Conscious Drift

Carrying dark clouds as a sheath underneath

Ready to burst at their seam

The ashen sky’s thunderous lightening

Pronounces a reflection of life’s impending theme

 

Warn it does of a punitive strike

For resisting to seek a safe shelter

Providence is guiding, heed its call

Rather than running helter-skelter

 

Seamless as seasonal changes occur

Transitions ought to follow suit

Stagnant waters gather moss

Little drift may lend to new channels en-route.

 

These aren’t just passing clouds

Pour they will to heart’s content

Lashing the fragile state of mind and

Sullying peace till its last remnants

 

Abort the wretched journey, long endured

In gloomy, damp, inclement climate

Pastures abound where sun shimmers

Just take that leap of faith, don’t procrastinate

Living Life Free from Problems

Life can never be completely free of problems. When only one person lives there will be no problem but when there is more than one person, problem becomes a given. No two persons think alike, look alike or have similar tastes. So there are bound to be differences and judgements born thereof. This creates disharmony and tension. What is the solution to live a life of Peace?

Truth is multi dimensional. Truth has also so many perspectives. Through our eyes we can see anything, either this or that. With the possibilities of different perceptions there is always scope of difference of opinion and conflict. It is difficult to understand the truth. The greatest truth is the truth of conduct.

There is a fear in the world. We are scared of sorrow. When there is possession, there is fear. Where there is no possession, there is no fear. Giving up possession and observing restraint is the solution to today’s problems. The essence to a fearless life, a peaceful life is through restraint.

The human being has to set limits to all activities. Observe limits to consumption, possession. Limitless consumption is the reason for our problems. Anger, delusion, ego and greed are veiling the truth from our vision. All these passions are born with the desire to possess beyond our limits. Let us try to overcome our greed for possession.
