The quiet mind
A constant in all systems of self-realization of East is the certainty that, in addition to the chaotic mind of surface and the messy susbconsciente, there is another dimension of mind that manifests itself only in a haphazard and very fleeting way. How, for example, when we were engrossed watching fire or watching a sunrise... Calle Ramiro writes.
Or when to give a sense hug a loved one, we ensimismamos in the silence of nature, or us anonadamos with a melody. In such situations, to stop thinking, and therefore be mitigated the ego, we have a touch of deep stillness that comforts us, harmonizes and enriches. We have visited, improvising, another mind, calm mind, which is hidden behind the conceptual mind as the Pearl in the oyster or the cream in the milk.
The mind quiescent, independent schemas and old patterns, free of ideation, attachments and aversions, is a source of harmony, serenity, well-being and balance. It reports that are free of judgments and prejudices and approaches that allow to see beyond appearances, projections and interpretations and experiences that release. The mind still, to which approaches are one through introspection, meditation and inner transformation, is clear, spacious, not self-centered and carrier of wisdom.
Although the ordinary mind, with your ideas and concepts, is necessary for everyday life, it is insufficient to achieve inner peace and find existential answers, whereas in mind she still, silent and deep, non-attachment or hatred encadenantes Bliss, calm and clarity. Ego and thoughts conspires to steal inner bliss and serenity, but very old is the teaching that "when thought stops, the light of being manifests".
Looking on the other side of the veils
That quiescent mind spiritual currents called it Rigpa or clear light, other unmani Dakinis, or other Wu-nieng or no thought, other not-knowing... But they are different words for the same fact: that all human beings, when silenced his chaotic mind of surface and doesn't connect with the indoor fountain or prelude to thought, achieved a dimension of consciousness that transforms and free, accessing a very intense experience of unity, stillness and clear vision of the certainty that everything is interdependent.
The mind of surface and thought saturated with avidity, obfuscation and hatred, fails to get out of its mess and does not perceive what is, but what it wants or fears or hates. The mind of surface adds confusion to confusion, and it is like wash ink ink stains. According to the great mystic Kabir, It is a fraud, a scam, a House with a million doors. That mind has not changed any of the real problems of man and society, and, distressingly, perpetuates all the immense difficulties that built a narrow and selfish view. The only obfuscation born obfuscation, where there is no lucidity and compassion.
Requires the support of a new, more calm and clear mind. No go get it anywhere, because it is in the profound nature of the mind, waiting to be found and updated. It is peace and is unit, is silent and is love, is light and is opening. All genuine techniques of self-realization, being wary of the programmed mind and surface, try to provide us with teachings and methods to awaken to a new and mind able to leap out of the apego-odio circuit, ego and all its tentacles. In order to find the eye of ox to the quiet mind, have arisen many methods of meditation, yoga, the vipassana, mahamudra, the technical contemplative mystical, zazen and many others.
The Sun can be ensured by macilentas thick clouds but not so just ceases to exist; in the same way that you can not see a lamp after a black curtains, so the mind quiescent is veiled by patterns and unhealthy tendencies of the conditioned mind. But freedom and hope, the fullness and peace, are not egocentric mind, that power of unaffected fullness which is common to all constituted and that the seeker, as a tireless Bloodhound, makes a play, not only for its own benefit, but also for the of other creatures, because when one discovers his original face, he realizes, gloriously, that in the same, they light up the faces of all sentient creatures. Only desirable place for an infinite compassion, egocentric mind there are exclusion, but there is only inclusion in the quiescent mind.
