Every living creature wants to be happy. To be happy, people seek
something: money, power or sex. But even after getting it one is not
happy. God wants to see us full of enthusiasm, joy, compassion and
happiness. Creation wants to see us happy. Yet we keep on postponing our
A child thinks he will be happy when he goes to college. Once in
college he thinks he will be happy when he starts earning. Then he
thinks he will be happy once he is married. And the story goes on and
that special day never comes! All of oneâ€™s life is spent in preparing to
be happy someday in the future. Itâ€™s like making a bed all night but
having no time to sleep.
There are two ways of looking at life. One is thinking, â€œI will be
happy after achieving a certain objective.â€ The second is saying, â€œI am
happy, come what may!â€ Which one of these do you want to live?

Your senses are trying their best to find happiness for you all the

experience it because you are searching for it outside.

discuss who among them had seen the ocean. None of them could say they
had actually seen the ocean. Then one fish said, "I think my great
grandfather had seen the ocean!"
A second fish said, "Yes, I have also heard about this".
A third fish said, "Yes, certainly, his great grandfather had seen the ocean".
So they built a huge temple and made a statue of the great
grandfather of that particular fish, saying, â€œHe had seen the ocean. He
had been connected with the ocean.â€™â€™ Our search for happiness is like
What are you waiting for? Instead of preparing to be happy, be happy
now and resolve to remain naturally happy. God is trying his level best
to see you happy. He has created so many things for you to be happy. But
God only helps those who help themselves. So everyday make a
resolution. â€œToday, I am just going to be happy, come what may. I will
not let anything disturb my happiness. I am going to be contended and
