Everyone executes actions via the body and thinking via their mind. If both remain inactive they start degenerating and can lose their very existence. The level or stature of our actions and thinking is directly the function of the means of daily living procured by us from our incomes. Farsighted people not only look after both these but try and make them more advanced. As a result their stature is much higher than the ordinary man on the streets. Those who follow nature’s law of healthy eating and sleeping habits generally lead a diseased free long life. A student aspiring to become skillful and scholarly studies hard on a regular basis and this intellectual proficiency helps him earn wealth and grandeur. Thus ordinarily this is the periphery within which our bodies and minds are nourished and nurtured.
Even after using our potential for our worldly living what remains is gigantic to put it mildly. If only all the aspects of the soul center is given due importance, if special efforts are made to manifest and use them for great tasks man can become the master of such attainments which are infinitely more glorious than all the wealth and grandeur of this external world put together.
When in all directions there is frenzied onrush to unearth the unknown and attain that which has eluded us so far why should we not make even greater efforts in unveiling and bloom the external and internal layers of the soul center? Under the subjects of Psychology and Para Psychology some research work has commenced within the realm of man’s psyche. Some very encouraging results have come their way and many conclusions of very good utility value too have been put forth. Despite all this a basic lack can be noticed wherein their research has been limited within the narrow periphery of the anatomical and functional aspect of the human brain. For material science material objects are the ultimate units of this world. Hence these revered scientists unfortunately limit their experiments to unearthing and analyzing the functions of brain cells. With the result they ignore and fail to enter the portals of that field of research which helps us understand the true form of consciousness along with discerning its potential to execute gigantic feats.
The body remains alive with the help of means related to eating and resting. The brain is incited by our aspirations and beliefs. In a layman’s life hunger, desires, ego, self protection etc rein over the mind. But the matter does not end here. Beliefs, aspirations and sentiments are independent in the sense it is not influenced by bodily needs and is quite unrelated to the anatomy of brain cells. And yet its potency is so intense that it has the power to turn topsy-turvy our very soul center. In fact many a time we actually see how it can capsize the boat of an ordinary but much needed flow. The bodily requirement of satisfying hunger and thirst is not conjoined to our desperation. This is because our intense faith conjoined to fasts and religious vows (Vratas) can certainly ward of hunger-thirst for a certain time span. Psychologists opine that sexual passion is a material/worldly requirement but even they cannot overlook the great attainments of Brahmacharya (sexual continence for a higher goal). The vow of Brahmacharya not only masters the actual abstinence of the sexual act but that ones previous mediocre thinking is taken to high peaks of greatness. No doubt it is but natural that try to we save ourselves during dire situations and yet many valiant men the world over have given up their bodies with a serene smile on their face. No doubt every bodily part yearns for material comforts and yet great Yogis, saints, sages etc who perform intense austerities do so not only voluntarily but with divine joy writ large over their countenance.
Many material psychological conclusions create speed breakers because according to them it is only the mind and body’s anatomy influence man’s thinking. According to them thought flow exists solely to fulfill man’s needs. If this were to be the absolute truth why do great men endure hardships for great tasks and why do they share their attainments with the entire world? Material Psychology’s principles maybe full of logic and facts but know for sure that they are one sided and not all encompassing. This is because the second aspect of Psychology is no less important. It says that sentiments influence our body a great deal and that not only do they control the body but right from practice to creation it is responsible for creating its new mould. Thus a prolific transformation takes place which can be called the miracle of an upward pressure. No doubt needs and habits influence the brain and pressurize it to create desired situations. Despite this the sentimental aspect is not that weak wherein we can ignore it totally. In fact the bare reality is this that our sensitive and sentimental nature is extremely influential. Material Psychology says that the mental make up, mode of action and habits gathered from many past lives pressurize our beliefs which in turn influence our day to day life intensely. Thus comes in the concept of sheer destiny and makes one its dependent. In a certain sense ones basic independence is totally lost because is one is to remain a slave of mental desire based activities why make undue effort of imbibing great thinking and a glorious character? Activities are predominantly ‘animalistic’ in nature. Assuming that destiny via the medium of ones mindset decides lewdness in man’s desires, criminal leanings or an attacking action for self preservation and anger manifested by the ego man will perforce have to live like a beast. Such negation based principles will definitely hurl man towards a painful downfall.
