Body And The Universe: By Madathil Rajendran Nair

Close your eyes and still,
Feel your body
Part by part.

And, as you begin to drown
In slumber’s sweet hold,
Mountains pop up,
As do vales, waterfalls
Green trees, vast landscapes,
Stars and the Milky Way.

The body is all that,
Part by part!
The body is the Universe,
You are the body
And you are all!

A magnificent pulsation
Without parts and
Without a beyond!
Be just aware
And remain
Your own ecstatic self.

[Inspired by the poem “We Encountered The House Of Realization”  by Yunus Emre (1238 – 1320)]
