Saying ‘Yes’ to Beingness

An original poem by Ranjan De Silva

Beingness invites us to ‘be’

But we attempt to ‘become’

Are we human beings or human becoming’s?

What would it mean to just be?





Beingness begins when we understand beingness

When we listen to the signals of beingness

Try to understand the grand plan of beingness

And say ‘yes’ to beingness





Being is participating in the process of life

It begins with the understanding of the process of life

It requires us to understand our role in the process of life 

And contributing to the process of life





When beingness provided us a pandemic,

With a grand plan to wake us from a bigger pandemic

To save us from the materialistic pandemic 

To save us from the power pandemic





The pandemic of destroying nature

The pandemic of destroying humanity

The pandemic of destroying economies

The pandemic of destroying livelihoods





Some are trying to stop the virus

Some are trying to nurture the virus 

Some are trying to prevent the virus

Some are trying to cure the virus





Driven by their own knowledge

Driven by their own aspirations

Driven by their own agendas

Driven by their own purpose





Can we please stop?

Can we listen to beingness?

Can we talk with each other?

Can we agree how best to say ‘yes’ to beingness?
