"Joy is prayer-Joy is strength-Joy is love-Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls"
Mother Teresa once said
The objective of life is to find peace and happiness. While elders look for guidance from spiritual leaders ,some try to find happiness in wealth and material gains. But children find happiness within themselves and in their actions.
Quiet strangely the elders get into competition that brews discontent and takes away peace of mind. They indulge in petty jealousies and longing for material goods that only breeds sorrow. But children have simple wants and positive attitude towards the life that leads to natural contentment and joy within themselves.
Joy can be described as a state of mind. In this state a person is content with all that he has got with him. He has healthy and sound mind and he believes in the service of mankind. As SARAH BAN BREATHNACH said "Learning to live in the present moment is part of the path of joy"
Childhood is a golden period in the life of every human being. In this period child is full of energy, excitement and is oblivious of the impending responsibilities of earring and meeting other social obligations. They can do things of their liking as they are innocent and pure. They do friendship with anybody without any distinction.
As children are above jealousies,hatred, intolerance and laziness they can therefore lay a claim to true happiness. So children have unshaken faith in the powers of the almighty.They lead a simple,pious and tension free life away from the harsh realities of mundane life ahead of the.
In the end I want to say that" Joy is not in things it is in us".
