Mind watching…

There is no possibility of remembering what has been found and understood, and later repeating it to oneself. It disappears as a dream disappears. Perhaps it is all nothing but a dream.” 
P.D. Ouspensky, A New Model of the Universe

How different does it feel to be watched?

The human body has no idea it is being watched all its life. And, what runs through this biological system, has its own way of living – whether it is seeking to know or not – it knows itself – knows who it is, and lives through the tantrums of the body, whether the body remains in good or bad health. Do we feed the mind or the body, to keep them alive, and does the mind ever face its death if not fed well?

The constant characteristic of the mind is solely, to watch all the time. What the mind watches and doesn’t – there can be no perfect analysis, we can assume. It is only the memory, which reminds us, time to time, what we have noticed, absorbed, interpreted, and the same memory helps us derive a new interpretation to the same object which was noticed millions or trillions of years back.

All of us are watched by someone or other and we cannot avoid being watched or watching. When we witness a murder or rape, we understand and undergo the trauma of the pain inflicted – and also the person suffering has received the memory of aggression from the aggressor. A slow death happens and the person enters a state of coma, unconsciousness or death.

When the mind watches somebody, this mind can be watched while watching, entering a state of decision, and decisive action. If the mind power is not extensive enough to prevent the aggressor, it means the mind hasn’t been in the precautionary mode, to fence the aggression. That is because, we believe and live in a physical world where we are forced to connect only with the body, thinking we have no way to protect ourselves mentally enough, to ward off the physical contact.

When we notice something interesting, such as – a book… there is a message of the author’s mind we try to connect with, and even though the message our minds derive through contemplation, may be partially intuitive, there are stored subconscious memories which aid us to connect with the book, to arrive at a decision – if we should go for it or not.

Is it possible avoid murder, rape, and burglary?

Firstly, we have to realize there are different kinds of thought forces active in different people’s minds and each thought force has its own magnetic force of attraction and repulsion. There is no God, who can come and intervene any atrocity, crime, poverty, or even stop a millionaire running into bankruptcy.

So, if we don’t for a while step back from what we are watching, to watch the space in between the sequential thoughts, producing different emotions, then we are not arresting judgment. And when we don’t arrest judgment, we have an action to witness, and a reaction to experience.

What we choose to get attracted to, are the objects which get drawn to us. And, we make unconscious choices, and we cannot even remember when we attracted a small blade to invite the wound on our chin while shaving. We even attract fatal accidents as much as, ward them off depending on the reflex of the moment – how quick the mind can jump out of the present senses of the environment it is engrossed in, able to find an escape route.

Finally, whether we succumb or defeat the challenging situation – the world seems to the mind, the psyche, totally real, and it is real. But the attempt – in spite of fighting for justice, revenge, starvation, poverty.. has to be only be fighting against that which disturbs us, or lures us too much… as even extreme pride, and happiness from the sensory is definitely bound to take is to the next point of disappointment.. and this betrayal by the future which keeps on promising happiness with bright hope, needs to arrested….and if we don’t give up on that moment of pain inflicted, and give up on the accused, then we are simply wasting precious time to give in more to the awareness of the timeless neutral, and in it lies all the answers and solutions, apart from those offered by the judiciary, police, political system – local and international.

The argument can continue with this question, “How can you ever think of asking someone in such a traumatic phase to internalize and let go, when it’s simply not easy to forget everything?”.

Who can we punish for what? Do we punish a man or a woman for cheating on their partners, or ignore, just because we have learned to take it as a way of life? Why isn’t cheating, dishonesty, connected with a similarly gruesome feeling such as rape? This is where we are prejudiced and judgmental, biased and discriminating. The elasticity of the mind even though decides to ostracize a criminal, the same mind chooses to fall in love with the subject. The same mind which stabs a knife, lends money, builds shelter and feeds somebody, undergoes infatuation and all kinds of temptations. It is not the characteristic of the person, it is the characteristic of the memory projected as the world, and this world is simply a memorized view, and we all have rehearsed characters playing multiple roles.

So, if we don’t for a while step back from what we are watching, to watch the space in between the sequential thoughts, producing different emotions, then we are not arresting judgment. And when we don’t arrest judgment, we have an action to witness, and a reaction to experience.

The person we are – is determined by the way we want to utilize the universal will – whether to control the straying mind and senses or whether to simply let go and sink into this moment of the will and look for ourselves, how it influences one mind in all of this universe, shaping into different emotions, and bodies – and different worlds – a complete portrayal of a mixed pot, and still the universe remains undisturbed.

The mother’s womb will always be the womb!
