Mind is not our Choice?

 Mind is not in our hands or Our Mind is not our Choice.  How is that Mind is not our choice?

Scenario One: JoAnn and her Birthday Gift.

Day One:

JoAnn wanted to buy a gift for her friend’s birthday. She had 100 bucks and she found a wonderful watch and when she was about to purchase it, someone gently requests her that they wanted the watch and JoAnn felt sorry for them and let them buy it.

Day Two:

JoAnn went to a different shopping center and she was surprised to  find the same watch again but now she came to know that someone has already ordered it and now she approaches the concerned person to ask gently that she was in need of the watch but she were not successful in getting it.

Mind Analysis:I helped a person on Day One and in Day Two when the same thing happened to me, no one helped me.         Attitude:She now develop a Attitude that not to help others.

Day Three:

A Friend of JoAnn asked her to lend 100 bucks for a medical emergency. She just replied,” I don’t have any money now”. JoAnn went to a shop to buy some watch which was available for 100 bucks as it was getting delayed. She also felt sad about the lie she said to her friend

Day Four:

When the watch had been gifted to her friend , her friend replied that, I have so many watches and it could have been better if I had got something else. JoAnn felt sorry that she had taken three days to present a gift and that she was not appreciated. She also had a thought that,”I could have helped a friend who had an emergency.”

Mind Analysis: I did not help the Person in Day Three and gave a present to a person on Day Four and I was not appreciated. Attitude:Its better to help a person who is in need rather than who doesn’t ask for help.                                                    

All the Attitudes a person have turns into his character.How is that Attitude turns into a Character?

Scenario Two:  Dong  Lee Mind and his Attitude

Dong Lee Attitude: Smoking is injurious to health and I came to know that many smokers died of cancer.

Dong Lee goes to a party where everyone in the party smokes, some compels him to smoke but he was so strong that he did not accept their request. Everyone in  the party came to an conclusion about Dong that Dong never smokes(Dong Character).

When someone someday finds Dong Lee smoking, they would question him, I thought you would never smoke?

Dong would reply that I started this habit recently since I thought smoking one or two cigars per week is not so injurious( Changed Attitude).

A Attitude of a person varies from Time to Time and the character of a person is what seen by others.

Example:

  • I never thought you would do like this.
  • I did not expect this from you.
  • I believed you but you cheated me.

We assume a Character on a person and would  view the person as the character and if the attitude change, the character change.

If Attitude of a Person can Change, why is that I am not able to change my habit?

We just need to understand that “Our Mind is not our Choice” or in other words, “Our Mind is not in Our Hands.

Why is that Mind is not our Choice and How to make it as Our Choice?

The Brain is an Organ which receives constant inputs from sense organs in the body and stores the information and the Output of the information can be called as a thought.

A series of thoughts can be called as Mind.

Example: I forgot where I kept my pen?

Upon Analyzing the information stored in the brain like where you went, whom you met and if you had given to someone, these thoughts can be put together as Mind.

The Information you receive will change day by day and the hence chances are that your mind changes and so does your attitude and character changes.

Now, The Real problem is if we want to really change something it seems to be very difficult.

Example:

  • I want to reduce my weight. Even though I have read a lot of information about being slim; I am unable to become slim.
  • I want to quit my bad habits such as smoking, but I am unable to do so; may be I think I got addicted.

So How to change an Habit or to become a better person?

We need to know about the Three Kinds of Mind to understand how we can change or how we can use our mind to become a better person.

  1. Conscious Mind – Thoughts
  2.  Sub-Conscious Mind – Habits (Character- Attitude)
  3. Unconscious Mind – Sleep

In Simple Words, Sub-Conscious Mind is the one which controls Habits. It will make you to remember even if you forget it.

Example:

Brushing the Teeth is an Habitual Action we do daily which is controlled by Sub-Conscious.

But in Day One, You would not have remembered that we need to brush our teeth and our mother would have reminded us to do so.

Thus it takes nearly a month for a subconscious mind to remind us an activity to do daily.

In Short we Just need to follow the action for 5 days. The Next Two days(Saturday and Sunday) again mother has to wake us up and then ask to brush our teeth.

