The Invasion Of Our Minds
This is the reason why we meditate
Meditation is merely letting the mind settle down:
First, watch the breath.
Experience the awareness of watching the breath.
Rest in that awareness.
Realise the spaciousness and clarity of that awareness.
Acknowledge that this awareness is none other than consciousness itself.
Realising that there is, in truth, nothing other than consciousness, we arrive at pure consciousness. And that is what we are – pure clarity!
Now, we can be aware of the invasion of the mind snatchers! If humanity could look at its inner reality of pure clarity, it would realise that it was free. Free to enjoy a simple life, a fulfilling life and a life filled with love for everything and everyone whom we encounter.
But we still have to be aware that much about the modern lifestyle has become detrimental to our mental and physical health.
When the modern world fills our minds with trivia and our bodies with food of little value, then we cannot think clearly. We worry and stress, and our immune system runs down, making us vulnerable to attack.
Without a clear mind, we cannot acknowledge consciousness, let alone pure consciousness.
Our bodies and minds are too busy trying to cope with the junk and drivel poured into us. Modern life has accelerated this drivel to an alarming degree. People are plugged into music, I-phones, the internet, sports, social media, games, ‘news’ … all of which we fixate upon, and which de-sensitises us to our natural, pure reality. The media spews out drivel every day, constantly turning our attention to this and that, rather than whatever is truly going on. Demonic activity is at work 24 hours a day, lowering both our IQ and EQ (EQ = emotional intelligence = our ability to empathise).
Personally, I think religion is just as culpable in that it exaggerates the formof spirituality, which can misdirect us from our true essence of pure consciousness.
The greatest problem is that we are not aware that we are suffering, because we are kept so busy, captivated by the next piece of trivia.Hey! It’s a jungle out there! So quieten the mind and take back control.
When we recognise that someone else recognises, isn’t it a wonderful relief! 🙂
It’s a jungle out there
Disorder and confusion everywhere
No one seems to care
Well I do
Hey, who’s in charge here?
It’s a jungle out there
Poison in the very air we breathe
Do you know what’s in the water that you drink?
Well I do, and it’s amazing
People think I’m crazy, ’cause I worry all the time
If you paid attention, you’d be worried too
You better pay attention
Or this world we love so much might just kill you
I could be wrong now, but I don’t think so!
‘Cause there’s a jungle out there.
It’s a jungle out there.
