Heart Wanders…

 

 

 Clouds heap upon clouds & it
         darkens…
        I keep gazing on the far away gloom
                                of the sky, & my

heart wanders wailing with the
restless mind.

Not the flower but the Fragrance…

 

You ask me ,

 

” can you tell us what is the purpose of creation ? ”

 

 

 

 

The world has never been created.

 

It has always been here ,

 

it is eternal.

 

 

 

There is no creator of the world :

 

God is not the creator of the world …

 

 

 

 

god is the

very creative energy of existence —

 

creativity rather than a creator.

 

 

 

He is not the poet but

 

 

the poetry…

 

 

 

Not the dancer

 

but the dance….

 

 

 

 

not the flower but

 

the fragrance…
