The aah haa moment

We sometimes have that aah haa moment when  we realize what has happened. This could be an understanding of a solution to a calculus problem, or a sudden enlightenment of an amusing joke.  In our religion, God promises this kind of moment when we understand God’s guidance; perhaps like a light turning on in our minds, indicating our understanding of God’s intentions.

Though until now no one has known

the truth of the human mind. 15-19

Now today, whoever you may be,

I shall clearly reveal your true innermost heart. 15-20

If only it is revealed entirely,

the sweeping of the heart will be accomplished of itself. 15-21

Verse 15-19 states that we do not understand that greed, arrogance, and self-love in our minds cause future sufferings in our lives (heaven or future lives/karma/causality).

Verse 15-20 states that God will begin to guide us by showing us our future. By this process, God will begin to place disease, illness, or health on our bodies depending on how we are using our minds today.

Verse 15-21 states that when we associate our disorders with the use of our minds, we will begin to eliminate these evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) by ourselves, possibly without God’s future guidance.

In summary, the sufferings in the world has not been associated with the way we use our minds. God gives us a future glimpse of our future (heaven or future lives) by placing illness, disease, or health on our bodies appropriate to how we are using our minds today. When we realize that these illness or disorders are God’s guidance, we can begin to sweep these evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our hearts by ourselves.  If this realization of the association between the mind and suffering occur, we may not need God’s guidance in the future to sweep away our evils; we may be able to sweep these evils by ourselves. When greed, arrogance, and self-love disappear from our minds, only joy will occur in the future.
