Many individuals, if not most of us, consider that one’s being is the sum whole of 1’s physique and thoughts. Main on from a poem I wrote entitled ‘Who am I and Who’re You?’ I’ve thought at size in regards to the id disaster that most individuals grapple with. This goes with out mentioning the id crises expertise by most younger individuals right this moment.
All of us are conscious of the hyperlink, or a imprecise attachment between one’s [Spirit and/or Soul] being considerably linked to 1’s thoughts/mind/physique. Or maybe the thoughts is the soul, or a soul’s hyperlink to the mind? Unusual ideas might spring to thoughts as one shuffles these objects round in a single’s thoughts mindfulness workshops.
Many philosophers and Jap masterminds have made spectacular statements on this matter, and I certainly have been conscious of them. Nevertheless, solely since I wrote the e book ONE Life-Love-Vitality and have become a Reiki practitioner have I totally realized how incorrect most of us have been; apart from the Jap peoples.
Alarmingly, the Japanese, the Tibetan Monks, Chinese language, Indian and different Jap cultures’ peoples have identified for 1000’s of years, from custom and legend acknowledged in historical paperwork, about what Western Scientists and quantum physicists solely in recent times have found about vitality, atoms, matter, and plenty of different vitally essential issues pertaining to creation, God, mankind, the Earth and the Universe. All their spiritual, meditative and ritualistic practices are based mostly on these historical rules. In reality their total existence is predicated there-on.
Not too long ago I used to be approached by a good friend who requested me to listen to her private issues and to council her. She had been terribly handled by her most up-to-date employer, who fired her for one thing she had not carried out. She was experiencing feelings like hatred, resentment, and harbored a robust feeling of revenge towards the employer. She had till just lately labored at a privately owned orphanage for 2 years, caring for the house and particularly for the kids; with whom she had developed a robust bond of motherly love.
My good friend had been experiencing sleepless nights, with reminiscences and previous occasions replaying themselves constantly in her thoughts while attempting to go to sleep. She was deeply distraught with grief and she or he did not know the way to deal with all of the emotion. I requested her whether or not she believed that she might management her thoughts, and whether or not she was conscious that she was permitting these disturbing ideas and footage to enter her thoughts. She stated, “No, it simply occurs, they flood into my thoughts, it doesn’t matter what I believe or do; I am unable to assist it and I really feel completely helpless.”
I advised her of my perception that it doesn’t matter what occurs in a single’s life, one has to first suppose one thing earlier than one can / or will carry out it or communicate it out. Due to this fact, every thing takes thought. Thought precedes all motion and speech. Now, based mostly on this assertion, the query arises as to “who” is doing the pondering; the mind alone or the feelings which immediate the mind? Or is it the being to whom the mind and thoughts and physique belong? Sure, the latter is the reality in personification. You and I are impartial and distinctive spirits, pure beings made up solely of vitality, arising from the Universe (heaven if you want).
On the earth of right this moment the thoughts and physique dominate the spirit to such an extent that we free our non secular id utterly – till we die, in fact.
