The happy man's shirt

Once upon a time, there was a happy and wealthy kingdom. An honest and just King ruled the land. But all was not well. The Queen was worried. She had noticed a change in the King's behavior. He had gone from happy and pleasant to irritable and angry. Sometimes would even seen him crying and moping around the castle. He would not eat the food on his plate and at night he would toss and turn in his bed. One morning, the King refused to get out of bed. The Queen immediately called for the royal physician. He examined the King from head to toe and decided that there was nothing physically wrong with him. The Queen did not believe it. She called for other doctors from far away kingdoms, but they too said the same thing. The Queen did not give up, for she knew there was something very wrong with the King. There was one doctor left. Dr. Monticarlo, from far away, saw the problem right away. "He has a severe case of Melancholia," he exclaimed. Everyone was shocked. The King's roy…

Songs of joy

In this age of crises, in these days of discomfort, everyone is craving for joy. We may try to find it in outer world. And when we fail to attain it; we grieve, we grumble. Our heart fills with gloom.
In such dryness and dreariness, this poem fills internal jollity. Whatever the situation is, however the happening does, sing a song of joy and mirth. To be happy is an inside job, never outside. When we realize it, we can develop positive understanding of life.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. Towards everyday, how is my attitude ? Do I look with abusive thoughts or blessing thoughts. Do I pursue a day with a negative or a positive in mind ?
Quality of my own perception defines experience and result. Amount of mental energy spent is same. But result differs. One makes us miserable while other makes us worthy. It is only due to my own outlook.

Here is a wonderful short poem. It teaches me; how to take up a day ? To open eyes with gratitude. To greet a day with reverence. To approach work with holiness. To meet difficulty with hope and faith. To act for ultimate purpose of life. To meet people with love and smile. To end a day with joy of a w…
