Stop Running The Race … Enjoy The Present Moment (Part 1)

Every soul seeks happiness. While happiness itself is searched for its own sake, every other goal – health, beauty, money or power, is valued, because we expect that it will make us happy. Today, we have made a lot of advancement in the eras of medical science and technology, but when it comes to attaining this blessed and beautiful state of happiness, not much has changed and we could arguably conclude that we have made no progress at all. We often end up feeling that instead of being filled with happiness, we have wasted our precious moments in anxiety and pressure to attain something, which would eventually take us to success, thereby experiencing and achieving happiness. The visualization of happiness, a very natural state of being to any soul, has become very difficult to experience in the world today, because it is dependent on physical attainments and achievements.

As children, we were thrilled and happy naturally. We could share our experiences of such joys in response to simple events like hearing a bird humming, or sharing lunch with a friend. As we become old, we become pressurized to achieve goals like success in education, family, business, and often lose awareness of the reality that it is our fundamental responsibility as a person to first become a joyous being. If we go against our own nature to be happy, we will never reach anywhere. Each of us has a picture, however vague, of what we would like to accomplish in this life. We aspire for different types of success. It could be money, health and social relationships. How close we get to attaining that goal becomes the measure for the quality of our own lives. If it remains out of reach, we become resentful. The problem arises when we become so obsessed with it, that we stop deriving joy from the present moment. When this happens, we give up our own chances of contentment.

Fortune is in one’s own hands.

Expression:To have fortune in one’s own hands doesn’t mean to have it in the lines of one’s hands. It means to have the ability to make the best use of all the resources available. When they are put to the best use, they naturally increase. Through right actions one can draw the line of fortune as long as desired.

Experience: When I understand the significance of my actions and create an elevated fortune for myself through right actions, I am able to experience constant progress in my life. I also naturally become an inspiration for others too, so that they can discover their inner resources to create an elevated fortune for themselves.
