Free Your Mind
What is there to be free of? It is the reactions that are unconscious and upon us even before we realize it and then it becomes difficult to snap out of this negative pattern. What works best is a return to an active or non reactive mind set which moves forward at its own pace. It dismisses the feelings that cause these reactions and rises above them in order to accomplish its own momentum. Using that momentum is the main reason why higher thought always gets you out of the doldrums you may have the illusion of experiencing. When you can let go into higher thought this is where your mind starts to become free, because then you connect with the super consciousness or the highest mind and the ego mind identification with the separation reality is no longer engaged. The focus therefore becomes like unto the explorer who quest for new visions and adventures knows no bounds. Always even in the midst of discovery be ready to move into the next realm of the imagination so that you come let go and not be tied to any kind of pattern based awareness.
The point is not to be locked in by repetition of any form. The new pathways appear always. It is our perception which must always too, be on the lookout for these pathways to rise up into. Just as now there are things that cannot be understood, there is the subsequent strivings for which are the keys to each level or attainment mastered. Mastery then consists of alertness, awareness, fearlessness and an open intellect to allow for these pathways to become integrated into your being.
Be careful in unguarded moments of reverting to a reaction based mind set. This type of mind-set calls for tit for tat which takes you endlessly downward in a negative spiral. Let's deal with how to avoid these downward turns and what to do when you find yourself in the middle of a downward turn as your higher mind clicks in to tell you something is not going right here and that it is time to listen. No rationalizations are going to be of any help here since they are part of the problem of the reactive nature which is always rationalizing its actions. There is only one cold turkey type approach. That is forgiveness. It is the letting of the emotional impetus behind the reaction and then turning the mind like a big 14 wheeler around to face the other way. There are then three steps to follow.
1) The higher mind makes you aware that it is time for action and not reaction.
2) Apply forgiveness. Let go of the emotional impetus behind the reaction now beginning to unfold. Utilize the opposite emotion in its place not as a reaction but as a way to dissipate the negative feelings that have caused a way of thinking that you know cannot do you any good. All of these actions of forgiveness or letting go, or reversing the emotions are energies applied within. They cannot be directed without towards another person or situation because then this is simply another kind of reaction. The point here is to change your mind from passive to active.
3)Now you are ready to turn around your mind and set into motion actions that are directed from above. You will know that they are being driven by the one when your actions are not towards another but inwardly focused to bring forth revelations and understandings that can help you grow your awareness.
Use words of power that actualize your will. Be active in the present moment. Use every affirmation that you can think of and then keep on thinking of more. Remember turning your mind around is difficult at first because of the resistance factor built in by the negative momentum that had previously been built up. Watch for sudden turns which may distract you from your efforts. Keep tuned to the positive momentum coursing along now as a result of your efforts. Soon there will be breakthroughs and they will occur throughout this process as the turning becomes more pronounced and then your efforts begin to acquire a sureness all their own. The initial frantic pace is reduced because you realize that you are finally on the right course and that it is taking you where you want to go and not what your reactions would have directed you. Bless yourself from within. That is to apply the energy of self to the self in opening up further the awareness to move on its own level accord.
