The Beautiful Mind: 2

In the last blog we understood how to control thoughts? How to settle the mind down?

The answer is simple.

Tame the demon or the demon tames you 🙂
Just keep this restive chap busy !

This blog talks mostly on belief systems and how it drives to what we perceive.

Imagine as a kid, the first time you saw a vessel on the stove , you were tempted to touch it. The willingness to touch the vessel eventually dissolved. This is primarily because of two reasons :

1. You touched the vessel sometime, burnt your hand, ended up hurting yourself.

2. Your parents rebuked you or maybe advised you not to do so.

Over then you developed a belief of not touching a hot vessel, because you might end up hurting yourself.

Now, let’s try to magnify this little example over our life.

Just like the child who was innocent about the situation made a belief on two basis. First being his experience and second being the relying on the experience of his/her trusted ones. In a similar manner, our belief systems evolve from either our experiences or induced experiences of people we hold trust in.

And for that matter, even the people whose beliefs have been conducted us, have formed them from yet another group of people they trusted in.

This is how the belief system evolves.

Newton’s  law states that Everything is relative and nothing absolute, which applies to real life too.

Let’s look at this carefully.

Person A has a dataset DA of his experiences and induced experiences. Person B also a dataset DB of his experiences and induced experiences. Now, faced by the same situation, person A forms a belief based on his DA and person B forms a belief on his DB. They might overlap, They might be completely opposite or they might be the same(which is rare). Thence, the belief turns out to be relative and not absolute.

Things are comparable when they our absolute or rather on the same ground. Now, if the grounds are different, there lies no place for comparison.

Thence, belief is not comparable.

Corollary: Belief is neither questionable nor enforceable.

Hope you have understood what I intend to say. If not, feel free to drop me an email at sgshristi21@gmail.com

Would be elaborating on this, so follow me and be updated.

Happy Exploring ! 🙂

The Beautiful Mind: 1

So, I recently started reading a book and the insights that I am getting from the book is like, the curiosity of a little officious child being answered. Its like the mind which is known to be dodging here and there, recklessly just got placated by wisdom.

I’m sure if not all, about 70 percent of you might relate to what I am intending to express here.

Let me tell you a story,

There was this pundit who was approached by people to solve in their conundrums. One fine afternoon, parched a man came upto him. The man had a unique wish, he wanted it to be granted by the divine pundit. He asked, ” Oh! Heavenly being, Can by your powers, I have the way out to get all my wishes granted?” The divine source smiled and said, I’ll give you a demon. You can engage him and ask him for whatever you want, he will do it for you. There’s just one limitation, the moment you are not able to engage it, it will kill you.
The pacified man, being granted with the wish and went home. He started commanding the demon for his works, wishes. Initially he felt happy, but as time passed he failed to engage the demon and as per the divine source the demon would now be engaged in killing him. He ran to the divine source for help. The divine source vanquished the demon. But, he had an important lesson to teach the man. He said, your mind is similar to this demon, you can have all your wishes granted, practically anything you want, you don’t have to ask me also, Just one thing, keep it engaged . The man understood the statement and started practicing it, the more he engaged his mind in positive aspects the more results he yielded.

The relationship of our mind is like a tiger on which we are riding. It runs chases, throws us and does what it wants. But, only when we are able to tame it, to culture it, it forms a habit to obey it’s ringmaster, us.

The fact is brain like all other organs is like a machine, rather tool to obey our tasked voluntarily and in an awared manner. But, the complication is that because of lack of mind-culture, it commands us rather than we commanding it. And that is key here. The solution to every issue.

Mind awareness, mind culture.

This is just one part of the many parts that I am about to share.

Read on to dive deeper.

Keep Achieving! Stay Happy!
