Monotony is not life, monotony is the nature of the mind. That is, if you left your mind loose, without knowing how to employ it. So, if you do not know how to use it, the mind will use you, and consume you.
So, the whole spiritual process is just that. Every moment of your life, if you just look up, you’re seeing a new piece of the sky, because the Earth is rotating, isn’t it? Every moment if you look up, you’re seeing a new piece of the sky, it’s very exciting! The Earth is spinning all the time – not one moment, same old thing anywhere, everything is changing. If you’re alive to life, you will never know any monotony in your life. If you’re not alive to life, but you just live in your mind, then everything will be monotonous, because mind is repetitive in nature.
Once your mind is repetitive, you will neither know peace, nor joy, nor wisdom in your life
People who are just bored, and dejected, and suffering the monotony of life – people come to just a week-long, or a weekend program, and suddenly everything looks fresh for them because the cataract on their eyes has been cleared. So, the ‘cataracted’ mind has been cleared, and suddenly they find everything is beautiful for them all of a sudden. Particularly people who go through the Bhava Spandana, for them, they go out and suddenly they’re excited about everything – the same old things.
So, what is old essentially comes because of your mind, otherwise, there is nothing old in existence. Modern science is proving to you beyond any doubt. there is no such thing as old anywhere – everything is reverberating, and creating itself all the time. You know, rock is pulsating with new life every moment, but the old exists only in the mind, because mind functions out of past memory.
Once your mind is repetitive, you will neither know peace, nor joy, nor wisdom in your life. It’s time you meditate, and go beyond this repetitiveness.
