Poem: The Tree The Moon The Man
 
 
 

This week has mainly been an effort to put in the number of mandatory flying hours needed to become a licensed heli-pilot. Looks like my schedule will not allow that within this visit to the USA. But, I managed my first cross country flight to Atlanta and back, with heavy clouds and a bit of rain that was challenging, and exciting keeping the craft at the treetop level in low visibility for quite some part of the journey.

The Shambhavi Initiation went off with great guns in Atlanta. Cramped for time but the eagerness with which they all participated was very touching. Many of them had traveled from various places in the country and quite a few from across the borders. The magic and the blessing of Shambhavi are touching more and more. It is my wish and my endeavor that every human being should have one drop of spirituality. And that is the only insurance that human beings will not use their capabilities enhanced by the tech-power against all life on this planet.

Today is the Buddha Purnima, that momentous full moon night when Gautama blossomed into a Buddha.......

The Tree The Moon The Man

A prince wrapped in the folds
of regal pleasures and platitudes

Stung by the pain of ignorance
leaves all that a lesser man would cherish

The power of princehood, comfort of palace
warmth of a loving wife and joys of an infant son

The scourge of ignorance sears his mind
that he chooses to beg than be a Baron

The barrenness of not knowing
transforms into striving extraordinaire

The flower of knowing could not be denied
to the one who was a burning longing

The coolness of the full moon
An appropriate setting for the flowering

That cooled and quenched...
'O the blossoming of Knowing

Love & Grace

Jaggi, it is amazing to see that you are really learning & mastering the machine too.... Just goes to show that for a man who conquers the inner, conquering the outer is only a child's play.....

Pranams to Dear Sadhguru, inspired by his poems here is a childlike attempt...

Take me under your wings

Immortal being that flies into timeless hyperspace
Takes to the skies to log limited hours...!

Sakhya muni walked across the country
Sadhguru flies across the land
instruments are different
intent is the same...
Miles to go before I sleep...?
Miles to fly before everyone’s awake!

Teach a man how to fish? Dear Sadhguru
You teach my how to fly...
Please take me under your wings
Take me to my escape velocity...
I don’t mean in your metallic dragon-fly!!

In another 20-25 years, if we don't turnaround, life will be pushed to horrible sufffering, you have said. You meant the population has to be controlled and the  way we use technology has also to be controlled. Sadhguru, how will we make this happen? Will one drop of spirituality really help these burgeoning trends? Why don't you put one mantra and change the political leadership of the world so that they all introduce tough regulatory measures?
If you cannot, what can we do?

A prince of inner wisdom living in our time
Freely sharing for those who would willingly take
Spreading the fire of the inner shrine
For this entire world to quietly remake

Sadhguru's work is no less than Buddha's effort.
