Is Your Mind Being Kind to You?

By M Zammit

 

Do you have an unkind mind? Or is it ikely to be found in someone who's depressed, someone angry or maybe someone who hates their job? If we treated everyone the same way our minds treated us we would be considered despicable!

Imagine going around telling people “there is no possible way you are good enough to do that” or “you have got to be the stupidest person I know!” So why is it that we allow our inner voice to treat us this way? How much better off would we be without this loudmouth Neanderthal pushing our buttons at our weakest moments?

This inner voice, otherwise known as our subconscious mind, is basically a recording of every tiny bit of data our mind has ever received from its earliest memory. And, if our 'conscious mind' is off in an unconscious state, (which is more common than many realize) these recordings can pose some serious hardships toward our mental state and therefore our physical reality.

How many times do we see people visably upset for the pettiest of reasons! There are so many instances where these recordings can wreak havoc on us so the prospect of turning this Neanderthal into a valuable commodity should rank high up on our “to do lists. The good news is, as sure as this inner voice exists, so too does the potential to mould it, to refine it for our benefit. Make no mistake; the transformation will be challenging, however it may very well be the most beneficial thing you've ever invested in.

In a nutshell, our best defense is our conscious mind - 'conscious' meaning to be aware and when we’re aware of what the mind is doing at any given moment, we can observe it knowing it's the ego living in the past or the future, taking away from the beauty that sorrounds us now. Living in the now is freedom from a tormenting mind, it's a freedom you will gratefully welcome!
