The Most Beneficial Tools

Everyone uses the tools they think provide the most benefits or they wouldn’t develop them, but this doesn’t mean they are the most beneficial. If a tool is truly beneficial, it will never ever cause suffering to you or anyone else…

You can only use the tools you have developed to react to situations as they occur. Whatever ones you have developed to cope with life, whether it be alcohol, drugs, anger, programs, tobacco, getting tattoos, therapy, medication, suicide, cutting, fantasizing, success, wealth, meditation, mindfulness, greed, envy, false pride, religion, tv, politics, sex, food, and so on, you only use them because they’re thought to be the most beneficial tools you have. When the developed tools stop working, new ones will need to be developed that are deemed more beneficial. If no new ones are developed, the old ones will be used again and again; this equates to the dog chasing its tail syndrome.

You will know when you’re using the most beneficial tools because they will never cause you or anyone else suffering.

A beneficial tool will never cause conflict because that equates to suffering. The gauge to see if the tools being used are truly beneficial is in how much attachment you have to it. Attachment is the cause of all suffering so it’s a true gauge that can be used. Self investigation is also a tool, matter of fact every reaction you have is the result of a developed tool.

A beneficial tool will also never ever cause suffering to yourself or others, this is a fact. It can’t because it’s based in the quietness of love. Tools that are based in attachment to satisfy yourself cause suffering and this occurs regardless if you think the tool you are using is a beneficial tool. Love doesn’t attach or ever causes suffering, and nor will developed tools, as long as they are the most beneficial ones being used…
