Be wise enough not to believe your mind. The mind left to its own, is crazy; like a child who is looking for Mamma’s comfort and cannot find it. The mind looks on the outside for comfort, for contentment and of course, it is always disappointed and heartbroken in a crazed way.
This little, stubborn child, your mind, will keep jumping back and forth, from topic to unrelated topic, obsessing over chapters and episodes of your life, all out of sequence; all the while, this mind remains thirsty for centeredness and contentment.
Your mind will perceive something and transform itself into whatever it is perceiving! You can watch a James Bond movie as movie-watcher but low and behold, after a few moments, your mind transforms itself into the mind of a British spy.
What is equally true is that your mind cannot distinguish between imagined reality and reality of the NOW. Whatever scenario or thought comes rushing in through the floodgates of your mind, will be accepted as reality–regardless of the Truth that may be staring you in the eyes.
Don’t think of your thoughts as so interesting; they are just noise driving you away from making contact with life in the moment. Life exists only in the NOW and for as long as you are swept away by your own thoughts, you will never embrace God in the NOW.
Watch your mind like a Great Witness, tell yourself, I don’t believe and won’t follow this beehive of a mind–I will watch it instead. Interesting to know that when your mind knows that you are “minding it”, the mind will instantly become docile and quiet. All you need to become a Sage is to have the intention of minding your mind. Don’t force quietude, let your mind rant and blabber, yet know deep inside that you are the Mind of God–The Great Witness and nothing less.
Because your mind transforms itself into whatever you allow inside, you can turn your fortune around by purposely thinking and visualizing the best. Continue doing this, and soon enough, your mind will believe that you deserve and have the best of life. Then your actions and life-results will fall in line accordingly and soon enough, you really will have the best that life has to offer.
