Concepts 4


I’ infers ego, ‘we’ confers harmony
‘You’ emphasize aloofness
‘Ours’ advocate togetherness
Moves the life with all these characters

Jealousy starts with comparison
Greed starts with discontent
Lust starts with lingering temptation
Frustration activates all these infestations

To look beyond the needs is greed
To look beyond the bonds is detachment
To look beyond the world is realization
To look beyond the life is enlightenment

Very dear to any one is one’s own life
Not even money can change this tripe
In saving our own life we let others go
For life is greatest living that is sweetest!

    To look beyond the life is enlightenment '' (Report) Reply
