You can’t think your way to love.
You can’t think your way to a great poem.
Or to creating a great art-piece.
Yes, we can have success in thinking up many things…….and, because of that, many times we think that if we just think clever enough we’ll succeed.
But what will we succeed in?
We can’t think our way to real happiness.
We can’t think our way to absolute peace.
We certainly can’t think our way into the Divine Presence.
That’s because all these things require the opposite of working hard mentally.
We achieve these things when we absolutely STOP thinking – and allow ourselves to simply BE.
At that moment of total surrender, of completely giving up trying to think our way toward anything of real value, we experience absolute self-realisation for that is love; and we also experience complete self-empowerment for that is Truth.
Don’t get me wrong: I’m not dismissing the value of thinking…….I’m just reminding us all that thinking isn’t the path to enlightenment: not thinking is!
So……next time you want to find peace or happiness or simply want to fall in love…..STOP THINKING about how you’re going to do it.
Just let it happen!
Because you can’t think your way to peace or happiness or love!
It’s what you are!!
Hugs and love to each of you,
