Simplicity is my lifelong-friend.
My simplicity – friend has cut down my desire – tree.
Sincerity is my lifelong friend.
My sincerity – friend has snapped my guilt – conscience – chain.
Simplicity shortens the road
That leads to God – discovery.
Do you want to be happy?
Then make your life as soulfully simple
As simply breathing
Sincerity is the fertile ground in our heart.
Our sincerity is God’s matchless Smile
Our sincerity is God’s peerless Pride.
Be sincere in your thoughts,
Be pure in your feelings.
You will not have to run after happiness.
Happiness will run after you.
