Purity how to define it and how to cultivate it
Why do many people stop listening as soon as they hear purity mentioned?
They justify themselves by arguing that purity means narrow-mindedness,
limitation, fanaticism and even exclusion, that in the name of purity there
have been persecutions, massacres and burnings.
All that is true, but there have also been appalling crimes committed in the
name of love. Does that stop anyone ever saying the word love again or
continuing to love?
Just think for a moment! Is this reasoning honest? Just because the notion of
purity has often been misunderstood, people will find every justification for
continuing to wade in filth. Let them one day they will see the effects of this
mistaken way of thinking.
Now what is needed, of course, is a clear idea of what purity is and how to
purify oneself. Purifying oneself is, in the first place, a matter of being able to
discern the nature of the movements of ones inner life and analyse ones
thoughts, feelings, desires and plans. And as these thoughts, feelings, desires
and plans are often malicious and selfish, it is then necessary to work to
make them more selfless, generous and fraternal. Who can object to this
definition of purity?
