Poems about Happiness

happy

Do you want to be always happy?
Then give up fighting
For negativity
And learn the beautiful art
Of self-encouragement.

- Sri Chinmoy

You want to end your unhappiness.
I tell you, there is one way
To end your unhappiness,
And that is to end your constant feeling
Of unpleasant unworthiness.

- Sri Chinmoy

To be truly happy
You must do two things:
You must overlook
The imperfection-evenings of others;
You must look over
Your own imperfection-nights.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

The problem with fault-finding
Is that he who finds fault with others
Is in no way a happy person
Even after he has successfully
Accomplished his task.

- Sri Chinmoy

Here is the secret of my happiness:
I keep the mouth of my little self closed
And the heart of my big Self open.

Be happy, be happy!
Unless you are happy,
Your outer life will not succeed
And your inner life will not proceed.

He is happy,
Because every day he tries to do
And actually does
A little more than he thinks he can.

Happiness

Happiness, happiness!
My dear friend, happiness,
My unparalleled friend, happiness!
You help me to defy death’s existence.
You help me to purify sorrow’s presence.
You help me to strengthen my weakness.
You help me to enlighten my strength.
You help me to see the face
Of promise-dawn.
You help me to feel the heart
Of satisfaction-moon.
You help me to lead
The human in me.
You help me to feed
The divine in me.
You help me to fulfil
The Supreme in me.
My Eternity’s friend, happiness,
You were, you are
And you shall forever remain
My Eternity’s only true friend.

- Sri Chinmoy

I am happy because I always choose the right moment.
I am happy because I am a good listener.
I am happy because I keep my voice down.
I am happy because I do not try to convince others.
I am happy because I do not complain.
I am happy because I have realised that the most important thing in my life is,
Self-improvement.
I am happy because I unreservedly accentuate the good in others.
I am happy because I have considerably cut down on my desiring needs.
I am happy because I follow my thought-control program every day.
I am happy because I never quit.
I am happy because every day I offer my heart of gratitude to the Supreme.
I am happy because a daily prayer of mine is:

“O my Beloved Supreme,
Do transform the world
Starting with me, my life, my all.”

- Sri Chinmoy

~

True happiness
Is not a mental hallucination.
True happiness
Is not a complacent feeling.
True happiness
Is the spontaneous feeling of joy
That comes from knowing
You are doing the right thing
And leading a divine life.

 - Sri Chinmoy

Happiness

If we can cry with the human in us
When the human in us cries,
Then there is happiness.
If we can smile with the divine in us
When the divine in us smiles,
Then there is happiness.
Happiness is in identification;
Happiness is in oneness-reality.

- Sri Chinmoy

I am Happy

I believe everybody;
Therefore
I am happy.
I love everybody;
Therefore
I am happy.
I think of God every day, everywhere;
Therefore I am happy.
I am happy, I am always happy
Because
Heaven lives for the cries of my heart
And Earth lives for the smiles of my soul.

 - Sri Chinmoy

You Will be Happy

Minimise your wants,
You will be happy.
Fulfil your needs,
You will be happy.
Divinise your thoughts,
You will be happy.
Immortalise your faith,
You will be happy.
Rectify your mistakes,
You will be happy.
Intensify your cry,
You will be happy.

 - Sri Chinmoy
