Zen and Solitude (Magic and Alchemy)


You do not have to
embark on a pilgrimage
to attain self-realization
when the one you are
searching is sitting within you.
Make Zen, your lifestyle
solitude, your ally
faith, your armor
discipline, your mantra
scriptures, your catalyst;
Now embark on the 
magical journey within 
Keep going till 
you have the epiphany~
The Creator is in the Creation
The Creator is in you as
well as in every other Creation of his
You are one with the Universe
There is no you and I
All the rivers, no matter how different
merge with the same Ocean;
We all have come from the same Source
and will merge there at the end of time.

  3. A beautiful concept. We all come from one source and will merge at the end of time. A deeply philosophical poem.

  4. Such a wonderful message!! We all came from the same source and will merge there, so search inside to get that ultimate serenity. Loved reading this poem!!

  5. A great post to end the series...truly enjoyed reading your lovely poems, felt good throughout the series, and will look forward to your upcoming poems :)

  6. Profound wisdom to end the series. Loved all your poems in this series - full of lyrical beauty with great insights.

  7. As stated in your poem "We all come from the same source", this realization itself would calm the mind with no place for competition or envy between people. A fitting finale to the challenge!

  8. Going to the end of the world cannot help us achieve self-realisation. It's a matter of a moment or an entire lifetime. Very profound thoughts.

  9. What a beautiful, Zen way to end the challenge! Kudos, Purba! Your writing is magical and I have enjoyed travelling along with you. All the very best!

  10. This was such a profound poem and something that is quite calming as well.
