ETERNAL HAPPINESS- THE AIM OF LIFE…
If we analyze each action at every stage of individuals the first conclusion will be that the ultimate motive behind each such action will be to attain “HAPPINESS”. All the efforts, works or struggles which individuals are making in this world are directed to secure “HAPPINESS”.
However the process of attaining “HAPPINESS” is different with different patterns of society and walks of life. Individuals are running after money, building, family happiness, position, and status, facilities of conveyance, higher education, decent clothing, and improved standards of living all with a common aim of attaining “HAPPINESS”.
It is a strange paradox that in every walk of life, happiness does not come alone but sorrow or misery follows as a close companion of happiness. This phenomenon keeps everybody in a strain of mental inequlibrium. Before one can follow the path leading to “HAPPINESS”, an individual must clearly know where “HAPPINESS” actually resides. Having known the real aim of life, viz.
“ATTAINMENT OF ETERNAL HAPPINESS”, a complimentary question arises as to where is the abode of this “HAPPINESS”, and how it can be achieved in practical life.
Correctly speaking, ‘MIND’ is the real instrument which by proper tuning drives to the goal of life along the right path in the right direction and leads to the source of “ ETERNAL HAPPINESS” – the aim of human life. It is the static position of the mind which imparts happiness.
The innermost part of the mind is ‘CONSCIENCE’. The real power of happiness flows this organ and the extent to which it can be derived depends upon the strength and cleanliness of the same. The ultimate aim is “ETERNAL HAPPINESS” for which purpose a regular war has to be waged, always gazing deeply in the mind’s mirror, the “CONSCIENCE”, which by practice illuminates better and better, as the angel of plus power develops and defeats the devil of minus power. With sincere efforts an individual becomes fearless and sees himself as he is and not as others look at him.
The true path to “ETERNAL HAPPINESS” therefore lies in-
1. Gaining true knowledge of the inner self, the seat of eternal bliss to locate the abode of “ETERNAL HAPPINESS”.
2. Practice a control of the sensual forces which cause distraction to the mind through their developed army of desires and thoughts.
3. Keeping an eye on the mind’s mirror the ‘CONSCIENCE’, and regulating the actions in a way that maximum plus power is transmitted to the ‘CONSCIENCE’.
4. Proper preservation of the body in good health, to enjoy the worldly pleasures and have a turbulent mind.
The real art of life lies in clearly picking up “HAPPINESS” and tread on a path which will lead to “ETERNAL HAPPINESS”, which is not mixed with sorrow and pain and will remain constant and never diminish. THIS IS THE REAL AIM OF LIFE.
