Who Am I, Poem By Rumi

What is to be done, O Moslems?

for I do not recognize myself.
I am neither Christian, nor Jew, nor Gabr [Magian], nor Moslem.
I am not of the East, nor of the West, nor of the land, nor of the sea;
I am not of Nature's mint, nor of the circling heavens.
I am not of earth, nor of water, nor of air, nor of fire;
I am not of the empyrean, nor of the dust, nor of existence, nor of entity.
I am not of India, nor of China, nor of Bulghar, nor of Saqsin;
I am not of the kingdom of 'Iraqain, nor of the country of Khurasan.
I am not of this world, nor of the next, nor of Paradise, nor of Hell;
I am not of Adam, nor of Eve, nor of Eden and Rizwan.
My place is the Placeless, my trace is the Traceless;
'Tis neither body nor soul, for I belong to the soul of the Beloved.
I have put duality away, I have seen that the two worlds are one;
One I seek, One I know, One I see, One I call.

....RUMI.

Law of Opposites and Freedom of Choice

From an observational point of view, everything in nature comes in pairs. Any adjective has its opposite. Bright/Dark, White/Black, Happiness/Misery, even conceptually god can't exist without the devil. Having said that, if things are measured that way, then the universe is balanced. The more happiness there is, the more unhappiness will exist somewhere else...Like it or not.
What we are offered, I think, is freedom of choice, to choose between happiness and Misery.

I think generally people don't wish to be only happy. They relate happiness to worldly pleasures and desires. But desire can't be satisfied, the more you eat, the next day you want more and more, you get a Honda you want Mercedes, you get Mercedes you want the latest, you marry the most beautiful you still desire another...Desires differ from person to person but they are all unattainable in the long run.

Happiness becomes last on your wish list. Another reason for not putting it first, is because you may be granted happiness but on the expense of other items, the beautiful car, the promotion you always wanted at work..Etc. I think even consciously if people are offered to be more happy or offered another materialistic wish, they will choose the latter. Happiness can come later. So, it gets pushed and pushed till the last day of your life..

So to change that, you need to place your Joy and Happiness above all. Don't concern yourself with the miseries of others for now. Take care of yourself first then turn to defend other's miseries because if you don't, you will be sucked into their miserable hole.

The universe doesn't care about your choice, or in fact it will honor it either way. If the whole earth decides to be miserable, it will be perfectly fine and happiness will be found on some other planet...

The point of let go

Two souls meetings on different grounds
beside the tree next to the fire
They did not ask names
only her hair found place in his lantern
.
How beautiful, how real
Their shadows drawing one painting
On canvas meshed with desire
.
As his hand touches her silky body
He realized how lucky to be there
Next to her
Feeling her
Smelling her
Eating her
.
You are mine, He said
She looked at him with a smile
Without any response
Breathless, in her own heaven
Speechless
.
She let her arms spread, carelessly
Her eyes lit with spark with no comprehension
Sweat mixed
As the universe expanded uncontrollably
.
With burst of laughter and cries
She let go of all her worries
And let her climax cover every inch of her body
Shivering undeniably
.
What a man can do
When faced with such a beauty
When his prayers are meet
Not by god but an instant release of her fragrance
,
What a man can do
When faced with such a desire
Surpassing anything he could have wished for
Turning love into physical purity
.
When beginnings have no ends
The point of letting go is timeless
That point of melting defies logic
Even time stops then
.
Her relaxed legs still wrapped around him
His tired body still covering her
Rolling slowly
For one more
one more

Osho, Strange Consequences



When Friedrich Nietzsche Declared "God Is Dead", F*CK became the most important word in the English Language... (funny but Careful,Adult Language in the video)


(About Friedrich Nietzsche is a German philosopher who reasoned that Christianity's emphasis on the afterlife makes its believers less able to cope with earthly life. He argued that the ideal human, the √úbermensch, would be able to channel passions creatively instead of suppressing them. His written works include Beyond Good and Evil (1886) and Thus Spake Zarathustra (1883–1892))
