Picture a psychiatrist’s couch with you reclining upon it while you attempt to describe your problems and emotional issues to your therapist. After you finish the “50 minute hour” with the Doctor he looks at you and tells you that all your problems are really all in your mind. He or She is absolutely right. $225 later you may feel a bit better for having shared your feelings but the solution still lies with you.
It’s all in your mind! Of course it is. Your entire life is in your mind. Your whole existence is in your mind. Your body is just the mobile device to transport the mind. You are your mind! This is obvious to some but many more of us really believe that the body is who and what we are. Even more of us confuse the brain with the mind. They most certainly are not the same.
The brain is an organ of the body, an electro-chemical organic processor and bodily interface for the mind. So where is the mind? Science currently is operating on the theory that it exists in every cell of our body. In other words, the mind is the sum of our parts. Metaphysics and theology tend to see the mind like an aura or magnetic field around the body. This is what cerulean photography captures when auras are photographed.
If you haven’t seen your aura yet, or don’t even know that you have one, get it photographed when the opportunity presents itself. You will be amazed at what you can learn about yourself by understanding the energy that you project through the electro-magnetic field that we call an aura. Every human projects this energy every second of their lives. This is the shadow of the human mind.
The Mind to me is the Divine Spark, the Divinity within each human. It is that part that knows that it knows. It is the self aware part of the human experience. It is the imagination which is unique to humanity; the part of us that has been called the proof of God’s existence. It is what allows you and I to be able to escape the bonds of environment, the shackles of precedent, custom or the “way it has always been”. If we can see it in our mind’s eye, we can create it in form. All thanks to our imagination; perhaps our greatest gift from the Creator.
Imagination is that part of us that can take a mental trip to stars and galaxies never before seen by humankind. It is that part of the builder that sees the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge long before the first hammer rang or the first girder was welded in place. It is that part of us that sees a world where character, not appearance, is the sole measure of a human. Imagination is the part of us that sees every child safe, loved, going to school, not one hungry and all humanity safe and happy.
Without the fears, ideas, dreams, plans that are “all in our mind” nothing ever comes into form in the “real world” of stuff and things. Not one thing was ever created in the Cosmos or on Earth without first appearing in some sentient being’s mind. In truth, all human life takes place in the mind, aided by the organic computer that we call the brain.
Your therapist was right, it is all in your mind but that does not mean that it isn’t real. There is nothing more real that what is in your mind. Your thoughts and emotions are the building blocks of your life! In truth you are your Mind. When we in Religious Science say that your mind is the Mind of God, your love is the Love of God, your life is the Life of God; this is what we mean: We are all expressions of God, part and parcel of the great Divine Mind, the Universal Intelligence, the Great I Am which we call God. God and each of us are truly one.
If you can conceive it, believe it and see it already done, you can experience it.
Until we are together again…walk in Light and Love each and every day.
