“With all thy getting, get understanding.” I think it was King Solomon who said that. Why am I saying that? I am saying that because everyone is seeking understanding. We think if we get it, we will be free.

Free from what? Free from suffering. We suffer man. We don’t know why we suffer. We think it is others. Others are making us to suffer. That is why we want to kill them – to get rid of them.

We think after we had done that, we won’t suffer. We will be free. Is that wisdom? “With all thy getting, get understanding.” I think to think to get rid of others will release us from pain is lazy thinking.

No intelligent person thinks like that. I’d like to appeal to you, let us be intelligent. Let us look at this as wise men and women would.

What causes our suffering? “With all thy getting, get understanding.”

I’d like to repeat that. Repetition helps. It is not easy to forget a think if you repeat it. I didn’t. I liked the sentence. It sounds conservative, like the language of the past. Not the modern one.

Anyway, I think our suffering is caused by our choice of field of thought. That is quite mouthful. But it is also exciting – choice of the field of thought. If you didn’t know there was a field of thought, now you do.

You have your own field of thought. And you love it very much.

Everyday you think about it. And it comes alive when you are about to sleep. This is when you plant it in your inner mind, so that it stays there.

If that field of thought is a wrong one, woe unto us, we won’t go anywhere. We will remain the same. And then we would wonder, “What is wrong with me?” What is wrong is your field of thought.

You are planting wrong seeds in your mind. Your seeds are meaningless.

They are useless. You’ve got to change them. Do you get it? All this thing of blaming others is a fuss. You are to blame.

You think wrong thoughts. And you plant them into your faithful servant. What do you expect your faithful servant to do? Do you expect it to do the opposite of your field of thought?

Do you know this phrase; “Your wish is my command?” This is what the faithful servant does. It does what you plant to it. It gives you the plant of your seeds. You are to blame if you are suffering.

To end that suffering you’ve got to make a paradigm shift. Shift your field of thought. Go to another one. By that I mean go to the one that will end your suffering. This is what you have to do. Find it and do it. Stay positive.
