"Those who worship ignorance enter into darkness,
and they who worship knowledge enter into greater darkness".
- Isha Upanishad ( part of Vedas )
( describes the state of mind necessary to know god )
|The reset button is a standard|
button on desktop computers
|Reminds me of maths tutor|
laughing at maths and me.
As the years went by, the awesomeness of resetting the mind continued to amaze me. I was lucky in finding friends, books and having different experiences which time to time reminded me to challenge long standing assumptions and to reset my thought patterns. I had found a way to continously improve and evolve myself by pressing the reset button. Having gained knowledge of the reset button, I felt superior and wise somehow... as I saw myself free and others as prisoners of their own thoughts patterns.
However, it was only later that I realised that the thought of thinking myself as free was another thought pattern in which I had got stuck in. I realised this as I dwelt and read the meaning of the above mentioned verse in the upanishads ( part of vedas )
|The laughing Buddha.|
A symbol of happiness or
laughing at people who
think they are wise??
As the explanation sunk into me, I was reminded of the statue of the laughing Buddha I had in my office which I use as a paper weight. He began to look more and more like my laughing Maths tutor..prodding me to press the reset button again...
