Master I created

I seek Master to give me salvation
For it is written in scriptures
I seek Enlightenment and Liberation
But nothing shall I surrender or leave
I know Buddha, Mahaveera and Krishna
I know the rest of the so called great beings
I am better than them, I know so
I have read and re-read all their sayings
Web and books are filled with them
Too simple and too old I know
I am new and I am the thing for this time
A Master I seek just for obliging him
He too becomes a Master and is proud
Of having such a soul as a student
A Master shall be one who is pure
For he would only see purity in me
Dare he not try to change me
In return I shall chant his name
Share his name with others
Is it not enough for me to do?
I am making him immortal by name
He should know and bow down to me
A Master is one who is selfless
I need not follow what he teaches
I have queries which take me beyond
Knowledge of queries makes me greater
For I can hold my ground with it
His truth is simple, my life is complex
Adamant, logical and rational am I
He follows the path of intense faith
Neither he asks nor do I follow him
A Master is one who is beyond
He should ask me what I want
He has to strive for me to gain it
For, it is my right and he is for me
A master I made what more to do
I took initiation and leant back
Rest is his task, his work and his vision
I seek enlightenment and salvation
His task should be only to enlighten me
A Divine‟s slave I have for I am divine
Need I require the Divine?
Kicking the slave is enough
Salvation happens for one who does nothing, I know
Salvation happens for dogmatic people, I know
I am one who is beyond yet I asked
I sought a Master, how humble am I
Looking in the mirror I see the Master
The Master within me, so powerful
Broad shoulders and even broader ego
In the shadows I see the Master I made
Weak and withering, tired of the load
Should I not kick him out?
For he is not the right one
He worked on me but was not good
He worked for me but was not good
Food never I gave him for he was not good
Such a lazy person I made the Master
He needs to be left for he is useless
I need not be part of him I am better
Rather he should feel good and happy
For I made him my Master
I know now what he can give me
Like a piece of used up paper
I can throw him and grow beyond

Matter taken from Eternal Thoughts it can be purchased from Tatvas

The core is the way a modern seeker comes to a Master and how the ways and means become part of the seeker.

Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
