……….in this stupid body

Posted on Updated on

……..in this stupid body

Baby in the WombIn the womb, with the smallest legs in this world

Kicking right & left

Giving all the pain & pleasure too

Growing there as fast & wanting to come out

Crying came out & showering happiness all over

Received kisses from elderly girls, women & men too

All carried here & there like a ball in their hands

As if the ball being a symbol of love & cuddling

Hugs & hugging went on for long

Playing PicPlay & games was in the routine

Then came schooling & the mates

Went on getting education & knowledge too

Earning for a living & have a family too

Apart from the legs, hands & body there is a mind too

This mind dreaming of necessary & unnecessary things too

Some have come true & some have not

Deriving pleasure & happiness for the senses

Man in the tunnel of lifeBeing the order of the day, this & everything else

Days & years passing by, realising now as to what to do

Forgetting the past & remembering a little too

The body having trillions of cells & ofcourse living in that too

 Millions daily taking birth & billions dying too

So makes this body old & not as before

Seeing other older bodies helpless & hopeless

Question arises… & this body also going to be one so

EYE IN BROWN COLORThe thought makes one frighten & shivering too

The body would not permit & allow too

Blinking the eyes to open & to see life has gone by

To wish & work like before

To accomplish & to attain as dreamt

Life goes on & on  

I Image croppedWho is this? Thoughts pouring now & then

Thinking got the answer….. its I ……. in this stupid body.

These thoughts and sentences came to me, when I think of realising the self.

“Self-Realisation” is you are not the body; you are the SOUL a part of the UNIVERSAL SOUL.

The school of thought of “Advaita” which proclaims that all is one and there is no second.

Everything is that Universal Soul and the Individual Soul is “Aham Brahma Asmi”,

“I am thou that”.

……and I am “Sat Chit Ananda Swaroopi” , “Nitya” & “Pari-Poorna”.

I am the one _ manifested, I am the Bliss, I am was & is forever, I am not divided and I am complete.

    Interesting. I’ve never heard the term “universal soul”. The last sentence reminds me of a verse from the Bible., Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

    Outstanding! Our very substance is within “this stupid body” and should be cared for and nurtured just as much and even more than we take care of the physical.

    The physical journey is taken by the body, but the soul is the authentic self that chose the body in which to take this journey. The soul has been here before and will come again…all a part of the Universe…hence The Universal Soul! Love this Shiva… 🙂

    Life goes on…
    Simply brilliant and logical phenomenon of the human world. Well done for summarizing the human cycle as a short version of poem. The germ of My Theory lies in every one you and me.
    You should give a glance to The Idea behind My Theory for better understanding of My Theory.

    LOVE THE PRESENTATION. But I, being a Christian, come to the glories of God’s wonderful creation…by which his only Son came to visit. Bravo to you for making me praise my God in this wilderness! 🙂
