POWER OF LOVE AND LIGHT IS REALLY IMMENSE
LIGHT AND LOVE
Knowledge helps to remove our ignorance
That pervades in us all
In one form or other
Ignorance is lack of information
Information, with which we can work out a solution
To remove the pestering problem of darkness
Generated by our ‘contrast mind’
Which engenders all the negative emotions
Such as anger, despair, narrow-mindedness et al
Which stare deep in our eyes at all times
Whence we do not know the way out of the dilemma
In which we’ve placed ourselves
Only the light of knowledge
Got over the period of time
Through our experimentation
On the thoughts created
Coming out of fertile mind
Termed as the ‘intuitive mind’ can deliver us
This intuitive mind is insightful and discerning in nature
And comes from within us – innate one
A huge reservoir of power in all of us
Through which LIGHT is generated
Which removes the darkness from within and without
This light makes light of all the dark clouds
Shrouded in all horizons
Here LIGHT generates peace and tranquility
Which produces LOVE as its reward
Thence LIGHT & LOVE combine TOGETHER
And help us to make our mind work in tandem
Making our soul purer by the removal of dross
Which covers the soul by our contrast mind.
With purity in thoughts and deeds
Intuitive mind and soul assist us humans
To remove desires produced by our senses
And help transact our daily tasks with total detachment
Which graces us with liberation (Moksha)
From birth and deaths finally
And thus our Soul merges with Super Soul ultimately.
POSITIVE GAMES OF MIND – KNOWLEDGE, LIGHT AND LOVE
It is rightly said, the education we get over a period of time, helps in unraveling the hidden vistas of knowledge, hitherto unknown which helps in getting life changing experiences. These experiences, when utilized practically, help us to live life purposefully. The more the attainment of righteous education, the more would be our self-awareness or self-realization, leading to knowing ourselves fully thereby giving joy and happiness. For knowing ourselves, we have to know the exact functioning of our body, mind and body.
IN BHAGWAD GITA HAS RIGHTLY said: This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting, and it is joyfully performed.
Importantly, with the application of knowledge, we get experience which provides us wisdom that purifies our body, mind and soul. The purified three make us balanced in all the situations and we stay calm and composed besides detached in every event.
Fact remains, light removes darkness, in other words, light of knowledge removes the ignorance from our midst. The knowledge is the awareness or know-how, to be aware about the facts, familiarity or acquaintance or wakefulness about new events. When the question of wakefulness is discussed, it means that the person concerned is not under the spell of anything but knows what is best to be known under the given conditions. The knowledge which we get removes ignorance. Ignorance is lack of knowledge about the subject matter in hand. Knowledge removes unawareness or removes darkness. A knowledgeable person knows how to solve a problem which he/she confronts. The knowledge about new things have helped our evolution from the ages itself.
Essentially, while all of us want to acquire knowledge to excel in the life and also are aware that absence of knowledge amounts to self-destruction. In other words, knowledge removes the scourge of darkness or ignorance from our midst and enlightens us about how to face the realities of a situation in which we are placed.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me..BIBLE
For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; BIBLE
To acquire knowledge, thereby, to dispel darkness, we have to have desire to learn. At our birth, we are born without any knowledge and then our quest for knowledge starts for which we are bestowed with senses to know various things. We should always be thankful to our Creator for bestowing us with everything under the sun to evolve ourselves.
And Allâh has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you know nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allâh).
We can get enlightened by the awareness that every good and bad events are not permanent ones. These are temporary illusions. These are passing clouds and the LIGHT and LOVE will remove them. These are the dream existence and impermanent ones and will pass as these come with the light of knowledge. But we have to maintain inner harmony. Whenever we face any difficulty or problem knocking our door, just introspect , focus inward till such time we see the light within. This light brings peace, joy and happiness.
While understanding our thoughts, education and knowledge thereof, it is essential that we know about the mind, which plays an important role in our holistic development and enhances LIGHT and LOVE in us.
Mind is accumulation of thoughts and these thoughts when not understood cloud our experiences and become hindrance in acquiring knowledge. Taken together such as thoughts, habits, behavior, desires, conditioning etc are the mind games which we should understand in order to live a purposeful life.
It is essential to know the nature of MIND and our own SELF. Without understanding MIND, we cannot proceed any further. This could be done with self introspection. Here we have to ask our own self; Who am I? What is the purpose of my life? Going deeper, we can know our true nature. We need to be very calm and composed while making such self-inquiry. This inquiry has to be repeated till an answer is received. This is the way to get answers in order to get self-awareness or self-realization. This will help our mind to recognize the ultimate Truth. We have to give the mind the taste the pleasure of true happiness. During that pleasure, our mind seems as though it does not exist at all. Just detached.
MIND AND ITS TWO PARTS
- The Contrast mind. The part of the mind which compares, divides, imagines, compares one thing with other, our biases with others etc. In this part, we tend to imagine about future and our past experiences/events. It also dwells on emotions such as anger, sadness or other negatively oriented emotions. These negatively oriented thoughts are to be ridden from our mind so as to acquire knowledge and with it LIGHT AND LOVE in true sense of terms.
When the contrast mind goes awry, it seeks pleasures of our senses. It goes from one pleasure thought to other. Subsequently the other one and it goes on. We see all the activities of the outer world with the prism of our senses. This mind is the source of our pains. For us, it is important to rein in this part of our mind otherwise it will give us more pain and disappointments. We are in quest for temporary pleasures, but get bored from one and tend to seek the another one.
- Intuitive mind. The intuitive mind is understanding, discriminating, discerning, insightful and works very logically, peacefully knowing about the pros and cons when something is to be done under all circumstances. In other words, this part of the mind is very simple and works with reasonableness in any event. Also, this part of mind helps the SELF (our true nature) to express its traits and could influence others too with whom he/she associates.
If we utilize our mind (intuitive mind) productively, we can have permanent peace and happiness. There are two ways to do this. One is to befriend the mind and get things done with understanding its nature. The other way is to cajole it, scare it, make it a slave, intimidate it and then get what you want. This way, we can get things for some time but it is not a permanent solution since how long you can tame a heady horse; when it will get time, it will certainly ditch you. It desires more pleasure and makes it a habit to desire more and more of it. The mind makes it a logic to repeat the same sense enhancement incident and want still to repeat it. This cause boredom and misery and stays in the past and glued to the past escapades.
We can also control our mind by focused meditation, preferably under the guidance of a Guru, this way, we can realize our true power. Here it totally surrenders and is not swayed in any way but stays in the present moment – a state of being loved and spreading love to others. We should always keep in mind that love is a great passion for a complete surrender. By doing so, we can open the doors of self liberation and Moksha. This way, our mind functions with complete detachment for our overall good in order to tap knowledge from any source we want.
INNER POWER OF SOUL
Subsequently, we should also know the inner power of our Soul which is a permanent entity in all of us. How best to tap this latent light of our soul? It should always be remembered that we all are light in true sense of terms and need is to identify this light. If this is understood then we can remove darkness which may have clouded our space of our mind. By so doing, we can draw out latent or potential energy for the good of our body, mind and soul. If we know about the light-within then nothing can harm us because we are doing everything with the Light within us. Therefore, light is a power.
Conclusively, it could rightly be said that with controlled mind, we can make it a slave in order to get the right education, knowledge which could transform that knowledge into LIGHT which removes darkness or ignorance from our midst and create LOVE. Then LIGHT and LOVE combine and give us purpose of our life.
