Om Paraanandaaya Namaha – Happiness mantra meaning:
”I am one with Divine Happiness, the Vishnu.”
Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives and includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves. Spirituality also involves a search for meaning in life.
Although the specific content of spiritual beliefs varies, all cultures have a similar concept of an ultimate, sacred, transcendent, and divine force.
Spirituality refers to our ultimate reality, the human experience or understanding of the world. Spirituality is the innermost path which enables an individual to discover the true essence of her or his being.
People who value spirituality take the time to reflect on their daily activities and ultimately build lasting and peaceful memories of their experiences.
Because spiritual individuals are more conscious of small, daily activities, they experience positive emotions linked with the smaller pleasures in life.
In other words, it’s little rituals and little things that can have a positive effect on your attitude, leading to happiness.
Don’t try to buy happiness
Sure, money helps, particularly if you start out poor and then do better. But a nationwide study published in Social Indicators Research found that people who avidly pursued possessions were less satisfied with their families, friendships, jobs, even their health, than individuals who were less materialistic.
Spirituality and happiness
Happiness is your true original nature, it is what you first experienced before you started to identify with a body, some school grades, a family role, your business card, your nationality, your social security number and any other common labels you keep.
The state of happiness is always encoded within the state of spirituality. Happiness relates to that non-definable, non-measurable and non-identifiable state of human condition, where feelings flow freely without fear of any perceived or existent threats.
Moreover, spirituality can be fostered through maintaining a tranquil lifestyle, quiet meditation, practicing a life of contemplation or bringing forth a soothing awareness to one’s life. Also, it is understanding the nature of consciousness, getting to know our true self, and transcending the physical world as we know it.
Once we have discovered inner peace and lose the need for worldly desires, it is easier to live loving and happier lives.
True happiness is being faithful to your original nature. The better you know yourself, what inspires you, what it is you love, what you are made of – the happier you will be. When you forget who you truly are, something happens, you begin to search for happiness.
