Hi friends lets dip into our depths and interpret the quote below meaningfully. Of course there are no right or wrong answers. Feel free and share your thoughts.
My own understanding is that what is permanent in life is ‘real’ and that which can perish is unreal. To be in a state of perpetual happiness and bliss even in tough times is to have implicit belief – in our ‘inner self’. It is our ‘inner-self’ that is permanent. Every other thing that we possess is temporary and on losing it we feel pain. Will it not be wonderful to seek our identity in our inner-selves and remain stable and in peace in all situations – good or bad?
This does not imply that we become recluses. It means if we believe our inner-selves are eternal and we become fearless. With this belief we can our lives fully and joyfully without attachment to the temporary. For being attached to something that is short-lived can only cause pain. You buy a beautiful car a BMW or a Mercedes and feel happy but the next day it gets dented and your happiness is gone. So lets enjoy life in full awareness of the ‘real’.
Lets remain anchored to the permanence in us.
