Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Point of No Return

In the bottomless
Depths of despair ,
How far can you sink ,
Before you know
You have passed
The point of no return  ?

But isn’t it best
Not to know
That can’t hurt you
Any more
If you don’t
Than if you did ?

If this be true ,
I am glad
I know not

That I so much want not .

Buddha said

If Buddha said ,
“ Desires shall meet with
Frustrations “ ,
Then let him know ,
That man is born to desire
And shall not cease,
For it be so

Is the God’s will .

Creator – Preserver – Destroyer

What a fool am I ,
Or really am I ?
I know not .

Why ?
I am not .

For
What I feel ,
Many more have felt
Since the dawn of knowledge ,
Take Adam and Eve !

And this is the way
The man shall live
From here
To eternity .

To be sure
In that I was a fool –
To have donned this cloak
Of the make – believe ways
Of a super being !

And small wonder
They accepted me
The way
I made me appear to be ;

When I should have been
More humble
In accepting the call
Of my own nature .

But looking down
From across the ages ,
With a face so serene
What have you to say
O , Trimurty ?

Does the God manifest in you
As the Creator ,
The Preserver
And the Destroyer ?

And that ,
Man
Being a part of God
Shall always act

In His capacities ?

Emptiness

A certain emptiness
Fills the heart
And the vacuum

Has a heaviness
