The pathway to lasting Happiness

Moksa – resolution of the individuality of the ‘I’ – liberation from all suffering. Moksa is the final extrication of the soul or consciousness from Samsara –the cycle of life and death.

This liberation is only possible for human beings because the sense of the ‘I’, the individuality that exists. If there is no ‘individuality’ there can be no search for liberation, freedom. In other bodies such as animals there is no conflict, there is no sense of the ‘I individuality’…there can be no search for liberation/freedom. 

This is what distinguishes us from the level of animals. What we have in common with the animal kingdom eating, sleeping, reproduction, survival…. the order of dharma, we alone have the ability to use the faulty of discrimination, viveka

Viveka the ability to discriminate the real from the unreal, the immortal form the mortal, the finite from the infinite, to verify the truth for ourselves.

When I ask you what do you seek in life? There is that indefinable search, desire, to return home, to return within to the source of all, we can call it the search for happiness, for fulfilment, for peace it is all one and the same, it is returning to the Self.
