Sonnet: Self-Meditation - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

If when you close your eyes, this world is gone,
An inner world comes into your purview;
And when you close your ears while all alone,
This world anew, you can better review.

And when your skin’s benumbed, outer world’s lost,
You can now look better into your mind;
The world inside has become yours and vast;
The things you yearned for, you can always find.

Now, when you blank your mind, this world too wanes;
A tranquil state prevails one never felt!
Without sadness or joy, trifles or pains;
Now, hold your breath and things will tend to melt.

Self-meditation makes a man feel God,
For, deep within his heart, resides the Lord!
