In Meditation

—Ss moorty

To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.
— Jiddu Krishnamurti

I cogitate, sit cross-legged, and meditate
glorifying gods as my invisible friends and recite
mystical verses silently seeking their blessings ’cause
I don’t see them. But it is their immanence,
their pervasive spirit that provides solace
to my troubled spirit and offers guidance.
And I don’t need a temple or a church or a congregation
to think about god and to offer prayers to Him.
I perform my meditation daily religiously,
but I need the names of gods to relate to them.
The ancient Greeks had their Apollo and Zeus;
Hindus still have Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara.
Rama, Krishna, and Shiridi and Satya Saibaba.
So, I recite ancient verses in solitude for solace.
