she casts away
the burdens of her ordeal
through the flow of her ink
she goes back
to live her nightmare
in the silence of the dark
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. Dalai Lama
Cover your eyes and touch me
with the sight of your heart,
cover your eyes and caress me
with the fingers of your soul,
cover your eyes and hear me
through the pulse of your being,
for when you look with eyes jaundiced and jaded
with cynicism and age worn perceptions,
you can only see what your physical eyes permit
and miss seeing the finer qualities of me,
for when you look
through the sight of your heart,
and when you hear
through the ears of your soul,
you are happier
and you are free,
for you’ll find that I am you
and you are me,
we are nature.
This week’s prompt for WQWWC ‘happiness‘ is a thought that has occupied my mind in a large way and I wrote an earlier post today focusing on happiness.
I’m also working on my inspirational book that centre’s on ‘happiness and you,’ which is a strong feature in our lives.
Our state of happiness comes from within. Material things may ease our daily living but it’s no guarantee of happiness or a good life.
When we are not at peace with ourselves, when we lack the love and care for others we can never truly be happy because our minds are burdened with negativity, with bias and limitations.
‘The depth of your happiness is the consequence of your own personal effort and it’s worth the relentless pursuit.’ Jacqueline
When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.
