When we allow the mind to rest heavily upon sense objects, we create strong sense attraction. This attraction causes attachment to them. Attachment breeds craving and desires grow as we become attached to outcomes. Craving leads to anger when the outcome is denied or interfered with. Obstruction of desires agitates the calmness of our consciousness and confuses the mind. Anger breeds delusion as egoic self-grasping dominates. Delusion conceals our memory of the true Self and we forget our essential nature as pure consciousness. Loss of clear memory of our human dignity and divine nature make us to forget our essential Self causing the deterioration of our ability to discriminate. Loss of discrimination destroys our spiritual life. Discrimination is the motivating force of right action and when it is lost, we are led into misery.
Turn within. Meditate. See deeply. Avoid remembering bad thoughts. Do not dwell on negative experiences. Remember God. See God in others. Repeat God’s name. Remember we are sufficient in our Godhood. Remember God, Guru, Self and mantra are one. There is no other.
