Manana means all your thinking is concentrated on your Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image and Life’s Image betterment. Please understand, Inner Image is the ideas you carry about you. Outer Image is the ideas you project about you. Others’ Image is the ideas others carry about you. Life Image is the idea you carry about others and life. Constantly concentrate your thinking to make all these four better, better, better. Betterment of all these four leads to intense thinking and intense thinking leads to betterment of all these four.
Thinking to better all these four is what I call “manana”.
Vague thinking is one of the biggest mental disorder, psychological disorder, conscious disease, disease with which your consciousness is suffering. First thing, let your thinking be aligned to your Inner Image, Outer Image, Life’s Image, Others’ Image. Anything which is away from these four, consciously, decisively complete with that pattern. Let your energy be intensified just on these four. Stop this vague thinking. Learn to think.
Take four days off from your regular routine. Go somewhere where you are not demanded, where you are not expected to follow any routine. Wake up whenever you want. Start writing down your usual thinking but if you wake up, naturally your usual thinking will start. Pen down. After you pen down half-an-hour or one hour, when you don’t have further any thoughts, then read what you wrote, see how you can align your thinking to the betterment of these four – Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image, Life Image. Whatever is not in alignment, complete with those thought patterns.
For example, if you are a sannyasi and if you have a thought pattern of the lust or power, then sit with yourself and complete with that root-pattern. Find out why that parasite patterns exists in you. I tell you, at some point you would have felt powerless, weak; that is why you wanted social power or political power as a alternative to your existential power. So complete with that pattern. I am not saying you should not have social power or you should not have political power, no. All I am saying is, having social power or political power due to the powerlessness inside is something seriously wrong. That powerlessness has to be completed, has to be attended. Complete with all the root-patterns which is not in sync, alignment with your Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image and Life’s Image, which is not helping you to better all these four. Betterment of all these four is “manana”. Please listen if your thinking is vague, you do not align yourself with these four.
Authentic thinking, authentic thinking is Manana. Please understand, our thinking, is it going hand-in-hand with the way we want to build ourselves? If your thinking is bettering your four identities, then your thinking is your friend. If your thinking is functioning in the opposite direction of your four identities, if they are not bettering that four identities, then your thinking itself is your enemy. Please understand, first you need to find out whether your thinking is acting as a god inside you or as a demon inside. Whether it is acting as a god inside you or as a demon inside you. Sometime many of you are possessed by ghost. What is that ghost? Your own thinking which is not in alignment with the betterment of your four identities.
First, sit and pen down the four identities you wanted to have – the best Inner Image, best Outer Image, best Other’s Image, best Life Image. Have that four. Pen down. Then align all your thinking to it. If there is some thinking which goes in a completely different direction, complete with it, complete it. Declare spontaneous completion and drop it. Align your thinking towards these four identities – Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image and Life’s Image.
Dense thinking, intense thinking, sincere thinking becomes authenticity. You don’t need to do anything special to be authentic. You don’t need to spend every day some time to become authentic. First, spend few days and learn authenticity, learn to think in an authentic way.
“Manana” is one of the biggest treasure, power, God has given you and unfortunately, you are not using it.
Sometime, when people come and stand here asking me for healing them, I really feel, ‘Oh, God, why are you coming and standing in front of me like a beggar? Narayana, why do you stand here like a “daridra” without realizing you are Narayana? You are capable of everything I am capable of!’
It is unfortunate, people have, their own head becomes a dead-weight on themselves. It is like a big rock is sitting on you, you cannot move your body. So their own thinking becomes a big rock on themselves and they feel they are bound, they are bound, they are bound. They are bound, they are bound, they are bound. So unfortunate. All you need to do is only one thing: align your thinking towards your four identities. That’s all. That’s all.
Your thinking can become your enemy; your thinking can become your friend. Bringing intensity into your thinking is Manana.
