897 – Examine your heart

There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart. – Chandogya Upanishad

Happiness = None of desires fulfilled – None of desires harbored.

This is the Bhagwat Gita’s formula of happiness. If one follows this precept, then one can increase one’s happiness by either fulfilling one’s desires or reducing the desires harbored.

It is all in the heart, which is pure. It is uninfluenced by the mind. However, one has feeling and emotions which are in constant play in the mind and then the innocent heart stands in the line of fire. Listen to your heart, be neutral and compassionate. Only through sadhana is it possible and Yoga is our teacher.
