Today, a man turned up to my office. He was around sixty years old, wearing a white dirty shirt and a black pant. With despair look on his face and great difficulty he stepped up the stairs, as his feet were wounded and his age made it worse.
He was carrying two poly-bags. We approached him to figure out the purpose of his visit. So, he took out few plastic bundles from the poly-bag. Those bundles were full of hand made designer envelopes. Those envelopes were beautiful enough to express the creativity of the person. On further inquiry he said "I am badly in need of a job which could give me something to eat and live."
He continued "I was rich businessmen in
Maharashtra with 200 looms and granite business but few years’ back I lost crores of rupees as all granite was damaged and useless. Following the incident, my sons have thrown me out of the home. They kept my wife because she do their household work and take care of their children. I am all alone now with no one to take care. Job is must for me."
A man with lot of creativity and a big family with two sons and their family, who was once a rich man, is now poor and lonely, at such a point of his life when he needs them the most.
What idea does it give you about life??
Children have grown thankless? Life is uncertain? Or Money is important? What is that??
I think its just happiness. A happiness which doesn't depend on anything or anyone. Neither a relationship nor money can bring you happiness, both of them are big time dumpers.So, the question is where is happiness?
Since,we can comprehend things, we were asked to behave properly, study, be in competition establish with a good career. What I feel is it’s just a mere assumption, because we tend to be in our comfort zones and particularities, in fear of pain we end up in creating an unstable wealth.
What is left with that man except brooding over his past? Memories seem to be a big stain on white silk cloth of his past. He will die and dissolve in the same mud of which he was born...What next?? Again he will be born in some other place,as a well known and scientifically proved fact, soul never dies, and repeat the same boring cycle with a washed off memory. Again and again and again...
Do you think that is what life all about? If your answer is "NO”, so congratulations!!,you have already started living. And,
If your answer is "YES”, you don't need a psychiatrist. But a master or guru who knows what the Life is. He will direct you in a much better way of being happy. He will make you meet yourself. You will realize the talents and powers in yourself. The immense joy and happiness in you.
|ITS IN YOUR CLUTCH|
SPIRITUALITY is the best way of being happy.It is beyond any religion.Its about human happiness.Problems will come,but you will always be able to handle them.Start praying and surrendering,it makes you stronger.
