“Mind”. The word itself is enough to leave thousands of us blank for the fact that either we do not know anything about it or we have heard every possible notorious thing about mind’s powers.
Mind is the one of the most powerful elements of human beings. Human beings are blessed with a mind. Animals, birds and plants are happy without it. Mind does not have a shape or a size. It does not have a particular location in our body. It is ethereal, celestial. The journey from Mind to No – Mind state is the ultimate journey, the biggest ecstasy ever known to humans.
Mind keeps wandering in past and future like a pendulum. It cannot stay in the present. Your being and your body are always in the present. Your body shares one great thing in common with your being which is that they both reside in the present time. Mind cannot reside in the present. It is either roaming in the past (memories)or in the future (imaginations). Mind’s entire power is to move to and fro between these time extremes.
Start practising silence. By Silence I mean the silence of body and the mind. Sit silently for a few minutes everyday. Neither your body nor the mind should move. Do not let your mind wander with random thoughts like dry leaves in the air. Do not let your body move. It would be difficult in the beginning, but as your continue practicing, you will learn to be silent everytime. The rhydhm will be unstoppable. It will go and on. If you achive that state, a transformation will occur which will purify you completely. After reaching this conscious state of being completely present and with no mind, you will transform all other beings who happen to come in your aura. A magnetic field will surround you all the time.
Achieving this is not difficult. Try and practise yourself. Teach your mind to be silent. Slowly it will start listening to you. However a guide (guru) is greatly appreciated. I have found none myself so far, but an expert conscious master will be a boon for your path.
All the moments we live are dying every moment. Every moment the last moment dies forever and the new one starts. It dies even before you have lived enough of it. Utilize every moment. Time once gone is gone forever. Take out few moments everyday for yourself, for your being. Feel your existence. Get it tune with it, slowly you will realize you are gaining bliss. This will start trasforming you. You can call it mesmerisation, charisma, transformation, ecstasy, bliss, enlightenment, nirvana or any other name you like to give it.
Future is unseen, unpredictable, unrealizable, unstoppable, uncontrollable. There is no meaning in wandering meaning less thoughts for the future which is going to come in its own way. Accept life as it comes. Learn to enjoy and live every moment. Live your life in a such a complete manner so that there are no regrets left even if you died this very moment.
Do not post things for tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes and with your mind in place, it really never comes. Trust me, there is always a new set of problems posed before when you are in tomorrow. Learn to deal with today and this moment. Remember, its here and now or its nowhere and never.
