Over the past few years my focus has been on Simplicity. Specifically simplifying all areas of my life.
During this period of simplification I couldnt help but think that the chase after a wealthy life style is a rather complicated affair: the standards keep shifting, and the worries are many.
That’s why Spiritual mystics speak so often of ‘detachment’. By taking our focus off of getting stuff, we have more of ourselves available to focus on learning to love rightly, or taking time to be face-to-face with those in need, or learning , or learning how to depend on the Divine. You can’t be spiritually in tune and chase wealth; most of the time, the paths go in opposite directions.
From the time I started learning about spirituality and the Divine, I was often faced with situations where I needed to make choices. Choices between Needs and Wants.
“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” ~ Buddha
In order to rewrite the mind positively we need to understand its composition. The mind is composed of three parts, the conscious, the subconscious and the superconscious.
The conscious mind is the part we are aware of – the part that does the thinking, worrying, planning and creating. It is a tiny part of the structure; it is the subconscious that is the looming bulwark, a massive entity with incredible powers and potentials. Its unique characteristic is that it can create anything that we command it to create, by virtue of the thoughts we think.
If you believe that you cannot achieve something, if you believe that you cannot have something, the subconscious will create conditions, so that your beliefs are proved. To transform your life, it is very important that you seek the help of the subconscious.
