Today is World Environmental Day. You know, environment is not just the plants, trees and mountains. We are also part of the environment. Caring for each other and seeing that we are all happy is also part of the environment. Don’t you agree? Yes!
If you see, all over the world in the Aboriginal areas where the tribal people are¬ living, or looking after the forests and animals, they do not pollute the environment.
Do you know, when we are stressed and unhappy, we tend to pollute the environment much more. If you just sit with a person who is angry, upset or negative for 10 minutes, when you walk away from them, you also carry a little bit of their frustrations with you. When you spend a little time with those who are happy, for example with little kids, and when you move away from there, you carry their joy.
Today, the topic being happiness, I feel that it is perfectly timed because it coincides with the World Environmental Day! We not only physically pollute the environment but we mentally, emotionally and spiritually also pollute the environment. Our minds are so sensitive that it can catch on to the thought waves and vibrations of others around us. Happiness is the unpolluted vibrations that come from within us.
We are all born happy, every child is born happy and we emit the happiness, but in the course of growing up, education and dealing with people all around, somewhere we lose the purity and serenity that we were all born with. We need to get back to our true nature which is innocence, which is simplicity, which is honesty, and then we are caring for the environment. And how can we do that? First of all, we need to get rid of stress, we need to get rid of mistrust towards with each other and start bringing a sense of celebration to our lives.
We convey more through our vibrations, than through our words. Each one of us emits vibrations and these vibrations get polluted when we are stressed, angry, upset and frustrated. The way to purity our presence and our vibrations is through meditation. It brings the transformation from negative vibes to positive vibes, from hatred to love, from frustration to confidence, from despair to hope and from ignorance to intuition. Don’t you want this? Everyone wants this.
Every husband and wife wants to be intuitive; they want to know what the other is doing when they are not with them. Every business man wants to be intuitive, so that they know where they can invest. For a research scientist intuition is absolutely essential, and I don’t have to say how important intuition is to a politician. They suffer a great deal when they do not have any intuition.
Similarly, innovation is essential to maintain any business. Innovation is essential to maintain and grow any business. Meditation, provides, energy, intuition, innovation and enthusiasm. Who does not want to meditate then. Not only this, it can create a better atmosphere around you.
Another way to purify our vibrations is by taking part in art and culture. Being part of art and dance is good. Not just sitting and watching for some time, but being a part of it for some time. Participate! Do not worry about your steps, whether you can put the steps correctly or gracefully or not.
The next way is to reach out to the people who are in need and serve them. These three things will help you. Not thinking 'What about me, where will I go?' Think, 'What can I do, how can I help? How can I contribute'. These intentions can change our vibes and they can keep us much happier.
