Weekly Food For Thought


‘I’ is all there is!
‘I’ is the creation,
‘I’, the creator
‘I’ is the witness,
‘I’, the doer

*’I’ is all there is!*

The outward cosmic chaos is ‘I’,
The inward sculptor and artist is ‘I’;
Infinite obscure Brahman is ‘I’,
Rapt in aloneness, the Shiva is ‘I’;

 *’I’ is all there is!*

The frail and feeble pilgrim is ‘I’,
The temple, church and mosque is ‘I’;
Fearful passage of time is ‘I’,
Fearless blossom of love is ‘I’;

   *’I’ is all there is!*

‘I’ is a beginning before birth,
‘I’ is an ending beyond death;
‘I’ is all there ever was
‘I’ will forever be
‘I’ is ‘I’

*’I’ is all there is!*

  1. The gold has never become an ornament. You ‘see’ the gold ‘only’ when you see the ornament. The change in the form has tricked your perception. Form has a utility value and make us to like the different forms. But the real value is for the gold. The goldsmith views and values all the ornaments – new or old- as gold only. If the mouse and the Lord Ganapathi in your altar are made of gold, can the mouse have a lower value than Ganapathi in the eyes of a gold smith? The Self realized, has ‘sama drishti’ with all!
