Broken Dreams
Life is just like a dream
With just a blink
An old man says, it was like yesterday, he was a boy
When we were young and played the game children play
There were all sorts of plans and daydreams
To have this and to have that
And life like a fairy tales
Unfortunately most dreams were broken
A beautiful wife turned out not to be
A happy family turned out not to be
A dream house turned out not to be
A dream car turned out not to be
Endless broken dreams and broken hearts
Isnít living miserable and hard?
But if one knows the purpose of life
There is great joy
Despite all the sufferings and trouble
It is a chance in a million
To transcend birth, death and rebirth
The animals here have no chance
The suffering souls have no chance
The bad spirits have no chance
Do not be down hearted by broken dreams
Think positively and look towards spiritual development
One day you are bound to understand and realize
Every suffering is a Buddha seed
A parable by Jesus,
"The kingdom of heaven is liken to a grain of mustard seed,
Which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown
It is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree
So that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof."
When your broken dreams materialized into the giant trees
And bear abundant fruits
The hungry birds will come to feed on it
The tired animals will come to rest under it from the burning sun
Even human can eat the fruits and rest underneath, how great!
Do not be despair if broken dreams are still broken
Your affinity by reading this book and this story itself
Shows you are bound to realize the affair of the Heaven
It is different from the affair of the world
Never give up
Broken dreams will become
Sweet Dreams
