Let’s talk about happiness Today..
“State of mind” you will find these words echoing whenever you ask anyone about it. Some will say it is joy that you find once you attain your goals or once you find the people you are seeking. I am still not able to absorb that. I won’t be philosophical but being at this point of my existence, though I might not be experienced enough to conclude that but being so dependent on others remarks and delivering our best to people only to find some recognition should not be the lone source of happiness, which is quite a thing nowadays. That state of mind which gets liberated once you find the words of identification is corrupt one. Liberating ourselves from all the dependencies and formulating our happiness majorly based on our inner self is what will make you achieve that true happiness. Once in a while lending a helping hand without asking for anything in return or having a cup of coffee alone can prove a major source of happiness for moments and all these moments build up your life and the story you are here to deliver. Materializing our happiness is a clear indication of our dependencies. Breaking yourself free of all the things that weigh you down, coming up as survivor all by yourself will boost you inner self and that boost which help you recognise your own self is a source of happiness. Have you found that boost or that inner self yet???

Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, skills, or objects. By most accounts, knowledge can be acquired in many different ways and from many sources, including but not limited to perception, reason, memory, testimony, scientific inquiry, education, and practice.
Value is the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.
So, does knowledge have intrinsic value or does it need to have a practical use to be valuable?
I would say knowledge does have intrinsic value, knowledge doesn’t have to have a practical use to be valuable. For example, we could have knowledge of the universe that isn’t practical to be able to be applied to life but is intrinsically valuable to us for our understanding.
But then isn’t that practical if we know something? Oh dear, down the rabbit hole again..
Can anybody have free-will if we make choices based on past knowledge which we gain through experiences; making choices by our perception. Hence is there free-will?
–Free will is defined as the ability to choose between different possible courses of action unimpeded. Free will is closely linked to the concepts of moral responsibility, praise, guilt, sin, and other judgements which apply only to actions that are freely chosen.
Modern physics tells us that we’re dreaming the world into being with every thought.
“Thinking is difficult, that is why most people judge.” — Carl Jung

Advaita Vedānta is a school of Hindu philosophy, and is a classic system of spiritual realization in Indian tradition. The term Advaita refers to the idea that Brahman alone is ultimately real, the phenomenal transient world is an illusory appearance of Brahman, and the true self, atman, is not different from Brahman.
“Buddhism is a spiritual tradition that focuses on personal spiritual development and the attainment of a deep insight into the true nature of life. There are 376 million followers worldwide.
Buddhists seek to reach a state of nirvana, following the path of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, who went on a quest for Enlightenment around the sixth century BC.
There is no belief in a personal god. Buddhists believe that nothing is fixed or permanent and that change is always possible. The path to Enlightenment is through the practice and development of morality, meditation and wisdom.
Buddhists believe that life is both endless and subject to impermanence, suffering and uncertainty. These states are called the tilakhana, or the three signs of existence. Existence is endless because individuals are reincarnated over and over again, experiencing suffering throughout many lives.
It is impermanent because no state, good or bad, lasts forever. Our mistaken belief that things can last is a chief cause of suffering.
The history of Buddhism is the story of one man’s spiritual journey to enlightenment, and of the teachings and ways of living that developed from it.
Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, was born into a royal family in present-day Nepal over 2500 years ago. He lived a life of privilege and luxury until one day he left the royal enclosure and encountered for the first time, an old man, a sick man, and a corpse. Disturbed by this he became a monk before adopting the harsh poverty of Indian asceticism. Neither path satisfied him and he decided to pursue the ‘Middle Way’ – a life without luxury but also without poverty.
Buddhists believe that one day, seated beneath the Bodhi tree (the tree of awakening), Siddhartha became deeply absorbed in meditation and reflected on his experience of life until he became enlightened.
By finding the path to enlightenment, Siddhartha was led from the pain of suffering and rebirth towards the path of enlightenment and became known as the Buddha or ‘awakened one’.
Schools of Buddhism
There are numerous different schools or sects of Buddhism. The two largest are Theravada Buddhism, which is most popular in Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Burma (Myanmar), and Mahayana Buddhism, which is strongest in Tibet, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Mongolia.
The majority of Buddhist sects do not seek to proselytise (preach and convert), with the notable exception of Nichiren Buddhism.
All schools of Buddhism seek to aid followers on a path of enlightenment.

There’s a lot
Smothered my soul
In laughter and gold
Yet deep in me
There’s a well of pain
I haven’t looked at
Of the psychological distress
That messes with my head
I know there are more of you out there
We are truly lit up
Even if appeared to be in the dark you see
You have this free
Infinity, you never die,
You never are born
You’ve done this all before
From this higher mind
It is all a harmonica
Of muffled voices
Turning into duality
Into the expansion of mind
There is no time
What can I do now?
Keep living in this bizzare world
Of corruption and lies
Evil is also good you see
These are concepts
We have developed
Yes in the human and soul eyes they are wrong
On that dimensional thinking
Step higher in your frequency
Yet they are also you and me
For you to look even deeper
In your understanding
Of what good and evil is
And what your concepts are
Where did they come from?
Who are you?

Sometimes you don’t appreciate something until it’s gone..
If you steal something, it can be stolen from you.
When you write openly and share honestly, this can be a magnet for those who seek the truth.
