When you are happy, you don’t worry about anything. We are not talking about superficial, external happiness. We are talking about deep, inner happiness. When we have this happiness inside, we feel that everything is easy – nothing is difficult. If you think too much about something, you end up making the situation big and then start worrying about it. It could be an insignificant thing, but we make it big. If you do something good or if you do something well, you will automatically feel good inside.
We are able to experience inner happiness when our breathing is comfortable, our thoughts are peaceful and our feelings are positive–then we are automatically happy and our time is being used well. For instance, in meditation, when we are all using our breath well, our thoughts are good and our time is being used in a worthwhile way, we automatically are free from the worry of thinking what is going to happen and how it will happen. When you have the attitude and mindset that everything is good and everything is going to be good, then it will be good.
What does meditation really mean? Your mind is good and your body is good too. It is in the consciousness and awareness that I am a soul seated in the centre of the forehead. The soul is in this body and so this body functions. In fact, you are a soul and the soul makes all the organs of the body work. We have the sense to know that we are the driver of the car and that the car is separate from us. When we realise that we are separate from the body, it is said that we have divine insight.
Our energy is being consumed and we are becoming empty when there is this tendency of being attached, attracted and influenced by others. When we have all relationships with that One, there is so much power within the self.
