Be aware, be here and now, in present. Life is all in this moment. 

​Whether we realize or not we are always here and now because we cannot be anywhere else.Wherever we are it will always be here and now. We all are given only one moment at a time – and we can waste this moment in planning or worrying about the future but the future never comes. What comes will always here, now: it is a series of ?nows’ – one now, another now – but we are and will always be living in the now. It is because of the kind of worrying and planning we do for the future that a certain proverb exists in all the languages of the world: “Man goes on desiring, planning, worrying about the future – and God goes on disappointing him.”

Actually no one is there to disappoint us it is in our very planning we sow the seeds of disappointment as worrying about the future we are wasting the present; and slowly, slowly it becomes our second nature to worry about the future. So thus when the future comes, it will come as the present; and because of our wrong habit of worrying about the future we will again waste that moment also in worrying. 

Happiness is an art 

​Kindness we need to have for one another

To help the others grow 

Just like the rain 

Is needed for growth of plants. 

The more sunshine of love we spread

Will bring more happiness to self and others

Like the sunshine after rain

Which makes flowers bloom in colors

Giving each other hand in need

With compassion from heart within 

Will be just like the warmth we need

In cold days to warm us through the day. 

We need to Seek for the bliss

As it is our birthright.” 
We cannot remain lost in the jungle of pleasures. We need to rise little higher. Happiness is natural. It really needs no condition to be happy. If  happiness has a condition to it,we will always remain unhappy. If we cannot be happy just as we are ,we are never going to be happy ever. Unless we are happy, simply happy for no reason we are not going to be happy ever. Because we will always find something which will destroy our happiness as we will always feel like missing something. If we see deeply with awareness we will find the very desire for happiness brings about unhappiness. There is only one way to be happy and that is to be happy here and now, in present. Happiness is not a result. It is a way of life. It is an attitude, not a desire ,happiness is an art. 

Growth of self 

Growth is painful because of we been avoiding a thousand and one pains in our life. By avoiding that we cannot destroy them as they go on accumulating ,swallowing our pains they remain in our system. That’s why growth is painful when we start growing, when we decide to grow we have to face all the pains that we have repressed as we cannot just bypass them. Unfortunately not a single society has existed on the earth which has not been repressive of pain. All societies depend on repression. Two things they repress and teach.. one is pain another is pleasure. Their reasoning is stupid as they say that if we are not too happy we will never become too unhappy; if joy is destroyed we will never be deep in pain. Therefore they avoid pain and also avoid pleasure simply like avoiding death to avoid life.

But pain and pleasure grow together — if we really want to have a life of ecstasy we will also have to accept many agonies. If we want the peaks of the Himalayas we will have to cross the valleys. Instead of repressing we need to learn to enjoy both — the peak is as beautiful ,so is the valley. We need to learn enjoy the peak and learn to relax in the valley. Only after darkness can light come. 

A tree cannot grow without roots and the roots have to move deep into the soil. Pain and pleasure are intrinsic parts of life and by accepting and knowing this a real growth in us is possible.” May all beings grow”.
