Beloved Baba, Pronam! You have taught us to simply watch our thoughts without judging them or praising them. But how can we keep from speaking the thoughts out loud, especially when what one is saying might hurt someone? How do you keep from saying your thoughts? With gratitude, Norman, AofP
See what i have been talking in all the 50 odd questions asked and responded. Simply to awake to your own mind, your own heart, your own soul.
The more you focus on the quality of the soul within, the more a sense of forgiveness and compassion will surround you. Provocations then can not ignite the fire of anger in you. As you keep watching your mind non-judgmentally you grow in the awareness of your Soul. Who is the watcher? As you allow the Witness consciousness to awaken in you, you will see that your thought and its quality would change. For, in the very act of Observation, the light of consciousness works the magic of purging the unwanted clutters from the mind creating space for pure light to permeate and fill you up. In the space of angry thoughts you will have thoughts of compassion and love.
Your need to be vocal about some one else’s fault will gradually diminish as the light of awareness increases through your regular practice. You will see the other person’s helplessness, or weakness, or difficulties or even see the deeper message that comes from the others.
When are you hurt? When your expectations are challenged. When your conditional rut is threatened. The whole purpose of meditation and mindfulness is to wake up to the need of being unconditional and mindful. The more mindful you are less the need for you to be vocal. As such so much peace abides in the shrine of your heart that as the clutter and chatter of your mind subsides you are flooded with a sense of contentment and fulfillment.
You no longer feel the need to say your thoughts, for you have nothing to prove as an effort of the ego. If someone has hurt you, then there are many others who have given you praise too, which one would you say as the truth? Neither, for they had to come they came, you are neither the praise nor the insult. You are unscathed by either.
Wish you a peaceful journey to the world of peace, for peace can not be attained by any other ways, but by being in peace. Forgiveness, Compassion, Love be with you,
