You have everything in your life, and you are not happy. Something is troubling you. Reasons are limitless for not being happy. Every minute; every second a new reason for not being happy takes birth; and you are not happy. What to do? Somehow you have to be happy. but you do not how.
The more you try to become happy; the more sad you become. happiness comes with sadness. And, the life keeps moving; you do not move.
You are stuck at the same place finding the reason for becoming happy. You should find the way of becoming happy; now. Otherwise, life will move ahead; it is already, continuously moving.
What to do; just move with the life. Do not stay at the same place and either keep brooding; or keep yourself occupied in finding the way of becoming happy.
You must have seen; observed, that sometimes, in a very affluent family; a very famous person, who has got everything at his disposal, commits suicide? Many celebrities; film personality, sports star; you keep listing the news that out of depression they have committed suicide.
Now this depression, stresses in life becomes the main reason to commit suicide. You keep wondering; this person had everything in his/her life; they have achieved everything in their life; how come they commit suicide.
If you look at yourself, you will find; that you are the same; you are not less. The same tendency of not becoming happy is prevailing everywhere. You are not happy. You are not satisfied.
Mundane stress, has snatched peace with your life; it seems so. I keep saying this, that; your answer; your solution, is lying within you.
You are, the question you are the answer. Just you have to look within. It costs you nothing. You have to just look within; and the next moment, you are happy. Your sorrow is gone. Your stress is gone. What a magic. It is miraculous.
And now, your mind starts playing its game; your mind tells you not to believe this; just looking within; it is so stupid, disbelieving. Your mind keeps telling you that looking within is stupid; it is a waste of time. And lured by your mind's instruction you start searching the ways of becoming happy.
There are many books written on this subject; 'How to become happy and successful in your life?' and sometimes; they are considered best seller books.
Those author claims that their book have changed many lives. And you find it more scientific. Happiness, Satisfaction, is there in some books; some of them are considered religious.
Now, not following your religion; is blasphemy; this what you have been taught. And, with your conditioned mind; you start searching peace; happiness in books. The result is zero. Aftermath; you commit suicide. And, the chapter of your life is closed.
The problem with you is; you are running after dead things. Dead things; gives you pleasure. Life; has no meaning to you. Wind is blowing you are not concerned. Wind is touching you; you are busy thinking of someone's insult. You are busy thinking; how to take revenge?
Your mind keeps telling you; 'unless you take revenge I am not happy'. And, mind has to be happy. your mind has to be satisfied. It is natural; you will be stressed. Now you take refuse in your religion; your God. There are many Gods; every religion has a God. And you take refuse in your God; the unknown.
You start finding peace, happiness in books. Your God is smiling at your stupidity; sitting inside you. God is very kind; very generous. God keeps shouting; yelling at you, indicating; "I am here inside you; come to me".
And you are not listening to God's calling. Because you are busy searching God; in books; in religious places. Stress, has to come. Unhappiness, has to come. Difficulties, has to come. Sorrow has to come. To get rid of these stresses; you have to accept life first.
You have to accept life as it is. Do not interfere; the way life is coming to you, accept it. And while doing so, while accepting life as it is; stay awakened, stay alert. and then look within. You do not have to do anything extra for this; simply, just look within.
This power of looking within comes through Meditation. Meditation techniques, how to practice meditation, differs. Practice all techniques of meditation; whatever comes your way, and choose one; the best suited to you; and start practicing meditation.
Meditation is awareness; how to look within? And, in spite of all your stresses, in spite being amid your adversity; the moment you look within; you are happy. Because, the moment you look within, you start a conversation with you; that is self-talk.
And when you are talking to you; you are talking to the Almighty. No words are needed here; only silence is here. And, amid deep conversation with you, you will get the answer of being happy; within you...
