The Golden Bird

Posted by Suman on Mar 15, 2021


is a magical country.

No, not "India" of recent times.

Or of some illusionary past.

I speak of the very expanse of earth,

and the mystical power that is scattered deeply throughout its geography

and extends up and around the limits of its topography.

I will not bore you by bringing up

the specific names of the humans that

the region of land served up to the world,

and the magic that they in turn brought about.

You may already know who all I am hinting towards.

How did they do what they did?

How do they do what they do?

The answers will be long-winded.

"They are hard-working"

"They are loyal"

"They are kind"

"They are generous"

"They are ambitious"


Yes, you will hear or observe these things about them.

But the truth is dead simple.

It is something deep in them.

They are "standing" on it.

I have stated this many times.

Humans are at first their genes.

"Gene" is a label, I will elaborate.

The very visceral frame, going as deep as his DNA,

comes before what a human knows as "me".

The characteristics of this deep makeup,

have already done the job for a human Adam.

Adam may think different,

Adam may believe otherwise,

Adam may try and try and try,

but he cannot be superior to

what he already IS.

Humans from India have a unique characteristic.

And it is that of guiding the other,

or the situation,

to the Truth of the situation.

(It is a completely different matter

that only a few realize this inherence.)

Perhaps this is no new thing.

Because this may be blatantly obvious to you.

So I will go a level deeper.

Let me serve up an analogy.

This one has been inside me for a while.

India has been that one innocent,

beautiful, and wholesome,


to the rest of the world.

Something else I have stated before,

is the inherent power of a woman.

A woman will draw a man in, just by being.

Almost all men, mistake this for something it is not.

The result is the madness around relationships.

What it is, is something truly powerful and beautiful.

By drawing a man in,

a woman is also challenging him -

To not succumb. To separate.

By constantly changing colors,

By constantly offering new shades of herself,

a woman is provoking him to be serious,

to begin to understand who he is not,

who others around him are not.

In other words,

a woman is THERE

to make a man question not just himself,

but that which he thinks is "a woman",

and ultimately, his neverending desire for "a woman".

Which is but a quest for

The Truth.

I recall from my memories that

India was deemed as the "Golden bird" by its "visitors".

This is a quote I found off the internet by one Mark Twain...

The land of dreams and romance,

of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty,

of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels,

of famine and pestilence,

of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps,

of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle,

the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues,

of a thousand religions and two million gods,

cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history,

grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions,

whose yesterday’s bear date with the modering antiquities for the rest of nations,

the one sole country under the sun that is endowed

with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant,

for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool,

rich and poor, bond and free,

the one land that all men desire to see,

and having seen once, by even a glimpse,

would not give that glimpse for the shows

of all the rest of the world combined.

But alas,

the "golden bird" was then rapped, stabbed,

and robbed by multiple others.

And She,

has yet to recover.

And the world,

has yet to understand.

That hidden in their blinded robbing,

had been a quest for the truth

about their own selves.

Yes, times have changed drastically.

Yes, the world appears to have calmed down.

But I will tell you this -

Merely the shade of the robbing has changed.

It is robbing regardless.

In its many elusive forms.

"having seen once, by even a glimpse,

would not give that glimpse for the shows

of all the rest of the world combined."

Is this not what gets man trapped in

the desire for women (and money, status, and other drugs)?

Is this not the same chase

that man stays bound to all his life?

He rapes, stabs, and robs others

through his relationships and other endeavors,

only to never understand why he does what he does.

He takes and takes, never realizing the gifts

within him that he can Give.

The woman beside him, the golden bird herself,

has all the answers.

Only if he for once, Listened to Her.

Only if he for once, became serious.

Thank you.
