Vivekananda on Mind Growth

The true meaning of freedom and liberation has been beautifully and clearly defined by Swami Vivekananda. He has also described the real meaning of what that elusive silence or the state of no-mind really means. True Mind Growth can only be achieved by transcending the Universe inside you.

One has to move beyond the thoughts and the conditioned thinking of the mind. This conditioning which probably commenced when you were in the womb of your mother has restricted your mind to a fixed set of boundaries.These boundaries are the invisible line one never crosses. One remains forever in that same mind set from birth till death and never comes out of it till one dies.

One forever remains in the known Universe which exists within oneself. One tries to find answers through the Gurus and the Preachers. One also tries to find answers through the teaching of the Religious Tests and Scriptures.What one fails to understand is what these teaching contain is the ‘known’. What someone knows is the known. What one has to really try to achieve is to transcend this known and enter into the unknown, for the Universe like your mind is infinite and cannot be restricted to a confined place. This is the only secret of enlightenment and the path to achieve the elusive state of Non-Duality.

The entire mind set including that of restricting one self to the Laws of ‘Karma’ or the Law of Cause & Effect' has to change so has to change the religious conditioning. One has to cross these invisible restrictions and start moving into new horizons or the ‘unknown’. This so for the true nature of the human mind is one of expansion, when the mind fails to expand it starts mutating into something else.

I would like you to have a look at what Swami Vivekananda has to say on how to reach ultimate freedom and liberation.

“To acquire freedom we have to get beyond the limitations of this universe; it cannot be found here. Perfect equilibrium, or what the Christians call the peace that passeth all understanding, cannot be had in this universe, nor in heaven, nor in any place where our mind and thoughts can go, where the senses can feel, or which the imagination can conceive.

No such place can give us that freedom, because all such places would be within our universe, and it is limited by space, time and causation. There may be places that are more etherial than this earth of ours, where enjoyments may be keener, but even those places must be in the universe, and therefore in bondage to law; so we have to go beyond, and real religion begins where this little universe ends.

These little joys, and sorrows, and knowledge of things end there, and the reality begins. Until we give up the thirst after life, the strong attachment to this our transient conditioned existence, we have no hope of catching even a glimpse of that infinite freedom beyond. It stands to reason then that there is only one way to attain to that freedom which is the goal of all the noblest aspirations of mankind, and that is by giving up this little life, giving up this little universe, giving up this earth, giving up heaven, giving up. the body, giving up the mind, giving up everything that is limited and conditioned. If we give up our attachment to this little universe of the senses, or of the mind, we shall be free immediately. The only way to come out of bondage is to go beyond the limitations of law, to go beyond causation.”
