About poets and poetry
In general, it looks like it is not easy to understand poets, even the realized ones, and they do not appear to be the favourites of the public. Poets always write about love and heart, which seems to scare some people, especially those who prefer to serve human ego, instead of the Spirit. Ego is not fond of poetry, no doubt. Spiritual poetry, however, is meant for the heart, for the Spirit. Ironically if the Spirit is not awakened it is not easy to read poetry, neither to understand poets. Poets even look dangerous to some folks, who are highly attached to their spouses, because poetry stresses on love, on pure divine love for everyone. Some even prefer to kick out their fellow-poets out of their communities for jealousy reasons, and furthermore to brainwash the others (who blindly trust them) not to keep in touch with poets. Such a vicious circle gets created only by misapprehension. This illusionary circle generates tension and falsehood in some communities with poets. People with lack of discretion and maturity trust any mental fabrications without using their vibrations to judge the situations. Instead of accepting each situation as a condition for spiritual growth,
some people produce tragedies out of them, literally competing with Shakespeare’s ones,
and it becomes too puzzly even for Shri Krishna to solve the imaginary issues.
Sahaja Yoga is yoga of pure divine love, and whoever desires to be a Sahaja Yogi,
has to accept the Absolute Truth as it is. ‘Absolute Truth is what it is’, and it would not change to please anybody’s ego. Vice versa, human ego has to be overcome, and its stupidity has to be wiped out. Ego thinks it knows everything, and it pumps itself like an air-balloon. When it pops up one starts clearly seeing its foolish tricks, and moreover one’s Spirit starts shining emitting love to everyone. At that point those who have been strongly serving their ego in the past, start laughing at its silliness, and switch towards giving a priority to their Spirit to love, to love everyone, the whole world without any boundaries and without any biases. They let their Spirit love freely, and purify the surroundings, giving to everything a lovingly transforming fragrance.
