Teaching on Happiness- Inspirational Lectures
The purpose of life is to be happy. So why are so many people miserable? We lack awareness of the spirit or light within us. And we change our values and desires from moment to moment.
In this discourse, Goswami gives advice on how to become and remain happy. If you are like most people, it means gradually making changes to your lifestyle.
First, get to know God, the Reality. You may think you know God. But do you even know the names of your next-door neighbors? Are you afraid, indifferent, distant from life? Be willing to explore life. To know life is to know God.
Knowing the Reality will bring great happiness. But you also need to develop wisdom, knowledge and spiritual techniques. One crucial step is to find the right livelihood. Decide what you really enjoy doing and take steps to make that your livelihood.
Overall, develop your spiritual life. “Make sure you leave yourself some time to center, inturn, and lift in awareness to the high place,” says Goswami. “Turn inward, meditate, dial in to sanity. Develop a lifestyle that allows you to become permanently happy, right here and now, in the eternal awareness of your own being.”
