Mind It's Mysteries & Control
Happiness has for ever been the prime aim of every human being. All activities of man are
directed towards acquiring the maximum happiness in life. But, through the wrong deluded notion
that objects will give happiness, man searches for it outside. The result is that in spite of all his
lifelong efforts, he gets disappointment only. Vexation and misery alone are to be seen everywhere.
The real lasting happiness lies within man. Such happiness or Ananda is the Inner Self, the
Antaratman. The very nature of Atman is pure Joy. This is never perceived because the mind is
completely externalised. As long as the mind is restlessly wandering about amidst objects, ever
fluctuating, excited, agitated and uncontrolled, this true joy cannot be realised and enjoyed. To
control the restless mind and perfectly still all thoughts and cravings is the greatest problem of man.
If he has subjugated the mind, he is the Emperor of emperors.
