How to Be Happy in Your Life

Saturday, December 13, 2008

The following is an excerpt of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech.

Most people do not know their purpose in life. What is meant by 'living a dog's life'? Animals eat, drink, pass urine and sleep to wake up. Animals do not have a religion because animals do not have a celestial purpose.

Religions are for those who wished for luxuries of the paradise in the Primordial Time*. Those who wished for the luxuries of the world in the Primordial Time do not need a religion. Religions were corrupted when world-loving souls entered them; money-oriented people, money-worshippers and temporal comfort-seekers polluted the religions with their filthy mentality.

To live without a purpose is to live like an animal and you do not know what is written in your destiny.

I travel far and wide. When we travel within the United States of America, we travel a lot. Sometimes, we miss an important exit and we continue to drive on because we cannot stop on the highway. When you are driving in the wrong direction and you know that it is wrong, you develop uneasiness. That is what happens with people who have a purpose in their life but they are not moving towards their goal. Hence, they become depressed and uneasy. You must know what your destiny is. When you go in the opposite direction to what your goal is, you are not happy with yourself. You need to be happy with yourself to live happily. You need to know where your happiness lies.

How to Test Your Destiny

His Divine Eminence Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi often says, 'Come to me. Take Izn-e-Dhikr Qalb (Invocation of the Heart) and test your destiny. If invocation of the name of God starts in your heart, then God is your destiny.' This is how you find out your destiny. Take Invocation of the Heart from the image of HDE Gohar Shahi on the Moon and test your fate!

After the invocation starts in your heart, your destiny is God. You can be happy only in finding God. If you still seek worldly pleasures, comforts and luxuries after the invocation starts in your heart, then you become depressed, uneasy and frustrated. If you want to be happy with your inner man, coordinate your efforts in accordance with your destiny.

After the invocation of 'Ra Riaz' has started in your soul, Riaz al Jannah is your destiny. You shall be happy in seeking to go there. [After invocation of 'Ra Riaz' starts in your soul,] the Satan may whisper in your heart, 'Your wife and kids are alone and in trouble.' You need to understand that you are not the provider; the provider is HDE Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. Those who help Lord's mission, the Lord helps them from mysterious resources. HDE Gohar Shahi's help is undisturbed and uncalculated.

Types of Seekers

There are three types of seekers:

  • Dunya Dar (A worldly person)
  • Tarak al Dunya (From whose heart love for the world has exited)
  • Farigh al Dunya (One who is done with the world; from whose heart the world has completely exited)

All people, religious or non-religious, who don't possess Invocation of the Heart, fall in the category of Dunya Dar. When Invocation of the Heart has started, the world is removed from the heart. You still live in the same atmosphere, but you are known as Tarak al Dunya. One who possesses Invocation of the Heart is known as Tarak al Dunya. God's name, when it enters the heart makes man a Tarak al Dunya. When God enters the heart, one becomes Farigh al Dunya.

*A comprehensive explanation of 'Primordial Time' can be found in The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi.
