CHENNAI: Most of us make a mistake by thinking that our thoughts are invisible, psychic and hence they can’t do anything, but actually thoughts have both hands and legs, because one can control one’s hand to rob nothing, control one’s legs to kick nobody, but one can scarcely control one’s thought without thinking, as thought is too deep to be expressed, too strong to be suppressed, too fast to be drawn back, hence he who cannot command his thoughts,will soon lose command of his actions.
The wars and struggles and quarrels of mankind are very often caused by this. A deep thinking would show that most of the present global problems are products of thought pollution, for this pollution destroys a person’s sense of being impartial, considerate and co-operative and makes him callous, inimical, violent-prone and vicious. It influences economics, politics, commerce, business, even friendship and all relationships and destroys real love, kindness and human values which are essential to peace and happy life. The ultimate solution to this problem lies in realising the self and also our relationship with other human beings. Without a spiritual orientation of the relationship between man and man, moral and spiritual values cannot be brought into play or be sustained, and, in the absence of these core values, no problem can really have a durabale solution. If this is not done, then possibly science without spirituality may dangerously lead mankind to a nuclear catastrophe or population explosion or environmental upheaval. So, let us use the powerful weapon of spiritual wisdom to cleanse our soul from thought pollution and survive in harmony with nature and its elements without any kind of disturbance whatsoever.
