The Value of Happiness

What do you want from your life?

  • A big home?
  • A high-paying job?
  • A big car?
  • Lots of money to spare?

A lot of us, in fact most of us, want these things. Have you ever pondered why?

John Lennon once said-

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

Is that true? Yes, it is. Mr. Lennon understood that, and had only one aim in his life – to create music, and make people happy. I mean, who hasn’t heard of The Beatles?

The goal of all endeavors in your life is one – Happiness. All the things that you genuinely want (or have ever wanted) ultimately lead you to only one answer “I want to be happy” if you ask a simple “Why?” to every question posed to yourself.

So aim high, and aim sincerely. Channel all your energies towards achieving it. Take my word, you will be happy.

Resolute Fantasies

I fantasize!

.. And I get stuck up all these hours
I lie awake, every second gambles
Insane contemplations, bluntness showers
A steadfast heart, and my mind rambles.

I look into the past, to places never been
And the world seems to pace down
I yearn for it all, for bliss never seen
A craving to quench, a wish to drown.

I see my eyes closed, I hear my breath
And long for a better meaning in life
Today, tomorrow, for each day till death
For evanescence of hatred, for recession of strife.

I behold myself as someone I ain’t
As someone in the past, I could’ve wanted to be
The clouds darken, the feelings faint
And wander around for a better lee.

The past is gone, and I hide behind
Beneath the thunder, I hear the skies
God’s own ways, I strive to find
The mirror reflects a dream in my eyes.

The heavens envision, and I so deviate
A determined desire burning inside
Fuelled by fascination the reflections so create
A step aside, let my heart decide.

I wanna runaway, for courage I own
For magnanimity of thoughts, for mentations that prod
I’ll reach the crown, for the seed once sown
For the feeling I’ll get in the abode of God.

I’ll give one life to be there
For the prized promise I see in my eyes
And sacrifice all happiness, for the world won’t care
To dream of a dream where it all lies.

It now rains heavier, but the rainbows glaze
.. And I won’t let my voice sound hollow
I’ll look up for the days, and will run new ways
For wherever I’ll go, my dreams will follow.
