Wherever you are

Where ever you are by Shiv Charan Singh

Wherever you are
You would be anyway
No matter the alternatives
The seeming varieties
The routes you could have walked
All paths to the same place
None really any different
Whatever you like to believe
You would still end up here

Whatever the road
None would be any better
Whatever you wished to avoid
Still, where you are
Is where you would be

In all possible tracks
You would
Have suffered the same blows
Enjoyed the same pleasures
Gained the same insights
And learnt the same lessons
There never was a better road
You were never going to be
Anywhere else but where you are

The same obstacles
Would cross your path
The same inspirations
Would awaken your heart
The frustrations that rise
The impulses that stimulate
All bringing the same experience
None would be any different
All attachments and fears
Would still be yours
The love and pain you feel
Would be no different
No matter with whom it is shared
In all scenarios
This time and place
Where you are now
Is exactly where you would be

And why is it so?
The constellation of the stars?
Your karmic record?
A Divine directive?
A genetic intelligence?
The choices you made?
Your responses to each situation?
Wherever you are now
You would be anyway

I am just a dream
On your way to the place
You are anyway going to arrive
It could have been another
The encounter would still occur
The same challenges given
No different wisdom passed on
No different the love shared
The same guidance
The identical provocations

All signposts you met
And have yet to meet
Invite the inner revolution
Offer the same support
Cleanses your delusions
Brings you to you
So you will be
Where you are to be


Words of wisdom from my teacher  Shiv Charan Singh for the times were are in:(April 2020)

Stop, pause.
Maintain a dynamic neutrality.
It means stay in the heart.
This is not bypassing.
This is reality.
Stop the mind racing to define or explain the problem.
Stop the mind racing to find the answer or solution, when we have not really found the problem.
The virus is a symptom.
Do not get lost in conspiracy theories.
The ultimate conspirator is God.
And it’s called hukam – as God wills it.
A virus is just a way of poking, provoking, and confronting.
Our response decides the elevation or not.
So, keep your heart pulsing.
And choose consciously.
Make decisions you may never have considered before.
A virus is not an evil to be destroyed.
It is a message.
If we stop the virus, but don’t stop our old way of being.
Then the hukam will find another stronger way to stop us.
So, meditate to stop the drama,
Do not believe anything.
Rather gaze at the horizon.
Stop your frustration and simplify.
Enjoy the mystery – be curious.
Stop getting lost in the 5 thieves of Maya,
To stop your anxieties and get to the true you,
From where you can pray for the world.
Dance with the unknown,
She is not your enemy.
When the front door is closed,
Let the inner door open.
Fall into your heart not your depression.
Exercise gratitude and exercise your body.
Cry for the world,
Not merely for self-pity.
Clean the subconscious and connect to your pure infinite nature.
Let’s respect nature.
Then maybe the virus will stop by itself.
Blessings to all.