The spiritual aspect of Psychology has analyzed the psyche on the second basis. It proclaims that the substratum of the soul abounds in greatness but while living a worldly life undesirable activities leave their tainted imprints so as to veil the soul/psyche. Since there is total absence of regular sanctification of the soul tainted desires rule over the psyche and hence the body too acts unwholesomely. This is an unnatural and undesirable state. It can be rectified via scriptural studies, self introspection, associating with realized saints, meditation on the cosmic soul (God) and other modes of mental purification. In this manner our consciousness can regain its lost glory which is its natural state. Apart from this the second proclamation of the spiritual aspect is that the human bodily consciousness harbors within it those seeds of greatness and potency present in Almighty Lord. These seeds can sprout fully into supreme power with the help of various spiritual practices (Sadhana). In this manner consciousness advances more and more so as to ultimately reach the stature of great man, Rishis, gods, Avatars etc.
It is only the material aspect of psychological analysis that is being taught in educational institutes of great repute the world over. The intellectual class too agrees with this trend. As a result there is a great lack in Psychology based research and everyone thinks it apt to bow down to destiny like a slave and live the life of a beast. Under such conditions man feels he perforce must live like an animal-man or a bird-man. Hence why would anyone endure the hardship of mental complexes created by ones beastly mindset? Most definitely not only are we giving a green signal to this downfall but by labeling it as ‘natural’ we are supinely surrendering to it. It goes without saying that this type of materialism oriented psychological research has uprooted the very foundation of high ideals and the inclination to aspire for inner greatness. Thus a very fragile world situation has manifested wherein the individual’s and the future of the entire world is staring wide eyed at the jaws of peril.
The psychological science of spirituality is bang opposite to the above. At the substratum level consciousness oozes with sheer greatness and this is its most natural state. They further opine that Yoga that purifies our thinking and austerities that uplift our activities not only glorify world humanity but by imbibing divine greatness one can reach the highest peak of soul progress. All this is not just theoretical talk because world history fully agrees with it. Glorious men of the spiritual arena have not only uplifted themselves individually but that from the world standpoint too their contributions have been gigantic. Within Indian culture and tradition those principles that nourish inner greatness have always ruled the roost. As a result greatness abounds right from intellectually brilliant people and social activities. In turn its joyous dividends have been shared with the entire world.
While keeping in mind the creation of a bright world future the crying need of the hour is to place before world human beings the unacceptable conclusions of material Psychology that inadvertently encourages animalistic living on the one hand and the apt and utility value of spiritual Psychology. It is with the help of spiritual Psychology that ideals will flow into the thinking of the entire world akin to ancient eras and the result of joyous living will follow suit.
It goes without saying that modern research in the field of Psychology has unearthed many facts which say that consciousness at its very roots is greatness manifest. The only error seen is that while describing this fact a lot of illusions have crept in and thus many biased people continue to latch on to lowliness. Today it is most required that dark clouds that have enveloped modern Psychology be dispelled totally and instead create an atmosphere of research that first tries to understand the greatness of consciousness and then finding ways of advancing it sacredly. If a long lasting bright future of the world is to manifest this must be executed in totality. It is well known that the flow and ebb of greatness or mediocrity of philosophical tenets are responsible for wholesome or lowly world activities. Further in order to herald a radiant future all deluded concepts in the field of spirituality too will have to be uprooted and those principles that augment human glory which would benefit mankind both materially and spiritually be encouraged worldwide. In this context if psychological sciences can be researched into again on a new footing those facts and principles will definitely emerge which can raise human glory to that of Satyuga or the Golden Age. These underlying principles doubtlessly exist but what is required is that they be freed from the mesh of deluded concepts. If great world thinkers show willingness to take up this mighty task know for sure that a very new viewpoint of soul wisdom will emerge and its wondrous result will help in neo creation of this era.
For this it is not as though quite a lot of things need to be done. The manner in which modern psychologists have depicted the human psyche which gives so much information that assert spiritual aspects that there is no need to disown them. We need to do only this wherein while analyzing modern Psychology experimental findings those biased and prejudiced elements must totally be proved false. This can be done very easily because truth is so invincible that with a little bit of its help one can stand up on ones own after having experienced a fall. In fact a lot of effort is needed to prove falsehood to be truth but certainly not the other way around.
