Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: What Is Life?

Often when you are happy you feel life is a dream because you do not believe in the reality of it. When there is misery you feel life as a burden. And we take trivial things very seriously. But one who has really gone through the pleasure realizes that pleasure is a burden. And if you have undergone misery thoroughly you will realize that life is a dream. In every miserable condition you have been walked or carried through and you realize life is a dream. When you see life is dream a burden or a joke only then can you be centered.

And when you have really gone through misery you have really seen life as a dream. And in between the pain and pleasure life is all a joke.

Life is very uncertain. Before it takes you away, realize it is a dream, a burden or a joke.

Someone asked: What about life is a joke?

Answer: A joke you do not question. If you question a joke, it is no longer a joke. Do not question a burden either. It is a waste of time to question life and its events.

The burden makes you go deep. It gets you to the core of yourself.

Realization of a dream wakes you up. And seeing life as a joke makes you light.

The only certainty is that life is a dream, a burden or a joke and only when you realize this can you be centered.

SUTRA: “If we are not centered within, then our awareness gets scattered. We will neither be intellectually sharp nor have harmony in our emotions.” – Sri Sri...

Jai Gurudev!

  1. So much truth in what these posts say. Only if we understand the life's essence.
