Am I the Singer or the Song?
An estimated 100 million songs have been written, sung and released.
The same spiritual inquiry applies to all of them.
AM I THE SINGER OR THE SONG?
Who is singing?
Is the singer separate from the singing?
Is there one activity going on?
namely just singing?
or are there two activities?
– the singing and the singer?
If there are two activities,
do they co-exist with each other?
If they co-exist, then the singer could interrupt the singing,
The singing could interrupt the singer.
Does the singing and the singer exist apart?
If they exist apart, which one comes first?
If there is a singer without a song,
then anybody can call themselves a singer.
If there is only singing,
Then who states “This is singing”?
Am I the singer, singing and the song?
If so, then am I tied to three identities?
Am I something else?
Let us not reject the singer, the singing and the song.
Let us not live in the spell of the singer and the song.
Ah, anguish for the singer dissolves
Ah, anguish about the singing and song fade away
Ah, peace of mind reveals the Creative.
What a sublime joy – to know the untying of the Creative.
Let’s sing to that.
