Searching for Happiness is the Sure Way to Miss Happiness

Myth of Happiness

The fish deep in the sea thriving for water to quench its thirst; or a fish deep down in the sea striving to see the sea itself – these are the very acts of paradoxes of perversions and divergence from the very flow of life force or life abundance.

Men from down the ages are on a path of collusion and illusion to seek or catch a much cherished precious thing called ‘happiness’. Thanks to his endless capacity of imagination and fantasy, and thanks to the added up vast store of bountiful and beautified literary fiction, sermons, scriptures and discourses – the humankind is on an endless path of friction to find that ‘happiness’. Call it whatever you fancy like – ‘nirvana’, ‘eternal bliss’, ‘eternal freedom’, ‘liberation’, ‘moksha’ or ‘enlightenment’ or a vast host of many other endless profound junky-hunky holy words. The whole mankind is gripped in their greed to attain this ‘happiness’ – it’s more intense in those people whose pockets and stomach are full. And so are there a whole bigger bunches of ever growing numbers of spiritual gurus, saviours, popped up to help the gullible people attain the falsified things like ‘enlightenment’, ‘eternal happiness and power’ and all such kind of utter nonsense. An ever growing bigger fertile land of business is presented out there for these thriving glorious gurus to feed on the ‘fouls and souls’ of gullible mass people. The otherwise sane and happy people are nicely trapped in noble holy cradles of these gurus in the name of so called noble cause. These gurus have taken a great mantle of so called sacrifice and responsibility to liberate the humanity from their miseries and restore peace and harmony on this earth – the biggest lie and myth ever floated on this beautiful planet earth by these greedy gurus.

The biggest strategy of these gurus and messiahs is ‘to never allow the gullible people to live as they are, but to stir and turn them to live as it should be’ – the most false and life-insulting foundation. Is there any bigger lie or myth than this? The whole humanity is suffering because of this wrong foundation. Our nature loving sane children are made to think otherwise to strive and struggle. Earlier there were wars and fights for the simple gross survival and food needs. Now the nations, political powers, priest platforms are continuously waging wars day in and out for the so called far more sophisticated vested trivial issues and ideologies. Weapons of mass destruction are in the hands of blood-thirsty petty politicians and the powers that may be. Today the biggest threat to this planet earth is from the ‘unholy’ alliance between these power politicians and spiritual gurus.

Our life is like ‘as it is’, it is less like ‘as it should be’. Once many of our false problems, false solutions, false searches, false seeking are dropped, a major chunk of ‘friction’ that we are witnessing today may at once disappear and we may breathe in a fresh air of relief. Life is more like an eternal cycle of change; and never may we desire for the so called ‘eternal happiness’ – that’s the very opposing and conflicting tenor of the flow of this life force.
