No Mind? No Problem

Many of us believe that we are the voice in our head, but if that is you, who is listening? Our true nature is that silent presence which is aware of the mind.

 

The state of yoga is when there is no mind and only your silent nature remains. This simply requires that you remain unattached to the mind.

 

The goal of the yogi is to always remain in this state.

 

The mind creates so much noise within us that we miss out on the beauty of life. We miss the bird singing, the wind blowing in the trees, the feeling of being alive, and the flow of the present moment.

 

99% of our problems come from the mind. We spend our time constantly reliving our past, imagining the future, lost in thought, craving, pain, and wishing things were different. We become disconnected from life and our loved ones, and we feel dull, heavy, and burnt out.

 

But when we choose to release out attachment to the mind and remain inwardly silent, all these problems vanish. We start to notice the little things that make it so amazing to be alive. With no mind, we can deeply connect with life and our loved ones, and we feel clear, light, and restored. With no mind, we notice the song of the bird and the dance of the wind, we feel life within and all around us, and we return to the flow of the eternal present.

 

While yoga may be simple, it is quite difficult at first because we are addicted to cravings, thoughts, memories, and imagination. However, with consistent practice, being in the state of no mind becomes natural. Studies show that practicing 12 min/day for 2 weeks rewires the brain.

 

Try it out and see for yourself: no mind? No problem.

 

How to Practice:


  • At any time of day, either sit in a comfortable position, lay down, or walk at a calm pace

  • Bring your attention to your breath for a few moments, let it become slow and steady

  • Start to notice the mind

  • Watch the constant flow of thoughts, cravings, memories, imagination, etc.

  • Notice that you are witnessing the mind

  • See how you are not the mind, but the silent presence watching it

  • Release your attachment to the mind and remain in your silent nature

  • Feel into your silent nature for a moment

  • Then notice your experience, silently witness it

  • Remain in this way, unattached to the mind


Try this out, and let us know how it goes!
