What Happens When You Die?

A long time ago, far far away, I had a chance meeting with a Wise Woman.

She became a good friend.

Until she died of cancer a few years later.

She was the Librarian at the Melbourne Theosophical Society.

Their Headquarters is in Adyar, India.

With a motto of ‘There is no religion higher than truth’ they encourage the study of all religions.

I was in.

I threw myself into my own study of all spiritual philosophies.

Including what happens when we die.

Today I feel that our soul survives this lifetime.

And is reborn.

Lately I’ve been thinking:

Do I really want to leave this beautiful world?

With all its problems?

What if my next life is on an alien planet with no trees or birds or the smell of cut grass?

What if it’s all black-and-white without colour?

Or what if it’s a world of thought without physical form?

This is not such a bad place to live if only we could clean up the mess.

The poverty.

The destruction.

So let’s do it.

All of us who care.

You and me.

We already live in a world of thought.

Our thoughts need physical bodies to work though.

How can we clean up our beautiful planet alone?

Others are trying.

But how can we do it alone.

I know the answer:

With our thoughts.

Trouble is, isn’t it our thoughts that have created and maintained today’s messed up world.

From the pollution to the violence.

Physically others are doing all they can.

Then there’s our thoughts.

It’s your thoughts, together with mine and others, that could do the trick.

With our thought we can be there, everywhere, in a thought.

We can avoid the cruel television dramas.

The violent movies.

The computer war games.

The selective brain washing evening news.

We can replace that with our thoughts of the world we want, not the world that amuses us.

“With our thoughts we make the world,” the Buddha said.

Is it our only hope to create the world we want.

Think big but let’s think change.

Think about it.

Love and peace.

How Hard Is It To Change The World For The Better?

We could do it just by thinking.

There’s nothing to do: except thinking.

Eric Clapton sang about it.

Okay, he was singing about a woman.

Or maybe not.

But you and I can do it by thinking.

“With our thoughts we make the world,” said the Buddha.

So much of his thought had a similar message.

What we think is what we get.

The trouble is, do we think about the world we want to have or do we think about what entertains us?

Isn’t the world we have right now pretty much the kind of world we watch for entertainment?

The dramas.

The violent movies.

The war games.

The evening news.

What we chat about.

There are ethical views out there than can bring into reality the kind of world we want.

If we want peace, for example, how peaceful are our thoughts?

“Thoughts are things,” wrote Napoleon Hill as the title of the opening of the first chapter of his bestselling book ‘Think & Grow Rich’.

I’m pleased to live in a world where today there are many people and many movements focussed on ethical, world changing topics.

Permaculture is making a difference in a more sustainable world with respect for our planet.

We can surely do the same.

“We but mirror the world,” said Mahatma Gandhi.

So what are you thinking?

Love and Peace.

My Story Of How Just Thinking Can Change Your Life.

It figures.

We’re thinking in every waking hour.

And we’re reacting to our thoughts during most waking hours.

But do we ever think that we’re constantly connecting the two?

We think hungry so we go to get something to eat.

We need something and we act to satisfy that need.

We feel a desire for something, or someone, and we take steps to satisfy our need.

Don’t our thoughts always precede an action?

The act always follows a thought.

Our thought always stimulates a physical response.

Think about it.

Doesn’t it follow, then, that we can have a deliberate thought of action that will result in a physical response?

Cause and effect.

The thought is the cause and the action is the effect.

What if we also apply the idea to karma.

As you sow so shall you reap.

So what if your thoughts create your life?

Then if your reality is thought then what if your karma is also based on your thoughts rather than your actions.

What if your karma isn’t about your actions, good or bad, within a certain society’s morals, but one’s thoughts within a much broader view.

Is it rather the thought, the intent, that draws the karma?

Think about it.

What if we get what we think.

And what if all the thoughts we have during a single day are creating our reality?

What if?

A scary thought.

But what if it’s true.

What do we think about?

Do we ever think about that?

What if the stories we get in the movies, the computer games, the television dramas and the TV news, are all creating our reality?

Are the standout thoughts and beliefs we’re left with from the media throughout the day actually creating our world?

The Buddha said, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world..”

Is that what he meant?

So on that basis, are our thoughts and our beliefs really creating our life, our world, our destiny?

What if?

What Happens To Your Thoughts?

What are you thinking right now?

Is it what you did last night?

Your many problems?

Your money worries?

Is it what you found disturbing on the news this morning?

Or the night before?

Maybe the movie you watched last night.

Or all of the above.

But what no-one is telling us is that we all may be getting the very thoughts on our minds, good or bad, without knowing it.

In our daily lives.

In the world.

What if our thoughts create our reality.

All of them.

“With our thoughts we make the world,” said the Buddha.

Pretty outrageous.

But what if it’s true.

“Thoughts are things,” was the title of the first chapter in Napoleon Hill’s famous world bestselling book ‘Think & Grow Rich.’

It was a very materialistic book about how our thoughts can make us rich.

And I would add, or poor, or sick, or unhappy, or anything we might think at any time.

Doesn’t that make you think?

Aren’t we all a little alarmed at the world right now?

I am.

Which makes me want to shout out to the world:

“What on earth have we all been thinking?”

Do you agree?

Think about it.

Like and follow my blog to show you agree.

Best wishes,

Neil.
