Chattering Mind

If there’s ever to be peace in your life, discipline so you can see the mind is always chattering, why these mind agitations arise, and how to quiet them will have to be developed…

Until one learns a discipline that allows the mind to stop chattering, what is used to keep it chattering determines what your state of being will be. There are many many things that are used to keep the mind chattering and your conditioning determines this. Whether the chattering mind manifest as sex, drugs, alcohol, food, false pride, trying to control life and others, talking about others in a slanderous way, responding to this post, or whatever is being used to keep the mind chattering, it will not stop until the agitation is satisfied that keeps it chattering, but even then it doesn’t remain satisfied for long so it basically will always be chattering and agitated until it’s learned to be still; simple, but very difficult.

When these mind agitations arise, if the necessary discipline has been developed the mind will stop chattering and your instinctual reactions will be based in love. If not the reactions will probably be of a self serving nature and manifest in some form that’s probably not conducive to your well being. So it’s beneficial to develop discipline that allows the mind to stop chattering so you’re not controlled by your agitations. If discipline isn’t developed the arisen agitations will constantly keep the mind chattering as the agitation has to be satisfied, and something will be reached for to satisfy the agitation I guarantee you that. Most of us are conditioned to have a chattering mind and are controlled by our agitations. That’s why it’s so important to develop discipline because to me it’s the only thing I’ve found that stops the mind, well maybe not stops it, but at least slows it down so the mind agitations lessen. So learn to have a mind that quiets somewhat because the choice is to have one that is always chattering and agitated. As long as it’s always chattering it will control you as if you were a puppet on a string; this is the choice, but without discipline there really isn’t one…
