Mind Boggling Law – State of our Mind shapes State of things to come to us!

Don’t be surprised, this is indeed one of the greatest laws of nature! Scientists, philosophers, faith/community/corporate leaders or Gurus have yet not been able to get a grip of this law. Therefore, you would find sporadic mention of same but no systematic explanation and description through all means and media!!

Very often you would read that states of things to come are being shaped by Almighty, Destiny or Super Natural Powers. These are only perceptions and illusions embedded in our mind with no evidence or substance. Someone may argue that does it mean that mind is greater than God? No; if God is everywhere, which we all believe, then God resides in our mind. So, such question or comparison is obnoxious.

This law confers astounding power to the mind of each one of us; but it is equally astonishing that it has remained beyond the belief of most and some, who got sense of it, have not been able to fully comprehend and command it! If we refer to holy, history or mythology books, you may find mention that some saints were able to exercise such powers. Otherwise, this has remained a subject of fiction and fantasy.

Let us understand how this law functions and can facilitate our great success and strides!

How state of our mind creates the influence

All objects or particles in universe are entangled with one another. It may be difficult to imagine how that works or is possible due to vastness and distances in space, which we see; but this is a scientific fact. Hence, our mind is also interconnected with things around us. It is this interconnection or entanglement, through which state of our mind is able to connect with the state of things around us or under observation by us and create impact on the same. Vice versa is very much true i.e. things around us would influence state of our mind!

Can we identify state of our mind and control it?

This is most interesting aspect. Read and understand it carefully!

  1. We know we have a mind; but no one knows where it is located! It is believed to inside our brain; but our brain is not mind. No one has been able to observe mind directly; all that the most advanced technology could establish as of date is effect that our mind produces on parts of our brain and body. None of branches of science, including medical knows more than this!
  2. Mind controls our consciousness and body. Is there anything beyond our mind? Very unlikely!
  3. State of our mind cannot be static even for a moment; it is always dynamic i.e. changing.
  4. “Current state of our mind” and “our attempt to identify it” are 2 separate activities of same mind and hence cannot occur at the same time. These are mutually exclusive!
    Hence, we can only identify the image stored in our mind for the state, which existed before and not now!!
    Such image gets distorted, if we were thinking or doing something else or any of our emotions was present prior to our attempt to identify.
    Therefore, at best we can judge or identify state of our mind approximately but never 100% accurately!
    Saner and sincere you are to the core, closer you would be to 100%; but can never touch it!!
  5. Can we control it?
    Yes, we can; but coarsely!
    First of all, what you cannot measure or identify accurately, you cannot also control it accurately by design.
    Secondly, your state of mind is instantly affected by your emotions, ego, biases, past memories. You have to drop all these and keep in mind just only what you want to control, which is rare!
  6. Mix-up in your judgment on state of your mind
    1. You are feeling happy; but worry what your spouse might be doing (in so called sub-conscious mind).
    2. You are very focused on design, you are making; but asking your mind to keep it that way!
    3. You are very upset over your mistake; yet you are remembering that everyone learns from mistakes!
      Above are very routine examples (there are innumerable) and you would conclude that the primary feeling (starting part of these examples) is the state of your mind. It is not!! It is completely mixed and therefore, state of things to come would be in any mix or combination, making you believe that the law does not work. Actually, it is truly working!
  7. Mix-up in your control of state of your mind
    1. You are in state of disappointment over failure of your team and want to change it to one of courage to face your management. But, you cannot control your disenchantment with team. You are destined to fail, since due to mix-up, your mind and resultant communication cannot impress your management.
    2. You want people to prevent recurring mistakes; but nag and chide them!
    3. You want to inculcate leadership qualities and think that would improve your image!
      In above example, you bring unconsciously or may be consciously dual purpose and hence, defeat or negate your primary purpose by secondary one.
  8. Examples, where things really turn out, as per state of your mind
    1. One day, you get up in the morning with natural excitement and optimism. You would discover, you had no clash with your spouse, left for office well on time, most traffic signals were green and you could comfortably manage even your toxic boss!
    2. You went for a movie without advance booking and thought that if you get a seat, it would be great; otherwise sincerely no regret. Most likely, you would get a seat for the show.
    3. Your doctor prescribed you to undergo series of medical tests, since he is not able to pinpoint exact cause of your illness (nothing major). You start to worry what had gone wrong with you, since you do not have any major ailment. While collecting report later, if you do it with conviction that apparently nothing is wrong; but things do go wrong. If that be so, you would face it with grit. Most probably, your reports would not show any significant problem!

