Whispering Voices

By Sacinandana Swami

Are you in need of some new impetus?

A stronger motivation?

Or a new perspective?

Then go fearlessly

to the place of a thousand voices

and hear some straight advice.

Listen attentively

as the voices rise from a thousand graves;

they have special power:

“You, who are the soul that will not die,

know - life is a trembling bow

that hurls the soul-arrow forward.

Don’t break it or waste it

like some of us did.

But take aim wisely…

Beware; there is nothing

that hurts the soul more

than keeping it away from what is essential.

Is there a greater violence

than keeping the fish

away from the ocean?”
