Delve In ‘Selves’


It is just not the emotion but more than that, very strong, very fascinating and it trapped me in the crown of jewel, the best of all, the rest of all, quest of all and nest of all …… ‘Myself’ is a core of that crown of jewel, it contains selves, many selves, but most known the seven selves as explained by Khalil Jibran:

‘’In the silent hour of the night, as I lay half asleep, my seven selves sat together and thus conversed in whispers:

First Self: Here, in this madman, I have dwelt all these years, with naught to do but renew his pain by day and recreate his sorrow by night. I can bear my fate no longer, and now I must rebel.

Second Self: Yours is a better lot than mine, brother, for it is given me to be this madman’s joyous self. I laugh his laughter and sing his happy hours, and with thrice winged feet I dance his brighter thoughts. It is I that would rebel against my weary existence.

Third Self: And what of me, the love-ridden self, the flaming brand of wild passion and fantastic desires? It is I the love-sick self who would rebel against this madman.

Fourth Self: I, amongst you all, am the most miserable, for naught was given me but the odious hatred and destructive loathing. It is I, the tempest-like self, the one born in the black caves of Hell, who would protest against serving this madman.

Fifth Self: Nay, it is I, the thinking self, the fanciful self, the self of hunger and thirst, the one doomed to wander without rest in search of unknown things and things not yet created; it is I, not you, who would rebel.

Sixth Self: And I, the working self, the pitiful labourer, who, with patient hands, and longing eyes, fashion the days into images and give the formless elements new and eternal forms — it is I, the solitary one, who would rebel against this restless madman.

Seventh Self: How strange that you all would rebel against this man, because each and every one of you has a preordained fate to fulfil. Ah! Could I but be like one of you, a self with a determined lot! But I have none; I am the do-nothing self, the one who sits in the dumb, empty nowhere and nowhen, when you are busy re-creating life. Is it you or I, neighbours, who should rebel?

When the seventh self thus spake the other six selves looked with pity upon him but said nothing more; and as the night grew deeper one after the other went to sleep enfolded with a new and happy submission.

But the seventh self remained watching and gazing at nothingness, which is behind all things.’’

Self is the disclosure of many aspects, of many jewels, of many shells, having pearls of sands, having soap of water, of surf of waters on the shores; it has shadow very rare and exceptional sinking water, deep, blue and treasure holding.

Self soul is not just one n number it has many converse layers because if it can be measured through the eyelid of mysticism, it became most rare pearl having many flashes and shines in it, multi-colors lights that cover through the identity within identity.

Such philosophy is not understandable to those who just live one life based on materialism; they can’t get even the minor ray or tiny little hole to peep into the world of mysteries of crown of jewel.

The souls who could always be thoughtfully extravagant, terse with realities, awaken with the voice of inner mystic, bathe with the height of tragic truths and rejoice within their world of galaxies are actually the trace keeper.

They follow and find infact the length and the meaning of tracing the shadows of their own. What is this shadow, to the soul the apparent body is just like a shadow as it appears in darkness, the light of soul illumines it with the gallop of realistic rays of ultimate truth.

Body shadow on the phase of earth gives the same impressionistic approach which body actually gives to the soul inside. Unless one self be insidious, can’t actually quest this mystery…..

Soul is not actually intellect, neither the heart spirit, nor the emotion, neither it is the motivation or any inspiration, nor is it any kind of worldly objective apprentice, nor any vicissitude of tempest, neither the symptom of any predication that sooner or later fulfilled.

It is in ethereal appearance, liquid yet in shape, it is door to the another way and world to understand the language of the world which introduce the innocence in existence, purity as emotion, virtue as intellect, modesty as senses and honesty as tastes but neither this world understand this version nor the usual common humans they are many in races but few of origins and connected to their actuality.

We easily commence the Mystics, Sufis and the Hermits as merely and occasionally lunatics because we don’t actually cop up with their true sciences of nature and natural journey of soul essence.

There are so many rhetoric questions, what are actually existence compact of, why we are here, enough of self wars, enough of communication with inner self, enough of the angel or devil concepts, enough of the inner war of good or evil…….Just simply enough……

The shadow of light (Soul) which is trapped in the pot of mud (Body) is actually the order of Will of Creator who contrast it with the light, converse it as mirror, sharp it as still water drops and maketh it the most divine origin, the most deeply thoughtful and meditative, bathe it with spirit of mightiness and confine it with supreme quantative qualities and compass it with merits and demerits. It has been ordered to live to be alive from the day first till the Day of Judgment…….

Awakening is the sign of its’ knowledge, sleep is the divine mercy for its more awakening and spiritual enhancement, it is strangely connected with the under waters, with the mystic above heavens and all in all with the connectivity of the Truth, Knowledge, Kamaliayt, Jamaliyat and Tajaliyat of Creator but one who quest the way for the source of rays, often talk deeply, usually conversed with profound SELF.

Whenever, one drove to the converse realties actually the intension and attention drives by the soul essence, the selves, no matter what how many faces, layers of self characters are but it is due reality that Self remains recognized with the virtue of ever living goodness and by making it enslave to the Creator’s command.
