THE MAGIC OF EXISTENCE IV

 

Philosophical Poetry by Nadeem Haque

May 2009.

 

 

 

GOD, THE UNIVERSE AND FUN

 

 

Believing in God does not mean having to be so dull and serious

 

It does not mean that life cannot be luxurious

 

It does not mean that we are to be austere

 

Since fulfilling God’s commands is so very dear

 

Believing that God is One

 

Does not mean that you cannot have fun

 

What it means is that over you is an eternal Watcher

 

When you hit the ball there is always a catcher

 

So in your fun do not miss the big picture

 

Do not harm yourself, other humans, animals and nature

 

You can have recreation on earth

 

But always remember your re-creation from the earth

 

 

 

 

TRANSFORMING THE EARTH INTO PARADISE

 

 

Why can the whole earth not be transformed into a Paradise ?

 

Why must we blindly follow corrupt systems we ought to despise?

 

There is no real so-called democracy

 

All that exists is a plutocracy

 

Society ought to be based on proof we can see

 

If we want to truly set our lives free

 

 

 

 

THE REALITY OF GOD

 

 

Oh God! If this universe of Your imagination, seems so real

 

Then how unimaginably intense is Your Reality, if truly we feel

 

How could anyone therefore deny the true intensity of your existence?

 

How and why should anyone show you such resistance?

 

Humans and Jinn tragically forget the following factor:

 

That You chose, for a test, to be a behind-the-scenes Actor

 

I see now why Moses fell onto the ground

 

But saw the reality when he finally came around

 

“Show me Your Self” said he

 

To which You replied: “The Mountain or Me!”[1]

 

The imagination lets Your intensity be shielded

 

But when You reveal Your self, what’s in that space is yielded

 

Just as particles, give way by crumbling,

 

So too must we prostrate, to experience the humbling.

 

 



[1] Quran 7:143
