the mind below was quite emotional looking up at the frontal and lateral minds wondering why they look so stupid. Well the three minds live in the one
body and the body took commands from the three minds.
The body wandered around idly at times pausing, and looking around then would speed up to a near run, and then sit down panting profusely. One day the
body got sick of the three minds controlling its destiny so it joined an Army. Now the Body is discplined and organised and follows a one command to
stay in line.
At the end of the day isnt it best to live in a system of order even if it means giving up your freedom of mind?
Interesting. I have a different understanding. All of what we experience in the mind is based on natural law. There are spirals of information that
travel by centrifugal and centripetal movement. These forces of energy and information are then sorted by the mind by the same processes found in
nature: Cohesion, Adhesion, Attraction and Repulsion.
Impenetrability is the state of being whereby one thing cannot occupy the space of another. The stronger will rule the weaker. Emotion is energy in
motion and intellect is internalization of energy. When emotion is stronger than intellect, we are ruled by external forces. When intellect rules
emotion, we are ruled by internal forces. To bring the two together into equanimity, we must be mindful of both forces and regulate them with the
hidden force of spiritual light. The one direction you left out of your eloquent version is the force of looking up toward the one that regulates it
all. When we are mindful of God, equanimity is the result.
Equanimity is a state of mental and emotional steadiness arising from deep awareness. A constant state of equanimity is impossible if the five senses
dictate emotion. To maintain equanimity is to guide action by intellect through the filter of mindfulness of purpose.
Mindfulness is a calm awareness and mastery of emotion. To be mindful is to master intentions of choice in all moments of life.
Here is a previous quote from my thoughts on ATS:
Intention is the first leg of a well traveled journey. The good of life can arise from correct intention if the disharmony caused by duplicity is
eliminated by the intellect. This journey demands only one true intention from us along the path. If we wish the good of life as a reward for our
efforts, then two contradictory goals are selfishly desired. If we pursue the good of life to avoid punishment, duplicity has once again revealed our
selfish intention. True intention, however, only comes by desiring the source of good in life from the perspective of humility.
Humility seeks the good as its own reward. The goodness of God is the peace that comes from choosing His free gift of Grace.
Grace is unmerited favor to the humble.
God's peace is unity with his will. Give and receive only from a platform of humility and reverence for the law of love.
