In the last blog post we have uncovered the conditioning of the mind, the second mind. There are several methods to write a new program that overrules these conditionings.
A quite common modality is NLP: Neuro-linguistic programming. Another one that is within the scientific standards is CBT: cognitive behavioural therapy. Both working with communication to identify the conditioned behaviour and change it by ‘overwriting’ it with new information. That can be done also by simply practicing ‘positive thinking’.
But all this methods are addressing the mind to overrule mind pattern: they try to get rid of the problem with the help of the problem. Does that sound right?
The mind will not get rid of itself
And exactly here lays the problem: the mind is not willing to get rid of itself.
It might pretend to be on the same side as you and your intention to change, but when it comes head to head with a perceived life-threatening situation, it will pull the plug and retreat back to the conditioned behaviour. Who cannot tell a story when this has happened over and over again? We all go that far and then something happens and we’re … falling back into old habits. And that means peace of mind is gone once again, and drama enters our life in form of a finished relationship, a lost job, a dis-ease, an eating pattern, or any form of depression.
So if we cannot rely on the mind, are we doomed with our conditioned mind? Is real change not possible?
Thankfully we are also blessed with another important part of your body system: the heart. We not only have a physical heart, that pumps blood through our veins, but also a spiritual heart, that goes by the name of the second heart. The yogis of the world have been telling us all along, that this is the source of life, where decisions ought to be made which will lead us to a creative, fulfilled and peaceful life.
So the next question is: how do we access this non-physical heart, the second heart, to overrule the second mind? In the next blog post we’ll dive into the world of spiritual healing. For now, ask yourself: how far down the rabbit hole do I want to go? …TBC
