The Spirit

The Spirit weakens 

Due to onslaught of lies

Inner world becomes barren

Acerbic feelings seep deeper

Roots shrivel and die slowly

Momentary feeling of freedom

Disentangled from the Truth

Lure of darkened world

Intoxication of anonymity

Deep into the sea of gratification

Deluge the senses instantly

The Spirit becomes a driftwood

Will be washed ashore someday©

  1. Then the opposite is certainly true. Disentangled from a sea of lies, the Spirit soars and renews life all around.

    1. When one is aware that life is confined in the web of make-belief and a reality that is detrimental for the journey, it becomes easier to disentangle. Otherwise, life continues with the mundane flow- feeling exhausted (spiritually) every day. Desires have a way to engage the Spirit.