The general aspect of psychological science is thought science. The power of thought is limitless. In fact our life flow is entirely at the mercy of our thought center. Within the human community differences as far as greatness, lowliness and uselessness is perceived. These are the result of our beliefs and reactions of our thought process. To a certain extent the direction of our life depends on the type of atmosphere, contact, advice and desire and yet in the ultimate analysis it is our predominant beliefs that count a great deal. Much before hand our mindset is created on the basis of these beliefs. In this world exist, mountains of goodness and evil. What ever attracts us makes our psyche of that sort too. Whatever is not liked can never enter our mind. A desirable atmosphere, advice and society augment oneness and thus leave imprints behind. And the remnant undesirable element on being ignored returns from where it came.
Thoughts give our intellect a direction of cogitation. Where there is a desire its information, mode of attaining it and required means to do so come unasked in our life. Thus in actuality life’s flow is nothing but a manifestation of our thought flow. Lest we fully understand the nature and influence of this great force we would not waste time and effort in changing external situations. Instead our focus will be on purifying our psyche and making it one pointed. This will positively transform our inner personality and thus either external situations become more conducive or that even if they do not change our psyche is so strong that we remain calm and unaffected. What is ironical is that although world humanity uses thought power in a big way yet they are unaware as to how one can keep it well managed and make optimum use of it. It is true that thoughts ‘boss’ over our life yet it is even more true that if our Prajna (divine intellect) awakens it can aptly manage our thought process and help us live a blissful life of both material and spiritual progress. Uplifting and downfall are mere sweet and bitter fruits (reactions) of the tree of thought. In neo creation endeavors efforts to augment comforts and pleasure are given more importance. Despite this, what is more required is that every layman be taught the method of thought purification and transformation. Man indeed is the author of his fate. Within this precept lies the secret of transforming our very thinking so positively that our chariot of life can march ahead on the royal path of advancement and thus touch the highest peak of glory. But if we insist on adhering to vile thinking and lowly activities the result is bound to be stress and pain and the clouds of dire situations will loom large in our life. This is how man plays a role in authoring his fate and hence future.
We may make many other kinds of effort so as to uproot dire situations and augment joy and material comforts in our life. And yet it should be noted that along with this it is extremely important that every layman be encouraged to fully imbibe goodness of character and his very thinking. If this aspect is ignored know for sure that all other endeavors will be a sheer waste of time and energy and that our goal will run miles away from us like a mirage in a dessert. Assuming you have become very wealthy despite harboring lowly thinking how do you think you will make wholesome use of it? In fact this very wealth due to tainted thinking will make you perform vile actions (alcohol/drug addiction, illegal actions etc) which will be the cause of your imminent downfall in life. Today it is indeed a sorry state of affairs that the science of thinking which encourages imbibing of great human values lies in an ignored state. There are many elements in society that are known to encourage erroneous beliefs which in turn incite lowly and tainted thinking. And hence it is imperative that this undesirable situation be transformed for the better. The science of thinking must be researched into on a totally new platform. Today’s erroneous thinking that lowliness and criminal tendencies is the only way to amass wealth and fame must be cut asunder from its very roots. How do thoughts based on culture and civility help generate material and spiritual grandeur? How does tainted thinking akin to acid and fire sparks melt your wealth to naught? If these questions are answered with sound logic, rationality and apt scientific proof know for sure that that very tainted thinking which has destroyed world humanity’s peace of mind can be uprooted totally. Instead wholesome thinking will start ruling our psyche and thus true human glory can be ours for a very long time span to come. As a result both material and spiritual bliss will abound in the entire world. It is the duty of great thinkers in the field of Psychology to set up such a strong foundation of principles that augment greatness and thus welcome the advent of a radiant world future in the 21st century.
Ahead of this are 2 more legs. The first leg asks the question: How shall we uproot tainted psychic imprints that have gathered from past innumerable births and replace them with sacred ones? The second question is: An abundant storehouse of ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER) and great aspirations exists in our psyche and hence how do we activate them and make optimal use of tem for world welfare? These 2 basis need to be unfolded akin to the spiritual aspect of thought science. The roots of psychic taints are generally very deep and powerful. Via scriptural studies we can understand the blissful results of a good character and sorrow which is the result of vile thinking. Despite this it is a very difficult job to transform personalities that latch on like a leech to erroneous beliefs and habits. Neither do tainted actions get destroyed and nor does one agree to imbibe wholesome activities. Under such circumstances our effort to understand and teach others the importance of sacred thinking goes down the drain. Very much akin to this great difficulties are faced when we try to augment our will power and soul force, when we try to awaken latent potentials via focus and mental resolve and making our character extraordinary from its present mediocre state. Simply understanding the deep import of ones mental resolve or will power cannot render it potent. If inner radiance refuses to bloom what is the way in which the psyche can transform totally?