To Change an Habit and to change ourselves, We just need to do the activity for 5 days.

Heart is the symbol of love?

Heart is treated as a Symbol of Emotion.

  • Do What your Heart says
  • Follow your Heart
  • Don’t take it to your Heart
  • You are in my Heart
  • You stole my Heart
  • You made me a broken Heart

The above sentences are always referred by people and if we think deeper, Mind is the one which is related with thoughts.

So, What is the function of the Heart?

The Heart is just another organ in the body just like Lung or Kidney.

The Heart is just a pump to supply oxygenated Blood(Blood contains 92% water by volume) to all parts of the body where the primary task of lung is to supply oxygen to the blood and that of kidney to purify the blood where the nutrients can be sent to all the body cells for their normal functions.

Hence, Emotions don’t arise from the Heart.

Run Lola Run:

Suppose we run, the Heart beats faster and we breath faster than normal. The more we run, more the energy is used and the body needs more nutrients and thus heart beats faster to supply necessary nutrients. When all the nutrients in the blood are exhausted, there is no more energy left and we would slow down or  sit for relaxing and drink a glass of glucose since it can directly dissolve in the blood for instant energy.

Mind the Real Symbol of Emotion:

The Mind represents the Individuality while rest of the organs are same in every person. Its the Mind that distinguishes from one person to another. The Other bodily differences such as hair color, body shape are due to genes in the DNA.

Hence, Emotion is an experience from the Individual mind based on the external influences.

Scenario where Mind causes Emotions:

Person-A is happy 🙂 to hear a pop song and Person-B likes rock song.

Person-B is Sad 😦 due to the death of a friend and Person-B is happy that his enemy is dead.

Outcome of the Emotions from Mind:

Crying is an indication of Sadness where the outcome of the emotion is tears in the eyes.

This means emotions arise from the mind will be expressed in the body.

  • When we are Happy, we Jump.
  • When we are Angry, we shout.

So, if mind is responsible for Emotion, why does Heart come into picture?

Consider a scenario, its raining heavily outside and your partner is waiting for you near railway station

Now what does your heart say?

Even if it rains, I don’t care and all I wanted is to meet my partner and hence I would follow my heart!!

The Above Scenario is a Decision making process such as Mind needs to take action based on a condition

IF it had not been rained, I would have gone to meet my partner and now that I don’t even have an umbrella.

IF it rains, my partner asked me to stay, ELSE I could have gone.

There are two or more actions from the Mind and its a human tendency to view that one of the action comes from the heart.

Relation between Mind and Heart:

WHEN the rich person turns that side, let me snatch his purse.

The Thief is now thrown into an situation where his Mind is tensed and his heart beats faster and the Mind turns to be alert and active.

Now the Mind might take a decision, “Don’t take risk” which is viewed by the thief that the heart says,”Don’t take risk”

The Simple relationship between Mind and Heart is that,” Nerves connected to the Heart regulate the Speed of the Heart” just like the nerves that connect each and every part of the body(Connection between Mind and Body is through Nerves).

Relation between Love and Heart:

In Case of Love such as Lust, attraction or attachment, the mind causes the nerves to activate the glands and hormones(testosterone or estrogen, Adrenaline,Dopamine) are secreted in the blood and its the heart which pumps this blood all over the body and its the human tendency to believe that Heart is choosing a partner.

Its the Mind which goes out of control and claims that the Heart is in Love.

If we can control the Mind, the Heart will do its duty properly.

So How to control the Mind?

Coffee lover thinks that, “Drinking too much coffee is not good for health” and he plans to avoid drinking coffee.

Suppose, he comes across the aroma of coffee, he will never drink coffee if he asks his mind to not drink coffee.

The more clearer the mind, the more its easy to control!!

Does Soul Exist

You may arrive at this Question, ” Does Soul Exist?”  if you are thinking about the below topics:

1. Life After Death

2. Do Ghost really exists

3.If soul exists where does it exist in the body

4.Soul does not exist but just wanna check what others feel

5.Our Body functions as Heart beats. So, what does Soul do if it exists?

6.what is Life? Is Soul the one that gives Life to Body or is it DNA?

