I: Understanding the Concept of Mind

E-mail Print PDF

Human beings, today, spend most of the time of their lives in thinking, contemplating, planning for the future and making decisions. This is true even in the pursuit of spirituality. The pressure of immense, continuous thinking usually results in an incessant state of stress and apprehension. Religious and spiritual masters too are no exception. While we do often realize the futility of thoughts, we cannot “think” of living without thinking. What would life be, if we were not to think anything? It is hard to answer the question because the thoughts cannot grasp the reality of the answer it demands. Our reliance on thoughts, perceptions and logical interpretation of things, has become so strong that we completely miss the reality of our world – even our own existence.

We have our distinct personalities, traits, perceptions, ideas and habits. While we may get away with calling it an individual matter, we may not escape the fact that this very difference exists because of differences in the individual thoughts. We have different personalities because we “think” different. The “thinking” may get influenced by place, time, situation and surroundings, giving us the illusion of multi-cultural dimensions. But it is the thinking or the perception of the world due to thinking that is the dominant factor. What we think we are is just a thought after all. What we are in essence is indeed a reality but this reality is beyond the thoughts. Thus, what we really are cannot be thought about – it can only be known, through thoughtless awareness.

If the shape of our personalities derives from such a simple logic, it should not be difficult to observe that anything coming out of the mind, and thoughts, should be equally subjective and individualistic. Yet, in this world, we have embraced philosophies, ideologies and thoughts from varying minds and individuals. We seldom care to introspect and ask ourselves if we were meant to be doing what we are doing in our daily, routine lives. Sages and spiritual masters in all ages have tried to create an awareness towards the thinking and illusory nature of the mind. We have to understand that when they talk about “ego-less” and “self-less” mind, they are essentially referring to the thoughtless brain. When the illusion of mind, “I” or “ego” departs, all that is left is the thoughtless, sensitive brain. At this point, we should once again recognize that a thoughtless mind simply means, “no-mind”, for the mind is the thinking device itself. It will be easy for the readers if they can visualize the mind and brain as two separate entities – one the illusory, unreal layer of thoughts and the other natural, sensitive and part of this eternal nature. Beware; while you are reading these lines, the very mind is at work.

The only explainable cause of chaotic thoughts, stress, ideas, and continuous restlessness can be the design of mind. This design is such that it is always entangled in tension and apprehension, continuously trapped in the slavery of habits. Habits are nothing but conditioning of the mind in an unnatural way; that starts right from the moment of birth. Since the thoughts are only chemical properties of the body, a certain action or thought at the mental level, circulates itself and gets imbibed as a habit in our basic brain. Due to this superficial activity, the basic brain starts losing its natural properties and qualities. As we get to know more about things through words, language and logic, we gradually start developing a perceptive and illusory personality that we think as “me”. This “me” is merely a thought, or image about ourselves – what we “think” we are and what we would like to show ourselves “to be” to the outside world. The illusion gets so strong and permanent that we start living in this living dream and spend our lives satisfying an illusory image, which can never be satisfied. Logics, arguments, opinions and concepts such as individuality and freedom of thoughts become the life support and before we realize, we start defending something that has existence only in thoughts. We even know it sometimes but cannot help ourselves. We have created an image, a standing in the society and it seem to be in our best interest to continue with what we have build. As a result, the truth and reality stay behind and we continue to walk the path of dreams, desires and illusions. We create one dream after another and the chain continues. Let us try to look at the process by which the mind gets created and intensified throughout our lives.

This peculiar phenomenon that we know as thinking, starts from the tongue. It might sound strange but it is the movement of the tongue that activates chemical reactions in the brain and the thoughts start generating. The thoughts are, ultimately, spawned to satisfy the "I" or "Ego" in a person. Whatever we learn from the process of words is relayed to the brain by the movement of the tongue. Thus, the memory is created by the repetition process in the following order;

  • Registration – grasping by the brain with the help of words. (in the form of name, shape and characteristics of person or object – creation of the conscious mind)
  • Repetition - repetition of a particular word or thought over thousands of times. (creation of memes (copy) by the mind over the genes. Beginning of the subconscious mind)
  • Retention - solidification of genes and memes due to constant repetition of words (mentality or emotions in the subconscious mind. Refer book, ‘The selfish Gene’ by Richard Dawkins and ‘The Meme Machine’ by Susan J. Blackmore and Richard Dawkins).
  • Recall – repetition of old memories and creation of new ones.

We will briefly describe each of these activities to further understand the creation of the mind.

Registration

All the words that we "learn" from our childhoods to adulthood, and later, are grasped through the movements of the tongue. Have you ever noticed that without moving the tongue, we cannot execute pronunciations and dialects? This is the activity that could be described as registration of thoughts and memories. This might remind you of learning the first words.

