To think independently.
You need to learn to be aware of your own mind.
You need to learn to know how powerful it is.
You need to learn how to think.
You will direct your own mind to think good.
Your mind will become strong to make you to say good and to do good.
The more your mind become independent, the more you will love the beauty of truth and you will happily enjoy the fruit of living in truth for your inner peace and you will try harder to guide other people in thinking independently.
Free thinkers who still feel unhappy, not because of freedom, but due to lack of proper training. Undisciplined freedom is not freedom; it is slavery.
Luckily, I am not your teacher, but God is.
Turn to God and know that He is always waiting for you.

The intention of the teacher must be pure, his heart independent, his spirit attracted, his thought at peace, his resolution firm, his magnanimity exalted and in the love of God a shining torch. Should he become as such, his sanctified breath will even affect the rock; otherwise there will be no result whatsoever. As long as a soul is not perfected, how can he efface the defects of others! Unless he is detached from aught else save God, how can he teach the severance to others!
(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 427)
Let your own mind think
Inner peace be yours
