Free from Thoughts

peace

I have heard it say that, if I silence the mind of all thoughts then I will experience peace of mind.

From nature we understand that one seed gives fruit from which many more seeds will be produced – and so it is with thoughts – one thought gives rise to many other thoughts which then go on to result in many feelings, words, actions and reactions. Perhaps then if I am able to focus on the mind, and ensure it remains quiet, then I will remain stable, detached and in control – mentally, emotionally and physically at peace.

However, thoughts, like seeds produce fruit. Without thoughts it is not possible to get a return. If I plant positive, peaceful and empowering thoughts then the fruit that I will experience within my life will also reflect that. So peace can be experienced through the practice of creating peaceful thoughts within the mind and not as a result of no thoughts – which in fact yield no return.

Let me not try and control my mind but instead learn to transform my negative, critical and wasteful thoughts into positive and peaceful thought so that then what manifests in my life also reflects the same.

A Positive Mind

quality_thoughts

I choose to slow down and focus in on the thoughts that my mind is generating.

I become the observer and the analyst.

I take a conscious decision to not give energy to thoughts that are wasteful or negative. Whether I choose to see the thoughts themselves as right or wrong, whether they are justified or not, is not as important as acknowledging the ill feelings, discomfort that they bring about within the self and others.

No matter how comfortable I may experience these thoughts to be, I recognise that, for example, thoughts of a critical, judgemental or presumptive nature are like drops of poison that will seek and destroy all that is positive within me instantly or gradually – depending on the strength of the wasteful or negative thoughts. What is certain is that these types of thoughts will be destructive and will go on to finish my enthusiasm and close the door to opportunities.

Let me choose to develop the habit of consciously having positive and powerful thoughts.

 

Om Shanti

The Magnet

InheritenceThe relationship with the Supreme is often likened to a magnet. His power is such that it can draw and connect souls to Him easily. Just as a needle is drawn and connected to the magnet without effort.

However for this to happen the soul must be clean and free from rust. If rust has developed on the soul then no matter how powerful the magnet it will not be able to pull the soul. The connection will not happen.

The rust that develops on the soul, over time, begins when it starts to identify itself with the body. When body consciousness develops, the soul, starts to use the vices such as greed, attachment and anger for it’s ‘survival’ in the world. These vices are the the rust that slowly covers the soul completely until it forgets it was ever a soul at all.

Soul is an energy which is eternal and imperishable and therefore there is no need for ‘survival’ and no need for the vices.

As, I the soul, wake up to this reality and allow it to manifest practically into my life, the rust will begin to lift and I become available and attracted to the Supreme Magnet again.

 

Om Shanti

Still Point

One

Let me take a moment and become still.

I take a long, deep, slow breath and then another and one more until I feel relaxed. I become aware of my own body which has now become heavy and still.

I move my focus within, into my inner world, and as I do that I become aware that everything within has also slowed down. My thoughts, feelings and even my inner responsiveness.

As I watch and experience this state of being I realise that I have become a detached observer of my physical self.
I the soul sit awake and conscious of the body in which I am sitting. The body is separate and I am separate.

I move my focus again to my innermost self and emerge a thought in my awareness – ‘who am I?’
And from deep within the self an experience emerges … ‘I am…’
It is as if the deepest most ancient and wise part of the self responds to this call.
‘I am ….’. ‘I am the embodiment of all goodness and strength’. ‘ I am the eternal soul’.
In this moment, absorbed within this experience, I realise my own unlimited truth.

My truth, which is beyond the day to day trivia that I play. My truth, which is so pure and powerful and unlimited.
And life is a small scene within my truth which is eternal.

My whole perspective of reality changes in this moment of truth.

 

Om Shanti

Why am I talking?

gossip

We often hear the phrase ‘Its good to talk’. And of course speech is a very powerful tool, allowing us to express our attitudes and true feelings.

However, as someone recently pointed out – whenever we speak, there is always a reason behind it. We may not be aware of it but definitely there is some intent and the quality of intent will vary from time to time. We may find that sometimes on a surface level the intent maybe loving and full of respect and it genuinely feels really good. But dive deeper under the surface and perhaps we may discover some deep personal desires of wants and needs that are governing the intent behind our talking …talking to take control, get regard, respect, be acknowledged, gain acceptance, be included, undermine others to feel more powerful…….

Its good to talk, but let me be honest and check my intent behind it. Let me make this a natural practice because surely as we learn to develop purity in our intent, the power behind our words will have a powerful positive impact – both on me and others!

 

Om Shanti

Law of Attraction

attraction_power

Thought power is one of the most beneficial creative powers we possess.

Like seeds, if we feed and nourish them with the right attention, they will have a natural tendency to grow and manifest positivity in our life. Our behaviour and attitude, actions and reactions are shaped by the thoughts we cultivate.

Moreover, our thoughts generate energy in the form of subtle vibrations. These vibrations become like a magnetic field reaching out to and attracting similar thought vibrations.

By consciously choosing the right quality of thoughts, accompanied by powerful visualisation, over time, we can train our mind to harness thoughts that will attract more and more goodness and positivity into our lives. This is the law of attraction.

As we think so we become. Our destiny is in our thoughts.

Om Shanti

Deep, Deeper, Deeper Still

consciousness

Taking time out for ourselves just to sit quietly has become a luxury many of us cannot afford these days. There is just no time, we argue. A never ending ‘to do’ list.

It might be surprising however to find that it is when I give time to connect with my innermost self, that I will be able to ‘generate’ more time.

By diving deep into my inner world, I move away from the surface of my mind where I am subject to the turbulent effects of external influences. In the depths of the self I am the captain of my mind. In the still waters within I am reconciled with my own peace and stillness. My thoughts slow down. There is a sense of calm and clarity.

As I re-surface from the depths within, I sense a change in the nature of my thoughts ….fewer in quantity but greater in quality. With few but powerful thoughts my capacity for handling tasks and responsibilities has grown manifold.

Invest in ‘quiet time’ regularly and reap the reward……fewer thoughts, powerful thoughts.

 

Om Shanti
