The article emphasizes on how to control your mind. Mind is a powerful thought engine, which sends signals to the brain and heart, that in turn sends actions to the body parts. A human body is a machine and the mind is like the commander for the machine. To calm the commander there are some best relaxation exercises that can be done.
Can you see mind inside a man? When we say “Brain”, it is a physical organ fixed inside the head of a man. When you say “Heart” it is another physical organ that pumps blood to the different body parts and is fixed inside the central body of the man.
Where is mind inside the man?
In physical existence, there is nothing called Mind inside the human body. Mind is like the virtual mirror of a man. It is a reflection of his desires, needs, emotions, thoughts, ideas, and dreams. The mind is a non-stop thought engine. It generates a million thoughts everyday which is delivered to the real brain and heart of a man.
I would say mind is child of the man’s brain, while conscience is the child of a man’s heart. While the brain’s child keeps pondering over thoughts to earn success, the conscience child stops it from differentiating good vs bad in life. When a million thoughts run through the human mind, this is how it functions:
Thoughts a Mind [Virtual Existence] a Brain [Converts these thoughts to ideas and actions] a Heart [Conscience of the heart tells the mind the difference between good and wrong]
The above process is continuous and happens 24/7 on a daily basis. How can a man rest when his mind is questioning him all the time? How does he rest this chattering mind and give some rest to himself. Even if his mouth is shut, the mind keeps talking all the time. It’s like an inner boss.
