A simple outlook of life

As a child, I used to wonder if there could be a simple guide-book to navigate life into the right course. As I grew up, I realized that our religious books are meant to be the perfect guides to a good life and ideal society. Unfortunately, the preachers of every religion are so busy warning and scaring the disciples(us) about Hell and punishments and the superiority of their faith, that they fail to instill the zeal to have a blissful life and the message about the simplicity of living, in us.

I wonder if the poem above, gives the right path to the way of living and can be applicable to every human on this earth.

Please leave your comments about your thoughts on this topic.

So much from this soulfulheart(pen name). Adios for now.
