With everything going on in today’s society, our minds are so full, so chaotic that we can’t focus on the most important part of our lives: self! We forget that the mind is meant to be a servant but we allow it to run our lives. Are you stuck in ‘a head trip’? Or are you allowing your mind to keep you busy so that you don’t have to connect to the inner self: the one who runs from pain and grief and the truth?
Osho suggests sitting in a silent room with a voice recorder or piece of paper. For a pre-determined amount of time 20-30 minutes, talk or write anything and everything that passes through your mind. Are you surprised by what comes out?
When we live in the chaos of our minds, we cannot attain spiritual perception. We cannot attain peace, happiness, or enjoy the beauty around us. We cannot be grateful for everything we have.
What can you do today to realize and quiet your mind?
