The Inward Journey

By Ashok Suri

The Inward Journey

With a hymn I bring 
My wandering mind to a halt.
As I close my eyes,
Peep and delve deep, 
I am surprised to see a sage-like being 
Seated in my heart.

O, it’s the effulgent soul,
Brimming with peace --
My happiness knows no end,
My anxieties cease.
It seems as if I have put down 
The burden of centuries.

Calm and quiet,
Like the starry skies,	
I see the walls built by my ego fall.
A wave of fresh energy rises.
I never thought
This inward journey would show me 
Where true bliss lies…

Profound !! You are a ‘sthit prajna’ person . A person who is unshaken by heat and dust , pleasure and pain , happiness and sorrow. Nothing can disturb your equilibrium as you have found peace in the core of your existence . Remain in peace Sir🙏
