There’s a Mind Behind The Mind

Standard

These days am being regularly advised by my dearest hubby to practice doing nothing , he thinks am a restless soul and that i cannot stop doing things , even if am lying down on bed he says am in continuous movement where i keep talking about daily tasks or things i have to do or remember for the other day or even future .

And i really agree with him, i find myself restless very often when i think i must relax and need time to unwind a bit, and the more i try to relax and do nothing, i introspect that my mind never ceases to think , it thinks , and thinks even during the night like am in a whirlpool of thoughts.

He is right i must practice the art of doing nothing like he does when he sits quietly for some time in a very peaceful and relaxing composure and literally does nothing, i don’t see his eyes blinking when they are close, nor their is any hand or leg movement or anything i see that disturbs him from him. But this doesn’t happens with me and am aware of my eyes that in are in movement when they are closed to relax which i think should not happen when you are doing nothing.

The movement reflects thoughts and the continuous nature of doing , doing as in thinking, remembering like all the cognitive activities of the mind and like my hubby says “there’s a mind behind the mind” that will make you do everything and even let you do nothing , we must learn to know about the mind that works behind this mind that we are conscious about.

 

I believe its really hard to do nothing because the mind has its own powerful mechanism that would never stop doing, because we have these senses that are in continuous work mode and we keep tracking sound, smell, taste, touch and vision, so i always protest about this doing nothing activity and i think i really cannot help them close and so i have to intake all the information that comes to me and analyse them as this is my basic instinct of doing .

I think there’s an answer to this problem where senses cannot be closed nor shut down but they can be controlled which is why there is a mind behind the mind as my hubby says.

It has a very deep meaning and am still trying to know every bit of it from him, but unfortunately am not a very good listener as when he explains and talks spiritual, i could barely give him 5 minutes and keep saying I know this , I already know this. Its not a good thing and i acknowledge my weakness of not listening to him when he talks of spirituality and life and even guilty of not reading many of his spiritual accounts in his diary or blog.

The mind behind the mind is often dormant i believe because we are aware and conscious of only one mind that stores , restores remembers and does all the cognitive and psychological activities, but it lacks the potential to be controlled or to be used wisely, hence we become slave to our own conscious mind that never stops doing , it only takes and takes more within and we cannot do anything but to keep doing.

Well i don’t have any recipe as of yet for practicing this simple yet supreme art , but If at all You and I become aware of the mind behind the mind we could practice the art of doing nothing. but am afraid it will take some while for me to learn this art from my hubby because he does it with utmost ease and am still years away from learning the practice of doing nothing , where i have to first manage the art of being a good listener .

 

 

i Vision : Steve Jobs

Standard

I dont know how to write about this, but last night i had a dream that i had a brief talk with Steve Jobs, the most amazing lifetime achiever who brought about a revolution with his brand apple and the i phones. I haven’t read much about him nor i have an i phone, they are too expensive for me to buy right now.

I had always liked the i phone, so much that whenever i see it  in someone else s hand, i request them to give it to me for a moment and explore it so much that they order me to return it back to them that very moment. am not unhappy for not being able to own it because its ok but someday i know i shall have one for me. 

I have read some articles and heard about Steve jobs from my fiance and about his apple  company and aware about i phones, but i could never imagine that ill be having Steve jobs a part of my dream, it cannot be, never ever, that some foreign figure could happen to exist in my dreams, am amazed myself .

In my dream i saw Steve jobs where he had this charisma of having a passionate and enlightened feel about him, just like an enlightened and peaceful soul would have like we have seen the meditating Buddha or the standing swami Vivekananda having a peaceful vibe in and around him in pictures. As soon i saw him i recognized him and began to talk, addressing him as Kanha Ji ( Lord Krishna) and not by his name or anything, and narrated  about, my life and the troubles, me and my fiance are going through in life, i could feel like i was in presence of a godly figure and that god knew whose help i needed and he sent someone who could help me to find a way out of my problems, so i requested him to give a fragment of his vision for us, to be our guiding light and inspiration, to hold our hand and lead us to light, i saw him listening to me so very patiently, that i ended narrating the problems anymore or requesting to him, just to realize that he cannot understand Hindi and again i started over again and rephrased all that i had said in Hindi to English and again he stood there listening very patiently. After i had ended describing in English, he said nothing for a moment and took a while to say just this word “alright” and smiled at me and then faded out in swirl and was no where to be seen. I was still there sitting feeling immensely happy and went on thinking that i have none of his creations or his designs but i felt so proud all the time for having his vision and his light and his unseen support forever for my life. 

