-Yes, but it’s so difficult in this stone tree. I can’t stand these worms that keep relentlessly complaining. No matter how positive I am, they manage to shut my thoughts down, the worm sadly explained.
-Papion, I want to tell you two things: The first is that you cannot blame others, because you are the master of your thoughts! The sooner you realize it, the better you will be in this life. You are the creator of your own thoughts, but you need to create them consciously! There is an old recipe that Buddha left behind, for a pure mind. If you follow it, it will help you become the master of your mind and instead of letting yourself be driven by thoughts, you will be the one to lead yourself to anything you want! In order to work, this recipe needs to become a constant exercise, and for that, you’ll need to make a significant effort at the beginning! But don’t worry: Once you’ve learned it, this new way of thinking will become natural and even enjoyable.
-And what is this recipe?
-It’s made up of four steps:
“Allow positive thoughts to enter your mind ”
“ Don’t allow negative thoughts to enter your mind ”
“ Delete the negative thoughts that already exist in your mind”
“Feed the positive thoughts that already exist in your mind”
-Airam, I’m sorry, that’s right, but it seems easy to say but so hard to accomplish. How can I put it into practice? How do I block the negative thoughts? Papion asked.
-Gratitude is the key to this exercise! I think so. When your mind is overrun by negative thoughts, you have to think of something for which you’re grateful. We all have reasons to be thankful in this world, we just don’t consider them enough. When negative thoughts start showing up, remember something that you’re happy about and say: Thank you! In that precise moment your mind becomes a shield against the dark thoughts, and the same gratitude, if it comes from your heart, will erase the negative thoughts that are already in your mind. Please note that if a negative thought attracts a similar thought, the same principle applies to the positive thoughts! The dark thoughts will return, but now you’ll be protected by this shield called Gratitude, and all you have to do is to use it, Airam said.
-Do you really believe that?
-Yes, it works for me. In my opinion, gratitude is the way, at least I think so, and if I change my mind, I will not believe I am wrong now, but that I’ve grown. I am grateful to God for the little wisdom that is in my mind, and I pray every day to be able to grow, to restrain my pride, and to learn something from every being I meet. I really believe that everyone has a hidden message for us. All you need is to find it.
-Don’t you think too much?
-You can’t think too much, you can only think productively or destructively, depending on what you choose. As for the wickedness you see in others, I want to tell you a short story in Japanese folklore, that is called “The House of a Thousand Mirrors.” And so Airam began to tell the story:

Noipap on Kindle right now.
I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone – if possible – Jew, Gentile – black man – white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost….
The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men – cries out for universal brotherhood – for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world – millions of despairing men, women, and little children – victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.
To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..
Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” – not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power – the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
Then – in the name of democracy – let us use that power – let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world – a decent world that will give men a chance to work – that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world – to do away with national barriers – to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

Life is a Lesson
-But if I keep trying and I bump into locked doors?
-It depends on your intention. Your intentions, whether correct or not, can open or lock doors for you. And I do not mean physical doors, but the ones that lead to a better life. Woe betide he who enters an opened door with bad intentions! Even if for a while it looks like a success, sooner or later fate will have its say! One way or another, he will curse the door he entered. Why do we think we can trick life? It’s time to wake up and understand that we simply trick ourselves!!
-Airam, how can I express myself to the others if they don’t understand me?
-I can only tell you that when you express yourself, you need to be calm, clear, and consistent! As for making others understand you… I can’t help you with that.
-What do you mean you can’t?! Papion asked, alarmed.
-Even if you could talk down to everyone, that doesn’t mean you can make them all understand you. So far no one has managed to do that. You have to give up worrying about what others may think of you! Have the courage to be always yourself. That is the greatest obligation to you! When you are real, without masks, everything will become clearer. Remember that the ones who love you love the good they see in you, not what you want to show. Think of how many of us wear masks all day long. They do not know who they are and what they want anymore. If they had the courage to be natural, to accept themselves as they really are without worrying about what others might say, and if they would instead try to correct their faults and develop their skills, wouldn’t they start to slowly understand who they really are and know exactly what they wish for? Wouldn’t it be an easier life knowing exactly who you are and what you want to become? If you’re doing everything you can to achieve your dream, when you go through tough times, it will be easier for you to accept them! It’s a virtue to go further, through the joys and hardships of life with enthusiasm! It’s a blessing knowing that everything is happening to teach you how to become better, stronger! Then, every day passes for a reason; it brings you closer to your dream! Wouldn’t it be better for us to understand that life is not a struggle? Life is a continuous lesson that helps us grow!!
