Be Happy in the Now!

What's the use of crying, in a Yesterday that's gone?

What's the point of worrying, in a Tomorrow not yet born?

Why not live in bliss and joy and peace?

In the present moment be happy, be happy, can we please?

Be happy in the NOW, this moment is a Gift

Smile and dance and celebrate, don't just exist or drift

It is in this moment, that we can choose to be happy and glad Let's not

lose this moment, to memories that make us sad

Yesterday is a place, that we just can't go

The past is an illusion, it's like a dream- a stage show

There is no way of being happy, in a moment that has passed

The only thing it will give us, regrets that will last

The future doesn't exist, it's just another dream

It looks so very real, as long as we worry and scream

How can we be happy in an illusion of the mind?

Let's wake up to the NOW, let's not be blind

Everybody wants to be happy, who doesn't want this gift?

Who doesn't want to enjoy their life with a lift?

Everybody wants pleasure, nobody wants pain

But they look for it in wrong places, stressed and in vain

Of course, we can be happy, in every moment of life

It's a choice for us to live, with happiness or strife

If we decide that we want bliss, joy, and peace

Then we must be happy before this moment will cease

Happiness is not only becoming a millionaire in this world

Are the rich the only ones happy? See this truth unfold

There are many who are fulfilled and content in life

Though they have little, they are happy and they smile

What's the secret of happiness? It's being happy in the NOW

Not shuttling from the past to the future, we must not go

We must learn to remain in the present moment with ease

Then bliss, joy, and happiness will blow like the breeze

Our mind is like a monkey, it jumps here and there It doesn't let us be happy,it wanders like a hare

If we truly want happiness, turn the monkey into a monk Being in the present moment fixed like a tree runk

The way to joy is 'Surrender', to the Lord's divine will

Not living with hope and expectations, not worrying about bills

The future will unfold, as per the Lord's divine plan It's for us to be happy, whatever comes in our pan

Why live in regrets, of the past that's already gone

It's the Master's wish that happened, why regret all that's done?

The way to joy is to accept the Lord's divine will And not curse and nurse, and rehearse every ill

Happiness is simple, if we learn to live in the NOW

Joy and bliss are possible, for those who go with the now It's not in the

future, nor in the past, but in the present

We must realize that happiness happens moment by moment

Be happy in the NOW, that's the only way to be

Don't be worried in tomorrow, to there we cannot see

Don't rehearse the past that's dead and gone

Be happy in this moment, as if we were just born
