Stop Running The Race … Enjoy The Present Moment
Every soul seeks happiness. While happiness itself is searched for its own sake, many other goals such as health, beauty, money, or power are valued, because we expect that this is what will make us happy.
In today’s world there have been unprecedented advancements in the areas of medical science and technology, but when it comes to attaining this blessed and beautiful state of happiness, not much has changed. We often end up feeling that instead of being filled with happiness, instead we have spent our time feeling anxious and pressured to attain something, which could lead us to success and happiness.The sense of happiness, a natural state of being to each soul, has become very difficult to experience in the world today, because it has become dependent on physical attainments and achievements.
As children, we were thrilled and happy naturally. We could share our experiences of such joys in response to simple events like hearing a bird chirping or sharing our snacks with a good friend. As we became older, pressure set in to achieve extrinsic goals like success in education, business, or even raising a family. This has resulted in losing the awareness that our first basic goal or responsibility is to express our joy of being.
For when we go against our own nature to be happy, we can never reach anywhere.
We each have a picture of what we wish to accomplish in this life. Though it may be a vague glimmering merged beneath your ordinary state of awareness…meditation can help you get in touch with it!
We aspire for different types of success. It could be money, health and social relationships. How close we get to attaining that goal becomes our measure for the quality of our life. The problem arises when we become so obsessed with achieving something, that we stop deriving joy from the present moment. Don’t let this happen to you! Happiness truly does lie within; it is intrinsic to the soul. Come enjoy discovering your hidden treasure of happiness through Raja Yoga Meditation.
