Spiritual Meme Question Twenty-Four

24--What mental problem is the most difficult for you to speak about/work on right now? Why?


My mind is one of my most important tools.
I pay it so much attention
That i mistake it for myself
It thus becomes a tool of my hungry ego
rather than vehicle of compssion and enlightenment.

I'm not sure i  have ever experienced my natural mind.
my Buddha mind, my beginners mind
The mind that is no mind,
but a piece of the universal consciousness.

My mind has been trained to see
the local version of the illusory world
as the paramount reality.
I have not used my "third eye"
or even believed i had one.

My mind creates my thoughts,
then monitors them, judges them,
filters them.  But by what criteria?
The defense of my needy ego.

The Tao Te Ching says:
The sage has no mind of her own,
she uses the mind of the people.
What does that even mean?
Its time for more learning
on how to be less learned.

Does non-duality mean that mindfulness and mindlessness are the same?
