Each mind pattern we have is like a woven thread hanging loose from the garment of the mind or egoic sense of self. If we know exactly where to pull the thread, we can unravel the whole thing in a relatively short space of time. If we can begin to see that everyone has these patterns and that they are there to actually help you, then we will be much more confident and successful in letting them go.
The pathway of mind is really only a process of actually deeply taking a look at our mind and asking why it works the way it does. Understanding leads to acceptance which will in turn lead to dissolving of the repetitive mind patterns that cause us so much suffering. Most of us spend our time consciously or unconsciously resisting our mind, wishing it would quieten down or stop altogether. This only serves to increase the noise it tends to make.
Please note that when I use the word “mind” or “ego” I mean the aspect of our mind which is somewhat dysfunctional, repetitive, doubting, judging and fearing etc. It is this aspect of our mind we would like to dissolve and transcend and not the useful, functional aspect of mind that reminds us that we have left the oven on or we are going to be late for work if we do not leave now. This healthy aspect of mind will still be available after you fully awaken to your True Self and live in, and as, the Freedom you are. In fact, you will be able to access your mind whenever you want or need to use it rather than being used by it.
This pathway will be particularly useful if you have an extremely noisy or overly analytical mind and find it challenging to sit and meditate. In this pathway we are using the faculties of the mind to aid in its own dissolution. Each person’s mind already has the wish to come to rest as the Effortless Self and will do so when given the right information. Just like a tiny splinter of wood can go unseen in your finger for a long time and yet cause a great deal of pain, so too can the wrong ideas cause unrest and unease within your mind. It is like an itch you cannot scratch or a wound that keeps on opening and never fully heals.
All we are going to do in this book with these processes is to give the mind the ability to see what the wrong ideas are finally. With that information we can finally come to see what has been causing our pain and choose to move beyond it.
