Our minds are like water, but what happens is sometimes it gets frozen and becomes solid. Also water will take on the shape of whatever container it is in and that’s exactly what happens to an unconscious mind; in this case the container is whatever you attach to. The key when it comes to the mind is to make sure it’s in a container that takes on the shape of love. Water is impacted by many things, tides, wind, weather, and so on, and so is the mind impacted by many things. When one is conscious of this the mind is somewhat less impacted, but it’s totally impacted when you are unconscious of this. The unconscious mind will say jump and you will jump, and depending on the conditioning you may even ask how high. If you don’t take responsibility for how your mind is shaped, there are plenty of things and people that will become the container that will shape it for you.

Even though it seems like there’s a choice in this, there really isn’t because of the conditioning in place.

This article is strictly to be viewed as a pointer so you see how all of this limits you and to possibly allow you to see what containers (attachment) you are allowing to impact you and shape your mind.
