A Full Stop To Slavery - Ii

No one is really free in this world;
But nobody knows about the other world.
All are roaming round for peace, joy and liberty;
Where they are getting these
There they are settling to live;
That is the nature of any reasonable man;
But those who commit to any community
Are contrary to Nature in this world community.

It’s well if love and truth are the basis of world culture;
Community consciousness should not affect social activities;
Communal feelings should not spoil the social progress;
Communal differences do affect the functioning of the society,
Peace and unity of nations blocking one world moulding activity,
Which no cultured person can tolerate in the modern world.

Moon, the slave of Earth rotates round it;
It is the natural law it cannot escape from it.
So also Earth and other planets rotate round the Sun.
Tree anchored to the ground gives fruits and shelter;
If man, a moving being, stands still it is an achievement!

Bird cannot live in water and fish in the air;
But frogs, crocodiles and hippos can live in water or on land;
Tigers that hunt the herds cannot graze like the herds;
Cattle cannot hunt lions or tigers to live as lions or tigers.
This is natural justice they all have to follow for survival!

Then man is a slave of his own habits too;
He is a slave of his own emotion;
He is a slave of his own intellect;
He is a slave of his own spirit;
By his very nature he may have control over his habits
And can become a master of his own self;
But he can never become a master of his own fate.
Fate and fortune are framed by the laws of God.
But the laws of man can be changed by time!
