The travesty of current education, and parenting, today… is that children are raised in *MENTAL BONDAGE.*
With that said…
I have tremendous respect for you for opening up your mind sufficiently to wonder about this ultimately important subject about Your use of your brain.
Before I begin, please re-define your understanding of the word “Heaven.” Heaven is from the Greek “Oranus,” which means “expansion.” “The kingdom of heaven is within you,” means that the power to reach up, to expand or to develop and grow… is within YOU.
So very many precious, precious hints have been lost upon those who are incapable (or unwilling) to truly “think,” hints that Could assist a person to enter into this state of “heaven.” Yet, you, dear reader, can enter THIS DAY into “heaven.” Please read and re-read what follows care-fully.
Alzheimers, Dementia, senility, loneliness, depression, and each and every progressive disease of the body or mind are caused by mis-using the greatest tool ever to be created: YOUR MIND.
Because you have not been properly taught about YOU, you and most all others upon this planet this day have fallen into this Mental Bondage and been unknowingly living as ignorant slaves.
“Without vision the people perish.” Nothing is more true. Nations, churches, psychiatry, medicine, science, NO man-made organization has operated with clear sight. Thus, the rampant perishing of body, spirit, mind, and soul.
But TODAY is the day! You, reader, must be prepared or you would not have been led to this post. I invite you to lay down your skepticism and, like a meek and wonder-filled little child, ponder upon what I share.
We are now entering into a new stage in humanity’s development, a time when mankind will be so much the master of his thoughts that he will have become as a great magnet for attracting the life he truly desires. Yes, he will be able to keep his body in perfect harmony by harboring only the health thought while excluding the disease thought. He will always be cheerful because he will entertain only thoughts of happiness. He will never mourn but will always rejoice.
Another invitation I extend: Read and ponder my post “The Stairway to Heaven” (paying careful heed to the first twelve verses) in Matthew 5–7 (the correct translation).
No person would think of letting his hand reach out and slap himself or another as he walked down the street, or permit his feet to strike out viciously, kicking those with whom he came in contact, then try to justify it by this weak “lame-brained” remark, “I just cannot control my hand” or, “I’m sorry, but my feet just won’t behave.” Such a man would be a complete imbecile. Yet, most make no pretense of controlling their minds, letting them drift hither and yon with every fluttering fancy.
OUR MINDS ARE OURS TO CONTROL AS MUCH AS OUR HANDS OR FEET!
Though many today, as reflected in your question, believe that they are OVERthinking, the truth is far from this. In fact, “over” thinking is an impossibility.
The great failure of mankind is its failure to THINK. The human race has ceased to think. Being sabotaged by other’s implanted viruses who, likewise, have been sabotaged by other’s implanted viruses and on and on, mankind is currently mostly operating as hypnotized robotic and life-less renditions of REAL Men. As dis-empowered simple computers, most current minds operate not as THINKERS but as “pattern recognizers.” Two or three minds are doing all the thinking for all mankind. The greatest bondage in the world is mental bondage, yet few realize this. Even a worldwide religion promotes: “When the prophet speaks, the thinking has been done.” Yet, it is better to be a beaten slave, and serve with bloody stripes, than to become a mental slave, without power to think beyond the loud shouting or lulling hypnotic suggestion of one’s associates or leaders or the automatic programming subtly transmitted by today’s media.
Oh, humanity! Lift your minds to THINK, for your minds are the connection between your physical being and your soul! Your ability to Truly Think is power unrealized!
Yes, the greatest work of all is to harness one’s own mind. The greatest ruler of all is the one who sits upon his mental throne and rules his thoughts.
A child is born with the ability to think, to wonder, to experiment, to develop, because their minds, in their inherent innocence, are still in resonance with their eternal nature. However, this human ability is systematically and subtly stripped from him through an already ignorant and enslaved society. Education is not mental maturity. Learning is not mental maturity; nor is sophistication, nor pride, nor even worldly accomplishments. Mental maturity is the full developed power of being able to control and use the yet unfathomed power of the mind and the soul. Occasionally one has been capable to enter into “the flow” or a trance-like state and been able to concentrate to a certain extent and to tap the greater supply of power. Thus, inventors, artists, musicians, builders, and others have brought forth hints of man’s vast potential.
Yet, the full power has been denied.
Today’s education takes a child farther from the true process of thinking than anything else. One gains credit in school according to how well he can memorize other men’s thoughts. Knowledge is poured into him which he is required to remember, knowledge that replaces pure intelligence, offering logical, analytical regurgitation of facts and pattern recognition WITHOUT wisdom or the brilliant power that is his birthright. Intelligence is living, feeling, reaching, an alertness of enthusiasm that must be forever pliable. REAL THINKING will never permit one to become a fossiled container of stagnant knowledge, but a continual miracle of advancement. Mental maturity is the finding of the path that leads to the deep and hidden possibilities of the human mind, and gives a glimpse of their full value, opening the way for the complete development.