And since Morning i have been thinking whether it was for real or just a dream or that it meant to be something that i must understand and put to life, am no where near to technology, corporate culture, company life, or not even in the mainstream of life if i literally go on to express about myself and how my life is, coming from an average family and with an average life. 

For me Steve jobs is so far far a thing to think or be known to, all i know is about the i phone and nothing special about him and still i cannot realize or digest that i had him in my dream, but being an educated girl with a psychology background i know it can happen because we live in an age of technology and so much of information exposure, that our unconscious mind stores information that we come across and stimulates similar thoughts that we wish to know about, if not in real than maybe imaginary thoughts and dreams may help us to get them.

Though its all dream actually but i  feel very special about it for it happened to me and not many can experience or feel the way i feel which is why i write about it to make it unforgettable experience of life. And it becomes more special as i relate it to kanha ji’s  blessing for me, a divine blessing from him in his form and the way that he thought best would be caught by me. Because gods dont appear to you so easily so they send their messengers to help you find your solutions to life’s problems.

The Prophecy : Hate Crimes

Standard

What Nostradamus Says Will happen Next ..man shall become a man-eater !

And that day is not too far, as we all see and witness the truth where the skies wont fall nor the earth will tear apart to end the mankind . But the mankind alone will be victim of their own vice and evil that would end their existence forever.

In the wake of so many unfolding events that have shaped the face of this earth that looks  more cruel and devilish, there is hardly any hopes left for other generations.

We have progressed remarkably in terms of technological growth and made our lives utmost pleasant be it homes or at workplace, with the spurt of information and technological advancement in every forte is believable in fact, but the truth remains unseen, that we have forgot to change our mindset which still hasn’t progressed much.

Still many sections of our society and many people at individual level have not embraced the newness as for them being progressive and following the revolution is still a distant concept, which they do not wish to live or realize.

This happens because on one hand there is a section of people who are in the mainstream, running, progressing and moving up the ladder of change and live an enriching life with global experiences, while on the other hand we have a section of people who are trapped in their own thoughts, contemplating their own ideas and crave to match those with the ones who are in the mainstream .

The people who are either forced to step back or who choose to live this way tend to find themselves a midst happening things which they are not able to comprehend or cope with, in such situations they feel stifled as soon they realize that how far behind they are left in the mad race, and as soon they come to terms with this reality they try hard to make things even for them.

Some people who are kind enough follow the nice route like working hard, or doing more struggles or starting things with a scratch to reach or match to, and for the others its a mad race to win and they find the ugliest route possible to match or reach up, to feel that they are no less than those they envy .

Now the behavioral actions that these people take up is beyond extreme and in some cases shall be termed as inhuman as they turn to harm those people with whom they envy or wish to even up and no other way can they see lest to end the competition than the race itself,  no more they shall have to worry about follow ups or running anymore and this is how they end things and win it over.

The world still does not wait or stop to see where things go bad or why do they actually happen the way it shouldn’t have been, but then we all think alike that unless it happens to us we are least bothered about escalating the issue and even if we think about it at the ground level by doing some basic research that it was all the work of a mad man’s unfulfilled desires, we learn to tolerate and become patient with it with time, because there is law, there is a system and there is humanity that we follow being Educated Reformists.

Do we ever think that, we need to look  into the human mind, the people on streets the people whom we left behind, so that they do not come in front of us, all of a sudden to question or answer it with a kill, we must reflect into their psychology before the world ends for us or they end the world for us.

The atrocious killings of humans during war,  hate crimes,  massacres ,mass shooting, rapes, physical or mental torture, brutality meted out to innocent people and all this is happening even right now during this moment while i write this blog . This world is on the brink of collapsing where there would be no space for the people to run or cherish anymore, for there is so much of evil taking rounds and people are day by day becoming more individualistic, practical, selfish , self centered and running .

Its time we should see what we do and turn the pages of other people’s lives because criminals or people who hate us are among ourselves and we must identify and help them to help avert such fateful events that have already happened in past and quite recently. its time we should acknowledge that technology alone  cannot help us to live in peace and survive rather the humans are capable enough to help survive and live in peace .

We can do without progress, revolution, technology and other things that make our life great in times today, but we cannot do without peace and ability to survive, we are constantly living in the age where our survival is under threat.
