Rosicrucian Reflections #46

“It is a metaphysical fact that for each minute of time we spend in thoughts of unfavorable impressions, unkind criticism, or hate toward any person, there will be hours of physical and mental suffering as a reaction. The first thing to do, then, in considering the relief of any mental or physical condition is to analyze your mental self over a period of time preceding the condition and discover what thoughts, attitudes, and conditions of mind you have held or expressed, and immediately eliminate this attitude by reversing your opinions, thoughts, and holding thoughts of love and kindness instead. In other words, the poison from the mind that has been eating at the very heart of every cell in your body must be eliminated before any treatment can be given to relieve the ultimate and outer manifestations. Any other process is merely treating the outer manifestations as though giving them a drug to nullify the senses without removing the actual cause.”

  1. Love this sooo much! ❤️🦋🌀

  2. “immediately eliminate this attitude by reversing your opinions” – this reversal is not feasible immediately (or pessimistically speaking, at all) because opinions are found to be very stubborn. This is why changes are seldom seen and if at all, merely behaviourally instead of thoughts internally.

    Practical question is how to transform such opinions of people, especially when I do not believe in convincing others.

    So true! Thanks for reminder!

  4. Joshuto says:

    “The first thing to do, then, in considering the relief of any mental or physical condition is to analyze your mental self over a period of time preceding the condition and discover what thoughts, attitudes, and conditions of mind you have held or expressed,“
    Buddha too suggested similar to his Disciple Sariputra-when he is at seventh rug of internal ladder, in his book ‘Heartsutra’. Ordinary person is so much caught by desires of the world that it is difficult for him/her to be able to analyse his thoughts and follow them backwards to its beginning.

  5. Joshuto says:

    A western philosopher said ‘The other is hell’. It is so true for all mental problems and in controlling the mind too it is equally true. Just the application is different. In mental problems it begins with the other and never stops or becomes very difficult to stop. In case of achieving no-mind state it ends in realising the ‘other’ through backward analysis to know from where it begun and over a long period it helps in immediate realisation of ‘the other’ as soon as it enters our mind! That is called by mystic Kabir as employing a security guard for the mind to let entry of only well known thoughts.
