A Break.


It is a break,

A welcome indeed !

A sojourn expected,

An interval  wanted.

 

 

It is a break,

An  abstract indeed !

A desire  intended

A cut off required.

 

 

It is a break,

A reality indeed !,

A necessity proven,

A let out promised.

 

 

 

It is a break,

A fantasy indeed!

A programme asunder,

A celebration  great.

 

 

 

It is a break,

A  recourse indeed !

An illuminative repose,

A beatitude lovely..

 

 

 

A break in all ways,

A break in all dimensions,

A break in all platitudes,

Is a relaxation.

A Work Out


 Visualise the days bygone.

It keeps you from forlorn.

Recollect the days past,

It makes you renew fast.

Rewind  the  days  olden

It helps you mellow golden

Resume the days  departed,

It renders you work charted

Past decides the present,

Present leads to future.

Thus goes the workout.

A Dead Man Pays Tax.


Heard of dead man jumping up.

Heard of dead man showing movements.

Even heard of dead man getting up .

These all occurred immediately  after death

After nearly two years of his death, a dead man had paid tax for the years he was not alive.

Does it seem ridiculous?

Does it seem incongruous.?

  

To top it all, the dead man has not got the receipt  for paying tax  from the department.

Now , it is  eleven years  since he paid tax.

He has to come again to receive the receipt in person.

  

 

The executor of his will, his eldest son, who has paid, is the hero behind the cast.

Is it due to ignorance ?

Is it  a case of misappropriation of funds?

 

The catch is there.

The executor of the will and the department officials know the truth.

I assume a  major part of it has gone to the executor.

Marginal portion to the officials , who helped him to ordinate the device..

 

 

Anyhow , the episode necessitates publication, for the reason that in India , a land of God men, anything is possible.

We know of people  who conceal the income to evade tax.

I am proud , that at least there are few Indians, instead of resting in the grave, voluntarily pay tax for the period of time when they are not alive.

Is it a ghost tale?

Yes , it is a living ghosts  who is the protagonists in this unbelievable anecdote

 

The Spiritual Destination.


Lot of definitions , lot of thesis, lot of analysis, lot of controversies  engulf the word Spiritual.

Spirit is the soul.

Spirit is the innermost  consciousness.

Spirit is the divine.

Spirit reveals the mysteries of life.

These are all the deliverance of theosophists, preachers.

To an ordinary folk ,like me, spirit is none other than yourself.

Self is the magnificent synergy of  mind and heart.

Hindus believe, death  destroys the body, leaves the soul .

The soul traverses .

Then settles in the body of another.

Thus goes the theory of rebirth.

Hindus believe that there are seven lives.

Christianity puts it firmly ,that there is one life.

Islam advocates reincarnation.

The raging debates and the ranging faiths  keep us in a mire.

Religion is a guiding force.

It is a formula.

It is a hypothesis.

Learning from its analogues is essential.

Deducing our own results should be unanimous.

One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

That ,because one  person got sanctified by following certain principles ,should not be the code of conduct for the rest.

Just ,because one man got cured of his ailment, by singing a hymn in a sanctum sanctorium, need not be aped by another.

Much because one got exhilarated  by chanting slokas  ,must not be copied by a stranger.

Well, because one attained salvation, while meditating under a huge tree.,,should not induce others to do  a similar recourse.

The self should dive deep into the realms of its own thought.

The self should analyse the needs of itself.

The self should choose between that which is necessary and that which is irrelevant.

The self should deliberate on the effacement of the  ego.

The self should embrace an absolute trial to live with   contentment and peace.

I have enough.

I feel it is sufficient.

I am happy.

If the self starts feeling thus, the spiritual destination is reached.

A trip to Varanasi, a pilgrimage to Mecca, a flight to Rome , all become an unnecessary prologue., once you understand self.

Try it .

Achieve it.

Glory be yours.

 

Man Prays


Did you hear a prayer?

Do you know what it is?

It is Man’s desire.

It is Man’s wish.

 

Did you listen keenly?

Do you know  what it is?

It is Man’s  requisition,

It is Man’s  need.

 

What does man expect?

He wants all things good.

He requires all things beautiful

He loves all things great.

 

 

Why does he pray?

He does for  his welfare

He does for his promotion.

He  does for his  prosperity.

 

 

Oh ! then it is an act.

It is a pretension.

It is self-conceit.

It is anything but love.

 

 

Hmm! yes it is that,

It is  not an experience.

It is not a meditation.

It is  anything but trance.

Oh ! Is it so?

It is  not for  community.

It is not for service.

It denotes  anything but charity.

 

Lo! Well it is so.

Everything he wants to amass.

Everything he moves to assume.

It indicates anything  but earnestness

 

True !! That is Man,

That is every human..

That is every mortal ,

It focuses on anything but truth.
