The Power of Wise Discrimination


Wield the sword of Viveka

A thought comes to your mind, “I am very much disturbed.” Then the intellect steps in saying, “Are you really disturbed, or are you allowing yourself to get disturbed?” A second thought arises, “Oh! I am getting bored.” Then Viveka (power of wise discrimination) will say, “Are you really getting bored, or are you allowing yourself to get bored?”

Thus when the sword of contemplation works, you will be astonished. No sooner you look at your thought in this manner, “Oh! I am allowing myself to get bored, is it necessary to get bored?” If it is not necessary, you will find that those thoughts will disappear instantly.

When a thought emerges, “That person is disturbing me,” then Viveka will think, “I am giving an opportunity to that man to disturb me. Should I allow him to do so?” When you ask this question to yourself, the sword of Viveka works. When the sword of contemplation starts operating, a question will immediately arise, “Should I give him that opportunity?” The answer will come from Viveka, “I will not allow him to disturb me.” Then the person in front of you will not be able to disturb you and you will see that you have stopped getting disturbed, you have stopped becoming unhappy. This is the sword of contemplation. Whenever thoughts arise, this sword will operate and a division between the truth and untruth will occur.

In this way, with the help of Viveka, you will be able to bring every belief, tendency and pattern to light. These patterns and tendencies will then begin to break. With the awakening of the power of discrimination, nothing will disturb you ever.
