Everything Is Nothing! - Poem by Ramdas Bhandarkar

Everything is nothing,
Nothing is everything,
Everything is Truth and Truth is everything,

All come from a pool and remain in the pool,
fool is that Truth which identifies itself with some fool,
When fool is grown enough to know the pool,
And can see beyond,
He sees he is that,
He is that,
he is that nothing
Thinking on nothing!
Nothing can exist as it is!

Remain in the pool,
Coming and going is that illusion!
Raising and falling as waves of unidentifiable formless energy,
Taking forms with different blends of its own forms,
Truth is that which bestows an atom to absorb the ocean
And Truth is that truth fools itself with wrong identification!

Then every breath is meditation,
Stopping train of thoughts,
Seeing all in true colour,
Remains as everything and nothing in his own nature!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Knowledge says I am nothing,
Love says I am everything, between these my life flows..

    A poem of depth to meditate and contemplate!
    Enjoyed very much the allusions you used to make
    your statement.
