Poem: Meditation and You


Come on:

I want to encourage

You to sit alone:

Please let go of thoughts

And learn, slowly but surely,

How to transcend your brain.

 After all,

Your brain is just an organ.

Instead, I want you to

Focus on your mind, 

That is, on consciousness.

Silently, repeat your mantra.

Now, please learn

To focus on your mantra,

Whenever thoughts enter

Your mind like a wild, untamed

Elephant rampaging through

The jungles of India or Africa,

Causing death and destruction.

 Can you feel the difference

In your vibrations and energy?

After all, you are now

One with our universe.

There is no separation

In time and space,

Only this pervasive

Feeling of oneness.

Stay with that feeling

When you sit alone.

And repeat your mantra:

Aum, Aum, Aum, Aum, Aum.

Rest assured, you are now

Finally free and, one more

Thing, stranger, welcome home.
