I, You & the Cosmic I
A Personal Voyage
As I offer You a flower, Ma,
I come to You as the very flower!
As I smell and savor the beguiling scent,
I become the scent, the flower & the space between!
As I collect the flower from her kindly mother flora,
I become the plant, its leaves & the spreading roots!
As I enter the garden to gather these winsome blooms,
I become the garden, the air and the nourishing soil!
As I breathe the air in there and revel in the breeze,
I become the breeze, the earth and the firmament!
As I gaze the canopy embedded with many immaculate pearls,
I become the Sun, the Moon and the twinkling stars!
As I gape at the sprawling bright ‘Akash Ganga’,
I become the glow spreading as the ‘Sathasaakhi’, the ‘Aswath’!
As I muse on the celestial gems, the seen and the unseen,
I become the thoughts that form this very universe!
When I am the cosmos, then I am the time, the absolute,
Flowing, spreading, filling, engulfing every void and beyond!
Through the time, the incessant time, I become YOU, the Cosmic I,
As all the aphorisms emanating from the Vedas start blooming in me!
