390 – Happiness

How do we define happiness? Is it not related to us? We are pleased that we have got a pay raise. We are so ecstatic that we have a great partner and friends. We are so content that we have a home, children and a pet. The list goes on.

Why is the happiness related only to us? In our circle what are we seeing. Do we ever say that we are so content that we pray every day? Do we ever feel that our Yogic Sadhana is the most joyous part of the day? Do we become ecstatic when we are in Dharana (deep concentration) or we are in the house of prayer? Why is it that we can only apply the term of felicity to material gratifications.

We say publicly that we are delighted with our life as it is. We have achieved all our goals and are the queens/kings of the hill. Has it ever occurred to us that all the pleasures which make us happy are ephemeral and what is real is to be true to oneself and love and venerate the universe.

Be on cloud nine through your self-observation and atmabhava. You will experience true happiness.

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi.


“Who in the world am I? Ah that’s the great puzzle.” Lewis Carrol.
