The War in our Mind

 

Last weekend in Sweden a Moslem man attempted to explode a huge bomb which would have left many dead and injured . Luckily he failed and blew himself up but less luckily in Pakistan, American drones have killed sixty people . This action has been defended saying the dead are militants but if history is anything to go by, we will probably find out at least some of the dead have nothing to do with the fighting .

Each side will justify their actions seeing their targets as the enemy in their warped minds . They have been brainwashed into thinking that the answer to their problems comes from murder . But where does the brainwashing come from ? The answer lies within our Mind .

Our Egoic mind believes in separation from each other and separation from our spiritual Self, and when it is threatened it will find an excuse to continue this separation . It is literally fighting for its survival and this is what is happening with the wars in the the world . It feeds off disharmony and hatred and will create events to nourish itself . It needs more and more as its energy banks are depleted to re-energise itself .

This mind believes that it needs an enemy . All of us create enemies and this mutual dislike is really an attempt by our Egoic mind to avoid joining with each other . We take sides but all this does is continue the pain within our Mind . We separate the world into Christians, Moslems, Buddhists etc but again this is an attempt to separate ourselves from the other faiths .

The answer lies in mentally not fighting and seeing others as ‘ the enemy ‘ . It is accepting others as they are, not how our mind tells us they should be . Dropping bombs solves nothing and the solution can only be found where the problem came from – the Mind .
