‘Inner joy and true happiness alone can stop the feverishness in society that arises through desires’

29th of Sep 2010

Delhi, India, Sept. 21, 2010:


The most fortunate event that can take place in our lives iswhen we feel, “I do not want anything, and I am here for you”. I have been bestowed with the goodfortune of feeling this way right from the beginning. My wish is to see moreand more people being able to think in this manner. Imagine how society wouldbe if each member of the society thinks the same way! This feeling, this virtueis already there in everyone, but it is just hidden somewhere deep inside.


When the leader of a country feels in this manner, only thenwill the country progress; and when he is focused on the development of thecountry and its people, it is impossible that the needs of the leader are notfulfilled. But if we focus only on our needs, then we don’t give ourselves and our abilities achance to blossom. We must always believe that our needs will be fulfilled. 


This does not mean that when you have some needs, yousuppress them saying, “I do not want anything”. This is a feeling that arisesfrom a state of contentment or fulfillment, and not by neglecting or suppressingyour needs, and fulfillment comes from spiritual knowledge. When you payattention and focus on the highest knowledge, then your needs are fulfilledeven before time.


Inner joy and true happiness alone can stop the feverishnessin society that arises through desires. This kind of inner joy and happinesscan only be achieved through knowledge. It is a matter of joy that The Art ofLiving is bringing together the various communities of the world. The core ofevery religion and culture is love, and The Art of Living is also based on thesame principle of LOVE, “I do not want anything and I am here for you”. More and more people around theworld should be able to develop the ability to say this.


If everyone starts to think like this, this world willbecome heaven. If everyone only thinks of taking something from someone, thenwe will continue to see the current world situation.


We are developing the world to make it a heaven, and itfeels very good to see it happening. So every day we move forward with thisbelief that ‘I amyours’. Love,action, fun and celebration are all present in this knowledge. All of this comesfrom the knowledge.
