Michael James,

 Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi (1879 - 1950) taught us that infinite and eternal happiness is our own real nature, and that the reason we are not aware of ourself as such is that we now mistake ourself to be a finite person consisting of body, life, mind, intellect and will, which is not what we actually are. Therefore in order to know and to be the perfect happiness that we always actually are, it is necessary for us to be aware of ourself as we actually are, and the means for this is for us to investigate ourself and thereby surrender the false ‘self’ (namely ego) that we now seem to be.
