Why Meditate


Is exercise or quitting smoking good?  This is not just a new wave of wellness paradigm but a change that is sweeping the world. Remember this, very few people wake up without an alarm. That alarm clock is ringing all over the world. You can only put it on snooze for so long. Or you can wake up.

A regular meditation practice is the first step in responding to the alarm and waking up. And waking up is not some complicated step, it is letting your true self shine through. I am sure you have come across people who have this ease about them and peace that resonates through. You are witnessing the truth. For some, it comes naturally, for the rest of us we have to do something. That something is not to acquire. You can't get it in a store or read in a book. It is a process of losing a whole lot of stuff. If you carefully look at yourself , you see millions of stories in everything we say or in the ways we act, even in the ways we sit or relax. This all happens because your body mind has picked up habits. Meditation is learning how to relax out of these habits. And just as we picked up these habitual stories that cloud over our true self, a regular mediation practice replaces them with a habit of self abidance, staying as true self, initially for some time and eventually all the time.

I Child

 It is I child
It is I child that suffers
Not the lump of flesh n bones Not the hunk of a frame
Not the calm presence.
It is I child that pines To crawl back home To mother's lap
To love and peace.
It is I child that's abused By loud world
LuringI to fun and frolic, sex and wine
Power and fame Wealth and prosperity
Words and songs, Oh happiness.

It is I child that mimics Images I sees
Suave and expert The cool gang.
It is I child that cries Feeling inadequate Despondent and morose I must end this pain.

It is I child that wants
Desperately to run home
 But there is no one there
Vines of time pervade.

Nothing but memories
Only the sensations
of womb, warm, comfort, love
Yet more fantasies.

It is I child that dies
With each step forward
With each breath of stale air With each drink of putrid wine.

Save this I child
 Before you save the world
Build an empire
Or find happiness.
