    In the madness of this world,
    we are always seeking
    Seeking happiness and inner peace
    Peace that eludes us as we try to attain it.
    Oh the travails we go through to achieve it
    Our mind and heart are always waging a battle
    with a rage that never seems to die down.
    The constant battle of need and greed that weighs us down

    We take various paths with the hope to reach
    Religions, Gurus, Masters and all
    Where do all this lead us, more confusion and more war?
    Finally you choose the path by reaching inside your soul
    As the war slowly makes way for peace and happiness.

    Very well written @Sride. The chatter and battle inside is something that we get indulged in without knowing that we have nothing to do with it. Like the objects outside that we observe, we need to observe the vagaries of the mind like we enjoy watching the cosmic dance. Our core that is immortal has the truth, righteousness, love, peace and non-violence and always blissful and only the wrapper is glittery but transient.
