Question: I do not express my thoughts because I am socially restrained. I am afraid of being judged. Can I free myself only by deeds? What has solution of it?
Answer: Yes of course. There is no more a final arbiter than action, deeds, life. What else is life but a continuous flow of action? One finally has to give oneself the liberty to do it. Talking as a precursor to doing is all right, acceptable, but talking as a subtitute to doing is evil.
If you want to talking or thinking or discussing as a preparatory method before leaping into action, it is okay, sometimes, the beginner needs that. Sometimes, everybody needs to think a little before taking a leap. Sometimes, one needs talk to herself, sometimes to others, All that is understandable. But if one becomes a professional thinker specializing in nothing but thought and deliberation, and therefore vacillation and inaction, it is merely self-deception.
Also, I must warn you against the temptation to be fully sure at the level of thought. No absolute clarity is possible at the level of thought. Thought can bring you a certain level of clarity, It would be a relative level.
So, if you insist that unless you are totally clear with your thoughts you will not move, then have ensured that you are never really going to move; then you will always have a reason to think a little more because thought by its very design can never be fully certain. and you can very well exploit that last iota to keep stretching the thought.
This is where faith is important. Faith is needed, so that you can act without being fully certain. At the level of thought, thought is still raising its habitual objections, but youu say to thought, ‘ You might not be clear. I am clear.’
Have you ever found thought coming to a final conclusion? That which appears like conclude tonight reopen for discussion would mean the death of thought.So, why would mind ever lend itself to conclusion? Thought would always leave a little scope for doubt, that uncertainty, more thinking can be justified.
So, think if you must, but never expect thought to come to a solution. Thought is useful, but is matter of living, loving, and Truth, the utility of thought is limited. Do not try to overexploit thought. you will end up being exploited . If you are saying that social restrictions, etc., are preventing you from enacting what you know, then you will have to weigh the security that you get from social conformity against the suffering that you get from this willing avoidance of your destiny.
What is bigger, your demand for security or your love for Truth? This answer will determine your life.
