The Ultimate Goal of Life MEN- Moksha Enlightenment Nirvana

by Air Atman In Ravi

What is the Ultimate Goal of Life?

Why this misery, why this strife?

We want happiness, but don't achieve our Goal

Because we don't realize we are the Soul

The world believes that we were apes

Jumping on trees and eating grapes

And then from apes, we became MEN

A magic show from one to ten!

In ignorance, we live and we die

We look at the sky, we pray, we cry

But why we are born, we don't find out why

Who are we, who is this "I"?

We don't go for a search and quest

And we don't put our beliefs to test

Whatever we are told, we believe the myth

We suffer because we don't know the Truth

But there were wise men, the Truth who knew

They were not many, they were just a few

They went on a quest to find the Truth

They didn't just accept, went to the bottom of the root

Who is the Creator of this wonderful earth?

Who causes death, who gave us birth?

Yes, our mother and father were part of the plan

But this Divine work is not that of man

There is a power unknown to us

There is no doubt, let us not fuss

We don't know who, where and, what is God

But there is a Creator who is our Lord

There are some who believe 'to heaven we will go'

When we die at the end of the show

But where is heaven? Does anybody know?

And if the body stays here, then who will go?

There are others who believe that God is a man

Living in the skies doing what he can

Once in a while, he comes to earth

To fulfill our prayers, our joy, our mirth

And though we know Santa is a lie

We believe in the myth and don't ask why

We just exist, we live and die

Without asking the question of who and why

We have a body but that's not 'ME'

We are in fact, just energy

To find this Truth is our Ultimate Goal

That we are, in fact, the Divine Soul

Moksha it was called many centuries ago

It was Liberation after death, this Truth we know

And then there would be no future birth

And we would not have to return to earth

Those who don't know are born again

The law of Karma is for all men

The law says what you sow, you reap

Good or bad, both we get to keep

And then came about the concept 'Enlightenment'

Realizing the Truth, getting fulfillment

It is about not being ignorant

And knowing the Truth for our betterment

For like blind men, we live in the dark

We think there is nothing, except the dogs that bark

But because we are blind and cannot see

We believe there is nothing, how can this be?

From darkness to light we must go

What is the Truth, this we must know

For if we don't, as we live and die

We will suffer in misery and cry

Siddhartha was a Hindu king

Who refused to believe just everything

He went on a quest the truth to find

And awakened his consciousness, transcended his mind

The Buddha said Nirvana was a state of bliss

It was achieved by realization not making a miss

Living with Four Noble truths and Eight-fold path

He said we can escape from misery and wrath

For what is a human being's life meant?

Must we really take a spiritual bend?

Why must we know we are not body and mind?

What is the necessity of the Truth to find?

It is important for us not to live like fools

We are blessed as humans, we are given tools

Discriminating with an intellect what is right and wrong

Questioning every thought, becoming spiritually strong

But it is really sad, we just live and die

What is our purpose, we don't find out why

We are given this birth, who is this 'I'?

We just believe, living with the lie

And because of this ignorance, we are miserable and sad

We want to be happy, but we can't be glad

If the A to Z of spirituality we get to know

Then we will truly enjoy the show

This life is a special gift for us

It is not just a moving bus

Which starts at birth and death is the end

Each moment is precious, to be wisely spent

If we realize the Truth, that we are the Soul

Then we have achieved our Ultimate Goal

There will be Joy, Bliss, Love, and Peace

Misery and sorrow will completely cease
