We do not know for sure
But we have been here before
Many a lifetime, countless
At our inconsistencies we fret
Many births to take as yet
Let us face it! Be fearless.
What is it that governs all
That we should rise or we should fall
Are they not but our own intentions?
Emptiness, bereft of truthfulness in us we recognize
To fill it in we take on life our own size
We have chosen it! Us the Universe never shuns.
Of physical suffering, or emotional turbulence
Embraced all with complete acceptance
Fills us with a new found Joy that we will never be let down
Miracles are indeed in the making
Our mindsets if we see it breaking
Be yourself, feel the Bliss, never wear a frown.
A woman or a man
A beggar or of a respectable clan
Imbibe in each role , new, rich experiences
None is high, none is low
Progress maybe fast or slow
Time and space is stretched to infinite expanses
The face of this earth many times has changed
For us all this has been arranged
We never cease to pay again and again our visits
Illusion so make believe, we forget our Karma
We give in to the worldly drama
Alas! Suffering is learning the hard way that we indeed are Free Spirits
