Human mind…..most controversial topic to talk about! I am trying to touch base with few simple examples seen in our day-to-day life which shows how weak the human mind can be!
My master beautifully explained me the nature of Human Mind. He mentioned me that both water and mind have similar qualities. They both have the tendency to flow downwards towards the gravity.
The entire world has witnessed numerous inventions which has made life super easy. Right from the invention of a telephone to … you name it. Every individual has reacted separately to these inventions. Many are unable to accommodate these innovations gracefully in day-to-day life. There are several psychological aspects which influence i.e low self-esteem, loneliness and lack of friends. However, pointing out those which are now a worrisome issue.
- The rise of technology increased obesity among children. More time was spent in the couch playing games rather being on the play ground. Junk food too is responsible. Directly or indirectly parenting never improvised.
- Cell-phones/music players and ear-plugs have seen increase in accidents leading to death of the individual. Individuals are so involved in hearing or talking on the gadget that it leads to unforeseen accidents. Specially while driving or crossing the roads/rail-tracks to name a few. Rules were broken due to weakness of human mind.
- The number of accidents and deaths due to the new craze ‘Selfi‘ is on rise. The APA made this classification during its annual board of directors meeting in Chicago. The disorder is called Selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.
These are just a very few reminders at an individual level. ‘Taken for granted’ attitude is very lethal. I would term it as slow poison. You would never realize until its too late.
Every individual needs to remember and aggressively work upon his own MIND. If the mind is trained to relax every day, then the thoughts can be changed or rather reprogrammed! Practice Presence.
Human mind is unpredictable after all nothing is permanent – Anand Koti
We constantly have to spend time to train and control the mind. You can read our blog on how to train and control the mind at the link above. ∧
We all have numerous reasons to justify the action taken. There is something called self-realization and/or self-awareness, which gives the individual a reason to think and justify his actions. Human Mind can be a friend and at the same time an enemy. Think hard.
