This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Conflict With Yourself

Your mind is yours, but by some of the things that are done it seems as though someone else is in control. When there is a conflict with yourself, you are the one who you are fighting with…

Who is your fight with? Is it with someone in your family, a boss, or co-worker? Is it with government, religion or society as a whole? Maybe it’s with someone who did something horrible to you or to a family member. It may be some of these, all of these, or none of these, but the real fight is with yourself. It’s not to ignore what happens, but it does no good if you allow it to control you to the point where it causes you to suffer. If there is to be peace in your life, you have to stop allowing anything or anybody to cause agitations that ignite the flame to fight yourself. If we don’t keep your flame extinguished there will be no peace; you can’t be a benefit to others if you can’t be a benefit to yourself.

What needs to be identified is the cause of the agitations that cause you to fight yourself. When this is identified you can decide if you want to continue the fight or not. Once something is done it is done, nothing can undo what has already occurred. If you don’t like what was done you need to do what’s necessary to try and not let it occur again, but just because you don’t want something to happen doesn’t mean it won’t. Your fight is what needs to be identified so yo can do what’s necessary to stop it. In the process if you can change one single event from controlling you or at least be aware of what is blocking your peace, you will truly be on a path that will not only benefit your life, but it will be a benefit to many others. Although it seems like things from the outside are the cause of problems, when you look within you find your problems are with yourself; if you want to be free you will have to stop the fighting, even though it’s your own mind you are fighting with…
