Book Review : Joy 24×7

This book captures some of the philosophical sayings of Sadhguru, founder of the Isha foundation, on abstract and elusive themes of happiness and success. In order to review this book, it would only be apt to quote few passages I liked the most :)

Miserable people have  passed off as intelligent people in the world, because they have miserable questions and complications in their minds

One of the main reasons why you have become miserable is, instead of falling back into your Joy, you are trying to pursue Joy

First you must have an existence and then being joyful arises.Right now, you’re just a reflection of the society in which you live, there’s no such thing as you in this.Only an individual can know Joy

All the time, your one and only problem and the very basis of your misery is that life is not happening the way you think it should be happening

Greed is very relative.In your perception, you are never greedy.Somebody else who has reached a place where you aspire to get is greedy.

When people are joyful, they must look at life with great depth; but when they are happy, they live frivolously.Something has to go dead wrong in their life for them to look deeper.

If you are a truly joyful person, no exploitation can ever touch you. Only a miserable person is constantly thinking as to who will exploit them

Thinking about something is not worrying, you better think about things clearly; but going on thinking about the same thing is worry

Joy will not happen if you change the Content of your life; it will only happen if you change the Context of your life.

Amen :)
