Truly Lasting

by stewart

O spiritual traveler, what is this endless hunger

That drives you to try

All manner of things?

Why are you never satisfied

With the outcome

And continually look for more?

Who placed these desires within

So you might strive to fill them?


Give thought to these questions

And examine your answers.

Often, you accept secondary phenomena

As the cause,

And do not look deeper.


Remember, hunger and desire

Are never permanently satisfied.

They are tied to the physical world

And are without end.

Only that which is of the Light

Is truly lasting.

There is so little satisfaction in the world. If only everyone realized we already have everything we need to live a content and happy life.
Thank you Stewart, for sharing yours.

Hi Alaysia:
Some days, all that is there is the Light. Everything else has faded with yesterday’s sunset. Thanks for your kind remarks. SB
