the only truth I know is my own experience

Are you looking for me? April 23, 2007

Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine
rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals:
not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding
around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but

When you really look for me, you will see me
instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.

Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.

KABIR (1440-1518)

    That is so true. All we have to do is introspect. The God, according to me is the self and the conscience that rules over. We all know what is wrong and unjust. We just have to stop ourselves from doing it. No matter how easy it looks. Enough… Ra.

    Dear Axinia,

    I have beleif in God, but I believe that the causes in our life are due to our own dees. We cannot blame anyone for it. The above words are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

    It is true but we can not realise it unless until we get self realization.It is a matter beyond our feelings,understandings & knowladge.We can only be witness& enjoy the inner piece & bliss after realization

      thank you mahesh chendake, you know I often ask myself how people understand the realised souls -poets? Like Rumi, Kabir, Tukaram, Tagore, Blake, etc…

      I mean things they desacribe are so clear to everyone who is a realised soul too, but must be a beautiful mystery for a non-relized person. The states one can achieve and the vibtaions that pour down the head…all this is so “physical” that should be really experienced in order to be understood!
