Where is happiness?

So where was the Happiness?
Where is happiness?

Where is happiness?

 

Recently we visited Vapi. The agenda for the evening was totally planned for but did not happen as we thought.. What went out of our plan was later covered up with something simple and it turned out best than ever!!

I was always thinking where was happiness all along? When did it just breached all of us?
What did we do to “feel” that we are happy?
We sat in a car.
We sat and exchanged a few words just like normal conversation.
We halted and ate.
We then mindlessly wandered and went wrong on our path and then continued!
We spotted a beach and all we did was stood in the water. Click some random pictures and run on the sand.
The head was paining and tiredness was seemingly becoming evident on our faces for a while..
We headed back again to eat and to be honest, the food was normal as we eat everyday.
We sat in the Puja and then in the evening we were back again!!
 
But yet at the end of the whole experience, we felt something had entered us. Something so subtle and so good. You can call it – “Happiness”
No idea when it entered and infected all of us. It made us feel “High”
It made us care for each other, and smile at each other more.
I reflected for sometime and it seems what we called as “Happiness” was inevitably “Change” in disguise. In people, in food, in place. Change in them.
 
When we joined in the journey, there were new people ( anyone whom you haven’t interacted with much is relatively new only! ) Even if a few of them, it still means new people around. New people means you are still unaware of who they are, how they behave, what they are. This unbiased and aware state of mind, helps us relieve of the first obstacle that we all face. Being judgmental about the ones around us. This blocks our happiness. We constantly and deliberately choose to be unaware of what they might not be and aware of what they could be! This blocks our happiness. With a new person, we look to interact with a fresh mind and are open to have a healthy connection with the other person. To learn, to know and to just let the company be! We might overlook their mistakes and will not judge or label their actions often! We will treat new people like fresh-baked bread. Often with care and compassion.
 
As we moved on, i figured out food too had a relatively nicer role to play. Digging deeper, it wasn’t food. It was eating the food by “being” together. That togetherness made us feel good! Eating with the same people you often don’t realize also you are with them. Newer people means, mind automatically hints it as a good thing and you feel good having the same food that you would normally eat or maybe more casually eat.
It’s not the food, it’s who accompanies you with the food that belonging-ness fills you tummy and makes you happy!
 
Living in the same old four walls and the lanes is definitely tiring. Our mind seeks constant change. Any denial of that, and we see our insides getting rebellious! We seek for change in the place, sometimes we want to get lost in the imaginary movie world, or the virtual canvas painted by the song that you just listened to! When you go in a new place, it automatically calls for newness in your mind. It signals your brain of new. With places are attached habits, practices, sometimes unwanted thoughts or the same set of thoughts. New place automatically triggers a possibility of newer experiences in the mind. And anything that is change, is just so what the mind seeks..
 
It is not in the routine, it is in the newness that the mind seeks comfort. It is the memories that bind us to behavior and our limited actions. When you travel you open yourself to newness, to let loose the mind where it finds comfort in. Travel challenges the memories to override their default settings and to gather newer memories to rebuild our hope to build a more positive life 🙂 Travel is a game changer. It completely does what we seek but never dare – Change! But company is what makes the dare easier and helps us to go through it with a more willing mind.
 
Travel and Let that happen 🙂
 
 
 
 

​No, not there!

No, not there! 

Don’t keep me in that altar of garlands.

Keep me here. 

Not an inch away from here..

No, not in the fancy marble decoration.

Nor in the fragrance of the flowers,

Of the incense sticks, or the sweet fruits.

Keep me here.

Not in the pocket, wall frame or desk.

Not in there.

Keep me here. 

The place where you keep your loved ones.

Forever shall i reside without a thought.

And you shall not worry, 

Whether the flowers are there or not.

The lamp lits with oil or not. 

Whether the food was cooked or not, 

Or the incense sticks were fragrant or not.

Let me be there.

Keep me there.

Forever and ever, in your Heart 🙂 
No one can take me away from there.
Dare anyone reach me there.

Carefully shall I reside.

Power you on and charge your faith at all times.

Never shall you think what’s the best way to reach me.

For my best place to reach is in your heart, 

Whether sun, moon or world fall apart.

Here shall I reside,

I choose to.

Let me be here.

Closest to you. Untouched by any.

Let me there.

To fill you with joy. To strengthen your resolves.

To make life a purpose to live for.

To smile, dance, cheer and work for.
O my child, my place belongs there.

Let me be here.

No, not there.

Let me here and here forever 🙂

Smile - It costs NOTHING!

