Thriving Thougts

"Most of the energy we spend is like a footprint in the moving sands."

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that is already there -- buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks everyday. ~Deepak Chopra

We are always in endless quest for happiness, why is it so? Modern society and our belief pattern has been so much subconsciously programmed that fooled us into thinking happiness is out there somewhere, while the absolute truth is that it is right here, right now within us.

Sometimes I think most of our life's incidents are already predetermined. 

"Everything Is Predetermined." Einstein and Ramana Maharshi

 Albert Einstein said, "Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for insects as well as for the stars. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper."
Ramana Maharshi was asked, "Are only the important events in a man's life, such as his main occupation or profession, predetermined, or are trifling acts also, such as taking a cup of water or moving from one part of the room to another?"
Ramana Maharshi replied, "Everything is predetermined." 

If something is not meant for you, no matter how hard you try, whatever you do, you beg, you cry, you won't get it. If something is meant or destined for you, no matter how much you try to avoid, no matter what level of conspiracy your enemy does -- you are destined to meet that thing/event/occasion/person.

Three things cannot be long hidden -- The Sun, The Moon and The Truth.
I have written this post because most people involve themselves in other people's life so much, making them behave and act like the way s/he likes them.  So they even forget themselves. We care so much, we envy so much. To leave them alone is sometimes a good way to let the other being find their own way because even a glass of muddy water becomes clear in time if the water is allowed to sit undisturbed.
