The secret is not to free your mind from distraction but to free your self of your mind.
Counter intuitive it may sound,it is true.Enlightenment or meditation (early stage on enlightenment) does the same to your mind. It shuts your ever speaking (inner voice) monkey brain and gets your mind much needed rest.
- You want to get rid of the nagging thoughts of your (ex)lover.
- Your future worries
- Your next job profile
- Your new car’s EMI
Or whateveryou noticed that even if you get rid of one thought from your mind,next one replaces it!
Mind is never silent,never calm,it is programmed to think by modern society.Our basic nature is not to think ‘but not to think’. Our basic nature is to think purposely and then stop when we don’t want.But this rarely happens.We go on thinking aimlessly and mindlessly.
Can you control you thoughts and mind? No.
You are slave of your mind. It thinks on its own, with out your consent and with out taking any break. In your sleep.your mind dreams!
The act of deprogram this harmful way your mind behaves is meditation and enlightenment.
No mind is best mind.
