Why Does A Person Fear?

Why does a person fear?
Why does he or she lose cheer?
How does a person achieve?
How does one get mischief?

What is the aim of a life?
Is the age sixty of a person ripe?
Why does a person miscarry?
Why does a person speculate fairy?

How to survive in this earth?
Can a person avoid rebirth?
Many questions arises in person's mind,
What are the solutions have to find?

A person fears for his or her unjust work,
Telling a lie leads him or her to murk.
Virtuous qualities like truth and nonviolence
Bring a person peace, bliss and silence.

Noble works, hard labour, bring ascent for person,
Meditation brings calmness and righteous action.
Aim of life should be to do good for nation,
And to do for soul will always be the notion.

Night comes after day and vice versa is sure,
Rebirth must come after death, action should be pure.
God can solve each problem if we shall do well,
Let's meditate him and save life from hood's tale.

    he is never satisfied
    despite all the things are lied
    his expectations are belied
    as on things, it has been relied

    the mind has become directionless
    and explores sinner ways
    no positive feedback is accepted
    and on wrong things, it is prompted

    Hasmukh Mehta

    As the New Year approaches it is fitting to ask questions about our future course of life. I like the questions you raise... Reading them puts me in a contemplative mood. These questions challenge the reader to examine him- or herself honestly. Meditation is a path by which our understanding grows day by day.

    We shouldn't allow fear to subdue us! In fact fear stems from a guilty conscience. A person who leads a virtuous life and whose actions are just and in the right direction, he needn't fear anything! A man of lies will be constantly under the fear of being caught and exposed! To have peace of mind, one should stick to righteous ways! A poem full of nourishing thoughts!
