About this Blog

This Blog is a collection of excerpts from talks given by Sri Swami Vishwananda. Please note that this Blog does not focus on dates, background and the exact original way of how Swamiji delivered the speech. We edit the talks slightly, presenting them in a kind of “poetic” format. This means we choose certain paragraphs from a talk which reflect a particular theme.
Read them as pieces of Divine Wisdom, meditate upon the words and just feel how Swamiji is addressing you with His words.

Don't be influenced by the power of the mind

This is another excerpt of Sri Swami Vishwananda's Christmas Speech last year (25th December 2008)

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
Don’t say you will gradually stop [with giving up bad habits like gossippi ng, smoking, etc) . It doesn’t happen.

The same thing with Love- If you want to love, love now. If you want to open your heart, open it now and don’t think of how you will open your heart.

This is another point, you know?
When people say “I want to open my heart, but it’s very difficult “, what is happening?
There is a positivity and directly they put a negativity behind. What is the result? It’s very mathematical. (Audience laughing)
Plus and minus?

Someone: Zero

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Equal minus.
So it’s not about the thinking, because you will think a lot of things.
It’s about just doing and wanting now to change.
The power thought, the power that your mind creates at that moment, when you think is very, very strong.
Example: The first thought that passes through your mind in the morning is your programme of the day. What do you do? What do you think is the first thing?
You think “What will I do today and then you carry on. The day automatically rolls accordingly to what you have thought in the morning, because in the morning, the mind has rested and the power, all the thoughts have been gathered together and focussed on one point – the moment you open your eyes, the moment it comes into action, that reaction makes your day.
But in the morning if you wake up you saying” Oh my goodness I have a headache, even if you don’t have a headache, you have headache.” (Audience laughing)

So it doesn’t matter which kind of headache, you know?
But you will have headache, because you create it.
