TO ADD

Jan Barendrecht


Those who visit Lord Yama* with the proper attitude,
return from him with the knowledge of surrender.
Others have to learn through practice and faith.
Faith is to know the mountain is there even if it isn't seen.

It is easy to surrender when feeling miserable.
Surrender when in a pleasant state of mind too.
It is easy to praise the Lord when feeling fine
Surrender is, praising the Lord when feeling miserable too.

It is easy to surrender when feeling deserted with no one to care
Surrender too, when amidst friends and relatives who care.
Instructed by Lord Yama, surrender is till no feeling is left.
Others have to find out by pain and experience.

Life is a movie where one is the actor.
For one surrendered, acting is done.
The knower of God knows the movie to be an illusion.
But the knower still can fall in love with another actor :>)
For one surrendered, this is impossible.
It is like disdaining one's first Love.

For one, Self is the pristine bliss without a cause.
For another, Self is never ending Love,
or Beauty unparalleled.
Instructed by Lord Yama, surrender is till no feeling is left
and one really knows what IS.

Whether in heaven, on earth or in hell,
the Fire of Love will burn everything.
Those who surrender will know what remains.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One is supposed to be surrendered when:

One doesn't know an answer to questions like "how are you doing?"

Someone is doing you a favor and you don't care, hoping it won't show on your face.

Someone is thanking you for a service and you reply with something like " thank you for offering the opportunity"

Walking in a beautiful park you don't feel beauty, only a void and you forget both the beauty and the void.

Dreaming to be walking in an unknown city, you suddenly find out to be naked but no one notices it.

Someone says something you could never agree with and all you do is ask: "do you have something to substantiate
that?"

*Yama (Restrainer) is the Hindu God of death.

you suddenly have to leave abruptly,
for the dinner invitation has just arrived,
and this friend here gives you money for the toll,
makes you a strong cup of travel coffee, and offers
a loving kiss...........and a moment plus forty five minutes later,
stepping into the dinner party, with that kiss' freshness still
lingering on your cheek, -these moments have lost their separation-
as your mother's kiss lands gently on that very same spot...

scott's reply:
"If all things succeed, that's already decreed,
And immutable impulses rule us,
Then to preach and to pray is but time thrown away,
And our teachers do nothing but fool us.
And if by hard fate, we're driven this way or that,
As the carman with whip drives his horses,
Then none need to stray, but go on the right way
Like the stars that are bound in their courses.
But if by free-will we go, or stand still,
As best Suits the present occasion,
Then fill up the bowl, and count him a fool
That preaches up predestination."

by Elisha Sylvester late 1700s Laughing
