Happiness Is Giving Yourself Wholeheartedly To Universe

What the sentence above means? Everyone is going to interpret it differently based on how they understand the meaning of happiness. It all depends upon what their beliefs are. It also depends upon if they are running after the material things or looking for happiness in spiritual sense and what they feel is the purpose of their life. What is the calling in their life?

Among Sikhs happiness is achieved by doing everything you need to sustain human body and remembering one and only GOD (Universe, Creator of life) every moment in your life. Giving you unconditionally to HIS will. That gives you an ultimate chance to be one with Almighty GOD whose present in all moments of our life. We give gratitude for all good things he bestows upon us. We are thankful for his kindness in our lives. We consistently ask for his guidance in doing right things and follow teachings in our holly Guru “Shri GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI”. That is what gives us happiness and peace in our lives.

I urge the people of this world to understand the principles of Sikh religion and see how it will affect their lives. It will bring peace, harmony, happiness and contentment in their lives. Sikh religion is only all inclusive religion, where men, women and people from all walks of life are treated equally. We are community based religion where people take care of people. Even in our community based food servings in temples people from all walks of life sit together in same place and in the same way. That is happiness in our life.

A YouTube video “Nishkam- Life, Love And Service: A Sikh Perspective” gives some view on Sikh Religion:

Feel Blissfully Happy

First goal humans have in their lives is to make enough money so they can support themselves and their families. Once they reach there, they want to have a good status in the society. Next destination is recognition by their peers in the society. They want to leave a legacy, whereby their name is left behind and people remember them. When such an esteemed person is asked what they really wanted most in their life, answer always was, “To be happy.” So supreme goal of everyone’s life is being blissfully happy not wealth, status and recognition.

Here is my take on the situation. We are all going in life wrong way. Path which everyone follows to reach their ultimate goal is incorrect. Since all those material things are not real goal, we should change our thinking. I am not advocating that we should not achieve material things. They are necessary for our existence in this society. They are the basis of conformity in our society. In addition, we strive to do something which will make us happy and at peace with ourselves. If you achieve happiness in your life, the other things will automatically come to you. We do not need to go through sequence we follow every day. If we achieve happiness and contentment in our lives we will attract material things also.

Way to do it is:

• By being able to serve others. Among Sikh religion it is most valued quality.
Solve someone else’s situation and be a part of other’s happiness.
Help somebody in need. That person’s happiness and thankfulness will catapult you into sea of happiness.
• Find something you always like to do, like things which also add to your happiness. These will make you feel happy and get enough resources to make a good living. You will be able to take care of your responsibilities, be happy and you will enjoy the process. It will not feel like a work.
Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t just conform to society.

Ultimate achievement in life is to be happy. So why waste your short stay in this universe concentrating on things which in the end do not count toward your success. Even if you are in a really bad situation, think about how can you turn it around and make it a positive experience. Find out what is your calling. If you try with sense of how it can be of service to fellow humans. You will start enjoying your journey in life.

Principle of service to others is expressed in free kitchens run by Sikhs all over the world. Extreme example of selfless service shown in the YouTube video below:
