The ‘divine’ partnership between man’s mind and his higher mind has enabled man to achieve great things. Our higher mind is the whole unlimited mind existing beyond the limitations of the mind controlled by our belief system. Our mind acquired an education founded upon believing the authorised words used to define reality. Words define the sun, the moon and stars and everything that is represented by a word. The higher mind is the miracle that is the truth of each one of us. Our conscious mind and our belief system are what we use to define our body and what is perceived as reality.
The divine relationship between the higher mind and the body’s mind has been contaminated with a mind programmed by educational beliefs. We must realise a greater truth if we are to transcend the control of our belief system. Why transcend the limitations of a belief system we have invested a lifetime acquiring? If we feel ‘unhappy’ or ‘depressed’ or ‘stuck’ we can fall into a vortex of recurring thoughts and feelings that seem to act with autonomy. Depression is a ‘concept’. Depression is a word that is used to describe a perceptually induced chemical effect that is ‘felt’.
This dynamic is caused by defining our experience with our beliefs. Our beliefs prejudice our perception ensuring that our feelings respond to what we believe about an experience rather than the experience. Once we have judged a situation we cannot see or feel anything other than our own judgement when exposed to that situation. If we worship our beliefs as truth our higher mind will not challenge our conscious ego mind. We were each given free will and our higher mind will not challenge the perspective of the identity that we have put our ‘faith’ in.
This is because we believe that our given identity is us. Our conscious mind serves our identity which is the perspective we each refer to as ‘me’. If we experience depression we may begin to question what we believe and what we value. If during these moments of depression we can recognise and question just one belief that we hold as truth our higher mind will find ways to show us where it is not true. It is for each one of us to question our self and our experiences if we feel bad. Unless attacked or injured the cause of what we feel is always what we believe.
Only we can know our self perfectly and beyond all possible knowledge related to what ‘we’ perceive to be reality. Our perception of reality cannot exist within our mind without our ‘judgement’ of that reality. What is more powerful than our perceived reality is the ‘higher mind’. It is our beliefs that sustain our perception. If we dislike something and we question why we dislike it it will eventually result in a revelation leading to a much ‘greater truth’. We can identify why we dislike something or someone by establishing the truth of any justification existing as ‘why’.
When we question why we do not like someone or something we will come up with a reason why. The reason is not the cause of why we feel what we feel but it establishes a starting point from which to begin our own ‘self-inquiry’. For example if we are angry because we have lost our job we may believe we are angry or depressed because we have lost our job. If we question this it may reveal that we are angry because we got fired not simply because we lost our job. So then we question this and it may reveal that we are angry with our boss.
So I may question why I am angry with him and say it is because he fired me. So we question this and it may reveal that we think he was wrong and unfair. So when we then question if it was ‘wrong’ it will reveal a personal criteria for what ‘wrong’ means for us. Eventually we have a greater understanding and realise that we must accept ‘what is’ if peace is to be restored to our mind. Unless attacked or injured a belief is always the cause of any feeling which is not peace. If we question every one of our beliefs that we use to justify our bad feelings all that will remain is truth.
When we feel depressed we have a mouse masquerading as an elephant within our mind. If we question why we feel what we feel the power of our beliefs is greatly diminished. It is only our faith in our beliefs that gives them power over what we think and feel. If we question the truth of any belief we can remove its control over us. When the belief’s hold on us is weakened new ideas can be communicated by our higher mind to take the place of our beliefs. Our greatest supporter, coach and resource is our higher mind which is ‘unlimited’ and not constrained by a single belief.
We are the believer so the higher mind must bow to our will and is indirectly controlled by each one of our beliefs for as long as we put our faith in them. The answer to our question why will reveal the information and evidence required for self-inquiry. Self-inquiry leads to self-knowledge. Self-inquiry will eventually reveal something that our beliefs cannot sustain as truth. When we do this our perception will change. A consequence of a change in perception is a change to how we think and feel. If we have a strong desire for something it will regularly return to our mind.
An idea comes from our higher mind. An idea will be new or vague so our beliefs may prejudice our minds to question if the idea is even ‘possible’. Our higher mind is omnipresent and unlike our ‘belief system’ it is infinite. Once we suspend or question our own judgement our higher mind will provide an idea that transcends those limitations. What we define as an idea will recur until we act upon it or create a belief to reject it. If we recognise the idea and act upon it we will acquire a greater insight than was experienced by worshipping the constraints of our beliefs.
We may act upon an idea and compare it with a criterion to decide that is was a failure. There is no failure. There is something to realise in every experience which we could not have realised if we had not acted upon the idea. What we realise may appear to be separate and unrelated but our higher mind is what is misrepresented by the word genius providing unlimited opportunities to liberate us from our mind’s incarceration. Establishing communication between our conscious mind and our higher mind converts creative potential into direct experience.
This connection is broken by believing we are limited. That limitation exists in the form of our given ‘identity’. If we can re-establish the connection with our higher mind we have a direct line to our own creative wisdom. In truth there is only one mind. Our creative potential comes from within. To tap into our creative abundance we must question everything that we believe. This is how we transcend the limitations of our beliefs. Our faith in our beliefs is the only thing that can prevent us from discovering what lies beyond them.
