mind is a property or aspect of our consciousness. The
experiences of the awareness of consciousness is what gives rise to
mind. Mind is only a collection of the past and is the past.
Conscious awareness is the experience of the now. It is to be in the
moment without past and with no anticipation of the future. It is to
just be with the experience as it is fully savoring the experience.
What we feel in our heart is the source of our
creative power. What we perceive in
mind is the source of our
creative ability. Mind is what ultimately allows us to become
the creator of our experiences. Without mind, we can only respond
and flow with what is. No matter how much we feel, we will only
response without the presence of mind. Mind gives us the ability to
be aware and choose. It allows us to be come the cause of the
experiences we have.
mind also becomes attached. There are things that it likes and
things that it dislikes. In general, mind wants and seeks what it
has found pleasurable, pleasant and enjoyable in the past. It think
it knows what will give it a pleasant experience in the future but
it has no awareness the environment has change. The flows of energy
are not what they were. We only feel pleasure and mind must
surrender to what we feel if it is going to create what it desires.
In addition to seeking that which is pleasurable,
mind also fears. Mind can become quite dramatic and defensive as
it fights to protect and defend what it thinks will allow it to feel
safe or unsafe and to keep it from being injured or harmed.
Here in lies and struggle and a dance.
Mind want to feel pleasure and enjoy and thinks it knows how to
get it but it doesn’t. What we feel will lead us to what is
pleasurable and enjoyable. But for our feelings to lead, mind must
surrender. The never ending struggle is between who will lead us in
life, mind or heart. This in turn gives rise to the
dance between mind and heart.
Now what is important to note here is we have two
minds and they give rise to the
subconscious and unconscious aspects of our being. One is the
transcendental mind which gives rise to the
intention for our life and transcends our current life. There is
something it desires us to do based on its past. The desires and
wants from the past that lie in the transcendent mind give rise to
our unconscious desires and wants. Then there is the
The enculturated mind arises from the experiences of this life and
gives rise to our desires based on the experiences we have had in
this life. Many of the desires and wants of the enculturated mind
lie in our subconscious and often reflect our encultuation and the
programming we received in this life as much if not more that the
experiences we have had. The experiences of the enculturated mind
are chiefly what characterizes what we experience unless we become
open to our transcendental mind. So, in addition to the dance
between mind and what we feel, we also have a dance between our
transcendental mind and our enculturated mind. Sometimes they agree
but often they do not.
It needs to be realized that our
creative power in accessed in the ability of our
mind to choose. In any one moment, there are five primary
flows of energy to which we can surrender that are influencing our
lifethat give an
overall composite. They are (1) the
intention for our life, (2) the
flow of Creation, (3) the
flow of society, (4) the flow the intention of our
(5) the composite or resultant flow of the
nonconscious and conscious
desires of our
mind. Of course there are other flows of energy that are
variations of these five or a subpart. From a feeling perspective,
the choice is easy. We choose that which
serves us and allows for a feeling of
expansion into the infinity of our own being..
From the perspective of
mind, it becomes confusing. Here we need to have a
clarity of intent for what we desire to create and then learn to
become very discerning to discern the
flow of energy which arises from that intention from all the
other flows of energy we can perceive. This is why learning to be
open to feeling to discern what we feel and hold a
single point focus become so important in our creative
To align with the flow of our the
desire of our
mind, we simply needs to focus our attention and awareness on
what “I” wants. We then look to see what feeling it causes to arise
within our being and use that as our compass point. Additionally we
can ask our mind, “What do I need to do to align with the flow for
what I want?” Then follow the
intuitive guidance we get.
Similarly, for each of the other flows of energy, we simply need to
focus our attention and awareness on that particular aspect ask our
intuitive guidance what we need to do to discern and feel this
particular flow of energy and look to see what arises. Then, of
honor the intuitive guidance we get.
