Who Am I ?


               by Ella Wheeler Wilcox


God and I in space alone and nobody else in view.

“And where are the people, O Lord,” I said,

“the earth below and the sky o’er head

and the dead whom once I knew?”


“That was a dream,” God smiled and said,

“A dream that seemed to be true.

There were no people living or dead,

There was no earth, and no sky o’er head;

There was only Myself---in you.”


“Why do I feel no fear,” I asked,

“meeting You here this way?

For I have sinned I know full well—

And is there heaven, and is there hell,

And is this the Judgement Day?”


“Nay, those were but dreams,”

the Great God said,

“Dreams that have ceased to be.

There are no such things as fear or sin;

There is no you—you never have been—

There is nothing at all but Me.”







What I see is me,
I am reality and nonduality.
I am seeker and sage.
I am those who think they are here for the first time,
and those who think they are here for the last time,
I am those who know they are and those who don't.
Will I be travelling the path again?

That's why I post messages, directions and shortcuts.
if this were my last travel I would not say a thing.

But according to my nondual mind,
I am one without second,
I am every seeker in this world,
and every sage.

I travel every road.
Not just my own.

Is the consciousness inside your mind,
the same as inside mine?





Twelve Laws for World Peace


by Adi Da Samraj




1. Cooperation + Tolerance = Peace.


2. All of humankind must "lose face" together — in order to
require cooperation and tolerance of each other.


3. The people are now the direct and specific targets of all
wars. Therefore, armed conflict must no longer be engaged as a
means for dealing with world issues.


4. No nation or culture has the right to enact — or even to
plan — mass destruction, for any reason whatsoever.


5. The "Humble Unity" of all of humankind (as
"everybody-all-at-once") is the power that must dissent from
all efforts to achieve world domination.


6. The right ordering of human society can only occur on the
basis of freedom from any "ruling ideology" — whether that
ideology is religious or secular in nature.


7. The universal human rights are unlimited physical
participation in the opportunities of human life and unlimited
physical protection from harm.


8. The real (even genetic) situation of the human species is
prior unity. Peace requires that prior unity be the
working-presumption of humankind.


9. The working-presumption of prior unity must become the
basis of a global body of universal participation — or Global
Cooperative Forum — that exists to represent and address the
urgent global issues that everyone has in common.


10. In that Global Cooperative Forum, all "name-tags" and
"slogans" and "flags" must be "left at the door". Every
participant would represent all of humankind as a totality.


11. Ultimately, the habit of presuming to be a separate "self"
(confronting a "world-out-there") is to be outgrown in the
Enlightened understanding of Reality as inherently One,
Non-separate, and Indivisible.


12. Perfect Peace Is the tacit, direct, and Intrinsically
Self-Evident Self-Realization of the inherently egoless, and
Perfectly Indivisible, and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Nature,
Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself — Which Is
Utterly Beyond all mere ideas, and all presumptions of
"separate self", and all presumptions of separate
"world-out-there", and all presumptions of separate" God".





Dear Friends... i thought you may like this new poem


with respect and love bindu




Dear Self ...
Before you i was not....
your silence called forth all!


Silence thundered ...
in the echo of Love ...
the myth of "i" came forth.


That ray ...
your love is - was ...
that which lit each scene.


Each heart ...
born of the echo
is - was mirrored truth.


Eloquent Silence ...
every response void ...
devoid of expression of you.


Empty ...
i do not merge with you
i... who am not ...
am merely this affected effect!


i am Thor ..
Indra, my name is Zeus.
A myth, i am that thunder!


Silence writ ....
each syllable ...
every word an uttered lie!


Oh intelligent one
each letter here laid out
your echoed-nature strings together!


Silence ...
not i ... is the cause of being!
You are in Love with yourself!


Your Love ...
This manifestation of
is not its own cause!


Surely ....
Love is its own reflection
yet the love-light arises also!


From the sheer moment
from the sheer presence
from the unfathomable
from Silence!


Oh Mind be quiet and listen..
listen to the eloquent one.
understand this..


Realize that nothing arises from you!
realize that you are not self-arisen
recognize your dependance upon HE who does not speak!


Oh mind acknowledge this...
do not lie to yourself
avoid it not --
in Silence all is done!
