Poetry — 27 November 2013

A random thought by Sandesh Sam Weinstein and dedicated to those that have found a truth and can truly say about themselves “I am Enough.”

I am enough

In a moment of mindfulness
I stepped out of my shower
feeling the cool water against my skin
after a day of 37C heat.
As I stood naked in my bedroom
I looked at my nightstand
and felt a burst of freedom
and a fresh breath of air.

In front of me I saw a wooden necklace
with a round locket holding.
A Man that never was
or at least a likeness
that tried to capture him
this Osho Man.
One who they called Bhagwan.

In this moment it comes to me.
YES it is so unbelievable
that I was so destined to walk this journey
both miraculous and weird
and occasionally a bit dark.

A burst of light and I see any journey,
any adventure has its dangerous bits
or scary hurdles to climb or jump over.
It’s just part of what a Guru, a Sage can offer
perhaps I shall say Share with a seeker on the path.

Fireworks in my face
this journey did not end
JUST because I thought I had left it behind.
No this path, this guru it is only just beginning,
no matter how clever I thought
I had been in running away.

Shall I laugh or cry.
No I think I shall dance,
naked and wet in the heat
I dance and bathe in my own strength
and sense of self and that Now “I am Enough.”
