Where shall I be taken? The Quest Remains

Posted on Updated on


Where shall I be taken? The Quest Remains

My Quest to know

Never evaporates

Mingled in the body

Tingled by the KarmaHuman Seeing the Universe 2.jpg

Condoned ill health   

Pardoned the sinful

Forgave the graceless

Overlooked the rude

Crossing the river of Life

Where shall I be taken?

 The Quest Remains


Black Holes, Galaxies, Innumerable Universes

Thus in the vast abode

I shall dwell in peace

I do not care where

The Murderers, Dishonest, Wicked, Deceit have been taken

But am worried where

The People with Love, Truth, and Honesty sent

Countless have gone from here

Even Saints, Sufis, Sants, Rishis and Martyrs

Where shall I be taken?

The Quest Remains


 Eyes wide open nights

Black Hole Image 1In full consciousness  

Like an insomniac

Buried in the thoughts

Of after leaving this body

Make me listen a lullaby

   Make me know

So I shall sleep well

Have sweet dreams of the thought

Where shall I be taken?

The Quest Remains

    shiva I did not comment as I was searching for this song.

    it’s an old song… but it manages to raise my goosebumps every time I hear it. we are smaller than a speck in the universe… yet are so filled with arrogance. if only we could shift our focus from… I, Me, Myself to we, us and ours should we be able to find a solution to the bigger problems we all face today… the ‘aham’ has to go.

      Thanks Ranjini! Yes that song I heard, it really touches your heart. Those were the lyrics written with such a lot of meaning. I get goosebumps for most songs when heard.
      Please read my ” Greatest Musicians and Lyricists of Bollywood” it is a ‘long read’ post, you take time for that and read in instalments.
      Until we are in this body and are conscious of the body our ‘aham’ (ego) revolves around that, we cannot be we, us and ours it shall be only I, Me, Myself only.
      Therefore when we expand our self and attain a greater consciousness the self itself becomes a greater self or till more greater it becomes the Universal Soul. Then the ‘Mahavaakya’- “Aham Brahma Asmi ” comes into light.

    OMG Shiva this is fantastic! It matters not where you are taken as you shall dwell in peace. Where others have gone and been sent is of no concern to you. Do not stay awake at night wondering, hoping for the answer, just be filled with happiness and joy and you will enjoy wherever you are taken. I absolutely love the end “You are here”…genius!! Brilliant post.

    Hello Shiva, thought I’d pop by and see how you were doing. Glad to see you are alive and well. Still writing your creative and inspiring posts and still garnering wonderful responses.
    I hope you are taken to heaven and will enjoy the splendour and safety of God’s Kingdom. I wrote the following post: https://apurposedrivenachiever.wordpress.com/2016/02/12/paradise-lost-or-paradise-regained/
    I hope you and your friends will check it out. 😃
    P.S.: I need you to tell me how to re-publish my posts. I can’t find the tips you gave me earlier this year.

      My Dear Lady why do you hope that I will be taken to Heaven, make sure that I will be sent there in His kingdom. Wont you recommend me to him pleaseeeee…
      I have opened another tab to read your recommended post and I am reading it, shall comment there, it is good you put the link, so that reader could go there directly.
      Regarding how to Re-Publish, here it is…
      You go to the post You want to republish, there on each of the post you find written ‘Edit’ on the right hand corner bottom of the post. Click on that, the post opens for you to edit. On that page you shall find ‘Update’ on top right side corner in Blue just beside that is another small square in blue click on that, the calendar opens and says the date you published the post , say 10th March 2016 , now scroll the calendar to the present date that you would want to republish say today April 23rd 2017, then the time you want to publish, see how far you are away from the GMT the timezone it says you are so and so hrs away or before, schedule it for the time, when you schedule it for the time from the present time say after 30 mins from now it shall take it then press it as schedule and update, it shall accordingly be republished and your likes and comments shall remain intact, but the link shall be a new one, you may not bother about it unless you have given the link to many to come over there as you have done now above. You may always give the new link.
      Hope that is all set now for you Dear Ladycee.
      See you there in Heaven…..Hahaha

        Your instructions are detailed and clear and I shall try to save this comment somewhere, so I can refer to it in future if need be. Thank you so much. I would like to re-publish some of my old posts.

          It is very good to publish Older posts, I sometimes do that of my favorite ones. We always tend to see the top posts of Bloggers and neglect the older ones which are most times Gems and Jewels.
          I have read your above recommended post and have liked it but have not commented. I just do not want to give a one line appreciation on that, as it is a spiritual one and needs to be dealt delicately. I hope you understand.

            I was talking about saving the instructions about how to re-publish. When you don’t do something regularly you can forget and I don’t want to have to bother you with the same request again.

              When it comes to posts like yours I become a bit thoughtful about it and take care that I should not hurt anyone on their faith. As you have pointed out, I do not comment just for the heck.
              Lady you just do it once and you will know how… OK instead of Heart it shall sit in your mind and you start doing it anytime and like me you may tell others also….Isn’t?

      Actually we had a meeting of poets in our town today, the program was arranged for the first time of its kind.
      Some of my Poems where translated in our regional language Kannada. So first I had to read my one poem and the translated version one senior literary figure read it. Everyone really enjoyed it and expressed their appreciation like how you have done here above.
      Today was really my Day DeBorah! Your comment also includes in that.
      I am deeply moved by your comment. I saw the post you have referred in a hurry, shall visit the post leisurely.
      Thanking You once again.
