MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 16-1-1.
Chapter 16-Thought Creates The World-1-1.
1. Thought, The Origin Of Everything : 1.
Everything in the material universe about us had its origin first in thought.
From this, it took its form.
Every castle, every statue, every painting, every piece of mechanism-in short, everything-had its birth, its origin, first in the mind of the one who formed it before it received its material expression or embodiment.
Mind has got various preoccupations.
When an artist begins to draw a picture on the canvas, he draws the picture out of the material preconceived by the mind.
After all, the world is merely an idea or thought.
Just as a seed begins to germinate at its proper time and place, so also the seer (knower) appears as the visible through the Sankalpa of the mind (the visible being no other than the seer itself).
When the mind ceases to think, the world vanishes and there is bliss indescribable.
When the mind begins to think, immediately the world reappears and there is suffering.
