Most of us look normal to others but each of us knows this is not the case. Deep inside, each of us is a bundle of nerves. Our happiness is only skin-deep, it is here this moment and gone the next.
Happiness makes its appearance and it is quickly replaced by confusion, which is in turn replaced by perplexity. This emotion vanishes and agitation takes its place. Disturbance, anger, chaos, uncertainty, distraction or the feeling of discontent, dissatisfaction or restlessness, any one of these emotions will quickly replace agitation.
This unending chain of unbridled and wild emotions runs riot and amok in us. Each of us yearns for happiness and peace but each is at a loss, he does not know how to achieve them nor does he know where to turn. This leaves him overwrought.
There is a way to reclaim our right to this happiness and peace but our belief system is standing in the way. Our misguided belief in the infallibility our present set of values (fame, position, acclaim, glory, distinction, power, wealth, status) blinds us to the invalidity of these values and the damage it has racked in our lives..
A way is available – the way to true values is through meditation! But not any meditation, only through the meditation taught by the Buddha.
Why is this so? It is because Buddha’s method of meditation is born out of his own experience. He struggled to find it and the method He found gives Him happiness and peace. Millions of others who followed Him found these two soothing qualities in their lives. Millions more who are now following His method can attest to the validity of His teachings as they, too, find their lives are more happy and peaceful. Try it and then be critical, don’t be critical before you try it.
What is more amazing is that Buddha asks you not to take what He teaches on its face value. He asks you to test what He teaches for yourself and if you find what He teaches is of no good, then thrown it all away. Dare you take up His challenge?
Try it and find your happiness and peace.
