The Pied Piper

I took a stand...
Gaurdian, at the gates of my mind...
Looking to catch the thief, that walked through.
I suddenly realized,

That it was my deluded belief...
That some thoughts were thieves....
That robbed me of my peace.

I left my stand...
Turned my back on the gate....
Whistling a merry tune, I waltzed along.
Pied Piper
To the edge of the sea...
All thoughts, following me, came along.

And as I stood still, whistling my song...
All thoughts, tumbled into the sea, and were gone.

when you are aware of the

when you are aware of the thieves entering your garden,you will stay with your mother,(kundalini) wandering in your body and the piper is made of two holes ida& pingala.Whenever the thief tries to enter, just blow the piper, closing one of the holes, upwards you are back again in to garden(sushumna)and the child is back to its mothers lap.This is what I understood after reading your post

What a relief...!!!

Dear mbnarayana,

That's an explanation I hadn't thought of.
Very well put.

My realization was of True Peace, being independent of thoughts, specially negative thoughts {thieves}. As long as Peace was dependent on a particular way of thinking, standing guard at the gates, was deemed essential, to only let positive thoughts through, and be alert about not allowing any negative thoughts to surface.

What a strain...!!!
And now, what a relief...!!!

Aware of thoughts

If you were 'made of' thought, constructed out of thought, defined and limited by thought, you would never be able to be aware of thought. You would never be able to say 'that's a thought'.

The fact that you can notice thought, be aware of it, observe its appearance and disappearance without needing to think, shows that what you are is already beyond thought. You are the ever-present stillness in which all thought comes and goes like clouds, living and dying in the vast sky of you.

If negative thought is

If negative thought is removed then positive thought enters.What neelakantha did when halahalam(bitter poison)emerged first during churning of sea of milk paving way for the emergence of nectar.Some times evil thoughts that enter our minds can be fatal.All the evils happening in this world are due to evil thoughts only.Once we are concious of these thieves we can drive them away.

Creating a split, where there is none.

Being embroiled and involved in thought, positive or negative, keeps one dancing the dance of duality. A hypnotic obsession.

Awareness IS.

Before thoughts arise, the simple ground....


Not of this or that and the pendulum swing between the two...

Duality is the nature of the mind....

Creating a split, where there is none.
