CLARITY’S RELIEF OCCURING*
I AM THE DYING ONE
THE DEATH DOULA
SOURCED IN/OF/AS CORE OF CREATION
BEYOND ALL WORDING/THINKING
The Only Problem
There is only one problem in the world – human beings.
And the only problem with the human being is
that he is unconscious and compulsive.
Whether this unconsciousness and compulsiveness
manifests itself in the form of war or a domestic situation,
it does not matter.
Whatever you wish to do,
you must bring yourself to a moment
of joy and clarity within yourself.
Why I am saying joy is because
when you are happy you are not compulsive.
at that time if you look at things and see that
“Yes, this is what is more sensible for me”
– just do that.
it does not matter if you go through hell for ten years,
you just do that,
because that is where your wellbeing is.
your mind says many things
– that is not important.
one thing in the evening;
it says one thing today and another thing tomorrow,
that is of no consequence.
if you make decisions as to which way to turn,
you will be endlessly lost.
― Sadhguru, Life and Death in One Breath
When riverside trees sparkle in sunlight,
So close in my heart their shadows fall,
Then I know
The Universe is a floating lotus
In the holy lake of my mind.
Then I know:
I am the voice within the Voice,
The song within the Song,
The life within the Life,
The light breaking through the heart of Darkness."
From "A Flight of Swans", translated by Aurobindo Bose

This song of mine will wind
its music around you, my child,
like the fond arms of love.
your forehead like a kiss of blessing.
by your side and whisper in your ear.
When you are in the crowd
it will fence you about with aloofness.
a pair of wings to your dreams.
It will transport your heart
to the verge of the unknown.
when dark night is over your road.
My song will sit in the pupils of your eyes,
and will carry your sight to the heart of things.
my song will speak to your living heart.
from "Collected Poems and Plays of Rabindranath Tagore "
