A Settled Mind Notices

See how a mind agitation arises from your conditioning, it’s not there because you were born that way or that’s just the way you are, it’s there strictly because it’s the way you’ve been conditioned.

It’s very important to get in touch with the conditioning of why one does what they do, but to go beyond this conditioning to get to a deeper Universal Truth which leads to a greater understanding of humanity and the nature of all things, one’s mind must settle to the point where the conditioning is not just noticed, but it also loses its control. If this is just noticed, but still holds you in its grip, the mind will remain in a state of agitation constantly needing the present moment to be different. This is regardless of what’s happening because wanting the moment different doesn’t change what’s happening. See how this agitation arises strictly from one’s conditioning. It’s not there because that’s just the way you are or you were born that way, it’s there because it’s the way you’ve been conditioned.

To go beyond the conditioning that has so much control over you, there has to be a moment of space created that stops the incessant thoughts which keeps the mind spinning in circles. One thought then another and another and another, it doesn’t stop until there’s awareness this is happening. Sit with some method of meditation strictly for the purpose of developing discipline and watch this discipline settle the mind. This is how it happened for me, I sat and lo and behold my mind began to settle and I started noticing the conditioning and just how much control it had over me. This is the core of what was revealed to me and it’s the core of my writings. The more space there is between one’s thoughts the more discipline there is to notice the conditioning and when it’s noticed, one can then do what’s necessary to go beyond it and watch its control fall away.
