A Beastly Machine Man Life!


Living away from Nature many are stranded nowhere,
From where know not where to proceed or what to do!
Mechanically trained in the name of discipline all lose all
And never able to realise what is their natural self here!

Many do things contrary to their natural desire or self
And lay waste hidden power unused rotting to madness!
This is the trend for modern man in the civilised world
Just pursuing beastly economic targets to fulfilment!

Physically, intellectually and spiritually dissatisfied man
Roams as scholar gypsy to find peace and satisfaction,
which not religion or philosophy will provide except Nature
As Nature is living scientific art that sustains all forever!

So, economically developed man should develop socially
In harmony with Nature to find longing freedom, joy and peace!

    Enlightened treatise on the problems with our mechanized and techno trends. We are slowly becoming servants to our own machines, but those machines are mindless and unfeeling. We no longer communicate by touch, smell or sense. We communicate in digitalized symbols and pictures. We pursue money which has never bought one shred of true happiness while nature is free and loves all. We fear being economically broke so we become emotionally broke. (Report) Reply

Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
