Poem: Inner Journey – Spiritual Media Blog


By Dr. Archan Mehta


Why are you busy

Chasing superficial,

Shallow and fleeting pleasures?


Please let me give

You a few examples:

Driving a fancy car,

Owning expensive mansions,

Buying the latest gadgets,

Purchasing a private jet,

Showing off your jewelry

To the hapless masses, such as

Diamonds, pearls, rubies,

Sapphires, emeralds, etc.

And, obviously, this

List goes on as you 

Carefully cultivate your

Public image and make sure

That people with power

And influence are familiar 

 With your “rags to riches” story:

After all, who can resist

A self-made billionaire?


When will you realize

That only the experience

Of bliss consciousness can

Fill the void in your life?


Why are you roaming

Around here, there and



Why do you still feel

Sad, lonely and frustrated

Even after bringing home

A trophy wife, winning awards

And honors and being invited

To public functions as a chief guest?


When do you plan to

Make contact with your soul?


If only you would

Sit down in one place

And experience the joy

Of silence, stillness and solitude.


A new world will

Surely open up to

You, but you need

To give it a chance

In your restless and 

Hurried and worried life.


It would be wise

To retreat gently

Into the experience

Of just being

And you will feel

Like a new person for sure.


It is time for

You to learn the 

Lesson of our ancients:

The wisdom of celebrating

Your own company instead

Of wandering outside

And drifting aimlessly

In search of solutions

To the challenges

Your face in life.


You don’t have

To feel like

A stranger in

Your journey through life.


The sanctuary you

Crave is within

Your own self:

You can retreat there

Whenever you feel

Like it and forget

About worldly attachments

 while your unenlightened

Peers still feel like exotic

And endangered species

Living under the

Constant threat of extinction.


It is time to dive

Deep to save your

Own life for the home

You crave lies nowhere

Else but within your own soul.
