Happiness is a State of Being

Below is a Poem I wrote last night, as I couldn’t sleep.. It reflected my day as  looked out into my Garden as I looked at the wonderful rainbow colours of flowers. They filled my heart as I took in a deep breathe . I woke up with these Words repeating over and over in my mind, and Just had to reach for my journal to write them down.

The words I heard were this one sentence. ” HAPPINESS IS A STATE OF BEING ” and so the Poem was Born.. 

Happiness is a state of being

Look around at what I’m seeing

Shapes and colours of every hue

Natures Garden just for you

garland[3]

Happiness is a state of mind

You needn’t look far in you want to find

A scent of perfume rare and grand

Just simply breathe in where you stand

garland[5]

Happiness is within every flower

Growing perfect hour by hour

Just being the best they can be

That’s Natures Gift for you and me

garland[7]

Happiness is the buzz of Bee

For without its work we wouldn’t see

Nature’s treasures multiply

We need its Buzz within our sky

garland[9]

Happiness lay in the drops of rain

To quench the land and life sustain

Happiness lay in the rays of the Sun

For without its warmth no life would be spun

garland[11]

Happiness cannot be bought or sold

Its right here for ALL to behold

Happiness is searched for high and low

And yet it’s around you watch it grow

garland[13]

Happiness is a state of BEING

When will you be thankful for all you’re seeing?

Earth is our Garden of Eden our paradise home

WAKE UP People to your HAPPINESS Zone.

    Happiness is a state of consciousness
    it moves within and flows from us
    your happiness is my happiness.

      I think Jana flowers are here as Very special gifts. they give us so much pleasure in their beauty and colour and perfume.. And they give us their Ultimate Love.. for they Give their life, as we pick them to put into our vases, and we give them at our birth our birthdays anniversaries, weddings, to cheer some one who is sick, and we give them at our final farewells in remembrance.. Yes the Gift of Natures flowers Soothes Many a soul and cheers many a heart.. And Thank you Jana for returning and leaving your own footprint with a beautiful flower also.. 🙂 Sue xxx

It is all around us if we just open our eyes and pay attention. I think more and more are doing this now. It is part of the shift taking place. The world is quickly changing now and it is palpable to many. It shall truly be heaven on earth when everyone awakens and feels gratitude for everything. It is coming!!!! Blessings….VK

I’m sat here in the garden under the Sun Umbrella with feet up and Laptop on my knee enjoying both worlds.. Blessings to you my friend ~DW xx

    Yes, Happiness is a state of being, Sue. It’s not a destination, we don’t have to do anything to get there, it’s where we are. We only need to realise it, and be grateful for everything around us that shows us it! So, thank you, Sue, for reminding me once again!
    And fabulous photos as well – a great source of happiness indeed!

I only have to walk into a hospital to know how blessed I am.. and I am doubly blessed to have such beauty surrounding me.. In Natures walks and birdsong, they are far more precious than any amount of $ or £’s Diamonds or Pearls.. Happy you enjoyed the photo slide show 🙂

    Another great work from a spirit with insight.
    It is saddening to hear that most don’t believe that such are miracles.
    And that they occur like clockwork. And so much that we do is to such a consistent
    heart beat.
    Great work She that walks among dreams:-)!!!

    This verse is pure happiness Dreamwalker. Happiness completes us. It makes us whole. What wonderful words you speak that restore and fill the heart. Would you mind if I leave you with a quote from the Dalai Lama? “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…” with love my friend, Eddie

    and I for one am enjoying your poem for
    the very first time, so ty for the re-post. During
    the summer months most of us long to get out
    into the sunshine and enjoy the weather and
    soak up some rays. Fabulous post.
