...and I thought...


Just sharing my views in a different format so that it becomes interesting to read. Trying here to share what I thought before I met Babaji, which if looked upon carefully, has a message in every sentence; and that is my intention to convey through here. 

The "I" used in this article is a representation of an individual.

Here I am in binding with the one truth that Babaji teaches, but before coming here I had some foolish thoughts and myths. Before coming here...
  • I thought I would always be discriminated on religion, caste, creed, color, position and status.
  • I thought I had to learn and read scriptures and prayers because it was enforced on me.
  • I thought I had to compromise on ethical values to live in the world.
  • I thought through books or stories that saints and pure people only lived in the past.
  • I thought Christ's healing powers, miracles, unconditional love, forgiveness was only reserved for saints.
  • I thought that I was doomed with whatever came to me in the name of fate and destiny.
  • I thought that God would be only found after I die.
  • I thought that I must fear God because he is powerful and judgmental!
  • I thought I was at the mercy of religious leaders.
  • I thought I was helpless and alone in this huge world.
  • I thought everything had to be manipulated in order to survive.
  • I thought it was necessary to have God's darshan to be blessed.
  • I thought only doctors could heal an ailment.
  • I thought I had to convince everyone by force to make others understand.
  • I thought for peace of mind one had to go to a temple, church or mosque.
  • I thought I was a poor soul tormented by everyone with no fault of mine.
  • I thought my ego, arrogance and anger were my power.
  • I thought that total spirituality was supposed to be only in old age.
  • I thought I would offend one God if I thought about or liked another God (before knowing that God is one).
  • I thought all religions had their own Gods.
  • I thought other religion people were foolish in what they practiced.
  • I thought that I always had priority over animals and plants and could do whatever I pleased with them.
  • I thought it was okay to feel victimized and brood in self-pity.
  • I thought saints, masters and renunciates lived a pitiful life.
  • I thought unconditional love was love without knowing that it was actually acceptance and forgiveness.
  • I thought only the modern music could bring me happiness and enjoyment.
  • I thought all spiritual people are of the same mentality and understanding.
  • I thought everybody under the same guru or religion practiced exactly what they were supposed to and thus were all in the same level of understanding and consciousness.
  • I thought it was okay to preach what you know even if I did not follow it at that moment.
  • I thought that people and circumstances were responsible for my mood and happiness or sorrow.
  • I thought the only way of being alive was to eat food.
  • I thought God was out, that he sat in heaven or in temples and churches.
  • I thought the more the age the more one is evolved spiritually.
  • I thought children had lot to be taught good things since they did not know anything.
  • I thought the beauty of people was in external appearance.
  • I thought the more I read books, the more wisdom I will have.
  • I thought only females cry; that it was wrong to cry, especially if one was a male.
  • I thought nonvegetarian food was the tastiest food to relish.
  • I thought even if I ate nonveg food I was not contributing to killing it because somebody else had killed it.
  • I thought I should expect to see Jesus in church and a hindu god in temples and never viceversa.
  • I thought by just thinking positive and reading about the same could change my thinking permanently.
  • I thought forgiving my past sins was only in the hands of God and this was somewhere after the end of physical life.
  • I thought idols and statues were God.
  • I thought meditation was only for peace of mind.
  • I thought it was the duty of my parents to take care of all my needs and mistakes.
  • I thought pranayama was done only to fill lungs with more oxygen.
  • I thought it was okay to worry because that was my way of planning and take measures for the future.
  • I thought for every ailment doctor and medicines were the only way out.
  • I thought a guru was just another preacher or a representative of a religion.
  • I thought it was the world or other people who were bad and not the reflection of the flaws in me.
  • I thought it was me who was doing everything.
Whatever I thought, I never thought that I would one day write what I thought about the things that I thought :)
(just a pinch of humor....lol)
