In search of peace

So much sorrow, so much tears, so much pain, so much injustice... the world over...
The more I think about it all, the more I get inclined towards... spirituality!

William Shakespeare said long ago,

"All the world's a stage,

And all the men and women merely players:

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts,

His acts being seven ages."

I am not sure about the number of ages. That can probably differ. But the main essence is that we are merely playing our parts. Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Lover, Spouse and all other relations that we get entangled with daily are for a very short term. After that each will go in his/her own way, never ever to return again. Yet we cry for others, yet we fight for others, yet we die for others. But all in all, it's maya! It is essential that we recognize the one and only Him! There are people who do not believe in God, who do not believe in spirituality, who do not believe in souls! I know everyone has the right to think and feel in individual ways! But believe me, there's no other alternative to finding peace and tranquility other than taking shelter under the Divine! And that does not merely mean chanting hymns day in and day out! That means each one of us should ensure that our actions put a smile on at least one face every day - easier said than done. That also means getting rid of the mohas (attractions)! Not easy!
Probably I am not the best person in the world to preach all these, but I feel it's high time that we start practising! Preaching without practising is meaningless! The root of all problems, all sadness, all bitterness, all envy and every negative emotion that you can possibly think of, is moha (attraction, greed). If one can win over it, then he/she is well on the way to eternal bliss and happiness!
