Beware!!!! Your Thoughts are Tagged...

Beware!!!! Your Thoughts are Tagged?
 (30)

  “Rafael, you told that God is in heaven. How do we reach there?”
“Easy we’ll have to build the tower of Babel once more.”
“What? The tower which created cultures and religions?”
“Yes, the very same, that is the only way to Heaven, but this time not with stones or cement but with  all that you have, no one can build a house with only one ingredient. Am I right or wrong?”
“You are absolutely right. It surely would fall down. So what are the ingredients?”
“First and foremost, your thoughts. The thoughts which you think cannot be seen by anybody, but that which is an integral part of your identity." All nodded
“Actually its very cozy, to be with thoughts, isn’t Rafael?”
“Yes it is, but you should know, that thought is the root cause of all that is good and evil, just like atoms of nature, just like bricks of a house.”
“Really? Wow!!! That’s cool.” All nodded
“Yes Mark, it is but do you know that thoughts are stronger than action? And it is our own creation? No one has any role in bringing thoughts. It is equal to action. The Bible says thus,
What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”
The thoughts are the foundation of your existence. It is what makes you a good person or bad person. Even though you feel that no one sees your thoughts, whatever action you do is the result of your thoughts, consciously or unconsciously.”

“Oh God!!! Really Rafael? That’s news.” All nodded
“Yes, Mathew, so be very careful what you think. So that is why it is necessary, first and foremost you should strictly watch what you should be allowed into your mind.” All nodded.
 “If you are able to clear your thoughts, then its easier to overcome obstacles.”
“But Rafael, how is it possible? How can we control our thoughts from wandering?”
“Easy, what would your mother do, when she sees the house  dirty?”
“Cleans it.”
“Exactly, since now you are aware, that thoughts are our worst enemies, our downfall. So when our mind prepares to bring thoughts inside, get the broom ready to throw off.”
“How do we do that, Rafael?”
“I’ll give an example and a small and easy technique.” All nodded and smiled
“What will be the first thought, when you are hungry?”
“Food.” Mark interjected without a second thought. All smiled.
“So that is what you should do, when bad thoughts come to you, neutralize it with good thoughts. Think the opposite. When you continue doing that, our mind itself would think “Oh!! This Mark I’m fed up of him, he always thinks opposite of me, its waste of time with him. I quit. So saying, he stops arriving at your doorstep.” All smiled
“Then slowly you would lose interest in thoughts, by then you’d know, its just not real.” All nodded.
“Have you seen the movie, “The Sound of Music”?”
“Several times.” All nodded and smiled.
“In that movie, there is a song, Few of my favourite things. There is a very touching line,
When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

And then when you train your thoughts to throw away your bad thoughts, you will slowly learn to keep your mind blank – no thoughts, that is what you should achieve, the tranquil mind. There is an old saying that half filled water spills more water than the full brimmed pot, the deeper you gain knowledge of God and your Self, you will be able to keep your mind blank of thoughts, because you’d know, it’s a mirror image of our destination but not destination. So break that mirror and move forward.” All nodded
“Now is the time, the ground is cleared for you for the take off to the heavenly abode.” All nodded.
“I’d better say, how you could keep your blank, first foremost, you should know, you are the masters of your destiny.”
“Rafael, I thought, it was God, how come now we became the masters of our own destiny?”
“The power of “Decision”  is in your hand Rebecca, when it is in the hands of God, then you would be right. But He gave us the “Power Of Wisdom” and the “Power To Decide”, then naturally we are the masters, but this mastery we should it wisely.” All nodded.
“So if you decide  to block all bad thoughts from your mind, you can achieve it easily because it is your decision, we do not have to wait for others time.” All nodded.
“Its some tips, then when you continue with it, God would open more wider vistas than you could imagine to develop yourself.” All nodded.
“First, close your eyes and  focus on your breathing, the coming in of air and going out of air, the speciality of the inner organs is, it continues its work, whether you appreciate it or not, right?”
“That is how you should be, you have a duty to fulfill, don’t look at the world, but look into yourdelf, then you will be able to run your self smoothly.” All nodded.
“Now, take the five minutes of your life to see how you breathe in air and throw it out. It’s a rhythm, then day by day or hourly once,  extend the time of focusing on your breathing, when the thoughts try to edge in sideways, don’t bother to tag on it because, it’d take a full circle ride round the world and bring you back to where you sit. Waste of time and nothing is gained, that is what the Bible says thus
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
So actually  bad thoughts robs and loots the very essence of you, so beware.” All nodded
“Now as you do the exercise, try to do it when you are in the playground, park and open eyes, then you’ll develop after that, you can keep your mind blank of thoughts without any techniques just by willing it.”
“Its simply superb, Rafael. Thank you so much” Rafael smiled and nodded.
 We’ll discuss the rest tomorrow?” All nodded
