For most of us Liberation would mean becoming free from negative thinking, ego, anxiety, despair and unhappiness. To be free from the continuous chatter and unproductive thinking Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj tells us to find solace beyond the mind. But how does one become free from the conflicting thoughts in our mind? Its almost as if the mind connives with thoughts of our past and of future and keep us in a constant state of fear and uncertainty. Yet we do have our moments of joy, beauty, creativity and bliss though such moments may be few and rare.
Such deep happiness cannot be from the mind but from a source which is found in simple virtues such as nature, spontaneity, awareness, humour, simplicity, humility, empathy creativity, music and the arts and so on. I request you my friends to share your own experience. How do you detach yourselves from the mind, get centered and enjoy moments in peace and contentedness?
