Anita Sehgal

(Delhi)

2 Be


In suspended animation of Now
Why can't I just BE?
With no baggage of the past
And no worry for the future
With nothing to pursue
And nothing to prove
BUT FOR THE JOY OF NOW!

I do not wish to become anything
I just wish to BE
To experience the magic of being alive,
To see the unfolding wonder
of the phenomenon called LIFE,
To admire life's variety
in all its facets.

To explore, to feel, to share the divinity within'
which ties us all in a single thread of consciousness.

    If for one such moment you can consciously be
    Unburdened by the past or by futures fear decree
    Free you will be in spirit and soul indeed
    And as a Buddha a new life lead
    Moment to moment living life intensely
    And that is what God initially ordained us to be.............

    An enjoyable piece; BEING versus DOING, it's part of the human condition we all must endure, DO, BE, DO, BE, DO - perhaps Frank SInatra had it right all along; loved the concept of your poem.

    With so many demands on our daily lives, I think we all would simply like to relax, and not worry about yesterday nor fret over tomorrow. Sometimes, we simply need to “stop, and smell the roses.” A lovely poem. (Report) Reply

    This is a most sublime poem.
    Living in the now is the most simple, yet impossible
    task for humankind. I tend to live in the I better do
    it now or it will never get done, then don't do it
    anyway! But right now I am enjoying you now! (Report) Reply

    If we think this way, we may have to give up many of our traditional values..Once upon a time, I thought like this and then
    To explore, to feel, to share the divinity within'
    which ties us all in a single thread of consciousness.
    I realized the truth as you have written in the last paragraph.
    Well written verses! 10 marks.. (Report) Reply
