Beyond the mind

When we become part of the collective mind and our own mind identifies with it, then we lose any sense of perspective. Negativity dominates the collective.

The more we have become dominated by the mind as a human race the more insane we have become, to the point that to our minds it seems normal. We live so far away from the real-life dimension that is now, the conscious moment, that it seems perfectly regular to be in our heads analysing the past and projecting to the future.

The only way to free ourselves is to realise that most of the 60,000 + thoughts we have a day aren’t needed to be taken seriously, 99.99% are the same ones we’ve been having most of our lives and they are just temporary mental forms. Once we realise that, we can then stop energising them by letting them float past, just being the silent witness to it all.

Becoming the observer helps us to realise the real person, the true being, the soul, the I that is us, is beyond the limit of thought and the mind. True intelligence and wisdom are beyond the mind.

Once we stop associating ourselves with the mind and its stories and ego, we free ourselves to become the true person and inner peace comes. The mind is a tool we can use for its creative functions, which are truly amazing, not to be possessed by its sabotaging thought and fragile and involatile ego.

New

Each day we get up and often many follow the same repeating pattern each day.

While there are huge gains to be had from doing small repetitive daily tasks. We all know the compound effect and how daily tasks done often create often unstoppable momentum.

There can always be time for these important steps.

However, life becomes dull, unproductive and lacking in creativity without variety.

Imagine if you set time aside each day to create something new, to learn something new, to make a small improvement to something. Even walking home a different route or pushing the trolley around the supermarket in a different direction. Taking a moment to look up while walking, not for too long, though!

If it was just 10 minutes or half an hour a day.

In a week you will have done 7 things that you’d never previously done, learnt 7 new things, seen new things and so on.

Now imagine doing that for a month, a year, the rest of your life.

Repetition of successful daily rituals is vital, however, add to that the power of doing something new and different, then you have created almost unimaginable possibilities.

Don’t limit yourself to the same routine, just add something new.
