she's there waiting

in one of my mind's meanderings, there came this figment of a remembrance, one of those days way back in college when i chanced to visit the park's breakwater by the sea ... i was able to observe this girl, she was with some companions enjoying the sea breeze and the silky touch of early sunshine on our skins, she had this faint smile etched on her face,  i supposed she felt happy, just as i supposed i was happy that time.

i think we are like this at some moments in our life, we just suppose to be happy.  we just force a smile to be etched on our faces.  genuine happiness feels a lot different, if only for a fleeting moment.

there's a girl that i know
who loves to go to the shoreline
and looks at the sea with her blind eyes.

she's always there
waiting for the sun to rise
for she believes it's rays will make her see.

and the waves make her smile
but the smile's all in vain.
and the waves make her smile
but the smile's of a fool.

the Old Sages and Masters have taught that genuine happiness is achievable.  we only need to remember how to get at it.  the key is inside our True Self.

we might be blind outside, but, inside, within the Inner Self, we are all-seeing...  let us all begin the journey towards genuine happiness.  the first step is to close the eyes.  then, start to look within.  discover the Inner Self.  let us all remember, the True Self is ever genuinely happy.

i always quote henry david thoreau when it comes to talk about being happy. he said, in his book walden, -- "the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation..". i believe it is this "quiet desperation" that we must all resolve.

you've explained it perfectly Sito,
the journey truly does not begin
until we venture within...
