    • We are all seeking Happiness
      When all we want is Peace
      When we turn within, we will find it
      And our stress and worry will cease

      Peace is an inner thing
      Tt is a state of Mind
      If we can only be quiet
      This treasure we will find

      There is a Monkey within
      That jumps from thought to thought
      Our very own Mind is the thief
      That must in our quest be caught

      And so, we lose our Peace of Mind
      As we fillour Mind with junk
      Tfwe want to restore Peace within
      We must make the Monkey a Monk

      Until we stop this ‘Ever Yearning’
      And we stop our constant crave
      We will take stress and anxiety
      With us into our grave

      Peace is the foundation of Happiness
      Without Peace there can be no bliss
      If we want to be really Happy
      In our Mind we must plant this

      It starts with making the Mind still
      Stopping it froma burst of thoughts
      Tying the Mind with a virtual rope
      Tightly with many knots

      We live with worry, anxiety, and stress
      Right through our life
      The cause may be a failing business
      Ora nagging husband or wife

      But the pity is life will soon be gone
      And we will lose the treasure of Peace
      Only worries we will carry with us
      When this gift of life will cease

      In ignorance we search for worldly things
      Rubies, diamonds and gold
      Turmoil and worry will create wrinkles
      And soon we will be old

      We run through life like mad men
      Seeking this and that
      We get lost in a world of desires
      We become as blind as a bat

      As long as our Mind is not still
      We can never enjoy Peace
      The Monkey Mind jumps here and there
      From New York to Rome, and Greece

      But we don’t need to go anywhere
      Peace ifwe want to find
      All we have got to dois this
      Just still the Monkey Mind

      The Mind fills us with negative thoughts
      Of anger, revenge and hate
      It creates so much worry and stress
      That we exist in a joyless state

      First we must flip from NEP to PEP
      From negative to positive
      We must give a shampoo to the Mind
      Then with Bliss and Joy we will live

      We must discover the Monk within
      And live like a Peaceful Soul
      The challenge is to discover this
      It’s our life’s ultimate goal

      We must be Conscious, Aware, Awake
      To Realize the Truth of Life
      Then we will be free from all stress
      Worry, Anxiety and Strife

      We are not the body or the Mind
      We are the Divine Soul
      But the Monkey Mind and Ego together
      Makes the ME pay the toll

      We lose this gift of Peace of Mind
      The source of joy and bliss
      Because of the Monkey Mind within
      This treasure of life we miss

      There is away to find this Peace
      We must cut the Monkey’s tail
      The ‘Ever Yearning’ of life must stop
      Otherwise, we will fail

      We come with nothing, we go with nothing
      Life is just a show
      The Mind makes us just run and run
      And then it’s time to go

      Instead of being in the moment with Peace
      Living with bliss in the ‘now’
      We swing to the past and jump to the future
      Like a wandering cow

      We never learnt to sit still
      And go within to find
      The treasure of Peace that is inside
      Is stolen by our Mind

      And so, the secret of Peace is this
      We must make the Monkey a Monk
      Our Mind flooded with rotten thoughts
      Must be cleared of the junk

      The Mind seems intoxicated
      With all that it has drunk
      How will we ever find Peace
      Until we make it a Monk

      So, let us start anew journey
      To discover the treasure of Peace
      Then worry, stress, and anxiety
      In life will completely cease

      We will reach that state of bliss
      Of Peace and tranquillity
      If we stop the Monkey Mind
      Jumping from tree to tree

      Our ultimate goal is Eternal Peace
      Purification that leads to ilumination
      And then, Realization of the Truth
      That will lead to Divine Unification

      The treasure of Peace belongs to us
      But it is stolen by the Mind
      Until we control the Monkey within
      This treasure we will never find

      Peace of Mind will bloom in us
      When the Monkey becomes a Monk
      When we escape from worry and stress
      And anxiety in which we are sunk

      And so, if you want to be happy, my friend
      First, Peace you must find
      You cannot enjoy joy and bliss
      Until you still your Mind

      You can experience Peace of Mind
      But for this you must be a Monk
      If you want pure tranquillity
      Get rid of your Mind’s junk

      And when you cut the Monkey’s tail
      Stop it Yearning this and that
      You will discover the Monk within
      And Peace within your hat

      Peace is a gift to all of us
      If a Monk we learn to be
      But we live with stress and anxiety
      Because of the Mind Monkey

      If we resolve to live like a Monk
      Controlling the Monkey Mind
      Peace and tranquillity, bliss and joy
      Every moment we will find
