எது உண்மையான இன்பம்?
Some one asked me in the meeting, what is real happiness?
Happiness is one’s mental attitude and the capacity to hold it for one’s sake.
It is an internal capacity to be happy with whatever you have or have not.
If your mind says with some specific conditions for your happiness, then naturally your mind longs for it, and until it attains, the mind is in misery and distress. And know for certain, our mind always set for some superior goal to our present status and caliber and struggle for it. As soon as it attains that, our mind set for another wish/want/liking/aspiration/go... whatever the junk word you put it, and started to be in ‘unhappiness’. For example, you love to have a brand new reputed car/ prestigious companion/ top level position, right now to feed your Ego fulfilled, otherwise you will feel inferior and offended. But some how, if your desire is not fulfilled for quite some time, you feel bored in life or think this life is meaningless one AND STARTED DISLIKING YOURSELF.
Am I right?
First, ask your mind why it is longing always for the other side of shore, which seems to be beautiful than the present standpoint.
And ask your mind is there such difference really exists existentially or is it the creation of our own mind. Because a rose is a rose, and a lotus is a lotus and both are wonderful in natures. You cannot deny one and accept other. If our dislikes come in the middle and we hate one flower, say lotus, it is the flaw of our mind and never exists in the nature.
Because, we know very well THERE ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND VARIETY OF LIKINGS IN SELECTING A THING/ PHILOSPHY/ PLACES & PEOPLE.
So always question your mind, why it is unhappy. And even if you get that stuff/ person would you be happy for eternity? And ask your wisdom was there any person contended as such in his/her life in getting those stuffs/ people ever?
UNHAPPINES and DISLIKING ONE’S SELF ARE ALL ARISING FROM THE UNAWARENESS OF KNOWING OUR MIND AND ITS VAGUE FUNCTIONS. COMPARE NOT WITH OTHERS AND STRUGGLE WITH YOURSELF.
Be natural, live natural, think natural and talk natural.
BECAUSE, YOU ARE THE PART OF THE WHOLE NATURE.
