Mind and God
In controlling the mind, it is very important to know that if all thoughts from the mind have gone off or have vanished, how can the brain understand commands, or react to them? Does the brain stop? Or, will the brain wait for a long time and wake up again? If so, the real question is how will the mind wake up again?
"Samadhi" is the final stage for saints and the desire of every person who meditates. It is very difficult to reach that stage - where a person sits in a particular pose, relaxed, with the mind completely empty, without any thoughts. It is a very powerful and pleasant stage. To reach this stage, one needs to practice for several years. Humans can survive in this pose for many years.
The real question is, how can such a person wake up? When there is nothing in the mind, even when the sound of breathing is not there? Sometimes the person feels he has become a tiny one. Still, some power comes and wakes you up. Some power comes, enters your mind and issues a command to your brain and Walla, your body wakes up. How is this possible? Who wakes up your mind?
At the initial stage of meditation you repeatedly issue commands to your brain that your entire body is given to the God. You are no one, everything is done by the God. You believe Him and think all the time of Him. Sometimes you become more veggies and prefer to talk less. All these are symptoms of your getting closer to the God. Everywhere you see the God, your nature becomes very pleasant. You will always have a tiny smile on your face, and some energy is blowing inside of you. You are very happy. You practice meditation every day, remove all thoughts from you mind, just thinking of your God and getting closer to Him.
Now here is the game. What happens when you think of the God? You have reserved a small area initially in your mind. Then slowly, slowly, give all your powers, your mind, your every wish to that small area. You even give "I" which is always very strongly present in you, you give that too. Now that part of your mind has all powers for your body, brain, thoughts.
Walla | and that part of your mind becomes real controller for your body and brain. That part of your mind or power is nothing but the God in you. Who knows when to wake up you? He commands your brain to breathe, creating the power for your body system. Because of this fact, even after several years of "Samadhi", one can come back. Even if my mind is completely blank, still I can breathe or can return to the world. Your comments?
The writer suggests that the objective of meditation is to remove all thoughts from consciousness. According to him, Samadhi is reached after many years as a very powerful and pleasant stage, when all thoughts are banished. But, he wonders how the brain can ever wake up again after banishing all thoughts. He suggests a reason.
During meditation, while banishing all thoughts, you reserve a small area for God. Thinking of God is pleasant and brings a smile to your face. Then imagine that all your controls are handed over to that area. You submit even “I” to that area. So, that imagined area becomes the controller of your body and mind. That area becomes God in you. Since there is a control, which has been retained, you will be able to come back from Samadhi whenever you wish.
Samadhi is said to be a state retained for years by great sages, where they remain in motionless meditation, after banishing all thoughts. We have no idea of the state of mind of a person experiencing Samadhi. But, when the writer reserves one area in his thoughts for his God, he is consciously thinking a thought. That is not an absence of thought.
Actually the mind is a pattern recognition entity, which constantly keeps interpreting the environment. All that meditation can achieve is to banish thoughts of fear, anger, guilt, envy and jealousy triggered by the limbic system. When awful thoughts have been banished, the RB, your rational brain, still is aware of the sensations of the body as well as its own assessments. When not troubled by negative emotions, this is a joyful state. RB can always come back to conscious life.
Thanks for your response. Can you clarify the following? If sensations do exist, then they may create new thoughts in the mind. Any fear sensation will bring frightened thoughts into the mind. This will disturb the meditation and the state will not be joyful. Or do you mean to say that RB is not human and is he controlling authority for the body. If so, where is RB located? How is it connected to the human body?
Our brain contains primitive intelligences as well as RB, the prefrontal human level intelligence. It is RB, which calmly interprets the world. Fear, anger and all negative emotions are generated by primitive intelligences. Read "The Triune Brain" in my website. When negative emotions are eliminated (through Mind Control Tips), you are left with the joy of pure perception.
