My Deep Meditation Experience: A Rhyme to Inspire

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


I have lived with several Zen masters, all of them cats.

-- Eckhart Tolle

In my meditation I turn into an alternate kind

detached from my body, my ego, and name

like personalized version of universal mind

while in no single detail staying the same.

Stripped of importance with no surviving care

and personality switched out of commission

my soul feels plain, innocent, and all bare

while even void of any spiritual ambition.

If I didn't know better, it could be my ghost

that's how nicely light and bodyless i feel

with that blissful emptiness I feel the most

which stays the only thing that looks real.

And I seem to know it all, whatever it may be

as the one observing won't give it a meaning

for nothing really matters whatever I can see

that essence of me just insists on its cleaning.

Waking up gives me some mixed emotions

on one hand it's regret experience is gone

but then mind is purring with divine notions

about joy and freedom -- things to dwell on.

A good trace of it stays for the rest of the day

to help at telling apart my ego from my soul

but to describe that feeling there's no way

being detached and free from every role.

It's my daily tune-up that I immensely enjoy

making me feel young, happy and light

like a century old, but still just a boy

with everything in life feeling right.
