By pursuit of material wealth of all sorts and by all means, one may experience plentifully the avenues of ‘enjoyment.’ However, one thing is absolutely certain. You can never be happy until you renounce them all and eliminate your desires for such enjoyment. It is the burden of desires that makes us unhappy. Being attached to material things that one has and hankering after things one does not have is the surest way to make all life miserable.
We think the moment of gratification of our desire is the highest moment of our happiness. Then we conclude that gratification of the desire is the cause of happiness. This is not true. It is the removal of burden that desire was putting on the mind which makes us happy.
Once you indulge in gratification you will notice that ten new desires spring up and there is no end to this process. A gratified desire leads to hunger for desires. Unfulfilled desire leads to anger and more tension on the mind.
On Changing Bad Habits
You have to get out of those negative habits, negative behavior, all of it, once and for all. Now there is a breakthrough. Now use this momentum to really rise. You realize the wrong way to think, to act, to react, but seeing that is not enough. Don’t focus on it. You underline the negative aspects about yourself until you feel so miserable that you cannot function. You can look at yourself with all honesty and with humility make the changes.
A NEW AGE IS DAWNING. IT IS THE BEGINNING OF A WORLD FULL OF PEACE AND BLISS. But first all the obstructions should be removed.
