What is true Happiness?

Is happiness a mental state, or an induced state by material possession. This post tries to explain what is happiness and how can one be happy at all times.


Before starting with the post, I want to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a happy & prosperous new year which is about to begin, may the coming year bring more happiness and love in your life than ever.

So coming back to the post. This post is about happiness and it’s importance in today’s time more than ever. Also some tips on how you can always be happy.
When I say the word Happiness the first thing that pops up in your wonderful brain is the personal definition of happiness which is true to you as an Individual. So what’s happiness and how some people are always happy (or most of the time)? Does happiness depend on money or the things we possess in this life, what exactly is happiness?

Happiness, as I define on my personal terms, is just a simple feeling within our mind which we experience throughout our body at times when things are the way we want them to be.

So why can’t we be happy at all times, why are people depressed and why do we care so much about happiness anyways?
There are many reasons for that, those reasons fall into different categories one of them is biology and it says that happiness is induced in our body by secretions of happy hormones like Serotonin, Endorphin, Dopamine. The next category has a spiritual base which says that being happy is our true state (blissful state or Nirvana state) is our original form and our every action should be towards achieving and being in that state.

But people get in an illusion that the state of Nirvana is easily achieved by attaching happiness with material things like Money, Cars, lavish lifestyle, possessing big houses etc. you get the idea. And then we wonder why people commit crimes, abuse others verbally/physically, use drugs and alcohol out of proportion. It all has to do with that person achieving happiness on a personal level. We do not gain the same happiness by performing actions which others find happiness in. For Eg: Some might find happiness in playing some sport, some might find it in dancing and some might find it while researching on space. It varies so much because everyone has their own definition of happiness. But all these happiness come nowhere close to the happiness one gains in a meditative state. It might come as a shock to some people hearing this for the first time that a person meditating by closing his eyes in an isolated environment with no thoughts of ego in his mind is hundred times happier than a billionaire celebrating his birthday on a private island with the most luxurious things in his possession. Well, its not just any happiness we are talking here it’s a blissful state of existence which we all experience before birth and after death.

And that is also one of the reasons why people love to use psychedelics because they get a glimpse of that feeling for a small time. Spiritually aware people who have never used drugs in their entire life are always in that state and if not can consciously create that feeling whenever and wherever they want.
There are many people who suffer today with depression, PTSD, anxiety disorders and many such disorders related to mental states because of various factors which may or may not have been in their control. But taking the easy way out by indulging in fast food, overuse of drugs and drinking alcohol will just shift your mental state for a couple of hours what about later?

A person who has a daily wage job, living with family, having 2 meals a day can be happier than a person who lives in a mansion with his family and has 4 meals a day. How’s that possible some may wonder, the answer lies in expectation of a person with his life? Now some may argue at this point that without money you won’t be able to educate your children or have 2 good meals a day also live in livable conditions at home, they are correct and I personally think so too that in whatever conditions we are born in we should not be satisfied with them and we should try and change them for giving ourselves and our family a good life, also if we have more than enough then giving others food or money can definitely make you happy and add to some good karma points in your life 😉 . But then again your continuous struggle towards earning more stuff will make you sad, at that point, you can compare yourself with those who are happy and content with whatever they have in their life. You would have definitely observed that the generation that has lived before you have been happier than your generation. Have you ever thought of the reason behind it? Why has my grandfather always been happy with a simple lifestyle and never suffered any type of depression, the answer is simple we are moving towards a generation where we think the more things we possess the happier our lives will be, which is not true as you might have come to know till now, if not this is the best time to think about it.

So to end the post with few lines I would tell you that being happy has always been easy and it’s how you define happiness is the only thing which is going to make difference in your life on a personal level. But for eternal bliss and staying happy in a more impactful way you can start meditating and see the difference for yourself.

The Big Questions

Sometimes in life we have some questions which we cannot ask everyone because we are sure they won’t be able to answer them, this blog will guide you towards what you can do about it.

