Joy & Happiness
Thank you for the privilege to talk about my favorite topic, “JOY” or “JOY FROM DEEP WITHIN”. It is also the title of my second book in the series of books, Informational Nature of Being. We are all incorrigible seekers of bliss or joy. Our minds are wired to be happy. At least that is what our modern scientific studies contend. How many of you believe that? May be with exception of a few most us struggle to be happy and keep that feeling of joy most of the time. What has gone wrong?
Many studies reveal religious or spiritual people are happier. Many studies show married people are happier. Many of us believe that childhood is the stage of most happiness. Many of us think that we could be happier if we could be more rich or good looking—handsome, beautiful, or successful or smart.
One thing is sure that feeling joy is important to all of us. Why is that so? You would think the answer should be clear and precise, but it is not. I will get back to this later but let me ask you, “Who is it that needs to be happy?” Of course, since we are talking about “our” happiness, you may say that it is your self or “I” that needs to be happy. So “Who is this self or I that needs to be happy?
You may say, “I or me” with your name, titles, education, place in the society with certain face, body, the one I can see in the mirror. Great! Then that voice inside you may say, “I think I know that this is not all I am, maybe there is more to myself than my physical self.”
Who is doing the thinking? Who is it that is doing the act of understanding or doubting? Maybe there is a little “I” within my physical body that I cannot see in the mirror. Is this the one which needs to be happy? Has science found any such entity called inner I?
Where does this inner “I” reside? Could it be any organ in my body or a cell or a molecule or may be an atom that is part of my being? Or perhaps a combination of many atoms or molecules or cells or maybe organs that represent this inner “I”? I can tell you that despite of incredible efforts, the science still has not been able to find that physical material entity called “inner self”. So what is the true nature of this self? The new science of quantum information, on the other hand, has a lot to say about this entity. In this new model, as I described in the first books of this series, Road to Digital Divine, our universe emerges as one informational entity or a grand cosmic mind or digital divine where all entities are reducible to entangled quantum or binary bits that are instantaneously connected to one another.
And not only the inner self but also the physical self that we see in the mirror are all informational entities and are all digitally or informationally connected to this grand entity. So what does that mean? It means that laws of information rather than the laws of classical physics govern the behavior and nature of this entity. Accordingly, the informational self has two basic natures.
First, it leads to tendencies of “I, mine, or my.” It arises when self computes in binary mode. It gives rise to ego. We know ego well. It is well recognizable human personality trait in our modern societies. Here my self-interests become more important than others interests.
Second, “us, ours, and we” emphasizes the nature of this self that is for others. It arises from self computing in quantum mode. All sense of love, empathy, oneness or unity consciousness arises from this foundation. I describe this as our quantum self. It acts for the benefit of community rather than self. It gives rise to saint like nature in humans.
With two selves of different nature in one body, humans have learnt the meaning of the word “suffering”. Which of the self is my true nature? The knowledge of this truth is not trivial, and in fact, it is nothing short of enlightenment. Once understood mentally and experientially, it has potential to fill us with the incredible joy emanating from deep within.
