Knowledge reveals the real abiding place of Happiness. Those who have cognized the presence of Suffering in Life & are desirous of removing it permanently search for an answer in Knowledge. They do not expect Happiness to be found in any worldly manner, such as in sensory things or in the moods & emotions of a wavering Mind.
Spiritual aspirants, who desire to be free of desire, are not content with mere accidental respites from the Suffering caused by Ignorance. They are in search of spiritual Bliss & Peace & are desirous of understanding how it is that Happiness shines forth at times. They yearn to have it abide knowingly & permanently & they understand that the way to accomplish this permanent remaining in Happiness is by Knowledge.
They understand that the way is not by any other means. They then should determine with certainty the source of Happiness. Ascertaining the unitary motivation in life, one becomes free of the idea of multiple motives taking one in multiple directions.
Accomplishing this, one concentrates the searching of one’s mind in the direction that is truly “within”. This prompts a yearning for Self-Knowledge & provides the motivation for the Self-Inquiry into the Self. The determination about Happiness is an inquiry into Bliss that leads one into an inquiry into Existence-Consciousness, because Existence-Consciousness-Bliss is the nature of the one Reality, the one Self.
