Thought for the day -21st October 2004

見るものすべてに神を見ることができないのであれば、盲目の方がずっとましです。耳障りな音に気が惹かれてしまうならば、聾の方がはるかに優れています。感覚的な欲求に引き込まれないように、つねに見張っていなければなりません。感覚は、悟りへの道を促し、あなたの欲望を昇華させるものでなければなりません。感覚は、神への道の手助けとならなければなりません。われわれの考えることはすべて、見るもの、聞くこと、嗅ぐものに影響されます。われわれは、感覚器官をとりわけ耳と目に注意を払って、コントロールしなければなりません。

If the eye does not help you to visualize God in everything you see, it is far better to be blind. If your ears drag you towards filthy cacophony, it is far better to be deaf. The senses should not be encouraged to plunge you into sensual muck. They must serve your real interests and sublimate your appetites. They must help you to dwell on God. All our thoughts are influenced by what we see, hear or smell. We must try to control the sense organs, especially the ears and the eyes.
