Everyone has untapped creativity in their amazing minds. Unfortunately, it remains that way for most of our life, simply because our minds are too busy with the endlessly repeating mindstreams that serve no purpose.
Yeah, the ones like ‘you’re a failure’, ‘see, no one likes me’, ‘I was the ugliest person there’, ‘I am sure I will get fired first’, ‘they’re laughing at me’, ‘I bet she earns more than me’, and so on. We repeat the same stuff, without purpose, without any change…on and on.
Imagine if we stopped that and the mindstreams were constructive, creative and with purpose.
It could be that way, we simply need to become conscious of all these repeating thoughts and simply choose to observe them, be the silent witness. Then all that space we create, all that energy that isn’t wasted on these destructive thoughts can be turned to do the most amazing things.
Think and you sabotage. Be awake, aware and conscious and your mind becomes the most powerful tool you could imagine. We can all unlock our potential simply by giving the sabotaging thought space to be without response and it dissolves to allow us to flourish.
Once we say ‘my car’ or ‘my iPhone’ or ‘my…` anything it becomes part of us in terms of how the mind reacts and perceives material physical objects.
If someone scratches our car or we crack the screen on our phone it is felt the same as if the attack was on us, like we wear scratched or injured. The mind brings pain and suffering.
Our everyday ‘consciousness’, which in reality isn’t consciousness but is a mind dominated dreamlike state, constantly in thought, has no energy for the background, which is always there and is peaceful. The mind is concerned with its mental objects, our thoughts, and our possessions, physical objects.
We rarely have a consciousness of the background, for example, a ticking clock, the crunch of the gravel as we walk, a bird singing, a car passing, someone singing, the music that is playing and so on. The mind and its fragile ego are too worried about the car being scratched or the fact that some other minor thing has happened, to even notice or give energy to the background. We completely miss it, unaware of its existence.
True beauty and amazing things happen in the background, there is calm, peace and stillness there, away from the suffering that objects bring us. Yet we will often spend our whole lives only being aware of objects mental or physical unless we choose to become truly aware of the moment and all that is there.
