Where to find happiness

The search for happiness, says the Dalai Lama, is our purpose in life. A good place to look, according to The Verve, is in the mind.

Lucky Man by The VerveHappiness, more or less
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Oh, my, my

Happiness, coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know just where I am

But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn
All the love I have is in my mind?

Well, I’m a lucky man
With fire in my hands

Happiness, something in my own place
I’m stood here naked
Smiling, I feel no disgrace
With who I am

Happiness, coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know just who I am

The Verve. Lucky Man, written by Richard Ashcroft from Urban Hymns

 

“I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear, whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness.”
