Where lies the Dream of Existence?

Hello, Dear Parent Friends of the Web!

Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life.



The Six Faculties of Life's Revolution



Existence - non existence
Birth - death
Appearance - disappearance
Emergence - dissolution
Coming - going
Beginning - ending
Origination - cessation

As name and form
As chains of causation
From phenomena to noumena and vice-versa
As world, or universe

Entrapped within six fields of perception
As sense bases, sense objects, and sense consciousnesses
Called 'eighteen elements of being'

Such is the revolving dream, upon dream
Of life, momentary
Of life, transient
Of life, ephemeral
As a phantom, a dew drop, a bubble, a torrent
A spark, or a bolt of lightening, indeed!

Thus, never the same in any two moments
But, in flux, without permanence
Are life's embodiments
As 'passengers in transit', to say least!

Thus, is all of existence
Thus, is the truth to be told!
Thus, is the flickering field of relativity
Held within the chambers of perception...
The six faculties!

Guard them
And let not be carried away
By shadows of thought or hues of emotion
As 'craving or clinging' and 'attachment or grasping'

The dreams are incessant
As pleasant or unpleasant
Constructive or destructive
Non-violent or violent
Satisfactory or non-satisfactory
All to be propagated by degrees of lust
Of perception

Transcendence through contemplation
Through introspection
Through meditation
Through insight
Will lead to the one truth
That lies beyond 'birth and death' of perception
The ultimate nature of being

The mirror of luminous awareness
Unborn and undying
At the heart of all pervasive Wisdom-Compassion
Or true mind, serene!



Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
