Clear Your Mind
We tend to rely on our minds to interpret our experience of the world. Yet our thinking mind interprets the world through cultural constructs that are separate from our true, direct, spontaneous experience of life. We hold thought with great value and yet they are simply interpretations of a collection of cultural conditions that we carry around in our brain.
Thinking is separate from our lived experience. Thinking is based on manufactured ideas about the world around us. Our thinking may or may not have anything to do with our actual real, present moment experience of the world.
We tend to believe our thinking is the truth. In reality our thinking is judgments of what is right or wrong, predigested, interpretations based on past experiences, preconceptions and interpretations.
Thinking keeps us from connecting with our life giving energy. When we clear our mind from value statements, judgment, artificial meanings, interpretations and formulas we are able to have a direct experience of our reality.
Our judgments overwhelm and separate us from our life energy. Cultural conditioning can start to dominate the content of our energy until we no longer feel the balancing, restorative quality of our original life force energy.
Meditation and meditative practices like yoga will allow us to reprogram our life energy to a pure signal that will allow us to nourish our energy and the energy of all the cells of our body and mind.
