events & worldly circumstances wheel fast around me & i wonder, am i turning too or watching it? swiftly changing, the whirling blur is too fleet to discern faces & forms, only movement, the great dance of life. shifting my gaze inward: constancy, here, the point the wheel revolves around. here is the steady living presence -- Lord Shiva, You populate my heart! other loves are reflections of You, all constantly pointing back to You. this is my inner knowingness now. this is my comfort & nourishment. Your ceaseless companionship teaches what is real, good, true & beautiful. Let the world rush in its spurt of speed -- i cleave now to the Auspicious One. Shiva, i am devoted to You!
