Why is there so much struggle and confusion in life
When aspirations of soul are apparent,
What has been given to us is quite substantial,
To deny it would be crass foolishness.
When will the lust of materials vanish,
When will the fires of ego be quenched,
When will the frenzy of desires be stilled?
All that will remain is pure soul.
When will political wars end,
When will religious bigotry stop,
When will racial intolerance be killed,
When will gender discrimination be wiped off?
In the realm of the soul lie
Tranquility, harmony, luminosity of consciousness,
Palpable stillness, transparent joy,
Moment is eternity, universe is in your palm.
