Paani mein meen pyasi
If I want to quench my thirst, what do you need? People say you need water. So we search for water, put the bucket, pull it out. Fill a glass of water. We've got the water, but thirst is still there. Because it is necessary to drink that water too. There are people who have various beliefs. There is a couplet from Kabir
Paani mein meen piyasi
Fish is thirsty in water, and this makes me laugh! Let's get this clear as to who this 'Meen' (fish) is? It is you. It's not about the fish, it's metaphorical to you. That which is inside, is taught to be very far, and this brings hopelessness. Our God is within everyone, No one being the exception. But the person who witnesses it, is the most fortunate!
Mohe sun sun aawe haansi
Atam Gyaan bina nar bhatke
You're not what you think you are. If you want to understand yourself, you need to understand that power that is within you.
Kya Mathura, Kya Kaasi
Mrig naabhi mein hai kasturi
Ban ban phirat udaasi
Anubhav Karna Kyon Zaroori Hai
Kabir- No-nonsense, no philosophical mumbo-jumbo, straightforward poet
