Control the Senses

December 20, 2014

The senses are your real foes. They draw you out, and disturb your peace of mind. Do not keep company with them. Subdue them. Restrain them. Curb them, just as you would curb your enemies on the battlefield. This is not the work of a day. It wants patient and protracted sadhana (practice) for a very long time. Control of the senses is really control of the mind.

Thought is Connected with Every Object

December 11, 2014

The whole universe is a single organism, and therefore every thought is connected with every object. There is a chance, therefore, of everyone enjoying everything in the world. Anyone can enjoy anything inasmuch as every thought is connected with every object in the world inwardly, though outwardly there are all isolated, cut off from one another. Here is a great secret for us, a great scientific fact that comes before out mind for daily implementation in our life. Whatever you think can be manifest and possessed. This is a great psychological and scientific truth. Whatever you deeply think, that will materialise. This is the principle applied in meditation also.
