SATSANG OF SWAMI AMAR JYOTI

HOW THE MIND WORKS
by Swami Amar Jyoti

Human nature has two trends: upward or downward. Normally speaking it is easier to go down than to go up. Naturally one’s own efforts, though capable potentially, are not generally toward upward growth. We like to obtain whatever is easy and pleasant; whatever is difficult or problematic we do not want. Basically or intrinsically that is not wrong. Spirit, Light is our true nature, and the refuge or rest we desire. Having given that up, we now have to do what is difficult and uncomfortable. Therefore, to make the process inspiring and interesting, we need Satsang, holy company, holy books, holy places, natural surroundings, and silence through which the mind becomes quieted.

When we first start doing these things, our mind revolts and reacts. Whatever the negative or positive reactions, they should not be suppressed. It is a simple way of being cleansed so that whatever impurities are there will come out. This cleansing process is necessary so that our practices become interesting, encouraging and inspiring. Otherwise religion or beliefs can become monotonous and mechanical. The external world of senses is only replaced by certain dogmas, traditions and beliefs; therefore we do not reach the elevating point of spirituality. As you go on purifying yourself more and more, negative thoughts begin to subside and you will feel joyful. The journey should be joyful. In between it does become melancholy, static, or kind of complacent. These experiences come, but the duty of a seeker is to carry on, whatever the results may be.
