Like an elephant in the forest



Do not carry with you your mistakes.
Do not carry your cares.
Travel on alone
Like an elephant in the forest.

This world they say is an illusion....a dream. Our thoughts and actions are like threads of a net that we weave around ourselves. A veil has been drawn over our mind's eye and we live out our lives bound and blind folded. Life, they say is a play of shadows through which most of us sleep walk.Few have awakened from this sleep and have tried to show light to the rest of humanity. They succeeded only partly, passing away, leaving behind empty forms to be distorted and misused by their followers.Holy books, sacred messages, rites and rituals, they say, are mere shells. The spirit within, having long departed, along with the Messenger. These shells and forms are mere signposts for those who seek the formless.....and only the true seeker, they say, will find the Path.

How challenging it is to be alone. We take our memories, emotions and so many other things that create worlds made of illusions and dreams rather than the aloneness of the present moment.
