Dr. Debasish Mridha


Purpose


Even when I was a very young man
I was looking for the purpose of life
I was looking for happiness all over
the world,
In fame and in glamor,
In wealth and in splendor,
not knowing how foolish it was.

Happiness is not out there
Happiness is not in wealth or
splendor.
Happiness is inside me,
In my mind,
In my thoughts,
It is in my perception of the world.

We are the expression of our
thoughts, dreams and desires.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
