Find Your Happiness

We have all been in a place where everything seems dark and it feels like an endless tunnel with no light at the end of it. It’s a difficult phase in life and it happens to everybody. Some may pretend as though nothing ever wrong happens to them and as though everything is hay and happy in their life. It’s a lie – a big fat lie. They are just kidding themselves. I call it ridiculous. On the other hand, some may call it positive thinking and looking ahead in life.

The actual, real, genuine smile is the one that flourishes from the happiness within one’s soul. It shows in the twinkle of one’s eyes and not on the wideness of one’s grin. And that can’t be pretentious. It has to be real.

She Walks In Glorious Grace

She walks in glorious grace,
Her beauty lies, not in the charm of her face.

But in the compassion of her touch,
That in its tenderness, words need not speak much;
And in the serenity of her mind,
That in its calmness, endures the raging wind.

She walks in glorious grace,
Her beauty lies, not in the charm of her face.

But in the twinkle of her eyes,
That in its innocence, show no vices or lies;
And in the charity of her soul,
That in its benevolence, reaches out to all.

She walks in glorious grace,
Her beauty lies, not in the charm of her face.

That Special Moment

The winds were strong. The skies were getting dark. The kids in the field stopped playing. They all stared at the skies above – a flash of light, followed by an earth shaking thunder. And then - a drop of water on the face. I knew the rains were coming, and they were coming hard and strong. A downpour and we were all drenched and soaked in the rain. The kids were cheering, laughing and running. I was happy, jumping and beaming. I knew I would get rebuked by my mother later. Who cares? I was happy, and that is what mattered. I was with nature, and that is what mattered. It was cold, it was raining hard, and I was filling it all in me – the smell of the earth, the sound of the rains, the joy of nature - and drinking in the glory of nature. Like a mendicant filling himself with God, I filled it all in me. And then suddenly, my eyes opened, I woke up and realized … it was a dream. Well, a sweet dream at that. Good morning everyone!
