(Trying to summarize what I learnt about the art of living. It did teach me to share; share the peace, share the harmony, share the fruit of virtue; apart from learning to develop equanimity towards our craving and aversions. Here it goes ..........)
"Sanjit, there you go."
"Kritajna, here you feel."
...........Oh! Isn't life full of,
People, Actions and Reactions?
Did you know?
Every single action,
Has a bio-chemical reaction?
Some lead to cravings,
While others create aversions.
It depends on the inputs,
And the self developed conceit.
That is why they say,
It is not the words,
But how you are made to feel,
That is remembered!
These cravings and aversions,
Are like lines fragile, erasable or deep.
Fragile, like the line on the water,
Erasable, like the line on the beach sand,
Deep, like the line on the rock.
Until you get rid of these lines,
They keep growing into mangled misery vines.
Sheela - the morality,
Samaadhi - the awareness,
Panya - the wisdom,
Helps develop patience and equanimity.
Equanimity for the cravings and aversions,
Resulting in peace, harmony and good virtue.
Isn't happiness all that?
May we develop and share the same.
