Man over Mind

In a previous post I was keenly looking for the location of the mind in my anatomy. After due search and a series of conversations, I have come to the conclusion that its an intangible. That inasmuch as we refer to the mind as if its physical its far from so. It is rather an abstract that has a lot of influence over our physical. So that brings me to my present reflection: The mind as a power house.

The mind as some have described, is the seat of memory, wisdom and emotions among others. It is the engine room of our “intangible being”. The strength of the mind decides the strength of the individual. Weak minded people are never do wells , they are moving from goal to goal, vision to vision. They are undisciplined and so they function as a boat without a rudder.

The mind is not an independent enterprise, you are absolutely and completely in control of your mind. That is if you wish.

Often times we have described people as weak,it is only because they have not built up their minds to be strong enough. It is like a computer, “gabbage in gabbage out”. What you want to become is what you should expose your mind to. Strong minded people have always shown focus and discipline in whatever pursuit they are involved in.

Feeding your mind right is at the base of having a fully functional and effective mind. Be extremely  careful of the influences your allow your mind to be exposed to. It is a sponge that soaks up whatever comes its way, good or bad.

The mind is a very powerful thing so much so that when you give up your control over it ,it controls you. In medicine they talk about psychosomatic disorders. These are disorders that begin from the mind and then manifest in the body. Thats an oversimplification of the process just so you understand the power of your mind.

This is a clarion call to be “transformed by the renewal of your mind” even as the Holy Bible exhorts.

I wish I knew a lot of things that I know now growing up but then learning never stops. So now I am making a commitment to myself to position my mind where it will help me be a better person and not let irrelevancies burden my mind. You should do so for yourself too.
