Remain Naturally Established in Your Aim – 2

A true spiritual aspirant cannot sit still without attaining his goal. In this world, if he acquired wealth, then what is the big deal? If honor and respect is attained, then what is so great about it? If he receives rest and relaxation, then what’s so special? Wealth, name, fame, honor, respect happiness, rest-relaxation etc, are not the greatest of all things in this world. If the best of all is not attained, then what has been attained? In other words, nothing has been attained. With ease you eat, drink, sleep etc., but all this even the animals are capable of doing. However, the man with his discriminative faculty is capable of far more. The glories of this human body are that it can attain the highest gains of all the other species. This human body is a rarity even for the demi-gods “devatas”. The demi-gods have access of all types of sense enjoyments, yet they crave for a human birth.

Worldly pleasures cannot make a man happy. The main reason is that man himself remains at all times (eternal), but the sense pleasures do not remain. For how long will we keep such sense enjoyments with us? How long will these sense enjoyments remain? How much happiness and contentment will you get from it? On not being attentive to this, man remains negligent and careless. If one gets millions and billions of dollars, then too there will not be satisfaction. As more money is acquired, to that extent the thirst (trushnaa) for it will also increase. As the thirst increases, lies, cheating, stealing, dishonesty, mistrust, trickery etc and many other sins will be incurred, due to which there will be an even greater fall. This is the absolute truth.

You cannot keep the perishable objects with you forever, nor can you stay with them forever. One day you will have to leave all of it. Therefore what great work have you done, by taking in your possession that which will degenerate or will part ways? God has provided for the sustenance of this life for all beings; therefore there is no need to worry about this. The essential need is only one of attaining the true Essence. And for the attainment of this, the desire for sense enjoyments and hoarding are the two main obstacles.

It is a very sad thing to remain at ease without realizing one’s real Nature (Essence, Divinity).

Man sometimes desires wealth, and sometimes name and fame, sometimes to remain free of disease, sometimes rest and relaxation, but in reality this is not the want of the real Self (essence). Therefore it is extremely essential to decide once and for all – what do I really want? Once the aim/goal is decided, then it will not be mistaken or forgotten. He who forgets, he did not have a single-pointed goal / aim in the first place.

As it has been said before, aim is that on attaining which, nothing further remains to be done, to be known or to be acquired. This is called attainment of the Essence (Self Realization), God Realization, realization of Divine Love, beholding God etc., whatever one wants, that alone he gets.
