But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I should do it.

 

 

When ever I sit to meditate,

I pray wishing-

Before I undergo a full transformation,

Before I finally sign out

I would had tried to expressed all that I have been feeling

Something which I can`t tell;

And its neither love nor hate

Neither Pity nor joy "

                       

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I should do it.

 

"Doing good, not because I fear punishment, or perhaps because I was told that whenever I do Good, I will be rewarded from beyond.

Nevertheless I will keep-up, doing Good because I love humanity,

And respect mankind.

Nowadays we don`t do Good for the sake of Good but because we fear we wouldn`t receive blessing.`

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I shouldn`t fear.

 

          I fear to fear

"I have no fear. I don`t feel fear, and my concept is-fear is man-made and has to be destroyed. Once we stop fearing and have conviction in the force of truth, we go ahead "`

       (M.A to BBC World Service, Dec. 1987)

 

 

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I should do it.

 

Doing all I could, now

Such that when next,

I am signing "in again

Together with others,

We will be reaping all what I had sowed.

Consciously or unconsciously.

 

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I shouldn`t do it.

   

Committing crimes,

Manifesting evils,

Harming the world unfriendly,

And distorting progress,

Happily, I lie down to sleep.

Only to wake up finding out that the world is still.

Same stories, same happenings years behind me

Then! I will be blaming those who had lived before me

Blaming them for had been wicked, and unfriendly to this beautiful world.

(Smile) little will I be remembering that

I too, was among those I am today blaming.

 

                    

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I shouldn`t do it.

    

Why should I throw words of ill luck?

Condemning their behaviors,

Cursing mankind

Cursing them curses generations to come

Unknowing that that day shall come,

I will be among the generations to come

Where I will be praying for deliverance, casting away all that ill luck which had been casted upon me, and accepting repentances,

And will be preaching to thousands, millions of people about the joy in becoming born-again.

That day, I will be performing rituals to appeased all those who had lived before me,

why I shouldn`t do it, because it`s all going to come back to me.

 

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I shouldn`t do it.

    

Forcing mankind to sign-out

Often becoming my passion as well as seeing them transforming

Though I know I will one day follow them

But that wouldn`t be so soon, saying to myself.

(smile) ignoring weaving one hand behind my ear.

Shortsighted was I, today I am feeling the senses

But if we do believe in reincarnation, forcing mankind to sign out is making no difference,

 here!

Since they will still come back and must accomplish all what they had left unfinished.

 

 

           " "sitting on my bamboo bed under a raffia- palm tree behind my smoke thatch house, pondering feeling a deep bite in my marrows as the fresh breeze flows over my body.

From a distant, I am hearing a sweet song, whistling birds tonelessly.

I imagine my first day into this world, I remembered when I was young (chuckle) though I am afraid saying this, but the truth remains that one day this flesh will become humus " manure to this raffia-palm tree which today I am sitting under eating its loose nuts.`

But if we do believe in reincarnation,

This gives me the more reason why I should love "

 

Love,

Smile

Never regret making people happy.

But cry for letting it be this way

 

"mon plaisir est le plaisir de l`autre!`
