I am so good

You should do this
  He should say that
    She should buy that
      They should sell that.

I am so good
  at what other people
    should do!

Your light

Looking at the sun
  my eyes ache
Looking at you
  radiating billions of sun of light
    my eyes are cooled
      and warmed
        and cleared
          at once.

She would come

You are good 
or bad bad 
She would come

Young 
or old
She would come

Smart 
or not
She would come

King
or servant
She would come


If only you would call

Your presence

I begged for your presence
And yet you ignored me

I cried for your presence
And yet you ignored me

I fasted, I did not sleep, I prayed
And yet you ignored me. 

I gave up and looked around
At the transparent sky
And the green leaf
And the warm sun
And the silent night. 

You were here

all the time.

The cat

The cat
Has a nap
He is happy
Just a kitty
The sleep 
Is deep

No trouble
Just slumber

The stars

The stars are beautiful 
through the window. 


To get to the stars, though, 
one needs to learn 
to fly first.

Same

Small house
Big house
What's the difference?

Big car
No car
Same trip 

Big bed
Small bed
Same sleep

T-shirt
Suit
Same me

Wouldn't it be nice

Wouldn't it be nice
if we could turn our eye around
and look inside?
Then, we would only see light!

Kids fight

Real story:

- That is not fair! I don't want to play anymore!
- I don't want to play with you anymore either!

After 20 seconds:


- Should we play something else?
- Yeah, let's play something else!

Around the world

A trip around the world
happily ends
in the place it started.
Looking forward to getting home again!

What's the use?

We want this, we want that.
  We get this and get that.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

We read this, we learn that.
  We watch this news, we discuss that news.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

We work hard to be praised.
  We spend the night to go ahead.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

We argue a lot, we complain a lot.
  We gossip a bit, we throw a fit.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

Live in the moment and get rich

Living in the present can make financial sense.

Consider the following scenario: you want to purchase a service that will cost you $10 per month (for example, Apple Music or Google Music) and you plan to use it for 5 years.

If you are living in the moment, right now, the cost of the service is $10. That's about it.

But if you are a person who is thinking about the future a lot, you will realize the service will cost you 5 years x 12 months x $10 = $600.

Making a simple calculation, living in the present will bring you a quick profit of $590.

There!

Enjoying the present moment is good for you!

The door

I knock at the door.

The lock is on the other side so there is little I can do but sit and wait.

One day, you will come and open the door.

Trip to the ocean

How much more
do you think
we still have?

Not sure.

But I can feel
the breeze
of the ocean
on my face.

I am closer
than yesterday

That is enough.

If you are ready

If you are ready,
He will come.

If you are not,
He will not.

That simple.
Stop whining!

Only then

Thousands of words I tried to sing for you, but there was no response.

I closed my eyes and bowed down and touched your feet.

No words, no song, just silence.

Only then you noticed me.

not much

I think I did not accomplish much
in this life
said the husband
to his wife
after they all had dinner
and he tucked the kids to sleep.

His wife smiled...

Travelling to the temple

Travelling to the temple
On the mountain
I step on the bricks of the road
Each brick is helping me go forward
I realize that
Each brick is placed there
By somebody else

Life is hard

Life is hard.
We only have air, water, food, house,
people around and music.
How can you live like that?

Paintbrush

I am so proud
Of the paintings I created
Said the paintbrush
Forgetting the artist

the seed

How can I become a beautiful flower?, the seed asked.

Just let the water falling from the skies grow you.

How can I help?

Just enjoy the beauty of sky and be thankful for the water.

Which way?

Sitting in my car, I am planning for the trip.

I check the weather conditions.

I look up the address.

I study couple of maps, but they are contradicting each other.

I read all about other people experience with the trip.

I think a lot about what is the best way to go about it.

After long time, I am still in the parking lot. I did not move an inch.

I look at my master who is waiting patiently on the back seat, smiling: "Just start the car, I'll show you the way!"

the travellers

Tirelessly one looks for the path and when the way is found there is no time to waste, no effort to spare walking it.

The sun is shining, the wind is blowing, the rain is raining unknown, unheard, unnoticed while the traveller is walking the path.

As no end is reached and no result is gained, the traveller looks around and sees thousands of other travellers that, just like him, are walking their path.

He offers a helping hand to others return the favour. Thousands of travellers are waking together now and only so the end of the path is reached.

Travels

I left everything to find you
Travelled the continents and
The sees
Tired I returned home
And there you were
Inside my house
Inside my heart

I am important

I am proud
I think I am important
But I cannot find you

I am humble
Now I can see you
And realize
That I am important

Nov 12, 2015

Should I?

When in doubt
Ask this:
Will the world be a better one if I should?
If not
Then you shouldn't

Happy?!?

