Poem: Fortune

In this week's Spot, Sadhguru pens a new poem from iii where a three-day Sathsang and Pournami Pooja was held for over 700 meditators from all over North America. In his new poem "Fortune", Sadhguru reminds us why we have take up the spiritual path, and inspires us to move beyond a life in pursuit of fortune. "Fortune is not found by/ the diggers of gold or by those/ who scavenge the marketplace". A slideshow from the three-day event at iii is also included. Enjoy!
 
 
 
 

”Fortune”

Fortune is not found by
the diggers of gold or by those
who scavenge the marketplace

Fortune is not theirs who dive
into oceans to find what those
before them could afford to lose

In search of fortune, the pittance
that has enslaved too many lives
Bodies bent in search of fortune
Minds filled with madness of fortune
Souls enslaved in search of fortune
Lifetimes gone by in pursuit of fortune

It is in giving away what the slaves
of fortune value, One becomes fortunate

Fortunate are those who are blessed with giving
Fortunate are those who have lost need to hoard
Fortunate are those who do Shambho’s bidding
Fortunate are those who mingle and merge in Him

Love & Grace

Fortunate are those who have found You
And the ones You chose too
Leading them from the lanes of false glitter
To the less traveled lane of truth brighter
That some may experience and share their gain
With other suffering brethren in real living pain

Because of this slavery for furtune within, whatever they see, they are able to measure only in terms of it! what slices my ego is the way you are yet on this pursuit to reform this mad crowd including me Sadhguru..At times, I wonder if one can pursue the spiritual path being amidst this madness around, Sadhguru..whenever I feel disheartened your efforts and your conviction in this direction inspires me and makes me feel that I am an idiot as to me indicates that I still need to shed more and more of myself, Bless me to do that Sadhguru...that is all what I seek..I want to reduce to nothing and yet be full!!

With a clap of Your hands

Tears overflow in bliss
Humanity disappears

There was a poem that Sadhguru wrote on the last day of the Sathsang. The poem ends with the lines, "Choose, my Beloved, to be an ocean of devotion". Can any of the volunteers or devotees from the Tennessee ashram please post that poem? It would mean so much to me. It was truly a wonderful poem.

SADHGURU it is a DHAMAKA poem. I ceased to exist as I coursed through the poem and felt the mingling and merging in YOU by the time last line exposed itself to the eyes. WOW every aspect of you is simply throwing me into emptiness. DANDAVAT PRANAAM.