As proof of mental slavery, ponder upon those who have conditioned their minds to dwell upon worry and think it is justified or mature. Or fear. Or skepticism. These are like the record with a deep groove that sabotages the beautiful music which could be playing by going around and around and around and around upon the same few notes, incapable of pulling itself out of the rut, only to engraven itself deeper upon each passing. Worry, doubt, and fear, are implanted viruses that trap and ensnare the human soul, depriving it of life and the mind of freedom!
“Fear, worry, and doubt can not exist at the same time, in the same mind, as confidence and faith. They must be exchanged one for the other.” (Joseph Smith, Jr.)
When you learn to control thought, it becomes a simple thing to weigh carefully every angle of the problem with which you are confronted, seeing its difficulties, its hopeless aspects, even its utter impossibilities, its unsolved conditions. Then, it will be possible to turn off the record, to relax the mind and to go to sleep in peace, knowing WITH CONFIDENCE that it will be solved. It. Will. Be. Solved. As you command your mind to relax, after giving the subject very careful, clear, confident thought upon every angle, it is possible to turn the difficulty over to the subconscious part of your mind for the solving, which in turn has the power to reach out into the realms of Divine Intelligence and receive answers. The most glorious thing is the amazing thoroughness of such a process, the ease with which the difficulty is completely taken care of, the impossible situation ironed out.
Gaining insight and solving personal problems is done with mental maturity as one casts out the darkness (fear, doubt, worry), and commands with confidence: “Let there be LIGHT!” Light is intelligence, light is truth, light is power.
The reason why controlling one’s thoughts or stopping “overthinking” seems like such a run-away-train, is because, again, parents and educational systems have not taught it correctly! When a person begins to approach the subject for them self, it seems almost impossible to control every rambling, runaway thought. Every thought seems to turn into a laughing, shouting, screaming, boisterous, mischievous child that will keep fleeing just beyond reach. To control the mind in this manner, by chasing down every stray, rambling thought, IS NOT NECESSARY!
If one works in this manner, he will find, at first, that it is necessary to chase each thought around in his mind until it is cornered and then it is necessary to almost hurl it bodily from the brain. This process takes sometimes an hour or more just to corner one elusive, defiant little thought that will sneak in again the moment your back is turned.
THERE IS AN EASY WAY!
- Create a vision for yourself of just WHAT you want the world to be. Make this inner picture as detailed as possible, including the colors, textures, sounds, people, everything as vibrant and fresh as you can. See your self in this world, interacting with those you love who love you. Fill your mind so full of the vision desired, so full of peace and hope and love, that there is no room for anything else. This is your Edenic Garden! Permit no weeds to grow up within your pristine mental garden. Cultivate each neuron with beauty and health and in alignment with the integrity of your perfect picture.
- Now, fill your heart full to the brim and overflowing with rejoicing gratitude and joy that you live in this world… NOW! “Thank You! Thank You!” FEEL Exceeding Gladness, exuberance, JOY! Monitor your feeling tank at all times. When you sense it start to slip with the apparent reality of your present situation, reign it back in. REJOICE! Feel the wonder and awe of living in this precious state, your very real “Heaven on earth!” Maintain this feeling state at all times.
- Each thought that takes up the stage within your mind either aligns with your vision and exceeding gladness, bringing you higher in your joy and hope, or it does not. If it does not, do not chase after it, but instead put greater intensity into your good feeling. Amp up the power and intensity of your vision and exuberant good feeling. Pure, powerful, glorious thought will now be easy! You have no room nor inclination for anything else!
Yes, THIS is the formula that “Masters” such as “Jesus” attempted to teach their followers. Again, deeply ponder upon Matthew 5,6, 7 (see my post at: Matthew 5–7 (Correctly Translated Version) *The STAIRWAY to HEAVEN*, paying close awareness to Matthew 5 verse 12. When one chooses to re-act to every situation with “rejoicing” and “exceeding gladness,” THEN the situation can and will work to one’s good. Always.
This is how “Heaven on Earth” is created.
A more accurate rendition to “As a man thinketh, so is he,” is “AS A MAN THINKETH, SO WILL HE BECOME.”
If the above has been unsettling, please consider that you have had myriad experiences and examples attempting to teach another way of using your mind. This type of education has caused countless thousands to LOSE their minds instead. Many individuals approach ideas out of their awareness with derision, skepticism, unbelief. You, of course, are free to do the same with what I have offered. However, I encourage you to experiment FOR ONE HOUR upon what I have shared. Anyone can do anything for one hour. Consider this the greatest experiment of your life! Create that pristine vision! Fill your feeling tank with enthusiastic, grateful gladness! Hold to it! Then, following that hour, continue one more, then another. Go an entire day with your good feeling. Then, day-following-day, you will shift your life, erase wrinkles, open neuronal channels, and develop greater elasticity, intelligence and JOY as your life opens up with empowered possibilities.
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
