Do not Jump to Conclusions


8363564653_9b42f17e71_o.jpgRestrain yourself from wanting to jump to a conclusion. Even though you think you almost know, restrain yourself, because in this Universe of so many possibilities, you can never know completely. It is said, “the one who thinks he knows; knows not.” It is very wise, isn’t it? Because he is caught up in the mind, he is caught up in limitation, “the one who thinks he knows; knows not.” But the one who knows that he knows not; truly knows. That is power; that means that person is completely open every time for new. In a Universe of all possibilities, how can we with a finite mind ever think that we know completely, that we have the full knowledge?

It is the same way we think about the Divine, the Supreme. Every tradition has so many ideas of what the Supreme is; everyone is locked into a particular way of looking. Of course, it is a way of looking, it is valid, but is it the only way? Can we be open to every tradition, every aspiration towards the Divine, know that it is one way of looking at the Universe and celebrate the many ways of looking at the Universe? That is being open. Sri Vasudeva
