    Why am I here?

    This poem I wrote, applies to all us reiki people...we are into giving all of us.....please read about yourself :-

    Sometimes sitting in a thoughtful mood,
    I ask myself my purpose here,
    Searching within for an answer good,
    the reply of which is not very clear.

    When i sit in a thoughtful mood,
    I ask again who am I?
    Searching within for an answer good,
    i get an amazing reply.

    Then i ask pondering over my life,
    wanting to know what lies ahead.
    Looking within there is always strife,
    between the self good and bad.

    I still ponder about my fate.
    and the answer I get from within me,
    You have time and so wait,
    future unfolds slowly to be.

    Then I think about trying situations,
    wondering why it was always me.
    We are but prisoners of our actions,
    that culminate in us facing tragedy.

    As I continue to meditate more,
    understanding of giving of different stuff.
    Anyone can give of materials things and score,
    the real giver* is one who gives of himself.

    I continue to ask within and pray,
    why I came here and where will I go?
    The answer comes as a flashing ray,
    giving me glimpses of what l should do.

    Suddenly everything becomes very clear,
    my time here will be done one day.
    With clarity I see the ending and hear,
    leaving the body my soul will fly away.

    I am just passing time here learning,
    lessons that I did not properly learn.
    After my lessons are learnt of giving,
    my soul to stars and heaven will return.

    * The chapter of ’giving’ in the book, ‘The Prophet’ written by Khalil Gibran

    Hi Renu

    That is quite a deep and profound poem!

    It seems particularly apt after having just watched a TV programme in which scientists explained how our concept of everthing that there is developed from just our own world, to the solar system, to the milky way to the billions of other galaxies etc. (so your image was also very apt!)

    However, one thing they still can't answer is that if, as it appears to be, the universe (i.e. everything) is expanding at an accelerating rate, what medium is it expanding into? scratch

    Thanks for sharing!
    Very Happy

    renu, Another beautiful posting.

    Kahlil Gibran - much of your pain is self chosen. It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
