Do you really think you’re in control of your mind? Every time there’s a problem, it’s your own mind creating it without permission. So who’s in control or do you purposely choose to create problems?
There isn’t anything that you do that isn’t from you, it may seem like it’s from the circumstances around you, but it’s not. No one can control you, nothing can truly make you feel a certain way, it all comes from your own mind. Everything that bothers you is from you. It all comes from within, it’s just the way your mind has been conditioned over the years. If you don’t like what I’m writing about, it has nothing to do with me, it comes from your own mind. How can words control you unless you allow them to? How can anything control you unless you allow it? It can’t, but it does because you’re probably totally unaware this is even happening. Wake up, life isn’t magical, if you don’t learn to control your mind, your mind will control you like its been doing for your entire life, it’s that simple.
Here is something to ponder, traffic, a boss, a spouse, in laws, children, people, situations, weather, boredom, politics, religions, property taxes, all insurances, unexpected nuisances like flat tires or red lights, accidents, etc, leaking roofs, drivers who don’t drive the way you think they should be driving, illness, circumstances that don’t go your way (poor you) and on and on and on. These are, but aren’t limited to some of the things that bother a person, but not one of them is the true cause of the bother. The cause of every bother comes from your own mind and only because that’s the way it has been developed.
No mind, no problems mean just that. If your mind wasn’t developed to create problems you wouldn’t have any. Every agitation you have comes from your own mind; no mind, no problem. I doesn’t really matter whether you believe this or not, but there is truth here, and very few people want to face the truth, most people much rather live the lie. It’s easier to be controlled by the Conditioned Mind then to face yourself, it’s easier, but not beneficial.
I’m not a know it all, but I will tell you this, I know what I am talking about, I have studied extensively how my mind operates and until I experienced this, my mind controlled me like I was a puppet on a string. It’s not this way today and guess what, if you don’t know your own mind that means it’s controlling your life, whether you want it to or not. You may think you are in control, but upon further investigation when was the last time you didn’t get annoyed when something didn’t go your way? Did you choose to be annoyed or did it happen on its own? Believe what you may, but until you truly want to break free and cut the strings of your Conditioned Mind, just be resigned to the fact that you’re no different than a puppet on a string, except that a puppet doesn’t really have a choice. No mind, no problem, it’s as simple as that.
