Happiness is when what you think what you say and what you do are in harmony
Mahatma Gandhi Quote
Describing the road to Nirvana Mahatma Gandhi nails it by explaining the common ground of contentment between the mind, body and soul with a quote about how happiness derives from harmony in your head.
If the great man himself were to explain this quote he would probably describe a person aligning the conscious mind with the real world persona of the individual.
It is all about finding the common ground of balance and contentment between the mind, the body and the soul, it is a quote meaning that thinking, saying and doing must be in synch to achieve true happiness.
One of the first advocates of non violent pacifism Mahatma Gandhi is still revered today and his quotes still live on to inspire new generations.
This quote is profoundly sound advice but, how many of us can honestly say our lives allow us to adhere to this value?
In modern society achieving the latter two; What you say and What you do are achievable by the majority, however it is the "What you think" that does not always conform with the general consensus or herd mentality of thinking.
The silent majority are the ones who outwardly conform but inwardly conceal their thoughts for fear of ostracisation or worse being locked up.
Contentment and happiness can be found in many forms even in ignorance and if they are happy like that why should they be disturbed?
One mans meat may be another mans poison and generally people are very tolerant of opposing views as long as they do not intrude into their lifestyle.
Achieving the consistency of alignment of mind with your actual physical actions gives you a balanced life where you truly believe what you think and you are not afraid to show your thoughts by saying them and following up by actually doing them.
Put simply and purely it is: Happiness is when what you think what you say and what you do are in harmony, and I'm sure we would get a distinctive nod of approval from the great Mahatma Gandhi himself.
