Recently during my conversations on the aspect of relevance of our thoughts in the process of Krishna Consciousness.
One way of looking at it is our thoughts may come up with some misconceptions through our mental concoctions & speculations and we may deviate from the philosophy of Krishna Consciousness. The living entity within this material world is full with four defects that we are already aware of. It is one of the important factor that discriminate Krishna Consciousness from other cults or processes but it may lead to lose of individuality.
Other way of looking at it is Individuality is an essential ingredient of Jivatma or super soul that Krsna has endowed to us and we must culminate the realizations through our own thoughts and percepts. The thinkers of this thought are of the view that if we don't let our thoughts grow within our-self then it becomes more of stereotyped approach without any realization. Further the other way of looking at this approach is culmination of thoughts are also coming from the heart, wherein the Super soul in the form of parmatma is guiding and inspiring us to cultivate those thoughts. We may also apply the concept of free will and minute independence of jivatma here here but some more explanations are appreciable. Also their criticism to first approach is our mentality becomes more close ended then being open thinking through,
Can someone throw some deeper lights on this aspects to culminate the right understanding on the basis Krishna Consciousness philosophy? Thank you Hare Krishna
