train of thought


Recommended Posts

A Gurmukh pyari-o said 'by thinking wrong thoughts people make

themselves ill, they make themselves depressed with their

negativity'.

In one respect, there is little difference between a GurMukh and a

ManMukh. Both are attacked by the 5 enemies, both have suffered

traumatic situations, both recall happy times and sad times in their

minds.

The difference is the way they deal with the attack. The ManMukh,

the untrained warrior, has no idea that the thought that has come

into their mind is an enemy. The grab hold of it, think about it and

jumping into the carriage they ride the Train of Thought to its

bitter end.

My friend at Uni loved listening to depressing songs, he said it

made it feel sad and he liked

that!!!

Mention money and relatives and unreturned loans, and this other

person i know will jump on the train of thought and ride all the way

to the point where they are as mad as hell at the injustice of it

all!.

Another person says some people live their life, but i am enduring

it. I guess cause of my sins I was born to suffer...all I think

about is running away, running away, running away is the only words

in my mind day and night. One bad thought comes along and these

people jump onto it and ride it to the bitter end, depressing the

hell out of themselves.

So how does the GurMukh deal with it? Firstly, the Gurmukh has

ridden this train many times in the past. BUT HE KNOWS WHERE IT

ENDS UP SO HE DOESNT RIDE IT AGAIN. As soon as the negative thought

comes he doesnt cling on to it, he watches it...calls out its

name ...YOU'RE ANGER...yes I've seen you before..you can go because

i havent got time for you ...only time for Waheguru Waheguru.

The Gurmukh has had bad experiences and when something triggers off

the memory, she doesnt wallow in it like a pig rolling in the mud,

she puts her foot down and says 'I REFUSE TO FOLLOW THIS TRAIN OF

THOUGHT' and she does Waheguru Waheguru.

Ultimately, each little battle that is won leads to winning the war,

these thoughts dont come back very often..they know they've got no

chance..plus there's no room for them because Waheguru Waheguru

occupies the mind.

No-one else can fight your internal battles, no matter how hard the

time you are going through is...ONLY YOU AND GURU CAN FIGHT IT...but

you have to FIGHT. Your hard time is not worse than Guru Arjun Dev

ji sitting on the hot plate, and he said 'Your Will is Sweet, I beg

for your Name'... so dont lose faith in God for giving you Dukh.

You are drowining in the ocean of fire : Desire, and only by

holding onto SatGuru ji will you escape...Naam is your Support,

without it you will drown.