How best to plough power of your mind

  1. You can best plough power of your mind by being positive for all what you think and do. It is only then, that you would reap fruits with rich flavor.
  2. You can also misuse power of your mind by being negative. More people do this and they get thorns, which they cannot retain or sustain! They hurt and harm others and in turn self. If you believe it otherwise, most probably you do not know the real story of such people!
  3. You need to change or convert 5 things –
    1. Ego –> Esteem (for self and others)
    2. Biases –> Broad thinking
    3. Callous and complex character –> Clear conscience and consciousness
    4. Split-behavior –> Solemnly sincere
    5. Fastidious –> Focused
  4. Be always natural self and do not deliberately desire to influence things to come. You cannot influence that way.
  5. Keep state of your mind positive, happy or hopeful and then, observe things to come……

You are, now, bound to discover that you are Brilliant and Blessed! The Law lives by you!!

    Dear Sir,

    The paragraph about waking up positive and all things going right is amazing. I have been consciously practising positive thoughts and recently attended a discourse by Dada Vaswani – say No to Negative. I am able to completely relate to this article . As the wise say – there are no coincidences in life .Thank you for sharing.

    Kind regards

      I am very pleased with your illustrious views and sharing current experience! If you keep negatives away, then what would you be left with? Only “Positives”! There is nothing in world like neutral, which is actually a combination of +ive and -ive!!

      I wish to share what I had done for decades, while living my usual life. I had been observing on and on that +ive things +ive and -ive things bring -ive with me and several other people, I used to observe this across the world during my visits. Consequently, best selling books like Secrets came on the scene, validating these observations. Finally, I have discovered that actually it is a Law of Nature and that is how I decided to bring out this article. Key is that most people are not able to correctly identify their state of mind and hence, unable to benefit by this Law, as mentioned in the article.

      I am sure that with your intellect, you would take full advantage of this Law and script, and steer to great successes.

    Dear Sir,

    Nice topic 🙂 Very well articulated details of laws which control mind !

    I have one question, when you say “All objects or particles in universe are entangled with one another.” and “things around us would influence state of our mind!” . I had a following understanding of the same thing based on my recent reading of Bhagavat Gita where I understood below details on ‘Controlling Mind’ and I want to get confirmed from you .

    I wish to keep this communication only between you and me as it is bit spiritual and I want to get your opinion about this understanding.

    There are 3 modes of material nature.
    1) Satva Guna – Mode of goodness
    2) Rajo Guna – Mode of passion
    3) Tamo Guna – Mode of ignorance

    Everybody is conditioned with these 3 modes of material nature. and every person at different times have these modes of nature controlling his\her mind with different degrees.

    There are various factors which controls our mind with these modes of nature.
    1. Time of the day – In the morning time , ‘mode of goodness’ is prominent, in the daytime ‘mode of passion’ is prominent and in the night time ‘mode of ignorance is prominent.
    Therefore one should do activities which requires more focus in the morning. Similarly in the daytime one should do activities which requires more physical energy (passion) and one should avoid doing activities in the nighttime. Sleep early 🙂
    2. Food – There are various food which are categorized by these ‘Gunas’. e.g
    Mode of goodness – Less spicy, Less oily , fresh food, Fruits, Vegetarian food. etc.
    Mode of Passion – Food with high protein etc.
    Mode of ignorance – Alcohol, etc.
    3. 5 Senses –
    – Listening to the music in the mode of goodness, passion or ignorance.
    – Watching movies, tv shows because of which mind will be affected by mode of goodness, mode of passion and mode of ignorance.

    Also techniques such as Meditation also helps controlling mind. e.g. Japa meditation.

    One should always try to keep him\her self in the mode of goodness minimizing effect of mode of passion and mode of ignorance.

    Is it correct understanding ?

    Thanks !

