Can one be ever truly happy?

Contributed Article: Can one be ever truly happy?

Have you ever wondered whether one can be truly happy? Happiness and sorrow are states of emotion that is experienced by all of us. Both of them are like two sides of a coin. And both of them come in cycles one after the other. We feel excited, estatic, etc. when we are happy and conversely we feel sad, dejected, etc when we feel sorrow. 

Sorrow hurts more as it negatively plays with our ego, senses and seems to last longer than happiness. Sometimes sorrowful states drives one to such extreme despair that one feels like committing suicide to get out of that pain. It is during hard and sorrowful times that a person's self confidence is at its lowest and one starts to depend on external energies and sources to survive. In all humility one approaches anyone who can help. In such a time, the ever merciful loving and compassionate Sadguru, comes running to the rescue. He takes care of his children and makes them tide over tough times. Then comes the cycle of happiness and joy as one slowly rises and starts taking control of their lives. 

That little voice sitting inside starts raising its ugly head and one gets into the grip of ego, the other senses and maya that plays all around us. Desire after desire start flowing in as waves in an ocean never ending and ever playing with our minds. Despite having enough for a decent living, one falls again into the trap of sorrowful state.

It is said that we all have to suffer the consequences of our Karma. Karma is mostly misunderstood as a form of physical action only. Karma is not limited to physical action, it is also generated because of our mental actions. In fact every thought that originates in the mind is causing Karma. Be it positive or negative. Surrendering one to the feet of the Sadguru by constantly and consistently keeping Sadguru in our thoughts is the only means of negating Karma. That continuous process leads one to differentiate and through differentiation arises a state of mind that recognizes that happiness and sorrow are caused by inside forces and not from outside influences. Control of the inside forces by complete surrender to the Sadguru is the key to true happiness.

From The Secret Daily Teachings

Most people don't realize how much passion they put into what they don't want. When you speak to a friend and you tell them all about an "awful" situation, you are putting passion into what you don't want. When you react to an event negatively, with the response that it is "terrible," you are putting passion into what you don't want.

You are a beautiful passionate being, so make sure you direct your passion wisely.

May the joy be with you,

When your are in the final days of your life, what will you want?

Most often in our busy schedule, we take our loved ones for granted. We forget to show them how much we care, love and appreciate their presence in our lives. We fail to express our true feelings in words and deeds. We fail to make them feel special or wanted. Its strange that we cry for our loved ones when they are gone- we miss them when they are no more with us but when they are alive and very much  a part of our lives,- our priorities are often in the favor of all the material things that money can buy but what is priceless- we often fail to recognize, appreciate and acknowledge at the right time..

May Baba  bless us all and give us the wisdom to appreciate the presence of our loved ones in our life. May Sai make us realize that relationships are a bond of lifetime and we all need them more than anything else at some point of our lives. May Our Sadguru Sainath shower his kind grace on us so that we can understand that All the money in the world will not be able to buy that one precious moment with our loved ones when we need them the most..

Peace of Mind - Buddha's Teachings

Once Buddha was going from one town to another town with a few of his followers. While they were travelling, they happened to pass by a lake.
Buddha told one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake there.”
The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes in the water and, right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha?” So he came back and told Buddha, “The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink.”
After about half an hour, Buddha again asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obeyed. This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be had.
So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.
Buddha looked at the water, and then looked up at the disciple and said, “See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be… and the mud settled down on its own.” Your mind is also like that. When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. 
You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.
“Having peace of mind is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process. When there is peace inside you, that peace permeates to the outside.”
