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
