Mind is Everything: Master Your Thoughts, Shape Your Reality

We got motivated from Jim Carrey’s $10 M assignment for the movie ‘Dumb & Dumber’, 3 years after he wrote a self-check for the same amount (when he was not having a fraction of that amount in his bank account) just to keep it in his pocket, just to keep reminding him of his strong desire to earn that $10M assignment.

That is the power of ‘Auto Suggestion’.

I vaguely remember myself, when I was a young kid of about 10 years old, writing my name with a white chalk suffixed with crazy degrees starting with IAS in the kitchen wall of our small and old house. I still laugh when I think about it now. I remember that the list went up to 3 lines in that narrow wall. The funny part is that I was too young to know the nuances of each degree I wrote behind my name except that I learnt from people around me about those most sought after educational qualifications and developed a strong desire to do well in academics at that young age. Some of my relatives laughed at me reading that inscription and started educating me that it would not be possible to earn so many unconnected and diverse qualifications. But my mother never ridiculed me and ensured that my childish scribbling in white chalk was not rubbed off nor cleaned for a long time. That childish prank must have helped me to earn the top score in all my academic efforts.

Visualize crazy things. Childlike enthusiasm in your wishes is good. Don’t bother about those ridiculing your dreams. Only those who would understand your dreams and support your dreams matter for you.

Anna Parkinson was diagnosed with brain cancer, ‘standard’ medicine offered no cure. Anna was told that the tumour was inoperable. Faced with this devastating news, Anna began to uncover the power of self-healing. Fascinated with this extraordinary ‘parallel world’ she developed her innate healing powers.

Eight years later her brain scans showed that nothing, but a trace of the tumour remained, and her original symptoms had gone. Now she sees the extraordinary power of self-healing again and again, not only for herself, but as a healer healing others. Her fascinating book ‘Change Your Mind Heal Your Body’ explores how self-healing works and takes you on Anna’s extraordinary journey.

எண்ணம் போல் வாழ்க்கை is a tamil proverb equivalent to Buddha’s saying ‘What you think you become’.

Our thoughts are very powerful. Our destiny gets shaped as per our thoughts. You will end up getting what you want for sure. If your thoughts are always negative, you will get more and more frustrated in your life. If you strongly believe that your life is full of problems and all problems gang up to attack you, you will spend the rest of your life addressing problems only. If you constantly think that you are blessed, you will continue to remain blessed ever.

Thiruvalluvar said in his thirukkural

உள்ளுவ தெல்லாம் உயர்வுள்ளல் மற்றது தள்ளினுந் தள்ளாமை நீர்த்து - Thirukkural 596

Your Mind is a Friend as well as an Enemy

A story on the power of our mind.

There was a sage who lived in the mountains and was known for performing miracles. Our hero wanted to become the most powerful man in the town and reached out to the sage after a long and tiresome journey.

Our hero asked the sage about his miraculous power to which the sage replied: “I am a simple man and I have no idea about miracles”.

Our hero did not want to give up. He stayed back in the ashram and started performing petty jobs for the sage in order to persuade him. One day the young man was massaging the sage’s feet and the sage asked him to stop as he wanted to sleep.

The young man replied, “I will not stop until you reveal your power to me. Everyone in the town is saying that you have ascetic powers.”

Looking at his determination on the power, the sage answered, “OK, I will teach you a very powerful spell. Your wish will come true if you recite this spell nine times along with your wish”. Young man was happy that he got what he wanted and started to collect his things to leave the ashram.

Sage said in meek tone, “But there is one condition for the spell to work”.

Young man was impatient and asked the sage to explain the condition.

Sage answered, “To make your wish come true, you have to concentrate on it in full silence. And, most importantly, you should not think about the yellow monkey!”

“Oh, that’s not any problem!” the young man said leaving the ashram. “I never think about any monkey, anyway”.

On the way home he started to see some faces. But he was in a hurry and did not pay much attention to it. When he reached his home, it seemed to him that the monkeys looked at him from all the windows. “What a delusion?” he thought. But that was only the beginning! As soon as he sat down with a wish, and told a spell, the monkeys surrounded him. They screamed, built the smiley faces, pulled his clothes. It was unbearable!

When the morning came, he didn’t want to try the spell again. He just wanted to sleep. But in vain! The monkeys tormented him everywhere.

The next evening the young man visited the sage again.

He asked the sage furiously, “I accepted you as my teacher and what you have done to me is not fair? I almost went crazy! Take your spell back and free my mind. Instead of teaching me the miracles, you have developed the monkey mind in me”.

The sage said smilingly, “It is not my fault. I warned you that I do not know any miracle. Moreover, I wanted to show you how undeveloped and enslaved is your mind. The miracle is within you, and you are searching for it in my ashram. Your mind is the miracle you are going behind and that miracle can create yellow monkeys as well as fulfil your wishes and the keys to activate your mind in the positive direction is with you”.
