The Mind – The Source of Creation

What is the mind?

The brain is made up of a number of parts, including the left and right hemisphere. But, it’s still one brain. The mind is, likewise, made up of several “parts”, the conscious and the subconscious. But, it’s still only one mind, one consciousness.

Looking at the mind from a complete perspective, it is an ethereal machine. Ethereal because the only way to prove its existence is by looking around us to see what humanity has accomplished by thought, idea and imagination (action is physical).

A mental machine with a set of rules. You have to press the right button to get it to do something. And when you press that button you will get out of it what you put in.

It’s the analogy of the planting of the seed; whatever you plant in your mind, that is what you will get in return. At the same time you have to maintain the soil in which the seed is planted so it remains fertile.

What does that mean?

It means that you may have an idea that you want to follow. You have planted that idea in your mind, that is the seed. But to get to the point you want to get, you have to maintain a mindset of success and achievement. You have to keep your mind on the positive and push away the negative, by replacing one negative idea with a positive one.

By feeding your mind with positive thoughts, such as motivational speeches on YouTube, reading books related to improving your mindset and your specialisation, you are “fertilising” your mind the right way.

When you allow negativity in, when you become judgemental and hateful towards others, talking negatively about your environment, your job, your boss, your colleagues, you are driving that negativity into your own mind. It’s the same as throwing poison on a corn field and hoping that you’ll get a good crop yield – it isn’t going to happen. All you’ll get is a dead field and you’ll have to start from the beginning.

Needless to say, if you talk, for example, about one colleague and their faults to another colleague, they will eventually realise that anything they say to you, you could say to someone else. And whatever another person tells you about another person, they could be saying the same to you.

The wise person keeps their mouth closed and ears open, speaking only when it’s necessary and with knowledge and experience to back it up.

How we should use our mind

Our mind picks up all this information and begins to form a plan of how to get us there. We use our conscious mind, together with emotion, with feeling, to implant an idea into the subconscious. This synergistic association directs the path of our life; whether we get what we truly want or a life of existence.

Every choice is a directing path that we direct our mind towards. This is why so many people never get what they ask for. They may be consciously asking for the best, but, if they were true with themselves, they don’t actually believe that they can have what they ask for. So they block it and either receive nothing or they receive what they fear.

Our mind is our own. No-one but us controls it, after a given age that is. Our younger years are influenced by our environment, including family. However, there comes a time when we do become aware and we are able to make our own choices. If we choose to.

Then again there are people who don’t know this “secret”, which is really not a secret – it’s just not known. As Earl Nightingale would say, “We become what we think about most of the time…”

To take control of our mind we must take 100% responsibility for our life. From that stand-point we begin to change our life.

The mind is complex, but, when it comes to the creation of a life of our choosing it boils down to one simple sentence:

We must take control of our mind by taking control of what we think about, consistently.

Effort is required in the achievement of anything great. You can either exist or live a life of example, a life of meaning.

A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.
Marcus Aurelius

If you think in negative terms, you will get negative results. If you think in positive terms, you will achieve positive results.

The Truth About of Motivation

There’s a fallacy behind motivation. We hear that we need to motivate ourselves to do better, to get things done. But motivation is like happiness…

    I love reading an article that can make people think. Also, thank you for allowing for me to comment!

    1. Thank you for commenting and for your lovely words.

      It’s all about thinking. We underestimate what our own thinking can lead us to. Even those “passing thoughts” that are an insight into our own beliefs about ourselves.

      Have a great week.

    Having read this I thought it was extremely informative. I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    1. Thank you.

      We learn when we read and understand. Knowledge is important as long as we also apply it.

      And it’s always worthwhile. Have a great day.
