human thought

"It was at this point, that I came to realize the powerful effect that CONVICTION or unwavering FAITH had on the environment when stating a command or even a belief.
What was even more startling was my mind-opening, 'cosmic consciousness' realization that all I had been witnessing was really the 'Creative Power' of Divine Mind Itself made visible in the 'shimmer of tiny motes'.
Not only this, its appearance could be profoundly affected by the activity of human thought." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 11]

"As I revealed to you in Letter 1, during the time I received full illumination in the desert, I was shown that 'matter' was not really solid. I was not given to understand exactly how the electrical particles which I termed the 'shimmer of motes' took on the appearance of visible 'matter'. I only knew that these 'motes' were moving at high frequencies of speed within 'GOD MIND' and 'GOD MIND' was therefore universal.
I perceived that 'GOD MIND' was both the creator - and substance - of all things within creation itself. Of this, I was absolutely certain.
I also 'saw' very clearly that human thought, when fraught with conviction or emotion, radically affected this process of materialisation of visible forms.
Therefore the human mind could - and did - interfere with the true intention of 'GOD MIND'." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 6]

"Man has made himself incapable of facing what is, inwardly. Therefore he has a concept about it and acts according to that concept. Therefore the fact, the concept and action are in contradiction and there is a battle going on. The interval between the observer and the observed is time, containing numerous ideas which prevent actual observation of the fact.

In relationship, the observer is the image, looking at an image which has been created about the other. So the relationship between the observer and the observed is not actually relationship. When the observer has no image, then the observer is not different from observation. ‘What is’ is the observer, not ‘the observer is looking at what is’. There is no quality of choice in this. !

Realistically, the mind is rich in a variety of different aspects. Emotions, thoughts both past, present and future, ideas about projects, memories, prejudice and biases, happiness and sorrow and so on. The complication begins early. If you approach the mind simply without focus, it would be like looking at a great panorama of hills, trees etc.

The method must use intention to focus on a particular field of study, like a person has when working on a crossword puzzle or jigsaw. A mere glance will tell us what this is, but it needs a careful and intentional focus to see all the little details. In life, we miss a great deal of what happens simply because we never look closely enough.

The mind is very quick to use thought to analyse, but this is the where the problem arises. Immediately there is a division; there is the subject, there is the thought and then the thinker. Then, to compound the problem, the mind takes up analyzing the thought. The whole goal is to avoid this division simply by knowing when it happens, but also why.

It happens because there is not enough intention to stay on topic or in focus, but also because the mind is simply more interested in wandering off or just is not really sincere. Very often the fantasy is both more important to people, while also the original cause of the problem that caused the stress.

We may observe a feeling, such as anger, but when we observe it without leaping into analysis we can clearly discern a cause or focus of that anger. The anger is dependent entirely on the object and a desire to do something about it. If we are angry, we direct our anger towards the subject often in order to maintain our anger. All anger therefore has intention involved to occur as well as to stay. This is where the challenge lies.

If the person is not careful, they will begin to think about this all the time , generated destructive thoughts. Intention and anger are simply processes in the mind acting on an impulse object, such as a memory or experience, or an image or symbol.

The problem is reinforced by identifying or analysing it as a problem. This process has divided the mind in a non-productive way and caused more distress and complications. Analysis, in practice, is an invasive or destructive process. However, if you observe it as it is, much can be learnt without needing to pull things to shreds within the mind.

By writing down what you have observed you can move from one step to another until you don't need to write anything down at all. When a person has noted that there are separate but joined processes to make the emotions, then he can then act on them. Because intention is the key ingredient, when you let go of the intention, the problem resolves itself and the conflict falls apart.

Without using thought or judgments, you can stay clear of getting involved to your own detriment. This means you can ultimately understand not only how the mind acts and reacts, but what and how you can do something about it to improve your health and well-being.

Rising above our problems, like a lotus rises above the water, is the lesson. It is important to be able to let go so you do not drown in our feelings and thoughts and so can stand free, which gives us happiness and well-being." Krishnamurti https://www.wikihow.com/Explore-and-Observe-the-Mind
