I wish I’d had a a class in school where I’d learned about how our mind works.
Mind-Heart as in Tibetan Buddhism, because they’re always dancing together don't you think?
But I didn’t have this class…
My tsunami-like inner life and my passion to understand and work with our mind-heart led me to study Psychology, various traditions of Meditation, the path of Yoga, and Movement Based Expressive Arts Therapy, so I could get a grasp on the dynamics of our inner cosmos.
One of the teachings that I love and want to share with you today is about our 3 minds. I had never heard about it before I became a student of Kundalini Yoga. Yogi Bhajan, who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West and lifted it out of the realm of secrecy so we could ALL benefit from its technology during these intense times on Earth, said:
“You have three minds: negative, positive and neutral. A person who does not deal with the neutral mind, even with all the wealth, shall not prosper and can’t be happy because negative and positive cancel each other. It is the neutral mind which becomes the intuitive force in you.” April 22, 1997
So we need to cultivate our neutral mind and become cozy in its realm, because as Yogi Bhajan said, “When you are in the state of the neutral mind, the soul is like a chandelier switched on over you. Communication of the soul is just that light; you are lit up by it.” July 29, 1981
The neutral mind is the space of true peace, where we can allow ourselves to feel ALL of life while we are in it, instead of wasting our life force fighting our ever changing feeling-thoufght-sensations. The neutral mind is beyond polarities. It has no need to label because it is crystalline and compassionate. Cultivating a neutral mind is a gift we give ourselves and All beings too, since it contributes to the peace, ease and bliss in this world!
“To win the game of life you must have caliber. To have caliber you must have an Applied Mind. An Applied Mind is a mind that processes everything positive and negative, then acts from the Neutral Mind to express you. The Applied Mind uses the Neutral Mind to assess all positive and negative but does not react on that basis. It acts to cause a cause that leads to the fulfillment of you and your destiny, you and your highest identity.” (The Mind: Its Projections and Multiple Facets)
Apart from Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, there are other practices that help us cultivate our neutral mind. Prayer, Art, Healing Chocolate Nature and Dance are some of them, but there are many more!
We are unique, and so are our ways of connecting with the Infinite within and in All that is, cultivating the neutral mind, because the paths we feel called to explore will most likely help us feel our inner spaciousness by shifting our brain waves from beta (daily functioning brainwave) to alpha & theta (light and deep relaxation and communion where healing happens).
I bet you have your own ways of accessing your neutral mind already dear star sister, would you like to to expand them?
