Being Open to Happiness

The way of enlightenment is the enjoyment of happiness! When we have had enough of our unhappiness, then we will simply be happy. We have to surrender our unhappiness, this is how we embrace happiness.  Openness to happiness is a sign of spiritual maturity and enlightenment. One who enjoys happiness realizes that true enlightenment is not dependent on any momentary aberration. The unhappiness of un-fulfillment is transcended by the genuine enjoyment of real happiness.

Happiness is our Nature

Happiness is our inherent nature. You don’t have to search to be happy, you only have to stop seeking to be unhappy. When you stop looking to find happiness through temporary objects, then you are happy. Regardless of life’s apparent imperfections, everything is interconnected. Everything that happens, all occurrences, are a gift from God. Happiness is the enjoyment of our native condition, life is truly radiant with the blessing of the Divine.

Nirvana is the Key

Nirvana is the Key

There is no belief that we can hold that would be an ultimate solution to our dissatisfaction with the present situation, as the only solution to our state of separateness is Nirvana. Idealistic solutions are only temporary fixes for our suffering, it is not an ultimate answer for our unhappiness. All form has a beginning and an end, all things change, as all things appear and disappear. The unqualified nature of Brahman, our native condition, transcends all forms of temporary manifestation. The belief that fulfillment can be achieved through the limits of temporal experience is a delusion, it is a myth that we use to console ourselves in our denial of our native condition. Happiness cannot be achieved through sentient reality, the sooner we accept this truth, the sooner we will be happy. When we embrace Nirvana, our happiness will no longer be dependent on temporary objects or experiences; it will be a Happiness that is based on an understanding that transcends limited conditions. With Nirvana comes the unqualified enjoyment of the realization of Brahman, the True Self. Nirvana is the key to the ultimate enjoyment of enlightenment.


The Way to Enjoy Happiness

The Way to Enjoy Happiness

Happiness is enjoyed through the falling away of illusion. Enlightenment is the realization of the unqualified nature of Happiness, not the dilution of an illusory appearance that derives from perception and conception. In any case, what is required in order to truly enjoy Happiness is that we transcend the obstruction of our individualized experience. The true Reality of the Divine can be enjoyed when there is the transcendence of this false imagery of appearance. Only through these means can the ultimate nature of Happiness be enjoyed. The way to enjoy Happiness is through complete understanding of the true nature of the Divine. When the true nature of the Divine is understood the bliss of the Happiness is spontaneously enjoyed.

Divine Indifference

Divine Indifference

When I speak of indifference in spiritual terms, I don’t mean indifference in the usual sense of the word. This is because there is no receptivity, no sensitivity implied by the general use of the word indifference. When I am discussing indifference, I am speaking in terms of divine indifference. This is the kind of indifference that only appears through the recognition of the true state of conditions. Happiness is ultimately realized through the recognition and eventual understanding of the nature of conditional existence. When you have understood yourself, you will be divinely indifferent to the conditions that you suffer from. This is the quality of indifference that is enjoyed in Satsang. When you are happy, you will be indifferent to the qualities of your experience that make you unhappy. There will be no effort to avoid anything painful, you will simply be happy. When you have realized happiness you will be ecstatically indifferent.
