Try.

TRY to be a sheet of paper

with nothing on it.

BE a spot on the ground

where nothing is growing, where something might be planted,

a seed, possbibly, from the absolute. (rumi)

Tao couplets

Usually they stop to the first couplet but here’s the rest, even more beautiful and enduring!

1. It is wisdom to know others;

It is enlightenment to know one’s self.

2. the conqueror of men is powerful;

the master of himself is strong.

3. it is wealth to be content;

it is willful to force one’s way on others.

4. endurance is to keep one’s place;

long life it is to die and not perish.

Krishna & the Chinese New Year of the Cow

 

Here is a short extract from Bhaja Govindam by poet Adi Shankaracharya. One of the Holy names of Shri Krishna, who has extensive control on the ability of the humankind to be collective, is Govinda.

Worship Govinda who is supreme bliss, who is the protector of the world, who made his advent in the world as Gopála through his lilá, who is the protector of the race (of Yádavas) and of cows, who made the cowherds happy by lifting up through his lilá the Govardhana mountain were the gopès used to play, whose name “Govinda” is uttered clearly by the cows (or scriptures), who has may names, and who is beyond the reach of the ignorant.
Worship Govinda who is supreme bliss, who was present in each of the different groups of gopis, who appears in different forms, who is one and nondual, whose beautiful form was covered by the dust raised always by the hooves of the cows, whose blissful nature is realized by sraddhá and bhakti, who is unimaginable, whose existence is known to the wise, and whose greatness is like that of the gem cintámaïi

i want to sleep in the eternity of the youth

with flat huge rocks for bed

and the wind constantly blowing on my skin

Then i will wake up only to see glitterin particles of gold and silver

departing from my pores and gently flying towards the trees and the sky

Verses in marathi

Marathi is a marvelous language, the more you will speak it the more your subtle system will open and strenghten. The cell of your body do know marathi already at a level of pure knowledge.

Bramha Shodhile, Bramhand. Mirlale.

Ai, Tujhiya Dhami

Janmojanmachi Punyayi Az. Ali Majhiya Kami

Ai, Tujhiya Dhami

I was searching for Divine vibrations/Mother, on Your doorsteps/All the accumulated righteousness of many a birth has today been put to proper use/Mother, on Your doorsteps…

If you love somebody set them free

If you love somebody, set them free

 

If it’s a mirror you want, just look into my eyes

Or a whipping boy, someone to despise

Or a prisoner in the dark

Tied up in chains you just can’t see

Or a beast in a gilded cage

That’s all some people ever want to be

 

If you love somebody, set them free

 

You can’t control an independent heart

Can’t tear the one you love apart

Forever conditioned to believe that we can’t live

We can’t live here and be happy with less

So many riches, so many souls

Everything we see that we want to possess

(Chinese) Song of the Good Man

The good of the Chinese soul is translated with the desire of being together, working together, doing things together, helping each other. Chinese have this gift to teach to all humanity, this should be printed in our cells. They are such a cool example for all of us. A simple folk lyric goes:

da he xiang dong liu wa
big river flow towards east
tian shang de xing xing can bei dou wa
stars in the sky pointing north
shuo zou zan jiu zou a ni you wo you quan dou you a
say go let’s go,you have, I have, all have
lu jian bu ping yi sheng kong wa
something unfair, help each other
gai chu shou shi jiu chu shou wa
if it’s time to help, stretch the hands to help
feng feng huo huo chuang jiu zhou wa
braving travelling around the nation

Bouquet called Universe

I want to smell like roses, lilies, daisies and fresias…

All the flowers of the whole world

I want to become fresh and travel in the air

Spreading everywhere in the atmosphere, in the smog, in the cool air

and in the humid weather

In every place where there are breathing people

So that they can smell the flavor of my bouquet

And start dancing while following it with their nose

I want their brain get sparkles of this smell from inside out

And the neurons start moving on the fragrant notes

Of the new enlightened awareness

The pure smell of the universe

The fragrance of the One
