To begin with, as you already know, your surface mind is working when you are consciously paying attention to what’s happening or what’s being spoken. You are working with your surface mind right now, while reading this blog and paying attention to the lessons it offers.
Your deep-minded thinking is working to take care of the many habits and automatic reactions you have (like when driving your car to work – all of a sudden you’re there and you don’t remember the trip!).
The interesting thing about deep-minded thinking is that once it’s trained to do something, you don’t have to give it anymore conscious attention to make it repeat the trained response. Once heart-mind absorbs a pattern, it will hold onto it for a lifetime (unless it doesn’t!).
So, all I want you to do right now is to become the impartial witness to automatic tendencies that make up your personality. Just take the time to notice what you automatically do, (what your deep-thinking pushes you to do); it’s those things that are very predictable about you (others can tell you in an instant). Just by noticing, like it’s someone else (not you), makes the tendency waxy; it becomes less rigid. What makes this process real interesting is that you get to drop that solid feeling that you didn’t notice you had before. Just as you begin noticing the rigidness of your tendencies, you get to take out the rigidity; how much fun is that? From this moment, start watching, there is no need to strain.
I don’t know what you may do without rigid tendencies determining your personality; I don’t know if you would install new tendencies or just be free! Or maybe you would choose to allow the rigidity to remain the same; this is entirely up to you. Suddenly you become aware that the mind is nothing other than ‘thought-waves’ that surrounds your beingness, but right now you’re hovering above those waves (like if you are in a helicopter, hovering above the ocean).
Now I would like to suggest to you that you can change as fast as you want to, and it is especially easy to do when you separate yourself from your mechanical reactions. In these freeing moments, your deep-thinking mind can begin to remember when you were as free as a bumblebee (flying from flower to flower looking for honey), feeling confident and competent!
All of this and more can happen smoothly and swiftly. Did you ever think you could take care of deep-content matters (like ridding yourself of rigid tendencies), just by stepping aside and noticing your automatic reactions? This is a vital step to enlightenment (to lightening up the internal load that deeply influences you) … NOW … very good!
I have just treated you to a very powerful Thinking Ladder process that gives you immediate control of the “I AM” that you choose to be. Taunting tendencies can attack you with sarcastic remarks whenever life is testing you. It’s time to put an end to such tyranny. Begin now to notice what deep-content ‘thought voice’ continually promises you a gain if you follow its advice, but leaves you with a loss (it tells you that pouting or shouting will get you what you want).
This blog offers an awesome insight! Take the time to read it again and ponder how it applies to you. You can guarantee the collapse of intimidating tendencies when you take the time to notice, “Hey, that’s not really me!”
