Show me the Way!

Oh dear friend

Show me the way!

Cause I am lost, hopeless,

and helpless!

But with the touch of Your Grace

the blind can see the sky,

the deaf can hear sound,

 and cripples can climb hills!

Oh dear Friend, show me the way!

Engulfed by delusion,

lusting for illusion

I wake up daily in confusion.

Praying for the ability,

to respond with humility,

according to time, place, and

circumstances.

Alas, only lust, greed, and anger,

dwell in my heart,

and sense gratification

is keeping me away

from my real identification.

Struggling daily with the senses

fighting over every inch of saneness

I am slowly suffocating

in the incessant flow

Of All  

unwanted desires,

 unexpected outcomes,

and unfortunate reactions!

I try introspection,

sometimes meditation

but somehow I keep

losing my attention.

The tongue spits poison here and there,

the eyes are lusting everywhere,

the ears attach themselves to nowhere.

and I keep attaching myself to anywhere.

Ignorance is creeping behind the corner,

happily awaiting for me to create disorder,

knowing very well that I can’t find any order.

I scream and shout in the dark

and keep calling Your Holy Name out,

but the only sound I hear back,

is the silence of the night.

In this lowly condition,

In this desperate position,

we the conditions souls

suffer our ups and downs.

Until Grace touches our hearts,

we should keep cleaning the heart,

we should keep praying in the mind

and we should keep calling His Holy Name out!

Oh dear friend

Show me the way!

cause I am lost, hopeless,

and helpless!

But with the touch of Your Grace

the blind can see the sky,

the deaf can hear sound,

 and cripples can climb hills!

Oh dear Friend show me the way!
