Secret of Happiness.

Baby see a butterfly
and is happy.
Baby see no butterfly
and is happy.
to be happy
no need of butterfly.

The golden truth - happiness is always from within...all else is fleeting.

But sometimes when the happiness from within is totally depleted then you go find a butterfly to try and be happy. That ofcourse is not the real thing but you try.
But I confess the butterfly happiness has only distracted me from whatever gloom I'm in but not made me truly happy.

Very true :)

A very signficant truth in that simple verse...the older ones know it, yet they keep seeking happiness outside! :)

Reminds 'The tragedy of life is not death but growth' :)

Good post, MIP

devika

Last evening hubby asked me... 'Baby happy'?

And i smiled recalling your 'secret for happiness'. Had to come back to comment. This baby was happy last evening without any butterfly.

And it felt aweseome...

Mampi said...

So true, happiness is what you find within.

Aditi Sharma said...

The Rose smells just the same when smelt alone or smelt with some one.

Happiness is a response, very internal. But always mistaken to be external.

I love the way you write.
Very Profound.
