To be stuck in the hold of one’s conditioned grip, is to be lost in a world where everything matters. And the only way everything can be made to matter, is when there’s attachment to make it so.
Be in the world, not of it. Understanding what it means to be controlled by a Conditioned Mind is the only way you will ever break free from its conditioned grip. And what is a conditioned grip? Think about this, is there anything in your life that you have done that gnaws at your very being? Something that you regret either having done or having not done? A deep regret that stays with you, that you can’t seem to let go of. Why do you think this is? It isn’t happening now, and it probably happened many years ago, but yet there it is like it happened last week. This conditioned grip takes on many forms, but the common link is although we use different stories to make up our life, we hold onto them for identification purposes. No matter what it is that our Conditioned Mind uses, it is the same prison for us all. We get locked into a conditioned grip which actually chokes out life by keeping us mentally locked in the prison of our Conditioned Mind. This doesn’t allow us the freedom to experience how life truly is. It is a prison that tells us our head knows better than our heart.
Never hesitate for one second to listen to what your heart tells you. Your heart will never lead you astray. Integrity comes from the heart. Never give in to the worlds pressures, it only offers rewards of emptiness. That’s why most people aren’t satisfied, because they listen to what their head tells them. They put all their eggs in one basket, the basket of the material world and no matter how full it gets, it is always empty.
Make a stand for what is in you heart. Bow down to no one. Idolize no one or no thing. Listen to your heart. Let it be your guide. Ignore the nonsense of the world because that’s what it is; pure utter nonsense. Who can rightfully judge you. Most people can’t even rightfully judge themselves. “Put no stock in what others say and what others say will have no stock.” If things are ever going to change in your life, the nonsense that goes on in your daily life has to be exposed for what it is; pure utter nonsense. Live now or forever hold your peace, because now is the only place you will ever have peace to hold.
We all have feet of clay, not because we want to, but because very few understand the Conditioned Mind and how they are in the the grip of that conditioning. I will never back down from what I know to be true. Whether others see what I see makes no difference. It matters little what happens to me. It matters less what others think. I only say this because it matters little what I think, so if I don’t take what I think seriously then how am I going take what others think seriously? The story of what life is about is made up. Who can claim to truly know this? Life is to complex to know all there is to know. The pea brain mind will make some nonsense up, but our minds have not evolved enough to truly know this answer. We know a lot intellectually, from our head, but we don’t know diddly when it comes to living from our heart. And until we understand this, we will be controlled by our Conditioned Mind and will remain in the prison of its conditioned grip.
