HAPPINESS SPEAKS

B +Ve !!

“Happiness is something to be discovered within and not outside ”

– Anonymous

The following image explains a lot on happiness.

Happiness is always there within and a natural tendency of all human beings. I have read and heard people talking about happiness during conversations. Most people I know wants to remain always happy and they don’t want to face insecurity or difficult times. They reject all negative factors coming on the way to our happiness.

Many among us believe difficult times are invited by our own thoughts and deeds. It’s not a byproduct of any action of others in our environment. I like these thoughts as an optimistic approach towards life.

THE FIELD AND IT’S KNOWER

क्षेत्रक्षेत्रज्ञयोरेवमन्तरं ज्ञानचक्षुषा ।
भूतप्रकृतिमोक्षं च ये विदुर्यान्ति ते परम्‌॥

An executive shall know the subtle difference between the field and its knower. One is a physical factor and the other, an intrinsic knowledge of the physical forces. By virtue of his deeper consciousness, he should also be aware of the flow of actions arising out of human nature. (13.34)

इस प्रकार क्षेत्र और क्षेत्रज्ञ के भेद को (क्षेत्र को जड़, विकारी, क्षणिक और नाशवान तथा क्षेत्रज्ञ को नित्य, चेतन, अविकारी और अविनाशी जानना ही ‘उनके भेद को जानना’ है) तथा कार्य सहित प्रकृति से मुक्त होने को जो पुरुष ज्ञान नेत्रों द्वारा तत्व से जानते हैं, वे महात्माजन परम ब्रह्म परमात्मा को प्राप्त होते हैं
॥34॥

An executive shall know the subtle difference between the field and its knower. One is a physical factor and the other, an intrinsic knowledge of the physical forces. By virtue of his deeper consciousness, he should also be aware of the flow of actions arising out of human nature. (13.34)
