.The Law of Attraction - Importance of Purity
Aquick recap - it is now clear that the Law of Attraction works at the level of Energy or Consciousness i.e. Thoughts and Feelings. YOU are the Soul / Energy that Thinks and Feels. Words and Actions are outer aspects, and while they're very important, majority of what's going on your life is by the virtue of your Thoughts, Feelings, Beliefs i.e. your overall Energy.
Have you ever experienced that when you step out of the house in a bad mood (or even an ordinary mood), your experiences are below-average or negative? That's because, what the soul carries, it receives.
The Catch with Repetition
An important aspect to the Law of Attraction is the CLARITY or PURITY in one's Thought that precisely attracts a desired result. The Thought does not need to be Repetitive, Forced, or Adamant. So, even if you naturally think of something ONCE, you REALLY REALLY like it, and leave it at that point in time, that's a Pure Thought. That Pure Thought manifests seamlessly, effortlessly, precisely, and accurately, and gives you a Satisfying Version of your Manifestation. You, then, roughly, recollect the times when you Thought about it first. This is exactly how intuitions work.
You may REPEATEDLY think about the Desire, or chant about the Desire, or talk about the Desire, or make Affirmations about it.
However, the catch with Repetition is that it is highly possible that you are repeating it, because you are MISSING it very much. And if "missing" is what your active consciousness is, the Law of Attraction will respond to you with situations that make you miss your Desire even more. As you may have guessed it correctly by now, the Law of Attraction works at the level of those secret, hidden Thoughts that you know but (on a light note) you are hiding from the outside world. My question to you is - Why would you re-think and re-think about your Desire if you're confident and sure that it's going to come true? It's the lack of confidence / Faith and incorrect Beliefs that makes one repeatedly think about a Desire.
There are two ways people repeatedly think about their Desires. This varies from Desire to Desire, and from one person to another. One way they think about it in a very natural and effortless way, because they're confident about it, and they have Faith in it. Another way they think about it with a very hollow, desperate, negative, and sad attitude. Can YOU tell me which way works?
Here are two real-life examples:
I booked my (and my mother's) very first International Flight Tickets to Thailand two months in advance. Despite there being A LOT OF time to think about it, first of all, the Desire itself (that of Travel) was a very very natural, newborn, and fresh Desire. There was pure excitement, confidence, curiosity in those two months. I thought a lot about it, visualized a lot about it, and this was done in the First Way (explained above). 100% Positive. That trip turned out to be 100% flawless. We had lots of fun. There were not a tinge of failures or flaws.
On the other hand, one day before meeting Madhuri Dixit, I was constantly WORRYING about whether I'll get a good, clear picture of the both of us looking into the camera. Well, I got more than what I could have I asked for - a video, many photos, and two autographs, BUT I did not get a proper picture of the both of us looking into the camera. That's how precisely the Law of Attraction works.
Is it required to constantly think about your Desire for it to come true? No, not at all. In fact, even one forced Thought makes it negative. If you end up in naturally thinking about that Desire every now and then, let those Thoughts only enhance and clarify your Desire to you. Keep it only at that.
Therefore, even if you practice Affirmations, if you're doing that from a place of hollowness and sadness or to make something happen, the manifestation of your Desire will either get delayed or distorted. Trust me on that one! If you've already developed a negative, obsessive thinking habit about a Desire, you must work on changing it, and that's where my Activities1 and 1:1 Interactions1 come into picture.
Are Intuitions Good or Bad?
Well, Intuitions are helpful, aren't they? Intuitions could be about good things or bad things, but they can help us prepare for the upcoming events, isn't it. Just that we need to train ourselves to listen to them (and act accordingly) more often.
An Intuition is a crystal clear thought, and is different from a general thought. We just need to quieten the mind and listen to our instincts. Purity of the mind plays a significant role in developing this power.
You may have experienced that when you don't speak about your Intuitive Thoughts to the other person, they come true, whereas if you speak about your Intuitive Thoughts, they hardly come true. That's because by the time you go into the mode of speaking them out, the beliefs of Impurity crawl in.
Importance of Purity in Thoughts
is the most important benefit of Purity.
Purity is nothing, but Clarity in Thoughts,
and that's enough to
live a life full of miracles.
Deep within... we all are pure, however, the presence of fear, insecurity, jealousy, competition, anger, and lust adulterate and impurify ourselves. That is why you may have observed some people who have everything, but are still feeling lonely and empty.
When you slow down in your mind, the Thoughts you produce are precise, and their manifestation is accurate and instantaneous. That is Purity.
You don't need to stop having Desires, but if you can slow down your thinking a bit, and focus on WHY you want all that you Desire, you will be much better on track. Therefore, Purity is not an obstacle or a stagnation of Desires or growth. It is self-empowerment and inner strengthening to remain so immovable and stable that your thoughtful desires are not adulterated or mixed with your Thoughts based on any kind of negativity.
