Be a positive Netizen

Today we all are so dependent on the Internet that it is almost impossible to think of life without it. There are many similarities between humans and the Internet. Our brain is like computer terminal. What do we store in this computer? What do we download into our mind? Rajyogi Brahmakumar Nikunj writes.

Today we all are so dependent on the Internet that it is almost impossible to think of life without it. There are many similarities between humans and the Internet. Our brain is like computer terminal. What do we store in this computer? What do we download into our mind?

When we download something heavy and negative, we use up a lot more ‘bandwidth’ from our mind and anything positive seems untrue. But when we download something positive, negative thoughts seem ridiculous.

So what looks true is being determined by the state of our inner being. Hence, to be safe, we must always have an ‘antivirus’ in place that will guide us on what to download.

Also, we must keep our mind fully equipped with a safe search engine that will take us to the right addresses that are free from pop-ups and malware, for our aim and objective in life should be clear.

We may each be individual terminals, but we are all networked with each other through cosmic vibrations.

In an ecosystem, each entity puts something into the system that can be either of value or junk to others, like trees give out oxygen which we need and we put out carbon dioxide which trees need for photosynthesis.

Hence, when we contribute our gift to Nature, we tend to feel lighter, positive, happy and have natural self-esteem.
