Happiness is our nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside - Ramana Maharshi

 Why do You Sleep?
Date Sent: December 08, 2012

It is our 'ego', 'attachment' and 'ownership' that is the cause of our miseries (bondage). These 3 never let us experience real happiness even for a single moment. We are consistently feeding these 3 vultures which in turn fly away with our peace and happiness. There is no power in the world that can hurt us if we can get rid these 3.

Attaining God is not about gaining something, it is about losing what you are carrying (trash bag of bondage). Try to reduce the stuff in that trash bag one thing at a time; you will experience the bliss, one moment at a time.

"I'm sorry but this area is reserved for the elite," he said, "May I ask if you are a VIP?"

"I'm higher than that."

"Oh, are you a VVIP then?"

"No. Higher than that."

"You don't look like a royal minister, are you—"

"What's a royal minister in front of me?" the saint interjected, "I'm higher than that."

"So are you a relative of the king?"

"Way higher than that."

The chief mocked, "Oh! I'm sorry your highness, you must be the king himself."

"Higher than him."

"That's utter nonsense, nobody is higher than the king."

"Exactly. I'm nobody!" exclaimed the saint.

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.
