Taming Mind

Taming Mind is an art. Dictating your own mind could be one of the toughest task in universe. Most of human beings never even realize that mind is constantly generating thoughts every micro second. Most of the times, in a thought process, first thought is generated out of our experience from particular event which we get via ears and eyes. After first thought is generated, mind starts manipulating series of thoughts on its own. The series of thoughts generated by mind in turn produce certain types of feelings like anger, fear, frustration or happiness. Mind has strong capabilities to exaggerate a particular event with thoughts. It is very easy for Mind to make us victim of anger, fear and frustration.

Most of the time, we keep on trying to control anger, fear or frustration. In doing so we always turn out to be loser. We keep on trying to control these feelings without even accepting those thoughts which generate those feelings. We can’t tame mind forcefully. We simply can’t control mind until we develop a friendly relationship with it. We must learn an art to break chain of thoughts generated by mind in thought process. The moment we accept thought and become aware of it, the thought automatically vanishes. So instead of trying to control feelings like anger, fear, frustration forcefully we must develop habit to accept and be aware of these feelings in order to get rid of them.

Today’s human is  purely a result of mechanical routine. The way technology is growing so rapidly, I wonder what is the future of homosapiens?. Humans can’t sit idle for a second also in today’s professional and corporate society. I often wonder if I am sitting with mechanical beings instead of human beings when I go to office on metro. Everybody is always busy reading book or doing office work. I wonder when humans give time to themselves or they just completely forget about themselves. This mechanical life has taken humans far away from their own life. Every day we are in race of survival. I wonder what went wrong with human beings when all other living creatures are surviving so smoothly. Is it that human’s own developed concept of civilization is going to be reason of human destruction one day.

Today’s human is not only mechanical in routine professional work but in all the aspects of life. I would say any type of existing belief system is just a product of mechanical life style. We are slowly forgetting questioning things. Nobody is questioning religion, marriage and war. This mechanical routine has conditioned human mind so badly that I doubt that if this race could even survive without work and routine. Their mind is so much indulged into a particular routine that humans are forgetting to enjoy things whole heartedly. Every natural phenomena is becoming  mechanical.
