In what you may wonder. Well, do you have enough control over your own self? Yes, you may answer, you have 500 people working under you, and sitting at a place you can control things virtually. Your words make hundreds dance on their seats. True, all this. But can you control your own self? Are you able to put the mobile away, when it’s family time? When it’s time to call it a day, do you do it willingly or keep postponing one more minute, one more minute, etc. Or worse, if your inner calling, asks you to start working for the good of society, how many of you listen? Well, the answer to most above questions would be “NO”. And why is it so, because, we have become slaves to our minds, says Saint Ram Rahim Ji.
Each of us has been created with one aspect of our mind constantly dwindling on the negative side. Also called “mana”, this negative mind will ask you to break rules, take a holiday, sleep for some more, eat and be merry. This “mana” is also the culprit for all the negative thoughts that arise in you. It will make you doubt every situation, your capabilities and even the intent of others doing good for society. In short, “mana” is the agent of Satan, says Baba Ram Rahim Ji. It will constantly make you sad for no reason. You can fight your own “mana” with your will power which is diminishing day by day. And this will power can be gained through meditation.
Even in happy situations, your happiness is felt empty. So real happiness does not come from material aspects of life. But real happiness is connected with the spirit, the soul. This comes from doing well for others, working for the welfare of others. And this can be experienced only through virtuous deeds. And does not take fancy clothes, vehicles, or a lot of money. You can just share some part of your earnings, however big or small they may be, with the less fortunate ones.
