Our satellite dishes are incredible. Much more powerful than the old TV antennas, the modern ones can pick up almost any channel in the universe.
What most of us don’t know is that we, too, are antennas.
Paramhansa Yogananda, in Autobiography of a Yogi, wrote something incredible: “Thoughts are universally and not individually rooted.”
In other words, your thoughts are not your own.
The universe is swimming not only with radio waves, but also with “thought waves”. According to quantum physics – and yogis – the human body is a sort of radio receiver, able to tune in to different “thought stations” during the day, depending on our levels of consciousness and our levels of energy. Obviously, the higher the vibration we are vibrating at, the higher the frequency of messages we are able to receive.
First of all, we should be very careful in which direction our satellite dish is pointed.
In the right hands, “our thoughts” can bring us to the highest happiness. We don’t want the anger station, or the hatred station, or the in-between-stations noise; we want the Pure Channel. The thoughts on that channel can make us feel like we’re in Heaven. We just have to fine-tune the satellite dish so it doesn’t pick up the wrong stations. We have to give the remote control to our Higher Self.
If the remote control, on the other hand, gets picked up by our unconscious habits, then our lives become a living Hell. So we must be super-vigilant about who gets the remote.
You wouldn’t give control of your thoughts to a two-year-old, would you?
