HOW TO KEEP THE MIND HAPPY AT ALL TIMES?
Let us all think for a minute. During the last 24 hours, for how many minutes were we happy? If anyone thinks like this, they will recollect incidents lasting only a few minutes. For some people, no such incident would have happened for the past several years. The time during which our mind is happy is the human power. When our mind is happy, all the body parts will function properly and they will work with full potential. They will also cure all the diseases and we can remain healthy.
If you call a hundred persons and ask them, “If your mind is to be happy, what should happen?” then many people will give replies such as, “I should become the Chief Minister. Only then I will be happy.” “I should get first rank in the exam. Then only I will be happy.” “We should buy a very big bungalow.” “I should marry my lover.” “My husband should start growing hair on his head” and so on.
If you just think, none of the things that these people say will happen in the immediate future. They may take even several years. Some of these wishes may even go unfulfilled. When it is so, are these people going to remain sad till those wishes are fulfilled? Thus, we are just postponing our happiness in view of some incidents or matters which may happen someday in the future.
Please change your view that happiness will be obtained only if your goals, objectives and wishes are fulfilled. There is no difference between the happiness one gets by assuming charge as Chief Minister after waiting for 50 years and the happiness the same person gets by eating the sweet he likes.
The same happiness that we get when we enter the newly built house that we constructed by working hard and by saving money like a sparrow is obtained when we play with a child. There is no difference between the two. Our mind will not analyze and see from where it gets the happiness. It will be happy if it just gets the happiness by any means. If we understand this we can be happy for all the 24 hours.
Some children will keep on listening to the same song again and again. The parents who see this will get bored. But that child will not get bored. This is because children always do a thing only if their mind likes it. But once we grow up, we are doing only such things which are not liked by our mind. So, children are always cheerful because they do only such things which are liked by their mind. So, they sleep immediately when they go to bed and they are always peaceful.
So, happiness can come when we listen to our favourite song, when we see a movie that we like, when we fondle a child, when lovers see each other, when we see natural scenery, when we eat our favourite food, etc. So, happiness is always near us all times in our life. Without understanding this, we are always searching for happiness elsewhere.
Once the mind gets happiness, it will not analyze how and from where that happiness came. So, it is enough if we get happiness somehow from somewhere. We need not wait for happiness only from the accomplishment of big wishes and objectives. When you are getting happiness easily from somewhere at this moment, please do not come out of that happy feeling.
For example, our mind is happy when we are listening to our favourite song. At that time, our cell phone rings. What do we do then? We immediately stop the happy thing and start speaking over the cell phone. The words coming from the cell phone may or may not give us happiness. But, we come out of our happy state and do some other work. Always we give importance to our work, facilities, money and financial gain. But we do not give importance to happiness. That is why we do not have happiness with us.
So, if you get some other work when you are listening to your favourite song or when you are playing with a child, please try to postpone that work. The amount of time in a day during which we are happy is our wonderful power. So, when you know that you are in a happy state, think twice before coming out of it. Try to increase the duration of your happy state.
If someone calls me on cell phone when I am listening to my favourite song, I will not respond to that call. I will take the cell phone only after that song is over and I quietly enjoy that song for some more minutes. Thus, we should never attempt to quickly come out of the thing which gives happiness to our mind. Even if some material benefits, some monetary benefits are reduced for this, we should not mind it. This is because no one can measure the value of happiness in terms of money or material value. Health is the property owned by our body. Happiness is the property owned by our mind.
I have seen some films more than 100 times. But still I am ready to see the film again once more. This is because, I feel happy when I see that film. But when I see some films, my mind does not like them. So, I do not see them at all. Similarly, I have listened to some songs in my cell phone hundreds of times. It is because, I like them so much. When I listen to them I feel happy. I will not analyze why I am happy when I listen to those songs. Please do not analyze good things. If you analyze them, then you cannot enjoy them. Then your mind will not be happy.
So, please do the things liked by your mind again and again. But, once we start doing the things liked by our mind, our mind will desire to do all the things. We cannot do all the things liked by our mind. So, when you do the things liked by your mind, please remember only one point. When you do things liked by your mind, it should not cause any harm to any other person’s body or mind. If you keep this in mind and are happy, our body will be healthy and our mind will be peaceful.
When you are alone in a closed room, if you think that being nude gives you happiness, then you can definitely be so. There is nothing wrong in this. But, if you think that walking nude in the middle of the road gives you happiness, you should not do it. This is because it will affect other people.
So, please think for a minute. There are many things which you like to do which can be done by you without spending any money and When thousands of such things are available which make us happy and which we can do for free from wherever we are, we keep on searching for happiness everywhere for a long time.
We are shortly going to bring out a book on the connection between mind, brain, deep inner thoughts recorded in the sub-conscious mind, life, soul and aura and how to increase the power of these. By reading it, you can understand many things about this matter.without harming others. But many people do not enjoy such things.
