Idleness: the loneliest existence in the entire world

1.

Idleness is

The lover of death.


2.

Idleness is

The host of death.


3.

Idleness is

The death-night-distributor.


4.

O idleness,

You are evil

From the sole of your foot

To the crown of your head.


5.

Idleness,

You torpedo

God's Dream-Boat.


6.

Idleness,

You ruthlessly compel

Life-energy to starve.


7.

Idleness,

You desire the stars in the sky

To be at your beck and call.


8.

Idleness,

You are the mind-butcher,

You are the heart-puncher,

You are the vital-crusher,

You are the body-undertaker.


9.

Idleness,

You are arrogant within,

Abhorrent without.


10.

Idleness,

You do nothing for the world,

Yet you secretly and openly desire

World-attention, world-appreciation,

World-admiration and even

World-adoration!


11.

Idleness,

You want everything

For the asking

Inside your empty

Body-hole.


12.

Idleness,

Your inner life, if you have any,

Is all sadness.

Your outer life, if you have any,

Is all bitterness.


13.

Idleness,

To our wide surprise,

Futility-luxury

You can always afford.


14.

Idleness,

You constantly ask time

Not to look at you.


15.

Idleness,

Time does not want

To be snubbed by you.

Therefore,

It does not approach you.


16.

Idleness,

You are absolutely certain

That doomsday will never be able

To strike you.


17.

Idleness,

Your eyes do not even

Try to hide

Their envy-look.


18.

Idleness,

When are you going to realise

That yours is the loneliest existence

In the entire world?


19.

Idleness,

In stupidity

Nobody can equal you.

You do not care

To cross the finish line.

Not only that,

You do not even care

To be at the starting line.


20.

Idleness,

While voraciously eating,

You complacently hear

Others' victory-horn.


21.

Idleness,

Your beyond-repair brain

Is adorning the abysmal abyss!


22.

Idleness,

You are at once

Frustration-reservoir

And frustration-generator.


23.

Idleness,

You are a slow poison-enjoyer.


24.

Idleness,

You do not want to be

An aspiration-student,

But you do want to be

A God-realisation-professor!


25.

Idleness,

You have taken the surrender-way

To self-annihilation

And not self-perfection.


26.

Idleness,

In vain

The unconditional affection-world

Tries to please you.

In vain

The unconditional dedication-world

Tries to please you.


27.

Idleness,

Secretly you treasure,

Openly you treasure

Displeasure-breath.


28.

Idleness,

Yesterday I saw you mumbling.

Today I am seeing you fumbling.

Tomorrow I shall see you crumbling!


29.

Idleness,

You want the whole world

To love you.

Without being loveable,

How can you be loved?

Can you not see that the world

Hesitates for a very long time

Before it condescends

To love you?


30.

Idleness,

Unless and until

You seriously and fearlessly

Look at yourself,

Your happiness-dream

Will always remain

A far cry.


31.

Idleness,

Can you not see

That your joyless and godless days

Have neither a beginning

Nor an end?


32.

Idleness,

You do not value

God's Concern.

You do not value

God's Compassion.

You do not even value

God's Forgiveness.

You just value your mind's

Happiness-hallucination.


33.

Idleness,

When will you be aware

Of the undeniable fact

That unawareness

Has befriended you,

Unwillingness

Has befriended you

And, in a broad sense,

Stupidity and futility both

Have inescapably

Befriended you?


34.

Idleness,

Time is our master.

Our aspiration, dedication,

Self-giving-everything-

We have surrendered

To the eye of time.

But you want time

To helplessly surrender

To your every whim!


35.

Idleness,

Who else is an inevitable victim

Of self-doubt,

If not you?


36.

Idleness,

An insatiable hunger you have

For world-praise.

But you want to do nothing,

Absolutely nothing,

For the world.


37.

Idleness,

Strangely enough,

Quite often you are enamoured

Of what you have

And what you are.

What you have

Is nothing short of stupidity,

And what you are

Is nothing short of futility.


38.

Idleness,

A seeker devotedly enjoys

A full-time God-job.

You enjoy a full-time

Self-indulgence-job.


39.

Idleness,

Never do you want

To please God.

Never do you want

To love God.

Never do you want

To serve and fulfil God

In God's own Way.

Therefore, it is no wonder

That your mind is bound by sin

And your heart is bound by guilt!


40.

Idleness,

Are you not afraid of

God's Silence-Thunder-Eye,

As we all are?


41.

Idleness,

When God asks you

To do something,

You always ask God

To show you how to do it.

While He is showing you

How to do it,

You purposely fall into

And enjoy

A deep and never-ending sleep.


42.

Idleness,

How successfully you hide

Your outer aggression

And your inner retrogression

From us!


43.

Idleness,

Ignorance-night

Is our partial possessor,

But your full possessor.


44.

Idleness says to dynamism,

"For God's sake,

You don't have to shed tears

For me."


Dynamism says to idleness,

"My friend, it is too late!

I can't help it."


45.

Idleness says to dynamism,

"Why do you so peculiarly

Look at me?

Do you think I am

Deplorably pathetic?"


Dynamism says to idleness,

"Unfortunately,

You are absolutely right.

But do not worry.

I am sleeplessly and unconditionally

Sympathetic."


46.

Dynamism says to idleness,

"Wake up!

Stand up!

Walk up and down!

When are you going to be wise?"


Idleness says to dynamism,

"Shut up, shut up!

Slow down, slow down!

When are you going to be careful?"


47.

Idleness says to dynamism,

"Let us bury our past criticisms

Once and for all.

I do not want to remain

Shattered by my fate's blow

Anymore."


48.

Dynamism says to idleness,

"My friend, my dear friend,

My oneness-friend,

Do not build towers

Without a foundation

Anymore.

Do not trust tomorrow.

Tomorrow is an old and expert

Deceiver.

It is high time for you

To leave the land

Of self-made fools.

Happily look every morning

At the rising sun.

Hope, without fail,

Will be your guardian angel.

God is showering upon you

His Heaven-Heart-Forgiveness-Blossoms.

Just place yourself at His Feet

With your mind's prayerful readiness,

Your heart's soulful willingness

And your life's cheerful eagerness."
