Longing to know

Post by adshanti » Wed Nov 16, 2005 7:06 am

Longing to know

In Longing
to know
My Own
Unknowableness,
separation,
which created time and space,
happened.

Listening less and less
to the silent whisperings of Ease,
and attracted by attraction,
attention started to move,
leaving Home to meet the other.

Discovering the more,
while forgetting what cannot be forgotten.
Searching for beauty and love,
only finding death and suffering.
Life after life,
trying to heal the pain of separation,
fuddled by dreams of good and better,
and hoping for illusions that last.

Avoiding every dis-illusion at any cost,
Exhausted and hopelessly trying to hold myself together.
Believing that understanding and effort would eventually
sooth the pain of living.

Hope ended in frightening helplessness and
desperate isolation.

Softly Grace whispered in the darkest of all nights
revealing Home.
Feeling utterly Blessed
I drank thankfully from the Sweet Waters of Life.

Embraced by Silence, Peace and Ananda,
I longed so deeply to stay There,
invited by Timelessness and Bliss.
Overwhelmed by the perfume of Eternity.

I foolishly believed to be Enlightenend.

Each and every time Bliss ended.
But separation survived it all.

Since the beginning of times,
pain of separation was my true
inseparable companion.

But Truth is smiling in dis-illusion.

Now....

No thing to hold on to.
No one to hold together.
No more directions to explore.

Attention free from direction,
drifting without shores,
without moorings.
Homeless and utterly empty
from 'me' and 'mine-ness',
without Being nor not-Being.
Unknowable Unknowableness.

Has anything ever happened ?

So beautiful! Thank you!

Your poems are not for casual reading (after all, who is there to read them?) they're for letting go, sinking and perhaps drowning .... in perfect bliss!
:D

With gratitude and love,
