One of the most important aspects of human evolution and soul development is understanding the importance of mind management. The mind is a fantastic tool, but we have to learn how to manage our minds properly. Moreover, we have to wake up to the fact and realize that we are not our minds! Our minds are something we have – our minds are a fantastic tool – but our minds are not who we are. Our minds are a gift that has been given to us to use, not to be used by. That’s the important point. We’re supposed to be the masters of our minds! Not slaves to our minds!
Unfortunately, that is not the case for most people today.
Most people today are unfortunately managed by their minds. And by this I mean, most people are driven by their random thoughts, inherited belief systems and conditioned responses, and they mistake these thoughts and reactions for who they are. Instead of understanding this is how they have been programmed since birth. Most people are not aware of this yet.
Additionally, it is important to understand that the appearance generated by the sum total of these random thoughts and conditioned responses that we have been programmed with is what we call our “personalities”. In other words, each person’s personality is an expression of the way in which our conditioned responses and beliefs determine our reactions to events and situations. This is how we define who we are.
But again, this appearance is not who we really are.
The good news is that more and more people are waking up to this today. More and more people are beginning to understand the power of their minds. This is the great revolution in consciousness that is happening on Earth right now. The Great Awakening – the birth of the awakening consciousness. The awakening to the fact that we are something much more, much greater. The awakening to the fact that we are all Divine Souls on an eternal journey—and that each one of us has been endowed with a fantastic tool, which is the mind. Our minds. But to achieve the heights and glory we are destined for, we must first learn to control this wonderful tool, we must learn to control our minds.
This is why all the great teachers and spiritual masters teach mind control or mind management as I call it.
Without mind management, there can be no true evolution or soul development.
Mastery of the mind is such an essential aspect of soul development because without it, there is no freedom. In other words, without mind management we are not free. By this I mean that the ability to manage or control our minds is what the proper use of free will is all about. This is why conscious mind management is so important.
Put briefly, we could say conscious mind management means the ability to think about what you want to think about—when you want to think about it. It also means the ability to otherwise be here now , to be present, when you do not choose to think about anything specific.
There are many ways to work with and achieve this goal of mind management. I, personally, think this subject is so fascinating and important that I have written several books about understanding and using the amazing power of our minds wisely. These books including “The Road to Power / Fast Food for the Soul” and “The Awakening Human Being – A Guide to the Power of Mind” as well as my free e-book “The Mental Laws – Understanding the Way the Mind Works” which you can get for free on my Web site (http://www.beamteam.com).
It’s all about stepping into your true power
But why, you may be asking, is taming the mind is so important? The short answer is… because thought is the causative factor in the Universe when it comes to our experience.
In brief we can say the Universal Mind or God or Source is creating all of manifest creation, i.e. the greater reality. But at the same time, each human being’s thoughts are determining his/her experience of manifest creation, this greater reality.
As I said above, at the present time, most people on the planet are unaware of this—and are unaware of how their minds work. They do not realize that their thoughts, in the most concrete of fashions, are creating their experience of reality. As a result, so many people often feel they are being victimized by outside forces and circumstances which they believe are beyond their control instead of feeling they are able to live and experience the reality of their choice.
When we don’t understand the way our minds work and how they are shaping our experiences, it is easy to see why many people may feel that they are victims of outside events and circumstances. But however unlikely this may seem, no one is being victimized. Each one of us is in truth creating his/her own experience of reality, each and every minute of the day, whether or not we are aware of it.
Thus the most important realization in relation to mind management is this. Mind is the cause of our experience – not outside circumstances. That is the amazing power of our minds. And it’s endlessly fascinating to contemplate this over and over again. Because when we really get it, when we really understand that thoughts create our experience of reality, we can begin to take our power back. We can begin to regard the mechanism of mind and look at what we are thinking and connect this to what we are experiencing!
Which is when we discover the true importance of mind management.
Which is when we begin to understand why taming the mind is so important!
Because without the ability to manage our minds, we will always be victims of our random thoughts and the belief systems we have been programmed with. But as we learn to make the connection between our experience and our thinking, we can also learn to consciously choose to think and entertain better and more enlightened thoughts. And then when this happens - well WOW! Our world changes! Our lives change! It’s just so amazing. Yes, amazing amazing amazing!!
Blessings to you on this day!
