Life Together

Life Together

We live in one existence, and there are no spare parts.

O Beloved Existence,

whisper this vital breath in all beings.

Songs become sweet

only when ears taste them.

Relations are fulfilled

only when Oneness embraces them.


Life goes on and on,

exists together and never alone. You are not you, and I am not me. I am in you, and you are in me.


You give something of you when you greet someone.

And when someone greets you, you allow them to enter.


Thus, greet all beings to expand.

And gather greetings to be grand.


Life happens through my awareness, and I am aware through its happening. Togetherness is a natural occurrence, and isolation is an impossible thing.


In this vast soup of life nobody is forbidden,

and beheld in unique equality, could be exposed or be hidden.


Once we develop this realization, we feel a deep interconnection. Thereupon, at our best, we attain Oneness expressed as compassion.

There is no subtraction, nor even addition,

only the play of existence

to balance out the equation.


The forces behind manifestation follow a basic trend.

End meets the origin,

and origin becomes the end.


And those who ask, who am I? If they know that I am you, would let this “I” die away,

as this is the only real clue.


And knower of this truth, in life, lives happily ever. At death, dies fearless,

and beyond these, exists forever.


O, Beloved, the only awakening is to realize existential oneness, the rest are all suboptimal attempts, still toward it.

Love Shunya
