Theme: Compassion

Looking for Gautam!

Devdutt wounded a dove.
White as truth, soft downs of a child’s feet,
Looking all round inquisitively, the bird walked like
A dancer learning her art gracefully,
Oblivious of dark designs of depravity and night operators,
Not unusual in days of deprivation.
Decency buries head in sand, certainly not like an ostrich,
Game of survival demands disgraceful steps too,
Knowledge of truth unhelpful at times.
Mutilated psyche, battered body, chopped limbs
Tortured soul stir not Satan’s sentries.
Search for Gautam the compassionate starts…
Did he not save the dove from his cousin?
Did he not show power of compassion even when young?
Tormentors care not for niceties, tortured may not disclose bruises,
Scarred soul winces in pain; scalded spirit decides to depart.
Gautam on demand everywhere, every moment!

Comment ) i can't promise you that the state of things shall improve to a point of no return..but, i along with a host of other committed souls are trying to better the status has got to do with transformation of the human vehicle at the cellular level..and it involves the earth's aura and energy grid..

This amnesia of human birth is really getting on to me..dense physicality only allows for glimpses of your legacy and the past..

The most exciting part here is, most souls down here don't know why exactly they're around, but irrespective of that, still go ahead and do exactly what they came down for.

It's very fulfilling to see how you've chosen to cherish life, sharing thought, expressing the beauty of the music of life..

I read your Krishna post too, and :) m/ :) , who would disagree? except Radha Rani ;)

Love, Cheers..
