You must drop all that you think you know, for true wisdom will never come to visit you if you hold opinions and judgements about anything. False knowledge is akin to giving a child a loaded gun to play with. Unless you learn to think clearly, your mind will be led astray by every contrived thought that enters your mind.
First you must drop all that you think you know! You have gained false knowledge like many people, since you were a child. Your thoughts and opinions have been tainted by your parents, your teachers, family and friends. Even newspapers, TV and the media have had a say in how you should think. Society has told you to live this way or that. Who is to say anything you have been taught is the true way to think or be.
I am not saying that all you have been told or learnt is wrong. I am asking you to start afresh, begin again as if were a child in its first day at school. Every day from now onwards you must unlearn as much as you learn. You must keep your mind flowing, just as a pool of water becomes stagnant, if it does not receive fresh water. Your mind also will become like a sewer, if you allow anything but pure thoughts to enter it.
What is a pure thought you may ask? A pure thought simply has passed a test, if it were to be spoken aloud it would not harm or upset another in any way, shape or form. It is a thought born of God, it is profound and invigorating. It is a solution to a problem that keeps everyone happy, not just yourself. If you can learn to decipher the difference, which is basically knowing how to be discerning between selfish and selfless thoughts. If you are able to do this, you will progress far in life. Thoughts and ideas, turn into words and actions. If your thoughts are pure, your actions will follow suit. In time the problems of life will lessen, because you are acting with everyone’s interest at heart. Others will notice this as you will illuminate as a person who is genuine, honest and trustworthy. No one will trust someone if their words and actions are not in accord.
Your mind and heart must join as one, if your thoughts are infused with love and I mean divine love not physical love, then everything you do will be for a higher purpose. If love is not your objective, then you should take yourself away from the situation. It must be the sole reason you do anything. If love is not there, little by little you will begin to lose motivation and interest. You will feel like you are achieving nothing. If there is a lack of love there will more than likely be resentment and a host of negative thoughts and feelings attached. For this reason you must put love at the forefront of your mind in everything that you do, if you want to achieve lasting happiness.
You must learn to keep things simple, do not over complicate. True wisdom is simplicity in action. Those that talk in riddles or pertain that everything esoteric is some hidden mystery, only want to impress you with their meagre knowledge. We can all sound clever if we talk on our favourite subject for 5 minutes. This is the ego speaking through the person who sets himself up as a master or guru. You must be humble, God thought, correct thought will not get through to you unless you are one hundred percent humble. Stop taking yourself serious and instead connect your mind to the free flowing pure thoughts that come from Heaven above.
Everything you need to know, is already within you, there is no need to look far for the answers, you are your own master, you are the key that opens the doorway to enlightenment. The wisdom of the universe will come flooding through, once you have removed every negative thought that stands in your way.
