Thought-trend is how you consciously choose to align a few thoughts as part of you. That is “thought-trend”.
“Thought-current” is, which is the default thinking style of your personality, your being, your inner-space.
For example, the day I went to do Ganga Arati, those few days we celebrate the “Colours of Life” in Hindu Tradition by throwing colour powder. So, I saw, people were throwing colour even on Ganga Ma! They were throwing colours on Ganga and celebrating. See, when you throw the colour powder on Ganga, naturally the colour powder will float on the top of the Ganga, and in a few days it will disappear into the Ganga. So, imagine the colour powder floating on the Ganga; that is what I call “thought-trend”. And the flow of the Ganga is “thought-current”.
Every day, how you perceive you, with what all you are directly struggling, that is “thought-trend”.
And your whole life’s thinking flow, what you perceive as you in your dreams, in your deep sleep, all that I will call as “thought-current”.
My only request: just co-ordinate your thought-trend; that is enough! You don’t need to worry about your thought-current. “Thought-trend” means, every day in your thought-trend, thinking trend, based on which you make your day-to-day decisions like, ‘Should I drive my car and go to office, or should I go by bus? Should I get up and brush my teeth, or should I just have a cup of coffee and lie down? Should I take up a job or not?’ How every day decisions you make, that you make naturally based on thought-trend, not on thought-current.
Understand, based on thought-current you make bigger, stupid decisions like marrying, divorcing, committing suicide; those kind of stupid decisions only you make based on thought-current. But these small decisions like, ‘Should I drive my car, or should I go by bus? Am I feeling sleepy, or am I feeling fresh?’, these things you do based on thought-trend. Please listen, don’t worry at all about thought-current. Just decide you will align your thought-trend. Means, every morning when you get up, tell yourself, ‘I cannot have tiredness or boredom. I am the eternal, excited, Satchitananda Swaroopa, Nithyanandoham!’ Naturally, your inner-space will raise a doubt, because you are all brainwashed by psychologists: ‘No, no, no….unless the truth becomes my experience, how can I start living it?’
The SDHD (Self-Doubt, Self-Hatred, Self-Denial), one of the biggest diseases with which human-beings are suffering, is supplied, controlled by psychologists. Please understand, the collective karma the profession is suffering is because of constantly keeping people in SDHD, Self-Doubt, Hatred, Denial. The collective joy that sannyasis are enjoying is because we go on giving courage and confidence! I tell you, even the beggar Sannyasi who does not contribute anything, just because he wears this cloth (“kaavi” – the saffron-coloured cloth), he gets food and money. Even a foolish psychiatrist who does not know much of psychology, just because of his profession, he commits suicide.
Listen! Don’t believe the idea these psychologists put in your system that only if you transform your thought-current you can be complete, you can rest in peace. No! Just organize your thought-trend; that is enough! From morning waking up to night falling asleep, your every day, if you align it to Advaitha, that is enough. Morning when you wake up if you feel bored or tired, just tell yourself, ‘I am the eternal space, Nithyananda! I cannot be tired! I cannot be bored!’ One part of you continues to tell you, ‘No, no…..I am tired! I am bored!’ Don’t worry about it. It is okay. You be democratic. Tell it, ‘You be tired for some time. I will be fresh for some time.’ Don’t give up, saying, ‘Oh, God! Unless I transform the whole thought-current, I cannot be Advaithi.’ No! Start with the thought-trend; then, every action, small-small actions.
In India we have this bunch of Maoists, Naxals, terrorist fellows, with weapons. One bunch is with weapons. There is another one bunch with ideology. In Tamil Nadu, there is the bunch of atheist fellows. These atheist fellows are robbers of society. They rob society. How many thousands of crores they swindled by different means – through cinemas, through media, through the entertainment industry, through politics! But they go on abusing: ‘Why should you give these few coins to sadhus….sadhus and priests?’ Please understand….understand some of the important ideas I am trying to share with you. Those few sadhus and priests, they may not have transformed their thought-current into Advaitha, but their every-day thought-trend is mixed with so much of Advaitha! So, please understand, they are a thousand times better than any of your psychologists. These sadhus and priests, they are thousand times better than any of your psychtherapists! The priests and sadhus at least help you to align your thought-trend to non-dualism.
You don’t need to bother about the whole thought-current. The thought-trend being aligned towards Advaitha is enough, because as life you are experiencing only thought-trend. Actually, when you align your thought-trend, the thought-current also will become non-dualistic. But we always think that only after thought-current becomes non-dualistic, the thought-trend should become non-dualistic. No! Start with the thought-trend. Then your thought-current will automatically become non-dualistic. Start tuning your thought-trend to non-dualistic.
Handle your every-day actions, simple actions like what kind of food you eat, how many hours you sleep, what is your simple perception about your neighbours, what is your simple perception about your boss, what is your simple perception about your spouse, these day-to-day things, align it to Advaitha. Know very clearly, your boss is nothing but one part of you which always wants to rule without explaining! Again your spouse….is also one part of you who goes on explaining which you don’t want to listen! Whether you realize it or not, everyone who is part of your life is extension of you. I may not even want to use the word “extension”. I want to correct that word to,“Everyone who is part of your life is YOU!’ Because, the word “extension” gives a certain gap. Everyone who is part of your life is YOU!
Kundalini awakening, Yoga, meditation, Kriya, everything is great as long as it leads you to experience the non-dualistic truth, Advaitha Sathya, Advaitha Poorna, Advaitha Jnana. So, I wanted our whole Sangha – please listen – the whole Sangha, whether you are a Thanedar, Mahant, or Kothari, Shrimahant, whoever you are, align all your relationships with everyone to Advaitha. If there is a problem that the other person is not listening to you, first see you are not able to speak into your listening; that is why you are not able to speak into others’ listening. See where you are not able to speak into your listening. Do that!
My dream Sangha is: Never anybody will force the other person for anything; where everyone is able to speak into his own listening and others’ listening. Understand, in every step of your life, infuse Shuddha Advaitha Sathya, the pure Advaithic principles, pure Advaithic knowledge, pure Advaitha. Make it as thought-trend. Make it as thought-trend.
