    Happiness (by hello)
    Dear friends, dear sisters and brothers, dear seekers, I wish to give a short talk on happiness. You want happiness. She and He wants happiness. I want happiness. Everybody wants happiness in life, from life. Each Creation wants happiness.. We want happiness and we need happiness. In this life of ours there are many things that we want but actually do not need. But when it is a matter of happiness, we not only want it, but we also need it. There is no happiness in mere seeing. There is no happiness in mere feeling. There is no happiness in mere achieving. Happiness can be found only in our self.

    Right now, here on earth, we enjoy false happiness in the body, vital, mind and heart. The body enjoys happiness in the world of pleasure and lethargy. The vital enjoys happiness in the world of aggression. The mind enjoys happiness when it doubts and suspects. The heart enjoys happiness when it treasures insecurity. This is the way we enjoy happiness in the beginning. But there comes a time when real happiness, divine happiness, dawns. At that time the body is fully awake and consciously offering its service-light, the vital is dynamic, the mind is calm and quiet and the heart feels its oneness, its inseparable oneness, with the rest of the world.

    We have two main instruments: the mind and the heart. The mind finds it difficult to be happy, precisely because the mind consciously enjoys the sense of separativity. It is always judging and doubting the reality in others. This is the human mind, the ordinary physical mind, the earth-bound mind. But we also have the aspiring heart, the loving heart. This loving heart is free from insecurity, for it has already established its oneness with the rest of the world. This heart carries the message of self-offering.

    You Will be Happy and get Love

    Minimise your wants,
    You will be happy.
    Fulfil your needs,
    You will be happy.
    Divinise your thoughts,
    You will be happy.
    Immortalise your faith,
    You will be happy.
    Rectify your mistakes,
    You will be happy.
    Intensify your cry,
    You will be happy.
    ~

    Love the world
    With your heart's dreams.
    Serve the world
    With your life's promises.

    ~


    Love is not a thing to understand.
    Love is not a thing to feel.
    Love is not a thing to give and receive.
    Love is a thing only to become
    And eternally be.
    ~

    The most effective medicine
    Here on earth
    Is love unconditional.

    ~

    The hands of
    Power
    Are often destructive.
    The hands of
    Love
    Are always creative.

    ~


    No remedy for black hate?
    Who says?
    Just love
    And love more,
    That's all.
    No remedy for helpless fear?
    Who says?
    Just love
    And love more,
    That's all.
    No remedy for blind darkness?
    Who says?
    Just love
    And love more,
    That's all.
    No remedy for lengthy bondage?
    Who says?
    Just love
    And love more,
    That's all.

    I like what you have said. I would agree with some of it because it coinsides with my own beliefs. Love is definitely beyond this world, and I have yet to tap into it fully. A lot of what you wrote is easy to say but hard to do. I don't believe it is realistic to be in the this world and be happy all the time. Its the whole yin and yang thing. Without sadness how would you know when your happy, without happiness how would you know when your sad. Happiness is about duality. I think it is more achievable to find peace of mind. Happiness will fade away, sadness will fade away, peace is always with us, and is neutral. I've just learned to love the idea of peace more than happiness. Thats my 2 cents
