I am a doctor. Seeing suffering in this world I gave up hope of finding peace. I wandered here and there trying to run from it all. Then I came across a beautiful place. It was a bright hot day. I was sweating and tired from my trek. I decided to rest and sat on a boulder next to a flowing river. It was calm, peaceful. I could hear the birds chirping, I could hear the music of the river. I could hear the cries of the insects. All seemed to be in harmony.Suddenly I realised. Suffering is only an illusion. It too shall pass on like the flowing river and that like the smooth sand in the river bed peace is always there to be found.
