Happiness.......keeps knocking!

Life is not only about problems and the daily grind. We are so absorbed in the routine mundane things that we fail to see things beyond them.

On a typical day how many of us look beyond the things we need to do and the problems on hand.

We must discern from the fact that even after we have achieved the so called targets and accomplished the tasks we set for ourselves; does it mean it has given us happiness or a sense of satisfaction? In most cases the answer would definitely be a "No".....Why is it like that?

If you think beyond all the reasoning and intelligence....... we must understand that basically everybody has a human element in them and by default nature has made human beings with a blueprint to do good.
When things don't turnout that way unhappiness creeps in.

So the crux of the point I was making about not getting happiness after achieving things and completing tasks on day to day basis ........ is that most of these tasks and targets are for personal needs or gains.

It is important to have spectrum of vision beyond these mundane tasks ......... which of course have to be done! But it is more important to listen to happiness knocking on our doors while we go about the daily grind.

It could be the beauty of the untouched morning sunrise, it could simply be doing small things for others when they don't expect it, or the innocence we see in a child's smile.......there are number of things happening around us which can give satisfaction and happiness of greater magnitude if we choose to see beyond ourselves.

So let the theme for the day be "Look Beyond..............Happiness Is Just Round The Corner".

  1. Well said Jaggu, we keep blaming darkness around us and fail to see millions of star in the sky, how beautiful they are.

  2. HI Jagdish, Agree with you completely...reminds me of a poem we read in school ..

    WHAT is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare?—
    No time to stand beneath the boughs,
    And stare as long as sheep and cows:

    No time to see, when woods we pass,
    Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:

    No time to see, in broad daylight,
    Streams full of stars, like skies at night:

    No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
    And watch her feet, how they can dance:

    No time to wait till her mouth can
    Enrich that smile her eyes began?

    A poor life this if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.
