arunachala… an intended pilgrimage unto the enlightened void
life has a manner of passing by,
where seeking and striving are deep conditioning.
in the enthusiasm for results,
the beauty of the journey often missed.
spirituality… another mind game
where striving to moksha, a high-end pursuit.
the shortest routes in the fastest time,
is the most favored way.
I had intended to be on a pilgrimage
with a similar chaste desire.
in a meditative moment, an awakening dawned.
in the ambiance of Arunachala,
beneath the gaze of Ramana,
all I need to do
is to surrender in silence
and be open to receive.
no striving, reaching or even talking,
only ‘being’ is the qualified way.
so, I’ll come to you
and partake of your enlightened void
