The Mind and its Power of Us
|Japanese Gardens - Oregon 2011|
Have you ever given much thought to how your mind runs your life? The sages were all very familiar with the power of the mind. Negative mind, positive mind and conscious mind all play a part in how we experience life.
Negative mind is one that lives in fear and what if's. When we live in negative mind we are not living through the soul but rather hiding in the cluttered mind. One tends to repeat patterns in life and then wonder why circumstances do not change. It is easier to stay in a static state rather than move into a conscious mind. Living in a conscious state of mind sees opportunity as a blessing and not a threat.
On the other hand, positive mind is all about finding opportunities and acting upon them. A balanced positive mind is enthusiastic, optimistic and constructive. But sometimes a good thing can get out of alignment and when that happens to positive mind there is an over confidence and a forcing nature to get what you want in an over expansive way.
A neutral mind is somewhere in between. It deliberates the information from positive and negative mind and makes a conscious decision. The neutral mind sees things for what they really are. The neutral mind then acts on fulfilling you and your destiny.
The key then is to move towards a neutral mind, as it helps you to open up to your soul and this is the way to changing your life and living fully.
