Why People Are Not Receptive to the “New” Consciousness?
The following article is extracted from
the book "Wisdom on How to Live Life (Book 3)"
by Dr. Tommy S. W. Wong
Tom: What you’ve said makes so much sense to me. Why are some people not receptive to your ideas?
Guru: Yes, it’s puzzling.
Tom: That’s right. This is the puzzle. Why aren’t they receptive to your ideas?
Guru: Old consciousness.
Tom: Old what? Can you explain?
Guru: Okay. Let’s suppose we come into this world like an empty cup.
Tom: So we’re empty.
Guru: As we go through life, our cup is being filled.
Tom: So we’re getting filled.
Guru: After many years, our cup is full.
Tom: So we’re full.
Guru: What happens when the cup is full, and we continue to fill it with water?
Tom: The water will overflow.
Guru: Will the ‘new’ water go into the cup?
Tom: How can the ‘new’ water go into the cup? It is already full of ‘old’ water!
Guru: Is it any use to continue to pour ‘new’ water into the cup?
Tom: No, it’s useless.
Guru: So how can we fill the cup with ‘new’ water?
Tom: We need to throw away the ‘old’ water.
Guru: Exactly. So how can people be receptive to the ‘new’ consciousness?
Tom: They need to throw away the ‘old’ consciousness.
Guru: Will this be a problem?
Tom: It’ll be a problem to some because they have been taught the ‘old’ consciousness for thousands of years.
Guru: Has the ‘old’ consciousness brought peace to Earth?
Tom: No peace on Earth. There’s only violence.
Guru: So, is the ‘old’ consciousness working?
Tom: Certainly not!
Guru: Well, then it’s time to empty our cup and fill it with something new.
Tom: Like the ‘new’ consciousness?
Guru: Like the ‘new’ consciousness.
