Happy Thoughts

People have added many of their own wrong beliefs and notions with meditation because of which the technique of meditation itself has become more important. The beliefs and notions that stick to the mind then become dirt and grime and spread the stench and destroy happiness. 'Meditation' is cleaning of the dirt so that we again become free from dirt, clean and pure.

One on one with oneness: Q/A with Sirshree

What truly is the goal of man

Seeker: What truly is the goal of man?

Sirshree: Every person wants happiness and that is why he tries to find a reason to be happy.

His happiness is in:

· getting appreciated

· celebrating the festivities of new year

· winning the bumper prize of a lottery

· getting cured from a disease

· someone accepting what he says

· getting promotion at work

· things happening according to his wishes

· an obstacle getting removed from his path

· telling and listening to a hilarious joke

· hurting an enemy

· going to garden and parks

· eating a variety of delicacies in restaurants and hotels

· shopping items of the latest fashion

· being fashionable and wearing new dresses

· receiving and decorating awards on the shelf

· celebrating birthdays and receiving gifts

· receiving jewels and jewelry

· giving birth to a child

· reconciling with an upset friend


Real happiness is without reason or cause. The happiness because of a reason disappears with the disappearance of the reason which would leave sorrow in its wake. How can the happiness without reason disappear?

This happiness

o is not because of losing something or gaining something

o does not diminish with time

o goes on increasing with time

o will not go anywhere or bring any sorrow

To attain this happiness is the goal of man. This is the real treasure of meditation due to Self Meditation.

Oneness Speaks: Gems from Sirshree.

Invoke the sense of responsibility, attain the goal

What kind of responsibility have we become ready to shoulder? Responsibility for the desired objective of life? Who are the people who want to take responsibility? How have you felt whenever you took responsibility?

You feel good, whenever you take responsibility. Think of the time when you had taken the responsibility of doing very well in a difficult examination after hard work, and did it! You felt very good. So long as there is ignorance, taking responsibility is burdensome and people shy away from it. But on reflecting deeply, you will understand that whenever you had taken any responsibility and fulfilled it, you felt completeness. And every person desires to feel complete.

If you are overweight, then take responsibility for reducing weight by so many pounds within so many months. The moment you take responsibility, you will feel a surge of energy and just the thought of responsibility will make you fulfil it. This would become a great inspiration.

You like to transact only with those who take responsibility. Would you like to deal with:

● the grocer who promises to deliver goods to your home at a certain time and does not?

● the friends who promise to complete a task, forget to do it, and tell you at the end moment that they could not?

You do not like to talk, interact or transact with irresponsible people. So also, people would like to interact with you, only when you become responsible. Ask yourself, what is your requirement today? Take responsibility for the weaknesses that you must get rid of, by doing which you would feel great. A smoker, who takes responsibility to quit smoking, feels so much blissful after actually quitting smoking which he would not have felt even while smoking. So ask yourself, what is the bad quality in me that I must eliminate? Which is the quality that I must imbibe? That quality could be faith, courage, communication skills, or knowing how to deal with different people. Feel responsible to imbibe all these qualities in you. Do not run away from taking responsibilities.

When you blame others for being irresponsible, ask yourself, 'Am I responsible enough?' The parents of a child are complaining to the principal about the school. The child was injured while trying to steal a book from the library and jumping off the window. The complaint was: Why was the glass of the window pane broken, due to which the child was hurt? But before complaining, the parents must ask this question to themselves, 'Who is responsible for the child resorting to stealing?'

Before complaining, contemplate on what your responsibility is and whether you have discharged it fully or not. When you do this, the habit of blaming breaks and you would become responsible for:

1. Making sure that no bad habit remains

2. Earning money for sustenance

3. Making a house of your own

4. Taking responsibility to help a friend

5. Striving to attain complete all-round development

When a friend is in need, and you are able to bail him out, then you would feel very good about it. Right from today, look around and see: Of all the things happening around you, what responsibility can you take? If your vicinity is dirty and you take the responsibility of cleaning it up, then you would see that the dirt gets removed. If you keep grumbling that 'people are like that. the government is like that.the municipal corporation is like that. then this work would never happen. When people do not flinch from committing to responsibilities, then all those things of the world would happen, which stand in front of you as problems.

When man gets liberated from ignorance, unconsciousness and laziness, then due to the feeling of freedom, he would desire to take responsibilities. In this state, taking responsibilities would not be a burden. A liberated person who takes responsibility for the liberation of other people considers it to be his Self Expression. The more you are liberated, the more would you desire to take responsibility. Taking responsibility is the proclamation of freedom, not of inviting troubles.

Take responsibility from today, invoke the feeling of responsibility. By taking responsibility, you would bring in all good qualities, eliminate all bad ones, and then you would be able to take the biggest of responsibilities, which is 'knowing yourself' or self-realisation. This responsibility too, must be taken by everybody, if not today, then tomorrow. Only after that is Complete Bright Development possible.

Parental responsibility

It is often seen that parents, who are expected to give 'understanding' to their children, often force their verdict upon them. The children then conduct themselves on these ready-made verdicts. The parents have undergone some bitter-sweet experiences earlier because of which they have concluded that people are bad, and the way the world is running is wrong. They hold onto their experiences and also force them upon their children. Then how can the children develop? They will also see the world through the eyes of their parents.

What is the fact? Is the world really bad? Are people bad? The same world that appears bad to us appears good to someone else. Therefore, let us give the freedom to our children to take decisions from their viewpoint and experience. May the parents not force their experiences upon their children. Allow them to choose their paths. Help the children in making their decisions but do not force your decisions on them. Give them this kind of a new life, new light and plan to live together happily.

Old Story, Golden Moral By Sirshree

On responsibility

A mendicant was roaming in the forest when he spotted an injured jackal. He felt sorry for the lame animal, wondering how it would survive without hunting for its food. A lion came dragging its prey, ate to its full, and left the rest for the injured jackal to feed on and went its way. The mendicant was elated and thanked God for the mercy shown to the poor animal. He felt that if God can take care of an animal, then He sure can take care of a mendicant like him. There is no need to worry for food and so saying he went and sat below a tree.

A day passed and the mendicant was hungry. But he felt that God would take care of his needs and continued sitting under the tree. The second day passed and there was no sign of any food coming. He waited patiently. But at the end of the third day he could wait no longer. He complained to God, "You had shown mercy to the injured animal, but you have no mercy on me."

A voice from the skies spoke: "If at all you want to imitate, then imitate the lion, not the lame animal!"

Moral: Take responsibility for your life. Fulfill your own responsibilities and help others when you can.
