A mantra is an “instrument of thought” that allows the mind to be released by means of sounds, syllables or groups of syllables, or words or short phrases that, through their repetition, seek an energy vibration that manages to focus the thoughts in what one needs.
Mantras are used to limit the noise that sometimes floods our mind. Noise that arises when we are in imbalance, which occurs at the moment when our discourse is not aligned with what we think, do and say.
Otherwise, when one is aligned, in balance, it is because he thinks, does and says what reason dictates in common sense.
This gives us spiritual clarity, which is revealed when there is coherence in our discourse, which we can equally see in our acts, since these must be manifestations of freedom and search for meaning.
Thus, whoever is free of pain, hatred, or resentment, can act on account of the care of himself, and therefore of the other.
In other words, one who is in equilibrium can give himself to the other, otherwise he can only “get more entangled” through the other by trying to find in him the answers that dwell only in himself.
The mental clarity or the spiritual balance is obtained in the measure in which the acts of one account of our will to transform the environment for the harmony of all.
That is, one who works for one’s own good and that of others is an awake, present subject who can differentiate in his discernment what the other does for his own benefit (selfishness), or what he does for the benefit of harmony with the other (generosity).
Spiritual clarity is then an exercise in persevering reflection that helps to focus the subject on goals and goals of learning, transformation and construction of a measured future, as a consequence of a present lived in the function of joy and the pursuit of harmony.
He who goes into such dynamics knows that there are things that do not depend on him or her, therefore, in order not to enter into empty sufferings, he gives them to life, God, Buddha or his spiritual guide.
On the other hand, those who live in imbalance insist on imposing their will over the nature of the unnameable, falling into states of tension, rage, anger, dependence, victimization, resentment or totalitarianism that end up sickening the body and deepening its evil to be existential.
In this way, without solving anything, someone like that, except that loses his physical, psychic and spiritual health, only wallows with the negative energy produced by the place where he lives.
Therefore, a confused human being makes his inability to be in balance, in harmony or in peace with himself, generate a negative environment in which the other has little to contribute, since that unhappy subject is not up to the circumstances to allow kindness.
His worldview as his imaginary is a mixture of frustration, anger and resentment that, not to heal, not allowing himself to remember without pain as a forgiveness of himself for not having learned the lesson that things are and happen as they are and not from the aegis of the caprice that appeals to his fickle well-being, can only sow through his footsteps as acts and his words as a manifestation of his extimity, instability or insecurity.
The present is but the sum of all the chapters of the past.
If you are at peace with the past, if you have closed and clarified each of its chapters, there is a harmonious present. Therefore, a future can be built in which joy is a state of being.
Whoever is not in this state is because his imbalance asks him to review.
Hence the opportunity of the mantras, since they allow us to enter into silences or in states of conscious control of the noise of our grievances, anguish or demands, to focus on what is really causing me pain.
If I identify my pain, I can limit the suffering, which is by imaginary antonomasia.
When I look at my reality face-to-face I have a choice: the possibility of deciding whether to continue in the place where I have been located so that life will fail me, or I relocate so that she will save me.
At most, the mantras are, in relation to our balance, the notes of joy that allow us to sustain life as it is. If we do not accept it, we do not have spiritual clarity.
