WHERE IS HAPPINESS?


It all started with a desire and dream. There are a variety of dreams and desires, but all sorts that are not really different. Why? Because all of that just to get one thing, namely happiness. Dreams and desires arise because our brains assume the intended final destination that desire can make us happy, love, or the like. But have we ever think back, what really really makes us happy?
Happiness can mean that something is really pleases us, entertaining, and simply make us feel comfortable. From another perspective, we can define that happiness is a state without anxiety, suffering, or the absence of the things that make us uncomfortable.Referring to the second definition, we could see some kind of anxiety, suffering and inconvenience, namely: birth, death, old age, and grief. We can also extend the cause of suffering as something that is not in line with expectations (desired). So, if we can overcome these inconveniences elements, it is probable that we are already happy.

DIMANA KEBAHAGIAAN ITU???


Semua berawal dari sebuah keinginan dan mimpi. Ada bermacam-macam mimpi dan keinginan, tapi semua macam itu tidak benar-benar berbeda. Kenapa? Karena semua itu hanya untuk mendapatkan satu hal, yakni kebahagiaan. Mimpi dan keinginan muncul karena otak kita menganggap tujuan akhir yang dituju keinginan tersebut bisa membuat kita senang, suka, atau sejenisnya. Tapi pernahkah kita berpikir ke belakang, apa sih yang sebenarnya benar-benar membuat kita berbahagia???

Kebahagiaan dapat berarti adanya sesuatu yang sangat menyenangkan kita, menghibur, dan singkatnya membuat perasaan kita nyaman. Dari perspektif lain, kita bisa mendefinisikan bahwa kebahagiaan merupakan keadaan tanpa kecemasan, penderitaan, atau ketiadaan hal-hal yang membuat kita tidak nyaman. Mengacu pada definisi kedua, kita bisa melihat beberapa jenis kecemasan, penderitaan dan ketidaknyamanan, yaitu : kelahiran, kematian, usia tua, dan duka cita. Kita juga bisa memperluas penyebab penderitaan itu sebagai sesuatu yang tidak sesuai dengan harapan (yang diinginkan). Jadi, kalau kita bisa mengatasi unsur-unsur ketidaknyamanan tersebut, besar kemungkinan bahwa kita sudah bahagia.

HINDU'S MANTRA MEDITATION

Mantra meditation practice and Om chanting can be a worthwhile experience for any individual.  Throughout the course of history, different cultures have believed in the sacrosanct power of words.
Mantras are words or phrases uttered repetitively by an individual undergoing meditation that helps open the mind-body-spirit complex.  With the use of sound, mantra meditation aids the person to completely empty one’s mind and connects with your deeper self.
There are a variety of mantras in the ancient language of Sanskrit used by the Hindu and Buddhist traditions that can guide you with your mantra meditation practice.
One of the most common mantras is “Om”: the King of mantras.

BE CAREFULL WITH YOUR DESIRE


When a man has given up the desires of his heart and is satisfied with the Self alone, be sure that he has reached the highest state.

When a man dwells on the objects of sense, he creates an attraction for them; attraction develops into desire, and desire breeds anger. Anger induces delusion; delusion, loss of memory; through loss of memory, reason is
shattered; and loss of reason leads to destruction. But the self-controlled soul, who moves amongst sense objects, free from either attachmentor repulsion, he wins eternal Peace. Having attained Peace, he becomes free from misery; for when the mind gains peace, right discrimination follows. Right discrimination is not for him who cannot concentrate. Without concentration, there cannot be meditation; he who cannot meditate must not expect peace; and without peace, how can anyone expect happiness?
