Soul Search

O pilot of my whole being! O Soul! Spirit! Atma! O, you that leads me to the absolute Paramatma! O, I yearn to connect with you! Communicate! Converse! O, I long to touch you; feel you; in you to get immerse! I'm as weak as a jellyfish; unable to hold me, I try all the ways, to go within, like novice rishi; I explore my self - like a saintly sage - my past, present, I try my focal point; to this my energy I spend...! Do I, like greedy rich, lean on my material wealth? Or, like hypochondriac, overanxious about health? Or, as orthodox mice, raffle-rousing, terrorizing? Or energy wasted thinking of adversely acting? Now, like an alchemist, I tread into my magic lands, Like a researcher - study, synthesis, weigh wetland sands; Like a naturist, explore beauty; ponder! Contemplate! Like farmer, plow; manure; cultivate; irrigate; harvest! I examine my frequent existence; stop, look, and walk! I wait for signs from within; only inner voice I talk! I place my hands, on my heart, and question my intentions, I make my yatra within; walk moved by intuitions...! 02 January 2022

What lofty and sublime thoughts, Christuraj. At this juncture, I remember the last words of Socrates- An un examined life is not worth living. I am sure you often look inside and converse with your soul. I feel that more people should read your wonderful poems... Please give some notes on words like yatra, atma, paramatma etc as only Indians will be able to understand.
