The mind is a very curious machine, a concentrated and loosely organized clearing house for thoughts, taking inputs from all of the senses and the heart. Each thought and feeling has its chance in the mind – to be noticed, appreciated, and perhaps taken to a further step towards action. This happens whether the mind is clear or clouded.
Attempts have been made nearly forever through books, essays, speeches, slogans, and countless exhortations to change people’s minds, including our own – introducing an outside energy in the hopes it will synchronize as a key in the lock of the mind and open lasting change, or solidify a direction. Regardless of intent, it works sometimes, uncovering a commonality for good, or not.
The hidden weapon in this global battle of mental influence is our ability, inherent in every human being, to gain Full Enlightenment, Totality, Brahman. Accomplishing this has two very powerful effects:
First, Brahman operates from Totality, the three worlds [Heaven, Earth, and Hell] are neither opposed nor sought – they are simply seen in all their clarity and relationship. This brings peace simply through clear recognition – with no opposition and brightly illuminated, evil has no power other than the subsequent effort needed to disengage its claws (our service to tamas continues nonetheless; our humility). Divinity also operates more brightly illuminated.
Second, living Brahman the favoring of good is expressed Cosmically. All good thoughts are, from anyone, with the distinct advantage that Divinity, inhabiting Heaven and earth, feels this favoring of good through Brahman as a result of an active relationship, and takes heart. Just as the key that finds the lock, so does Brahman release Divinity to be noticed in the world.
How is Divinity noticed? Not by triple rainbows or double suns (!), but by strengthening the Divine recognition in the global population at the level of feeling. So that each of us, no matter the circumstances, can more easily make a decision favoring good. Infinite thoughts, infinite decisions, Infinite Divinity, Infinite good.
The vast majority of thought waves in our global sea, ever guided by the Divine, do translate into good actions. This moves the world in a direction of good, supported by Brahman, the growing Full Enlightenment within each of us, Totality. This brings Heaven on Earth.
