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.

Unconsciously Controlled

Thoughts are a part of life, but they don’t have to be a controlling part. If there isn’t awareness of your thoughts they will unconsciously be attached to which will lead you to unconsciously being controlled by them…

If there isn’t awareness of your own thoughts, there won’t be anyway of knowing how much you are unconsciously controlled by them. Without this awareness you’ll be taken on an unconscious ride. Life doesn’t directly do anything to anyone, but thoughts happen and they determine the kind of ride you will endure. Awareness of your arisen thoughts are essential if you’re to not be controlled by them. Thoughts are a natural part of life and there’s no way of controlling the ones that arise, but I have found that awareness of them allows for a split second of space that can be used to determine whether or not the thought controls you or not; remember it’s the attachment to a certain thought that causes suffering, not the thought itself.

The Conditioned Mind is diabolical and unless there’s some awareness of how controlling your thoughts actually are, they will control you as if you were a puppet on a string. So subtle is this that even if you are doing things that you label as loving, if these thoughts aren’t watched they will eventually also control you; remember control is control regardless of what label is applied to the thought. This is why the Conditioned Mind is diabolical because of its subtleness in using whatever it can to remain in control. Thoughts will arise, but they don’t have to control you. If there isn’t awareness of this, your thoughts will be unconsciously attached to which will allow them to unconsciously be in control…
