Law of Attraction: Supreme Secret
Conclusion: Towards Enlightenment
Try to imagine the following scenario.
Science has found a way for humans
to feed themselves like plants do,
that is, photosynthesis,
absorbing water from the ground
and carbon dioxide from the air.
Famine or lack of food is a thing of the past.
The only problem is that to take advantage
of this new technique,
you must never eat again
because that will cause a chemical reaction in the digestive system
that kills you instantly.
If so, have you used this new technique?
Would you give up all the tempting flavors on your tongue
– the sour,
salty, sweet sensations of your favorite foods
– in exchange for the ability to never need to eat again?
Likewise, if researchers invented a drug
that could wipe out all desires
and instantly bring you to a high spiritual level,
would you take it?
Nine out of ten people would not choose any of these
and the only one who would agree
to give up all desires
and food would have to hesitate for a long time.
We get so attached to the pleasures
of sensations and desires
that come through the six sensory doors
that we forget that true happiness is found
when our minds are at peace.
We live day by day with all the things
we love constantly affecting our senses,
but our happiest moments often come
when we lie down peacefully
and still at the end of the day
and then fall asleep a deep sleep
until the next morning.
It is certain that the peace found in the enlightened state
It will be different from the peace found in a deep sleep,
but the process of reasoning is employed here
to show the degree to which happiness arises
in the state of mind to pure serenity of spirit.
The pain we endure is the result
of the very selfishness
and lust that have had a brutal impact on ourselves
and the world.
Millions of people have to take sleeping pills
and around the world,
around 10 billion tranquilizers are produced each year.
This number is only calculated on prescriptions
and does not include illegal drugs.
Either way, the two substances are produced
for the same purpose
– to prevent feelings of suffering.
It is also incorrect to assume that the sensory doors
we refer to will lead to feelings of anger or greed
and lead people to commit heinous crimes such as robbery,
rape or even criminal acts.
Bad actions are not as easy to detect
as taking advantage of others.
These types of actions come about
because our own minds are still weak
and we are reborn to get back the karma we have caused others.
Living so much depends on the pleasant sensations that arise
from the perception of the senses
that are not very different from the use of drugs;
we will have to increase the dose
and frequency of use to satisfy the addiction.
When the first feeling of pleasure arises,
thinking, and consciousness also arise
and the addiction or habituation process begins.
When we are then exposed to a stimulating situation,
we become more accustomed to it
and the feeling of pleasure therefore diminishes.
Self-centered thinking and always wanting new sensations.
The cycle never ends.
Nothing grows faster than human ambition
and when we lack the things that bring us joy,
we end up in rehab like addicts go
to physical rehab centers,
but all mental addicts have to psychotherapy.
A deeper look into the nature of human
thought will teach us that ambition awakened
by sensations is poison.
With this knowledge,
we will approach the question
I addressed at the beginning of the chapter
with a completely different perspective.
We will readily adopt the technique
to never depend on cravings again
and we will swallow the pill that promises an end to all desires
and all suffering, immediately!
However, the truth remains that there is no pill that can bring an end
to all our ambitions.
The only right way to get to this final dot is
to practice present-moment awareness
and gain a clear understanding of the nature
of all things and phenomena.
Perception acts as a gatekeeper to the sensory doors.
On the way in,
it prevents shapes,
and tactile sensations from giving rise
to mental feelings and aspirations.
On the way out,
our awareness pushes feelings tinged with selfishness,
and ambition out of our minds
and the effects on the world are received
through the five senses.
If a feeling affects the world
through what we say or do,
our perception will be certain
that it is harmless and positive.
If we lose our awareness,
our greed, our aspiration
and our distorted view of the truth will easily distort it.
Just a glance at the headline of any daily newspaper
It can see evidence of this.
If you practice present moment awareness,
especially in meditation,
which focuses on observing body movements,
