Issue 51: Inspiring people

This was only an introduction to Praja’s third dream. Now follows the story of the actual third dream.


(Inspiring People)

Again she was standing on the large table with the tiny watch, and became so small that she could enter the watch. Very briefly she saw all that she had seen in her former dreams. But now she went strait to the place where the people were, the beings with a mind. And she saw their terrible suffering as well as their great successes. She wanted to prevent all suffering, and lead them all to success and happiness – she wanted to make them People of the Heart.

Now, because everyone is his own question, everyone can solve his problem by himself. That is his task, or her task, the task and drive of every living being – even if they don’t know that. So Praja would: 1) teach how to prevent creating unnecessary problems springing from imperfect minds; and 2) help to invent general methods to handle or cure suffering in the best possible way when it occurs. She always works at the side of the cause of problems, and she herself creates causes for everyone who wants to handle his problems in the best possible way. But she would never try to eliminate the results of everyone’s own doing and thinking. Because then people would never learn anything at all. Everyone has a free mind which is always connected with the mind of Adi. Everyone is free to choose the most difficult and the most painful way for himself, and even has the freedom to hurt other beings if he chooses to do so – though naturally the pain caused to others will always return to himself. But some people prefer to learn things the hard way, and if she takes away the choices and chances of such people, she would go against the law of freedom, and so she would not help such people at all. What Praja also does is to try to inspire millions of people to be compassionate for others and thus work as nurses, doctors, relief workers and in other helpful functions and professions where help is needed, especially during wars and earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and other dreadful events that have been set in motion by minds and natural forces a long time ago and can not be stopped.

In her dream she learned all the types of terrible suffering people can have as a consequence of having a mind and free choice within their mind. People can have trouble with their body, or with their feelings, or with their mind itself. Praja dreamed of all that, and what to do about it – in general lines at least. For the practical side of the work on Earth she would need many helpers: thinkers with a proper heart to work out the details, and workers to realize what the thinkers had worked out with their minds.

Until that moment Praja had never seen humans in any of her dreams. She found out that they differed from animals because they were walking with their heads on top of two legs. Also most of them had very little hairs compared to other mammals, but people were definitely mammals. In stead of natural fur they had made themselves artificial extra skins of sheep-hairs and pappus of plants and some other products. Some wore large pieces of animal skin, in particular skins of cows.

But that was only a difference on the outside. Occasionally, in some countries she saw people who were wearing no cloths at all or only very few, at other places she saw some animals wearing cloths, like some dogs and horses, and even elephants and monkeys, and also goats who were wearing bras but nothing else; such animals were always accompanied by people. The animals had not made the cloths by themselves (because they had no mind and no skills), but the people had made these for them – and the animals of course didn’t understand why.

But what she saw inside the people was very different from what she saw inside animals. All people (at least almost all) had a mind and were thinking continuously. Animals had no mind, or at best hardly a little bit of it, and they followed their feelings and sense-organs and acted from feeling-impulses only. People also often acted from feeling-impulses, but they also gave a thought to what they did.

Praja saw that most animals are quite happy (not always though, and not all of them) as long as there were no human enemies around who would take them prisoner, kill them, eat them, hunt them, so that the survivors would live in constant fear for humans, or who put them in cages or let them do work without payment. Wild animals, and domesticated animals also whenever they get the chance, just did what was obvious: they eat, sleep, mate, some care for their young and others don’t, some ruminate, some hibernate, some would fight and hunt and run and climb and dig and fly. They just do whatever they feel like doing, but didn’t (and couldn’t) really think about why they were doing what they were doing. When they made something, like a nest or a hole or went on a migrating journey to a far country, the pattern seemed greatly pre-programmed by instincts and acquired habits. They would never take great new initiatives, like building a house in stead of the usual nest; and some birds sang beautiful songs – but always the same song with only minor variations. So most animals are usually happy, but they can never think “Wow, I am happy today.” Most of the time they are healthy, because their instincts are wiser and stronger than their desires. And of course most animals have enough physical exercise every day, and always eat natural foods. On the other hand they miss a lot of the happinesses that humans have, like listening music, learning something, accomplish something and many other happinesses which you can only have if you have a mind. But right because they have no human mind, they cannot think about what they are not having. Plants did not even do such things as animals do. They never went anywhere, because they had no wishes, and never built something, and they didn’t think at all. And therefore create no problems either.

Praja saw however that many people were unhappy, sometimes almost continuously, or only partly happy, and never completely happy, but often they seemed more unhappy than animals can ever be. This was mostly due to their mind. They had more pain and diseases than most animals. Animals have these things also, but by far not so much as humans. Praja wondered for a while: “Had it been a mistake of Nature to give them a mind?” But no, without a mind they could never have become what they really are: a question that must, and will, be answered. So it was not a mistake. Then, why would they suffer and what caused it, and what could she do about it?

(About diseases)

Praja saw a woman who had cancer – lung cancer. She was very sick and very miserable because she was very afraid to die. (She knew nothing about dying and what happens after dying – otherwise she would have feared nothing).
