What are We Rushing for ?

What are we rushing for?
Blind wealth?
Arrogant fame?
Superficial love?

We have been taught
to reach the goals very fast
to be always the Number 1
in the rat race
Even relationships need to be
planned, systematic, down to Earth

In pursuit of this illusory mundane,
We often become
stressed, depressed,
antipathic , egoistic,
inhumane, vain

O Human Race!
O Friends!
What are we rushing for?

It is shallow
It is a living death

Let’s take a deep breath,
Learn to let everything go,
No bonds, no pain, no regrets ,
Let’s connect to
the Divine
the soul within us

Over there we always find

O Human Race!
O Friends!
The essence of human life is
to discover the true self
to know the real God

Life often calls for a halt
in sublime silence,
perfect peace ,
It wishes our minds, bodies and souls
be merged in the wise poise

So Human Race,
My dear friends,
What  are we rushing for ?
