Solitary Confinement

The mind looks to confine
to measure
to contextualize
to give meaning
to itself
for the ego
can exist only
in finite possibilities
needing to enclose itself
in a part of the universe
walled off
from the rest of creation
and from within that prison
to show itself off
yearning to be recognized,
to be individualized
to be admired
and from within that prison
to be loved !
imagining
that everything around itself
has confined itself too
imprisoned itself too
sensing the universe
surrounded by
imagined bits of similar prisons
Imagine
a love you could embrace
the whole universe with
if only you came out of
the solitary confinement
your ego has imprisoned you in

    Can’t agree more with you. I spend a couple of hours everyday out of the four walls of the ego. I do this whenever i open the copy of a book written by Swami Chinmayananda explaining what Krishna really meant when he was preaching the Geeta to Arjuna. I dont know how, but i just get out of it and feel so quiet. The mind refuses to think or even get diverted. I dont mind or care when my roommate comes and says something or someone calls me. But unconsciously, i get out of that state and yo! I struggle the rest of day playing to the whims of the damn ego.
