Folks - whose? yours, mine or Universal / Cosmic?
by the doc
Age Group: Adult
I consent to
empowered overinflated negativities in life
the beggar can’t contempt himself
the lazy can’t loathe himself
the covetous can’t curb himself
I consent to
the reign of devastation
unhappy activity by castrated wills
grunting with brutes...
I consent to a cursed life
disgust personified, deceiving intentions
Missed again....what a pity, needless to say
Missed Call is a bollywood film...
Hence, a grand old saint called Kabir mentions
do not ever consider a peck of stardust or plain dust
before it falls into your eyes, it is nothing
but after it enters your iris, your vision
benevolent or malevolent
He also advises not to fall into the trap of
asking foolish questions to true saints
about their age, caste, race, belief, birth or past history
in lieu of all that mundanities, it is preferred
if you pursue them with a genuine urge to know
this is the true professional calling for looters and robbers
the Divine Names of any Cosmic Kid or Force or Energy..
for what is the use of digging a well
when the house is on fire [i repeat this proverb endlessly]
seems the simplest things take long to be understood..
besides if half of the life given
whether you like it or disapprove,
the given remains the eternally changeless given
can you choose your folks?
but you can definitely adopt orphans...
know when to say yes or no or saw or raw
for as you sow so shall you reap
do you expect mango trees to blossom if you plant roses?
well if you do
and you can
either you are a magician worth of omnipotence
easier to believe is you are celebrating
april fool a little early
or else you painfully regret the fact that logic sustains...
that to admire the fragrance of a rose
is different from eating mangoes
lovin you as usual
