THE MAGIC OF EXISTENCE IV
Philosophical Poetry by Nadeem Haque
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!”
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.
