When we realize our role in the Existential scheme of things, we can no longer feel separate from all those around us. We can only feel separated when we feel unconscious of our role, when we are unaware. The time has come to create a critical mass of enlightened people on planet earth. Only by creating more and more people who are awakened, who are enlightened, can the collective influence of individual negativity be destroyed. All calamities around the world are created only by unconscious human beings. Global warming, HIV, religious terrorism, fanaticism, and piles of atomic weapons, are all because of this negativity. Today, we are facing so many dangers, that unless we create a peaceful, blissful, joyful, and enlightened society, we will not be able to preserve this beautiful planet earth. My mission is to create a peaceful, joyful, blissful, conscious, enlightened society.
Actually, a majority of us are caught up in fighting with our own selves. We are caught in a web of self-contradictory thoughts and desires. Our thoughts and words are so powerful, but we use them so casually. For example, say you have a headache, what do you do? You tell yourself, ‘How I wish this headache would go away!’ You don’t realize that each of these words carries the power of desire and actualization within them. By uttering these words, you give as much power to the word ‘headache’ as you give to the words ‘go away’. This is what I mean by self-contradictory thoughts. By your very thought, you contradict your original desire. Even your positive intention is caught in the fight, the dilemma of your own thoughts and words. The nature of the mind is dilemma. You will then ask, ‘How do I get rid of this headache?’ Just say, ‘Let me be healed!’ that’s all. The mind is so used to thinking only negative words, that is the problem. Our self-contradictory thoughts are the root cause of all our suffering.
All our suffering arises from our ignorance of the truth that we are, by nature, bliss. We are a part of Existence, which is by nature bliss. Once we intellectually and experientially understand this, we will consciously and strongly see our self-contradictory thoughts being replaced by self-healing thoughts. When we infuse healing thoughts into our system again and again, we give power to positive words and thoughts. They get embedded in our very muscle memory. So at times of low mood and depression, these healing thoughts will automatically come up in our inner space and pull us out of the low mood. On our own, we can raise ourselves up from our low feelings and the negative play of the mind.
