' Wise One Is Only an Evolved Fool'
Truth is beyond reach of man with ego.
when ego at center as bright as star,
planets revolving around it are
desire, anger, pride, jealousy and envy!
Narrow will be mind, visions and words distorted,
unless intelligence and reasoning balanced.
The seeker of truth bold to turn all stones with faith.
Logic and 'Viveka', ability to separate false and truth!
Kindness and love follows viveka as ethics.
when one sheds off ego, never care critics,
His reasoning points its finger towards himself
he finds nothing as truth, in search of own self!
Infinitesimal life span of one's body and mind,
Eternal life span of universe in contrast,
brings knowledge of oneness of life every kind,
love and kindness flow out of his heart at last,
Knowing that a ' wise one is only an evolved fool'
he can bear with (or accept) other's foolishness.
