Despite living in the same world why some people are calm and others are nimble? Why some people are distinctively creative than others although inhabiting in the same world? Why some individualities are fluently forgiving while others aren’t while abiding in the same world? numerous analogous questions arise in our mind and we leave those either unsearched or we search in the books. There are a whole lot of differences between knowing and understanding an answer from books and having the answer from experience or from within.
To answer straightly, people are different because they perceive effects else. Perception is a function of the mind. An existent can perceive the same effects else in different times. Going a many way deeper, people act else depending on their countries of mind. still, my intention isn’t to write on why people are different from each other but rather to partake my understanding from soul-searching and consummation regarding how a calm state of mind helps us to perceive better and to live a predicated life.
Two Spaces Inner( internal world) and external( physical world)
As conscious beings, humans can observe two worlds internal and physical. Let us relate to the internal world as inner space and the physical world as external space/ world.( There are more subtle spaces that won’t be included then to keep the write- over simple.) There are two countries of living living in the mind and living with the mind. Those who fully live in mind without tuning in with the external world, live a life of imagination and frequently been called as fantasizer or fools. On the negative, people who fully conscious of both the inner and the external world and remain in sync, live with the mind, are called yogis. knowledge is the crucial difference between the two consummations. A lunatic/ fantasizer has no control over his mind; in discrepancy a yogi has full control over the mind. The further conscious people are, the further they’ve control over the mind. People in between these two axes are ordinary people and ordinary people come great by having control over the mind.
Silence is the precondition to having control over the mind. There’s no mistrustfulness that the external world is veritably presto- paced and noisy. Events that be in the external world produce ripples in the inner world( mind). Being entangled with the external world, the mind discordances constantly. A constantly drooling mind can not concentrate on work while a silent mind absorbs everything nearly incontinently. The silent mind can see the play of chaos and order with further clarity. An existent can not change the external world but can have control over how important ripple will be created in the inner space by being apprehensive of his/ her perception. Once the mind gets relieve of the ripple it has created within through perceiving the external world, it’ll go back to its calm nature.
Leaving extreme cases, perception creates utmost of the differences in how an individual receives and responds. There’s a short period between entering and responding. An existent must be conscious to observe the ripples after entering and before responding.
These words might feel teary without having experience. That was true for me as well. sayings touch our heart but it’s the silent mind that can ‘ see ’ those. I’m participating my soul-searching on having both silent and obsessive countries of mind as an illustration without detailing each event.
Silence and My Pendulum Mind
I started being apprehensive of my geste
since 2016. still, it isn’t until around 2020 that I started being happily conscious of my vast inner world. As we perceive the external world and fill our mind from nonage( actually before that period) which contributes to shape sundries for adult life, it’s necessary to compactly punctuate the surroundings and how that impacted my mind.
In my nonage, I was an wallflower. By the description of ménage used in economics, we were( and still are) only three members my parents and me. still, ignoring the description, I was raised in a large family of roughly thirty cousins on my paternal side who were my uncles, aunts, and relatives. We were abiding in a request area, which was veritably crowded at that time. Our house was located on the bank of the swash Kushiyara. The gentle breath by the swash’s edge was healthy for the body and mind. The seaside remained calm in the morning and autumn. On the other hand, the request in front of the house was noisy. There was a Shaw shop next to the house constantly produced sound pollution which frequently was veritably disturbing. When the shop wasn’t in operation in some particular times of the day, it would be insolvable not to notice the calm terrain of the place.
I guess that the different environmental countries in the front and the reverse of the house, as well as the sound that the shop produced in specific intervals, enabled me to fete the play of silence and sound and how similar shifts impact the mind. There was another conspicuous sound at that place. The swash was a route for trade and hence weight could be seen constantly. In the autumn, when I was reading or gaping at the sky without any study, a unforeseen blow of a whoosh would catch my attention. I was used to running on the aft gate to see the weight.
I enjoyed the beauty of nature since I was a child. Sunrise, evening, moonlit night, dew in downtime, rain in the stormy season, clear sky in afterlife — everything attracted me to nature. Intentionally, my mind would be absorbed in nature and spend hours looking at the sky without being apprehensive of the surroundings. Despite having the trait of being lost in nature unconsciously, I had a sharp focus on and attention to my study.
