Sirens of the World

We admire the real saints and sages
But are too lazy, too distracted
To follow their footsteps

Because the fair of the world enchants
Its glitter steals our attention
Makes false promises

Binding us in a thousand wishes, desires
Into a labyrinth of delusions
Captivating us like Odysseus’ sirens

We should close our ears and eyes….

Wishes of the five elements

We direct our attention
To the high waves of life
Watching for auspicious wishes
Burning with desire
Building castles in the air
Finally stranding at our destination
Caught in the magic of such wishes
In short-lived ectasy
Only to release the anchor again
In the ether of time
On the waves of hope and happiness
Focusing on new lands
Where milk and honey flow

Wishes are like footprints on the seashore
They fade in the waves of coming and going
They keep forcing new wishes upon us
Just to catch a little happiness

This is not the immaculate happiness of life
Our soul searches for, for lasting happiness

Our mind copies the longing of the soul
For that eternal happiness
It chases from wish to wish
Remains trapped in the outside

Blessed are those who are desireless….

Hall of mirrors

We are all subject to the same behavioural pattern
Does it not then stand to reason
That we all come from the same source?

The sunbeam belongs to the sun
And the soul to God

Yet we are all prisoners
Of our own desires and needs

This world is like a hall of mirrors
It throws back everything our ego creates….

Sleeping desires

 

 

Our desires sleep
Like flower seeds in desert sand
As soon as the first rain comes
They awake and bloom…
