Shreedhar Acharya 1989 (Pyuthan)
Like a flowing river!!
Just balance your sheet
And move on.
Don’t create fresh shit
Here and there.
And be sure not to create
Like a flowing river
Be, you go wherever
Swiftly passing through obstacles
Sometimes with a roar though!
Whatever has to happen will happen
Just clear off the hindrance
Life will be in full flow!
It is the biggest miracle
Just be with moment
It is the doorway to Divine!
You might have heard
“When your eye is one, Your body is full of light”
It is when you open that Eye
You live in Eternal Now, the timeless flow!
The one in the left is memory of past
Right one is the dream of future
The middle one is the reality of Now
The realm of the Transcendence, Wow!
Springing and singing like a river
Surpassing the obstacles with Joy
Sometimes with sweet touch of pain though
Ever filled with touch of live forever and ever!
You are a flowing river
God is travelling with you
And also waiting for you
In the Limitless Ocean of Love!
Everything about you is moving
Longing for the Limitless
Surging for the Infinite Expansion!
The five elements are moving
The five sheaths are changing
Every atom seeks the rest in Thee Oh! God
With its fierce rotation Day and Night!
Life is a flowing river
It knows not stagnation
Only the storehouse of mind
Collects the garbage from the past
Still and steel the mind
What remains is abundance of Life
Reclaiming yourself as a flowing river
You flow into the Unbounded like a drop in an ocean!
This is we! This is we!
A flowing river!
Ever fresh, ever alive!
Constantly moving for the ocean of Light!
No grudges and pain
No loss or gain
No fear and lust
Just the way it is! Just…..!
There are hordes of problems on the way
Still No Problem! Still no fear!
The real way to be in Ecstasy
Like a flowing river!
Intensity with the flow
Involvement with the Life around
Yet no entanglement with the mountains
Nor attachment with the plains!
I am a river
Playing the drama of Divine
Of illusory birth and death!
Yet I never sprang
I never dry
In birth and death play of world (Maya)
I am ever in the bosom of Divine!
Forever and ever
It is going on like this
It’s what it is
No more words than this!!
Although a river is constantly flowing and changing
It looks as if same in a period of time
Same is true with us
Although everything constituting our
Body are moving and changing
We look as same in a period of time!
River look different when amount of water changes
Similarly, we also look different when we gain or lose weight
Although everything is a flow like a river
We miss it because of the Illusion of Maya
Tear the veil, Light will flow!!
Light is ever waiting in your doorsteps
To enter and brighten you
Who stops the light from entering?
Its you! Oh! Dear! Its you!!
The Ego Self prevents it !
Get out of your own way!!
And let the light of Life pierce
Through your Being
And make Yourself Divine Being!!
You are a flowing river, no doubt!
But at which part of river you live is your choice
From glaciers to ocean it’s all body of river
In between them you can either
Live in any part or
At the confluence of river with the ocean!!
Constantly living at the peak
Merging with the Infinite
Or Living elsewhere to do service
And graze the valleys of Life with its ups and downs!!
यथा पिण्डे तथा ब्रह्माण्डे
Like this body is the Universe
So, whole Universe is also a flowing river
Springing from the roar of Shiva
Merging into the belly of Shiva
At final dissolution!!
We are individual river
At the same time, part of the Universal river
Eternally playing the hide and seek
In Lila(Eternal Flow) of the Creator and Creation!!
We have only two options
Either live as a Creation or Creator Himself
Either live in the nook and crannies
Or in the very confluence of ocean
Or in the very origin of river
Both way we merge into the
Infinite Unbounded ‘Paramatma’!!
Before springing as river we were in the bosom of ‘Paramatma’
After merging in ocean again we go to Him
In the middle journey also
We are connected with Him
So, it is by Thy will we roar through
Nook and crannies of the mountains
And meadows of plains!!
In the journey, help the Life around in every possible way
For water, irrigation, electricity and many other faith of people
But never lose sight of your real aim of merging with Infinite
Or Emerging Infinite as Ocean in a drop!
You cannot move around the way
Thinking that these people love you
Keeping the move is your Nature
Boundless Ocean awaits you in near Future!!
You are not like a flowing river
Rather you are The flowing river
Always move tireless and joyful
Singing the songs of Life
In unspeakable ecstasy, ineffable joy
Always and forever, ever and ever
Being a flowing river
Living a flowing river!!
Like a flowing river
Raw and wild moving in its bounty
Volcanic and peaceful at the same time
Exhilarating in its original beauty
Untouched by scratch of Life
Playing with Life at optimum
Still pure and not entangled
In full flow of joy and ecstasy
You are a Flowing River
It’s the way it is!
It’s the way it is!! Wow!!
ओम् तत्सत् ब्रह्मणे नमः
