FORMATION OF MIND
Our mind stays very close to us (soul) and its loyal servant to us (soul). The mind is made up of pious/impious property of abstract cosmic ego. So it seems to be like an ego. It has good as well as bad properties. Good properties like truthfulness, peacefulness, honesty, modesty etc. and bad as greed, pride, selfishness, cruelty, anger etc. These are naturally inbuilt in our mind.
Now as mind stays very close to the soul, so mind has some devotional qualities as well. But these qualities come openly in a pure mind and not in an impure one, as devotional qualities needs the platform of selfless love and surrender to God, for its consistence stay.
Thus we can categorize qualities of mind into four quarters:
a) Pious (sattvic): This is favorable to devotional qualities and makes a person generous, kind, forgiving, and truthful etc.
b) Selfish (rajasi): This is contrary to devotional qualities and makes a person proud, selfish, and lustful etc.
c) Impious (tamasi): This is totally opposite to good qualities and makes a person cruel and entirely selfish.
d) Devotional (upasana): Devotion towards God makes a person, humble, loyal, service oriented, and faithful, selfless lover, surrendered to God etc.
PURITY OF MIND
Our sensual subjects serve our senses, senses serves our mind and mind along with all senses and body serves to soul. Soul is divine and gets energy from supreme divine (God). So Soul serves God or we can say soul serves pure form of love. And thus soul is always searching the pure love for getting real happiness.
Being material and servant of soul, mind cab only offer material pleasure to soul, to please it. And so soul is never satisfied, by these material pleasures being divine in nature.
Now how this mind can serve divinity to soul when it does not have that. Because we need real happiness and means t o get happiness is mind and 5 senses, which by default are material oriented. The answer is as mind is made up of both good and bad qualities, it will either move towards purity or impurity. If a mind is impure it will never know the demand of soul and remain fixed to achieve sensual gratification by any means right or wrong?
Pure mind goes for proper understanding of any subject and if it’s devotional, it will go deep into its elements. And understood the demand of soul. And because mind can never stop, it has to opt a path of purity or impurity any how. You might have seen how thieves do their theft. So if not directed towards purity, this mind will flow freely towards impurity.
- HAPPINESS THE ULTIMATE GOAL
All of us aim to have some achievement in this world. But we never think why different things are aimed when we all need only happiness
- SCIENCE OF MEDITATION
People often are unaware of all the sciences about doing meditation. Which when done does not give desired results. This is very deeply made understood here in this article.
This mind could be perceived as a piece of glass which is partly opaque and partly transparent. Where it is pure it looks transparent and where it’s impure it looks opaque. And between the two states is the state of normality. From here it goes either way according to its attachment. As I had told you earlier, attachment is influenced by our knowledge from past experiences and parents.
Greater the transparency, greater the frequency of soul to relate to God or divinity or real love or real happiness exists.
NATURE OF MIND
The nature of mind is adoptive and affectionate, but in intellectual stage it is critical. This is a truth that when mind is emotionally attached, it subsides good and bad in it and starts loving it. But being intellectual it stands entrenched in normality or vanity, consciously or unconsciously.