Repetition

As we learn more words and practice to perfect them, the words start forming on our tongue and we have to move the tongue in various ways to create various sounds. As a result, the tongue starts getting habitual of movements. Due to this habit, words keep on repeating on the tongue and the vocal cord. This repetition causes thoughts to be created. Repeated thoughts get metabolized in the basic (but natural) mind and start shadowing its natural qualities. We have observed that in animals, it is this basic mind that plays the part in their everyday life. This repetition of thoughts goes on, all through our lives. The information gets accumulated and the basic mind gets cluttered. The thoughts stay in our memory as fragments of incomplete information. We often consider this as “knowledge”. We also start creating logic and arguments by mixing one thought with another. It gives a false sense of elation and achievement to the thinker, because the thinker is the mind itself. It cannot do anything else but think. What we normally consider as basic “skills” can rather be termed as the result of repetitive memory.

Retention

Repeatedly thinking about a subject generates a chain of thoughts in the mind. Just one thought erupts and it starts connecting itself with other bits and pieces lying in the memory. As a child grows up, this process of repetition is played so many times, that it turns into a mentality and emotions. The thoughts act as a stream and a person just flows with it. Imaginations begin to appear and the unleashed thoughts float between their own perception of happiness and sorrow. Mental activities take precedence over natural feelings and a person starts contemplating the state of life by actually thinking and believing it. The state of mind or the thought process appears to be the reality.

Recall

Thus, we have seen from the above examples that all the three terms are simply mechanical and the tongue plays a part in each. The brain comes in to the role-play as well. Since bodily functions have to be performed, there are some intrinsic activities that the brain performs, no matter what we think. One of those activities is storing images. It captures images from the lenses of eyes in the same way a camera captures a scene. However, the brain does not associate any thought or idea or even a name to the images. The process seems to be the vital function of evolution and survival by recognizing things as they come in front of us – please take note “not to think” of them. However, with the presence and influence of the mind, this is just what happens. Just as a parasite survives on resources from parent objects, the mind starts associating things with names. It does so, because it has been taught to collect information and create identity all the time. If there were no information, the mind would cease to exist. Since we are essentially minds, we cannot live without giving a name, definition, logic and perception to a thing. Mind uses the images stored by the brain for its own purpose. In the process of life, forgotten memories are recalled from different cells of the brain and perceived as "new thoughts". These new thoughts once again break into the parts, influenced by new alterations and again stored in the brain as "new memories". Every new thought is based on some earlier thought; there is nothing unique or new about them. One might say that he or she thought of something they cannot associate from before. They might not be able to remember at that moment but because of aforementioned mechanical process, the thoughts and memories are there since very old times. It is like a gearbox where each cog in the wheel works on the dependence of the other.

Mind thrives on creating memories (words and thoughts only) and starts putting logic into the natural process of the brain. Some people would argue that, is having logic, such a bad thing at all. We have to be aware that any logic derives from permutation and combination of thoughts and thus remains just another form of thought that appears as “new”. Logic can perhaps provide a very well worded concept but that is what it always remains – just a concept. There are innumerable logics and theories available to us from umpteenth times. Yet, none of them seem to have worked in providing permanent happiness or bliss. Even the greatest of wisdoms in the world, will remain just a theory as long as it is interpreted by the mind. When the interpretation stops and the mind ceases, you will not need any theory, for you would already be “living” in it. Every human being is essentially spiritual in essence. Spirituality is not an achievement or a gain. It is not something that you “embrace” in order to “become” something. You are inherently part of the Nature and spiritual in your existence. Only this fact needs to be realized. And, this realization comes outside of thoughts, mind, experiences or happenings. As long as “you” are there to experience or see things, the mind is there next to you. When “you” or “I” or “me” disappears, you are automatically blissful.

The Web of Thoughts & Cycle of Life

The whole process works like a gearbox, the gears such as slow, fast, intellect and idiocy among thousands of others. As one gear shifts into another in an automobile, our mental gears go from one form to other in the same way. We have changing moods and tempers throughout the day every day of our lives. Our moods depend very much on our feelings. The feelings are, in turn, aroused by the thoughts. Lots of people try to make a distinction between the “mind” and the “heart”. The usual belief is that, there are “mind people” in the world, who are emotionally deficient and thrive on logic, and the “heart people” are those intrinsically sensitive and caring. In reality, the emotions are nothing but condensed forms of thoughts. They are like packed, compressed stream of thoughts that explode the moment a trigger is pressed. It is easy to see how certain words, phrases or even ideas trigger certain emotions. If there is an emotion of love, there had surely been a tremendous amount of thoughts of loves that got compressed in a single emotion. We often believe that a person who has not been loved is not capable of loving others. It rightly points at the above discussion. People who have never seen poverty in their lives (in person or through media) will feel nothing if confronted by it. This is the very reason why some of the riches of this world seem “cruel” or “insensitive” to us. It is all thoughts and mind at play. A good thought or a bad thought always remains a thought. To dream good or dream bad is not the question. The question is in waking up. All the thoughts need to be eliminated before any decision can be made about human life.

