Happiness is our nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside - Ramana Maharshi
 Five Headed Cobra and The Bliss
 
Date Sent: November 17, 2012

We should stop being proud of ourselves (“I” and “Me”) - We are nothing more than a slave of a monkey (mind.) Vultures (of though waves) are consistently feeding on us. 6 wolves (lust, anger, greed, attachment, ego & envy) are dragging us on the streets. Worth of our life is nothing more than a trash bag...full of trash (past memories, current problems & future dreams.) Even worms live life of "eat, sleep, weep & enjoy".

Everyone came alone, naked and weeping. We will go alone, naked and weeping. Our desires are the cause of our misery. What is five headed cobra? It is your mind (cobra) that operates through its 5 heads (5 sense organs). Only those who tame the Cobra (of Mind) that operates through its 5 heads (sense organs) attain the Bliss, everyone else continues their miserable journey through cycles of birth and death.

Your mind is a bull that has mauled you many times in the past and will continue to do so until you keep feeding it.

You have two bulls in your mind. One is eternally calm and happy. The other one is always restless and indisposed. When they fight - who will win?"

Answer: “The one you will feed more will win! Their victory depends on their strength. It is not necessary that one will always defeat the other. However, if you constantly feed the calm bull more than the angry one, it will grow stronger, its chances of winning every time go up."

Forget the God, focus on your Mind, Mind and Mind. It will lead you to miseries when you lose control over it. Your mind will take you to Bliss when you have full control over it. (The difference between Lord Vishnu and us)

Below is a nice post by OM Swami that will help you understand the nature of two bulls you own.

By OM Swami

“In most people's inner universe, a constant battle goes on between positives and negatives, rights and wrongs, between good and bad. Sometimes, their positive side overpowers the negative one and other times it is vice-versa. At times they are able to overcome their anger and other negative emotions and sometimes such emotions overpower them....The demon within you impels you to do evil and the god in you prompts you to do good. They are not two separate entities, they are simply two aspects of the same mind, like two sides of the same coin. Next time you find yourself getting angry, when you find yourself getting lured to do the wrong thing, remind yourself that the god in you is losing the battle to the demon. That reminder, that awareness immediately weakens the demon. .....Meditationally speaking, gods and demons draw their power from the same source — your mind, it is a shared resource. So, if you strengthen your positive side, the negative one wanes automatically.

A sage asked his disciples, "I've two bulls in my mind. One is eternally calm and happy. The other one is always restless and indisposed. If the two go to fight, who will win?"

Some voted for the calm bull and others for the restless.

"It depends," the master said, "the one I feed more will win! Their victory depends on their strength. It is not necessary that one will always defeat the other. However, if you constantly feed the calm bull more than the angry one, it will grow stronger, its chances of winning every time go up."

Yoga is an exact science. It aims at the harmonious development of body, mind and soul. Everyone should follow one Yoga as their primary Yoga (based on their character). Then we must combine Karma Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyan Yoga. This “Yoga Synthesis” will lead one to the God.
