Joy is within us contd.

Santosha (Contentment)

The simple yogic antidote to this problem of the endless chase after the mirage of permanent pleasure is to go to the next level and cultivate Santosha (contentment)

Practicing of Santosha is essential, because it is the fastest way to decrease the agitation which comes from frustration, discomfort, and unsatisfied desire.

Santosha is being OK with what we have, accepting what we are, without feeling the need for anything extra to make us happy. Santosha is not having the desire for anything other than what we need. Thus we can achieve real contentment only when we will give up striving for what is out of reach, to stop expecting more from life than it can give us, and to let go of the mental patterns that destroy our satisfaction like comparing our skills, character, possessions, and inner attainments with the surrounding people.

Joy is within us

In Sanskrit, there are basically four words for happiness

Sukha (Fleeting pleasure), Santosha (Contentment), Mudita (Spiritual Happiness), and Ananda (The Bliss)

Sukha is inseparably linked with its opposite: Dukha, or “suffering.”

This pain-pleasure dichotomy is one of the basic Dvandvas (Conflicts), the pairs of opposites that plague our lives as long as we live in the feeling of being separate from others and the world. Like hot and cold, birth and death, and praise and blame, Sukha (Pleasure) and Dukha (Suffering) inevitably follow each other because when our well-being depends on external conditions, it will always come and go. This problem Buddha noticed, which led him to formulate the first noble truth.

False Truth

Can someone help?I can tell you a truth. Never believe poets and writers. They are very apt in playing with words. Words are highly dangerous tool. These so called people ,you have guessed correctly, make a very sublime, sweet ,hot and humid mixture and put some ice cubes to flatter common man and woman. When they see pretty face and chiselled figure ,they floor her with their words. They praise her like anything and when they see someone else they start doing the same. I am not like them. I always praise genuinely. More over I am not a great writer or poet. I am great scribbler. Beautiful Ladies you are fire, you are ice, you are desire, you are music, you are colour, you are fragrance, you are essence of life. You always chirp like birds, move with grace and colour the place. Sail your smile and fill the hearts with life, breath your fragrance in the air and enliven everyone. Believe me you are signature of life. Never believe poets and writers. Only believe me beautiful Ladies. I am a simpleton. I never speak lie and never go near truth. That’s why I am the best blogger. Mind it.
