To achieve virtue in the absolute sense, a man must be willing to the foulest crimes upon his soul - for the sake of his brothers. Flesh is mortal...... soul is not. True virtue is in mortifying your soul. So you think you love the broad mass of mankind? You know nothing about love. You give two bucks to a strike fund and you think you have done you duty ?? Fools.... NO gift is worth a damn, unless its the most precious thing you've got.

Are you ready to give your soul ?
to a lie ? yes, if others believe it.
to deceit ? yes, if others need it.
to treachery, knavery, crime ? Yes !! to whatever it is that seems lowest and vilest in your eyes. Only when you can feel contempt for your priceless little ego, only then you can achieve the true broad peace of selflessness, the merging of your spirit with the vast collective spirit of mankind.

There is no room for the love of others within the tight, crowded miser's hole or a private ego. Be empty in order to be filled. The sacrifice that includes the destruction of one's soul....... is only for heroes to grasp and achieve........

unse nazar kya milii roshan fizaaen ho gaiin,
aaj jaana pyaar kii jaaduugarii kya chiiz hai....

khultii zulfon ne sikhaaii mausamon ko shaayarii,
jhuktii aankhon ne bataaya maikashii kya chiiz hai.....

ham labon se kah na paae unse haal-e-dil kabhii,
aur voh samjhe nahiin yeh khaamoshii kya chiiz hai.....

Isolation is the said to be the most effective form of human torture. Mere hours of sensory solitary can reduce the strongest of men to tears. Days of it will drive them to madness.

I have been at it for years.......
