I Shall Relate and Empathize


You want to know why
You are so lonely?
It is to remind you to

Relate more to others
From your heart’s oneness-song
You want to know why
You are so miserable?

It is to remind you to
Feel unreservedly about others
Not simply yourself

The scriptures teach us
How to love the Saviour
The Saviour teaches us
How to love the Real in yourself

The future God
What does she look like?
So next time you mediate

Upon your life’s goals
Think about what it means
To live an unconditional life
And how to make life

A playground where you
Are neither lonely or miserable
But remember the Love of God

At every step, in everybody’s
Eyes, then nobody will ever
Be able to snatch you away
From the Embrace of God

(And you hear a distance voice
Like a hymn of many whispers)

A God-seeker thinks
That he can be free
A God-server feels
That she is the empathy

A God-lover knows
That freedom is forgetting oneself
