Answer by Me
I cannot be otherwise.
Stone is happy with longevity.
Plant is happy with plenty of light, air, water.
Bird is happy with making home anywhere on earth.
I must be surely happier for being a human being. Besides enjoying the happiness of stone, plant, bird… I can move through the immensity of the known and unknown worlds which exist from time immemorial to all eternity.
Some people are unhappy for not knowing the blessing of sufferings: paddy suffers cutting to give new planting season; mother suffers laboring to give new life to next generation; Prophet suffers persecution to prove Invincible Power of God….
God creates all creatures to happily enjoy His love in His omniscient way.
New Addition For This Post
Unless one accepts dire vicissitudes he will not attain. To me prison is freedom; troubles rest me; incarceration is an open court; death is life and to be despised is honor. Therefore, I was happy all that time in prison. When one is released from the prison of self, that is indeed freedom, for self is the greater prison.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 21)
All creatures happy
In the boundless love of God
By His Divine ways
