Mind has no mind beyond its need to survive

Please read Distress  to understand science of mental disorder. 

Every moment we live is an event and every event creates emotions. Role of mind is to regulate, suppress, express or transmute an emotion. Take any thought and you will discover an emotion being represented. 

Mental disorder is a state where our mind is not in our control. Fully, partially or periodically. This is the state when mind begins to think on its own and we do not have control. If we want to change, we cannot change our thoughts. But this is rather normal and we experience such scenarios during the day at least a few times. Therefore, we all have mental disorder. We all know about our anger outburst. This is where it can get alarming. Mental disorder is a subject matter of prevention more than cure. Here is how to check if you shall be concerned about your mental health 

  1. Check for the periodicity, intensity and time interval of behavior or thoughts which occurs on its own and you have no control. For example: – anger outburst or feeling withdrawn or you discover yourself in loop of thoughts (onset of OCD) such as obsessed with promotion, relationship etc. 
  2. Has it started to affect your work? Your inability to focus on your work? You take longer time and struggle more for the task? This means your suppressed emotions (subconscious) has started interfering with your conscious mind. 

Its impact you can experience in 3 pillars of health and wellbeing 

  1. Heavy or jerky or rapid breath more often than before 
  2. Disturbed sleep or waking up with thoughts or emotions of the previous day 
  3. Lack of sexual desire or lack of spread through the body or obsessive sexual thoughts

The reason for mental disorder is as follows: 

  1. Every moment we live is an event 
  2. Every event creates emotions 
  3. We are conditioned to suppress emotions for survival 
  4. If mind is strong, it is able to keep emotions suppressed 
  5. If mind is not strong, then emotions when cannot be further kept under suppression or when mind is not occupied with issues of survival, begin to overpower mind and interfere with its ability to remain in focus 
  6. When such a scenario begins to grow in periodicity, intensity and time interval, we are classified as suffering with mental disorder.

Mental Disorder is a disease at the level of the mind. It occurs when the mind is losing control while trying to manage distress. Mental disorder is a state where your behavior is not in your control. You are aware that life is big and full of choices. You know that you are loved but your emotional body in distress is so deep into hopelessness that you do not see light, and you drown into the darkness. More often than not, the root cause of mental disorder is in your upbringing – when events of life in our childhood and adolescence make us feel we are not loved enough. This erodes our faith in life. This is the quickest way to feel hopeless. In formative years, if kids are brought up with love and acceptance, they are very unlikely to ever get into mental disorders in their adult life regardless of how impactful the events of adult life cause a state of hopelessness in them. Here are some of the early signs of mental disorders in healthy young people. 

  • Death in the family on which the child had not cried. Often grandparents are the ones with whom they are deeply attached. 
  • Temperature of their forehead remains higher than the temperature at the lower abdomen and at the feet. 
  • Breathing is shallow and may be jerky. 
  • Sleep is light or disrupted or full of high speed dreams, one after the other, leading to feeling exhausted upon waking up. 
  • Seeing colors in the dream. 
  • High temperature in the belly area, forehead and feet being cold. Child is holding lot of anger. 

Every one of us suffer with mental disorder however, not all of us are clinically in disorder state. Mental disorder occurs when events of life feel bigger than faith in life.

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
