Unlearn to learn afresh
We can compare our mind with cultivable land. Say, we have acres and acres of cultivable land and we want to turn that land in a beautiful orchard. We have all the inputs required to turn that land into our dream orchard. We have desire and we have resources. However, we see that cultivable land had been used to grow some big trees like eucalyptus. All those eucalyptus plants are deep rooted in the land. Now, what shall be our move? Shall we start sowing seeds of new plants or first we should remove the plants which had already been planted there. It is quite obvious that we shall remove all those plants which we do not want. Only then we shall be able to grow new desired plants. Similarly, in life also sometimes we kept occupied our mind with something which we do not want. So, we will have to remove those unwanted things. That means we will have to unlearn those unwanted things and learn those things which will bring us closer to what we want in life and ultimately help us to get our goal. The unwanted things could be our past no so good experiences. It might be our ego resulting from the feeling that i am complete and perfect. The experiences and the feelings which shakes our faith and impair our hope, must be unlearn. How can we unlearn the things, it it is some person forgive him/her and if it is things forget. Learn afresh and look ahead a new beginning is waiting. Let every morning bring a new hope.