7. Any other Question related to Life may have induced a thought on soul.

So, Does Soul Exist?

I don’t know the real answer.

Hence, what I am presenting below is what I have read, heard added to  my creativity to arrive at a logical theory.

Body and the Soul:

The main work of the reproductive system(Women) is preparation of the Body(mere Body).

Note: The Body is made up of cells(including Brain Cells) which is made up of DNA(The role of DNA is Protein Synthesis).

The Soul is believed to enter the Body (some say 40 days) after conception(fertilization of Sperm and Ovum).

The Sperm contains(23 chromosomes); Ovum(23 Chromosomes) fuses to 46 Chromosome – Cell. This Cell multiplies and develops into a Body. The Nutrition for the cell is multiply is provided by mother(through what she eats).

New Question!!!!!

If Soul enters the body after 40 days of conception, does Bacteria(Single Cell) have soul?

Bacteria is single cell living organism and the single cell contains DNA. Hence does Bacteria have soul?

A single cell has a boundary to it and it is material or it has a physical dimension.

Bacteria cannot have a soul should be the statement.

In Other words, “Soul is connected to a level of consciousness that is beyond the physical realm”.

Now, Bacteria has DNA(LIFE) but it does not have the consciousness(too low)

Vegetarian Vs Non-Vegetarian:

The concept of vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian is not related with Life. [Read above DNA denoted as Physical Life]

Even Plants have LIFE is what Non-Vegetarian Claim.

Yes,Plants have LIFE but their consciousness is low(too low)

Egg has been added to Vegetarian since its consciousness is too low.

Similarly,Fish is said to have low consciousness.

Consider a Chicken, it has a high consciousness and it would suffer.

Hence, killing it is considered as a sin(since it has the soul) and it can add to your Karma.

Vegetarians avoid killing to add Good Karma to their souls.

Hence, Soul is something related with consciousness.

So, Where does the Soul reside in the body if it can enter a body?

You are not your Mind or the Body is the Statement to be considered.

Consider a Dummy Wire and a Wire with Electricity. The Electricity can be referred to the Soul.

Consider a Dummy Human and the Soul comes into being, he becomes Human Being(Being to be related to the word Conscious).

Hence, Human being contain a Vital Energy which can be referred to as Soul.

third eye

THIRD_EYE

If the Body can open the Third Eye(through Yoga), You can have a new clarity of vision of Life which is beyond normal perception of the normal eyes.

The Third Eye is to raise your perception from the physical dimension to a higher possibility.

Location of the Third Eye:

There are 7 Chakras in the body and the Third eye is location at the Sixth Chakra.

It is said that through Yoga, you can increase your Energy Levels from the lower Chakra (first Chakra) to higher Chakras.

Once the Third Eye is opened, the Soul gets the chance to enter the highest-Seventh Chakra(enlightenment-meaning freedom from suffering, desire and ignorance) which is the motto of the soul.

What happens to Soul After Death of the Body?

  • In case of death(permanent termination of the biological functions of the body.) the soul leaves the body from the Forehead(through Third Eye location). Its heard that an Experiment has been conducted in a hospital with a patient who is about to die and who was kept in a glass room to research Soul. During the time of death, there was a slight crack in the glass exactly at the top of forehead.
  •  The Soul which left the body would try to reenter the body and would try to enter any other body since it has not achieved the highest level and it needs a body to attain enlightenment.
  • There is no Heaven or Hell. The Soul which have failed to achieve enlightenment is made to remain in Earth seeking other bodies and material world continues to suffer. Hence, Earth is considered as Hell. On the Other Hand, the Soul which have achieved enlightenment is considered to be in Heaven.
  • If a person commits sin(Killing, Hurting other souls) then the soul collects Bad Karma and continues it for generations and its energy levels go down and thus making the soul difficult to attain higher energy levels in chakra.
  • The Soul which left the body due to sudden accident or in case of abnormal death, the soul would wander around the area where the body died and would try to enter any other body since the wish was not fulfilled to attain enlightenment.

So, Can a Soul Target a Person or a Body?

  •  There are certain behavior in people where this soul is believed to have entered and people call itGhost or Ghost have attacked the person(entered the body). However, persons who had mental disturbance (e.g.: towards the death of a neighbor) are prone to be disturbed(by mind) and try to create sympathy through mental acts and deeds.