Who am I? Is everything in this universe connected? Is the observable universe an illusion? Why everything in Nature happens in a perfect order? Why is there a perfect symmetry in all living and non-living object? Are we living in a multidimensional and multiverse at every moment? What happens after we die? Does the consciousness still continue to exist?

These are just some of the questions I am sure you have asked yourself or googled about if you have ever been interested in knowing something more than what is taught in today’s educational institutions or just for exploring the frontiers of spirituality.

I was always curious and still am curious about finding answers to some of these questions and believe me the more I ask, I get closer towards finding the answer but with more complicated and complex questions.  I know this life is not just about getting an education, then a job or just about earning money and getting along with life it’s about something more important more meaningful.  And then the biggest question is If we are able to question about this stuff, it is possible to find answers for them. Because if there were no answers towards some concept we cannot even question it.

For Eg: When we think about questioning our non-existence, it’s difficult to comprehend the concept of us being non-existent. And we cannot enquire about it further because the moment you think about something it starts the existence of everything.

But some questions like consciousness and its relationship with our intellect and memories is possible and the answers can be explored when we are in a state of deep thinking or relaxed state. In our daily life, we cannot think about such concepts because of all the chaos which is going on in our mind. For such questions to be answered we need to be in a meditative state because we do not need any stress or chatter going on in our mind.

Every spiritual person who has ever come across any theories or answers towards these big questions will be in a state of relaxation and like a sudden bolt of lightning he is like “Ohh that’s why it exists”. It’s unique and personal every time with everyone.

The basis of all religion have always been on the basis of such questions and that has motivated people to search and explore spirituality that is looking within their selves for the answers.

So If you are like me and trying to find answers for such questions you can just relax by doing some deep breathing exercises and get in a meditative state and ask the question over and over again in your mind, and slowly as your mind chatter will settle down a small voice in your head will start giving you glimpses of wonderful things from which the answers will emerge.


Does Spirituality mean believing in something that does not Exist?

Every person tries to question his reality at some point in his life. This blog provides some insight about it.

We always have heard people who are religious in nature not accepting concepts of spirituality because they find it difficult to believe in the oneness of God. The concept of God has been exploited by various religions and are customized today as per one’s need. I prefer calling it “Personal God”. Very few people realize that Spirituality has a science behind it, and it always works no matter what. Spirituality works like laws of physics work, they are perfect in all sense and they will always be so. When I say that they work, some people can question me with “How did I come to know?” I can answer your question in this very blog.

I was always religious and being born and brought up in a Hindu family, I was accustomed to a normal Hindu religion which was following many gods and never to question its existence or ask for any reason. This all changed later on and I became who I am now. And I really feel comfortable with the knowledge I have gained through time, reading, exploring & searching for some questions which I never got to ask before. For people who don’t agree with me or are criticizing me right now please read the whole blog and then continue with the same.

Spirituality is a science of oneness, it can be called as getting to the original form of a human being. Well, that certainly sounded superfluous for people hearing it for the first time. But yeah that is the truth. To put my whole knowledge which is collected over year in just one line, I would say that “We all are one and one Energy alone.” This is what spirituality is for me. To find the oneness with other humans, nature, and this mystical universe. Which is same as a universe which exists within each of us, because we are composed of exactly the same matter and energy which has composed this whole existence. And your thoughts are a big part of it, manipulating the entire existence as per your beliefs and feelings. Does universe exist when we cease to exist? Yes, we do exist when we are not in some physical body. And we will continue to exist forever, going through various forms because we are just energy and energy alone. We are never going to be destroyed ever again. But then the question comes, How were we created in the first place? The ultimate question of all ages. The answer for me is we were always there, it means we were already existing before we came into being and we will always be existing forever.

But how does this explanation argue with Other religions and the concept of GOD? For me this universe and the energy which is existing within all of us. The sum total of all this is the real GOD. This is an intelligent universe, its customizable according to our beliefs and thoughts. Because that is the only medium of communication between you and the universe.  You can manipulate matter, conditions, experiences which come in your life. So Spirituality is knowing this ultimate truth, the regular practitioner of meditation would know that the happiness one receives when one is in that state is hard to describe and we soon realize that we are happy and want nothing from this life. We are just one and we all come into the same world, have a ifferent experience and then leave this temporary body and move to next one. Spirituality is 100 times better than one religion or all religion because we do not get bind to some rules which if we do not want to follow, still we have to follow. Instead it teaches us about love, kindness, helping someone, compassion and other good things which bring out the good in us.

