The incestuous relationship of the Ego, attached to the Body, gives birth to a daughter called Desire. When she is grown up and attains to puberty, she is mated to Hatred. The child of this marriage, nursed by its grand parent, Pride, the father of Ego, is the reaction to pleasure and pain (the duality of good and bad). This monster, fed on Hope, gets fattened and is violently opposed to Courage and Self-control - and being always drunk in Discontent, seeks delight in the chamber of Sensuality. Its (Duality's) sole work is to spread the disease of Doubt, without which it cannot exist, and in the process cuts out many a by-path of evil deeds. Thus it is that a person, being misguided, moves in the jungle of worldly life and bears through it heavy blows of misery.
This diseased family is known to exist and prosper through eternity. Like infection, it survives by afflicting the human mind, and spreads its tentacles without our knowledge. You must have observed in practical life that the doubting Thomas is always a man with a strong ego. Have you ever seen a fool or an idiot who is humble? See the happy countenance of contentment that sits ever so lightly on the face of a man of humility.
Unhappy people often drive away the very people whose support they need, thereby worsening their depression and intensifying their need for support. Misery may love company, but company clearly does not love misery. As someone has wisely said that: "there are persons who cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go". Thus, in order to be happy, which has always been our seeking; we must consciously divorce ourselves from this unholy alliance.Post ads:

Once the relationship map is known, it becomes to that extent easier to do so by a reversal of the process. Mind, that feeds on doubt can be consciously made to become more trusting so that we are now somewhat less discontent and the false hopes that we nourished begin to dissipate. The duality of good and bad is resolved to its being integrated into one of acceptability. Desire, thus aborted from taking birth, the entire family is made to become extinct.
The question that still remains to be answered is how to make the mind more trusting? Isn't it surprising that the mind that doubts everything else does not ever doubt itself. So begin from where you stand at the present moment. Start by doubting away your doubts.Post ads:
