Power of the Mind

Your mind is a tool but not who you truly are

Problems in life, like ripple effects, where do they truly come from? And is there a way to understand more so we can stop them? I think yes is the answer to that question, now let me ask you, do you know where most problems arise?

“Our life is the creation of our mind” — Buddha

Imagine for a moment the world is just what it is, the world. Now imagine this world inhabits life just like ours does. Now looking down at the world, taking all our rooted beliefs, impressions, learned perspectives of how things are or should be in life, take all that out of the picture. What do we get? Life as it should be, living in the present moment. Now, things tend to get a bit complicated when our mind gets in the way of everything.

One of the biggest issues I have seen is that over time we start believing that our mind is who we truly are. How could the one observing a thought be the thought itself? But rather, you are the one aware of that thought, so therefore not the thought itself. But I think a lot of us get stuck in believing our thoughts are who we are.

“You have power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength” — Marcus…
