Memory Tape Reactions

We all have our memory tapes that set our reactions in motion. To be in harmony with life we need to learn what plays these tapes. A reaction can not occur if the memory tape isn’t played…

You will have to understand what plays the memory tapes that takes the mind from a place of peace to an agitated state if you are to go beyond the memory tape control. It happens so fast that knowledge alone can’t stop it from occurring. You can be very intelligent, but it doesn’t equate to knowing how your own mind works. What’s needed is Divine Intervention in the form of meditation. When you are in the realm of the thoughtless, you are touching on the Divine. If you’re not willing to develop discipline to settle your mind, agitation will be the minds default state and its memory tapes will continue to control. Your memory tapes have been in place for so long it’s not known what they are, but your reactions to life is proof that they’re in place and also in control. Subtle is the foe of the person who doesn’t know their own mind for they know not what they do.

If you don’t think this is so, just look at the things you do automatically in one single hour. Cell phone, facebook, eating, drinking, tv, reading, so many things are done that are a reaction to a memory tape which creates the mind agitation that starts the process in motion again and again. The only way to stop this vicious cycle is to learn how not to allow the tapes to set the process in motion. The more discipline you develop the less your memory tapes will control your reactions. If you don’t develop the necessary discipline just resign to the fact that your reactions are your master and you are just along for the ride; after all developing discipline takes work and who has time for that. It doesn’t have to be this way, but it will not change on its own. To be in harmony with life one must be in harmony with themselves, but without the necessary discipline to allow this to happen your memory tapes will continue to run the show…