Therefore, we may see how the mental process converts into mind with the help of words, thoughts and movements of the tongue. Manifestation of the mind is essentially through the tongue and Vocal Cord, Cortex (cerebral brain), spinal cord and heart. Through these components of the body, the thought waves or the mechanical process of the mind influences each cell in the body and becomes virtually incessant. Even if we wish, we cannot stop this activity.

Since each cell in the body is as alive as the whole body, it is no wonder that the stress is passed on to the heart as well. Probably, this is the reason why we see major heart problems all over the world; especially in societies where logic and thoughts are perceived as the basis of life. Modern science has discovered that 75% of the all physical ailments are actually psychological ones or originated from the mind (in their words; they have not discovered the mind-brain duality yet). Every word pronounced by the tongue instantaneously reaches each cell of the body. We may be able to see the pattern here. For example, how the hair on the body rises when someone narrates a horrifying incident? Or, how your heart starts beating faster, when you are going to tell a lie? "You are what your thoughts are!" holds true in the above case. We pass through numerous lives and carry the subconscious laden with a web of thoughts and behavior patterns. Therefore, it will be futile to try to come out of this cycle with the help of the "thoughts".

Sometimes, people find a certain philosophy appealing. Any philosophy, however, is merely a reflection of thoughts of an individual. It cannot change our lives in any real sense. Any new and given philosophy only strengthens the on-going mechanical process of the mind and things will only become worse. Respected Saint Eknath of Maharashtra said. "You have to be born with desires". He is referring to the same phenomenon.

Freedom

The freedom, again, cannot be achieved just by conviction, belief or understanding. Intellect should be a tool and not a refuge. To change things in your life, you will have to change too. As long as you only "think" and not really "do", the clutter will never end. Thoughts of numerous lives have gathered like dust on our basic mind (jeev dasha).

Now, you must have understood that, the only way to begin is to achieve the state of thoughtlessness. The state of mind where there is no single fragment of thought. Since the mind is illusory, it will disappear with the disappearance of the thoughts. This is not all that difficult as it sounds. You can start by concentrating on your tongue and study its movements. You will notice that no thoughts can occur without the tongue first forming the words. Sometimes, the tongue movement is so insidious and undetectable that the thoughts are being produced unconsciously. Hence, if you do not pronounce a word in your mind, you cannot recall a memory.

If the memory is not there, the mind will tend to remain empty. Therefore, by controlling the movements of the tongue, you will be restraining the mechanical process of the mind. It will not accelerate but gradually become still. Swami Samartha Ramdas, once, described the way of bliss, "Discarding the thoughts and imagine only the state of total thoughtlessness, is the way to happiness." Here, happiness is not the motive but a byproduct.

Mind is "I"

The mechanical process of thoughts and various states of the mind, as described above, gain momentum by the fuel of words from the tongue. What we call "willpower" and "argumentative capacity" is nothing but stronger and stringent thoughts themselves. "I want to become someone", "I want to achieve something", or "Something must happen", are just superlative thoughts being generated in the mind. The Mind wanders in an illusory world, creating false egos and personalities. It throws us into an abyss of uncertainty and confusion, where our aims are set at illusory targets. Nothing can actually be derived by first building a dream in the thoughts and then get depressed by not getting it. The more a person thinks, higher is the mental activity, producing numerous thought waves. These thought waves subsequently affect the whole body and its actions. Whatever the direction, the process generates more desires and keeps on repeating itself, resulting in a maze of desires and ambitions. It is, therefore, not difficult to see that the mind is a mechanical activity, based on the thoughts originating from the movement of tongue. The role of the tongue and vocal cord in the activities of mind, is a very interesting and unique study. Few people have so far recognized this association. We will cover this topic in detail in the next chapter.

The Mind behaves like a computer floppy. The information having stored in from the previous and present lives. It can, however, act only on what it has been fed with. It cannot know anything beyond the given information. Life strives for happiness and completion. But our mind tries to find answers in thoughts and logic, where it will never get one. True happiness lies somewhere else, much beyond the thoughts. As described, we are all slaves of our own mechanical processes of thoughts. Our natural abilities and sensations are buried somewhere deep inside us, shadowed by the dust of thoughts on the brain. It is like a cover of darkness over our true and natural self. As long as you keep on thinking, you will be away from the subtle and true self. There are schools of thoughts that believe in “cleaning” the mind of impurities. The readers have to be aware that replacing one thought with another will not resolve anything. A thought from a “clean” mind, will be a thought in itself. The cleaning that we have mentioned impinges upon the natural awareness of the body and thoughtlessness of the brain. We need to understand that there are three parts to this – the natural brain; basic mind and word-bound mind.

