Mind has no mind beyond its need to survive

Chapter Mental Body | Meditation the Cure | Naveen Varshneya

Please read Distress to understand science of mental disorder.

Every moment we live is an event and every event creates emotions. The role of the 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 the mind begins to think on its own and we do not have control. Even 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 outbursts. 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

Check for the periodicity, intensity and time interval of behavior or thoughts which occur on their own and you have no control over them. For example: – anger outburst or feeling withdrawn or you discover yourself stuck in a loop of thoughts (onset of OCD) such as obsessed with promotion, relationship etc.
Has it started to affect your work? You are unable to focus on your work? You take longer and struggle more for the task at hand? This means your suppressed emotions (subconscious) have started interfering with your conscious mind.
 You will experience its impact on the 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 of desire through the body or obsessive sexual thoughts.

The reason for mental disorder is as follows:

  • Every moment we live is an event
  • Every event creates emotions
  • We are conditioned to suppress emotions for survival
  • If mind is strong, it is able to keep emotions suppressed
  • 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.

When such a scenario begins to grow in periodicity, intensity and time interval, we are classified as suffering with mental disorder.

3. Cause of 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 the 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.
