Nirmala: Let The Seeker Rest


I love listening to the sound of a flute .... it brings me pause ... which lets me sink deeper and deeper into what is here ... lets me appreciate the now ... just as it is ... no assessment ... no qualifications ... just pure and simple acceptance of this ordinary yet magnificent moment.

Reading or listening to mystical poetry is like listening to the flute ... it brings a gentle pause ... a resting of the mind ... reminds me of the simple inescapable truths ... of that which really counts in life ... its like smelling the sweet fragrance of flowers; when on a walk. In this resting the mind has the space to see and acknowledge its source ... That which is always here ...

Hope, faith, beliefs, dreams, destiny, purpose ... seeking ... all can be seen for what they are in these precious pauses ...

Here’s the original text for the poem:

the obvious signs

a playful smile

absence of pretense

disregard for convention

respect for truth

listen when they speak

look where they point

follow where they lead

abandon hope and faith and dreams

accept nothing less than all they have to give

your share in the infinite is infinite

come claim your birthright

return to the place never left
return and let the seeker rest

subside in the unending peace

let the seeker rest

let that which you seek find you

let the seeker rest

the task is finished

let the seeker rest

let the seeker rest
