There is really nothing to be done to be happy or joyous. If
u stop creating misery, you are naturally happy or joyous. Being joyous is not
something u do, it is your natural state of being. But u create misery through
your thoughts, emotions and other aspects of u being out of control.
r many ways to see how one can come out of the present patterns of creating
suffering. Suppose today u r not peaceful. The first thing u might do, could be
a quarrel with your spouse, or your mother or father... the next thing may be your
yelling at your neighbor. Then u will realize it’s time to go to the doctor, he
will give u a pill. This pill is made up of chemicals.
You put these chemicals into your body, your
body and mind become peaceful. So one way of understanding this is, what u call
as peace has a certain kind of chemical background to it.
what u call misery, fear, anxiety, everything has a certain chemical basis. as
there is a science for external wellbeing,
there is a whole science as to how to create ur inner chemistry. yoga has many
methods through which u can create the right kind of chemistry where being
peaceful and joyous comes naturally to u.
beings have been creating suffering, misery, fear and insecurities unconsciously.
y r we creating them and how to leave them behind ? We do not have to leave our
fears and insecurities because they do not exist. The fundamental reason y fear
has arisen in u is coz u r a little human being and u do not know the beginning
or the end of this vast creation.
long as u r identified with the physical body, as long as ur experience of life
is limited to ur physical and mental faculties, fear and insecurity r
inevitable. Only when a person begins experiencing life beyond his limitations,
only then he can be truly free of any sense of insecurity or fear.