Hence, a Soul cannot target a person.

Soul should be referred to as Energy(Vital Energy for Body)

Consider any machine, it works only when an Energy is supplied (Heat, Electricity etc).

Energy can neighter be created nor be destroyed – Science

I am the Beginning and I am the End – “A Statement which refers God”

It means there would be an Physical End to the Universe. The Universe  expands as there is Energy.

Even though Body has Energy, it cannot be experienced through sense organs(Sense organs can experience only Physical Things).

Chakras and Energies:

chakra_system

CHAKRA- ENERGY

Energy can neighter be created nor be destroyed - Science

CHAKRAS

The Seven Chakras corresponds to Different Energy levels. The Energy from the Sixth Chakra is referred to as Over soul Level.

Desires scatter the Energy levels in the body and there is an aimlessness in the mind and body to go behind something. The Unfulfilled Desires come as Dreams during sleep denotes the scattered Energy. When people die they say, “Let the Soul rest in peace” means that the Energy which got scattered may rest in peace denotes a human tendency to say that unfulfilled desires to fade away.

Relationship between soul and God:

Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, It just transforms from one form to another.

Hence, Energy should be termed as God and  Energy should be termed as soul.

Energy does Exist!!!

Tense becomes Tension

Why Tense becomes Tension?

What we have which is common for anybody?

Time – 24 Hours a Day. However, we have differentiated Time as Past,Present and Future. We call it as

Past Tense

Present Tense

Future Tense

Now, Consider a Child is born.

The Child lives the present. The Child doesnt know about the past or dont worry about the Future. The Survival of the baby is taken care by the parents.

The Child slowly understands mother,father,relations and others. As the baby grows these nearby such as family becomes its past.

It enters a new world- School. This is the Time it starts to worry about Future.

All Children cry to go to School. The Mother cautions the child saying, “If You do not eat the food, teacher is coming to beat you.”

In the evening, the child is asked to prepare for the Next Day(Future) by giving tasks such as Home work or to study for the test.

A scenerio:

A child asks for a chocolate, the (past) parents tell the child that,”Only if you get First Rank(Future) I will buy and give you”

We worry about the Future!

We feel sad for the Past!

We never live the Present!

Now read the First Line for this Post!

Why is Life

Some of the Questions in Life

How to go to New-york
How to become a doctor
How to become rich
How to choose a profession
How to change a career

The answer to the Question- How to go to New-york

We can go by Flight, Train, Ship, Road. Also, there are different classes of ticket,different time travel and many other factors which we need to research to find out the best or optimum way to go.

Is it really possible for anyone to know all the details clearly such as what is the ticket rate for Airlines-A and how much time and in what path it would travel and also to know what is the ticket rate for Class-B in train and how much time and in what path it would travel.

A great research is being carried out to find out all the factors and a Tour is planned such as type of travel and ticket class is planned,Food and Accommodation are planned and at last the tour would be canceled.

This has happened to me many times. Some of my friends would call me for a tour. They make all the plans and at last the tour would be canceled.

The reason being, it is not the How that really matters. Life is all about Why!

For Instance, I wanted to travel to Thanjore which was in TamilNadu. I would not really care about How. I would care about why.

I was really interested to visit the Thanjore Big Temple which was built by the King Raja Raja Cholan. It was exciting me and in whatever means I would travel, I would be happy.

The Word  “Why” gives clarity in thought.

Now, let me change all the Questions

Why to go to New-york
Why to become a doctor
Why to become rich
Why to choose a profession
Why to change a career

The word Why is internal and can give more clarity. The more clear and confident we are, Life would blossom!

How to Live Longer

There is a relation between Breathe and Longivity.

For Example:

Dog breathe 72 Times per minute – Can Live 12 Years

Horse breathe 30 Times per minute – Can Live 25 to 30 Years

Elephant breathe 14-18 Times per minute – Can Live 100 Years

If Man breathe 13-15 Times per minute – Can Live 160 Years

 

Our Body is just like a machine. It needs to perform at a steady phase and hence it can live longer period.
