1. We all have it –
Every human being can rise to the level of the great spiritual persons upon whom religions have been built. I believe every one of us has the exact same fundamental human equipment- soul, heart, mind, body. Therefore I suggest that all human beings have the same potential. Every human alive today has the same potential as Jesus the Christ had, same potential as Gautama the Buddha had, same potential as Mohammed the Prophet had…
2. We don’t believe we have it –
We don’t believe this because of our limited thinking/wrong thinking/prejudicial thinking/habitual thinking. Our minds tell us that we can’t do this, we can’t do that, we can’t BE this, we can’t BE that. Our minds have taken full control over our lives. The vast majority of us are literally slaves to our own mind, proven by the fact that even when we wish to change something about ourselves, a behavior or habit, we find it extremely difficult to change and usually don’t change until it becomes absolutely necessary.
3. Heart gives guidance –
I believe the mind is an instrument which we should be the master of. It is a powerful tool to execute the work given to it, not something which should control us or steer our lives. Our heart is our connection to divinity, even religions agree on this. Our direct connection to divinity is inside us in our hearts, and we can feel this if we try. This divinity has a “voice”, not an audible voice, but a way of guiding us perfectly every moment in all situations. The problem with most modern humans is that the mind has gone haywire and is covering up the guidance our heart is trying to give us. And this is what guilt is, when we do something that our mind tells us to do, but our heart feels this was not the right thing to do.
4. When heart is ignored –
Our mind tells us so many things, but in our hearts we know we are not even coming close to our potential. Therefore people who are hugely successful in the material field but completely ignorant of their own spiritual nature, the call of their heart, are miserable on the inside and in many cases kill themselves. The examples are many, especially in the entertainment business.
5. A clue to help us –
Now, how to help ourselves? A clue from Albert Einstein: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” This essence of this message from Einstein is that we have to transcend our current thinking, our current paradigm, our current fixity on the material/physical/technological aspects of our lives if we wish to solve our major problems and evolve. This takes courage, to venture into the supposed “unknown”.
7. The next frontier –
They say space is the final frontier, but I believe we as humans will benefit much more if spirituality, true spirituality, completely beyond religion, is the next frontier that we actively explore. The modern mind tells us that we are the final product of evolution, but really we are just another rung on the ladder of evolution. If we don’t keep climbing Nature will do away with us as it does with anything which has lost its usefulness. If you plunge into the ultimate wisdom of your own heart, you will know the truth.
8. Sad but true –
If we don’t expand our awareness, remember our potential, acknowledge our inner selves, our higher selves, then we will continue on this steadily declining path of misery, hatred, destruction, and dissatisfaction, which are prevalent everywhere today.
9. Wake up –
So, the message of today may be, Wake up! You know this independence and freedom that Americans cherish, we would be wise to use it in a real sense, not just to buy more and more things we want, or drive our fancy cars wherever we want. We will each benefit immensely by being bold and striving to realize what we really are as human beings, the higher self inside each one of us, and the infinite potential inside each one of us.
10. There is a way –
I would like to make everyone aware of a comforting alternative. When everything seems to be going well, but you still don’t feel complete or satisfied. When you successfully achieve an important goal in your life and being dissatisfied you ask, “Is this all there is?” Reach out to spirituality, true spirituality, the next human frontier, and the only means of transcending the mess we’ve made so far. A very simple and effective way called Sahaj Marg is available in this area. The only requirement is your willingness to try it and there are never any fees.
11. Let’s do it together –
You are welcome to take further information which is available here, and you’re welcome to speak further to any of us who have courageously embarked on this adventure.
May we all have the courage to rise above our limited thinking and accept the blessings which are always there for us,
