Conflict implies comparison. Can one live without comparison? - which means no ideal, no authority of a pattern, no conformity to a particular ideology. It implies freedom from the prison of ideas so that there is no comparison, no imitation, no conformity; therefore you are stuck with "what is" .

Comparison comes only when you compare "what is" with "what should be", or "what might be", or try to transform "what is" into something which it is not and all this implies conflict.

Lord Sri Krishna said to Arjuna...
Four types of virtuous men worship Me, O Arjuna :
The man of distress, the man seeking knowledge, the man seeking wealth and the man imbued with wisdom.
Of these, the wise man, ever steadfast and devoted to the One, excels; for supremely dear am I to the wise and he is dear to me.

The vital moments of silence that we reach in our meditation are the eternal islands of Truth among the endless billows of life's activities, struggles, temptation and desires. We are not accustomed to this inward silence.

We are self exciled from our own real nature of peace and serenity. We know not how to delve into this silent existence, vital and vibrant and translate it into a way of living, at one divine and omnipotent.

Ecstasy is our very nature, not to be ecstatic is simply unnecessary. To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous. It needs no effort to be ecstatic, it needs great effort to be miserable. That's why you look so tired, because misery is real hard work; to maintain it is really difficult, because you are doing something against the nature. You are going upstream - that's what misery is.
