SYNOPSIS: The earthly comfort of the world will at last depreciate. But the divine ecstasy which is in the devotion of GOD will keep on increasing day by day. READ THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW -

All the comfort of the world will, at last, depreciate like the sensual pleasure and the pleasure of money will depreciate at last.

For example, the sensual pleasure which a man used to get at an age of 22 will not be there at the age of 65. The pleasure of money for a rich person will depreciate at last after he has used the money to fulfill all his requirements. How much he will buy from money, how much he will tour, how many times he will visit overseas – at last the pleasure of money will depreciate. The pleasure of health will also depreciate at the onset of old age. The pleasure of family life will also vanish when the children will grow old as they will go away to lead their independent life. The daughter will go to her in-law's house and the son upon getting married will have his own family. The elder of the family will become singular and thus the pleasure of the family gets diminished. Earlier he was the head of the family and his decisions were final. Now his children have taken the front seat and their decision becomes foremost.

In a nutshell, all types of happiness will diminish at the end. This is an eternal principle. All the earthly comforts are bound to depreciate at last.

Now let us talk of the divine ecstasy which increases day by day. This divine ecstasy is called devotion. The first thing to consider here is that devotion is the name of ecstasy and not happiness. Happiness is the first stair of ecstasy and ecstasy is the highest pedestal of happiness. In the world, we can find happiness but we cannot find ecstasy because ecstasy is not there at all in the world.

A saint narrated a very interesting tale. He said that when GOD installed the earth (Prithvi Mata) over water then He raised His Divine Lotus Feet and from there fame, happiness, grandeur, splendor went to the earth. But one thing did not leave GOD’s Divine Lotus Feet. It remained stuck in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. GODDESS who was in service of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD watched carefully and came to know that ecstasy did not leave the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and remained stuck there. Therefore we will never ever find ecstasy anywhere in the world.

To get ecstasy the only means is the devotion of GOD. With devotion, the ecstasy increases day by day. The ecstasy which the devotee used to get at the age of 22 increases many folds upon matureness of devotion at the age of 45 and it will increase many more times at the age of 65 when ecstasy will reach its pinnacle. Near to his final stage, the devotion will still continue to provide ecstasy.

The principle is clear that all the happiness of the world gets diminished and only the ecstasy of devotion increases day by day.

Therefore we must forgo the earthly comfort of the world and must get involved in GOD’s devotion which has the capability to provide ecstasy till the end.

But humans are generally engaged in worldly comfort and till last, they remain engaged in it. At last, their happiness diminishes and they lose the battle of their life.

We must associate ourselves with GOD through devotion so that we can experience the ecstasy which is hidden in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. The more our head will bow at the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD due to devotion, the more we will start receiving ecstasy from there.

Once we have tasted ecstasy, we will lose the urge to run after earthly happiness. One who has tasted sweet mango will not taste tart Neem (Azadirachta indica). Similar will be our state, when we would have experienced divine ecstasy due to devotion we will then lose the urge for earthly happiness.

We must do our homework for older age. We must think that do we want the decreased quantity of earthly happiness or an increased dose of divine ecstasy. Like we employ our wealth in such a way that we get an increased amount in our old age, similarly, we must invest our time in devotion so that it will give us an increased dose of divine ecstasy in our older age.

We need to take the devotional path at a young age so that we can experience ecstasy and that ecstasy keeps increasing day by day and till our older age, it reaches its pinnacle.