The moment you want to stop the process of thoughts, the mind gets alarmed. It has reigned over you for so many lives, that it would not let you go so easily. It will not give up its ownership over you for anything. Due to this insecurity, the mind creates an illusory personality of each person, which appears as "I" or “me” to them. Each living person, if not enlightened, believes that what he or she looks like in the mirror or what he or she thinks of them as the true entity. The whole life, then, diverts towards satisfying the "I" which is like creating a dream in to another dream. The strong belief of "I" gives birth to belongings; "my nation", "my God", "my community", "my religion", "my family" etc. The ego or "I" starts playing the superior part and the thought forms like "Good" and "Bad" start creeping in. Comparisons start taking place and the ego becomes judgmental. This activity creates a tussle of thoughts and in the presence or absence of one of the elements, gives the illusory feeling of "Happiness" or "Sorrow". Since the thinking process cannot find real happiness, it keeps indulging in the mental imaginations such as God, demi-gods, miracles etc. The conditioning is so strongly imbibed that the Mind cannot visualize any other way out. In reference to this context, Lord Buddha said; "Samsara Rogha, Sanskara Maharogha" meaning, the world (mental) is a disease while the conditioning is an epidemic.

The traditionally conditioned imaginary mind, feels that miracles would make it (I) happy. That is the reason; we frantically keep running behind miracles; Gods, Mahatmas, and alike. We seldom question ourselves whether these miracle performers; ie. Saints and incarnations have really achieved the state of happiness? Why does such a question not arise in our minds? Why don't these miracle performers make the entire mankind happy? Don't these miracle performers ever encounter sorrow? Don't they suffer the pain of illness and death? Why don't such questions arise in our minds? The reason behind this fallacy is that our mind has a false hope of achieving happiness with the help of these miracles. And never do we see this with an open perspective. Then the very basic question would arise, can miracles provide happiness to the mind? The mind that is just a series of word-bound thoughts! In other words it is an imagination that is riding the brain. If such an imagination creates another imagination (collective) in the name of miracles will it achieve happiness? And is there not a possibility that the collective human mind, in order to keep itself entwined for ages, created miracles? The possibility appears to be more. If great miracle performers such as Lord Krishna, Jesus, Moses, have perished, then it obviously makes death the greatest miracle. Because, if the miracle performers suffer the agony of death, it obviously makes death the miracle of miracles. All creatures in nature and even infants (ie. 1-12 months old) have got nothing to do with miracles. Only the conditioned human mind is always eager to experience miracles and that too changing ones. That is the reason we always hold miracle performers on a pedestal. Today, we go to a saint, tomorrow to some incarnation and the day after, to somebody else and the chain continues. Yet the basic question remains; is happiness the subject of the mind?

For the past thousands of years, thousands of miracle performers have appeared and can be found even today, but none of them, individually or together have been able to provide everlasting happiness to mankind. Such a miracle can only be performed by the brain. It is therefore extremely necessary that the brain be freed from the influence of the mind. There is no other alternative.

Finally, the Vedas, Upanishads, Geeta etc. have rated miracles to a lower level and have advised mankind to stay away from them. Today, science has invented machines that can perform miracles (National Geographic 2001). Science is also exploring the relationship between the mind and matter. This will result in machines performing all kinds of miracles and readily available in our day-to-day life. Everybody will be performing miracles. Only then will the importance of the brain be realized and the influence of the (‘I’) Mind that has been formed by the collection of words and repetition of thoughts, reduced and the real natural mind (80% brain and 20% mind) emerge. We will begin to tread the path of true happiness.

We can therefore conclude, that miracles only meet the needs of the mind. The mind exerts influence on the brain and knowingly or unknowingly, miracles take place. That is, if a miracle performer can place his brain out of his body and try to perform a miracle, it will not be possible. It means that miracles are performed by the neurons of the brain, so much so, that the mind breeds on the neurons of the brain. If the brain is freed from the vicious clutches of the mind, miracles performed by such a brain could be unimaginable and such miracles would be of a permanent nature. The first step in this direction would be ‘self realization’. The mentioned paragraph is based on the personal experiences of miracles by the author.

This "I" is the fundamental problem of our lives. It does not matter how much wealth we accumulate or how many worldly things we facilitate, they all will ultimately prove futile. The desires will never end and the true happiness will not come even till the last breath. We have to, therefore, try and practice to first identify and then separate our false ego or "I" from our true self. The beginning is from the tongue.

We would have to however, have a different outlook in case of the deaf and dumb. Their education system emphasizes more on lip movements and signals by the fingers. As a result, their quest will be focused on these elements in eliminating the ego.
