In young age every kid feel so happy when they could communicate what they felt. After few years, being with friends made them more happier. Again being lovable by others gave them happiness. Later again it moved up that being respectable and making good money gave them happiness. Once if you started acquiring good amount of money or more than you need for rest of your life, making some more money will not give any kind of feeling. It is one and same. Again your area of happiness, will start move backward. This intangible element frequently moving its center of gravity from one area to another area.
We are living in such a tough time. Corruption, irresponsibility, injustice and violence in the name of religion became daily events. All these problems are sprouting from a seed called lust over money and power. These weeds need to be eradicated.
Everyone has to think from their heart. Exactly what is needed to live happy. Now vegetable, gasoline and alcohol, everything is at the same price. What do you choose? necessity or comfort or luxury? Who caused this imbalance? please look at mirror. Keep on buying lands, keep on buying houses, not leaving agricultural lands also. Finally end up in paying huge price for vegetables and food grains. Politicians have manifested pseudo interest over religion and people in their region. Certainly we can not change their attitude but we can change them. No one need to bend over to their religious preaching and violent sentiments. Just for praising your mother, no one need to abuse others mother. We need to be true to our heart.
Just imagine that everyone is following some unwritten rule that everyone should not have more than one vehicle and one house. By any way, agricultural land should not be touched. Word "inflation" in the economic field will be completely removed. To society what you give, that only you will get, this is not only applicable to law of action in physics.
Everyone must try to develop the habit of detached attachment. These things we can not expect from our current politicians, what all they know is attachment over their big families and attaching others property. Adi Shankara and Kamaraj, lead the life of detached attachment. Though they are living like saints, at the same time as a son they never forget to do their duty for their mother. This is the stage, you are close to the god.
Long back, got a chance to go through some slide show, which shows some important dialog between Dalai Lama and theologist Leonardo Boff from Brazil. I wish to share few of his touching statement, for sure it will be etched in your mind for long time.
Take care of your Thoughts because they become Words.
Take care of your Words because they will become Actions.
Take care of your Actions because they will become Habits.
Take care of your Habits because they will form your Character.
Take care of your Character because it will form your Destiny,
and your Destiny will be your Life
Finally Dalai Lama concluded with the statement
“There is no religion higher than the Truth.” what a amazing statements! this is a divine truth.
Hell or heaven, it is in the same planet where we are living. Being truthful not only give happiness, you will become a role model to the society. Better society will make better world. If you are living happy in the place where you are, you are at Heaven.
