Finding BLISS in SERVICE. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
When there's Love, there's Service.
One automatically becomes the servant of their Lover. It's not a service done for formalities, it's performed out of Love.
Taking care of the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs of our loved ones becomes an obligatory duty. It's a Responsibility for every heart that loves, to Satisfy and Please the one it loves.
But we see, even after doing everything, loving someone till our last breath, we see that, they are still not satisfied.
Father is busy serving his family, Man is busy serving his Wife and vice versa, Soldier is busy serving his Nation, Social Workers are busy serving the Society, but their efforts are very much in vain.
Today, no one will be happy with whatever we do for them. No matter how much you try to please them, their happiness is short termed.
After sacrificing and losing so much, working day and night for everyone, with all our blood, sweat and tears, at last they say, “What have you done for us?”
And that's when we come to know that even our own happiness was temporary. It doesn't matter if our love was pure and unconditional, it won't be valued in this world. Our hearts will certainly shatter.
Only and only God knows the true value of your love, your tears and your affection.
Krishna is the epitome of Love. Devotional Service rendered to Him out of pure love is just for pleasing and satisfying Him.
And when Krishna is satisfied, then everyone is satisfied.
Just like if the Father, the head of the family, is satisfied and happy, the whole family, old - young, wife - daughter - son, everyone will be happy.
Krishna is our Father. He is satisfied even by a single leaf, a drop of water, a small fruit or a little flower offered to Him, requisite that it is done with love. (This He confirms Himself in the Bhagvad Gita 9.26)
And when we serve Him in this way, we would automatically become Happy and attain the state of Pure Bliss. This is the only way to attain the much needed Spiritual Bliss that all our souls are craving for.
When we feel Bliss, we will feel Love. When we feel Love, we will automatically feel Bliss.
This is the only way to become Happy in this world.
To get free from problems and anxiety, we all have to take shelter to Hari.
This is the only way to please everyone, to satisfy everyone.
So, to make the world happy, satisfied and peaceful, we must do our best to please the Lord.
May the blessings of Govinda be upon everyone who reads this.
When I was a child, I used to watch Barbie movies. One of those was 'Barbie and the Princess Charm School'. Also, I had a special attraction to Rosetta, one of Tinker Bell Series Fairies and wanted to become such a fairy. In the movie of Charm School, each Princess was assisted by a personal Fairy Assistant, who follows her and serves her. She arranges her make up, hair etc. I have attached a little image of the main Princess with her Fairy Assistant. I wish to be such a fairy for my Lakshmi Ma!!! Hence, I made a little drawing depicting this dream, I am the fairy in Ma Lakshmi's hand! (I know am not good at drawing but I had to draw this)❤❤❤ Well why, would I child prefer to be a Doctor/Engineer/Lawyer, when she can be the Fairy of her Mother!!!

A rich man named 'Alfrando' had two sons. He was very fond of his property. His sons grew with everything, all available to them whenever they desired. However, his wife was a lady who grew in a spiritual family. She would always give her sons spiritual knowledge. She would teach them the value of having everthing in life, whether it's money, power, rewards or even grief and failures. So the sons grew rich in a rich family with rich moral.
While the elder son was about 8 years old, Alfrando died. The whole family was shattered, from a family which had everything to come their home as it arrived in market to a family sharing share chapattis just to fill the stomatch. But the mother did not break. She believed in God and his divinity. She had a strong will that everything will be normal soon. The elder son completed his schooling with money his father had earned and started earning for the family. But one ill day while driving back home, he met an accident and died. Again a big thunder hit the family. This cheerful family of four was now a family of two. Everyone pittied on the lady and her son for having bad fortune. However, the mother did not break neither did she cursed God for being ruthless to her.
After the funeral was over, she and her 14 year old son were standing in their brenda under the black sky but bright stars. The mother said to her child," Son can you see there are uncountable stars in the sky. They always appear whether it's our good night or a gloomy one. Do you know why they do so? So that when the life is good we can admire them and thank them for what we have. And when the time is bad, we can still thank them for what we had."
She added," Never think you are alone my son, your dad and you brother have become angel now. They are with you all the time. And you can call them for anything and everything, they'll help you." The son listened her words carefully but did not uttered a word.
Days passed, both of them worked hard believing in God. Life was somewhat normal in 3 years, when the boy met a monk in his high school. He was captivated by them and desired to learn from them, to find the answers of his unasked questions. He was doing graduation and alongside he started reading spiritual books. Once, he met a sadhuji. He asked him some of the questions which were disturbing him since childhood. Sadhuji said," Son the answers are all within you. Go search them from your within." The boy got even more confused. He then heard about meditation from one of his friends who went to attend art of living sessions. He started searching about them and was so desperate and had never giving up spirit. He participated in an article writing contest, the topic was "Nature"... He wrote spiritual contents and ended with the words his mother had said. He won the competition, but the winning was not all. His article was selected to be published in a magazine. It got popular to extreme extent. He then was asked by another magazine to write another such article for them. This was the turning point of his life.
Now 12 years have passed since he wrote that article. The son has become one of best selling author, an activist, an spiritual speaker and motivator, and a novelist. His novel named "Alfrando and family" in which he delicately described his whole life story and was sold in billions also was translated in several different languages. He also donated good amount to charities. His mother was a member of an NGO to help people who have suffered big losses in their lives.
MORAL: Life is difficult to live. If you've come to this world you will encounter problem. But it is upto you how you want to live. (Mother and the son would have got devastated. But they saw life as challenging putting faith in God, devoted what they had in service. They are respected and will be adored for ages for their great work.)
