In A New Raft Of Life

Death perchance a deepest unconscious sleep,
Bestowed to help forget all that had been,
And soul, that has to leave a date to keep,
Should soon, no-bags-but-all baggage1 unseen,
Summoned back to heavenly firmament,
Where divinity sits in sole Judgment—
Day of reckoning to review progress—
Correcting course, deeds done or not till far,
Soul standing trial, soul the sole witness—
And then return to sun, any a star,
To pick up pending pursuits whence he left,
Weave his Karmic fabric with warp and weft,
In a new life-raft sailing all alone—
A life set sail by destiny unknown.
_____________________________________________ _____
1. No bags but baggage: On death one must leave
the body, mind, and intellect along with all
that is identified against one’s name. But,
the soul leaves carrying the Karmic baggage,
good and bad, and the subtle memories and
sanskaras (sublime impressions) in the
unconscious deep awareness which accompanies
the soul on rebirth.
