You are not

You are not

I have wandered in search of your existence! In the midst of the glamour of this world to the fringes of solitude but you have remained a mere perception!

 

I have been taught to believe that you are a reality and this worldly existence a mere perception! However in your elusiveness, I now perceive that “YOU ARE NOT”.

 

The believers hail me a radical but I still have hope that you are a reality and I a mere perception.

 

Caught in a storm at 10,000 feet in the Nubra valley, I was reminded of the storm of our existence and the search for the forever elusive  ultimate reality!

 

Tu haqeeqat hai main sirf ehsaas hoon
Tu samandar main bhatki hui pyaas hoon
Mera ghar khaak par aur teri rahguzar
Sidrat ul-muntaha

 

You are reality, I merely perception
You are the ocean, I a wandering thirst
My dwelling is on the humble soil, and you journey
Beyond even the seventh heaven
