Any one of you, who has been into the situation when you were wearing a wrong-sized shoe or very tight jeans throughout the day? How does it feel when you get rid of that in the evening? It feels great. Now the deeper is your pain, the more is your relief. All happiness that your mind feels is directly proportional to how unhappy you are. So, if you want to be really happy, become totally unhappy. This is called the law of duality.
Stop looking outside. Look at yourself.
Your own motivations, your own processes, your own immediate life, the way you are living, all the conflicts and all the influences on your mind.
Look at that because that is what you are.
That is your life.
Can there be another way of living?
“Because I feel thrilled, so I do whatever I do.
Because I am already contended, so I do whatever I do”.
“Yes, I acquire knowledge. Yes, I read books. But I read books because I already feel contended.
Books can give me knowledge but the books cannot give me the base of my Being.
Books cannot give me something which is so important and already preset in me. That, books cannot provide.”
Can there be a possibility of living like this?
Won’t it be good fun?
If it doesn’t matter how many times you have done it,
then will doing it another time, increase the chances of fulfillment?
Your chances of fulfillment, through an activity, are zero;
It doesn’t matter how many times you do it,
you would still be standing at ‘zero’.
Standing still is not something to be practiced.
Standing still is not something that you will cultivate.
Standing still is your nature.
It is already there, but you move away from it when your mind has values that tell you to run all the time, to become super competitive.
Don’t wait for that grand and golden day,
when all your problems will be gone.
In the middle of the problems, be problem free.
That’s the way of living.
