Thinking Happiness - Robert E Farley

Think of the things that make you happy,
Not the things that make you sad;
Think of the fine and true in mankind,
Not the sordid side and bad;
Think of the virtues of your friendship,
Not the weak and faulty side;


Think of the gains you have made in business,
Not the losses you have incurred;
Think of the good of you thats spoken,
Not of some cruel, hostile word;
Think of the days of health and pleasure,
Not the days of woe and pain;
Think of the days alive with sunshine,
Not the dismal days of rain;


Think of the hopes that lie before you,
Not the waster that lies behind;
Think of the treasure that you have gathered,
No the ones youve failed to find;
Think of the service that you may render,
Not of serving alone;
Think of the happiness of others,
And in this you will find your own!



God gave me what I needed - Vivekananda

When I asked God for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face

When I asked God for brain and brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve

When I asked God for wealth
He showed me how to work hard

When I asked for favors
He showed me opportunities to work hard

When I asked for peace
He showed me how to help others

God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed!



Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs. - Dr. Maxwell Maltz



Thats just it--
you cant drive it, you cant wear it, you cant live in it,
you cant drink it, smoke it, snort it, you cant travel to it.
Happiness is the experience of the journey.
The experience of happiness is the result of how you look
at things. When I look at something I say, can do,
no problem; thats not going to make me unhappy.
Happiness is a choice! - Denis Waitley

In the course of time, the future becomes the present, the present merges with the past and makes it a history.

We have / had a better appreciation in the beginning of the millennium "say" in the morning hours of 2000. We have seen solid five years in the new phase of the calendar. Where do we stand?
Hard to change is our attitude to see our country and people to come up at the earliest and the latest.

Pondering over happiness...

Happiness and sadness are emotions that are within our power of choice. The decision is made inside the heart.

Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger you only when you permit yourself to be disturbed by him.

Happiness isnt a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; its stopping to enjoy the rainbow.

The habit of cheerfulness is like a rope that is woven day after day, until it becomes nearly unbreakable.

The only path that is right for you is the one, your heart tells you to follow.

If you are hurt by little things, yours is still a petty mind.

Worrying keeps you trapped. Thinking sets you free.

A positive attitude cannot be taught, it must be caught, therefore, be careful of the company you keep.

It pays to listen to others. Everyone knows atleast one thing you dont.



God often looks at things differently than most of us. To Him, pride is a weakness and humility a strength. - Epictetus (55-135 AD, Roman Philosopher)


Dont get through thinking before thinking things through. - Unknown


Hatred, resentment, and vindictiveness sour us on life, but love, forgiveness, and mercy put the sweetness back in.

Pride is like bungee jumping: The initial thrill is followed by lots of ups and downs, and eventually youre left hanging.

Resentment and bitterness over past wrongs are like rocks that drag our spirits down. Only when we let go of the rocks can b
