DAY 3 QUOTE :

Every one in the world is seeking happiness but it seems to be ever elusive. Are we looking for it in the wrong places and directions? OR Is it that we are confusing happiness with pleasure?

In this day and age when hype and hypocrisy are almost the norm, most often we look for instant gratification. We assume that it will make us happy. We look for constant external stimulation to keep us in perpetual state of happiness and feel overjoyed by the external gratification we receive.  BUT this feeling is short-lived,temporary. We get engulfed and entangled in the ever expanding web of negative pride, false flattery, become trapped in our false identities and exhaust ourselves in the rat race.

And that leads us to the burning question : what causes this?

Most often the problem is the subliminal messages-the mainstream media, the wider culture, society and the marketers beam into our psyche. We become victims of borrowed perceptions. We start believing the fake claims that are made although they are false, contrived and manipulated.  

We live in an overwhelmed world with more than we can handle. We soon become aware of the imperfections of the material world we inhabit.

Let us stop for a few moments, to consider and reflect ! To cast aside illusions and get to the heart of reality. True happiness lies in the satisfaction when we are connected to our inner core, when we are in total sync with our true nature; we have to look within us and ponder deeply. External gratification is only an” Escape Mechanism” from the dissatisfaction and confusion in the deeper recesses of our mind, and that is no match for true happiness.

Let us find some middle ground which is not too idealistic for the real world and search for our corner of eternal, long lasting happiness. I am sure it lies somewhere within each one of us. To recount my own experience, i have had short glimpses of this nectar, at times, during meditations…when time almost stands still, it is a blissful state and i am consciously aware of that moment. I long to revisit that experience again and again…it is so intense. May be this is the stuff which qualifies as true happiness. I am still working my way towards it !

 

What do you think ?  What have your experiences been ? I’m  really interested in knowing, please share !

DAY TWO QUOTE :

IMG_20160202_171728

IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT, YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT.

Several great achievers have said that your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words,  your words become your actions, actions become habits, habits become your values and your values ultimately become your destiny.

 Thoughts have lot of power. Many universal laws are based on this premise, like the law of attraction and law of manifestation. When we worry, we use our immense power of thoughts and imagination negatively. WE imagine the worst, and as we imagine it, we invite it to us. When we are positive and excited about something, we imagine the best, we invite the good and the best into our life.

DAY 1 QUOTE :

This quote means that one who has no values to stand for can fall for anything. This is so true. I have always believed in this. i have come across several instances in my life where the correctness of this saying was proved beyond doubt.

Our integrity is the most important aspect of our life. It is almost like a foundation,upon which the structure of our life is built. If we can stand true to our values, we can be true to our inner selves. We should stand strong for what we believe in. This helps in building strength of character.
