The organs of the body, broadly, are the heart, lungs, stomach, liver, large and small intestines, kidneys, and reproductive organs.
We naturally think that the heart plays the most important role as it pumps blood throughout the whole body. However, from the perspective of the organs, there is no such thought. The heart plays the role of the heart, that is, to circulate blood. The lungs play the role of breathing. The stomach plays the role of digestion by breaking food into small particles.
What if each of the organs fights each other like humans because they have their own selfish minds? What if each of them says that they are more important and better? Probably, our body cannot be maintained.
Organs do not have their individual minds and silently do their own role by themselves. If individual humans also do their own role diligently – like the organs – without the self and for the whole, our society would become a much better society worth living in, wouldn’t it?
A Sense Of Inferiority
Human desires differ from person to person but every desire is manifested from feelings of inferiority: of feeling lower or having less. He who lacks love seeks love and he who lacks money chases money. The powerless seek power and he who has had his pride trampled on seeks to regain his pride. What one felt he lacked during his developmental years becomes his sense of inferiority. For example, if a woman suffers abuse from her mother-in-law, she will in turn be harsh to her daughter-in-law because she has that mind. One pursues what he desires and that arises from the innumerable minds that he has; they are all expressions of his mind.
There is a saying that things will happen according to the mind one has. This means that one lives exactly according to the mind that he has taken in, no more and no less. What one eats is excreted through urine and feces but man has never excreted any of the countless minds he has consumed from birth and he lives bearing its heavy burden, suffering, worries and anxieties.
They are all pictures taken of what belongs to the world. Man has only consumed these pictures without ever taking any out; he is dead in the world of that mind, which itself is a picture. He strives to achieve within that picture world and he lives according to the script of that mind, therefore all of it are false deeds and an illusion.
The world beyond the world, that is, beyond the human mind that has been eliminated, is the true land; a real world that is not a picture. When this real world is inside one’s mind, then his feelings of inferiority will disappear and he will have only the highest mind of Truth. He who is born in this place is God; he is one who has shed all human mind and he is one who is free. It is because of the pictures of one’s mind that there are conflicts and obstacles while living in the world. When this framework of mind is gone, then those conflicts and obstacles also disappear and one will be able to live better than he did before.
Acceptance is the absence of judgment and discrimination; when one sees things just as they are, when he just lives. If one has a framework of pictures in his mind, then many things catch in his mind and bother him, which cause him to blame others and the world. In the world, there is no one who blames himself rather than others. But because your mind exists, everything is your fault. At the time when the people of the world can blame themselves then everyone will have an accepting mind; people will be able to live without conflict and everyone will live well. When man eliminates the false world that he has eaten, he will live a life of universal order and he will be able to live well because he will no longer have feelings of inferiority.
When people act with the mind originating from inferiority, they will act as the worst evil; those actions will only bring evil as their result. Evil begets evil; evil will end up dying within evil. Within evil, evil will live with pain and heavy burden.
