Can you be free of your mind ?
Beginning of freedom is realisation that you are not the thinker .
The moment you start watching the thinker
Thought is only a tiny bit part of the intelligence
Everything that truly matters arises from beyond the mind .
1. Watching the thinker :
Virtually everyone hears a lot of voices in your head .
Monologues and dialogues in your mind you think you can’t control .
The voice complaints .
The voice is your conditioned mind – collection of your past history , inherited conditioning .
Many people live with the tormenter in their head , its the cause of disease .
Start listening to the voice in your head and notice the recurring ideas , be there witnessing present . Listen to the voice impartially . Do not judge or contempt what you listen to . There’s the voice , here I AM listening to it .
When you listen to the thought you are aware not only of the thought , and you as the listener of the thought , a new dimension of consciousness .
No longer it controls you .
You will experience gaps . Starting as shorter and they will grow .
This is the beginning of your natural state .
With practice the sense of peace
Joy of being arises from deep within , which is not trance .
you are much more alert , awake than the mind
As you go into the realm of the NO MIND
In that state you feel your own presence with so much joy , the world becomes insignificant , its not selfish but selfless state .
Raises your vibrations .
That presence is you above all .
2. PRESENT MOMENT : draw consciousness away from the thinker and create a gap of no mind , in which you are highly alert and aware but not thinking
its the essence of meditation .
Give fullest attention to an activity like walking down the stairs pay attention to your movement , stairs . When washing hands feel all the sense of soap , water .
Criteria to test this is the degree of peace you feel .
LEARN TO DISIDENTIFY FROM YOUR MIND .
CREATE A GAP
ONE DAY YOU MAY CATCH YOURSELF LAUGHING AT YOUR MIND AND THINKING .
AS YOU WOULD SMILE TO ANTICS OF A CHILD
Your sense of self doesn’t depend on your thinking .
Your mind is a tool ,an instrument pick it up do the work and leave .
SERIOUS LEAKAGE OF ENERGY IS CAUSED BY YOUR THINKING . IT SEEMS STRONGER THAN YOU . IT GIVES YOU SOME SORT OF PLEASURE WHICH INVARIABLY TURNS INTO PAIN
TO THE EGO THE PRESENT DOESN’T EVEN EXIST ONLY PAST AND THE FUTURE WHICH IS SO REVERSIBLE .
EGO CAN ONLY BE KEPT GOING BY CONSTANT THINKING .
One day when this or that happens i will be happy , fulfilled …
Ego forces to constantly think about the future for its survival
Even the present it sees through the past .
The ego tries to aim at its survival .
THE PRESENT HOLDS THE KEY TO LIBERATION .
YOU CANT FIND PRESENT UNTILL YOU ARE YOUR MIND .
You derive your sense of self from your identity .
WITHOUT THOUGHT WHO AM I ?
Next Stage : Thinking and consciousness are not synonyms
Consciousness doesn’t mean thought .
YOU ARE FREE OF INTERNAL DIALOUGUE .
When you need to be creative , you switch between mind and no mind , that is the only way to be creative .
The thought becomes destructive when not oscillated between mind and no mind , mind is a surviving machine . its not great at being creative .
Breakthrough came from scientists when no mind .
Einstein : thinking is only a sub ordinal part .
The more we realise and learn about our body we see how vast it really is , our dna contains information that can be stored in 1000 , 600 pages books
we know very little , when we combine our mind with that it serves a greater .
EMOTIONS : Emotion arises when body and mind meet , reflection of mind on your body .
When you are not connected with your consciousness , it manifests as a physical thing .
If you really want to know your mind , focus on your body .
Conflict would show the truth . The true feeling reflects in the body .
You can be aware of it .
You can allow the emotion to be there and not be affected by it . All you are is the one observing .
Once this becomes a practice , your unconscious will present itself .
AN EMOTION SHOWS THE AMPLIFIED THOUGHT . It wants to take you over and usually succeeds . The emotion temporarily becomes you .
The thought Keeps feeding emotion and emotion the thought becoming a cycle .
Thought feeds the energy to the emotion .
Basically all emotions are originated from one undifferentiated emotion that has its origin in the thought of not knowing or being aware of who you are .
fear also includes Abandonment other than just danger .
It can be identified as pain ,brain focuses on eliminating pain , but all it can achieve is temporary . In fact the harder the mind struggles to fight it the more the pain .
You will not be free from the pain unless you detach from ego .
EMOTION LITERALLY MEANS DISTURBANCE .
LOVE , PEACE have no opposite they are deep connections .
JOY is a pleasure of the side of pain – pleasure cycle
Pleasure today will give you pain or its absence will .
Even before you have freed yourself from your mind ,you will still have glimpses of immense joy .
Even when the sky is over clouded the sun hasn’t disappeared .
Sun being the love and peace and the cloud being your mind
pain and suffering arise from desire or cravings .
All that a desire is mind seeing pleasure and fulfilment in something external .
As long as I am my mind , I am those cravings .
Just be there , be the Buddha don’t quote him .
Humans have always been in pain , coz of they have stopped being .
Emotional pain is the cause of all disease .
Every pleasure contains the seed of pain , they are opposites .
How easily and quickly an intimate relationship can turn into a painful relationship .
There are two levels of your pain :
Pain you create now
Pain you have carried from your past .
To be followed by other parts very soon !
