Profoundly alone – Poem

On this Spot, Sadhguru writes a poem, offering us a rare glimpse into who he is. “Alone, as even Shiva has abandoned /me from being a companion.”

ஆழ்ந்த தனிமை – சத்குரு கவிதை

Profoundly alone

Blessed with keenness
of attention, life happened
in abundance. Smallest happenings
were immense, as after all
an Atom could be a Cosmos. All
a game of perception. As my
many lives unfolded, life
pitched up to be a torrent.
Rich and Vivid but no Small
or Big. All was thrown at me.
Flowers and Filth. Offered
sweetest of Love and Devotion
and vilest of treachery and abuse.
Regarded by the Reputed and
Rubbished by the Rascals. All
that can be and cannot be
has been mine but untouched am I.

Alone, as even Shiva has abandoned
me from being a companion
As even He has become One with
Me to leave me Profoundly Alone.

Love & Grace

The adjective 'profound' is so very otherwise this poem might sound melancholic to some of us...

There is absolutely no scope for melancholy in this state of Veda says, fear comes only when there is duality "Dwithiyaadvai Bhayam bhavathi" - Bruhadaaranyaka 1 4 2

Greetings Sadhguru
As you have written in poem. I will respond in poem.

Alone am I to search and seek for something beyond the words we speak.
The carrier of all sounds and frowns. The land of all mountains and mounds.
The silent holder of all that surrounds.
That which cannot be said. That which cannot be dead.
Ever here and always near.
Indivisible from life itself.
The only true formless form of wealth.

With enjoyment, Zezzreth Vhaorik

Wondering whether sadhguru might be leaving us soon, bit Sad guru.
