The hours of Self-revelation

Forging the weakest link of the Chain

So frightened, so scarred, not seen before,

It was time to lead from the front,
But he was faltering & wavering from the Core,
Where had the Adventure riding rough waves gone,
Where was the person daring, 
Who seeked the challenges unknown?

Wondered the near & dear ones at their Ideal,
What was paralyzing the giant - a fact unknown? 
How was the mighty presence getting questionable?
The rough, the tough, the hero shivering like a Leaf.

Came the light within, when the tempest was gone,
It was the Truth simple, a fact not unknown,
Repeated every time, with all small or Great ones,
When, the most vulnerable spot is operated,
And the weakest link of the Chain forged,

These are the painful moments of Self-revelation,
Naked Truth in front, nothing to hide, all bare,
The World mere spectator, the sufferer all alone,
It is the hell on fire, turmoil one can hardly stop.

If one can just wear these trying moments with grit,
With a spirit adventurous, deep faith & hope Great,
Pain becomes a blessing and this World a Great Gym,
Link gets forged & one grows more refined & Strong.

Spirituality – the Journey to the Source

In search of the Adventure Within

Who am I? From where have I come on this planet?
Why I am here? & what is the purpose of my Existence?
When these questions bubbles from the innermost Core,
Spirituality is born, consciousness peeps beyond its limiting shores.

Thus Spirituality is the Quest of the Soul,
In search of its Origin, Destination & the Way,
Spirituality is the Journey of the Soul to its Source,
In search of peace, freedom, bliss & adventure of course.

Spirituality is the process of Self Awakening,
Blooming of the Human Potential gradually to its peak,
Call it Self-Realization, God-Realization or Self-actualization;
It is the Birthright, every awakened Soul, daring Spirit seeks.

It is journey from dark realm of unconscious,
To the Peak of the Enlightenment or Self-illumined inner core,
When all things fail, one is all alone,
It is opening to the divine, getting in touch & tune with the Infinite.

It is a very personal thing,
Aspiration of the heart, the source of strength and solace
Spirit standing calm Witness amid all ups & downs
Even if all possessions pulverized into dust & stones.

Spirituality is not a fashion to be paraded
Or a luxury to be indulged in
It is the deepest Call from the Core
When there is nothing to Anchor on the Shore.

There is no competition with anyone,

 Only self-records to be shattered here,
No effort, no blow ever goes here vain,
Only Self limits to be surpassed again & again.

Starting from the depths of the heart
Seeking Perfection, spirituality goes to the Ultimate,
Every blow is a blessing here
With each step one grows more refined & more Strong.
