A stubborn mind which is lazy and dull will not change, and such change–i.e., change of ideas, change of lifestyle, change of behavior, etc.–is what life really is, is it not…?? Weak minds, minds which enslave themselves to others, minds of unrestrained egos, minds which do not really live in harmony and love create illusions out of fear–i.e., fear of loneliness, fear of an afterlife, fear of Karma, fear of being left out, fear of not being popular like the others, etc. etc..
Beliefs without actual, personal, proof are the MOST damaging nonsense to the human mind, it robs you of clarity and depth of understanding. And beliefs are not just induced from childhood into your subconscious, forming your personality and the way you think and see the world as a grown up; but they are also greatly reinforced and designed by the TV you watch, the books you read, the activities with friends, your family traditions, your nationalistic views, etc.
It all works subtly in your mind, so subtly you do not see it perhaps, but it is so strong that it influences all your views, choices, it dulls your thinking, it robs your mind from all clarity and deep understanding due to a heavily conditioned brain.
People do not see this, and yet they want peace and love in the world, and yet they want an awakening in themselves; however, they want this peace and love in the world when their own minds are not peaceful and full of true, innocent love, they are full of beliefs of the masses based on fear, they are lazy enough to not question. This is not love, but it is the opposite.
This ignorance is violence against themselves, it is the opposite of self-love because they do not love themselves enough to live based on reality and facts, they let ignorance rule their lives.
So, always question EVERYTHING society and specially religion says. Always question how you think and feel about something, about anything. Always question. Question, question, question. Until the day you die. Your mind then must become supple, innocent and creative as the child’s, empty and full of new energy, able to grasp reality as it really is; thus, your mind can only understand and absorb an awakening if it is this superior mind.
“And, through acceptance of belief, do we understand ourselves? On the contrary. A belief, religious or political, obviously hinders the understanding of ourselves. It acts as a screen through which we look at ourselves. And can we look at ourselves without beliefs? If we remove these beliefs, the many beliefs that one has, is there anything left to look at? If we have no beliefs with which the mind has identified itself, then the mind, without identification, is capable of looking at itself as it is, rich, pure, innocent, alert, truly intelligent; and then, surely there is the beginning of the understanding of oneself, the beginning of the superior mind.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti.
