अंधेरा पागल है कित्ना घनेरा है
चुभ्ता है डस्ता है
फिर भी वो मेरा है
उस्की ही गोदी मैं सर रख के सोना है
उस्की ही बाहौं मैं चुप्के से रोना है
the darkness is insane and so very intense
it pricks me it bites me
yet it is mine
in its lap i want to rest my head and sleep
in its arms i want to silently cry
You Permeate All, Yet Why Aren’t You Perceived? (Padavali of Maharshi Mehi)
Why aren’t You (God) seen, O spark of the eyes, O Beloved of all?
Why are You not grasped by senses, though You enliven the Individual Soul? ||1||
You pervade every particle of the body from top to toes. |
Yet why are You not caught though You fill every atom of Cosmos? ||2||
All forms are Yours, still You are Formless!
Subtler are mind and intellect, why even these are helpless? ||3||
As space spreads evenly, within and without a pot. |
So You permeate all, yet why aren’t You perceived? ||4||
Between You and own Self, he who can erase the dualism |
All his doubts, O Mehi, get dissolved; he becomes You and You become him. ||5||
 The eyes appear to be seeing, but actually these derive the power to see from the current of consciousness connected to God. If that current of consciousness leaves the eyes they are rendered useless. Hence, God, whose current of consciousness keeps pervading all our senses, has been referred as the spark or the jewel of eyes.
 Individual Soul is also called Jiva-atma. It refers to the un-liberated Individual Soul. The Pure Soul when attached with the ephemeral antaHkaran or internal organs (Mind, Intellect, Chitta and Ego) is termed as Jiva-atma or Un-liberated Individual Soul. Though the Soul is unchanging, indestructible and beyond changing states of pain and pleasure, the Jiva-atma because of its association with the mind, intellect, etc… becomes trapped into a state of illusory bondage and also experiences pain and pleasure and undergoes the painful transmigratory cycle. If the Individual Soul can, tactfully, shed all the illusory veils that keep it shrouded, it comes into its pure state which is the same as that of God, ending all dualistic experiences. That tact which helps the Soul regain its free state is inner meditation.
