The greatest blessing that we have
Is the dawn of each new day
A chance to finish what we started
And made a mess of yesterday
As day comes out of night
A chance to get it right
A chance to start again
A chance to get it right

The people here
Full of love and comfortable in themselves
Not scared to let go
No fear round here

I met this man
In Utrecht Netherlands
He was a doctor of the body and the soul
He said to me:
Man, there's a book you have to read.
I feel your pain. It makes me cry
But these tears are yours - not mine.

You're focusing on all of your bad yesterdays
The worry lines are getting deeper every day
And deep inside you
No surprise - there's a crisis!
You might have been to blame
But you can't go on this way
Must I watch and pray?

While you torture yourself with what's behind ya
Torture yourself with what awaits ya
Draggin' that guilt and regret inside ya
Anxious of the goals that always evade ya

Your mind will find a way to be unkind to you somehow
But all we really have is happening to us right now

HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

And each baby..
A human sunrise
Each baby - a human sunrise..

Look around you
Feel your soul inside you
Look inside you
Feel the life course through you
The life that's giving In every thing that's living
The plants and the trees
The birds and the bees
And apes like you and me

HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

You're a slave to your mind
But you are not your mind
You are not your pain
Say it again
You are not your pain
Say it again
You are not your pain

Happiness aint at the end of the road
Happiness aint at the end of the road
Happiness IS the road
The road

HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

    General CommentBased on the book "The Power Of Now" by Eckhart Tolle (think I've spelled his name right). Hogarth is on record as saying that this experience is what is behind the track; dont keep on worrying about the past; its gone. The future hasnt happened yet. All you have is the here and now. And right here, right now this second, do you have a problem? If you do, fix it. If you dont, stop worrying. (your mind will find a way to be unkind to you somehow)

    the rest of it can be found in the book - "youre a slave to your mind, but you are not your mind, you are not your pain".

    And of course the pay off - happiness aint at the end of the road - the joy of life is the journey from beginning to end - its better to travel than arrive.
