Most of us are not aware of our mind and how it works? Amazing worlds of our minds are more beautiful than our imagination and more complex than the whole universe. It is a small universe of its own and have its own mysteries, opens on those who try to discover it. Let’s talk about mind, how it works, what is it all about. How it thinks and how one can train it?
The mind is a logical and thinking mechanics of human being. It processes anything logical and concludes something out of it. It is fluid in nature. When nothing is given to it, it starts processing the unfinished tasks and thinking junks to conclude something from it. So that those finished and completed files could be arranged in their designated folders. It works continuously without any rest.
The more you use it the more it expands, the less you use it the less it expands. By nature it is growth-oriented it wants a daily dose, otherwise it dwells on its own unfinished businesses, it kicks owner into fears and phobias, obsessions and compulsions and much more.
It has the power to change the chemistry of our bodies. It consists of two parts. One is the known part, which is present and is less mysterious as compared to part. It consists of events, thinking, and unfinished works. Which are known as conscious and subconscious in popular psychology. While the second part is unknown which is referred to the unconscious; the more mysterious; things thought from far past of human imagination, childhood, adolescence and all other developmental milestones are involved in it.
The first part is available to us at any given time, we can tap it without others help. We are aware of it and can respond to it at any instance. However, the second part is beyond taping not because its hidden or hard to tap but rather it is more easily tapped but, we spend no time with this part. If we have time for it. This part is recovered if only we are able to sit quietly and observe what is going on.
It needs our in-depth involvement and engagement to finish the unfinished. As a professional therapist, counselor and psychologist, I believe after conducting hundreds of sessions the only successful therapy if exists is self-therapy. Staying with ourselves, observing and analyzing ourselves. The most difficult thing which I have observed in my sessions is that we as human beings avoid our encounter with ourselves.
We can watch movies for hours, sports for days and our own melodramas for years, however, we are afraid of taping our unknown part of mind by unleashing its powers, when we cannot do anything we want to do. Thinking is a process of our input and a mixture of input and output combined. We think in bulges and groups. Thought cannot be thought in isolation.
The choice is among groups. If we start thinking sad, sad group of our thinking will be selected by our automatic system of unknown part of mind and will be assisted by memory to start from first and the worst sad thought, then gradually it will shift its focus to less worst than like pendulum it will go there and here, from less to more and from more to less and it will continue the moment we scare ourselves. If we choose to think happy thoughts it will give us all possible choices to think happy thoughts.
The moment we know this that we can train our mind this is the time we feel pure joy. By default, happy thoughts are more nurturing than sad thoughts which are destructive. The conclusion of today’s post is that we must not allow ourselves to think negative thoughts even once in a day.
Negative thoughts will subside and something else will take its place. We can change each and everything about us; name, position, education e.t.c. but if we don’t change our mind the experiences will repeat its self again and again. Be happy adventurers of mind. That’s all..!
