Description

The nature of happiness is peace of mind attainable by using our resources of the body, mind and intellect. In addition we can derive strength and inspiration from spirituality. It is a question of making use of the relevant and available knowledge for ensuring happiness. The body is to be kept in the best possible condition so that it remains healthy facilitating right action. The mind has to be kept calm so that it is alert, available and its potential realized to the maximum. The intellect has to be utilized to the maximum and in the right direction. It is definitely possible to attain happiness. Before we make an attempt in this direction it is necessary to understand what we mean by happiness. If it is to mean waves of pleasant experiences then we must be prepared to face sorrow also. The latter is another wave of experience but which causes unhappiness. So it is wise to understand happiness as that feeling which gives us a steady calm mind which we call peace of mind. There is no agitation within. We remain calm even in the worst of provocations and hostile environment. A person who has cultivated a calm mind is capable of great and extraordinary achievement. The vast reservoir of energy stored in his mind is available for creative and productive purposes. This brings great social benefits. But one important thing we have to remember. It is human stupidity that is at the root of unhappiness. We must welcome noble thoughts from all sides, gather and use relevant knowledge which will help us to utilize our body, mind and intellect as vital resources. Together with spirituality as a source of strength we must strive hard to reach the goal of attaining a calm mind which is ultimate happiness. Remember, happiness is your birthright. You can discover it, attain it and own it forever. It is up to you to realize or lose. Make the wise choice and live happily.show more
