There is a common saying that “Swarg Dekhna ho toh khud ko marna padta hai”. The plain meaning that reflects from this idiom is that “To see the heaven, we need to die ourselves”. However, when we tend to look things from our plain eyes, there is always a high probability of us missing out on some hidden treasures. As far as, this idiom is concerned, let me tell you that it’s a jackpot waiting to be unleashed by each one of us. So, in this blog, let’s try to dig into the hidden treasure, and eventually, hit the jackpot.
It won’t be wrong on my part, to say that the above-mentioned idiom sums up the philosophy of our life. If one understands, as well as, applies this beautiful idiom in their life, then trust me there is no looking back. That single line comes up with the solution to all our problems. It’s a breather to all those tensed souls out there, who are too much engrossed in the super paced rat race. All in all, it truly shows the path to heaven.
The idiom above, at first, refers “to see the heaven”. Now, what is the first thought that comes to your mind, whenever you think about heaven? Doesn’t it portray a picture of a place which occupies happiness and merely happiness, all around? What do you think heaven stands for, in the above phrase? As per my views, “Heaven signifies an epitome of happiness”. Heaven is a reservoir of happiness, and, in fact, to see the heaven i.e. to achieve the happiness is the utmost motive of all living beings. Aren’t all our efforts directed towards the goal of achieving happiness i.e. experiencing the heaven? So, we can rightly say that heaven here denotes Happiness or, as a matter of fact, “Heavenly Happiness”.
The idiom further mentions that “we need to die ourselves’. In simple terms, it means that people can get/experience/see heaven only when they die themselves and no else on their behalf can make them experience heaven. But, does it literally points to the actual death of a living being, wherein the soul departs from the body? No, it does not merely refer to the actual death of a living being. Rather, if we try to dissect the hidden meaning in those words, we will realize that it actually talks about leaving our outer world and embracing our inner self, for seeking happiness. It means that we need to keep our inner self unaffected by the outer world, in order to, achieve the heavenly happiness. Let me make it very clear, that it doesn’t mean to leave the physical world and live at a secluded place for achieving happiness. However, it does mean that we should be independent of our outer world if at all we want to achieve the “Heavenly Happiness”.
If we simply look around, then we will realize that each one of us is insanely running around to achieve the heaven/happiness, in our life. But, we all need to ask ourselves that whatever we think happiness is, in actual term a real happiness at all, or is it, just a material thing that we are wishing for? Will this path lead to Heaven? Are we on the right track? Because, if it’s not a real happiness, then mind it, whatever we realize after travelling on that path and achieving that materialistic thing, will be merely an accomplishment and not the real happiness.
Now the next question that pops up in our mind is where will this so-called heavenly happiness be available? Will it be available in our home, with our loved ones, at the nearby shopping mall, our office, on a fun-filled outing or at any other such place?
Well, the answer to the above question is quite simple. Where else could we find the Heavenly Happiness, but in our inner self? Heaven lies within us. “To experience the heaven we need to Have-In the happiness”. Happiness is an attitude and is independent of the outer world. It doesn’t matter whether we are able to accomplish something or we are not successful in our attempt. All these material things won’t affect us for long, as and when, we realize that “Happiness is all within us”. Nothing in this outer world can deflect us from being happy if our inner self decides to be happy in that very moment. At the same time, no one else can make us happy, until and unless our inner self decides to be happy.
I think that now all of us very well know where the Heavenly Happiness lies and how to achieve it, right? I do wish that all of us are able to reap the benefit of the phrase, “To see the heaven, we need to die ourselves”, by understanding its real sense, as well as, applying it in our life. Do remember that “In order to achieve heavenly happiness, we need to Have-In the happiness”.
I wish that all of you stay happy forever. God bless you all.
