ANCHOR INTO THE GROUNDLESSNESS

In POETRY by Sonja-Maria Teufel-Schmarsli3 Comments

Drop the anchor of the mind
into the groundlessness
to find firm support
from the unknown.

For when the carmic winds blow strongly
on a chuming samsaric sea
allow the boat-like human body
to dwell in total ease.

Thunders and lightnings of thoughts and emotions
like naturally occuring waves and murmurs below the ground
run freely through the sentient being.
Harmless and innocous to the boat they are
as it rocks loosly on the line.

The soundless impact of the anchor palm
incessantly driving into the soil
gives subtle impulse to a gigantic Pendulum
that hangs from the center of a blue resplendent dome
encircled by immeasurably dazzling rays of light.

As the Pendulum begins to swing
it tenderly invokes a silent tone.
From beginningless worlds
the sound of HUNG is falling into pure awareness
and flows through the expanses without barriers.

The vibrancy of the approaching tone
fully shakes solid grounds and guises.
HUNG HUNG HUNG
HUNG HUNG HUNG
HUNG HUNG HUNG

The incipient sound increasingly gets more intense
growing from gently murmuring streams to thundering torrents.
Loud and quiet tones create a sequence of harmonious symphonies.
Sonorous and melodious notes occur
to abruptly strike and ring like wakeup-calls

until an abbundance of various tones and clangors
fills the entire space.
HUNG HUNG HUNG
HUNG HUNG HUNG
HUNG HUNG HUNG

The nascent sound of the HUNG
gets even strenghtened by the swelling crescendo
of the tone syllables of OM and of AH.
A glorious sonority uprises
overwhelmingly rich of timbres and colours.

Bathe the troubled mind in the refreshing waves of sound
and enjoy the heavenly pleasure and delight.
With the natural breath of in and out
mind and body serenely tune into the Pendulum´s swing
and easily let go all strains and tensions.

OM AH HUNG
OM AH HUNG
OM AH HUNG

In accordance with the eternal play
of the potent and sublime awakening
let the being swing and sway.
Like the boat rocks calmly on the water
tied up only with a loosly line.

Billions of human cells dance wildly with the
firework´s display of sounds and waves and lights
and blissfully happy align their cores with the harmonious order.
Due to the swinging of the syllables of OM and of AH
a limitless number of cells is given rejuvenated form alike.

OM AH HUNG
OM AH HUNG
OM AH HUNG

Evenly rest in the cosmic sea of bliss and joy
like a wave is reabsorbed in the ocean without fear.
Surrender to a potent grace that dwells beyond any limits.
Let the fullness of its splendor saturate your being
and recognize the – Self.

OM
AH
HUNG

Whenever the anchor is raised and sails are set
travel forth in the inner light that has revealed itself.
Whereever then the passage takes the boat
it safely navigates in any waters and follows the stars in the sky
back home. Again and again and again …..

Drop the anchor of the mind
into the groundlessness
to find firm support
from the unknown.

In the South of Germany I am running a little hotel. I enjoy meeting and taking care of my guests and like to connect people who didn´t know each other before for any possible project. I love writing poetry, painting and getting in contact with the unlimited abbundance of nature by observing, breathing and comtemplating. I search to keep things simple and somehow try to integrate all daily experiences into the Dharma. Sonja-Maria's website.
