Poem: The Song (Geeta)
In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru pens a new poem about dissolving oneself and living life as a song. Sadhguru writes, “A hollow bamboo can turn the passing Wind / into a Sweet Song./ One filled with his Own Sap will be mute and dumb / When all of Creation laughs and Sings.…” Enjoy!
 
 
 
 

The Song (Geeta)

A hollow bamboo can
turn the passing Wind
into a Sweet Song

One filled with his Own
Sap will be mute and dumb
When all of Creation laughs
and Sings.

If the hum of life’s Sweet Song
has to be heard, empty. Empty
yourself of yourself.

The Sweetness, the Melody, and the Fragrance
of the Divine Song shall be You.
When you let yourself be absorbed
into the Master’s Will.

Love & Grace

Let me be a hollow reed in Your hands then

That you may blow and sweet tunes flow
And all that I thought that was me
Let it melt , vaporise and into the ether go
When Shiva Himself calls who dares to refuse ???

Sadhguru!

Anything and everything that flows either from your pen or from your speech, is unbelievably spectacular, sweet, devastatingly logical and absolutely truthful. Time and again I am reminded that YOU are the ONE.......

Pranams Sadhguru, I've been practising kriyas for the past five years, I could sense many changes in my perception and awareness but i've not reached an ideal level but nowadays you are always in my thought, my inner voice keep on utters 'Sadhguru' . I know there is a very long way for me to go "miles to go" what shall i do, you lead me.

Bowing down to you shambho... Generous are your ways.. Watchful is your grace..
Whether AM near or Far .. All that is There is only your grace.. Tears roll down.. Heart Sings ur name.. Hands raise with love.. Being comes to ur feet.. Is there anything else that remains me.. Nay..

Is there is an escape from you sadhguru?

Oh my dear guru! What a man you're to make a human being to reveal himself, and to take a graceful path throughout his lifetime. I dedicate this message to a master who becomes a soulful presence within me!

Sadhguru has changed my life in many ways. This, however, feels like one of the most powerful messages for me. I went for many years, taking a very aggressive approach to my life and my career. I was, in many ways, vicious but very successful - however, not happy. Now, however, as compassion has crept into my life, I have found myself raging inside - just as Sadhguru describes. And, there seems nothing to be done about it. We are having an election here - but I don't seem to have a choice that cares about fairness, and the welfare of people in general. The world seems so unfair - and impossible to change. I have nearly stopped watching the news at all, in an attempt to control the rage that develops when I hear what is going on. People kill children, let them starve when they have plenty - how to process that?

I still have that rage, and I still don't know how to process that internally but, I feel much better that Sadhguru also felt that rage, that there is not something abnormal or wrong about me.

Still seeking but feeling better about it.

pranam sadhguru,
Every man is naturally interested in materialistic wellbeing, spirituality doesn’t happen that way. Even when we understand the importance of spirituality why the materialistic aspects of life holding on to us. No, actually we don’t drop it. Because we can’t simply drop it. Some deep-rooted desires doesn’t just go away, is the karma so strong?, so for people like us does the spirituality also asks permission from Karma??. Is it not possible to dissolve trouble and be little peaceful to go spiritual, how to sustain spirituality with nagging troubles of life........sadhguru please bless us to pass through, some troubles are totally beyond our understanding and reach, mind boggling, it sits right on our shoulders, how do we meditate with that pain upon us, please bless us all.

Sadhguru, I too feel I have become conscious ,sensitive. The anger in me explains the lack of enlightenment. I too feel it is a horrible state and sometimes passes of onto people around me. When will the coolness of enlightenment enter my being ????

great poem sadhguru. i am speechless...

5 years ago

I remember listening to this poem the day it was posted... and has been resonate-chanting within until now... What a powerful and gentle image and feeling of this being empty and fulfilled at same time... Thank you, Sadhguru... , thank you to all the webmasters at Isha who make this available and and created the tool to generate all the info so it came up again in the "popular" box and of cause every single one who liked it so much it appeared there... Thank you, Sadhguru, it is also because of your posts that Wednesday is a special moment in time inviting us beyond...
