Only When You Give Up Everything Can You Have Everything

The traditional way of going about acquiring things in our life is by acquiring one at a time. We go to school, university, get a job, get a salary, etc. But do we ever get to a point that we feel we now have it all? No. Even the people who are the richest and have the most material things don’t feel they have it all, or else they won’t keep acquiring more. It doesn’t have to be a material thing. It could be a relationship. But no matter how happy people get in a relationship, they can always get happier. But no matter how many things you can acquire in a lifetime, you can always get more.

But what if there was a way to have it all? By fulfilling desires we are trying to find happiness anyway. What if there was a level of fulfillment where we didn’t actually need anything more to be happy. When you arrive at this level you become detached, and the very fact that you are detached draws things to you. This is hard to explain, but take for instance a single guy who wants a girlfriend. He finds it very difficult to find a girlfriend, but when he finally does, he finds that all the girls wants to be his girlfriend. This is because he now has a girlfriend and he isn’t looking for one anymore.

As soon as you give up your attachment to something you can have it. But how is that done? We all want certain things. We can’t help it. But actually we can. We can give up our desires and find out who we really are, which is the source of all things. Once we know we are the source of all things, acquiring them becomes of secondary importance. Then we can have everything we want, because there is no attachment. That is just the way the universe works. You can have whatever you want as long as you relinquish your attachment to it.

The best way to go about it is to find out who you really are, which takes a lot of honest self-enquiry. You must realize you are not a separate person in body. You are not your mind either. The only way to discover this is to give up all desires and constantly witness your mind. To do this is to be the silent witness. It is to be conscious of consciousness. By doing this you eventually come to know yourself as the Supreme Reality. This reality is efficient upon itself. It doesn’t have to add anything to itself to be happy, because it already contains everything.
