By Akanksha Thakore September 2010 Ever told your body, mind and soul what you think of them? And heard what they had to say in turn? A body ballad“I belong to you, you belong to me”‘Oh really!” screamed my body“You don’t relate to me muchNor take good care as suchWhere are you when I cry out in painTrying to get your attention in vain?”“I’m right here, and I want to listenWith vitality, I will make you glistenJust talk to me aloud and speak outInstead of sulking with a pout”“My ways are many and subtleOften making you run and scuttleThe pain that bothers you soIs my voice, didn’t you know?“The more you ignore, the louder I will yellMy story the agony will tellIf you take a moment or two to be stillI will talk to you – I will“Doctors are needed notRight here lies what you have soughtBreathe, and allow us to reconnectNever letting yourself disconnect“For if you doLet me warn youIt will get worse You have seen me rehearse!“Come back to me and love me like beforeWe shall stem the tide and reach the shoreIt’s mutual care, my dearWhy store pain and fear?“Set me free and I shall do likewiseTogether in harmony we shall riseTowards good health, energy, and zestLet me govern, give your mind some rest”“You speak so true, and I hear you nowTo your wisdom, I humbly bowI will pause and listen every once in a whileKeep talking, body, in your inimitable style.”A memo to the mind“It’s amazing how much you control me,I want some peace, but you just won’t let me bePushing and pulling in every possible wayYou tire me out every single dayThough you are in me, you have a life of your ownI can’t remember when these seeds I’d sown.”“You sowed these seeds every time you let me go Allowed me to turn from a friend into a foeI’m restless and fidgety and need to be whackedBut instead, my whims you merrily backedEven some loving discipline would have doneBut you let me recklessly runAnd so now I no longer askMy impulses I enticingly mask“Entice you do, take me on many a manipulative tripUntil on my emotions, I have zero gripYou create fanciful worlds, complex games, and dramaBut heeding you creates such a hungamaI want to take charge, give shape to my lifeNot let your volatile swings fill me with strife“You can do that, my dear,” said my mind“Some stillness and solitude you must findLet me jump around while you sit and observeBe my master, let me serveMeditation and awareness will get you thereAbsolute responsibility you must bearFor left to me, I won’t give up controlYou risk a burning heart, a crying soulSo seize power, seize it nowShow me who’s the boss, make me bow.”“Oh mind, I set off on this quest againThis time though, not in vainThe pursuit of mastery is an ongoing oneRiddled with challenges, sprinkled with funYou shall aid my growth, not impede itI will keep you in check, agile and fitYou are a worthy ally once I show you your placeThis unique relationship I hereby embrace.” Soulspeak“Who am I and who are you?Questions that are anything but new.You are oft referenced, but seldom understood.Do you stand for all that’s good?!”“Good and bad are your labels,I come from the land of fables.Without a beginning, without an end –Can your mortal mind comprehend?You and I are separate and yet not,I am what you have always sought.”“You confuse me with all this.Are you saying you are the source of all bliss?How are we separate; in what ways same?You are me, can I not claim?!”‘Try to think and you risk losing sight;Move away from me and you create this plight.I am to be experienced, not deciphered.I am the shepherd, you are the herd.I am a fragment of the divine,My voice is a Universal sign.Just like the flame that belongs to a fire,I am a part of consciousness higher.But the flame unto itself is also whole, So is complete every human soul.Your ‘I’ is your ego; it makes you ‘you,’Weaving reality around your worldview.Ego keeps you distinct, but also separates;Creates conflicts with the ‘others’, your earthly mates.“I am your anchor, your link to all that IS,The timeless connection that is never amiss.Connect with me, see the miracle unfold;At every step, your hand I will hold.I have brought you forth and will take you back.With soul by your side, there’s nothing you lack.”“Such profundity has come my way Guide me, oh soul, night and day.Lift my spirits, make me congruent and whole,That I may retain the truth as I play my worldly role.”
