Swami Satchidananda's Weekly Words of Wisdom
- "Create Selfless Thoughts"
"Many people think, `What is the use of
me controlling my mind - making it blank without any
thoughts? Am I going to be like a stone?'
Learn to control the thoughts so you can create any
thought you want. This mastery makes the mind
your tool. You can fulfill all your responsibilities
and serve humanity greatly by achieving this control.
If, after finding tranquility, you go out to
serve, you are still creating thoughts - but thoughts
of serving others. They are selfless thoughts.
Even if such thoughts arise in the mind they
won't affect its tranquility. If you can make your mind
pure, then the whole world is your friend. That's
why dedicated people never have worries, anxiety
or restlessness. They are permanently joyous.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
