Watching the “coloured mind”
Hello students this week we will be working with the following in the teaching theme :
Mind becomes “coloured” by what it experiences.
It is a never ending cycle if we run after a temporary fix of pleasure to overcome pain.
Mind is constantly changing and can only be happy for a certain time.
Patanjali explains how True Self known as Purusha is the owner of mind and is the Lord of the mind.
It is Purusha that can recognise the changing nature of the mind.
By becoming one with the experience in mind without expectation, the mind becomes free. Similarly if seeing without conditioning, bias or prejudice then mind becomes enlightened. It is Purusha that always knows moods, emotions and thoughts, always watching them from this place helps to release.
