~ Studyroom ~

Back on wheels and here we proceed......

The vehicle( body and mind), need not visit the service centre only for repairs or damage caused by accidents. It can be, rather ideally it should be sent for regular service check up so that all the parts are serviced well to enable smooth functioning and also to avoid breakdowns because of service failure. The mechanic might discover some faulty parts and put them back in place. Just like how, eventhough hospitals are primarily meant for treating sickness, yet the wise go for a health checkup even when everything is well. Many discover the hidden germs that could have manifested as the most dangerous disease. Early detection, permanent cure! So lets do it once in a while for a healthy living.
May be i wished to extend the same practise for the mind too. So decided to stop the vehicle for a while with no purpose. That is, when all is well, go for the checkup too. But here, you are the doc and the patient too. Generally the mind is used to certain patterns and gets caught in concepts too. Thats why when such pattern gets changed for whatever reasons, it can go totally off balance. Now, here, its a wonderful opportunity to watch the mind which can get used to blogging and all its interactions(love, concern, appreciations, rejections etc) when withdrawn not by external force or has no access to it, but simply by a voluntary instruction. How much it can still remain in the present, ie. without blogging too and what actually happens in that zone. It can also help us to identify any hidden germs, if any --like i noticed, while visiting other sites, the tendency to go for a comment. Then since it was happening in awareness, initially, the thought doesnot manifest into action. later, in yet another site, such a thought itself doesnot manifest. Its not something wrong to blog or to comment, but just made use of it to study the nuances of the mind. Also, just how good it feels to stop and breathe the fresh air, so is it with those moments. Not just with one's mind alone, but when announced, it helps to understand the projection aspect of the mind by relating to the comments too. We learn from ourselves and others too, just that we should be open and willing to learn. Indicators are only to guide us, not to deter us from this journey to nowhere.
Make the best use of the mind when all is well, dont let it become a beast when nothing is well.
The mind to be at its best or to become a beast lies in the hands of the one who deals with it. Mastering the mind, with varied ups and downs is the way....

Indicators are what I am always searching for. This time I want to stay on my true journey in life. I have been distracted in the past but I guess that is a lesson that needed learning so I can continue on.

I see you as a golden ball of light.

Blessings!!! JJ

Once you have those affirmations deep within you, you will identify the indicators. Yes, any detour is also a part of the journey only JJ!
