The Supreme It

The slothful

  Sluggards

  Say: He is far, far, far

  Away!

But the Supreme It

Is spread everywhere
on Earth and in Heavens.

O you poor dumb ones,
running
stunned and suffering
through towns and fields and forests
in Search!

He is right there
within you!

Stand still
and feel Him,
feel!

- Sivavakkiyar
