Our Mind as a Drug

We want to feel the world, whether it's Happiness, Joy, Love and Peace, or if it's Fear, Anger, Hatred and Jealousy. Our nature is to feel what is happening; our nature is to be in the emotion when it arises. The amount of energy which arises is infinite.



And yet…



We learn from an early age to suppress certain emotions, we learn from an early age to suppress the emotions which our society declares and defines as disturbing and harming. I, for instance, suppressed the… Continue

Loving the Unknown

We all want something, anything. Wanting means we are still alive, and as long as we stay alive, we will always want something.

Most of us, when we want something, start thinking of how to get it because if we did know how to get it, we wouldn't be thinking of it, but just go and get it.

Sometimes, we find rather quickly how to get what we want and everything is fine, but when we don't we start feeling frustration after a while, sometimes we feel also anger because we don't know how… Continue

Miles of stillness



miles of stillness



here i sit in a sort of quiet stillness

Miles is caressing

tickling my consciousness

intriguing me to listen



The soothing notes of contemplative softness

releases my pensiveness

and i sigh



there are no whys anymore

pulling at me

prodding and poking me

to engage,

i am just being

the flow



the darkness i embrace . .…

love certainly



love certainly



i am conducting this pertinent search

for certainty

that i may come to terms

with this hurt in me

a place where no Sun shines

or smiles exist

where the blossoms of understanding

desists

and i know not why

i cry inside like this



you see, i see

when i look across this landscape of humanity

i see a flourishing garden of insanity

and we profane…

Three Types of Pleasure from B.Gita Chapter XVIII: 37-39 -By Swami Venkatesananda

Dear All,



That which is like poison at first but in the end like nectar - that pleasure is declared to be sattvika, born of the purity of one's own mind due to self-realization.



That pleasure which arises from the contact of the sense organs with the objects, which is at first like nectar, and in the end like poison - that is declared to be rajasa.



That pleasure which at first and in the sequel is delusive of the self, arising from sleep, indolence and heedlessness…

we had fears . . .



we had fears



there are fears that we dare not admit

hidden in the womb of our denials

the pouring forth our fears and tears

lightly dressed as smiles



insecurities and our unassuredness

and our foiled construction of esteem

yet every day we awaken to a life

where we embrace such empty dreams



be it loneliness or our indifference

from the myriad of things that touch…
