good thoughts/bad thoughts
« on: July 02, 2011, 07:40:08 PM »
Dear sirs,

It is true we do not have control in our thoughts. Most of the people have good and bad thoughts. But some people always have good thoughts only. Is it pre destiny or their previous birth's vasanas. Or is it God's will.?

Dear Ramanaduli,

Good thoughts and bad thoughts - both come out of
vasanas of previous births. What one can do is to
continue with good thoughts and try to avoid every
single bad thought by quickly substituting it with
good thoughts. This is of course, easier said than
done. But Sri Bhagavan says, if one cultivate good
thoughts, bad thoughts will fall off and eventually,
one should even transcend the good thoughts and
be in thoughtless state. Permanent abidance in
thoughtless state is Shanti, Moksha, Bliss etc.,

Arunachala Siva.

Dear ramanaduli,

Yes it is vasanas only. You can change them as you wish back and forth.
But on this path we don't change bad for good and good for bad, we go straight to the core and transcend any thought no matter what it appears to be like.
