at least we have hope that we may achieve tomorrow. We can postpone our hope. We can have hope and we can live with that hope. But depression of success proves and makes us utterly understand the truth which straightly leads us to truth. As long as we have hope, it acts as a buffer for us. We don’t feel the truth directly. But the moment the hope is removed, the moment we start facing the reality, the moment we start experiencing the truth without the buffer, truth hurts. It is too much. We are left in a deep depression. We have nothing else to achieve. We have nowhere to go. Deep hopelessness descends on you. From this point three roads are available to us. This is the point from where we can take one of these three roads. One is drugs which majority of the people decide. When you reach the depression of success, you are successful but we have not achieved what we really wanted to feel. We achieved what we wanted to achieve but we did not achieve what for we wanted to achieve. then the depression leads you in a place from where three roads are taking. one is drugs. Drugs means, I not only mean alchohol or marijuana. Even food addiction is an addiction. Any addiction is addiction. At least with drugs we know we are doing something wrong. But with food addiction and obesity we don’t even know we are doing something wrong. Even obesity is because of depression of success. The countries which achieve the depression of success are obese. Because they achieved what they wanted to achieve in lifestyle but they have not achieved the life itself. Life is sold for the sake of purchasing the lifestyle. We sell our eyes to purchase painting. We sell our tongue to purchase food. We sell our legs to pay for dance class. Lifestyle is achieved but not the core of life itself. In the rat race.. There is a beautiful saying “Biggest problem in the rat race even if you win, you are a rat”. Even if we win we are a rat. So, you continuously, to prove your ego, run, run and run and finally you feel like a fool. I have seen the people, who continuosly run When you start to achieve something, you run. The moment you achieve it, you suddenly feel the desire has disappeared. I have seen many people coming and telling me “when I wanted to get a car I thought the moment I get the car, my life will be haven Swamiji, nothing else is necessary. But now I feel nothing much has changed. Nothing is happening. The moment we achieve, we understand the whole thing is just our own imagination, our own feeling, our own thing. One more thing, the moment we achieve we realize we have paid too much for our desire. There was no such deep desire, but we wasted so much of our time and energy in fulfilling that one desire. So, the moment we run behind the lifestyle. One more thing, as long as we run behind the lifestyle, we can see continuously we are under pressure, under stress, under torture. We are jumping from here to there, there to here, this way and that way. We have no time to enjoy, rest and live it. Ultimately a deep discontentment. That is the ultimate result of life. That is the seventh plane, the seventh emotion. If we are based on the lifestyle, deep discontentment is the result which we will come to know in the end. A beautiful story of a king called Yayadi from Mahabharata. This king said to be a man of greed, had all sorts of pleasure and enjoyed it for hundred years. When the death came, he is not ready to die. He says “no, no please give me just one hundred more years”. Death said “No you already lived for hundred years.” He asked “please do something.” Death said “Alright, if any of your sons are ready to give their life, then I will extend your time.” One of sons agreed to give his life and the king’s life was extended one hundred years more. Again after hundred years death came to him and he said “No no, I don’t know how these hundred years passed, please don’t come so quickly.” Death said “Alright one more extension, you are a big king.” Again the third time death came and this time death said “this time no extension is possible”. But somehow the king got recommendation of some god and the recommendation worked out and the death allowed one more extension. Same way it continued for ten times. Ten times for hundred years each time. After the tenth time yama says beautifully to the king “you are pouring ghee to put the fire off”. Can we ever achieve that? Can we quench our discontentment by putting more sensory pleasures, increasing our lifestyle? The king suddenly had a glimpse of realization. Sattori – the first glimpse of realization and he realizes “yes, why I forgot to look back. Now I understand how much ever ghee I pour, the fire never be quenched by that ghee. So, how much ever lifestyle I may have I can never be satisfied. So, lifestyle can never fulfill the life itself and the quantity, the number of years can never make us feel fulfilled. Only the quality of life can make us fulfilled. Don’t add years to life, add life to years. If we are in the mission of adding years to our life, we will never end. We will end only in discontentment. If we are in the mission of adding life to our years. Be more aware when I say add life to years. I say three things – live in the present moment, have more awareness and be totally conscious. When I say awareness I am speaking about the outer world. When I say conscious I am speaking about the inner changes. Live in the present moment. Have deep awareness about what is happening in the world around you and have deep consciousness about what is happening inside. These three will give us the glimpse of what I say life or energy or experience or Samadhi. So, if our life is more based on the being, on the consciouness, we can see we will achieve a tremendous satisfaction and tremendous feeling of fulfillment happens to us.