We, humans, create one Pure Thought originally about what we want about a particular topic. We, then, pollute the Thought by JUSTIFYING that Desire. We then JUSTIFY it furthermore and further adulterate the Thought about that topic. We then get ANGRY that we are not getting it. We go into the modes of RESENTMENT and DESPAIR, and by now, we have impurified the Thought about that topic. We either don't get what we want, or we get it in an improper shape. However, nothing to worry about. Just clean up all the ongoing adulteration about that topic from your mind. Visualize yourself cleaning the mouth of a ketchup bottle. Then put a full stop there itself.
You may say it's very natural to repeatedly or continuously think about the things one wants in life. Well, it's not necessary at all. Just one Pure Thought is necessary and sufficient to create what you want exactly as you want it. However, even if you happen to think about that topic, gradually train yourself to think only positive and happily about that topic. If a Negative Thought (or as we can call it an 'OFF thought') is brought to the Mind, convert it to a Positive scenario by Self-talk / Affirmations / Visualization (or any other Mind Exercise1). It is very easy, but it does require some consistent Self-work for it to be effectively done.
Remember, if you want something, you WILL get it anyway. (Nothing is pre-written in your horoscope, palms, or face.) If you over-think about it or pollute your thinking about it, it will only be delayed. That is how things slip from one birth to the next! And then we say to our just-met partner, "Janam janam se tere liye ruka tha..." 'Kisne kaha tha rukne ke liye? Sirf negative thinking nahi karna tha...'
Why Overall Purification Is Required
Creating a couple of Pure Thoughts with an overall Impure Energy does NOT yield satisfactory results, and you may have experienced this as well.
Your overall Energy comprises of your Thinking Habits and Negative Memories, and they definitely contribute towards the Quality of your Manifestations.
For instance, if you want a Partner in your life, and you are very sincere about this Desire. At the same time, you tend to generate a lot of hatred in your Mind about some people in your life (or about some things happening in this world). On one hand, you are a Sincere Lover, and on the other hand, you are a Sincere Hater. Thus, your Energy is MIXED. Energy is Energy. Your Thoughts are specific to people or incidents, but your Energy is what you overall radiate. Thus, your results will either be mixed (i.e. the partner will come with a lot of traits that you HATE), or the manifestation will be delayed (i.e. the partner will not come soon). This is only an example.
This is why an Overall Cleanup is highly desired, and there are ways to do that.
Don't fret. You don't need to dissect or be aware of each and every Negative Thought within you. You just need to build up the other side of you (i.e. positive and pure) so much that it overpowers your negativity. Make use of your emotions. Whenever you feel bad, it indicates you that you have something that makes you feel bad, and you need to overcome that. Get rid of it as it's a trait you may be carrying for 100s of years now. You never know which one negative trait becomes an obstacle in receiving what you want in life. Just train yourself to overpower any situation positively and happily and see the change.
This work definitely takes practice and time, but once it becomes your habit, it becomes natural to you. Positive results start getting more instantaneous and magical. This is how miracles occur.
Following some Spiritual Rules, Limits, and Decorum can greatly help in purifying and cleaning your Thoughts and Energy.
Difference between Purity and Celibacy
Many people confuse between Purity and Celibacy. They think they're both the same. Some people promote Celibacy under the name of Purity. However, let's get clear about this once and for all.
Definition: No desperation (in Thoughts) of any kind (physical, emotional, sexual, or otherwise).
No dependence on any person or object for one's overall well-being.
Caters to your overall well-being.
Implementation requires constant self-work.
Changes one's overall Thoughts / Perceptions for the better.
A person who works on Purity is 100% on the correct Spiritual Track.
Purity does NOT necessarily comprise of Celibacy.
This helps you in Mastering your Mind.
Your life takes a 360o turn.
Gradually removes negative traits, such as Lusts, Jealousy, Anger, Greed, Attachment, Ego.
Purity is a MUST, for Spiritual Progress!
Definition: No indulgence in any kind of sexual or romantic activity.
No Sex (even no Masturbation - arguable).
Caters to your Sexual aspect only.
Very easy to implement. Just a few set of things to take care of.
Does NOT necessarily change one's Thoughts / Personality Traits.
A Celibate person is not necessarily Pure*
Celibacy is Optional. It is a Choice.
This makes you non-sexual. It deactivates your Sex Life (and that does not ensure that you are a master of your Mind)**
Celibacy is NOT mandatory for Spiritual Progress!
Gradually removes the desire for Sexual Pleasure. May or may not remove other lusts or vices.
It is OK to have sex. It's your choice whether to have it or not.
* There are many Celibates who I have seen gossiping with each other, insulting others, and misbehaving with one another. So, that means they are only abstaining from Sex, but they are not Pure (in the mind). They are on a totally different track.
** There are many people who exhibit many negativities in interactions with others, and that has got nothing to do with Sex.
Yes, this could be debatable / arguable according to some people, however, remember that this journey is ONLY about Self Awareness.
Your Spiritual Journey is not about Celibacy, but the Purity & Clarity of your Mind. Such a mind (when focused) manifests for you the best matching, the most unadulterated, and the purest version of your Desire. Just practicing Celibacy and doing nothing with your Mind does NOT work.
IS not, and WILL never be
God does NOT condemn (the act of) Sex. Period.
