Creating Space

Concerning the mind, if the old isn’t cleared out there won’t be any space for anything new, but the old will not clear until it is seen space is needed to allow in the new…

From the time one begins their life in this form the mind is constantly processing and storing information. The incessant mind never stops this storing process and constantly draws on this familiarity, but this leaves very little space for anything new to become known. Your instilled foundation would need something close to a nuclear explosion to dislodge it, but when the mind is allowed to settle it creates space and the world as it’s known ceases to exist.

Think of it in this way, when a room is to be redone in a house, the first thing that‘s needed is to create space so the new stuff can fit in where it’s wanted. If one has to work around the old stuff it would make placing the new stuff in the room much more difficult. If the new stuff was put in with the old stuff it just wouldn’t fit properly and it probably wouldn’t match either. Matching the new with the old takes a skill that most people don’t naturally possess. This usually has to be taught, this is where meditation comes in.

The process of meditation helps to clear out the mind (create space). If this isn’t done, the mind as it is with the room will remain cluttered with the old and the new, although it may be put in, will not add any enhancement to the room. After all, this is what we are trying to do, enhance life. No one changes anything just to change it, we change a philosophy or a belief because the one that’s in place needs to be redone; for whatever reason it’s not working any more. So clear out the old and create a space that will allow nothing in but the new…
