meditative - III



One who surrenders themself 

to others teachings, thoughts and ideas, 

has little to contribute 


One who is free to explore, 

exchange, adapt and adopt, 

is open to self-realization

    such very true words suresh.


  • Doggerel Dave

    Mmmm I’m not sure you worry too much, Suresh – you are going to put it out there anyway…
    For some individuals, a series of defined principles is necessary for survival.
    And….not everyone can or is capable of valid contribution – Babel will be the result.
    However the choice is with the individual – surrender or be free, and settle at any point along that continuum.

      to each their own, for who am I to dictate!

      • Doggerel Dave

        .......or me or anyone else. I definitely vote for that one, Suresh.

        its funny
        the accuracy of your words are realised
        in just this comment section alone...
        how we doggedly like to self-indulge
        our delusional self-importance... lol
        (a profound observation
        a humbling read, and a gifted opportunity
        for all to utilise your words and grow
        even a little)
        thanks for sharing, dear poet

          Good write, M.S..
          Redneck version:
          There is no obligation on my part
          to live up to anyone’s expectations
          of a dammed thing.

          • SureshG

            and so they follow fanatically…..

            • Jerry Reynolds

              No! When they do it's a gift.
