Awakening to Fire

Day 73: The fear and the trap of the mind

Motto: “Do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” (The Buddha)

‘I have got to the conclusion that there is a direct connection between the mind and our greatest fears. The mind is the bleak house of all fears, of all traumas. The mind is like a camera that films a scene and then recreates it over and over again, and garners its essence in different scenarios. If you do not master your mind, it will ruin your life, because it will teach you all lies. It will tell you that you are not sufficient; that you are ugly; that nobody can love you; that you are unworthy; that you cannot change! It will say every possible untruth, because it is a mirror that reflects your traumas! The mind has to be trained to mirror something else. You have to break through the veil of the apparent mind, and to get to a place of peace and love that is unshakable! There, you will find your true identity, your true self, which is not a “self”, but pure-consciousness. Then, you can heal yourself, and after healing, you will be able to live your life the way you want, in a powerful and meaningful way! Nobody can set you free, only you can. They are all guides; they are all doctors of the soul, in the sense that they will try to bind your wounds and make your path much easier, but the truth is that only you can heal yourself, both consciously and unconsciously!’
