Letter:  16/ Freedom from the Ideology - Oriented Mind

        beloved bhakti,

    Love. No ideology can help to create a new world.
    Or a new mind.
    Or a new human being.
    Because, ideological orientation itself is the root cause of
all the conflicts and all the miseries.
    Thought creates boundaries.
    Thought creates divisions.
    And thought creates prejudices.
    And thought itself cannot bridge them.
    That is why all ideologies fail.
    Now man must learn to live without ideologies.
    Religious, political or otherwise.
    When the mind is not tethered to any ideology, it is
free to move to new understandings.
    And in that freedom flowers all that is good.
    And all that is beautiful.