Presenting some of the most random messages i sent across 🙂

Who is a victim?
One who is not living the knowledge is a victim.One who does not accept people and the situations,who is not living in the present moment, who is seeking intentions, is a football of people’s opinions,and who fails to recognize the that opposite values are complimentary and that things WILL change!
All those are victims.

Irshad : Khuda ke bande, jara aankh khol de, neki kar, aur paap chod de.Jara khud ko sambhal, jara pyar se sambhal,jarurat pade to jarur bula de!

Don’t feel bad to kneel down, to run or to stop or move ahead with pace,remember to put down your ego and move ahead in the race, because life is more, if its just you 🙂

I married peace, now she is with me forever,accompanied relatives were compassion love and kindness, God almighty blessed us.

There is never anything to lose. Either you win or learn how you could win! Kinare dhundne mai hi deri lagti hai, baki toh najare hi dil jeet lete hai.

Paristithine vaaat lavnya aadi paristithitun vaat kadnyat samanjsya ahe. Suryastachi vaat nako pahu re tu, kam ase kar ki, divsach milel toh thandicha visava!

Knowledge toh hamesha good hi rehta hai, haan tum main wo sunne ki shamta kam ho sakti hai.

Silence is a person’s loudest cry! You know someone is really hurt, when they start ignoring you! Holding the hurt, when its possible to let it go, is also foolishness.

Knowing a mistake as mistake is knowledge.
Considering it as behaviour of the person or labelling it with any other factor is ignorance.
If a mistake happens again and again, it becomes a risk.
Learning to prevent a risk is intelligence, trying to manage the risk is routine.
First manage and then look towards its prevention. When you know, truth is so vast and in depth, you learn to see, the depth of the situation and in turn you find every action was right and worth while.
Thats when you stop pointing fingers towards others and rest in peace.
Know that no one can promise you peace, other than you 🙂


In life, you have two options :
Either realize the priority yourself and do things or let people bulldoze your thoughts and build their own.
Stay with what is truthful at that time! If you are truthful to yourself, you will get less hurt.

If you spend too long, holding on to the one, who treats you like an option; you’ll miss, finding the ones, that treat you like a priority!
What to do then : Realise who are loving you and give them your love. Dont waste your time, for the people who dont even care for you. Hold back for a moment, find people, who love you and you know who really care for you and then you check out, if you are really caring or taking them for granted.

Someone asked God : Jab Naseeb mai pehle se sab likh diya gaya hai, to dua kyu kare?
God smiled and said : Ho sakta hai maine nasib likha ho ki: “AS YOU WISH” 🙂

Nothing can shake your love, except your own doubt.

Ever wondered,you never take an autograph from a Swami or a Rishi, or a person, who is of revered status.
An artist needs to be reached out, you need to go and make effort, to reach to the artist and then, you feel happy.
Swamis and Rishis autograph your life, with peace and happiness, before you reach out to them; their very presence radiates your need – the very thing you wanted!
Thats how,you never ever, felt the need to autograph them!

When Shakespeare said Whats in a name He actually means : Dont get stuck in the name. Names were kept for ease of identification and for our convenience. Some names had a very valid reason and some names were kept with no choice in front!
When you stop getting stuck in things, u realise & move ahead!


Rituals were always made, considering the need of the time.
It were made by the wise,to tame the mind, so that you have peace of mind and at the same time you follow the rules of the nature.
Ignorant is always unaware of why things are done and always spends more time in questioning things.
Some things are better some way,thats how it is!
To bring choicelessness, some rules had to be framed,so rituals were born.
When you know why things are done, you will find there is so much beauty, in what you do, then you can know, what you cannot do!

Reality is restricted by your own imagination..
Arz kiya hai:
Gumraah hokar – mat ghumna tum charo disha,
Jara mud ke dekh o rahi,
toh lage jannat har jagah!

Words are like the ingredients and Grammar is like the recipe!
When you put the ingredients in the right fashion by using the recipe, thats when u get a great taste!

Our behaviour is shaped through our speech! So culture your speech. Practise to let only good and righteous, flow through your speech. With time, you will stop making the bad a reality by not letting it to come through your speech! Many times instead of scolding and making d impact, u just vent out ur frustration! If you are cool, you will rule!

Life is just perfect at every moment, you just have to act in the moment and stop reacting a moment!
Each moment, someone pays for the mistakes he does,
Each moment is spent to repair the bad.
HE is working every moment and when you complain, is when you question – HIS work!
Stop questioning, Start Living!

