Tarun Cherian asserts the copyright over Big Treasures inSmall Pockets, a set of snippets that could be poems. He encourages you to read them, enjoy them, share them, but when you do so acknowledge the mind-pond of Tarun's into which they fell. You may enrich the world with them, but not share them commercially or charge a fee for them.

 

 
 

 

Section 1. Eye Openers...

 

 
1

The still earth turns like a giddy goat.

2

 

big littles

We forget God is like a child. At our peril we forget God is like a child.

3

 

Up & down do not stay up & down.

4

 

We are so clever we trick ourselves out of the good, the honest, the satisfying. And so we no longer have sunsets, time for laughter, space for joy.

5

To become truly big I must become truly little again. Put aside my limousine, pour out the champagne.

6

 

What use is your skull? A doctor used a skull as a pen stand.

 

7

Sometimes just one such day in a month, sometimes one such day in a month, sometimes one such day in a lifetime are all we need.

8

 

 

It doesn't stop when it stops.

 

 

Section 2. Impaled by The Light

 

 
9

 

 

One of the reasons why Lord Buddha is said to have left the comfort of his home is to wrestle with the question of death.

 

10

Why is the smile in the sun on the slippery slope? Because it is the beginning of creation it is the beginning of God's separation from God. It is seed leaving the tree. Some ask us why are we born? The answer is simple, because we are smiles in the sun.

11

 

We await the sunset. We all await the sunset.

12

 
13

 

We are thieves. It is not our fault we are thieves. We do not catch our own sun like the trees, or gather our own stardust like stone. We can be kind thieves. Or we can be unkind thieves. Or we can try press the reset button.

How bear it? How not hear it?

 

15

If we are pimples let us be the most humungous pimples ever.

16

The barbed wire? We put it there.

17

 

Forewarned is not always forearmed.

Section 3. Chasing God

 

 
22

 

He is here. Rusting among the dry grass.

 

 

 

23

There is Light. Sometimes it is a Tree.

24

Why do we have to lose ourselves to find ourselves?

25

 

26

 

We have 11 energy bodies. Our universe has 55,000 sub levels. 12 Meta dimensions separate our universe from the Cosmic Core.

27

Practise your insolence. Practise getting kicked for your insolence. Practise getting rewarded for your innocence.

 

 

The Oddities of God

 

 

28

We create our own reality. We create a dynamic reality. A stimulating reality. An enriching reality. A rejoicing reality. And that's very different from a curl up in the bed reality.

29

 

At a certain point, the future does not follow the past.

30

Across a world we can heal. A thought here a Tsunami there. Oddly scientists say the same thing. Chaos theorists speak of the flap of butterfly wing in Tampa that births a cyclone in Tokyo.

31

 

32

God wears a watch. It's borrowed from Salvador Dali.

33

According to the physicist gravity binds the universe. According to us mystics the cosmos is a singularity. What I do here can shift there. A reassuring thought. and disturbing reality.

34

 
35

We are shadows. We are whispers of promises we do not always plan to keep.

The Seeker's Ganges...


 

 
36

 

Thankfully Talking to God is usually a one-way street. When it becomes a two way street then it becomes really interesting for God.

37

Like all fine-sounding promises we have to wait and see.

38

 

 

Will the debate between the hallucination theorists and the elusive reality propounders ever cease?

39

The ultimate secret of awakened living is revealed by the glow worm. If it were revealed in the ultimate way we would go blind or catch fire.

40

I have Dear God but little to offer, but Dear God it is yours.

41

There is an End to The Journey.

Dear seekers eternity salutes our courage & foolishness, our faith and faithlessness...

   

 

 

 

I dedicate this Big-little book to Celia, Amma, Buffy, Talitha, Tambi, Gozga, Lady Izreatong, Lord Erewhon & Lord Yahumma...And the dragonflies, breezes, rivers, raindrops, oceans and breezes that lifted my eyes into the dizzying skies...
