There used to be a time I thought

enjoyment was drinking a glass of wine

There used to be a time I thought

enjoyment was smoking cigarettes

 

Like this I thought

enjoyment means running after women

enjoyment meant going to the discos

enjoyment is seeing movies

enjoyment is going to social parties

 

Suddenly everything reversed

The glass of wine became the

glass of truth

The smoking cigarettes became

the deep inilation of fresh prana

 

Women were there before

Women are there too now

Not out of lust but love

 

There was dance  in the discos

Now too there is a dance

But a dance to the tune of God

 

Movies were there before

and are still there today

But the movies are there of myself

my inside movies

my casual thoughts

 

Social parties yet exist

But it is called satsanghs

 

Before it was gossiping for belittling others

Now it is gossiping for ‘play’

 

Before it was gossiping about others

Now it is gossiping about myself
