Who is Happy ??

A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life.

But one day he saw a swan. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.” He expressed his thoughts to the swan. “Actually,” the swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.”

The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, “I lived a very happy life—until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”

The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock. “Dear peacock,” the crow said, “you are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.” The peacock replied, “I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere.”

That’s our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don’t value what has God given us. We always see other being more happier and prosperous than us. This all creates a feeling of discontentment  & leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness. We should try to be happy with what we have and are, be generous with both, and happiness will be our best friend forever. In this way, we will spread more happiness & love among the world.

So friends, Be Happy, Laugh a lot & Spread Kindness, Love, Compassion, Happiness & Joy. Stay Blessed.

  1. AWESOME!!!!
    This story illustrated THE very dilema that plagues us all.
    If we could connect with the divinity and love that we were created in the image of, we would no longer feel this type of sadness and shame.
    Thank you for this beautiful and illuminating post today.

    I’ve never heard this story before. The moral of it is true – do not judge others, we don’t know what their life is!

    This a beautiful piece of art. I have always believed that when I make more money I will be happier, but then I realized that if I’m not happy now, I won’t be happier then, because more money will only mean more bills.
