One day I was standing at a bus-stop and glancing around. Suddenly my eyes stopped at a sign board that read MIND COMPUTER SERVICES.
Then I observed there is a slow chanting happening within.
Mind, Mind, Mind, Mind…
Mined, Mined, Mined, Mined…
Mine….d, Mine….d, Mine…d…
(Look, how mind got morphed).
Isn’t it true that mind is nothing but a mine of memories related to me and mine?
So thoughts emanate from that mine of vast memory and these memories are mainly related to how ‘me & mine’ should have been! And from there jump towards how ‘me & mine’ should be! And there is incessant stream of thoughts.
The field of mind is mined, full of explosives! That’s the reason we explode with emotions. Having space between those memories, minimise hitting mines. This way, number of thoughts, especially the unnecessary ones can be kept at a minimum leading to peace and calmness.
Since mind is a mine of memories and potential mine(explosive), reclamation of mine is essential. That is restoration of mind to natural and psychologically usable state!
How to do this?
Start observing the origin of thought, from where each of the thought is emanating. Is it from head, toe, heart……?
Try this now & see what happens?
Are you in stillness, stillness of mind?!
