The Soul, Like The Moon Poem by Lalleshwari

The Soul, Like The Moon

Rating: 4.0

The soul, like the moon,
is now, and always new again.

And I have seen the ocean
continuously creating.

Since I scoured my mind
and my body, I too, Lalla,
am new, each moment new.

My teacher told me one thing,
live in the soul.

When that was so,
I began to go naked,
and dance.

[Taken from Naked Song, by Lalla / Translated by Coleman Barks]

The body is but a bearer of the soul. The only truth is existence of the soul.10+++++

This is how children live- - steeped in the present, absorbed totally by what they see and hear and feel and taste and taste. Live with your soul not just your mind. Beautiful poem/beautiful message.
