Freedom From The Conceptual Mind
…the programming with which we identify
Because of our early environment, we acquire a type of self-image which affects the choices we make in life. Unless we make an effort to change, we become bound by nurture.
However, when we are born, it is clear that we have individual predispositions.
This is because of actions in previous lives – we brought the programme with us!
Predisposition: a liability or tendency to suffer from a particular condition, hold a particular attitude, or act in a particular way.
The Tibetan Book of the Dead gives us some insight into our own psychology that leads to freedom from the conceptual mind that controls us.
