How The Mind Works: I published in my last post (Creating Your Reality) about the mind having two jobs; (1) it put up pictures; (2) its job was to keep us trapped in the physical world of materialism. I covered the first job about putting up pictures; now i will cover the second job of the mind.
This is by no means religious based; i do not belong to any belief system; however i do believe in a creator; whoever that may be; or what ever that may be. I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Human beings have a human nature which is created from this material world and survival instincts. Everyone wants to be loved; liked & appreciated; it is part of our human nature; humans will also do anything to survive; if necessary they will kill to survive; which is not much different from an animal; except a human has the power to reason; where animals live on instinct alone. Now when we are acting out inappropriately that is the human side of us that is in charge; and likes to be in control. “While you are in your mind consciously thinking then the mind it is control”; unless you have learned to control your mind; because either “you are in charge of it”; or “it is in charge of you”.
“Do you have endless chatter going on that does not want to cease?” Or “can you quieten the mind and only allow the thoughts you choose to come in?”
It was necessary for me to clarify that because i am going to suggest to you some things which you need to be open-minded about. These things i have personally experienced and continue to experience on a daily basis. You do not need to change whatever belief system you are currently following; so feel perfectly safe in that knowledge. I use the word SPIRIT as a label that covers the “unseen, infinite, intelligent life force” that flows through every living thing; you can label it whatever you want; but that is how i refer to it (Spirit). The Spiritual realms lay beyond the mind; where infinite intelligence exists in the fourth and fifth dimensions; that is where your intuition lives, and your mind can not go there. It has no control over you once you are above the three-dimensional world. When in the upper worlds you have thought coming in that flows; you feel the words as you write them; when creatively writing; but no unwanted chatter or forced distractions. The mind uses your censers to keep you distracted and trapped; like, sight, sound, smell, touch, fear of the unknown; to keep you in the mental realm and in this material world of illusion. To get beyond the mind in the realm of Spirit and live in the NOW you need to quieten the mind so you can connect with your feelings. Think about this; when you are in your head thinking you can not feel; that is the reason why we escape there; who wants to feel all these terrible feeling that we humans experience living in this physical world; (feelings like; inadequacy; helplessness; hopelessness; disappointment; failure; the list goes on); so we need a coping mechanism to help us survive emotionally. This works for a while in some people till it gets too much and they finish up with a nervous breakdown or a verity of mental illnesses. I HATE using that label; the medical profession us it but i do not like that label; because it does not reflect the spiritual being; it just reflects the label that people put on the human being and the identity it has created to cope. When i am doing my healing work i communicate with the spiritual being (their soul awareness) not to the human identity.
Have you ever considered what stress really is? It is your mind “out of control”; what is the opposite of “out of control”; being “in control”. Not being controlling; that is a different thing all together.
So how do we deal with this mind: Well for starters whenever something comes into your mind you do not like; tell is to go, very firmly; use whatever colorful language you wish; talk to it as though you were talking to anyone; but say it with authority; the attitude; i am in charge here, not you. Now if it does not go or comes back after a few seconds; keep telling it to go and you will find it goes. I do this all the time; but i rarely need to do it twice any more or very often.
Walking between the worlds:
Going beyond the mind into the endless world of spirit; we all do it but may not realize the mechanism by which it is done. You need to calm the mind; which can be done a few ways; you can sit quietly and focus on a lit candle about 18″ away from yourself; or start doing something creative; listening to your favorite music, writing, singing, painting, anything that requires your creative skills puts you beyond the mind. While you are in these states it is what we call NO TIME; because we are fully in present time. This is the state where you can access infinite intelligence and get the answers you need for anything you desire; it is also the place of great healing’s. When i am writing, the words flow so fast i can not type quick enough; if i have to start reverting to my memory for something; the flow slows right down or completely stops. Orchestral conductors have the longest longevity of any profession in the world; because they spend most of their time in the now; in their feelings conducting music.; the mind drains your energy; SPIRIT lifts it up.
There are countless recordings where our famous inventors and scientists have made remarkable discoveries after taking a short nap; to wake up with the answers they required for their inventions. Going beyond the mind by taking a nap allowed them to access infinite intelligence for the answers to their problem.
Ask yourself a question; the first answer that comes in is your intuition; it is always first; then the mind comes in and wants to overrule the answer that your intuition gave you. It tries to convince you that the first answer is wrong. I bet there is not one person who has not experienced this: then you go along with your mind; and then it turns out that your first answer was right all along and you are kicking yourself!!! I have learned to trust my intuition more and more as i have got older and my life has become a lot more peaceful and joyous.
It is impossible to stay in present time all the time; because of the world we live in and interactions with other people keep us in this physical world. However we can certainly spend a great deal of time creating whatever world we want to. If you are in the healing business or welfare, writing or any profession that takes the attention off yourself and put it on the other person then this keeps you in present time.
This has been a long blog; hope you managed to read it all; i could have expanded more but believe it or not i tried to make it as short as possible. Hope you liked it and any questions of comments are most welcome; have a great day filled with joy and happiness; LOL Murray
