Thy will is my will

A LOOK AT LIFE-93
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

THY WILL IS MY WILL

I believe in God
Neither I am afraid of life
Nor I am afraid of death
In both, I see the will of my Lord

Neither I see the sun
Nor the shower
It is He who is born
It is He who dies
It is He who lives
Enjoys and endures

He is Krishna
He is Arjun, Aswathama
Sakuni and Duryodhan
He lives in a thousand bodies
He is everywhere
In whatever I see and perceive
And what lies beyond
My vision and perception
It is His game
He knows how to play it
Why should I worry?

Happiness is His
So also the sorrow
Why so much of fear?
So much of anxiety?
So much of possessiveness?
When I am not the doer
The doer is someone else
The drama is His
He knows how to enact it
Why should I bother,?

When I come close to my real nature
I feel
I am He and He is me
The big void, the cosmic consciousness
Neither there is life nor death
Only consciousness unfolding
A parade, from eternity to eternity
And I myself
The actor, spectator and director
Beyond me, nothing exists
Absolutely nothing
