Are you looking for me?

 I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
not in masses,
nor kirtans,
not in legs winding around your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me,
you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.
– Kabir

Notes:

I would like to take a moment to say Thank You to all of you reading this morning over a cup of blueberry coffee, or perhaps a Bloody Mary?!? Thank You for your kind words, thoughts and passion towards these blog-o-post things here. I am deeply moved and touched by all of you!

Be well today and please take care.

      My french is a little rusty. 😉 My fave local coffee shop has a special blend of mountain blueberry coffee that is awesome! A little sweet and juicy, like a handful of fresh blueberries. You may be able to find something similar in your neck of the woods, if not, let me know and I’ll send you some – my treat! 🙂

    • That sounds awesome, two of my favorite things together how can it be wrong. I am now on the look out to see if I can find it here in TO. MMMMMMM Coffee, MMMMMM Blueberries 🙂

  2. Kabir is one of my favorite poets. Is he Moslem/Hindu or Hindu/Moslem? This is under dispute, but his lineage is a great mystical poet is clear.

      Just recently I have been introduced to his work and needless to say I am thoroughly enjoying it. There is so much more to read and learn about! Be inspired today and please take care. 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing that beautiful poem. Love the imagery. And I love the way Kabir talks about all the things we do that we think make us closer to God, like winding our feet around our necks (in yoga) or eating only vegetables, or going to a place of worship. And God has been waiting all the time, patiently, right inside of you! hehe. No need to go somewhere or do anything. He’s always with us. Or at least that’s what I get out of this poem.

  4. This is such a beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing with us!

    I was not aware of Kabir and his work. Thank you for the introduction. This poem is very simple but quite beautiful.

      Thank you for stopping over! I’m looking forward to enjoying some more of his work and I am so glad you were as moved as I was. Take care this weekend.

    I love that! He is the breath inside the breath. Kinda like squished away all the differences in religions and even between science and religion. =)

  9. wonderful! Love it! Thank you – reading it over my coconut coffee this morning 🙂 Namaste
