Mysteries of human mind




We have begun a pilgrimage today. We have also chosen a path for it. Every one walks on some path or the other. We too have been doing so. Every path is paved with footprints, but ours is a path which has no footprints. Footprints on a path suggest that someone has already walked on it and we are tempted to follow the footprints. The absence of footprints on our path means that we are not going to follow anybody. Ours is a path without footprints, and, therefore, there is no question of our following anybody.

Thoughts leave their traces on the mind

Actions which we had done in the past have also left their traces on our minds which assume the form of habits or predilections. Words which we speak or hear also do the same. Thoughts, actions and words disappear but the traces they leave on our minds remain active.

There is no possibility of our following or imitating any body because we have chosen a path which has no footprints. Those who walk on other paths get attached to their own way of life, and, therefore, leave their traces and footprints behind them and others of the same nature imitate and follow them. Their lives are lives of indulgence. On the other hand, those who walk on this path which we have chosen for ourselves are aspirants who have given up all kinds of attachments, and, therefore, have not and will not leave any traces of footprints behind for others to imitate. The pilgrim on this path will have to rely on his own resources and exertion. A path on which there are no footprints is the best path because it is free from all the traces of the past which might divert the attention of the pilgrim.

Our only aim

in walking on this path is to gain might. Therefore, let us see; let us look within. Let us see soul itself. This may appear be something queer. What the soul which perceives itself? Who ceive? It is perplexing question. The answer is when the soul divided, one part of it becomes the seer the other part of the object of perception.

See your breath

See your mind. See your body. See the life-force in you. See your aura. I am sure you would like to know if your breath is your soul. Perhaps you would also like to know if your body is your soul. You may very well ask if your mind or the aura which surrounds your body and which is generated by your body or the vital force in you is your soul. If you thought over these questions a bit seriously, you will come to the conclusion that your breath, your body, your mind, the aura emanating from your body and the vital force in it are your soul. If the vital force in the body were not the soul, we will not be able to distinguish between a living and a dead body. If the living body were not the soul, we shall not be able to distinguish it from dead body. If the mind were not the soul, there will be no difference between thinking and non-thinking beings. Every one of these is, therefore, the soul.
Mysteries of Human Mind

We cannot understand the body correctly if we did not feel and understand breath. We cannot understand the mind without understanding the body. We cannot perceive the aura around the body without understanding the body. We cannot understand the vital force until we have seen and known the aura. We cannot come across the conscious substance which is the end of our journey until we have known and understood the vital force. This is the span of our journey. We will have to traverse the entire course in the very order given above in order to arrive at the stage of self realization, at that which is the subtlest, i e., at our Existence.
