Rule # 23- Meaning of Life

Meaning of Life by Arsh


Rule # 23

Life is a temporary loan, and this world is nothing but a sketchy imitation of Reality. Only children would mistake a toy for the real thing. And yet human beings either become infatuated with the toy or disrespectfully break it and throw it aside. In this life stay away from all kinds of extremities, for they will destroy your inner balance.

-The Forty Rules of Love

At this time, what I get to wonder most of the time is “what is the meaning of this life?” It’s not that I don’t know the purpose. But the way things are in this world, do you think one can survive with full satisfaction and peace? Everyone is running from one place to another in search of something. By the end, either they’re left with the things undone or words unsaid. In short, life will never take you anywhere. It will just leave you in the middle of nowhere. Not because we don’t achieve things that we strive for, but because the things that we achieve in this life are meaningless.

Rushing in the clouds

Following the dreams

Squeezing through miseries

Reaching the screams

Falling easily apart

Watching the beams

There exists a mystery

Yet never seen


-Arsh Azim
