Daily Dose for the Soul

Like a moth rushes into the fire without caring about the outcome, each one of us is attracted towards light. This attraction is innate. It propels us to constantly act towards a greater sense of fulfilment. Regardless of how you want it and whether you like it or not, the truth is you can’t run away from the two most fundamental elements of human life. The pursuit of happiness and the quest for freedom. From a sinner to a saint, a beggar to a billionaire, each one of us is working towards acquisition of happiness and freedom. And why not, for to be happy and free is immensely empowering.

Everything we do and most things we think are ultimately geared towards feeling happier and freer. Every act of ours is aimed at avoidance of suffering. And yet, the harder we work towards our fulfilment, the more shackled we feel. The Vedic view is that our suffering results from a lack of harmony in our being. When what we want from life or others is not singed with our actions, speech and thoughts, we feel exceedingly restless and dissatisfied.

      Yes we all want to be happy indeed. Everything we do while we are in this life or even beyond this life who knows is to keep us satisfied and happy. But then it makes me question what happiness is. Isn’t it subjective? Can humans ever reach a state where they are completely happy?

        Of course it is subjective, a concept of the mind and a manifestation of the peace within. That is great question to be completely happy will mean having a set standard for everyone and that is hard for me to conceive.

        Creation and evolution will crease if a standard is set for everyone.
