Happy The Man..

Asalamalaikum - Greetings of Peace from the depths of my heart, and salutations of happiness from my being ;)

First things first - thanks alot to everyone for the positive feedback so far.. your words just continue to encourage me...

Happy the man,
and happy he alone,
he who can call today his own;
he who,
secure within,
can say,
tomorrow do thy worst,
for I have lived today.
John Dryden

Happy indeed is he who calls today his own because he knows he has tried his utmost to please his Lord; that he has fulfilled the rights of humanity and those sharing the air he breathes. And who knows that no doubt in each 24 hours that pass, he would have lapsed in the rights due to his spirit and others around him - but who lives in the hope of forgiveness from his Lord.

Those who know me would be familiar with one of my often quoted phrases about happiness... which speaks of a man who travelled the world (on his camel of course) ...

...he travelled the world in search of his Lord,
and when he got back home -

...he realised that his Lord was with him all the time.

Simply put, happiness is just the same :)

There is no need to travel far in search of happiness, it is here, right besides us. Be content with what you have for just one moment and you would have reached the highest level a man may reach in pursuit of happiness.

What this really means is recognising what you have, as opposed to identifying what you dont. This way, you will be the happy man :)

Peace & Prayers
