Our level of consciousness decides the types of thoughts we harness. People with higher consciousness always harness constructive, useful, and realistic thoughts. On the contrary, people with lower consciousness always harness destructive, useless, and delusional thoughts. The efficiency of our sensory inputs in terms of vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch in relation to any activity, objective or role in our external environments plays a major role in deciding our state of our mind.
Our sensory inputs, thoughts, beliefs, emotions, trust, love, empathy, sympathy, mercy, kindness, compassion, sacrifice, memories, character, maturity, willpower, determination, commitment, gratitude, ideas, imagination, inspiration, motivation, enthusiasm, ambition, feelings, fear, perception, hope, experiences, intelligence, intellect, our internal and external environments, and finally our level of consciousness all connect and integrate together, forming the MIND.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the expression of a happy and healthy mind. It is the peak of our alertness and awareness about our surroundings, our internal environment, our thoughts, our feelings, and finally the interaction between us and our surroundings, without distraction or overwhelm. To be mindful is not to live in the past or in the future, but to live in the present moment where God lives with us.
