perception deception

i am not seeing what my eyes see

am I hearing what my ears hear?

except always intercepted by you

arising between me and the world

never once did you not appear

a transparent veil tainting my world

at each sense door you arise first

presiding in all my experiences

o thou art seen!

never once have I seen the world as it is

whether within or without

as it is you I am always unknowingly seeing

insecurity? Oh my gosh! It’s you!

fear? Again I see it’s you!

happiness? Here you come again to fool me.

bondage? Surely you are the best conjuror!

the prejudices I have upon my brother

is none other than you I am experiencing

the attachment over my sister

again you make me believe in

in pursuit, I chase, over nothing

for it’s you always a moment in front

making me believe there is something

except emptiness in samsara now I see

who are you, the mastermind?

where no meaning once upon a time

meaning come to be

in tears, in joy, in fear – I’m fooled.

emancipation of you is what I wish

yet never will it ever be possible

except to see you clearly each every move

one day I Am, no longer need you.

do what is necessary, Perception

for you are but just a function

with Wisdom, penetrative

Awakening, one day, takes over you.

craving, oh! Mara I am

you will be appalled
without me around
no frills, no spice, no glamor
no excitements for you to enjoy

plain is not what you like, right?
not to mentioned “no feeling”
no fun, no meaning, no hype
no, no, please not you plea.

see, I make your life spicy
from happy lots to grieving rots
with birth fun and death a brunt
like and dislike your only run

you can’t ask for this and not another
for how then can I make you see
that life is colourful
instead, plain and meaningless?

do not forsake me
my plea to you
have me with you
and I will show you what is magic

from mightiest heaven
to deepest dark hell
from unsettling minds
to greatest tranquiilty

all within my capability to offer
a companion you can never do without
mind you, even you is my making
leaving you think you are here

see me clearly
if you can
see me dearly
otherwise

until then I remain the Maker
and you, under my reign
blind you begin, blind you will end
unknowingly under my spell.

which -ward?

it is said defilements lead downward
spiraling one into immense suffering
with unimaginable entanglements
perpetuating wrong views

it is said goodness lead upward
where pleasures are unlimited
day and night intoxicated in it
where enjoyment is all one does

it is said earthling looks forward
of what is important only in this life
caring not whether heaven or hell exist
where insecurity is their daily living

it is said deludedness look backward
enjoying what has gone
or suffering what has passed
totally oblivious now is all there is

downward, upward, forward, backward
are what all sentient beings ride on
unbeknown there is another option
far nobler than them all

some may call it inward
to opposes an outward search
but I say neither of them is true
only to realize what is already now

realization is key
of one that sees correctly
of formations the mind fabricates
endless in cycles until understood

bringing out the best* in you

it is not easy
it is near impossible
to find different ways
to articulate what is in mind
as to show you The Path
that you too can arrive
as to bring out the best in you

without that best
i know what it will be like
lost in the seas of delusion
of pains and sufferings unbearable
of continuous expectations unmet
of daily stress and unrest
till you bring out the best in you

so do bear with me a little
be patient with what is shown
many a time perplexing
and often confusing
but please do not go away
as in your mind I will find my way
as to bring out the best in you

i may not be perfect in expressing
by sheer look I may not be loving
at times with defilements in hand
to find my best may be struggling
but I do have the confidence
that I may rise above all
as to bring out the best in you

deceived not by defilement’s ploy
as yardstick to measure another
but instead, by your own mind
awareness shall be given
beyond this are for each to care
concern not others except kindness
as to bring out the best in you

i am fairly certain and sure
by every skilful pointing
that you will arrive at your best
only if we work hand in hand
sincerely in togetherness
braving the defilements
as to bring out the best in you

i am doing a part of your job
by info it will be your right knowledge
and your work is only to be aware
with right attitude and consistency
the rest is none of our concern
where wisdom will naturally arise
as to bring out the best in you

so what are we deliberating
but to seize each given moment
to develop this precious Way
where woes will slowly disappear
only to be replaced by peace
with freedom your highest goal
with the best finally arrives at your doorstep.

*right understanding (wisdom)

wisdom’s eye

This mind
This very mind
that you have identified with
as you
as yours
on what course is it manoeuvring?

Step back, step back
Be aware of its movement
be with it objectively
look at it impersonally
and you will soon notice
on what direction it takes

right here, right at this moment
forging ahead
with greed?
with aversion?
with love?
or magnanimity?

how can you not know
unless you are too busy for it
how can you ignore
unless you never care the less
how can you not realize
unless you never stood from this standpoint

until you wake up to your mind
you are unaware
its direction that it is charting
often than not
to your disadvantage longterm
though now, seemingly innocent

believe me not
neither believe who you are
look at your mind directly
unbiasedly, honestly
and you will find swarms of happenings
you never knew before

rolling out this moment
taking place is what “you” are
of engineered experiences
from mind’s formation
of vexation unnoticed
leading the way to sorrow

be mindful, be wary
of mind’s trick
projecting outward
infesting inward
only to be finally understood
by Wisdom’s Eye.

only then
rest truly exist
a new kind of happiness born
understanding a norm of life
ease a natural state
and compassion, a gifted sight.

 

awareness your wise companion

I make a plea
That you don’t forget me
Or forsake me
Though I keep vanishing
From sight
Only to appear when you recall

I don’t mean
To frustrate you
To let you down
To make you feel a failure
For that’s not my job
But the clever weaving of defilements

In fact, I am always your grace
Which you know not now
For in any one moment
Having me around
Makes significant difference
But not to your knowing yet

So do have faith in me
Give me one more chance
To show what I can offer you
Only but with your persistence
The gate of Deathlessness will open
With Wisdom coming your way

now

what now is?
time?
place?
here?
or a mere definition
of what is only real
since past is gone and future unarrived?

or is it something else?
could it be you
that now comes to exist?
without you, what is now?

so
are you in the now
or now is you?

if you are in the now
then surely now is a time
which cannot be true
since time is only man-made

if you is now
what then is you?
only by realizing “you”
now will be fully understood
(or maybe now does not even exist!)

knowing with no you

mind not you
mind no you
mind don’t know you
mind only phenomenon
of nature unfolding

a process of activities
mind is all it is
arises from causes
end due to causes
continues too because of causes

if not aware clearly
if not investigate precisely
if not understood directly
mind becomes an imaginary you

but mind is not you
mind has no you
mind don’t know you
mind just processes

so what is “you”?
no-you, really
only mere knowing wrongly
or knowing rightly
without “you” knowing.

mind your mind

lost in mind
gaga is all you dine
falling into pitiful kinds

use the mind
experience is all you find
only flirt and later pine

observe the mind
understanding awaits in line
realization will finally shine

so if you
lost in mind
you will be left in blind
use the mind
you will only whine
observe the mind
freedom surely be thine

 so please
mind your mind
knows what is in mind
so as to find
the door to
Sublime
