Strive for Immortality

The knowledge that you gained The money that you amassed The fame that you won Would be left behind The body thinking of which you spend your life The family for which you dedicated your life The world which you gave more importance than self Would be left behind Everything is dynamic everything transient Every second a new world born Nothing is permanent everything dying With death all left behind Attached to temporary objects Our self lost in serving them When will we live for self? Attached to fleeting thoughts Swaying with them Living in emotions, forgetting the moment One day we disappear from the scene That which remains is soul Waiting for new skin A new picture Our good deeds remembered But of no value to us As soul we regret forgetting self Based on karmas another birth Endless cycle of mortal life Regretting every time at death Stupidity going on since eternity Why not end this movie once for all Think and live for soul Liberate it through salvation Use brains for something worthwhile Reflect on your real goal in life All scriptures state the same All cannot be wrong at the same time If you feel they are not right, Is attachment to temporary things right? Is having expectations from uncertain right? Living for selfish humans who use you Cry how they'll survive when you die Not much enjoying is this intelligent living? Is this right? Isn't world selfish? Isn't all transitory? To be attached to mortal world is it not stupidity? Seek that which is immortal Attach to it for eternal benefit Serve it, please it, become immortal 24.07.2021 For Chantelle Anne Cooke, IMMORTALITY YES OR NO

An incredible write. "That which remains is soul Waiting for new skin A new picture" So empathetic and correct!
