Rishi Menon

(12-Feb-1997)

I am


I am not a Christian
I am no Muslim
I am not a Jew
Nor am I Buddhist

I am not a Man
Nor am I Woman
I am not a Plant
Nor Animal

I am not just here
Nor there alone
I am not in something
Nor around

I am not Sound
Nor am I Silent
I am not the Light
Nor am I darkness

I am not Air
Nor am I Fire
I am not the Earth
Nor am I Water

I am not God
I am not the Devil
Not the Good
Nor am I evil

I've no leanings
No boundaries
I'm a force that drives
The sun and stars alike

I am the music in the lute
The strength of the blue whale
Majesty of the mountains
and expanse of the oceans

I am you, you are me
I need you, you need me
I am all, I am everything
Aham Brahmasmi

I am Life.

Ash (Rishi's Dad)

    very nice poem, it made me think. if you are
    everything then who am i an entity riding a
    universal vessel. hmmm...

    me just a passing beat
    trying to make the best
    hoping not to be step on
    as i watch stars and moon

    thanks. md (Report) Reply

    i am as i am coursed upon by Him
    yet a living being when resouced upon by His gleams...........and i do exist as an entity by the embodiment of love, peace, without any distinction of man or woman, cast or creed, yet by the grace of all when earthly., yet the luscious flow
    wish u all the besr reflxing u pon
    wish u all trhe best (Report) Reply
