Unfulfilled desires

Don't we have many?
Tons and tons of them, popping in and out of my mind....through out the day.
Sometimes I see a crowd watching some game, in a lit stadium.
TV Time out.
I wonder what is going on in the minds of 67,231 people now?
Any thought the same?
I imagine all the energies lit at the heart source, blazing away in all its glory.
If I could just visualise that for a moment, that would be an earth shattering moment.
I wonder what it would be to translate all that energy into some good for the world.
If we can cease all thoughts and translate that energy saved into some real good..
or maybe we are not expending energy in thought...doubt it.
What does it get us?
I think of so many un-fulfilled desires


Lover, I'm on the street
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar...on fire

She's a candle burning in my room
Yeah I'm like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon everybody got one
And the fever when I'm beside her
Desire, desire...

And the fever...getting higher
Desire, desire...burning, burning

She's the dollars
She's my protection
Yeah she's a promise
In the year of election
Oh sister, I can't let you go
Like a preacher stealing hearts
At a traveling show
For love or money money money
money money money money money
money money money
And the fever, getting higher
Desire, desire, desire, desire
Desire, desire

Desires, where do they come from?
Where do they live?
Where do they go?
The ones that get fruition, give rise to another...and another.
About a milli percent see the light of the day,
the rest just go floating ... into the universe,
to hit another mind in another world
They float away in a bottomless pit,
freefalling.... until they hit another barrier.

What inhibits them?
What fulfills them?
Who decides that?
Who controls them?
What is their purpose?

What about these desires? Am I doing anything for the good of the world?
Have I turned a blind eye to everything that should make me think?
Am I just happy to be in my comfort zone?
I am up by 50 points and don't want to see the face of the other team, lest I become like them?
As JFK once said, ".... ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.". The time to give back starts now.... lest

Main shayar badnam, Main shayar badnam ho o main chala, main chala,
Mehfil se nakam, ho o main chala, main chala, Main shayar badnam

Mere ghar se tumko, kuchh saman milega, diwane shayar ka, ek diwan milega,
aur ek cheeze milegi, tuta khali jam, ho o main chala main chala
Main shayar badnam

Sholo pe chalna tha, kanton pe sona tha, aur abhi jee bhar ke kismat pe rona tha,
jane aise kitne, bakki chhod ke kaam, ho o main chala, main chala
Main shayar badnam

Rasta rok rahi hai, thodi jaan hai baki, jane tute dil mein, kya arman hai baki,
jane bhi de ae dil, sabko mera salam, ho o main chala, main chala
Main shayar badnam, ho o main chala, main chala
mehfil se nakam, ho o main chala, main chala

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
