Master our inner life to find happiness


     Master our inner life to find happiness – Swami Chinmayananda

If we are efficient in meeting our own world – if we have ready dexterity, decisiveness, firm will, balance, equanimity, and right understanding – no situation in life can break or enslave us.

In our preoccupation with conquering nature and subduing her to serve us, we have ignored our own inner monstrosities.

Unless we learn to master our inner life, the outer scheme of life, however efficient and perfect, cannot but bring sorrow and unhappiness.

Our physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual personalities must be blended into one harmonious whole. The mind is able to view life as a whole. Meditation is the technique for achieving this harmony. It is the highest spiritual discipline. Through mediation we come to experience peace within ourselves. Internecine wars between desires end. Conflicts between duties no longer torment us. The mind is able to view life as a whole.
