Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Bulleh Shah – Je Rub Milda Nahateyaan Dhoteyan

Tear down the mosque and temple too, break all that divides
But do not break the human heart as it is there that God resides.
———/
Je Rub Milda Nahateyaan Dhoteyan
Te Milda Dadduan Macchhian Nu
Je Rub Milda Jungal Phiryan
Te Milda Gayaan Vacchhian Nu
Ve Miyann Bullea Rub Unha Nu Milda
Ate Milda Daliyan Sachiyan Achiyan Nu
O Tasbeeh Baati Phair Na Baahu
Is Tasbeeh Da Ki Parhna Hu
O Jehna Apne Naal Hisaab Ne Karda
Uhde Naal Hisaab Ki Karda Hu
Ik Nuqte Vich Gal Mukdi Eh
Ik Nuqte Vich Gal Mukdi Eh
Pharh Nukta Chourh Hisabaan Nu

Unhoon Makke Jaan Di Lorrh Nahi,

Pharh Nukta Chourh Hisabaan Nu
Chadd Dozakh Gor Azaabaan Nu

Aakhe Peer Bulleh Shah Aasmani Pharhna Eh
Jehda Munn Vich Wasda Ohnu Pharya Nai
Aiwen Matha Zameen Ghisaai Da
Pa Latha Mehraab Dikhaai Da
Parh Kalima Lok Hasaai Da

Captain of thy Hollow Vessel!

I had a dream once. I saw that I was up hundreds of feet afloat in the air – in the middle of the sea.
I felt the air move aroud me and the clouds touch, but I would not realize that I could fall and would not be afraid of  falling either.
Then I saw that I am looking up from the bottom of the deepest lake, lying there in peaceful serenity. Light shining from the top right in the crystal waters where I also see this elephant in the middle that is swimming above in the water peddling its feet to reach the other side. I was fearless here as well, not afraid to drown or to die from lack of air or from the shear thrill of being hundreds of feet underwater.
While I dreamt these and many others in a similar sense of presence where the element of ‘impossible’ existed – I found myself in a sense of peace – yet all alone …
… in the impossible, having conquered the impossible – but all alone.
Are there people out there that can relate with my words, that can understand what the feeling is like and have experienced it day in and out for themselves – I wonder!
I feel like the fish that swims against the stream, that challenges tradition and finds happiness in the achievement of the ‘impossible’.

Yea soul seek thy truth
thy pleasures and thy happiness
Yea soul seek thy mysteries
thy honor and thy self
Yea soul seek thy treasures
thy wonders and thy pride
Yea soul seek thy heavens
thy hell and thy life
Yea soul tho should stand in awe of thy being
thy wish to live in thy element
Yea soul tho art the captain of thy hollow vessel
.
Feel abundant – feel free!

“REFUGE”

Written: 31 August 1996

GOD's WondersWhen the World is going round and round
Peace settles upon the ground
I feel safe – secure with all the love I can find – a life with pleasure all around.

I see the World with a different view… like a mantel that hangs above on the ceiling of move
The motion that settles my heart – peace… a lot!
I feel protected – happy – like a person with a lot of flare.
The light I find above my eyes I cannot catch it but it seems to be there

I do not move when I feel all this… I just know.
I cannot figure it out what it’s all about – I cannot say what this all says but I know that it’s there for me
For my being… for my play!

I think that I just have to live with all this and seek protection from all that’s BAD and HUGE…
Yet I know at the same time that GOD is there for my REFUGE