      Thanks a lot for your illustrious and encouraging feedback! I greatly appreciate your interst.

      I have gone through your question and details, which you have quoted from Bhagvad Gita. Many thanks for giving me an opportunity to share my thoughts on this.

      Before I proceed, I see nothing wrong in putting this question and my response on the website, to share and benefit larger number of people. But, I would do so, only if you confirm.

      Coming to your question, the key message of Gita is very relevant in our life i.e. do your duty and do not worry about result and few more. But people do confuse with what is supposed to be their duty in various contexts or aspects of life and that is where, we still see problems with people around us.

      Coming to this specific part on connection with all objects and our mind getting influenced by things around us, let us look at it this way:

      Meditation does help a lot to control our mind in the sense of focus and creating consciousness. Essentially, it should lead to change these 2 parameters out of 5 mentioned in the last part of the article. Lot of people do meditation; yet they are unable to drop 2 vices – Fastidiousness and Callous/complicated character! Reason could be that they do not go further to remove other vices and therefore, they drift back to wash away the gains from meditation. About 3 Gunas, timing, food, senses etc, these are more like advise or recommendation to do things more effectively. But, that does not mean that 3 gunas are not applicable or working round the clock! Goodness would always help and that’s what it should be. Moreover, these do not establish the law how state of our mind shapes the states of things to come! This law literally validates that you have divine power in your mind.

      In short, what you have quoted is a good advise from Gita and what article talks about is the law how mind works and you can take benefit!

      Please let me know, whether i have been able to answer your query to your satisfaction; otherwise I would happy to explain you by real life examples.

    Somewhere I feel that your MIND = GOD. Given the fact that God is nowhere but within you, I tend to agree on the former verity.

    So of-course, whatever we think… is going to and will eventually come our way!!

    It is actually quite difficult to control our minds, at-least as I see it. It’s nice to read what you have posted, but a little bit… a very little bit difficult to implement… it’s our MIND nevertheless – the creator and the destroyer of human existence… 🙂 but will surely try to put your words into practice…

    Thanks for sharing!!

    • Feb 26,2013 at 4:47 pm

      You have illustrated your thoughts very well! I indeed appreciate.

      It is true that most perceive that it is very difficult to control mind! If that was not the case, we would have been in a different world. It is also a fact that when we think some thing is difficult, it would really be turning out to be so in line with the law presented in this article!! The logic is plain and simple – the very thought of “being difficult” has instantly created resistance in our mind and therefore, it shuts down to think simpler ways.

      But, you are different than most – is not it? If that be so, you can and would make it!!

        Yes exactly, as we’ve been reading through-out this post, it clearly says – You are what you think… and You face what you think!! So of-course, if you think you can’t do something, you’ll never be able to do “something”.

        I wouldn’t say I am different (every other ‘self-obsessed’ person today thinks that he/she’s different :)), but yes, I’ve my own ways of thinking and dealing with things… and I enjoy that!!

        I do things that please me… and your suggestions in the post are definitely pleasant enough to act-upon… 🙂

        • Feb 28,2013 at 12:07 pm

          Remarkably well understood by you! However, true understanding is only when it is applied in actions, which I am sure that you would do.

    Sir, just to add on little more, There are few books which actually states the technique to use this principal for further utilization in real life. “Creative Visualization” a book by Shakti Gawain is an example. In marathi there is a book “Sarjanshil Kalpanashakti” which elaborate technique of “Positive Statements” & “Positive Imagination”. They say it helps your mind to fix in positive frame & then your power of mind changes your life in positive direction.

    It is interesting.

    Thanks for sharing the valuable thoughts. It helps us to grow as a better person.

    • Feb 23,2013 at 1:20 pm

      Thanks for your valuable inputs, feedback and sharing info for 2 books.

      There are many best sellers around the globe on how one could create positive frame of mind and talks about its amazing power. But, paradox is that most people are yet not able to fathom and follow! This Law provides a new opportunity to understand how mind functions. As mentioned, science and all other avenues are in dark over this; even though they may claim otherwise.

      I hope, people are now able to reap real fruits, if they wish, because this Law is proven and path breaking!

      I believe the law brought out in this article can help you to be very successful in your career and life in general.
