Poet's Notes about The Poem

Self- Development Vs. Self-Realization

Self-Development Vs. Self-Realization is a very old debate
To reach our real home or to know that we are already at home; an enlightened state!
The sun is outside or inside us, being refracted by waters of mind’s lake
Or the mirror reflecting God is in dusty and dirty state.

Both the concepts are too sides of same Reality
Self-actualization of Maslow; expression of your own potential, your powerful capacity
In a way, God or the pick of Excellence is within us
The duality of self and Godhood is the dust on the mirror, ripples on the lake or ignorance-delusive and misty

Developing yourself and ascending to wisdom’s peak; may be like dusting the mirror or stilling the ripples
Reaching your original home may be like knowing; beyond the mist which cripples
That you are already at Home, you were searching; a Self-Realization
Which releases your full potential into ‘Self- Actualization’!

Self is inter-connected through ‘soul-net’ in space-time extension,
Is this collectivity one of God’s definition?
When one units with many on principle like the fragrance in musk-deer
Self-expands to all inclusive SELF, development and realization become one as creator becomes creation!

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
