Pearl Matters: Seeking light through darkness

Do we search for answers without knowing the underlying basis? Are we open to the same answers when they naturally seek us? Photo: http://radfaith.wordpress.com

CALICUT, November 25, 2012- Do we search for answers without knowing the underlying basis? Are we open to the same answers when they naturally seek us?

 

Travelling through unbiased darkness I saw light,

Upon my prejudiced face it stood, dancing in circles,

Completing empty circuits I played with the source,

Like an egotist trying to fit himself to a T.

Salvaging pride, cutting across the dimming night,

Men and women escaped into the darkness,

But I had to find it- as I was the only one to see it,

It reflected in corners, as I reflected on edge,

Reading my raging mind, it leapt into the night.

I grappled with the temptation-like an egoist,

Failing to find his last shred of generosity.

Days went by, and nights stitched bleakly along,

Then on a similar night I stood as a light danced on,

Savouring the moment, I halted my rabid thoughts,

I waited in eager anticipation and it leapt up to me,

Enlightening me with the wisdom I wouldn’t forget,

A pearl can seldom be sought as it’s too rare to get,

But finds its master when it’s his fate to be met.
