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?
