The Absoluteby Sri Chinmoy (Chinmoy Kumar Ghose)
Original Language English
No mind, no form, I only exist;
Now ceased all will and thought;
The final end of Nature's dance,
I am it whom I have sought.
A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;
Beyond both knower and known;
A rest immense I enjoy at last;
I face the One alone.
I have crossed the secret ways of life,
I have become the Goal.
The Truth immutable is revealed;
I am the way, the God Soul.
My spirit aware of all the heights,
I am mute in the core of the Sun.
I barter nothing with time and deeds;
My cosmic play is done.
|-- from My Flute, by Sri Chinmoy|

For today, a meditation on the Absolute.
I won't say much about this poem because, when contemplating the Absolute, the fewer words the better. But I will just say that these few rhyming verses say a lot. Worth reading a few times... and then falling silent.
