Are you Happy? - A Talk by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
To be happy, you seek something. But despite getting it, you are not happy. All of one's life is spent in preparing to be happy someday in the future. It's like making your bed all night, but having no time to sleep in it.

Life tip #2:

Comfort: A quality of consciousness

Whatever one does is directed towards one goal, happiness or comfort. Often people think that comfort comes in a material way, through matter alone. Comfort is a quality of consciousness. To some degree it does depend on matter, but to a greater degree it depends on attitude and understanding.

Q: How to identify and remove impressions which are troubling me?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: 
"You are in right place. Just relax. It’ll be done for you. Some things you have to do for yourself. Some things you have to let others do it for you. You can’t say I can do everything by myself. If there is a surgery you should allow someone else to do it on you. If it’s a massage, you have to let someone else do it one you. You can’t say I will massage myself. But if you have to eat, you have to eat it yourself. You can’t say, I’m thirsty but let someone else drink for me! You have to drink, you have to eat and similarly you have to meditate yourself. The restless in the mind, the lack of focus, this comes by overutilization of our energy, of any of our senses. Suppose you are very focus or you are very centered, just go and see a movie. After three hours of sitting in a movie theater, the focus has gone. You sit and sit and listen to something, watch cricket for maybe two hours, afterwards just see how you’re mind is rattled. Vata imbalance has happened, the mind doesn’t focus. Similarly if there is an ambitious project and you are on it, and there is anxiety about the success of the project. Then forget about it, your centeredness is gone, your mind is also ruffled. Similarly, suppose if you have eaten too much, you’ve not had enough sleep, or there is an anxiousness to achieve something immediately or in the near future, the mind is not focused. It’s rattled. So overuse of any of our sense, touch, smell, taste, hearing, make you lose the focus. So in the Gita it is said that when you want your mind to be focused like a laser, drop all the five senses like sound, taste, smell, touch, everything, drop them all for some time and then you will notice the mind gets really centered and your intellect becomes like a laser, intellect becomes really sharp and focused. Like what you feel at the end of an advanced meditation program, or even middle or beginning, the mind as clear as crystal. The moment we start using our senses, more than its capacity, that’s when the drained feeling will be there. When the mind has the drained feeling there is not enough prana, not enough energy."

The true nature of the spirit is comprehension

You listen, you understand and you absorb. Who is understanding? Who is absorbing? It is the spirit in your body that is taking in the knowledge. And this knowledge is not coming through sight, sound, smell, taste and touch alone. It is also coming from inside as intuition.

"Life is more than matter. If it were just matter, there would be no need for comfort. Matter does not feel comfort or discomfort, beauty or ugliness, love or compassion, joy or sorrow. Will a chair ever feel sorry or happy? No, matter does not have these finer values. They belong to the realm of the spirit. But life is also more than spirit. If it were just spirit, there would be no need for water, food, or rest. Human life is a combination of both matter and spirit."
- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Over the next 2 weeks we'll be counting down 14 tips according to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar that will help you move through the fine balance of matter and spirit that we call life. Here is number 1!

1. The nature of the spirit

Spirit experiences and expresses values. Values are feelings and emotions -- that which cannot be captured totally by words or understood by the intellect. The goal of the spiritual path is to understand the spiritual dimension of life and live fully all the values that the spirit represents. What are those values? Peace, love, joy, beauty, unlimited knowledge, and the capacity to understand both mind and matter.
