We all are running behind happiness and although nobody knows the right definition of this term, everybody is running after their own version of this word. For some, this means money, more and more of it. For some, it’s their dreams, for some its good food, good fun-filled life.
But almost all of us are getting this term wrong. As Gurmeet Ram Rahim often states,
What you are looking for is “pleasures” not happiness. Cause all these will give you momentary “happiness” which are in fact, pleasures. Although momentary doesn’t mean for a moment, it could be a day a week, a month, but the point being, it is not long lasting. This lasts only for as long as you don’t cling to another version of happiness, like a job, marriage, kids etc. So that is why the saying, happiness is a state of mind holds true. We all may have our list of things to do, or achieve and still be happy.
Our happiness is not dependent
It could be simple things, like driving, or household chores or job-related chores. Just put your heart and mind into it, as if time has stopped. And time will stop for you giving you the moment of your life. And another way to get used to this form of life is helping others as much as you can. This is another of Baba Ram Rahim’s wonderful tips to all, to serve the society as much as you can, and you will get long lasting happiness from these acts of kindness. In fact, his followers are like living in another blissful planet, their faces are as fresh as fresh lilies, after a hard day of work, or even after cleaning the streets filled with filth and litter.
Serving God’s children is, after all, the best way to please God himself. Isn’t it as the chief of Dera Sacha Sauda, Baba Ram Rahim points out in his Satsangs that if you help a child, their parents, naturally are happy with you? Now helping God’s children, won’t that make God himself happy with you? He will for sure, and you’ve got the World on your side, with the creator by your side.
So go ahead, adopt meditation, pranayama and helping others as the mantra for long-lasting happiness.
