Deathlessness: Poetry of Self-Transformation is the search for our own selves; it is a collection of some indications toward our own identities. The poems in this book are not set in any particular order, as nothing in life follows any particular order; things happen in life naturally, spontaneously. However, every single poem in this book is an individual seed carrying the tree of life within it that can grow higher to reach the sky of our hearts, our consciousness. The poet didn’t sow his seeds following any methods of sowing like a farmer does to sow his crops in his agricultural lan;, the poet rather went to the top of the hill and blew the seeds away from his hand into the air and let the air fly with them and drop wherever it wanted. The seeds can grow anywhere, anytime, let existence decide on where and when they should grow, perhaps that’s what the poet wished.
If the seeds reach the land of your heart, at least one of them, please let it grow and watch how it sprouts and grows within your being. These poems are the foundations, some indications, some seeds, of the existential reality that cannot be told or written absolutely, that can only be felt and experienced by your own self, in your own way. These poems only point their fingers toward a goal of goallessness, toward a time of timelessness, toward a life of deathlessness.
