Without Fear

by Randal Persad

In 2011 thru guru's grace attending the Yoga Nidra conference in Rishikesh and staying for 3 weeks at the Ashram was a life changing event. Today, 18months later, the teachings are still percolating and are having a profound influence on daily life. A few months ago after a silent and breath awareness practice the urge to write bubbled to the surface. The poem below was revealed.

without fear

I sit in my room quiet and alone
If feels like my soul is coming home
To feel my body in its space
I begin the journey for gurus’ grace

The silent breath, it’s gently flow
Allows the lamp inside to glow
Spine is straight and upright
I look inside with inner sight

The waves of thoughts are all around
I wait and listen for the sound
I hear his voice whispering the prayer
Live your life without fear
