The Word of God
He is infinite and can't be discerned. He can't be fathomed by mortals. He is Beyond all words, ever devised by men. Man glorifies Him and receives all boons. Man is so eager to catch the space, as if to flow the river back to the source. But God knows how far the bird can fly. As per Hindu scriptures, Almighty, the most Gracious ever, creates Aakashvani ( sound in the sky ). He tells man His commandments all clear. Aakashvani is a sound or word of God. It is heard so loud and clear in the heavens. It is stern, like a warning, thundering all hearts. Man has no option except to comply when heard. This poem speaks about voice of God.
The Word of God
Follow my words as I command,
For you'll shudder to hear the truth,
Truth is an subtle and roaring ocean,
Your tiny canoe can't find the shore.
Smug of intelligence a little you have,
Indulge you all in insidious actions,
Uprooting plantations, finishing lives,
Don't you ever fear my hard scepter ?
Do you reflect on the evanescent time,
And all stars, the sun, and the Moon,
They shine so that you can live on,
My glance, they engulf a universe ?
When you rise in love of all beings,
I pour out insight and wisdom in you,
You taste all bliss and tame power,
The wind listens, obeys the ocean.
Life-Afterlife both I create for beings,
I want you to be a privy to all this,
To raise incessant your worth in life,
And climb faster the ladder up to Me.
You've caused lesions in the nature,
Think hard in the bottom of your soul,
When the stones and trees invoke me,
Nothing in the world can remain static.
See, how I have kept all things intact,
Subtle look though the fibers woven,
Deem your life too a blissful bondage,
Do you see the stable constellations ?
Do you need every time a word of God ?
Hear the billowing wind, listen to trees,
When you perfect hearing, listen truth,
Each fleeting moment utters my word.
