Peace and Happiness is Within

Once, a group of students met an old lady sitting at the pavement under a lamp post searching for something.
They soon discovered that she had lost a needle. So they offered to help.
They searched high and low for it but to no avail.
Then, one of the students asked. “Auntie, where did you drop the needle?” The old lady replied, “ I dropped it in my room but it is too dark to search there, the pavement is much brighter…”
In life, we pursue and search everywhere endlessly for peace and happiness. But we forget that all these come from within us, our own heart,not elsewhere outside of us.
Just because somewhere else looks brighter doesn’t mean we can find what we want by searching for it there.

Peace and happiness is all within.

Namaste
