Searching for Paradise
I’ve been searching for paradise.
Under a blue sky with warming sun
I’ve hunted for where it might be.
I’ve asked my many friends;
Travelled over green hills and mountain peaks,
And through many a grove of trees.
Taking my love by the hand
We’ve wandered through magnificent lands
In the hopes that we might see.
I’ve read a thousand books
And heard a million heart-warming tales
With which I thoroughly agree.
I’ve looked through microscopes and telescopes
At crystals and planets,
Magnificently huge and exceptionally twee;
I’ve studied multitudes of wondrous creatures,
And many a restless sea.
I’ve read gurus, poets and philosophers
But none of them agree
So I’ve come to accept that what will be, will be.
I think that finally,
I’ve come to understand
Is always close at hand.
Isn’t this life wonderful?? It has such a range of wonderful experience.
All we can do is dive in and sample it all, lap it up and try the full gamut.
Why limit yourself?
Launch yourself at everything!
Search for what is important.
Search for beauty.
Search for love. It’s all out there!
