A Recipe For A Satisfied And A Happy Life

Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)

You are the reflections of my face and my soul in the mirrors.
You are the people who always look for the perfection in the mirrors.
You've played every instrument in the life but you are not satisfied.
You've thought education,job,money,villa and daily loves are enough.
I don't know you,but I've realized that those are not enough.
We need love,freedom,balancing,using mind and sharing for satisfaction
Love is a strong wish that carries a bit selfishness to own everything
WhenYouFall inLoveWith a thing,youThink you're the owner of that thing
Freedom means endless behaviour or action for a thing or everything
If you use freedom without balancing and thinking,
You can certainly meet with disappointment,chaos or destruction.
They prepare your ending,and also destroy human's social function.
But human needs love,kindness and trust for every relation or reaction.
You can add an international job and a language for a global freedom.
Sharing opens the hidden heavens,richness,secret doors even your mind.
Sharing is immortality and increase of everything,even the time.
If you realize this,nobody can hurt you even this short life-time.
To combine these peculiarities with each other you need UsingYourMind.
In fact,you are the real manager of your body,your life and your mind.
Reviw your life,find yourself and a new managing style in your mind.
