~ Eclipse ~


Moon's shadow on the sun
Moods shadow on the man
So many present
To the solar eclipse
to witness, to experience
to experiment , to explore...
a once-a-while phenomenon
How many are aware
to be present, to witness
to experience, to explore
the ever happening
endless eclipses
of the human mind
Be aware of the shadows
Its a way to awakening!

Hello Merging Point,

Aah! ..." endless eclipses of the human mind." I love this, we are always drawn to look for the outer shadows and are caught in the illusion of the inner shadows.

Beautiful!

very true merging point, no body wants to be a antar yami,

Merging Point said...

may not be "no body wants..", but, yes, many missing on that is possible, Fruitu!

I love the analogy of the eclipse and the eclipse of our self. Yes, often times our soul, our light is eclipsed by our ego. We are but a cycle away from awakening.

Merging Point said...

Thankyou Mark! yes, indeed.

Anna said...

Merging Point, excellent analogy. BTW are you relating to the latest solar eclipse. I it such a powerful moment, and give us sense of feeling if our main source of energy ever disappear. Such a profound moment to experience. Beautiful poem as always. Anna :)

Merging Point said...

It is a wonderful opportunity to make use to go within.
Liked your reflections too. thankyou Anna!

Yes indeed! Thought provoking poem!

Each eclipse is an opportunity to explore and come out renewed.

Merging Point said...

Thankyou kitchenette Soul!
True, it is an opportunity to rediscover our own selves!

Beautiful and powerful, Merging Point. This shows that what is taken for granted can change.

Hugs, JJ

Merging Point said...

Change is inevitable. But, whats even more striking is to to know the changeless amidst all the changes...
Thankyou JJ!

Ahh, lovely. "Be aware of the shadows." Without shadows, light would be close to meaningless.

Merging Point said...

yes Ruth! backdrop enables one to understand, differentiate and also remains as the steady support of all that happens too.

Anna said...