When you start becoming a witness, thats when you stop becoming a victim and you see justice every moment!

Its when you make Art of Living a part of your living; that’s when you become a successful artist and paint your life with love,joy and enthusiasm!


STORY..
There was a certain person who wanted to know the meaning of life. So he approached a monk,who he heard, had attained the highest knowledge and was known to be knowing the meaning of life!

So one fine day, He approaches the monk and asks him the meaning of life!
The monk was drinking tea, so he looked at him and put one cup for the man and slowly started pouring the tea.
After sometime the cup started to overflow.
The person became confused and asked the monk to stop, but he did not.
He person thought it was foolish of him to ask the man,his answer.
With a confused mind,he asked : why are you still pouring?
To which the monk replied : You are currently, like this filled cup of tea, no matter how much knowledge i give, it wont sink in!
You have to first empty your cup ie unlearn things and then i can teach you new good things, that can help you find answers to your question.
Learn to be open minded and drop things when required to become better.

Jantet akrosh,sarkar jhopet madhosh; jantela padli chaprak, dili vajvun ek, pukarle ata yuddh, pahun jhale saare avak!

We are so conditioned to being right, nobody trained us that, we can be wrong.
Slowly slowly,develop that attitude, to know that you CAN be wrong.
That’s when, you learn to get less hurt from the fall and rise again.
When you learn to tame the mind, you explore its possibilities and capabilities.

Apyash boltech khare : beta Yash var ahe.Tu khali adhogati la ka? Yashachi payri khali navhe var ahe, karan up yash ahe 🙂

Just like a plant needs delicate attention.
It needs water, but at the right time, in right proportion, it needs fertilizers, to protect from insects and sun rays too.
But giving all that, still, you need to wait for it to blossom.
Like that, you can give your best,but love will blossom on its own.
It cannot be forced  or expected.
It needs everything and yet it requires time 🙂

Hiryachi tarif karun hira ajun chamkat nai 🙂 (Praising a diamond does not brighten its shine)
Hira swatachya kartutvavar chamakto! ( a diamond shines on its own ability)
Tyacha gun dharma ahe chamakne ani toh chamaknarach ( it his virtue and quality, his behaviour; is to shine and it will continue to shine )
Tasach mi hiryachi tarif karun tyachi chamak ujalat nai ajun; fakt, majhya manala sukun det ahe, bara ka ( like that by praising a diamond i am not increasing it brightness but providing my mind the much needed peace )
Hira samaj tu swatahas ( Consider yourself as one such diamond ) 🙂

Most of the time when a mistake happens, we so want to stick to make the person guilty, in the process we dont bring about the change we wanted to.
Know there is a difference 🙂
If at all you have to bring the change, make the person realise the depth of the situation as you experienced and guide the person how to bring about the change and inspire him for the same.
Making the person feel guilty just massages your ego and nothing else,the problem remains where it was.
Be intelligent and loving and go on the truthful side.
Train your mind to be peaceful and it will promise you success.

You have to learn, to let go of, dont even, hold on to knowledge.
Learn to let go of, that, you are someone in life, thats when you become someone worthwhile.
Its only when you lose yourself completely that you find your SELF.
Learning to let go, requires practise and patience and a strong faith 🙂

Tere se ladai karne ka maja hi kuch aur hai,
Pyar karna aadat nai par bhula toh kathor hai,
Bhul jau to mana lena, Pyar se nai to jhagda mol lena.

Sometimes we give so much respect to ourselves, that we fail to respect the moment.
Have respect, for the things you own, for the things you do.
Do things with skill and love.
Do it hundred percent with skill and have precision with love 🙂

Living the knowledge is easier, not living the knowledge is difficult.
Imagine,not accepting the situation, living in d past or seeing the intention.
Regular & continuous Meditation, Sadhana, Seva & Satsang; helps u live the knowledge.
So also, listening to the knowledge, refreshes it again.
Realizing knowledge is first step; living it, is next step.
Sometimes, mind forgets the knowledge. With love, then, train your mind to live in knowledge, till it becomes ur nature.
Remember a happy & clear state mind is a blessing & can do more things than a stressed mind.
Be happy! – an Order as well as blessing.

If you try, you MIGHT fail; but if you dont try, you WILL fail!
Life is risk, but worth not to miss.Be brave, be valued, follow right ideals & try it.

Enterpreneurs or business minds, always look at areas where things are not happening and they make it happen. They dont look at people, they observe people and make people look.


Follow your capability and passion follows.
Most people, try to be capable for their passion. Become capable and you will have passion.
