Subject: Power of Thought

Originally written by amena on 2003-02-25 8:45 PM

this reminds me of the demand causation post you made . .. . that because every thought weighs in the balance ....

Hi amena..... yes..... EVERY thought weighs in the balance.  There ARE NO idle thoughts..... EVERY thought produces form at some level..... EVERY thought manifests in some way.  This is YOUR world..... welcome to it.

the answer lies in mind training so we use the mind as an instrument to create the happy dream.

Yes..... the mind training is necessary for a variety of reasons.  First of all, sleep.... is like being in a daze...... and so the sleeping are unaware of so many of the thoughts they entertain.  Thoughts that are kept out of conscious awareness.... due to guilt or shame...... or just through sheer repetitive habit.

Second..... we have collectively bought into the notion that thoughts are meaningless...... not recognizing the power of our thoughts. Your thoughts create. Your thoughts create the world....... and populate it.  Every action within the world..... is a manifestation of a thought that you allowed to take root..... in fertile soil...... and from there you gave it attention and nurturing.  It has grown into your garden..... and welcome to it.

we must get involved in whatever way we are so impulsed.

Well we are already involved.  Raj isn't trying to get us involved..... He is trying to get us involved in a DIFFERENT way.  "Find an object of your affection, AND THEN...... get involved."  See the magnitude of the difference?

It is like Jesus saying (paraphrase) "First divest yourself of everything, AND THEN..... come follow me."

the world and its suffering will change when mind changes.

First we have to care..... about the world...... about the suffering...... enough. Enough..... to DO the work.

I love you,
