Actually, You want to RULE????

Mind is slave  to many  things  that are absolutely  temporary  but  give immense bodily pleasure  and thus this mind is engaged  in accumulation  of such resources  which makes one POWERFUL and can easily  consume all those money buying pleasures....
I am totally confused  with the way people are  running  around to achieve  material  gains and then  with stress  and all sorts of manipulation stuffed within, rush to temples  to balance  it off.... The question  still remains... What is it that we are aiming  at????
Temples  where each one should  be treated equally is also busy  in categorization  of praying  preference  within the temple premises  based  on POWER.... This is a sad state  we are living into..... The more we are advancing technically , the more  are our human values deteriorating....
I remember  a very apt question  asked by a renowned  author  to self acclaimed  spiritual  guru of current times. He asked the  guru, "is spirituality  only for  the rich?" A mind boggling  question  which  unfortunately  our great guru  couldn't  answer..... But it left me in a thinking  process  as to..... If minutely observed.... People without  resources  who are struggling  to experience  peace  within  aren't  even exposed  to any learned individual  who can  initiate  the push  within  that  person  to step  on path  of spirituality.... If at  all then  they attend  mass lectures of these  enlightened  people, they are forced to believe what they understood  and unfortunately, most  of it is loaded with fears...... So people end up into religious  ritual  and seldom spirituality  per se....
The scenarios  around  make me feel  strongly  that  ultimately  as we are slaves  to innumerable  habits and  things, heart of hearts, the POWER  ACCUMULATION  RUN is also targeted  at making many around  us slaves to our power  and that's  usually  the sadist  hidden desire  which no one will accept....
With or without  substance, if  an individual  is powerful, he automatically  has dictating  powers  to  feel like a ruler... If not world around  then immediate  family  members  and friends  are  most  likely  ones  who  are  victims  of the  powerful  arrogance...
Its a devastating  viscous  circle  and unfortunately  more and more educated  and learned  people are victims  of this  urge to accumulate  huge power  to satisfy the inner desire  of ruling over others..... I  encountered  an eighth  grade boy who  openly expressed  his life goal  was to become  GOD, so  that  he can rule  all..... I  wasn't  annoyed, rather was  worried  about  the huge suppression  within  this boy who is desperate  enough  to vent  it  all out as soon  as he becomes  powerful....
People, its wonderful  to be  successful , but what's  the ultimate  aim  of life is not to be misunderstood  and clubbed with  professional, material  success..... It can prove hazardous  if aim is not right.....
Take care
