If it is true that every thought sets the fulfillment of its desire in motion, and I believe it is, then it behooves us to make sure our thoughts are setting good motions in place. Ernest Holmes tells us that “trained thought is far more powerful than untrained....”
This means we must take steps to train our mind. Those steps are the spiritual practices of self inquiry and meditation. Done together regularly, consistently and persistently, these two practices allow for a trained mind that is supportive and friendly.
I am fond of saying that my mind is not the boss of me, but that doesn’t just happen automatically. I had to do some work to establish a positive relationship between me and my mind. You may be familiar with the saying that the mind is a dangerous neighborhood, we should not go there alone. When I first began the spiritual practices of self inquiry and meditation, it was very scary and uncomfortable. But I was told that my life would get better if I did these practices. I did, and it did.
Today, I not only DO these practices daily, but they are a lifestyle for me. It hasn’t always been like this, but I can assure you that if you make a beginning you will eventually end up with a trained mind that is a friend, not a foe.
If you have an untrained mind that seems to be against you, I can help. Contact me for more information.
