What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.”

FRUSTRATION versus HAPPINESS
HOW to CREATE HAPPINESS WITHIN?
“The chief element of happiness is this: to want to be what you are.”
"Be a light unto yourself"
-Siddartha Gautama Buddha-
"Happiness doesn´t reside in the possession of gold,
the feeling of happiness resides alone in the soul. "
-Demokrit (460-370 BC), Greek philosopher-
"Happiness and joy of life follows a man who acts according to his dharma.
To act according to his dharma,
is the highest form of intelligence a person is capable of.
Dharma is the manifestation of the least resistance in everything one does,
but dharma is never the avoidance of effort or action."
-Peter Peer Rohr-
The ULTIMATE PATH to HAPPINESS
"If you don´t run your own destiny, someone else will.”
"A life that is either under the control of another person
or under the control of an external influence (society, natural constant)
is destined to suffer and destined to misfortune.
He should take pains to avoid any activity under another person´s control,
but he should take pains to engage in any activity under his own control.
Only a life that is under the control of one's own self,
will have a chance to experience happiness and fulfilment.”
The ULTIMATE KEY to HAPPINESS
"Again, you have the idea that only certain people
hold the key to the Kingdom of Happiness. No one holds it.
No one has the authority to hold that key.
That key is your own self, and in the development and the purification
and in the incorruptibility of that Self alone is the Kingdom of Eternity....
You have been accustomed of being told
how far you have advanced, what is your spiritual status.
Who but yourself can tell you if you are incorruptible?"
"You know, if we understand one question rightly, all questions are answered.
But we don't know how to ask the right question.
To ask the right question demands a great deal of intelligence and sensitivity.
Here is a question, a fundamental question: is life a torture?
It is, as it is; and man has lived in this torture centuries upon centuries,
from ancient history to the present day, in agony, in despair,
in sorrow; and he doesn't find a way out of it.
Therefore, he invents gods, churches, all the rituals,
and all that nonsense, or he escapes in different ways.
What we are trying to do, during all these discussions and talks here,
is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind,
not accept things as they are, nor revolt against them.
Revolt doesn't answer a thing. You must understand it, go into it,
examine it, give your heart and your mind, with everything that you have,
to find out a way of living differently.
That depends on you, and not on someone else,
because in this there is no teacher, no pupil; there is no leader;
there is no guru; there is no Master, no Saviour.
You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the Master; you are the guru;
you are the leader; you are everything.
And to understand is to transform what is."
HOW to CREATE a HAPPY BODY?
"Happiness is not a matter of intensity
but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony.”
"He whose doshas are in balance and functioning normally,
whose appetite is good, and whose elimination functions are normal (mala)
... whose body, mind, and senses remain full of bliss, is called a healthy person."
HOW to CREATE a HAPPY SOCIETY?
"To be wealthy and honoured in an unjust society is a disgrace.”
"To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order;
to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order;
to put the family in order; we must first cultivate our personal life;
we must first set our hearts right.”
How to CREATE a HAPPY and SANE WORLD?
"I doubt if a single individual could be found from the whole of mankind
free from some form of insanity. The only difference is one of degree.”
"Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world.
The Sun is simply bright. It does not correct anyone.
Because it shines, the whole world is full of light.
Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world.
Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”
HOW to EXPERIENCE AUTHENTIC LOVE?
"We are here to learn to endure the beams of love.”
"Love is not the basis of happiness.
Happiness is the basis of love.”
-Peter Peer Rohr-
HOW to change a LIFE of SUFFERING

The SECRET of FULFILMENT of DESIRE
"The Law of attraction follows the affinity principle:
You don´t attract what you want.
You always attract what and who you are.”
-Peter Peer Rohr-
"Indecisiveness towards the goals of life we choose
and the lack of perseverance are the main causes of all our misfortune!"
-Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719), English diplomat, scholar and essayist-
HOW can I MAKE MY own SOUL HAPPY?
"The solution is not in outside things
but in the very core of our soul."
-Theresia von Lesieux-
"What is the need of the soul?
That we deny our own soul to participate in the evolutionary process.
The soul is locked in the prison of the body.
Since the soul (para-jiva) is an inseparable part of the paramatman,
the soul is the source of all power and all knowledge,
its nature is absolute bliss and infinite energy.
