Cultivating Awareness and Pizza

We are frequently reminded of what is good for us and what is beneficial for us. Sometimes we give in to a lifestyle that is not healthy for the body or the mind. When we do this, we are basically living so much in the body, that we cannot see the bigger picture.

One of the most popular sayings that I often hear is ‘eat, drink and be merry.’ To be honest, this is the most dangerous idea. If we just ate without limits, drank without limits, the only time there will be any merriness will be at one’s funeral. Therefore, balance is always needed. I often think about the times that I do give into temptation of harming my body and mind whether through food or thoughts and it is multiple times in the day.

Cultivating awareness is extremely important if we want to awaken ourselves to a higher way of living. There is a reason why the saints and sages of the past, the mystics have always guided that we think a few times before doing anything. The thinking really is another way of saying ‘BE AWARE’ and I am writing this because right now, there is pizza right next to me and the aroma is enticing but I have had my dinner.  Tonight was my first test and I think I can pass with flying colors!

Post 48 – Divine Light (Spiritual Poem)

The Divine Light is shining around me. Where is its source?

From all four corners, how can I praise this fulfillment?

 

This Light of Divinity is the reason for the darkness. Darkness is the Light.

Only the blind see it as empty but it’s treasures need the eyes of the Soul.

 

 

I asked Saints about your identity; they made you so beautiful that my eyes had become blind.

Then you silenced those Saints and my mind, only then did I realise the true beauty.

 

There is nothing more than you; and there is nothing less than you.

Nothing has to remain as nothing; within your nothing you’ve become everything.

 

If this Energy remains silent under it’s own bliss. How can it explain its secret unto you?

Don’t be fooled by the perfect story-masters. The secret has neither words nor sound; only the echo can be felt.

 

These no words have made me your lover. I entered into ‘I’ and you into ‘you’.

One with one remains as one not two. Your identity is beyond calculations is our eternity.

 

Release me from this chain called the body. Let me connect to the everlasting energy.

Don’t cause my soul to obsess over it. It is dancing for your mergence.
