Soul ego

I created the universe out of a fraction of myself,  yet, I remain separate.

You are the one I look forward to

while the rest of the world slides by


Do I have to give sound to my thought

I believe we are connected by the One


Paths I roamed a lot in vain for wine

just gathered ashes in a bodily jar


now though the jar is so full to the brim

with the knowledge of heaven & stars


I still have the aching feeling of being alone

So I ask ‘how do I proceed’ & ‘for what’


the voice in my head said, “destroy the jar”

Death sees knowledge as dust and jar as ego


For a mind seeped in knowledge the eternal

“I know” syndrome  clouds the mind & intellect


the jar though ever transparent in its nature

like a bubble in the sea, only to merge with it


No-mind resolves the issue of knowledge, and

a humble life with no attachments dissolves ego


Perish both must to escape this phenomenal world

For this, all cravings must cease like in death daily
