Seeker Punch!

Whenever you feel the urge to take yourself and your spiritual journey too seriously, try a dose of Ram Tzu’s poems. These poems were actually written by advaita teacher Wayne Liquorman who used a pen name because he “didn’t want a bunch of miserable seekers cluttering up his living room”! So don’t expect a shoulder to cry on or a pat on the back. The only thing available here is a knockout ‘seeker-punch’.

Here’s a taste of the beautiful, hilarious and brutally insightful Ram Tzu:

Ram Tzu hears it all the time…
You had a profound, revealing,
Deeply moving spiritual experience. 

Now you’re hooked.
Now you want more.
Now you’re a seeker. 

No junkie has ever been more dedicated
Or more continually disappointed
Or more miserable. 

Once, you might have been satisfied
With a new car
Or a loving mate. 

Now you will settle for nothing less
Than union with God.

Ram Tzu knows this…
You’re fucked.

  1. Alif , each of your posts is like a sharp nail that his hammered in. Yes seeking is like that and many who tagged with the term ‘seekers’ are not different form athose seeking material pleasures , only the seeking of material is replaced with spiritual . It gets you mighty dissapointed when you find nothing and if you find you cannot hold on to it – it becomes a never ending run on a treadmill , it tires , it burns and gets you nowhere. It is so easy to get lost in this ‘seeking’ business that you do not even notice it , you pick up concepts , you build definations and you are caught in a different kind of craving – the wanting to get liberated. ,yet you have only created another prison !
