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.

Mind Desires

Although the desires of the world take on many forms, it’s the desire of the mind that makes one seek them. Desires can only subside in stillness because when the mind is still no one desires…

One aspect of the Conditioned Mind is how it’s constantly fulfilling desires. Even when we get down on ourselves, it’s a perverse form of a mind desire. The mind wants to keep desiring the pleasure and discards the unpleasant; it spends most of its time doing this. Whether it’s weaving in and out of traffic, only to catch a red light and have all the cars that you just passed pull up to the same light. Or doing something and asking yourself why you did it; the reason is strictly to fulfill some form of desire. That your own mind questions why you do what you do is how diabolical it is, but understand it’s only this way because of the way it’s been conditioned.

The desire seeking mind is not one which has our best interest at heart. The Conditioned Mind doesn’t really care about that; control is all it cares about. It makes you think fulfilling desires is a necessity. It’s when the mind starts to settle and it loses its hold on you, that’s when you’ll see the fallacy of this. True desire is in stillness not in things, but the desire of stillness is not what the world offers. Desires of the world are based in lies, the desire of stillness is based in truth. Most desires are of the world, this is what the world creates, but it cannot be stilled. It’s only in stillness that one is satisfied, not because it’s given something, but because in stillness a desire never materializes so there is nothing to fulfill…
