Poem: Spirituality and Materialism
In our hearts
There is no place for anything else
Except our being
What is our being?
It’s the undiluted state of existence – nothingness
Empty of all our acquired thoughts and emotions (selves)
Including ego, fear, selfishness, and wickedness
Identities, attachment, achievements and expectations
Our being requires body, mind and soul to be in complete abeyance
For us to taste true happiness, peace and Love
It’s only through faith, hope and Love that we can bring ourselves to nothingness
And be partakers at the table of unconditional Love
Now, what is materialism?
It’s not the possession or accumulation of material things including money & wealth
Materialism is the complete contamination of our being
With thoughts, emotions and anything else that occupies the fabric of nothingness
It is great to work hard and fill our lives with achievements, identities and dreams
But it’s forbidden to hold those achievements or identities in our hearts
As a replacement for the fabric of being – nothingness
It’s a waste of time to be full of ego for a moment only to be lost to the everlasting embrace
Spirituality means nothing to those who have not tasted nothingness
It’s only through our nakedness (spirit) that we can be empty of our acquired selves
It’s only through unconditional Love that one finds true happiness, peace and hope
Now, how do we keep our being undiluted?
It’s through solitude, silence and stillness that our body, mind and soul can be cleansed
It’s through the fruits of the spirit (prayer, kindness, goodness, gentleness, compassion and humility) that we are dressed with unconditional Love
It’s never too late to embark on the journey of the spirit
Where you will find your true being – nothingness
The everlasting existence – eternity
