Waiting for an Angel?

राह देखते हैं घर में फ़रिश्तों के आने की
और घर के दरवाजे पे कुत्ता बिठा रखा है  

Raah dekhte hain ghar me farishton ke aane ki
Aur ghar ke darvaaje pe kutta bitha rakha hai.
                                                                (Unknown)


"We are eagerly waiting for the angel of peace and bliss to come into our house (mind). 
At the same time, we have kept a 'dog', sitting at the entrance, guarding the door."


In the western traditions, the angels are always dressed in white robes, which is a symbol of peace and bliss. 

In eastern traditions, 'dog' is a symbol of greed and excessive desires. 

How can peace and bliss enter the mind if there are so many excessive desires and so much of greed? 


                                                'Rajan Sachdeva'
