The Science of Living

In Uncategorized on February 10, 2011 by Swami Uddipayan

My Pain = Total Pain in the world / No. of living beings + the pain caused by me + the hatred spread by me – My sacrifices – The hurt suffered by me.

My Happiness = Absence of Pain + the happiness spread by me – the hatred spread by me + My sacrifices + The reaction avoided for a hurt caused.

Pain makes a Man think & Thinking makes him wise, Wisdom makes pain endurable.

One can reduce his pain and increase his happiness by

Support Life – Every life supported will ensure that there is an additional being alive to share your share of pain and increase your share of happiness. As life reduces due to global warming the remaining life on planet has to take a greater share of suffering. Just see the surrounding world and observe how much pain is there compared to a few years ago. Water a plant, feed a fish, get a pet, help children to grow. Surround yourselves with life always. Sit at the top of pyramid of life. More life supported by you higher up you are.

Spread Happiness not pain – There is already enough pain in the world one should not add to it by causing some more. Most pain is caused at home to ones own near & dear ones. We should be soft in speech with our children, neighbors, subordinates, colleagues etc. Remember any pain or happiness caused will increase our share.

By sacrificing – A sacrifice can be by giving up some pleasure, giving up a habit, giving up a desire, giving up an asset small or big tangible or intangible etc. Every sacrifice lowers your assets but increases your living energy just as a balloon sheds weight so it can rise higher. When life itself is threatened why do we cling to material processions?

Hurt suffered – Imagine you are a molecule the hurt causer has hurt you. To finance for the hurt caused he has to transfer a couple of electrons. By reacting you may end up transferring back more electrons than you have received, So do not react as the other molecule is already poorer by 2 electrons. How much poor can he get, very soon he will be begging for energy to live.

Hatred Spread – Hatred causes pain to spread and happiness to reduce.

Each one of us is a wave in the ocean of life. Each wave exists as long as other waves exist. Each wave rises as high as other waves rise. Our position is determined by the company of waves in which we live and how much we help our surrounding waves to rise up. We rise or fall in a group.

Remember each one of us is an embodiment of an energy which has a field like that of a magnet. We react to waves of energy (People) around us the way a magnet would do with other magnets. The kind of reaction is a function of our own energy levels and that of the people with whom we are reacting and the background energy level due to the time and place this reaction is happening. Many a person has no control on his emotions like a child crying for a chocolate as soon as it sees one. We are unable to observe the energy flows and blindly react to a situation. If you are feeling like cursing a person it is because of different energy levels existing. The fastest way to equalize is through a swearword. Just hold back and observe the object of the curse and give them some work to do ask for a favor, maybe bring you a cup of coffee, pick up a book, ask to use their cell phone, borrow something etc. You will observe that the person will voluntarily comply because he is trying to equalize by serving you. This is a productive way of equalizing instead of causing a hurt. You can also equalize through Love which is like a long term loan payable at the discretion of the receiver whenever he is able to with no strings attached. Try to be a neutral observer of your emotions and slowly see the play of forces and how unproductive is our choice of response. If only every person engages in a productive exchange we will not see so much of pain in this world.

Your’s With Love,

Swami Uddipayan
