Jai Sai Master!
One of the most difficult things to happen in life for anyone is finding a place where they will find the ultimate peace and happiness. As we are born and brought up in a world yearning for comforts, filled with machines and mechanical motions, with a set pattern of living, it is very difficult to see beyond even when searching for true happiness. First of all, knowing that there is something beyond itself is a chance that comes once in a million. Even then, realising that it is THAT we are searching, is a one in a billion chance. By the time the billionth chance comes, our present life would be over.
But then, is there a way out? Yes. Searching for someone who is a realised soul. Not by judging them, but by following a defined path, a path well etched in our traditions and mentioned in holy books, like Bhagavadgita or Sri Gurucharitra. Only a realised soul can help us realise THAT, if our yearning sustains and flows over the brim. It is also mentioned in those books that such a person would appear when we are ready to receive what HE can tell and follow the same. That means, that search must be our life purpose and even our acts in materialistic life should be a part of that whole preparation or Sadhana.
In this HE says, only the presence of realised souls is the solution for cleansing our souls and preparing us to see beyond the materialistic world to realise the true happiness which we are searching for. There is no such thing as qualification which is linked to this process. They will always be in the same state of bliss and treat everyone with same love and affection. It is only us, who will not be able to realise the same as we are not in a position to feel or appreciate the love and affection. (You can read the book online here in Telugu. For other books by Sri Sai Master and available online, refer here.)
The only way for anyone to appreciate the same state of bliss as the realised souls is to find them, approach them with openness and be in their presence yearning for the same. This must be the ULTIMATE purpose of every human being which only can bring about the change the way the we function as a part of this large canvas called World. Let such noble purpose drive our lives and motivates us constantly!
Jai Sai Master!!
