Giving or Taking

It’s really very simple to understand the mind. It can be broken down into two mind states, giving or taking. Everyone who is alive will be guided by one or the other…

There’s a lot of stuff (thinking) that goes on between the ears that determines what mind state you will be guided by and when it’s broken down, you will be guided either giving or taking. To me everything that happens is the result of something previous so the results of living in a state of giving or taking are vastly different. This isn’t to apply a label that one is right and one is wrong, but if investigated it can be seen how giving produces results aligned with love, kindness, peace, harmony, joy, and taking aligns you with results of anger, greed, hate, unhappiness, discontent and do on. I had a mind of taking for many years and this resulted in much suffering in the form of feeling isolated and alone most of the time. As a result of this, I used many different things to try and not feel this way, but to no avail because not matter what, the taking mind state would always return.

Some years ago I began understanding the different results of these two mind states and started developing certain things that put me more in line with giving. A mind of taking is selfish in nature and produces selfish results; desirable results if you’re based in the material world. A mind of giving has no selfishness to it and the results prove this. This doesn’t mean the taking conditioning is gone for good, but it has lessened to a large degree and hence there is literally no more isolation in me. If the difference of these two mind states aren’t seen it seems the taking state controls more; it’s because of the influences of the material world that make this so. Even though by being alive you are part of the world, when you finally wake up what’s seen is you don’t have to allow the selfish collective mind state of taking to control you…
