First, we have the ability to think, which is a wonderful gift. With our mind, we can think thoughts of love or fill our minds with anger and hatred. One creates inner peace and the other anxiety and stress – the conscious choice is ours. Second, we have the ability to communicate our thoughts with words. We can speak words of love or spew out words of anger and hate. One creates love and the other creates sadness and more anger – the conscious choice is ours. Third, we have the ability to take action on our thoughts and create accomplishments that help everyone, or we can take action to destroy and do harm – the conscious choice is, once again, ours.
How The Three Gifts of the Mind Relate to Conscious Choice
If we take the lower path, those three gifts of the mind lead to disappointment, the need for more and more material acquisitions and the need for pleasure all the time, which in itself creates its own kind of prison. If we take the high road, those three gifts of the mind lead to desiring nothing, giving whatever we have to others, and having compassion for humanity; thus, the end result is freedom.
The higher road leads to lasting peace with deep seated faith as well as a knowing that everything will work out, which allows us to sleep well at night. We come to know something larger than ourselves. God, the Universe, and the One and Only is at work for our highest good and all we have to do is follow.
