“It (your mind) is so dangerous that you can do things that are delusional, imaginative and unintentional. And equally, it is so beneficial that you can create things that can be miracles.” Yogi Bhajan
You already know this: your relationship with your mind can generate great joy or great turmoil. Your relationship with your mind can create peace or anxiety, serenity or depression, stability or agitation.
The biggest problem is that you think you are your mind: every time your mind goes somewhere you go with it. When this happens, your mind owns you and from there you will develop a series of distorted behaviors that mirrors the patterns of your mind; the cycle never stops. When you follow your mind, you don’t know what the roots of your pain are, (as your mind will give you a good story about all your insecurities), and you can’t never heal.
The second important challenge is that you ask your mind for clarity. Your mind, if it leads your life, will always bring confusion. When you desperately look for answers, you disconnect from your true essence and eventually you don’t even know what you were looking for; you are now looking for answers to questions you don’t have.
When we realize how silly we can be with our own mind, then we have a chance to center and remember who we truly are and what needs healing. To create space between you and your mind you need a particular lifestyle that is unique for each of you. Of course, I can help you if you wish.
When you relate to your mind as a system of integration and synchronization instead of a chief in command, when you relate to your mind as a sensory system instead of an authority figure telling you what to do, then you can access everything known and unknown with peace and clarity.
With much love,
What if you choose to invite the quality of silence as your best guest for the month of November? We have co-created a world that does not give a lot of space for silence.
If you are a kid, silence is often given as a punishment. We need to explore the true gifts of silence.
We don’t go into silence because there is nothing to talk about or nothing to fight for or stand for. We don’t choose silence because we are scared to speak up or because we are hiding. We don’t decide to be in silence to check out in fact silence is the way to check in.
Learn to speak with silence in mind. Learn to invite silence into your life to connect to the essence of who you are.
Make silence your favorite guest at your Thanksgiving dinner table. This does not mean that you are quiet literally; this means that you choose to envelope your essence with silence. It will allow you to communicate and connect authentically.
In our noisy lives, silence is one of the best remedies for clarity, ability to make choices and inner peace.
