Powerful complexity within an entity.
A faculty with many windows.
Thoughts, memories, will, sensations and imaginations.
Serving or swerving.
Guiding or misleading.
Exotic expressions whirl around.
Manas, Ahankar, Sat Chit Ananda, Buddhi, Sushupti, Shuniya, Ingrat, Turiya,
Tattvas, Dhyana, Maya, Dharma and Karma.
The wondrous aspects of my brain, wider than the sky, the vastness of the imagination,
the ability to weave new meanings, new beginnings is fulfilling.
May Maya the great illusion of reality not steal my sensitivity and sensibility.
Oh my foolish mind why do you cloud and crowd,
tricking, creating illusions that turn into confusion and commotion
instead of deep devotion,
I have choices, tools, I am not a fool.
I meditate and realize that there is a world of me, a mirror in which my mind is reflected.
Open like a garden with fertile soil, so I plant and toil.
Seeds I plant can sprout, bear fruits, or don’t even grow roots.
Sometimes it is a thick overgrown jungle, blocks me to enter.
I plead, I am your friend, let me in.
Or better not; I forgot it can be a terrible, frightening place where I can lose my face.
A curious little monkey unruly and smart, chasing things, never still, tearing apart.
It can be a roaring waterfall, changing, noisily entrancing and enchanting.
I befriend my mind and experience the miracle.
It turns into an angel and serves.
Allowing my mind to be my master, it turns into a monster, what disaster.
Mental intrigues happen when I allow my mind to be on autopilot,
with determination and my direction my mind has the capacity to act beyond
space and time, and I am perfectly fine.
When I speak from my heart centre, magic happens and doors open for me to enter.
Be polite, beautiful, and be a light;
To still my mind I can use sound, different sounds abound.
Basic sounds with rhythm penetrate my mind and redirect the flow of thoughts.
I tell my mind not to dwell in the past, not to dream of the future,
but concentrate on the present moment as it affects the future and heals the past.
I mind my mind and meditate to think straight and be a light to send out into the world
raising its vibration, what a celebration.
In meditation it is efficiently and effectively kind.
Sharpen my skills to guide my mind through the stages of learning and mastery.
Me, only me am entirely responsible for every decision and choice I make.
I am the master of my mind.
Like a traveller hiking up a steep hill, wading across deep streams,
creep through the shadow-filled thickets that I increase my strength and build my confidence.
Transform my capacity for vision to complete my journey.
To experience my True Self and reach Infinity.
