Life is Liberation from Ignorance and Finding true Enlightenment

What is Life, have you ever thought?

It is not just to exist, have you forgot?

Is there a greater purpose for us here on earth?

Is there more to achieve in this human birth?

We humans want to be happy, but why are we sad?

We live in ignorance and feel that Life is bad

When will we stop and go on a quest?

When will we be enlightened and in peace will we rest?

We are all prisoners, we are not free

We all live in cages, suffering is our fee

Because we don't find out what is the Truth

We live in ignorance and we face the brute!

I too lived in ignorance for 40 long years

I lived with anxiety and I lived with my fears

Until one day I found out what was true

And then my Life changed with happy colours and hues

My Spiritual Master asked me to go on a quest

To put every belief of mine to test

"Wake up," he said, "and realize the truth

Ask and investigate till you get to the root!"

I found that happiness has 3 little peaks

But man is so petty, just pleasure he seeks

Few of us are lucky, we are content with our need

And don't become prisoners of our lust and our greed

The ego and the mind, they both make us sad

We think these are us, but they are the ones who are bad

They are our biggest enemies, they stop the realization

From ignorance and suffering, our Life's liberation

When we realize who we are and why we are here

We become free from ignorance and every possible tear

We can then live blissfully with happiness and cheer

Today and tomorrow, and right through the year

Happiness is all about being in the now

Not shuttling in thoughts and losing a Life that's wow

The past is gone, the future not yet born

But we waste our Life as this shuttling goes on

What is Life, have you ever thought?

"Are you just existing?" this question you forgot

If we are liberated from myth and ignorance

Then our Life will have a new fragrance

There are many beliefs that create unhappiness

We live with superstitions, the truth we miss

But because these are things that we all have been taught

We accept these things which in fact must be forgot

Don't we see that nothing is ours at death?

Life is a journey and lasts till our breath

The fact is that we have just a few years to live

Why hate and regret, why not just forgive?

We all want to be happy and we chase success

We think that success is happiness

But when we look around, we find the rich are sad

If money could create happiness, then the rich should be glad

Fools we are, in ignorance we live

We can be happy if we just learn to give

Instead, we earn and earn and earn

Only for others to burn what we earn

We don't realize that death is not the end

The body dies but for the mind, it's just a bend

There is a Universal Law on earth

As per our actions, will be our rebirth

I learned about things that make people cry

We wail in misery without asking questions, "Why?"

Life is a treasure, and this gift we lose

Because we don't discriminate, because we don't choose

Our goal is Liberation, to be free from the myth

The purpose of Life is to realize the truth

I learned that if we go on a quest, we will find

Joy, peace, and bliss of a very different kind

But instead, we are building fortunes that will not be ours

Sure, we may be rich and have monetary showers

But what is the use if our heart is full of tears

What is the use of Life if it is filled with fears!

Because we don't understand the true meaning of Life

We live with misfortune, with misery and strife

Rather we must go on a quest, the Truth to find

And be Enlightened about Ego, Body and Mind

Our goal is just one - to merge with the Divine

Instead, we live chasing wealth, women, and wine

We go on and on like rats in this race

Don't reach our destination, we get caught in the maze

There are in this world just a lucky fortunate few

Who wake up every morning before the sky turns blue

They meditate, they contemplate the true meaning of Life

They cut through the ignorance with a sharp little knife

They are the ones who live a Life full of bliss

They love all, knowing love is not just a kiss

They overcome the ignorance that envelops most of us

They find true enlightenment in Divinity that surrounds us

What is Life in the final analysis?

It's about being peaceful and finding happiness

But far more than just living with bliss and Joy

Is to discover Life's purpose before Life goes by

What is Life, the Truth we must know

It's Liberation from Ignorance knowing this is just a show

It's about Realization that gives us Liberation

Finding true Enlightenment and Divine Unification
