Let me go to the next ideal to practice.
I pointed to that food : - Shall I take that? Why? (This “Why” need to be asked for everything the senses approach). If the only thing for which I should go for that is pleasure then I must not go for that. Because Master has never said us to seek sense pleasure. It is not needed for any thing whatsoever. Well once in a year is ok.
Renunciation is of the mind. Don't even think about things which wanted to be renounced.
Renunciation is controlling mind, thoughts, feelings absolutely, every minute.
Renunciation is of the mind. Not to even open the mind to those things which are to be renounced. And always to be thought of others good.
You see I can work on something only by giving up other things. If I want to grow I must renounce.
And what to think you know.
Next : - Think good thoughts (and keep reading and meditating on what Master has said on 'Meditation')
Renounce all less-good thoughts once and for all.
I've renounced listening music.
But after one hour or so of writing the above sentence suddenly I'm listening my favourite bollywood songs.
Renounce thinking non-sense thoughts and think only good thoughts and pure thoughts.
Renounce the nonsense of the senses.
I'm just an witness to the senses. I see how they work, and react. Yet I'm the Lord over them. I know when to nip it in the bud. Let it suffer. I'm the Master over it, and over everything. I've absolute control over it. And I know how to eliminate these non-sense of my senses.
Next: Keep your senses under severe surveillance.
Placing your senses under severe surveillance means analyzing the thought process when a desire comes to heart, when someone hurts you; when someone whom I love dearly dies, etc. Watch your senses.
A life of perfect renunciation will be “complete self-discipline”, “complete self-control”.
Purity of the mind must be insisted upon if you would control it.
How to keep the mind pure?
The mind remains pure when we devote it solely in to thinking about others good. And not just the mind, but soul and body also.
The mind becomes impure when I think about my enemies. Hence whenever I need to think about my enemies, I need to think what I can do to make them benefited.
Hence continuously think about others and how you can do good to them.
Let these people be your God--------------think of them, work for them, pray for them incessantly---------------the Lord will show you the way.
I've been thinking about anyone and everyone for the last two days. But then I thought should I think about one person or any person whom my mind could think..................Well then I concluded that let me think about anyone who comes to my mind.
