Conscience

Rating: 4.6
Our conscience,
Like an old fragile pilgrim,
Is in search of the holy land within mankind's soul,
Because everything is transient,
And only the soul is eternal;

Our conscience,
Like a tired servant to light,
Found its timeless bed in a clear and pure tear;
Our conscience,
Like a centennial explorer of kindness,
Is the voice of the man in the glass:
'Man, don't seek happiness in the expanses of power and wealth,
Because real happiness is hidden in the paradise oasis of inner harmony.
- Love, compassion, humility, kindess and integrity
Are travelling the path of dreams,
Like centennial messengers of light;
Love, compassion, humility, kindess and integrity are the
Faithful guides to the paradise land of harmony.
If you want to feel inner harmony,
Look into the sun that is,
Like some heavenly blacksmith,
Dilligently and passionately forging harmony in human souls;
If you want to protect your inner harmony from sin,
From the other dark self,
Find your shield in the light of the soul.'

With due respect, Sir Rajnish... The soul is different from spirit as they both differ from the body (I Thes.5: 23) . The body and soul both die (Job 14: 10; Ezek.18: 4) while the spirit goes back to God after death (Eccl.12: 7) .... Thanks for the friendly exchange of thoughts on the issue.... death (Eccl.12: 7) ...

Love, compassion, humility, kindness, and integrity are dependent on the relationships we have. Sometimes, it is hard to love the enemy while being a believer in God. What really means to be an enemy of a believer in God, of God Himself? It means to live in darkness, to be blind, to be ill, not to know how it is to live without other enemies. All these enemies need that Light coming from God and need His love. More exactly, these enemies have a desire TO love and to understand why it is not healthy to live while being surrounded by hate and with hate within. For this purpose, they must learn to love, to be compassionate, to be humble and kind in their integrity. Excellent poem. God bless. Voted 10.

With due respect, Walter, the soul is not eternal but it dies (Ezekiel 18: 4) ....

The invisible Self (Atma, Atman, the soul, spirit, the life-force) is eternal. The visible physical body is transitory, and it undergoes changes. The reality of these two is indeed certainly seen by the seer of the truth who knows that we are not this body, but the Atma. (Srimad-bhagwat-Gita 2.16)
