To define Mind is a intricate task, as the mind has so many aspects to describe and there is no definite set of idea and knowledge to exactly pin point out Mind. There is no doubt about our physical body as it is very apparent to our senses. With regards to our Mind our idea about Mind is based on experience, experience of our thought processes, thinking patterns, emotions that evoke, dreams that we see during our sleeping hours etc. Mind being a very complex element in any persons life a lot of people face major challenges in their routine life to deal with the mind. Normally it is supposed to be our conscious being/ True inner self that should guide and direct the mind for all our life activities but due to lack of proper knowledge and awareness our mind turns mechanical and directs all our life activities creating a chaos and unpleasantness in our life. Mind needs to be used as just one tool to guide us through the life journey.
So after exploring the basic question as to why we get stressed out and get disturbed when we face simple things in our life like having conversation with someone, at our workplace doing routine work, studying some wonderful concepts to gain knowledge, dealing with finance, in terms of relationships with parents/husband/wife/friends/colleagues, in raising children, and many different areas of our life.
Is this how our life is supposed to be?
Is this how our precious time and energy be spent in all the unnecessary mental chaos so far away from the REAL AND BEAUTIFUL LIFE?
Isn’t this life supposed to be lived JOYFULLY? Every Moment? instead of undergoing all these stress turmoils of emotional hurts and ego conflicts in our relationships with our fellow beings and in relationships with the external world that we live in living or non living by getting influenced by all the likes and dislikes our mind and dividing the world in good and bad thereby being in continuous inner conflict that leads to stress in the mind?
How would our life situations be if we rejoice everything that we do no matter how small the task be? Shouldn’t we realize and experience for REAL the beauty of having human relationships- parents/husband/wife/brother/sister/friends/colleagues, and not just human relationships also rejoicing our relationship with the surrounding living or nonliving, our relationship with the sunrise, our relationship with the birds flying in the sky, our relationship with the sky, the soil, the trees around, the air we breathe in, the water we drink, and all the wonderful things on this planet earth, having meaningful and great conversations with fellow beings that strengthen the human bonding, gaining knowledge that elevates our spirit to live life to the fullest, doing business and deal with the money for personal and family security, in raising children so they can be future great human beings and contribute great things to the society, etc etc. ??????????????
