Nithyananda’s Simple keys for blissful living
Liberate yourself from the problems of your mind
Do you know that the mind is not a solid thing, as you imagine? What you call ‘mind’ is no more than a constant flow of thoughts, where each thought is being swiftly replaced by the next. You hardly have any control over what thought is going to enter your mind next - because thoughts themselves flow in an illogical, chaotic manner.
But we give too much importance to this chaotic mind! For instance, we start connecting a few thoughts that run through our mind, and start giving profound meanings to them. If you believe that your whole life has been suffering, you unconsciously collect and connect only the painful incidents of your life, which strengthen your belief that life is suffering. This is called creating a ‘pain shaft’ – making an imaginary connection between disconnected painful incidents, which gives the impression that life itself is painful. Sometimes, very rarely, you believe life is joy! Then you connect all the joyful incidents and start believing life is joy. But whether you create a pain shaft or a joy shaft, please understand that both are not true, because the shaft itself does not exist outside of your imagination!
When we learn to disconnect or ‘unclutch’ from our thoughts, we become free of the play of the mind. We start living in the moment, without preconceived ideas. When you live above the play of the mind, you are living enlightenment.
You are a miracle of Existence!
Handling life situations with ease
Conflict-free living is living completely at ease with your body, your mind, and the circumstances that you experience in the outer world. We continuously experience some conflict or the other every moment - in our relationships, our goals, in our desires, in life situations. We invariably attribute our conflict to someone or something in the outer world. We blame the outer world for it. People ask me, ‘Swamiji, how can I be conflict-free in a world that is filled with conflict? Only when the whole world is silent, happy and peaceful, can I become conflict-free.’ Every leader who declared war claimed that he was going to bring peace to the world!
A conflict-free world starts with a conflict-free individual. To start living a conflict-free life, all you need to do is bring in the energy to change the things that need to change in your life, and the intelligence to accept what need not change. Above all, understand that whether you change anything or not, life itself is a continuously changing phenomenon.
Once you realize this, you will naturally hold onto the one thing that never changes: the eternally unchanging Truth. Then you will automatically be conflict-free. When you start living a conflict-free life, you start living enlightenment. When there is no conflict inside, you experience no conflict in the world! Paramahamsa Nithyananda