Finding Yogi

Who is a true yogi? Should we even follow a spiritual teacher in today’s world? I try to answer some of these questions in this blog.

Please be advised that the following post is my view on the topic, and I am not pointing a finger at any individual person whom you believe is a true Yogi/Sadhu/God men. I am presenting my personal perspective on this topic. 

“Not all people are same, some are real some are just good actors”

Me and you both are in search of our true self, our roots, the real meaning of our life. We have asked this question to our self, to our elder’s, to the priest’s in temple’s or any worship places we have been but still we did not find a clear answer. So finally we gave up and surrendered our self to the new generation con-men of our society who take help of our weakness and make it their own strength. Which resulted in a start of a generation where these Baba’s started Raping girls, making money from poor people’s hard earned money, some started purchasing properties, Cars, and many other things, all under the name of showing you or answering your so called “complex questions about true meaning of our soul” which you have not yet found for yourself. Having millions of dollars worth of cash, properties, investments, These so called ‘BABA’s’ take an important part of your brain which is the Subconscious mind and play tricks on it. By showing fake miracles, speaking godly words and phrases, taking non-sense and made-up meanings of an original context of a literature, and at the end of the day you claim to have seen a ‘God’ in that fake person.

History of this world had some wonderful and enlightened souls such as Buddha, Jesus, Sai Baba, Swami Vivekananda etc. who impacted the world in a beautiful manner, a true eye awakening moment for the people living on this planet. Then there were some prominent saints too, such as Sant Tukaram, Eknath, Namdev who lived in 16th century India who devoted their entire life in search of God and wrote beautiful poems, verses, books and various articles on the real meaning of god and most importantly stressed on an important part of “helping others” as a first duty of a person towards god. Never did these pure souls took a single penny from people attending their “Satsang”(A meeting in which saints share their knowledge with people). But things have changed, and it gave rise to Business minded baba’s making money out of something which is so basic as Yoga or as “complex” as an explanation of your soul. The mere need of getting answers from someone who knows anything about our true duties, present life, afterlife, how to wash away sins etc. gave rise to ‘God Business’. Isn’t the term a bit harsh to read and realize the reality? Also, does it present a hysterical irony that the person who claims to wash away your sins is committing a bigger sin by selling his knowledge, products, books, Ganga’s holy water, photos of god’s, bracelets and necklaces having photos of God? To be frank, I don’t believe in the concept of “Personal God”, those who are hearing this word for the first time, I will present a small explanation.

Personal God is a term which is used when people take their own concept of God and follow them blindly excluding all other types and forms of God. These people don’t believe in 1 common God but in billions of separate forms. Like a person who believes to be a follower of Lord Shiva will not believe or follow other person’s god-like Lord Jesus or Lord Buddha. This is what I refer to as Personal God. The common Psychology behind having a need to follow one particular type of god is because the human mind cannot believe in something which he cannot see, that is why the concept of God being everywhere and in every individual does not get followed by many people and we end up choosing our own form of God. I asked a person who was a follower of Lord Shiva that why did he choose him, Did he like the way he meditates or Did he like the background history of how he was created, the explanation he gave, made me realize how hilarious the world is. He said that my parents said that I should follow him, and once he had gone to a church with his friends and his parents got mad at him and told him not to follow any other religion other than our own.

The reason I am discussing the topic of personal god and different religion is because deep down that is the real reason for racial discrimination, riots in the name of religion, wars, and discrimination of religion.

And these con-men take help of our weakness and turn their small investment of few hundred rupees into crores of Indian rupees.

I guess the search for a true yogi is looking in a mirror, maybe read some good books and question the reality of the world and become more self-aware of our true self by helping people who need us.