Through para processing and para-kaivalya
the soul can liberate itself from bondage.
Once the soul releases itself from its body prison,
she will dance with joy celebrating her liberation.
Para processing and para-kaivalya are the saviours of the soul."
-Peter Peer Rohr-
"There is no friend bigger than your own soul.
No specific culture, religion or way of life
is particularly conducive to the realization of the dharma of the soul.
Neither turning away from the world nor exercising
spiritual techniques and religious rituals have some meaning.
Alone the direct connection with the paramatman and
the authentic communication with the soul empowers the soul,
to recognize itself, to develop its potential,
and to fulfil its own destination."
-Peter Peer Rohr-
HOW do I BECOME the CREATOR of my own DESTINY?
LIBERATION from false GODS (natural constants)
"The gods have abandoned us.
Now we take care of our own happiness.”
-Roman centurion, Quintus Dias-
"The fool always looks
for happiness in any situation.
The wise looks for the learning lesson of any situation."
-Peter Peer Rohr-
HOW to use the WONDER-SOFTWARE?
There is a feeling we all know - a mixture of surprise and delight, caused by perceiving something marvellous. And we want to stay there, drink it in, and know even more. It’s called wonder-feeling, where all aspects of our body respond and go in tune. We either fall spontaneously into a very deep relaxing state of soothing meditation or we start dancing, or our hair stands on end, tears come, or we laugh endlessly.
The Tantra-system of para-adbutha-shakti (the sense of wonder) is one of the most basic and essential ways of keeping life in an ever-joyful, self-rejuvenating and self-refreshing mode of existence. All our senses open to welcome the most basic feeling of magic: the waves of self-awarness!
"The art of being a warrior is to balance the wonder and the terror of being alive.”
The Sanskrit word for wonder is adbhuta (extraordinary, super-natural, wonderful, marvellous, surprise). Adbhuta is the most natural and unconditional gift of the paramatman, where we are touched by the most intrinsic magic of life. We dissolve in wonder. The mind goes silent in awe.
Adbhuta shakti is open for all paramatman-souls for the transcendental nectar adbhuta transcends time and space. When our senses cease to function, and our mind meets the essence of the paramatman, all our doubts, fears and trauma dissolve in wonder.
"Bliss is the cessation of all thoughts and evaluations."
The tantra of wonder (vijnana bhairava tantra) is generating everywhere the aroma of adbhuta shakti. The yantra-tantra-mantra-vibration awakens the experience of delight, wonder and astonishment. It begins with para-devi, the Goddess, wondering about the path to union with her Beloved, shiva, to reach in para-kundalini-shiva-ratri-shakti-brahman the state of complete fulfilment.
One day the Goddess sang to her lover, Bhairava:
Beloved and radiant Lord of the space before birth,
Revealer of essence,
Slayer of the ignorance that binds us,
You, who in play have created this universe
And permeated all forms in it with never-ending truth.
I have been wondering. . .
I have been listening to the hymns of creation,
Enchanted by the verses,
Yet still I am curious.
What is this delight-filled universe?
Into which we find ourselves born?
What is this mysterious awareness shimmering
Everywhere within it?
I have been listening to the love songs of
Form longing for formless.
What are these energies undulating through our bodies?
Pulsing us into action?
And this “matter” out of which our forms are made–
What are these dancing particles of condensed radiance?
Devi, the Goddess who is the energy of life, the energy of creation, is placing herself in the position of a student, a yogi, and asking Shiva to teach her. She opens herself up in wonder, and then the teachings flow. In so doing, Devi is giving us the first learning lesson: begin with wonder.
There is also a technique – the word Devi uses is saṃśayaḥ or samshaya, and its first meaning is “lying down to rest or to enter in a very soft way the realm of the paramatman,” and it also means “release the resistance against the revelation.” The implication is that Devi is saying, “When I think about all the divisions of consciousness and all the mantras, I just want to lie down and enter into the revealing wisdom of my own consciousness.”
-Shantam shivam advaitam chaturtham manyate, sa atma, sa vigyeyah-
"That eternal peaceful state, which is always auspicious, free from duality,
and which the wise describe as the most blissful state of consciousness,
that is the Self, that is to be known thoroughly, scientifically."
-Mandukya Upanishad 1.7-
"For the warrior there is neither victory nor defeat.
The warrior seeks the perfection of his Self. "
