Lately, I have been in a steady continuum of thoughts. Which is fine, I guess. However, I feel there is a lack of discipline with my relationship with my mind. When I am in engagement with other people, I am at my best of surrendering to the present moment. The challenge becomes, when in the quiet moments I retreat to my thoughts, which for me is a great place to be – however, I have to be mindful my mind is hungry for more stimulus, more food for thought, and because of that I am in constant thought. I know what I have to do (it’s just the discipline of doing it), I have to surrender my thoughts to the universe and be fully conscious of the present moment when I am “All by Myself“.
The mind is the aspect of intellect and consciousness experienced as combinations of thought, perception, memory, emotion, will and imagination, including all unconscious cognitive processes. The term is often used to refer, by implication, to the thought processes of reason. The Mind manifests itself subjectively as a stream of consciousness.
The mind is frequently synonymous with thought: the private conversation with ourselves that we carry on “inside our heads.” Thus we “make up our minds,” “change our minds” or are “of two minds” about something. One of the key attributes of the mind in this sense is that it is a private sphere to which no one but the owner has access. No one else can “know our mind.” They can only interpret what we consciously or unconsciously communicate.
Until the next time – I adore you for reading my blog,