Happy?!?
No
Why? What is it you want?
This...
Here you are...
Happy?!?
Still, no!
Why? What is it you want now?
This ...
Here you are...
Happy?!?
Still, no!
Why? What is it you want?
I want what you want!
Here you are...
Happy?!?
YES!!!

one day

just like the leaf
pushed by winds
eventually falls on Mother Earth
so am I
still flying on the wind of my thoughts
going to find the way back to you
when you wish me to

Oct 31, 2015

My contribution

When I finally reached you
And looked back
You were always guiding
and helping
and comforting

- What is it that I did?
- You desired to come to me. That was enough!

Unlearning

- Teach me about You, said I.

- First you need to unlearn all you know about me.

I did that, it was not easy.

- Done, said I.

- Now forget all you think about me.

Even more difficult.

- Done, said I. I have not thoughts about You, nor do I know anything about You.

You did not say anything, but I realized that
what was left was You.

So lonely

so lonely, said a raindrop
falling among infinite others

two kids

Two kids were travelling on a train. Being summer, the air got a bit hot. 

One of them said:

- Let's open the window!

- For what, nothing good will come out of it!

But the first kid did open the window. 

- Come, come, feel the cool breeze blowing outside!

- You are just imagining things!

- No, no, no. The air is blowing, I don't know why, but it is. It is cooling my face and my whole body. 

- There is not such a thing as air. Show it to me and only then I will believe you. 

- Well you cannot see it, but if you just take your head out of the window you will also feel it. And also you can see incredible beautiful things outside. 

- Just let me be. I'll better have a nap!

Am I important?

My Lord, am I important or am I not?

My son, you are important and at the same time you are not!

How is that possible?

Just look at the tree over there. One leaf is not really important. But when combined with the other ones, they give shade, they give oxigen, and together with tree they feed families for years and years.

I want

I want the sun to rise
by itself
I want the moon to shine in the night
by itself
I want the rain to water the lands
by itself
I want the wind to blow and cool the summer days
by itself
I want the crop to grow
by itself
And the forest to clean the air
by itself

But, I want to be in control

Unexpected poem of titles...

you cannot
little water drop
beautiful
the way
silence
who do you think you are
trying
are not
thinking
freedom
the fastest path
the sun
what you are
you get
winter
if the rain would stop
bad event
new job

Jul 29, 2015

You cannot

- Lord, I would like to know myself
- You cannot

- I would like to find the purpose of my life
- You cannot

- I would like to become enlightened
- You cannot

- Lord, I would like to come closer to you, be one with you
- You cannot

- But what is it that I can?
- Just knock at the door!

- But the door does not have any handle
- It does, on the inside...

Little Water Drop

Water Drop was upset
A bit of ink changed its colour
What to do, how to be clean again
As she was at the beginning of times?
The ink was the worse that could happen
Such a terrible thing was happening
To her
She asked other drops
And all had ideas and wisdom and rules and methods
And she tried them all
But then she noticed that none of them
Was cleaner than herself
If they cannot clean themselves
How can they teach me how to do it?
Tired, she just stopped trying
She let it go
Slowly she fell into a stream of water
And hoped that by this it would become clean again
But alas, the stream united with other streams
And none of them were cleaner
The speed increased
The stream became a small river, then a river
Speed increased and increased
Water Drop was just taken by the water current
No more she was in control
No more could she do anything about it
At times she was sorry for trying to get clean
Among infinite others drops
She was not herself anymore
She was not cleaner for sure
On the contrary
The speed increase and increased
Up in the air sometime, at the bottom of the river some othertime
Water Drop hoped this would finish soon
And it did
The Ocean received Water Drop
There was no speed
Just the slow movement of the waves
And Water Drop noticed that
The cursed ink disappeared into the ocean
All that was left of her was the crystal pure water
And she saw infinite other drops
That, just like her, were in pain on the trip
Now just like her, were enjoying the ocean
Those droplets were now one with the ocean
And one with her
And then her life started...

beautiful, majestic, unclear
dancing in the water

the way

From my house to the bus,
the way is like this:
turn left
then left
then right
then left
then right
then straight for a while
then right
and right
and left ...

complicated?

not really
because every turn
was explored
at a time
and enjoyed
for a while

what if I asked my master
in the beginning
and he told me the way?
no use

silence

the tree is growing
into the silence
the sun is dawning
into the silence
the stars are dancing
into the silence
noise is outside
and so is inside
going nowhere
just moving in circles

who do you think you are

who do you think you are
you think you are very important
that the whole world was built for you
that everything through the day is there just for you
that the whole universe is moving around you
you think God is caring about you every second
and angels are there to protect you every step you take
you think nations depend on you
is that what you think?
really?!?

well you are right...

trying

trying to find me
I tried to find You
I looked in the books
and churches and dreams
outside and inside
in the past, present and future
but you were not there
then I gave up
You knocked at my door
Who's there I asked
It is you, You said
And then I found You
and I found me

are not

The eyes are not for seeing
The ears are not for hearing
The mouth is not for saying
The hand is not for touching
The brain is not for understanding
For all that
There is the heart

thinking


the way
to think straight
is to stop thinking
altogether
