Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi Ki Har Khwaish Pe Dam Nikle

No comments:
हजारों ख्वाहिशें ऐसी कि हर ख्वाहिश पे दम निकले
बहुत निकले मेरे अरमाँ, लेकिन फिर भी कम निकले

डरे क्यों मेरा कातिल क्या रहेगा उसकी गर्दन पर
वो खून जो चश्म-ऐ-तर से उम्र भर यूं दम-ब-दम निकले

निकलना खुल्द से आदम का सुनते आये हैं लेकिन
बहुत बे-आबरू होकर तेरे कूचे से हम निकले

भ्रम खुल जाये जालीम तेरे कामत कि दराजी का
अगर इस तुर्रा-ए-पुरपेच-ओ-खम का पेच-ओ-खम निकले

Have we lost our souls????

I am reading about the notion of Soul loss a book on Shamanism and Jung by C. Michael Smith. It has me thinking that the angst I see that so many people I work with and what I see unfolding in our society is about this concept of soul loss. This term would have been used to refer to a person who was depressed or possessed by some kind of illness. In our time it is well suited to describe the malaise we feel that underlies our addictions and feeling of lacking in purpose…emptiness. One of the ideas behind soul loss is that it causes us to feel like we have lost our vital energy. Do you feel excited and motivated about your life? Are you rearing to get up each morning and live your life with that kind of spirit or are you numbed out and tired of the same old same old. One of the ways we get back our soul is by trying to find a way to bring back what is sacred.
