Essence to explore, realizing we don’t live in an
Utopian world — doesn’t mean we can’t be happy in
Dominating reality, living now, living in the flow
Amazing wonders around, with or without purpose
Inside heart, outside actions, predictions, guided by
Musical, poetic, philosophical beats, or some inner voices
Observing virtues around, pearls of wisdom to seize for
Negating the negatives, finding our
Indwelling mindfulness, practicing tranquil freedom of choice in
Astounding changes in life, mending eudaimonia
Healing in the process,
Answers to find our essence
Perhaps, in composed views, guided holiness, soul searching tunes.
Predicting our soothing future to look like,
It’s the present, and its presence
Nourishing humanity, escalating our joyous emotions onwards for
Elegant excitements, waving the
Sentimental expedition towards the
Sound of our mind’s resting silence, to flourish in happiness
Mending the true spirit that matters to us, guiding principles
On the route, perceiving wellbeing, inner wisdom which
Merges a just and well-living, not causing unjust to others,
Envision your spirit, live, let it flow
To escort your
Soul, to your eudaimonia, the happiness and the moments to live!
