In the previous thought, we discussed the issue of controlling your thoughts.
What will happen if you can't control your thoughts?
I am reminded of a story.
A man was walking a long distance. It was summer and the heat was oppressive.
He found a big tree and decided to rest under it for a while.
He rested under the tree using the root of the tree as a pillow.
A thought occurred to him, "This root is very hard on my head. How nice will it be if I can get a pillow?"
To his astonishment, he found a pillow next to him and rested his head o that.
He was very hungry. He wondered whether he could some food.
To his surprise, a dish loaded with delicacies made its appearance. He became a little scared but ate the food relishing it heartily.
When he lay down again, he felt his legs aching due to the strain of walking a long distance. "How I wish a nice looking woman comes here and massages my body. An attractive woman appeared before him with a broad smile and started massaging him.
Even as he was enjoying the message, he thought, "Who is this woman? Is she a devil disguised as an attractive woman?
Instantly, the woman was transformed into a devil.
"Oh My God, the devil is going to eat me alive" was his last thought!
