Once upon a time lived a woman. She was struck with an unexpected tragedy as her husband passed away untimely. The lady was now left with only one son and precious jewelry . As she was hounded by creditors to repay the debts accrued by her husband she conjured a trick to hide the wealth.
In sheer desperation to keep the creditors at bay the lady hid the wealth in a piece of cloth and hid it under a tree. The mother and son lived in an impoverished state. Besides her mind was always disturbed about the fact that she did not share this piece of vital information with her only son. She carried this secret to the grave.
Consequently the son inherited plenty of debt, a barren hut and a cot. The son had to work hard for sustenance and to repay the ever increasing debt. He toiled hard to survive and regretted his misfortune.
‘ Property is not the sacred right. When a rich man becomes poor it is a misfortune , it is not a moral evil. When a poor man becomes a destitute , it is a moral evil, teeming with consequences and is injurious to society and morality ‘ opined Lord Acton. Indeed the impoverishment of the poor is heart wrenching.
One day while cutting the branches of a tree , he stumbled upon the jewelry. Dumbfounded and stupefied the strapping youngster hid the bijouterie in a pit he dug in the hut petrified that the creditors would appropriate the wealth. He too committed the cardinal mistake of not sharing the secret with his wife and carried it to his grave.
The mother and son were not mindful and wakeful enough to be in the present moment and remained prisoners of their past and future.
Two Buddhist monks were once discussing a flag flapping in the wind. While one felt it was the wind moving, the other conjectured it was the flag fluttering. The imbroglio could not be resolved and they sought the intervention of a Zen Master. The master impassively said’ It is the MIND that moves’ neither the flag nor the wind.
Humans need freedom from their past and future in order to be in the present. And being in the NOW or present is true enlightenment and mindfulness.
The past is full of sorrows and regrets while future brims with anxieties and worries and humans are caged in that mind set thereby postponing their happiness quotient.
To appreciate true happiness and joy , human mind should not vacillate between the past and future , but remain in the PRESENT.
A young monk was once travelling in pursuit of happiness and truth. During his travel , he encountered a massive river , which he could not cross. Shortly he saw a senior monk on the other side of the river. To whom he hailed and sought assistance to cross the river to reach the other side. The senior monk pondered and replied ,’ you are already on the other side’.
This fact can be appreciated only when the mind is centered. Breathing techniques like Sudarshan Kriya, Pranayama , Yoga , Meditation and Vipassana all help in dissolving the mind so that it becomes centered.
‘ True happiness is not possible without freedom. We have to learn the habit of being free. We do not allow our past , the future , our projects , or our fear to get hold of us. We are free.Every step is free. Every step is nourishment. Every step is healing. Every step is joy.’ says Thich Nhat Hanh
