Mind Illusions

Mind Illusions or Reality or Both?

We are an accumulation of all our thoughts and input from others growing up, like parents, teachers, our peers. Some of it we let go because we did not believe it, but most of the input we received we held onto believing it was true. What goes on in our minds seems so real and for the moment you are living it, it is real. Whether you are bipolar, angry, depressed, an alcoholic, what goes on in or minds seems so real. We are what we believe that we are.

Ernest Holmes the founder of Science of Mind says this: "There is no such thing as your mind, my mind, his mind, her mind and God's Mind; there is just Mind in which we all live, move and have our being. There is Mind and nothing but Mind. We think of Conscious Mind and Spirit as One and the Same.

Things are ideas. What else could they be? There is nothing out of which to make things, except ideas. In the beginning we behold nothing visible; there is only an infinite possibility, a Limitless Imagination, a Consciousness; the only action of this Consciousness being idea.

That which we call our subjective mind is, in reality, our identity in Infinite Mind; in other words, it is the result of our mental attitudes. It is our mental atmosphere or center in universal Subjective Mind, in which are retained all the images, impressions, inherited tendencies and race suggestions as far as we accept them."


Mind Illusions or Reality

All spiritual teachings know that there are always conflicting thoughts going on inside our minds. It is like we are always fighting with ourselves. We should never stop learning about ourselves. Never stop growing spiritually. Our spirituality, our mental well being, our lives and how happy we are depend on it.  Mind Illusions are real and we can control our thoughts and how we react to them. Everyone has heard of cause and effect, but have you really thought about it. Take the time to just sit and go over your life and the circumstances that made you who you are and focus on what you thought or did before a certain situation. I can see that my thinking directly impacted my life. I can see situations so clearly that I know that the outcomes would have been different today.

That is why we can not change the past. It has already happened and we now live with the effects. Now what we can do is learn from the past so that what we do and say today will give us a better tomorrow.

There is a old Cherokee proverb that says it best.
It is called
Two Wolves or Grandfather Tells.

An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, "Let me tell you a story

I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do.

But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy.

It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die.

I have struggled with these feelings many times." He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me.

One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended.

He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.

But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason.

He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing.

Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"

The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, "The one I feed."

This next book was a good read for me, in the beginning of my journey. Without some of these tools, I am not sure my outcome would have been the same.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull 

Written By Richard Bach

The book tells the story of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a seagull who is bored with the daily squabbles over food. Seized by a passion for flight, he pushes himself, learning everything he can about flying, until finally his unwillingness to conform results in his expulsion from his flock. An outcast, he continues to learn, becoming increasingly pleased with his abilities as he leads a peaceful and happy life.

One day, Jonathan is met by two gulls who take him to a "higher plane of existence" in that there is no heaven but a better world found through perfection of knowledge, where he meets other gulls who love to fly. He discovers that his sheer tenacity and desire to learn make him "pretty well a one-in-a-million bird." In this new place, Jonathan befriends the wisest gull, Chiang, who takes him beyond his previous learning, teaching him how to move instantaneously to anywhere else in the Universe. The secret, Chiang says, is to "begin by knowing that you have already arrived." Not satisfied with his new life, Jonathan returns to Earth to find others like him, to bring them his learning and to spread his love for flight. His mission is successful, gathering around him others who have been outlawed for not conforming. Ultimately, the very first of his students, Fletcher Lynd Seagull, becomes a teacher in his own right and Jonathan leaves to teach other flocks.
