I am a monk

I am a monk
Living in a divine state
Fate brought me to a mundane world
I’ve rose red robes
Which adorn me
Like a beautiful flower

I chant and pull the rosary
I’ve been chanting prayers
Prayers for all sentient beings

I... oh! I should’ve been
Been the same
Till I saw you my beautiful lady
You are indeed charming
Like a crystal jewel

You, my fair lady
Have immense power
A strength of a lion
A beauty comparable to an angel
I am all yours
Ready to leave my robes
Ready to keep away my rosary
                                                               Ready to be lost in you


 want to live happy in life...  everybody dreams the same around the orb. I too believe in it. But what is happiness? Where is happiness? How can we have happiness? Do we need to embark on a sacred journey to a farfetched heavenly mountain to attain happiness? 
Happiness is a state which can be achieved by everyone, starting from the poorest and most unfortunate.  It comes in to our lives every moment if you let it. I would say it is very easy to control or get it.
The era we live in is an era of unhappiness. How can we be happy if we want for more and more? I simply believe that happiness is achieved when you are content.  A man owning a sedan will not be happy with a sedan if he dreams to buy a SUV. Our desires, i mean human desires are in a way awful. If you have this, your desire wants that. Our desire, worldly desires shuts the curtain between happiness and our life. Unless you say that it is ENOUGH, happiness will walk in front of us, not along with us. The word enough is said only to pain but you completely take it out of your vocabulary when it comes to your desires.
Observe a child presented with a fluffy toy, his reaction is immense and he is very happy indeed. Now, the same child loses his toy, look at him wailing. Happiness is a state of mind, a light state which takes the flight of the fastest wings; it is momentary. From the child’s instance, I want to convey that you must let go sometimes or quite often. Life is a journey and if you doom yourself over long gone things, it will be hard to attain happiness. You lose your dear ones and obviously you are sad but you must also know that your sadness is not going to get them back. All in all letting go some instances in life and limiting your desires will float you nearer to Happiness.
We live in a fast changing world where things take a great pace. We work a lot. Happiness is also determined by work sometimes. If you love your work, you will be happy. When you are happy, you work well and make others happy. In this matter, you are becoming a guide taking other people towards happiness. Love your work and you will be happy.
Thus, I make a point of message that you live happy if you let ill thoughts drain out of your mind and always be satisfied with what you have. I am neither a philosopher of great knowledge nor a happiness therapist, I am a mere human being in search of ...I want to live happy in life...
